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.”

TWE RADIO: Carole Brody Fleet On Loss, Widowhood and Taking Your Life Back

Be sure to tune in to my BRAND NEW interview on The Women’s Eye Radio with Carole Brody Fleet, widely credited as America’s go-to expert on grief recovery. Carole joins me in the studio to talk about her latest book, Loss is a Four-Letter Word, a Bereavement Boot Camp For the Widowed, available now.

Carole Brody Fleet's book "Loss is a Four Letter Word"/Photo: Courtesy Carole Brody Fleet | The Women's Eye Magazine and Radio ShowWhen Carole Brody Fleet lost her husband Mike to ALS, she was a young mother of a 9-year-old girl. Resources on how to navigate this unimaginable and frightening “widowhood journey” were hard to come by so she began writing.

She understood what it meant to feel alone and marginalized, and “wanted to be someone that people felt they could turn to.”

This award-winning author is not only a wonderful writer and tireless advocate for widows, she is also a long-time friend of mine and TWE. I first interviewed her nearly a decade ago after my dad passed away.

Her first book Widows Wear Stilettos was well-received within the widow community and beyond, and was a tremendous help to both me and my mom. Since then, she has been a frequent and welcome guest on the show, and she is my “hero!” (How’s that for a four-letter word?!)

Loss is a Four-Letter Word is the fourth in a series dealing with grief (including Happily EVEN After and When Bad Things Happen to Good Women).

In this book, readers have to ask themselves, “What what am I doing to facilitate my own healing?”

Fleet then guides them through actionable, reasonable baby steps which can help them start moving in a forward-focus (not “get over”), positive direction…to a place of peace. Says the motivational speaker: “I’m needed to be compassionate, but beyond that, what are we going to do to fix this? That’s my job.”

Through her boot-camp style lessons and end-of-chapter affirmations she calls EKITA (an acronym for “Extra Kick In The Ass”!), Fleet says she hopes those suffering through a challenging life-journey will gain a sense of empowerment.

Widows Wear Stilettos Book Cover | The Women's Eye Magazine and Radio ShowWhether you are dealing with the loss of a spouse, beloved pet, or even the end of a job, Fleet says it is an honor to be there for people at their most challenging moment and to offer hope and promise.

“There are … things that I never knew that widowhood had taught me, and I am grateful for that experience.”

By Patricia Caso/January, 2019

For this installment of TWE’s First Time Authors, we found America Deconstructed, a compelling anthology of sixteen immigrants who have come to America and their experiences adapting as new citizens. From a boy who escaped the Taliban to a love story of an African couple negotiating the American culture, these narratives illustrate immigrants’ struggles and resilience.

“We hope our book can create tolerance among people. As people I think we need to celebrate differences, and accept individuals for who they are.”  Chaithanya Sohan

Chaithanya Sohan and her coauthor Shaima Adin know the heartbreak and sometimes humorous situations immigrants find themselves in because they are immigrants themselves. Chai gave us some insight into why they wrote on this timely subject and the drawn-out journey they went through to publish it…   [Read more…]

TWE RADIO: Adventurer Susan Purvis On Finding the Lost with Trusty Teammate Tasha

Don’t miss our BRAND NEW interview on The Women’s Eye Radio as Stacey Gualandi talks with Susan Purvis, the author of Go Find: My Journey To Find the Lost – and Myself, about the bond we ALL share with (wo)man’s best friend.

I knew I’d love this book, and I could almost guarantee I would shed a few tears. I am a big dog lover (my license plate is “Muttmom” for goodness sake!) and my boss Pam Burke also is a dog devotee.

So it was quite touching to chat with Purvis from her home in Whitefish, Mont., the “creative haven” where she wrote about their personal journey to “go find” the lost.

An avalanche that took the life of a 6 year old inspired Purvis to adopt a 5-week-old puppy in 1995 and train her in avalanche, wilderness and water recovery. Purvis says it would become a relationship like none other.

