Give Me Another 100

First and foremost, THANK YOU! Thank you for listening, your feedback, your delight and joy to engage in our journey with the Opportunity Knocks podcast. Without you there would be no podcast! Some facts about Opportunity Knocks, at one point we were ranked top 10 in three countries including Mexico. I am proud to say we have well over 10k downloads in three years with zero advertising dollars. In addition we have received upwards of 60k views on Insta on numerous episodes. That's huge for a small company and podcast.

Friends, every journey starts with the decision to say YES. To take that first step toward something, anything or anyone is terrifying at times but when we commit that’s where the magic begins. You see there is no guarantee to any endeavor, but the human condition is to think we have control. Well 99.9% of the time you just don’t no matter how destined you think you might be for success. So why not surrender and just go. That’s exactly what happened with the Opportunity Knocks podcast! It was Covid and well I started doing LIVES on Instagram with other female entrepreneurs as I was concerned that many not only women but people were going to have to leave their jobs since they needed to be home taking care of their children. Many people kept suggesting you need a show or a podcast to showcase not only yourself but these amazing women you know. The problem solver in me came out to provide a solution that entrepreneurship might be a viable opportunity. It didn’t say easy but another way of thinking about creating. So many people sit with ideas and never get started. 

Who would think I’d get to 100? It wasn’t a goal but I guess you know me by now. I suppose 100 episodes came from my strong drive, obsession and determination to hear, story tell and replay reflect, transformational coach through these deep episodes from so many talented successful entrepreneurs. They are so much more than that though whether it be a chef, actor, beauty founder, fitness guru, wellness warriors etc.

Want to know their secrets to success? Want to know what I learned? So MUCH. One thing for sure was required by each of them - embracing the unknown, transitions and transformation. It’s exactly what I share with you every day in habits, purpose, clarity, discovery, consistency, collaboration, connection, community, determination, flexibility and resilience are some of the keys.

Guess what else, change and success also require vulnerability. What part of those qualities and values do you too possess? So what are you waiting for? Stop social media surfing and make your dream a reality or schedule a call with me and let’s take action together. Believe me it’s much more manageable plotting a plan toward your purpose with a coach. These amazing people also took something very important - Action. A dream is just a dream until we take action.

Celebrating our 100th episode marks a significant number!  It's been an incredible journey, filled with enlightening conversations, valuable insights, and shared experiences. As we reflect on this milestone, we're overwhelmed with gratitude for the support of our listeners, guests, and everyone who has been part of this journey. Thank you for being with us every step of the way!

Our 100th episode, "Unveil Your Truth: Plant Medicine", is a very special guest and interesting that he is a fellow Latino as I leave this week to convene at the Latino Hive, IConnection in Napa. Carlos Duran!  Born into hardship in NYC and overcoming immense challenges, Carlos found transformation through plant medicine and spiritual guidance. 

From the streets of NYC to the jungles of Colombia, he studied under renowned shamans, shaping him into a beacon of authenticity and empowerment. 

Carlos Duran's message is clear- true wealth lies in holistic abundance, encompassing mind, body, and soul. He inspires others to break free from societal norms and embrace their true selves. While his message isn't for everyone, those seeking genuine joy and empowerment will find his wisdom invaluable. While there are so many exciting episodes in our cue, plant medicine has become ever popular with people seeking ways to connect to themselves and heal from trauma. Every single one of us stores our experiences and trauma in our cells. I wanted to provide a perspective and information to our listeners with a trusted resource that can educate our community.

Join us for an enlightening conversation with Carlos Duran, The Plant Medicine Guide, as we celebrate our 100th episode milestone.
