    EP162: Find Clarity for Yourself & Your Business

    EP162: Find Clarity for Yourself & Your Business

    When we check in with ourselves we often uncover a sense of clarity about whatever is going on in our lives - emotionally, physically, and even for our businesses. I believe - and have experienced - that there is always clarity within. Accessing it is more about removing the obstacles than “creating” clarity.
    This week on the podcast Laura and I are diving into the topic of clarity and how to uncover it within ourselves. We talk about examining our patterns and habits and why it’s so important to understand how we may be blocking ourselves from finding clarity.
    We also discuss the fact that getting clarity is a journey - not a destination - and why we have to be willing to go through difficult, sometimes painful transformations if we want to get to the next level.

    EP161: Learn to Tap Into - and Trust - Your Intuition

    EP161: Learn to Tap Into - and Trust - Your Intuition

    Intuition can be a somewhat tricky topic to talk about in the world of business. The idea of understanding and listening to your inner voice doesn’t exactly gel with our culture’s super data-driven approach to work. Intuition has been written off as a tool for understanding ourselves, our motivations and our decisions, and women have often borne the brunt of this devaluing.
    Although we are taught to look to the external world for validation about what is right and true, intuition persists. It is the little voice in your head (or maybe your heart or your gut) that warns you sometimes, encourages you in others, and keeps you moving forward in hard times. 
    Laura and I wanted to do a deep dive into intuition this week because so many of us want to learn to trust ourselves again. We talk about some of the trauma that you may have around intuition if you struggle to trust your gut, and we offer some practical tips and suggestions for strengthening your connection with your inner voice.
    We also talk about some of the common mistakes people make when trying to tap into their intuition and why we think stillness is one of the hallmarks of your truest inner wisdom.

    EP160: Drawing On Your Inner Motivation & Momentum

    EP160: Drawing On Your Inner Motivation & Momentum

    Are you struggling to get motivated right now? If so, you are not the only one. It can be really difficult to find the drive, creativity and energy that we usually put into our work these days.
    I think part of this stems from the way our culture looks at motivation. We think it is something we have to work hard to drum up - it exists somewhere outside of us and we have to chase it down. 
    In this week’s podcast episode, Laura and I are talking about why we are all experiencing fluctuations in our motivation right now and how to deal with changes to your momentum in business. We also discuss some practical tips for getting in touch with your inner motivation, what the generalized stress we’re feeling is doing to our bodies and minds, and why now is the perfect time to practice self-compassion.

    EP159: Use a Feminine Lens to Unlock Your Full Potential

    EP159: Use a Feminine Lens to Unlock Your Full Potential

    What does it mean to operate from the feminine? What does it mean to you, specifically?
    I know I’ve talked about this on the podcast before, but this week Laura and I wanted to dive a bit more into how a feminine approach to our self-development and our consciousness can really make things shift. We really hit it off when we met in part because both of us wanted to bring more of a feminine lens to the world of business. Since then, we’ve both been working hard to elevate women’s voices and return the feminine lens to its rightful place in the world.
    A feminine lens is rooted in authenticity, connection, and the belief that your inner wisdom should shape the way you show up in the world. In this episode, Laura and I are digging deeper into the idea of the feminine versus masculine lens and how the two can complement each other.
    We also discuss the ways feminine approaches are ignored or downgraded, how using a feminine lens can help you save energy, and why bringing more feminine energy into your work and life will allow you to live in more alignment with your essential self.

    EP158: Interrupted Patterns are an Opportunity for Realignment

    EP158: Interrupted Patterns are an Opportunity for Realignment

    Things have been pretty shaken up for everyone lately. Laura and I have been thinking a lot about how patterns at every level have been interrupted recently - at the individual level, the family level, the communal level, and the global level. 
    All the upheaval has definitely been unsettling, but it also presents us with a big opportunity. While we are temporarily free from our usual daily loops, we have a chance to reflect on our “normal” routines and whether they have been serving us. 
    In today’s episode Laura and I are digging into the ways the coronavirus has interrupted our usual patterns and forced us to reflect on them. We talk about what happens when we reconsider our habits, why most people don’t question the things they do on a daily basis, and how we can use this time to explore creating a life that is more aligned with our own unique, natural rhythms.

    EP157: How to Integrate Our Collective Grief

    EP157: How to Integrate Our Collective Grief

    I don’t know about you, but there have been a lot of big emotions in our household lately. And not just our household, but our community, our country, our world as a whole. One of the biggest and scariest of those emotions, for many of us, is grief. 
    We are never really taught how to grieve or how to make room for grief in our lives. But right now we are all grieving something: the loss of our routine and security, the loss of a job, the loss of a loved one. And this grief doesn’t pick and choose who it affects; we are all feeling it, from the children to the elders. We are all in this boat together.
    Laura and I wanted to talk about the topic of grief today, specifically the collective grief we’re all experiencing currently. So in this episode we are talking a bit about how we are processing feelings of loss and sorrow in ourselves and our families and some of our experiences moving through grief in the past. 
    We also talk about some of the ways we try to distract ourselves from grief in our day-to-day lives and why those tactics might not be working right now. And we discuss how  our communities can respond in times like these and why human beings tend to band together when we face a common threat like a virus.

Refreshing take on business and what it takes to be successful

I absolutely love Sonya and Laura’s approach to business. Their ideas and strategies keep you accountable to your business, your clients, and yourself, but they always hold space for you to take care of yourself, too. I’ve learned so much from this show already!

True Divine Mature Feminine

I found this part 1 one episode clarifying and inspiring, addressing what it really means to understanding and living in the or with the Feminine. Let’s not treat it as a fad, or trend. But rather it is reconnecting with past cultures recognizing in big ways the the wisdom and reverence inherent in woman time, woman being. Brilliant.

Highly Recommend for Women in Business

This podcast makes me feel uncomfortably seen at times as if the hosts are speaking directly to me. (LOL) I really enjoy the segments that are split into different episodes covering a specific topic. The segments give me a chance to digest and think on then come back to and refine in the continuations. Go listen!
