Ask Dr. Bunny. Beauty for the Soul Mentorship? Terese Santos, guest.

Terese Santos joins Dr. Bunny to discuss her incredible story. Terese left home at the age of 17, with less than $200. At the age of 23, Terese found herself needing to find a way to provide for her 2 young sons. Her 13-month old son, Shane, needed open-heart surgery, which incurred over $50,000 in medical bills, but Terese found a way to lift herself up, both emotionally and financially.

No matter where you are in your journey, it is important to know that stress blocks everything we want – it blocks prosperity, creativity and even blocks logic. When we’re stressed, we’re not making the kind of decisions we need to make.

Terese shares how she broke through that stress and now lives her dream life – and how she helps others to do the same.

She also tells us why the book “Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do!”, by Dr. Robert Schuller, is the title that still inspires her to this day.

Tune in for an uplifting, motivating & inspirational interview with a very special woman!

Ask Dr. Bunny. A White African American Latina? Simone Kvalheim, guest.

Simone Kvalheim joins Dr. Bunny for an extremely interesting conversation about her journey from Zimbabwe to America, and so much more!

Simone shares the story of how she originally started in medical school, but failed to be able to do an autopsy in the first year. This failure was very difficult for her, but it led her to search for a different career path.  She eventually signed up to become a trainee buyer for a chain of stores.

The interesting thing is that Simone hated sewing, but she was still drawn to being a buyer.  What really struck home for her was that, as a trainee buyer, she was able to travel all over the world.  And travel the world she did!  For seven years, Simone lived in Cape Town, South Africa, and traveled between Cape Town and the rest of the world!  She became a senior buyer and absolutely loved it!

Simone also shares the very personal story of how she discovered the truth about why she looks so different than her four sisters, as well as what brought her to America.

So what does it mean when Simone calls herself a White African American Latina?  Well, simply put, Simone’s father was from England, she was born in Zimbabwe, her mother is from Spain, and Simone is very honored and blessed to live in the United States.  There you have it!

Simone is such a lovely person and a true inspiration.  Tune in for a great interview!

Simone Kvalheim is the Director of LifeWave, a company that produces patented, proprietary wellness products to deliver more energy, better sleep, reduced stress, sharper mental focus, and an overall feeling of youthful vitality.  If you’d like to learn more about LifeWave, contact Simone Kvalheim at (760) 953-9484 (text preferred) and please write “Dr. Bunny” in the text so she knows you heard the information on this show.

Ask Dr. Bunny. How do you create, maintain and cultivate relationships? Ed Blumenstock, guest.

Ed Blumenstock joins Dr. Bunny to discuss relationships.  Dr. Bunny met Ed when she joined Toastmasters, and was really touched by the way he instantly made her feel so welcomed.

As she’s gotten to know Ed, she has noticed that he seems to have a natural knack for creating, cultivating and maintaining relationships – what a gift! – and she wanted to know more about how he does that so well.

Ed tells us how a career in sales has been instrumental in his way of interacting with people.  In sales, you must be much more concerned about your client than you are yourself.

Ed believes in the Dr. Seuss philosophy of “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”!

Tune in as Ed shares some thoughts, insights, and stories.  A true delight, especially during this unprecedented time in our country. Prepare to be inspired!

And just for fun, here’s a link to the beautiful song that Ed and Dr. Bunny mentioned, “Dance Me To the End of Love” by Leonard Cohen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGorjBVag0I
