WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

In our conversation, Vasavi describes emotional sobriety as the ability to deal with life without having to reach for things externally to make us feel good on the inside (soo good, right?!). At the time of recording, she was five months sober and living in a sober living house. And, my love, this conversation with her is one of the greatest sermons I’ve ever heard. One year ago, Vasavi was living a double life: coach, social worker, and TV personality by day, cocaine and alcohol addict by night. And she’s sharing so much of what she’s learned in this conversation.

We talk about…

  • How she built a brand on pride and ego that ultimately led her to drugs and alcohol
  • Overcoming a cocaine and alcohol addiction
  • Life after addiction in a sober living house
  • Why the question “what’s my motive?” is one to ask yourself every day!
  • Codependency
  • What it means to be emotionally sober

 

WHO'S VASAVI KUMAR?

Vasavi Kumar is often described as "your kick-in-the-pants guide en route to your desired destination.” She is a grateful recovering addict, licensed social worker, special education teacher, and a certified coach. Vasavi holds dual Masters degrees in Special Education from Hofstra University and Social Work from Columbia University. She's a pro at attracting media and works with her clients to create and go after opportunities that are aligned with their brand values. She has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, was a regular on NBC’s Kansas City Live as the “Keepin’ It Real Guru.” and was on VH1’s Basketball Wives where she coached one of the main stars of the show. She truly believes that with impeccable character, work ethic, and unwavering values, you can do, be and have anything you want. Connect with her at www.VasaviKumar.com.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

I know the feeling, sister. You don’t want to be the weirdo lone believer that doesn’t believe what everyone else does. Running from your beliefs doesn’t make you more happily fit in, though. It leaves you misaligned and not belonging to the one person who matters most - you. So, in this episode, I’m sharing with you one profound question that gave me the answer I’d been looking for for months. I’m also sharing with you about my journey away from religion towards spirituality and how I found myself in a past life regression therapy session visiting myself in past lives.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Rather than pursuing the traditional (and expected) legal route after graduating from one of the top law schools in the country, Christina found herself building a business as a yoga instructor … and designing logos, trying her hand at calligraphy, learning floral design … and trying to find the one thing that would stick. She spent nearly three years in limbo not knowing where her income was going to come from, going into a ton of debt, and watching everyone else seemingly figure it out. Cut to today. Christina runs two very successful businesses, a law firm that focuses on intellectual property, and The Contract Shop, a contract template store for creative entrepreneurs. And along the way, she’s broken every mold of expectation to build a life and business that she loves.

We talk about…

  • Why Christina didn’t practice law for several years after college
  • How attending creative conferences before she had launched her business helped her figure it out
  • The pivotal conversation with Jenna Kutcher and the Rising Tide Society meeting that inspired Christina to use her legal know-how to work with creatives
  • How she’s embraced her fun + goofy side in the serious, uber-professional world of attorneys

 

WHO IS CHRISTINA SCALERA?

Christina Scalera is the attorney and founder behind The Contract Shop, a contract template store for creative entrepreneurs, wedding professionals, and coaches.

Three years ago, Christina found herself dreaming of pursuing a more creative path, and she started to look for alternatives to her in-house legal job. She explored everything from teaching yoga to becoming a freelance graphic designer to opening an Etsy shop.

In the process, she ended up coming full circle by creating a business that brought the benefit of her legal training to help her fellow creatives.

When she’s not staring at a computer or awkwardly standing on cafe chairs for the perfect overhead latte photo, you can find her in the woods doing things that are sometimes dangerous but always fun, like riding horses, skiing and reluctantly camping.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Follow your passion, not the paycheck. Spoiler alert: that’s the moral of the story. It isn’t the entire story, though, and JJ Anderson’s story is one you’re going to want to listen to. It isn’t some finely tuned inspirational speech encouraging you to dig deep, pursue joy, and forget about the money. It’s a real life, raw, messy and beautiful account of one girl’s journey from dropping out of college to becoming the youngest talk show host in America at an independent sports television network to learning that the pursuit of money isn’t everything.

We talk about…

  • the unexpected life-changing advice professional boxer, Evander Holyfield gave JJ
  • starting a video production company with no video production experience
  • why making money the first priority is a mistake
  • when your business partner is also your romantic partner
  • how sitting in NA and AA meetings with her parents as a little kid taught her lessons that still drive her today

 

WHO IS JJ ANDERSON?

At the age of 21, JJ Anderson earned the title of youngest talk show host in America at an independent sports television network. During this time, she worked side by side with Mortal Kombat producer and the station’s founder Larry Kassanoff to deliver original quality programming on an international platform. Through hosting, JJ was able to discover a true passion for connecting with others and so she quickly began to take on the role of a producer in order to be more hands on with the process. Recognizing the ample opportunity and freedom in digital media- JJ helped to establish LA based media + production company HRDWRKER with the mission of creating inspirational on- demand content. Through HRDWRKER, she strives to tell captivating stories and create awareness around important social issues. Since the company’s establishment in 2014, JJ has had the amazing opportunity to create segments and series for various world-renowned media corporations and entities such as: NYLON, Juxtapoz Magazine, The California African-American Museum, Topo Chico, and Eddie Bauer.

