    Episode 50: Annabel Lukins from Cloud 9 Adventures

    Episode 50: Annabel Lukins from Cloud 9 Adventures

    In this episode, Dr. Leah and Taraleigh talk with Annabel Lukins from Cloud 9 Adventures about spirituality in daily life, sensuality in live music, and facing your fears. Annabel shares her current quest of finding a healthy balance of live music for optimal wellbeing, including letting go of FOMO and leaning into JOMO (the joy of missing out). For the "Daily Jam" Dr. Leah expands on why working with your thoughts to move through fear can be so powerful. Taraleigh breaks it down into easy manageable steps for the “Daily Jam.” 
    Standing tall at a massive 5-feet, this little wonder's infectious enthusiasm charms artists and fans alike. Annabel has been with Cloud 9 Adventures, producers of international live music events, since 2003 and can be found welcoming guests during a toast on stage, dancing through the crowd, and flying like a hummingbird behind the scenes making things happen. When she’s not galivanting around the Caribbean on Jam Cruise, Panic en la Playa and other destination concert events or working at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, she’s trail running or hiking with her golden retriever, skiing at Mary Jane and Eldora trying to get her 10-year old daughter and husband (who snowboards, let’s not judge him) to keep up with her, or seeing as much live music as possible. Annabel makes the best of this short time on earth and is beyond grateful for such a beautiful life.

    Episode 49: Money Grooves with Berkeley Ramsbottom

    Episode 49: Money Grooves with Berkeley Ramsbottom

    In this episode, Dr. Leah and Taraleigh talk with financial coach Berkeley Ramsbottom about how to be financially responsible while seeing as much live music as possible. Berkeley shares how her approach differs from other financial experts, who are going to tell you to forgo concerts because they’re frivolous. As if! She lets listeners in on the tool that can change everything and guides you through an exercise to learn more about your spending patterns, or as she calls them, money grooves. Listeners will learn small steps to move forward in becoming financially savvy and a mindset shift that will change the way you relate to money. For the “Daily Jam” Taraleigh encourages listeners to take on Berkeley’s money mindset to improve their financial health. Dr. Leah follows that up with information on why changing your mindset can improve other areas of your life for the “Did you Know.”
    Berkeley is the founder of Money Grooves, a financial literacy & coaching business. During her $20,000 debt payoff journey, Berkeley saw how learning about money transformed her life, but also how the personal finance space was fraught with judgment, misinformation, and overwhelm. She has dedicated her life to teaching others in our community how to crush debt, build wealth, and feel confident about money in a way that's relatable and fun. Her mission is to prove that you can build massive wealth while still hitting all the shows. Follow her on Instagram @moneygrooves.

    Episode 47: Let Your Heart Lead with Benjy Eisen

    Episode 47: Let Your Heart Lead with Benjy Eisen

    In this episode, Dr. Leah and Taraleigh sit down with music legend Benjy Eisen to hear how leading with heart has brought about all that he has accomplished in life so far. Benjy is a fabulous storyteller, and he treats listeners to tales of how he “accidentally” got started in his musical writing career, how he landed the gig as Bill Kreutzmann’s memoir writer and now manager, and why he passed up his first opportunity to write for Rolling Stone. Throughout the interview Benjy realizes it’s less about the power of thoughts and more about listening to his heart and following his passions. Find out how you can do the same through the “Did you Know,” where Dr. Leah shares the three main components essential for manifestation. Then Taraleigh breaks down how to get started today in the “Daily Jam.”
    Benjy Eisen has written for Rolling Stone, Esquire, Relix and many other music publications. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he is currently finishing work on his first novel, Oysterland. He is the co-author of Bil Kreutzmann’s memoir, Deal, and now his manager for Billy and the Kids. He is also head writer at Undermine, another Osiris podcast.
