  • OAC 339 Theres An Elephant In The Room??

    OAC 339 There's An Elephant In The Room??

    30/04/2020 Duração: 15min

    So I am always intrigued by expressions.  Where did they originate from and what in the world do they mean? I think most of us know what the expression 'Let's address the elephant in the room.' means, but what if you were not familiar with the phrase?  Wouldn't you be looking around for an elephant? What about the expression 'on a whim'?  What is a 'whim' and why would you anything on one? So I think you can see where I'm going with this.  As I did this show I tripped over a few more in just explaining this little language phenomenon. Wild ones that surprised me and new ones we wish we did not have. In conclusion I share some of my ideas on how to deal with our 'new norm' and how we might embrace life and others in a different way. All the times you see the expression, 'we're all in this together' may not seem fair to include you in your circumstances.  And my prayers go out to you.  But we truly are stuck in this situation together. I hope I give you just a glimmer of a smile and a bit of encouragement toda

    OAC 338 My Silly Moment!

    01/04/2020 Duração: 13min

    I'm sending this out to put a smile on your face and a chuckle in your voice.  I think we all need to have a few extra ones of those right now. This is one of my fun adventures that turned into a giggle fest that I cherish and love to share. I'd love to hear if you can relate to this funny one!  I know as I've personally shared this silly moment, many of us have experienced the same moment, just not with the same end results. I also want to re-iterate what we all need to feel right now - being connected.  Are you picking up the phone and saying Hi to someone you've not spoken to in a while or that you feel compelled to check on? I surprised myself by answering an email from someone I have not had any interest in connecting to in a life time of memories ago.  But it felt good to let the past fall away and to include that person who extended prayers to me.  Wild - I never thought I would ever do that. And, of course, I mention the one way that is easier for some people to reach out is to send a card, note, or

    In this crazy world of ours and I am grateful I got this done in February!  People are getting spring fever as they pray for spring fever.  And today's show is about just a few things I truly believe need repeating. If you have kids you will definitely relate to the title.  Listen in or watch the video version :-)    Watch Here :-) Hope to start doing 2 a month - so stay tuned and let me know if there is anything you feel bears repeating.

    OAC 336 Celebrating 6 years!

    28/01/2020 Duração: 16min

    Wow, wow, wow!  I cannot believe it's been 6 years since I accidentally launched my show.  Originally I called it,  "Gabbin' With Gail   grows YOUR business"The Gail Foley Show And it was all pink tones and a caricature of me on the site!  Until a new author suggested no one would take me seriously. Listen in to hear about the twists and turns that navigated me to adopting the name I have today! Crazy how we evolve, but it's the way we grow and stay fresh in what we do.  With a bazillion podcasts out there to choose from...THANK YOU for taking time to listen to mine. If you've been with me from the beginning I cannot thank you enough and if you're my newest subscriber, WOW you make my heart zing, too!  And I appreciate each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart!!! Passing On A Smile, Gail  P.S. Here's my first show:  

  • OAC 335 Why Do Geese WALK Across The Road?

    OAC 335 Why Do Geese WALK Across The Road?

    12/12/2019 Duração: 16min

    I'm really curious about this because they can FLY!!!  Wouldn't you fly everywhere if you could???  I'm thinking I would.  But then I started to think about it. You know my perspective is always a bit twisted, but I think if you listen to this show you might get some insight too.  Sometimes Mother Nature can give you some great ideas.  This is what the geese surprisingly did for me.  Going to an event I saw them waiting on the side of the road to cross - half a flock, I swear!  So I started pondering :-) Here's the audio version - video is getting some captions added and then I'll post that on FB, LI and of course on OAC!   I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for listening and maybe sharing a show or two.  My plans are to bring you more in 2020 - so stayed tuned as I ramp it up! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I will see you then! Passing On A Smile, Gail

    I'm sure you've heard by now that there are BIG changes coming to FaceBook and Instagram.  I was lucky enough to stumble across a webinar by Sammie English  with the scoop. Now I have to admit most of it was over my head, but I believe I got the jest of it.  So I hope you listen in to my take on it and would love your comments and insight.   Do you prefer what's coming?  Do you think it will make a difference on your activity on social media, increase or decrease your time commitment? Will you be able to target your niche better to get the interaction that moves you into the news feed more?  See lots of questions?  Here is the link to learn from this one expert: Please share this with those you feel might need to know.  If you like this Episode I will appreciate it, even if it's just me that sees it :-) Passing On A Smile, Gail 

  • OAC 333 Forgive and Move On!

