E112: Creating Confidence and Overcoming Your Villains with Heather Monahan
We all have those moments of failure in our lives where we got fired, got rejected, or lost a business. And sometimes, that can be discouraging. It’s easy for self-doubt to creep in and get consumed by your fears. How do you gain the confidence to get back on your feet and reclaim your worth? In this episode, Heather Monahan joins us to talk about creating confidence and overcoming your villains through the three-step process of belief, action, and knowledge. Heather is a two-time bestselling author, a top 50 keynote speaker in the world, a podcast host of Creating Confidence, and a TEDx speaker. Having successfully climbed the corporate ladder for nearly 20 years, Heather Monahan is one of the few women to break the glass ceiling and claim her spot in the C-suite. And like some of the most successful people such as Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, and  JK Rowling, Heather also got fired from her job – but that failure became her catalyst for success. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: Invest in yourself now Breaking through the shame of getting fired Challenge the beliefs you’re holding and drop the label you were hanging on to Elevating your personal brand The three-step process to overcoming your villains Episode Highlights: [03:31] Invest in Yourself Now Heather was highly successful as a revenue generator, and just three weeks after she was named one of the most influential women in radio, she got fired for no reason. The key takeaway is that you have to Invest in yourself because that will stay with you forever. It doesn’t matter if you get fired, change companies, or start a side hustle, investing in yourself will go wherever you go. It’s the smartest investment you can make, even smarter than any real estate acquisition because it’s telling you that you’re worthy and you’re worth more because you’re building your competence. There is no shame in getting fired. Some of the most successful billionaires in the world had been fired. And that was the catalyst for their greatness. [12:02] Step Into Your Fears Challenge the beliefs you’re holding and drop the label you were hanging on to. Those beliefs and labels have been limiting you for too long. Step into your fear and you’re only building the confidence within yourself. [17:10] Elevating Your Personal Brand Elevating your personal brand shines a light on who you are and it allows people to get to know you before you actually face them. It’s pulling and attracting opportunities to you, instead of you chasing opportunities. [20:52] How to Overcome Your Villains: The 3-Step Process * Belief- Break down the beliefs you’re holding onto. Distill that belief and you will realize there’s actually no factual basis for it. * Action – Take action immediately. Take some action to move you in the direction of where you want to go in the future. * Knowledge – Surround yourself with the knowledge that empowers you and helps accelerate your planning process.

E111: A Conversation About Life, Death, and What it Means to Be Alive with Christa Doran
Do you find it difficult to show up? A lot of us tend to lean on this all-or-nothing mindset and we have this “go hard or go home mentality.” It’s all a matter of tweaking that kind of mindset. It doesn’t matter how much of yourself shows up, what matters is that you at least show up, because we all have our good days and our bad days. In today’s conversation, Christa Doran, owner and founder of Tuff Girl Fitness in Hamden, Connecticut, joins us to talk about life and success, grieving and death, living the best version of yourself, and what success should really look like. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: Why New Year’s resolutions don’t often work There’s power in just showing up The positive or negative domino effect Mastering the art of saying no and setting boundaries Dealing with the pain of losing her child Bearing witness to somebody’s pain instead of trying to make things better Deciding what success looks like for you Episode Highlights: [03:17] Why New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Work There’s this illusion that when we change our bodies a certain way then we’ll be happy. But that’s only a lie that a billion-dollar industry sells you. You can create change whenever you want. You don’t have to wait for the new year. Christa suggests setting the bar as low as you can. Set goals one at a time and once you achieve those goals, you can now layer them on. Show up, bring what you can, and let it be enough. [09:54] Mastering the Art of Saying No and Setting Boundaries Our society has vilified the word ‘lazy’ but there is nothing wrong if there are days you simply choose to not do anything. You also deserve to rest and feel good in your body. After all, nobody’s going to really care about how much you’ve achieved because those are mere expectations you have put on yourself. So learn to say no and set boundaries to protect your well-being and only say yes to the most important things. [19:36] Dealing with Grief and Pain  People want to fix the pain a grieving person is feeling and that’s uncomfortable. Instead, a better way to show your support to someone grieving is to simply bear witness to their pain. When