68: Isabel Draughon on Tap Into Your Inner Strength and Reclaim Your Power

The strength of a man is measured by how much weight he can lift, yet the strength of a woman is measured by how much emotional pain she can endure.

– Isabel Draughon

Tap Into Your Inner Strength and Reclaim Your Power with Isabel Draughon

On Today’s Podcast

This week I sit down with Isabel Draughon. Isabel Draughon is a mother, wife, and entrepreneur who is a Life Transformation/ Mental Fitness Coach and Spiritual Mentor. She is also a Podcast host, Speaker, yoga instructor, and two-time marathon runner. The founder of Loud Whisper Reignite Your Voice and Co-Founder of VizX Design Studios. She specializes in helping Entrepreneurial women who, despite their success, have lost connection with the core of their being and intuition. Isabel empowers them to find and align with their voice and Soul. She grew up surrounded by hardworking and resilient women who worked hard to take care of their families and, sadly, put their needs on the back burner. So naturally, as a young girl, she became what she saw, the spirit of survival with a loud whisper. But, unfortunately, she didn’t have a voice, with no peace, joy, or freedom. So, in the end, her own needs became neglected, leaving her feeling empty inside. She is passionate about helping women find their voice and connect to their feminine energy. To live a fulfilled life with peace, joy, and the freedom to create the life she desires.

22: Sofia Husnain on Rebirth

REBIRTH with Sofia Husnain

On Today’s Podcast

This week I sit down with Sofia Husnain. Sofia’s story began in the arms of a single mother in a country thousands of miles away from where women are anything but equal partners in a male dominant society. At the age of 11, she moved to the United States with her family to find her American dream, which also came at a difficult price.

From abandonment by her father to living with a chronic lifelong illness and learning to find, accept and love her true identity, Sofia’s story is about self-discovery through the shadows of our past and the rebirthing that we experience through traumatic and extremely difficult challenges that we face that forever change us.

Sofia is a Registered Nurse, holistic wellness educator, author, founder, and managing director at Woman Disrupted.

19: Regina Young on Standing in My Own Power

Sometimes women can be alone in mid-life, and it shouldn’t be that way. Women should be in community in mid-life. – Regina Young

Meet Regina Young

Regina Young has always charted her own journey in life and believed standing in your own power makes you unstoppable. Regina has a degree from the Art and Fashion Institute of Philadelphia in Fashion. She is a podcaster, plus-size model, personal branding image consultant, and speaker. She can be heard on Teatime Midlife Edition podcast, a weekly teacup conversation about midlife victories, struggles, and how you’re going to live your best life now in the community.

Show Notes

Please tell our audience about your journey.

At one point, I had to make a bunch of choices. I could do the nine to five, or I could live my dream and take chances. I chose to do both. I didn’t even choose to do one or the other. I said I could have it all; why not? I started modeling or going on the journey for modeling. That was one thing. And then, at one point, I became a Ford Model. That was one of the journeys that I took. Another journey that I took was around podcasting. I got to the place in mid-life where I was like, is this all there is? Is there anything else? Or can I create something? The pandemic opened up an opportunity to be heard and seen in mid-life. And that’s how I started with the podcast, Teatime Midlife Edition.

Can you tell us what Teatime Midlife Edition podcast is all about?

It is for women in midlife. Sometimes women can be alone in midlife. It shouldn’t be that way. Women should be in a community in mid-life, and it is a teacup conversation. It takes about 20 minutes, once a week, for the first season. The second season may look a little different, but we talk about the struggles, the victories, all kinds of things. In a community, supporting one another is a key to feeling fulfilled and having a good sense of life. Feeling like life is working because you have someone you can rely on and share your victories with. That’s what it’s about.

How do you overcome the challenges of having difficult conversations over the airwaves?

If I want to make a difference in the world, I have to be an example. If I’m going to be vulnerable, then I assert that other people will be vulnerable. I can’t ask one to do more than what I’m willing to do. Unfortunately, my father just passed away, and I shared the different phases of grief. Being open and honest like that. I’m not under the illusion that I’m the only one going through it. I feel like if I make it okay for me to share myself, maybe you’ll be okay with sharing yourself.

What can you say to the mid-lifers listening right now to pour into them?

I do stand in the quote, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.” You’re going to have to participate in your own rescue. That is the real deal. Believe that this too shall pass. Those are the three things that I use to move forward in any challenging situation. It’s important to be in a community. You have someone who’s the support that can help prop you up if necessary. Most of all, someone to hold your hand or comfort you when it’s down and say it’s going to be okay. In a community, you will get everything you need because there’s someone who’s already been through it, going through it, or missed it. But the reality is you’ll get everything you need in a community.

I heard you have some great things coming up that you’re putting together. Could you tell us a little bit about that?

I am starting a curriculum for women in mid-life. It’s helpful in midlife because there’s a point where you get into a fashion rut. There’s an opportunity to rebrand yourself or reinvent yourself in your image. And my course is called Model Perfect Woman. Every woman is model-perfect with style. I want to reach a lot of women, where they get to reinvent themselves and see their image newly. It’s not about trying something old and making it new. It’s about authentically being yourself. Having your image represent you from your core authentic self. You’ve always wanted to do it. You couldn’t see how. People get stuck in past images. They get into a fashion rut. They loved themselves 10 years ago, and they looked fabulous. Everything was perfect. And now look, it’s mid-life, and they don’t know what’s next and how to bridge from 10 years ago.

If you were to describe yourself with three different words, what would those three words be?

Persisted. Fun. Loving.

What is your all-time favorite business look?

I love a simple blazer jacket and a simple dress. It could be zip up the back, knee-length. I do like a little black dress or a patterned dress with a jacket. That’s a simple business look.

What is your all-time favorite business book?

“Who Moved My Cheese?” By Dr. Spencer Johnson and “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.
