In this episode, guest Theresa Chaze, who is a writer, director, producer, and editor, with several credits to her name talks about her unscripted TV series, Horses and Heroes, which combines highly effective Peer Support Therapy with Equine Therapy. Unlike most in the genre, it will focus on healing and positive growth rather than endorsing bad behavior. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions to their physical and emotional challenges. Theresa talks about how she’s supporting the veterans of the United States military who have served and how they work together to find new coping skills for their physical and emotional challenges. The emphasis will be on the veterans because they are people, they are not disposable parts of the war machine. She shares how veterans “need permission to seek help” as so many don’t because they think the ramifications will hurt their careers. “You’ve got this reputation of being tough guys and tough guys just sucked it up.” Theresa also has two other films that may also pique your interest: Never Can Say Good-bye tells the parallel storylines of the past and the present as the reincarnated souls are forced to decide between forgiveness and seeking the revenge they were denied in the past. Chalice Island is a Gothic Horror, which is comparable to the original Dark Shadows TV series. Jacqueline’s capacity to love is only exceeded by her need for vengeance after she finds her mother raped and murdered. When a source of evil offers both her and her brother the means to gain revenge, she enthusiastically embraces the dark arts. https://cproduction5.wixsite.com/cosmos-productions-
Topping the second half of the show, returning financial expert and Founding President & CEO of Brad Williams Financial Services, LLC, guest Brad Williams, has over 25 years of experience and addressing financial concerns of retirees and business owners. He has very strong communication skills, is very personable, and he likes to focus on the clients’ concerns, and address what is important to them. On the show, we talk about how right now, “money stress,” is what a lot of people are losing sleep over and the possible causation. For example, our fast-paced society and being always connected digitally allows easy accessibility to consumer goods and constant marketing tactics that spur people to “act now,” without really paying too much attention to “how much it is going to cost.” The debt stacks ups quickly and only later the consumer realizes they may have overextended themselves.
Brad talks about how everything should be all about return on investment and that might only be return on investment for your own relaxation. You’ are going to spend money or take the time off to recharge, that’s good, that’s what you should do, but it’s also about things like college and college is one of those big expenses that people stress over. Brad suggests one of the best things is to sit down and write out the general life plan you hope to accomplish at the end of your life, write yourself a narrative on what you would like people to say about you what did, then figure out over the next five years what you want, such as a new car, a house, a trip to Europe, a hundred thousand in the bank, or some goal, and then ask, “okay how do I do that?” If my five-year goal is to save a hundred thousand dollars, then not counting interest, that means I need to save twenty thousand dollars a year, is that practical? There is a lot more! Tune in and find out how to take off some of the financial stress that you may be facing.