    OAC 333 Forgive and Move On!

    30/09/2019 Duração: 15min

    This is a message that has been popping up in front of me for almost a month.  A personal situation has pushed me to acknowledging what evidently I need to hear. The Episode picture is of a card I was given at a 'Brainstorming event' recently.  And then I saw a post by my dear friend Lisa Bechtol that really was the pivotal point for me and why it became the title of this Episode. Because as her quote said, "Forgiving does not make it okay.  It simply means you're moving on." So today, I hope if you are dealing with conflict of the heart this will speak to you or you know someone that needs to hear it. Thank you so much for listening.  It means to the world to me. Passing On A Smile, Gail 

  • OAC 332 Are You Hearing Crickets?

    OAC 332 Are You Hearing Crickets?

    28/08/2019 Duração: 15min

    Common courtesy is all I'm asking for here!  That's what this show is all about.  How often are you left waiting and waiting for a return message?  Do you wait so long that you turn into a stalker trying to get a response? Well, I have and I don't like being that person, but I also hate hearing crickets!  I mean does it really take so much of someone's time to just answer back.  In all my many years of business practice that is the one thing I believed, at one time, was just a given.   In sales, I had to be the consistent itch to my advertisers making sure I got the ad, the new copy, the proof, the payment, etc.  Because I was responsible to the publication and wanted a paycheck for all my hard work. But today, and for the past 14 years I report only to myself.  As a network marketer I get a commission when I complete the sale, as in most sales position.  However, I don't have to report in to someone else first nor am I responsible for someone else's deadline or bottom line.   But it still stinks when someone

    Since it's the 4th of July you may put off listening to this wild broadcast - but I truly believe you'll enjoy my point of view. I am so excited to send it out without any show notes - cause you only have time to read or listen!  And I'd much rather you listen. Passing On A Smile, Gail   

  • OAC 330 Words and Memories!

    OAC 330 Words and Memories!

    03/06/2019 Duração: 15min

    I had written down several subjects to talk about today, but I researched my channel and oops, found out I talked on them way too many times already! So I went through my file of collected ideas.  Articles that spoke to me, ideas I had jotted down.  And the one article that grabbed me today was featured in the Sunday Morning Parade Magazine on March 15, 2015.  March 15th was my parent's anniversary - the Ides of March.  I should share that story some time :-) But today, it's about what this article shared in the power of our words and how they stir memories and bring back our past.  Some letters have changed the world.  In fact, that was the name of the article "Letters That Changed Our World." And I speak about it from my own personal perspective that hopefully will help you consider your own viewpoint on the subject. I've collected and kept cards and letters for years.  My mother and I, and now my daughter and I, get excited when we buy an old book and find a letter or note inside.  Or even that special ins

  • OAC 329 Gearing Up!

    OAC 329 Gearing Up!

    01/05/2019 Duração: 15min

    Let me share with you first why this title!  This quote spoke to me: "Life is like a ten-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use."  ~ Charles Schultz And boy do I ever fall into that category!  So many gears I do not use.  But I also realize it's because I'm not always in alignment with my joy.   Joy shows up when we are in a place that align with our souls, our values, our dreams. I heard 2 speakers today that brought all this profoundly in front of me and helped me realize my own very recent journey.  You may have seen what I've been sharing on Social Media for about 3 weeks!  Facebook  and LinkedIn  When you're in alignment with what you do life works.  Cynthia and I always talk about you have to love what you do to be successful.  And so you have to define what success is for you.  Is it feeling joy at the end of the day?  Feeling of knocking it out of the ballpark?  What is it that brings you true satisfied feelings of total accomplishment? These are the questions I  pose to you on this show.  I'v

  • OAC 328 The Dynamics of Our Lives!

