Ask Dr. Bunny. Starting another career in your 70’s? Hazel Palache, guest.

Hazel Palache, Hypnotherapist and Certified Results Coach, joins Dr. Bunny to share her story of how and why she started another business in her 70’s! Hazel is a true example of inspiration!

About Hazel Palache:
I’m a woman entrepreneur, 74 years old, going on 30, with a great sense of humor and, 25 years experience in the field of personal, spiritual and professional development.  I’m a certified master clinical hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner, stress management counselor and a certified coach.  I’m also a Mom, Sister and Friend.  I know your time is valuable and although I don’t want to give you a long winded bio,  it wouldn’t be fair to you if I didn’t share something about who I am:

I was born into a very traditional family in London, UK during world war two.  My Father was a compulsive gambler and rage-aholic and my Mother was a battered wife. I had a sister 3 years younger and as children we lived lives of fear and negativity and we certainly didn’t disobey our parents.   As girls we were expected to get married and procreate, so college wasn’t even an option for either of us.   At 19 I got married, had two children and my name became wife and mother!
My husband and I with our two children moved to the US in 1979.  At that time I was 37.  After living here for six years I was beginning to discover things about myself that had been lying dormant for all those years. One of the things I realized was that I didn’t say ‘Yes’ to myself only to other people and, the word No wasn’t part of my vocabulary.   At the age of 42 having been married for 25 years I filed for divorce.

I Discovered My Own Strength

It’s amazing what you can do when you are highly motivated.  That was the scariest thing I had ever done but it led me to finding strengths I didn’t know I had.

I discovered I was an entrepreneur at heart.    I was very fascinated with how the mind actually works.   With my earlier training in psychology,  I went to school at night and after a year of training, in 1990 I received my certification as a Master Clinical Hypnotherapist.    Whether they were in the entertainment industry or not, or they couldn’t maintain healthy relationships, were in pain because of their childhood, their marriage was having a problem or because they wanted to change a behavior, I had the honor of helping many dozens of people to overcome fears, doubts, negative mind chatter and much more.   My practice was successful, I loved my clients and every day was a blessing.

Life sometimes gets in the way!  In 1991 a driver jumped a red light and my car was totaled.  Although I didn’t know it at the time, that accident was going to impact my health in different ways for the rest of my life!   I was left with 3 herniated cervical discs that created terrible daily migraine headaches. In 1994 I was diagnosed with Fybromialgia.   I gradually realized that working in my practice was not going to be possible for my health, plus I wouldn’t be doing clients any favors if I couldn’t concentrate fully on their needs.  I wanted to stay in the personal development field but had to find another avenue.
In 1996 coaching was barely in existence but, after doing some research I knew that if I got certified as a coach I could work with clients by phone, which was an answer to my prayers.  This would also allow me to help women nationally and internationally.   In 1997 I received my coaching certification and while I was closing my private practice I started working with coaching clients on the phone.  I was re-inventing myself again by allowing an old door to close! I opened a new one and found the key to continuing to do what I loved.

Ask Dr. Bunny. What is a higher level of doing business? Darrell Gooden, guest.

Darrell GoodenDarrell Gooden, Certified Adizes Associate with the Adizes Institute, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss how he helps businesses acheive a higher level of doing business, and so much more! Darrell explains the profoundly different methodology of the Adizes Institute and how it can help small, medium and large businesses. An extremely informative interview!

About Adizes Institute:
Adizes enables ordinary people to transform the management of their organizations and produce extraordinary, sustainable results. Our work with all clients is guided by a strong belief in these values:
Mutual Trust & Respect
We believe that a strong and pervasive culture of mutual trust and mutal respect is what makes a business strong and allows it to become a dominant competitor over the long term. This kind of culture is what underlies the ability to consistently WOW customers, attract and retain exceptional talent, and generate superior financial returns. The reason is simple; when employees really know how to work well together and harness their conflicts constructively, minimal energy is wasted on infighting and internal politics, which allows them to devote maximum energy to competing in the marketplace. This kind of culture is an organization’s greatest asset. It is what customers are really buying, and the competitive advantage that is the most difficult to copy.

