Self-Love and Confidence Coach Nene Ekufu Reveals How Women Can Tame The Inner Critic and Build Confidence on Influencers Radio

Self-Love and Confidence Coach Nene Ekufu Reveals How Women Can Tame The Inner Critic and Build Confidence on Influencers Radio

Published on September 29, 2022

Self-Love and Confidence Coach Nene Ekufu was the featured guest on Influencers Radio with Jack Mize.

Confidence is one of the most powerful characteristics when it comes to how a person is perceived by others.  And inversely, a lack of confidence can be one of the biggest obstacles to achieving true potential.

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Self-Love and Confidence Coach Nene Ekufu discussed how she is helping reserved women to become more confident so they can show up and be authentic by taming the voice in their heads and empowering them to believe in their capabilities and step into their own fulfilling life … on their terms.

According to Nene, one of the most common and strongest barriers to developing self-confidence is having to face one’s own inner critic. That voice in a person’s head that tells them they’re not good enough. Worrying about what others think can be overwhelming.

As a child in Nigeria, Nene struggled with dyslexia before the condition was understood or even recognized. Being made an example of by teachers and laughed at by other kids left her shy, reserved, and lacking confidence.

During the interview Nene described how her lack of self-worth and love for herself carried into adulthood, she didn’t like or want attention. She shared how her desire to become a sign language interpreter, fueled her intention to change, saying,” I was coasting and just going with the flow, not wanting attention… but I wanted to be a sign language interpreter. I’ve always hidden my dyslexia, but when one of the trainers asked why I was not practicing, I mentioned my dyslexia and explained that I was doing it in my head and she said to me, ‘Oh, you know, you can’t be an interpreter because you’re dyslexic’. That never crossed my mind. My everything, just dropped because I couldn’t do what I wanted to do. I just like, ‘Okay, this is it then’. It was around the same time that Michael Jackson had his final tour, which he called ‘This Is It.’ When I saw an interview he did promoting a concert I just said, ‘You know what? This Is It. I can’t do this anymore. I can’t keep hiding. I know I am capable. I know I can do what I want to do. And this doesn’t feel right.’  This breaking down of myself, of how I’m feeling… That’s where the journey started, of self-discovery, of loving, and just embodying who I am and connecting with myself.  I went through this journey and now I can say, hand on heart, that I truly love every fiber of my being. I’m really connected to that, and I want that for every other soul out there. I want every other woman to be able to say, ‘I love me. This is me. My voice matters and it’s my time.’ That’s what I want for every lady out there.”

Nene went on the become a registered British Sign Language Interpreter and was honored with interpreting for the Majestic Queen of England when she opened the new hospital in London.

Now a firm believer that one’s past does not equal one’s future, Nene is on a mission to show others how to do the same for themselves.  Whether she is working one-on-one, with groups delivering workshops, or through her 21 Days Self-Love Habit Builder Course, Nene is helping women to develop self-love habits and the right mindset, using proven practical tools and techniques so they can clarify what they want and to reconnect with the core of their inner being and beyond.

Children’s Music Education Expert Miss Emily Baum Reveals The Benefits of Learning to Play Music at Any Age on Influencers Radio

Children’s Music Education Expert Miss Emily Baum Reveals The Benefits of Learning to Play Music at Any Age on Influencers Radio

Published on September 29, 2022

Children’s Music Education Expert Miss Emily Baum was the featured guest on Influencers Radio with Jack Mize.

As if the joy of experiencing music isn’t enough, the benefits of learning to play music at a young age have been shown to enhance brain growth, language and math skills, the development of memory, attention, and concentration while fostering discipline, self-confidence, and social skills.

But the benefits of learning to play an instrument aren’t limited to children.  It’s also been shown to have a positive impact on adults…  from brain function, stress relief, boosting blood flow, and just the general sense of accomplishment.

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Children’s Music Education Expert Miss Emily Baum discussed how she is helping kids ranging in age from 4-104 enrich their lives through learning to play the piano.

