Get F***ing Real

Lisa Cherney

It’s confession time! Super “successful” people have super sh***y moments. These moments are often the fire starter for a life and business that is more on purpose than ever before. These are “GFR Moments” and they are the necessary grit for the mission-driven entrepreneur. Hear from savvy successful business owners who are ready to share their darkest (and sometimes embarrassing) turning point stories. Why? So you are inspired to keep going in spite of the crap trying to keep you down. You have a mission. People you are supposed to help. The more you get f***ing real, the more impact (and money) you will make. So, are you ready to GFR?!

#90: Being A Caregiver to Mom (& Myself) Featuring GFR Commandment #4
It’s the last GFR Show of 2021, and Lisa’s here to share why—despite living through the Covid crucible of 2020—this has been one of the most transformational years of her life.  From embarking on a journey around unconscious racial bias, to her mother’s 9-month battle with a cancer recurrence, to revisiting a 30-year struggle with food and body image she was sure she’d healed years ago (Ep. 85 - F*ck Dieting! This is Me!), Lisa leaned into her lessons and uncovered a stronger, even more unapologetic version of herself. The week before Ep. 85 aired, Lisa’s mom Phyllis was in a terrible car accident that nearly left her quadriplegic, which in turn completely rocked Lisa’s world. That’s when the real transformation started. In this episode you'll learn about Phyllis’s grueling road to recovery, and find out 5 major lessons Lisa’s learned as she took on her new role as caregiver for her mom. Lisa also confesses the ways her faith in the GFR Commandments has been tested these last couple months, in particular GFR 12C #4: Trust that struggle serves your mission.  Listen in to hear a promising update about how Phyllis is doing at the time of recording, and learn what self-care actions Lisa's taking for herself (and in turn, for her business, and the GFR Show) as she continues to care for her mom.

Zarinah El-Amin is an award-winning anthropologist, author and TEDx speaker whose company, Book Power Publishing, revolves around helping clients create cultural change through books and global experiences.  What is the dumbest decision you've ever made in your life? Zarinah opens up about the “dumbest decision” she ever made, and the transformational lesson she learned when she repressed her true nature to make her marriage work. Being raised a Muslim, Zarinah was surrounded by family friends from many cultures, but as a student in Detroit and later at Howard University, she wasn’t exposed to a lot of different people. Find out what “clicked” that made her know she was a “person of the world.” And how that led to eye-opening experiences like living in Egypt and dating someone in a different caste, and revitalizing orphan programs in Sierra Leone. You’ll also hear the lessons she learned in her 40th year—a spiritual year of revelations for many Muslims—which came in a series of GFR moments including losing her mom, divorcing her husband of 14 years, and moving in with her father after his stage 4 cancer diagnosis.

#84: From Traumatic Childhood Tornado to Global Girl Power Goddess | Vivian Glyck
Vivian Glyck is a thought leader in global issues facing adolescent girls and women, and founder of Just Like My Child Foundation.  Do you believe everything happens for a reason? Vivian’s passion for empowering young girls to find their voice and protect their bodies was born out of her own traumatic sexual and emotional abuse as a child. Listen for her story of growing up as the immigrant child of Holocaust survivors in NYC’s Spanish Harlem, and hear intimate details about the origin story of her foundation that she doesn’t usually share when talking about her work.  You’ll also hear two huge GFR Moments from Vivian’s past. One when she finally took a stand against her abuser, and another later in life when after a series of miscarriages, she had a mystical experience in Greece with Artemis/Diana (a.k.a. Wonder Woman), the goddess of chastity and childbirth, that turned into a global mission that has her foundation on track to help one million adolescent girls around the world.  ResourcesGrab Vivian’s gift: https://www.justlikemychild.org/vivians-book/ (How to Change the World While You Work ) The 12 GFR Commandments - https://gfr.life/12c (download your own copy now) https://gfr.life/squad (Join the GFR Squad) - get started for just 20 Bucks!
