Erika Lyremark Talks Vanilla Manifestation, Entrepreneurship, and Putting Coaches out of Business

Think Like a Stripper with Erika LyremarkErika Lyremark is one of my favorite people! Back in 2010 or 2011, I needed some guidance for my business at the time. I was at a crossroad. Erika’s ad showed up in my sidebar and I was immediately drawn to the fact that she used to be a stripper – and she had the confidence to ooze luxury and sex appeal.

Fast forward to today, and she’s one of the few coaches I would recommend anyone work with. First of all she has real experience – not just coaching certifications and licensed facilitator rights. She has her own shit.

Second, she’s wrestled two industries that require a lot of strength and persistence: commercial real estate and stripping. She’s no idiot either. Erika has degrees in fashion apparel and women’s studies, and she has a spiritual insight like you wouldn’t believe. I had to wait for the right time to have this conversation – and here it is.

Erika and I discussed:

  • Vanilla Manifestation – and why it hurts your business
  • The secret to getting anywhere in life and business
  • What it’s really like working as a stripper
  • Big lessons from commercial real estate
  • Why making a drastic move is the best way to do something
  • MARK’D Mastery, and how it’s changing lives

You can also get a copy of Erika’s Book, Think Like a Stripper, by heading to her website. It’s a great read, and I highly recommend it.

Kimberly Ficklin Talks Transforming Your Life with Nutrition, Food Journaling, and NLP

kimberly ficklinKimberly Ficklin didn’t initially set out to become a nutritionist. Life was moving along as planned for this Portland professional when illness forced her to take a serious detour.

Refusing to be locked into a lifetime of endless drug prescriptions, she turned to nutrition and lifestyle changes for alternative solutions. In 4 to 6 months, she was on her way to living a completely different life – without the diagnosis, the prescriptions, or the consistent discomfort of her ailments.

Kimberly looks and feels better than ever – and she’s on a mission to assist others in transforming their reality through healthier choices – from mind to tummy.

Kimberly and I discussed:

  • How illness transformed her life path to become a nutritionist
  • The importance of eating for health – and upper limiting
  • Why breakfast should be your largest meal for the day
  • Why not all NLP is sleazy, manipulative, or disgusting
  • Food journaling to test your nutrition hacks
