    Nobody Cares About Your Goals

    Nobody Cares About Your Goals

    As part of my #40to40 countdown, I'm bringing you another one of my lessons that I've learned through my almost 40 years on the planet. The lesson: nobody ACTUALLY cares about your goals.

    The real question we need to be asking more consistently are not how will we achieve our goals, but what goals ACTUALLY matter to us?

    I've spent the majority of my life feeling safe and "on track" when I have had goals that I'm working towards. But then, I am left feeling eventually let down once it's been achieved. Why? It's because I've never truly been connected to my larger why.

    Whether you're obsessed with goals or not, I think this topic warrants more conversation about what's really motivating us behind getting after these goals.

    Here's what I know: setting and achieving goals doesn't make you happier. It just makes you more productive. There is a huge difference between being 'happy' and 'effective'. And people tend to confuse the two.

    Let's start giving ourselves the permission to chase the goals that have real meaning to us; not the ones that we tell ourselves we 'should' be chasing.

    Why Aren't We Talking about Sex and Love Enough?

    Why Aren't We Talking about Sex and Love Enough?

    Let's talk about SEX baby! Wait, what??

    If you ask a teen-aged boy what constitutes bad sex, he’s likely to talk about the fact that he wasn’t all that attracted or that he didn’t have an orgasm. If you ask a girl of similar age about bad sex, she’s going to talk about pain, humiliation, or degradation — something that just doesn’t come up with boys. She probably won’t even mention affirmative lack of pleasure, because we’re still too often teaching both boys and girls that female sexual pleasure is just not a priority. Good sex means not being treated badly or not having too much discomfort — at least as far as girls go.

    I’m sorry — I’m just not OK with that!

    In today's episode, I want to be open and talk to any woman who has felt the need to use sex as a way to feel wanted, desired, loved, or validated. There is zero judgment in this conversation. I’m wanting to talk through this because I don’t think it’s talked about enough, and because I’m literally obsessed with talking about topics that are in some shape or form connected to how enough we do or do not feel, I feel like we had to go there. Come on, I’m about to be 40. It’s time. 

    I'm by no means a sex expert or a relationship coach. In fact, I typically avoid talking about sex or love at all costs. But something in me has me wanting to open up more about topics that I have tended to shy away from. Not because I'm an expert, but because in approaching 40 and in my #40to40 celebration, I'm embracing the decade of being unapologetic. And that means, I’m no longer willing to shy away from topics that intimidate me. So here it goes...my most vulnerable episode yet.

    Conversations with Dad

    Conversations with Dad

    The relationship a daughter has with her father is a special one. I think we could agree that a father has the potential to influence his daughter's life in a ton of ways - from her self-esteem, to her confidence, to self-image, and ultimately the relationships she forms with a partner. In today's episode, my Dad (Rocco Scippa) aka the Comeback Kid shares his reflections on his fair share of successes and failures. Rocco muses about it's all been worth it (even the lows) and how it's all contributed to what has made him a better person today. 

    In his brutally honest, unapologetic style, Rocco lets you into his life by sharing what it was like growing up as an Italian immigrant in East Boston, navigating fatherhood, his addiction, and how he climbed to the top of his career as a real estate developer - even when the stakes were against him. The approaches he's taken to facing the highs and the lows of his life have been inspiration for me.

    If you take anything from his adorable storytelling style, I hope its a laugh and a nugget of wisdom that you can apply to your life. My dad is an embodiment of the ultimate form of betting on yourself, even when the chips are down and there's few people who believe in you. 

    Let this episode serve as a reminder to you that sometimes the relationships that form with our parents may not always be easy to understand, but we can learn to appreciate them later in life.

    The secret payoff to staying stuck

    The secret payoff to staying stuck

    We all have to shake things up from time to time. In this episode, I decided to do something different and just speak from my heart. No script, no research, just me. Recording from my family's home in Massachusetts, I explore what has been my dirty little payoff to staying stuck in certain patterns with my family and how they come back in full FUEGO whenever I come home. Something about this trip has me realizing that it may be time to FINALLY shift from that place where I've been stuck rather than hoping in vain that the change I desire will come about magically and painlessly.

    What I realize is that when you've mastered yourself but still come up against internal resistance (because you always do), you're able to acknowledge it, and work through it with trust. What I'm learning is that openness and awareness are at the heart of the process and the mind’s role is to identify and let go of the emotions that can stop you from following their heart’s directives.

    Let this episode be a reminder to trust yourself enough to move beyond the patterns that have kept you comfortable and stuck playing small. You may surprise yourself how much these "comfortable" behavior patterns aren't serving you.

    Surviving or Thriving: A Conversation with Emily Adams

    Surviving or Thriving: A Conversation with Emily Adams

    Growing up in the Amish culture, Emily always questioned why her family and community lived differently. She always felt a little different growing up, not all that interested in the traditional roles of sewing, cooking and cleaning that Amish girls are taught to do. And yet, she always found herself wondering was there more to life out there? At 17, she found out, taking the decision to leave the culture and everything she had known her entire life. It was the bravest and scariest thing she ever did.

    In this episode, Emily and I talk about the mental strength that it took at 17 to question it all, leave the only family and world she knew for uncertainty. She reflects on how her ability to believe in herself when no one else believed in her became the thing she could always rely on. Navigating an abusive marriage, becoming a single mom, putting herself through school, landing a job in the corproate automotive industry were all faced by Emily head on, and she knew she could get through it because of that trust.

    Now, having left the corporate world to become a coach, speaker and writer, Emily reflects on how for the first time in her life she's found true happiness and feels like she is living her fullest life on purpose. We talk through her journey of surviving to what she now fully embraces is her THRIVE chapter.

    I know you'll love this conversation.
