What It Really Looks Like to Be Vulnerable, and Why You Should || with Unpolished Podcast's Sarah Carpenter and Stacy Weinstein

Wednesday, August 29, 2018


"Vulnerability" is a popular term these days.  But for very good reason.

Forget thinking "vulnerability" is where your distant relative shares all the horrible minutia of her life.  True vulnerability demands courage.  The kind where we look at our true selves in the mirror, see what needs to change, and get going.

It's also the kind that lends yourself a tremendous amount of compassion as you navigate growth and the "humanness" you'll experience along the way.

Sarah Carpenter and Stacy Weinstein of the Unpolished Podcast are experts in this field, both from teaching others and practicing true vulnerability in their own lives.  Listen in to hear what this really looks like, how vulnerability will empower you to move towards a much better you, and why it's possibly the only "should" that you need on your priorities.

Embrace Your Inner Child (and Improve Your Parenting, Too) || with Neena Warburton

Wednesday, August 22, 2018


"Stop being so childish!"


What if we encouraged the child-like strengths our children gravitate to instead of demanding they grow up?

What if we thought about what we liked to do as children ourselves--what our personalities were like, our interests, dreams, and even things we liked to do--and made that the basis for who we can better become as adults?

Neena Warburton believes that becoming more child-like is the key to unlocking what our spirit longs to be AND helps us better parent our kids.

So if you're struggling to figure out who you are because you don't recognize yourself any more--reconnect with your own inner child.  And if you can't figure out how to handle a challenging kid in your life--translate their child-like traits into strengths and do your best to better cultivate that. (And engage with them more as a child, too!)

Neena is on the show to teach us how to do both.

Stop Settling! How Being a Little Braver Can Shift Everything || with Christiana Hill of the Art of Bravery

Wednesday, August 15, 2018


Christiana Hill and her husband were living a perfectly prescribed life.  And they were miserable.

Going off the script for them--which involved quitting their jobs, saying more empowered "no's," and moving into a remodeled school bus (a "skoolie")--was the opposite of easy, but it was exactly what they needed.

You don't need to make such drastic changes to alter the course of your life, too.  In fact, Christiana preaches that "being brave is in the every day actions."  Finding small ways to ignite some courage will build a foundation for bigger acts of bravery when you need to step up, and step out, in ways that are truer to who you really want to become.

Listen in to learn how this can look for you and why it's worth getting a little uncomfortable.

Practicing the Mindset You Want || with Camille Andros

Friday, August 3, 2018


Camille Andros is used to juggling a lot of balls.  As an author and mother of six, she often battles having a lot of important priorities and all at the same time.  Not just in spite of this, but because of it, Camille has learned that in order to be "all in" and present with the task at hand, you have to practice the mindset of intentionality.  Creating this mindset shift has enabled Camille to be a better author, mother, and work on her own self-development.

Listen to learn how this is the case for Camille, as well as how she learned the importance of knowing her own "why" in all areas of her life, and about her new book The Dress and the Girl and its timely release during this important historical moment of immigration crises.
