FREE WORKSHOP ~> Unless you had some kind of utopian upbringing, it’s likely that you were taught how to use logic, reason, and rationale to dictate your choices and actions… to ensure you were doing the “right” thing. But, it’s highly unlikely that someone taught you how to be still, listen to your internal knowing, and lean on your intuition for guidance. In fact, many of us receive a shit-ton of messages about what God deems “right”, what our parents deem “right” or what society tells us is “right”. Nevermind what we intuit as “right”. So, then you hear personal development peeps (possibly even me) tell you to listen to your intuition and what your “gut is telling you” and you’re like, “Ummmmm… Sure. I’ll get right on that. Right after I do my pros and cons list.” It can feel like a foriegn task to listen to your internal knowing when you have constantly leaned on everyone and everything outside of yourself to aid in your decision-making. This week on the show, I’m so thrilled to dial up an expert on the subject of Intuition. L’Erin Alta is a powerful medicine woman + mystic living in full devotion to her spiritual calling. She helps black women, femme, and gender expansive folk make money from a soul-filled place. Um, hello! In this rich convo, we discuss the concept of “God” and how that intersects with Intuition, the damaging conditioning of some religion, the connection between intuition and abundance, and what it looks like to lean into and allow your intuition to speak to you. Get ready for a handful of “ah-ha” moments! This pod explores: Understanding the definition of intuition and why it’s so tough for many of us to tap into it Untangling guidance from “Source” and religious dogma The #1 step to tapping in and honing your intuition How intuition is directly related to our relationship with abundance ______ PERKS FOR THE POD-IANCE This podcast is sponsored by BetterHelp and The Joy Junkie Show Podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at BetterHelp.com/thejoyjunkie.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Find yourself dreading holiday functions with your family because it’s only a matter of time until your mom pesters you about why you don’t go to church anymore… or you aunt gives you shit for not having kids or not being married… or your uncle gets in a heated (uncomfortable) “discussion” about gun rights? Or perhaps you’re dreading the impending convo where your bro asks you for money. Again. Even though the holidays are supposed to be merry and bright, they can often be the most stressful when it comes to dealing with our families. Enter years of baggage, a shit-ton of guilt, mix in some alcohol, and you have a family holiday that leaves you feeling like shit instead of connected with those you supposedly love the most. If this sounds any kind of familiar, all is not lost. And, believe it or not, you can totally take back your holiday experience, boundary your ass off, and consciously CHOOSE your focus this holiday. Even if your sister is an ass-hat. This pod explores: How to prepare for your family function ahead of time to set you up for success… even if your family is giving the circus a run for their money What it really looks like to set up healthy boundaries and actually follow through on them How to avoid (or end) uncomfortable conversations with the utmost grace How to decide exactly what you want to focus on during the get-together… you know, so you can actually enjoy yourself ______ PERKS FOR THE POD-IANCE This podcast is sponsored by BetterHelp and The Joy Junkie Show Podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at BetterHelp.com/thejoyjunkie.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> You want to start your own biz, but you’re not sure you’re ‘good’ enough. You want to put your name in for the promotion, but you often think, “I’m not experienced enough”. You want to go back to school, but you often feel like you’re not young enough to start over. No matter what the goal… there is this constant phrase on loop in your mind… Not enough, not enough, not enough. UGH! Sound familiar? If so, join the club. No, seriously. In my decade+ of working in personal development, I can tell you that the idea that “I’m not enough” is probably one of the most common, deep-seated beliefs people hold. And, the bitch of it all, is that it damn-near always stifles your growth and keeps you from going after what you really want in your life. In essence, feeling “not enough’ can contribute to a shit-ton of unnecessary heartache and unhappiness. In this week’s show, I look at four concepts you can employ to bust out of feeling ‘less than’ and step into some serious worthiness and self-confidence. Get ready to shed that old belief and get into some serious life-changing action! This pod explores: How feeling ‘not enough’ shows up in ways we don’t expect The lie you’ve likely bought into about what defines ‘enough’ My favorite tool to help you really, truly feel like ‘enough’ in all areas of your life _____ This podcast is sponsored by BetterHelp and The Joy Junkie Show Podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at BetterHelp.com/thejoyjunkie.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> So… You’re going to an event where you’ll see people you haven’t seen for a hot minute. And you’re a few pants sizes bigger than when they saw you last and you can’t stop ruminating on what people are going to think/say about your weight. What will be running through their minds!? They will all be judging me! I’m so disgusting! I can’t go out like this!  We’ve all been there. But have you ever stopped to think why we find this to be the absolute WORST thing that could happen to a woman? Could it possibly be that our culture values men for what they can produce and values women for what they look like? Of course it is. So, it’s no wonder that most of us grow up with the idea that we need to constantly improve our bodies and for the love of god, lose some damn weight already! Never enough. Never fucking enough. And, we get this message everywhere. From our families, media, romantic partners, media, advertising. Everywhere. In this week’s episode, I have the great fortune to dial up Susan Hyatt, a master certified life and business coach, who sounds OFF on the constant pull to perfect and constantly shrink our bodies in order to be deemed acceptable by society, how it’s a giant pile or patriarchal bullshit, and what we can actually do about it. Susan also talks about the connection between diet culture and hustle culture and why dismantling both of these concepts is essential to our self-worth and happiness. Have a listen and get ready for a healthy dose of freedom. This pod explores: The origin of diet culture in the U.S. and how that relates to graham crackers The connection between diet culture and hustle culture and why they both need to be dismantled How trying to “shrink” your body is a metaphor for you playing small and not taking up space Where to start if you have been at war with your body for decades ______ PERKS FOR THE POD-IANCE This podcast is sponsored by BetterHelp and The Joy Junkie Show Podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at BetterHelp.com/thejoyjunkie.

Ever find yourself having a type grip on controlling damn near everything and wonder why-the-hell you have that tendency? Or maybe you constantly try to make everyone else happy and find yourself pleasing everyone (except yourself) and you’re starting to see that this behavior is just not working anymore. Or perhaps you don’t think anything is worth doing unless it is absolute PERFECT so you end up overthinking and procrastinating. Any of those sound familiar? What if I told you that there was a tool that could help you understand why you are pulled to these behaviors and what you can do to either embrace them, re-brand them, or alter them from a place of personal power? You’d be all over it, right? Spoiler: THERE IS A TOOL! Bet you didn’t see that coming (lol).  This week on the show, I’m so excited to have Sarajane Case share her vault of wisdom on how the Enneagram can provide huge insight into our shadow selves (the things about us that we aren’t so thrilled about), how we behave when we are stressed, and how we can truly honor our strengths. Sarajane provides a rich perspective on how understanding our Enneagram type can help offer ourselves huge doses of compassion while we work on embracing who we are and genuinely believing in ourselves. Be sure to grab a pen and paper because Sarajane throws out a bunch of journaling prompts you won’t want to miss! This pod explores: How to look at the fucked up part of ourselves and actually not hate ourselves for it (Wait.. WHAT!?) Understanding the 9 enneagram types and what that means for how you view your self-worth Journal prompts/inquiries for each type to help you access your strengths and access some self-belief Understanding how the self-help industry is failing us (All dramatic) ______ PERKS FOR THE POD-IANCE This podcast is sponsored by BetterHelp and The Joy Junkie Show Podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at BetterHelp.com/thejoyjunkie.

