She also shares inspirational lessons that she learned as she fought for her own son’s life.

Listen to the podcast HERE

During JJ’s first book launch her 16 year-old son was hit by a car and left for dead. She shares how she used the “Miracle Mindset” to fight for her son’s life and “overrule” what doctors were telling her. She believes that our best time of growth is during challenges and that her family is now “better for what happened.”

We also walk through her famous Virgin diet and she explains why “eating less and exercising more” does not always work.  We also talk about weight loss resistance, the link between self worth and health, and why you should always put your health first.

Her story is incredibly inspiring and will empower you to “go for the impossible”.

Tara shares her personal story about when she was at the top of her career and yet felt incomplete. As a lead nurse in a critical care unit, she heard countless people share their regret for not spending more time with the people that they loved and living a more fulfilled life. Within a few short years, she left that career and pursued her dream of helping others thrive and live to their fullest potential.

Ep 66 Justin Krane - Money Mindset for Prosperity

Justin Krane Quotes (4).jpg

This week I sat down with Justin Krane, author, money strategist, and frequent guest on MSNBC to discuss how we empower ourselves financially.

Check out the podcast HERE

I love Justin’s message because he encourages his clients to ENJOY life. Instead of feeling guilty about buying a five dollar coffee drink, he says that we should at times indulge in small pleasures. Although he agrees that we need to live and spend responsibility,  he has a refreshing way of teaching how to go about that.

We discussed many things in this episode including the power of delegating and creating a solid team around you, the importance of human capital, and how to develop a prosperity mindset.

This is an incredible episode for those who may feel at a loss with their finances or struggle with knowing how to balance a budget and still enjoy life.

Questions I Asked Justin:

  • How can we create better systems in our business?
  • Should we save for retirement?
  • How do we clear our mental blocks about money?

Topics Discussed:

  • Why men should not dye their own hair
  • The importance of getting on the “money scale”.
  • The importance of delegating.

Quotes from the show

  • “Systems are sexy.” @LindaMitchell
  • “Be a prosperity thinker. Believe that you can create the life that you want by taking action.” @JustinKrane
  • “I believe you have to fail all the time” @JustinKrane
  • “You have to invest in things that will make your strengths better”. @JustinKrane
  • “There is nothing wrong with working on yourself” @JustinKrane
