Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing a message I received in my dm’s about how to shift from feeling like we’re too old for change, how the rooms aren’t meant for all of us, and that things have to stop for us because of our age.  In today’s episode we discuss: 1) What are you waiting for? What story are you telling yourself about why you have to wait for x, y or z to happen before you can start? Who says we’re too old? It isn’t coming from others, it is the message in our own head.  2) What if you are exactly where you are supposed to be? What if you are perfectly designed to...

In this episode, I am sharing some reasons for how you can use storytelling to grow your business by building authentic connections and allowing others to see and hear you. We don’t have to live the exact same stories in order to connect with others.  By allowing others to see and hear our emotions, our experiences, they can see themselves in our stories and that is what continues to build the relationships.  All business and connections are built on the backbone of relationships. In today’s episode we discuss: 1) Storytelling makes you a real, relatable human who has lessons,...

In this episode we are speaking with CEO and Founder, Alundas Haven. Alundas Havens was a Marine Corps Veteran. He endured physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and created mental barriers to keep myself “safe” from the world.  He later understood that he trapped himself into a box where he had limited beliefs and didn’t understand simple life concepts. The Marine Corps allowed him to find his tribe and excel but when he had a freak injury that too took a toll on his mental well being.  He had to leave what he was good at and searched for what was next, as a Veteran it’s...

In this episode, I am sharing a very personal story, an experience and the impact it has had on me.  I have an even deeper belief and conviction that our story is meant to be left as our legacy.  In today’s episode we discuss: 1) Your story matters, the good, the hard, the messy parts, the normal, the feelings, emotions, all of it.  How can you stand in that space, remove the blocks, and lean in knowing that you can help someone else. You are perfectly designed to support the person you once were.  2) Picture it being the end of your life, what is the message, the story,...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing some thoughts about the emotions that we are experiencing and how they say more about us than we realize.  This one in particular is criticism, which is actually envy in disguise. And envy is one of the most poisonous emotions to carry. In today’s episode we discuss: 1) The definition of criticism is the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes. Criticism is the act of making judgments; analysis of qualities and evaluation of comparative worth; especially the critical consideration and judgment of someone’s...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing some of the messages and words I receive from people asking me about their story. There’s a constant theme of messages asking, “Is my story big enough”, “who’s going to care”, “is it important enough”, or “what will they think”  In today’s episode we discuss: 1) The underlying reason why people don’t share is it boils down to this constant fear of judgment, what will others think or say about your work and what you are saying? There’s also a lack of self confidence that also makes it harder to share your voice and message with the...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing some thoughts and experiences from it being March 1st and not being anywhere near where I set my goals for 2023.  I am thrilled it is March as January and February are not my fav months, but I had a moment of feeling like I am not anywhere near where I thought I would be by now.  Since I am navigating it, I am sure I am not the only one in this loop. In today’s episode we discuss: 1) The story only has the meaning that you give it. Remember your thoughts are always focused on your past or on creating your future, you get to decide what they mean. 2)...

More Episodes

In this episode, I am sharing a concept that I recently heard on a podcast about the meaning of unqualified and inexperienced.  It made me go down a rabbit hole to look at what we make our inexperience mean, and how we decide that inexperienced means that we are not qualified. 

In today’s episode we discuss:
1) We will always be inexperienced when we start something new. How can we possibly have any experience without doing the thing?

2)  There are people far less qualified than you doing the things you say you want to do simply because they believe in themselves. That belief in themselves allows them to start, to get into action, to take that first step and to become more qualified.

3) Who is setting your definition of qualified? What does it mean to be qualified? Do you think that being qualified means that you are done learning? Where are you mistaking your inexperience with not being qualified? 

4) This quote by Simon Sinek, for whatever reason, most of us don't think we can achieve something beyond what we're qualified to achieve.”  So if what we believe we are qualified is the ceiling we create for ourselves, then wouldn’t it be good to lift that ceiling and see that we are more than qualified for the things we desire and the inexperience we are judging in ourselves, is because we haven’t started yet.
