Hi, I’m Lisa & I’m the host of
Get f***ing Real

She is smart, she is funny and she loves the word fuck. She has been mentoring 6 and 7-figure entrepreneurs for over 20 years. She coaches top coaches, teaches brilliant teachers and intuitively guides the most woo woo intuitives. She’s been a millionaire entrepreneur (for a minute) and a corporate flunky. And her GFR moments (in life and business) are countless, which makes her superbly qualified to host the GFR podcast!

What she knows for sure...when you Get Fucking Real you make a bigger difference and have fewer regrets...period.

About your host, Lisa Cherney

In 2014, after 15 years in business, Lisa Cherney got f**cking real and dismantled her successful 7-Figure business.

She was proud of the financial accomplishment, but burdened by the “monster” she created. It did not make her happy.

To make things worse her “6-Figures On Your Terms” events were helping 100s of entrepreneurs and her refreshing “Juicy Marketing” training was in high-demand around the world.

But Lisa learned that just because something is successful and people like it, doesn’t mean you have to keep doing it.

She always knew she had a low tolerance for not being happy (after all, she left a “successful” corporate career, with companies like AT&T and Lipton at age 28), but now she knows her mission is to help other mission-based business owners get fucking real so they can get out of their own way and help more people!

Lisa Cherney is host of the ground-breaking Get F**cking Real Podcast and founder of the GFR Squad, a lively community that gives people permission to get f**cking real in order to better fulfill their mission.

Other fun fucking real facts about Lisa are:

She is lazy (This inspires lots of creativity on how to get shit done with the least amount of effort)

She loves TV (This is how she unwinds and her TiVo is one of her most prized possessions)

She can’t spell for shit (Another outlet for creativity)

She likes being naked outside (A discovery made later in life, so you will not be successful Googling “Lisa Cherney college streaking”)

She didn’t want kids (Until 10 years into her marriage - She has one 13 year old and is convinced she got it “right” the first time.)

Her husband of 23 years is way cooler than her (He is an engineer who worked for Haagen Dazs, a chiropractor, a singer/songwriter and the World’s Greatest Dance Dad)

She is not a certified coach, does not have a marketing degree or an MBA (but mentors lots of people who have these credentials and she doesn’t hold it against them)

She doesn’t believe in limiting love (And her boyfriends are very happy about that)

She is from New Jersey and her parents are from Brooklyn (Thus partially explaining her love of the F word)

#28: From Hazardous Waste Officer to Health Restoration Expert

By Lisa Cherney | 11/21/2019 |

Maureen Vincenty is a former NASA scientist who became so fixated on preventative medicine and nutritional therapy that it morphed into an eating disorder that threatened her life.

Have you ever felt like you were living a double life? Are you currently presenting yourself to the world in one way while hiding a whole other part of who you are, what you do, or how you think?

Maureen started college as a pre-med student but when her mom was diagnosed with cancer, she was so disillusioned with the gaps in the healthcare industry, she switched to geology because, “rocks and planets and stars were a lot safer than people.” But her medical research didn’t stop there. She had a secret obsession with figuring out why her mom got sick, which led to her using her body as a science experiment.

In this week’s episode of the GFR Show, Maureen and I talk about her orthorexia (and explain exactly what that is), and she shares details of how her struggle with the disorder gifted her with the empathy and experience she needed to become the thriving transformative health coach she is today.

This one was really special for me. I saw a lot of parallels between Maureen’s story and my own, and was inspired to Get Fucking Real and share some personal parts of my journey that I’ve never talked about before. It’s raw and vulnerable, and I hope it empowers you to own and embrace all the authentic parts of you.

#27: From Rescued By A Stranger to Podcast Warrior

By Lisa Cherney | 11/14/2019 |

Today on the GFR Show, we’re excited to feature Justin Womack, a digital marketing specialist, an authority-building expert and co-host of the Marketing Geeks podcast.

Question: what if you were driving down the road and saw a car ahead of you lose control and sink into a murky swamp? Would you risk your life to save the driver? Well, a man named Jerry did and that’s why Justin Womack is still here today.

In this episode, you’ll hear about Justin’s incredible rescue and recovery, as well as the monumental transformation that happened in his life and business after this seemingly insurmountable wormhole moment took him to the literal brink of death.

This one really rebirthed my faith in humanity, and Justin’s account of how this harrowing experience gave him immense empathy and removed his fears and limiting beliefs around what he couldn’t do is beyond inspirational. Please, enjoy!

#26: Lisa’s Confession: Stopping Can Be Lucrative

By Lisa Cherney | 11/07/2019 |

Is there something you’re doing in your business or your life that doesn’t feel good anymore (if it ever did)? Can you imagine taking a break from it or stopping it all together? If not, tune in to hear Lisa explain how to challenge those voices that are telling you to just keep going.

In this episode, Lisa shares stories of times she put a stop to things that weren’t working for her, including shutting down her 7-figure business, and how things moved forward in a bigger way as a result. Tune in to learn the 3 different levels of stopping, and get clear on where you need to put on the brakes in your biz.

#25: From Creatively Repressed Copywriter to Award-Winning Fiction Author

By Lisa Cherney | 10/31/2019 |

Excited to welcome Michele PW (Pariza Wacek), Bestselling, award-winning author, and internal business copywriter, to the GFR Show.

Let’s start the conversation with this question, is your creativity fully expressed, or are you feeling creatively repressed? If someone had asked me this question, even just a few months back, I would have said, what creativity? But after this conversation with Michele, I see it clearly, and share more about this in the interview 😉

We all possess inherent creativity that is vital to our work. In this episode, you’re going to hear how one seemingly small comment, from an unqualified person, repressed Michele’s creativity for years. Her wormhole story is packed with GFRMoments, sure to inspire and invigorate your creativity. Enjoy.

She has so much wisdom to share with you in this episode, grab your comfy spot and your journal and let’s get real!

By Lisa Cherney | 10/17/2019 |

Today we give a big welcome to Sherry Watson, Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of The Power of Purpose, where they teach how to “Do Well by Doing Good.” 

Let me ask you, can you imagine being in a coma, trapped in your body yet fully awake and present to everything happening around you? This was Sherry’s experience, and little did she know at the time, this would go on to change the way the United States supports Americans with disabilities forever.

After recovering from a coma, Sherry received an appointment from the President of the United States and became the President of the National Disability Organization in Washington DC. To top all of that, she has designed and launched several successful organizations and corporations focused on social and economic value creation and strategic planning.

This episode is packed with inspiration as she talks about the journey that lead to her purpose. I’m so happy to share her with you on the GFR Show, enjoy!
