At the core of her entrepreneurial life is Head Trash Clearance, a unique healing approach that serves as the foundation for her creative endeavors. Alexia's daily routine involves coaching, writing, teaching, training, mentoring, and engaging in public speaking—a practical expression of her creativity. Her journey began with a personal mission to overcome tokophobia, transforming her fear of pregnancy and childbirth into a compelling story of triumph over one's darkest demons. As a business coach, Alexia's pregnancy became a turning point when after 3month of healing, she ditched her planned c-section for a home birth, a decision that sparked curiosity globally as other women wanted to know how she did it. In response to inquiries, Alexia launched her "Fear Free Childbirth" podcast, which today has been listened to in 180 countries with over 1.5 million downloads. Her creative approach to helping women to heal their birth fears, lead to her creating self-healing products. Her popular fear-clearance MP3 tracks enable women to heal a fear by simply listening to her audios. This lead to her becoming known as a world expert in tokophobia. Alexia expanded her creative approach to address things like anxiety, depression, and OCD through her easy-to-use Head Trash Clearance method.

Alexia’s mission is to establish a global mental health and resilience brand that makes healing accessible, affordable and straightforward to all. Especially in a world facing a mental health crisis.

EP: 412 Avoiding burn out and defining values with Antoinette Placides

4/3/2024
Hi, I’m Antoinette! I’m a mom of 3 humans and 1 American Staffy who just turned 1 this 2024! I’m also a multi-passionate who loves working with creatives. I was born and raised in the Philippines and 2018, together with my husband and 3 kids, we immigrated to Paris, France and that’s when all the magic happened. I have over a decade of experience working as a project manager and business manager working with companies based in the US and all over the globe. In 2019, I discovered my love for coaching and consulting, and like every coach you’ve met, I was interested in Podcasting to serve my audience who are not ready to work with me on 1:1 level. My support supportive husband took an editing course from The Podcast Management Program to edit my show and I ended up loving the backend work as well and offered it as a service and I never looked back. Currently, we are based in a quaint town right beside Versailles where we adopted our lovely dog, Saturn. 🐶 As a multi-passionate, I enjoy working creatives and multi-passionate business owners and professionals as well.

EP 405: Paris History Avec a Hemingway (Notre Dame Statues)

3/11/2024
On April 16, 2019 we woke up and realized the fire of Notre Dame wasn’t just a bad dream, it had happened. Although, in the days following little pieces of good news began to appear. With a stroke of luck, the statues lining the ribs to the spire were removed just days before. The 12 statues of the Apostles and four figures of the Evangelists flew across the skyline of Paris on April 11, 2019. Each one weighed 500 pounds and to remove them their heads were detached and they were hoisted off the roof. The hollow statues constituted a metal structure that was covered with copper that had tarnished through the ages. In just two years the statues were restored and placed in the Cité de l’Architecure & Patrimoine where you can still see them for a few more months. They stand alongside a fantastic exhibition dedicated to the restoration of our beloved Notre Dame. As the project progresses so does the exhibit, don’t miss it and then go again and again. Listen to our 2nd episode in our monthly series dedicated to Notre Dame until there reopening on December 8, 2024. Be sure to visit the Cité de l’Architecure & Patrimoine when you are next in Paris. Located at the Trocadero, just across from the Eiffel Tower it is open Wednesday - Monday 11 am - 7 pm, and Thursday 11 am - 9 pm. However, don’t wait to explore, watch my video that shows you all these treasures of Notre Dame and more.

EP 403: Paris History Avec a Hemingway (The Raft of the Medusa)

3/4/2024
Many know the large painting hanging in the Salle Mollien of the Louvre by Théodore Géricault but did you know it was based on a true story? Le Radeau de la Méduse (The Raft of the Medusa) was painted in 1818 when Géricault was just 27. It depicts the story of the French ship Medusa, a 40-gun Pallas frigate that was used during the Napoleonic Wars in 1810. On June 17, 1816, the Medusa left the port of Aix alongside three other ships in the fleet. Through a series of bad choices by the captain who didn’t know what he was doing the Medusa crashed into a sandbar and then things got much worse. With two casks of water and wine (gotta love the French) and floating under the hot sun the worst was yet to happen. As their raft mates died, they were eaten by the others to survive. Thirteen days later on July 17, only fifteen members remained when they were spotted by the Argus and rescued, 5 more died before they reached the shore. Géricault’s early sketches of the painting, two of which are in the Louvre, show a few slight differences from the final version. The first sketch shows the raft’s position off from the one we know so well. If you look closely at each of the figures you can see how they changed and why I love to find earlier sketches of these monumental works. It’s like getting a glimpse into the artist's mind before the final monumental piece that hangs in the Louvre today.

