Find Your Purpose And Passion With Callie Hearne

Beautiful day, you beautiful souls. This is Charla Anderson, host of The Charla Anderson Show, collector and connector of fascinating people, and everyone is fascinating, especially YOU! I’m so grateful that you would take the time to tune in to my show and to see what we got going here because we’re always going to be encouraging. We’re on,, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, the streaming services, and Podetize with the podcast of the show. I’m excited about that. All of this is coming together.

I’m excited to introduce you to my guest, my sweet lady, Ms. Callie Hearne. We’re going to talk about unyielding strength and Callie’s journey to achieve excellence. We’re going to learn a lot more about her but first, as you know, I do a breathing exercise in the beginning. It’s mostly for me, but I hope it helps you. It’s a 22-second mini-meditation. We’re going to breathe in seven seconds of calm. We’re going to hold for 4 seconds and breathe out 11 seconds of gratitude. I can’t wait for you to try it. If you’ve not done it before, it’s centering. You do it multiple times a day if you need to.

Let’s breathe in calm for 7 seconds. Hold, breathe out, gratitude release. Thank you. Centering, grounding, settling, and I’m grateful that you joined me with that. If you hang on to the end, Callie Hearne and I are going to be having a conversation about overcoming in our lives, and how we can encourage you and offer hope to anyone and everyone.

I’m going to introduce you to Callie Hearne. I have a story about her. I’m going to say what she said. She said, “I’m living proof that change is possible, that hope can prevail, and that determination can break even the strongest change that binds us. Our collective action can transform societies, and our individual resolve can inspire those around us. Never let your spirit be broken and always remember that the future is led by the brave, resilient, and the selfless.”

I love that about you, Callie. I know that about you. I know that you are the wife of a very famous name, but Friday Night Lights is very famous. Coach Nathanial Hearne, your husband, has got his own book, Friday Night Lights. It is an incredible story of overcoming. I encourage you to get that. You chose to do that. You’re the wind beneath his wings. That’s what I’m getting to because he’s on the stages. I’ll say this one more thing. We’re going to talk not as much about him but more about you.


TCAS 14 | Purpose And Passion


He was on the stage the first time I met you guys at Ziglars. We are Ziglar Legacy certified trainers, coaches, and all that. He spoke in a room full of Ziglars. He was told that that was the most inspirational talk they had ever heard, which is incredible when you’re in a room full of Ziglar folks because Zig Ziglar was the master. I agree. I’ve heard him many times now. I don’t think he’d be where he is if it wasn’t for you. You’re lovely, beautiful, and so sweet. Your compassion is unmatched. Let’s meet you, Callie. Tell us a little about you, who you are, what you are going in this world, where you’ve been, and where you are headed.

Coach Hearne, Dr. Hearne, and Friday Night Lights are part of my story. I do feel that Coach Hearne and I came together divinely for that reason. We both are in such agreement that we’re placed here on this Earth for a reason. We all have a purpose. It takes more than an individual to achieve that purpose by himself or herself. We look at ourselves as a team. He’s totally gifted as an inspirational speaker. He has a gift. He can tell a story. I’m speaking to the choir here because when he spoke at the Ziglar conference, everyone was simply moved and drawn into his story. That’s his gift.


That gift is inside of him and he knows that he has to get it out. That is part of his purpose. Part of my purpose is to help him to get that gift out. I feel inspired every time I’m there to hear him and to be a part of what happens in the room, to be in the room where it happens. A little side note here, we make this dream list. I think all of us do. Some of us say, “We have a bucket list,” but we call it a dream list. His dream list was to go to New York City, to Yankee Stadium, and see the Yankees play. My dream was to go to Broadway and see Hamilton. About a month or so ago, we were able to check that off of our dream list. That’s a little side note there.

