Deanne Demarco Features Two Inspiring Women Who Followed their Passions and Changed Careers

Host Deanne DeMarco interviews two inspiring women who followed their passions and changed careers: C. G. Funk, Vice President of Massage Envy Franchising, and Linda Byars Swindling, author and work drama negotiator. DeMarco’s show, “Today’s Inspiring Women,” airs noon Pacific on Thursday on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Network.

Phoenix, AZ, May 26, 2013 - Two inspiring women who switched careers to follow their passions, and became successful all over again, are the special guests on Deanne DeMarco’s upcoming radio show.

Featured on next Thursday’s episode of Deanne DeMarco’s powerful, energizing program, “Today’s Inspiring Women,” are high-flying business executives Linda Byars Swindling and C.G. Funk.

They will be sharing their insightful business experiences during Deanne DeMarco’s weekly hour-long program on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Radio network, which airs 12 noon Pacific.

C.G. Funk was a highly successful sales and marketing executive before following her passion and becoming a massage therapist . As her career has developed she has held multiple positions including business owner, massage educator, curricula and program developer, writer and presenter, corporate trainer and school administrator.

Today, C. G. is the Vice President of Industry Relations and Product Development for Massage Envy Franchising, the pioneer and national leader of affordable massage and spa services.

For Massage Envy, C.G. has developed several national programs including the Massage Envy Spa model and Massage Envy as well as programs for the recruitment and retention of therapists and estheticians. As national spokesperson for the chain she provides outreach to the media, professional organizations, government regulatory departments and businesses.

Deanne DeMarco’s second guest, Linda Byars Swindling, JD, CSP, also made a major career switch. In her case she went from the courtroom to the boardroom. Formerly an attorney and partner by the age of 30 at a major law firm, she became an author and entrepreneurial workplace negotiator.

Linda, whose latest book “Stop Complainers and Energy Drainers; How To Negotiate Work Drama To Get More Done,” was published by Wiley, is now an accomplished keynote speaker, executive coach, and strategic consultant.

Linda is president of Journey On, her Dallas-based, woman-owned business that customizes training programs, strategic consulting and executive coaching. She is also the author of the popular “Passports to Success” series, which offers thirteen titles on workplace and communication issues including “Get What You Want,” “Say It Right,” At Your Service,” and “Set The Standard.”

Deanne DeMarco, who has twenty successful years as a career coach and keynote speaker, said, “Both women will be talking about how they followed their passions and refused to listen to the naysayers. They will be telling my audience how you have to believe in yourself and be brave as you face the inevitable challenges on the road to success. Both of them stress that it’s important to seek advice from others who have already traveled that path and become successful. They are two wonderfully inspiring guests to have on one show.”

Deanne DeMarco herself has used her innovative strategies—drawn from successful experiences as a scientist, college instructor, management trainer, Fortune 500 manager, author and entrepreneur—to help business executives and individuals break through personal and career roadblocks. Each week she interviews extraordinary and inspiring women who may not yet be household names but are business and entrepreneurial rising stars.
