    Trust and Control Boundaries and Restriction Perfection and Growth Her passion for this content is palpable and this episode is emotionally nutrient dense.
    We talk about the transformations she's experienced in her own life, how that affects her work with clients, and how thinking "it's just me" can keep us silent and trapped in our pain.

    52. How do you know when you're on the path to healing?

    52. How do you know when you're on the path to healing?

    Today's episode is all about healing. Specifically as it relates to -
    emotional healing emotional recovery emotional work About a week ago a client that I'd been working with for about 5 months asked me, "How do you know when you're done?"
    We explored the question for a little while, and what became clear was that she wanted to know - "...when I've healed what I need to heal, and how do I really know when I've made progress?"
    The short answer is that the less activated a painful emotion is in you - anger, grief, worry, sadness, frustration, etc. - indicates how healed a memory, experience, or relationship is within you. 
    I this episode I explore the language we use to identify where healing work is needed.
    For example - Feeling activated vs Triggered 
    I also dig into a recent experience in my life where I had some healing work to do and how I navigated that process. 
    I hope you enjoy listening to this week's episode as much I enjoyed making it.

    49. Danielle x Kris Taylor - navigating challenges & creating opportunity

    49. Danielle x Kris Taylor - navigating challenges & creating opportunity

    In 2014, Kris Taylor published her first book - The Leader's Guide to Turbulent Times. She had no way of knowing just how right she'd be about "turbulent times", and 6 years later how much we'd all benefit from her knowledge.
    Kris Taylor is a speaker, author, educator and founder of Evergreen Leadership.  
    I first met Kris at a workshop she was leading along side of fellow coaches Caroline Dowd-Higgins, and my dear friend and former Don't Cut Your Own Bangs guest Lindsay Boccardo.
    It was at this workshop that I first admitted - out loud - that I wanted to make a podcast. The confidence and clarity to go from having an idea to making it a reality came as a direct result from Kris and this workshop. 
    This was a wonderful full circle moment for me. Kris was as gracious and generous in this interview as she was the first time I met her. I know you're going to love her too.
    Enjoy!

    48. The Relationship Between Goals & Emotions

    48. The Relationship Between Goals & Emotions

    In today's solocast I explore two questions about goals:
    When are goals necessary to make meaningful things happen in our lives? How do when know when it's time to abandon a goal, and move on? Somewhere in the middle of answering these questions I explore
    goals and expectations goals and disappointment goals and accomplishment And most of all:
    goals and emotions Whether it's a personal goal, business goal, or creative goal - our goals are driven by an emotional desire - worthy, important, accomplished, accepted, maybe even RELIEVED.

Hilarious and Inspiring

Completely relatable, Danielle has a way of making her guests feel comfortable and subsequently all of her listeners feel completely at home while listening to her pod. Don’t cut your own bangs inspired me in my personal endeavors on so many levels, and I’ve gone on to follow her guests and continue to find inspiration in their “moments” as well as their successes. Danielle is also one of the most hilarious people I’ve ever met-she had me rolling our entire conversation. Nothing like grocery shopping with a smile while listening to your podcast!
