Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 72: Rise Up with David Trotter

David Trotter believes you are Divinely created and have a unique purpose in this world. After experiencing his own rock bottom after many years as a pastor, his true life calling came into view.

In this episode we talk about the difference between a rock bottom and a rock “middle,” why self awareness is incredibly important, and how to get your needs met in both an unselfish and highly empowered way.

David Trotter is an author, speaker, transformation coach, and host of Inspiration Rising, a podcast dedicated to inspiring women (and the men who support them) to rise up in life, love, and leadership. He is the author of “Empowered to Rise: The Secret to Embracing Your True Identity, Uncovering Your Super Powers, and Bringing Your Inspiration to the World,” and through his Launch Your Life coaching program, he helps women (and men) overcome difficult life transitions and develop a workable plan to make lasting changes. For over 25 years, David has helped people get unstuck, clarify their goals, and take their lives to the next level through his leadership, speaking, writing, and filmmaking. David and his wife, Laura, have been married for over 25 years and live in southern California with their two almost-grown kids.

I love David’s reminder that hopes and dreams are great, but intentionality and action are where the magic becomes felt.

You can find David and his podcast at insporising.com and follow him on social media @insporising.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 70: The Mindful Family with Dr. Christopher Willard

Dr. Christopher Willard (PsyD) wrote the book on breathing, literally, and believes mindfulness should be taught in schools and around the globe. He is a psychologist and educational consultant and has been practicing meditation for 20 years. He has led hundreds of workshops around the world, with invitations to more than two dozen countries.

Today we dig into the importance of mindfulness in children as suicide rates are on the rise with more anxiety and depression in this vulnerable population than ever before. He shares how important it is for parents to lead the way, and offers a few tips and tricks he uses with his own son. 

Dr. Willard currently serves on the board of directors at the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy, and is the president of the Mindfulness in Education Network. He has presented at TEDx conferences and his thoughts have appeared in the New York Times, The Washington Post, mindful.org, and elsewhere.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 69: Mom & Boss with Mary Beth Ferrante

Mary Beth Ferrante believes you should bring your whole self to work and that the only way we can provide communities of support within the workplace, is to lead the conversation. She is a mom of 2, fiercely advocating for millennial working parents.

Today we talk about our own experiences as new moms in high functioning roles, how to manage our personal relationships, and why it is so important for companies to break down the Maternal Wall.

Mary Beth is the Co-Founder of WRK/360, an engagement platform for organizations to retain and attract talent by transforming workplace cultures to better support working parents and all caregivers. As a former SVP in the finance industry, she always valued growing her career and like so many other career-driven mamas, she was surprised to hit the Maternal Wall. Her own experience propelled her to dive deeper into maternal bias, to influence changes to workplace culture and to advocate for a national paid leave policy. She is regular contributor Forbes on the intersection of work and parenting and her work has been regularly featured in Today, Working Mother, FairyGodBoss, ScaryMommy, and more.

I loved Mary Beth’s reminder that communication is everything, especially in our personal relationships, and to communicate with our children, not around them. Talk, talk, talk, people. It saves your sanity.

She has worked with over 100 clients across the United States, Canada, Yemen, France, Ireland, South Africa, and more.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 66: Define “All” with Amy Nelson

Amy Nelson has become one of my personal heroes. She unapologetically shows the world that career and family are intertwined. She brings her daughter, Holland, with her to board meetings and believes the conversation surrounding whether women can “have it all” is sexist.

Amy is the founder and CEO of The Riveter, a modern union for working women. A graduate of Emory University and the NYU School of Law, Amy practiced corporate litigation with a focus on high-profile First Amendment matters for over a decade in New York City and Seattle. She also served on President Obama’s National Finance Committee where she co-chaired Gen44, the under 40 fundraising arm of the campaign. Additionally, Amy previously worked with President Carter’s The Carter Center.

