“You can have it all…you just have to be smart about it.”
How would you define legacy?
If you’re really creating a legacy you have to think about what’s going to happen after you’re gone. Who will be the people that carry the torch for you when you’re no longer able to carry it?
What FN (Frugal and) Phenomenal is all about
To be frugal and phenomenal is all about making value driven choices with your money that will bring you the greatest happiness.
Being phenomenal is about taking your God-given gifts and your purpose and using that to figure out how to advance humanity with that.
Who is your Shero?
My mother. She is so strong and she is the epitome of someone who sacrifices for what matters most. She chose to walk away from her career to raise her kids.
She was the first African American women to graduate from Cleveland State’s Chemical Engineering program. She had to go through so much as a trailblazer.
What Aisha is pretty excited about?
Her new book, “5 + 5 FNPhenomenal ways to Save $100 this Week without Killing Your Lifestyle.”

When you look at your life you need to ask yourself two questions

It’s what you leave behind.
It’s the way you’ve touched other people that allows them to go out and do their thing.
Who is your Shero?
Marie Forleo and Danielle LaPorte were BIG mentors/influencers of mine. But then I realized that when I put people on pedestals I was putting myself below them. I couldn’t expand and step into my own power if I was constantly putting others on pedestals. I’ve decided to be my own guru.

“If you can’t be reflective you can’t actually learn from your life experiences.” - Michele Woodward
How would you define legacy?
The legacy piece is like the Personal Planning Tool because if knock on wood something should ever happen to me…that thing lives, and it continues to be of service. Legacy is something enduring that brings good to world.
Who is your Shero?
I have a strong belief about this. Whenever you put someone on a pedestal, they’re not able to look anyone in the eye. I don’t have a hero because I don’t want to put someone in a place where they can’t look me in the eye. Because if they can’t look me in the eye then they can’t fully be themselves.
To me…everybody is my hero.

Michele’s advice to help you take action
1.       Get very clear on your why? (If you want to get promoted ask yourself why?)
2.       Figure out if you can do it by yourself or if you’re going to need someone’s help
3.       Break it down into small chunks
Michele’s advice to help you push past fear
Listen to the interview here to learn the single question to help you push past fear while keeping in mind…This is simply a test.
What is Michele pretty excited about?

Michele is also working on ideas for two books!
Parting Advice from Michele
Self-love is making a safe place for you to be fully yourself. This is about accepting who you are at your core and loving who you are at your core. Even the parts of yourself that drive you crazy…If you can go to the place where you can love yourself, appreciate yourself, and get a kick out of yourself... You can get out of your own way.

I would define legacy as the stamp and finger print that you leave on the world. In some way you’re going to touch someone’s life. You’re going to inspire someone. So whatever it is that you do with your gifts and skills you’ll be leaving a mark even if you don’t know it.

Shalena’s quote to live by (a poem written by Shalena DIVA)
When I See You by When I see you, I see a world of possibility
When I see you, I see a world of second chances
When I see you, I see a future waiting to be fulfilled
When I see you, I see a future Queen
When I see you, I see a confident woman
When I see you, I see a strong woman
When I see you, I see a beautiful woman
When I see you, I see a future Queen
When I see you, I see brilliance
When I see you, I see resilience
When I see you, I see intelligence
When I see you, I see a future Queen
How could it be that I don’t know you, yet I see so much?
The answer is simple, but profound nonetheless
I see so much in you, because in you I see ME!

“Discover, Invest, Value and Appreciate your God given gifts and talents, and build your life around them.”
“Being a DIVA can help you leave a legacy.”
“The people whom you are meant to serve are going to be carbon copies of who you once were.”
"...the answer they're seeking has been within them all along."
Who’s your Shero?
I am my own Shero.
No one can convince you to change or become a better person except for you. If you become your own Shero it makes you more responsible for your happiness, for your well-being, for your overall health. The DIVA taught me how to encourage myself, and go after my dreams.
There is a crown just above your head, but you have to grow into it.
You are the queen. You write the script. You write your own story and hopefully you’re the leading lady in your story.
How would you define legacy?
What you would love to leave behind. But you can’t create your legacy unless you live it today.
Legacy is not selfish. When the future generations come along they will be able to learn from you. Legacy is about having the courage to live your life today and document it.
“We must excavate document our lives because if we don’t our existence will be like a relic something that is misunderstood.” -- Opal Palmer Adisa
Shalena’s book recommendations Best advice from Shalena
Really quiet the chatter in your mind. Quiet all the voices…and really learn how to become silent so that you can hear. You need to take time out every morning. Get quiet so that you can just hear yourself.

Let’s Talk Legacy Episode 012: She Built a 7 Figure Business (during the recession while battling severe postpartum depression)
Meet Sophie!