About me, I feel that what is important in life is for us to know who we are. As I coach and as I work with, and I love working with women, I see that many of us have not been able to hone in on our identity. We keep searching for our identity like wearing designer clothes. There’s nothing wrong with people who wear designer clothes or any of that, but those are people’s identities. What is our identity? You ask me that question. It’s a long answer that I’m going to give you because it goes back to when I was created.

My identity started when I was born. I was named after my two grandmothers. My maternal grandmother’s name was Callie, and my paternal grandmother’s name was Susie. I was named Callie Sue. That was a lot in that naming, but I even want to go back further than that because my identity is wrapped up in my childhood, background, parents, and ancestry. All of that dictated who I am now. It was my structure that was in place. To tell you how much that means to me, to be able to share this with you and your audience. By the way, thank you so much for allowing me to be here. I appreciate that.

I want to go back to my grandfather. His name was Prince Albert Williams. My grandfather was born into slavery. President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation when my grandfather was eight years old. For the first eight years of his life, he was a slave. He was a child and he was a slave. From that background, he endured a lot of obstacles in his life, but he didn’t allow the stigma of being in slavery to hold him back. He had that vision.

What I want you and others to see is my family legacy. I can’t go back any further than my grandfather, but I know that it started with my grandfather because he became a well-respected man in his community. One of his jobs was as a railroad foreman on the Cotton Belt railroad. He was one of the first Blacks to be a conductor on the Cotton Belt railroad. We’re talking about identity and who I am. Prince Albert Williams is a big part of who I am.



From there, he had one of his children, my father, AC Williams. He also had a vision. He took that on from my grandfather. His thing was he felt that education was important because there were many in the community where he grew up that were not educated. They were farmers. They worked the fields. My dad knew that education was the way to get out of that. That was his goal. He went to college, graduated from college, and got his Master’s degree. He became an educator in that community.

One of the other side notes with my dad, and this is what I feel is instilled in his children, is he was in World War II. He was commissioned or appointed to be part of the Red Ball Express in World War II. I don’t know if you know what that is, but during the war, there was a time and this is in 1944. General Patton was at a certain point in the campaign. He had all his troops there, but they couldn’t get supplies, food, or anything.

This group of Black soldiers was named the Red Ball Express. This was in France. They drove those trucks. You’ll have to read the story. That’s fascinating when you go back and read about it. They went through all obstacles to get the supplies to the troops. That was part of my dad. That was my dad who was there. He took great pride. I can remember growing up with his stories. He was a great storyteller and I can remember him telling stories about being in World War II. He would light up when he told those stories because he knew that his life made a difference with those soldiers that he took care of there. From there, he was an educator. He was very instrumental in growing the small community that I grew up in and was very well respected.

Can I ask what state or community?

It’s here in Texas and the community that I grew up in. It’s Commerce, Texas. I’m in Arlington now. Maybe it’s about 70 miles from here. It is in Northeast Texas. He had the characteristics. He became an educator. He had a knack for coaching. My father was an athletic coach. When I was in high school, he coached me in basketball. He taught me history. I loved being in his class and what he did. It was my goal early on to become a teacher like my dad. I admired him. I wanted to be like my dad. You and I talked a little bit beforehand about the name.

I was like, “Is it a nickname or a birth name?” I said, “My middle name is Sue. I’m Charla Sue.” We both have a little bit of distinctive names for distinctive reasons, and they mean something.

I didn’t understand the true meaning of my name when I was growing up because I had friends with names like Carolyn, Patricia, and Irma. I thought, “I wished I had a pretty name. I don’t like my name. It is different from everybody else’s name.”

I didn’t like mine either.

I developed an appreciation for the name Callie. I was a freshman in college. At the time, there was a university in Commerce. It’s the Texas A&M University of Commerce now. At the time, it was East Texas State University. That’s the school that I went to. I can remember being this little freshman sitting in this Economics class. The year before, they had integrated the college. There was some fear there. Thinking of myself as being different and not knowing. All of my schooling in elementary and high school was in a segregated school setting.

