Surviving and Thriving after Trauma with Anna Runkle The Crappy Childhood Fairy
Nov 9 2021
Surviving and Thriving after Trauma with Anna Runkle The Crappy Childhood Fairy
This week’s episode features Anna Runkle, also known as The Crappy Childhood Fairy. It is full of information about Complex PTSD (also known as C-PSTD) and the techniques you can use to calm your symptoms. Learn these techniques so that you can heal, have meaningful relationships and BE successful by BE-ing yourself. Complex PTSD is the result of repeatedly experiencing traumatic events, such as violence, neglect, or abuse. Childhood PTSD (the largest subset of C-PSTD) is often more severe because it occurs during the formative years of childhood. Healing from Complex PTSD or childhood trauma is a process but feeling better does not have to wait! In this episode we discuss the tools and strategies that Anna learned and began teaching her followers, subscribers, and clients. If you or someone you know has complex PTSD, you know how difficult it can be to cope when you get triggered. In this episode, Anna Runkle and I discuss the techniques that she uses to reregulate, by unpacking the thoughts that often spin out of control. My healing was not the result of one big AH-HA moment. It is a journey that is often painful and difficult. When I look back, I can't believe I have made it this far. However, I couldn't have done it without support. To find that support I began with forming healthy relationships (something that I am still working on). We also discuss the difficulties that people with PTSD often have with interpersonal relationships, the importance of feeling connected, and the techniques that will assist you in forming meaningful relationships. Healing is not just about feeling better. It is about feeling better so that you can find your gifts and your purpose. Anna and I found our healing in the form of helping others through sharing our stories and facilitating their healing journey with information and tools for success. You deserve to heal. You deserve to make your dreams come true.

How to Use Pinterest for Podcast, Blog and Business Growth
Pinterest is hands down the most powerful social media platform for content creators and small business owners.  This week’s episode is packed with tips and strategies to help you grow your business or your brand by using this free tool. Our guest, Mackenzie Armstrong, a Pinterest Strategist and Manager, will delve into why you should use Pinterest for your brand or business and how to make the most out of this robust tool. With online marketing, there’s a debate raging among experts over which strategy is best to grow your business. Would SEO or social media marketing be the better option? Often, businesses will hire an SEO expert or agency to increase their visibility in the search engines without even thinking about social media and the traffic that it can bring to their business. Similarly, there are those who focus their attention entirely on building a social media following without spending any time on SEO. With Pinterest you don’t have to choose. In this episode we learn how and when to use the different types of Pinterest pins and how to take advantage of the SEO and searchability of Pinterest to increase your reach, drive traffic to your content, and grow your business. So, while SEO and social media marketing are different, they each help the other and the end goal of both is the same - to help increase traffic to your website, products, or services.

We learn how to safely hold space for ourselves as parents while allowing our kids and others to be themselves. We learn the importance of making decisions from a place of trust and self-belief instead of fear and how to teach the kids the same. You will learn about a powerful parenting model that completely turns everything around and leads to not only becoming a better parent but to living a life that is authentically yours.
