    Marsha is the shit and my spirit animal! Growing up in a Russian family, stories were in Marsha’s blood, the currency of her family conversations. she received a psychology degree from the University of Edinburgh then did a 15-year stint as a Radio DJ, where I learned how to hone in on the best bits of a story and arrange them to make the most impact — in the 20 seconds between songs. She is a Networking Mentor and learned how to apply her instincts and storytelling skills to the business world, teaching people how to get to the heart of their business story and tell it in a way that had their dream clients lining up to work with them. Now, as a Storytelling Coach, Marsha helps everyone from solopreneurs to TED speakers craft their messages for maximum impact, empathy, and effectiveness.

  • Episode Put Your Money Where Your Self-Love Is! Feat. Denise Duffield-Thomas

    19/01/2018 Duración: 40min

    “Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.”Epictetus I have struggled to make enough money my whole adult life and when I had money I spent it, and not well. I grew up very comfortable and so I don’t where I developed this weird story with money. I have read so many books on money blocks and manifestation! Still, I have not truly gotten a handle on it. Now, I always try to make it through and it always comes at the last second, but I am not where I want to be at all. I don’t want just enough to get by anymore! I do want enough to pay my bills, travel, buy cute shoes once in a while and not to panic from the 20th until the end of the month and live paycheck to paycheck. It’s so hard to be honest with myself. Getting Denise on my show felt like a real coup! I was so excited and what I learned was she is super real, full-hearted and very vulnerable. The other thing I learned was I need to take her course and get full on Denise support and take the maybe painful deep dive. Deni

  • Episode Epic Danger feat. Nick McArthur

    12/01/2018 Duración: 51min

    Every once in a while you find someone you know you have to be friends with and for me that's Nick. He is kind, tough, romantic, evolved and super real and cool. And this is why I love Nick, in Nick's words, "I’m a dude, with a wife, five kids an online business. I also happen to have a history of living as a woman. This little piece of the internet is where I’ll attempt to tell you all my secret views of the world as someone who has lived fully on both sides of the gender coin. I believe in soul mates and destiny and so many hippie things.  I believe in morning sex and donuts for breakfast and Thursday night concerts in dives with beer in plastic cups. I also believe in the word Mother Fucker… try it, it feels good as it rolls off the tongue." Nick was born with ovaries and lived as a woman, married a man, and gave birth to 4 children and then fell in love with the beautiful Anna and now lives as a transman with Anna.

  • Every Little Thing She Does is Magic Feat. Michelle Simkins

    24/11/2017 Duración: 25min

    Michelle is one of those cool people who is unapologetically herself…. created her life the way she wants it & walks her talk. Growing up witches were either Bewitched or the Wicked Witch of the West, not the cool chick your friends with. That’s why I dig Michelle because she breaks the mold because her intention is to help people through her practices and craft. Listen in and you learn what it is to be a modern-day witch. Actually, I think most women are modern-day witches. Michelle is magical! SHOW NOTES: Michelle makes amazing talisman. A lot of people carry family and ancestral patterns. The deeper the wound the harder it is to remove. Being a witch for Michelle means: an inner knowing, making magic for healing, tuning into the earth and seasonal cycles. There is a magical and spiritual component to being a witch. The less apologetic you are, the less flack you get. It is all about boundaries.

  • Naked Talk feat. Karly Nimmo

    17/11/2017 Duración: 01h16min

    I kind of feel naked with a bloated belly in this episode. I was so lost in my own negativity spiral when I recorded this episode. Then I found Zofie and Relax Me Happy and my perspective has really shifted. Maybe I was not ready or maybe I did not have the right teacher. I know it sounds simple, but since then I have been so focused on ye old proverbial phrase “glass half full”. Anyhow, this is a very honest interview with Karly Nimmo, who is so lovable, honest and smart and makes you feel like her instant best friend. I feel like she and I are spiritual/podcasting soul sister and we both also have voice over careers! I dream of having a podcast with Karly! And going on retreats with her in Thailand. Or maybe Karly and I meet in Thailand every 6 months and record 20 episodes at a time! Dreamy! Meet Karly Nimmo! You will love her! SHOW NOTES: We are often looking for that place when we are free of struggle…that fairy tale place. We’re just where we need to be at any given moment. Leaning in means allowing