This was the first time I was in an integrated setting. There was some fear there. I was sitting in class and my professor, Dr. Dories, I will never forget his name, as he was calling the role when he got to my name. He looked up and said, “Callie, will you come to my office after class today?” I’m thinking, “What in the world have I done wrong that he wants me to come to his office after class?”

When I went to his office, he told me, “I have a question for you. Would you happen to have a grandmother or someone in your family with the name Callie?” I said, “My grandmother’s name is Callie. I was named after her.” He said, “I have to tell you, she saved my life when I was in college. I was an undergraduate student here at East Texas State.” My grandmother was a great cook. She was a pastry chef. She worked in the cafeteria there at that university. He was a student who may have been on work-study or something of that nature.

He said, “Do you know she made sure that I ate every morning? After we had served the line and all that, she’d come over. She’d ask me, ‘Have you had breakfast?’ She’d always bring breakfast over. She’d always sit and talk. We’d have this great conversation. She made me feel good. I’d like for you to tell her how much I appreciate what she did for me. I’m thankful for her.” He gave me $50. He said, “This is not paying her for anything, but it’s a gift to let her know how much I appreciate her.”

I’m starting to think, “This is interesting. My name plus the Williams part of my name is my legacy.” I feel like everything that my parents and my grandparents wanted in life taught that to us as their children. As my topic says, it was about perseverance. It was not about looking at obstacles. It was all about, “What’s your vision? What’s your dream? What are you going to do?” It was always about education and then, “How do you get there?”

Something you said that ensuring that you excelled in the face of adversity, your parents were committed to that. It could not have been easy in your situation or circumstance. Very few people have it easy regardless, but some are much harder than others. When you have complete family support, a drive, an intention, and they had an intention that you have, you’re an overcomer. You do what needs to be done. It seems to have obviously paid off.

You’ve been an educator ever since. In fact, you’re an award-winning educator if I’m not mistaken, an administrator and a counselor. Now, you’re a coach and a supporter of a great husband. He’s a supporter of a great wife. You guys are such a beautiful team together. I’m going to insert this one little story because when I did meet you, guys, I had inherited two step-grandkids unexpectedly. Their mom had died in a fire.

They showed up in our lives, and after I heard Nate talk and his inspiration, I asked you guys if you would meet with them. We had lunch with those two. I think it had been two summers in a row now. You’re so compassionate, giving, generous, and kind. They appreciate it, and I certainly do. It’s a huge thing. To me, that’s evidence of who you guys are in your legacy. He has a celebrity status now, Coach Hearne, in a way. When good people reach and they reach down and lift up beautiful stories. We appreciate it very much.

Thank you for that. Your grandchildren were a joy. We love that time with them. That brings me to the second thing that I would love to share. That is how important it is to identify our why and our purpose. Why are we here? Why are we placed on Earth? Why do we exist?

We started with that because our name does mean something. Sometimes we don’t find the identity. People search all their lives and don’t see it. That’s who you are.

Our name does mean something. Sometimes people search for their identity all their lives and don't see them. Share on X

That’s who I am. It’s important to embrace that. I hope from my story, you and your audience will understand. There’s no bitterness there. We were not raised in a home where my grandparents and my parents were bitter about our situation because it’s about being who you are, embracing that, and being proud of who you are. I’m very proud of who I am and how I grew up. I want my children and grandchildren to know that part of my history. They need to know that part of my history.

If you fast forward all these many years to put a little cap on the story, my dad was well respected in that community. He retired after 44 years as an educator and administrator in Commerce. There is a school that they have named after him, an elementary school in Commerce, Texas, AC Williams Elementary School. That was because he was able to build bridges. He worked with people in such a different way that he was able to always get what was needed, even in a time when maybe that wasn’t what the majority of the people wanted. He knew what he needed for that community to grow. He was able to do that. It’s not about guilt or feeling that we were not treated fairly. All of that was there. Life is life. It’s reality.

