A personal growth + life transformation podcast where I'll tell stories and lessons from my own life, interview clients, other coaches, professionals, experts and thought leaders, all with lessons and stories of their own to help you transform your life!
There's so much amazing s**t to learn in this world. And the best part? You never know what is going to be the thing that rocks your world and absolutely changes your life!
You are my tribe, and it's time we start growing together!
What does success look like for you? Is it a tangible thing you've contributed to the world? Is it a feeling of fulfillment or personal meaning? Is it more about your relationships? Is it a combination of all these things? Or...maybe you're likely me and you don't know. I was inspired by reading the book , “In the Company of Women”, to touch on success and what it means. It's an intensely personal subject and I realized in this MINI-SODE that I don't have a crystal clear definition. Instead, I approach defining success in a different way and I wanted to share that with you.
We're back on track with the interviews and this was a fun one because I just met my new best friend! Nicole Hudson is a fellow participant in Remote Year and her story parallels mine in so many ways. I absolutely loved hearing her story and talking about some of the hesitations, questions, and decisions that she ultimately had to make that led her to pick up and leave a seemingly great life and career in New York City to find a life that felt like hers. Some of the tangible work she did, the reflection that she found herself doing and the ultimate realizations that she made might surprise you! I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
It's a double episode week because this has been a BIG week for Coach Ellyn and my coaching biz! This is the week that I launched my baby, my dream program, Life 101! And today, I'm going to tell you all about the cornerstones of this program, which I believe to be the 3 Things you NEED to succeed in your life and to create your dream life on your terms!
Today, I'm sitting down with 3 of my former clients - Gunther Oakey, corporate counsel and all around creative badass; Annie Jacobsen, insurance broker by day and mental health guru by, also day; and Jess Newfield, Remote Year program leader + community facilitator + impact design consultant extraordinaire! These 3 took time away from their R&R at our personal growth retreat this past weekend to clear up some of the questions that people often have about coaching - what it is, coaching vs. thereapy, if it's worth the investments, and the overarching benefits of coaching in their life!
Why do so many people set goals and then ultimately fail at achieving them? Well, I believe that there's a big reason for that and I believe that reason ultimately ties back to one specific thing. This week, I'm totally violating the rules of podcasting. It's like Podcast 101 that the quality of your audio is KING...but I'm taking a risk here, because I'm sharing some thing that might fall into the "shitty audio" category. I'm sharing with you a snippet of my fave IGTV that I've ever done called "Momentum is the Secret Sauce" because the content and the message in this WORTH taking that risk. I hope you enjoy it!
Sometimes we just don't show up as our best selves. We snap at our friends, or significant others. We freak out about bad WiFi and struggle to keep ourselves from drop kicking our laptop across the room. We overreact! It's normal, and it's even more so when things aren't going perfectly. Bottom line, it's easy to be a good person and the best version of ourselves when things are going right and much more difficult when things aren't. Today, I'm going to tell you about some of my recent experiences massively overreacting and not showing up at my best, and, ultimately, the things that have helped me work through those moments. Because, whether we want to admit it or not, sometimes we just need to CALM OUR TITS!
"There is no better way to fight weakness than with strength. Once the mind and body have been awakened to their true potential, it’s impossible to turn back." In this episode, I talk all about how fitness and physical challenge has shown up in my life as a vehicle for challenge, change and transformation, with a little help from the wonderfully impactful essay "Iron & The Soul" by Henry Rollins, which has hugely impacted and resonated with me on my journey!
Today I'm sitting down with two new friends from Instagram, Jenny & Mike of Introvert Goat, a budding apparel company with a mission of empowering introverts! We're talking all things introversion, from how their experiences with being introverts inspired them to start their company, the difference between introversion and shyness, managing introversion in social situations and SO MUCH MORE!

This is one of those episodes that probably won't be about what you think it is. It's not about my love for the Tacos, whom you heard from in the last episode. It's actually about the 4 people who will help me level up my physical and emotional game and the role that 1 of them has played in helping me handle my negative emotions.
Why are you traveling the world for a year? Seriously. What is with this digital nomad trend? Well, in today's episode, we're sitting down with my girls and my current roommates in Prague, Kathleen & Kaarina, and talking all the things travel and the role world travel has played in our lives, particularly from the perspective of growth, challenge and change! We are the TACOS!
