Leading with Kindness, Taking a Chance, and Saying YESSSS!

Season 2, Ep. 3

Tracy's husband, Dave Parkinson, had a radio show when they were in their mid-'20s, in which she started participating as an anti-racist activist. Both Tracy and Dave had strong convictions against racism, poverty, and all kind of injustices, and one day, destiny dropped Jimmy Dennis' case on their laps. Mr. Dennis was convicted for robbing and murdering a 17 years old girl in Philadelphia and sentenced to death at 21. Tracy decided to write him a letter, asking for information about his case, and what she got back would change her life. Dennis sent a 28 pages-long letter with information and legal documents proving his innocence; Tracy and Dave believed him. From that day, they started advocating for Dennis' innocence and liberation. More than 20 years later, Jimmy Dennis proved his innocence and walked free, but that was a tiny piece of Tracy's fantastic story.

Listen, Learn, and Lean Into the Goodness of Hemp Oil with Peter Cousineau

Season 2, Ep. 8
Although Peter Cousineau always had a strong calling for helping others and always wanted to experiment with homeopathy and medicinal plants, he needed to earn a living when he moved to Vermont 22 years ago. He postponed his original plan and used his farming and gardening knowledge to start his own farm. Still, some things are simply meant to be, and regardless of what happens in the middle, they end up happening. Peter's mother needed major surgery on her shoulder, and despite the doctor's reluctance, she decided to use hemp's CBD and tincture to deal with the pain instead of using opioids. She navigated her recovery with minimal discomfort. That was it, Peter decided to blend his farm, his desire of helping others, and the ancestral knowledge his part-Native American grandmother kept alive in the family to produce hemp derivates. Peter Cousineau is the Founder and CEO of Rēl Hemp, a company that offers quality CBD products grown on their farm. He has over 20 years of experience in the horticulture and agriculture industry, building 3 successful businesses in the process.

Discovering your Emotional intelligence with Dr. Stevie Dawn

Season 2, Ep. 7
Although many people see emotional intelligence as a soft skill, Dr. Stevie Dawn thinks the opposite; it is a hard skill for her. And she goes even further. Before anything, she stops and asks herself why her brain is pushing her in that direction? To Dr. Stevie, emotions are a byproduct of a hormonal response to a mental trigger, meaning every emotion has a thought behind it. To understand and have more control over our emotions, we need to step back a bit and look for the thought that triggered that emotion. Our guest, Dr. Stevie Dawn, is a Keynote Speaker, Consultant, Coach, Author, Corporate Trainer, and the CEO and Founder of Stevie Dawn Inspires, LLC. She helps those who have unrealized profits, un-lived aspirations, and underwhelming results. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Small Business Administration from Union University, a Master's Degree in Sociology from Wichita State University, and a Ph.D. in Community College Leadership from Colorado State University. In this episode, our conversation revolves around a different perspective of what emotional intelligence really is. We travel back in time to the moment Dr. Stevie decided to investigate more about emotional intelligence, a decision that would change her life. We learn to use our feelings to leverage our day rather than letting them put us down, and much more. We also analyze the different relationships men and women have with their emotions; we talk about our mantras, the enneagram, and much more. Some Questions I Ask:Why did you decide to actually focus on emotional intelligence? (7:09)How has studying emotional intelligence impacted your life? (10:17)What does arguing from an emotional intelligence perspective looks like? (10:48)Let's say I want to go for a promotion at my job. How do I do it without having to defend myself?
