Where are my creative program designers? On today I share some truth bombs about designing and implementing effective programs. I have been facilitating groups since I was 11 years old (teaching jewelry making). I got my BA in K-12 Health and Fitness Teaching Certification and spent 1.5 years teaching middle school math (without proper training) and middle school PE, followed by elementary PE with only 1 year of PE experience from high school. I studied my tail off in college but had a lot of substitute professors that didn't know what they were doing and not a lot of cohesion within the leadership. I didn't let that stop me from being my personal best. I went back to get my MS and had $60,000 tuition paid for by Oregon State University in exchange for teaching college level fitness classes (without any prior experience). I taught myself because I was NOT TAKING ANY MORE STUDENT LOANS #RealTalk. By my 2nd year in grad school I impressed the head of the cardio department so much so she asked me to co-facilitate her faculty/staff fitness class (which they paid memberships to be a part of). I also was substitute teaching and was offered a job as a music teacher through my Masters "Project Asthma" (songs/dances I created to educate about asthma and actually taught 2 principals and 2 music teachers during my interview process). After graduate school I was supposed to go back to teaching but was laid off the same week I did my final MS Presentation #SuckySeason. I didn't give up though! That was in 2012. By December of 2012, I had 5 part-time jobs teaching all around WA state creating my own curriculum and helping change lives everywhere I worked. The following January I was invited to interview for an opportunity to be a part of a Pilot Program for the US Army and US Air Force through the Armed Forces Wellness Center. Over 1000 people applied, over 100s were interviewed and I was selected along with 8 other women. We helped measure baseline Cardio respiratory Submax Vo2 testing, Plysmography (body fat testing) using Bod Pods that the NLF uses, Basal Metabolic Testing, Biofeedback Resilience based training using HeartMath Technologies, and group Nutrition education classes. From their results we also provided 1:1 health coaching to Active Duty Soldiers, Spouses, and Retired Veterans. My standards of excellence when it comes to anything I choose to do in life is Platinum Standard. I used the same methods of empirical research before designing the Move Happy Facilitator Program©️for my patients in a locked psychiatric hospital.

Who's struggling financially and needs some encouragement from financial experts? On today's episode I interview Mina and Chelsea. They are Co-CEOs of Money Mindset Club. I met them on TikTok from their fun educational videos I saw on my feed. They added valuable information to me and I thought during this time in the world with a lot of people losing their jobs and/or having to pull from retirement early to cover essentials, that their insights and wisdom would be perfectly timed. They're super fun too so that always helps. Make sure to give them a thank you review and write something specific that stood out to you if you want them back for a 2.0 version. This will help qualify you for our fun contest you'll hear about at the end. PPS: 1705 downloads as it stands between the last time I checked and recording the episode yay 😁. We're getting close to the 10,000 download cutoff before the fun surprise you'll hear more about at the end of the episode. PPSS: Don't forget to tell someone you love them today
