Worth every minute
I’ve never gotten such straight forward, applicable advice on anything everything life related thru just a podcast. Couldn’t recommend this pod more!!!
Absolutely love this podcast
I absolutely identify with Kara and her teachings, I’ve recommended this podcast to multiple friends who also now love it. Quite frankly, I’ve worked in CBT before, as well as Buddhist principles - so this work 100% resonates. I’ve already started applying the work to my life with positive results. To the reviewers who mention she tries to sell her services in the podcasts and don’t like that…well, how is she supposed to make a living on a free podcast? She is doing amazing work, providing life-changing information free in this podcast. But yeah, she has other programs that she charges for - she’s a life coach and her services aren’t free. I’m not sure why anyone would want to deny her an opportunity to advertise her paid services on her free podcast, especially when the people listening are the ones who may benefit the most from her services. But, whatever. We’re all free to think whatever we want - which is a main premise of her work. The podcast is not primarily her “selling” anything - she really only mentions it at the end. This stuff is deep work, it takes a lot of practice, listening to a podcast is going to be helpful - but to really change your life, it’s going to take work. Therapists aren’t free. Prescription antidepressants aren’t free. Anti-anxiety drugs aren’t free. I’ve tried all those and they haven’t resonated or worked.
Regardless, if you are the type of person who can’t get past some advertising (it’s really not that much) then don’t listen. But if you are the type of person who believes your thoughts cause your feelings, and you can change your thoughts to have a better, more fulfilling life - then give it a try.
Y’all need to get over the Clutch mentions - this is great
Having been furloughed for six months due to the pandemic (after starting my dream job in January 2020 no less), I went through a complete identity crisis. A friend rec’d this podcast for numerous reasons and I was immediately hooked. I am not saying the ads and Clutch mentions don’t get slightly irritating. But she’s out here hustling and I have respect for that. As a marketing professional, I appreciate the elaborate nurture campaign. This podcast is free and doesn’t have to be - you get out of it what you want. The best thing I’ve personally absorbed thus far (in an early episode) is how to stop, or at least lessen, my expectations everyone should be abiding my “manual”. That hit. Hard.
