21. Gaining Alignment In Your Business & Life For Empaths
Today's episode is with Emily Grass. Emily is a yoga educator that specializes in helping Empaths. She uses the tools of yoga to help Empaths trust their intuition, protect their energy, and sharpen their superpower, and does this through movement, meditation, and mindfulness training.
"If we don't learn how to disconnect, sometimes it can be overwhelming and leave us drained and leave us not wanting to leave the house or do anything." (5:00)
"A lot of us assume that other people can feel what we feel so we assume that they'll read our body language or they'll feel our energy when other people aren't empaths and they can't do that. So we really have this responsibility to tell people what we need." (8:15)
"It can feel really uncomfortable to set boundaries for that reason, it can feel selfish or you feel guilty like you're taking something away from someone else." (10:13)
"If you can't find the time to take care of yourself then you really need to think about that, and sit with that, and figure out how you can prioritize yourself and see that you are important and that you can't pour from an empty cup." 12:35

20. Navigating Miscarriage: My Story and How To Understand and Support Women
Today we’re going to talk about miscarriage. October is pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness month. My hope in this episode is to share my story and thoughts so that you can better understand what it’s like. We'll also talk about some advice on how to console those who have experienced the unfortunate loss of their child too early.
"Even though I have a beautiful baby girl already, seeing accounts online, new mamas or expecting mamas in person or out in the community just reminded me of what I lost."
"How could this have happened. How could my body have failed me like this- and not just failed me, but failed my baby."
"But the other half of me was terrified to get pregnant again because of the fear that I might have to suffer through something like this again. I almost feel like I’d just expect something to go wrong."
"But that’s just not true. We’re not alone and the more we talk about it, the less we’ll feel alone and the more people will understand and it won’t seem so taboo."

16. 3 Common Questions From Entrepreneurs
Welcome to ProprietHER, this is episode 16! Today, we’re going to go over the 3 questions I get asked the most. As I said, the women who have asked these questions range from people JUST starting out, to women who have been in business for years, and who you wouldn’t think have any questions, so there’s something here for you!
The first question I get is kind of a two fold question:
It’s about Pricing their business for profit, and getting people to purchase when they’re just starting out.
Before I to dive into pricing I want to make one very serious PSA:
There is a difference between your economic worth (what your skills and experience merit in the marketplace) and your personal worth.
If someone won’t pay your price, or a certain price that you ask, you cannot take it personally. It can be easy to get offended, to feel knocked down, and to think “well, they just don’t think I’m worth anything.” But listen here sister, this is not the case at all. Your personal worth has NOTHING to do with your economic worth.
I’ve also heard people say “charge what you’re worth.” and while that is a powerful message, it’s muddling the line between your economic worth and personal worth, and that’s not a line meant to be muddled. Your personal worth, has nothing to do with how successful you are in business. So whether you charge $100 for a service and someone else charges $10,000 for a service, you have the same personal worth no matter who you are, what you do, what you charge, or what you wear.
Pricing your product or service is tough stuff whether you’re starting or you’ve been in business for years. So let me start off by saying, if pricing terrifies you, you are not alone. I know I say “you’re not alone” so much on this podcast but it’s really true! I really want you to understand that all those feelings, hesitations, questions, and concerns that you have- THEY’RE SO NORMAL IN BUSINESS. Especially when it comes to pricing. We’re going to talk about pricing in two ways. First, for those just starting out, and second for those who are already in business because maybe you’re looking to raise your prices and you don't know how or are terrified.
Let’s tackle the newbies first. Now if you’re just starting your business. Like. Have an idea, a name, all that fun stuff but no experience or clients yet, I feel it is 100% important for you to do some work for free. I know I know. You probably didn’t see that coming. But hear me out. Word of mouth, and proof of your work like photos, reviews, etc is going to so important for your business. If you have NO customers, you need to get some STAT and if that means doing 5 free sessions, or making your craft for 5 people- do it.
When I knew I wanted to start my photography business, I asked EVERYONE if I could photograph them and I said it would be free just so I could build my portfolio because I knew that the portfolio, and the experience a family or couple would have with me, would help me gain the momentum I needed to start my business and get paying customers.
I understood I needed to establish my authority as a photographer by having clients, and even though those families and couples didn’t pay me, I loved on them SO HARD and all I asked for in return were reviews. I understood that to start getting paying clients, I needed MOMENTUM and sometimes in business, as was in my case, I had to CREATE my own momentum. When I posted pictures from my free sessions, other people on social media or who stumbled on my website didn’t KNOW they were free sessions. They just saw my photos and a raving review. BOOM. Done. Plus, the people I worked with, told OTHERS about me. BOOM done again.
Now after I gained some momentum with my free sessions, did I jump immediately up to a $500 session? Absol
