A Podcast for Women Looking to Change the Dialogue in their Life.

    I Answer Your Questions - Season Finale

    I Answer Your Questions - Season Finale

    This episode is quite a bit different than every other episode this season. I asked the community, via Instagram, to submit questions and I picked some to answer similar to a Dear Abby column.


    As we close out Season 2 I want to thank this beautiful community - especially since we've hit the 100K download milestone! We truly would not be here without each of you listening and sharing it with those you love.


    One of the most powerful things I have learned is what it means to rest. Just like flowers aren't always in bloom, we all have seasons and require periods of rest so we can bloom again. As this season comes to a close I will be taking time this summer to focus on rest.


    Stay tuned for season 3 Fall 2021! Be sure to hit subscribe so you will be the first to know when the new season drops.


    In this episode, I answer your questions!


    Now it’s your turn! Join me over on Instagram, or leave me a note here about what you would like to see on the podcast.


    What’s Coming Next?


    Stay tune for Season 3 in Fall 2021!

    Relationships: Attachment Styles and Finding Growth Edges

    What happens when you sit two relationship experts down for a chat?


    This episode is just that - two relationship experts, one conversation.


    Everyone has their own attachment style, it's the way we build and respond to relationships. When we understand our attachment styles we can better help our relationship maintain healthy boundaries.


    Speaking of boundaries, have you ever sat down with your partner to discuss your boundaries within the relationship?


    In this episode I sit down with Dr. Morgan Anderson to discuss attachment styles and growth edges within relationships.


    Dr. Morgan Anderson is a clinical psychologist and relationship coach, host of the “Let’s Get Vulnerable” podcast and creator of the E.S.L relationship method. She helps women break the toxic dating cycle, raise their self-worth and attract the healthy relationship they’ve always wanted. She’s on Instagram @drmorgancoaching - make sure you head over to her page and send her a DM to say hello


    In this episode, we discuss the following:


    Communicating in relationships and finding your boundariesUsing your attachment style to tune into how you show up in your relationshipFinding your growth areas for each attachment styleWhat security can look like in a relationship

    Motherhood: Putting Yourself First

    Motherhood: Putting Yourself First

    Have you ever reached a point, through your motherhood journey, where you felt like something needed to change in order for you to be happy?


    Perhaps you felt as though your needs were somehow lost in the mix while you were putting everyone else's needs ahead of your own. Who looks out for mom when she's taking care of everyone else?


    But what if I told you the change you need in order to reach happiness comes from within?


    This episode's guest is on a mission to encourage women, especially mothers, to prioritize themselves and choose to set time aside to do what makes them happy, outside of motherhood.


    In this episode I sit down with Katie to discuss her journey through motherhood including learning to love her body and putting herself first.


    Katie is a working Mom of three, a self-love advocate, a true believer in the mental and physical benefits of exercise, and she's on a personal mission to encourage women (especially Moms!) to put themselves on the top of their priority lists.


    During her second postpartum season, Katie - craving connection, and determined to develop self love and confidence - began sharing her life publicly on Instagram. What began as an accountability page for her postpartum fitness journey, grew into an authentic, vulnerable, and relatable journal of self acceptance, body respect, and the highs and lows of motherhood.


    In this episode, we discuss the following:


    Learning to care for ourselves as mothersKatie's a-ha moment of realizing she had to prioritize herself, as no one else could do this for herShifting out of goal focused body confidence to body positivityWaiting for motivation or time to show up (when it never really does)Showing up authentically with others

    Mental Load: The Unpaid, Invisible Work of Motherhood

    Mental Load: The Unpaid, Invisible Work of Motherhood

    Why is it that we treat men's time as if it is as "precious as diamonds" and women's time as if it is as "infinite as sand?" (As this week's podcast guest stated it).


    Chances are you never sat down with your partner, before moving in together, getting married, or having children, to discuss who does what. Who takes the trash out? Who buys the mustard? Who care for the children when they are home sick from school? Who coordinates their activities and schoolwork? If needed, who leaves their job to become a full-time parent?


    But how have mothers become the default?