“I know I’ll never bond with another being like I have with Tasha,” she writes in her first memoir.

Purvis shares dramatic stories of dozens of missions they led. Miraculously, some lives were saved, and sadly, many were lost forever.

As the founder of Crested Butte Outdoors International, Susan Purvis is an expert wilderness medic and all-around adventure queen who became one of the top high-altitude search-and-rescue teams in Colorado – together with her trusty teammate Tasha, a beautiful black Labrador.

While they were determined to help those who needed saving, Purvis says she made a discovery of her own along the way: she had lost herself. It was Tasha, she writes, who was “saving me from being buried in my own avalanche.”

With unflinching honesty about fulfilling promises, accepting divorce, competing in a male-dominated profession (“I had to prove myself three times more than men”), and saying goodbye, Go Find shows how making a canine connection can help one “find passion, purpose and philanthropy.”

Purvis says this journey is one of her greatest achievements.

Looking for adventure, or want an inspiring book to gift travelers this holiday season? National Geographic has just selected Go Find as one of the best travel books to read now. Congratulations, Susan!

TWE RADIO: Writer Beth Howard On Life, Language and a “Hausfrau Honeymoon”

The Women’s Eye Radio host Stacey Gualandi talks to Author Beth Howard, about life, language, her book “Hausfrau Honeymoon”.

By Stacey Gualandi/October, 2018

Don’t miss our NEWEST episode of The Women’s Eye Radio with Stacey Gualandi and Beth Howard, the author of her third book, Hausfrau Honeymoon – Love, Language, and Other Misadventures in Germany.

AKA the “Pie Lady, Howard is no stranger to The Women’s Eye. She joined us on the air once before to talk about her last book, Ms. American Pie, which is full of recipes, stories and creative ideas on all-things-pie.

Beth Howard book/Photo: P. BurkeThe prolific writer, who once lived in the historic American Gothic house in Eldon, Iowa, now resides on an Iowa farm, and that’s just where I caught up with her to talk about her latest memoir.

The self-described adventurous free-spirit (“I’m not good at following rules.”) has worn many hats: Kenyan coffee company entrepreneur, pie stand owner, dotcom web producer, PR specialist, blogger and even a former “baker to the stars.”

And for four years in the 2000s, she was an out-of-her-element newlywed, living with her husband Marcus in Stuttgart, Germany.

In her signature “lively”style, Hausfrau Honeymoon could be considered an anti-love letter to Germany as Howard tackles the language barrier, chauvinism, and (lack of) car cupholders in her newly adopted home.

“Nothing against Germany, but it doesn’t fit my personality. It may be my rebellious nature,” says Howard.

Beth Howard, author of a “Hausfrau Honeymoon” discusses her book, love, life and language.

She shares the good, the bad and the ugly about Germany but admits living there “totally expanded my life experience. You don’t know how much time you have left so I always write with a sense of urgency, especially after a sudden loss.”

Howard wrote the book 12 years ago while struggling to adjust to her foreign surroundings and new marriage. Now, it is a prequel of sorts to her first book, Making Piece, about the sudden death of her husband, and how baking pies helped her cope with the horrible grief.

Howard says Hausfrau Honeymoon is about girl power and learning to take charge of your life, no matter the circumstances. Despite her first uneasy go-around in Germany, she says she’d definitely do it again. After all, it gave her a bookful of material and, as she says, “My life is so much richer for it.”

Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi and television personality and award-winning journalist Samantha Harris, author of the new book Your Healthiest Healthy: 8 Easy Ways to Take Control, Help Prevent and Fight Cancer, and Live a Longer, Cleaner, Happier Life.

Samantha Harris book cover/Photo: “Author” is yet another title for this multi-hyphenate host-turned-health advocate. The Emmy winner is best known as the host of “Entertainment Tonight,” “Extra” and “Dancing With the Stars.”

