Let’s Talk Money with Camille Gaines


November 15, 2016 – Camille Gaines, AFC®, bought her first stock at age twenty two and has invested her own money in almost everything since. By her mid-twenties she had made enough from stashing money into stocks to leave dry corporate accounting and become her own boss in commercial real estate. After moving to Bermuda, in her early thirties she began managing family investments based on principles she learned from her father, who significantly changed her parent’s lifestyle in the 1980’s after buying then despised muni bonds at 50 cents on the dollar, paying over 20% interest tax free for the next decade. At midlife, following the scary stock market drops of the early 2000’s, Camille had an epiphany that wealth is not created by long term investments earning 8%, so she began creating income streams from real estate, oil and small business.

Following both her passion and low capital opportunity, in 2007 Camille launched financialwoman.com to inspire and share with women what she has learned about investing and income streams. She writes, invests, consults and oversees a small outsourced team to manage three successful online businesses and real estate rentals in between long walks in the woods in the Texas Hill Country with her white lab.

No matter how much you learn, the very first step to wealth creation is having the right mindset to fuel your knowledge. This discovery led to Camille’s Wealth Creation Launcher, a simple process which unlocks the key to allowance and belief so you can live fulfilled.

REPLAY: Your Own Personal Hypnosis with George John Kappas


November 1, 2016 – 

Okay get this – YOU go under hypnosis every day.

It’s that natural, transitional state between wakefulness and sleep.

And it’s in this state that we’re most susceptible to new ideas.

We got the big picture on hypnosis  (both the powerful and realistic notions of what it can do for us) in our interview with George Kappas (full bio here).

We learned how it works and how to use it as a tool to assuage fears, change habits, manage addictions, and achieve goals.

This is a fascinating topic, one we were more smitten with than expected.

One final teaser: In hypnosis, you target your willingness. “Willingness is a symptom of belief” – once we believe something, emotion and behavior follow.

Sharing Your Message with Debbie Elder



October 4, 2016 – Debbie Elder’s bio reads that she’s a speaker, an educator, and an author, but to put it frankly – she’s a super hero.

She rewires the current education standards by helping her students uncover their learning – not by handing them their learning.

We all have an education story. For some, it’s rosy. For others, it’s hell on earth. And whatever your experience, it probably had a lot to do with the institutions you found yourself walled within.

Thankfully, we get to keep learning. And it’s people like Debbie that inspire us to be better students and better parents as we evolve our education ideology.

Learn how she does it in our interview. And carry the concepts forward in your own life, schools, and pedagogy.


Formal Bio:

Debbie Elder is the nation’s leader in motivating students to be peak performers! In September 2013, Debbie became a best-selling author. She co-authored a book with Brian Tracy titled Against the Grain. In June of 2014 Debbie’s second book Share Your Message with the World achieved international best seller status. Debbie became the owner and Director of Shady Oak Primary School in August 2014; this school serves grades 1 – 5 in Fort Bend County, Texas.

Her varied background has equipped her to deal with any child under any circumstance. While working at the Calgary Young Offender Center, in Alberta Canada, she ran the disciplinary unit that housed males between the ages of 12 – 18 who had committed very serious crimes.

As a therapeutic foster parent she raised teenage girls with severe behavioral issues. Debbie was named the Therapeutic Foster Parent of the year in 1993. After moving to Houston, Texas, Debbie worked as a substitute teacher at the local elementary school and spent two years teaching Pre-K.

In 2003 Debbie joined the Appelbaum Training Institute, ATI and traveled the country training behavior management techniques for the classroom. Debbie enjoyed speaking to audiences each week that welcomed 800 – 1200 teachers. She also ran a very unique after school program for students in grades 3
– 12. This particular after school program empowers kids of all ages to take ownership of their school work, develop success strategies and increase their level of self-awareness.

At the request of her clients Debbie opened a private school that serviced students in grade 6 – 12. This school taught to the ‘whole child’ using accelerated learning methods coupled with success strategies used by the top producers in Corporate America. The concept proved to be so well received that Debbie opened 14 additional schools across the country over the next 6 years.

In a continued effort to meet the needs of her students, Debbie practiced as a college planner. The unique process helped parents afford college and ensured the student was ready to be admitted and had the skills to complete college in a timely fashion.

In 2013, a former parent of one of Debbie’s students requested that she return to her after school program. He went on to explain to her the profound effect the program had on his family. He shared with Debbie that prior to her program he felt like the ‘Homework Police’ and spent way too much of his time badgering his son to finish his daily assignments. But when Alex had the opportunity to attend Set Them Up For Success – The Homework Hangout all that changed, he came home feeling successful and satisfied with the progress he had made and knowing that all of his homework was complete. Alex and his father enjoyed evenings together without any stress or bickering; family harmony was restored.

