Sharon Lynn Wyeth will be here with her advice in just a moment on our Mentoring Minisode and first …
And now to the inspiring Sharon Lynn Wyeth.
How much do you think you can learn about someone from their name? Not their handwriting, but just their name?
According to Sharón Lynn Wyeth, founder of Neimology® Science, you can tell their past experience, their future health concerns, their unique personality traits, their strengths, challenges and even their purpose in life. Supposedly she can tell instantly how a person really thinks, feels and behaves—regardless of what they tell you!
And she says that’s because Neimology® is the science that discovers personality secrets hidden in the placement of the letters within names. Each letter in a name holds a key to unlock one’s true essence. A person’s name contains information about that individual’s gifts and challenges. Neimology® Science can even reveal the first and last impression people remember about us.
She helps HR departments choose the best candidates to interview, assists lawyers in how to present cases to judges, and in picking their juries; and also creates names for new business, new products and when people wish to change their name.
Melinda Wittstock: Sharón, welcome to WINGS.
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: It's so delightful to be here, Melinda.
Melinda Wittstock: I'm excited to talk with you. I am fascinated by what you do with Neimology, and I'm going to let you explain that in just a sec. But first, I want to ask you what's inspiring you right now?
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: Well, normally what's inspiring me is my understanding of the universe and the conversations with our creator, which literally led me into being able to interpret names. And so that's what normally inspires me.
Melinda Wittstock: Ah, so but what is inspiring you now, if that normally inspires you? Is there something else?
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: Yes. It's because, in this last month, I have been meeting the kindest people and it's really because of the current challenges going on since lightning hit a tree on Halloween that then hit the house, and there's been no electricity and no heat for a month now. And so-
Melinda Wittstock: All right. I'm just going to pause there and just say, “Oh, my God.” That is a challenge for sure. Gosh. But it's so interesting, when we have these challenges and these big setbacks, like being… I know you're in the Tennessee mountains, being there with no heating And all the hassle. And yet it brings out all the best in people. You start to see these amazing things as a result. So the challenge becomes the inspiration.
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: Well, and how everybody's pitched forward. It hit my house. It did not affect any of my neighbors, and everybody has pitched in to try to get my house fixed, starting with who needed to cut down the rest of the tree that blocked everything and chopped it all up into wood. And then we gave all the wood away to people that didn't have money for heat so that they could have the wood in their fireplaces.
So it's just been a series of events, and it's really interesting to me, though, is to watch different people's reactions. Some people get really upset that it happened. And I think everything is a mixed blessing. You just need to look for it. It's an inconvenience, and you think about it, “I will have been inconvenienced for a month,” and in that time my electrical wiring of the house, which was jerry-rigged from the previous owners, is totally up to code now. I have a new HVAC system. Half my roof is going to be new. If you look at the benefits that insurance is covering, God bless insurance, it's really nice, for just one month, an inconvenience.
Melinda Wittstock: Oh, what a beautiful way to look at it. I think some people so easily dwell on only the negative without seeing that these kind of roadblocks or challenges, or things that life sends along our way, are actually opportunities for growth, for healing, and for better electrical wiring, as would happen.
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: I think everything, Melinda, is how you look at it. It's kind of like you and I fly different places, and so you've got to go through and you either get radiated and you get a picture of you nude that's stored someplace, or you opt out. And every time I opt out, the people say, “Are you sure you don't want to go through that?” And I think, “Are you kidding? I get a free massage on the way through the airport. I'm not missing out.”
Melinda Wittstock: So, I want you to just explain really, really briefly what you do, what Neimology is, and then we'll go to the mentoring part of our Minisode here. So Neimology, what is it?
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: It is the study of the placement of the letters in a name and what that implies on the personality that the person will exhibit, and also what their purpose is and their passions throughout life.
Melinda Wittstock: It's amazing because you did this for me at the New Media Summit. You were doing your pitch to be a guest on a podcast, and I'm really grateful to have you on mine, and you said my name and you asked me if I had problems with my knees, and I do. I have lifelong issues with my knees, and you could get that from my name?
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: Yes. And, in fact, it's from the N-D combination. So anybody that has an N in their name followed by a D in their name would have challenges with their knees. And it came just for you because, in your first name, had it been in your last name, you would have inherited that, that that would have come down through the genes.
Melinda Wittstock: Oh, my goodness. Well, I just inherited it by being a figure skater and a skier and falling on my knees all the time and stressing them out. So how interesting. My goodness.
Okay, well let's switch over to the advice part of our minisode, and I'm curious what your top three go-to pieces of advice are for women in business, women entrepreneurs, at whatever stage of the business journey they're on.
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: Well, I jokingly say that I do not give advice to anyone because I don't want to add vice to their lives, but I'll make three [crosstalk [spp-timestamp time="00:05:20"] suggestions. And number one is, trust your instincts. You know best. You can get the best advice, but still trust your instincts. And number two would be hire a coach that's been and done what you want to go and do, so that you can follow in footsteps and then modify what they've done, but you have a successful path to follow. And the third one is to take risks and then to learn from those risks, because people that play the safe route and don't take risk don't succeed.
Melinda Wittstock: Gosh, that is so, so true. So, brilliant advice. Thank you. And Sharón, how can people find you and work with you to kind of leverage your Neimology. I could see lots of applications for that, in business and in life. How can people find you?
Sharón Lynn Wyeth: The easiest way to find me is on the website, knowthename.com and it's “K-N-O-W the name.” Or, if you go to thenamelady.com. Either one will get you right to me.
Melinda Wittstock: Fantastic. Thank you so much for putting on your wings and flying with us.
