Petrified Forest National Park (0:00:00) As you drive through the northeastern parts of Arizona, you enter the land belonging to Petrified Forest National Park. Surrounded by red rocks, this national park has a renowned beauty. There are so many places to hike, explore, and discover. We wanted to learn more about this park, so we’ve invited one of the park’s rangers, Sarah Herve onto the show. Sarah oversees the rangers and volunteers who share the park’s story with visitors. Work Personas (0:21:10) You just got promoted to a leadership position at work. You don’t want to mess it up, so you decide that you are going to put out a more authoritative image to bring your team to success. You’re now a leader and it’s time you start acting like one. That’s all fine and good, but what happens if you take it too far and aren’t true to yourself? Former CFO of Microsoft North America and a leadership coach, John Rex, joins us to share his advice for being genuine in the work environment and avoiding work personas. Taxes in July (0:52:45) Many Americans have been thrown off by the country’s decision to move the deadline to file taxes from April to July. We’re joined by Richard Rubin, US tax policy reporter for the Wall Street Journal, to discuss what difference this makes and how we can make sure we’re filing the right way. Mini Book Club: Modern Fairytales (1:11:28) Rachel Wadham, of BYU Radio’s Worlds Awaiting, talks with Lisa and Richie about the best modern fairytale retellings to read. You can find a complete list of the books she talked about by finding The Lisa Show on all social media platforms. The Rainbow Movement (1:20:40) You know that excitement and amazement you feel when you see a rainbow? How about a double rainbow? Well you’ve probably never been as excited as Paul Vasquez. If you don’t remember... 10 years ago a man named Paul Vasquez was so enthusiastic about seeing a double rainbow that his reaction went viral. He was even interviewed on national news about it. Well today’s guest, Bill Ulrich, also had a life-changing experience upon seeing a rainbow, and eventually teamed up with Paul Vasquez to establish The Rainbow Movement—a foundation devoted to making the world a better place. Finding Hidden Money (1:30:51) Rent day is coming up, utility bills are due, and you need to make your car payment. The fixed expenses in your life just seem to keep piling up and financial breathing keeps diminishing. It seems like the only solution is to increase your cash flow.
