Ep. 21 - Best Thing From The Worst Thing
Michael Hackett and I grew up together in Baton Rouge, LA. Our fathers are both veterinarians and best friends. The best way for me to describe Michael is....one cool cat. Michael got the surprise of his life a year and a half ago when he was diagnosed with colon cancer. His whole life was turned upside down to say the least. What he says about this major life event will surprise and inspire you!
Ep. 20 - You Buy Your Will Power At The Grocery Store
Have you ever seen someone across a room and just known...this person will be my friend? Brian Brister is one of those people for me. He is the biggest breath of fresh air and has lost a whopping 153 pounds. Brian says, "Food is what I did." Growing up in a Southern household...it is just the way things are done, people. Brian is from Mississippi and I am from Louisiana. Trust us...we know. His reason for wanting to lose weight? "I just wanted to be skinny." Little did he know, 50 pounds into his 153 pound weight loss, God would tell him to become a health coach. From that point on, everything has changed for Brian...and I do mean everything. He has built his emotional tool belt to maintain his weight loss and pay it forward. This is one of my favorite conversations about life long food addiction and how it can be conquered. One of the ways to do it: buy your will power at the grocery store.
Ep. 19 - Taking You To The Movies
With all the craziness going on in the world, my pal Jodi Gianfala and I decided we wanted to take you to the movies by discussing some of our favorites and why you should see them. Since the country is basically on lock down and we are all being told to stay home, we wanted to give you a list of must see movies if you need to escape here and there during this trying time.
Jodi has seen...wait for it...65 movies in the theater in the last year. Not kidding. She gives you her recent picks and I give you my old school pics. Such a fun discussion we had.
Please stay home. Wash your hands. Stay well. Love you. Mean it.
Ep. 18 - Moving On
I recently moved from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. Adios, Nola. It was time to shake things up and stop being a traveling gypsy. Y'all, it was the best decision I have made in a long time. In this episode, I discuss my moving history, my back story, how I ended back in Louisiana after 12 years in Texas, and why having my things back in my world and out of storage has changed my life. Oh-and no more Ambien-and I am convinced it's because of this move!
Ep. 17 - No More Crumbs
Happy 2020, y'all! Where have I been? A LOT has been going on in my life. I touch on this and welcome my first returning guest, Kristen Dowd. We have had so many questions since her first appearance, we decided to answer some FAQ about the program we call Our Happy Place. We go deep on some personal issues, discuss how 2019 was one of the worst years I have had in a while, and how our whole lives have changed with one easy decision. Getting healthy has changed everything for us and we debunk it all in this convo. This is not my typical interview where I ask most of the questions. Kristen asks a lot of me this go round. Enjoy. Love y'all. Mean it!
Ep. 16 - Entrepreneurs & Introverts
Melisse Campbell and I chat about strategies to minimize stress, and about our lives as entrepreneurs and what it means to be your own boss...the good, the bad, the sometimes ugly. Interestingly enough, we are both somewhat introverted. I know, I know...I host a podcast, so how introverted can I truly be? Well, I am an introverted extrovert and Melisse and I discuss strategies for dealing with this weird oxymoron of a life. We talk planners (we both love paper calendars), hiding in the bathroom at a party (it works), career freedom, and multiple streams of income. Melisse's Control Freak example - ohhh...it's a fabulous one!