Life keeps living. The only place you have to live from is where you are right this second. You are right now where you are this second. You can’t change the last second, last week, or last generation. You can’t change one breath that you’ve taken already. You can only change the next one. If that message could get out there, get over being upset about everything and triggered by everything and all that because this is your life. If you don’t love where you are, you don’t have any other place to be right this second.

You have to move forward. All of it has to be with, first of all, knowing who you are and then knowing whose you are. I did talk about my family, but I was created by God. God created all of us. God didn’t make a difference in that way where one group can have all these advantages whereas another group cannot with circumstances.

God created all of us. God didn't make differences in that way, where one group can have all these advantages while others cannot. Share on X

That was manmade.

We have to be strong and persevere. One of the big words in my family is, “Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today.” It was about bringing up the best. It was totally about work ethic. We worked hard. There wasn’t a fact that we had to be so much better than everyone else because there was our skin color. It was a lot about judgment. You were judged initially on skin color in a lot of situations, but you had to be much better where people started thinking, “You would be a perfect fit for this position. I like working with you.” We never got bogged down in that.

Good for you. What a blessing.

It is all about opportunities.

You became a superintendent of a human resources department and did some unique strategies. I don’t know if you wanted to jump to that or not. It is something that I caught that you served a school district for many years in a very big capacity and made changes that are probably still implemented today.

That is part of my story now as well. One of the things that I did want to say is I was the assistant superintendent of human resources of Hurst Euless Bedford ISD. It was the first time an African American ever held a position such as that in that school district. It was incumbent upon me to utilize the strengths of my team. One person cannot do it by themselves. We used what was called the Clifton Strengths. Everybody in our district and all the administrators were trained with that assessment. It’s a Gallup assessment.

StrengthsFinder thing.

They’ve renamed it to Clifton Strengths. During that time that I was assistant superintendent, that’s how we planned. We’d have our meetings. I was part of the superintendent’s cabinet. We used that in my role as part of the superintendent’s cabinet, but I used it so much with my HR team because we have different projects. We knew our strengths. I knew who could do what.

It wasn’t me telling everyone what to do. We get in there and problem-solve. From that, we would implement processes and get the job done. We get the work done. We loved it. We were a family. As a matter of fact, they call me over now. I do a lot of work with them now in different capacities because the assistant superintendent of human resources now was a lady that I hired. I hired her because of her talents. She was outstanding. It’s about being able to identify talent.

Lift them up.

It was a win-win. My number one strength is maximizer. With that, I can identify the talent. It’s easy for me to identify talent in other people. Once they know what the task is, they can do it based on their talent. I’m not there overseeing them step by step. I have complete confidence that the job is going to get done the way that I would want it done because they got to know me well.





You give them that confidence, and then they want to do their best. It’s such a win-win situation when you give someone the trust and confidence. Unless they prove you wrong, they’re probably open to guidance. It’s a beautiful example of what you were able to accomplish. You and Coach Nate are now doing coaching. There’s a core clarity certification.

It’s a perfect segue from what I did as assistant superintendent of human resources. Nate first went through the core clarity process. The founder of that is Candace Fitzpatrick. What she discovered was there was a relationship among those strengths that Gallup hadn’t put together in that way. She put together the core clarity process. It was so revealing. It’s a very usable way to understand your talents and strengths. We take the strengths from the Clifton Strengths, put those into the core clarity framework, and then we come up with the core clarity profile.

That’s what we use in our coaching because we see that the way that it’s done in core clarity makes those talents more relatable. That’s part of the coaching that we do. It’s called personal discovery. We do seminars where we train teams and companies with that. We also do individual and group coaching with it. They identify their top five strengths from Gallup. We take those top five and put them into this framework, which shows how some of those talents are external talents and their talents you use with other people. Some are internal talents. Talents that you use within yourself, then we look at the four quadrants. It is significant how that process goes.

