We talk therapy. We talk sadness. We talk anger. We talk spirituality. We talk commercials. We talk about our dogs. We talk how and why she started her brand. In this episode you get to meet a literal LIGHT. Summer's clothing brand is all about reassurance, validation, and love. I learned in this hour chatting to her that she radiates all of those …
 
Just some ol' college besties catching up and chatting about support systems. That's right folks, I'm being joined by the ever-so-beautiful Kat, Gina, and Jen. (You can't call them by those names, but I can.) On a real note though, this episode is so deep but also so FUN. We talk about how vulnerability is necessary but difficult, how hard it is to…
 
I'm bringing it back to day -379... I discovered growth mindset when a college professor brought it up to me. 2 years before the podcast began. It was absolutely LIFE-CHANGING. I was one of those kids that thought, "if someone else can do it better, why do I even try?"... And I lived my life feeling that level of defeated about A LOT of stuff. So, …
 
We loved part 1 of the conversation with Jessica & Kevin. Part 2 is even better. We dig into some real deep topics. Why do we go to self-criticism first? How do we turn that around and comfort ourselves? How do we cultivate true confidence? How do we attract people that are good for us? Jessica's personal background and her career as an akashic rec…
 
Entrepreneurs, energy-healers, and filmmakers. This is one creative-power-couple. I was lucky enough to sit down with Jessica and Kevin for more than 2 hours!!

The holidays are my favorite time of year... I love the abundant feeling and family-friendly orientation of it all. BUT... we all have those moments during the holidays where we receive a little extra judgement. This episode is geared towards those moments. You know, the holiday dinner where your aunt asks you why you aren't married yet, or the tre…
 
It's pretty amazing what happens when you speak with another woman about your journey. It's even more amazing when the other woman is vulnerable, reassuring, funny, intelligent, and kind. You know that feeling when you walk away from a great hang out with a joyous friend? That's the feeling I got after sitting down with Yaa. Yaa is a mindset mentor…
 
The less-obvious but just as important & influential to our happiness? Money. Not necessarily the amount of it, but the management of it. Poor financial health can be tied to feelings of powerlessness, frustration, confusion, etc. Good financial health can lead you to feeling empowered, in-control, and confident. Say NO to the shame and confusion w…
 
With the continuation of this pandemic, the loss of jobs, and an upcoming election, I don't know about you but my chest feels like it's getting tighter by the minute!

What really is BLM? How can you educate yourself? What is the correct information? How do we find the correct information? How can we be better allies?

She tells her story and, e…
 
This one's a little less... positive shall we say? It's more real. Self-acceptance is a journey - and not one for the light-hearted. It can't be boiled down to a pretty & inspiring Instagram post (as much as I try). It can't be practiced just when you are loving life and working hard and doing everything right. Acceptance should be practiced when t…

How is the Bible a multi-genre text and how does r…
