What is relationship? What are you doing to engage in relationships within the community, your business and your family and in life? What does it mean to be an authentic person in life? Rise Up Radio hosts Jared Kelley, Mission Realty Group and James Carmody, Synergy One Lending, sat down to discuss the answers to these questions. Carmody and Kelley decided to “let it rip” as the men open up about their personal lives, their visions on leadership and their understanding of how relationships and community are needed. One of the key points of the discussion includes realizing that everyone has a purpose and no matter what you are doing in your life, you are leaving a wake behind you. A wake is a sphere of influence that will affect all those who follow behind you. Being an authentic and genuine person involves helping others and having a desire to empower and serve others in life. It means being who you are and knowing who you are and what you are about. Realizing not everyone has the same talents or abilities and not trying to become someone you are not. It also means being part of the community, because it allows you to be part of a relationship. Carmody explains how he believes emotional intelligence, emotional awareness or how we engage others. Showing people you care and are there to encourage and empower them to be the best they can be. In fact it is one of the things he has encouraged those he leads to incorporate when dealing with clients. Rise Up Radio’s goal is to help servant business in the San Diego community to empower each other by sharing their life experiences with others and through encouraging others to do the same. You have to invite others to be a part of your story! Everyone is a person who has a purpose and you are needed to be a part of the bigger picture.

 

While many make the decision to wallow in self-pity at the hand life has dealt them, author and motivational speaker Sean Stephenson decided years ago to take a stand for quality of life. Stephenson, known by many as ‘the three foot giant’, was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare bone disorder that the doctors said would prevent him from living past his birth. At 37 years of age, he has not only proven those doctors wrong, he has gone on become a therapist, author and motivational speaker. His most recent book, “Get Off Your Butt: How To End Self Sabotage” has empowered people around the world to overcome their insecurities and live the lives they are meant to live. Jeremy Coombs, Sales Executive with National Fidelity is celebrating being sober for six years now. Coombs who thought that drinking, fighting and chasing women was what a real man does soon discovered he was living a life based on what others thought it should be. He made the decision to stop being someone he wasn’t and become the person he truly was inside. Coombs and Stephenson sat down with James Carmody and Jared Kelley to share the stories of their 13 year friendship and what it means to be a leader. The two men share how they met and the impact their friendship has had on each of them. In a humorous and entertaining conversation Stephenson and Coombs share their life stories, including how Coombs helped Stephenson to find true love. A feat that Stephenson is now hoping to help his friend also find. He believes that once you find the purpose in your life, you will then find the person who will be on the same path as you are and they will be the person who will not only raise you up, but give you the support you need to fulfill that purpose.
