Superhero of Love Podcast

You have a Superhero of Love inside you! Come learn to love and be loved more than ever before + fly high with that Mighty Heart of yours!

Two previous guests (See Episodes 100 and 107) share ways that the pandemic has helped open, strengthen and inspire their hearts, sparking some forever changes for the mighty hearts. Both of these Supeheroes of Love are out in the world doing what they can to help us all heal our hearts.

 

First we hear from Alicia Crysta Easter of ACE Yoga LA who is a yoga and meditation instructor, a ray of light shining leading us through Black Lives Matter and guiding us toward better allyship.  ACE is the creator of a new line of inspiring candles like this Superhero of Love beauty which says it all:  I AM LOVE!

Next we hear from Bestselling Author, Rebecca Winn whose extraordinary book One Hundred Daffodils: Finding Beauty, Grace & Meaning When Things Fall Apart came out on Day #1 of the pandemic in her home town of Dallas, TX.  Sometimes a change is sparked by a fairy godmother swooping in....Rebecca tells us one such real-life fairy tale lesson she received.

His company’s name is Extreme Leadership Institute, and bestselling author Steve Farber is as powerful as his company’s name implies.

He also has the giant heart and magical powers of Tinkerbell, and he's not afraid to admit that he shares her core value: Love.

In this episode, Steve talks about the magic he has created or observed in extremely successful businesses who lead with love, infuse love into their businesses and invest in what makes their customers feel loved because, as he says,  “Love is just damn good business.”

It’s the name of his most recent book (Love is Just Damn Good Business: Do What You Love in the Service of the People Who Love What You Do), and the name of his podcast.

We invite you to leap into this inspiring conversation with Steve.  LEAP, you ask?  Yes, LEAP like his previous bestselling book's title portends:  The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership.  Steve brings our attention to this love-based inspiring acronym wherever he goes -- including in this episode:

 Cultivate Love

Generate Energy

Inspire Audacity

Provide Proof

You don't have to own or run a business to get value from Steve's love lessons.  His advice is for all Superheroes of Love who want to make a difference in the world. The love we bring into our work lives spills into our personal lives, affects friends, family and beyond. 

So tune in for a love tune-up!

Lian Dolan knows about sister love.  She and her four sisters have been bringing their behind the scenes chats up front and center first in a radio show, first for WNYC public radio and then ABC radio, and then finally where they are now with their Satellite Sisters podcast.  They talk about life and love and create a beautiful community encouraging people to do as they do: take care of their hearts with the support of family, friends and sometimes even strangers.  

Lian shares how she sought support coming through a personal challenge that hit her life like a meteor sychronistically on the day she delivered the final manuscript of her new book.

She has two LA Times Bestsellers Elizabeth the First Wife, Helen of Pasadena. Her new novel The Sweeney Sisters just came out!  It's about The four daughters of Bill Sweeney who find out at their father's funeral that they have another sibling.  The adventure unfolds from there!

This woman is literally waving her own special brand of magic wand to touch hundreds of hearts each week.  Someone once waved a wand that magically lifted up Simone Gordon when she didn't have the money she needed to feed her special needs son. And, now she pays that blessing forward on a daily basis.  

The pandemic has gravely affected many. Domestic abuse and mental health issues are on the rise.  Unemployment, homelessness and hunger are an every day occurrence, but Simone is doing all she can to end people's suffering and move them one step closer to making their dreams come true. She isn't satisfied with helping people survive today.  She works on moving them toward sustaining themselves for the long term as they move toward creating the lives they truly want.

Simone has been featured in People Magazine and she even won a Webby Award, but her dream has nothing to do with fame, she is on a mission to help as many women as she can as The Black Fairy Godmother, and to start a transition house for victims of domestic abuse.

If you need a respite from the tough news, I invite you to turn your attention to this bright and shining light on our planet, The Black Fairy Godmother. Simone is a true Superhero of Love, helping people lift their hearts out of the darkness and fill with the light and hope that she, her volunteers and donors have to spare for those temporarily less fortunate.

Find her on Instagram at "The Black Fairy Godmother Official" and jump into her magical world with both feet. 

When Hope Hendricks met Ed Bacon met she was on her way to a career as a speech pathologist and he to a career as an attorney. All that changed when God came knocking, and we are so lucky it did because she opened her heart and her mind and they started a beautiful journey that allowed them to both change thousands of lives for the better with love.

Originally from the south, in 2016, they left All Saints Church in Pasadena where he was rector for over 20 years to return to the area.  With a home in Birmingham, AL but a full time gig in Atlanta, they straddle both cities, and are doing their best to "evolve forward" as Ed calls it, through the classism, racism, through this pandemic, through the political dissension.

We are all in what Rev. Ed calls Pandemic University, and now amidst the George Floyd murder and protests, we are all being handed some very trying classes which he and Hope both help guide us through with a heavy dose of love and laughter.  

You will hear about their relationship, how they navigate with love through even the difficult times weathering internal and external storms with a lot of grace...and laughter.

This interview dives deep but it also grabs your heart and promises to lift you up, up, up during these very trying times.

Rev. Ed's book (which Oprah Winfrey loved and celebrated) also couldn't be a more timely and helpful read.  Get it now wherever you buy your books for a major uplift for your heart and soul:
