Reaching For The Gold, October 22, 2013
Olga Paz is experienced in reading Tarot cards which might not grant us a clear view of exactly what routes we will be taking but might provide us with some guidance. Ben Bressington, meanwhile, has made gamification or game mechanics his main talking point. It helps people apply game design thinking to non-game situations so these endeavors become more fun and engaging than might otherwise be the case. Can virtually anybody succeed in business without really trying simply by following his guidelines?
Having these two guests together on the same show brings to mind some interesting questions. Are the challenges that we pass through - both in our personal and in our business lives - nothing more than a game we all must learn to play. Or, is our past, present and future written in the (Tarot) cards? And if the latter is the case, are just working our way through the hands we are dealt?

Guest, Olga Paz
Olga Paz, MSc, GPCC, BCC, is a Gestalt Certified Professional Coach, Tarot Master and a Certified Reiki I and II Practitioner. She is a licensed Conflict Resolution Facilitator and a licensed Facilitator of Women’s Empowerment groups.
Olga encourages clients to utilize the Tarot as a practical tool not as something esoteric which exists in another realm far removed from their every day life. Through her guidance they come to realize the Tarot can help them gain a greater awareness of life’s complexities and of their own core self. And as that happens they begin to view their options more clearly and objectively; they are “empowered.”
