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:
🐃 be more like buffalo and less like cows (and why)

🤔 consider (and replace) your internal B.S. (not the swear version!)

📖model our lives from Moses, Joshua, and Caleb

💭 create new beliefs and thought patterns

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

🌴 glean wisdom from the SC state flag and FL hurricanes

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

🥇replace willpower (which will always fail you!) so you can succeed once and for all

Tune in to listen and learn.🎧

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

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).

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.”

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.
