Hello, #ThriveGlobal Friends and Community Members!
Trusting this finds you safe, healthy and uplifted!
My recent radio/podcast conversation with the bedazzling – ANDREA OWEN – on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald – was beyond inspiring and uplifting for not only myself, but as well for the global radio listeners and additionally, for the international podcast subscribers!
I absolutely love and certainly do welcome any opportunity in which to interact with fellow podcasters! It’s a different kind of conversation – – a different kind of cadence – – a different kind of magic! Andrea left nothing off the table in our fast-paced, high-vibing, deeply introspective, synchronistically sequenced, ping pong dialogue. Guests who show up, right out of the gate on the airwaves with me as immediately raw, vulnerable, forthcoming, revealing, and in all the ways that substantively matter for constructing a genuinely thought-provoking interview…are hands down, my all-time favourite type of radio/podcast guest. Thank you, Andrea, for showing up as your best version of self on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald! Much appreciated! Your energies are highly infectious and yummly contagious!
There is no arguing or disputing to what degree Andrea is a highly accomplished woman. She is beyond savvy and charismatic, a dynamo in the leadership space of personal growth and personal development. Literally, millions of those whom she resonates with at the core level of heart, spirit and soul cannot get enough of her. Her fans and supporters eagerly anticipate her next body of work whether it be via her podcast, or yet another publication of hers. She is a woman who lives her life consciously, purposefully, deliberately and intentionally. She is an epic role model to all women and girls worldwide.
Andrea does not merely profess or spew how one should live their fullest or best lives…no…Andrea would rather execute from the realm of organic example setting; genuinely depicting and authentically demonstrating how it is not only possible for anyone else to equally follow suit in the pursuit of whatever it is that individually lights others up…but also highlighting, that by choosing to do so, is truly the most instrumental gift one could ultimately bestow upon themselves.
The more aligned we each are in the honouring of our own truths, our own wants, our own needs, our own healing practices…the more self-empowered we become so as to generously share and to profoundly impact the overall collective. Once we have achieved and accomplished our own inner greatness…inner mastery then follows, thus manifesting the talents, the skills, the gifts, the vision, the wisdom, the messaging for what is uniquely signature to each of us that the rest of the world can also equally stand to benefit from. It is the gift that keeps on giving! Andrea’s gifts are readily accepted and are humbly embraced by innumerable and immeasurable individuals from all walks of life from around the globe! Such a trailblazer you are, Andrea! Thank you!
I celebrate Andrea’s quickly approaching anniversary; commemorating a full decade of total sobriety! This woman is seriously committed to the journey of doing the inner work. Andrea digs deep every single day in which to honour, nurture, heal, and cultivate her healthiest and truest relationship with self – – first and foremost. She is transparent about it all – – the ups…the downs…the ebbs…the flows…the hardships…the victories – – knowing that by choosing to be an open and honest book about it all with the overall collective, can inspire bravery, courage, inspiration and new beginnings for others. The face Andrea puts to it all is real. Andrea is the real deal! Thank you for being exactly who you are in all the facets of your being, Andrea! Thank you for upholding the integrity of your own humanness within your own humanity. So beautiful and so greatly respected!
On behalf of Andrea and myself, we wish to express our wholehearted gratitude to each of you, for kindly taking the time to read this Feature Article! We also wish to mutually extend our appreciation to each of you for additionally tuning in to our riveting conversation with one another via the enclosed podcast link!