Spirit junkie. Pleasure pundit. Award winning realtor. Hot mom. Co-founder of S+M: a business course on how to sell and market yourself effortlessly. 
Sophie is in the top 5% of all real estate agents in North America and consistently sells multi-million dollars of real estate each year working part time. In fact, she built her 7 figure business in the midst of a recession while battling severe postpartum depression. 
A real adventurer at heart, she’s been seen in Forbes and Rebelle Society in addition to being featured on Youtube for her off-the-cuff interviews of professional athletes. Sophie also sits on the board of directors for Micro-Skills, a non-profit that supports immigrants in finding work once then arrive to Canada. 
When she’s not juggling her two boys, amazing guy or dog friend Diezel, she’s flying to exotic places, skydiving from airplanes or helping out a friend in need. More than anything, Sophie believes in inspiring others to take risks, putting herself out there and viewing life as much as possible with childlike curiosity. She currently lives in Toronto, Canada.
Keep in touch

Who’s your Shero?
Amelia Earhart. I loved how fierce she was. She really stood for who she was. People really admired her…she was authentic. She was an early version of authenticity especially for a woman of her time.
How would you define legacy?
The trail of inspiration that you leave behind you. The things that you did in your life that inspire others. Like pixie dust.
Where have you started to see the fruits of your legacy in how you live?
My children.
My 10 year old son came to me and said, “Mommy you have the best life.” I asked him why he thought that, and he said, “Because you follow your dreams. You are an adventurer and you just live with a huge amount of passion.”
You lead by example for your children.

I share my experiences on the Design Life Project, and teach e-courses to help others to: focus on what matters, love the people around you, find your passion, leave a legacy that you are proud of, and go to bed at night with a big ol’ smile on your face... regardless of the day’s circumstances, knowing you did a job well done.

In this episode, Cathy shares her story about how surviving an extremely rare surgery (the removal of a very rare tumor) was the catalyst for her choice to live her legacy in every moment of every day. She shares: how continuously refining our life and work leads to happiness and success, how to find balance through customization, and even reveals the most significant lessons learned from dodging her own death. In the end, Cathy challenges us all to live and LOVE fully each and every day-- as if it truly were our last.

One Month to Live by Kerry Shook
Best advice
Step away from anything that makes you feel less than. It’s not always about adding things in our lives it can also be about subtracting. Anything that makes you feel less or worse about yourself or negative just get rid of it. Really simplify. Fill up your days with things you really love.

“Love wins.” – Desiree Adaway
“If we don’t define ourselves for ourselves, we’ll perish.”—Desiree Adaway paraphrasing Audre Lorde’s

“Fear is what keeps us small in life and fear is what keeps us smaller than we are.”
“Be careful what you say…you never know the impact it’s going to have on somebody.”

“We have to know that we are worthy of the great things that can happen to us.”
Who’s your Shero?
My mom. She sacrificed a lot for her kids. I would also have to say, that all the women in my family are my Sheroes. They are all amazing women who left me with a lot of wisdom and laughter.
How would you define legacy?
It’s the feeling or the mist that comes after me. It’s how my children live and how they raise their children to live. And I personally won’t have any say in it.
My book recommendation(s)
My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird – I just love the sense of justice. For me, justice and social justice have been an integral part of what the women in my life taught me.
Daring Greatly  – Brene Brown
Best advice
Wholly be yourself.
The world will tell you that you are not enough or that you are too much, and it’s all a dirty lie. You are amazing the way you are.

Let’s Talk Legacy Episode 009: Courage and the Female Breadwinner with Dr. Dawn DeLavallade

 Meet Dawn!

Dawn DeLavallade, M.D. is a practicing physician and freelance writer based in Orlando, Florida. With several years’ experience as the primary breadwinner in her own marriage, Dawn recognizes that she is part of an emerging trend in American relationships. This phenomenon inspired her first book entitled “She Makes More-Inside the Minds of Female Breadwinners”  which serves to provide a voice for female breadwinners in America. Her book reveals the thoughts and feelings that female breadwinners are often reluctant to tell their mates and will serve as a manual to help men better understand this unique breed of wife.

In this episode Dr. Dawn Delavallade shares how listening to that still small voice moved her to step into her power and use her voice, not as a radiologist, but as a champion for female breadwinners around the world. You’ll even find out how Kim Kardashian inspired Dawn to take action now!

“I’m going to be the change I want to see.”
“Goals help me get up in the morning.”
“You have to slow down long enough to dream.”
“We need to design our lives the way we want it to be.”
Who’s your Shero?
I don’t have just one. I have many women in my life who at different points in time have inspired me. Some of these women include my older sister, my cousin, and my mother. But the person who inspired me the most to act was Kim Kardashian.
How would you define legacy?
The lasting impact that each of us leaves once we have moved on from this life. What will you be remembered as? What impact will you have had on the lives of others? How many people have you really helped or influenced during your time on this earth?
My book recommendation(s)
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
Best advice
Slow down long enough to dream.
Your passion…that thing inside of you that just won’t go away is God whispering to you what you’re meant to do with your life. You can choose to ignore it until you’re 6 feet underground, but the courageous individual won’t ignore it, they’ll act on it and begin to manifest their purpose.

How would you define legacy?
The body of work that you leave behind at the end of your life.
Tell us more about this “body of work.”
Your body of work consists of the things that you create within your work life…but it’s also what you leave behind in terms of the quality of love you leave in your family. The mark you leave in your community. That’s the thing that ends up living on long after we’re gone.
What is that overall big body of work that you’re leaving that captures your spirit so that will remember you. What kind of change have you effected?

Who’s your Shero?
Tonya Surmon – she’s incredibly good at community building.
How would you define legacy?
What I leave behind when I’m gone. Whether that’s leaving a room, leaving an organization, a community, or ultimately leaving this planet. Legacy gives our lives meaning and purpose because it’s really about creating a sense of permanence.  It’s about leaving every situation better than when I found it.
My book recommendation(s)

Additional Resource: Now Discover Your Strengths by Marcus Buckingham
Best advice 
Just start.
Start doing something you love. If you listen to yourself, you’ll discover what makes you light up, what you enjoy etc. Do something you love even if it’s just for 15 minutes a day.
