Description

This is a space, the same space I have always wanted to hold for my own mother when I was a 6-year old little girl watching her go through domestic violence. Now, I get to pay it forward and hold space for Moms all across the globe to get their stories told.

It started as a need to gather data and learn from other Motherhustlers for a course I was working on to help Mom Entrepreneurs except it began to heal me from my childhood trauma. I began to dig deeper into my childhood and started remembering a lot of details that's been buried deep down in my subconscious cemetery.

Lisa Waknin Murphy is a fierce woman who has overcome adversity her entire life. She’s taken these life challenges and turned them into something that is making a real difference. Her personal journey and her neverending hard work advocating for her own daughter’s recovery led her to create Silver Sands Recovery, a substance abuse treatment facility that is turning around the lives of addicts and their families by helping them in their fight against the Opioid Emergency in America. She has helped many people and their families get through the pain and hopelessness of addiction. She is known as “Mother of Recovery” because of how she looks out for everyone in her program.Lisa hailed from New York City where she started her fashion career at a very young age working for top fashion designers.  She personally sold over $250 million dollars of dresses in her fashion career.  She was at the peak of her career, doing multi-million dollar deals with all the top fashion retailers.But as Forest Gump once said, “Life is like a box of chocolates –and you never know what you’re going to get.”  She discovered her daughter was an addict, and her world was turned upside down. The best years of her life professionally were the absolute worst years of her life personally.  That’s when the Brooklyn born mother took over. Through sleepless nights, to working all day, she saw her daughter slipping before her eyes and searched endlessly for help to get her daughter back. Her experience in recovery treatment is steeped from the perspective of a parent that wants to save her kids live. That's the difference in her approach to treating addiction... It’s what she calls “The Reality Model”.  And it’s working!Lisa's founding principle is to provide a superior foundation for Long Term Sobriety. As the parent of an addict, Lisa knows firsthand the devastation addiction. She works side by side families, helping them bring the bottom up to the addict thereby getting them into treatment. Her many years of trying to help her own daughter (who’s been sober since 2015) have led Lisa to immerse herself in the field of recovery.  She’s teamed up with medical and clinical experts and adding in her own true experiences from running a successful $60M company to being the parent of an addict has given this program a unique perspective. Parents from clients are quoted, "Finally I have someone I can speak with that knows what I went through and knows what these kids need. She's a voice of reason, has compassion and cares." Lisa always makes herself available to families in need.Learn about Lisa Waknin Murphy’s Silver Sands Recovery on www.silversandsrecovery.com or www.facebook.com/silversandsrecovery.com! Follow Host + Founder all across Social Media @kareenmills.

Happy Cinco de Mayo amigos!!!Today marks 19 years of me being an immigrant in the USA.Although it's been an amazing journey and yes, I still wouldn't trade it for anything...it's also been full of trials and tribulation.  Nothing killed me so it just made me become the badass that I am now.When you are faced with adversity dance with it, acknowledge the struggle but don't allow it to anchor you down to nothing.  Move.  Get in motion.  Write your goal even when they seem impossible because what I know now is that nothing is really impossible in this world.  Everything in this world we're created to match our abilities and potential as a human being.It was all designed by something higher to make it all work and sync.  So sync with it and go get it!I wish you well on this blessed Sunday and don't forget to write a review.Love you all, KMFollow Host + Founder all across Social Media @kareenmills.

