Casey Davidson “Post-Alcohol Transformation”

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Casey Davidson is a Professional Life Coach and host of the extremely popular “Hello Someday” podcast. She’s a wife and mom who spent 20 years climbing the corporate ladder while holding on tightly to her love of red wine. Like me, Casey specializes in working with women with full calendars and overflowing to-do lists, who are doing all the things and drinking to forget all the things.

Casey shares her own story of finding freedom from alcohol and all that was possible for her after she left wine behind.  She explains how so many of the reasons she thought she needed to drink were just problems caused by the drinking itself. 

Casey and I discuss our personal post-alcohol transformations and discuss why so many of our clients seem to embark on similar transformative journeys after alcohol -- including a newfound ability to live a life in accordance with their personal values and an incredible injection of energy...

What To Do When It Feels Too Hard

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

In today's episode, I share some of my best advice around how to make positive change (in any area of your life or wellness) when it feels too hard.

Our default is to just try harder, but that almost always leads to failure, because we are trying the wrong way. 

I provide five specific strategies for how to “try different, not harder”, including how to identify and replace the beliefs that are keeping you stuck, how to remind your brain and body it can do hard things, and how the easy days can provide the lessons you need to get through the tough ones better. You can apply everything in this episode to any area of personal growth you’re working on, from your parenting style to social media habits to your relationship with alcohol!

Amy Risley, CEO of Skinfix on the Myth of “Doing It All”

Watch the podcast episode, above, or listen, below!

Amy Risley built a flourishing skincare line now sold exclusively in Sephora stores across North America, but that success came at a price.

With great honesty, Amy shares her biggest regrets and lessons learned as an incredibly busy female entrepreneur and mom of two teens and provides some sage advice to other working moms.

Amy and I discuss Amy’s personal burnout story, the impact of the pandemic on Amy’s balance, and the surprising gifts working from home for the last year has afforded her, including a shift in her relationship with alcohol and unbroken quality time with her children after years of constant traveling for work. 

I loved talking with Amy - we had an easy flow and a lot of shared perspective on women in business and the myth of "doing it all". I think you'll really enjoy this conversation!

Christina’s Story - Finding Freedom from Food & Alcohol

 

Watch the podcast episode, above, or listen, below!

This is my first of (I hope!) many client interview episodes. I think you'll love Christina's story as much as I have loved being part of it!

At the young age of 12, when she realized she needed a size bigger pair of pants than her friend, Christina started down a lifelong path of dieting, weight loss, weight gain, and body shame.

Exhausted and physically unwell, she reached out to me one year ago, at the end of her rope and ready to try different, not just harder. My holistic approach to healthy change was something she’d never tried before, but by embracing curiosity and self-compassion, Christina was able to achieve her goal of true freedom from food. She felt so great, she then tackled her unhealthy relationship with alcohol.

Constant thoughts of food and alcohol no longer consume her, and she’s loving how present and joyful she feels in all aspects of her life. In this episode, Christina...

Ask the Coach - Rethinking Resolutions

 

 Watch the episode, above, or listen, below!

 

Why do so many resolutions fail? I answer this question and provide several options for “rethinking your resolutions” this year and setting yourself up for lasting success.

What might happen if you set goals around how you wanted to feel, instead of what you wanted to do?

Or stacked one small habit on top of another, instead of reaching for that extreme “quick fix” solution?

If you’ve made resolutions year after year, with little to no permanent results, this podcast episode is for you! Try different this year, not harder.
