Megan Gorman On Making Tax and Wealth Planning Cool

Since I opened 2017 with an interview regarding health, I thought we’d open 2018 with a topic we all love – money.

Today’s guest is Megan Gorman, the Founding Partner of Chequers Financial Management, a boutique high net worth tax and financial planning firm. Chequers ensures that tax strategy serves as the cornerstone of the financial planning process (which is unusual in the industry, along with having a female founder.) In many cases, Chequers clients have come to the firm because of its reputation for strategy and premier client service. Chequers not only handles corporate clients, but also artists, athletes and more.

Prior to founding Chequers Financial, Megan worked at Goldman Sachs and BNY Mellon Wealth Management, where she provided financial planning services to high net worth families, and also served in a fiduciary capacity on large family trusts.

Megan’s expertise has seen her quoted in publications from the Wall Street Journal to The Washington Post to CNN Money.

Documentary Director Samantha Rife On the Stigmas of Motherhood

Today we’re talking about an upcoming documentary and social impact campaign covering a topic you probably wouldn’t expect to be covered – motherhood.

I never knew this myself, but mothers experience discrimination in the US, from deep-rooted assumptions about social or gender roles, for breastfeeding in public, and for not having a perfect body again after childbirth. Many women, particularly stay-at-home moms, become demoralized, feel alienated, and lose their personhood. They often lose their chance to return to their jobs.  Often, people judge them immediately when they say they are a full-time mom, assuming that they aren’t hard-working, that they aren’t intelligent or that they aren’t contributing members of society. Yet, they are molding society’s greatest assets – the next generation.

My guest is the wonderful Samantha Rife, the Director and Executive Producer of the documentary film “Reclaim Motherhood”. She will share with us her mission behind this film and the associated campaign which will target corporate HR departments as well as middle schools, high schools and universities.  You will hear examples of the struggles that mothers often face at work, with the government, and in their communities. She also shares the importance of bridging the gap between people who choose to be parents and those who choose to be childless.

Samantha is also the founder of SJR Research and for over 25 years, she has worked as a writer and researcher, and provided support for large and small projects in a wide variety of fields including History, Genealogy, Information Technology, Education, Writing/Editing, Film and Media, Communications, Marketing, Public Health/Social Services, managed Healthcare, Visual Arts, and much more. Samantha is a mother of 2 children – Joshua and Cassandra. She lives in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, with her husband Jamie.

Intuitive Metaphysical Healer Diandra Brand On Dealing with Energy Vampires

Do you ever feel drained or “off” after being around certain people? Do you suddenly feel depressed or agitated by someone, even when you were previously in a great mood? Then you could be in the midst of an energy vampire or the victim of a psychic attack. I experienced this myself quite recently and on separate occasions (both from a man and a woman – it’s not gender-specific), and I sought out an expert to help me remove their unwelcome energetic leeching. I now want to share this amazing resource to help anyone listening to successfully heal from people who steal their energy as well.

My wonderful guest is Diandra Brand, an intuitive metaphysical healer and the author of Enlightened Indigo Child, available at www.enlightenedindigochild.com and on Amazon. She is certified in an extensive number of alternative healing modalities and has integrated these with her clairvoyant abilities to create a highly developed intuitive metaphysical practice. Via communication with the angelic realm and Higher Self, she is able to focus in on her client’s concerns, and channel guidance for their highest good.

Her other abilities include channeling in energy for physical well being as well as serving as a medium for deceased loved ones. She is a successful telepathic communicator with pets and children who may be having challenging issues.

Diandra is a native New Yorker and sees clients in person or long distance through phone or Skype. She also has a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture.

In the show, Diandra shares important tips on how to know if you have an energy vampire around you, explains why you attract them in the first place, and provides important tips on how to protect yourself before seeing them – and how to reset yourself after you’ve been with them.
