According to Bill Treasurer, Chief Encouragement Officer at Giant Leap Consulting, Inc., Aristotle called courage the first virtue because it makes all the other virtues possible.

On my show, Bill, author of Courage Goes to Work, will discuss the three types of courage, the relationship between courage and fear and tips for building your courage muscles.
You’ve made up your mind—this is the year when you are going to make some major wellness changes. Now you just need to figure what to do and how to do it! Do you need to change your diet? Change your exercise routine? Change your lifestyle? Or maybe you need to change all three!

Traditionally, the end of the year is when we review the accomplishments of past 12 months and then focus on goals we want to achieve in the coming year. But there is another kind of review that you might have overlooked—a review of your insurance policies to make sure you have adequate coverage at a price that isn’t breaking your budget. On today’s show, Loretta Worters of the Insurance Information Institute, will explain what you need to consider when selecting insurance coverage and why shopping by price alone might not be the best way to choose your insurance provider.
"Thank you for the opportunity to be on your show. Your thoroughness and professionalism ensured that your listeners received important information about insurance to help them take positive charges in their financial lives."

with guest Susan Kraus, MS, RD and and Chef Franz Klampfer of Hackensack University Medical Center Listen to the recorded show
If just the thought of all those plates of cookies and candies, trays of appetizers and bowls of eggnog is already creating an uncomfortable tightness in your waistline area, take heart. It’s possible to enjoy the holiday (and all the celebrating that goes with it) without wrecking your diet or your health. On today’s show, registered dietician Susan Kraus, MS of Hackensack University Medical Center will share her tips for healthy eating during the holidays. And, as a special treat, Hackensack’s own Chef Franz Klampfer will offer a selection of good-for-you recipes!
"It was such a pleasure and wonderful opportunity for me to be a guest on the Take Charge of Your Life Show with Nancy Christie. I am always glad to share ideas and recommendations with others; what better way to reach hundreds of people then through this helpful on line program. Nancy is a wonderful host to work with, and with what her program offers, it is so positive to see people inspired and helped by what topics and themes that are offered."
Do you have the uncomfortable feeling that maybe you aren’t playing your “A game”? Do you sense that there are areas in your life where you are just getting by, when you’re capable of doing so much more? Are there ways where you can make a difference in the world, but you are resisting the challenge? On today’s show, James Rick Stinson, author of the Full Potential book series, will discuss why you should strive to live up to your full potential and how important balance is in living a fully realized life.
"Working with Nancy was a real pleasure. She conducts herself with a high degree of professionalism; from early preparation to execution she is on top of her game. I appreciated the opportunity of sharing the Full Potential (FullPotential.com) philosophy with her and her radio listeners and I look forward to the opportunity of working with her in the future."
Holidays are a time when everyone gets together—and sometimes, all this closeness can get to be a little too much. From the cousin who can’t resist a game of one-upmanship or the uncle whose jokes aren’t quite fit for mixed company to the mother-in-law who finds fault with every part of the meal, family get-togethers can be less enjoyable than one might like. But today’s guest, Wendy Behary, author of Disarming the Narcissist, will offer tips for dealing with difficult people so that everyone can celebrate the holiday season.
“I have done over 40 interviews this year, and yours was one of the most fun, and one of the most comprehensive! Your questions were smart, thoughtful, and demonstrated a lot of fine-tuned insight and keen direction, making the flow of information very clear and accessible for me and, I am sure, for your listeners too. Your warm interactive style made it feel like I was having a dialogue with a special friend. Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to share my work with you and your listeners. And remember...Sometimes the beauty of life can take our breath away, leaving us speechless. But no one person should ever make us feel so small or so dismissed as to take our voice away.”
Does the thought of the upcoming holiday season fill you with dread instead of joy? Are you having trouble figuring out what to buy for everyone on your gift-giving list? Don’t settle for the same-old, same-old but instead give gifts that have meaning, that are good for the environment or can benefit more than just the recipient. On today’s show, lifestyle expert Korey Provencher will offer a sleigh-full of holiday ideas to make your shopping less stressful. We’ll also talk about ways to make the entire holiday season more meaningful for you and your loved ones.
"Nancy finds a way to deliver information that is uplifting, helpful, and fun. 'Take Charge of Your Life' is must-listen radio for the modern age."
Be honest: do you push yourself to your highest level at home or at work, or are you settling for doing just enough to get by? Does your “performance” earn you an encore or just perfunctory applause? More importantly, are you aware that a commitment to extraordinary achievement on your part can have a positive impact on the lives of those around you? It’s not enough to have the “goods.” You have to know how to deliver them. And on my Nov. 25th show, internationally-known speaker Mark Sanborn, president of Sanborn & Associates, Inc. and author of seven books including his latest, The Encore Effect: How to Achieve Remarkable Performance in Anything You Do, will share with us the keys to becoming the best that we can be. Mark’s insights will help shift us from ordinary to extraordinary, from routine to remarkable, in every facet of our lives—at work and at home!
Have you been toying with idea of being your own boss? Does the idea of having your own business seem more and more like the right way to go? Do you long to be the one calling the shots and giving the orders? While self-employment might sound appealing, there’s a lot to consider—not the least of which is whether you have what it takes to be the boss. As Dennis Kelley, author of Achieving Unlimited Success points out, “The transition to self-employment is one that you do not want to do without being prepared and educated as to what you should expect.” On my Nov. 11th show, Dennis will cover what you need to evaluate before you dive into entrepreneurial waters including your finances, your style and the self-limiting beliefs that can get in your way.
“Working with Nancy was a real pleasure. She made the process very easy and Nancy does a terrific job drawing information out of her guests. Her ‘Take Charge of Your Life’ program is loaded with wonderful content and is a wealth of information for anyone looking to make positive change in life. I highly recommend Nancy and her ‘Take Charge of Your Life’ program as the source for anyone seeking to create a more fulfilling and satisfying life.”
Is the daily challenge of life zapping your energy? Do the demands of work and home leave you feeling chronically stressed? Do you have trouble bouncing back from upsets and setbacks? You might think the solution is to do more but according to Sandy Davis, author of Zillience!—How to succeed in business without really trying, it might be time for you to focus on backing off, slowing down and taking care of yourself. On my Nov. 4th show, Sandy will explain the difference between resilience and “zillience” and explain why zillience is so critical to our state of well-being.
Are you feeling overloaded, overwhelmed and just plain burned out? Has your “To Do” list stretched to two pages or maybe even more? Do you get the feeling that “the faster you go, the more behinder you get”?
What you need is some time to recharge, refresh and rejuvenate—all part of the “Zero-Tasking Day” celebration on November 2.