LOVE POD TOUR ~> Are you worthy of love? Yes. Of course. Absolutely. But do you believe you are worthy of love? That’s an entirely different question altogether.  If you have ever questioned if you are lovable or deserving of love, you are amongst great company, my friend. Whether it be a rough example in your formidable years of what someone must be/do to deserve love or whether it be a challenging relationship that constantly made you doubt your worth, it is unbelievably common to adopt a disempowering belief that you are simply not worthy, not deserving of love. And, our society certainly doesn’t do us any favors with the barrage of media images of the select few who are perfectly white, wealthy, straight, young, and thin who are clearly deserving of love but the rest of us? The rest of us might as well get used to the idea that “We’re not worthy” [Wayne + Garth voice]. And then we do our damnedest to FORCE others to love us. Maybe if we’re perfect or if we achieve enough or if we constantly make sure everyone else is happy, we’ll get some of this illusive love we’ve heard of.  If any of this feels a bit like a punch to the gut, then you definitely need to have a listen to this week’s show. I discuss what believing you are lovable IS, what it IS NOT, what gets in the way of attaining this belief, and how to actually start shifting it. Get you some. This pod explores: The simple (but not necessarily easy) path to believing you are worthy of love Understanding how you developed the belief that you aren’t lovable in the first place (Hi, Family of Origin!) and what you can do to change it What’s at stake if you continue down a path of believing you aren’t lovable (Hint: Continuing to allow bullshit in your relationships is a part of it) Why actually *believing* you’re worthy IS NOT the first place to start when you intentionally shift your beliefs _____ WORTHY IN LOVE PODCAST TOUR My dear friend and colleague Veronica Grant asked me to talk to her community about how to actually feel worthy in love. I mean… Yes, please! When she invited me to join her How to Actually Feel Worthy in Love Podcast Tour and give you an honest look at what it really takes to build a healthy relationship, I jumped at the chance to share with you all. I’m honored to be here, smack dab in between The Dating Den with Marni Batista and It’s Complicated with Jen and Lauren, two other badass podcasts a part of the tour.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Just believe in yourself, they said. It will be easy, they said. Good vibes only, they said. So, why-the-hell does it feel like it will take an act of god to actually believe in yourself!? If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why self belief feels so damn illusive, you are certainly not alone. I mean, if you’re worried about what others think about you and you constantly find yourself spinning off into the land of “what ifs” it can be hard to simply tell yourself “you’ve got this” and actually believe it, amiright!? In this week’s episode, I share 10 tangible tips you can implement TODAY that will aid you in cultivating some confidence and belief in self. Maybe you find yourself second guessing every choice you make or everything you say. Maybe you worry what your family will think if you tell them you aren’t a fan of marriage or having kids or running the family business. Or maybe you’re just sick and tired of getting in your own way so damn much. If any of that sounds like you, be sure to grab a pen and paper because this episode is loaded with ideas you’ll want to record and use. Like, yesterday. This pod explores: My favorite confidence-boosting assignment that will give you an immediate dopamine hit When to use positive self-talk to pump yourself up and when it is absolute WORST thing you can do (Wait, what!? Yep.)

JOIN MEL'S *FREE* 5-DAY CHALLENGE ~> Ok, so let’s all collectively try to not freak out.  Mel Robbins is on the show this week.  Like, THE Mel Robbins.  The Mel Robbins who’s sold millions of copies of her highly sought-after books, spoken to some of the biggest audiences all over the world, and who has built one of the biggest personal empowerment movements to date. Yeah… no big deal. So, let me ask you a question. When you look in the mirror, how do you usually feel? What are the feelings that come up? (Ugh, Amy, really!?) How do you speak to yourself? Do you immediately pick yourself apart, assessing all the things you loathe about yourself? Or maybe you avoid the mirror altogether because you never have a good feeling engaging with yourself. Well, what if… what if you actually got excited to connect with that person in the mirror? What if you actually got a thrill and burst of dopamine by engaging with your image in a totally different way? What the hell are you even talking about, you may be wondering.  In this super fun and candid chat, Mel shares with me a new tool she used everyday in the mirror for over a year that completely changed her life. And it can change yours too. What is it you may ask? A simple high-five. To yourself. In the mirror. Every day. Why does it work? In a word: Science.

FREE WORKSHOP~> Ever find yourself *not* speaking up even though something your co-worker said just didn’t sit right with you? Or have you ever wondered if you and your partner have somewhat of a codependent relationship? Or maybe you have an out-of-body reaction if you sense that your family doesn’t approve of your recent choice to move to another state. As in, if you’re not seeking approval, like, what are you even doing? All of these scenarios are examples of ways we can abandon ourselves and make everyone else and every thing outside of us much more important. We often adopt behavior like silencing ourselves, becoming codependent, saying “yes” when we really mean “no”, and a ton of other tactics to legitimately keep ourselves safe. Seriously. We do it because somewhere along the line, we realized these behaviors could serve as a coping mechanism. And, then, one day, you realize that these methods of coping just aren’t working anymore.  In this week’s show, (the second of a two-part series) I look at 12 common ways we tend to abandon ourselves in order to search for our worth and happiness in external factors. Because many of these behaviors are tactics we adopted to stay safe and protect ourselves, so this certainly isn’t a chastisement but rather a way to examine what we do, why we do it, and how to choose behaviors that feel empowering and honoring. Grab a pen and paper because this episode is loaded with at-home assignments! This pod explores: Learning how to acknowledge your feelings and my favorite tool to address emotions (without feeling widely freaked out) Understanding what a codependent relationship may look like and what to do if you find yourself in this situation My absolute favorite self-talk statement if you struggle with constant approval seeking Discerning when to say ‘no’ and when to say ‘yes’ and the best tip for saying ‘no’ without feeling like an asshole ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Don’t rock the boat. Don’t open up a can of worms. Sweep it under the rug. We have so many idioms that metaphorically express a common message: KEEP. QUIET. And if we unpack that message even further, there are a few inferences: 1) If you do speak up there is something wrong with you and 2) You should make other people’s comfort more important than your own truth. Oof. Listen, chronically and consistently putting others in front of ourselves is poison disguised as nobility. Early on we learn that taking care of everyone else and making sure everyone else is okay is our life’s work. That it is noble to sacrifice Self. At all costs. But, there is a grave cost to constantly seeking approval outside of yourself, hiding who you are, and dismissing your own needs. In a word, Self-Abandonment. (Well, two words hyphenated.) The idea that we discount who we are and what we need in order to make everyone else happy. Or possibly because we don’t believe we even deserve to be happy. In this week’s show, (the first of a two-part series) I look at 12 common ways we tend to abandon ourselves in order to search for our worth and happiness in external factors. Many of these behaviors are tactics we adopted to stay safe and protect ourselves, so this certainly isn’t a chastisement but rather a way to examine what we do, why we do it, and choose behaviors that feel empowering and honoring. Grab a pen and paper because there are many real-world assignments for you to implement.  This pod explores: Understanding the pull to abandon ourselves and how this is a completely normal defense mechanism The instinct to people-please and how to know when it’s healthy and when it’s not Learning to lean into your intuition and what the hell that even means (and my favorite first step) The missing piece of practicing vulnerability and how to actually do it ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Tell me if any of this sounds familiar: You can’t stop ruminating about a conversation you had earlier in the week and you keep replaying the situation over and over and over… worrying about what was or wasn’t said. Or, you start to have a complete out-of-body if you ever sense that you aren’t “needed” by someone… a family member, boss, friend, whoever. Or maybe you find yourself making sure that everyone else is okay so damn much that you have no idea what you truly like, value, or enjoy. If any of those concepts ring a bell, you may have a bit of codependency on your hands. Now, before you freak out and self-diagnose… It’s important to know that we are all a bit codependent in some way. And, it’s not always a bad thing. On this week’s pod, I’m thrilled to dial up Vanessa Bennett, a psychotherapist and codependency coach who shares a shit-ton of info on how to identify various codependent behaviors, why we tend to do these behaviors to begin with, and what we can do to shift them. Vanessa sheds light on the connection between codependency and narcissism and the ways we use maladaptive coping mechanisms to keep ourselves safe from narcissistic parents, partners, colleagues, and friends. Have a listen as we unpack what’s truly going on with someone on the narcissistic spectrum and what you can do to preserve your personal power when dealing with such individuals. This convo was so packed with deep and delicious nuggets of wisdom, I will be tuning in over and over again myself. Enjoy! This pod explores: Common symptoms of codependency (Spoiler alert: You WILL see yourself in some of these!)

