Episode Description

What does it take to be resilient when we sometimes get knocked down in life? Resiliency, the ability to become strong and grow after being pulled, stretched and bent in ways we never imagined. Upon reflection, we all can share a story of our Hero's Journey. A time when we have overcome some obstacle, trial or limiting belief to learn a deeper lesson about who we are as we climb up to a new way of being and find our footing as victors on our path. This week we welcome Patrina Wisdom, known as The Fresh Start Specialist, who dynamically shares her story of moving from Victim To Victor overcoming obstacles and trials with persistence and laughter to live a bodacious life! The Hero's Journey calls us to rise above our circumstances to boldly step into a grander expression of our lives.

MindSet ReSetTM: A Passage To Choice


Reviews of MindSet ReSetTM: A Passage To Choice “For those who want a systematic approach to changing one’s thinking and changing one’s life, this is a definitive vehicle to accomplish just that. It can be used over and over again to ‘reset’ one’s thinking in every area of their life...It is a stellar piece!” Rev. Dr. Maureen Hoyt, Center for Spiritual Living, Westlake Village, California “The author brilliantly assists the readers to discover the wisdom residing within one’s own core. Through MINDSET RESET, Prudence guides you with encouragement, keys to self-empowerment, and sustainable practices in service to changing beliefs. MINDSET RESET is a fun book. It gently takes the potential sting out of identifying and clarifying what may not be working – or satisfying – in one’s life. It provides a map of a journey of discovery, ultimately broadening the landscape of available choices which one may not have otherwise considered or uncovered.” Michael Brocato, via Amazon.com View Guest page

Curtis Speer

I was born and raised in Lawton, Oklahoma. With a military base close by and a transient population, things never really seemed to happen in this seemingly small hometown. I began to pay closer attention to my surroundings at and early age. With a copious amount of self prescribed solitude, I would spend time outside, far away from anyone. I tuned into the trees, the colors, the sounds and most importantly, the light. Seeing things from at least two perspectives would lead me to continue to create magnificent bodies of work that play with the mind and the eyes. Using Light as my main subject, I am able to illuminate the subtleties of life, death, color, contrast, texture and emotion. As I continue on my journey, I can only hope my work resonates with the viewer and compels he or she to slow down a little and turn inward.
