024: Understanding Your Values so You Can Find Fulfillment

This week’s topic is one that is very near and dear to my heart and was one of the first things I was trained on when I went through my coaching certification at the Coaches Training Institute. One of the main purposes of co-active coaching is to help people experience more fulfillment in their lives, businesses, relationships, or whatever realm the coach is supporting them in. And, fulfillment isn’t possible without having a deeper understanding of our values. So, in this week’s episode,...

022: Strengthening the Roots of the Tree of Non-Anxious Life

There was a point in time where I honestly didn’t believe it was possible to be truly free from my anxiety. However, I knew I could get to a place where I felt compassion for myself and could acknowledge that my anxiety was a part of me and not all of me. Over the past ten years, I’ve developed skills which have allowed me to be freer from anxiety than I ever thought possible. In this audio workshop, I’m sharing the three roots of the tree of non-anxious life that became the foundation for...

020: Using Boundaries to Create a Life of Joy and Freedom

I’ve come to realize that I attribute the regular practice of setting strong boundaries to the level of joy, peace, and freedom I feel in my life right now. Setting boundaries in my life have given me a sense of empowerment that I get to lean into on a regular basis. It’s because of the power setting boundaries has given me that I want to share this topic with you this week. So, in today’s audio workshop I’m talking about the connection between co-dependent relationships and boundaries, how...

018: Co-Creating Your Life with the Universe

So often we decide who we are, and we continue to make choices based on that decision without reevaluating whether or not we’re still that same person … even years down the line. It’s with this in mind that I recently opened myself up to a new experience and learned something new about myself in the process. In this episode, speak about that new experience and what I learned from it, but I also speak about the Law of Attraction through the lens of stories from my own life so you can hear...

016: What is Mindfulness?

I usually start off my audio workshops by asking what your mind climate is like and then offering an insight into mine. However, I usually answer this question from an intellectual place and, as I sat down to record this episode, I decided to take the time to really reflect on my surroundings in that specific moment. Doing allowed me to replace the need to feel like I have to constantly move from one task to the next or what it means for my business and goals that it’s already almost March...

014: Living Life Unapologetically

People, particularly women, tend to apologize for things we have absolutely no reason to be sorry for. While saying you’re sorry in little moments like needing to get past someone who’s in your way in the grocery store doesn’t seem like a big deal, it actually is. It creates a mind climate that is filled with unnecessary guilt and shame and that’s the opposite of how I want you to feel. I want you to make bold decisions for yourself, by yourself, without having to ask permission, and...

011: Self-Worth Strength Training

Last week, I had the startling realization that I had been letting my inner critic tell me I couldn’t do certain things for several days. A few years ago, this wouldn’t have been anything new. However, I’ve spent the past few years building my self-worth muscle and it’s because of that work that I was able to eventually recognize the inner critic and set aside. The goal of the work I’ll be discussing in this week's audio workshop is not to get rid of the inner critic. The goal is to learn...

009: You Always Have a Choice

It’s officially 2019 and I want to start the year off by talking about one of my favorite topics. The topic for our audio workshop this week is one of my favorites because it’s inspiring and powering, but it can also be a little controversial. Knowing that I always have a choice has helped me feel empowered in certain situations rather than feeling like a victim and the same can be true for you. Whether it’s how you experience a negative situation, setting boundaries to protect your time...


008: Being Wisely Selfish with Sarah Marshank

It’s the day after Christmas and that means many of us have likely spent the past few weeks thinking about others, volunteering, and getting gifts to make the ones we love feel appreciated and joyful.

Sarah Marshank is founder of Selfistry; a company dedicated to educating, inspiring, and investigating...


007: Having Faith Can Bring You Peace of Mind

With this time of year, and the many religious and spiritual holidays it encompasses, faith is a topic that gets discussed quite a bit. As a result, I thought this would be the perfect time to talk about how having faith can bring you peace of mind. While faith can mean many different things, it’s not always a religious faith in a higher power. So, in this episode, I talk about what I mean when I use the word faith and explain the multiple ways it can help you achieve a better mind...


006: Using Pleasure and Sensuality to Improve Your Mind Climate with Lucia Pavone

Lucia Pavone is an international instructor of sexuality and the art of sensual pleasure. Her journey of sexual emancipation began over fifteen years ago when she took her first sensuality course.

005: Getting Comfortable with Discomfort

According to Tim Ferriss, your success is directly related to the number of uncomfortable conversations you have. Along those lines, a pretty popular quote is, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” While that quote has been attributed to many people, I’ve put my own spin on it … Growth is on the other side of fear. In this audio workshop, I want to expand this concept to our mind climate. I discuss the cycle that can happen when we experience discomfort and why it’s so...
