Kelly Rutherford on Shifting Our Perspective Towards Joy and Choosing Grace

August 25, 2020

Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday!

On the podcast this week is Kelly Rutherford. Kelly is best known for her work as an actor, starring in Gossip Girl, Melrose Place, Dynasty and Pretty Little Liars, but truly it’s her soul, perspective, and kindness that sets her apart.

In today’s episode, we chat about:

  • The power of shifting our perspective towards joy and empowerment, the questions about joy we all need to ask, and children as our teachers.
  • Kelly shares the connection between spirituality and creativity, how we can take our power back by seeing the good, appreciating others, looking for the joy,  choosing gratitude, and allowing ourselves grace.
  • Plus, we have a wonderful conversation about learning to trust and allow, making ourselves happy first and looking within, her biggest dream, and so much more!

The Power of Storytelling - Episode 32

August 13, 2020

Welcome back to The Power of Storytelling!

Helene and Veronica - thank you for sharing your stories, your words, and your journey with all of us.

This month’s episode reminded me that our choice to live our message is healing, empowering, courageous, and the source of so much joy. When we believe and honor in ourselves, our choices, and our hearts - we can inspire and empower others to do the same. There is always a reason behind what we experience, and there is always an opportunity to transform our experiences into something more.

It’s truly my honor to share the stories and provide the space here to share a little bit more about the women behind these words. I encourage you to check out Helene and Veronica after you listen to this week’s new episode.

Lessons in Knowing Our Worth Beyond Productivity with Nicole Swartz

Lessons in Knowing Our Worth Beyond Productivity with Nicole Swartz

August 11, 2020

Nicole Swartz joins us to share a lesson she’s learned about knowing our worth beyond how productive we are, in both her career and personal life, the growth that came from this experience, and the joy she’s found. Her reflections, honesty, and vulnerability will leave you feeling inspired, and remind you that we are so much more than the businesses we build, the promotions we do or don’t receive, and how successful we might appear from the outside. What matters is who we are, and not what we achieve.

Nicole Swartz is an attorney for women business owners. She helps women start and grow their business with formation, contracts, trademarks, copyrights, and funding. Nicole is featured as an expert in Forbes, the Washington Post, Girlboss, and at events like Alt Summit, Craftcation, and SXSW. She lives in Austin, TX with her husband and two pitbull rescues, Gator and Russell.