The one thing we can be sure of, in life and in business, is change. It's happening around us and to us (ohh hiiii, wrinkles!) every day, sister. So, as TRFE continues to evolve and change, I want to pull back the curtains and share with you how I'm feeling, what my fears are, and why I'm allowing the brand to evolve and change despite the foundation I’ve already built.

I share about…

  • letting my intuition guide this new phase of TRFE
  • not being able to explain decisions with logic when it just feels “right”
  • how I’ve been embracing the spiritual journey of entrepreneurship
  • how the “stupid” decisions I’ve made in the past were the best decisions I could have made

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

If you’ve ever had the desire to travel the world while working and live the digital nomad life, I’m so excited to share this episode with you! After building her business for eight months, Anna Grymes left her Wall Street job, sold everything in her New York City apartment, and spent the next year traveling the world while continuing to run a thriving business. And I ask her ALL the questions! Starting with the really big one we’re all wondering: how did you find the courage to leave behind this career and cozy six-figure salary life you’d spent over a decade building? Her answer had me praise hands’ing all alone in my office and wanting to scream her answer from the freaking mountaintops.

So, make sure you listen all the way through for that golden life nugget. I also asked her all of the other questions we’re all wondering (especially those of us who dream of doing this one day)... how did you plan so that you’d always have internet? How did you balance work while not having a consistent routine and traveling to see all of these amazing spots? How’d you make friends and meet other people while traveling alone?

We talk about…

  • when you wake up and realize that the life you’ve been consciously working so hard towards isn’t the life you want anymore
  • what it’s like to travel the world solo
  • how to build a business that supports your digital nomad life
  • how to find, meet, and connect with other digital nomads while traveling
  • what the not-so-glamorous and unexpected parts are of the digital nomad life

 

WHO'S ANNA GRYMES?

Anna Grymes started her entrepreneurial journey in 2016 by creating a marketing services company focused on the real estate industry. Her life’s passion is travel and she built her business around doing just that. While working in the demanding finance industry on Wall Street in NYC she realized she was going to need a lot more than three weeks of vacation to see the world. So, Anna built her business around location-independent living, quit her corporate job, and can be found running her company anywhere from a hammock in Thailand to a pub in Dublin. She has recently launched a business strategy and coaching business to help other aspiring entrepreneurs find that freedom in their lives, too. Anna is a Jacksonville, Florida native and graduated with an MBA from the University of Florida.

Ladies, it’s possible to beautifully and seamlessly merge motherhood and entrepreneurship. I didn’t say it was always easy. I did say it was possible. And Michelle Knight is the badass queen that’s a beautiful example of this! She’s not only figured out how to merge them beautifully while growing her coaching business from the ground up, but she’s also figured out how confidently own her story (and motherhood) in the process.

We talk about…

  • What it means to own your story
  • Vulnerability and the fear of being seen
  • How she incorporates her son into her business (and live videos!)

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Back in 2009, Tara Foley was writing a blog focused on finding and sharing clean beauty alternatives. Today, with multiple retail locations popping up across the country and an ecommerce site, she’s the founder, leader, and visionary of Follain, a healthy beauty retail alternative, where she aims to create a clean and green Sephora. In our conversation, Tara walks me through every step of the process from foregoing law school to spending four months working on a lavender farm and France.

We talk about…

  • Taking a business idea from blog to national retailer
  • Balancing education and a retail as Follain educates consumers on clean beauty
  • How she strategically built and tested a foundation for Follain before launching
  • The role mentors have played in her journey
  • Her piece of advice for anyone just starting out
  • What she learned from her first pilot store
  • Testing different business models early on to learn and grow
  • The challenges of leading + managing a team of experts with knowledge that surpasses yours

 

WHO IS TARA FOLEY?

Back in 2009, Tara was on a completely different career path (law!), working long hours, and trying to stay healthy. It occurred to her that she focused on fitness and healthy eating - but not what she put on her face and body. So she started asking questions and launched a blog focused on finding clean options. The response showed her how many of us wanted to understand what we’re putting on ourselves and where to find effective, luxurious, nontoxic options. When the concept won a national retail business plan competition during her MBA program at Babson, she knew she was onto something! After years of hands-in-the-dirt learning both on a lavender farm in France and with a private label beauty company, she founded Follain in 2013 because she believed and still do that no one should have to sacrifice health for beauty. With degrees in public policy and business, Tara's vision, passion, and activism fuel Follain’s growth, and its mission of improving the health and lives of others.

