    Demystifying Money: Grounded, Tangible Ways to Build Wealth No Matter Where You’re Starting with Hannah Koenig

    Demystifying Money: Grounded, Tangible Ways to Build Wealth No Matter Where You’re Starting with Hannah Koenig

    Hannah Koenig is back on the show to discuss how to cultivate financial stability and sustainability. In part one of our conversation, we covered what’s going on in the coaching industry and how we’re working to address the systemic issues that we see in it. On today's episode, Hannah pulls back the curtain on how to heal your relationship to money, where to begin with your financial literacy journey, and the three stages of building wealth.

    It’s easy to see Hannah as the multiple six-figure CEO that she is today and think that she’s always had her finances figured out. The reality is that she grew up with a warped perception of money and didn’t trust herself to have a bank account less than ten years ago. She wanted to break the generational cycle of living in debt and constantly feeling stressed by money, so she tried all different methods to learn about wealth.

    What she discovered was that there’s only a small handful of financial products that are designed by women for women. So many of us are missing out on life-changing amounts of wealth and financial opportunities because of the major gaps in the market. Hannah has made it her mission to help entrepreneurs develop their financial intimacy and feel more empowered about their future. Listen in to hear her tangible and approachable advice for activating your financial abundance.

    Topics Covered:


    Why the majority of six-figure earners are living paycheck-to-paycheck
    How to recognize when you’re experiencing lifestyle and cash flow inflation
    The current systems and structures that exist within the financial sector that don’t benefit women and minorities
    Tips for creating a value-based budget
    Hannah’s opinions on investing in cryptocurrencies or other financial trends

    Examining The Coaching Industry: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly with Hannah Koenig

    Examining The Coaching Industry: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly with Hannah Koenig

    Hannah Koenig is a business and financial educator, speaker, and the founder of The Lead Well Summit. She’s all about having grounded, tangible conversations about the coaching industry, and today’s episode is no exception. We unpack our observations and thoughts about the current state of the coaching industry, and ways that we can work to address certain structural problems.


    I believe in the power of coaching and I’ve experienced the magic that can happen on both sides of the client-coach relationship. But, for Hannah and I, there have been points where we’ve experienced a level of ethical and cognitive dissonance with the industry. Hannah describes the relief she felt when she gave herself permission to go against the typical emulation model and work in a way that was more aligned with her values and vision.


    We talk about the gaslighting, gatekeeping, and information siloing that often happens in the coaching industry. Hannah highlights the gaps in the awareness and priorities of a lot of business coaches, and what she’s doing to address those issues with her clients and community. We also touch on the reality of burnout and strategies to avoid it.


    Remember to tune in next week to hear part two of our conversation where we cover how to increase your financial power and build wealth.


    Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or on your favorite podcast platform.


    Topics Covered:


    Recognizing business models and structures that cause more harm than good
    Creating systems that serve the majority of coaches
    Digging deeper on the discomfort that Hannah and I have felt on our entrepreneurial journeys
    What an emulation model is and why it doesn’t work
    Why it’s so important to engage in real, honest conversations about coaching

    Liberation and Cannabis with Tekisha Harvey

    Liberation and Cannabis with Tekisha Harvey

    I’m joined by Tekisha Harvey, founder of TH Consulting, co-founder of CannaCurious, and Head of Marketing at FlowerHire, a premier cannabis recruiting agency. When Tekisha first started experimenting with cannabis, she felt like there wasn’t a space in the industry for high-achieving, professional women like herself to learn more and connect. Together with Diana Sanmiguel, she launched CannaCurious, a digital women’s magazine that showcases the many ways that cannabis can enhance a woman’s lifestyle.


    In our conversation, we peel back the layers of propaganda surrounding the cannabis industry. Tekisha shares what her cannabis journey has been like and highlights the positive ripple effect that it’s had on her life. She describes how she’s been able to take more ownership over her health, stand in her power, and uphold her boundaries. On a broader scale, we discuss how dismantling the stigma associated with cannabis is helping more women tap into their personal liberation.


    Tekisha and I also chat about the vision behind CannaCurious and how it’s evolved since its inception in April 2020. Through the growth and changes, the mission has remained the same: to give a voice to the marginalized communities who are transforming the cannabis industry and provide them with a platform to share their stories. Listen in to learn more about Tekisha and the inspiring work she’s doing around the education and accessibility of cannabis.


    Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or on your favorite podcast platform.


    Topics Covered:


    What Tekisha loves most about working in the cannabis industry
    The history behind the Schedule I drug classification and some of the work being done to change that
    The intersection of cannabis accessibility, education, and personal liberation
    Cannabis as a tool to take an active role in your own care
    The ‘cannamom’ movement that is helping normalize parents and caregivers who use cannabis

    Creating Unconventional Romance through Astrology with Julie McGill

    Creating Unconventional Romance through Astrology with Julie McGill

    I'm joined by Julie McGill, aka Jules, an attorney turned astrologer and founder of The Cosmic Gem. Jules and I explore how she uses astrology to help people explore their true purpose and ideal relationship structures.

