    Taking A Pause with Cait

    In this episode I sit down, reflect on September, and prep for October. This "guide" like episode gives you a rundown on how to go into "sober October" with a strong sober-care routine. 

    I've always said how  important it is to take a break when you need it...and I share why I'll be taking October to reset.

    Hitting Rock Middle with Sallie Holder

    Hitting Rock Middle with Sallie Holder

    In this episode, I’m joined by Sallie Holder, a business coach who discovered her passion to help other female entrepreneurs once she decided to live a sober lifestyle. As we listen to her personal journey leading up to and becoming a non-drinker, Sallie shares how she found her sense of self in sobriety after years of following other people’s roadmaps.



    We also talk about the unexpected shift from numbing out to processing and accepting all emotions that come up after you quit drinking. Sallie shares tips and tools on how to get through your first few days of sobriety and how to maintain a sober lifestyle in the years to come.



    Learn more about Sallie:



    Sallie Holder is the founder and CEO of The BRIMM, a podcast host, author, speaker, and expert business coach. Prior to founding The BRIMM she had a decade-long legal career and then went on to operate as the COO of six fortune 500 companies across six different industries (she's seen it all). All of that knowledge is what enabled her to follow her passion, which is helping more female entrepreneurs create the 7 figure businesses that they desire. When she's not helping female founders you can find Sallie at home with her two children and two sweet pups: Chewie and Sugar.

    Happiest Sober with Madeline Forrest

    Today's conversation is with your sobriety hype girl, Madeline Forrest. We talk about the importance of starting again and again, and how setbacks can often lead you and fuel you into a stronger follow-through if you pick sobriety back up after setting it down.



    Madeline also shares her multiple experiences that led to her moment of clarity, the tools she used to help lay her foundation to ditch the booze, and how she navigated the relationships in her life going through sobriety.



    We also dive deep into her Instagram, Happiest Sober, which has over 20,000 followers, and discuss if having social media held her accountable through her journey.

    When It Works, It Works with Aaron Sternberg

    When It Works, It Works with Aaron Sternberg

    In this episode, Sara and I chat with our friend, Aaron Sternberg. Unlike our recent episodes, Aaron has had somewhat of a linear journey in his sobriety. It was after his parents sent him to rehab in his teenage years that he found his moment of clarity and chose to become sober.



    We talk about what it took to get out of his comfort zone, the tools he learned and continued to use after rehab, and the importance of removing the result-mentality of being sober for X years versus learning to enjoy the work you put in to maintain sobriety.



    Despite his linear journey, Aaron acknowledges the many triggers, trials, and tribulations he experienced and honors the emotional ebb and flow as he stays on a “straight path.”

    10 Minutes at a Time || Pt. 2 with Kelsey Rootenberg

    *Disclaimer - this episode does not provide professional advice. If you're on the fence about implementing a substance back into your life, we'd recommend speaking with your doctor, therapist, or maybe your sponsor. 

    ___



    We’re back with Part 2 of our conversation with my friend, Kelsey Rose Rootenberg as she shares her non-linear journey with sobriety. We do talk about some triggering topics in this discussion including Kelsey’s choice to no longer be sober after 21 months of not having weed.



    Substances are always tricky. Some people might identify as sober and still smoke weed, but Kelsey doesn't. And we get into why. She talks about the choices she’s made that feel the best to her and what has been relevant to her overall health and recovery.
