Boot Camp Challenge

Mar 13, 2018

I am inviting you to grab a coffee, tea or wine and take a seat cuz I got a story for you!

My guest on this week's podcast is a coach of a university cheerleading squad, winner of four national championships, top sales rep within her company, a wife, mother, and a fitness professional.

And, she has a child with severe special needs.

I would like you to meet my friend Carrie. Carrie and I met close to twenty years ago while teaching “aerobics”.  Between us, we have six kids, two husbands (the originals), fifty plus years in the fitness industry and forty plus years of running businesses.

We try to meet monthly for lunch, wine and conversation.  And, when we meet, we talk about everything from college kids, to special needs kids.  Marriages and how hard they are to keep going.  Being a control freak and giving up control.  And, everything in between.

When you listen to Carrie, you can’t help be in awe of her joyful heart, her truth bombs (we both cry a little on here) and her servant’s heart for others. 

So, I invited her to share her thoughts, stories and nuggets of wisdom with us.  And, as always, she gets right to the guts of whatever the topic.  Here are just few:

  •  The most important lesson she has learned raising a special needs son.
  • The benefits of giving up control when you are a control freak.
  • Her number one strategy to stay organized living a crazy filled life.
  • Sticking with it when she wanted to quit because… legacy.
  • How she is able to “do it all” but not really.
  • The number one life lesson she hopes her college kids take away from her.

Carrie, I love you so much.  I love your energy, your tenacity, your persistence and your passion.  Most of all, I love you for your transparency and sharing your story with all of us. You are an inspiration!

Much love, xoxo
