12/13/2018
More

Unpolished Rewind 28: Mom Guilt

12/5/2018
More
It can be really hard to be all the things. The idea of having it all is great—but we can’t have it all in every moment and we need to acknowledge the realities of the tradeoffs we make in our choices. Mom life is just really hard, and it’s time we talked about it. We all feel different degrees of insecurities about being mothers, and these feelings of judgment are our projections of our own insecurities as we seek validation for the decisions we make. There are parallels between this and...

Unpolished 42: We Get to Choose

11/6/2018
More
There is duality present within every situation—joy and pain, dark and light—and we often forget that we have the power to choose what we see. Our thoughts create our feelings, not the other way around. When we can learn to focus and choose how we are thinking about things and how we are seeing the world, our feelings then change. We also talk about the concept of seasons in our lives, how comparison is our default setting, and the need to give ourselves permission to feel the feelings....

Unpolished 37: A Tornado In Your Face

9/24/2018
More
Things aren’t always supposed to feel good, and things aren’t always supposed to be easy. But, we’re never taught to accept this so when difficult circumstances happen to us it feels “wrong” or “bad”. We also often refer to life as “busy” or “crazy”, but isn’t that exactly what life is all about? Instead, we can choose to feel peace, or choose to feel balanced, and look for all aspects of life instead of focusing on the uncomfortable parts. It’s important to acknowledge that our lives are...

Unpolished 36: Wait For It

9/18/2018
More
It’s important to take a moment to celebrate the wins when they happen, regardless of their size. The entrepreneur journey never really looks like what we imagine, and it’s important to remember that it truly is a process. All we can do is take action on whatever is calling us and simply see what happens. When you plant a lot of seeds and take steps to water them, whatever that may look like, you’ll eventually see which seeds are meant to bloom and learn from the ones that aren’t blooming....

Unpolished 32: Know Your People Not Your Critics

8/20/2018
More
We often spend so much energy trying to convince people of our value or make ourselves into someone who we are not. It’s a disservice to people who could benefit from what we have to offer if we don’t own our talents and gifts and simply share who we truly are. Our people will be drawn to this—we don’t need to spend time explaining ourselves to our critics, yet this is what we often do. Getting clear about who we are and what we’re passionate about is where we need to start. Working with the...

Unpolished 30: Confronting Our Privilege

7/30/2018

This is the start of a much bigger conversation. This episode is our first step in recognizing the privilege we both are afforded, how that shows up in our lives, and what we can do to start to process it. The most powerful place for us to start is self-awareness. We can't take action until we recognize in ourselves our own biases and privileges and see how we are contributing (even unconsciously) to the problem. The world changes when we change. We must do the uncomfortable work, to be...