Your checking account is overdrawn—again. Your credit cards are maxed out—again. And you’re broke—again.
If this sounds like you, if you don’t know what to do to stop your financial tailspin, if you’re sick and tired of being scared and broke, you need help.

“Great show and Nancy does a terrific interview. She asks thoughtful questions and knows her stuff!”
The saying “fences make good neighbors” isn’t just about avoiding neighborhood disputes. Establishing personal boundaries (even with those you love) not only protects the relationship but also your own psychological and emotional health. Problems arise, however, when you fail to set boundaries—or worse, when you don’t even realize that you have the right to do so. You end up feeling taken advantage of or, in the worst-case scenario, find yourself on the receiving end of emotional, psychological or physical abuse. On my upcoming show, Dianne Schwartz, founder of Educating Against Domestic Violence and author of Whose Face Is In The Mirror? will explore the concept of boundary-setting: how, when and where to set them and when it’s okay to make a change in your personal “property line.”
“I've been interviewed hundreds of times and a show host like Nancy Christie is rare. She researches her topic and asks questions that aren't normally explored, giving the topic much more relevance.”

Melanie will talk about how she found the ability to persevere, what it takes to develop and maintain a positive outlook and what advice she has for others who are facing their own personal “Olympic trial.”
It’s not enough to just send out your resume when job-hunting. You need to figure out what you want and understand what you bring to the table. On our upcoming show, consultant and energy coach Laura George, author of Excuse Me, Your Job is Waiting, Attract the Work You Want, will explain how to use the Law of Attraction and why knowing your overall value is even more important than knowing your skill set when it comes to job-hunting and career development.
“Nancy Christie is a marvelous host who is honestly interested in the value her guests bring to her show. As an experienced interviewer, Nancy asks questions that are relevant and extracts information that benefits her listeners.”
It’s not enough to just live to a ripe old age. We want to be able to live fully and enjoy every moment of our life—in short, not just add years to our life but life to our years as well. On my upcoming show, Dr. Eric Plasker, author of The 100 Year Lifestyle, will provide us with the information we need to enhance the health, vitality and quality of our life.

When it comes to making life changes, very often it’s a case of learning to say “yes” to opportunities that present themselves. But too many “yeses” can overload our time, eat up our energy and wear out our health. Sometimes, the best thing we can do to generate forward movement is to stop saying “yes” and start saying “no,” basing our decision on what is in our own best interest at the time. If you find it difficult to know when you should accede to a request and when it’s time to voice a refusal, then tune into my upcoming show. My guest will be master certified coach Marian Baker (aka “The Queen of Powerful Questions”) and author of Wake Up Inspired, who will provide us with a framework for evaluating demands on our time, energy and spirit.
“Thanks for having me as a guest on your show. Your energetic spirit, authenticity and commitment to delivering true value for your listeners is obvious.

We know how important it is to enjoy a nutritious diet, exercise regularly and get plenty of rest. And it all sounds so simple. Yet even when we are ready to make the changes needed to improve our health, we might find it difficult to know exactly what to do. High-carb or low-carb? Aerobics or weight-training? Eight hours of sleep or more—or less?
