    13. Designing the Life You Deserve and Desire with Self-Made Multimillionaire + Money Manifestation Queen, Amanda Frances

    Today we are speaking with Amanda Frances, self-made multimillionaire + money manifestation queen. 
    Amanda is known for creating online courses that teach women how to step into their worth and start designing the lives they deserve and desire. And it all started with a single moment of inspired guidance that she trusted and acted on. 
    Amanda's success did not happen over night, as she explains in this episode. She started at step one, teaching herself how to make a website over night and hanging flyers all over her hometown to get her first few clients. Nine years later, she now owns and runs a multi-million dollar business serving hundreds of thousands of clients all over the world. 
    She's as transparent and honest as it gets and doesn't serve an ounce of b******t in her content. I'm so thrilled to share her story and mission with you.

    12. Learning what lights you up and letting it lead with Lindsey Simcik, co-founder + co-host of the Almost 30 Podcast

    Today we are joined by the one and only Lindsey Simcik, co-host of the brilliant Almost 30 Podcast. Lindsey, along with her co-host Krista Williams, have built an empire around their podcast. Live events all over the world, an international community and millions of listeners. They started their show out of their closet as a way to explore the transition from their 20's to their 30's, and it has since grown into a massive resource for anyone looking to better themselves through any and all of life's inevitable transitions.  

    During our conversation, Lindsey gets real + raw about what it means to create and maintain a platform of this magnitude while also taking care of her own needs. That involves really learning how to tune into her body and trust her intuition. After listening to Lindsey share her story, I know you're not only going to feel that fire in your belly to chase after your own dream, but you're also going to realize the time to start is NOW.

    10. Protecting our energy with boundaries so we can show up as our best selves with Cassandra Eldridge of The Calm Collective

    10. Protecting our energy with boundaries so we can show up as our best selves with Cassandra Eldridge of The Calm Collective

    Today we are speaking to Cassandra Eldridge, the beautiful mind behind The Calm Collective, a lifestyle blog and podcast dedicated to simplicity and creating your best life through wellness and mindful living. 

    In today's conversation, we get into all sorts of things, but we continue finding our way back to the idea of boundaries and why they are so important in creating and living your best life. We also discuss how social media fits into a mindful and minimalist lifestyle. Social media is the antithesis of minimalism. Its noise and flash and clutter. I am asking Cassandra how she manages to coexist with this technology in a way that is harmonious with her minimalist lifestyle.

    What I love most about Cassandra and this conversation, in particular, is that everything we discuss is so actionable. You can start implementing each idea into your routine today. And that type of inspired action is exactly what we all need right now as we embark on this new year and a new decade. 

    ~

    Talking Points:


    Tapping in our worth and setting boundaries, because we can't have one without the other
    Developing and setting firm boundaries based on our own individual needs
    Getting a clear vision as to what our needs are so we can start building a lifestyle to suit them 
    Protecting our energy and boundaries by doing the oftentimes very difficult thing of saying NO or removing ourselves from toxic situations and relationships
    Practicing flexibility within the confines of our boundaries through life's inevitable transitions, shifts, and changes
    Going with the flow and non-attachment
    Making intentional choices regarding all aspects of life (purchases, opportunities, relationships, etc.)

    09. Trusting your gut, honing your craft and staying true to yourself in a world of fakes and filters with actor, writer & content creator Courtney Dlugos

    I can't say enough good things about today's guest. She's talented, hilarious, brilliant, gorgeous. She may very well be an alien from another planet.

    Today I am sharing a candid conversation with Courntey Dlugos. Courtney is an actor, writer, and content creator out in LA. We get into everything in this episode. From her childhood in West Virginia to pursue her career, to managing the pressures of Hollywood. She's such a real, down to earth chick and I can't f****g wait for you to hear from her.

    Some things we cover:


    Honoring your talent
    Trusting your gut
    Honing your craft
    Practicing authenticity
    Putting yourself out there
    Doing YOU
    Cultivating real connections

    This is one of my favorite episodes so far! I was pretty into Courtney before we spoke, but once we got done with our conversation I was completely sprung on this girl. I know you will be, too. 

    Press play + enjoy!

    Remember to subscribe so you never miss an episode and rate + review so that other people can find our show :)

    08. Showing up online, creating community and telling the truth with humor writer Julie Burton

    Today's guest is one of my favorite people on the internet, the hilarious Julie Burton. Julie is a mom, humor writer and truth-teller.

Join us as we get to know each other and have a frank discussion about showing up on the internet and creating community. Julie's advice: you've got to be relatable, you've got to be honest, and you've got to be brave.
