    Episode 39: The Duality of Grief

    Episode 39: The Duality of Grief

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling this collective grief pulsing through our nation as of late. It’s so easy to get caught up in staying busy as a subconscious way to avoid the feelings. The fear of the grief, the sadness, the anger taking over, as if a sea at storm, ready to take out anyone and anything in its path is so real.

     

    I have been allowing the waves of grief to pulse, move through my body, and to be present with them. To welcome and honor them. To invite them to move in and through me to be released.After a session of grieving, I found myself thinking about the dichotomy of what it looks like to be so present with your deepest feelings and yet also hold extreme excitement, joy, and gratitude for the work that you are doing in the world. This is my reality, and the reality of so many of my coaching clients.And so, I sat down and recorded this bonus episode.
    Just for you.


    To remind you that you are uniquely you and this world needs what you have to offer. Just as you.


    With all your grief and anger present, too.Listen in. Pass it along to your friends.

     

    It's a good one.

    Episode 38: The Energetics of Arrival (and of the Journey)

    Episode 38: The Energetics of Arrival (and of the Journey)

    What if, my friend, you stopped thinking so much about the arrival?

     

    And more about the journey that gets you there?

     

    I know how it feels to focus on the arrival — but I also know how much better it feels to reframe the journey and revel in that instead. And, while it feels good — way better, in fact — it’s also so transformative and freeing and joyful, too.

     

    On today’s episode, I’m talking about how you can find that joy in the journey on the way to arrival. We’re going to dive into how you can reframe your experiences, how you can lean into your journey, and how you can celebrate each moment… not just the seemingly massive ones. Because, guess what? When you can reframe that journey, you can unfold magic and joy like you never even realized.

    Episode 37: The Rub: Grief and Gratitude

    Have you ever found yourself drowning in grief, or wondering how to wrestle with the strangeness of the human experience as heartbreaking news continues to unfold in the world?

    I couldn’t think of a better person to interview than my own doula, who helped me welcome my first baby into the world, and has seen, experienced and participated in countless life and death moments during her own lifetime. 


    Her perspective on grief and the rub of gratitude that’s found in the midst of deep grief is such an inspiration.

    Listen in if you’re ready for her inspiring, beautiful perspective.

    Episode 35: Add more touchpoints, increase your bookings

    Episode 35: Add more touchpoints, increase your bookings

    Today, I’m talking about something that’s absolutely essential to increasing your bookings: adding more touch points for potential clients to see along the way. See, touch points — or those little ways in which potential clients are interacting with your brand — are way more important than you might think.

     

    A lot of the photographers and creatives will send one pricing PDF guide to a potential client, and then hear crickets. I used to be the same, too! But, adding a few more touch points along the way is what will level up that area of your business and increase confidence from your clients and from you. This episode is the perfect short listen for streamlining that area of your business so that you can book more projects and clients that you’re proud of!

    Episode 34: Magical morning practice

    Episode 34: Magical morning practice

    On this episode of I Might Cry, I’m sharing the practice I’ve been implementing into my mornings lately for a life that feels equal parts intentional, mindful, and magical. The simple truth that makes life feel just a little easier: you get the chance to do a little reset every single day as the sun starts to sneak up into the sky, and you get the chance to live your life in a more intentional way, too. By taking that chance and really, truly approaching your mornings from that standpoint of renewal and gratitude, everything changes.

     

    Listen in for some ways to make those mornings of yours a sacred start to the day, and try to take the time to give yourself a little extra thanks, too — because you’re here, you woke up, and you have a brand new day in front of you, every single day. How lucky is that?