    In this episode I sit down with Eve Rodsky to discuss mental load and her book FAIR PLAY. In her New York Times bestselling book FAIR PLAY, she uses her Harvard Law School training and years of organizational management experience to create a life-management system to help couples both rebalance all of the work it takes to run a home and reimagine their relationship, time and purpose.


    Eve Rodsky received her B.A. in economics and anthropology from the University of Michigan, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. After working in foundation management at J.P. Morgan, she founded the Philanthropy Advisory Group to advise high-net worth families and charitable foundations on best practices for harmonious operations, governance and disposition of funds. In her work with hundreds of families over a decade, she realized that her expertise in family mediation, strategy, and organizational management could be applied to a problem closer to home – a system for couples seeking balance, efficiency, and peace in their home. Rodsky was born and raised by a single mom in New York City and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their three children.  


    In this episode, we discuss the following:


    The smoothie requirements for Eve’s partner that led to building the Fair Play system and impacting change for women and couplesLosing our identities and the importance of the unicorn spaceWhen resentment shows up in our relationshipsThe Fair Play system and breaking down the CPE (Conceptualization, Planning, and Execution)

    Parachuting into Motherhood: Finding your Identity as a Step Mom

    Parachuting into Motherhood: Finding your Identity as a Step Mom

    Step moms seem to get a bad rap in movies - even cast in a poor light and labeled "Evil Stepmothers."


    In reality, stepmothers are human beings parachuted into co parenting arrangements they had no part in making.


    It can feel like fitting a circle peg into a square-shaped hole. You might be told you aren't a 'real' mother and in the same breath criticized for not being involved enough.


    No one hands you instructions on how to be a stepmother and there sure isn't a one-size-fits-all approach.


    In this episode, I sit down with Jamie Scrimgeour, a Life Coach specializing in Stepfamily Dynamics and the creator of The Exclusive Stepmom Community. We discuss her experience with becoming a stepmother and how her identity has changed since then.


    Jamie Scrimgeour is a mom of one and a stepmom of three with kids ranging in ages from 6-18. Jamie creates raw, real, and relatable digital content about all things parenting, step-parenting, entrepreneurship, and living a KICK-ASS Life. She is also the host of The Jamie Scrimgeour Podcast. With candidness and humor, Jamie uses her personal and professional experience to support woman in living their best life. 


    In this episode, we discuss the following:


    Jamie’s journey to becoming a step mom, as well as having a baby with a partner who already has childrenThe role of perfectionism and control that gets in the way of connecting with ourselves and our familiesThe stigmas and negative beliefs others have of step moms (and how this is different from step dads)Setting boundaries when there are so many demands and hats to wearManaging transition days and keeping a calendarNavigating challenges, boundaries, and growth in your relationship as you navigate what it means to be a blended familyShifting into acceptance and your identity as a step mom

    Now it’s your turn! Join me over on Instagram, or leave me a note here about your experience as a step mom.


    What’s Coming Next?


    My next episode is with Eve Rodsky, author of Fair Play, where we will talk all about the mental load and creating balance in your relationship

    Don't Go to Bed Angry: Relationship Myths

    Don't Go to Bed Angry: Relationship Myths

    "Don't go to bed angry" is probably one of the most common well wishes provided to newly weds during evening toasts and handwritten cards.


    But what this misses is that if you are escalated and angry, the last thing you should do is continue to talk about the issue at hand. When both partners are flooded and overwhelmed, this is a recipe for additional hurt words that do not get unheard.


    In this episode, I sit down with Greg, co-owner of Integrated Wellness, my business partner, my co-parent, and my partner in life, to discuss some of the common stereotypes, misperceptions and myths in romantic relationships. 


    In this episode, we discuss:


    - Not going to bed angry and what you can do instead


    - Is it love at first sight?


    - Are having disagreements dealbreakers?


    - Does validating my partner mean they are right?


    - "Happy wife, happy life"


    - The idea that women should be the ones to stay at home with the kids and how this is a huge myth in our own home


    - The stay at home parent isn't really "working"


    - Women hold the cards in the relationship to make things work

So good.

As a male I love the info in here. It’s helps me understand why my partner does what she does sometimes and the communication has been amazing between us. Yeah, we still fight but it gets resolved.
