with Christine Garde, Natasha Todorovic-Cowan, and Cheri Blair

Today we have three amazing guests join us to discuss living a life of purpose and solutions for women in transitions.

Our first guest, Christine Garde, shares some inspirational stories about her prior work with gang members in South San Diego and also some of her current work in Mozambique, Africa where she focuses on two primary needs: education and feminine hygiene.

Our second guest, Natasha Todorovic-Cowan, discusses how too much has been made of a thin generation gap but not enough of a very real and wide communication gap, and the elements organizational leaders need to get the most out of their people.

Our newest sponsor, Cheri Blair with MJL & Associates, has been serving and empowering women, pre-retirees, business owners, and their families with financial services for over 23 years. Today she talks with us about how women can take control of their finances and avoid “Bag Lady Syndrome.”

Transition Radio Show

Transition Radio Show with Ken D Foster and Paula Shaw
Ken D Foster and Paula Shaw
Transition Radio...because everyone is either moving away from something or going toward something. Life is full of changes and with every change comes loss, even if it is a positive change like moving to a better home or getting married. Whenever change comes something must be upheaved or left behind and that creates loss and the normal, natural response to loss and grief.
Our show seeks to give you the information and the tools to make the changes you're going through smoother, easier and more life-enhancing. We look forward to you joining us on Transition Tuesday each week where we promise hot topics, engaging guests and always laughter and fun.