you sit with somebody in pain, you’re making space for them to be in the process, and to feel and express. Don’t try to fix it and instead just support them with your love. Because the only thing worse than going through that is going through it alone. [22:26] Decide What Success Looks Like The true measure of success is not how many cars you have or how many houses you’ve invested in. It’s not whether you’ve written a book or you’ve cured cancer. The true measure of success is what brings you ultimate joy. And in order to do that, you have to prioritize yourself. Again, that means saying no to certain things and setting boundaries and saying yes to the most important things. If you don’t prioritize yourself, nobody’s going to help you do that. You have to care about yourself more than anybody, otherwise, everyone suffers. Resources Mentioned: IG: @christadoran and @tuffgirlstrong

E110: The Couplepreneur Life with Laura and Richard Behney
You’ve probably heard people saying that couples could never work together. Sure, at times, there may be friction and challenges along the way, but imagine sharing both a life and a business together —that’s sweeter, more fun, more intentional, more secure, and double the power! About a year and a half ago, my husband retired after a long career in law enforcement, and I needed to hire someone. He wanted to get out of doing what he was doing after so many years. This seemed like a perfect fit, so we dove into this new venture of working together. And so far, it has been awesome. Today, Laura and Richard Behney join the conversation to talk all about having a successful and healthy marriage – and possibly one where you’re working next to your spouse on a regular basis. Married for 30 years, Laura and Richard have become the experts on “couplepreneurship.” Through their brand, The Couplepreneur Life, Laura and Richard coach husbands and wives who own businesses together to help them bring back passion, unity, and adventure into their lives. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: Prioritizing marriage and reducing conflicts through planning meetings The birth of the Couplepreneur Life Why couples can always work together Teaching emotional intelligence in men Mistakes they’ve made and corrected as a couple Episode Highlights: [04:32] Prioritizing Your Marriage as a Couplepreneur When you’re running a business as a couple, you’ve got to put your marriage first in order for things to work in your business. Prioritize your marriage and the rest will just fall into place. Planning your dates and your time together forces you to focus on each other and get excited about date night just like you did when you were boyfriend and girlfriend. [10:23] Ways to Reduce Conflicts Go schedule planning meetings every week. Go somewhere outside of the office where you can relax and then talk about big-picture stuff. Whether that’s strategy, what happened last week, or your targets, going over those kinds of things can change your business tremendously. [16:28] Finding the Power in Working as a Couple   When you’re in business as a couple, it’s no longer just “my” business, but it’s “our” business. It’s no longer “me” but a “we.” There’s power in shared experiences because you are sharing each other’s day. By working together, you’re bringing in both your passions together and it feels more intimate and more secure because you’re fighting the fight – together. [25:25] Some Tips for a Successful Couplepreneur Life If you’re in business as a couple, never allow a third person, such as a key employee, to get in the way of your marriage, your business, and your authority. Another common mistake among couplepreneurs is not hiring soon enough. Couples may feel they can do everything on their own or they feel like nobody’s going to be able to measure up to the way they’re doing things. But you’ve got to invest in people to help you with the business. Resources Mentioned: www.thecouplepreneurlife.com IG: @thecouplepreneurlife

E109: Evolving into Your Best-Self with Kristen Hartnagel
Get ready to evolve into your best-self as Kristen Hartnagel, brand strategist and CEO of Evolve Now! shares some ways you can evolve into the most awesome and most authentic person you’re bound to be. Kristen has worked with New York Times bestselling authors, award-winning talent agents, celebrities, as well as billionaire influencers. As a keynote speaker, professional singer, and business coach, Kristen helps you evolve into the next level of greatness in your business and in your life. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: The coherence of your mind and heart How to start making changes that you want in your life What high performers have in common Feelings vs. emotions Ways to evolve into your best self Episode Highlights:  [04:46] The Coherence of Your Mind and Heart The brain’s function is to think thoughts while the heart is responsible for what’s called gut feeling. Some people refer to it as intuition, others call it the spidey senses. But it’s that heightened awareness telling you to pay attention. When both your heart and your head are coherent, you become more open. You can function better and you can access information better. Pay attention to what it feels like to be in coherence. The more you do that, the better you’re able to access your best self and you’re able to show up in a more authentic way. [09:59] How to Start Making Changes in Your Life We can all shift wherever we are to something better. Even if you’re a glass-half-full kind of person, it too can evolve into something even better. It all starts with this awareness that you are not the thoughts that you’re thinking. Kristen has a three-step process to get into a new habit of not reacting, but more responding: Detach with amusement – Be the witness and recognize that your brain is doing its function to think thoughts and you are not your thoughts. Reduce to the ridiculous – Know that the worst that something is trying to represent is still just a thought. It’s a puny thought that has no power over you. Invest wisely. Your thoughts are currency. Why would you want to deposit your thought coins into something you don’t want more of? [15:40] What High Performers Have in Common  High performers focus on what they can control. They don’t spend their energy on what went wrong. They’re not spending a lot of time trying to fix the past or obsessing over the future. Instead, they’re just in the now. They stay in that higher vibration of the positive what-ifs, instead of the negative what-ifs. [22:47] Ways to Evolve into Your Best Self Have a playful energy about what is next. When you’re in the midst of something you don’t like, instead of trying to analyze what you’re going to do, instead, throw up your hands and say you can’t wait to see what’s next. Every contraction is followed by an expansion, and every expansion is followed by a contraction. So don’t just hold on to the high, or you’d be upset when the low comes. You don’t have to react to what is bad. Instead, put your sights on what is good. If you’re someone who doesn’t know what you want, get in touch with how you want to feel. If you can tap into that, then you’re just going to create more experiences that will bring you more of that.

E108: Overcoming Generational Trauma with Lauren Zoeller
Join us today as we kick off 2023 by talking about all of the things that have been holding us back, so we can all heal and move forward. And our guest today is the perfect person to help us understand what trauma really is, how it shows up in our daily life, and what we can do to heal. Lauren Zoeller is a seven-figure entrepreneur, speaker, author, and host of “The Aligned Love Podcast”. As the Founder of The Aligned Love Experience, Lauren is an expert practitioner in reparenting, generational healing, and somatic experiencing. Through her work, she created the proprietary Voice Activation Method that has been used to help thousands of men and women heal from past trauma and take ownership of their future. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: The definition of trauma The role of the nervous system in trauma Hyper-independence and people-pleasing as trauma responses Somatic experiencing versus traditional therapy What Somatic Experiencing looks like in real life How the Voice Activation Method works Reparenting yourself to give yourself what you didn’t receive as a child Episode Highlights: [02:40] What is Trauma? At some point down the line, you have experienced trauma, or someone in your family experienced something traumatic. And if they weren’t able to regulate the response. Unfortunately, it gets passed down to you. Trauma is an overwhelming response to something that was too fast, too much, or too soon for your body to properly process what’s happening. If you don’t have the proper tools to remove yourself from it, the traumatic response gets stuck inside your body. [14:12] Somatic Experiencing Therapy versus Traditional Therapy Traditional therapy is when you go to your therapist and talk about your problems. It uses a cognitive approach where you’re talking about your problems and you’re reliving your traumas. It’s a talk-based therapy. It’s important for us to be able to talk through what has happened so that we can start to cognitively connect the dots. But what it’s missing is the other 80%, which is the rest of the body, from the neck down. Somatic experiencing is looking at the other 80%. It’s how you feel and it’s getting the body online with the brain. If you can use cognitive therapy and somatic therapy together, you’re going to see lasting change because you’re getting the body and the nervous system online with each other. Yoga is a great Somatic Experiencing regulation tool because it gets you to connect to your body and into your breath to regulate different survival responses. You’re using your breath, your body, and your awareness to allow yourself to regulate at that moment. [18:20] The Voice Activation Method The Voice Activation Method comes from a space of being able to speak your truth without the need for acceptance or rejection from someone else. If we’re not using our voice to speak how we actually feel, we’re not living a life that feels aligned. And that is translated into the kinds of relationships we have, whether in business, friendships, or even romantic relationships. The Voice Activation Method teaches us how to be with our bodies when we’re shutting down our truth as well as how to regulate that response so we can then start creating a new baseline, use our voice, and claim what we really want.

