What My Niece's Love for "Chocolate Biscuits" Taught Me
Today’s episode is a short and sweet and a little anecdote about my niece Annabel and the lesson I took away from it. I have shared with you my holiday tradition of making Macaroons for the family and then bringing them to Christmas. This year, because we didn’t go visit our family in person, I made macaroons for everyone and shipped them with their presents. A couple of weeks ago, my niece, Annabel, told her mom she wanted to FaceTime with me and when she got me on the phone she said, “Auntie Emily, I really liked those chocolate biscuits. Can we have some more?” What did this simple request teach me? What can it teach YOU about sharing your voice and stepping up to ask for what you want and need? Find out in today's podcast!

"Be Thankful" with NaughtyGood Woman of the Month: Sheila Holmes
Join your host, Emily Aborn, in a collaboration with Lindsay Taylor of NaughtyGood Bites as we bring you the NaughtyGood face of November, Sheila Holmes. Sheila was chosen as the nominee for showing up and being her thankful, grateful, joyful self for the theme "Be Thankful". Sheila was nominated by Heather Heigis. Each month, NaughtyGood Bites chooses a woman that was nominated by another in conjunction with a monthly theme. To nominate the NaughtyGood woman in your life, visit their website here. Today we introduce you to Sheila, owner of Halos Hair Salon and Meraki Therapeutic Massage. Sheila has been the successful owner of Halos since 1995, cutting and styling hair—making her clients feel confident and beautiful when they walk out her door. Sheila’s experience as a stylist and her genuine and giving spirit, continually turned first-time clients into long-time and loyal patrons. In 2001, Shelia began exhibiting symptoms of Lyme disease, which went undiagnosed for quite some time before finally landing on a viable treatment. In 2018, Sheila began having problems with her vision, ultimately being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that impaired her vision enough she could no longer drive and made daily tasks that much more difficult... including cutting hair. This did not stop Sheila. Due to her impaired vision, she was forced to give up her love of cutting hair, but not her love of helping people feel their best. Sheila went back to school and brought massage therapy to her salon—where she can now rely on touch, and not sight—to bring beauty to her clients. When asked what “be thankful” means to her, Sheila responded: “I am thankful for what I have learned about the human spirit and the strength, weakness and survival of my own. I am thankful for the ability to now FEEL a person's intentions—their compassion, understanding and judgments in any given situation. This is a gift. I am visually unable to see a smile, but I can sense it. I am literally forced to trust my instincts and feelings. I am now able to FEEL the kind-hearted humans that I am so blessed to have all around me.” Sheila has made a career and life out of making people feel confident and beautiful. Her challenges have not defined her... they have inspired her and made her an example to us all—wake up every day and be thankful for what you do have... life is plentiful!

The Four Agreements: In Life and Business!
Have you read Don Miguel Ruiz' book The Four Agreements? It is a short read that talks about four important principles or "agreements" if you will about how to make our lives better by reducing self-limiting beliefs and thought patterns. The Four Agreements Are: 1. Be Impeccable With Your Word 2. Don't Take Anything Personally 3. Don't Make Assumptions 4. Always Do Your Best Here is my spin on how to apply them to your business, as well as how to ask yourself some of the deeper questions to improve your words and actions for a better life! Here are the follow-up questions for you to journal on/work on after listening to the episode: Be Impeccable With Your Word Are you aware of the power of your word? What are some of the ways you’ve experienced the power of the word in your life? Don’t Take Anything Personally What are some of the ways you have taken things personally? Do you believe the opinions of others are more important than your own? Do you take it personally if someone disagrees with you? Don’t Make Assumptions Provide some examples of why making assumptions can cause so much suffering. Do you assume worst-case scenarios? Always Do Your Best What are some examples of how practicing this agreement would transform your life? Do you tend to push yourself too hard? Do you know when you’ve done your best? Do you find it easy or difficult to practice these agreements? Has practicing one or more of the Four Agreements changed your life?
