In Her Voice Ep. 32: Orly Wahba on Kindness

Orly Wahba is an educator, speaker, entrepreneur, author and community activist passionate about inspiring and motivating people to be the best that they can be. Since her teenage years, Orly has worked extensively with tweens and teens as well as local charities in her community providing a helping hand for those who need it most.

Orly began her career in Kindness as a Middle School educator at the Yeshivah of Flatbush in Brooklyn, NY, teaching the children to embrace unity, build their self-esteem, and use the power they have to influence the world for good. Orly is well known for incorporating and integrating ideas of kindness, love and respect in the hearts and minds of her students both in and out of the classroom setting. She is often quoted as saying, “Kindness, don’t just do it…LIVE IT!”

Yearning to make a larger impact with her philanthropic work and after having been inspired by a small sign on a plane labeled “Life Vest Inside” Orly founded (2011) Life Vest Inside, a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire, empower and educate people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness. Life Vest Inside encourages people to embrace the incredible power of giving and recognizes that in times of hardship, kindness, like a life vest, keeps the world afloat.

LVI shot to national attention when Orly’s short film Kindness Boomerang went viral, receiving more than 100 million views and coverage in media outlets such as The TODAY ShowNBCCBSADWEEKInternational Business Times and more. In 2013 Orly was invited to speak at TED about the Power of Kindness.

Most recently Orly published her first work, Kindness Boomerang, a lesson-a-day book focusing on developing the kindness muscle.

Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

  • How kindness creates empowerment

  • What she learned by going all in on her big dreams.

  • The fear of actually pursuing the dream.

  • How we begin to doubt our abilities to fulfill our dreams

  • Orly tells the story of how losing her home in a fire during high school spiraled into a deep depression where she almost lost her dreams and who she was.

  • The power of giving to heal ourselves.

  • The difference between giving from strength and giving from weakness.

  • Taking ownership of our emotions and allowing ourselves to feel our pain.

  • Learning how to give inward so we can give to others.

  • The importance of having a daily checklist that is about self-care and giving inwardly.

In Orly's Voice:

“Kindness has the power to go from one person to another seamlessly and creates a ripple effect.”

“When dialogue happens, connectivity takes place and change ensues.”

“When we lose that faith, coming back to finding it within ourselves insures that no one will ever be able to take it from you again.”

“The more I gave, the more the pieces of me began to heal.”

“Giving helped me to see myself again.”

“We need to allow ourselves to feel the pain.”

“Kindness is not an action, it's a way of life.”

Holly Worton is an author, podcaster, and business mindset coach for women
entrepreneurs. She works with women who are feeling stuck and frustrated with their
business because they're struggling to fully step into their highest potential as
entrepreneurs. Holly helps them release their fear of visibility, set aligned prices for their
products and services, and take easy inspired action to grow their business.

It's usually not lack of business or marketing knowledge that holds us back in business.
That's all easy to learn. It's our mindset that stops us from creating the business we want. If
you've ever struggled with self confidence, self esteem, or even setting prices that reflect
your true value, Holly can help. There's a fast and easy way to move past the fears, blocks,
and limiting beliefs toward your vision of your ideal business.

Take the first step toward having a steady stream of your ideal clients by signing up for her
free Unlock Your Client Blocks Kit, or sign up for a free discovery session to get clear on
which things are getting in the way of a steady stream of clients in your business.

Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

  • What we mean when we talk about mindset.

  • The difference between mindset and intuition.

  • The importance of decluttering our mind and how to do that. Here's a link to my 5 Days of Journaling Program with the Clearing Space exercise: www.kellycovert.com/journal

  • The importance of taking action on what your inner voice is telling you to do.

  • How to be okay with not knowing what the next step in the plan is.

  • How the feelings of yearning can lead us to where we are supposed to go.

  • Holly shares her story of creating a new process to use with her clients and the trust and courage that was involved.

  • Why we need to own our worthiness in order to be able to do our soul work.

  • What Holly learned on her silent retreat. http://www.hollyworton.com/my-celery-is-good-enough-and-other-lessons-from-my-silent-retreat/

  • Why doing the hard work of clearing our limiting beliefs is worth it.

  • Holly shares her story of spending most of her life pretending to be someone she wasn't so she could fit in, and how that led her to connect with her inner voice.

  • How to return to who we truly are.

  • The importance of having a support crew in your life.

  • Here's a link to my interview on Holly's podcast: http://www.hollyworton.com/210/

     

In Holly's Voice:

“Give yourself permission to feel that uncomfortable icky feeling, so you can then open yourself up to the work that needs to be done.

“The most important work I've done in my life is helping myself being connected to and hearing my inner voice.”

“Start letting go of the things that don't serve you and don't make you happy, and start focusing on the things that do.”

“The more you guide yourself by the inner compass of your feelings, the more you get back on track.”

