    Ep 70 | Human Design and Living Life Without Regrets with Guest Yvonne Chung

    In this episode, I have a conversation with guest, Yvonne Chung, about the ingredients to live life without regret and how human design can be a valuable tool for increasing self-awareness and living life in a way that increases energy, pleasure, and fulfillment in your life instead of draining it.

    Yvonne is a certified coach, self-love mentor, dream architect, and human design guide whose work lies at the intersection of the practical and the mystical, the research and the woo. With a focus on positive psychology and Human Design, she helps heart-led, soul-missioned leaders overcome self-doubt, master their energy, and create lives of meaning, deep fulfillment, and ease. Having faced her own mortality at 32 years old, her mission now is is to help as many people as she can live fearlessly so they can die without regrets.

    Ep. 69 | Game Changer Sneak Peak: The 3 Wellness Levels

    Ep. 69 | Game Changer Sneak Peak: The 3 Wellness Levels

    We’re doing something new today! Last month, I did a major update to my Game Changer and added an audio option to each lesson so that you have the option to listen to your daily 10-15 minutes lesson during your commute, while going for a walk, or while washing dishes or folding laundry instead of having to sit down and read. My goal is to make this journey as easy as possible for you. 
    Since I now have the audio, this is a glimpse of one of the first lessons in the Game Changer that teaches a key concept if you’re wanting to make healthy changes but keep promising yourself you’ll start tomorrow or if you’re making healthy changes but they feel hard and unsustainable. There are really 3 Wellness Levels, but our world acts like here are only 2 and both of those are pretty unappealing and uncomfortable. After listening to this episode, let me know which one sounds most familiar to you!

    P.s. Check out "Life Boost with Amelia" podcast Episode 57: Unleashing Your Inner Unstoppable Bad-Ass. Around minute 28 there's an exercise with a guided mental rehearsal/hypnosis to help you to start unchaining the things that have been holding you back.

    Ep. 68 | Recovering From Burnout with Guest Dr. Stacey Cordivano - The Whole Veterinarian

    Ep. 68 | Recovering From Burnout with Guest Dr. Stacey Cordivano - The Whole Veterinarian

    In this episode, Dr. Stacey Cordivano shares her story of experiencing and recovering from burnout. As a solo ambulatory equine veterinarian and mom with two kids under the age of 3, she knew something had to change when she found herself driving to the hospital to have her appendix out after cooking Thanksgiving dinner.  Just a couple of months earlier, she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease and experienced the emotional trauma of needing to wean her second child from nursing early. Despite making some changes, a year later she found herself asking, "What am I doing? Am I really making a difference?". That's when she started to discover personal development podcasts which introduced her to a whole new world that helped her start her journey of recovering from burnout.

    Now, in addition to being a practice owner, equine vet, and mother, she is the host of the podcast, The Whole Veterinarian, where she has conversations with out-of-the-box thinkers who share new ideas on ways veterinarians can add more joy to their life to feel whole again. In this episode, she shares tips that have helped her to recover from burnout and she shares her perspective as a practice owner for what helps to create a "unicorn veterinary hospital" - a hospital where employees feel lucky to work at their practice because they're supported, respected, and valued so that they can provide veterinary care in a way that feels good and still have energy left at the end of the day to be a human outside of vet med.

    Stacey is such a cool person, and I know you're going to get so much out of this conversation!

    A lot has happened since my last episode!

    Some of the things mentioned in this episode:
    The Game Changer
    The 6 Month Mentorship program

    Ep. 66 | Why Vet Med Has A High Burnout and Suicide Rate + What We Can Do About It

    Ep. 66 | Why Vet Med Has A High Burnout and Suicide Rate + What We Can Do About It

    Any time I tell someone outside of the veterinary profession about the high burnout and suicide rate, they're surprised. And that's totally understandable - from the outside being a vet seems like a really fun gig. We get to see puppies and kittens, after all! But there is a darker side of vet med that's important to talk about in order for it to change. Once someone learns about the high burnout and suicide rate, their next question is WHY. This podcast episode dives into the root issues of what leads to burnout in the veterinary profession AND discusses solutions to each of those including how veterinary professionals and pet owners can help to be a part of positive change.

    This episode is for animal lovers, pet owners, and veterinary professionals. Please share it to help raise awareness about what each of us can do to be a part of creating positive change.

    Ep. 65 | When Doing Big Scary Things Leads To Zero Regrets with Guest Hannah Knight

    Ep. 65 | When Doing Big Scary Things Leads To Zero Regrets with Guest Hannah Knight

    In the span of a few weeks, Hannah called off her engagement, moved out of the home she loved, packed up her Subaru, and went on a solo 6 week cross country road trip to hike in National Parks and to start living the life she wanted instead of continuing down the "easier" path everyone expected. 

    The week leading up to the trip she felt "so anxious...terrified". 6 weeks later as she finished her trip, she thought "This is 100% what I should have done. I regret nothing."
    Listen to the episode for all the details of how she found the courage to leave her safe and settled life to follow her heart and to start living the life she wanted, crazy stories from her trip, and her advice for anyone feeling stuck like she was.

    I'm so thrilled to introduce you to Hannah - the coolest person I know who also happens to be my sister. She has an incredible story and I know you'll find it inspiring!

So informative and supportive

Every time I listen to an episode, I come away with tons of new knowledge and a feeling of being supported but never judged. Amelia’s wealth of knowledge, paired with her articulate explanations, curiosity, and genuine empathy always gives my day a boost!
