    The One From Shelter to CEO, Founder of Evio Beauty - Brandi Leifso

    The One From Shelter to CEO, Founder of Evio Beauty - Brandi Leifso

    After fleeing a relationship,  Brandi found herself in a women’s shelter with $15 and a laptop to her name. With that laptop, she would learn how to photoshop and create a dream beauty brand, and sell its products before they even existed. What happened next is nothing short of tenacious and inspiring. That non-existent beauty brand dream just 5 years later became a $15 Million Dollar evaluated beauty company, Evio Beauty. Hiring fellow women from the shelter and creating change as she goes, we learn about running a business as a movement is something that will leave everyone inspired and hope-filled.

    The One About Instagram vs Reality & Crispy Soda W/ Danielle Catton

    Instagram vs reality images: helpful, harmful, fatphobic, privileged? There’s so much to uncover in the rise of these viral images, and holding space and respect for everyone’s valid experiences and feelings around them. Danielle Catton aka @DanielleIsAnxious stands out as someone willing to create representation in a larger body, with those viral images made by those by those in a thinner one (myself included).

    The One Where We Go Behind The Scenes With Team Papaya: Sam & Haley

    The One Where We Go Behind The Scenes With Team Papaya: Sam & Haley

    There’s a lot of curiosity when it comes to how we do what we do. From the day to day stuff, taking the plunge from a side gig to a main one, and finding your individual value on social media when NOBODY talks about it. Today, Team Papaya is on the show to share about their roles in The Birds Papaya Inc. Sam, my talent manager, and Haley, my operations manager, come to share their experiences of being a part of such an unconventional job. How it’s been getting taken seriously in an industry that still lacks credibility in the eyes of the world, real advice on what to do if you’re interested in starting, surprise parts of the gig too. That and more, because I wouldn’t be a good leader if I didn’t get some constructive criticism and dream up some lofty dreams of what’s next for us. 
    If you’re curious or wondering about the world of content creating, and social media. This is the show for you!

    The One About Spaghetti vs Macaroni With Shane Landry

    The One About Spaghetti vs Macaroni With Shane Landry

    After mentioning to my IG stories that Shane was coming back on the pod and he wanted to do an episode on Spaghetti vs Macaroni, I shot it down and asked my audience to ask him some questions. It was an overwhelming ask for this to be the episode. SO, here we are. Spaghetti vs Macaroni.



    But, that’s not all.



    We also discuss his time as a new dad to a baby, postpartum sex, and watching your partner’s body change throughout the years and what his perspective (honestly) is about it all. This conversation is both refreshing, hilarious and hopefully a bit healing too. It certainly was for me.
     
    Shane isn’t really on social media so don’t bother following him, he has like 9 posts and they’re all a joke. But, you can see him lurking in the background of everything I do, @TheBirdsPapaya xoxo

Finally an honest take on the important things

This is hands down one of the best podcasts ever! The value Sarah provides is phenomenal to anyone who exists! Suddenly I feel seen and heard and I know that I’m not alone. I needed this 20 years ago but I’m so glad I’ve found it now.

Sarah, I love you and I love your podcast BUT!

I have to say that I’m finding myself getting annoyed every time I listen because the amount of Ads throughout the conversations is getting really jarring. 1 ad is enough, or 2 at the beginning and the end, but 3 during one conversation is making it really hard to listen. The conversation is sometimes only 5 minutes in and there’s an abrupt ad role. And again and again right in the midst of someone talking! This isn’t how a podcast centred around deep and meaningful conversations should be!

Obsessed

All the way over in the UK, Sarah Nicole has changed how I look at things. I’m obsessed with her outlook on life. She is super sensitive and sweet with her guests especially when discussing sensitive topics. The only thing I dislike with the newer episodes is all the adverts. 3 ads in under 25 mins is too much for me.

5 stars for the content though.
