On Monday I released a podcast episode urging you to take immediate action on your big goals, even if you don't feel ready, and even if you don't know what you're doing.

Did you take my advice? Have you started? Want another example to inspire you?

In today's episode, you'll meet Lee Hersh, a woman who did just that. In fact, Lee began her blog, Fit Foodie Finds as a passion project 8 years ago, without the slightest idea of how to create blog. Not only did her passion project help her recognize and heal from her own eating disorder, but it grew into a massively successful, full-time business! 

Today, Fit Foodie Finds is a lifestyle content blog featuring healthy recipes, travel tips, and exercise programs, all with an eye toward helping people cultivate an enjoyable, balanced, healthy lifestyle. And, Lee herself has grown into a true social media influencer. Her Instagram account boasts over 134,000 followers!

We had an amazingly fun conversation! I feel like we hit all the bases, including:

  • How she started her passion project before she was ready and before she knew exactly what to do, and why you should too!
  • Why she doesn't plan too far into the future, and what she does instead.
  • What it means to be open, authentic, and vulnerable on social media...instead of curating our best moments (#nofilter).
  • The fact that you only live once, and finding a career that you enjoy is so critically important!

There is so much value in this episode, and I know you are going to love to get to know Lee Hersh!

By this point, I have interviewed dozens of inspiring women for the Women Inspired podcast, and one of the common themes I've uncovered is that they have all started big projects way before they felt ready.

Funny thing, that's exactly what I did with this podcast, and this week, we're going to recap that journey.

  • I'm going to get real and honest about how little I knew in the beginning. (SPOILER ALERT: I knew nothing. Like NOTHING!).
  • I'll also tell you about a few mistakes I made in the beginning.
  • Finally, I'll fill you in on a few changes you'll see coming in the next few weeks / months.

Ultimately, this podcast has a much broader and deeper soul than I ever anticipated in the beginning. The changes I'm making are to align the outward face of the podcast with that deep soul. As regular listeners, I wanted to openly share them with you.

Last, I'm taking the opportunity to try to express the incredible amount of gratitude I have for each of you who have listened and supported this podcast along the way. I will never be able to fully convey how much your support means to me. Thank you so much.

I hope this episode inspires you to take the first step toward that goal that is on your mind. You are so much more capable and powerful than you give yourself credit for. Just start. Start TODAY!

Why is it that everything that's healthy for us is portrayed as a "punishment" (exercise) or as some form of deprivation (healthy food)? Think about it! In this model, if you're "doing it right" you're walking around as a deprived, punished person. Who wants that?!

That being said, we all know how important it is to live a healthy lifestyle. 

The answer: balance.

This week, you're going to meet Jaime Morocco, founder of Soul Powered Wellness. We have an amazing discussion about why Jaime is so passionate about helping people achieve a balanced state of wellbeing.

Hang out until the end of the episode for a powerful take-away about the importance of loving yourself first in order to gain the passion and motivation to cultivate a healthy lifestyle. 

I can't wait for you to meet Jaime Morocco!

How many of you know someone who constantly dates the wrong type of person? Someone who doesn't treat them well. Someone who isn't kind. Or, simply, someone who just isn't a great match. 

This week, we're talking to Dr. Diana Kirschner, psychologist and best-selling author about why this pattern happens to people and how they can break the cycle.

In our interview, Dr. Diana and I talk about how our early life experiences create mental "templates" or "scripts" that set our expectations for what love should look and feel like. These templates become our relationship comfort zones, and without even knowing it, we seek out partners who conform to these templates....even if they're bad for us. Yikes!

More importantly, Dr. Diana talks to us about how to start rewriting these scripts or templates, starting with an exercise to reveal what she calls your "Diamond Self-Identity." 

SPOILER ALERT! During her interview, Dr. Diana takes me through an exercise to identify my Diamond Self-Identity. As it turns out, my Diamond Self-Identity name is "Adventurous Goddess of the Sacred and Uplifting Hunt!" 

And, as a special gift, Dr. Diana has handpicked and trained a team of awesome Love Mentor® coaches. And you can talk with one of them for free for 40 minutes by phone or Skype! If you have any pressing dating or love questions, sign up for your free session now.

Just go to http://lovein90days.com/dating-coach/ and you will be talking to a wise helpful Love Mentor® very soon!  Just say “April sent me” for VIP treatment! 

I absolutely can't wait for you to meet Dr. Diana Kirschner!

This week, we're going after the heart of the beast. We're attacking 3 giant boulders that can get in the way of you being the person you want to be:

  1. Comparison
  2. Expectations
  3. Nay-Sayers

If you've ever felt like you had to compete with other women or you find yourself in a situation where your life and experience isn't measuring up to another woman's, this episode is for you.

If you've ever gotten down on yourself because you didn't react or perform in a way that aligns to the person you are striving to be, this episode is for you.

If you've ever felt your emotional state or your confidence take a hit when other people voice their opinions about something you're doing or working on, this episode is for you.

This week you are going to meet AmyK Hutchins. AmyK is a dynamic, energetic catalyst for producing sustainable solutions to a leader’s most pressing challenges. Thousands of executives in 10+ countries have benefited from her keen insight and intuitive understanding of the issues leaders face.
