Practices for Aging GreatFULLy

...So you can live your best life NOW!

Holley have always been connected with older individuals, even as a child. Becoming a gerontologist was a natural path for her. She is also a Fellow in Thanatology (expert in death, dying and bereavement). Her work focuses on positive aging and end-of-life preparedness.

During my gerontological research, she came across a staggering statistic; less than 30% of people complete an advance directive. This led her on a path to uncover the reasons for this surprisingly low statistic of people who fail to plan for end-of-life. Her research uncovered many reasons and after identifying each one, she decided to do what she could to help close the gap and raise the statistic. So she wrote a book, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality, aimed at overcoming the challenges of end-of-life planning, while providing readers with fun and simple tools for advance care planning, using  her comprehensive, novel approach called CREATED PEACE.

Holley Kelley is a Gerontologist and a fellow in Thanatology, and an international and national multi-award-winning author of the Amazon #1 Best-Seller and #1New Release, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality.

Holley is also host of the popular, globally syndicated Aging GreatFULLy radio show, awarded as top 15 shows on aging on the planet, coming in at #6 worldwide for 2020!

She is a cultural influencer and recognized positive aging practitioner and expert on aging, end-of-life and final affairs preparedness. She is also a transformational and charismatic keynote speaker, bringing enthusiastic perspectives to audiences, all the while encouraging everyone to “Love the St‘AGE’ they’re in!”

As founder of the Latter-Life Planning institute, Holley believes that everyone should embrace her company motto -- to Live Vibrantly, Plan Thoughtfully and Age Dynamically!

What You’ll Learn from This Episode:

  • The art of Aging GreatFULLy!

  • The top 5 common challenges people face while growing older

  • Why "Aging is our Fortune"

Women and health in the age of COVID19

Living through the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has required many of us to put our lives on “hold,” but that does not mean that our lives have been “still.”

These are not ordinary days. Living through the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has required many of us but especially women – to rethink daily life at every level and at every age. And not just for ourselves as women but for our young children, our teenage and college age children as well as our aging parents. 

To help women navigate this unchartered territory, listen in to this episode as Beth Battaglino, RN, Chief Executive Officer of HealthyWomen.org share a range of online content and resources that HealthyWomen has developed to answer questions and provide insight into what women are struggling and dealing with right now. 

Beth Battaglino, RN, Chief Executive Officer, HealthyWomen, brings a unique combination of sharp business expertise and women’s health insight to her leadership of the organization. Beth has worked in the health care industry for more than 25 years helping to define and drive public education programs on a broad range of women’s health issues. She launched and has expanded the HealthyWomen.org brand and is responsible for the business development and strategic positioning of the organization. HealthyWomen now connects to millions of women across the country through its wide program distribution and innovative use of technology. Beth serves as the organization’s chief spokesperson, regularly participating in corporate, non-profit, community and media events. She also is a practicing nurse in maternal child health at Riverview Medical Center- Hackensack Meridian Health, in Red Bank, NJ. In addition to her nursing degree, Beth holds degrees in political science, business and public administration from Marymount University.

What you will learn from this episode:  

  • How new family and professional demands are requiring an increase in both physical and emotional labor for women. 
  • How working from home and home schooling are impacting the family
  • Parenting: It isn’t just the adults who are stressed out. Learn how to minimize the impact loss of friends, activities and social experiences (especially high school seniors missing friends and once-in-a-lifetime activities) are taking an emotional toll on kids so parents will need to be a little flexible in their standards.
  • New relationship dynamics with your spouse or partner – Why confinement is “the ultimate team building exercise.” We have to be accepting and understanding, communicate and compromise, practice self-care so we can manage stress and most importantly, stay safe.
  • Gender Differences: despite the fact that women seem to be bearing more than anyone throughout the crisis, they have a better immune system and may be managing the infection better because they have the innate ability to do so. HealthyWomen’s team examined how Coronavirus is Killing More Men Than Women.
  • Impact of the virus on parents

You Can Create Anything When You Trust Yourself

My guest Angella Johnson has experienced many key transitions in life including job loss, infertility, business failures, and successes. In this episode she shares tips to getting through hardships when the feeling of despair feels like it may last forever. 

“The thing that matters most during difficult times is trusting yourself.” 

After investing a quarter of a million dollars on coaches and courses, Angella Johnson found some cold-hard-TRUTH: Her soulful business could NOT fit into someone else's paint-by-numbers formulas no matter how hard she worked.

(And neither can yours.)

When the promise of "work harder and push harder" led to burnout and breakdown, Angella burned her business down in 2012 to rebuild with her intuition and spiritual connection in the forefront.

That's when she discovered that she wasn't the only one who was craving soul with strategy. This ignited her mission to bring magic, joy, ease, and intuition along with messaging and marketing strategy that created real results for her clients.

As the founder of The Collective for Creators and the creator of the Intuitive Marketing Matrix™ and the Soul Message Archetypes™, she blazes the path for entrepreneurs to trust themselves, break the rules, and radically change what they think is possible and make more money without the hustle or hype.

She has shared stages with visionary leaders including Lisa Nichols, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Lynn Twist, and works with global clients in her classes, courses, events, and as private clients.

 

What you will learn from this episode:  

  • Why trusting yourself matters more than anything and the way to trust yourself is to ask expansive questions

  • How she started her business in 2008 after getting laid off just as the economy was crashing, then going on to build a 6-figure business within a year

  • Making peace with infertility, experiencing miscarriage and how it led her on a path to health

  • How she lost $40k on my first women's conference and how it led her to creating community AND making a profit

  • What are “expansive questions” and how asking these kinds of questions help to dissolve barriers and blocks, expands possibilities and builds a co-creation with the energy around you
