Now that my girls are an integral part of my business, I'm often asked how I keep my kids "safe" online. That is a HUGE topic, my friends, and not one that I dive into in this live, however, it is something I consider every time I post a pic or video or my kiddos and I working together. 


I'd love to continue the conversation as this topic is one I am peeling back the layers of every single day. 


Tell me, how do you decide how much to share online or how much you might compartmentalize part of your life.

Many people, most outside this world of entrepreneurship, balk at the massive amounts of money they see me spend on something they don't see the value in... 


I am the first to admit that I'm a self-improvement junkie and seeker of knowledge. I purchase lots of programs to learn specific skills or get better at them because I know they will help me become a better teacher and mentor for our current and future clients. 


I am also investing in coaches and mentors to take my hand and walk me through something I know will help move the needle in my business. 


Eight weeks ago, I said yes to a coaching program led by Coach Glitter. I didn't know much about her, however, I knew she'd be speaking at a live event hosted by my long-time friend and mentor, Stacy Tuschl, and she was teaching business owners how to create a brand using video. I jumped in with both feet and I am so glad I did.


These past eight weeks have been nothing short of transformational and not just for my business. The biggest transformations have been internal:


---> The confidence to share my message boldly (something I've been avoiding for so many years)


---> Instilling the belief in me that what I want to create IS possible, especially when surrounded by an amazing and supportive high-vibe tribe.


---> Permission to be me, completely, and no holds barred. I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly awesome it is to be in this place of total acceptance of myself!



Your child's future self as a creator, an innovator, and a leader of the next generation rests with YOU!


What will YOU decide to invest in for you, your business, or your child?

We'll also dive into back school nutrition as Melissa is a certified nutritionist + wellness coach who helps busy women ditch diets, stop eating their feelings, take their power back for good.


Since launching The Honest Weigh in 2014, she has helped over 400 women lose well over 13,600 pounds and counting! Even more important than that, they keep it off with the mindset shift and systems learned from the program. Melissa is a lover of all things girl power, she’s a meal prep maven, and hopefully your new best friend!

I honestly thought it was weird because I didn't feel life was passing by quickly. In fact, I often felt it was the opposite - time was dragging and I just couldn't wait to "grow up."


Now that I'm a mom, I often hear my mother's voice coming out of my own mouth, about how quickly my own kids are growing and how fast time is passing.


When you're living life in the fast lane, there are a few things that when you remember to do them, can make all the difference. Will you accept today's challenge?

Linda has been featured by Inc. Magazine as the leading expert on corporate sponsorships. She is the author of book, Corporate Sponsorship in 3 Easy Steps: Get Funding from Sponsors, Even if You’re Just Starting Out. She is also the CEO of Sponsor Concierge and the Sponsor Secrets Seminar.


Her sponsors include Microsoft, Wells Fargo, Dun & Bradstreet, Epson, Citibank, Fed Ex, American Airlines, Staples, Health Net, Marriott, Southwest Airlines, Los Angeles Business Journal, Wal Mart, Bank of America and IBM. 


She has over 20 years of experience as a small business owner and she is the only person to be featured in both Entrepreneur and Female Entrepreneur magazine in the same month. She has also been on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX Television, Bloomberg Radio and Remarkable Women. 


She started out worse than broke. She was buried in debt and couldn’t find a way out of the poverty trap and abusive relationships. But that’s not what really bothered her. It was that she was short and had frizzy hair to boot. ¬


She and her best friend, Sheryl Felice, used their girl-power to the max. They launched a packaging business which sells custom-printed shopping bags to leading-edge companies. 


Despite her shyness, she devised a sales and marketing plan which made the fledgling business profitable in a very short amount of time. As revenues for the company increased every year, she met entrepreneurs, understood what motivates them and how she could increase their success. By the way, she is still short with frizzy hair. Hey, some things you just can’t change.


Disney, Cisco Systems, Mattel, Universal Studios, Nissan, Yamaha, Sony, Revlon, Dunn Edwards Paints, Sanyo, Avery Dennison, Columbia Tri Star, CBS, City of Hope, Union Bank, ASCAP, Kaiser Permanente, IBM, Variety, Ocean Spray, Sears and Infiniti are some of her sponsors and clients. Her passions are business, sponsorships, marketing, promotion and packaging (she is a “Bag Lady”, after all).

She sees her job as helping impact-driven entrepreneurs get 10-20 more productive hours a week, stop leaking money, and prevent stress-fuel breakdowns.




An engineer by training, Marina came to a realization a couple of years ago: working for a conglomerate is not as inspiring as she wants her life work to be. The quest for inspiration brought her to found Vision Framework, a company that builds small, purpose-driven businesses from the inside, helping entrepreneurs run their companies with ease by putting effective, easy-to-use, and fun (yep!) systems in place.

