S3:E13 // Why No One Knows WTF They're Doing in Relationships with Group Think & Keith Paolino

In this week's episode, I share an interview I did with my relationship coach, Keith Paolino, for a program called Group Think. This is one of the BEST recorded conversations I've had about relationships, and the turnout to the panel was AWESOME. People responded really well, so I highly recommend listening to this. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I'm sharing their show notes below so you have everything you need to navigate this super robust and important show: Welcome to the third...


S3:E12// Finding Courage to Walk Away from the Beaten Path with Mitchell Earl

In this episode, I interview COO of Discover Praxis, Mitchell Earl, about his journey away from the traditional "go to college, get a degree, get a job" path and became an entrepreneur so he could build the life he wanted. Mitchell is COO of Discover Praxis – a startup bootcamp and job placement program for entrepreneurial young professionals who want more than college. He's the author of Don’t Do Stuff You Hate and frequently writes about how to navigate life and careers. He's radical...


S3:E11 // Using Music & Mushrooms to Build Your Self-Awareness

In this week's episode, I interview the amazing Taraleigh Weathers about how she teaches people to integrate the magic of live music into their daily lives. This is easily one of the most fun interviews I've done because of her energy and because we talk about one of my favorite topics: psychedelics! If you'd like to connect with Taraleigh, here's her info: to Rock Your Life: Maintain the Magic of Live Music in Your Everyday...


S3:E10 // Let's Talk About Sex(uality), Baby!

In this week's episode, I talk to my cousin, Anna, about her coming out journey, why I really got divorced, and why your sexuality is a crucial part of your self-awareness journey. Mentioned on the show: @porcupannaSavage LovecastThe Ethical SlutKay TaylorNote: PLEASE stay safe and sane right now. As best you can, abide by COVID-19 quarantine rules. The sooner we get with the program, the sooner things will go back to something closer to "normal."


S3:E9 // The Power of Slowing Down & Pausing

Right now, we have an unprecedented global slow down. For the first time in recent history, the ENTIRE world is not only asking you to stay home, it's actually enforcing it. For many of us, this is causing internal panic about SO. MANY. THINGS! I'm here to encourage and quite frankly challenge you to step outside your patterns of anxiety, scarcity, and panic in this uncertainty and lean into the power of pausing. As entrepreneur and speaker KC Baker says, "The slower you go, the more you...


S3:E8 // Are Your Friends Helping or Hindering Your Growth?

In this episode, I chat with my friends/family about the importance of the people you surround yourself with, and how they can either help or hinder your personal growth. With COVID-19 quarantines and other craziness, the importance of community and connection beyond convenience is more important than ever. The ways in which our culture lacks a community-minded perspective have become extremely obvious. Think about it: if people had been following precautions and taking care of their...


S3:E7// Get Your Joy On with the Gratitude Game

In this episode, I share a practice from my book, Get Your Joy On, that can get you out of negative thought patterns and crappy moods quickly: the Gratitude Game! There is no better medicine than gratitude. Giving thanks is infinitely transformative. If someone would give me a pulpit and bullhorn to scream, “EXPRESS MORE GRATITUDE; IT IS YOUR SALVATION,” on a street corner, I would do it. To be clear, gratitude is different from saying, “Thank you” as a compulsion to conditioned...


S3:E6 // Smashed Avocado & the Quarter Life Crisis with Jacqueline Cripps

In this episode, I interview author, Jacqueline Cripps, about her book Smashed Avocado and the Quarter Life Crisis: A Millennial Survival Guide as well as her work professionally as an organizational consultant who seeks to help organizations learn how to work with the millennial generation instead of against it. Jacqueline is an author, speaker, and mentor. Working nationally and internationally, she works with business owners and organizations to strengthen their existing teams by...


S3:E5 // Are You Living in the "One Day" Myth?

How many times have you told yourself, "One day, my life will _______"? And how often is that blank filled with the things you most deeply desire for your life? The things that you know you want but for some reason secretly believe you'll never have? The "One Day" Myth is this idea we've all tacitly bought into that our lives can and will only feel the way we want them to in some far-off distant future when we've finally: ...or whatever else we think is between us and the life we want to...


S3:E4 // [PART 2] How Addiction + Divorce Lead to Living Your Best Life with Zack Blakeney

In Part 2 of my interview with Zack Blakeney, we dive a bit deeper into spiraling thought patterns and what we do to pull ourselves out. This is the more focused "how-to" piece of the discussion, so if that's what you're looking for, you found it! On another important note, Zack has enlisted me to help him found a lifestyle brand we hope will be the center of a social movement toward better lives for all: Supergivers Initiative. Founded on the same intent as this podcast, the Supergivers...


