I’ve been demanding a lot from my body, my mind and my well-being. Since Mend Yourself Well is no longer just a passion project, I’ve decided to bring the movement into my...

011: Health, Hope and Happiness

I GET FIRED UP IN THIS EPISODE!! I share only a portion of ALL that I could share on THIS topic… I could talk for DAYS on THIS topic.

010: 3 Tips to Attracting YOUR Dreams

One of the reasons I love hosting a podcast is that with the help of technology, I could literally record an episode at any moment.

And I share all the juicy details with you as I record this episode from the showroom floor of my local Infiniti dealership as I sit in the brand new model of my dream car, which I actually purchased an older model...


009: Meditation 101 | My Personal Experience

Meditation never came easy for me. I’ve heard for decades that meditation can be life changing. I had tried several times to actually sit and meditate. But I didn’t know exactly how to dive into this discipline. NOw, after one month of committing to this practice, I find this practice calling for me. It all started about a month ago in December of 2017 when I interviewed one of my first guests for the show, Dr. Vic Manzo. I asked him what was one thing his wellness regimen couldn’t live...

So here in this episode, I teach you how to reinvent YOURSELF! You don’t have to do it all at once, but the first step is really taking a “life’s inventory.” What...


006: What I Thought I Never Had Was There the WHOLE time: A Love Story

I’ve been excited (and totally nervous) about telling this story since before I even conceived the idea of hosting this podcast. An idea I had in my head, a story I made up and believed my entire life, was proved wrong in an instant. An area of my life that brought me so much pain, frustration, hurt, loss, feelings of incompleteness, sadness, emptiness, fleeting moments of what I thought was what I was looking for, came over me out of nowhere. We are talking DECADES of suffering...


005: A Story of a Recovering People Pleaser: More on Expectations | Codependency | and Accepting an Imperfect Life

In this episode I dive in deeper on the conversation I had with Heather in episode 4. I share my own personal struggles as a recovering People Pleaser, the expectations I’ve put on myself, which lead to a downward spiraling case of depression, and living with this idea that I had to be perfect in every moment. As you could imagine, living like this for a lifetime would lead one to crash and burn, and that is what I did in 2015 at the age of 31. And at weakest point in this journey,...


004: Guest: Heather Nichols | Having a Conversation About Expectations

Recording this episode was fun for many reasons. We got to know each other a little deeper over tea in my office. This was also the first “interview” I’ve ever done, besides interviewing prospective employees. I’m always up for the challenge of learning a new technique and with this sweet soul, there was definitely no feelings of pressure or intimidation. Heather and I got to hangout and have a real deep conversation about our lives and how expectations of ourselves and others can...


003: Practicing Self-Care: Being in the Moment Every Moment

In today’s episode I am literally practicing self-care as I record this episode. I find some quiet time where I can just sit by the lake and soak up nature, and watch the ducks! In this moment I realize how grateful I am that I can have this time, to just be in the moment. I don’t have to be anywhere else. I don’t have to do anything. I am not rushing. I can just be. I’ve waited years to JUST BE. Just be present. Just be relaxed. To just be with myself. I share what my journey of the...

002: The 3 Simple Steps to Begin Your Path | Visualize | Prepare | and Commit

The day my journey of mending myself well really began when I made the decision to pick myself up. When I decided enough was enough. When I woke up to the idea that a better life was waiting for me, I just had to do the work to earn it. I had been playing small and living a life less than I was destined for. My first step in all my transformational moments have always been to picture what exactly it is that I want. When you visiualize the outcome or the path that you want more of,...
