Mary Ellen Ciganovich Named Celebrate You 2021 March Woman of the Month; Nominated for 2021 Women of the Year

Published on April 5, 2022

Mary Ellen Ciganovich was named Celebrate You 2021 March Woman of the Month. She was among 12 women honored on April 3 at the second Celebrate You Woman of the Year Award show hosted on e360TV.com.

“Celebrating yourself means you’re living a life with passion and purpose knowing that you are making the world better. I celebrate myself every day, even on my bad MS days. Celebrating yourself, loving yourself is where healing and success begins,” said Mary Ellen Ciganovich.

Mary Ellen is an educator and consultant at R.E.A.L Health, LLC. She selected the name for her company for what the anagram represents. “Be R.E.A.L. – Really Enthusiastic About Life – because being R.E.A.L. leads you to live your Truth, find your passion, your purpose to make our world just a little bit better!”

She is an inspirational speaker, writer, and author of three books – Healing Words: Life Lessons to Inspire, Taking Responsibility Unleashes True Healing; and Truth Lives, which were released during the pandemic in 2021. In addition to her writing, she is the Executive Producer of the show “Truth of the Day;” Co-host of Cyrus Webb’s Amazon Live show “Words I Choose to Live By” and the Executive Editor of Conversations Live Magazine.

As such, she has been dedicated to posting her Truth of the Day on several social media sites since 2011. All her posts end with Sincerely with love, Mary Ellen Ciganovich.

Mary Ellen believes “Wisdom cannot be taught as wisdom must be learned through your life experiences. Every experience makes you stronger and wiser as you know what you should do, yet more importantly what you should not do.”

Mary Ellen Ciganovich can be found on social media including Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, and Twitter.

Co-Founder of Celebrate You and CEO of The Bradford Group, LaWanna Bradford explained, “In Celebrate You, we believe that when a woman is able to truly embrace and celebrate herself, she is then able to rise up and make an impact in the lives of her family, her community, the nation, and ultimately the world.”

“During 2021, we celebrated 12 amazing women who dared to face the changes and the challenges and strive to make a difference in the world. These women are unique in their backgrounds, experiences, and professions. However, the one thing they have in common is they live life intentionally and on purpose. They believe in the power of co-creating a life of abundance and impact. These exceptional women are leaders and influencers. They always seek to find ways to encourage, inspire, uplift, and celebrate others,” she said.

Barbara Beckley, Co-Founder, and CEO of The Diamond Factor Experience said, “LaWanna and I found out that by talking about Celebrate You, it was important to reach as many women as possible with our message so that they understand the importance of celebrating themselves and others. This concept continues to resonate and we have more women joining where we now have people who are part of the Celebrate You family from over 20 countries, with our largest presence in the US, UK, Canada, Uganda, and Jamaica.”

Medi-Share partners with Lestonnac Free Clinic for their “Wheels That Heal” Grand Opening

Published on May 19, 2022

Medi-Share partnered with the Lestonnac Clinic to purchase a new mobile medical clinic and helped introduce their new “Wheels That Heal” mobile unit to reach the uninsured in southern California.

Christian Care Ministry/ Medi-Share, America’s leading health care sharing ministry saw a great need for a travelling medical clinic in many parts of southern California. This unit anticipates to reach over 2000 patients a year in a community with limited access to resources. This mobile medical clinic is state of the art, with the ability to provide free medical, vision, and dental care to the most vulnerable in southern California. Lestonnac is also partnering with the American Red Cross to provide additional resources and support after a local natural disaster.

When first introduced to the concept, Medi-Share appealed to its members nationwide to hit the goal and met the need.

“This mobile, freestanding clinic concept is a model that many other clinics can replicate across the country. Being able to get these resources into homeless encampments is life-changing to those who don’t have access to quality health care. Medi-Share is excited to be a part of this movement, and believes that efforts like this help us live out our vision of “Transforming society through the Biblical model of sharing.” -Evelio Silvera, VP of Communications and Government Affairs for Christian Care Ministry.

This mobile medical unit, “Wheels That Heal,” has been customized to harness every inch to its fullest potential. The generous layout has an exam room, waiting area, nurse station, and a restroom. It is equipped with an exam chair, which fully reclines, so it can be used for both medical and dental visits. The unit runs on solar power and is supplied with Wi-Fi to provide connection for virtual telemedicine visits. This equipment allows a patient’s appointment to be transmitted live to a remote volunteer provider, through a HIPAA-compliant connection, allowing for virtual medical consultations. This unit will further expand Lestonnac’s ability to provide health care services to patients in southern California, who previously lacked access to care.   

