    #69 - How to Make Miracles

    Sometimes a miracle is actually just science, and when we figure that out we can create it again and again and again. Join me on the wild ride to figuring out how to do this, and also I update you on what the hell I’ve been doing with my life for the last year. You’re welcome.

    — About how our emotions effect DNA which effects the physical world 
    — How to master the law of attraction based on science 
    — What Shereen has been doing with her life for the past year

    — Why Happiness is actually a prayer that will inevitably make the world a better place (so no, focusing on your happiness isn’t selfish) 
     
    Coaching Questions & Thoughts:   
    Where in your life are you talking yourself out of following your bliss? 
    What do you need to do right now to allow more joy in?

    #68 - Get Paid To Be Yourself With Mia LaMotte

    #68 - Get Paid To Be Yourself With Mia LaMotte

    This week I have image consultant, transformation coach, and personal brand strategist Mia LaMotte on the podcast to geek out about branding and her company Brand Disruptors. For years, Mia has been giving people permission to be themselves instead of trying to fit into someone else’s box. And now, she’s teaching us how to express ourselves authentically online and in real life. 
    In this episode, you will hear:
    The importance of not changing yourself for the sake of having an “appropriate” or “professional” brand How your perception of yourself directly influences what other people think of you How to break out of the proper lady, good girl box that so many women are taught to fit into That there’s no wrong way to represent your brand when you’re true to yourself And her top tip for standing out amongst the crowd and attracting the right people to your message Coaching Questions & Thoughts:  
    What particular boxes have you been trying to fit into? What labels have you been taught to wear that don’t exactly align with who you are?
    Next time you’re thinking about showing up in a certain way, ask yourself: is this something I like or am I doing it because it’s something that would be less controversial?
    Who are your two archetypal people who — when combined — best describe who you are and what you bring to the table? For example, I like to describe myself as Whitney Cummings meets Tony Robbins.
    How much permission are you giving yourself to just be yourself? In what ways are you not showing up authentically?
    Quotes:
    “We all have a brand, whether we curate it or not.” - Mia LaMotte
    “It's really about leaning more into who you are instead of trying to be somebody that you're not.” - Mia LaMotte
    “What we think about ourselves actually shows on the outside.” - Mia LaMotte
    “There’s really no better personal growth program than to build a brand and become an entrepreneur.” - Shereen Thor
    “When we stop growing, we’re dead.” - Mia LaMotte

    #67 - Do You Have Skin In The Game?

    #67 - Do You Have Skin In The Game?

    This week, I’m going on a rant y'all. As a coach, I occasionally work with people who say they want to change their lives but don’t do what it takes actually to make it happen. Why? Because they don’t have enough skin in the game.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    What it really means to have skin in the game Why it’s insanely necessary to have a high level of commitment to your life and your dreams The soulful, deep AF reason why coaching and personal development tools can be expensive What happens when your commitment level is low Coaching Questions & Thoughts: 
    Where in your life are you passive? Complaining about your circumstances without doing anything to change them?
    What is one action you can do today that will move the needle forward towards your dreams?
    Quotes:
    “You have to have a high level of commitment to your dreams.” - Shereen Thor