    We dive into how your birth chart informs the blueprint of your desires, values, what you find beautiful, and what you feel called to do in life. She shares what her personal romantic relationship looks like and how she used astrology to notice her (and her partner’s) patterns. In opening herself up to unconventional relationship structures and non-monogamy, it also allowed her to deepen her intimacy with her true desires.

    Jules emphasizes that we don’t need to turn the concept of relationships on its head, but rather test places where the traditional model may not suit everyone, as well as support and encourage people to really find what works with them. There’s a lot of shame and taboo around people who deviate from the norm, but there’s something to celebrate about the fact that this is the first time in human history that relationships are for the purpose of happiness and fulfillment, not just survival and economic prosperity.

    Tune in to hear our conversation about how astrology can help you tap into your authentic self.


    Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or on your favorite podcast platform.


    Topics Covered:


    What our birth chart can tell us about how we show up in partnerships
    Finding a balance between living your truth and projecting what freedom means to you on to someone else
    Opening our understanding of what relationships are, why they work, the way they work
    Tools for rekindling the spark with your partner
    Jules’s observations about generations of Pluto and Libra and Pluto and Scorpio
    How we can look at our needs, accept that about ourselves, and really fulfill it in a way that serves our partnership

    Response to the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

    Response to the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

    In my reflections on the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, I’ve been thinking about what sustainable activism means to me and what it takes to create true change. I’ve realized that the first step is to get really honest about what my country is and what it isn't. I’ve needed to adjust and let go of the idealized version of the US that I had in my head.

    Another part of creating real change is to regulate the nervous system. People in power are leveraging our dysregulated nervous systems to get us to show up on election day the way they want us to, donate our money, and get complacent. A major part of regulating the nervous system involves leaning into conversations that are challenging, even triggering, and staying in that complexity with people we love, unpacking ideas together, and holding each other accountable.

    Opting into long change requires more work than bickering with keyboard warriors on social media threads, but you have a greater impact in these nuanced, civil discussions. I'm more interested in efficacy and creating a world where women, children, people of color, indigenous, and LGBTQIA+ identifying folks are safer. I’m not perfect, but I’m dedicated to figuring out how to show up for those communities, rather than collapsing into this self-righteous desire to be angry and eventually burn out.

    Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or on your favorite podcast platform.

    Topics Covered:


    What sustainable activism is and how I engage in it
    My thoughts on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade
    Conversations that I’m having with people of all different political backgrounds
    Why it’s so important to take yourself out of fight or flight mode before getting into political discussions
    Tapping into the power we have to educate the people around us

    Coming Out. I'm Queer!

    Coming Out. I'm Queer!

    I’ve been on a journey of dismantling and reassembling my own understanding of what's most true for me when it comes to my sexuality. I have fallen wonderfully in love and I'm in a queer relationship right now. It has radically shifted my lived experience of how I get to be loved and how someone can be capable of loving me. The labels that feel supportive to me right now are androsexual and demisexual, and I explain how I’m using those terms for myself.

    I’ve felt a divide between who I truly am and how I was professionally presenting to the world for a while now. I was confusing the need to niche down with not showing up for LGBTQIA people. I became aware of the volume of what I didn't know, as well as the blind spots of my own privilege.

    Through the Queer Competency Course I did with Terra Anderson and conversation with other queer people in my community, I’ve realized that I’ve been intensely connecting gender to sexuality. It’s been such a liberating experience to detach masculine energy from the body that may or may not hold it. Listen in to hear more about how I’ve been exploring my queerness and rewriting limiting narritives I’ve held about sexuality.

    Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or on your favorite podcast platform.

    Topics Covered:


    Reflecting on the ways that the patriarchy punishes men for feeling their emotions
    What learning about non-monogamy is teaching me about my own window of tolerance and how I value investing energy and relationships
    Confronting the resistances and discomforts I had in my body that I never realized, like internalized homophobia and transphobia
    Making sure I'm showing up in sustainable and actionable ways to further liberate LGBTQIA people
    How I came to the conclusion that I identify as androsexual and demisexual

Thoughtful + Inspiring

What a treat for my ears! Theora has incredible guests & doesn’t not hold back with honest conversation around a diverse range of topics. I always learn something & walk away feeling soothed- a truly great podcast for anyone on a quest for living a well + intentional life.

Disappointed on Bainbridge Is. ,

Affirming and Inspiring

I am now a committed listener to these podcasts by Theora. I love her joyously curious exploration of so many different subjects from polar expeditions to space junk to relationship intimacy to entrepreneurial social justice. Her interviews entice her guests to share their own passions and curiosity from a deeply personal perspective with excitement and humor. I just re-listened to Episode 4 on ADHD and redefining one’s relationship to neuro-diversity. I felt seen and deeply moved by Theora’s personal stories and her reframing of how ADHD as a divine design can be liberating in the living of my life. As I progress through the beginning of my 8th decade I feel a new sense of possibility to live my life with more love and grace toward myself and others.

Brain massage; expansion

….like a brain massage…I mean, if you’re in to that sort of thing. Listening to this podcast feels like someone is getting into my cortical convolutions and cleaning out the cobwebs. It’s always a fun adventure as seemingly nothing is off the table. Theora and the guests she brings on are lively, witty, and smart. Always look forward to the next episode.
