Money can be a huge source of conflict for couples. When couples don’t see eye to eye on saving and spending, their relationship suffers. Scott and Bethany Palmer, a.k.a. The Money Couple, discovered this money disconnect after years of working with couples and set out to change the conversation. Together they created The Five Money Personalities to help couples learn more about themselves and each other.

In this honest conversation about money, Scott and Bethany explain the five money personalities and how couples can work to understand each other. We also talk about money mistakes, painless ways to save, and stopping money fights before they start.

Today’s guest is Julie Reisler, author and Life Designer, and she is the founder and CEO of Empowered Living, a Life Design and personal development company. While Julie has a Master’s Degree in Coaching and more than 12 certifications in health and wellbeing, her Masters could have been in people pleasing and crappy self esteem. Author of, Get a PhD in YOU: A Course in Miraculous Self-Discovery, Julie authentically shares the extensive personal-growth wisdom that came from her own struggles with body image, relationships, and feeling “not enough.”

Julie is also in the short documentary, Hungry For More, where she shares openly about her journey with emotional overeating to finding out what really makes you full. Julie is a multi-time TEDx speaker, meditation teacher on the popular app, Insight Timer, and faculty member at Georgetown University’s coaching program, Julie is enamored with helping you to master your inner world so you can master your outer world. Julie’s purpose and passion is to guide you to become your you-est you! She is a mama of two, step-mama of one, happily remarried, and in love with her very imperfect life.

I loved this chat with Julie because we both shared our struggles and how we work through our insecurities. We openly discuss perfectionism, people pleasing, and feeling unworthy, and I know this honest conversation will help others feel less alone. Also, we talk about her book, Get a Ph.D in You and how we all can come to know our truest selves.

Podcast #259 // Debbie Augenthaler on Grief, Transformation, and a New Beginning

It’s also very quick, fun, and efficient to learn a language with Babbel. Learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Swedish, and more. Try it for FREE at babbel.com.

 

Debbie Augenthaler is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City. Her husband, Jim, died suddenly in her arms when she was only 36 years old. He had been healthy and vibrant – the doctors compared the probability of his death by heart attack to being struck by lightning. That lightning strike ended her life as she knew it and thus began the “baptism by fire” that brought her to her new future.

You Are Not Alone is the book she wishes she’d had when she was grieving. With the connection of a shared experience, Debbie guides the reader through grief to transformation and a new beginning.
In this show Debbie and I discuss loss, healing, and her spiritual journey that led her to realize love never dies. Debbie shares what helped her through her grief, how we can help those grieving, and practical thoughts on rebuilding your life after a loss. I loved this conversation with Debbie because we both openly shared our experiences with loss and discusses the importance of letting ourselves grieve our own way. Grief is weird and complicated and never really goes away, but Debbie shares how we can learn to live alongside grief and remember that love never dies.

Marc and Angel Chernoff know a thing or two about rebuilding after hitting bottom. In 2006, the husband and wife team were struggling personally and professionally. Almost simultaneously, they lost two loved ones (one to suicide, the other to illness) and their primary source of income in the wake of the recession. Suddenly, life as they knew it came to a screeching halt and they were forced to reinvent themselves. They began documenting their journey on a blog, committing themselves to doing this daily task to keep them motivated and positive.

The result? Marc & Angel Hack Life, recognized by Forbes as “one of the most popular personal development blogs,” with more than a million engaged readers each month. What began as a small, daily habit blossomed into a successful website and full-blown career as professional life coaches.

In their new book, Getting Back to Happy: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Reality, and Turn Your Trials Into Triumphs, Marc and Angel share their empowering advice for facing struggles. In this episode, we discuss many strategies for changing mindset patterns, what happiness really means, the pressure to feel happy all the time, and ways to get unstuck. This was a fun, uplifting, and inspiring episode with lots of take aways on true happiness.

She discusses how she made her role as first lady in her church her own, rather than copying those around her or feeling like she had to present herself a certain way. We also talked about Dorena’s new book, ColorFull, a beautiful story about celebrating our differences. Dorena shared her inspiration behind the book, her thoughts on how to talk to kids about race, and what she hopes kids and parents take away from this story.

Today’s show is all about mindfulness, a topic I’m passionate about! I stumbled across Breathe, Mama, Breathe by Shonda Moralis on a blog post about Mother’s Day gifts, found the book on Amazon, and immediately ordered it. Then I got to finding Shonda online and sent her a message asking her to be on my show. I am thrilled she said yes, and we had a great chat all about mindfulness, meditation, and the daily (if not hourly!) practice of catching those negative thoughts and feelings and re-framing our mindsets.

In this show Shonda offers several types of mindfulness breaks I know anyone could alter to fit their lives. These mindful breaks are short and doable, no need to find yourself a quiet space for hours on end. In a few moments time, you can find more peace in your life – I know I have! We also chat about motherhood, loneliness and isolation, and how mantras can help in those trying times.
