Motherhood Talk Radio Celebrates Shining Service Worldwide

Shining Service Worldwide™ is an organization that supports women in the military community. Too often our females in service fall through the cracks and don’t get the attention they deserve, or more importantly, they need.  We want to help provide the resources they need.

Our program at Shining Service Worldwide™ is three fold:

* The Shining Beacon House™: A transitional home for veteran women and their children in New York City.  This home will  help deserving women veterans keep their families together safely as they work toward successful re-integration to the community.

* The Power of Ten Life Skills Program: A three-month mentoring program designed to help women veterans with jobs, health and financial management.

* Shining Service Makeovers: The beauty makeovers, provided at salons all over the country, help to reconnect a woman to her feminine power.

Shining Service Worldwide™ is proud to be a special project under the umbrella of our Fiscal Sponsor United Veterans Beacon House, Inc. – a not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to provided transitional housing to our nations veterans.

Today we welcome Linda Franklin of The Real Cougar Woman and Shining Service Worldwide.

 

I was born inToronto,Canadaand moved toNew York Cityin my early twenties. Never having finished college, I worked as a secretary because that’s all I thought I was qualified to do.

 

Wall Street in the late 70’s was not a woman friendly environment but I used that to my advantage. At age 28 I walked into my boss’s office and asked to work in the firm’s trading department. He said yes, but it came with a very big caveat. He said, “make it or be fired”. That challenge made me determined to succeed and I did. I was the first Canadian woman to own a seat on The New York Stock Exchange and then went on to manage this leading investment firm’s all male trading department.

 

Then at 48 my life changed drastically. Due to a number of circumstances I decided to leave Wall Street. That transition was a devastating blow to my psyche. I didn’t realize how much of my identity I had attached to my work. Retirement had never been a thought in my mind and I had no idea of how to cope with not having a good reason to get up in the morning.

 

When I could no longer stand wallowing in self pity, I made the conscious decision to take back my power and my life. Over the next two years, I went on a quest to find the answers that would help me with my relationships, maintaining a healthy body, looking fabulous, starting a new career and filling my spiritual reservoir. That journey, as tough as it was, turned out to be a blessing. It re-ignited my passion and allowed me to get excited about act two of my life.

 

Wanting to share what I had learned I started a blog. People ask me all the time why I decided to call it the The Real Cougar Woman.

 

It wasn’t planned – it just happened after I started to read a slew of unflattering articles about women over 40. They were being called “cougars”, and portrayed as predators on the prowl for young men. This negative spin upset me and I wanted to focus on the many virtues of real women not the media’s idea of women over 40. So I coined the term Real Cougar as my way of celebrating our age, our accomplishments, our independence, and our passion for life. I make it clear that a Real Cougar refuses to be defined by the age of the man she chooses to be with. Today, three years later I am still doing everything I can to make “cougar” a designer label that women all over the world are proud to wear.

My best selling book Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am! – The Real Cougar Guidebook for Life After 40 is helping me to expand my message. It has important information that every woman needs to read. I have also included inspiring stories from other fabulous females that truly warmed my heart. It let me know we are all together on this journey through time.

 

My newest initiative is “Shining Service Worldwide™”. This is my outreach to support women in the military. Like most worthwhile ventures it wasn’t planned. After receiving emails from military women who felt empowered after reading my blog – the path seemed obvious.

By Motherhood Incorporated, Motherhood Talk RadioMotherhood Talk Radio hosted by Sandra Beck and co-hosted by Robin Boyd welcome Patricia Mellor, CEO of the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains

This week marks the 100th anniversary of the dream of one woman hoping to make a difference in the world.  In March of 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered 18 girls to begin what we now know as the Girl Scouts of the USA.  She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. Almost immediately, Juliette’s dream for a girl-centered organization was realized. Today, Girl Scouts of the USA has a membership of over 3.2 million girls and adults in every residential zip code and in 90 countries. Nearly 60 million living women in the U.S. today are Girl Scout alumnae.

Motherhood Talk Radio, Motherhood Incorporated, Motherhood Company, Sandra Beck, Christy Holly, Robin Boyd, Doris Rivas Brekke, Patricia Mellor, Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of the USA, GSGWM, Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, Girl Scouting,Series contributor Robin Boyd joins Sandra to welcome Patricia Mellor, CEO of the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains Council, serving more than 15,000 girls in New Hampshire and Vermont and over 5,000 adult volunteer members.  Tricia, herself, was a girl member, achieving Girl Scouting’s highest honor, the Gold Award, followed by serving as an adult leader and camp councilor.  We could also spell that “counselor”, as Tricia is a member of the NH Bar Association and was a founding member of law firm, Merra, Kanakis, Creme & Mellor before becoming GSGWM’s chief executive officer.

Tricia embodies the Girl Scout mission, to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.  No one can attend an event led by Tricia and not leave it ready to ignite the world!  She advocates that changing the landscape for women’s leadership tomorrow means helping every girl reach her full potential today.  Every girl has a voice, and the Girl Scout’s innovative leadership programs help girls discover, connect and take action as they develop strong values, a social conscience, and a deep sense of self and their potential.

This year, in a move designed to focus national attention on girls and the issues they face, Girl Scouts of the USA has announced the launch of ToGetHerThere, the largest, boldest advocacy and fundraising cause dedicated to girls’ leadership in the nation’s history. The multi-year effort will seek to create balanced leadership — the equal representation of women in leadership positions in all sectors and levels of society — within one generation.

Tracy Costan of Motherhood Talk Radio

Tracey first started taking belly dance classes in 1998 at Anisa’sSchoolofDancein Sherman Oaks. From the very beginning, she fell in love with music, the costumes and the dance itself. With no prior formal dance training she trudged along trying to keep up with all the dance moves and the timing  but after a few months, I got the hang of it and was taking up to 3 classes a week.

She eventually started performing in restaurants and bellydance events throughoutSouthern Californiawhile always taking dance workshops at UCLA and at the dance school by visiting professional dancers from around the world. She danced even through her pregnancies and eventually moved out toActon5 years ago and began teaching classes out of her home. “

“I have been teaching enrichment classes at the local schools for 2 years now and enjoy teaching  this age group. I try to incorporate  a unique style of modern Egyptian, Arabic and Spanish dance moves into my choreographies. I like using a variety of music, dance moves and musicians for performances. My goal is to teach this very feminine, beautiful and difficult dance in a community that has never experienced this before,” Tracey shared recently.
