I am such a big believer in goal setting because I truly believe that setting a goal is like taking the dreams that God has given you and writing them down on paper. And I truly believe that God has given you very specific dreams. You, specifically! Specific dreams to achieve, but it's your job to now achieve those things.   Watch the Video on YouTube Here: https://youtu.be/G51AIECbXiA   ©2020 Zimnoch Enterprise, LLC | All Rights Reserved.

Teresa Jackson is the Founder and CEO of Lean On Me Coaching.  Prior to becoming a Nationally Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach, Teresa spent thirty-five years in corporate healthcare, working in various strategic growth positions.  After a Parkinson’s diagnosis in Feb. of 2019, Teresa noticed that many people living with Parkinson’s had a similar experience as she did at the time of diagnosis: there was little to no education and they were left to figure Parkinson’s out on their own. This realization, paired with Teresa’s healthcare background, motivated her to create Parkinson’s Pathway Pals (PPP).     In this episode, she discusses how she continues to thrive, despite chronic disease, and how you can too!   Contact Teresa: Website: https://teresajackson.org Questions/Direct Email: teresajackson@teresajackson.org  Instagram: @lean.on.me.coaching Facebook: Lean on me coaching   Watch the Video on YouTube Here: https://youtu.be/dHrGpJ5xfLs   ©2020 Zimnoch Enterprise, LLC | All Rights Reserved.

My guest today is the beautiful Amanda Price of https://PassionsAcrossAmerica.com who recently completed my Inner Circle coaching program with the Pageant Interview Game Plan In her words, “As Miss Crown of Tennessee, I had it all. I was going to law school, publishing another article, going to events, and traveling across the United States as President of the National Sports and Entertainment Law Society. But something was missing. I wasn’t giving back, and I felt very unfulfilled. I made the decision to start volunteering when I traveled. With my new will to volunteer, the Summer of Service was born. “The Summer of Service was a project that allowed me to serve and volunteer in all 50 states. When I traveled for business, I would also spend time volunteering. Volunteering in this capacity allowed me to work with many different groups, support many different causes, and encourage so many people across the country to get involved in their own communities. “I was inspired by how much of a difference one summer was able to make, but no one really knew what was happening except for the people that I was volunteering with. Something this good just had to be shared, so I started a blog and with it Passions Across America was born. “Through blogging, I’m able to share my experiences with different organizations, raise money for their causes, and recognize the wonderful people that make all of this possible. I’m also able to showcase other people and causes near and dear to their hearts.” – Amanda Price, https://passionsacrossamercia.com To sign up for Amanda’s newsletter and stay in touch with her, go to https://passionsacrossamercia.com If you are ready to schedule a Virtual Pageant Coaching Strategy Session, here’s what to do: 1.

This podcast has been rockin' since 2015, we've had hundreds of thousands of downloads, some truly wonderful guests, epic pageant trainings (if I do say so myself), beautiful reviews, and Awesome success stories! And it's about to get even better! When I started this podcast in 2015, my goal was to train you to win your pageant by improving who YOU are as a person and leaving a legacy that will positively impact the world. That's still my goal - I want to elevate the pageant world by training women how to nail it from the start. I've got success stories up the wazoo of how women around the world have won their pageants because of the training they've received through this podcast -- for FREE! And yet - the medium of podcasting is limited. You can listen to all the wonderful trainings, but you're likely busy driving, putting on your make-up, doing the dishes or going for a job --- that's just some of the stuff I do while listening. It's hard to implement what I'm talking about without the time or space dedicated to your coaching. Plus, as a teacher, I know that the best way to learn engages multiple senses. Listening alone means you won't retain as much of the information. In fact, Watching while listening and simultaneously DOING and Engaging with the content is the BEST way to learn... ....and therefore the best way for me to teach. So - I'm rolling out a new training method: Win A Pageant Master Class series! A Master Class is an in-depth training around a specific topic (just like the podcast trainings, but even more meat on them). It's a series, because I'll be doing a new topic for each Master Class. The Pageant Master Class will be taught over Facebook Video LIVE. Each month, you'll be able to join me live on Facebook for a video training on a new topic. After you've watched the show live, over video, you'll be able to ask me questions you have about your pageant in the comments of the video and I'll answer as many as I can right then and there - LIVE! How's that for immediate feedback?! If for some reason you aren't able to join me for the Master Class live, don't sweat it - you'll be able to go to the Facebook page after the training to watch the recording. I won't be able to answer questions there after the live recording, but you'll be able to Listen, Watch, Do, and Engage with the trainings, which means you'll be able to learn it so much better than the podcast. Now, the podcasts aren't anything to snuff at. Many women have proven that if you are willing to do the work, you can use these episodes on the podcast to Win your pageant! So, the episodes that I've already created for you will remain available here on iTunes. But, the real goodness happens on our Facebook Page! Everyone is going to be heading there now to make sure they are caught up on the Master Class series. Go to WinAPageant.com/MasterClass, which will take you to the most recent or upcoming Master Class in the series. Like the Facebook Page Win A Pageant to stay up with your pageant training. I'm really looking forward to this new format because we'll be able to get to know each other better. I'll love seeing your name pop up on my screen that you're joining live and each video, I'll be answering your pageant questions and celebrating your success stories. It'll be fun!! So, while this may be the last episode I'll be posting on iTunes (who knows I may decide to come back), this isn't goodbye -- we're just moving to Facebook. So, head over to WinAPageant.com/MasterClass now to jump in with me! I'll see you on Facebook :) For details from this episode and more resources visit: http://WinAPageant.com Email the host at Alycia@WinAPageant.com © Alycia Darby Zimnoch 2017 Win A Pageant  All Rights Reserved.
