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



“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.

Episode #39: What you need to know about the BRCA gene



“When you have a mutation of one of these genes, that’s when you have a significant risk of developing one of those cancers in your lifetime.”

I was so honored to share my full story about the BRCA gene and my decision to get a preventative double mastectomy later this year on my friend Jen Wille’s podcast a few weeks back and I knew I needed to share this conversation with all of you.

This is the most vulnerable I’ve felt all year. And I would not be me if I didn’t share that with you.

So here goes. Dig in, and if you have any questions about anything I talk about, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am always here for you.

Here are a few things we discuss in todays episode:

  • My one non negotiable to start my day every day

  • The power (and fear) attached to sharing stories while navigating it in real time

  • My intention word of 2018 and the irony of it all

  • The ins and outs of the BRCA gene and how it impacts women vs. men

  • Navigating the idea of having kids now

  • The options for reducing your risk when you have the gene

  • Facing things you’re absolutely terrified of head on

  • Talking about my BOOBS in detail

  • The exact surgery I’m getting