Tara Foley launched Follain in July 2013, as the healthy beauty retail alternative, and a catalyst for cleaning up the U.S. beauty industry. Before Follain, Tara researched safe and sustainable skincare, apprenticing on an organic lavender farm in France, and with a private label skin care company in Maine. With degrees in public policy and business, Tara's vision, passion, and activism fuel Follain’s growth, and its mission of improving the health and lives of others.

Loves, my heart could not be more eager to share this gem that has guided my life for over seven years now with you!! In the summer of 2011, without realizing what was happening, I began asking myself this one question that would end up guiding me over the next seven years of my life. In hindsight, I’ve realized this question was instrumental in helping me learn how to listen to my intuition. It’s also been the foundation of the joy and happiness I experience. As I’ve shared more about listening to my own intuition, I’ve gotten more questions about how to know if what you’re hearing is really coming from your intuition. So, I’m finally sharing with you the one question that helped me and can help you if you’re just starting out.

I’m sharing about…

  • how to practice listening to your intuition when you don’t know where to start
  • the one question you can start asking yourself today to learn how to listen to your intuition
  • how to know if the answers you’re getting are coming from your intuition
  • how I get advice from my 80-year-old-self
  • how to view your decisions today from a place of peace and wisdom

Loves, I’ve got to say this is my very first time hearing a business story that starts with a wild sabbatical in the desert. We all deal with traumatic life experiences differently. I usually eat sugar, cry, and watch Netflix. For Hallie Mazurkiewicz, she found herself heading into the desert where she would spend three days fasting in complete solitude with nothing but a book of poems and a journal. I know. Hella inspirational. This entire conversation with Hallie is inspiring and encourages you to slow down, look inwards, and listen for your own quiet whisper from the universe.

We talk about…

  • How Hallie transitioned from her career in teaching to entrepreneurship
  • How she handled the traumatic experience of her stepbrother dying at a very young age
  • Why she ended a relationship with her life partner, packed everything up, and moved to New York City
  • How a 10-day vision quest into the desert and exploring her childhood journals was the catalyst for launching her business
  • Creating Lunar Wild to support and celebrate young women as they approach the onset of their first period
  • The importance of listening to your intuitive voice as an entrepreneur

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Fear. The theme of my life, am I right? Well, it’s been the theme of Dayhanna Acosta’s life, too. In very different ways. From the fear of growing up in a war zone amidst one of the most dangerous places in the world to the fear of public speaking, in our convo Dayhanna shares about fear in a new and very unique way. She says things like “own that fear” and talked about finding peace with it. And here’s the thing - because of all of the fear Dayhanna has experienced (not despite it) she’s learned to keep moving forward without pause even in the face of it. She’s learned to peacefully co-exist with her fears. It’s wildly inspiring.

We talk about…

  • Growing up with a sense of normalcy even amidst a constant underlying sense of fear and paranoia
  • Her life changing suddenly from growing up very well-off and financially secure to losing it all
  • How fear holds us back from confidently promoting ourselves
  • Dealing with the fear of public speaking
  • Learning to listen to your fears
  • How to find peace with your fear
  • The fears Dayhanna faced when launching a new podcast

 

WHO IS DAYHANNA ACOSTA?

Dayhanna Acosta is a business owner, a marketing strategist, and the creator of Chase Your Fears; a podcast and community for driven people who are ready to welcome change, elevate their life and live beyond fear.

Hi, my loves. My name is Lauren. If we’ve met before, I’m glad you’re still here. If we haven’t, allow me to introduce myself. As we kick off season five of the podcast, I thought I’d share a little clip with you from my voice journal and reintroduce myself. After all, this is a long life and I’ve got lots of changing and growing to do. So, I think a new introduction is appropriate.

And make sure to subscribe and stay tuned. Season five is going to be GOLDEN!

”I find myself living so much more consciously and so much more from a place of gratitude and appreciation. I don’t take things for granted anymore. I always say what I have to say and express. I don’t have any regrets. I don’t hold myself back. Because I know that tomorrow might not happen and for myself, that was a very real experience for me.”

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Ji-Youn is a young Korean-Canadian woman living in Vancouver, Canada. Her family immigrated there when she was five. Ji told me, “I was the typical Asian-Canadian woman who wanted to go to med school.” But life had other plans. Ji calls them ‘givens’, not ‘gifts’. And after several difficult givens, Ji hit a really low point - workaholism, overcommitment, suicide attempts. So, Ji made the decision to drop out of college. After sharing her story online and realizing that what she experienced wasn’t an isolated incident, she decided she had to be the one to make a change.

