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:

How to Survive and Thrive after Brain Injury with Sheri McIntyre (episode 7 of Empty Nest Empires)

Click here to listen!

I met my guest, Sheri McIntyre, through the magic of social media. She reached out to me several months ago via Instagram messenger, and my life has not been the same since.

Sheri was in the best shape of her life – and (she thought) the best health of her life when the unthinkable happened – a sudden rupture of a brain aneurysm left her helpless on New Years Day, 2016. Helpless, yes. Hopeless, no. Something inside Sheri rose up with strength and fortitude and she was determined to do whatever it takes to get better. She slowly learned how to walk and talk again – and now, not even four years from that day – she has written a book.

I hope you will be inspired by Sheri’s story. She reminds us all to have hope in the darkest of times, and to always look for the light, and then work hard to keep reaching for it. Above all, Sheri would like everyone who hears her story to THINK.

Here are some resources we mentioned in this interview:

How to Be Healthy Enough with Amy Van Liew (Empty Nest Empires, episode 6)

Click here to listen!

Hi Empire Builders! I am really happy that my first episode after the introductions we’ve been doing is this one about being healthy enough. I’ve noticed a tendency to have an all or nothing mentality in this area. Every time we open a magazine or turn on the TV we are bombarded with images of others we would like to emulate, but really – it’s unattainable for most of us. So what do we do? We do nothing. 

My guest today is going to teach you a better way. A way to be healthy enough – for you. Amy Van Liew spent 26 years as an engineer for HP, and when she took early retirement at age 50, she knew she needed to improve her health. All those years of corporate sitting had taken a toll. So, she educated herself and now is helping midlifers find the balance they need to be healthy enough. Healthy enough to enjoy life on their terms. I hope this episode sparks some ideas for changes you can make to be your healthiest self.

Here are some of the resources we referenced in this interview:

Your Financial Empire – Pillar 5 of Empty Nest Empire Building (Empty Nest Empires Podcast, episode 5)

Click here to listen!

Okay. Did I save the best Empire Building pillar introduction for last? Or is it the worst? 

Love it or hate it, the idea of leaving a legacy always comes down to money, for most of us. Yes, the point of this podcast is that we build empires in so many different areas, which is why we introduced the five pillars of empire building – and we will tell stories from all of them.  Fitness, Fun. Family. Faith, and Finance…But that money thing? It’s the one that haunts us, am I right?

Maybe you’ve done just fine in this pillar of empire building. Or maybe you haven’t. Or maybe you are somewhere in between.

We will talk about all of it, and hear stories from the planners. The non planners, and even those who have successfully turned their finances around, even in their retirement years. Get ready for some ideas, some strategy, and some insight. 

Just a few of the questions we need to tackle are – 

Are you ready for retirement? Do you feel like you will never be able to retire? Did you invest wisely or live paycheck to paycheck? Did you teach your children about money or are they floundering as young adults? Are you generous, or do you feel like you need to keep every last penny because doggone it, you earned it? What will people say about your money skills when you’re gone? Do you even care? Does all this talk about manifesting and attracting money really work? And by the way, Where did our money mindset come from? Did your parents live through the great depression?  Did you grow up hearing your parents say things like “money doesn’t grow on trees!” and “ What do you think I am, made of money?” And finally, is it possible to rewire your brain to have a different attitude about money and lighten up on the self-imposed pressure a bit?

Oh boy. Money. Finances. We will talk to experts and non experts and hear their stories, and their advice – then, it’s up to you whether you take it to heart or not. We will discuss business ideas, how to crack the code in online marketing… and let me reiterate here – YOU ARE NOT TOO OLD, AND IT’S NEVER TOO LATE. I might go on a tangent here, this is one of my pet peeves… every week I hear someone say things like, “I don’t do email because I’m old.” (uhhh my mom learned how to email in her 80s and was delighted to have a new way to connect with people – it was so much easier for her than hand writing notes..) I think if my mom was still with us, she would have had a blast doing live videos on Instagram and Facebook…. So, lose that limiting belief, okay???

I cannot wait to see what shows up as we unpack and learn new things together…Are you ready?
