Whatever you do, DON’T miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye podcast! Stacey Gualandi interviews Mel Robbins, the author, motivational speaker and – starting September 16th – host of her first daytime TV talk show, The Mel Robbins Show!

Mel Robbins’ international bestseller The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work and Confidence with Everyday Courage is a certified self-publishing sensation.

Her Tedx talk How to Stop Screwing Yourself Over below has surpassed 20 million views.

And her personal appearances have not only motivated millions but also made her one of the most sought-after speakers in the country.

Side-note: I first met Mel Robbins in 2011 while covering the More Reinvention Convention for TWE. Since then, I’ve always wanted to interview her.

Three months ago, I picked up her 5 Second Rule after dealing with some health issues, and then out-of-the-blue, I got to interview her!

But Robbins says it’s not a crazy coincidence: “It’s meant to be. People show up in your life when you’re ready to hear it.”

Robbin’s knows-of-what-she-speaks.

The married mother of three and former criminal lawyer-turned-entrepreneur admits her life is a mess-to-success story. “I’m not an expert. I’m a life-tested survivor,” she says. “I’m good at getting out of jams.”

Robbins says she hit rock bottom almost 11 years ago. She was unemployed, facing bankruptcy and suffered from debilitating anxiety. “I wasn’t good at liking myself.” But one day she decided on a new approach to getting up in the morning.

“I counted out loud 5-4-3-2-1 and then sat up,” says Robbins. “That was the moment that changed my life. It is the power of a decision; you are literally one decision from a totally different life.”

Now life is taking her in a totally new direction: daytime television. Robbins conquered the airwaves with a popular radio show and worked as a CNN contributor, but admits TV is a whole new animal.

While she jokes she doesn’t know how to do a talk show, Robbins says success will come by “being myself and making an impact.”

Tune in to our chat to learn how Robbins cures anxiety; what is a “mindset/reset”; why she dedicates herself to helping others (“I know what it feels like to feel alone, isolated and start to lose hope. I don’t want anyone to feel that way”); and what she expects from her new talk show.

“I hope it is a daily destination for empowering, actionable advice and perspective change that you can put into your own life that helps you take control,” says Robbins.

“I want you to identify patterns that no longer work for you and replace them. That’s when life changes.”

The Mel Robbins Show debuts Monday, September 16th! For more information, go to www.melrobbins.com and check your local listings.

Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye podcast with Catherine Anaya as I talk with Mesha Davis, CEO of the Arizona Foundation for Women, a nonprofit that serves as a key resource with a long history of effectively advocating on behalf of women.

I attended their 2019 Awards Luncheon and was impressed by their inclusion and celebration of men who support and advocate for women.

Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye podcast with Catherine Anaya as I talk with Julie Giese, President of International Speedway Corporation’s ISM Raceway.

Julie oversees promotion and operation of the newly renovated motorsport track in Avondale, Arizona, just outside Phoenix.

She is the only woman president of any of the thirteen ISC tracks which include the Daytona International Speedway and the Watkins Glen International.

I heard Julie speak at a reception in her honor shortly after she was promoted to ISM Raceway President in the fall of 2018. I was very impressed with her career and passion for mentoring women.

Julie shares with me how she grew up a racing fan on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and how she worked her way into and up the ladder of the motorsports industry.

She is the force behind the design and project management of ISM Raceway’s recent $178 million dollar renovation.

Julie talks about the challenges she faced in both areas. Julie also recognizes her role as a changemaker and offers some important perspective on why mentoring other women is so important to her and the advice she likes to share.

Plus, you’ll learn why her visits back home still include chores on the farm.

TWE RADIO: Bestselling Author Lisa See On the Remarkable Sea Women of Jeju Island

By Stacey Gualandi/May 30, 2019

Don’t miss my BRAND NEW interview on The Women’s Eye with New York Times bestselling author Lisa See. Her newest novel The Island of Sea Women has already been honored as an “Indie Next pick” by Independent booksellers, and Barnes & Noble chose the novel for its nationwide March 2019 Book Club.

See is currently on a very busy national tour promoting The Island of Sea Women, the story of a lifelong relationship between two best girlfriends set against the real-life backdrop of the little-known free-diving women of South Korea’s Jeju Island.

Book Cover of Lisa See's new book, Island of Sea Women of Jeju IslandSee’s eleventh book is a close examination of the female bond and forgiveness on a personal level. She says the theme of forgiveness truly “permeates the entire book.”

