62. Speaking Truth with Audrey Christiansen
In this episode I interview Audrey Christiansen and we get down and dirty talking about how speaking our truth, no matter the consequences, is sometimes the very most important thing you can do. Audrey shares her journey through motherhood and postpartum depression, and how learning to speak her truth that it wasn’t enough, that she needed more, set her free. We talk about the pain and discomfort she navigated to find her purpose, start her art business, and build a supportive community. And we talk about one of her most recent experiences speaking her truth, and how that resulted in her getting fired from her job. We talk about why she had to speak up, why it mattered, and why it was worth risking her family’s financial security to do so. If you’ve ever felt a nagging truth inside that you’ve been scared to honor, a truth you’ve felt you have to hide, or a truth you’ve feared to speak out loud because of the potential consequences, this episode is for you. ABOUT AUDREY Audrey Christensen is a full time artist/ homeschooling momma who believes that art heals. She loves to empower people to go after what they are passionate about and loves to help build communities where that is possible. She’s an oversharer with a big heart who spends a ton of time writing, painting and finding adventures along the way. LINKS FROM THE EPISODE Connect with Audrey on Instagram or her website.

61. Other People's Opinions with Erica Reitman
In this episode I interview Erica Reitman and we get down and dirty talking about the weight of other people's opinions...and what's at stake when we let that noise crowd out our truth. Erica shares her journey of shedding the need for approval and gaining the self-certainty to own a Zero F*cks mentality that has helped her grow her business empire. We talk about her decision to be intentionally polarizing in her business, and how sharing  her experiences with depression and not having children have caused her to lose followers in her business...but also a highly engaged community and the freedom to show up exactly who she is. As childfree women we talk about how other people have many opinions about this inherently personal decision, and how rejecting this social expectation helped us both to evict other people's opinions from our mental and emotional space. She also shares the her top suggestion for how to honor your truth, hone your confidence, and strengthen your self-trust. If you spend a lot of time worrying about what other people think about you, trying to control your image, worrying about being rejected for your truth, this episode is for you.  ABOUT ERICA:  Erica Reitman is a biz mentor for tell-it-like it is coaches who are ready to grow their online empires...especially while saying "fuck."

60. F*ck Your SMART Goals
In this episode I'm calling out the gold standard of goal-setting: SMART goals...and why they're not so smart for actual humans. First we explore my philosophy on goals, and how it's different than the way that most people think about their goals. Then we dive deep into poorly formed goals, and why I include SMART goals in this category. Lastly, I provide a 4 step goal setting process that works WITH human motivation and your humanity rather than against it. If you've struggled: with not hitting goals in the past; with being all in and then all out, losing your motivation or focus;  or have a love-hate relationship with goals (or stopped setting them altogether) this episode is for you.  LINKS FROM THE EPISODE:  The Ambitious Women's Collective Facebook group    Book a free consult to determine if 1:1 coaching with Dr. Dee is right for you and your ambitious goals.

58. Hunger for Sustainability with Anne Dunaway
In this episode I interview Anne Dunaway and we get down and dirty talking about sustainability, at every level. We begin with talking about the need to balance our relentless drive with boundaries, focus and honoring our needs - to create sustainable ambition. Anne identifies the question that changed everything for her - that led her to leave the corporate hamster wheel to drive community change. She shares how her experience with food insecurity led her to use her agricultural knowledge and skills to tackle hunger, poverty, climate change. We explore how sustainability starts at the individual level, it strengthens communities. And she drops some truth bombs about the problematic shifts in agriculture, the myth of food scarcity, and how big agriculture chooses profits over people.

57. Actually, I Can!
In this episode we are talking about the need for self-belief and the only reason why it’s lacking. Most people know what and how to achieve their goals. The heart of what’s stopping you is lack of belief - belief that you can, that it’s possible, that you can grow and become the person who achieves the goal. “Actually I can” is the belief in possibility, in recognizing and honoring your self-efficacy. Just because you have doubts, just because you think you can’t doesn’t mean it’s true…and it doesn’t even mean there’s a problem. Instead, I explain how to wrangle this doubt and build the earth-shaking, unstoppable belief “Actually, I can…and I will.” LINKS FROM THE EPISODE: Grab the Actually, I Can Journal.

