6. How to Prepare for Difficult Conversations
Are you conflict-averse? Do you go for days, weeks, or years avoiding difficult conversations you know you need to have?
Many smart, educated women struggle with difficult conversations, simply because they are in the habit of discounting their emotions and are afraid what the other person will do, think or say.
Here is an exercise adapted from bits and pieces of the work of Chris Voss, author of Never Split the Difference, Kasia Urbaniak, author of Unbound, a Woman's Guide to Power, and Master Coach Brooke Castillo of the Life Coach School. (If you want to go deeper with tools and teachings on negotiation and power dynamics, I encourage you to read the excellent source material from those three authors/teachers or sign up for my Power Bootcamp that starts in mid-January 2022.)
I massaged those fine teachers' methods into something that would work for my clients. I came up with this, designed specifically for conflict-avoidant feminine energy women.

5. How To Manifest: Meditation for Women
By now, you probably have heard quite a bit about manifestation, law of attraction, visualization and meditation.
Some of you aren't meditating as consistently as you'd like, and when you work on your manifestations doing this or that mindset tool or technique, you're not sure you see a benefit.
Or for some of you, meditation is already a daily habit and you think of yourself as a good manifester, but certain areas of life still seem blocked, like a last frontier.
If you're an otherwise high-achieving, successful woman puzzled by this, take heart.
Today's episode demystifies how to manifest, by breaking down what actually happens in our brains and in our lives when we are manifesting, according to The Model -- and lightly touching on science.
I'll also explain why high-achieving women often have a really hard time figuring out how to manifest.
And finally, today's episode also will convince you that meditation is key, and thought work or mindset work alone is not enough for you to manifest your desires.
Don't miss this one, because I share a powerful and personal manifestation story from my own life that I have never before widely shared, and the exciting knowledge that makes my manifestations even more powerful now.
4. How To Manage Difficult Emotions -- Even When You're "Too Emotional"
Are you tired of hearing that "women are too emotional?" Yet on the other hand, do you secretly wish that you could manage your own, powerful emotions better so that you can keep your cool?
This is understandable. For eons, women have been hearing that they are too emotional. And not too long ago, our foremothers fought hard to gain respect in historically male-dominated jobs like law, medicine, engineering, business, and executive leadership when few thought they could keep up.
The problem occurs when we suppress our emotions, and put enormous energy into pretending like things don't make us angry or sad, when in fact they do.
Aren't you tired of hearing that "women are too emotional?" But then so many of us chide ourselves for not being levelheaded enough, and we judge our strong feelings.
When we mansplain and gaslight ourselves that we shouldn't be so emotional, we often unintentionally create the very impressions that we do not want to create.
The truth is, our emotions are important, valuable, and wholly for us. When we believe this, and we have the tools to take better care of ourselves in the heat of the moment of an uncomfortable emotion, they become our powerful allies.
In this Episode, I invite you to stop internalizing these destructive messages that "women are too emotional," and I give you three powerful steps to manage difficult emotions so that you can show up the way you want without being fake.
3. The Myth of Positive Thinking - And the Secret to Radical Self-Awareness
Feel like "positive thinking" never seems to stick for you, because of the serious nature of your work or some insurmountable aspect of your personality?
It's because trying to "do positive thinking" actually does not work when treated as a "technique" or strategy. The essence of it is well-intentioned, and much of the spiritual and personal growth advice out there has a lot of value; indeed, positive thoughts will help you create desired results.
But most of what's out there misses the mark when it comes to what to do with the so-called "negative" thoughts and feelings human beings necessarily have. What do you do with those buggers, anyway?
Most of western culture would like us to think it's all happy-happy, joy-joy all the time. Look happy. Look busy. Don't let them see you sweat. If you have a bad day, maybe there's something wrong with you. Maybe God doesn't love you or you need a pill for that.
When you go deeper than the internet-meme inspirational-quote level of spirituality, you get to some really interesting stuff. Perhaps the best thing Abraham-Hicks teaches is the value of contrast -- the value of the full spectrum of experiences, both desired and not.
It's our negative thoughts that can help us manifest faster -- because we start where we really are, not the super-curated version of where we think we "should" be.
In this Episode, I share a powerful secret about the myth of positive thinking that is going to give you great relief. I'll give you full permission to wallow in your negative thoughts like a pig in the mud, but only so long as you go into it knowing that mud is fertile soil for creating what you really want. That's radical self-awareness, and in this Episode, I share why.

Game-changing info every female attorney needs to know
This podcast provides excellent insight and helps the listener understand why, as smart, capable, high-achieving women attorneys, we are fighting procrastination, self-doubt, indecision, and self-criticism. Episodes 6 (Why Your Emotions Matter as a Lawyer) and 16 (Do the Opposite of What Most Layers Do) have resonated with me the most so far. Understanding that it’s my thoughts that are driving my feelings/actions/results, and that it’s not “my fault” or some internal defect, AND that by recognizing and consciously shifting my thoughts, I can start to change my entire experience of life: game-changing. There’s this idea that attorneys should *not* have feelings/emotions, but stifling those feelings just builds the internal pressure until we end up with substance abuse problems or we explode and quit law or just accept being miserable. But the concept in this podcasts suggests that be *having* feelings (instead of resisting them) actually makes us better attorneys and gives us more control of our time and our success and our experience of life. Who knew?! I used to put control of my happiness in other ppl’s hands: “If my partner would help more, I could be happy.” “If I had that new software/tech device, or if I had the perfect office space, I could be productive.” “If my family would stop (doing everything family does), I wouldn’t doubt myself so much.” “If I could just lose weight, I could be confident.” “If my assistant wasn’t dealing with personal drama, I could focus on my work.” Now I’ve started to recognize those thought patterns, and I can interrupt them. Changing them sounds simple (and it is kinda simple), but it’s *not* easy. It doesn’t make life perfect and happy and carefree all the time. It doesn’t make brief-writing fun or bring joy to entering billable time (not yet, anyway), but realizing I’m not at the mercy of the whims of the world or other ppl’s opinions, and realizing that I can change the entire experience without anyone else changing a thing - that’s a tool everyone needs, but especially female attorneys. Just check it out.
“Who do you want to be?”
Love the focus on lawyers changing our thinking about our colleagues, judges, and situations we encounter to get the results we want. In the second episode, you ask “Who do you want to be?” Such a powerful question. Mindset is so important, and when we take responsibility for who we want to be and how we want to feel, we stop giving all our power away to others.