Once they go through the process with us where they understand their top five talents, then we take them through a process of helping them to identify their passion. By identifying their passion, we help them to identify their purpose. It’s almost a seamless process. Many who go through this are amazed that, “This is why I do things this way. That’s not a bad thing because your talents are what’s inside of you and none of them are bad.” It’s learning how to use those so they work for you and not against you.

TCAS 14 | Purpose And Passion
Purpose And Passion: Your talents are what’s inside of you, and none of them are bad. It’s learning how to use them so they work for you and not against you.


We see those talents, “This is nothing that you had to do to get these talents. You were born with these talents. Now that you know what your talents are, they’re not for you to keep inside of you. They’re for you to use with other people.” That’s when we start talking about passion. We talk about there are different kinds of passion, like general passion. You may see something and you may feel a little passionate about it. You may say, “I’m not going to do anything about that. I hope somebody else gets out there and does something about it,” and then there’s your personal passion.

Give us an example of one of your success stories through all that. You probably have many, but somebody that comes to mind that I can relate to this journey from passion. I finally said, “Your passion is how you treat the person in front of you. If you don’t have any other passion, that’s the bottom line passion that everybody can have. Treat each other with kindness and respect.” I’d love to know a story or an example of what you’re talking about.

TCAS 14 | Purpose And Passion
Purpose And Passion: We need to treat each other with kindness and respect.


Let me give you a little brief because we do coach quite a number of people with that. I’ll talk about one young lady that we’re coaching who is a college student. We took her through the process. She is a single mom. She wants to be an event planner. She’s going through all this and she’s having some difficulties trying to put it all together. As we go through the process of helping her to identify what she’s passionate about, she can put it in writing that what she wants to do is to help single moms look at resources that will help them to raise their child in an effective way. She was able to put that in writing at the end of the process that we took her through.

Clarifying to the core. That sounds awesome. How does she find you? How do we find you and what is your best contact? What is your best call to action? What do you want people to know about all this?

The way you find me is to go to our website All of our services are there. If you put, it’ll take you directly to my page, but then you can access all the other pages from that page. We have everything listed there. You can find us there. I went through the process of my purpose. I feel that I exist to maximize purpose in myself and others so that hope and inner peace abound through the power of the Holy Spirit. That’s my genuine purpose.

That’s your core.

Your genuine purpose is something that you have to do before you die, and you’re held accountable. I’ll be held accountable for that, whether or not I have lived out my purpose. That’s why I exist. That’s why we do what we do. I would do it for free if I didn’t have to charge for it because your purpose is something that you would do for free.

Your purpose is something that you would do for free. Share on X

I’m sure you do it for free. You can’t not do it. I feel like that’s a piece of it. Once you get a little more clarity on who you are, who you are in this world, and why you’re moving in this realm right now, you’ve got to do it. You never stop doing it.

You never retire. That’s what I want women to understand. You have a purpose in life. It’s finding out what it is and what gets you up, then you won’t be thinking about all the aches, pains, all this, and all that. You have a reason to get up. You have a life. You’re out there helping other people so you can’t stay in bed. You have to get up.

You have a life. You're out there helping other people. So you can't stay in bed. You have to get up. Share on X

You get outward-focused rather than inward-focused, I think that many people are focused right on what’s wrong instead of what’s possible. What you’re doing is guiding people to find what’s possible. You’ve watched it. I’m sure every time somebody gets it, all of a sudden, they get flushed. They feel it to their core. They don’t have to write it down. They know it and they know where. When you can facilitate that gift in someone, it’s got to be the best feeling in the entire world.

We have such a burden on our hearts to help young people. The young people are our future. They’re getting inundated with social media.

Mixed messages. Maybe some with agendas that aren’t serving us, the children, or the people.

The images that young people see on social media, they feel like they can’t live up to. It’s all about celebrities and real life.