    #66 — How To Thrive Without Social Media with Alexandra Franzen

    #66 — How To Thrive Without Social Media with Alexandra Franzen

    This week I have writer, consultant, entrepreneur, and creative mermaid, Alexandra Franzen on the podcast to dish a life without social media and how to live a life that’s true to you. After quitting her job in public radio 11 years ago, Alexandra started working as a self-employed writer. Now she’s written articles for Time and Forbes, published six books, and teaches courses on writing, publishing, marketing, and getting things done from her beautiful home in Hawaii.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    The story of how a summer hiatus from Twitter led to her giving up social media altogether Why being uncomfortable and brave are vital for surviving those first few years as an entrepreneur How experimenting with life has helped her forge her own path What it really takes to write a good book And her #1 tip for book writing that will make the whole project less overwhelming Coaching Questions & Thoughts:  
    What is your relationship to social media? Do you feel like it’s a tool you use for creativity and connection, or is it more of a habitual distraction?
    Do you like the person you’re becoming when you use social media?
    If not, what’s a small, non-committal hiatus you could take that would give you the space to see who you are without it?
    What’s a hobby or obsession that you keep saying no to? Could you give yourself permission to try it and see what happens?
    Quotes:
    “After that initial withdrawal, what I noticed was just a feeling of quiet and so much space in my brain.” — Alexandra Franzen
    “Nothing is forever, and life is full of surprises.” — Alexandra Franzen
    “It was uncomfortable at first because I had all those feelings, ‘I don't want to bother people.’ ‘I don't want to sound desperate. All the things — but it was actually beautiful how wrong I was.” — Alexandra Franzen
    “Doing that gave me such a sense of courage because I felt like, ‘if I can fly a helicopter, I can finish this essay and submitted by the deadline.’” — Alexandra Franzen
    “Sometimes we have certain hobbies or obsessions or passions that come in for a brief time to teach you a lesson or to shape who you are to help you become stronger and grow.” — Alexandra Franzen

    #65 - The Plight Of The Creative Type

    #65 - The Plight Of The Creative Type

    As creatives, we naturally have a lot of interests — and it’s easy for us to get distracted by a shiny new one. Constantly wanting to chase multiple things at once leaves many of us feeling lost and uncertain about what the heck it is we’re supposed to do. This week I’m talking about the power of allowing change to happen and how to give yourself permission to evolve into the next phase of you.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    Why creative types so often feel lost (and why it’s not necessarily a bad thing) How getting bogged down by the shame that comes with wanting to change isn’t helpful The science behind learning and how it makes you happier What happens when you allow yourself to change and enjoy the freakin’ ride baby Coaching Questions & Thoughts:  
    If you’re currently in the reshuffling phase of life, what feelings are coming up for you? Anxiety? Fear? Shame?
    Why do you feel like it’s not okay for you to evolve?
    What would happen if, instead of beating yourself up, you gave yourself permission to change and allowed it to happen?
    Quotes:
    “I believe every creative type, at least quarterly or twice a year, feels lost.” - Shereen Thor
    “You’re not confused. You’re just a human being. And guess what? Human beings evolve.” - Shereen Thor
    “You get to be all of who you are, whatever that looks like.” - Shereen Thor

    #63 - Is 2021 Your Hinge Year?

    #63 - Is 2021 Your Hinge Year?

    This week, I’m checking in after a brief hiatus and a WILD start to 2021, which a lot of people are labeling a “hinge year.” Tune in to learn what that means and how you can use this collective feeling of restlessness to reignite your dreams and go after what you truly want.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    What a hinge year is (and how to use it to your advantage) How the death of a longtime client has made me shift how I play the game of life The importance of honoring your most irrational desires What jealousy and envy can teach us about what we want How being your authentic self is not only better for you, but everyone around you And what big, crazy and totally irrational dream I am chasing during this hinge year Coaching Questions & Thoughts:
    How can you channel this feeling of restlessness and global uncertainty into something positive? Is there something in your life you’ve been wanting to shift?
    When was the last time you felt really jealous of someone? Was that experience in any way a sign of something you truly want?
    What irrational desire are you holding back? What illogical choices do you want to make but haven’t allowed yourself to? What little step could you take today to make it a reality?
    What is one irrational dream that you can chase to make 2021 a hinge year to remember?

    Quotes:
    “The parts of me that make me feel the most alive are the parts of me that make no sense.” — Shereen Thor
    “Honor your irrational impulses. Honor your illogical desires. It’s okay.” — Shereen Thor
    “Just be who you actually are. They will be far more blessed by who you truly are than whatever weird, contorted puppet-ass version you might be trying to present.” — Shereen Thor
    “Please be the truth of you who actually are, not what you think you should be for other people.” — Shereen Thor

Fun and real ❤️

I love how Shereen is just herself. She’s fun, she laughs loud, and she is just real. Her guests have been so awesome lately. This podcast makes me feel like I can put content out there myself and just be me. I saw her originally on wealth power and influence, another rad podcast, and I’m glad I did!

The real deal

Shereen tells you how it is. No sugar coat, no filter, just the truth. The reality of world is far from perfect and knowing how people really break the mold is what she brings to the show.