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> Ever find yourself sacrificing what you want so you can cater to the needs of others? Like, you are exhausted from your day and desperately need some rest, but your bestie really wants you to come over and support her through (yet another) argument with her partner. Or, maybe you find yourself sacrificing what you want at work because you’ve convinced yourself you’re not “good enough”. These are classic examples of self-abandonment: essentially leaving your own wants, needs, and desires on the table. For a whole slew of reasons. This sort of behavior doesn’t spring up overnight. Often we shape this pattern by learning methods of survival when we are young, through messages we receive about what a “good woman” should be, and through our societal and patriarchal influences. On this week’s show, I was able to dial up an expert on all things self-abandonment. Dené Logan is a therapist and mindfulness coach who specializes in offering tools for reclaiming the self we’ve been conditioned to abandon through our lives. In this raw and intimate interview, we discuss how we’ve been taught to leave ourselves behind, where that pull comes from, and what we can do to start shifting it. Dené also powerfully explains how our obsession with masculine energy and characteristics tends to leave us empty and slamming the door on ourselves. If you find yourself constantly concerned about the opinions of others, or leaving yourself on the back burner, this episode is a must-listen. Get ready to make yourself important and access some serious inner belonging. This pod explores: The two needs all humans are born with and how those needs affect our tendency to abandon ourselves Dené’s favorite tool to start combatting the instinct to make everyone else happy at the cost of our own happiness Understanding masculine and feminine polarity and how that disrupts our ability to come to our own rescue What it really means to find “inner belonging” even if you’re like, “Yeah, right.” ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

How often have you apologized or beaten yourself up for your own body? How do you tweak your posture when you’re dealing with someone aggressive and domineering? How often do you disrespect your time by allowing others to be late or demand things of you last minute? All of these scenarios (and many more) indicate how comfortable you may be Taking. Up. Space. For many of us, we’ve been told that we aren’t as worthy or valid as the next person which often leads us to shrink and dim our shine in order to make other comfortable. You may find these situations all too familiar. I sure-as-hell have.  In this week’s episode, I explore the concept of “taking up space”, what that actually looks like, and how to start owning your personal power and self-worth. I look at seventeen different things you can start paying attention to in order to catapult your “enoughness” and start demanding a seat at the table. Get ready to own your brilliance and kick your confidence into high gear.

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> Have you ever wanted to negotiate a salary increase but weren’t really sure how? Or if you even deserved it? Have you had someone tell you that you are “too much”, “too loud”, or “too emotional”? And, then you shrink a little bit and proceed to dull your own shine. Have you ever looked around your life and noticed that you don’t have all that much fun anymore… like, whatever happened to pleasure? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it’s probably high-time you took up a bit more space and started to Make. Some. Damn. Noise. Already. Ok, Amy, that sounds fucking great, but HOW!? I’m so glad you asked. On this week’s show, I’m thrilled to dial up an expert on the subject of making some noise – My very own bestie, Andrea Owen. In her third book (available end of August 2021), Andrea looks at the myriad of ways that women silence themselves in their lives, ultimately keeping them small and disempowered. Creep our conversation where we discuss the role that religion, the patriarchy, and internalized misogyny play on how women feel about themselves and their choices. And, in turn, why we often don’t speak up, don’t ask for what we want, and continue to put everyone in front of ourselves… and what-the-hell we can do about it. If you’re ready for a serious dose of confidence, personal power, and a bit of rebellion, grab a pen, my friend. This pod explores: What to do if you’ve always been told you are “too much” or “too loud” or “too sensitive” What it really means for women to start asking for what they want (and why we often don’t) Andrea’s 4-step process to “Unlearning” the behaviors that have kept you small What “pleasure” has to do with empowerment and why you probably need more of it ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Ever find yourself stressed out because of events happening at work, and when you get home you find a perfect opportunity to be critical of your partner for not putting their shoes away? Or loading the dishwasher properly? Or missing an important payment? Or maybe you can relate to feeling dismissed or micromanaged by your boss so you tend to be critical every time you speak about her to your bestie? Whenever we have a need that isn’t getting met, we can tend to put up our defenses and use the armor of criticism to express ourselves. And, you guessed it, it often is met with more dismissal or defensiveness and now everyone is blaming everyone. Supes productive, amiright!? [she says sarcastically] Ugh. So, what is one to do if you find yourself in a relationship (with a partner, work colleague, family member, whoever) where criticism is a constant? Maybe you’ve even found yourself starting to resent this other person or beginning to distance yourself from them because it’s a non-stop criticism battle. Fortunately, all is certainly not lost. On this week’s pod, I’m thrilled to dial-up an expert on the subject of navigating criticism in relationships.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> So, your partner gives you a little nudge that *maybe* you could do something a bit differently and you Totally. Fly. Off. The. Handle. Or maybe your bestie gently suggests that you may want to try to actually DO something about the shit-job you are always complaining about and you completely chew him out. If you have a hard time with feedback (uh-hem, criticism), you are certainly not alone, my friend. In fact, we are actually wired to defend ourselves if we feel attacked, so OF COURSE your knee-jerk reaction is to spout off reciprocal accusations and cast blame in the opposite direction. Listen, I’m not saying that your partner or your bestie is always in the right, but what I am saying is that it would likely serve you to dig a bit deeper and call yourself out on your shit. How? I’m so glad you asked. In this week’s episode, I discuss what to look for when experiencing criticism from others, how to know if there is any validity, and how to not let the whole damn thing destroy you. Not that I would know anything about that… [she says snidely]. This pod explores: How to know if you actually need to even listen to this criticism or not (And, yes, there are times when you can straight-up ignore the critic) What to do in the moment when you are about to unleash a beast on someone giving you a bit of feedback How to figure out if it’s a “You” issue or a “Them” issue… or both The first step you MUST take if you want to move through the criticism gracefully (even if the other person is an asshat) ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM? OF COURSE, YOU ARE! Is this the year you go from a people-pleasing, guilt-tripped perfectionist to a bold and boundaried badass? Um, yeah. I think it is! If you’re DONE feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and stressed out because you’re constantly doing, doing, doing for everyone else, then you must grab your seat in this brand-new workshop! You’ll learn the exact five-step process I take my clients through so they can let go of all the stress and angst of striving for “perfect” and caring waaaaay too much what everyone else thinks. It’s time to finally believe in yourself, find that self-confidence you crave, and start living your life for YOU.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Remember when the Law of Attraction was all the rage and everyone thought (maybe even you) that you could simply think about a million dollars and boom! it would suddenly be in your bank account… or magically under your mattress? Yeah. Me too. There is actually waaaay more to manifesting what you want in your life, especially if what you want is a lifelong love and partner. Permanent swipe right! Continuing our series on manifesting a soulmate, I’m chatting with Victoria Gallagher who is a world renowned leader in hypnotherapy and an authority on Law of Attraction. We dig into how we’re all constantly manifesting but we’re often stuck in such a negative spiral that we constantly attract more evidence that we are not lovable or “not enough”. And the cycle continues. Victoria shares her personal story of manifesting her husband, how long it took, and what she needed to let go of in order to be truly open and ready for love. We shed light on some serious myths and misconceptions about LOA and how it can apply to damn near anything in your life… not just manifesting an intimate partnership. If you want to unlock the ways you may be getting in your own way and start making shit happen already, time to grab a notebook and your earbuds. Enjoy.

