[Earn More]: 4 Ways Earn More Money Without Spending More Hours Working Ep. 745

7/7/2022
It may feel like the only way to earn more money is to work more hours but that’s a false belief. It’s also possible to get paid for things that are intangible, like connections, and to get paid multiple times for work that you do once. Today we’re talking about how to get out of the paradigm of trading time for dollars. It’s part of a week of episodes on earning more. And may I say, this is when things get really juicy!

[Earn More]: Stealthy Strategies for Getting a Raise Ep. 744

7/6/2022
Perhaps the most obvious way to earn more money–which is the subject of all the episodes here on How to Be a Better Person this week–is to get a raise at work. And yet, according to a Payscale survey, 60% of Americans have never asked for a raise. Today’s episode is designed to keep you out of this 60%! I’m talking with DeAnne Pearson, a career coach in Austin, Texas, and the founder of DeliberateCareers.com. I've sent many people to DeAnne over the years to help them figure out how to earn...

[Money]: What Costs You Should NOT Cut. Ep. 741

7/1/2022
There are things you should NOT cut your spending on even though prices have risen. I can't tell you exactly what those things are, but I CAN help you figure it out for yourself. Judge me if you will, but one of my non-negotiables is a cleaning person--it gives me my weekend back (although, really, I still spend most of the weekend doing others chores; they're just ones I basically enjoy) AND it saves my relationship. Don't worry -- you can fund these things by plugging up the leaks and...

[Money]: Save Money by Plugging Up the Leaks in Your Budget: Ep. 738

6/28/2022
Spending money on things you don’t use, need, like or even realize you’re spending is like trying to fetch water with a colander–or like your bank account has sprung a leak. Today we’re talking about how to plug up the little–or maybe big–leaks in your monthly expenses so you have more money to do things that matter, like give, save, invest, or donate, without impacting your bottom line.

[Body Acceptance Strategies]: Turn In Your Body Police Badge, EP: 736

6/24/2022
Our collective culture has always prized certain body types and sizes over others. We reinforce it in the paintings, photos, television shows, movies and social media posts that we watch. They say representation matters, because when you see those same images of the same types of physical appearances over and over and over again you internalize that look as the best way to look. Meaning, you become a member of the body police–and you start looking for all the ways you and the other people...

I’m super excited about today’s episode because it’s a topic I’ve been really feeling into lately, both as a woman who recently got my menopause wings (I don't call menopause "The Thickening" for nothing), and as the mother of two young teens who are going through all the changes that come with puberty. But body acceptance is really vital at any age, and that’s what today’s guest can help us think about in new ways. Today I’m talking with Alissa Rumsey, a New York City Registered Dietitian &...

[Body Acceptance Strategies]: Wearing Clothes That Fit, EP: 733

6/21/2022
Body acceptance is something that’s pretty internal. It comes from changing how you think and feel, and while I LOVE talking about the mind component of any change, sometimes you just want to know what to DO differently. Today I’m sharing something you can do. And that is to wear clothes that fit your body--no more squeezing in to the size you wish you were or think you should be, or hiding under a too big size. Let's just let our bodies be seen in their actual size! How to Fix Vanity Sizing...

6/20/2022
After we’ve all been cooped up with the pandemic, a lot of us are feeling like we’re emerging with a different body than we went in with thanks to all kinds of reasons, from stress eating to working at home where the fridge is always right there. AND, our collective culture has been teaching us for centuries that certain body types are better than others, and we’ve internalized those messages. When really, the only people who benefit from maintaining any kind of physical ideal are the diet...

6/15/2022
Today’s power snack is more of a category than a particular snack, but that just means it comes with tons of options so you won’t get sick of it any time soon, and it is: SEEDS. Why seeds? As the baby of a tree or a plant, they contain everything a new plant being needs to come alive and thrive. Which means they are PACKED with nutrition.

After last week’s episodes on getting involved in the effort to curb gun violence, I felt like we could all use a subject that was a little less… intense. (Myself included.) You know, a little palate cleanser. And that subject, is snacks. Specifically snacks that are a) yummy, because, of course taste comes first, and b) easy to pull together, because when you want a snack you and it now, and c) healthy. Maybe even ridiculously healthy. Like, if you ate more of these foods your nutrient...
