This is episode 111 of the Pam Sowder Podcast, with your host, Pam Sowder! Pam has over 2 decades of field and corporate experience and was voted one of the most influential women in direct selling. She helps match the daily needs of distributors to everyday life challenges.

Listeners: you’re in luck once again! Pam is joined by special guest, Denise Walsh, for the second time on the podcast! Denise is a Black Diamond with It Works! Global (which means she has achieved a feat. that only TWO others in the company have accomplished!) She has reached a position which requires that you earn an excess of $100,000/month for six months in a row! But Denise is so much more than her status; she has also written several incredible books, such as, Retire Your Husband: A Mom’s Guide to Making Millions With Network Marketing and Design Your Dream Life: An Inspired Action Plan for Getting Unstuck and Becoming Your Best Self. Her most recent book, Dream Life Teen Journal, is an incredible guide for teens, but after listening to today’s episode, you’ll want to grab a copy for yourself!

In this episode, Pam and Denise are talking about Denise’s newest book and the important lessons your teenager (and YOU!) can learn from it. Denise shares many of the key points and lessons on affirmations, visualizations, creating small action steps every day to stay consistent, and overcoming self-doubts and limiting beliefs. She also shares a ton of practical advice and wisdom on how you can begin to step into your power and take ownership of your actions and mindset so that you can achieve the success that you’re after!
