Confidence: How to Get It and How to Keep It
Confidence is NOT tied to your circumstances. Confidence is a choice you make in the face of your circumstances. This is not about fake or toxic positivity. To the contrary, choosing confidence, being curious about your failures and mistakes, and celebrating your wins will bring you clarity on the intentional results you want in your life. Today, Hellcat walks us through the Model she uses to coach her clients, explaining the process of how, no matter our circumstances, we can choose our thoughts that create our feelings which in turn drive our actions (or inaction) and get us our results. This method is all too clear when we talk about confidence. Hellcat wasn't always a Hellcat. She wasn't born that way. She wasn't born a renegade. She has felt alone, still feels afraid - she stumbles through it anyway (lyrics credit to P!nk's new song, All I Know So Far). She has many, many reasons NOT to be confident and to feel less than confident about being a parent, a wife, a business woman... but she learned how to manage those thoughts to serve her present and future, and she wants to teach you that today. Come listen and learn how you can, too, and learn to NEVER say "fake it 'til you make it" ever, ever again. That phrase is the biggest killer to confidence.

Advocacy and Youth Empowerment: The Oklahoma City Police Department's Youth Leadership Academy
Take a listen as I chat with Derrick Sier: a teacher, mentor, philanthropist, and advocate; basically, an all-around superstar. He’s not a teacher within the typical schoolhouse walls, but he does work with youth in our City and with the Oklahoma City Police Department in its meaningful and transformative Youth Leadership Academy by empowering our youth through mentorship, communication, and advocacy skills. Come along and learn about the Bridge Youth Impact Center and the work this amazing non-profit is doing for youth in terms of impacting drug addiction, domestic violence, and mental health among our youth population. Derrick and I chat about the importance of connection and building bridges with people, the importance of mission statements, and his work with FACT (Family Awareness Community Teamwork). Derrick shares his personal story of his first interaction with law enforcement and how his work today is to break down barriers between our youth and the police department and show that our men and women in blue will advocate and show our kids that they are there to help them take another shot. There is power in sharing our stories and we talk about what to do when you hit those obstacles and people that are not on board. My hope is that you will walk away today truly inspired about our youth and the community work you can do to be a connector, bridge-builder, and provide confidence and hope in yourself and others, one thought at a time. Learn from Derrick what it means to JUMP into the opportunities and mission to make this world better.

Suicide: End The Stigma
TRIGGER WARNING: Suicide, Depression This is a heavy one: Suicide. But it's important to talk about, especially during the Holidays and especially during the Holidays during a Pandemic. Hellcat interviews Heather Loab, founder, creator, and author of UnrulyNeurons.com. Hellcat first interviewed Heather in Episode 14: Finding Hope and Healing in Living with Depression and Mental Illness. They talked about the importance of talking about and ending the stigma of mental illness and depression. Today is more specific: How can we destigmatize the conversation around suicide? We dive into some data and facts surrounding suicide, risk factors and warning signs for teen and youth, and Heather shares her powerful story of her life with suicide. The CDC reported an increase of 57% in suicides among 10-24 year olds and that’s only from 2007-2018. That doesn’t even consider data from during the Pandemic, where isolation and depression are likely pervasive. Listen in and learn how to have that direct conversation and not tip-toe around it. We will also dispel the myths surrounding suicide: "You shouldn’t bring it up." "Someone who doesn’t have depression won’t commit suicide." WRONG. 54% of those who die from suicide, there is no known cause and the family and close friends had no idea. "It's just selfish." "They're just attention-seeking or being dramatic." We will dispel these myths today. You will hear Heather’s real life story and experiences with suicide and what it looks like. So, get educated and armed with tools to take action today.

Finding Common Ground through Humor, Healing, and Hope: An Interview with Amanda Doolittle Crawford
We find ourselves in a highly politicized climate right now, from the Presidential race to Covid-19, masks, and education. How can we maintain our friendships when we find ourselves on the opposing side of these issues? How can find common ground from a place of respect, insight, and understanding? Tune in today as Hellcat interviews one of her closest friends, Amanda Doolittle Crawford. Amanda and Hellcat are polar opposites in terms of political affiliations, pandemic protocols, and yes, even football. But they've managed to do so without sacrificing the true tenets of their relationship: love and respect. They've managed to have discussions and discourse without divorce. Their hope is that you can walk away today with a little bit of humor and maybe find a place of healing, hope, and a way to get through this season with your true self and your true relationships intact once we reach the other side. And we will reach the other side, together. Amanda and Hellcat share recent experiences with social media keyboard warriors and how they have been able to move past it and work together for the common good by finding common ground.

BONUS: In Memory of Tanya Dodd-Hise - Happy 50th Birthday
Today, August 6, 2020, Tanya Dodd-Hise would have been 50 years old. As a friend, sometimes we are called to do the hard things and for Hellcat, that was delivering the Eulogy at her dear friend's memorial service. Tanya fought like hell for years in her battle against breast cancer, with many wins and many disappointments, when eventually it just spread too far. Tanya died November 10, 2017. Hellcat wants to remind everyone who knew Tanya, and even those of you who didn't, of the lessons Tanya brought to our lives and how we can keep her spirit alive through our loving acts for others. Use your voice to stand up for what's right. Don't be afraid to voice your raw unapologetic truth. Do for others even when you think you don't have time. Make that sacrifice because you never know whose life you are enriching. Even invite a complete stranger to your house for the weekend... it should be fine, right?? Love those around you like Tanya loved - with open acceptance and fierce loyalty. Finally, take the damn picture... No one has ever said, "I wish I wouldn't have taken so many pictures."