What if someone could outline the exact mindset you’ve been stuck in that is arresting you from attracting your soulmate? What if someone could spell out why most relationships only last a few years and end with a serious power struggle and you know… what you can actually do about it. You’d be all over it, right!? You’re in luck, my love. On the show this week, I dial up Kira Sabin, a dear friend, colleague and a powerhouse in the field of attracting love and creating thriving relationships.

And, please don’t be fooled… this episode is NOT only about intimate partnerships. There is something to be gleaned for any woman struggling to believe in her own “enoughness”. Get into it.

FREE WORKSHEETS WITH THIS EPISODE ~> We get bombarded with messages about what true love looks like, but when we look around we don’t often see a shit-ton of fairytale romances. Or partnerships that are even happy, let alone blissful. So what does it really take to manifest your soulmate? I mean… are some people just lucky and everyone else is screwed? Hardly. Here’s the deal… No one ever teaches us how to prepare ourselves to be in a relationship. So, what happens? We usually just jump in and learn as we go… over-riding our intuition, ignoring warning signs, and inevitably taking on a bunch of “projects”. In this pod, I’ll have you dig into your deepest, truest desires for a partner. You’ll uncover what they look like, act like, what your life looks like together, and who you intend to be inside your relationship. We’re dreamin’ this week and next week we’ll be schemin’. This episode is the first of a two-part series I have created to equip you with all the tools necessary to summon up your soulie. Don’t worry… you don’t have to chant, or burn anyone’s hair, or pray to an altar. In fact, you already have everything you need. Intrigued? Have a listen. This pod explores: What to do with your pesky Inner Critic while you manifest your soulie (the one who tells you you’re being too picky and unrealistic… yeah, you know the one) The number one reason why you haven’t found your heart’s twin yet (and it’s super simple to fix!) My favorite exercise I’ve given clients and students to manifest their partner and I shit you not, I’ve been invited to five weddings because of it! (One I even officiated!)

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Ever wonder what it really takes to keep love alive long-term? Ever see happy couples and wonder what-the-hell their secret is? (I mean… Considering you’re ready to strangle your spouse… like, always). In the near twenty-four years we’ve been together, Mr. Smith and I have consistently and repeatedly been asked what our secrets are to not just a long-term marriage but a happy one. Plenty of people stay together, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that they aren’t all that happy… maybe just okay… and sometimes flat-out miserable. So, what does it really take to keep love alive and FUN over multiple decades? Well, you’re in luck. In this episode, Mr. Smith is back on the show and we candidly and openly talk about six major factors that have kept our marriage strong, fun, and intimate. And, speaking of rocket science, many of our “secrets” aren’t all that hard… it’s just likely you’ve never been taught. Have a listen and you just may completely change the trajectory of your relationship. This pod explores: How to stop making your relationship feel like work (Ugh… don’t we already have enough work?)

FREE WORKSHOP ~> What if I told you your handwriting speaks volumes (no pun intended) about your confidence, self-esteem, ability to speak up for yourself, and how much concern you take with the opinions of others? You’d be like, “Now, wait. What!? Come again?” I know, I know. Stay with me. Believe it or not, it’s actually part of a scientific process called our Ideomotor Response which refers to the way we communicate our subconscious thoughts through our physical being… a.k.a. Handwriting. (Pssst… it’s also how ouija boards work too, so SPOILER ALERT, it wasn’t your deceased Aunt Helen trying to convey a message to you.) A few years ago, I went through a wildly fascinating certification in Handwriting Analysis and I think you may find this tool surprisingly helpful in setting and establishing boundaries. Not to mention that it’s super easy and simple… it may be one of the easiest personal growth tools you ever use. Like, you literally just write a bit differently. You in? In this episode, I spill some little-known secrets on how slight alterations to your handwriting can change how often and how well you speak up for yourself. If you like to geek out on the hybrid of science and woo, this is up your alley. Get out a blank sheet of paper and a pen and get ready to boundary your ass off. This episode explores: Understanding the Ideomotor Response and how it registers in our handwriting What you need to do with the margins of your page if you want to establish boundaries The letter that symbolizes communication and how you can shape them to better speak up for yourself The serial killer’s handwriting sample I reviewed during my certification and what it indicated about them ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> What if you could listen in to a coaching session where someone is being coached on how to establish much-needed boundaries with overbearing and controlling siblings? You’d be all over it, right? I mean… who hasn’t struggled to set up boundaries with family. Hello! In this coaching episode, I work with a lovely and highly accomplished woman, Isabel, on her constant struggle to be heard and taken seriously as the youngest of five siblings. When I asked how she struggled to set and enforce boundaries, here is what she shared with me: I need help with my family! I have three older sisters, and two of them think they are my mothers and have tried to boss me around my whole life. I’m almost 47, and it is time for this to stop! There are no boundaries — they voice their opinion on my religious practices (or rather lack thereof), that I moved to another state (can’t imagine why I would want to do that!), that I chose not to have children, etc.  Nothing is sacred or private, and it has gotten so much worse since my Dad passed this past March. I am so thankful to finally be aware of all this and the fact that it needs to stop, but I could really use your help in implementing these changes. Four plus decades of bad behavior is hard to turn around! In this episode, I help Isabel work through her family dynamic and the constant need to “sweep everything under the rug” which has often led to resentment and many vitriolic eruptions. We discuss some specific things she can do to get ahead of tough conversations with her sisters, how to not get caught up in the emotion, and how to follow through on the boundaries she sets. Be sure to have your pen and paper handy and get ready to swipe Isabel’s homework for your own! This pod explores: Specific verbiage to use when a family member catches you off-guard or if they are yelling and name-calling How to approach a difficult conversation with an abrasive and controlling family member How to identify both the surface issue and the root issue (aka the real issue) of what you and your family may not see eye to eye about My favorite tool to examine what stories you may be making up about your family ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Have you ever found yourself referring to someone in your life by saying, “They simply don’t have any boundaries!”? Maybe it’s an overbearing boss or a parent who is all up in your business and you find yourself labeling them as the one who has no boundaries. What if it was actually the other way around… what if it was about YOU who hadn’t established any boundaries with them? When someone in your life is forceful and brazen, it can be so easy to assign blame to them and focus on why they are a complete asshat instead of examining the behavior you may be tolerating. Perhaps it’s about what you haven’t said up until this point… the behavior you continue to allow. And maybe you constantly complain about how frustrating your mom is or how aggravating your co-worker is, yet you complain to the wrong party. To those who may give you sympathy, but who aren’t capable of creating any substantial change. On the show this week, I dial up Kate Anthony, a dear friend, colleague and a powerhouse in the field of ultimate boundary setting: maneuvering through divorce. In this candid conversation, we discuss the areas where women tend to struggle with boundaries, tactics to start speaking up for yourself, and how to reclaim your power. And, please don’t be fooled… this episode is NOT only about divorce. There is something to be gleaned for any woman struggling to speak up for herself in a powerful way. Get some. This pod explores: The most common areas where women have difficulty speaking up for their wants, needs, and opinions Where [the hell] to start if you know you need to start establishing boundaries The sexual boundary that many women don’t even realize is available to them How Kate managed to have a stellar divorce even though her marriage was hugely abusive ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have undoubtedly heard the notion of “setting boundaries”, but have you ever wondered exactly what that means? Or maybe you drummed up the nerve to tell someone (like, your mom, boss, or bestie) how you really felt about something only to be blatantly ignored? (Or worse… not even taken seriously.) How do you actually go about establishing boundaries that are clear, respected, and adhered to? It’s hard enough to broach a challenging topic with someone, let alone follow through on your boundary. Here’s the deal… if you’ve been constantly bitchin’ and moanin’ about something, and you’ve been super vocal about it to everyone, except the person who really needs to know you’re (ah-hem) “upset”, then it’s probably time to have a tough convo. In this week’s episode, I share my three-step process to establishing boundaries in a way in which you can be heard and own your personal power.

