EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“You can do any job for the rest of your life. But if you are not happy. If you are not fueled in your relationships. If you are not feeling like a health, happy and alive version of yourself, what is the f*cking point?”


This is a long time coming request for an episode that I’m SO freaking excited to share with you all. So many of you ask me how I started my business, had the courage to quit my day jobs and dive into entrepreneurship and how I make it work.

So today, I dish.

The good, the bad, the unexpected and all the in betweens.

‘Cause the entrepreneur life is a MF rollercoaster. It has opened up so many incredible doors for my life and I could not imagine living my life any other way now that I’m in it, but there were years when I thought it for sure wasn’t for me (and still days where I just wanna throw my hands up in the air and go f*ck it, I’m done).

But the honest truth of it is? This path has helped me uncover my purpose in life and today, I share my story and the jumping off pieces that you can use in your own life to figure out WTF your purpose (or multiple purposes? plural? who knows?) are on this planet.

You ready? Here we go.


Episode #48: Using The Enneagram as a Tool For Self Awareness with Sarajane Case

PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (12).png

To kick off a new month, we’re deep diving into everything get to know yo’ self because, let’s be honest, through all the mess that life brings, we can move further and further away from who we truly are, deep down.

One of the ways I love deep diving into getting to know myself in a deeper meaning is through personality tests and when I really took a deep dive into the Enneagram this past fall, I knew I needed to bring on an Enneagram expert to dish all the goods. And that’s why I’m SO excited to introduce Sarajane Case to the podcast today!

Sarajane Case is a writer, coach and speaker based in Asheville, NC. She's the creator of the Brave Collective - a membership community for people who want to create the life of their dreams from right where they are! She's the founder of Enneagram & Coffee and host of both Brave Radio & The Enneagram & Coffee Podcast!

Here are some things we discuss in today’s episode:

  • What the enneagram is and how Sarajane got into it

  • What makes the enneagram different from other personality tests

  • Embracing your shadow side

  • Using the enneagram as a tool for self awareness, deeper understanding of your partner and even bringing it into your work

  • An overview of the 9 types

  • How to use this tool as a way to grow and love ourselves more

  • How different types work together

  • Answering listener questions from our facebook community

  • Using the enneagram in business

  • How our types impact how we show up in the world and how we are perceived

Episode #42: Owning Your Full Potential and Facing Your Upper Limits | A Solo Episode

PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (36).png

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“It could envision myself having these dreams and hitting these goals, and really embodying my full potential as a human being. I could see her and she felt so freaking close. And then I got scared. And I immediately pulled back into my hole and thought 'I can’t do that. I can’t be that person.’”


Have you ever been afraid of being successful?

Of standing in your unapologetic truth?

It can be so terrifying to rise up into our full potential. And so often, we let that fear hold us back from taking any action and instead, we tell ourselves why we’re not good enough and self sabotage from moving in that direction.

I had an unexpected experience with this this week that threw me for a loop in ways I didn’t anticipate. And holy shiz balls did I hit that upper limit ceiling around the prospect of owning my full potential — because I finally had clarity around what that could look like this weekend and it scared the living crap out of me.

More in this week’s episode my loves.

" Women would talk about it together but we kept it to ourselves. And I reached a point where I'm not afraid of who is willing to hire me and who isn't.
