And today, I just again, am super excited because I met this woman a few years ago, and I was at a Bob Proctor event. And oh, the buzz. The buzz was all about Cynthia. And of course I didn't know Cynthia at the time, but I knew I was about to be in the presence of a celebrity and celebrity only means the passion that she has for life and sharing with other people. So Cynthia Kersey is my guest today. Welcome, Cynthia.

Cynthia Kersey  2:06  
Thank you, Marcy. Great to be with you today.

Marcy Predmore  2:09  
I am so excited. So let me just tell the audience just a tiny bit about you. And then you can expand just a little bit, but I am super excited for them just to hear who you are from the heart. So Cynthia is the founder and CEO of the unstoppable Foundation. The focus is to ensure that every child on this planet has access to lifelong gift of education. She is a respected leader in transformational industry, a best selling author of two books, unstoppable, unstoppable women, and she's also an international speaker. And if you haven't heard Cynthia, please hop on YouTube and just look up Cynthia Kersey. Cynthia knows firsthand that giving is not only good for business, it's good for the soul. And that's who she is. She inspires people to give and provides business professionals with a practical action plan on how they can expand their business, create customer evangelists and become completely invigorated about their life and business by integrating generosity as a fundamental part of their business model. Cynthia embodies her message and all Can I speak to that and has integrated giving and contribution into her life and business for well over two decades, the unstoppable Foundation has provided daily education for over a half a million people and provides access to life saving services such as clean water, health care, nutritional food, through organic gardening, and that's in Kenya alone. So Cynthia, hop in here and help us fill in the blanks.

Cynthia Kersey  4:03  
You're very funny. Ah, hey, fill in the blanks. Well, you know, it's interesting yet, you know, the concept, you know, where did unstoppable come from? And they always say that you people write the books they need the most. And, you know, there was a part of me that was always so inspired by, you know, stories of unstoppable people, you know, people who overcame so much even Walt Disney, you know, was on the verge of bankruptcy every 18 months for 30 years. And yet he didn't quit. And so I really initially wrote the book for myself, because I was just so inspired, and it takes so much courage to continue. And so I you know, ended up writing my book I quit my job cash in my entire life savings downsized my life to actually be able to write unstoppable and I'm, you know, living my purpose and passion, which was to inspire people to live unstoppable lives. And the book comes out. And 18 months later, my 20 year marriage ended. And I was devastated. Yeah. And I called Millard Fuller, the founder of Habitat for Humanity, I had interviewed him, he was a part of my book. And he gave me some some really powerful advice. He said, When you have a great pain in your life, you need a greater purpose. And I know isn't that it's so powerful. And, you know, it's interesting, because I was living my purpose, right? I mean, I was I left a corporate job to do this. But when I really checked in with it, it wasn't bigger than my pain, you know, that they even the vision of helping people live unstoppable, life was not bigger than my pain. And so he said, Well, why don't you build a house for a family in need? And at that point, you know, I had never done anything like that before. He had just gotten back from Nepal. He told me, you know, it's just such a gorgeous area, you know, Mount Everest. And I mean, you know, the five of the seven largest mountain peaks in the world are in Nepal is just a majestic country, and yet, one of the most impoverished nations in the world. And he's like, why don't you start in Nepal? And I thought, how many houses would I need to build that would offset this pain in my life? And it was $2,000 to build a house in Nepal. And I thought, well, I've never built one before, right? Well, what about one? Or what about two? Or yeah, you know, what about five and I mean, it didn't even touched me until I got to the number 100 100 houses. And that felt bigger than my pain. Wow. So the next year when I'm grieving and healing, and not feeling like getting out of bed in the morning, talk about not feeling unstoppable. I didn't. But I thought about these families that didn't even have a simple decent place to live. And that kept me going. And at the end of my presentation, I would always just share the opportunity with others, Mary calls it a see no invitation feel invited, not obligated. And that's what I did. And people responded, I raised $200,000, and took 18 people to Nepal the next year. And we worked on the first three of the 100 homes that were built subsequently, as a result of that project. And Marcy, that was one of the most profound experiences I ever had with giving. Because first off, it was the first project I'd ever done. But secondly, you know, I thought I was doing something great for these Nepalese families. Yeah. And what I hadn't understood is what it did for me. It gave me a purpose. It gave me something to live for. It gave me something to get out of bed in the morning. Yes. And that was the beginning of, you know, a journey of integrating giving Yes, into my business. And it's interesting, because I was never motivated to make money. But when you look at, you know, what does that make possible? Yeah, that was my motivator. And I just, I've integrated it ever since. You know, that was how many years ago? 21 years ago? Wow.