56. Revolutionary Wealth with Molly Berger
In this episode I interview Molly Berger and we get down and dirty talking about wealth - and how the financial system is largely underrepresented. We dive deep on financial literacy, money shame, and gendered practices that wealth out of the hands of women, POC and LGBTQIA+. Molly shares her journey that led her to work in the financial industry, and her mission to put the “revolutionary in fiduciary.” She offers insights for how we can change our relationship with money and begin building wealth — and not when, but now. She tackles the far too common top belief that hurts rather than helps our financial security. And we plead the case for why the world needs more money in the bank accounts of underrepresented communities (pssst having money won’t turn you into a bad person). If you’re ready to drop money shame, financial struggle, and shitty money beliefs, this episode is for YOU. ABOUT MOLLY:  Molly Berger is a lifelong feminist, activist and change-agent, and passionate about helping marginalized communities with financial literacy. She specializes in working with women, BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities, as well as, entrepreneurs, self-employed individuals and artists, and crafting comprehensive financial plans. She spent much of her career in nonprofit sector, followed by years with mission-driven startups and entrepreneurs, serving a variety of financial related roles. After earning degrees from Whittier College and then Claremont Graduate University and starting her career, Molly returned to her hometown of Denver CO and started her planning practice there. Her goal is to make financial planning an approachable, non-judgmental experience as she believes all of us deserve a financial plan regardless of income, assets or backgrounds.

55. How to Be an Effective Giver (SYWTBAH Pt 3)
This episode is the last of three in a series of podcasts I’m calling “So you want to be a helper” (SYWTBAH). In the previous episodes we talked about selflessness (#51) and self denial (#53).  Here we dive into the full spectrum of giving and explore the less commonly known and practiced form of giving that doesn’t leave us burnt out, overwhelmed, depleted or resentful. I bust a harmful belief that traps us into unsustainable giving, built upon selflessness and self-denial.  I offer a checklist for evaluating your current giving style and steps to give without sacrificing yourself and your wellbeing in the process. I even tackle some of the most common objections I hear as a coach for changing our selfless giving habits. If you're a helper who prides herself in that role, but also struggles with people-pleasing, feelings of under-appreciation for all that you do and frustration of people's demands and entitlement, listening to this episode should be non-negotiable.

54. Turning Anger into Action with Tansy McNulty
In this episode I interview Tansy McNulty and we get down and dirty talking about finding the courage to tackle complex systemic issues. She shares her journey to the decision to start and lead 1 Million Madly Motivated Moms - a movement uniting Black Moms to fight and end police brutality by 2038. We talk about how she found the motivation to overcome her former people pleasing ways and fight for the safety of her children and her community, while maintaining mental health as priority #1. Tansy explains how she’s using her knowledge, skills, and experience to combat police violence, one powerful step at a time. If you’ve felt anger and wondered how to channel it into social change, this episode is for you. ABOUT TANSY: Tansy McNulty is a BoyMom, active duty military spouse and the Founder of 1M4 (AKA 1 Million Madly Motivated Moms). Tansy's background is in Supply Chain Management with expertise in Logistics & Procurement operations. But at her core, she's a problem solver who simply wants to save lives and create a more equitable justice system. 1M4 empowers Black Moms to end police brutality through legislative policy, financial assistance to impacted families, and encouraging the next generation of Black youth to pursue roles in criminal justice & politics. Moms have given birth to the solutions for our community’s most pressing issues. So 1M4 seeks to protect & propel those solutions to reach their fullest potential. This type of activism and organizing requires that Moms protect their greatest weapon in the fight... their mental health. 1M4 is here to give Moms a place to air their frustrations with recurring police violence, create solutions that have measurable impact, and prioritize their mental health to maintain peace of mind despite the chaos of inequality. The African proverb holds true "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." 1M4 is uniting Black Moms to do just that, go the distance in the fight for justice... Together.

53. Self-Denial (SYWTBAH Part 2)
This episode is the second of three in a series of podcasts I’m calling “So you want to be a helper” (SYWTBAH). In the previous episode we talked about selflessness (#51) and the next episode is all about how to be an effective giver (#55). We're taking a deep dive into the all too common practice of self-denial which selflessness is built upon. It’s leaving us chronically stressed, burnt-out, overwhelmed and resentful. Self-denial is unsustainable - so I explain how we fall into this trap and how to GTFO quick. If you're a helper who prides herself in that role, but also struggles with people-pleasing, feelings of under-appreciation for all that you do and frustration of people's demands and entitlement, listening to this episode should be non-negotiable.

