    An inside look at what it really takes to write your first book

    An inside look at what it really takes to write your first book

    Supposedly, 81% of Americans — around 228 million people! — think they should have a book in them, and, that they should write one.
    But what does it take, really, to become one of the few people who actually do it?
    Nikki Groom is a brand strategist, the host of the Movement Makers podcast, and the author of A Power of Your Own: How to Awaken Your Potential, Experiment With Purpose, And Do Work That Matters. Having worked together in a coaching capacity, Nikki and Dave go behind the scenes to recount her book's slow formulation—and, how the expectation of what it means to write a book oftentimes differs in reality.
    Hailed as “a force of nature” and “a rising superstar”, Nikki is on a mission to help women entrepreneurs recognize their worthiness, own their power, and amplify their impact—without checking their integrity at the door. She has been involved in dozens of projects and partnerships that focus on empowering women in business.

    Not every story is ours to tell—should we tell them, anyway?

    Not every story is ours to tell—should we tell them, anyway?

    For everyday activists and socially-conscious advocates of change, storytelling offers a gateway for helping to bring people together and possibly change hearts and minds. And yet, questions arise: When is or isn't a story our own to tell?
    Joseph C. Ewoodzie Jr. is the Vann Associate Professor of Racial Justice at Davidson College and the author of Getting Something to Eat in Jackson: Race, Class, and Food In the American South, a vivid portrait of African American life in today’s urban South through the lens of food, its history, and access to it.
    For two weeks in 2011, 11 months in 2012, and 3 months in 2016, Joseph lived as an unhoused person, worked in a Black-owned BBQ restaurant, shadow low-income families just trying to get by, and sat at fine-dining tables with some of Jackon’s most well-off families to research people and their stories from in-depth, firsthand experience. As a cultural sociologist, Joseph says that principles of the research method called "ethnography" can help all of us navigate ethical dilemmas of storytelling, including how to tell stories more honestly, respectfully, and humbly.
    He says we live in a world that needs as many stories, and as much representation, as possible.

    In 2023, use your checklist to prioritize what you care about the most

    Checklists are ubiquitous in our busy, overwhelmed lives. But what if checklists helped us to prioritize more than obligations, like joys, pleasures, and self-care?
    Alexandra Franzen is a Hawaii-based best-selling author of 6 books, a writing teacher, an entrepreneur, and the co-founder of Get It Done, a woman-owned company that helps clients create beautiful books in all genres. She joins us to discuss The Checklist Book: Set Realistic Goals, Celebrate Tiny Wins, Reduce Stress and Overwhelm, and Feel Calmer Every Day, including how checklists can help change our lives for the better, manage stress, and prioritize joy in our lives.

    Best of 2022: In a world that tells you to care less, dare to care even more

    Best of 2022: In a world that tells you to care less, dare to care even more

    In our most listened-to episode of 2022, author Kat Vellos (KatVellos.com) told us she is tired of hearing people on social media tell this one story: "I'm out of f**ks to give!"
    While the declaration started out as good-humored—a way to jest and say, "I'm just so over it!"—today, she says, the story behind the saying now reeks of toxic individuality. In a world that needs more caring—and, in which people who care about bad outcomes are doing a lot of harm—Kat encourages us to take pride in caring, even more. But how do we care even more when it feels so hard to keep caring?
    Kat Vellos is an author, speaker, facilitator, researcher, and former user experience designer who is on a mission to help people to experience greater authentic connections with each other, and healthy friendships in their personal lives. 
    She is the author of two books, We Should Get Together: The Secret to Cultivating Better Friendships and Connected from Afar: A Guide for Staying Close When You’re Far Away. Her words and work have been seen across TEDx, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fast Company, and dozens of other outlets.

    Can lifestyle design help us to heal our relationships to ourselves?

    Can lifestyle design help us to heal our relationships to ourselves?

    For some time, lifestyle design was commodified by social media influencers for its envy-stirring appeal. But can lifestyle design actually help us get back into healthy and healing relationships to ourselves?
    Gemma Stone is a registered psychologist, neuroscientist, executive coach, speaker, and author based in Calgary, Canada. Gemma bridges lifestyle design concepts and practices into her clinical practice to help clients remember that they possess the power of choice, especially when they are feeling down, victimized, or like they are not living lives of their own making. 
    In this interview with host Dave Ursillo, Gemma shares how her early personal experiences with trauma led her to study psychology, what overcompensating for a healing journey looks like (and what’s wrong with over-compensating), and how lifestyle design helped her to finally bring true balance to her healing and wellness journey, so she could support others in doing the same.
    This interview was originally recorded in September 2020.

Monday inspiration

My Monday inspiration is back! Dave is always insightful and captivating. The only thing I didn’t like was that he said he was a “former” yoga instructor 😉
