Listen in to my latest podcast and get to know this amazing woman who is the reason why I got into podcasting in the first place. I met Dr. Gayle a few years ago in the St. Petersburg, Florida area for a public speaking training event. One thing led to another and after being a guest on her show, Living Regret Free with Dr. Gayle, I was invited to start my own show. That was the beginning of an amazing two year podcasting adventure with Courageously Go!

Selected as a “Legend of the Speaking Profession,” Dr. Gayle Carson currently hosts over a dozen radio shows per month and is the founder of the sobradionetwork.com and is also the only woman in the world who has a Doctorate, a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), CMC (Certified Management Consultant) and an FIMC (Fellow to the Institute of Management Consultants).

Listen in to our show and get the latest from Dr. Gayle and why you need to put Miami, Florida and San Diego, California on your travel list!

Thank you Dr. Gayle!

A Chat with My Friend Mai Vu: Greetings from the Grand Canyon

Mai Vu is one of the most open-hearted, free spirited, and adventurous people I know. Tune in to my latest show on Wonder Around the World to hear about Mai’s experience spending last spring when Europe was locking down in Baku, Azerbaijan. We also talked about her adventures on the road with her partner Keith (she did this interview with me as she was enjoying a glass of wine on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon at sunset time. I was not jealous at all)! LOL

Jessica Ngo: There is No Place Like the United States of America

I am thrilled that right now, the eve of our election day here in the USA, this episode with my friend Jessica Ngo dropped… such a strong and authentic human being. Tune in now to learn why she loves America, why she believes there is no place like the United States of America, and why gratitude and a person’s character is so important.

Jessica, thank you for sharing your heart and wisdom with all of us. You are truly an inspiration just being the real and awesome person that you are – and I appreciate how you reminded me (and our listeners as they tune in) of just how good we have it here in the USA.

As I put together this blog post, we are hours away from a very important election day. Many of us are on edge…. I encourage everyone to listen to this ccnversation I had with Jessica – no matter what side of the political aisle you identify with. I believe the spirit, energy, and love here represents all of our citizens. And to anyone outside of the USA who is tuning in: we are glad you are here and when you can – come visit us!

Thank you Jessica. God bless you, all of our friends who are tuning in (and the many who are not)- and yes, god bless America.

First Podcast is Live! Featured Guest Martial Arts Master Quynh Ngo

I am so excited to announce that our first show is live! Thank you so much to my first guest, Quynh Ngo. When I first announced to friends and family that a new podcast concept was in the works, Quynh reached out to me and said: “Debbie DiPietro, give me a call”!

I could not have asked for a better guest. Quynh has lived an interesting life from the time his family fled Vietnam when he was a young boy, to being the leader of an international Martial Arts style, and running his own motivational speaking and coaching business. To learn more you can visit his websites: https://www.cuongnhu.com/ and http://liveandexcel.com/

Together, Quynh and I touched on many topics including why America is such a great country, the importance of living with an open heart, and the opportunities we all have if we are willing to work hard.
You may listen here:

Feel free to let me know how you enjoy the show and I would most appreciate you help me get the word out and share!
I think many of us are tired of the division we are experiencing within our community. This show’s aim is to be a positive alternative. I wonder what would happen if we listened to each other with the goal of understanding? What if we were open to other viewpoints and found a way to mend those bridges (with love)? I wonder…. Enjoy!