Marcy Predmore  9:05  
That and you know, Cynthia, the power of giving, also has to be the power of receiving right?

Cynthia Kersey  9:13  
Yeah, that's so true. And absolutely,

Marcy Predmore  9:17  
yes, go ahead.

Cynthia Kersey  9:19  
No, no, no. Yeah. So I'll speak and then and then you can tell me what your point of view is. Yeah. I mean, it is important because so many people give. Yeah, and they also give out of obligation. They don't give out an inspiration. You know, so so many people and women, I think really fall into this category. Because they many, many times not always, but you know, they're taking care of the family and running a business or having a career and they just get worn out. And it's like they're giving to this and they're giving to that and they're not receiving right it's not the giving the inspirational giving where you're uplifted where you're in Byard they're giving out of, like I said, obligation. So what I'm talking about is that inspired what has inspired me mean in spirit, it's that, that inspiration that is from something that's bigger than all of us. And when you say yes to that, even though it makes no sense, it can absolutely transform your life. And one thing that Millard fuller used to always say to me, is, you know, he gave away his money, you know, to start Habitat for Humanity gave it all away. And he said, he and his wife, they felt like their richest people alive, because of what they were able to do in the lives of other people.

Marcy Predmore  10:47  
Oh, my gosh, that, and that is just so, so wonderful. And you mentioned it just a few minutes ago. But I think this falls into, of course, everyone's category, but especially in the female entrepreneurial space, are so torn between success, growth, whatever that looks like, that sometimes it's hard for us to actually see and feel our success. And that was one of the reasons that I felt like ordinary women extraordinary wealth came to be is to help people really understand how successful they are, in where they are. And just speak to that one of the questions that I do love to ask, and so many people have definite answers. But there's also a lot to this question is what does success mean to you?

Cynthia Kersey  11:48  
Yeah. Yeah. You know, that's a very interesting question. I mean, to me, it's like, being a service, you know, it's like, the thing that makes me the happiest, is, I just had a call today with our stoppable Leadership Academy Academy facilitators, you know, in their bringing this transformational education to students who, a decade ago weren't even, you know, girls weren't even going to school pass third, fourth, fifth grade, if they were lucky. And, you know, never had an opportunity to learn to go to college or, you know, to really learn what it means to be a leader and have agency of your earlier life, and just listening to them, and how inspired they are to be able to bring this this material, it's changed their life, it's changed the lives of the students. And it's just like, to me, that's success, you know, and it's not like, you reach a certain pinnacle, or you make a certain amount of money, or you give a certain amount of money away. It's like, how do you how do you live your life? Yes. And, you know, and then what difference can you make every single day? And I think when you give what you can, and, you know, you hold to the things that inspire you, obviously, me running my foundation, I'm inspired by that I've always, you know, is raised in a Christian home, and you know, I thought when I was younger, I wanted to be a missionary and go work with kids in like, you know, Africa, you know, and not, you know, and to really meet their needs. But you I don't think so it's kind of interesting that I'm that I'm doing this. But yeah, to me, it's like it's to live what you are here, what is ours to do, Mary Morrissey always says, says that, like what's yours to do? And if you can really find what yours to do, and then do it. Yeah. I think that's a really successful life.

Marcy Predmore  14:03  
Oh, I and I, that just resonated with me so well, because I do believe that that's exactly what we are supposed to do. So God impressed upon you. In your growing up years, the example of growing in your family of being reared in your family, be a missionary. And I think he answered your prayers. I think that's exactly yes. Yeah. What you are, yeah. are and what you're doing. It just doesn't happen to have a label of missionary on it.

