    #54: Would I even be me if I didn't drop off the face of the earth at least twice? Hi, we're back on air baby!!!! Welcome to the newest season of Ironically Serious. We'll start this eppy off with a quick catch-up of where we left off. I get you up to speed on the updates you didn't come here for; i.e. engaged life, wedding planning, and the state of my mind. I share an embarrassing moment that includes a stranger and a cosmo at a bar in New York City and has occupied space in my brain since... You'll hear about the announcement of the newest Ironically Serious segment, and for the main course, I'm dropping a HUGE bomb in this episode: my new business venture. We’re evolving, and this transformation is not just mine, but ours to share. Missed you, mean it.

    Breath as Medicine ft. Kate Crawford

    Breath as Medicine ft. Kate Crawford

    #51: In today's episode, I have a profoundly honest and enlightening conversation about trauma, anxiety, and the power of healing through breath with breathwork expert Kate Crawford. Kate, of Korē Breathwork, blends her extensive scientific knowledge with a spiritual perspective to guide clients in understanding and processing their trauma. She shares her personal journey and how it led her to discover the transformative effects of breathwork. We talked about the connection between trauma, illness, chronic pain, and unexpressed emotions, and Kate provided invaluable insights into the body's communication and the role of breath in regulating the nervous system. If you're looking to discover and remember your true self, this episode is a must-listen.

    Mini EP: I Made a Ballsy Move

    Mini EP: I Made a Ballsy Move

    #49: Today's mini-episode is brought to you by Earn After Reading – my weekly unhinged newsletter where I get real and honest about life and the nitty-gritty of entrepreneurship.  In this 12-minute story, I share the ballsy move I recently made in my business. But before I do, I give you a quick backstory on my business and how it all started back in 2018. Spoiler alert: getting knocked up while working at a strip club isn't the most ideal situation. I share how I recently escaped from my first-ever business identity crisis which led me to take a leap and offer something I've never done before in my business. If you're a business owner looking for some encouragement to go after that thing you can't stop thinking about, this is for you.