“It is such a privilege to be here to celebrate the grand opening of this mobile medical clinic. We would like to recognize Lestonnac Free Clinic and Medi-Share/Christian Care Ministry for all you have done to make this a reality. We have no doubt that our communities will benefit from your vision and initiative to go where there is a need. Our uninsured communities, our low income communities, the most vulnerable. Thank you so much and congratulations.” –Abigail Fachtmann Field Representaitve CA District 39 office of Young Kim

Lestonnac’s mission has always been to provide free health care services to low-income and uninsured residents in southern California. Through mobile expansions such as these, Lestonnac can bring that mission directly to those who need it most, right in their own community. Medi-Share is honored to partner alongside Lestonnac.

#1 Bestselling Author and English Confidence Coach Francisca Garcés Launches Here Signature Program The English Confidence Method

#1 Bestselling Author and English Confidence Coach Francisca Garcés Launches Here Signature Program The English Confidence Method

Published on May 18, 2022

English Confidence Coach Francisca Garcés, MA to Help Ambitious Non-Native English speaking Professionals to achieve total fluency through confidence building with her signature program the English Confidence Method

Since the early stages of second language acquisition, students struggle to separate grammar notations from real-life English application and expression. Professionals and career-driven intermediate English speakers find it hard to use English as a tool for self-development and the uplevel of career and life opportunities in English-speaking countries and scenarios. 

According to Francisca, one of the ways to become a great speaker and leader in a professional field in your second language is confidence building. Language learning is not enough. There has to be an element of mindset involved when traveling abroad or developing yourself professionally in an English-speaking scenario. Through mastery of discomfort, and reprogramming your brain to take action and build small habits, growth, personal or professional, inevitably happens. 

Unfortunately, English learners are sometimes limited by the following thought: “I need to be in an English-speaking country to practice and master English communication skills.” And although this accelerates results, it is more about your willingness and sound immersion. Francisca did not grow up in an English-speaking country but had such passion and determination for language learning that she did not let that stop her. 

Inside her signature program, Francisca combines both her amazing English communication skills as a non-native English speaker and confidence expert and her life experience as a depression and anxiety survivor. So, she knows about transformation and action. Because as language learners and high-achieving professionals, we can’t rely on theory and excuses.

In order to remove limiting beliefs around English mastery, Francisca adds “It’s not about the country. It’s about you and your willingness to put in the work, step out of your comfort zone and stand out from the crowd with confidence. No matter the circumstances.” A belief she encourages to her students inside the English Confidence Method. 

The English Confidence Method is an accelerated method to help ambitious, high-achieving non-native intermediate English speaking professionals go from feeling frustrated with their English communication skills and limited in growth to confident, fluent, and conversational so that they can capitalize on life and career opportunities in an English speaking country or scenario.   

Dalila Bivolaru, a brilliant member of Francisca’s signature program, said “Thanks to participating in this course I got my visa for working in the US and, I have participated in different interviews with foreign companies and got a job for the summer, initiating conversations with people from different countries.” 

Francisca Garcés Narváez, MA, is a multi-passionate and creative entrepreneur from South America who fell in love with music at 1 and English at 7. It is her mission to live every day being creative and helping others expand their mindset and opportunities through English communication skills. Her online course, the English Confidence Method, was designed to provide an effective method for high-achieving non-native English-speaking professionals from all over the world to become confident and fluent to uplevel their career opportunities. She recently became a #1 international best-selling author of Women who lead, along with other female trailblazers and entrepreneurs. 

Francisca hopes that non-native English-speaking professionals will learn how to master discomfort and English communication skills to achieve total confidence, and fluency with her efficient, and immersive methodology.

Carlos Daniel González from Colombia, who participated in the program, said “Her pronunciation system is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Furthermore, I now know with absolute certainty that recurrent practice, discipline, and continuity are what lead to the expected results. By training just a little each week, or on the weekends, you will not be able to become the English fluent and confident speaker you want to be. 

For more information about the program and how it can help you to uplevel your life and career opportunities in an English speaking country or scenario, book a call with Francisca’s team: https://calendly.com/englishconfidence/60min