In 2017, Amy launched The Riveter while pregnant with her third daughter in three years and she welcomed daughter number four in June 2019. The Riveter’s growth has outpaced even WeWork’s first years, and to-date they’ve raised over $20 million in venture capital. Amy is a contributor for Inc., has written for Forbes, and has been published broadly including in/on outlets including The TODAY Show, Refinery29, Buzzfeed, The Washington Post and The Seattle Times. She has spoken across the world on many stages, including Forbes Under 30, United State of Women, Cannes Lions, and SXSW.

Today Amy and I talk about the importance of inclusive work environments, the “messy” balance of a mom and executive, and her desire for her daughters to grow up feeling unlimited. 

I love Amy’s advocacy for women in the workplace and the work she is doing to change the conversation. You can find her on Instagram @amy_riveter.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 65: Surrender To Solitude with Valerie Gangas

Valerie Gangas lost her mother in 2011 and experienced profound life-shattering grief. It was a huge turning point in her life, as it caused her to go into a deep suicidal depression, “a complete annihilation of who I she was.” Shortly after her mother’s death, Valerie learned Transcendental Meditation™ and in her first meditation, she says, “my entire life radically changed in 20 minutes.” The spiritual awakening she experienced was a foundational shift and a powerful transformation in both her awareness and her life. (Hence, the name of her upcoming podcast is: “Everything You Think You Know Is Wrong!”)

Valerie is a transformational speaker, life coach and author of Enlightenment Is Sexy: Every Woman’s Guide to a Magical Life. She specializes in helping people make radical shifts in their self-perception to gain a deeper understanding of who they are, so they can genuinely thrive and unleash their magic more fully into the world.

Growing up outside Chicago, Illinois, Valerie had an interest in the mysteries of the world and a strong drive to connect with the Universe, which she inherited from her mother who was a poet, former nun and a major influence in Valerie’s life. 

Valerie received her bachelor’s degree in theology and women’s studies from DePaul University, and earned her master’s degree in transpersonal psychology and certification in leadership and life coaching at Sofia University in Palo Alto. 

The David Lynch Foundation hired Valerie to give talks about the benefits of meditation and developing consciousness within corporations (including respected advertising and financial firms), private practices and student groups at top schools around the country, such as Loyola University School of Medicine. She eventually began working directly with Oprah Winfrey and her staff at Harpo Studios, and for two years she talked to groups of Oprah’s staff members about meditation and consciousness. 

Valerie sums up her philosophy for optimal living: “Once you’re regularly tuning in to your soul’s voice, through daily meditation, prayer, nature walks, whatever works for you, follow the signs, embrace the mystery, and trust the Universe.” 

I loved this episode, I love this woman. So many tears were shed while we talked and I hope you took something beautiful away that just might change your life.. or your perspective.

Lisa Chastain believes that all roads begin at our values and our alignment to them. She shares the importance of our priorities, our ability to say no and how to call yourself out when you have moved out of alignment.

Lisa has been coaching, mentoring and advising millennials for nearly 20 years. From an advisor in higher education to Financial Advisor and as a seasoned life coach, she has learned what it takes to make dreams become reality.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 63: Manifest Your Dream Life with Kristin Morrison

Kristin Morrison went from writing “I wish I could get paid to walk a dog” in her journal, to launching her own million-dollar pet business — recently featured in MarketWatch, New York Post and a TV interview with Yahoo Finance.

A master manifestor, Kristin not only manifested her business, she also manifested her husband and her home. She is proof that intention, self awareness, and a little bit of Universal magic, pay off in big, beautiful ways. 

She now shares her business insight with thousands of clients through her books, online courses, and podcast, “Prosperous Pet Business.” 

Kristin is the Founder of Six-Figure Pet Business Academy, a program she started in 2010 for service-based pet business owners including pet sitters, dog walkers, dog trainers, pet groomers, and dog daycare owners. In 2012, Kristin became a certified “Best Year Yet” coach, and created Best Year Coaching, a company that helps individuals from all walks of life and professions, plan and achieve their dream life list, from their personal goals to their business goals. 

Today Kristin and I dig into the value of patience, the grind of entrepreneurship, and how in the world she manifested the man of her dreams. 

I LOVED everything about this conversation. Write it down. Believe it. Work on you and watch the Universe rise up to meet you.
