It’s always thrilling when you have powerful women all in one place, and it’s no different on What Women Want Talk Radio when we have game-changing guests like award-winning director, producer and screen-writer Leslie Zemeckis as well as author of Joy, Joy, Joy Ellen Wood. Listen to our latest show where we delve into Leslie’s Red Carpet life along with her new movie premiere about the first tiger trainer back in the early 1900’s and Ellen’s fix for living the strongest, longest life that you possibly can:
I call it an industry that is exploding exponentially, with a lot of controversy, money to be made and ways to help people battling serious medical issues. Whether you are for or against the legalization of cannabis, it is a groundswell that is not going away anytime soon.
I got called out naming my show “The Talk Around Pot” on Facebook (you know, one of THOSE comments) because “the word pot was made up by the government” to belittle its benefits. In doing a little research, I found this reason made more sense then a government conspiracy: Potiguaya, which means Marijuana Leaves, is where the term “pot” came from.
See? You already learned something.
Whatever you call it, keeping up with the latest will help you make a decision on which side you stand (we wont judge, either side is what is best for you) – this show is…
This past year I have really gotten in touch with how much I have to be grateful for. Even tonight, even when things weren’t going so well over my Christmas dinner out, I found touch points of gratitude and that was the gift of my 2017. I could always find something to be genuinely grateful for.
For 2018, I think we all need a little more PEACE. We ask, and sing and talk about “peace on earth” year after year that I think that it becomes tinny with the repetition. However, I think we need to find a deep and profound peace more than ever. Even if we disagree with something or someone politically, we need to find peace. Even if that someone or something, manages to irk us every single time, we need to find peace.
This Christmas Eve, I am committing my 2018 to creating, fostering and maintaining peace. It was St. Francis of Assisi who popularized what we now call a creche or a manager scene. And it was also St. Francis who prayed, “make me an instrument of Your peace.”
I love this painting above by Robert McCall. It points to how small we are, how small many of our problems are, compared to the vastness of the cosmos. However, I think if we all do our small part to be the peace we are seeking, that can also do so much good.
My Christmas wish for you is to find the peace you are seeking. If you are seeking peace of mind, I hope you find it. I hope you create it. If your heart is at unrest, I hope for you to have a peaceful heart in 2018. Seekers are finders and I hope you seek peace and find it.
So honored to be featured on Judy Goss’ What Women Want Radio Blog.

Love this show and how it is such a mystical dichotomy of failure leading to success, and how to handle it afterwards. A lot of times we view failure as just that – falling down, but Amy Lyle, bestselling author of “The Book of Failures” tells us differently, how she used “failure” as her success tool. And finance expert Meredith Jones also joins us with her story of ups and downs leading to finally becoming a leading expert in the one industry people tend to cringe at – FINANCE, and she gently shows us how to manage your dollars to lock in your success.
