Aira Agrawal – WRMB015 – Unplug From Your Screens – Sometimes

Aira Agrawal is the Founder and CEO of ByeByeScreen.com and author of "7 Step Digital Cleanse For Families."

Feel like your smart phone has taken over your life? Are your kids obsessed with video gaming, Netflix binging, and social media scrolling? Is screen time impacting your family time? If you feel like you never get a break from technology and want relief – then this podcast is for you.

Even better, you’ll hear how from a 16-year-old author and entrepreneur who started an online business called www.ByeByeScreen.com to address this urgent issue.

Aira’s research showed that most books and articles on the subject were written by adults from their perspective. She felt strongly that teenagers needed a voice too. In her book and workshops she opens eyes to how her own family used a collaborative vs. punitive approach to solve for:

*Her 8-year old video gaming brother who didn’t quite like parental controls. 

*Her YouTube obsessed sister who watched videos brushing her teeth and while eating dinner.

*Her Instagram exploring (just 5 minutes!) that was cutting into homework time. 

This trailblazer shares poignant stories about:

*How taking first prize at the Young Entrepreneurs Academy impacted her drive.

*The importance of her father’s mentorship.

*Overcoming her fear to be taken seriously. 

*Why she was surprised at a conference that there weren’t more female entrepreneurs. 

*The app she’s working on next.

Terri Waibel – WRMB014 – Grief Is Misunderstood

Terri Waibel is the Founder and Clinical Director at Center for Compassion.

Grief, trauma and loss are highly mis-understood in our society and as someone that has lived through her own tragedies with the death of her brother and daughter ATHENA recipient Terri Waibel is uniquely qualified to help others that are struggling - she started her business because she struggled to find someone to help her with her traumatic grief. This is a must listen for anyone that has ever experienced loss plus Terri has a great entrepreneurial story to tell as well.

ATHENA recipient, Terri Waibel, exemplifies one of the most important 8 Principles of Enlightened Leadership in the Becoming ATHENA Leadership Model: Give Back.

She turned the unspeakable tragedies of loss she endured in her life into meaningful, fulfilling life’s work. A compassionate bereavement specialist, she elegantly tackles a subject that is widely misunderstood: GRIEF.

Terri draws on personal experiences and extensive training to share what to say and how to say it when encountering grief moments. She offers advice on how to “be there” for loved ones when you’re not quite sure what to say, and how important rituals can be in healing. She even reminds us what not to say to honor the grieving process. You’ll also hear from Jeff Biletnikoff, the host, who after losing his mother was inspired during his grieving process to launch the ATHENA International Women Really Mean Business Podcast. Practical yet profound, this podcast is for all those listeners who want to communicate hope for themselves and loved ones that may be heartbroken with grief.
