Episode 21 – Success Eludes Those Who Refuse Support
“Success eludes those who think they can do it all on their own”. – Carrie Cardozo
Episode 21 is all about getting the support you need to be successful in business and in your life.

No one is meant to do it all, yet over and over again there are so many people out there who are’t actively pursuing finding the help then need and deserve. Stop trying to do it all. Stop over working yourself, getting stressed out, wasting time, money, and valuable energy on things that you’re not great at and don’t need to be doing.

Episode 20 – Get OUT of Your Comfort Zone!
The choice is yours, either stay where you’re at, comfortable, safe and never changing, or get out of your comfort zone and decide to truly experience all that life has to offer.
Comfort zones are where most people like to stay, secure, safe, predictable and minimal risk. But comfort zones don’t offer you the opportunity to grow, expand and truly become who you’re meant to be. Often times you don’t necessarily make the choice to leave your zone, in reality, you’re usually forced, pushed or made to take the plunge. That’s what life delivers. Whether it’s your choice of it’s with resistance, there is never an easy solution or fix to taking that first step into the unknown, and that’s exactly what it is, the unknown. In episode 20 I take you along as I navigate this new journey I’m beginning. I share with you why I started, what it all means to me, and three ways that you can be better prepared, more confident and have a different mindset when you take your first step over and over again out of your comfort zone and into the unknown. Join me as we Break Through the Wall of comfort zones!

Episode 4 - Carrie's Story
“Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful.” ~ Anonymous
In this episode, Carrie takes you through the story of her life and several of the situations, struggles, and walls she has faced along the way that have helped mold her into who she is today. Some of those walls were placed before her by others, some she created by herself, and yet others were tragic walls she never expected to ever have to face. She takes you through how she felt, what she did, and what was learned from her experiences. She also shares some of the lessons that have now become invaluable to her, in business and life.
Overcoming these walls and implementing the lessons showed Carrie that she had the ability to help others create successful businesses, concur their own walls, and build lives they truly enjoyed.
Using all the lessons learned through life so far, she has created a business helping others overcome blocks, situations and lives that are unfulfilling to them. Carrie knows that she’s here to assist others in understanding what brings them happiness, discovering what they truly want, and providing them with the tools, resources and support to make all of that a reality.
Carrie’s wish is to see businesses and people being of service and of the highest value to everyone they connect with in this life. She wishes to see people happy, successful, and creating and living lives that bring them immense joy every single day. She wants people to see things as a lesson and as a gift instead of as a roadblock or a failure. And although she shares four of the huge walls faced in life, there are many more smaller ones that are left unsaid. Every wall is important, every wall has a lesson, and every person has something they are trying to overcome and learn from. Throughout this podcast Carrie will share more of the walls she overcame, and the lessons learned to move forward and live the life she chooses.
Episode 3 - Kevin's Story
At the age of 24, Kevin was faced with a life or death decision that would alter the course of his life forever. 15 years later, he has the ability to apply the same principles on a daily basis and because of that has been able to build a life and business he never dreamed possible.
In this episode, Kevin takes you through his own personal story, sharing some of the obstacles he faced along the way, and how he was able to overcome each. He also discusses how he got to this point and his life, and talks about why he’s refuses to play by the rules.
After more than 15 years working in the corporate and non-profit worlds building sales and marketing teams, Kevin decided it was time to stop focusing on someone else’s dream and start concentrating on his own. He is an expert at taking high-achievers to their greatest levels of success; understanding what makes people unique and using it to help them succeed while remaining true to themselves. And as a believer that a strong mindset is the foundation and fuel for everything in life, he’s has made it his mission to helping others master theirs.
Life isn’t always rainbows and unicorns, and sometimes it’s the most trying times that truly define our character. After this episode, you’ll be able to face those obstacles in your own life that have proven to be the hardest to overcome.
Episode 2 - The Meaning Behind the Name
We met by chance in a networking group, and after setting up a conversation to learn more about each other, we discovered many more things in common than just the businesses we conducted. Two coffee’s and five hours later, an invitation to start a podcast was on the table.
What we found about each other was that we have both been faced with walls or situations we weren’t always expecting. Our ability to overcome, work through and learn from those situations has contributed to creating who we are and the lives we now live. We know that a lot of people face obstacles and situations in life where they can feel stuck and alone. Some people are even afraid to ask for help. We knew that our histories and the lessons learned can also help others.
Enter the name Breaking Through Walls.
Episode 1 - Defining Success
In Breaking Through Walls’ debut episode, we take a real look at the all-important topic for business, life, and everything in-between – success. Together, we’ll break down society’s long-standing view on success, and the impact it has on people as they build and grow their businesses and careers. Success shouldn’t just be defined by the house you have, the car you drive, or the status you achieve in society. Rather, it’s about your freedom, the impact you have on others, and the ability to live and define your life exactly as you want it. We also share some tools and strategies that will help first define what success means to you, and then develop and implement the plan to work towards achieving your goals right now.
