EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:

"Why do we go into business with this expectation that we should have already made it to the finish line without going through the journey?"

with Lauren Frontiera

LISTEN!

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

It's episode freaking 99 (celebratory dance)!!!

And even though we're closing in on 100 episodes, I'm really just getting started with this whole biz thing.

So, in this episode, I'm sharing about my own frustrations with feeling like I need to have already "made it" when I'm just starting out.

Overnight success is BS. But the expectation that you should do just that is hella real.

So, if you're overwhelmed by these ridiculous expectations that you're putting on yourself to have already "made it" - whatever the hell that means - this is for you, boo.

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:

"I just wanted to be noticed. I didn't know that my paintings would sell to anyone."

LISTEN!

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

I think our becomings happen so gradually that we don't even notice it until we've finally bloomed. The blooming part always seems so serendipitous, too. Because we had no idea we were becoming all along.

In this episode, I sit down with Amira Rahim, a contemporary abstract expressionist painter, to hear the story of how she became an artist.

It wasn't all paint clothes and easel and painting on the side of the streets until she got her big break - I know, that's what I expected, too.

It was more law school and trying out different jobs until one simple line from a movie changed everything for her - it was that serendipitous moment of her becoming.

Amira shares about how she went from blogging about her art to working full-time as an artist, what changes when your art becomes a business, dealing with negative feedback, and getting comfortable with fear.

WHO IS AMIRA RAHIM?

Amira Rahim is a contemporary abstract expressionist painter whose work has been procured by collectors around the world, and most notably, by the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi. Amira has been featured in Ebony Magazine, The Huffington Post, Design Mom, The National, Minted and Time Out Abu Dhabi. Trained in Sociology, Amira became a full-time artist to address feelings of solitude and displacement while abroad. Through her daily art practice, she explores the possibility of intuition and spontaneity through her use of bold color, vigorous brushstrokes and whimsical composition (like this beauty). In addition to painting, Amira runs an online community, Passion Color Joy, where she guides new and seasoned artists on things from selling a first painting to developing a brand, business and website.

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:

"That's exactly what the fear made me want to do. I was paralyzed. I could not make a decision. I could not think for myself."

with Lauren Frontiera

LISTEN!

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

I had never been so overwhelmed by fear regarding my career and the work that I was doing. And honestly, it made sense. I was swimming out into unchartered territory without a life vest.

Everything changed, though, the instant I realized that fear had an opposite. And if I could somehow learn how to harness it the moment the fear showed up, I could do the all the damn things. So, heads or tails?

Well, it doesn't really matter. Just listen.

EPISODE SNEAK PEAK:

"You following the advice of somebody else over listening to your internal body wisdom - that's really a diet."

with Rachael Hartley

LISTEN!

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE:

Diet culture has deep roots that start infiltrating our lives well before we ever enter middle school. So, imagine the challenge of marketing a non-diet service (intuitive eating) to our diet-obsessed world.

It's hard.

In this episode, I sit down with Rachael Hartley, a private practice dietician and a food/wellness blogger, who's built her entire business around intuitive eating. She shares about what it is and what challenges she's faced trying to market it.

Intuitive eating is different than some fad diet. There aren't any before and after photos. And it's not about re-shaping your body.

So, how do you even begin to bulldoze through those deep diet roots? Listen to find out how.

"At the end of the day, I knew that this is what I must do. Not what I should do."

with Lauren Frontiera

LISTEN!

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE:

Not gonna lie. This is terrifying. The whole taking the leap thing. And it doesn't even matter one iota that I've taken big, terrifying leaps before. Because no amount of leaps can numb the guttural fear that comes with thrusting yourself into the unknown.

In this episode, I'm sharing about why and how I decided to go all in on the podcast - even though it's making no income right now. This is going to be fun. No, but seriously.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE:

Some of people's bravest moments are when they're sharing about the hardest parts of their stories.

In this episode, I sit down with Jessica Alonso of Quirk Creative to hear about the darkest, hardest, loneliest parts of her story. She shares about living with debilitating anxiety, losing someone to suicide, divorce, miscarriage, and the hardest trial she faced in her marriage. We also talk about her business and how it recently evolved, but the bulk of our conversation revolves around her life story.

Whatever you're struggling with right now, you're not alone. If you need that reminder, this episode is for you.

Making the decision to quit is one of the hardest decisions I've ever made.

Yet, I've made it nearly a dozen times throughout my career and entrepreneurial journey.

In this episode, I'm sharing about my own experience, the shame I felt around quitting, and how you know when it's the right time to call it quits.

So many of us experience a lot of guilt around feeling the need to justify our time and how we spend our days and how much money we're making. It's a debilitating cycle that I think a lot of entrepreneurs have found themselves in.

After having kids, though, she decided to start a new career as an artist.

She shares about the initial guilt she experienced because she wasn't doing what she, and others, thought she'd be doing now, given her background and degree. She also opens up about wondering whether what she's doing is living up to other people's expectations and the guilt the feels pursuing art and feeling like she should be doing something "more".
