17: Mental Health Wife | Gillian

This conversation is with my friend Gillian, who I met on social media.  Yes!  You can make connections and legit friends via the interwebs.  I was drawn to her account and started communicating with her because her Instagram handle was @mentalhealthwife and I wanted to know more about her story and what exactly was behind…

16: Why We Chose to Homeschool | Elizabeth

This conversation is with my friend Elizabeth and it was so, SO much fun to catch up with her. Elizabeth and I went to high school together (and grade school and junior high – small town) but, we haven’t spoken since. I think we’ve determined it’s been over 25 years! With the blessing and the…

15: Becoming A Serial Entrepreneur | Wayne

This week I’m chatting with Wayne — I met Wayne on another podcast I produce, which is why I was already familiar with some of his stories.  Wayne is someone I could sit and listen to tell stories all day — and he has a lot of them, which is why I was really excited to…

14: Embracing Our Feely Selves | Nōn

Does anyone else have an issue being honest about how they are?  About naming their feelings?  Even just being honest with yourself.  I have this knee jerk idea that I need to be fine.  Always fine; have everything always handled.  I don’t know where it comes from, but that isn’t normal.  The full rainbow of…

13: What Does It Mean to be Human? | Jen

This is the first episode I’ve released since I took my break!  And I thought it only fitting that it was a conversation with my mentor, New York Times bestselling author of On Being Human, Jen Pastiloff, the woman who inspired me and pushed me and fueled my spirit with what I needed to start…

12: Living My Joy | Gina

So, I’m at this Mardi Gras party – In St. Louis, not the real deal.  But, did you know St. Louis has a pretty big Mardi Gras celebration?  It does.  Does that seem odd?  Also, yes, it does.  Anyway, I was with the big, loud group of women crammed into the corner when Gina –…

11: Toxic Masculinity | Michael

In this episode I’m discussing Toxic Masculinity with my brother in law Michael.  Let me start by telling you how this topic, and ultimately this conversation, came about. There isn’t a lot of “planning” per se that goes into the process cultivating a dismantling normal “season.” I don’t decide I want a specific theme or…

10: Let’s Talk About Sex | Leah

This is a great conversation, I’ll say that right up front. Talking to Leah was amazing and refreshing. I talk to plenty of friends and family on the podcast who are ready and willing to share their stories. Often, however, I just come across someone on social media — sometimes they have platforms, sometimes they…

09: The Body Positive Movement | Serena

These show notes are not only the place where I summarize the conversation on the podcast, but also where I attempt to be as authentic and honest as possible about the conversation; why I wanted to explore it or how it relates to my life or what I learned from it.  And, I have to…

08: The Black Fairy Godmother | Simone

So, lately, I’ve been really frazzled. I’ve stopped sleeping.  I stay up in the middle of the night for hours going over every fuck up and even creating things for me to be anxious about if I find myself without enough on the list.  I haven’t done this in a long time, not since we…
