Ali McGregor: Mastering Your Emotional Health & Muting What No Longer Serves You

You know those moments of regret that still haunt you from your PRE-growth journey? All those drunk hookups, toxic friendships, and cries for love & attention... yeah, those moments. Those are all thanks to EMOTIONAL ILLITERACY, aka the lack of control over our emotions and our inability to healthfully cope. On the other side of the regrets, missteps, and "WTF" moments is EMOTIONAL HEALTH. And today's guest Ali McGregor is joining us to share how she found her way back to peace, self-love,...


Emma Musto: Quarter Life Crisis or Eat Pray Love Moment?

In the first episode of this new chapter of The SheFactor Podcast, 26-year-old Emma Musto shares her real-life 20's version of Eat Pray Love (minus the divorce and Julia Roberts). In fact, it just might be better than the classic book & movie we all love… Needless to say, Emma was never destined for a “traditional” life, starting from the time she and her single mom lived 50/50 between Romania and Miami.

The Secret To Self-Acceptance & Reawakening Your Inner Child

Our twenties are so much about unlearning everything we’ve been spoon-fed up to this point so we can return to the core of who we really are. As we grow up and start to do the inner work, we can unlearn all of the stories and beliefs conditioned to protect us over the years and tap into those traits and gifts still within us -- our natural-born state of love, enthusiasm, curiosity, creativity, compassion -- to enhance our quality of life, well-being, and happiness as an adult! By healing,...


The Ugly Side of Self-Growth & Knowing When You Need To Shift

The truth about self-growth is that it's not always pretty. In fact, it can be raw, emotional, hard, and exhausting. And sometimes you get so caught up in who you're becoming that you forget who you are. This week, Tori talks about the difference between being vulnerable with others and really being vulnerable with yourself. In this journey of self-discovery and evolution, we all have dark moments. We are all moving through something behind the Instagram highlight reel, the habitual "I'm...


Carrie Creed: You Grow Through What You Go Through

In our twenties, it's easy for us to get caught up in what's holding us back from the life we're dreaming of. Dwelling on the latest office drama, being too hard on ourselves for not crossing everything off our to-do list, or even just feeling unmotivated by the season of life we're in. But for today's guest, the little inconveniences of her twenties were the least of her worries as she contemplated whether or not she'd be able to ever live a normal life again. In today's episode, Carrie...


Jenna Reiss: Following Your Heart & Breathing Into Being You

"Follow your heart." We've heard it over and over again since we were kids, but what does it really mean? In traditional terms, the word courage comes from Latin and it means "acting with your heart." So, following your heart could mean having the courage to do what you think is right. But how the heck do you know what's right when your heart is telling you one thing, your head is telling you another, and everyone around you is telling you even MORE?! Just breathe. Easier said than done in...

Cheyenne Baker: Naps (& Snacks) Are Necessary

Ever wonder how a people-pleasing perfectionist defines success?! It's probably not what you’d think... Today's guest on our mini-series Success in 6 Minutes has a pretty simple formula for success: Naps (and snacks, duh...), Gratitude (all the blessings, rainbows & unicorns), and making sure your close circle is elevated. But it hasn't always looked like that. Cheyenne Baker is a 24-year-old with a penchant for expressing her thoughts through writing and amusing rants on her IG stories....

Travel The World For Free (But Stop Anti-Asian Hate Crimes FIRST) with Travel-Hacker Julia Menez

We had been planning on sitting down to record a podcast with one of our SheFactor members Julia of @geobreezetravel since last May but put it off until it was time to talk all about FINANCE (she IS the queen of travel hacking and credit card points, duh).
