56: Allison Carmen – The Gift of Maybe

56 Allison Carmen

Allison Carmen joins us for an Uphill Conversation on “The Gift of Maybe.” We discuss how Maybe had changed her life and the lives of others by allowing them to remain open to possibilities.

As a life coach, business consultant and author, Allison Carmen has developed the simple life philosophy called “Maybe” to help people deal with the uncertainty of life. She has successfully applied the philosophy to help her clients, who range from entrepreneurs and owners of multi-million dollar companies to artists, actors, writers, fashion designers, attorneys, health care workers, parents, nannies and the homeless. Allison has witnessed hundreds of people, regardless of present circumstances, who had the courage to step into the realm of Maybe improve their lives. Full bio here.

Show Notes: 

  • Our society’s addiction to certainty
  • Optimism and our ability to take perceived negative occurrences in stride
  • Having control vs. fear of the unknown
  • Awareness and curiosity
  • Put your emphasis on the journey
  • Beauty of presence and being open to all of life’s possibilities

episode-22-JLD-JohnLeeDumas

John Lee Dumas is the host of EOFire, an award winning Podcast where he interviews today’s most successful Entrepreneurs 7-days a week. JLD has interviewed over 1400 Entrepreneurs and EOFire has over 1 million monthly listens. John is the author of the record-setting Freedom Journal and his next book, The Mastery Journal, launches its Kickstarter campaign on January 23, 2017. It was an honor to speak with John because his book, The Freedom Journal, was central in my journey to launching the Uphill Conversations podcast in 2016.

Show Notes:

  • John points out the value of improving upon your strengths rather than trying to overcome your weaknesses
  • A quick overview of the Mastery Journal: a 100 day guide to mastering productivity, discipline and focus
  • Tools to accomplish one goal in 100 days via The Freedom Journal
  • The necessity of continuing to dig into your goals once you’ve accomplished them
  • Best practices for keeping yourself fresh
  • The value of doing things that DON’T scale (i.e. 1:1 interactions)
  • How meditation is a daily and important practice
  • How to maintain a growth mindset in a fast-moving world
  • Examples of how John consistently pushes himself outside of his comfort zone to maintain momentum

20: The Gift of Presence

episode-20

In this season of giving it is important to remember the gift we can be to others with our presence.

“As we let our own light shinewe unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

19: LaRae Quy – Mental Toughness

EP19 - LaRae Quy

LaRae Quy was an FBI counterintelligence and undercover agent who exposed foreign spies and recruited them to work for the U.S. Government. A good FBI counterintelligence investigation uncovers new information about the spy to gain deeper insights into what influences their behavior and attitudes. LaRae’s job was to dig beneath the surface, probe the unknown, and discover their identity. In the process, she ended up knowing more about the foreign spy than they knew about themselves.

LaRae was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Wyoming where she learned many of the survival skills she would need as an FBI agent. After twenty years as an undercover and counterintelligence agent, LaRae became the spokesperson for the FBI in Northern California for four years. Although the job description had changed, she used the same set of communication skills to present both a compelling message and positive image of the FBI.

LaRae completed graduate studies at Arizona State University before joining the FBI. She has also completed graduate studies at San Francisco Theological Seminary.
