093: Giving Back Insights #10 — Energy, from us and those we choose to surround ourselves with Rob Lowe

I struggle sometimes to keep my energy up

Welcome to the tenth episode of Giving Back Insights! This is my Thursday solo show where I talk about how our guests and their charities serve others, to explore actions each of can take to make a difference in people’s lives and to share. Today I’m talking about Energy, the energy that we create and direct. Listen to today’s episode and don’t forget to give your feedback and valuable comments. Enjoy!

Key Takeaways:

Energy Bus by Jon Gordon
Great story about ownership for how you direct your life’s energy
It is as simple as the story, it’s not always easy.  
I struggle sometimes to keep my energy up, how we turn it around is key.  
Tough conversation with someone ready to hang up the towel, low energy.  After the call, I made the choice to separate myself from that energy and left the door open for her to reflect and come back when she is ready to move forward with her program that has an incredible impact on teachers and students.

Then an amazing interview with Annie Blumenfeld
Incredible young lady who started Wags 4 Hope as a young teenager after learning about prevalence of heartworm, which her newly adopted dog had
She decided to do something, and her picture of her last dog caught the attention of women who asked her to do portraits of their dogs
Worked with government officials to bring awareness of heartworm disease in Connecticut
Now teaches classes, puts Responsible Pet Owner kits together, is a pet food ambassador for Connecticut Food Pantry

Next conversation with a naturopath moving towards a midlife awakening
He’s in a spot of abundance, ready to share his knowledge in new and exciting directions
He’s in a spot where Opportunity and Attitude overlap

A younger man, also from EOFire, dynamic chef, manager, restaurateur.  
He shared his story about the loss of his dog and how it fuels his donations for animal welfare
It’s his time to share his story with others, and create connections towards that end.  It’s going to be hard for him, and it’s going to be GREAT!

Alisa Daire Nelson, Daire 2 Succeed great practice as a certified strengths life coach
She’s got a huge vision, the heart is in the right place.  She’ll be an incredible mentor when she starts small, starts with one person
That’s where Gerald Chertavian and David Heredia started as Big Brother and Little Brother, and it leads to Year Up.

Surround yourself with people who have energy and passion and support you.  For those who don’t want to get on your bus, it’s okay, they don’t have to be there.