Cynthia Kersey  14:33  
That's right. Well, it's funny because my dad is at my wedding. To blame. You know, he said, You know what, Cynthia, you know, she always talks about being a missionary. And now she is one. Yeah, in the broadest sense, right, of a lover of humanity, somebody who really works with people who are more vulnerable, and don't have access to the things that most of us certainly You listening to this podcast have access to. And you know, it's an honor. And it's a beautiful way to live. And I feel very privileged to do it.

Marcy Predmore  15:08  
Absolutely. And just to you, audience, if I could just interject on that one thing, Cynthia truly is a lover of humanity. That was the one thing that I noticed when she walked through the door. Three or four years ago, I can't remember when we met, but when she walked through the door, truly a lover of humanity, what can she do for other people, and that is who I really grown to know and love. And Cynthia.

Cynthia Kersey  15:39  
Thank Thank you. Thank you mercy. And it's like, you know, and you too, you certainly found what is yours to do? I think and you do it in a really beautiful way. And, you know, it's like, I feel like words, were a vehicle, like for me, you know, what am I I'm kind of like a vehicle for people to really give, right and to experience that transformational experience of giving. And unstoppable foundations are really just a vehicle that people can do that they can give to all sorts of places, right at or in help. I mean, there's just so many ways that you can give in your life. But I but I feel like you know, I've kind of grown into understanding the opportunity to really help people connect with their level of prosperity, you know, if you can be a billionaire, but if you don't give money away, if you're holding on to it, like you're gonna lose it, are you prosperous? No, no, you know, it just helps people really connect with that higher, that higher calling and an opportunity to impact other people. Oh, you're giving whatever that looks like?

Marcy Predmore  16:51  
You bet. And that's exactly right. And there's so many questions I had right after that. But I'm going to ask you my last big question. And then I want to jump into things that you just shared. But last big question that I'm going to ask is, What does wealth mean to us, Cynthia?

Cynthia Kersey  17:10  
Well, you know, I'm just gonna go back to even what, you know, Millard said, right, where he feels like he was the richest man on the planet. Why? You know, you had he had had great friends. He had meaningful work. He was able to do you know, what, what was his to do? And I mean, I think that's, well, it's, I think, in understanding and really trusting, you know, how, when you understand how life works, and how money works, and how God works, right, with all of this knowing, you know, your needs are met, and as you give more as you are in service to others, you receive tenfold you know, they say you can't outgive God, and I think that's the truth. And again, I'm not just talking money, I can be talking time, your heart, you know, who can you call, I know so many people now who are in the hospital and sick and it's just like, you know, so many people that need love. And you know, whenever I reach out, I'm the one that feels uplifted. You know, it's really fascinating how that works. I really quick story, about a woman named candy Walker and Cami was diagnosed. Well, first off, she was at like, the height of her career. She had just gotten married to the love of her life. She just got back from her honeymoon. And she woke up in her right arm would it work. And in lost your sight in one of her eyes, and she went to the doctor, and they after doing all of these tests, she was diagnosed as having multiple sclerosis. And it just like was this rapid onset and she got sicker and sicker and was in the hospital and got more and more depressed. And a friend who was also a spiritual teacher came and visited, her name was Nibali and he and she said, she said when you see Cami, and she's like, Cami, I know this is hard for you. But you got to stop focusing on yourself and your problems. And imagine kameez like outrage. She's like, are you serious? Can you not see me know where I am? And the barley said, I do. But as you when you focus on that, it just gets bigger, and you're magnifying it. And she said, I want to give you a prescription and she said, I want you to give away 29 gifts in 29 days, so do something every day you're giving to somebody else, and Kami thinking I don't have anything to give when I'm here in a hotel in a hospital room. She said it doesn't matter, it could be a blessing. It could be a prayer, it could be a kind thought, a kind word. It doesn't matter what it is, but to do it from a place of abundance, right and not wanting anything in return. And so kami thought, well, at least I don't think it'll make things worse. So, the first day, she thought, oh, I have a friend who also has multiple sclerosis, and her husband was traveling, so she thought, I'll call her and, you know, just lift your spirits. And she called her and he noticed she felt a little better. And then every day she did something that was not big. But by you know, within a week, she's really noticing her mind shift is it's shifting, it's changing. And she's able to start being more mobile. And by the end of the 29 days, she had a goal to walk. I can't remember the distance, if it was like a mile, I think it was a mile. And before she couldn't walk, you know, 400 feet without sitting down and you know, with a cane and things like that. And she was able, she was able to do that now did Does she still have multiple sclerosis? Yes. But what she did say is it made her realize that she could still contribute, that her life here still had meaning. And I think, you know, I mean, that shifted everything for her, she ended up writing a book called 29 gifts. And I love that story. Because when you know, you have something to give, you become more confident, you become more valuable to yourself. And when you can see your own value and what you can do for others, you know it you walk in the world differently.