  • Stalking Happiness feat. Zofie Lloyd-Kucia

    02/11/2017 Duración: 58min

    Since my divorce, over 15 years ago I have been on a quest for happiness and enlightenment. Books, podcasts, audio tapes, audiobooks, mantras, yoga, prayer, meditation, therapy, retreats, seminars, grateful apps, A Course of Miracles (I’ve done the first two weeks a half dozen times), a cord cutter (don’t ask), a shaman, many Super Souls Sundays and list could go on! I was chasing it away! Get rid of those negative thoughts! Do it right now! Do it! And then I met Zofie, practical, real and so funny, she gives a relaxed easy approach to letting go of those negative thoughts and finding your own happy place. I use her mediations on a daily basis these days. And they are knocking the shit out of my ancient stories about myself and life and I am seeing the forest through the trees. She has one on her website you can get for free! So, meet Zofie Lloyd-Kucia… this is her first time but won’t be her last on Honestly Lisa. And FYI, in the not too distant future, we are going to do about three sessions ala Katy Perry

    I have Michelle Pante & Reena Lazar on this episode from the glorious inspiring Willow EOL. They help us look at the things that may be scary but important to grasp because ultimately, looking at the end of our lives can inspire us to live fully right now. Honestly, this is a pretty funny interview and not a downer at all… you will laugh ass off and maybe cry a little. Like a good romcom. ♥ I remember calling my mother about a week before she died to ask her what color Crocs(the shoes) she wanted. My sister said to me, Lisa she is dying and does not need shoes. I argued with my sister to not be such a Debbie Downer and then bought my mom a leopard pair Crocs. I arrived at my moms’ house with leopard Crocs in hand to find my whole family sitting with her. My mom still able to talk said thank you and looked at me with a mom look and I began to sob, really sob. And I could not stop crying until… well… I am still crying now writing this. It’s been almost 10 years and I still cry out of nowhere. I still have t

      When I first saw JP Sears I fell in love with him, laughed my ass off and then I thought with a giant pause... WAIT! Woah, Nellie! Spiritual comedy is my bag! Then the more I watched the more I loved the door he opened! Then the more I watched the more I loved the door he opened! Then I sent him a note asking him to be on Honestly Lisa and he said yes! Talking to JP was like talking to a brother from another mother. I felt like we had been playing in the same sandbox for many lifetimes. I had a bit of the nervous giggles in the beginning... fangirling all over him.  Listen in and see if you can hear the giggles... also you can head over to my patreon or youtube to watch the video. JP SEARS SHOW NOTES: Breathing is not an essential part of deep breaths How to be Ultra Spiritual JP is humorous and serious at the same time There is some truth in all jokes and a joke in all truths. Current girlfriend Amber thinks he is funny, his last girlfriend didn’t think he was funny Amber and JP are engaged! The victim is

    I have the thoughtful, smart, talented Kelly Carlin in the studio today! We have a ton in common, both tendered & raised by professionally funny men. Chickenman & The Hippy Dippy Weatherman I am not sure I have discussed the fact my dad was Chickeman. He was local radio personality in Chicago and dressed up in feathers and tights and went to malls on weekends to meet people. After the feathers, he became a national radio guy and advertising guru as well. I always thought kelly's dad was much cooler, truly the comic's comic that spans generations with his humor and brilliance. I was lucky enough in my Comedy Store days to watch him put together shows. All that being said, they are still just our dad's, that we love, and try are best to be the good girl for... or the good daughter. Kelly and I unpacked our lives as daughter's, showbiz struggles and finally how to be your own women. Kelly is doing full force... me I am a bit behind.

    What is numerology? Is there a rhyme to its science. Shelly Winter's told me I should change my name to Ollie Orkin. Would my life be different? Would I have 4 kid,s a great career and George as my husband? Or would I be an accountant living in Pheonix? And honestly either is fine as long as I was happy? Would that have changed my happiness factor? What comes first the numbers or the life? If I changed the name to Ollie would it have given me a different sense of control and therefore a different outcome? I don't know! I do do Nooell was awesome to talk to and she knows her numbers!
