    Conduct a Relationship Audit with Ximena Vengoechea

    Ximena Vengoechea is a user researcher, writer, and illustrator whose work on personal and professional development has been published in Inc., The Washington post, Newsweek, and Huffington Post. She is the author of the new book, Listen Like You Mean it: Reclaiming the Lost Art of True Connection. Ximena is best known for her project The Life Audit.

    Cosmic Health—Why Your Wound is Your Wisdom with Jennifer Racioppi

    Cosmic Health—Why Your Wound is Your Wisdom with Jennifer Racioppi

    What’s your sun, moon, and rising? That’s the shorthand for our inner blueprint, created the moment each of us took our first breath, based on where the planets were in the sky. In this conversation, we’re talking about her brand new book Cosmic Health: Unlock Your Healing Magic with Astrology, Positive Psychology, and Integrative Wellness.
    Jennifer Racioppi is a certified Duke Integrative Medicine Health Coach, a holistic health counselor, a Positive Psychology coach, and an astrologer. In fact, she is the first person who ever gave me a natal chart reading, which sparked my own great love for—and deep dive into—astrology!

    Big Things Brewing + the Power of Tiny Sprints

    Big Things Brewing + the Power of Tiny Sprints

    Hi Friends! I’m back with another “staycation” solo episode on what I’ve been up to. It’s a quick take on systems to support seasons of retreat for creativity and rest, my favorite books of the year so far, and a peek into my forthcoming projects.
    Key questions:
    What are you ready to let go of? How can you say no to “good” to say yes to what’s next?
    For your new projects, ask: Who Not How? (Strategic Coach, Impact Filter PDF)
    How can you design systems to support cyclical work? (Check out Stefan Sagmeister’s TEDx Talk on 7-year sabbaticals)
    📘 Books Mentioned: Pivot, Wintering, Who Not How, Clockwork, The Power of Full Engagement

Delia Folk ,

Love Jenny’s motto!

Thanks for creating such an awesome & informative show :)

Milena Rangelov ,

A breath of fresh air in business podcasts. 💜

I love this podcast and Jenny’s unique energy and perspective. To me, it’s a breath of fresh air among the regular, cookie-cutter business podcast, because of topics, variety of formats, a blend of practical tips and spiritual strategies... it’s hard to describe but that’s only because it’s so unique.

Zing Collaborative ,

Phenomenal Podcast

Pivot is a joy to listen to, in addition to being informative and engaging. Jenny is so generous in what and how she shares information, and this podcast is a gift! Additionally, Jenny is so down to earth and authentic that tuning in feels like sitting down for coffee with a dear friend. Thank you, Jenny, for this offering.