Marcy Predmore  21:59  
Yes. Absolutely. See your own value. I so love that. And I think I needed to hear those words today. Because sometimes you kind of get lost in your own path in your own journey. What is it for? So that story? And all in the words of Zig Ziglar? The more you help other people get what they need and want. The abundance just flows to everybody involved. And the receiving does make you stronger? Wow. Right? Absolutely. Yes. Love it. And so let's talk about a little bit, um, the life in the day of Cynthia. So what does your life look like? Because you give so often, but what what is your waking hours look like? What is your day look like Cynthia?

Cynthia Kersey  22:52  
Eno, I want to set the context for this. years ago, before I even started the foundation, I was so inspired around the concept of giving, that I created a Year of Giving. And if you're going to give, like you said you have to be able to receive. So the first thing I did was I look at okay, how do I give to myself spiritually? How do I get to myself emotionally? How do I give to myself physically, like so that's the first thing to mark out. And then I looked at how do I give to somebody else. So it's kind of like the the idea of giving to myself filling my own cup, and then looking for ways that I could give to other people. And that is an amazing practice to do. I mean, it really shifted me at a cellular level, you know, to change to intentionally look for, you know, how do I get to myself, so, I'm not always 100% successful in all of those categories. But on any given day, you know, start the day, you know, Bob has the gratitude journal, you know, just so starting with what am I grateful for, you know, and, and then just getting quiet, and it's like, what does spirit you know, want to say just being open to any, any guidance or inspiration. And then I have a trainer that I work out with her twice a week, and then my husband and I walk a lot. We live in the Washington, it's just gorgeous up here. So you know, those are kind of the mental, emotional, physical needs. And then you know, my days are filled doing a lot of different things. It's not the same every day. One of the things you know, our life has changed a lot like yours and many people I used to speak and attend a lot of events, and they're not happening now. So, you know, they're virtual, so I have more time we've really kind of reevaluated you know, our programs and what do people need right now? And, you know, we are still delivering emergency food. You know, besides the pandemic, you've got in, in East Africa, you've got a drought. So you know, food security is a real issue. And then, you know, looking at expanding our programs expanding, we're now in, in Mombasa, which is near the coast. So we have six new communities that we're working in. We've got our leadership academy, that we're that, you know, again, bring this transformational information to students and to also parents, so I'm working on expanding that, what does that look like? What who are some potential partners, maybe other universities that we could deliver the leadership component? So it's, you know, it's a lot of calls. A lot of issues, you know, shifting pivoting, that's been the big word, right. But really, again, yeah, looking.

Marcy Predmore  26:07  
I was just gonna say pivoting to

Cynthia Kersey  26:09  
There you go. People are probably tired of that word. But it's the truth. You know, we've had to really shift, you know, what we're doing and how we're doing it. And when you're working with vulnerable populations, you have to be, you know, you have to be nimble, and you have to be able to act quickly. Because if people can't source food, one meal a day, how long can they live like that? Yes. So, you know, so again, so it's just, you know, a lot of planning a lot of, you know, getting the reports from the work that we're doing in expanding my role is a lot about expanding our programs, which is really, you know, fun and exciting. Yes. And then, of course, you know, the evenings I spend time with my husband, and we, you know, eat most meals at home cooked meals, and then we walk and then I've got my little Pomeranian Maddie, and, you know, it's the three of us here. So that's kinda what the day looks like. Wow,

Marcy Predmore  27:08  
that sounds like a lovely day. And I've not been to Cynthia's but I've gotten the privilege of seeing photos of where she lives and it is truly divine, where they live and probably inspirational. The moment you walk out your door.

