In this episode, I chat with a good friend, Luc Tenthorey, who is a founding partner of a Philadelphia-based design engineering company called Oat Foundry.
Luc’s biz story is a really unique one about six friends with a strong bond and powerful level of trust that carried them through years of struggle in their business.

We talk about the twists and turns of being a business founder along with the mental and emotional waves that accompany that and all of life.
Plus, we get into the deep stuff about mental and emotional states and the path we go through with rejecting things in ourselves that we didn’t like about our parents.
All of this, plus:
💪 Getting to the point where you can say ‘no' to opportunities, and learning what your niche is by doing everything and all things in the beginning.

Do you give up prematurely and fall short of hitting the goals or dreams you deeply desire?
Most times the pleasure, happiness or outcome we seek is through the experience we face, not somewhere else! Lots of times, you may be giving up before hitting the gold you are already sitting on top of…you just gotta dig for it.
In this episode, we go deep into what holds us back from realizing our dreams.
Alexa admits, she was a perpetual starter at times. She started, abandoned, started over, quit, and avoided the deep hard work that would lead her to what she actually wanted. Much of it was because of a lack of skills, awareness, and commitment; not that she was necessarily doing the wrong thing. We go into all of this, and more:
⌚️ How to accept the inevitable TIME it will take to reach your goals and dreams.
🌱 Your dreams are like a seed: How can you water them so they actually grow, not die?
🍌 Your purpose has layers, like an onion: How can you tell if it’s time to peel back more layers and dive deeper or quit?
🤾♀️ Most things you want in life are about skill acquisition, not that you can’t do it or aren’t meant for it.
🏔 How to overcome our shit and our stories to get from where we are to where we want to be.
✔️ Knowing what you don’t want AND what you want and why both are powerful for things to get better and better in your life.
In this episode, Alexa chats with Taylor of the @happydocpodcast about emotions & feelings. Taylor is a psychiatrist who was exhausted and depressed in medical school when he decided to start ‘The happy Doc’ podcast to help create happy, thriving doctors. In this episode, Taylor and Alexa share their personal journey with feelings & emotions and discuss why we humans don’t understand what feelings/emotions are, how to begin to understand them, and tools to work with your feelings and process them.
We were not taught or educated at all about emotions and feelings (unless you were apart of a minority of people who’s family did teach them this). Because of this, we have grown up to be separated and confused about emotions and feelings, thus trying to run from them and repress them. We simply don’t understand them. Yet, they are A PART Of the human experience, just like needing to eat food and drink water to stay alive. There’s no escaping our emotions or feelings, so we must first learn what they even are, then what they mean, and then how to process them and work with them.
Emotions are tools, navigation systems, and alerts guide and notify us of things.
Every feeling and emotion on the spectrum are NORMAL. You are not crazy or abnormal for having them, no matter how intense.
How we chase the ‘good’ feelings and disown the ‘bad’ ones, but chasing and repressing are equally as challenging and unhealthy.
How our families and upbringing influenced how we learned to deal with our feelings & emotions.
Repression of emotions and feelings leads to many physical health issues and illnesses.
You are not doomed: Emotions can be learned and emotional intelligence is a skill that can be developed.
Tools to understand challenging emotions and process what you’re feeling.

Life after school and college can be challenging to navigate. Do I get a job? Do I travel? I don't want a 9-5, what do I do?
In this episode, learn some ways to navigate the confusion of the post-college terrain; from finding a job you actually vibe with to building skills that actually matter. This episode is permission for you to go on the crazy ride of trying, failing, searching and seeking versus settling because your parents, guilt, or confusion makes you get and stay in job you hate.
Focus on yourself first: Your self awareness, your personal development, becoming a better person, becoming better communicator. Find out what you like by trying a lot of different things. Seek out new people and friend groups. Prioritize your health, wellbeing and find out who you are, more so than focusing on your professional life and what you want to do.
Don’t go get a job just to get job. Get the job if you really want to do that job and you see it as a growth opportunity; not just to fill a void in your life. If you do get a job, keep on developing yourself in the process; not settle into the job as if it’s the grand finale. Get a job working for someone you admire and are pumped to learn from.
Acquire different skills, especially SALES and NEGOTIATION SKILLS! Because life and business and work is about providing a solution to the end user, and sales skills will help you do that and solve problems.

Are you someone that struggles with jealousy in your relationship?
Do you take it personally knowing your significant other is attracted to other men/women?
Do you want to let this go and finally feel more secure, and for this to even make your relationship better?
Then this is the episode for you.
Sometimes, when our partner is attracted to others we can feel threatened or jealous, leading to berating and shaming them. When these reactions lead to making our partner feel like they did something wrong for being attracted to other people, it puts a wedge in the relationship. You get less of what you want (attraction and love), and more of what you don’t want (separation and fear) of loss).
Attraction is about energy; it’s not personal.
There is nothing wrong with feeling attraction to others, in fact, it's completely normal.
In this episode, we will dive into this, and share what’s really going on so you can feel empowered, not threatened, by this in your own relationship.

Welcome Episode #1 of the Epic As F*ck! Podcast: Losing the Sexual Spark. Oh yes, we're diving right in real deep.
In this episode, we discuss a challenge most couples are faced with in relationship: Losing the sexual spark that was once there during the beginning of the relationship. This is a turning point in any relationship: Do we run into this challenge and decide the relationship is over, only to break up and then later repeat the same pattern in the next relationship? Or, do we commit to growing through the challenge together so we can experience deeper intimacy and connection on the other side?
Your host Alexa and her partner Dave get real and raw in real-time about their recent experience with losing the sexual spark in their relationship. They discuss what they had to realize in order to overcome this. They share what they learned about the healthy and unhealthy masculine and feminine energies in a relationship that can either repel or attract your partner. They shared what they discovered about sexual tension in a partnership and where it even comes from.
You will learn about how and when we develop these unhealthy ‘masks’ (childhood, trauma, stress, etc.), how to become aware of when you are putting a mask on within the relationship, and how to help yourself and your partner into their healthy expression.
Also discussed is how women and men can cultivate more of their healthy feminine and masculine energies; especially how women can facilitate their feminine while being in their healthy, achieving masculine. We even discuss some of the triggers that will immediately emasculate a man and cause him to put on his unhealthy mask to protect himself.
There are actionable tools, resources, and communication strategies sprinkled throughout the episode for you to immediately apply to your own life and relationship.
