Podcast: EP 90 The Turned On Life with Kate Strong

Podcast: EP 90 The Turned On Life with Kate Strong

There’s another way to practice self-care.

 

I love my friend Kate Strong — ever since I first met her at a women’s event years ago, I’ve been drawn to her self-love, her power, and her understanding of what it means to really take care of yourself.

Here’s how Kate talks about her journey and her work: “Most of the problems you are experiencing arise from battles within. I’ve been through it: faith transition, heartbreak, divorce, depression, anxiety, and more. On my journey of self-love and healing, I have become a healer, shaman, life coach, certified personal trainer, yoga instructor, and speaker. I am a guide who has walked the path to finding my true self, and from it has emerged a heart full of love, gratitude, perspective, and optimism. I want that for all. I am here to help.”

In this episode, Kate shares the key lessons that have transformed her life, her self-care, her work, and her love for herself. I know you’ll resonate with some or all of her story and be empowered to dive deeper into your own self-care as well.

“Asking myself led me to getting to know myself, which the end result of was loving myself.”

Podcast: EP 89 Harmony In the Holidays

Podcast: EP 89 Harmony In the Holidays

I felt inspired to share some tips for the season.

 

I was invited a couple of weeks ago to share on my local TV station some tips for staying present and mindful during the holiday season. It was a perfect invite because I had already been thinking about this topic for myself, and I loved preparing and sharing some ideas on the show. 

In this episode, I share some of my thoughts from the TV segment, as well as some extra nuggets that have helped me learn to make the most of the holidays, physically, mentally, and emotionally. My hope is that they support you in creating a holiday season that will nourish, inspire, and restore you this year.

“What are the pieces of the holidays that you love? Do more of that.”

I’m back with danielle and we’re talking about gentleness.

 

I met Danielle years ago when we were both in younger chapters of our careers and lives. It’s been a joy to watch her evolve as I’ve evolved, and I was so excited to hear her wisdom on this episode when we met to talk about her newest book.

She’s also the author of more books including her newest one, How to Be Loving. She and her team coach hundreds of leaders around the world.

In this episode, Danielle shares her journey of learning to be gentle, loving, and healing to herself, and why this is essential for your life, health, and business success.