Everybody wants to be an influencer, but not everybody can be an influencer. There are a lot of negative influencers out there. Sorry.

We have such a burden since we are educators. My husband does a program called How Do You Make Your Dreams Come True? We finished one of those with a group of middle school students. It was amazing to see the light bulb go off in their eyes when they started thinking about their dreams.

They do have a choice. A lot of them are on this reactive path instead of a proactive path.

We have to get them to think in that way. You may have grown up this way. You know my husband’s story. His is different from mine growing up. Those students can identify and they think, “This is someone who grew up the way that I did. He’s not perpetuating.” They think a lot of times, adults are perpetrating, but they see him. They hear his story, and we work with them.

They feel his compassion. You cannot walk in your presence or his presence and not feel the depth of compassion that you have for each person.

My call to action to all of you who are tuning in to this is that you do have a purpose. Your birth was a purpose. It’s incumbent upon you to find out what that purpose is because you may be the only one that can save someone in the way that you can do it.


TCAS 14 | Purpose And Passion


It’s like what your grandmother did to that professor.

It’s about what you can do individually, and then collectively, you start making a difference. Our world does not have to be negative the way that it is.

Our world does not have to be negative the way that it is. Share on X

Drama is a choice too. Embrace the drama all the time. You might turn off that box in the room or that screen on the wall for a while, and discover that you have your own original thoughts.

That’s my call to action. If nothing else results from us having our conversation today for someone’s thought process to be smart to understand, “I am here for a reason.” I need to find out what that reason is.

Your coaching program is called Made Up Minds. Imagine a world where everyone’s voice matters. A world where your character, ideas, and talent are the only measures of your worth. We must be each other’s strength. We must create opportunities for those who are too often left behind. There’s nobody unworthy.

I do have a saying, “The harder people are to love, the more they need it, honestly. That doesn’t mean they’re unworthy.” We want to love them where they are and love them through, bullies even. They don’t love themselves. That’s what I tell my grandkids, “They don’t love themselves enough to be able to treat people well.” Bullies are victims too. I’m not supporting that at all, but it’s a perspective that perhaps you can learn to have a little bit of compassion for the people that are harder to love. I’m going to ask you a question that Zig Ziglar asked me multiple times and asked everybody he ever met. Have you written your book yet?

The short answer is no. This conversation today and thinking about it, you sparked it. That’s on my list to do, but I started getting my thoughts together and I’m thinking, “I need to get started on this.” You’ve helped in the process. When it does come out, I need to recognize the fact that you helped in the process.

We’re only doing all we know to do at any given moment. I like to surround my life with people like you that are like, “How can we make a difference?” I know what’s in it for me. Zig even said that everybody is carrying a sign, “What’s in it for me?” I don’t seem to have that. I’m always like, “How can I make a difference for you?” My mama said, “Leave the world a better place.” She did this by her actions and her children. You leave the world a better place. Leave things better than you found them.


TCAS 14 | Purpose And Passion


Think about the next person when you leave your trash on a table or an airplane. I was a flight attendant. We go down the aisle with bags, but we walk off and the plane is filthy. Why would you do that? You’ll make the world a better place if you wipe the sink. These are tiny little things to make you think about somebody or a human being somewhere in this world who has to clean up after you if you leave a mess.

I always try to keep things nicer for the next person in hotel rooms. I’m not certain that’s being taught well in our world. It’s like, “Who else cares? Somebody else will pick up my litter or my trash or wipe my tables.” I don’t know why I got off on all of that with this. You’ve got such a great story going, but I believe that’s who you are. You leave the world a better place. Love the person in front of you, no matter what. Be kind, give a smile, or buy a candy bar. Do something that lifts them up. I have something I said recently. I was like, “When I walk somewhere, I want the light to shine brightly so that they feel compelled, touched, and uplifted.”



That’s what it’s all about.

We’ve connected because that’s who you are. I know for a fact. What’s next with you guys? Are you building a coaching business? Are you going to write a book? What else is going on with you? You’ll be on stage. You are doing events. Didn’t you do an event?

We finished up with an event. It’s our first one here in Arlington. It was a destination event. It revolves around coaching at AT&T Stadium. Some of the players from Friday Night Lights that my husband coached came as guests. Those who came were able to interact and ask questions. It was very successful. Great speakers.

AT&T Stadium was not a small first event.

The event was at a hotel because we had maybe 100 people in attendance, but the day prior to the actual summit, we had what we called a VIP tour at AT&T Stadium. That’s where we went on a personal VIP Tour, then we had a wonderful buffet at the stadium club because these were people from all over the country. They never had the opportunity to see AT&T Stadium. My husband is starting a twelve-week mentoring program online.

Who’s the audience? Who’s the target for that?

The target is anyone who is interested in mentoring and building their legacy. It’s on Facebook. It’s not geared toward young children or anything like that. This is for business owners, business leaders, and anyone who is at a point where they feel they want to make a difference, but they need to have coaching skills and mentoring skills. He has put together a twelve-week online mentoring program that he’s going to take them through. It’s based on his book, Friday Night Lights: Untold Stories From Behind The Lights. He has this curriculum that’s online mentoring that he’s doing.

TCAS 14 | Purpose And Passion
Friday Night Lights: Untold Stories from Behind the Lights

Is there a limited number?

Not at this time. We’re still able to enroll, but they could go to our website to get some information on it, or they can go to Friday Night Lights: Untold Stories From Behind The Lights, the Facebook page. It has the information on that.

Is it primarily for men or does it matter?

It doesn’t matter. There are some women who are enrolled in it, so men and women.

That would be a true gift. I can’t imagine being mentored by anybody better than Coach Hearne and Callie Hearne.

Thank you for that.

You guys are amazing. Your presence is calming. There’s no nervousness. I believe when you walk in a place that it has that effect as well. There’s no drama, no anything artificial. It’s all authentic. You can’t get better than that. Is there any last word you want to leave us with?

It’s been fun. I hope those who tune in to this had as much fun as I did because I can talk about my purpose forever. I love to do that. Thank you and your audience for your time.

I’m grateful too. I know that you’re the wind beneath the wing. You’re the one that you guys work together, but he’s the one that shows on stage. I’m grateful we could have included him and that he gets to watch his wife shine on the stage like this for a change. You’ve got the gift as well. I’m sure there are people out there who would love to have you on their stages as well. You would do public speaking.

I want to toss out a couple of things here. Sponsorship is a different thing in my estimation. is a global platform, the first interactive women’s platform that’s global. It’s a great platform for anyone who would like to have a TV show. Podetize is going to be my podcast. Amazing people that I would love. Mention my name or go to my website and find the banner that has some of those. These are a few of my favorite things. That’s what I call it. I love a product I have used since 2011, a company that’s based in Irving, Texas. Zeal Wellness. It’s superfood nutrition. Zurvita is the company. That word means the risen life in Latin.

We’ve got a brain memory coffee thing. When you’re with a company for fifteen years, it’s because of integrity. I am there because of the integrity of the leadership and then the excellence of uncompromised products. Course Platform Academy helped me build my website. George lives support every week and all kinds of stuff. I now own my website and don’t have to worry about that. That’s a huge piece to me.

Beyond Publishing. I’m getting my book republished. All of my books are going to be relaunched. Candy Bar and Hugs will be relaunched into bestseller status. I wrote it five years ago and post-sell published it. We’re going to launch it out in a bigger way. The other two books are coming out. Beyond Publishing, Michael Butler. Those are a few of my favorite things that are making a difference in my world. It’s time. Thank you so much, Callie. I’m grateful to you. As I always end, choose joy.

Thank you. Bye.