E107: Stretching Your Self to Be Your Best Self with Lesley Logan
Do you feel that somehow you’re not aligned? Whether that’s in your work or your personal life, there are some points in life where we feel that disconnect. Today’s guest will show you how Pilates can be your vehicle to reconnect with yourself to become your best self. And once you connect with yourself, you’re then able to connect more with others. Lesley Logan is a certified Pilates teacher, breathwork habits and mindset coach, and is the founder of OnlinePilatesClasses.com, which is the first free online catalog of Pilates exercise tutorials. Lesley has been teaching Pilates since 2008. She has run multiple studios, trained hundreds of peach people to become teachers themselves, and taught thousands of students. She also hosts the podcast, Be It Till You See It. Listen in as we talk about workday boundaries, giving yourself permission to be off, and how to increase productivity. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: How Pilates and other forms of movement can help you connect with yourself Why your rock bottom is happening for you The secret sauce to a relationship that lasts Excuses vs. success: Why you can’t have both When to give yourself permission to hustle How to increase your productivity Episode Highlights: [07:38] How Movement Connects You to Yourself Movement is connected to a person’s transformation because being able to find strength from moving your body carries over in other ways. Trauma leaves the body through breath and movement. And by having regular Pilates or movement practice, you just start to change and begin to connect with yourself. You’re strengthening that muscle that would then carry into work and your relationships. Whatever your workout method of choice is, it’s to help you practice the things you want to cultivate in your life. [11:20] Your Rock Bottom is Happening FOR You Your rock bottom is setting you up for something amazing. It’s hard when you’re in it. But take a moment to figure out what good can come from it. It’s actually a fun game. And oftentimes, you end up meeting some really cool people and you will be redirected to where you’re supposed to be. [23:59] Excuses vs. Success: Why You Can’t Have Both Do you often find yourself complaining about anything and everything? Whether you’re tired, it’s too hard, or you’re too busy – it’s not that you shouldn’t ever say them. But take those as little warnings. If they come up again and you have the same excuses, then you’re not going to make the change you want to have. Rather, you have to be more aware of what you’re saying you can’t do or why you can’t do it. Use them as a magnifier for what is happening in your life that you want to make changes on. The most successful people don’t complain or have excuses. Instead, they acknowledge whatever is happening and then figure out what they can do about it to pivot. [26:54] Giving Yourself Permission to Hustle It’s okay to have a hustle. It’s when your hustle becomes a hassle that you want to take notice. Sometimes you have to hustle because there’s momentum to things. It’s okay to hustle, it just can’t become a hassle. If you’re hustling in a way that is taking you away from other things in your life, such as when you’re no longer checking in with your relationships, then that’s a hassle.