EP 400: Parisian Soap Maker Carol Pincione

2/21/2024
My name is Carol and I am the founder of Bolle di Natura. I was born & grew up in Italy & now living in Paris after spending 13 years of my life in NYC working in the Corporate world. I have a master in Economics and Business and I worked for many years in Finance and Accounting in Real Estate Development & Construction Management. In the past I made soap sporadically with the intention of reducing plastic waste in our home but never had time to make it consistently due to my hectic work life. Then COVID-19 happened and I found myself stuck at home as everyone else. Washing hands with soaps became a necessity as well as making soaps to make sure our hands were clean but also not too dry from the frequent usage, especially for my little one who started having rashes from the stores bought soaps and detergents. The lockdown definitely helped me further develop this passion. I spent a lot of time home studying about cosmetic formulations, I completed 2 training courses in Zero Waste Soap Making and Zero Waste Hair Care to learn how to formulate my own recipes, attended a course in herbalism while learning how to source good quality & sustainable ingredients. This passion grew each day and made me so happy to see all the many products I was able to make each time... Learning new things and finding time for myself really helped me alleviate all the stress and the tension that built up from what was happening outside of home. Bolle di Natura was founded in New York and when me and my family decided to move back to Europe, I then decided to take this side hobby to the next level as an opportunity to inspire people about making sustainable choices in self care, support small business ethics and mostly reduce plastic pollution. links to your work www.bolledinatura.com INSTA: @bolledinatura Support the show

EP 399: Paris History Avec a Hemingway (Notre Dame Bells)

2/19/2024
Since the fire of Notre Dame, the great bells have remained silent except for a few monumental occasions. On April 15, 2019, as the fire spread from the roof and toward the facade there was a tiny window of time that almost led to the destruction of the cathedral. The bells hang in the wooden maze of the belfry of the towers. If the fire reached them, the timbers would quickly burn and the heavy bells would drop and take the entire facade with them. Luckily the pompiers were able to control the fire in time. First installed back to the 12th century when the godfather of the cathedral Bishop de Sully had the bells created and rang during the construction. By the 14th century, eight bells hung and rang out over Paris. On April 29, 1682, Francois de Champvallon baptized ten new bells including the Bourdon Emmanuel in the presence of Louis XIV and Marie Theresa who were also named as godparents. During the Revolution, all bells except Emanuelle were melted down and used for cannons and coins. In 2013 Notre Dame celebrated its 850th anniversary and for the occasion, new bells were created for the beloved cathedral. With precise instructions that the bells must be built using the original 12th-century techniques, special factories had to be located. On January 31, 2013, eleven years ago the bells drove into Paris and down the Champs Élysées. Presented at Notre Dame in front of dignitaries they were baptized on February 2, and for the rest of the month lined the center of the cathedral so everyone could get close enough to see the inscription and verse on each one. The bells rang out for the first time on March 23, 2013, to mark the start of the Holy Week. Following the fire, the bells remained silent, fearing the vibration could cause more damage. When it was safe enough the sound of Emmanuel could be heard over a kilometer away to note the passing and funeral of former president Jacques Chirac on September 29, 2019. Most recently they rang out on Easter Sunday 2023 and I can’t wait to hear them ring o December 8, 2024 when the cathedral once again opens to the public.

2/12/2024
Paris in Love go hand in hand. From the art on the walls, marble statues in the parks, or just lovers walking down the street everywhere you look there is love. Over the last centuries that love has been captured on film and in marble, from the iconic images of Robert Doiseau and Willy Ronis to the sensual relationship between Camille Claudel & Rodin. These are just a few of the loveliest images of love. In this week's episode, we share the stories behind two images captured on film that perfectly depict lovers in Paris yesterday or today. One could never forget the real-life love captured in marble and bronze of Claudel and Rodin even as heartbreaking as it was.