Collaborative Change
We believe that in every organization, in every market, in every country of the world, coping with a high rate of change in a complex and uncertain world is leadership’s #1 challenge. The ability to change faster, better and more economically than competitors is therefore the leading predictor of any organization’s long term success. Developing this capability to change is something best done “with” not “to” an organization. Trying to change people is hard. Instead, we focus on changing the environment; which unleashes the talents and productivity of people.

Constructive Conflict
We believe that meaningful change necessarily creates conflict. Harnessing conflict constructively creates the nuclear energy that drives superior performance.

Being Customer Driven
We believe that the primary purpose of every organization is to WOW customers profitably and deliver compelling value to them. Some organizations believe that making money is their primary purpose, which is a confusion of ends and means.

Complementary Teams
We believe that none of us is as smart as all of us. Close-knit complementary teams who work well together are the ultimate competitive weapon.

Decisive Leadership
We believe that the purpose of teamwork is to help leaders make better decisions than they would on their own.Management-by-committee or consensus decision making is not how decisions are made in high-performing organizations.

Simplicity
Transformation may not be easy, but we believe it must be simple. If people don’t understand something, they can’t implement it.

Shared Rewards
We believe that superior long term performance is realized by tying the achievement of results to shared monetary and non-monetary rewards.
By practicing these values, Adizes enables ordinary people to change the culture of their organization and produce extraordinary and sustainable results.

Greg Etherton

Greg Etherton joins Dr. Bunny for Part 2 of his fun & inspiring interview. In this segment they discuss how he got to the Win/Win in his life – and how you can, too! It is obvious that Greg has a zest for life!  It’s so much fun to hear about his travels and how he inspires others through his teachings! This is an interview you don’t want to miss!

About Greg’s book “Pay Yourself First – Become RICH with TIME & MONEY”: Greg’s claim to fame is that from 22 – 39 when he did work, he took on odd jobs for only half the year.
The other half was spent studying language, cultures and personal development by discovering foreign countries.
He mastered MONEY and TIME, something we rarely get to embrace together!

After over five years of what he calls in the book, “Retirement Practice” (spending his time doing everything he has ever dreamed of and more) Greg is now coming out to teach others how they can experience such “luxury” in their life thanks to his book “Pay Yourself First” ~Become RICH with Time & Money.

“It does not matter what you are doing right now to trade your TIME for MONEY, you can make a couple of minor changes to have a better and more confident future enjoying more of both as you go.

MONEY is not everything! But the lack of it can keep you from enjoying the important stuff like the affairs of the heart, the treasures of the Spirit or the other interests that may fill your precious TIME.

MONEY problems cause too much stress and keep a lot of people from enjoying the rest. If you are simply surviving payday to payday, the simple solutions in this book will help immensely to enhance your quality of life and even to enjoy more TIME. If you are not afraid of success, start now! You deserve it!  Purchase “Pay Yourself First” on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Yourself-First-Become-RICH-MONEY-ebook/dp/B005EN77HW

About Greg’s book “Protonic Speaking – Powerfully Express Your Potential”: Have you ever heard of a “Positive Mental Cleanse”? For whatever reason you choose to wash you body – like cleaning, refreshing and invigorating – it’s just as reasonable to “bathe your brain”. This intuitively lucid little book is written in the affirmatively positive to inspire and promote a “Mental Cleanse”. “Protonic Speaking” teaches you how to express your words, images and thoughts in the most precise, positive way to get exactly what you truly desire.  Purchase “Protonic Speaking – Powerfully Express Your Potential” on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Protonic-Speaking-Powerfully-Express-Potential-ebook/dp/B006OTBCY4#navbar