    OAC 328 The Dynamics of Our Lives!

    05/04/2019 Duração: 13min

    Wow!  After I finished this one I knew there was so much more that I wished I had said... My daughter said the title sounded like a soap opera, got me thinking.  Maybe I'll do part II. Love to know what you think on that subject!! What I talk about in this episode is how we're happy in our lives, in the relationships, the job, etc and then someone new comes along.  That new 'awful' boss.  That new addition to your friend's group that just rubs you wrong.  Oooh, you get the picture, I'm sure! It is never fun to have the dynamics of our lives shifted because of someone or something else suddenly entering into your picture. I talk about my dynamics being disrupted and how I literally had to move on, for my own sanity.  And this subject has come to me because someone who has been absent in my life for a very long time has decided to come back into it. It's been a peaceful few years, now unfortunately this one person will change my life's dynamics with tension and anxiety.  If I allow that.    I can't and I won't,

  • OAC 327 Are You Sharing YOU?

    OAC 327 Are You Sharing YOU?

    20/03/2019 Duração: 20min

    One of my favorite quotes is: "If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it."  ~ Margaret Fuller And that is basically what the show is about today! Do you have a wealth of wisdom that you are not sharing? Oh, I know, you're thinking I'm not an expert at anything, why would anyone listen to me?  Please step back and re-access this.  Each and every one of us knows something someone else may not.  It doesn't have to be monumental.  It can simply be what I share the majority of time, my perspective. If I'm thinking about something and I run it past a friend or two it expands my world and gives them an avenue to know they have knowledge someone else needs. Sharing YOU is all about participating in your ongoing education of life.  It's very profound when you think about it.  Do you ever help a new employee get the ropes of the place you've been employed maybe even a month longer?  That's invaluable in sharing YOU. Thankfully, I embrace sharing my stories because it is my passion so I am always shar

  • OAC 326 Look Up!

    OAC 326 Look Up!

    13/03/2019 Duração: 18min

    I've got to tell you, this is a loaded subject for me!  Just a couple questions.  How often are you looking down at your phone?  How many people do you hear when you are focused with your head down?  Do your neck and shoulders get achy by the end of the day? So what happens if all these apply?  You miss out, BIG time, if you're not looking up.  You're like yeah, right, Gail, big whup!  Well, from my perspective it is. Especially when I watch parents of little precious children totally ignore their kids on the play ground.  They'll yelling, look at me, push me, play with me, and yet, there they are on an impersonal machine. I can rant a long time on this subject.  The drivers that think that a one minute glance on their phone to check a very insignificant message is more important than their life or someone else's...yeah I could rant a very long time on this. But most importantly, I want to share a few recent observations of mine.  For example, Saturday, I was attending an event of a friend's and manned her b

    OAC 325 Stress or De-Stress. That Is The Question.

    12/02/2019 Duração: 18min

    I know you're thinking...WHAT?  Why would any one prefer stress over de-stressing.  Well, let me ask you something.  Have you ever created your own stress? Well, listen to my most recent tale and you will understand where I'm coming from...because I did a terrible injustice to myself and you, my loyal listeners. Thank you for jumping back in to listen, it's been quite a while!  The crud got me, but I lowered my resistance by not being aware enough of what I was doing to myself. Sounds crazy I know, but when you're hit with a virus and your voice disappears - not fun for a podcst talk show host - or anyone!  But it's hard to do justice to any spoken word when you have 2 big fat bull frogs taking up residence in your throat!! But it does give you time to reflect on what is going on.  And I figured out where I had created my own stress. And I encourage you to take stock of what you find yourself doing.  Are you self-sabotaging yourself by the simple choice you've made? We usually think it is a more deliberate

    OAC 324 De-Cluttering. So Much More Than You Think!