Cynthia Kersey  27:22  
Yeah, that's right. It's nature, right? It's all nature. And it's beautiful in the trees. It's so green. When I first started dating Blaine and came up to Washington. I'm like, Oh, my gosh, look at all these trees. It's quite pretty. It's beautiful.

Marcy Predmore  27:39  
You bet I know, I feel the same way about my Rocky Mountains. It really, it brings up so much when I'm so much. I'm out in it. Well, speaking of inspiration, you and I met, of course, in the growth stage or the mentor stage was up that guy at Procter Gallagher and met Bob Proctor, and met many people who had already gotten involved in unstoppable in So Cindy Cynthia, talk to us a little bit about the importance of mentors and growth.

Cynthia Kersey  28:16  
Yeah, well, I think a mentor is. I mean, it's pretty significant. I was gonna say everything, but I actually think a mentors. You know, they certainly played a key role in my life, I met Bob Proctor when my first book just came out, like I was a brand new author. And he was just like, pushing me at my edge all the time. You know, I mean, it was just all the time, you know. And so I've been fortunate, you know, Millard Fuller was a really dear mentor to me. And so I think, you know, when you can learn from other people, you significantly reduce the learning curve. Yes. And, you know, you can learn from their mistakes. I mean, it's like, even what I do, you know, I'm happy to share with other people what I've learned, you know, there's, when you're doing something new, it's impossible to really know how to do it. And mentors really can kind of pave the path. Yeah. You know, so you can kind of get ahead quicker. Yeah, so I think mentors are really important. And I think one thing about being a good you know, getting a good mentor is to be a good man to you know, so be coachable. Don't be a know it all. Oh, yeah. You know, like, yeah, you know, just, you know, and, you know, if the advice doesn't resonate, you know, obviously, I don't do anything that doesn't resonate, but you know, take action, you know, people that like investing time in people if they feel like their time is such a good investment of their, of their energy in their tablet. So, yes, you know, yeah,

Marcy Predmore  29:54  
yes, in take action, that's it. And then as and I share this a lot, a lot of people already No, but when I did climb Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the things that I needed and wanted, and I researched a lot is I wanted somebody who had started where I am, but it hadn't what I wanted to achieve. So they already knew very smart. Yes, they already journey. They knew what I was going to go through because they had achieved it. So I agree with you. You have to be able to listen to your mentor, but be a good mentee and take the next step.

Cynthia Kersey  30:30  
That's right. Yeah, exactly. Yes. I

Marcy Predmore  30:33  
love that. Well, so let's just talk about a little bit about resources. Of course, we have your book, unstoppable and unstoppable women. So we'll definitely have that in the show notes. But are there any other books that have truly inspired you? That just pop off the top of your head?

Cynthia Kersey  30:52  
Yeah, well, I have to say two of my absolute favorite books that I read over and over is the Untethered Soul. Oh, by Michael singer. Yes. And he asked, Are you familiar with that book? Yes. It's amazing. And the other book that he wrote is the surrender experiment. Oh, now I've not and yeah, yeah. Yeah. And he wrote that book, you know, going through a very, very challenging time, which made that book all the more powerful, right? It's just, you know, you kind of like you're, I mean, it's just an excellent book, you know, the thought that, you know, we can't really control, you know, what happens in our life, and it really is our response to it. Right. And I honestly, I've reread those books, multiple times. I love it. I love those books.

Marcy Predmore  31:50  
Well, I definitely will pick back up Untethered Soul because I, I think I got that at Bob's but the other one surrender experiment. I've not read that. Yeah, definitely. Yeah. Yeah. And it's great. That's awesome. And there's so much energy in a book. And I know, sometimes it seems a little daunting. My team and I, we read a chapter of u squared, which is just usually a page and a half for 30 days. And sometimes my staff say, I just didn't have time to read. I just didn't have time. And you know what, you don't have to take the time to read the whole book. So what I did is I started recording the chapter with my voice. And if I don't have time to read, I just listen to the chapter.

