Building Community with Vulnerability and Joy with Jillian Richardson of The Joy List

October 30, 2018

Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday! On the podcast this week is Jillian Richardson, the founder of The Joy List. The Joy List is a weekly newsletter of events in NYC where you can go by yourself and leave with a friend. 

On this week’s episode Jillian shares with us her passion for building community, the inspiration behind The Joy List, and why it’s so important to create deeper connections and choose vulnerability. We chat about creating balance when everything is a “hell yes!”, developing self-worth outside of work, and reconnecting to our femininity. Plus, Jillian and I discuss the world of freelance (she’s a pretty badass ghostwriter), her newest writing venture (she’s writing a book!) and SO much more!

Intentional Media and Using Our Voice

Intentional Media and Using Our Voice

October 27, 2018

In this week’s bonus episode I share a message that is long overdue: my thoughts on intentional media, my role in it, and why it’s so important to use our voice and our vote.

This isn’t about politics. This isn’t me telling you how to vote or who to vote for. Instead, it’s about making sure that your voice is heard. This is about being intentional with our voice, our values, and our vote.

Resources to check out to make sure that you're registered and learn more about the issues on your ballot:

1) Vote Save America

2) Rock The Vote

What Are Your Go-To Emotions?

October 23, 2018

Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday!

This week's episode is a solo episode and it is jam packed with some good stuff (if I say so myself!) I'm chatting all about our go-to emotions and how to start choosing the emotions that we align with, not taking things personally, anxiety around connection and FOMO, and I'm joined by my friend Anna Cecilia of Project Babe to chat about Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

What Fuels You?

What Fuels You?

October 19, 2018

What fuels you?

What energizes you?

What gets your engine moving?

What is the motivation that gets you up in the morning?

What is the fire that gets you to create, to play, to work, to be?

What is the fuel that fuels your engine?

Up until a conversation that I had yesterday, these questions weren’t something that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. The truth is, if it weren’t for this conversation I don’t know if I would have ever thought about this.

In this week’s bonus episode I share what has been fueling my engine and what I’m now consciously choosing to fuel me instead. I also talk about the impact a conversation about all of this had on me and the challenge I was given (and it’s the same challenge I’m giving you!)