S3:E3 // How Addiction + Divorce Lead to Living Your Best Life with Zack Blakeney

This week's episode features one of my favorite humans, transformational coach and all-around badass, Zack Blakeney. In part 1 of this two-part interview, Zack teaches us about recoding, changing behavior patterns, and shares his own journey with a raw vulnerability that's just plain old sexy. Seriously, hearing about his battle with anxiety, porn and drug addiction and how that lead to his divorce gives me so much hope for what's possible. Why? Because now this man is living a much more...


S3:E2 // Resolutions Suck

Every new year is an opportunity to reset your mindset, perspective, energy, goals, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. But, let's be real: Resolutions are fucking lame as shit and almost never work. Does that mean we should all say "Fuck it" and forget about the spirit of a new calendar year? I don't think so. Instead, let's reframe resolutions into something I feel is far more powerful and sustainable: intentions. Why intentions? Guess you'll have to listen to find out! Here's...


S3:E1// What is Human Design? with Aycee Brown

I talk to Human Design expert, Aycee Brown, about what Human Design is and how you can use it to follow your life's purpose and know yourself better. What is Human Design? It's a powerful tool that combines the I Ching, astrology, Kabbalah, Hindu-Brahmin chakra system, and quantum physics. By learning about your Human Design aura type, you can unlock your full potential and take the guesswork out of who you are, why you're here, and how to make it happen! Aycee helps Thought Leaders and...

S2:E24 // FINALE: What's Your Why?

It's the end of our second season, and can I just say, THANK YOU! The show exists because of you, so thank you from the bottom of my soul for listening. To wrap the season, I call us back to the Map of Consciousness from episode 1, invite you to investigate your "Why?" in life, and fill you in on what's coming in season 3. During the break between seasons, I'll be recording the audiobook for Get Your Joy On™, preparing to launch the online course, and taking requests for season 3 episode....


S2:E23 // Sovereignty and Power with Nisha Moodley

Finally, my infamous mentor, Nisha Moodley joins me for an intriguing discussion about personal sovereignty and power! Sovereignty is a leadership quality I learned about through Nisha's program, Soul of Leadership, and HOLY GUACAMOLE is it powerful! It's empowered me to have healthier boundaries at work and at home, show up in a more powerful way for my clients and loved ones, and has helped me recognize my own personal power. As Nisha discusses the ways power has been distorted by...


S2:E22 // Coming Out with Ricky Murray

In this episode, I chat with my friend and co-worker, Ricky Murray, about how self-awareness played a role in his coming out story, and how coming out played a role in his self-awareness journey. As I've mentioned before, it's important we recognize all stories are valuable and important, regardless of credentials or things society deems as "qualified." Storytelling has the power to connect and change us all if we let it. I hope through hearing Ricky's story and journey, you're encouraged...


S2:E21 // "Seriousness" Break ft. The Reel Nerds Podcast

I'll be officially debuting my book, Get Your Joy™, at Denver Comic Con 2019 (DCC19)! One of the joy builders in the book is called "Take a Break. Or Two. Or Three." The main idea behind this is twofold: Ultimately, what I'm saying is that taking life too seriously leads to misery. As much as everything matters, it also doesn't if your quality of life totally sucks! You won't be effective or joyful, and if you're neither, what's the point of working at all? Let's take a seriousness break...


S2:E20 // Get Your Joy On (the book!)

Hi, friend! This episode is special to me because it marks the release of my book, Get Your Joy On™: Unleash Joy In Your Life, One Small Action at a Time. Not only is this book my offering of love, wisdom, and courage to you, it's a huge marker in my life's journey for how far I've come. The very first book I ever wrote came out of me from a place of deep shame and guilt (it's a fiction book called In the Mind of Revenge if you're curious). I was deeply depressed and stewing in a broth of...


S2:E19 // The Good Girl Problem with Kimberly Pendleton, PhD

What is the "good girl" problem? It's a complicated construct that has all of us, especially women, stuck in a loop of "shoulds," "supposed tos," and arbitrary rules designed to keep us in line and quiet. Being a "good girl" means following the rules and doing what society dictates is "right" or "appropriate." Though there are some merits to societal conditioning, like encouraging people to share and use manners; however, the idea that these rules are required for someone to be worthy of...