Cynthia Kersey  32:40  
Oh, that's great. That's brilliant. That's, yeah. And it's

Marcy Predmore  32:45  
just so important for me to ingest that energy and just those words, and and really helps me take my next step every morning, especially if we have a morning. That's a little bit. You need some inspiration.

Cynthia Kersey  32:59  
Yeah, yes, we all have mornings like that.

Marcy Predmore  33:03  
Absolutely. Absolutely. And, you know, I think one of the things too, as we talk about mentors, Cynthia, you have mentored so many people, and I know you haven't been afraid to reach out to let's just call it somebody with with a big name, you've been able to reach out and say, Hey, will you come to my birthday party? I'm just encourage the audience in that. In that ask, Is it is it hard? Is it something to just answer that for them?

Cynthia Kersey  33:39  
Well, I mean, that's a very good question. So I mean, it is a very vulnerable thing to do. I wouldn't say it's easy for me. In all honesty, I wouldn't say it's easy for me. But I, I use the motivation is the purpose behind it. You know, and so it's like, it's for a cause it's bigger than me, it really isn't for me, right? Just like, when I invited people candidate is a gala, you know, my birthday party or the gala or participate or donate, you know, something? Or, you know, it is it can be challenging, but I just again, focus on what is it making possible? Yes. And and the most important advice that I can give people is when you ask, you have to create the space for them to say no. So when I call the dean, you know, invitation that Mary talks about, is a very authentic, I'm truly not attached. If people say yes or no, what I like for them to say yes, of course. Sure, but I have no energy if they don't, and when you aren't attached and you know, that God provides. It doesn't it's like okay, if it's not through them, let you know it It'll be through somebody else. But hopefully I'm still a blessing in that exchange. You know, and, you know, we talk about and Bob talks about this too being giving people an impression of increase. Yeah. So hopefully, you know, the, the engagement with me is a blessing. And there's no negative energy. So I that is important, because we've all experienced when people come and they ask us for something, and you don't really feel like you can say no, like they, you know, try to guilt trip you or yes, that doesn't feel good. And then you say yes, out of obligation. And then you wish you hadn't had you hadn't said yes. And it doesn't give you the same experience. So I tried to just say yes to things that really authentically feel like a yes. And give people the space to say no, really important.

Marcy Predmore  35:52  
I love that. And I am definitely going to remember that to just give them permission and give the space. That's awesome. Well, you know what, our time wraps up so quickly. And there's there's one thing first of all, I can't wait for to start seeing you again, in live person. And I we were supposed to go to a gala our very first Gala. The year. Yeah, you know that word? And I was 2020. Yes, I was so disappointed, because I just really wanted to feel the energy of being with like minds. And so yeah, wait to Sunday, just come out and enjoy the time in the space with you at the gala and just creating a difference in this world. So thank you for all you do there. And, Cynthia, as we begin to wrap up, I usually end with a tip of the week. And I know I didn't share this with you. But is there anything that you could share with the audience just to give them an encouragement to take the next step?

Cynthia Kersey  36:59  
Yeah. Well, you know, um, I mean, there's two things, you know, when you talk about I actually want to make it one because I think it's simple. And it's, it's really the wisdom from the barley. It's like, you know, if you're feeling down, or if you're challenged, if you're discouraged. You know, it's like, who can you help? You know, what can you do? And whether it's a prayer again, whether it's, you know, like, like I said, I've had, I have several friends that have been in the hospital, I tried to text them every day. You know, I mean, it's like, and I feel better, I feel better as a result of doing that. So it's look, look for how can you sure what is yours to do? Where is that inspired voice? That, that that saying, Gosh, you know, you should do this, you know, or this person needs that or whatever, again, and just do it. Yeah. And if you if you focus every day on doing something, your life, you'll shift your vibration, you'll shift your energy, and you'll, you know, be happy and energized to really greet all the opportunities that come your way.
