Cowgirl Confessions

Cowgirl Confessions

By Dakota Dawn Johnson
Sharing the wonderfully wild & western life stories of cowgirls from all walks of life. We’ll talk about the highs, the lows and everything in between when it comes to navigating careers, cowboys, kids & cattle. If you’re into wet saddle blankets, talks with God, buckets full of laughter– and the life lessons learned in the process- kick off your boots and settle in. I pray these stories encourage, empower, and give you just the “leg up” you need. Here’s to embracing the COWGIRL STATE OF MIND- no matter how wild & western life may get along the way. Hosted by Dakota Dawn Johnson.

Season 3: Ep 45- Progress Over Perfection
For years, I've heard people talk about the phrase "Progress Over Perfection". I've saved quote posts, read blogs & books and listened to many podcasts on the topic. However, it was rare when I actually heard someone sharing how they walked the walked not just talked the talked when it came to embracing this POP saying. The people who actually took the time to share what it looked like to embrace this way of thinking & walking it out their lives (be it home life, in their profession or learning a new skill) were the ones I learned from the most. By hearing their stories, I imagined specific areas of my life that I could embrace that POP mentality & courageously do the same.  Progress Over Perfection was my word (ok three words) for the year in 2021. It was the phrase I reminded myself of & drew my focus back to day in and day out.  On this episode, I share what 2021 looked like for me as I walked the walked with my focus on Progress Over Perfection, what I learned from leaning into this idea & how the growth I experienced in 2021 helped me identify my word for 2022- CADENCE.  I also share on this episode the new format for 2022 that you can expect to see from the Cowgirl Confessions Podcast.  ***************************************************************************************************************************************** INSTAGRAM: @CowgirlConfessionsPodcast EMAIL: CowgirlConfessionsPodcast@gmail.com Follow your host INSTAGRAM: @DakotaDawnJohnson FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/DakotaDawnJohnson/ WEBSITE: https://www.dakotadawnjohnson.com/ *********************************************************************************************************** Thank you for spending your time with me on the Cowgirl Confessions podcast.

SEASON 2: Ep 35 Finding Your Princess Identity Amidst All the Worldly Titles with Casey Houlton
It's so easy to get caught up in the many responsibilities we juggle & titles we hold day in & day out. Especially titles that we've worked extremely hard to earn. I see you sister- Whether you're waking up with a smile on your face chasing white lines headed to the next rodeo, feeling lost in the mundane of washing dishes & home schooling your children, scaling the corporate ladder like a boss or somewhere in between- it's easy to lose our center of balance that truly grounds us & tells us who we are versus letting the worldly titles we hold define us. On this episode, my long time cowgirl friend, Casey Dixon Houlton of Wetumpka, AL shares her thoughts on finding our princess identity amidst all the worldly titles. Casey's heart for serving the Lord, her family & others can be heard so clearly as she shares her story of stepping out on faith, making a career change & putting the breaks on her "rodeo cowgirl days" during this particular season of life to carry out what she's been called to do.  INSTAGRAM: @the.houlton.five FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/cdhoulton & the.houlton.five.boutique TO PLUG IN WITH CASEY & LANCE FOR THEIR CHURCH SERVICE at Liberty Baptist Church in Tallassee, AL visit:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfJ_98PjRTY ********************************************************************************************************** INSTAGRAM: @CowgirlConfessionsPodcast EMAIL: CowgirlConfessionsPodcast@gmail.com Follow your host INSTAGRAM: @DakotaDawnJohnson FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/DakotaDawnJohnson/ *********************************************************************************************************** Thank you for spending your time with me on the Cowgirl Confessions podcast.

Alexa- Play Lee Greenwood's "Proud to Be an American" & Alicia Key's "This Girl is On Fire"....

