Today’s episode was inspired by a couple lessons I learned after getting some not-so-nice feedback about the podcast last week.
Receiving other’s feedback is always an opportunity for reflection.
Then comes action.
Decide what to do with this new information.
Is it valuable feedback?
Is it garbage?
Is it a little of both?
The feedback I received was a little bit of both. But it provided me with a two really valuable lessons that I’m passing along to you:
Let me know what you think about this episode. I would love your feedback.

Her newest book is The Four Tendencies. She has an enormous reader- ship, both in print and online, and her books have sold more than two million copies worldwide, in more than thirty languages.
She makes frequent TV appearances and is in much demand as a speaker. On her weekly podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin, she discusses good habits and happiness with her sister Elizabeth Craft. Rubin started her career in law and was clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor when she realized she wanted to be a writer. She lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.
I was beyond excited and honored to have Gretchen join me on the show (as evidenced by my fangirling at the beginning of the episode.) Gretchen could not have been more fun or fascinating to interview. We also clicked really well and had a lot of similarities, which made it all the more fun to pick her brain. Like she said at the end, “we could keep talking all day.” So, we are basically besties now.

Today I’m going to tell you about the least sexy C word you need to use WAY more often.
I think this C words is one of the most impactful words in your life if you put it into practice. In fact, I can see how this word assisted me in running my first 5K, my (only) marathon, and many triathlons. It is representative of how I parent daily. It has been a huge part of my success in building 3 different business platforms over the last 15 years. It truly impacts everything I do.
When I want something to stay in my life for the long haul, I commit to fully embracing this word, even when it’s not easy. This word becomes a practice unto itself.
I would say this word is one of the most powerful and impactful words in my 42 years of life. It is what keeps me showing up over and over in any area where I want to accomplish great things.
You likely need MORE of this word in your life. Every. Damn. Day.

This is Part 2 of my interview with Leslie Juvin-Acker. If you haven’t listened in to Part 1, listen to that first!
In Part 2 of this interview, Leslie dives deep with me to give me some coaching around my own experiences with money (like deep-rooted stuff from my childhood – good times). It’s a really fascinating conversation and I think you’ll learn a ton from some of the connections Leslie and I make based on my history/story.
On top of diving into my story, Leslie shares:
This was a really powerful conversation for me and I think you’ll find it really valuable as well!
How many times have you found your self admitting to indulging in a “guilty pleasure”?
Can we all get over that?
Can we simply enjoy the things that bring us joy and happiness (like long showers, dark chocolate, alone time, cheese, and Real Housewives) without connecting them to guilt?
Cause the truth is that you deserve all the chocolate (and cheese) in the world. You don’t even have to earn it. Or feel guilty about it. You can just have it. Because you’re worthy of joy and pleasure.
It’s really that simple.
Listen in to hear 5 reasons you need to stop being guilty about your pleasures.

I was so excited to talk to Leslie because I wanted to hear about so many aspects of her story and background. This conversation got so deep and involved, Leslie kindly agreed to stay with me longer than planned so we could do a 2 part interview and she could actually coach me in the second half!
Listen in to hear Leslie share:
Be sure to come back next Wednesday for Episode 198 where Leslie coaches me through my own background and experiences with money to help me see where I might be holding myself back. We dive deep into my family history with money and how that has impacted me. This is GOOD STUFF, friends. I hope you’ll enjoy hearing some of my story that I haven’t shared before!
There are 4 essential steps you need to take in order to successfully hit any goal or resolution you may be going after this year:
Some (all?) of these might be a little counterintuitive or go against the grain of what you’ve practiced in the past. That is a GOOD thing. Because doing the same old thing will only get you the same old results. Try to do things in a little different fashion this year and you might surprise the heck out of yourself when it comes to your long-term results.
Listen in to hear me dive deep into each of these and explain exactly how you can start getting more of what you really want in the new year!

I loved this conversation. Andrea and I hit it off from the moment we got on Skype together. She is brilliant and sassy – which is my favorite combination for a superstar guest. You care going some great (possibly hard) and valuable things in this conversation. Buckle up. This is not for the faint of heart.

To kick of the New Year I am making a bit of an offering to you. I want to give you my 3 wishes for you in the New Year. I especially want you to be mindful of these wishes over the next month.
I think there is a lot of pressure to DO. IT. ALL. in January and I’m inviting you to NOT.
Instead I want you to consider how three little words might impact your actions for the entire year. These three words are my wishes for you.
Listen in to hear how these words are (weirdly) intertwined and critical to your 2018.
I couldn’t be more delighted to be kicking off a new year with YOU. Cheer, friend!