    21/01/2019 Duração: 10min

    This is the audio version of my recent LIVE FB post that I promised to send via mp3 file for your chosen format.  You can definitely hear the transition from my headphones to the webcam recording.  Working on blending it better... Do you dread de-cluttering?  I seem to get on a tangent and start without meaning to.  Once in awhile I'll put it on my 'To-Do' list which I really call, 'My On-Going' list, but that's when I have my daughter involved.  She is a Professional Organizer.  What I've found in this practice, with or without her present, is that while sorting, discarding and 'Goodwilling'  I find long lost treasures I had forgotten about. That quote that moved me.  The precious memory preserved in a picture.  The link to a cooking website - now that's funny, 'cause I don't like to cook.  However, I love to eat, so if it's easy I will make the attempt, thus the link. But I think you've got the picture.  You find unexpected gifts within the piles you've unintentionally created.  Now maybe you did it on pur

    OAC 323 It's All About Community!

    10/01/2019 Duração: 15min

    I know, you're probably smiling, thinking, yeah no kidding, Sherlock, that's the name of your show :-) And yes, that is exactly why I named it this because without community, we suffer, whether you believe that or not!  People thrive, in my perspective, when you have a support group, a community of people that you can connect with. And in this day and age, you may be thinking that's Social Media talk, but it's all kinds of connecting.  I network constantly and very consistently in our town, and not as often enough on Social Media.  But that is a promise I've made to myself and you - but you have to listen to hear more on that. It took me much longer today to produce this as I've transitioned to Windows 10 and a whole new computer!  So I'm working to get the hang of the new stuff, but wow, everything looks different on here after being with Windows 7 for 10 years!!! I hope you'll listen in to get a sneak peak of who will be part of my community of guests this year.  Starting off my "Leap of Faith" interview se

    I just wanted to give a great big shout out before the holidays get in full swing and tell you how much I appreciate you listening and sharing my show! You made my year and hope you will continue to listen as we change it up with Live interviews and awesome inspirational stories in 2019!

    OAC 321 Don't Bend Challenge!

    10/12/2018 Duração: 15min

    Okay, my friends this is a wild and crazy episode.  I actually combine the audio from my FB Live with my regular audio...and here's why :-) Come mid-January I will be doing an online TV show on my FaceBook page.  And then I will upload that audio into my original podcast production.  That way, people that still want to just listen, can :-) So I share that on the show, too!  This title comes from what is going on for me right now.  I just had cataract surgery in my right eye.  Instructions of restrictions for a week were:  No vigorous exercise, no eye make up, no rubbing or putting pressure on the eye, no lifting over 20 pounds, no dust, water or dirt in the eye and NO BENDING from the waist putting the head past my knees!!! Well, I gotta tell you, it was one of the first things I tried to do when I got home from surgery!  I didn't know.  They told me while I was still feeling the affects of the anesthesia so I had no clue!  But my daughter caught me before I was in a full bend mode! Interesting side affect of

  • OAC 320 So How Do You Deal With Life Transitions?

    OAC 320 So How Do You Deal With Life Transitions?

    15/11/2018 Duração: 18min

    Wow, I gotta tell you I have talked about this subject quite often.  But I came to realize that every single day of our life we are making transitions! Really.  Think about it!  We don't realize how often we have to transition from one task or experience after another.  A lot of us marketing on FB or Instagram, Twitter, etc. talk about the changes in algorithms that affect our reach.  But, I came to realize that daily life's activity is just one transition upon transition. So on today's show I talk about these moments and how I deal with them.  Big, little, good, bad, ugly, you name it.  We all, I believe, deal with a lot every day. I hope you enjoy and will find this gives you a different perspective on how your day may unfold.  I would love to hear your comments and would always appreciate you sharing.  Someone may not be dealing well and my way of thinking may help them. If you're listening BEFORE Thanksgiving, I wish you the best day of gratitude with family and friends.  If it's AFTER I hope it was marve
