    SOULisode: Power of the Pause

    SOULisode: Power of the Pause

    SOUL FAM, this is big news! Whenever we find ourselves so wrapped in the things we’re trying to do, we can lose sight of the meaning of why we did it in the first place. It’s in those moments that the most important thing we can do is to take a pause, reflect, and ask powerful questions.

    How am I showing up? What’s keeping me from being the realest version of myself? What do I really want and who do I get to become in the process of it all?

    This is at the heart of what I’m sharing today on the podcast. It’s an emotional 30-minute solo episode fueled by a recent epiphany after six months of struggle. I get real about the epiphany, the expansiveness I’m being called into, and why I’m embracing the power of the pause.

    Everything We Learned about Hope is Bullsh*t with Catherine Hammond

    Everything We Learned about Hope is Bullsh*t with Catherine Hammond

    Happy New Year! Welcome to 2022, the year of the REBELution! This is the year that we’re rebelling for rewriting our own script of success. The last two years have been a total shit show and now it’s time to take what we’ve learned as an opportunity to get clear on what matters most!

    I wanted to start this year with a conversation about HOPE. Now I’m not talking about what the movies tell us or even what the dictionaries have to say about it. My dear friend Catherine Hammond is here to flip the entire meaning of hope on its head and serve us up a fresh perspective. She even challenges how Brené Brown (GASP!) explains hope in her new book Atlas of the Heart.

    Catherine is an award-winning estate planning attorney, public speaker, author, and life transition guide. As an attorney, she helps people plan for and walk through difficult seasons in life, including chronic illness, disability and death. As a transformational coach, she leads people into living more fully, bravely, and beautifully. The heart-wrenching experience of her mother’s journey with Alzheimer’s Disease, beginning when Catherine was still a teenager, inspired her to spend her life helping others navigate life’s challenges. Catherine is currently writing her second book entitled Hope(less).

    SOULisode: Claiming 2022 and Rebelling for YOU

    We made it!! At the end of 2021, I want to share with you some things that I haven’t been fully transparent with. This past year has been a struggle and I feel like I’ve lost my way. When I go off course, I use these 5 questions to pull me back. I call these 5 questions the Rebel Round up and they get really juicy!

    I’m committing to showing up fully in 2022 and beyond! Will you join me?

    The Freedom of (Finally) Choosing Me with Kelli T Moore

    The Freedom of (Finally) Choosing Me with Kelli T Moore

    Imagine the delicious freedom of never abandoning yourself again. Never choosing the approval and validation of others in order to feel enough. Never valuing the opinions of others over the knowing of your truth. Never dismissing — or distracting from — your own desires and feelings. Never being afraid of being alone with yourself.

    That’s exactly what Kelli Moore chose when chronic illness, sexual harassment, and abortion forced a profound realization that living for everyone else meant never truly living for herself. Processing that pain and anger meant coming to terms with every single aspect of how she really wanted to be living her life. And then consciously — and courageously — creating it from the ground up.

    Today’s Rebel Souls podcast conversation is the intimate story of how Kelli finally chose herself. How she let go of the wrong job, the wrong guy, the wrong city, the wrong narratives, and the wrong goals, in service of her (scary AF) truth.

    The Inner Game: Untaught Essentials of Leadership with Jeremy Hunter

    The Inner Game: Untaught Essentials of Leadership with Jeremy Hunter

    There’s nothing like a cosmic kick in the ass to remind us of what’s most important. Suddenly the decision to stop giving our precious energy and attention to things that just don’t matter becomes a no-brainer. Full stop.

    But why do we wait to reclaim our agency until we’re face-to-face with our own mortality? And what impact is this really having on the quality of our life and leadership? (Spoiler alert: IT’S MASSIVE.)

    Today’s Rebel Souls conversation with Jeremy Hunter is a wake-up call for us all. Thirty years ago he was diagnosed with a terminal illness and told he had five years to live. That news turned his world — and approach to life — inside-out. Literally. He chose to face his fears, train his mind, and navigate his experience internally. His journey exposed the profound realization that quality of attention is quality of life. (Mind officially blown.)

    Making Midlife Sexy Again with Dr. Sarah Milken

    Making Midlife Sexy Again with Dr. Sarah Milken

    Hello Soul Fam!! WOW, today’s conversation is such a wild ride. I had the incredible opportunity to talk to Dr. Sarah Milken and she gave us the truth we all need to hear. After going through different seasons in her life and coming to a point of “now what?” she decided it was time to recreate herself. That led to the creation of her podcast, The Flexible Neurotic which is focuses on normalizing and inspiring self-reinvention in the second half of life.

    Dr. Sarah gets into her story of how she grabbed her “golden shit shovel” to dig deep and share all the things around normalizing the shit that comes up with midlife. Calling it her midlife remix, she has an incredible story about recreating herself at 46 years old that we all need to hear. It truly takes courage to reclaim our truth and purpose and it’s also the most rewarding. it’s time to live midlife on our own terms.