51. Selflessness (SYWTBAH - Part 1)
This episode is the first of three in a series of podcasts I’m calling “So you want to be a helper” (SYWTBAH). We're taking a deep dive into the concept and practice of selflessness. In upcoming episodes I'll share part two and three we'll talk about self denial (episode 53) and how to be an effective giver (episode 55). The concept of selflessness isn't flawed, but the way we helpers have put it into practice causes burnout, overwhelm, frustration and resentment. I explain why this happens, what's missing, and make an urgent plea for all helpers to make some subtle shifts in belief and action so that we don't give help at the expense of help. These shifts actually make us more effective givers despite the common objections I'll rip to shreds. If you're a helper who prides herself in that role, but also struggles with people-pleasing, feelings of under-appreciation for all that you do and frustration of people's demands and entitlement, listening to this episode should be non-negotiable.    LINKS FROM THE EPISODE:  The Ambitious Women's Collective Facebook group Book a free consult to determine if 1:1 coaching with Dr. Dee is right for you and your ambitious goals.

50. Choosing Resilience with Athens E. Pellegrino
In this episode I interview Athens Pellegrino and we get down and dirty talking about the power you gain from developing resiliency. Athens shares her story of becoming first a military spouse, then a mother, and how moving just seven days after giving birth to her second child propelled her into starting a business. We talk about identity shifting and creation, and having to “start over” with each of her seven military moves, and how that’s impacted her skills development and career decisions. She shares how her business came from the desire to help her child, and not finding the tools she wanted, as well as the path she took to create the successes she has in authoring a book and getting it to market. Ultimately, we land on resilience as the choice we make to become strong in the face of challenge rather than shrinking or accepting defeat.  ABOUT ATHENS: Athens E. Pellegrino grew up in Ocean City, New Jersey. She attended St. Joseph's University and obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. She met her husband Christopher while attending the university and married in 2009. After, she studied at Troy University and received a Master of Public Administration degree.

Athens and Christopher have a son, Atticus (age 2) and daughter Callista (age 1). The family has experienced 7 Permanent Change of Station (PCS) assignments (military speak for moves). The latest was 7 days after giving birth to Callista. Athens is intrigued by the strength and resiliency of military families, which led to her creation of the Military Child Chronicles series.

47. Inherent Worthiness
In this episode we're talking about worthiness - and specifically how we are all fundamentally and inherently worthy, even when we don't feel that way. Every direction I look I encounter people who are struggling to feel worthy, feel good enough - at epidemic proportions - and it's not a coincidence. I'll drop some truths about why it seems like just about everyone struggles with shame and feelings of unworthiness -- and why it's so critically important that we accept and own our inherent worthiness. And before you try and say it would be selfish to take time out to feel this way, I'll explain just why owning your worthiness is just about the most selfless thing you can do.  LINKS FROM THE EPISODE: The Ambitious Women's Collective Facebook group Book a free consult to determine if 1:1 coaching with Dr. Dee is right for you and your ambitious goals.

We explore how the idea of being selfless causes us to put ourselves and our physiological needs last, and encourage listeners to take selfless back in a way that enables women to powerfully care for their mind, body and spirit. We also tackle a lot of the objections our clients often have about self-care and making changes. This message is for all women, but especially for those who have big goals but are often burnout, overwhelmed, and exhausted.

In this episode we’re exploring all the reasons why long-term goals take a different kind of motivation, commitment and effort to achieve. I take a deep dive into the four different factors that are working against you, and how to work with yourself rather than fight to show up and consistently chip away at these complex undertakings. This episode is for you: If you’ve ever started a long-term goal but struggled to sustain motivation. If you’ve found yourself in an all in / all out pattern, having a hard time balancing the effort require to achieve the goal and your other responsibilities. If every time you start a long-term goal you feel a ton of doubt, confusion, and catch yourself sabotaging your efforts. If you feel like you’re always having to force yourself to work on the goal. If you’ve given up making long-term goals because you’re sick of the fight or you’ve begun to doubt your ability to achieve them. If you’re already amazing at achieving long-term goals but want to know how to achieve them faster, while having more fun along the way.

