    3.02: Embracing Our Mind-Body Connection with Amina AlTai

    Hello, my loves. I'm excited to share this episode with you because it's one where we really just allow ourselves to examine what it's like to be a solopreneur, how our health can impact us as we're going on the solopreneur journey, and how to align our joy and nourish ourselves while we're chasing and running after our dreams.
    This week’s guest is the amazing Amina AlTai and, not only am I inspired by her, but I’m also fortunate enough to call her a friend.
    Amina is a holistic leadership and mindset coach. Over a decade in marketing where she helped launch over 30 startups and grappling with two autoimmune diseases led Amina to burn out. In hopes of healing her own life, she sought training and nutrition, fitness and mindfulness. She now teaches entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs how to balance a thriving career, body, and mind.
    Amina has worked with Deloitte, Outdoor Voices, and NYU, is an Entrepreneur Magazine Expert-in-Residence, and has been featured in Goop, Thrive Global, mindbodygreen, The Observer, Yahoo!, and more.
    Amina and I talk about everything from body hair to joy to making friends. We also talk a bit about building a business, going after your goals, your money mindset, and so much more!

    3.01: Caring for Yourself as an Act of Rebellion with Mira Mariah

    3.01: Caring for Yourself as an Act of Rebellion with Mira Mariah

    We’re officially in a new decade and a new season of the podcast!
    I wanted to start season three of The Point of Pain with Mira Mariah because she is someone I admire so much and she is breaking through ceilings I didn’t even realize were there.
    Mira is an amazing tattoo artist (in fact, she’s Ariana Grande’s tattoo artist!), a mother, a former speaker at Chronicon, and an amazing woman who has been featured in places like Allure, Nylon, Refinery29, etc. She also happens to have only one leg.
    In this episode, we discuss why I was blown away by Mira when I first discovered her, the experiences that shaped Mira into the bold person she is today, why we need to break the cycle of isolation that many people with disabilities or chronic illnesses experience, why she focuses on the solutions to a problem and not the cause, what it’s like to be a mother as a disabled woman, the profound recent loss of a beautiful spirit and disability advocate that she was blessed to be able to call her friend, and so much more!

    2.09: The Three Themes of 2019 with Nitika Chopra

    Being that it's the end of the year and the end of season two, I decided to do something a little different for this episode. For the first time, I'm doing a completely solo episode.

    By the time we return for season three in February 2020, The Point of Pain will have officially turned one year old. So, what better way to end season 2, the calendar year, and the first year of the podcast than by sharing some lessons learned throughout this year that I'll be taking with me into 2020 and season three.
