    Jon Ingram of LOAM on overcoming Childhood Trauma and Abuse

    Jon Ingram of LOAM on overcoming Childhood Trauma and Abuse

    It's been a minute. We're battling a pandemic, everyone being sick, and you know life. I'm back and have a ton of great podcast content coming your way! 

    This week I'm joined by Jon Ingram, a Seattle based musician from the band LOAM.  Jon has trauma. Jon has disorders. Jon has his demons, as do we all. With Jon's journey though, he is the story we often don't hear. He was abused. As a child. As a man. We rarely get to hear from the males who are abused. We get to from Jon. I'm really honored to hold space for Jon and his story and how it's shaped him today. 

    Often people who endured childhood trauma and abuse develop disorders and/or chronic illness later in life and getting those things taken care of or diagnosed can feel impossible. You aren't alone if this is you. You are worthy and loved if this is you. Therapy, medication, intervention (medical), good relationships, support, etc can all help.

    How to Take a Social Media Break With Michelle Jackson of Michelle is Money Hungry

    How to Take a Social Media Break With Michelle Jackson of Michelle is Money Hungry

    When was the last time you took a break from social media? 

    For me, it was just a few months ago. I detached for a month and it helped me get my creative juices flowing again and allowed me to prioritize the things in life I had been neglecting. 

    Why isn't taking a break from social media something that is more widely discussed? Why isn't it a part of our routine like going on a vacation is? 

    We are only aware of taking a break when using social media starts to feel bad. Why are we letting ourselves feel that way before we decide to take a break? 

    What if instead, we schedule regular breaks from social media? How much better would our life be if we did that? 

    In this week's episode, that's exactly what we're going to talk about and explain HOW you can do it too. My guest this week is Michelle Jackson from Michelle is Money Hungry. Michelle loves to have impactful financial conversations leading with empathy. She's paid off over $60000 in unsecured debt and has become an online entrepreneur. Stay around for conversations around finances, financial policy and fintech. Aside from money stuff, she's the best at taking a break from social media and that is a major reason why I've decided to have her on the show this week. 

    Learn more about Michelle by heading to her websites: 

    https://brandbuildinglab.com for conversations about building impactful online brands.
    https://michelleismoneyhungry.com for conversations on money and race.

    How Childhood Trauma Effects Your Life as an Adult With Expert Vanessa Rosage

    If you've been following me on TikTok, you know very well what could have caused your childhood trauma. 

    But, how does it affect us later in life–as adults? In far-reaching scary ways is my initial thought, but what if we're neurodivergent? 

    How does trauma as a whole affect kids with ADHD, who are autistic, have other issues that could affect their ability to cope? 

    Also, what the hell is happening to our bodies physically when we have prolonged exposure to trauma? Tune in this week to find out with our special guest–Vanessa Rosage! 

    This week we’re speaking with Vanessa Rosage, LPC. Vanessa has been a therapist for 14 years. Currently, she runs a private practice and works primarily with children, parents, families, couples, adolescents and young adults. During her time with her patients, she uses several tools to help each patient and has a foundational theoretical orientation that is rooted in interpersonal neurobiology, which aims to heal trauma, anxiety, fear and shame through the connection and relationship between people.

    F*** Instagram and the BS posting strategies we’re told to go for with Rachel Pereya

    Instagram is super annoying, right? And now, knowing that Facebook, owner of IG, isn't doing its job in removing hate speech, digital crimes, and has bolstered its algorithm to prioritize hate, it’s even less appealing than it already was. Am I right? In this episode, Rachel Pereya, a business operations specialist, joins me as we discuss the mental health aspects of creating content for a platform we hate.

    Should you air your dirty laundry on social media? With Dr. Cailin O'hara

    Should you air your dirty laundry on social media? With Dr. Cailin O'hara

    Here's the deal - we all have "dirty laundry" and we all want to talk about it...well, some of us.  For those of us who want to talk about the issues going on in our lives, where do we go if not to a friend or trusted person? We go online. 

    Airing your dirty laundry is code for sharing the shit you probably shouldn't online. But here's the thing, we live in a digital world where so many people do it and honestly; I think you should–dependent on how you do it. 

    This week Dr. Cailin and I are discussing this topic and give the true answer on whether you should share your chaos on social media and online. 

    Follow Dr. Cailin on Instagram and Facebook at @drcailinohara and check her out online at www.cailinohara.com.

    How to Stop Feeling Inferior When You Have a Small Marketing Budget

    How to Stop Feeling Inferior When You Have a Small Marketing Budget

    Marketing budget. It sounds like such an overly professional thing that should just be easy to understand right? For me, marketing budgets cause me so much anxiety. Mainly because I just suck at budgeting overall. But when I went into business school in 2017 I spent a lot of time building a marketing budget, understanding how they function in the grand scheme of a business, and how truly easy they are to implement and create.

    In this episode Sarah and Alli breakdown what marketing budgets are and how we can tell anxiety to take a hike.