E106: Building a Business with the Exit in Mind with Jim Erben
A lot of female entrepreneurs are so busy working in the business, trying to grow it and improve it, that oftentimes, they’re not taking the time to figure out what it is they actually want. On the other side, once they get to that point of what they determine as success, what does that look like? Do they keep going and hustling until they’re 65 years old? Or do they have an exit in mind? In today’s conversation, Jim Erben is talking about building a business with the exit in mind. Jim is one of the most highly sought-after “exit and succession” experts for privately-held business owners. His leadership has been recognized by the Inc 5000 list for building one of the fastest-growing companies in the nation, Erben Associates. Listen in to know more about Jim’s proprietary method called “succession by design, not default.” Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: Why women make better entrepreneurs than men Why Jim chose a niche practice When you should think about having an exit strategy Why men are more fearful to exit than women Common mistakes entrepreneurs make that inhibit their ability to exit What an emergency operating plan entails How to determine what your business is worth Episode Highlights: [06:50] When You Should Think of Having an Exit for Your Business Nobody’s helping people figure out how they want to get out of their business, whether they want to sell to a third party, transfer to their kids, or key executives. They go about their day-to-day and week-to-week, not necessarily thinking about what the exit looks like on the other side. But the time you should be thinking about having an exit for your business should be yesterday. [09:09] Why Men Are More Fearful to Exit Than Women Everyone’s fear when they retire or exit is that they run out of money, especially men, who are so wrapped up in their businesses. It usually becomes their identity. On the contrary, women have so many interests beyond just having a business. It doesn’t mean they’re not passionate and they don’t care about the business. But they have kids to take care of and they’re doing all other stuff. They’re social and very charitable. And so, they don’t get emotional about their departure.   [12:38] Common Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make that Inhibit Their Ability to Exit There are a lot of entrepreneurs that are so focused on working in their business instead of just working on the business. There’s this mindset that if they’re not the ones doing the work and building the hours, no one else could do it as much as you did. It’s very important for you to have clarity around what you want, whether it’s a monetary figure or a time figure. Once you know what you want, you start building towards that and once you know where you’re going, it becomes a lot easier to adjust. If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re just going around in a circle in your sailboat wondering why you’re not getting to a destination. [19:45] – [20:07] Success by Design, Not Default Everyone’s going to have an exit, including a horizontal exit. As Paul Simon said, there are 50 ways to leave your lover but there are not that many ways to leave your business. If you don’t have a plan by design, you will eventually have a plan by default. Somebody makes you an offer and it’s not enough. And you get distracted, because you don’t know what the numbers should be. Because you’ve never had your firm value.

E105: The Modern Feminist with Samantha Martin
In a society or workplace that’s dominated by men, how should women behave to be taken seriously? Honestly, women shouldn’t even be adjusting, to begin with; hence the call for gender equality across all industries. But there’s this stigma around the word “feminism” that it’s viewed as something extreme when it shouldn’t be. In today’s episode, Samantha Martin, attorney and founder of The Femish Organization, talks about the modern feminist. She shares interesting insights into gender equality, especially in a male-dominated space, and how we can all address this imbalance between masculine and feminine energies. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: What a feminist means Samantha’s experience in a male-dominated space Why women shouldn’t be adjusting themselves to meet the masculine energy default in a workplace How society views masculinity vs. femininity Episode Highlights: [02:00] What is a Feminist?  A feminist is just somebody who wants equal treatment and equal rights. Fair doesn’t mean everybody has the exact same thing. Fair means people get what they need in order to succeed in order to have a fair way in the game. Feminism helps everybody. It helps men and helps women. It helps every community, non-binary, and it’s good for everybody if people can just get past this connotation of being extreme. [05:31] Working in a Male-Dominated Space The legal industry is male-dominated when there are more women in law school. And yet somehow they get weeded out due to this internal struggle that exists. This is not only prevalent in the legal industry, it’s also in STEM where women all had the same experiences. Women do certain things at work to be taken seriously. But women shouldn’t even have to do that. Everybody has a different balance of masculine and feminine traits. But to adjust yourself to meet the masculine energy default in your profession is like letting them win. You’re almost admitting that masculinity needs to be there in order for a business to grow and be taken seriously. But it’s a game we have to break down. When you are being yourself and you’re expressing yourself, you’re being a better version of yourself, and you do everything better in your life, including your job. [11:31] How Society is Devaluing Femininity Society devalues femininity and it expects women to be a certain level of feminine. You should wear makeup, but don’t wear too much makeup. Don’t be super covered up but don’t be showing a lot of skin. There are all these rules and many more rules around femininity, while masculinity tends to be the default. Masculinity is more accepted in our society compared to femininity. If you’re a feminine man, you’re assumed to be gay, even if you’re just being a nurturing parent. And so, there’s this imbalance prevalent in heterosexual relationships, too. If we can start valuing femininity again and not looking at it like something that’s anti-feminist or weak, or all the stereotypical stuff that the patriarchy has told us it is, then we’ll be in a better place and we can make a better world.

