Always out for an adventure, Kiki followed up by joining the band She Demons, created by The Misfits’ Jerry Only. Her venture providing an opportunity for touring internationally and nationally in the fall of 2015 as direct support for the Misfits. The band name was later changed to Hellfire Heart.

Married But living AS Roommates – Therapy

Stop being Married living as roommates

Allen and Taila Wagner are

 both Marriage and Family Therapists who run a successful practice in Los Angeles. We cater mostly to high-performance individuals. Included in this demographic are heads of an industry at the top of their fields in business, entertainment, and technology. Allen and Talia’s focus is on relationships, internal and external,  including the relationship they have with themselves. The Wagners assist clients in moving past their own limitations to do the self-work necessary to create real-life possibilities in reaching their desired goals.

Times Change

In today’s climate, as the old business model is floundering, entrepreneurship is more important than ever. Some of us see this changing tide and jump right in the workspace.  Some individuals in society are confident abilities to change the world, while others lag behind. Often may are uncertain and unsure of how to push themselves forward in a changing landscape.  Allen and Talia’s have seen while all individuals are capable of amazing feats, many people allow the narrative in their heads to stop the momentum of success.

Mind Talk and Expectations

It is often our own mindset and internal negative self-talk that serves as a barrier to reaching fantastic achievements overall. Each individual has great ideas but let fear and trepidation discourage and derail from making massive strides forward. We dwell on past failures and self-doubt over our abilities eat away at our motivation and drive. We focus on the problems rather than moving forward towards solutions.

Not only is this true in the professional realm, but it is also often very evident in our home lives. When the relationship with our significant other flails and becomes lackluster, not only does it have a cascading effect on other areas of life, but we allow it to rob us of possibilities and growth. People resign themselves to just dealing with the status quo and do not take the steps to remove the obstacles in their path and build that spectacular life they dream about.

 

 

Married roommates quiz link

We go into more detail about this phenomenon in romantic relationships in our new book, Married Roommates: How to go from a relationship that just survives to a marriage that thrives, and would be happy to send you a copy.

During the show we discuss improving their chances for relationship success, teaching them to create their own advantages and propellers forward by focusing on what stops them internally from making their professional and personal goals a reality.

Heather Hawkins – PR Major Metros and Maroon 5 to Mountains

Heather Hawkins 

My story: I’m a Los Angeles-born, San Francisco-finished and New York City-hardened PR professional who’s worked with Sony, Sega, divisions of Apple, CLIF Bar- even David Bowie and Maroon 5! I’ve helped clients build their brands through exposure in the New York Times, Associated Press, Men’s Health, MTV, CNN, even on the cover of the TV Guide. (Appearing in many of these outlets myself.)

Two years ago, I left the big city life behind, packed up my family and my dog and we moved to Truckee, CA, a small mountain town 20 minutes from the shore of Lake Tahoe. I started a visibility agency, Elevation Strategy, but, within about 18 months, I had an epiphany– the agency model simply will never work for the solo business owners and aspiring personal brands that I really wanted to work with.

What’s more, they were being lied to by “The PR Agency-Industrial-Complex”– a deception I’d been a part of!

Now, I’m on a mission to empower entrepreneurs with the knowledge that, not only CAN they do their own PR, they can do it more effectively than an agency AND become a better business owner in the process. And, all they have to BE is who they already ARE, that’s right, solo business owners have the ONE THING media wants more than anything– radical authenticity and an unfiltered point of view.