But Harris is also a public speaker, certified trainer and a cancer survivor and thriver – perhaps her most important role to date (besides mom to Jossie and Hilly!)! In 2014, Harris found a lump AFTER a mammogram all-clear, and was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Following a double mastectomy, Harris decided to “come out” publicly and so began her mission to take control of her disease, educate herself on her body IQ, and write a “crisis survival guide” for others, “one manageable step at a time.”

Harris and I met years ago while she was at “E!” and I was reporting for “Inside Edition.” When I heard about her cancer journey, I was shocked because she was the healthiest person I knew! Unfortunately, she was an exception to the rule. Now I want to share her personal cancer journey.

TV Host Samantha Harris/Photo: Courtesy Samantha HarrisIn this inspiring conversation, Harris – who is now cancer-free – talks about what to do if disease hijacks your life, how to do a “household hose-down” of toxins, and the importance of being your best health advocate.

Oh, and how she came to love avocados!!

Together Harris and her husband Michael created “Gotta Make Lemonade”, a community of people who share their personal stories to inspire others.

By Patricia Caso/September 5th, 2018

What could be more important for communities and children than clean, drinkable water? Pediatrician and Professor Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha is known for bringing her research and unrelenting call for change in the lead-poisoned Flint, Michigan water to the nation’s attention.

Lead is a neurotoxin, affecting young children most severely. There is no safe level. To date, 140,000 people have been impacted from the 18-month ordeal.

“This is a story about how all of us, no matter where we are, what we do, or how we came to this country, have the power within us to open our eyes, to be awake to these injustices all around us, to get involved, to be active…” Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha

In Dr. Mona’s new book What the Eyes Don’t See–A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City, she writes about how she came to find high levels of lead in her young patients’ blood. With the help of the community, she then courageously confronted  government officials  demanding a change back to healthy water. I caught up with Dr. Mona to learn more about her determination and why she sees that her advocacy is just beginning…  [Read more…]

TWE RADIO: Authors Sharlee Jeter and Dr. Sampson Davis On Unleashing “the Stuff” Within Us

TWE Radio host Stacey Gualandi talks to authors Sharlee Jeter and Dr. Sampson Davis about “The Stuff,” their first book collaboration.

By Stacey Gualandi/July, 2018

Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye Radio with Stacey Gualandi! Authors Sharlee Jeter and Dr. Sampson Davis talk about their first collaboration, The STUFF–Unlock Your Power To Overcome Challenges, Soar and Succeed.

Sharlee Jeter is the President of the Turn 2 Foundation, a non-profit formed by her brother, Yankee baseball legend Derek Jeter, that helps young people turn away from drugs and turn toward healthy lifestyles. Dr. Sampson Davis is the New York Times bestselling author, philanthropist, speaker and ER physician. Together, they have created The STUFF Movement to help us discover the hidden strengths within.

“The stuff” is an inner fortitude, and both authors know of what they speak. They’ve lived it. Jeter was diagnosed with cancer at 21 while attending college. Instead of giving up, she stayed in school and got treatment.

Fifteen years later, she is surviving and thriving. And Dr. Davis grew up in a crime-ridden New Jersey city, and faced time behind bars, yet went on to become a successful doctor and internationally-known motivational speaker and the founder of The Three Doctors Foundation. Oprah even dubbed him “the premiere role model of the world!”

"The Stuff" by Sharlee jeter and Dr. Sampson Davis/Cover provided by Gallery BooksThis interview couldn’t have come at a better time for me as I’ve been tackling several difficult issues with my family, dog and health, seemingly all at once. Both Jeter and Dr. Davis certainly offer pathways to answers on how not to give in to life’s nasty curve balls.

In the STUFF, Jeter and Dr. Davis take readers through 11 elements (i.e. “push limits,” “choose to hope,” “forge a motivation statement”) that will highlight how to overcome any obstacle. The authors say finding the Stuff can be learned, but it can’t be hurried…all you have to do is turn it on.
