    Transforming Challenges Into Creative Fuel

    Transforming Challenges Into Creative Fuel

    Chris Valdheims is an entrepreneur, writer, podcaster, and lawyer who is dedicated to helping creatives bring their visions to life.
    As a client of Chris’s innovative law firm, Counsel for Creators, I didn’t just learn about how to protect my intellectual property or navigate contracts, I learned how to stop worrying about the legal unknown and make informed decisions about the future of my business. 
    What’s really unique about Chris’s approach is that he doesn’t just understand creatives, he is a creative who is passionate about helping people who come from challenging or complicated circumstances to create freely and authentically by sharing their stories.
    In this episode we talk about how to break through the creative barriers of perfectionism and fear, how to turn challenging circumstances into creative fuel, and the journey of making creative decisions without being swayed by the influence of the external.

    In The Wright Mind

    In The Wright Mind

    Before I interviewed Chris Wright, I had the opportunity to learn about some of the pivotal moments that shaped his life, and when I discovered the depths of physical and psychological trauma he endured at a young age, the one question that came to mind was: “How did this guy survive?” 
    As the host of the In The Wright Mind Podcast, a mental health advocate, and a successful career in government sector sales, Chris is on a mission to help others rise above their mental health struggles and bring hope to those who feel stuck and alone. 
    In this interview we explore the power of mental health advocacy, finding gratitude for the dark moments, and what it really means to embrace the messy journey of being human.

    Through guided manifestation practice, coaching, and affirmation muzic, Monique’s work is about helping her clients to shift the negative paradigms in their lives and achieve their biggest goals.

    This ability to embrace the unknown and unforeseen outcomes has informed the journey of a courageous human being who was able to find forgiveness, gratitude and healing within the most traumatic chapter of her life. 
     
    In this episode, we explore how to successfully manifest in alignment with your highest self, how to remain grounded in your spiritual journey, and how to navigate through the darkness with kindness and clarity.

Personal Stories with Inspirational Themes

Ken Cervera is one of the most engaging, positive and thoughtful people you’ll ever meet and his personality shines through each episode as the host of the Own Your Truth podcast. In his interview series, he showcases voices from a variety of backgrounds, but the one constant is that Ken brings on folks who are living conscious, inspiring lives and have a unique story to share. In his solo episodes, Ken shares deeply about his personal struggles and how he’s found the strength to overcome them. Ken does a fantastic job highlighting the dichotomy of life — the highs and the lows, and how one can live their most authentic life by embracing both wholeheartedly. Highly recommended listening!
