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.

Sanyika “The Firestarter” Street is a storyteller, leadership mentor and executive coach whose platform, “The All-In Method,” empowers men to live a life of alignment and integrity to become better husbands, fathers and leaders.  What does it mean to you to be “all in” on something? When Sanyika hadn’t made the grades or connections to earn an athletic scholarship by the end of high school, he changed his trajectory. And with the help of a coach who showed him a greater possibility in himself, Sanyika went "all in" to achieve his dream of playing on a division one college basketball team.  So, how did he end up as an actor and songwriter in what he calls a “rock bottom sandwich” just a few years later? Tune in to hear Sanyika’s story of how a seemingly positive return to his artistic leanings after college landed him in LA with two DUI’s, a girlfriend who was paying his bills, and a 1992 BMW 325i that was playing a detrimental role in his self-worth. Learn about the unlikely community of men Sanyika found during that rock bottom who helped transform his life by holding him accountable, and inspiring him to step into his full potential. Plus, hear how all of Sanyika's ups and downs, and ins and outs, served to birth his current mission to empower 1 million to go all in on their body, their business and their being to live the best version of themselves they can be.

#86: From The Dumbest Decision to Global Cultural Change Agent | Zarinah El-Amin
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. Plus, you’ll hear how she’s using it all to serve her purpose today.