Debbie is the owner of the Set Them Up For Success franchise and is looking for passionate people who are ready to make a difference in the lives of the students in their area.

The Elixir: The Final Concept in Fiction and Real Life


by Coach Debby

I have finally created time to write!! Unbelievable. It only took 50 years.

And now for the next dilemma; which book shall I write first?  Will I begin with the memoir?  Perhaps a book about the writers journey?  Or best of all, the secrets your teacher never told you!

Since I can’t decide, I find myself moving back-and-forth between a few manuscripts.  Today I was reflecting on a common “how to” question that students often asked in creative writing class:  how do you finish a story without killing off the hero or doctoring the drama so that everyone lives happily ever after?  For this question, I must lead writers back to the heroes journey, back to the moment where the hero brings home the elixir.

If you have studied Joseph Campbell’s, The Hero’s Journey, you know that all heroes (main characters) go flying back into a dramatic ordeal if they cannot embrace their learnings. It is as certain as the law of gravity.  The ordeal awaits to anyone who cannot move forward by the act of selfless sharing.

Consider that in real life there are thieves who go to jail again and again, but at some point they learned their lesson, and they go on to live honest lives and share their wealth. Yet there is also the thief who can’t break the nasty habit, and for a screenwriter, this may lead to an epic mini-series as each ordeal (or robbery) is drawn out.  Westerns are infamous for this pattern.

We’ve seen so many movies go awry because the director simply cannot part with the knee-jerk impulse to offer a cliche and happy ending.  If you want your writing to be more subtle, it is essential that you find a way for the character to slowly embrace his new intelligence with just a few bumps, innocent scratches, and a lot of humor.

He can’t be perfect. He can’t be beautiful.  He can’t be rich.

He must be humble.  He must be accountable.  He must be universal.

In other words, the story ends with him being an ordinary man. Perhaps the middle and the climax demonstrated heroic acts but the ending shows his simple moral coding. I remember Christopher Vogler’s example of King Aurthur where he spoke of the knights sharing the grail, “as otherwise there would be no healing.”

Above all, he must be able to serve those who can benefit from his knowledge without making himself so unbelievably special.

The heroes journey and how it applies to exceptional writing must stay away from the colossal expansion of the human ego.  In fact, it is the writer’s job to show that the character has truly won the race by humbling himself, abandoning all notion of suicide or prestige, and becoming open to the greatest gift of all: selfless love.  He shows  he is grounded yet available to the human experience of every life he touches.

Do that, and you will sell millions.

Abandonment Recovery with Susan Anderson



September 20, 2016 – Abandonment is THE primal human emotion.

And no one explains this truism more eloquently than psychotherapist and bestselling author, Susan Anderson, whose life work has been to explore abandonment’s depths.

Her new book,  The Abandonment Recovery Workbook is for everyone, those in and outside the thick of abandonment grief.

In this fantastic, information-loaded interview with Anderson, we learn WHY abandonment issues inevitably arise. WHY it is we leave relationships that are destructive emotionally only to find ourselves in another. HOW we can not play puppet to our own primal neurology.

The importance of answering such BIG questions is inadvertently stressed when we learn there are consequences to not dealing with our feelings: We leave the feelings behind and numb around the area of love and connection. Therefore, the only emotion we can feel is insecurity and rejection.


Formal Bio:


Psychotherapist and bestselling author, Susan Anderson, is a returning guest with a new book – The Abandonment Recovery Workbook. The founder of the Outer Child and Abandonment Recovery movements, Susan has devoted the past 30 years of clinical experience and research to helping people resolve abandonment and overcome self-sabotage

The word abandonment conjures up children left at birth, fathers packing up and moving out, sudden lovers betraying one another’s hearts, and sudden death.

But abandonment breaks our hearts in subtle ways, too, as when we are not recognized for our accomplishments, dismissed by a friend, or not invited to a party. It is a challenge that everyone must eventually face at one level or another.

In The Abandonment Recovery Workbook: Guidance through the Five Stages of Healing from Abandonment, Heartbreak, and Loss (New World Library, August 15, 2016), Anderson helps readers heal the wound of abandonment through a step-by-step process of personal recovery.

She guides them through the five stages of abandonment — shattering, withdrawal, internalizing, rage, and lifting — by offering practical tools and exercises designed to help them find greater life and love than ever before.

The Abandonment Recovery Workbook will help readers:
• Overcome the heartbreak caused by the loss of love
• Heal the underlying abandonment wound from past or present losses
• Build self-esteem and overcome fear of rejections
• Resolve issues of mistrust and insecurity
• Identify self-defeating behaviors of the outer child
• Make better choices and build new connections
