Bruce Van Horn is BACK! It’s been a while since Bruce and I did a show together and it felt like the perfect time to bring him back and learn what he has been up to. It turns out he has a very interesting new project starting up next week. I also wanted to hear about his recent podcast interview with Serena Dyer (Wayne Dyer’s daughter) as I had seen her and Wayne speak in person a few years ago and knew how very special she is.
Excited to share a powerful and insightful conversation I had recently with my friend and coaching client, Karen Norris.
Karen is a commercial real estate agent in the Reno, NV/Lake Tahoe/Truckee, CA area. We’ve been working together this past year as Karen’s been building a truly exceptional and thriving business in a compassionate, empathetic and caring way.

Michael is a financial advisor with Natural Investments, LLC and recently co-wrote a book titled, The Resilient Investor and I knew you would find Michael’s story about how he came into natural investing inspiring.

When we met by phone or Skype I would give an quick introduction, guide us through a mini-meditation and then ask them to share what they were ready to change in their relationship with money. I would then dive into their money …
Working as a financial advisor I saw firsthand what happens when families don’t plan for the unexpected and since then I’ve encouraged people to find solid solutions for their life insurance needs. When I met John “Hutch” Hutchinson recently at an Infusionsoft conference and found out that he shows entrepreneurs how to build their own tax-exempt bank using life insurance AND he enjoys attending personal development retreats, I knew…

Plus is it not priceless to care about the world we are leaving to future generations?
Wow, Wow, Wow… from the minute Ed Bracey reached out to me I knew we were destined to become fast friends. He really knows what it means to navigate the difficulties of life and come through it as a hero.
