Certified in emotional intelligence and family constellation work, with formal training in mindfulness practice, Camille has synthesized these modalities into a blended approach providing a resource-rich, individualized framework for her clients. Highlights * Camille explains what family constellation work is and how families benefit. * Family constellation work takes the judgement piece out of the family system. * Emotional Intelligence (EQ) changes throughout our life. It’s a set of skills that we can learn and practice. * Emotional literacy is about how we label our emotions. * Labelling your emotions alone helps calm the amygdala. * You can use a feelings list to help learn about emotions. * The call for this millennium is to go within. * “I saw my own wounding when I got into management.” * 83% of nurses are children of alcoholics. * Empathy levels are declining globally. * Without a program for developing self-awareness, our wounds tend to stay in the shadows. * 60% of physicians are first-born children of alcoholics. * Healthcare is burning out many people within the field. * Patients need to become partners with their healthcare providers. * If we don’t know who we are, how can we be our own advocate? * Mindfulness and being able to focus in the moment forms a foundation of emotional intelligence. * It’s important that we feel our feelings without judgement. * If you just sit with your feelings with a loving presence, the feeling will change. * If you write down 25 things that you are grateful for, it changes your brain. * Business is about relationships. If we learn how to be in relationship, we will have more success. * EQ is the best indicator of business success - Harvard Business Review.

It’s about connection. * Today, everyone is shouting for the same dollars. * Making money online is easier if you have a team of people helping you. * You can make money online if you are willing to spend the same amount of time you would for an offline business. * Your online business is like a child you are creating and nurturing, it just happens to be electronic. * The claims that you can make money quickly may be true occasionally, but not very often. * You have to spend time researching your potential market. Do people really want what you’re offering? * Share useful information on Twitter and interact with others. * The online market is constantly changing. * Selling online is the same as the mail order business. * Not everything you try will work out. * You need someone to talk to who has long-term experience, you can trust, and who will give you good advice.

She fell in love with storytelling in her 20s. * “I consider myself a story coach who gets people into their own authentic stories.” * First, it’s about freeing your voice, then figuring out what you want to say. * We are always looking to speak into the unspeakable. * It’s about creating a safe and sacred space for exploration and risk. * “I allow myself to be vulnerable and transparent.” * How her work as a story facilitator can help a business person. * When you share your story, there’s something organic that happens with the sales process. * A strong TED talk, starts with story that is married to a mission and vision. * We talk about the current promoting of story for business and how her work, which comes from a creative space, offers more depth. * People who are jumping onto the story bandwagon are missing a depth of knowledge and understanding. * There can be a benefit with story on many levels. Tanya’s work Is meant to be transformative. * It’s important that entrepreneurs define their brand story. * When people’s hearts get open, they are more able to accept new information. * Facebook is a place where people are telling the story of their lives and is opening people to sharing their stories. * How sharing stories on Facebook has helped her get many clients. * Authenticity binds us to each other. * Tanya has had her business for 16 years and has been online since 2000.

I heard this on Ray Edwards Podcast  (http://rayedwards.com) Highlights from Today’s Show: In the 1970’s I began to ask the question, if it’s true that we create our own reality, how do we do this? I’ve come to believe that the outcomes of our life stories are the result of our habitual thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors, many of which develop in early childhood. Your emotions act as a bridge between your internal and external worlds. (http://prosperityplace.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Emotion-figure-7-1-300x73.gif) Since we deal with money on a daily basis, it’s useful to look at money when considering this theory, especially if you understand that money is a symbol of relationships and how you deal with money is how you de al with relationships with yourself and others. When you realize this, you’ll realize that you can’t run out of money, you can only run out of people. I also explain why you can stop asking, “Why does this happen to me?” Suggestions are given for experiencing your money feelings and how doing this can lead to new outcomes. and the three-step method for changing habitual emotions is introduced.  (Recognize, Release, Replace.) Suggested Action: Be aware of the kinesthetic experience in your body when dealing with money. These experiences are your money feelings.
