The Love Is Viral Show Episode 93: The Universe Listens To Brave with Dr. Rebecca Ray

Dr. Rebecca Ray wants to help you define your life as brave. Using information collected from thousands of hours of working one on one with clients in her private practice, talking about their innermost vulnerabilities, she realized the overwhelming need to help others in overcoming their fear. Dr Rebecca Ray is an Author, Speaker, and Clinical Psychologist. She uses a science-backed, heart and hard truth approach to helping big-picture-thinking female entrepreneurs live a life that’s fulfilling, unapologetic, and free. 

In this episode, we discuss: 

How to overcome fear

What it means to self-sabotage

The need to validate our real human experience, and the suffering and discomfort that can come along with it 

The importance of self-awareness, and knowing when we are not living a life that is consistent with who we truly want to be

And the steps needed to create a brave and courageous life that is aligned with that vision of our future self.

Rebecca has been a Clinical Psychologist for the best part of two decades and is the creator of digital courses including Overcoming Self-Sabotage: From Paralysis to Progress and Radical Courage: Transforming Fear into Freedom. She is the author of The Art of Self-Kindness, The Universe Listens to Brave and Be Happy: 35 Powerful Methods for Personal Growth and Well-Being.

Adriana Lee is all about self discovery and empowerment through yoga. She teaches her students how to breathe, how to feel, and how to get reacquainted with their bodies. She found yoga at a young age, but it didn’t make an imprint until later when she utilized it to navigate a challenging relationship followed by a challenging divorce. 

In this episode we discuss:

The value of movement in processing our emotions and feeling more deeply into our bodies

Why spiritual bypassing and toxic positivity are so last year

The importance of feeling your way through your triggers

and why we must listen to our bodies.

Adriana’s intention is to share what she has learned about the magic of movement & the bliss of being. She is a yoga teacher trainer leads 200 hour certification classes.

The Love Is Viral Show Episode 91: The Era of Connectedness with Mory Fontanez

Mory Fontanez forecasts a new era of business that will emphasis the importance of emotional intelligence and create seismic shifts in the behaviors leaders will have to embody in order to be successful. Mory is a Purpose Coach and the Founder and CEO of 822 Group. 

After a successful career in corporate America, a critical truth became clear to Mory – many companies operate without a true sense of purpose because their leaders do not understand their own higher purpose. Many hardened business executives still operate from a place of scarcity and fear rather than alignment with their higher calling. They have lost their connection with their own GPS. This non-alignment shows up in many ways in the day-to-day operations of companies and, they need a new system.

In this episode we discuss:

The shift from an old framework of power dynamics to one of connection, empathy, social good, and success.

Why leaders need to find their purpose again and allow mission-driven values to embed themselves into the company DNA

The value of investing in leadership

and why performance reviews should be reviewed and possibly even.. blown up.

The daughter of Iranian immigrants, Mory spent her childhood in New Mexico and Colorado before relocating to Maryland. She climbed the corporate ladder to become a Managing Director of Strategy at a global PR firm. As a woman of color in a white and male dominated corporate world, she leaned in to her differences, seeing them as her superpower rather than an obstacle. This instilled a strong sense of loyalty and respect from her co-workers and employees which greatly influences Mory’s coaching methodology to this day.

I absolutely agreed with Mory’s premise that employees and clients want more.. and that is what they deserve. I share in her excitement for what is to come. 

You can find Mory online at 822group.com, on LinkedIn Learning, or IG @moryfontanez

The Love Is Viral Show Episode 90: The Sisterhood is Real with Kimberly Trueba

Kimberly Trueba was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada in April 2018 after a nationwide executive search. An experienced executive with twenty-five years of design and business strategy, organizational development, and operations expertise, Trueba oversees a robust Girl Scouts council of girls and volunteers in six counties.

Prior to joining Girl Scouts, Trueba served in an executive leadership role with Forté Specialty Contractors, a construction firm specializing in building experiential environments in the hospitality, restaurant, and entertainment industries. A second-generation design professional, Trueba began her career as a Design and Development Manager with Walt Disney Imagineering for projects such as World of Disney, Disney’s Old Key West Resort, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, among many others. 

In this episode, we discuss: 

The importance of an all-girl environment of sisterhood and support

The incredible stats – All female US Secretaries of State, 71% of female U.S. Senators, 59% of women currently serving in the 116th Congress and 53% of female entrepreneurs and business owners are Girl Scout alums

Why we need men to support girls

And the importance of connection for the mental health of children during this uncertain time.

Under her leadership as CEO, Girl Scouts was the recipient of the largest single private gift in Girl Scouts of the USA history with the donation of 70 acres of property and land from the Charles and Phyllis M. Frias Charitable Trust valued at nearly $9 million. 

I love Kimberly’s perspective on women’s empowerment being motivated by respect and love. We need more of that!

The Love Is Viral Show Episode 89: Our Wiser Sons with Rocky Garza

Rocky Garza knows first hand how difficult it can be to identify what makes us unique having moved 10 times during childhood. Caught in insecurities and fears,  looking outward he was never able to see his real value or worth. That is until he took a step back and had a long hard look at WHO he was, not just WHAT he did.

Over the past 15 years, Rocky has walked alongside thousands of individuals at Sky Ranch Summer Camp as Director and counseled and supported hundreds while on the pastoral staff at Chase Oaks Church. Now, as a top keynote speaker and culture consultant, he has taken thousands through the Identity Mapping™ process. As a result, they have all been led to understand the most vivid picture of who they are and how they operate best as individuals.

In this episode, we discuss:  

The purpose of identity

The beauty of different perspectives

The pressure that society’s definition of “success” has placed on men, causing them to abandon themselves

The importance of men creating space for one another to share their internal dialogue

And what we can do to support and empower our boys and men.

Rocky leads a group called Wiser Sons for men to show up and be seen.

I love Rocky’s advice to be willing to put in the work to know and love yourself, and when you look in the mirror, believe what you see is good. 

You can find Rocky online at rockygarza.com and on Facebook and Instagram @rockygarza

Sarah is the author of The Women’s Brain Book—The neuroscience of health, hormones and happiness, and the director of The Neuroscience Academy, which offers professional development program in applied neuroscience and brain health. In 2019, Sarah hosted an episode of ABC Catalyst exploring brain health, bio-hacking and longevity. 

Sarah lives on Sydney’s Northern Beaches with her Irish husband and together they are raising two surfer dudes.

Vipul Bhesania, also known as V, has spent the last year in deep reflection, with a desire to find out what is truly important. Delving deeper into the realm of consciousness, his focus has been on strengthening his awareness of self by questioning what is no longer serving him on his journey, and releasing all that was not in alignment with where he is going.

In this episode, we discuss:  

How the label of a diagnosis can limit our capacity to heal, ultimately holding us back from achieving more in life.

How the power of visualization can be used to help us heal past trauma. 

Why anger isn’t bad and why we should see it as a secondary emotion offering us an opportunity to explore…
