18. The Answer to Finding Answers: Pausing to Listen
When we're pursuing answers, sometimes we forget the most obvious solution to trying to hear past all the noise to get to our answer: listening. This super short episode provides some food for thought about the practice of posing questions and listening for answers, and suggests the answers you're searching for are either coming your way when you take a moment to listen for them or are already accessible to you now; you just have to get quiet for a moment to hear them. The last episode, Episode 17, "How to Process and Perform a Version of Self-Therapy," went into depth about how to mindfully use practices that help you find answers within yourself, and this episode includes another layer of how to practically and simply find answers you're seeking when you feel directionless and are looking for guidance. And, as a bonus, you get to enjoy the frog in my throat! I think I'll name it Croakers.

14. Money Mindset & Ballin' on a Budget
Sometimes we forget the life of our dreams, or really, the lifestyle of our dreams, costs a monetary amount. But it does! Then, when we remember that, sometimes we feel icky for wanting more money and thus -- womp -- never get any more of it. This episode will teach you how to upgrade your money mindset now so that your dreams and how you'll fund your dreams are as easy to grasp as the goal-setting portion of what you want for your future. You'll also learn that, as I'll tell you now, your vision for your future should be ballin' and you should feel empowered to start living as the best version of yourself today, but remember that the wallet of your future isn't quite yet filled to the extent it will be, though we'll talk about how to keep it (and yourself!) open to receiving more monetarily as the best version of yourself. We'll also debunk the myths about how wanting money and having money are bad or evil -- in fact, it's quite the opposite! Find out why by tuning in.
