This episode is with guest Artisha “Tee” Bolding. She is a minister and certified life coach known as the Mindset Midwife.

Artisha uses her coaching to motivate women and entrepreneurs to birth their business, book or brand. Her programs ensure individuals are no longer stuck in life but thriving in success that’s aligned with their purpose and passion.

Listen to this interview for inspiration. Artisha discovered her purpose while sick in a hospital bed. Since then, she has created her own business and works to help others stand in their own purpose. She shares what she thinks each of us should do every day to clarify our purpose. Although Artisha is a woman of faith, her work and inspiration is for us all.

In Support of Black Lives Matter ep. 35

This is a special episode of Changes BIG and small. I put out this episode in support of justice for George Floyd, who was killed when a police office knelt on his neck for 8 minutes 46 seconds while he cried for his life. I support justice for Breonna Taylor who was killed in her own home. There is a long list of black men and women who have been killed by the police in the United States including Dominique Clayton, Eric Reason, Tamir Rice, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Ahmaud Arbery. I’m not American but I kneel with you and support the fight for justice. Black Lives Matter.

Celebrate Progress to Build A New Habit

When was the last time that you celebrated your progress towards your goals? We get into the habit of always moving on to the next thing, but research shows that stopping and celebrating after completing a new action helps train the brain to repeat that action. We repeat actions and create new habits because of the benefits we perceive from that action. So when you stop and celebrate, you’re making sure your brain recognizes the benefits. You’re using gratitude and savouring to rewire your brain.

This episode of Changes BIG and small is is a CELEBRATION!