If I were to share what the next few years of her life looked in a synopsis, it’d go a little something like this: Ji took on the weight of the world and the responsibility to create big, systemic change // she launched The Tipping Point Mental Health Society // the theme of workaholism, overcommitment, and mental health overwhelm resurfaced for her in the entrepreneurial world // with her life at stake, Ji knew something had to change // Ji combined disciplined self-care with personal development and created a plan to change her life // she now helps others do the same.

We talk about…

  • What a given is versus a gift
  • Finding appreciation and gratitude for life after suicide attempts
  • Living with complex PTSD and intergenerational trauma
  • The mediocrity of the entrepreneurial hustle (and why that’s not the only way)
  • When healing becomes a performance
  • Knowing your significance and also knowing your smallness
  • How she practices day-to-day self-care and self-compassion
  • The fine line between resilience and burning out: “are you driven by fear or by love?”

 

WHO IS JI-YOUN KIM?

Ji-Youn is an emerging self-care & performance coach, helping ambitious people optimize their focus and energy through disciplined self-care. She sees well-being as a professional responsibility and is committed to setting a new standard for efficient, sustainable work by interlacing personal development with self-care. Ji-Youn is particularly fond of working with university students due to her personal experiences in academia, which led her to found The Tipping Point Mental Health Society. Outside of work, she is an amateur acroyogi, an avid reader, and sensuality enthusiast.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Once upon a time, a young woman found herself starting back at her reflection wearing a pair of her husband’s boxers and a baggy tee. And she wondered, “Is this really it?”

My loves, meet Ashley Merrill, the CEO and founder of Lunya, where she’s redefining what sleepwear looks and feels like for the modern woman (perhaps not just settling for baggy boxers and tees?). All within a two month window, Ashley started business school, got pregnant, and decided to start a business. And the next four years were a whirlwind of becoming a mom, managing a fast-growing business and team, and getting comfortable with understanding who she is (and is not) as a person.

This convo with Ashley is imbued with so much realness and honesty.

We talk about…

  • The “obligation” and dilemma for working mothers
  • Why Ashley made the decision to sacrifice spending time with her kids while they’re younger as she’s building and growing her business
  • Learning how to prioritize from a place of overwhelm and burn-out
  • How envisioning her life like a pie graph helps her prioritize
  • Owning who you really are as a business owner and as a leader
  • Why getting started was the scariest and most difficult part
  • How the questions get bigger but the fear gets smaller the further you get into business

 

WHO IS ASHLEY MERRILL?

Ashley Merrill is the CEO and Founder of Lunya, bringing a unique problem-solving approach to designing sleepwear for the modern woman. With a BA and MBA from UCLA Anderson, Ashley is committed to Lunya being a vehicle for positive change - utilizing her background in tech & investing to build a successful and rapidly growing fashion brand with a deeper mission. Beyond building Lunya, Ashley is deeply involved in Girls Inc., where she serves as a board member, and she also works to invest in other female run businesses. She currently resides in Santa Monica CA with her husband and two children.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

We’ve all been there (maybe you’re there right now). You want growth and you want it now. All the money, all the clients, all the notoriety. And for some, that explosive growth happens soon after starting their business. For others, it doesn’t. And that’s not always a bad thing. In this convo, I sat down with Marva Goss, a brand and content strategist for female creatives, to talk about the slow growth she experienced after launching her business and how when she looks back now, she can see how that was a refining process for her as a business owner.

We talk about:

  • How long it took for her to get her first paying client
  • Why she’s grateful for the slow growth she experienced
  • How she felt during the that period of slow growth
  • Why she stuck with it even when the growth was slow
  • Why she doesn’t share her numbers publicly and why she doesn’t like using that as a marketing tool

I sat down with Kelsa Dickey, a financial coach who helps individuals, couples, and small business owners master their personal finances, to talk money blocks. What are they? How do you figure out what yours are? And how Kelsa has dealt with them as a financial coach.

We talk about …

  • How to figure out what your money blocks are
  • How money blocks can hold us back without us even being consciously aware of them
  • Kelsa’s money block that was influenced by becoming a parent
  • Why charging clients for your services is actually benefiting both you and your clients

 

WHO IS KELSA DICKEY?

After receiving a bachelor's degree in finance and a MBA in accounting, she worked as a Financial Adviser and a corporate accountant but found that neither of these jobs allowed her to help people with the personal finances on a one-on-one level. She decided to leave corporate America and start Fiscal Fitness Phoenix from the ground up before "Financial Coach" was even a word.  Over the course of helping thousands of people 'take the stress out of money' she has developed, The Fiscal Fitness Phoenix Budgeting Method.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

I had another conversation yesterday with another friend who’s asking herself, “Do I close the business and go find another job?” And it got me thinking … about closing my first business, how we’ve been building businesses for years, and why I’ve been doing things differently this second time around. So, I’m sharing about this belief that we must pour all of ourselves into building a business, why that’s not the only way, and how I’ve approached my second business in a different way.
