Do you ever feel like your to-do list is unending? Do you get to the end of each day feeling like you didn't accomplish as much as you wanted to accomplish? Do you find yourself juggling way too many things at the same time?

This episode is for you if you've ever asked yourself questions like:

  • Am I good enough?
  • Who am I to try to tackle this big goal?
  • Do I really think I can pull this off?

In this week's episode, you'll meet the amazing Julie Burton, the founder of ModernWell: a woman-centered collaborative space connecting work, life, creativity, and wellness that opened January 2nd, 2018, in Minneapolis. She is a freelance writer, blogger, teacher co-founder of the Twin Cities Writing Studio, a yoga instructor, wife and mom of four. She is the author of The Self-Care Solution—A Modern Mother’s Essential Guide to Health and Well-Being (She Writes Press 2016).

Julie's episode is one of the most vulnerable, authentic interviews I've ever recorded. She truly opened up about her personal journey toward entrepreneurship and the roles that fear and self-doubt have played along the way. 

Beyond that, she talked about the way her relationship with other women has evolved over her lifetime. I know this is something that we can all relate to. 

I am absolutely thrilled for you to meet Julie Burton!

How many times per day do you use the word 'fine?' "How are you?" "I'm fine." "How's work?" "Oh, it's fine." "How was your weekend?" "It was fine."

Talk about settling for mediocrity! What happened to GREAT?!

This week, you're going to meet Stephanie Seferian, the woman behind the blog Mama Minimalist

In her 20's she acquired two graduate degrees and taught English Literature to high school students. However, she had her first daughter in 2014 and experienced an internal crisis! She just wasn’t passionate about teaching. She left the classroom shortly after.

Stephanie dabbled in other interests: she taught group fitness classes. she wrote a novel. she seriously considered starting a dog-walking business.

But none of these things lit her up. They were all just fine.

Then one day she bought a domain name on impulse and started a blog centered around her love of simple, sustainable living.

The blog, Mama Minimalist, has snowballed in something bigger than she ever could have imagined. At its inception, Mama Minimalist was just Stephanie in front of her computer. Today, it is a hub for like-minded women dedicated to slowing down and fully experiencing the one life we have all been gifted.

What is YOUR inner rumble? You know, that idea or goal that just won't leave you alone. That thing that you want to do or try that you just can't get out of your head.

We'll dive into that very topic this week with Lisa Brouwer of Full Throttle Living. After 22 years of sales and leadership experience in corporate America, Lisa traded her high heels for Harley boots and her briefcase for saddlebags. She now travels a high-octane highway; empowering individuals and organizations to kick their potential into high gear.

Talk about my kind of person!

We'll dive into her story, and she'll share with us the 5-minute exercise she did a few years ago that changed the trajectory of her life forever. She'll also talk about her experience traveling coast-to-coast on her Harley Davidson motorcycle to retrace the steps of 2 courageous women who made the trip in 1915. Wow, right?!

I can't wait for you to meet Lisa Brouwer!

Are you ready to start living your life without so much fear holding you back?

In this episode, I invite you to take the first step.

So many of us move through our day, allowing life to happen to us. We mindlessly make decisions about who to spend our time with and what to spend it doing. Meanwhile, the things we truly want to do sit idly by. 

It's time to start living with more intention so that you live each day to the fullest. 

It's time to start to live like your life depends on it...because it does.
