Have you found yourself not "feeling like" being productive? Felt like you should be more productive in your day-to-day life, but you just couldn't seem to muster the motivation or the energy? If I'm being 1000% honest with you, that's been my experience a lot lately. I haven't been feeling the motivation. I have a TON of things I’m REALLY pumped for but I just haven’t been excited to DO them, you know? Have you been there, too? If you have, I'm sure you can resonate with the fact that that level of defeat, disenchantment, whatever you want to call it, it doesn't feel good, does it? Well, that's where I’ve been at. And it’s definitely a place that I’ve been before and that I’ve emerged from before. But how? How have I emerged from it. Today’s podcast was inspired by digging back into that. Looking at old #TruthBombTuesday newsletters, old journal entries, and just reflecting on my life to answer the question: “What did I do before to emerge from this”? And that is exactly what we’re going to talk about today!

I don't know about you, but I've felt STUCK lately...and I've been judging myself for it... It started a few weeks ago. I did a Quarterly Business Review with a friend for the first time ever and all I could think was "Oh my God! Some biz owner you are...you've never even DONE something like this before..." Then, not long after that, I saw all this stuff online about "Be the CEO. Have a CEO mindset!" and it caught my eye again. But with another heaping dose of "Ummm...I don't even know what that means...wow, I'm such a failure!" I've felt stuck. I've felt defeated. I haven't felt like my best self, and I have had a hard time reigning in the shit talk as it surfaced. But then this weekend I took part in a summit and during this summit she had us do an exercise that changed everything. It was an exercise that revealed not only my stuckness but why it was happening, that gave me permission to be vulnerable with myself and acknowledge what I'd been hiding, and it gave me permission to step up and step in to all of the fears that I'd been protecting myself from! In this week's episode, we're going to be talking about that stuckness. I'm going to get raw and real and share the letter that I wrote myself. And I'm going to give you some tangible steps for what you can do to give yourself some damn permission too!

✨THERE'S NO BETTER TIME FOR SELF-AWARENESS THAN RIGHT NOW✨ But what is self-awareness? Why do we need it?! And how can we even go about creating more self-awareness...? I've been talking about this a LOT on Instagram lately. I've been challenging my fellow high-achievers to get aware about their energy levels and what they're doing to manage them.

What does it mean to control the controllables? What does it look like to release? Release has been my word for 2020. And I'm so damn grateful it is. It came to me intuitively at the beginning of the year, and I'm not a woo-woo person, but I feel like it was meant. And it's saved my ass a tremendous amount of stress... Stress in my job. Stress in my business. Stress in my most recent injury and stress in this pandemic. When we release we accept that there's shit we can't control...and shit we can! And that's a powerful and important lesson to learn. So, in this episode, I'm going to be sharing some of my recent insights into how releasing has served me, how I've applied it to various parts of my life and some ways in which we can shift our focus to controlling the controllables!

Have you ever caught yourself saying: "One of my biggest values is connection..." or family or relationships and then felt that sinking feeling knowing that it's been AGES since you actually connected with the people you love and care about most in your life?! This is something that I used to feel often. That stuckness. That feeling of being completing out of alignment. I'd say I valued my health, and yet I was eating pizza every other night and I hadn't moved my body in months out of pure laziness. Being out of alignment with the things you value SUCKS! But what's even worse? Not even having any idea of what your values ACTUALLY ARE! In today's episode, we're going to take a look at exactly that! We're going to give you a road map for how to find your values, how to test them to make sure they're right for you, and then, how to LIVE your VALUES in your day-to-day life!

Have you ever caught yourself thinking: "I'm just so burned out by my workout...I just don't think I'm passionate about it. Maybe I should quit..." That was the exact conversation I was having with someone in my DMs on Instagram and it hit me so profoundly: we can get burned out DOING ANYTHING?! Why do we always blame a lack of passion? I've been there too! I've done that! I've quit work before, blaming a lack of passionate and found myself equally as burned out by my next career...even that career was doing the thing I was passionate about, working for myself! So, in today's podcast we're going to be talking about burnout and the misconceptions around it, where to start to set better boundaries between your work and your life, and where to start when it comes to making more time for yourself!

Did you start this year with a goal of getting healthier? Of finally taking back your health once and for all? I'll be the first to say how much I am NOT a fan of New Year's resolutions. But, I get how damn important it is for us to feel healthy, confident, and energetic. Hell, it's important for our productivity, too! But, so many people do things wrong when it comes to trying to get healthy. They do too many things at once and burn themselves out. They don't consider their routines and how easy it will be to maintain them. They don't have a deep, motivating reason for getting healthy - a reason that will keep them going when things get tough. I got my start in health and fitness coaching, and health is still such an integrated part of my life. So, in today's podcast episode, I'm giving you my top 5 tips for taking back your health. These tips are the ones I've used to create a healthy lifestyle that has stuck and that has lasted since I started my health journey is 2014.

To share personal growth tips and impactful conversations...I called it "The Growth Tribe" because I wanted to build a tribe of people who were as obsessed with personal growth as I was! But things are a little different now... I'm STILL OBSESSED with personal growth and probably always will be! But as we enter a new year and a new decade, I had a big f'ing realization...It's not just about personal growth...it's about intentional action to help you TAKE BACK YOUR DAMN LIFE! When I started my personal growth journey in 2014, every single thing I did had an intention. And that intention was to empower me to TAKE BACK MY DAMN LIFE and do it on my terms... And that's what I want this podcast to do for YOU...That's my MISSION. That's what I believe I was put on this earth to do! Cuz I know in my bones what it feels like to live a life that isn't yours...and I want to empower you to TAKE YOURS BACK! So, there are some changes coming up in this podcast!
