Ernestine Tebon-Spreemann had her first experience with making extra money by selling mangoes at age 8 in Camaroon, West Africa. She has been hooked on the side hustle ever since. Fast forward to now, and she transformed her failing brick and mortar consignment shop into an online shopping experience on the Poshmark app. Still working her 9 to 5 job, Ernestine believes everyone can and should have a way to make money on the side. In this interview, she will inspire you to find things in your own closet to begin a side hustle selling what you no longer need or wear. Who knows? This may develop into a great income, or even a full time reselling business! (FYI, Ernestine makes about $1,000 for every $200 she spends at a thrift store.)

A God You’ve Never Met with Author Nikki Romani (Empty Nest Empires podcast, episode 23)

Click here to listen

Today’s episode is a very special interview with my daughter, Nikki Romani. Nikki has written and published her first book – available now on Amazon (nikkiromani.com/book). We talk about her experiences on the World Race, an 11 month missions trip, where her experiences led her to know the God she had never met – the Holy Spirit.

Do the miracles and spiritual encounters in the Bible still happen today? This is a question Nikki asked herself. She grew up going church and reading the Bible, but felt as though something was missing; an unexplainable power not of this world. Nikki started hearing stories of others experiencing miracles and she came to a point in her life she wanted to experience them too. She didn’t realize the same power she read about in the Bible was living inside of her from the moment she asked Jesus into her heart. That power is the Holy Spirit. Through Nikki’s desire to learn more about the Holy Spirit, she encountered Him in ways she never dreamed she would – from seeing angels, to witnessing miracles. You can encounter Him in this way too. In A God You’ve Never Met, you will learn: What it means to release control and surrender, What Scripture says about the Holy Spirit, How to hear the voice of God, How to discover your spiritual gifts, How to “see” in the spiritual realm. Are you ready to meet a God you’ve never met?

I woke up one morning this week with this phrase running through my mind: “YOUR STORY MAY HOLD A KEY TO UNLOCK HEALING FOR SOMEONE ELSE.”

How to Have Confident Brilliance with Renita D. Terry (Empty Nest Empires Podcast, episode 20)

Click here to listen!

Renita has always introduced herself as a 5th generation educator and 3rd generation musician. While she has years of experience in the corporate world, she is now driven to transition out of that role and help others design a life of Confident Brilliance.

Renita says in order to show up for the world, we all need to operate from a place of confidence, in spite of the fact that we all may fight imposter syndrome. To practice showing up is what gives you confidence. 

In this episode, Renita says that we all are probably more brilliant than we realize. She lays out steps to unlock that brilliance in a way that makes sense for everyone. Whether you are in a time of transition and exploring your options, or you know the direction you are going and just need to connect with your brilliance on a deeper level of confidence, you’ll enjoy this interview with Renita D. Terry.

Renita says it’s important to ask yourself these two questions:

Where have you shown up lately?

Where do you show up on a consistent basis?

Renita says the goal to showing up consistently is to create a system.

Redefining Life When the Nest is Empty with Author Mel Greenberg (Empty Nest Empires Podcast, episode 16)

Click here to listen

I’ve got a special treat for you today – my guest is Mel Greenberg, author of Running With Our Eyes Closed and contributor to Chaos to Clarity: Sacred Stories of Transformational Change.

Don’t you just love how things can unexpectedly come together on the internet? Mel and I met just over a week ago on Instagram, and I suspect this is just the beginning of a longtime connection. I think you will be inspired by Mel. Her story of redefining her life through a cancer diagnosis and the woes of a sudden empty nest will leave you with hope for your own future.

Mel is the married mother of two sons in their early twenties. She worked as a copywriter and producer in radio and television before having children and making the decision to stay at home with them full-time. Once she became an empty nester, Mel struggled to find her voice and direction. Ultimately, it was her passion for writing and the discovery that she was not alone that led her to write. 

I hope you will connect with Mel and let her know how her story helped you!
