In this episode, I want to talk about blinders and how a lot in your life can change when you put your freaking blinders on.  Comparison is a very slippery slope, it will take you off your game, and block you from using your gifts. There are people who will expand us and allow us to grow and other people that will trigger us and block us from moving.  In this episode, we discuss:  1) I continue to have conversations with clients and people who are constantly stuck in a spiral of comparison. 2) Shifting comparison starts with practicing gratitude for what you already have,...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share a quick continuation of what changed in January of 2024 and how I decided to stop writing my gratitude and feel it.  Sounds woo-woo doesn’t it, yet it has been a huge shift for me and I knew I was being called to share it with you.  In this episode, we discuss:  1) Focusing on your gratitude is more than checking a box, doing the thing, and “saying you are committed to your personal growth.”  If you are only concerned with checking a box, then you are in the process of doing more and not experiencing it. 2) A tool we learn in NLP is...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to squash a belief that we all seem to have that when things are uncomfortable we must be going the wrong way.  In this episode, we discuss:  1) Your subconscious mind is wired for safety. It is its primary #1 job.  So unknown is scary and fear is real, so how can you prime yourself that fear is just a sign that you are doing something new? 2) A belief is a thought you keep having and perceptions are a collection of beliefs, so it requires conscious interruption of your subconscious thoughts and patterns, and to interrupt the patterns and perceptions,...

In this episode, we speak with Director-Producer-Filmmaker-Podcaster-Writer-Cinematographer, Scott Homan.  Scott was raised in the fiercely DIY "Northwoods" of Wisconsin deep in the wild of the Great Lakes region. His music community created Oh The Crib! records in a house in the forest as teenagers, where they recorded two albums while being influenced by a cult. He ran camera and sound for a local news station and then went to university for photography and digital media. 

Today he runs Banana Island Films, which was born in Hanoi, Vietnam during his five years there. He directed a music scene documentary, Hanoi Mixtape, which you can watch at HanoiMixtape.com. Witness Underground is his sophomore film and a much bigger project which includes the Witness Underground Podcast, a series, "XJW Coming Out," and an artist grant. His present projects all focus on artists escaping cults, especially musicians. The proceeds from watching Witness Underground on Patreon go towards fostering new healing art through an ex-cult-member artist grant program. 

In this episode, we discuss:

1) Scott embarked on a new career, moved to the other side of the planet for 5 years in Vietnam, rebuilt his sense of self, and gained the skills to tell a cult exit story in a unique way that they’re all very proud of. 

2) Scott’s focus is to share the journey of what happens when people leave a cult, and how they now share their creative expression through their art and music.  He openly shares this journey of creating community and humanizing the experience of life after the cult without the feelings of being re-traumatized.
