S2E12: Self-Care vs Self-Sabotage | You Are a Boss Lady Series

How we take care of ourselves inside and out matters. I hate to say it. When we treat our body with dignity, we feel dignified - and there’s this intoxicating energy that comes with it that even makes our family feel good too. If doing something or wearing something helps me feel strong and confident, I WANNA DO WAY MORE A THAT. And whatever makes me feel like hiding when the doorbell rings, I WANNA DO WAY LESS A THAT. This isn’t about meeting cultural beauty standards. This is about...


S2E11: For Those Moments You're Just a Smidge Resentful | You Are a Boss Lady Series

I love the idea of being a boss lady who handles her business, but I can’t seem to stop resenting all the business I’m handling. Just last Saturday I decided I wanted the kitchen nice and clean. I don’t know what happened, but as I approached hour two of picking some stuck on goo off my floor, I started to see my husband just - relaxing. Watching football. And I saw my girls pulling out huge containers of toys, throwing them around like freaking confetti. I saw red. I just looked at my...


S2E10: How to Handle Your Business | You Are a Boss Lady Series

It’s still vivid in my mind. The sun was shining bright and I had hope in my heart. In my cheer, I had asked for help loading the dishwasher while I did a few other various tasks. After drinking my coffee, I went to put it in said dishwasher and stumbled upon what looked like a hoarder’s secret closet. Food spilling everywhere, random dishes caked with who knows what, Tupperware strewn about - and I think I found even a shoe - shoved in a Whirlpool. This wasn’t help, it was...


S2E9: If You Could Live 5 Other Lives, What Would You Do? | New You Boo Series

Kendra asked me a simple question that was so simple, but blew my mind. She asked, if you could live 5 other lives, what would you do? Think about it. If you weren’t doing what you’re doing now, what would you do? Have you ever really, truly thought about it? Coming up with 5 was a lot for me. It stretched me to go deep into my inner heart’s desire and I discovered two things … One, I long for a life that, at least on occasion, is away from social media, away from the Internet. Away...


Are You a Flake? | New You Boo Series

I'm a flake addict. I agree to things I have no real intention of doing and then flake at the last minute. As I slip into my oversized elastic waist pajama pants, I shoot out text with a lame excuse as to why I can't make it. It's not a lie per se, it's just missing some essential truths. "Y'all have fun without me! Wish I could be there!" Then I turn on Netflix and put my blanket up to my chin. I also struggle to put my grocery cart back. All I need is a curb and I'll hop a wheel up and...


E2E7: An Immediate Remedy to Get Your Butt out of that Rut | New You Boo Series

Not to be dramatic or anything, but the power of trying something new can not be underestimated in its ability to completely transform you life. Every boring rut has had a root of fear of something new. I mean, what if we try it and ... we don't like it? But what if you do? In fact, what if you love it? What if, even if it doesn't make sense at the time, it's precisely the experience you need to have that will give way to your purpose, and your next great adventure. And if you don't...


S2E6: Get Your Crap Together | New You Boo Series

August isn't just back to school, it's time to get back to you! If you spend most of your day reacting to life, you're not alone. If spending your day reacting feels empty, meaningless, stressful, disappointing, unfulfilling, yada yada yada - you are also, not alone. This month we are going to be talking about a NEW YOU BOO. We're going to try new, exciting things, create new, satisfying habits and finally get our freaking crap together. We're no longer reacting, we're responding. It...


S2E5: Admit You Don't Know What You're Doing and Do It Anyway. A chat on Otherhood with Cindy Chupack

Hey friends - I have to be honest, this is the most fun I’ve had recording a podcast in a long time. This was a live event we hosted in Kansas City and an incredible interview with writer/directer Cindy Chupack. She’s most known for her work on Sex and the City, but she’s also a New York times bestselling seller and has so many Emmys and Golden Globes she ran out of shelf space and had to have garage sales. Her credits are a mile long. She’s currently on her Netflix screening tour for her...


S2E4: Flop Outta The Boat! | You Are Brave-Ass Woman Series

We're done overthinking. We're done scanning for danger. We're done focusing on the negative that's preventing us from doing what's best for our lives. It's time to step out of the boat and just say screw it - I'm choosing to have faith I won't sink. And if I do sink, God's gonna catch me. In the bible, Peter is asleep in the boat when he sees Jesus walking on water. He's a brave, bold man and tells Jesus he wants to be on the water with him. Jesus calls for him to come. Peter steps out...


S2E3: Self-Hate Ain't Great | You Are a Brave-Ass Woman Series

Today is the day you cut the crap. Self-hate talk. We've all been guilty of it. Some of us worse than others. We're like our own mini-Simon Cowell, just sitting there with a big fat LOSER button in front of us. Every time we try and be brave, our little mini-Simons are all smug with his stupid v-neck tee (and always with the hard nipples - wear a thicker shirt Simon!), judging, criticizing and being cruel ... slapping that LOSER button - and defeating ourselves. I mean, if we can't count...

Happiness emerges from connection. Here's the bad news: Connection will cost us something. A beautiful way to connect is through gratitude. And sadly, a lot of us suck at it.

One day Jill and her husband decided to sell everything, including their home, pack their 4 kids into an RV and travel the US for an entire year.

INTS Hilarious Short Stories: I Paid Money to Be Terrorized for an Hour

In today’s Hilarious Short Story Anna shares the year she went to a Haunted House with her BFF dressed as Alex and Piper of OITNB (in my defense, it was before the series went to crap) The Haunted House was put on by an Artist Co-op (first red flag) and found herself in the midst of a disgusting phycological thriller where she had to sign a waiver agreeing that she did not have PTSD or experienced violent or sexual trauma. So … yeah. Wait until the part where she has to touch noses with a...


S1E8: How To Be In The Right Place At the Right Time

On today's episode, we talk about how to find yourself at the right place at the right time. It’s not luck. It’s not a coincidence. It’s what I call, "Ruth’s Rhythm." I’m talking about THE Ruth - not the chick from Ozark or your friend from high school. I’m talking about Ruth from the Bible here, people. While reading the book of Ruth in the Word Up Club, I discovered there are 5 Steps to Ruth’s Rhythm that I believe position you for a blessing and put you in the right place, at the right...
