This week's guest is Nicole Jenkins, co-founder of Ladies and the Trap, and member of Unega Mountain Dog Rescue. Nicole was one of the first confirmed guests when Misty decided to do a series on Dreamers. Once a special needs school teacher, Nicole has faithfully remained tuned in to herself, and when something no longer served her, she's followed that intuitive calling along an incredible journey. Today, living many dog lovers' dreams, Nicole spends her days rescuing dogs. Through her business Ladies and the Trap, where they rescue lost pets, and working full time with Unega Mountain Dog Rescue, where they rescue, rehabilitate, and home Great Pyrenees and Akbash working dogs. Not only does Nicole impart some serious wisdom regarding following our dreams, and reflecting back on how intuitive choices truly do bring us full circle in alignment, but she enlightens us on what it means for a dog to be considered a working dog, and how sad the lives of most of these dogs are before Unega finds them. If you love dogs like we do, and are looking for a deeply needed and worthy cause to contribute to, we hope you'll consider Unega Mountain Dog Rescue.

With Ivy eld... {150}

With Ivy eld... {150}


"There's a privilege in following a dream." ~ Emily Brandt My guest today is indie folk-pop artist Ivy Eld, from Ashville North Carolina. Ivy's music dances in the land of paradox. Her voice is simultaneously angelic and rawly human. Ivy longs for her music to be an oasis of healing and beauty–a call to deeper respect and compassion for ourselves and for humanity. She considers her music to be another facet of how she shows up in the world in authentic and passionate service–as a singer-songwriter, a therapist, a mom, a partner, an advocate, a friend, a human. She hopes her thoughtful, earthy, poetic songs will inspire others to look inside–light, shadows, and all–and come home to their deeply worthy selves. Talking with Ivy is as enlightening as it is grounding. Her support of Indigenous artists and the authentic way in which she walks the both/and path are just the tip of the many reasons why Ivy is an artist and woman to support and follow...

Katie Allen is NO stranger to the show! Our Collective Community adores her! Katie Allen is a stylist who, a few years ago, had to pivot when she lost her job in corporate America. What followed was a real-time lesson via her podcast in reconnecting with who she was as a woman. Today, Katie is a stylist using her "Feelings First" styling methodology to connect women back to their bodies and lives by reawakening their signature style. Katie believes that our clothes allow us to choose a feeling and manifest whatever we want–whether that's more fun, more connection, or more abundance. "When women feel confident in their clothes they live optimistically, have deeper self-respect, and attract more opportunities."

Our guest in this episode is Sarah Weeger, or “Weegs” as her friends call her. Sarah is a wife, a full-time mom to their 4-year-old daughter, Hudson, and the owner of Hey Weegs, a greeting company. She founded Hey Weegs a few years ago after becoming a mom, and finding herself diagnosed with postpartum depression and anxiety. As part of her healing, and as the former graphic designer she was, Sarah began creating the cards that she had wished she received during those times: cards that address the hard things people might be going through – without the unsolicited advice or trite cliches, trying to fix it. Today, Sarah has created nearly 100 designs – ranging from what she calls “Cards for Sucky Situations”, cards for moms (her sweet spot), and just plain funny, go-to cards for things like birthdays.

Time to Rest... {133}


The start of February brings our fourth season to a close! How is that even possible??? One hundred and thirty-three conversations with well over 150 amazing women. Humbled! I am so grateful this is my life! For the next several months we will each be pursuing our own projects, plans, trips, and adventures while also resting and connecting with others in our individual ways. Perhaps the biggest miracle of all is that the five of us were able to come together and record this conversation for you! We absolutely love the times when we can come together, and hopefully, you'll love this often silly conversation too! We chat about what this season has been like for us, what we've learned, and where we each (as individuals) are headed in this next chapter.  We want to thank you for being the best listeners and community! Now, it's time to rest...  #seasonfinale #seasonfourisawrap #girltalk #womensupportingwomen #entrepreneur #authors #goals --- Support this podcast:
