The Inspired Way

Frannie Foltz – Entrepreneur, Connector, Coach, & Daughter of the King

My brother, (in Christ) Tim Douglas of The Inspired Way podcast dropped some major truth bombs during our time together.

We dove in head first into some topics that will definitely serve listeners.

We chatted up a storm about how to:
ūüźÉ be more like buffalo and less like cows (and why)

ūü§Ē consider (and replace) your internal B.S. (not the swear version!)

ūüďĖmodel our lives from Moses, Joshua, and Caleb

ūüí≠ create new beliefs and thought patterns

ūüõĎ stop praying for God to change our problems (and what to pray instead)

ūüĆī glean wisdom from the SC state flag and FL hurricanes

ūüĎÄ find interdependence among the ingredients of our soul (and identify them!)

ūü•áreplace willpower (which will always fail you!) so you can succeed once and for all

Tune in to listen and learn.ūüéß

Oh, and subscribe and follow Tim–he’s full of inspiration and tools to help others be their best!

Work in Progress

Did you know that the average millennial will undergo more than 10 career changes–not job changes–that’s full-blown career shifts.

Since this is such a buzz topic, twin sisters, Dana and Angela, tech queens from the Bay Area turned their curiosity of this big idea into a blog idea then into a full-blown podcast! #goalgetters

Recently I was a guest on their @work_in_progress_blog Podcast and dove into how I transitioned from a teacher to educational administrator to a corporate project manager and now to a solopreneur after being let go from my job in February.

These innovators have fascinating stories of how others have made dramatic shifts in their professional worlds–it is definitely worth previewing and subscribing, as the inspiration is endless when you hear where some have been which lead them to where they are.

The DC Experiment: Female Perspective On Dating

After listening to Dennis and Caleb’s podcast about dating from a guy’s perseptive, I reached out to them to offer a female perspective of a 45-year-old-singleton (never been married).

Let me just tell you, dating as a Christian woman in 2020 is not for the faint-hearted.  

I shared the crazy, roundabout ways of my dating life and how I’ve navigated detours, dead ends, and and one way streets.

Job Reinvented

In my chat with Pantea about Leveling Up Your Career with Confidence, we chatted about the following:

‚ĀČÔłŹIn Bali, ‚ÄúNO‚ÄĚ is infrequently used; instead they have a two-word alternative

3ÔłŹ‚É£The 3 traits I believe entrepreneurs need to be successful.

ūüĆī What living in FL during hurricane season has taught me about entrepreneurship.

ūüĒõA lesson I learned from a Peleton coach that helps me keep pressing on in my business when I encounter failure.

ūüÜôHow to leverage your network=NET WORTH

‚ĚĆThe mistakes I‚Äôve made as an entrepreneur that lead me to relaunch Shine in March 2020.

  • always do this when pitching
  • the significance of Matt 5:14-16 and Rev 12:11 for faith-based entrepreneurs

You have what you need to start!

After numerous affirmations from God, I started my podcast this year.
I had no clue what I was doing, and I am still learning all. of. the. time.

I share content that God places on my heart and that listeners respond is helpful to them becoming healthier and stronger, spirit, soul and body. If you’ve listened,¬†thank you from the bottom of my¬†heart.

In just a few months, I hit 3,000 plays. That might not seem like a lot compared to other podcasts, but guess what? That’s 3000X ¬†people¬†that have heard The Good News¬†that may¬†not have if I hadn’t stepped out to do something I’ve never done nor knew how to do!

I made a quick 15 second video to show some highlights over the last few months. I found it appropriate to share this song to go with it: Waka Waka by Shakira.

You’re a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up and dust yourself off
And back in the saddle
You’re on the front line
Everyone’s watching
You know it’s serious, we are getting closer
This isn’t over
The pressure’s on, you feel it
But you got it all, believe it
When you fall, get up, oh oh
And if you fall, get up, eh eh

Listen to your God, this is our motto
Your time to shine, don’t wait in line
People are raising their expectations
Go on and feed them, this is your moment
No hesitations
Today’s your day, I feel it
You paved the way, believe it

Dear Lee, I pray this speaks to you and prompts you to keep pressing on and¬†perhaps¬†launch out to doing that thing you don’t yet know¬†how to do. Someone is¬†waiting for you.

You’re getting closer.¬†
You’ve got it all.¬†
Believe it.
Listen to Our God. 
This is our motto.
Go and feed them.

It’s your time to shine.¬†

an I pray for you

 

“Prayer is powerful. It can heal, prayer can give, and it can change lives.”
Shane DeCreshio

Please let me know how I can pray for you, dear one.
Simply reply to this message with your request.

P.S. The entire month of June I am sharing¬†scripture to “Move & Memorize” from the Song of Solomon.I read and unpack a verse or two then pray over you. This is another way to¬†hear and receive prayer, dear one. ¬†Tune in to the Shine with¬†Frannie¬†Show by clicking the button below or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Do you hate your thighs? Belly? or...?

What do you see?

Did you know that you can only see 70% of your body without using a mirror?