E104: Becoming an Irresistible Brand with Jamie King
How do you build a brand so irresistible that you’re standing out from the crowd, but you’re still being your truest, most authentic self?  In this episode, Jamie King, aka “The Slay Coach”, talks all about branding and how you can become an irresistible brand in the most authentic way. Jamie teaches experts how to become expert educators and how to build courses, and empowers women to build seven-figure brands. If you want to learn how to monetize your knowledge and experience on the internet, Jamie is the go-to person. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: Why a personal brand is important How to harness the power of vulnerability in your brand How to stand out in a crowded place Jamie’s thoughts on following a launch model The power of setting boundaries around you Episode Highlights: [07:35] How to Build Your Personal Brand Personal branding is about uncovering things and finding out the parts of yourself that you are hiding. It’s about doubling down and amplifying your favorite parts about you and pouring rocket fuel on those things about you. Double down and amplify your presence, and own it. Discover the things that you love about yourself and love them more. Let people know and let people in on your personal details, and that creates a bond with people who resonate with you. [12:59] How to Stand Out in a Crowded Place Create and craft your unique value proposition or UVP, which is that thing that makes you unique. There are all kinds of reasons why people buy from you. But if you want to stand out, stop saying what everyone is saying. Stop following and doing what everyone else is doing. Look at what your competition does well and look at your unique skills and passions. Look at what is missing in your competition and what’s missing in the market. Then use your skills to fill that gap. [17:01] Should You Be Launching Every Week? A lot of people are duplicating business models in a launch format because it’s what has always been done before, instead of really looking at what is best for them (and their families), their personal energy maintenance, and their mental health. But there is power in doing what you know is going to fit you best – even if that means ditching the launch model so you could be more energetically and emotionally available for your family and kids. At the end of the day, you have to be able to set boundaries and hold space for yourself. Resources Mentioned: www.theslaycoach.com

E103: How to Have a Successful Relationship with Jaime Morgan
If there is one common impact on every single woman in the world – it’s relationships. We’ve all had a failed relationship at some point in our lives, whether it’s a marriage, friendship, or any other kind of human connection. Whether it was your fault or not, what’s important is to learn from those experiences as well as equip yourself with the tools and the self-awareness of what you want your next relationship to look like. In this conversation, Jaime Morgan, a relationship and personal growth coach, shares some tips and strategies to make relationships work. Jaime works with women who have been through divorce, and with couples who want to create “easy love” – a connected love that feels like it flows with ease. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: How to trust yourself to love again Post-divorce tattoos as a powerful sign of transformation How to get clear on what you want in your current relationship The Gottman method to make relationships work The 3 C’s of a successful relationship How to deal with conflict in your relationship Her thoughts on going to bed angry Episode Highlights: [04:31] How to Trust Yourself to Love Again A lot of times, we know intuitively when it’s not time yet and when we still have to process the feelings. When resentment, anger, sadness, or grief is taking over your life in disproportionate amounts, then it’s a good signal that it’s time to work on letting go. Letting go is not the action. It’s the result of surrender, awareness, and choosing that enough is enough. You acknowledge your feelings, but then you also choose to move forward. [12:40] The Gottman Method Created by John and Julie Gottman, the Gottman method provides tools that couples need to make their relationships work. If two people genuinely want the relationship to last over time, they truly can if they learn how to communicate in healthy ways, turn towards each other, and foster that connection and foundation of friendship. [16:00] The 3 C’s of a Successful Relationship To have a successful relationship, focus on communication, conflict resolution, and connection. Communication is not just about what we speak, it’s how we listen and our intention going into it. The most important work we can do in our relationship is the work we do on ourselves because the only person we can change is ourselves. Nothing changes, if nothing changes. It’s how we talk to each other, listen to each other, and argue. Because relationships include arguing and fighting and we can use conflict to bring us closer together if we know how to communicate in a healthy way. [19:20] How to Deal with Conflict in Your Relationship Go into a conversation with a different intention. Go in wanting to understand rather than being understood. Show up in that conversation with the intention to understand them better, and genuinely want to listen and hear what they say, and you will see how the other person softens up. Then there’s an energy shift that leads to an upward spiral of communication that comes from a place of trust. Resources Mentioned: www.jaimemorgan.com @thejaimemorgan
