From Heart Disease to Helping Moms Find Peace – It’s Mother’s Turn with Elizabeth Hughes-Callison (Empty Nest Empires podcast, episode 18)

Click here to listen

Elizabeth Hughes-Callison has an incredible story of surviving a heart defect that doctors failed to diagnose in her childhood. As a young mom, she pushed through the rigors of motherhood and working full time until she reached a point of crisis in her health and needed life-saving open heart surgery. Elizabeth slowly learned she must care for herself first in order to be able to care for others later. Now, she mentors other moms who are reaching the point of no return in their health and exhaustion by encouraging them that it’s okay to make changes that will improve their quality of life. It’s your turn, mama.

Oh boy, scroll through Instagram or Facebook today and you’ll see just how rough January was for so many… well, the good news is, January is OVER and now we can move on! Let’s not waste time on how January came with all the big expectations, but didn’t live up to them – let’s roll into February with a new focus, new hope and new drive to make it even better.

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!

Review Your Past Year and Set Yourself Up for Success in the New Year with Tammy Helfrich (episode 13, Empty Nest Empires podcast)

Click here to listen

My guest today is Tammy Helfrich. Tammy is a life coach, speaker, writer and podcast host. Her intuitive way of coaching has helped so many women sort through the internal clutter and fully become their authentic selves.  

In this episode, Tammy and I dive in to her process of reviewing the past year, so that we can have realistic expectations and can set goals for the coming year. So before you get hung up on what goals to set for 2020, I hope you’ll listen to our chat and do a thorough review of 2019 first.

I love Tammy’s ability to help women dream again. She walks women through what they need to do to think on these things and find out what can bring them to being truly healthy. She shares her own journey through this process, and talks about how she woke up to the fact that it’s not selfish to learn to take care of ourselves. 

Tammy has some great tips on choosing a theme word for the year and how that might help push you forward. Above all, the key is to find what works for YOU. 

I hope you loved hearing from Tammy Helfrich today, and that you will follow up with her. Would you let her know you heard this episode? Here’s how to connect with her:

Tammy is offering a group coaching program beginning in January of 2020 – you can find out more about that here: http://www.tammyhelfrich.com/coaching

You Are Not Too Old and It’s Not Too Late! (episode 11, Empty Nest Empires Podcast)

Click here to listen

Oh boy, not much frustrates me more than when I hear someone say “I don’t do that thing  because I’m OLD.” And I hear it more often than I’d like. You can fill in the blank with things like “email” “get a new smart phone” “learn a new skill” “run a marathon” “write a book” etc. etc. but the message is the same: “I think I’m too old to learn to do a new thing.” 

Well, I’m here to debunk that attitude. In this episode, I’ll share from a list of people who became famous or tried something new or conquered a new milestone after age 40. One even said, “my 90’s were the most productive years of my life.” (It’s my goal to be able to say that one day, by the way…) This is by no means an exhaustive list, but if it helps to make you think about trying something new, then my mission is accomplished. In addition to these more well-known people, we all know someone older who ignores their age and does interesting things anyway, and we secretly admire them. 

So let’s lose that self-imposed roadblock and try new things, shall we? 

Send me a DM or comment on one of my Instagram posts with what you’ll be doing, in spite of your age! 😉 I’m @tamiromani on every platform, but here’s the direct link to my Instagram.

If you are interested in having a support system as you explore something new, then you should be in The Empire Builders Collective, a VIP group where we talk about what you should do and how to accomplish it. Doors will open early next year, so hop on the waiting list here: tamiromani.com/vipwaitlist