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> If you’ve struggled with anxiety, you know how challenging and seemingly insurmountable it can be. It can feel like your racing thoughts and worry simply can’t be redirected no matter how hard you try. So, you ruminate and worry. Ruminate and worry. Feeling like your mind just won’t turn off. Trust… I have been there, my friends. And, so has my guest on this week’s show. Shaina Gadow struggled with anxiety for her entire life and it manifested as extreme hypochondria and obsessive thoughts about the danger her body may be in. In working toward her own healing, she found the world of Emotional Freedom Technique, commonly called EFT or “tapping” and was soon able to relinquish her anxiety and stress. And, try not to get too excited, but she recorded a special training just for us to help us do the same! Score! In this episode, Shaina shares her story (which I’m sure you will find familiar) and outlines how tapping can be used for a multitude of different issues including anxiety and overwhelm. In addition to her competency with EFT, Shaina also practices Matrix Healing which can dig even deeper into solving unresolved trauma that manifests as anxiety. If you find yourself constantly battling anxiety, consumed by worry, or having a difficult time letting go of stress, you won’t want to miss this special “tool” episode. This pod explores: Shaina’s super easy tactic you can use in anxious moments to immediately calm your stress (even if you’re surrounded by people) A completely free video training walking you through a simple tapping process to curb your anxiety The difference between E.F.T. (or tapping) and Matrix Healing and what the hell that even means (hint: it’s really good news for squashing your anxiety) The tools Shaina used to break free from debilitating and lifelong anxiety ______ *FREE* HYPNOSIS MEDITATION ON FEAR + ANXIETY READY TO RELEASE THAT PENT UP ANXIETY AND FEAR?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Overthinking. Chronic worry. Mentally obsessing and ruminating. Contemplating worst-case scenarios. Racing heart. Sweaty palms. No, I’m not describing a character in a horror film. I’m describing something that many of us deal with on a daily basis: Anxiety. Anxiety is directly connected to our primitive human fear response, and is actually a way our brain is just trying to take care of us and keep us safe. But that notion isn’t so reassuring when we are stressing ourselves out non-stop about what others think of us, worry we accidentally left the flat iron on, or obsessively worry we might die on our way to work. On this week’s show, I am thrilled to dial up an expert on the subject. LaToya Newton and I met at the end of 2020 and instantly bonded over our anxiety disorders, our strict religious upbringing, and our mutual love of a good “f” bomb. I wanted to bring her on the show to discuss her journey with anxiety and depersonalization (a specific symptom of anxiety), her specific tactics to curb anxious behavior, and how she has found her own personal power through speaking publicly about her struggles. We dig into the different anxiety treatments available from CBT therapy to cannabis and everything in-between. We also look at the stigmas around dealing with mental health that LaToya dealt with as a Black woman and how masturbation can help stave off anxiety. Yes, I said what I said. This was a super fun interview and you won’t want to miss it. This pod explores: LaToya’s personal story of dealing with depersonalization as a symptom of anxiety (and what that even means) Dealing with family and friends who tell you to “just pray about it” when you’re struggling with anxiety or mental health Multiple forms of therapy that can dramatically improve anxious tendencies (and we *may* also discuss masturbation as an anxiety relief tactic) LaToya’s personal “formula” for combatting anxiety and how you can create one for yourself ______ *FREE* HYPNOSIS MEDITATION ON FEAR + ANXIETY READY TO RELEASE THAT PENT UP ANXIETY AND FEAR?

FREE WORKSHOP You have a job interview coming up, but you can’t calm your mind from thinking about the worst-case scenarios. You have a huge presentation coming up at work, and every time you think about it, your palms sweat, and your heart races. You have a family event coming up and damn-it if your mother-in-law doesn’t spike your anxiety! Or maybe you can’t remember a time in your life when anxiety hasn’t been present. It doesn’t have to be a strenuous job interview or family event to get your heart racing… it just races all. The damn. Time. Whether you struggle with situational anxiety or chronic anxiety, the effects can be downright debilitating. And, although anxiety disorders and anxious thoughts are more commonplace than ever, it can be challenging to find tactics and strategies that actually help. Of course, we all know there’s weed or traditional western medicine approaches, but what do you do if you don’t dig those options? Just white-knuckle it the whole time? Hardly. In this week’s show, I share my intimate, personal journey with anxiety, where anxiety originates from, and a bevy of ways you can tackle this beast whether you tend toward traditional western medicine or prefer alternative options. You may have anxiety, but honey, it does not have you.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> What if you could listen in to a coaching session where someone is being coached on their relationship to perfectionism? You’d be all over it, right? Well, you’re in luck, my friend. In this coaching episode, I work with a lovely and highly accomplished woman, Ify, on her struggle of constantly putting things off until they can be “perfect” and how that has been seriously arresting some big goals and dreams.  When I asked how perfectionism was showing up in her life, here is what she shared with me: Perfectionism has been the reoccurring thorn in my spine since I was a little girl. I always struggle with this idea that everything I do, every work I put out has to have the look or the illusion of perfection. What I’ve found is that this leads to failure to launch. I always get to the very brink, then I experience analysis paralysis. It’s put my whole life on this giant pause, still waiting. On the exterior, I can give the impression that I’m bold, and I have it all figured out but internally I’m second-guessing every little decision.   We look at the influence of her highly accomplished parents and how her father’s voice has turned into her inner voice, the constant pull to edit, and edit, and redo and redo, and how she is highly attached to the opinions of everyone else. Creep our session, have a pen and paper handy and get ready to steal Ify’s homework for yourself.  This pod explores: How to let go of perfectionism if you fear that it’s the only thing keeping you in a state of excellence The role of emotional intelligence in learning to process when things don’t go “perfectly” Untangling the behaviors of our parents and their influence around perfectionism Determining when excellence is being called for and when it’s time to loosen the grip a bit ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> In this week’s show, I am thrilled to bring you a “tool” episode where I share a lesser-known modality that can aid you in working with perfectionist tendencies. Um, yes, please! I hadn’t heard about Human Design until I was a guest on Kelsey’s Abbott’s podcast and I was like, “You mean, like, the way humans are designed?” I didn’t realize that it was actually a very specific process or tool to discover more about who you are, what your strengths are, and the obstacles you may face (like, a tight grip on perfectionism). In this episode, I bring Kelsey onto my show to discuss the multiple energy types featured in the Human Design ideology, how they all uniquely struggle with perfectionist behaviors, and Kelsey’s favorite way to start dismantling and working with that behavior. If you find yourself worrying about what everyone else thinks if you aren’t fucking perfect, find yourself procrastinating because things just “aren’t good enough yet”, or constantly compare yourself to others, you won’t want to miss this episode!