“I have been so touched on this tour by how far people have come to hear me,” says See.

“I think it’s because I am writing about women in a way … that people can really connect their own lives to these fictional characters. They think about, ‘What would I do in that situation?’”

Lisa See has been a good friend to The Women’s Eye since 2011 when she first joined me to talk about for her #1 novel Dreams of Joy. More recently, she was kind enough to write a quote for the cover of our book 20 Women Changemakers.

Needless to say, it was our pleasure to have See back to talk about her latest work of historical fiction.

See says she spent eight years writing and doing extensive research for this historical novel. She even visited the island and witnessed first-hand the elderly women who are still diving to harvest seaweed – all while holding their breath for up to three minutes at a time.

“I wanted to capture it while I still could,” says See of the hundreds-of-years-long tradition that could die out in 15 years.

Be sure to listen to our interview to find out why See prefers fiction (“there is an emotional connection that I don’t get with non-fiction”), why she writes the book’s last line first, and how many years she has been working on her next book (26!). Then read The Island of Sea Women! (And yes, she still types using only three fingers!)

Be sure to tune in to my BRAND NEW interview on The Women’s Eye Radio with guest Kelsey Witherow, the “fearless leader” of DOUGHP, a “legit cookie dough” business!

New DOUGHP Dessert Shop in Las Vegas

In 2015, Witherow got sober, left a career in high-tech product marketing, and followed her passion for baking.

She opened her first store with “edible, bakeable, and ridiculously tasty cookie dough” on San Francisco’s PIER 39, then a kiosk at the Giants’ Oracle Park, and just recently branched out to the Miracle Mile shops inside Planet Hollywood.

It was at the opening of her Las Vegas Strip location that I first met Witherow and became instantly taken with her story.

Her relationship with alcohol she says, “was unhealthy … and I wanted to be the best version of myself, all the time.”

Now, this “cookie mom-ster” (as I affectionately call her) is taking cookie dough to the next level. In 2018, DOUGHP was voted a “Best Dessert” title in San Francisco so, you might say, she is rolling in the (cookie) dough! I’m very proud to say I’m an official DOUGHP “spoonlicker!”

To make the world a little sweeter, DOUGHP is also on a mission to recognize and donate to non-profits who support mental health and substance abuse issues.

And Witherow has more good news to share: On May 5th, she will be featured on the 10th season of ABC’s Shark Tank. She made the cut after some 40,000 budding entrepreneurs tried out for the popular reality show. Don’t miss her debut and find out if the five host titans of industry took a bite out of DOUGHP.

YUMMY!

Not only has Witherow found success, but she also found herself, and now she’s too legit to quit.

TWE RADIO: Author Kimberly Friedmutter On Tapping Into Your Subconscious Power

Kimberly Friedmutter and TWE Host Stacey Gualandi

By Stacey Gualandi/April 18, 2019

A BRAND NEW interview on The Women’s Eye Radio as Stacey Gualandi interviews Kimberly Friedmutter, the author of the just released Subconscious Power: Use Your Inner Mind to Create the Life You’ve Always Wanted.

Friedmutter has helped everyone from powerful CEOs to celebrities by simply tapping into their subconscious.

“That’s where all of your primal gusto comes from, your gut, your intuition, your instincts,” she says. Essentially, it’s like “zoning out to really zone in.”

But now she is paving the way for all of us to achieve positive, lasting change, through her new book.

You can apply a form of self-hypnosis to access the  inner mind, she says, and by doing that you can achieve your highest goals.

I first met Friedmutter in Las Vegas last year as she was working on Subconscious Power. She says her “6 Principles” to unlocking your mind and “hypnotic hacks” – or self -hypnosis exercises – helped her personally overcome obstacles and find clarity.

I thought (subconsciously) it would be great to share her guidance so we might all have the opportunity to start living our best life.

Friedmutter began a modeling career at 14. She later became an actress and TV personality; and after a long-running radio talk show in Los Angeles, she earned the nickname “Mystic in Cowboy Boots.”

Now, as a board-certified master hypnotist, therapist and life management expert, her life’s work is devoted to bringing people back into balance. “Everything you need to create the life of your dreams is within you,” says the first-time author.

“My book will teach you how to make choices that are positive and affirming. With a little help, you can unlock the magic you already possess.”

In the words of Friedmutter: “Expect the exceptional.”
