Episode 35: Celebrating Season One

ep35-season-finale

Can you believe?! This week, we’re celebrating our season one season finale!

We’ve had an incredible first season. 35 episodes. 2 bonus episodes. Guests ranging from floral designers to coaches, website designers to craniosacral therapists. It’s a bittersweet moment, chock-full of gratitude and I’m-going-to-miss-y’all feels.

This week, in our season finale, I’m looking back over our first season together to share my top 5 takeaways from sharing a creative project that, quite frankly, felt scary and uncertain and brave - and oh-so-important.

I’m also sharing...

  • What I knew before starting the podcast - and what you need to know before starting a creative process of your own
  • What intention, support, and sheer gumption have to do with getting your work into the world
  • What you can expect during our summer hiatus - and where you can find me during the break
  • Why we’re changing things up for Season Two of the podcast - and I’m spilling the beans about a major change that you’ll see, starting this summer

Don’t forget to check out the links I mention in this episode of the pod:

Episode 34: Lasting Success Part III

ep34-lasting-success-part-3

Holy cow, y’all! We’re just one episode away from our season finale!

This week, we’re closing out our 3-part series on lasting success with Part Three, all about the only strategy that works.

Yep, I said it. The only strategy that works. It might be bold to say, but stay with me here, friends.

The only strategy that works is this: do the brave thing, and then do the brave thing again.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing:

  • Why - if creative entrepreneurship is a trek - bravery is the journey
  • How fear holds us back and keeps us stuck from doing the big, brave thing - and how it shows up in our lives and businesses
  • Just some of the ways that I’ve seen bravery show up in our brands and businesses
  • Why bravery rarely feels like bravery in the moment
  • Why bravery is key to lasting success
  • My three-step process for getting your big, bold, brave thing out into the world

I think it might just be my favorite episode yet. Listen in.

Can't-miss announcements and links!:

See you back here next week for our season finale!

Episode 33: Lasting Success Part II

ep33-lasting-success-part-2

This week on the podcast, we’re continuing our 3-part series on lasting success with Part Two, all about self-care, support, and how to create a care plan for your life and business.

In it, I share about…

  • Why creative entrepreneurship is, as cheesy as it sounds, a journey - and why self-care & support are essential elements for the road ahead
  • Why self-care can be so challenging, especially for entrepreneurs with big, audacious dreams
  • How to create a support system that gets you
  • Why pro-active - or preventative - self-care is so key to your lasting success
  • How to create a self-care & support plan in case of emergency

Plus, I’ve created a free PDF care plan guide so that you can create a care plan of your own. Click here to download!

Don’t forget to snap a photo of your care plan and tag me on Facebook and Instagram! I’d love to support you in your journey to lasting success.

Doing this work alone isn’t easy, friend. That’s why I always suggest having a soul-friend (the kind who knows your heart), coach, mentor, or therapist to walk with you as you step out in courage and navigate the journey.

If that person is me (and I’d be so honored to help you get your desperately needed work into the world), this month, there are just two more spaces available in A Braver Brand, my signature 1:1 mentorship.

In it, I’m talking all about...

  • Why we need to talk about lasting success - and why defining success for yourself is so essential
  • The three big building blocks to lasting success - and why we start with your superpowers
  • Why we need to pack and plan for the journey ahead
  • Why it’s so difficult for us to articulate, own, and celebrate our greatest gifts - and why it’s so important that we do
  • The four steps to naming and claiming your creative superpower

Episode 31: Caitlin Lyon on What Brain Science Tells Us About Deep Transformation

amplify-caitlin-lyon

This month, we’re shaking things up, friend! Rather than my typical first-Tuesday solo episode, I wanted to share one of my favorite conversations to date. Next week, I’ll be back with a three-part solo series all about lasting success. And then, in our last episode of the season, I’ll be sharing what you can expect from season two - and some of my biggest lessons from our first season together.

This week, I’m welcoming one of my closest friends - and one of the most brilliant and wholehearted humans that I know - to the podcast to talk all about what neuroscience is revealing about how to make lasting and sustainable change.

Caitlin Lyon is a craniosacral therapist, writer, teacher, and therapeutic body-worker based out of Solvang and Santa Barbara, California. I joke with her all the time that she’s lived a thousand lives. She’s been a yoga teacher, documentary photographer, artist, retreat facilitator, and more - and she’s only 31 (this month!).

In this episode, she shares all about the “triune brain” and how modern research is showing us the power of sensory and somatic - or body-based - therapy in creating lasting changes to our feelings, thoughts, and experience.

As a neuroscience geek, I got to nerd out - and as a believer in depth and our body’s innate wisdom, I got to learn how the research can help me be a better business owner, coach, mentor, partner, and friend.

Listen in.
