The Charles Dickens process, success without feeling successful, and a new chapter

Carmody touches on his significant experience in helping brands in doing content marketing and finding an authentic voice, etc. How his life was on the wrong track, and he started transforming his life with Tony Robbins. He knew it was time for big change, lost a lot of weight, ran his first marathon, now training for an Iron Man, and aiming to take it to the highest level possible and being the person he was born to be. Recalling how the moment of discovery was during the Charles Dickens process, knowing why you want to do things, visualizing his own death, breaking a lot of unhealthy habits, seeing his children crying over his grave, growing up Catholic and being very spiritual, until a priest violated him and he allowed himself to take his own faith away, evaporating faith. Being successful and doing well, but not feeling it inside. Carmody felt he would steal his life from his children, that he’d be a thief. The ability to go back to the moment of spiritual awakening like a flash, and how he now believes in an interconnected web of existence, and disassociating spirituality from the priest incident as a child. Trying to find how to integrate that with his business world, using the loss of a major client as an opportunity to begin a new chapter, focusing on things that really matter, and just “being here”.

Balance, pace, and positivity in entrepreneurialism…

Veronica Owens, Co-Founder of TiM (a web based digital on-boarding system for the entertainment industry – bio) joins Julie Chan for an emotional and revealing mini intuitive reading, interpretation and coaching at the MouthMedia Network Studio at Voyager HQ.

Fixing a problem, loss, tragedy and challenges, and an Inner Empowerment Tool Kit

Owens discusses how work in film production made her and her business partner realize how inefficient the on-boarding systems were, no one would complain or solve the issues, so they risked everything to try to solve it. Freelancers work long days, no one feels responsible to fix problem because no overarching system, moving job to job, not really “your problem” to fix it. Their system allows the same crewmember to fill out what normally would be massive physical paperwork by submitting with a few clicks. She stresses that TiM wasn’t fully and solely their idea, but instead “everyone’s idea”. Creating something from scratch is challenging and rewarding, startups are soul incubators, scary and empowering that it can stop existing at any moment, anything is real if you believe in it, having to let go of external things you define yourself with, everything around you can crumble to bits, but finding strength in yourself no matter what‘s crumbling around you. A pivotal moment of loss, tragedy and challenges. Losing everything around her, she hadn’t nourished her own happiness. Everyone has the power to create and shape their future, remembering what you love outside of work, needing to be able to believe in yourself first. Anything can change in a moment, but one’s own strength can’t be taken. An Inner Empowerment Tool Kit, chanting, Buddhism, yoga, how she found that kit and how she lost it. Needing to get them back, easy to be hard on yourself, easy to be sad. Eating right helps with stress too, and support from others is important.

The informal studies of Dr. Penny Montgomery on biofeedback and how they found long chains of beta waves in the brain creating more energy in brain, less stress and ability to be focused and clear. And alpha waves, and what this means for people who can be headed on a downward path if they are not already doing something.
