Podcast: EP 42 Talking Love + Relationships with Arielle Ford

Let’s talk about love.

 

This is a topic that we all think about but we don’t always know how to move forward towards our goals. That’s why I invited a dear friend, Arielle Ford, to talk to us about soulmates, relationships, love, and conscious dating.

Arielle Ford is a leading personality in the personal growth and contemporary spirituality movement. For the past 30 years she has been living, teaching, and promoting consciousness through all forms of media. She is a celebrated love and relationship expert, author, speaker, and is the co-creator and host of Evolving Wisdom’s Art of Love series. Her mission is to help women Find Love, Keep Love and Be Love.

Arielle has been called “The Cupid of Consciousness” and “The Fairy Godmother of Love.” She lives in La Jolla, CA with her husband/soulmate, Brian Hilliard and their feline friends.

 
In this conversation we talk about what love is (and isn’t), what a soulmate is, how to rethink your current mindset about your ability to be loved, and so much more.

 

“Love is a behavior. A decision. An action. A way of being.”

Podcast: EP 33 Choose Your Legacy with Steve Dennis

Podcast: EP 33 Choose Your Legacy with Steve Dennis

Get ready to nourish your heart with light.

 

I got to have a powerful, heart-breaking, and nourishing conversation with a dear friend a couple of weeks ago. My heart was in pain over the events happening in our country after the death of George Floyd and I was looking for clarity and answers. Steve shared such beautiful insight with me that I knew it would be a gift if he shared his story and perspectives with my podcast audience.

Internationally acclaimed entrepreneur, speaker, trainer and life coach, Steve Dennis has shared the stage with such personal development masters as John Maxwell and Jack Canfield. Steve is a member of The John Maxwell Team, an elite group of certified coaches and communicators mentored by the #1 leadership expert in the world and New York Times best-selling author, John Maxwell.

Steve trains and motivates with an emphasis on strengthening leaders and helping them to maximize their skills and effectiveness and identify the potential in the individual. He digs deep and identifies the potential in people. He believes that in order to build businesses, you first must build people.  

In this conversation, Steve shares his wisdom about growing up as a black man in America, being bullied for being overweight, and making the choice to transform his pain into light and legacy. I hope that this episode will nourish your heart the same way it did mine.

“I am not what you call me, I am only what I answer to.”

I’ve had something on my heart lately.

 

I keep talking about a certain topic at my speaking engagements and with friends. It keeps coming up, and I know that means I’m meant to share it on the podcast as well.

It’s this: your self-worth and your self-confidence are two different things, and they require different care.

I’m sharing my thoughts on this, with lots of encouragement, truth-telling, and love, in this episode on the podcast. I’d love to hear your thoughts over on social media after you listen.

“Your self-worth is not outside of you.”
