    18: Empathy for the Crazy Colleague

    18: Empathy for the Crazy Colleague

    This girl seriously has my heart. One of the things about entrepreneurship and mental health is that when you do meet people through business networking, be open to them becoming a trusted friend too. She and I spend lots and lots of time discussing business frustrations and she is truly an ally.
    When Tevia asked me to do an interview episode where she asks questions about things she wants to be more empathetic about in business and in life, I was so moved and inspired to keep saying my shit. My efforts are helping, one person at a time!
    Want someone who you can trust completely to be yourself and know that she'll have the utmost empathy for your situation? This amazing woman owns and operates Koda Bookkeeping Services and she will take care of your money frustrations, so you can take care of your business.

    17: Aftermath of a Panic Attack

    17: Aftermath of a Panic Attack

    You just don't know.  Unless of course, you do know.  Having a panic attack is the scariest thing ever - you think you're having a heart attack, or worse, you know you're not having a heart attack but your body just doesn't want to cooperate and won't let you breathe - you know it's a panic attack but you can't get it to stop. Listen to the aftermath of one of mine.
    Brooke is a 43-year-old adult living successfully with PTSD, Bipolar I, Panic Disorder, and Adjustment Disorder. While she doesn’t have a gruesome story of beatings, sexual abuse, or being deployed to a war zone, Brooke's story is not unique. She grew up feeling unloved and unaccepted by the one person she needed love and acceptance from the most — her mother. From an early age, she was raised with extreme religious beliefs, which caused permanent trauma that became a heavy burden in her own adulthood and motherhood. Today, Brooke is a business owner, single mother, friend to many, and stranger to no one. And she feels lucky to be alive — abundantly blessed to have found her way and to have found what has worked for her: medication, therapy, exercise, friendship, and motherhood. Brooke believes in making the distinction that she lives successfully with mental illness but does not suffer from it.  In this podcast she shares her personal experiences via a candid, no-nonsense, approach, Brooke intends to bring healing to those who may be struggling and awareness to communities at large, so as to stamp out stigma surrounding mental illness once and for all.

    16: Gaslighting & Traumatic Emotional Abuse

    16: Gaslighting & Traumatic Emotional Abuse

    WE ARE DISRUPTING THE STIGMA and talking about traumatic abuse and GASLIGHTING..  my FIRE interview with the enchanting, badass Dani Rae. She will NOT be quiet anymore.

    I kept saying to myself that I had to have people on the podcast to talk about things of which I could not speak. halfway through this interview, it hit me like a TON of bricks. OF COURSE, it was abuse that I endured. gaslighting is abuse. end of story.

    Listen to find out what that means and hear Dani tell her raw, unfiltered story of emotional, systematic, traumatic abuse. hear our RALLY CRY that this type of shit needs to stop.