Everyone has that make or break moment.That moment you either rise up or let life's choices and experiences consume you.Lance Essihos chose to rise and there was no ceiling.  Experiencing lows is a normal part of life just as living through the highs.  Lance began his life in a loving home in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with loving parents and family who worked hard who gave him everything he needed and then more.  Life was good until it wasn't.Lance had a passion for hockey.  He had been a star player who stood out with great talent; ahead of the other kids his age.  He played in all the top teams in world-class tournaments.  Slowly the competition caught up with him.  By the age of 20, the pressure led him to look for ways to stay competitive.  Steroids immediately ended his career and the devastation began.  That followed with dead-end jobs, drinking, drugs and partying into a state of depression and anxiety.  Lance continued the party across Europe and into Australia bar-tending in some of the best hotels and restaurants.  He discovered his love of people.  Socializing and taking care of them were part of his passion.  He was working hard all day, partying all night and still in a very dark place.Life was a blur and he was spiraling out of control.  That's when he got the call.  The call that his younger brother had taken his own life and he was the one who had to tell his dad.  This was rock bottom with a destructive cycle continuing at a new low.  It's in these rock bottom moments that the choice occurs and Lance chose to rise.  He made some positive choices and get clean and sober.  This allowed him to be sharp and clear-headed perpetuating the positives.  He met Tamara who supported him in every way possible.  Encouraging him to live his best life.  He pulled himself up and started living the life he had dreamed of, the life he was meant to live.Now, he's a positive influence on those who see adversity as a roadblock.  He started the University of Adversity Podcast to share, not only his story but stories just like his.  His hope is that when you are faced with a rock bottom choice you choose to rise as well.Learn more about Lance W.

Yoana came to the US with her husband in 2015 all the way from Romania, after winning the Green card lottery.She earned a BFA in Theater and Film from a very prestigious art school in Europe.She won the Green card Lottery, and it was not intentional! It happened after her husband Mihai showed his uncle how to apply for the Lottery using all of Yoana's information to practice on, as his uncle was not tech savvy.  The lottery was submitted and validated and shortly after they had the lottery winning docs on their kitchen table right as they were returning from their Honeymoon one beautiful summer day in 2004.  They immediately decided to take the crazy ride towards something that they never experienced before, with no fears or looking back, even though they had a brand new business in place and their married life was just starting. Also, Yoana was an already recognized actress, but the American dream won and they started preparing for the next move.In 2005, they landed straight to LA as her husband got a job offer from one of his dad's Romanian friends. LA was right on her alley as an actress, and she started working multiple gigs right away. She was Madonna's personal stand-in, worked with De Niro, Pacino, Christina Aquilera, Kumi Koda and many others. Being in LA was super cool at the time and her husband was doing really well in his job, and in 2007, she woke up one morning in their small 1 bedroom apt and told her hubby that her spirit wanted a baby.Anais was born on 2008- January 24th and pregnancy was complicated. But she is 11 years old today, healthy and amazing!Long story short, they ended up opening their own company in 2008 as brokers in transportation, their own firm that would become very successful, and Yoana stopped working as an actress as now she was a mom and the baby girl was her joy. All things were going well with the company and Anais growing beautifully but in 2010 and 2011  Yoana had 2 miscarriages- one at 3 months and other at 5 months.They were devastated and decided they wanted to go away for one year, thus renting their newly purchased home, packing their car and leaving to unknown grounds in their car, with some clothes and nothing else. It was the only way she was going to be able to go through the emotional challenges that they were facing.After 2 months, they ended up settling in the Raleigh area. Their brokerage company started losing money as the recession was just hitting their business as well and her husband decided to sell it.Being left with barely anything in their savings after purchasing a home in NC as well, she started studying real estate. Why real estate? Because as they were house hunting, she was so passionate that her agent gave her Gary Keller's "The Millionaire real estate agent" book and in 2012 Dec- I started working as a realtor and never moved back to LA. Yoana ended up becoming one of the Top brokers in the Raleigh area and years later in 2014 had her baby boy- Phoenix.Now she is building her business and growing as we speak.Learn more about Yoana on her Instagram at www.instagram.com/yoananin or her real estate firm at www.theprosperousagency.com!Follow Host + Founder all across Social Media @kareenmills.

Local networking is one of my favorite topics to discuss.  I've been doing it for the last 15 years.The first 4 years of my local networking journey was very sloppy.  But the last 4 have been fulfilling, meaningful and productive.  I've learned a thing or two about how to effectively network.  I tracked ratios and measure lag effects.  I've also measure the average time of when someone comes running to me for the solution I have educated them with when they didn't actually need the service.Because networking is effective I want to share some of my own secret sauce when it comes to local networking.Enjoy this episode and YES, local networking works magic!!Follow Host + Founder all across Social Media @kareenmills.