44. When Women Run with Angel Castillo
In this episode I interview Angel Castillo and we get down and dirty talking about the change in the political landscape when women get involved - from working on (or volunteering for) a campaign to running as a candidate. She shares her story of how she came to run for Ogden city mayor in 2019, her takeaways from the race, and importance of being an engaged citizen. We explore how being a woman and a POC impacted her campaign, and how she'd approach things differently next time. If you've ever thought that politics needs to change, you'll want to listen to this episode to learn how YOU can be a part of that change.  ABOUT ANGEL:  Based in Ogden, UT, Angel Castillo is a Marketing Consultant with deep local advocacy roots. She serves Ogden as a board member for YCC, Roads to Independence, and as an Executive Committee Member with the Ogden NAACP.  As former Planning Commissioner for Ogden City, Angel had a front row seat to how local government directly impacts quality of life. Knowing real change comes from shifting power and creating policy, she ran for Ogden mayor in 2019. While the race went to the two term incumbent, to be just 7.5% shy of winning is monumental considering Angel lived in Ogden just under two years at the time of election. Angel is a champion for affordable housing, equity/inclusion, unsheltered advocacy and public safety. She uses the Ruth Bader Ginsburg quote "Women belong in all places where decisions are being made" unapologetically and will repeatedly ask you to run for office. And yes, she's running in 2023.

Aysin decided that the "rat race of modern life" is not for her - and she sees how her clients are awakening to the same truth. We explore what it means to redefine a good life - and why this practice is so critical to our wellbeing. We also geek out on the concept, practice and embodiment of ambition.      ABOUT AYSIN:  Aysin Karaduman is a Life Coach and Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who helps driven people get out of their own way and finally create the life of their dreams. She does this using her signature blend of mindset tools, ancestral nutrition and deep inquiry into just what it means to be human today.

40. Break the Rules
In this episode we’re talking all about the rules…and not the ones we are conscious of (like laws, restrictions, etc). It’s the rules that society has conditioned into us, the rules that dictate how we feel, act, create, and live. These rules operate at a subconscious level and drive everything. They serve as shortcuts did the brain… and they’re often the #1 culprit behind self-sabotage. We’re deep-diving into how the brain uses them, how to access them, and how to finally break up with the disempowering rules that hold us back. Once you learn how to rewrite the rules EVERYTHING changes and NOTHING is impossible.

39. Whatever it Takes with Pamella Arnold
In this episode I interview Pamella Arnold and we get down and dirty talking about her commitment to doing whatever it takes to live life by her own terms. Through her story of moving from Brazil to the US to the UK all in her early 20s, we cover the difference between courage and fearlessness (which people often confuse), the power created from deciding what you want and committing to it, and the possibility that's created in resourcefulness and being unwilling to quit. Pam shares the beliefs that helped her do so many things that other people are unwilling to do or could never dream of  doing. She also shares the number one practice that helped her (and her clients) to stop emotionally overeating.  ABOUT PAMELLA Pamella Arnold is The Emotional Eating Coach, Qualified Nutritional Therapist and host of the podcast Overcome Emotional Eating. She helps women overcome emotional eating and lose weight for good. After her first heartbreak at age 19, she became an emotional eater. Only 4 years later she was diagnosed with insulin resistance and borderline diabetes, suffered with anxiety and panic attacks at age 25, and yo-yo dieted until age 32. Pamella tried all the diets out there and that resulted in getting stuck in a yo-yo body and self-loathing. She successfully reverted her diagnosis with good nutrition, lost weight and overcame emotional eating with coaching. Now her passion and mission is to help women to stop dieting and start living their lives using the coaching tools she has been using so you can achieve mind, body and life freedom.

37. Embracing Your Humanity
We've been conditioned to try and outrun and outperform our humanity, and it's killing us and our results. So many of my clients come to me with "problems" to solve that really are just a denial and rejection of our needs and emotional experience. Self-development is great...but you can get to the point where you’re trying to deny basic parts of your humanity. You won't heal away your humanity, not matter how hard you try. In this episode I break down how this happens, what it looks like, and offer a framework for allowing for and embracing ALL of your humanity...which ultimately makes the results your desire a much more accomplishable task than trying to operate like a robot.  LINKS FROM THE EPISODE: The Ambitious Women's Collective Facebook group Book a free consult to determine if 1:1 coaching with Dr. Dee is right for you and your ambitious goals.