FREE WORKSHOP ~> I used to flippantly refer to myself as a Perfectionist and oftentimes I would elude to it being somewhat of a badge of honor. As I got older and my anxiety increased, I realized that being a chronic perfectionist was actually STEALING my joy instead of making my job easier. But, how does one just stop being a perfectionist? Perhaps you find yourself in the same boat; Vacillating between being SOLD on the idea that everything has to be just perfect and the conflicting desire to let things “go with the flow” or just be “good enough”. If you’ve found yourself in this dance, you are most certainly not alone. In this week’s episode, I break down just how detrimental the strive for perfection can be and how it often leads to much suffering, frustration, and angst. Additionally, I dig into 4, easy-to-implement steps you can take to begin allowing room for your humanity without sacrificing excellence and how you can maintain your integrity AND your sanity. This pod explores: Why “Perfect” doesn’t really exist and how the pursuit of perfection can be #supes detrimental How to figure out the personal “Rules” you’ve established for yourself that have locked you into perfectionism My favorite tool to catch and re-route your perfectionism in the moment (without overthinking it to death) How to allow room for excellence and integrity in what you do, without the “pressure of perfect” ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Well, it’s the end of an era, my friends. Eight years ago, I had the notion of starting a humble life and love podcast and wanted to have a sidekick of sorts to bounce things off of during the show. Considering Mr. Smith was the only other person in the household, he graciously obliged. Now, here we are, millions of downloads and thousands of subscribers later, bidding him the fondest of farewells. Mr. Smith has been the “voice of the people” and one of the most integral pieces of the podcast over the years. He will be missed greatly but he’s off to accomplish some big dreams, so join us on this farewell episode where we take a nostalgic walk through the last eight years. I turn the tables and interview him on the biggest lessons he’s learned over the years, how he feels our relationship has grown, his perspective as a cis-gendered male speaking to a largely cis-gendered female audience, and so very much more. We truly hope you enjoy this candid conversation about his journey in sharing my work with the world and what that meant for us behind the scenes. Insider scoop ahead.

FREE WORKSHOP ~> So, you consciously “know” that you should be proud of all your accomplishments and acknowledge that you are, in fact, deserving of that promotion/accolade/compliment but why don’t you actually believe it? I’ll tell you why. Logic, reason, and rationale is housed in the conscious part of the mind which is estimated to be roughly 10% of the mind power. Your beliefs and habits, however, are located in the subconscious mind which is the other whoppin’ 90%. That means that simply “knowing” that you aren’t an imposter doesn’t help you to feel any less of a fraud if there is a deep-seated belief that you aren’t enough/worthy/valuable. That disempowering belief will win every time. But all is not lost my friend. There are a handful of ways to access and shift the beliefs of the subconscious mind and one of my absolute favorite methods is via hypnosis. In this episode, I share a bit about what hypnosis is, how it works, and how it can be a powerful aid in shifting negative beliefs you may hold about being a fraud or an imposter.

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> You land your perfect job.  And then your inner voice tells you that you are horribly unqualified and everyone is going to find you out. You enter a super healthy relationship with an awesome partner.  And then your inner voice tells you how damaged you are, why you aren’t good enough, and why it’s all going to come crashing down in a blazing inferno. You finally finish that graduate degree.  And then your inner voice tells you how you were the slowest in the class, probably won’t get hired, and should probably just try to get your old job back. Sound familiar? If so, you are likely battling a lovely little issue we (in the personal growth world) like to call The Imposter Complex – A.K.A. Feeling like a fraud. The idea that, in spite of your success or accomplishment, you are somehow not good enough, a total charade, and have fooled everyone who will surely soon find you out. In this week’s episode, I discuss what to do when you continue to beat yourself up about being an imposter in your career, relationship, as a parent, or whatever. You’ll learn what to do with those pesky thoughts, how to acknowledge yourself (without being a cocky asshole), and how to own your god-damned brilliance (even if that terrifies you). This pod explores: The reason why over 70% of people struggle with Imposter Complex at some point in their life How to zero in on what you’re really afraid of so you can get a handle on your triggers and create a much more empowering inner convo Two of my favorite assignments to snap you outta this imposter trap (bring your pen and paper, Babycakes!