In Her Voice Ep. #26: Shirley Melis on Transforming Through Grief

Shirley Melis is a longtime business writer, travel writer, and newspaper columnist who traveled the world interviewing everyone from busboys to heads of international organizations before launching a career in public relations in Washington, D.C. With Banged-Up Heart, she now takes her writing in a new direction, delving deeply into her own personal story of finding love late, losing it early, and discovering the strength to choose to love again. It is a fascinating odyssey, a journey both creative and erotic as Shirley and John work lovingly together to blend their dreams—until a mysterious bump on his forehead starts them on a tragic struggle against the dark hand of fate.

A graduate of Vassar, Shirley Melis has created an intimate memoir bearing eloquent witness to the kind of wild trust that can grow in the heart of an ordinary woman thrust into circumstances that few others must face. Now retired, she lives in Galisteo, New Mexico.

Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

  • Her story of discovering her inner voice as she worked through her deep grief of losing her husband.

  • The concept of “unpacking” our feelings and emotions around a circumstance.

  • How writing takes us to a deeper understanding of who we are.

  • The concept of Depth Journaling by Barclay Braden

  • Writing Down The Bones by Natalie Goldberg

  • The difference between getting over grief and going through grief.

  • How to find gratitude in your grief, and how to learn what it is offering to teach us.

In Shirley's Voice:

“There's a connection that seems to unlock the consciousness when pen is in hand.”

“I don't want to go through life without an awareness of what I'm doing.”

“Grief tests our courage to go on.”

“I think some risks are worth taking.”

Most importantly, Andrea loves singing kirtan (musical meditation) as much as humanly possible and is hopelessly addicted to learning new things and passing them on!

Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

Through writing, podcasting and birth support, Mellisa Reeves' goal is to provide connection and support for women and their experiences of motherhood, creating space for issues such as birth choices, loss, anxiety & career balance.  She believes in the innate intuition that all women possess and in helping mothers truly own and tell their stories. She is the co-host of the podcast, Motherbirth.

Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

  • Her transformation from someone who was completely disconnected from her intuition to a woman who understands just how deep her feminine power lies.

  • Finding the willingness to become who you want to be.

  • How a loss can be the catalyst to pull yourself into a new place of being.

  • How her son helped her begin to listen to her inner voice.

In Melissa's Voice:

“Part of the journey of motherhood is realizing the stakes aren't as high as we think they are.”

“If you want something different you have to do something different.”

“Put the connection with your child first.”

“As women we don't believe that our own needs are legitimate, and that has to change.”

Being in the zone, being fully present without judgment and at the same time finding ease, going with the flow.

In Her Voice Ep. 18: Speak Your Truth with Kate D. Mahoney

Kate D. Mahoney is a miracle and she wants you to know you are, too. Even if that’s not what you’d call it. 

She’s named after the feisty, independent character in William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, and was born in Washington, D.C., to educators and activists. Sporting purple feet pajamas as a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz, Kate didn’t know her role of a lifetime would ultimately be that of just being herself.

Kate spent her formative years in Alexandria, Virginia, and then the Republic of Ireland. While on summer vacation in her parent’s birthplace of Central New York, she was diagnosed with stage four germ cell ovarian cancer and later experienced multi system organ failure. She was 14.

International and nondenominational prayer requests were directed to a deceased nun by the name of Mother Marianne Cope. Kate’s discharge papers state her recovery from the organ failure could not be explained medically. Her case led to the canonization of Mother Cope, and an adventure that was as sacred as it was side-splittingly funny to Vatican City.

Kate holds a B.A. in drama from Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, as well as certificates from iO Chicago and Second City. She is an international speaker and activist who travels the globe to share honest and humorous anecdotes from her life as patient and caregiver.

Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

  • Her journey through becoming a “miracle” and what that taught her about who she really is.

  • How to find and use your voice to speak for those who can't

  • The balance of taking care of others and taking care of ourselves and how we need both as women

  • The difference between doing and being.

  • Kate's practices of staying grounded in her breath to remember the importance of letting go of all the things she needs to do.

  • The importance of asking for support and having accountability built into your day.

  • How to maintain perspective in regards to our health.

  • The freedom that comes with realizing we don't have to fit into just one mold.

In Kate's Voice:

“There's a perception that a lot of women have that they convince themselves their voice doesn't matter.”

“There's taking care of others and taking care of ourselves, and we can't have one without the other and have a sustainable life.”

“We discount our happiness because we think we have to be do-ers and not be-ers.”

“You're not these separate fragments, but your body, mind and heart are all together.”

“I'm the one who sets the tone for the day.”

“I alone can give myself permission.”

“Who cares if what you do doesn't look like what your friend does?”

  • Physical training vs. emotional and mental training

  • Using visualization to help you achieve your goals.

  • The “What If” scenario practice

  • The uprising of women seeking out alternative ways to share their voice.

In Sarah's Voice:

“It's not just about achieving the goal, it's about what you learn along the way.”

“When you aren't doing something you are passionate about, there is a disconnect internally.”

“I got tired of having to be someone I'm not.”

“The only person I can be is me.”

“If you can be vulnerable, it's an incredibly powerful place to get to.”

“The reason you are here is because of the decisions you have made.”
