#143 Beth Bengtson is Working for Women

Beth Bengtson believes that real change happens when business talent supports non-profit missions, when women achieve economic independence, and personal passion meets organizational focus! She started WorkingForWomen (W4W) to provide a new operating structure that taps into all these pillars.

She learned the power of purpose-driven business practices through years of education and professional experience. She has an MBA from Schiller International University in Paris, France, and a BS in management from Penn State University; and is certified in empowerment design and facilitation through the Empowerment Institute. She has spent 20 years in leadership roles on the agency side and in-house at organizations large and small, facilitating change through communications internally and externally. Her focus is on helping organizations evolve and be purpose-driven.

Her work is strengthened by an energetic family – two adolescent boys, two dogs, and her husband – biking, hiking, skiing, and kayaking. Any remaining free time is spent with friends or alone in nature.

Beth says the key to success is taking baby steps toward your goals each day.

Today we talk about how she’s fared personally during the pandemic, the state of women’s issues/work and funding, what she’s up to at W4W and taking care of our shared outdoor spaces. You can learn more about and make a donation to the Wallkill Valley Land Trust here.

#120 MK Burnell “More Music Podcast: Quarantine Beat”

Still in quarantine, still making it happen!

Today’s guest is MK Burnell, host of the brand new podcast More Music Please: Quarantine Beat, where she chats with music industry professionals about life during COVID… and whatever else comes up. Until the pandemic shook things up, she was a radio host and music director with a particular passion for supporting local and emerging artists. She lives outside of Kingston with her partner and dogs. When not in lockdown, she performs with bands Locofreeq, Uncledad and Cold Flavor Repair.

We check in about how she’s doing during the pandemic, how she got through being let go from her radio host gig mid quarantine, starting a podcast, some of her favorite musicians like Lana Del Rey and Taylor Swift, making music with her bands, mindfulness and hiking. So good.

We listened to a favorite song of MK’s, “13 Beaches” by Lana Del Rey.

Tune into her podcast, new episodes released every Monday!

Today’s show was engineered by Manuel Blas of Radio Kingston, www.radiokingston.org.

We heard music from our fave, Shana Falana, http://www.shanafalana.com/

#119 Shannon Donnell “NYC Nurse on the Frontline”

The one and only, Shannon Donnell is my very special guest today. Shannon is a nurse on the front lines in NYC right now, but she had three days off last week and graciously gave me some of that time for an interview to hear how things are going for her out there. You may know Shannon from her years of running the clinic for the O+ Festival She’s a multitalented musician, vocalist and big-hearted, brave nurse making a huge difference in people’s lives!

Shannon walks us through becoming a nurse, the various iterations of roles she’s taken on as a hospice nurse and travel nurse up to her current role on the front lines during this pandemic. She indulges my curiosity around lung health and explains the term of the day, pulmonary toileting. Yep! And Shannon agrees, “our lungs are amazing!” She gives us a little tutorial on breathing for good lung health and shares her recommendations for reopening, hint…think like a nurse and wash your hands. Of course we get a little philosophical, talk about self care, the state of the healthcare system, a new economy, and gush over our mutual adoration for Jim James of My Morning Jacket.

Thank you Shannon! We’re thinking of YOU!!!

Here’s O+’s Facebook Page where you can find more information about the Loving Kindness Meditations which will likely be happening on Fridays going forward. I’m subbing this Friday! 2pm Eastern. Here’s the Zoom link to join. The Mental Health Hotline can be found on their website here.

Here’s my article of the oft referenced, “Epic Elimination Diet

To all the podcast listeners who want to cry with the songs, here you go!

“Look at You” by My Morning Jacket

In the infinitely wise words of Jim James from “Wonderful (The Way I Feel)“:

“I’m going where there ain’t no fear
I’m going where the spirit is near
I’m going where the living is easy
And the people are kind
A new state of mind

I’m going where the ain’t no police
I’m going there ain’t no disease
I’m going where there ain’t no need
To escape from what is
Only spirits at ease”
