I was so looking forward to meeting this fascinating and inspiring man! Our values are aligned and I always find it remarkable when someone has an awakening at a young age. Any age younger than me is young, okay! We all have the propensity to learn these lessons if we pay attention. I believe that Lou is an inspiration because he listened. He reacted. He acted. Look at him now!
“I do yoga, read, and travel. This past 18 months I’ve been to 3 countries on travel retreats that focus on volunteering and adventure.I’m currently working on finishing up my book project. It tells the story of my personal transformation and how I quit my 9-5 to pursue my passion. I’m also very passionate about meditation and working on creating ways to help people in their practice and promote it’s benefits.”

Tinsel Town Live with Miz Meliz featuring Anna Anna Hodges Oginskyhttps://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime
When I asked Anna what she does for fun when she isn’t working, she said, “I’m a mom of three active kids, so fun for me is driving them from place to place after school. Just kidding!”
Anna loves yoga, reading, writing, hiking, and making art. She loves to travel. She loves being outside. Anna is into daydreaming. She says, “I love a hot cup of coffee with a good book, or better yet a good friend.”
When I asked her to tell me what she is most passionate about, Anna said, “I am passionate about feelings! Specifically, grief. As I promote my book, My New Friend, Grief, I am offering brave, safe spaces for people to discuss grief. Generally speaking, we don’t do that in our culture. We want people to “”get over it””. I want to encourage people to sit with it, with no judgment, for as long as it takes. In that process of sitting with anything, we give ourselves the opportunity to hear from our wisest counsel: ourselves. My work centers around creating space for people to tune into one’s inner wisdom.”

I look forward to speaking with Anna Oginsky about her book and discussing what it is like to live with grief, grieving, loss, all the losses, and ways to cope – because I have a feeling we will hit it off famously!
Grab a cup of coffee and join us as we talk about our lives, our feelings, and what inspires us to keep going and keep smiling.

Interview with Anna N Schlegel author of Truly Global on Tinsel Town Live @annapallona https://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime
Anna N. Schlegel
Tuesday, November 15, 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time
Anna Schlegal likes to swim, travel, go to the beach, hang out with her family, and watch Netflix! When she isn’t doing all of that awesome stuff – she is pretty much taking over the World! Well, she did just write the book, Truly Global, so I imagine taking over the world is on her bucket list! Let’s find out when we talk to her on Tinsel Town Live with Miz Meliz.
In Truly Global, Anna explains how companies can be really successful abroad, and see their business grow internationally. As a Senior Director of Engineering, she has just published, Truly Global – which, as she puts it, “explains all the pieces of the puzzle for an enterprise to enter international markets successfully.”
I don’t think I will ever be the corporate CEO I dreamed about being when I was taking Marketing 101 in community college in the 80’s – but, I do know that I can be my own boss and run an international business online. We are a global community and we live in a global economy. Even the beginning entrepreneur with hopes of making it big with a product or service that can be marketed abroad should learn about those pieces of the puzzle that fit together to spell s-u-c-c-e-s-s!
Anna’s book can be used by marketing professionals who want to see how all those pieces should fit together when operating a corporate globalization strategic team. However, her insights are meant to carry over to the classroom as topics for discussion and to explore models that have worked in high level Fortune 100 American enterprises. The small, succinct chapters are easy to read and come across like a guidebook. Join me as I discover more about Anna Schlegel and why she wrote Truly Global. Please submit any questions you might have for Anna in the comments.
anna-schlegel-1Whether it’s a desire to reach new markets, lower costs, or increase profits, more businesses are going global today than ever before. But while technology is allowing international barriers to crumble more quickly, that doesn’t mean globalization is easy. According to Anna Schlegel—dubbed “the first globalization innovator” by SDL/Fortune—most companies don’t understand what it takes for a product to be successful in multiple countries.
“There are a number of new disruptors that are impacting today’s globalization teams,” says Schlegel, author of Truly Global. “How we consume content is key. Consumers move from path to path with low attention spans, and this impacts the success of globalization activities. Enterprises must understand target markets, because their attention spans will continue to shrink.”
Schlegel discusses these topics and more as her book, Truly Global, sparks the conversation about going global:
The key actions a company must focus on to begin their path to global success
How to connect with consumers in different markets: the key to localization
The biggest challenges for every organization looking to expand culturally and globally
Her effective strategy for organizing employees to go global and work in a cohesive virtual team
Various models for enterprise globalization, how they work, and which style yields the best results
A global content strategy that will help your company localize to any number of markers and locations

Tinsel Town Live Interview with Dr. Margaret Robinson Rutherford about Perfectly Hidden Depression and her new podcast, “Self Work” https://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime
Tuesday, November 8, 2016 6:00 PM Pacific Time
I came across Dr. Rutherford on Instagram of all places! I reached out to her and found that I could relate to what she was saying and I wanted to know more. I am honored that she agreed to talk with me on my show, Tinsel Town Live – she is a shining star because she gives hope to people who are suffering from a silent state of depression and anguish. Her work will change lives and relationships. She inspires me and I am looking forward to hearing her story.
I asked Dr. Rutherford to tell me about her work:
“I’ve been researching and writing about a syndrome, or group of behaviors that can be typically found together, I call Perfectly Hidden Depression. It’s not a diagnosis, per se, but a way of identifying an entirely different experience of depression, one that can be misdiagnosed or missed by mental health professionals. The people who experience it are highly driven, they have lots of friends, they’re caring and involved, they believe in counting their blessings. But somehow, along the way, they’ve learned to not admit or reveal pain. And so they hide depression that can eventually lead them to suicidal thinking. The loneliness and exhaustion can become intolerable.”
Dr. Margaret Rutherford is a clinical psychologist who’s been in practice for over 20 years in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Thus far, her work on PHD(perfectly hidden depression) has appeared on The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, Psychologies (UK), The Mighty, Midlife Boulevard, Better After 50, and Sixty and Me, either through posts or interviews.