36. Your Big Beautiful Brain
Our experiences, as we know them, are created in our big, beautiful brains. Everything we know and think we know, everything that we'll think, feel, do and create first starts in our brains. Yet most of us have very little understanding of what's going on under the hood. Learning about the brain helped me to better understand myself and changed what I believed were problems to be solved. In this episode I share four processes occurring in our brains - at both subconscious and conscious levels - and how they shape who we are and how we operate. It's these processes that create our emotional experience, drive our behavior, and dictate our results in life. Understanding the brain leads to greater levels of self-awareness, which is the foundation for all sustainable and lasting change and growth.  LINKS FROM THE EPISODE: The Ambitious Women's Collective Facebook group    Book a free consult to determine if 1:1 coaching with Dr. Dee is right for you and your ambitious goals.

31. Discipline
Discipline is the third part of creating high performance results, and in this episode I’m offering a completely different way to think about self-discipline. The mere mention of discipline can cause one to break out in the cold sweats and shame spiral of inadequacy. We’ve been conditioned to have some really shitty beliefs about discipline that lead us to feel like we’re inferior for not having it. And - to make it even even worse - the ways we try to become more disciplined actually set us up to fail. Discipline is wildly important to creating high performance results - it’s how we install new habits of thinking and behavior. But we MUST change the way we view and develop discipline to have a non-toxic relationship with discipline.

Consistency is one of the three parts of creating high performance results. But, in this episode, I offer a completely different take on what should be the focus of your consistent efforts.

If you focus on the three areas presented in this episode, it's much easier to create long lasting consistency in achieving your goals. Instead of focusing on the consistent effort for your current goal, focus on these consistent behaviors that will help you achieve every goal you set.  LINKS FROM EPISODE: The Ambitious Women's Collective Facebook group The Smashing Ceilings Mastermind      Book a free consult to determine if 1:1 coaching with Dr. Dee is right for you and your ambitious goals.

11. Dirty vs. Clean Failure
Failure is an inherent part of success; it's impossible to succeed without experiencing failure. In this episode we're taking a deep dive into failure, and the difference between dirty and clean failure.   Dirty failure keeps us stuck, it's painful and we subconsciously self-sabotage to avoid it. Clean failure is an experience that moves us forward quickly, and enables us to fail forward toward the achievement of our goals.  This episode explains the difference between the two, the negative consequences of dirty failure,  the benefits of clean failure, and how to "fail clean" in the future.

10. The Hustle Trap
Hustling and entrepreneurship go hand in hand, or at least that's the common belief. So many entrepreneurs share how they hustled their way to six figures and beyond.  Hustle might be a way to start a business but it's a hard way to sustain and scale a business.  In this episode I break down the misconceptions and challenges that hustle culture creates. I share a new way of thinking about hustle so that you can create six figure results without the grind, and the pain, punishment or pressure that usually accompany it.  --- Want help kicking the hustle habit for good?

7. Comfort Zones Aren't Real
A common belief shared in the self-improvement world is that you're either in your comfort zone or your outside it creating your dreams.  In this episode, I propose that there's no such thing as a comfort zone - especially when you are a growth-minded, goal oriented person.  Instead, I propose the three zones that actually exist, and how we move through them to achieve our goals (or get stuck).  Show notes:  Click here to see the image of the three zones.

In order to create six figure results you must be the leader of your life.  In order to do THAT, you must learn to lead your brain.  Our default leaderless brain believes it's running the show.  But when you learn to lead your brain, you're not only in charge, you're able to harness all that power to achieve six figure results.

4. Seasons of Growth
When we look to nature to guide change, we do it best.  Mother Nature has a lot to teach us about seasons of growth.  The problem is that humans often ignore this wisdom.  When we fail to transition with the seasons of growth, we handicap our performance, our sanity, and our results.

1. Your Brain is a Liar
If your brain incessantly chatters - you are not alone. I used to think this constant noise was normal. In this episode we're talking about how our brains lie to us to keep us safe. But instead it often has us feel really crappy. We're shining light on our brain's lies so that we can finally feel SAFE and at HOME in our own minds.
