Community On Purpose Ep 48-Raphaela Cohee
Welcome to another episode of Community on Purpose, the podcast where we sit down with women who are intentionally creating community through business, giving or living. I’ve got to give a little trigger warning for today’s episode - we talk about our usual favorites here - identity, mentorship, community - but we’ve also got some trauma we cover and specifically a story, with a happy ending, but tragic just the same around kids and drowning. Our guest Raphaela Cohee shares how her identity changed with a significant tragedy and how her beliefs about herself were challenged not only by a medical diagnosis but by accepting that she was simply not in control. Married for the last decade to her husband Taylor and with two children, Raphi is a master networker, a prowling friendship maker, and an avid believer that we were not meant to do this life alone. Her stories of discovering how people can come together from a living room gift exchange to a massive gala supporting organizations specifically aimed at giving community and a leg up to women and children is both inspiring and necessary. You’ve heard me say it before, community does not happen on accident, and Raphi’s powerful story about how showing up has shown up for her, how serving others has given her purpose and direction, and why she believes that making a difference in this world starts with making a difference for just one person. Listen as Raphi shares her story with us and challenges you to share your story with others. Let’s Go!
Community On Purpose Ep 48- Jordan Maney
Welcome to another episode of Community on Purpose, the podcast where we sit down with women who are intentionally creating community through business, giving or living. Today’s episode doubled as a personal therapy session with Miss Jordan Maney, the Radical Joy Coach who helps bleeding heart creative business owners learn to be advocates for themselves and their communities through the practice of rest.
Jordan has coached business owners from a variety of industries and having spent four years lovingly disrupting the wedding industry as a planner and advocate of marginalized couples, she pivoted exclusively towards rest and joy coaching with an equity lens in 2020. Our conversation was deeply personal where I asked Jordan questions about how we define rest, how we create boundaries, and how as leaders we can model this behavior for our communities.
I absolutely love Jordan’s perspective on rest being a collective action and why so many of us aren't getting any because we don’t have an individual practice or a community to lean on. Her definition of bleeding hearts as natural advocates who champion everyone but themselves really struck a cord, - the idea that many of us care for everyone else and how Jordan is helping people just like this advocate for their own needs.
This podcast episode is powerful, impactful and Jordan’s passion is evident - knowing when to listen and when to speak, sharing from her heart, building spaces where people don’t have to fit in - everyone needs some Jordan in their life. Listen in and listen up, you are going to want to pause and repeat this episode many times over.

Community On Purpose Ep 45- Brooke Guerrero
Welcome to another episode of Community on Purpose, the podcast where we sit down with women who are intentionally creating community through business, giving or living. Today’s conversation with life coach Brooke Guerrero centers around the pivotal moments in our life that necessitate community, consistency, and connection. 13 years sober, Brooke talks about how falling out of community drove her to identify with a new brand of herself and how her recovery journey filled with repair and mindset resets has led her to help others today. As the mom of two kids, her experiences have shaped her perspective on self worth, being a truth teller, the importance of filling up your own cup, and not believing what others say about you, when only you can be the author of your own story. Brooke shares the intimate story of her disease, the diagnosis of her son with Autism at 20 months old while balacing a new born and her career, all while feeling like she was failing at it all. We talk about how often imposter syndrome, identity crisies and feeling disconnected show up with women and how we can all be better about supporting those around us who feel less than. Through humor and authenticity, Brooke shares a behind the scenes look at the right and wrong communities and how she’s learned that through giving, you can receive - and that’s the piece that many are missing in their journey to community. Let’s get started!
Community On Purpose Ep 44- Michelle Jones

Michelle believes that we deeply need each other and while many people feel like they need to carry their burdens alone, she has come to recognize that it is not a failing but a triumph when we increase support and reach out to others. Michelle shares her feelings on shame and hope and how trusting your intuition and and asking for help can impact our own capacity for opening up and supporting others. Coming from a place of collaboration rather than competition, Michelle discusses her peaks and pits of leading, learning and loving. Join us in a conversation together.