Hello and welcome back to the raising smart kid 2.0 podcast. I'm so glad you tuned in for today's episode because I feel it's probably one of the most important ones that we've done in our almost one hundred episodes before we get to that if I haven't had the pleasure of meeting you yet. My name is Yaşam Prax and I'm the host of raising smart kids 2.0 podcasts. More importantly, I'm a mom of two daughters a wife and have. Had the privilege working with thousands of students along with their parents. In my 17 years as a performing arts educator, I'm glad you tuned in today because you failed.

Now for some people, those two words can be completely devastating which is really unfortunate because it's through our failures that we learn more. Thomas Edison the inventor of the light bulb is said to have failed 1000 times. However, he didn't see those 1000 failures as failures. He says the fastest way to succeed is to double your failure rate.

So what are you going to fail at today?

What will you allow your kids to fail at today?

In our society failure definitely is seen as a negative quality.

But in my 17 years as a business owner and my 14 years as a mom and 20 years as an educator failure is something that you need to instill in our kids as a positive quality and water. My favorite things to think about when it comes to failure is a little clip in the movie. Meet the Robinsons where the main character is devastated because something he created doesn't work. Louis is distraught. Meanwhile, the family around him start hooting and hollering and they are getting out the confetti cannons and celebrating his failure because of what they know is that the more times you fail the closer you are. At achieving that success. Over on this show notes page 4 of this podcast I'll include that clip from Meet the Robinsons because it really accurately depicts how we need to be able to see failure.

When my oldest was in kindergarten she came home and she was so excited because she had earned an eraser or something so some small trinkets from her classroom teacher. When I inquired about how she had earned this coveted trinket she said, "Mommy I didn't make any mistakes on my schoolwork and there were no eraser marks so I got a prize!"

And I thought oh man if kids are taught to not make mistakes we're not allowed to make mistakes and those mistakes aren't celebrated as part of the learning process. Wow. Our kids are going to have a hard time dealing with things as they get older enough to go into the world on their own. So today I want you to think about this. I have one of my favorite quotes and it's by Walt Disney in this quote he talks about not spending too much time looking back. Or in other words not spending too much mental capacity thinking about what you might construe as a failure because each of those mistakes leads to the success and leads you to where you need to be.

So he says around here, however, we don't look back for very long. We keep moving forward opening new doors and doing new things. It has. We are curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. And for me personally and in my 17-year-old business that couldn't be more true. When I opened our doors 17 years ago I did so with wanting to share my love of dance with my community as I progressed through my business and my kids desired to learn something new.

My oldest wanted to learn the drums and then she wanted to learn karate so it was my responsibility as a mom and really as a creator to make those opportunities available for her. So rather than just teach dance we offered more opportunities for more families to come together and enjoy all of our programs under one roof. Saving them time and money and really the hassle of having to take multiple kids to multiple places around town at the same time. And now as we round out 2017 heading into 2018 we're opening new doors here at the academy and here on the podcast as well. We're going to dive with both feet into the deep end and introduce ways to equip kids to fund their own future.

Now what that looks like is we're going to be offering courses on wine for kids across the U.S. and maybe even the world for them to learn marketable skills such as this putting together a podcast helping somebody else put out a podcast. Creating websites making videos taking photos all things that kids can do right now no matter what their age no matter what anyone else thinks. Kids are so capable and we just need to get out of their way and let them explore those things that light them up let them explore those things where their inner creator comes out and is magnified because they are loving what they are doing. And to end this podcast I want to close with another of my favorite Disney quotes and this has to do with kids and their potential and their ability to create their own Brighter Futures which is what we're helping you do here at the podcast and at the academy in 2013.

And here is the quote,

Hello and welcome back to the raising smart kid 2.0 podcast. I'm so glad you tuned in for today's episode because I feel it's probably one of the most important ones that we've done in our almost one hundred episodes before we get to that if I haven't had the pleasure of meeting you yet. My name is Yaşam Prax and I'm the host of raising smart kids 2.0 podcasts. More importantly, I'm a mom of two daughters a wife and have. Had the privilege working with thousands of students along with their parents. In my 17 years as a performing arts educator, I'm glad you tuned in today because you failed.

Now for some people, those two words can be completely devastating which is really unfortunate because it's through our failures that we learn more. Thomas Edison the inventor of the light bulb is said to have failed 1000 times. However, he didn't see those 1000 failures as failures. He says the fastest way to succeed is to double your failure rate.

So what are you going to fail at today?

What will you allow your kids to fail at today?

In our society failure definitely is seen as a negative quality.

But in my 17 years as a business owner and my 14 years as a mom and 20 years as an educator failure is something that you need to instill in our kids as a positive quality and water. My favorite things to think about when it comes to failure is a little clip in the movie. Meet the Robinsons where the main character is devastated because something he created doesn't work. Louis is distraught. Meanwhile, the family around him start hooting and hollering and they are getting out the confetti cannons and celebrating his failure because of what they know is that the more times you fail the closer you are. At achieving that success. Over on this show notes page 4 of this podcast I'll include that clip from Meet the Robinsons because it really accurately depicts how we need to be able to see failure.