Yep.¬†You can’t see your eyes, ears, neck, or how about¬†the back of that funky-looking-messy-bun you fashioned up in the back!!?

Do you tend to see 70% or 30% as body-beautiful?

Do you loathe and hate or celebrate and appreciate your precious and Holy Temple, Lee?

It’s time to see,¬†love, and accept¬†yourself¬†100% the way that God sees you!¬†

You are beloved, cherished, appointed, beautiful and so much more! I pray this over you, dear one.

You are a wonderfully, divinely designed vessel of love and light.

Shine your light brightly as you enter this new week!

Have you ever asked God, "Why is this happening?"

A  Season of Breaking

Have you ever questioned God, “What on earth are You doing?”

When we encounter times in life where we just don’t get–
why the adversity, why the struggle, why the ____ you fill in the blank.

I want to remind you that Papa prunes to provide a plentiful harvest.

“He cares for the branches connected to me
by lifting and propping up the fruitless branches
and¬†pruning every fruitful branch to yield a greater harvest.”
John 15:2 TPT

If you feel like you’re currently “breaking”, focus on the bigger picture–God is¬†breaking the “dead” things and¬†habits (or people)¬†so He can bring you closer to your destiny.¬†

And here’s a coaching reframe for ya, Lee.
Instead of asking Our Father, “What are You doing?” or “Why is this happening?”¬†

Ask:¬†“What fruit do you desire to produce in me during this season?”

Breaking bears fruit.

Do this to start your week empowered!

Replacing lies with Truth

Ya know¬†the game “2 Facts & a Lie”?
Well, let’s play a quick round, only using the inverse–“2 Lies & 1¬†Fact.”

Which of these is the fact?

  1. Exercise is an opportunity to punish myself for last night’s eating choices.
  2. My body is the Holy Spirit’s home.
  3. When I get to (insert goal weight/size) I will be happy.

If you responded with #2, you are correct!

This is confirmed in 1 Corin 6:19-20. I love the Message translation of this passage:

“…your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit?
Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please,
squandering what God paid such a high price for?
The physical part of you is not some piece of property
belonging to the spiritual part of you. God owns the whole works.
So let people see God in and through your body.”¬†

So good, right?!

But you know what, Lee? The other two statements are blatant lies that our culture tries to brainwash us through messaging and¬†marketing all. day. long. And do you know where they came from? The biggest liar himself, in fact, he’s the¬†father of lies–satan! (John 8:44)

Well this is a very short list that has been¬†planted¬†and continually watered; I’m sure you have a¬†gazillion more to add to the list.

But do you know what’s so amazing?!? According to Christian¬†brain-researcher, Caroline Leaf, our brains can be¬†physiologically altered.¬†Truth! Within¬†just 4 days we can redirect negative thoughts¬†and turn them into positive ones!

As you prepare for a new week, I invite you to sit with Our Father and ask if there are any lies that need replaced by Truth.

Then find a scripture to fix your focus for the week ahead. By the end of the week, you can retrain your brain to think positive, life-giving, affirming thoughts rather than dark, destructive lies!

Message me on Friday and LMK what new thought you’re thinking!¬†

P.S. Last week I went on a tirade. I kung-fu kicked the devil in the crotch and let him know what a loser and liar he is. If you need a little extra motivation to start the week, I invite you to listen to episode #62 of the Shine with Frannie Show. You can click the link below or listen where ever you tune in to podcasts.
I pray it blesses you, dear one.

This book made me want to begin doing the things I put off:)

I just read this book and now I want to send a copy to everyone I know.
Frannie’s words resonate because she sees the essence of our souls just beneath the surface.
She shows us that we each have what it takes for big and small desires to be realized.
Frannie knows how to inspire us to be real.
I can think of a 100 real life scenarios where this book can help give the motivation and direction to help with self-awareness and to begin life-changing steps.
This book is terrific!

What people are saying:

“I was connected with Frannie through a mutual friend as someone who could help guide and mentor me on my entrepreneurial journey.  I had just left my day job and needed someone to help coach me as I navigated myself into the entrepreneurial world.  

As my coach she was very inspiring and empowering; she took the time to work with me 1:1 and really learned who I was as a person before learning about my business needs. She helped me identify my career goals and support me and my vision.  

Frannie held me accountable, and I was able to meet mini-goals and launch my business in a timely and successful manner.

Even though I am not actively working with Frannie any longer, she continues to check in and provide valuable and supportive feedback for my continued success.‚ÄĚ

In 2019 I had the pleasure of working with Frannie Foltz. I’m a food stylist and was hired multiple times by a company that Frannie worked for. She was responsible for keeping the creative team coordinated and on task for a variety of events. It is a hard thing to do when you are working in different time zones, with different personalities and different types of jobs. Frannie did it always with respect and professionalism but also with kindness! Her communication skills have allowed her to develop productive and nurturing working relationships with both co-workers and clients. I would highly recommend Frannie Foltz for any position that requires organization, speaking in front of the public and working with people with understanding and kindness! You will not find another person who has all the professional and organizational qualifications that Frannie Foltz can offer you.
