Podcast #270 // Em Sexton on Influence, Self Worth, and Comparison

September 18th, 2018 Posted by Podcast, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #270 // Em Sexton on Influence, Self Worth, and Comparison”

I loved this honest conversation with Em Sexton. Em is a former Vice President of Communications and Change Management on Wall Street turned boutique owner, speaker, coach, and thought leader. In this episode, Em shared her journey from Wall Street to entrepreneur, the thought that went into making that big change, and her advice for anyone looking to make a big life change. We also dove into some deep topics close to my heart, like worthiness, influence, and comparison. We spent quite a bit of time diving into comparison, and Em shared what went into her viral blog post, Unfollow Her. I think we can all relate to catching the comparison bug, and I so appreciate Em’s honest talk about her own feelings of comparison. And, of course, we also talk about Em’s boutique, The Flourish Market, leading teams, and her philanthropic work.

Today’s guest is writer Mara Altman. Mara is the author of the new book, Gross Anatomy: Dispatches from the Front (and Back). I loved this honest conversation Mara and I had about chin hair, hair on our upper lips, bikini lines, vaginal smell, hemorrhoids, and much, much more. We touch on PMS and demystifying the stigma around PMS and what we can learn from PMS. Additionally, we discuss why we feel shame around our bodies and how we can work to overcome that shame. Mara also shares her writing process, interesting body facts, and her relationship with her own body.

In this episode Mara and I talked about several videos she’s created to go along with her book. You can find those videos here.

In this second part of my episode with Rachel (here’s part I), we dive deeper into confidence and helping our kids develop resiliency. We speak specifically about girls, and how they lose confidence at a young age, why that is, and what we can do about it. Relatedly, we discuss the concept of worthiness and self esteem. Rachel also offers concrete scripts for balancing firmness and respect when it comes to correcting our kids.

We also touch on motivation, teaching kids to try their best, perfectionism, and helping our kids deal with discomfort.

We also mention Rachel’s Parenting Academy during our conversation. You can find out more about the Academy and how Rachel can support you here.

Today’s guest is my friend and clinical psychologist, Rachel Bailey. Rachel has over 10 years experience working with children, teens, and young adults – and their parents. In this two-part episode, we dive into redefining and normalizing the parenting experience. During this first episode, we discuss Rachel’s approach to parenting, why it’s okay to love your kids but not love parenting, actual words to say and strategies to use during difficult parenting issues like tantrums, our own parenting foibles, and more.

Rachel and I get honest and real about our own “yuck” (Rachel’s great term for how we act “bad” when we feel bad and one of my favorite concepts of hers!) and how we feel better and happier as parents when we let go of needing to be perfect.

We also mention Rachel’s Parenting Academy during our conversation. You can find out more about the Academy and how Rachel can support you here.

RXBAR is a whole food protein bar. What does that mean? Our bars are made with 100% whole ingredients. We want to be transparent and up front with our customers, which is why we label the core ingredients (egg whites, dates and nuts) on the front of the package and the ingredients that make up texture and taste on the back (100% real cacao, coconut, etc.). Beyond being a go-to snack that checks off a number of nutritional boxes, RXBARs actually taste delicious. We found creating a bar made from real, whole food ingredients actually tastes better than anything out there. We don’t need the fillers, the additives, the chemicals or the added sugar.
Get 25% off your first order at rxbar.com/bagley. That’s 16 delicious bars for less than $20 with free shipping!
I’m thrilled to welcome Dorena Williamson back to the podcast to discuss her new book, Thoughtfull: Discovering the Unique Gifts in Each of Us. I interviewed Dorena a few weeks ago about her first book, Colorfull, and I loved that conversation, so I was eager to have her back on the show to continue our conversation. On this show, we discussed the inspiration behind Thoughtfull, talking to kids about differently-abled people, teaching kids about the inherent value of all people, and the importance of being thoughtful. We also talked about bully and talking to kids about how to address bullying.

A deeply personal memoir, An Outlaw Makes It Home, is an odyssey, a journey out, and a return home. Pulling no punches, this candid, compelling and raucous spiritual adventure story, follows Eli Jaxon-Bear on his journey from underground revolutionary to spiritual awakening.

Eli takes us with him from the civil rights marches in Alabama to his time as a federal fugitive during the Vietnam War, from the
uncharted outback of Peru to a monastery in Japan, an initiation into a Sufi clan in Marrakesh, and the streets of India in his quest for a final
teacher. It is here that he meets Papaji, ultimately ending his search for freedom and finally finding true love and fulfillment.

Can sex, drugs and revolution lead to a life of true love and lasting fulfillment? An Outlaw Makes It Home answers this while showing us
the tests and traps that confront all of us as we navigate through life in the search for happiness.

In this episode we discuss Eli’s journey, finding happiness and what happiness means, and his work at the Leela Foundation. We also touch on the enneagram and finding our true selves.

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.
