Mary Jo Van Horn
Thank you Mike. I’m happy to be here.

Mike White
Tell us a little bit about Van Horn media and some of the services you provide clients.

Mary Jo Van Horn
Well as a former media buying expert turned life coach, my services today focus on helping people deal with stress, with office drama, and with bringing their life’s purpose into their work.

Mike White
So let’s talk about stress. I’m on my third team meeting today. The employees are running around like crazy. I’ve had nine cups of coffee. I got to the office at 4:45 and I’ve got a meeting at 6:00 p.m. tonight. So how can you help me cope with my stress.

Mary Jo Van Horn
Absolutely. You know for most people the stress shows up just you know with that type of a schedule. For me personally, the biggest way stress showed up for me was in trouble sleeping and high blood pressure and neck and shoulder and back pain. You know others will have maybe those symptoms plus headaches or migraines. All of which are symptoms that that can really distract you from doing your best work, from serving your clients at at your highest level. And what most people think is that stress is circumstantial. But what I’ve found is that the root cause of stress is an old thought pattern that’s kind of playing like this endless loop in the back of your mind, mostly subconscious. And so when we get to that thought pattern and you become aware of that that’s the first step to being able to let it go.

Mike White
How can you help me from Bismarck.

Mary Jo Van Horn
I work virtually using the zoom video platform. So as long as you have internet and a device we’re good to go.

Mike White
So some tips and advice if someone doesn’t engage you but wants to do a few tips or tricks on their own to eliminate alleviate I guess alleviate their stress points. What’s a some advice you would give them?

Mary Jo Van Horn
Best advice I can give is to just, as best you can, try to become conscious of the thoughts that you’re thinking. Those things that trigger you, when you feel your body tense or you feel some of those symptoms coming on, start telling yourself the truth about things we often make situations so much worse in our heads than what they really are. And to just like give yourself a few minutes to just take some deep breaths know that everything is going to be okay and keep moving forward.

Mike White
Mary Jo if someone would like to talk to you and have a consultation. Is that a free consultation or how do you engage.
