What My Niece's Love for "Chocolate Biscuits" Taught Me
Today’s episode is a short and sweet and a little anecdote about my niece Annabel and the lesson I took away from it.
I have shared with you my holiday tradition of making Macaroons for the family and then bringing them to Christmas. This year, because we didn’t go visit our family in person, I made macaroons for everyone and shipped them with their presents.
A couple of weeks ago, my niece, Annabel, told her mom she wanted to FaceTime with me and when she got me on the phone she said, “Auntie Emily, I really liked those chocolate biscuits. Can we have some more?”
What did this simple request teach me? What can it teach YOU about sharing your voice and stepping up to ask for what you want and need?

Your Permission Slip to Start Streaking
Do you ever find yourself falling short of the hopes and goals that you set for yourself? In today's episode, I chat with Jami and Jeffery Downs, co-authors of Streaking: The Simple Practice of Conscious, Consistent Actions that Create Life-Changing Results.
We talk about the practice of "streaking" (which contrary to common belief is not just running about naked). By implementing this methodology into your life, you can help move through self-doubt, complacency, and into a place of achievement and confidence.

What you can streak and how to decide what to streak
What the three golden rules are for streaking
Why streaking isn't just another way to start a habit or reach a goal

What to do When Someone Squelches Your Dream
In She Built This, we encourage you to not be scared of your big ideas and to chase your dreams, no matter how BIG they are! But... what do you do when someone decides to take your idea and tear it down in one way or another? What if someone calls your baby ugly!?
In this episode, I talk about:
- Why it's important to choose your inner circle wisely when it comes to sharing your ideas
- How you can take feedback as an opportunity to make your idea even better
- How to prepare your listener to understand your needs and goals PRIOR to sharing their feedback with you
- How you can use someone's doubting to create a list of why YOU CAN and SHOULD be building what you're building
- What I learned about what actually being vulnerable feels like