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> Tell me if this sounds familiar. You land a promotion you’ve been working toward for ages and instantly a barrage of commentary from your inner critic pipes in, “Just wait until they find out you have no idea what you are doing. You know it’s just a matter of time before they find you out.” Or maybe you are about to have your art featured in a high-profile exhibit, or you landed a lead role in a play you auditioned for, or your band is going to headline a major event and instead of thrill and excitement for this accomplishment, your inner shit-talker goes on a bender. “When they see who you really are, they’re going to regret giving you this opportunity. Who do you think you are!?” If you’ve landed in the murky territory of the Imposter Complex, you are certainly not alone. In fact, some of the greatest minds of our time have admitted to struggling with feeling as though they are about to be “found out”. So, the great news is that Tina Fey, Michelle Obama, Maya Angelou, and Meryl Streep are living proof that this debilitating thought process doesn’t have to thwart your success. But, how? How does one move through the gloomy feeling of “I’m a fraud!”? In this week’s show, I am thrilled to dial-up an expert on the subject. Tanya Geisler is a dear friend and colleague and one of the foremost experts on the subject of the imposter complex. She shares the specific behaviors we tend to employ (hint: perfectionism, people-pleasing, etc.) we use when in the throws of the imposter complex and what we can do to start shifting that narrative. This pod explores: Why it’s not really a syndrome and why we need to stop calling it that The origin of Imposter Complex and how that affects us today The connection between your self-worth and feeling like an imposter and what to do about it Figuring out what your imposter complex go-to behaviors are ____ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> What if you could listen in to a coaching session where someone is being coached on feeling like an imposter? You’d be all over it, right? Well, you’re in luck, my friend. In this inaugural coaching episode, I work with a lovely and highly accomplished woman, Rachel, on her struggle of feeling “not enough” and how that manifests into an imposter complex in her workplace.  When I asked how imposter complex was showing up in her life, here is what she shared with me: I’m constantly plagued by the idea that I need to achieve more or earn more credentials in order to step into my expertise. I work in violence prevention/intervention and I’m also a survivor of various forms of interpersonal violence. I’m so worried about showing up EITHER as a survivor OR an expert because of how long I’ve been doing this work instead of owning that some of the expertise I have is simply because I lived it. I constantly feel like “who are you” to think I can become a consultant on issues I know damn well I am capable of consulting on and feel like I’m not worthy of stepping into my power as an actual expert in my field. I’m always making the excuse that I need to do more schooling or work for longer when in my heart I would love to step up and own my skill set.  We dig into her constant pull to amass credential after credential in order to prove her worth, the constant feeling of “not enough”, and some steps to take to start altering this reality. If you find yourself addicted to approval or achievement at the cost to your own happiness, this episode is a must-listen. Creep our session, have a pen and paper handy and get ready to steal Rachel’s homework for yourself.  This pod explores: The first step in changing the belief that you are an “imposter” Understanding how our beliefs about “not being enough” are formed and take hold The connection between your self-worth and feeling like an imposter and what to do about it How to stop collapsing your “enoughness” with your accomplishments  ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> Regardless if your parents were amazing or downright awful, it is highly likely that there are certain things you experienced as a child that have greatly impacted your current reality. And, not necessarily in a positive way. Although we don’t realize it at the time, we take in every bit of information from our parents, form beliefs off of that information, and develop a complex system of coping mechanisms.  So, maybe your mom always picked her body apart in front of you, so you developed the belief that you had to have a “perfect” body in order to be worthy. Or lovable. Or a “real woman”. And this belief led to you clinging to perfectionism around your relationship with your body. Or maybe your dad was constantly absent leading you to conclude that men in your life will abandon you. And now, in adulthood, you find yourself picking romantic partners who aren’t emotionally or physically available or searching for approval from your male co-workers. Reckoning with the impact of your parents is no small feat and can stir up many uncomfortable thoughts and emotions. But, on the other side of that reckoning is unbelievable healing and freedom. Trust… we don’t dig up this shit for the fun of it. We do it to heal. To move to the other side. To access our worth and our happiness. In this episode, I share a three-part formula you can use to unpack the effects of your parents, begin to let go of the past, and access your “enoughness”. This pod explores: The real reason you cling to people-pleasing, perfectionism, and control Why we still want approval from our parents… even when they’re total asshats An easy, 3-step acronym to help you deal with the residue of your childhood How to figure out the beliefs you created due to what was modeled for you by your parents (and what to do to change them) ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> Tell me if this sounds familiar. You’re mom/bestie/sister/co-worker starts complaining about something you totally used to struggle with and your first thought is, “OMG! I know the solution! Let me just tell her what she should do…” Don’t get me wrong. You’re not trying to be a boss-pants and all condescending, you just genuinely know of something that may help. After all, it helped you, so surely they want to hear about it! So why would your sage advice *not* be welcomed with open arms? I’ll tell you why. (Of course, I will.) Often when you jump into the world of personal development, you start making some seriously awesome strides and your first instinct is to share that with your closest circle. Yet, sometimes they aren’t so ready to hear you. So, what are you supposed to do… just let them suffer!?  If you’ve found yourself wanting to share your newfound love of personal growth with someone not-so-ready to listen, this episode is a MUST LISTEN. I sound off on four, specific ways you can share personal development tactics and concepts with those you care so much about… without coming across pushy and dismissive to what they may be going through.  This pod explores: The three ways people usually respond to “the new and improved YOU” Exactly what NOT to do if you want someone to hear you out How you can incorporate games and play into sharing your journey with others How to offer solutions in a super disarming, loving way ______ NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

NEW WORKSHOP ~> Tell me if this sounds familiar: You interview for a job that has a ton of other candidates and you constantly ruminate on all the other applicants and wonder how you compare. Or, maybe you grew up in a family with so much competition that you felt you couldn’t ever measure up if you didn’t have fourteen degrees like your older sister. Or be the star athlete like your brother. Or maybe you find yourself in constant competition with your besties to see who can be the thinnest/richest/best parent, etc. It is no secret that our society thrives on competition and comparison. The beauty and fitness industries feed on it. After all, our ancestors stayed alive by competing with one another. So, no wonder we feel like the only way to survive is to beat everyone else. Be the best at everything. Our weight. Our relationships. Our finances. Our work. All of it. Be the fucking best. Because, what happens if you aren’t the best? You are simply not enough. The concept of competition implies there is only one winner and therefore, everyone else just simply isn’t as valuable. And, this concept wreaks havoc on our self-esteem. So what do we do about it? So glad you asked. In this week’s show, I sound off on the difference between healthy and toxic competition, how to spot the difference, and how to own your self-worth like a badass no matter what anyone else is doing. This pod explores: How to decipher if being competitive is motivating and inspiring to you or if it leaves you feeling empty, broken, and not enough Key questions to ask yourself to evaluate if “I’m just super competitive” is an empowering way to identify The reason why reckoning with our competitive nature is a fierce act of liberation (and how it relates to social justice) How to focus on YOU instead of measuring yourself against everyone else NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

NEW WORKSHOP ~> You walk into work, totally optimistic about your day, and you give your co-worker a casual ‘How-ya-doin’-today?’ She responds with her usual quip about how she’s ‘alright-I-guess’ but immediately launches into complaining about her neighbor/workload/recent ailment. Or maybe it’s every time you give your sister a ring on the phone. You ask how she’s doing. She starts off with all the problems… all the things that are shitty… or all the reason’s she’s a total victim. And you’re over here like, “Why is everyone so damn negative!?” It can sometimes feel like it will take a sheer act of god to stay positive around negative people. It tends to be a much more difficult endeavor to get others to join your positivity movement than to simply indulge and comply with their complaints, ho-humery, or victim mentality. So, what’s a personal development junkie to do when around such negativity? Just cut those people out entirely? But, what if they’re co-workers? I can’t just quit my job! And, what if they are The Fam? Not to worry, my love. In this episode, I discuss 7 tactics you can use to keep your sanity around Debbie/Danny Downer without feeling like an elitist asshole. This pod explores: The first (and often overlooked) step you have to take to begin weeding out the non-joy-junkies My favorite way to “prep” for being around negative people so you can stay chill, calm, and happy How to “call-out” Negative Nancy/Norman without creating a huge, awkward-ass moment Conversation hacks and questions to use when you know you’re going to be around negative peeps NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM? OF COURSE, YOU ARE! Is this the year you go from a people-pleasing, guilt-tripped perfectionist to a bold and boundaried badass? Um, yeah. I think it is! If you’re DONE feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and stressed out because you’re constantly doing, doing, doing for everyone else, then you must grab your seat in this brand-new workshop! You’ll learn the exact five-step process I take my clients through so they can let go of all the stress and angst of striving for “perfect” and caring waaaaay too much what everyone else thinks.

