Podcast: EP 83 Do It Scared

Have you been scared of a big change?

 

Real talk friends: I’m about to get married and it’s brought up all the nerves about change and entering a new chapter. I know you can relate whether or not you’ve been married. But I wanted to lean into the fear I’ve been experiencing and share with you how I navigate it. It’s such a normal part of growth and evolution, and the more we understand it, the easier we can move through it.

In this episode, I share stories from my own life of how I’ve faced big fears during big change and how I moved through it. I give you the tools and recommendations that help me and that I know can help you if you are facing big change right now.

“When we’re in the business of change, it’s totally normal to have fear and discomfort show up.”

Podcast: EP 82 Total Transformation with Heidi Powell

Loving ourselves can mean a lot of things.

 

The idea of being fit, beautiful, successful, and smart can be overwhelming. It’s easy to look at people who seem to have it all and think it’s just a luck of the draw. But when I met today’s guest at an event we both spoke at, I loved her take on this so much, I knew I wanted her to share it with you.

Heidi Powell is the ultimate female force. She is a trainer, transformation specialist, mother of four, savvy businesswoman and entrepreneur, author, nutrition nut, and overall health guru. Heidi became a fixture in America’s living room as she worked side-by-side Chris Powell on ABC’s hit show, Extreme Weight Loss. Heidi empowered thousands across the globe as the matriarch and tour de force for the often-struggling participants, serving as their daily fitness coach, voice of reason, and biggest cheerleader. 

This conversation is about the journey to purpose, health, and joy and why it’s okay for it to be winding, unique, and one of a kind. Heidi is a bright light and I know you’ll connect with her story, her wisdom, and her joy.

“I am always going to be a work in progress.”

Podcast: EP 80 The Magic of Surrender with Kute Blackson

Podcast: EP 80 The Magic of Surrender with Kute Blackson

Have you ever struggled to surrender?

 

The idea of surrender is complicated for many of us. But when I read my friend Kute’s new book about the magic of surrender, I was so inspired to rethink what surrender can do for us. I truly loved this book and can’t wait for you to hear Kute’s wisdom in this episode.

A beloved inspirational speaker and transformational teacher, Kute Blackson offers a fresh, bold look at spiritual awareness for a whole new generation. Born in Ghana, West Africa, Kute’s multicultural upbringing as the child of a Japanese mother and a Ghanaian father has spanned four different continents. His unique lineage lay the foundation for his approach to breaking down barriers and unlocking an individual’s true gifts and greatness.

This conversation is about rethinking what surrender is (and what it’s not), how we can let go of what is holding us back, and ways to allow more magic in your life.

“Surrender is the password to freedom.”

Podcast: EP 34 Vivacious Living with Mary Crafts

I’m sharing one of my dearest friends on the show.

 

Mary is a sister to me, a dear friend, a light, an inspiration, and so much more. We’ve gotten to know each other over the past two years and what a gift that has been. I wanted to share her story on the podcast because I know everyone will relate to her beautiful transformation from fear to love.

Mary Crafts is…quite simply…. a living legend. From humble beginnings and dire circumstances, she invested blood, sweat and countless tears into building what would become the most celebrated catering company in Utah.

That multi-million dollar empire became the launching pad for so much more. Today, Mary has handed the reins of her catering empire to her incredibly gifted children who have taken her company to the next level, while Mary turns her attention to helping others build their dreams.

 

In this conversation, Mary shares her story of a huge wake-up call at 50 years old, her journey of learning to face her fears, lose excess weight, transform her life, and even climb Mt. Kilimanjaro at the age of 65. Get ready for an amazing story – Mary is the example that anything is possible.

“What would I do today if I wasn’t afraid?”
