Listener Questions Answered

Today’s podcast features two questions submitted by our listeners:

  1. How do you know you’re a morning person?
  2. How do you know your WHY?

How do you know you’re a morning person?

In an earlier podcast, Rhonda mentioned she is a morning person.  Andee and Rhonda discussed the meaning of a morning person and how one goes about determining whether they are a morning person.

  1. Know your biorhythms.

This article from Psychology Today gives some insight into Biorhythms:

  1. Know what is required of you to complete your task.

Andee shared her secret weapon when faced with a big task she feels unprepared to tackle.  She starts with a nap. Her strategy is supported by this article from

This is an interesting point from the article.  “One of the biggest peaks in melatonin production happens between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.

Andee’s Power Nap Training Instructions

  1. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 15 minutes. (If you work in your cubicle, is there somewhere else you can go?)
  2. If you have an office, turn your chair so you are facing away from the door.
  3. Set an alarm on your phone for 10 – 15 minutes. Make sure it’s no longer than 15 minutes.
  4. Prop your feet up and lean your head back into the chair.
  5. Relax and allow yourself to drift off.

Whether you are a morning person or a night owl, it comes down to knowing your time of highest productivity and scheduling your most important work tasks during those times as much as possible.

How do you know your WHY?

This question was posed after a listener heard our podcast, How is Your WHY Communicated to the World? The answer is one we’ll be addressing more fully at the upcoming Bold & Courageous Leader Retreat.  Your life experiences point to your WHY. Once you understand this, you can see your WHY more clearly.  You can download a copy of the assessment we use for this process here

Finding your WHY takes time.  It requires reflecting on your life.  There’s an arrow there; it takes time and reflection to see it pointing toward your WHY.  The time you spend identifying your WHY is well worth it.

Rosemary Losser shares her journey as a Bold and Courageous Leader from a lack of confidence to living out the message she is called to share with the world.  Rosemary is an expert in conflict resolution. She has a Master’s Degree in Leadership and Personal Development, as well as graduate certification in Conflict Resolution and Peacemaking from Duquesne University.  Along with these credentials, she has a Life Coaching Certificate in coaching Work Teams from the Professional Christian Coaching Institute. 

She has become the "go to" person to mediate conflicts and present training programs on communication and conflict resolution.  She created comprehensive Leadership Development, Communication and Conflict Resolution Program to help leaders create a workplace where open, honest, and cooperative relationships are valued, and productivity is maintained.   Her signature program is Productivity through Peaceful Relationships. She provides one-on-one and group coaching,  as well as on-site training. Coming soon are online courses and webinars.

She shares her expertise with us in this podcast – teaching us valuable tips about conflict, perspective, and relationship building along the way.  She’s generously provided us with her LIFE poem, an acronym to help us remember the steps to conflict resolution.

Gems from the Interview:

“Life is all about conflict, solving one conflict after another.  That’s how we develop.”

“Conflict is normal and a sign of growth.”

“The strongest quality of a leader is being a listener.”

“It doesn’t have to be my way or your way, but let’s create a way.”

The LIFE acronym is the foundation of Rosemary’s conflict resolution process. She’s created a poem with it. Click here to download it.

Beth Boehr wears many hats; investment advisor, budgeting resource and author. God has impressed on her heart the need to share a message of developing your legacy, the practical nuts and bolts details that your family needs in times of crisis or losing a loved one, as well as the emotional story you want to share with your family to be carried on through the generations.

Love Legacy Ledger
Beth’s life journey includes losing her Mom as a young woman and her husband in her mid-forties. After these experiences, she felt God calling her to organize her own papers and documents. Through that process, she developed a product for others called Love Legacy Ledger. This book is about the practical side of life. As she developed the Love Legacy Ledger, it became more obvious that there was more to the story.

Love Legacy Letter
Love Legacy Letter is in the design process right now. This book focuses on the emotional side of life. What do you want to be passed on to the next generations from your life? Just as the Bible shows us, there are lessons and stories that were passed down through the generations…ones that we’re learning from today. The book includes a collection of probing questions to stir your mind and heart to remember. Sometimes it’s painful; sometimes it brings laughter, sometimes tears. We need to take time to express the emotions.

Lessons from Nehemiah
Learning her WHY helped her to understand her reason for this passion. Through studying the book of Nehemiah, she learned that we need to rebuild healthy walls in our families; we need to tear down the unhealthy ones and get healing. My big vision for the Love Legacy is a retreat center where you have opportunities to have intentional conversations with each other. We need a focused time to say our family is coming together to share our hearts, to let our hearts be heard.
She says, “God has given me a vision and I’m learning to trust him for the journey.”