NEW WORKSHOP ~> If you’re like many of my clients and students, you have likely found yourself super inspired to start speaking up for yourself… even to those tough peeps (hi, mom) who make it extremely challenging. You muster all your new-found courage and go broach the challenging topic at hand with the challenging person at hand, and BOOM! “Said person” doesn’t get what you’re trying to share, totally doesn’t respect any boundaries you propose, and hurls so much guilt and hurt your way, you’re not totally sure you’ll survive. You’re left vacillating between two very opposing emotions. On one hand, you are super, fuckin’ proud of yourself for taking a stand and spelling out some tough boundaries. But on the other hand, you’re terribly hurt, bummed out, and deeply saddened that your loved one and you are at odds. Listen, when you start speaking up for what YOU want for a change, there are going to be people in your life who just do not like the new, “empowered you”. They may be mean, make you wrong, or push guilt on you like no one’s biz. But, all is not lost. In fact, this episode is all about navigating the “hangover” of standing up for yourself, deciding what the healthiest choices are for you, and owning your personal power like a total badass. This pod explores: How to resist the urge to “make someone like you” after the two of you have had a tough convo (even if they’re super pissed at you, but you totally don’t think you did anything wrong) What to watch out for if you’re a “recovering” people-pleaser How to use the other person’s reaction to know if you’re on the right track or not How self-talk filters into the equation and the exact phrase I use to stay connected to my peace NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

NEW WORKSHOP ~> Ever find yourself obsessing about what others may be thinking? Or re-run conversations in your head, second-guessing everything you said? Have a difficult time saying ‘No’ because… um, what if they don’t like me!? Ever feel like if someone is disappointed in you, you are damn-near destroyed and ruined? Or do you ever experience extreme guilt when you take time for yourself or set up a boundary? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those Qs, it’s likely that you are struggling with some serious approval addiction… essentially, the need to be liked… At. All. Costs. And those “costs” are usually your time, energy, self-worth, and desires. And, let me tell you, you are most certainly not alone. In this week’s show I look at the common ways approval addiction shows up in your life and a specific 5-step process you can take to start ushering in some #legit SELF-approval… Instead of always worrying about what everyone else is thinking about you. #exhausting This pod explores: How to acknowledge that a situation in your life sucks, but YOU don’t suck… and really believe it. How to allow yourself to feel awesome when you receive approval without allowing it to dictate your self-worth How to know what is and what is not your responsibility when wanting to make everyone happy NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Just think positive. Put on a happy face. Look on the brightside. Think happy thoughts. Don’t cry over spilled milk. Good vibes only. Sound familiar? There is no shortage of platitudes and idioms that send the message that the only acceptable emotion to feel is happiness. The underlying implication is that emotions of sadness, worry, shame, embarrassment, etc. are simply not permissible. And, for god sake, don’t let me actually see you experience one of those emotions. So, “sweep it under the rug” and “have an attitude of gratitude”. And, then if you are in a personal shitstorm, you feel guilty for actually feeling awful. Like, other people have it sooooo much worse, so who am I to feel bummed about losing this job promotion? Better put on a face of “nothing to see here”. And perhaps you’ve even found yourself saying one of these platitudes to someone else. Instead of the awkward intimacy of witnessing someone in an uncomfortable state, we say, “Don’t cry” or something else that completely bypasses and dismisses their emotions. The name for this phenomenon? Toxic positivity. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think we consciously employ this language with the intention of dismissing how we feel or how others feel. But, it can be incredibly detrimental nonetheless. In this week’s show, I address how toxic positivity shows up in our lives and how to process aaaaaall the emotions in a powerful way. Get ready for a massive dose of emotional intelligence. This pod explores: My formula for knowing when to use positive affirmations and when that is the LAST thing you should do Understanding what Toxic Positivity actually is and how it is showing up in your life right now Powerful and alternative phrases to say to both yourself and others to allow room for all emotions The (somewhat) ugly truth about personal growth that no one has told you before NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

FREE WORKSHOP ~> Hands up if you’re a chronic rule follower! (Same, girl. Same) How ‘bout rule breaker? (Ooooo, you rebel, you!) It’s likely that wherever you fall on the rule-breaking spectrum, constantly breaking or never breaking rules doesn’t always serve you. For example, Mr. Smith used to looooove to break the rules of the road. Drive in the carpool lane. Park in the red zone. You name it. But, he paid for it dearly. Financially and maritally. He has a natural inclination to break the rules. I, however, am on the opposite ends of the spectrum. I am overly punctilious and have found that NOT breaking the rules has cost me dearly in the past. So, how do we know when we need to break the rules and when we need to fall in line? Is there a set guideline? And, what if the rules are imposed on us by religion, society, or government? And, how does that differ from our self-imposed rules? Like, I-can’t-have-anyone-over-to-my-house-unless-it’s-spotless kind of rules? In this episode, I explore what it looks like to break the rules consciously versus unconsciously, how to acknowledge the healthiest choice for yourself in each situation, and how to examine if you concur with the origin of the rule. Get ready to push some limits. Or not. This pod explores: My favorite tool to help you make a powerful decision, even if others don’t agree The major way you may be making excuses, breaking rules, and harming yourself in the process How to know when rule-following or rule-breaking is causing you more grief than happiness Examining the long-term effects of following rules or breaking rules NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

NEW FREE WORKSHOP ~> If you’re like most, this past year has wreaked an abundance of havoc on your mental, physical, and emotional faculties. If it wasn’t the collective trauma of constant fear of a looming and evasive virus, painful isolation, or loss of personal freedom, it was the loss of a job, finances, a loved one, or possibly the end of an important relationship. In short, 2020 can eat a bag of dicks, amiright!?  So, where does that leave us now? The genesis of a new year often gives us hope and thrill of possibility and opportunity. But, what does that really look like? What does it mean to consciously create a fresh start and actively move on? Does that mean we sweep everything under the table and put on a happy face? Hardly.  In this week’s show I look at seven actionable steps you can take in order to shed the trauma of the past year, identify what you need to succeed, and begin to take action toward the life you desire. No matter what scars the past year has saddled you with, this episode will give you practical tips on purposely switching gears, healing those wounds, and kicking serious ass.  This pod explores: How to identify what is in the way of you moving on The easiest and most practical things you can do in your home to shift energy and create a new start How to know what things you should quit and when you should persevere  The #1 way to ensure you create a fresh start with success FREE WORKSHEETS WITH THIS EPISODE!

At the start of every year, it’s likely you get pumped up and excited to make some serious change. You decide on a handful of things that you are GOING to conquer this year, god-damn-it! But what actually makes those goals a reality? Throughout my decade-plus in this work, I have found that noble intentions have very little to do with bringing goals to fruition. Good ol’ fashioned gumption and desire are not enough to make your dreams come true. [sad trombone] In fact, a recent Inc.com article indicated that only 8% of people actually accomplish their goals. WHOA!! 8%!? Well, fuck. But, wait. Never fear, Babycakes, because this episode targets seven ways people tend to sabotage their own goals (without even realizing it) and how you can set yourself up to slaaaaay all your goals. It’s not rocket science, but if you employ some of these easy tactics, you will kill all your 2021 goals! Yes, please! This pod explores: My favorite tool to use to ensure you are tackling this goal for YOU (instead of mom/fam/boss/society) The number one way people lose steam while working towards a goal and how you can smoothly move beyond this obstacle like a BOSS Why you need accountability and people in your life to support you and what to do if you don’t How to keep your self-talk on point so you are constantly encouraged, kicking ass, and taking names NEW *FREE* WORKSHOP READY TO GET RID OF PERFECTIONISM, SELF-DOUBT, AND OVERWHELM?

Also like most people, perhaps you hit Jan gang-busters-style, but when Feb rolls around you have slowly begun to lose steam, fervor, and action.