SEASON 2: Ep 29 Building Success with Ariat International's CEO & Co-Founder Beth Cross
I find myself saying with each episode how special each guest is, how thankful I am for our connection and how I love the multitude of ways in which their story is making a difference in the lives of others. This week's guest is no exception. Her innovative thinking & dedication to bring the idea of performance technology & comfort to the equestrian footwear market has drastically changed both the English & Western footwear & apparel business over the last 3 decades. I've had the privilege to work under her leadership for the past eight years, and her commitment to seeing her dream come to fruition has allowed myself and many others the opportunity to pursue careers we love. Beth Cross the CEO & Co-Founder of Ariat International is an incredible wife, mother, business woman, leader & friend (just ask anyone who has gotten to spend a few minutes with her). We dive into more details on how she built success in both her personal and professional life over the years during this episode. Trust me- You'll want to keep a pen or pencil handy, as there are so many nuggets of wisdom she shares throughout our conversation.  Beth shares, "Growing up on a working horse farm in Pennsylvania, I was one of eight kids and spent my childhood surrounded by animals – horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, dogs and cats. I have a special memory of sitting in front of the TV in 1973, watching Secretariat win the Kentucky Derby. He went on to win the Triple Crown, setting records that still stand today. Secretariat’s big heart and competitive spirit were the motivations behind naming our company Ariat. Ariat was founded as “The New Breed of Boot.” We were the first to integrate athletic footwear technology into boots for equestrian athletes. Today, our world-class product team builds innovative and award-winning performance products for all types of outdoor and work environments. We are honored to be a part of your story and thank you for being part of ours." ******************************************************************************************************************************************** To learn more about Ariat International, Career Opportunities at Ariat or connect with Beth, please visit:   WEBSITE: https://www.ariat.com CAREER OPPORTUNITIES: https://www.ariat.com/careers EMAIL: beth.cross@ariat.com  **************************************************************************************************************************************** INSTAGRAM: @CowgirlConfessionsPodcast EMAIL: CowgirlConfessionsPodcast@gmail.com Follow your host INSTAGRAM: @DakotaDawnJohnson FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/DakotaDawnJohnson/ *********************************************************************************************************** Thank you for spending your time with me on the Cowgirl Confessions podcast.

SEASON 2: Ep. 22 Farm Girl Rural Boutique & General Store owner- Kenzie Ashcraft on family, faith & her NEW opportunity
Who is Kenzie Ashcraft? What has her journey as a small business owner looked like? We unpack all of that on this episode of the Cowgirl Confessions Podcast. I hope you enjoy getting to know Kenzie as much as I enjoy calling her my friend. Kenzie is a wife to her high school sweetheart and mom to two precious girls, Paisley and Scout. Some of her favorite things are team roping, a good playlist, and spending time hulled up in a cabin with a book. Kenzie's husband is a firefighter in their hometown also runs a custom hay operation with her Dad in the summers. Kenzie has also started a new project called Hayfield Meals to go along with the hay operation and has expanded her decorating gift to Interior Design. Growing up within a farming/ranching family, riding horses from the age of two, growing up in the arena and eventually going on to college rodeo for Oklahoma State, she has always loved the western industry. Kenzie's first “real” job was at a boutique when she was just 16 that birthed my love and appreciation for small mom + pop shops. Kenzie loves the heart and soul that goes into a family owned business. The community that is built from it. The first name customer basis, the friends made, and the uniqueness of items carried.

She has a unique story surrounding her journey to motherhood which includes infertility and adoption. Camile's heart for God, her family, the western lifestyle as well as what she calls "her greatest assignment" is refreshing and encouraging.

SEASON 1: Ep. 6- Taking the Jump with BW Braiding owner Britten Wallace
On this episode, I caught up with Britten Wallace, the owner of BW Braiding. At just 24 years old, Britten has already taken the jump from pursuing her dream as a side hustle to making the BW Braiding business her full time gig. We talk about growing up in the rodeo industry, the learning curve in owning & operating a business, horsepower and roping with your cowgirl heroes. Britten even offers a 15% off discount code for BW Braiding (that won't ever expire- how cool is that!?!), so be sure to tune in to snag that awesome code. This Oklahoma Cowgirl is a mover & shaker, and I look forward to seeing how far the Cowgirl State of Mind combined with her love for rodeo takes her.  Keep up with Britten & BW Braiding: https://bwbraiding.square.site/ INSTAGRAM: @BWBRAIDING FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/britten.wallace ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************** @CowgirlConfessionsPodcast CowgirlConfessionsPodcast@gmail.com Follow your host INSTAGRAM: @DakotaDawnJohnson FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/DakotaDawnJohnson/ *********************************************************************************************************** Thank you for spending your time with me on the Cowgirl Confessions podcast.