As a former elementary school teacher, Miss Emily specializes in teaching beginners. She busts through the old stereotype of piano lessons being a chore with her special teaching techniques including Musical Storytime for young children as well as using music as therapy and a tool for mental and physical fitness.

During the interview, Miss Emily shared a concept she so aptly calls Yoga for the Mind, saying, “I use the term ‘Yoga For The Mind’ because when we are doing yoga, and especially at my studio here in Hermosa Beach, there’s a fantastic studio, SoHo Yoga, in the heated space, we can only concentrate on the poses that we’re doing on our breath. And that takes you into a space of expansion and a place where you really kind of block out all the other things that are going on in your world and you’re focusing on yoga, and your breath, and the postures.  And the same thing happens at the piano. It’s kind of a space where you’re focusing on reading the music, feeling the music, playing the music, singing the music, and just absorbing all of the benefits of that, and the result is joy, and the result is happiness and a feeling of uplift. So when I say therapy, I mean that sometimes people are having a rough day they come in, they have their piano lesson, and they leave with a smile on their face. And that’s really important in today’s times where life got real stressful. For two years there, we were doing FaceTime piano lessons and weren’t able to even come into the studio due to the pandemic, unfortunately. But fortunately, the FaceTime and the Zoom sessions were a big hit with my clientele. And I’ve created some online remote programs as well so that I can teach people all over the world.”

Miss Emily enjoys inspiring students with special needs and engaging them in musical activities as part of their therapy. Also a fitness and wellness enthusiast, Emily coaches youth and adults in healthy habits.

The environment of her studio is a peaceful fun place one block from the beach. From Steinway Pianos to Kohler and Campbell uprights and a group of magic keyboards, it’s a fun, magical place to make music and have an educational, relaxing musical experience each and every week.

Listening to this episode, it’s easy to understand how Miss Emily has touched the lives of so many students, creating GRIT and building the self-confidence to face life’s challenges.

Sean Pahut, a Financial Consultant with Montana Wealth Management, was Interviewed on Podcast About The Montana Money Mindset

Sean Pahut, a Financial Consultant with Montana Wealth Management, was Interviewed on Podcast About The Montana Money Mindset

Published on September 29, 2022

Sean Pahut discusses how he develops long-term personal relationships with his clients.

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:  https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-sean-pahut-financial-consultant-with-montana-wealth-management-discussing-the-montana-money-mindset/

Pahut said, ” Through the pandemic, about 100,000 people moved to Montana; we noticed that financial professionals in the other state still managed their financial matters. My goal is to develop a relationship with my clients so that the rapport and trust are so high that they see the tremendous financial tools I can offer them to consider. I feel that mitigating risk is a huge need for all of my clients, and where possible, I present asset classes that provide guaranteed income opportunities, such as through annuities.”

Guaranteed income opportunities, also known as “GIAs,” provide retirees with a guaranteed stream of income from annuities that lasts for the rest of their lives. This type of arrangement can be especially beneficial for those who are worried about outliving their retirement savings.

Not all GIAs are alike, however. Some offer more flexibility than others, and it’s essential to understand the features and benefits of each before making a decision. Here’s a look at some things to consider when evaluating different GIA options:

  1. How long does the income stream last?
    Some GIAs only provide income for a set number of years, while others pay for as long as you live. If retirees are worried about running out of money in retirement, a GIA that pays out for life can give them some confidence.
  2. How much income will they receive?
    The amount of income they’ll receive from a GIA depends on several factors, including the size of the initial investment and the performance of the underlying assets. Some GIAs also offer inflation protection, which can help keep purchasing power intact over time.
  3. What are the fees and expenses?
    All investment products come with fees and expenses, and GIAs are no exception. Be sure to compare the fees charged by different providers before deciding.
  4. What are the risks?
    No investment is without risk, and GIAs are no exception. It’s important to understand the risks involved before making a decision.
  5. What are the tax implications?
    The tax treatment of GIAs can vary depending on the product type and how it’s structured. Making the decision to purchase a GIA is an important one. But with careful consideration, it can be a valuable addition to your retirement income plan. Be sure to consult with a tax advisor before making a decision.