When my oldest was in kindergarten she came home and she was so excited because she had earned an eraser or something so some small trinkets from her classroom teacher. When I inquired about how she had earned this coveted trinket she said, "Mommy I didn't make any mistakes on my schoolwork and there were no eraser marks so I got a prize!"

And I thought oh man if kids are taught to not make mistakes we're not allowed to make mistakes and those mistakes aren't celebrated as part of the learning process. Wow. Our kids are going to have a hard time dealing with things as they get older enough to go into the world on their own. So today I want you to think about this. I have one of my favorite quotes and it's by Walt Disney in this quote he talks about not spending too much time looking back. Or in other words not spending too much mental capacity thinking about what you might construe as a failure because each of those mistakes leads to the success and leads you to where you need to be.

So he says around here, however, we don't look back for very long. We keep moving forward opening new doors and doing new things. It has. We are curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. And for me personally and in my 17-year-old business that couldn't be more true. When I opened our doors 17 years ago I did so with wanting to share my love of dance with my community as I progressed through my business and my kids desired to learn something new.

My oldest wanted to learn the drums and then she wanted to learn karate so it was my responsibility as a mom and really as a creator to make those opportunities available for her. So rather than just teach dance we offered more opportunities for more families to come together and enjoy all of our programs under one roof. Saving them time and money and really the hassle of having to take multiple kids to multiple places around town at the same time. And now as we round out 2017 heading into 2018 we're opening new doors here at the academy and here on the podcast as well. We're going to dive with both feet into the deep end and introduce ways to equip kids to fund their own future.

Now what that looks like is we're going to be offering courses on wine for kids across the U.S. and maybe even the world for them to learn marketable skills such as this putting together a podcast helping somebody else put out a podcast. Creating websites making videos taking photos all things that kids can do right now no matter what their age no matter what anyone else thinks. Kids are so capable and we just need to get out of their way and let them explore those things that light them up let them explore those things where their inner creator comes out and is magnified because they are loving what they are doing. And to end this podcast I want to close with another of my favorite Disney quotes and this has to do with kids and their potential and their ability to create their own Brighter Futures which is what we're helping you do here at the podcast and at the academy in 2013.

And here is the quote,

"To the youngsters of today.The world is getting better there still is plenty of opportunity."

Yes.

And as we head into the future a future where 65 percent of the jobs today won't exist when our kids are adults we need to equip them with skills to create their own opportunities create their own brighter future and create ways for them to fund those dreams are you with me head over to Elco Arts Academy.

OK, my friends, I will catch you very soon. I wish you a very happy rest of your day. And here is to equipping kids to create their own brighter futures.

067 - The Art of Parenting Intentionally with Julie Ford 067 - The Art of Parenting Intentionally with Julie Ford Fri, 12 May 2017 09:01:18 GMT 30:46 ff80e78c0f54f5af092bdc9220c5d7a2 no https://shows.pippa.io/5a67f337fabf6c760df7dfa7/5a67f3ddbdcbe9522d0b5274 067 - Julie Ford - The ART of Parenting Julie Ford of Julz of Life describes herself as a "blender of roles." Her biographical "smoothy" includes: business owner, certified life coach (with a focus on intentional parenting and chaos mitigation), author, mom of two tween/teen daughters, wife to an entrepreneurial hubby, kitchen dancer, shower and car singer, problem solver, flowerbed weeder, and occasional Bobcat/John Deere/Grasshopper operator.

Julie uses song, dance, video, social media, and general shenanigans to connect with her kids. Her secret weapons are habits, routines that serve, and making contribution fun.

Julie Ford of Julz of Life describes herself as a "blender of roles." Her biographical "smoothy" includes: business owner, certified life coach (with a focus on intentional parenting and chaos mitigation), author, mom of two tween/teen daughters, wife to an entrepreneurial hubby, kitchen dancer, shower and car singer, problem solver, flowerbed weeder, and occasional Bobcat/John Deere/Grasshopper operator.

Julie uses song, dance, video, social media, and general shenanigans to connect with her kids. Her secret weapons are habits, routines that serve, and making contribution fun. She loves writing, creating in-the-moment parodies that entertain while getting the point across to her kids, and channeling her inner Latin dancer while in the grocery store.

<![CDATA[011 - Are Schools Killing Your Kid's Creativity]]> Sat, 09 Apr 2016 03:13:22 GMT 9:39 bd61f4cde72a71adc8c1db69961bc8ba no https://shows.pippa.io/5a67f337fabf6c760df7dfa7/5a67f3debdcbe9522d0b52ab In 1983, Harvard Professor, Howard Gardner proposed a revolutionary theory of learning called Multiple Intelligences which he introduced in his book, Frames of Mind. His Theory states that each of us has 7 at the time (and later 8 different intelligences) that manifest differently in us all. While some learn best visually (visual-spatial intelligence), others learn by doing (kinesthetic intelligence), and still others by communicating with others (interpersonal intelligence).

I like to call these intelligences, our Super Powers. And as parents, it's our job to help unleash these super powers in our kids to help them live up to their full potential. And this happens to be the topic of my forthcoming book to be released May 1, 2016.
