Episode 21. Lamisha talks to me about her journey to becoming a Life Coach, the ways we get in our own way when we’re pursuing our dream, and figuring out what our gifts are. And whatever your dream is, it’s possible to achieve it!
“When you take that teeny tiny step of faith…then you find a spark of inspiration that leads you to the next step. It really seems like magic, and it feels like magic when it happens that way, but it is so much fun. It makes the journey to wherever you’re going just incredible.”

I don’t see my parents as much since they retired and moved a couple of hours away. So when I got the rare chance to spend an afternoon with my mom, I asked if she’d talk with me for the podcast. I wanted to hear about when she was growing up. Among other things, we talked about kids running freely all over the neighborhood, not keeping your front doors locked, and how things today are different and somehow still the same. I don’t ask enough about my parent’s histories, and this was a fun chat for me, getting to hear new stories and getting some of what I thought I knew cleared up a bit.
“I would not want to be a young adult or a young teenager again. But I would go back and be a kid again. Especially if I could pull up more of the memories of being a kid again, if I could just restore those memories.”
