Some people aren't quite sure what their Love Bomb is, Mary is a constant Love Bomb and continuously struggles with listening, churning, creating, refining, and choosing which Love Bombs to focus on as her inspirations guide her.

This artistic approach to finding her gifts and giving them as service and vocation has led her to create "The Art of Story Project."  The project started as a public speaking online classroom for women in chiropractic and has evolved to become online classes for entrepreneurs who are seeking to improve their ability to create compelling content by integrating the craft of story in a way that will touch people's hearts and minds.

In our conversation we share about how we find and measure our own success in the process of creating our podcasts (she has two, Pattern Interrupt and ADIO Radio), as well as in our lives in general.

I love also how much she talks about the use of story as a way to look at the Hero's Journey of our lives and to appreciate the moments of struggle and squeeze as much as the moments of ease, as well as to learn the potential art of reframing our stories to a more empowered tale.

More on Mary:

She became a chiropractor although she had originally trained for a career in writing, marketing and communication.  After practicing in Wisconsin and Iowa, she made an unusual choice to serve the profession and her passions by working exclusively in chiropractic college enrollment for the past 12 years.  Mary is currently the Dean of Enrollment at Life Chiropractic College West where she has lead the recruitment and outreach team to substantial growth.


The Ethical and Fulfilling Business of Service

In this episode of Love Bombers I speak with my own business coach Shawn Dill about the business of service.  As a Love Bomber myself I reached a point in my life where I had to choose that in order to keep going with my passionate hobby of making media, like the film Love Bomb, and other courses to uplift other people's lives, I would have to start making it a business in order to have the time and resources I spend on it also add value to my family.  I hired Shawn to help me look at this hobby and help me to align it so that I could turn it into a business where my authenticity, passion for service, and love for others was also aligned with the needs and values of enough people that I could earn money for my family in exchange.  Today Shawn speaks about the principles he uses to help me while answering pertinent questions from other Love Bombers wanting to be in the ethical and fulfilling business of service.

During the episode Shawn also references the book that has helped me, Book Yourself Solid.
