As women we're taught to believe that our worth is in direct proportion to whether or not we're acceptable to others.

I've spent the last decade traveling the globe talking to women facing different types of trauma.  I come to believe that no matter what it is that we're experiencing, we are all playing it small. 

This podcast is my rallying cry for us to step into our power and stop living within the bounds of what society deems acceptable. You'll hear practical advice to step into your power and unapologetically live your purpose.

    The Spare Me Your Thanks and Go Put on Your F*****g Mask Manifesto

    The Spare Me Your Thanks and Go Put on Your F*****g Mask Manifesto

    My guest this week has asked to remain anonymous. Why?  

    Because she's scared of the blowback that might come from what she has to say. 

    She's a health care worker. And for the past few months, she's grown increasingly angry with "thank you for your service" messages health care workers are getting...

    ...not because she doesn't appreciate the thanks, but because it feels like very empty lip service.

    We're eager to get back to normal, which I really get (and am guilty of), but some health care workers are being asked by their employers to bite their tongues as they watch us blithely ignore safety recommendations and rising numbers.

    If you are grateful for the people working on the front lines, do them the service of listening to what some of them are experiencing.

    EVERYONE needs to hear this.

    Please. Do more than pay lip service to the people working to keep us safe.

    Listen to what they have to say.

    They didn't ask to risk their lives when they went into the health care field, but that is exactly what they are doing.

    For you. For your family.

    Pay them the respect they deserve by doing more than saying "thanks."

    Hit play and then spread the word.

    The Live Life On Purpose Manifesto

    The Live Life On Purpose Manifesto

    Self-hate will never be the key to self-transformation. And yet, for many women, the mean girl in our heads is the loudest voice in our lives. 
    One of the people that has helped me turn down the volume on my own self-doubt and self-recrimination is health and mindset coach Sarah Kroger, creator and host of The Purpose Project podcast. 
    Despite approaching faith from very different angles, both Sarah and I have transformed our lives by tapping into the belief that we are on this planet for a purpose. We are not meant to bob along meaninglessly through our days, or--- worse--- shuffle through life accompanied by crushing self-doubt and self-hate. 
    Sarah and I talk about the practical, action-oriented steps we've taken to go from our "Before" to "After"...acknowledging that a lot of our happiness and success is rooted in finding peace with being a work ever in progress. We talk about how mindset and faith have carried us through marriage, miscarriage, motherhood and many struggles with our inner monologue mean girls.

    The (Self)Love and Money Manifesto

    The (Self)Love and Money Manifesto

    Good women don’t inconvenience people. They don’t impose on others. 

    Good women eat the cold chicken fingers left over from their kids’ plates, don’t speak up in bed, and work hard to save relationships with people who trample on their boundaries. 

    What the hell does any of this have to do with your relationship with money? EVERYTHING. 

    In this episode, high-ticket sales coach Paloma Lev joins me to talk about the connection between our worth and our wallets. We dig into the family relationships, societal messaging, and self-talk hangups that keep us small when it comes to making money, and come to the conclusion that the only way to step into your worth is to do the vulnerable work of addressing shame, pain, and fear so that we can start to live fully in our purpose.

    Bonus Episode: Sociopolitical Musings on Coming Out

    Bonus Episode: Sociopolitical Musings on Coming Out

    If we had a different type of society—-where who you love, who you’re attracted to, had no social, political, economic, or safety implications—- coming out wouldn’t be a thing. Feminists argue that the personal is political. The past few days since coming out publicly, I’ve been struck by the profound truth of this assertion. This shouldn’t have to be a thing. How much more joy would we have in our lives, in our world, if coming to terms with your sexuality didn’t even have to be a process? What would the world look like if this wasn’t a thing you had to come to terms with? How much more present could we be for the people we love, the work that we do, the communities we’re part of? This bonus episode digs into these questions, and delves a bit into my upbringing to give context to my story of wrestling with my sexuality.

    The Coming Out After Marriage Manifesto

    The Coming Out After Marriage Manifesto

    My guest Calina Plotky, Esquire and I excavate all of the social and interpersonal consequences of coming out after a straight marriage, and dig into some of the internal monologue that we each had along the path to living openly as members of the LGBTQ+ community. Calina’s TikTok, @GALawyer, gave me courage to be more open with who I am, and I hope this conversation offers reassurance and practical tips to any women struggling to live openly as their whole and authentic selves.

    The You Are Not What You Eat Manifesto

    The You Are Not What You Eat Manifesto

    In this second episode of Small No More, the Ex-Perfectionist Coach Kiki Athanas and I have one of the most raw and open conversations I’ve ever had about eating disorders. As someone who has struggled with my relationship with food, the scale and my reflection in the mirror from age 4, I’m so grateful to get to share this conversation with you. I know just how much healing women have ahead of them to find a loving and self-honoring relationship with food and our bodies, and I hope you hear hope in what we share. Please note that this episode contains explicit discussions of binging and body dysmorphia that may be triggering.

A Must Listen

One of the only shows dedicated to building up women from a person who has repeatedly built herself up after leaving hard situations. Every week the talented Dr. Elizabeth Digi DuBois talks about how the past, present and future are in your control. There is not a topic that is not covered and disseminated. She examines the threats that stop you from freeing yourself. She does this with the element of transparency from her own past and current experiences. There are no hidden agendas in this podcast. The title speaks to the message and goal. Dr. DuBois with great guests, humor, intrigue and authority delivers on her promise of helping you feel Small No More.
