This past weekend I was invited to write and share a new spoken word poem at my soul sister, Danette May’s event. To say I was terrified is putting it mildly, but I did it! And while I’m still processing my the journey and the emotions around it, one thing I know for certain is that my fear is always the X that marks the spot when it comes to what fulfills me and makes me feel like I’m living in my highest potential.

I shared a couple clips of the poem on social media, but have gotten several requests to hear the poem in its entirety. Always one to feel the fear again (why?!), I’ve recorded it on this episode and have provided the words below. If my words pull at your soul and you know someone else who would benefit, please share. Thanks so much for all of your support!

Here we go…

I got up today only to find that I’m still not yet where I want to be

A little less “I woke up like this” 

A little more - “existential crisis” – feeling stuck in my reality.


When I think about who I am now, compared to who I think I’m supposed to be 

I wake up every morning, AND INSTEAD of doing things that set me free

I put on a straight-jacket and wear someone else’s identity. 


Not even accepting myself on my own ID 

Height one inch taller

Weight 10 pounds smaller

Anyone else fear a lie detector test at the DMV – or is it just me?


Just the thought of trying to change my life makes me feel defeated 

Like I got the short end of the stick

Or like this bitch over here got all the talent 

And I got cheated.


When I close my eyes, I can see my life’s vision

But when I open them, I can’t see past my email, my thighs, my to-do list and dirty kitchen

I mean what’s it gonna take to reach my dream, be seen, and get attention?

Instead of growing my mind

I put all my energy towards beauty, titles and Instagram mentions.


When will I be enough?

Thanks to Fairytales and Ariel, I’ve spent my whole life chasing people and stuff

“Look at this stuff isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?”


Still waiting for my Prince Charming, castle and Fairy Godmother

Jerry Maguire said, “You complete me” 

So feeling enough must ONLY come from a love.r


So many mixed messages, it’s no wonder we’re confused

The world tries keeping us busy stressing over low carbs, waist trainers and red-bottom shoes

They sidetrack us from our purpose with diets and promises of youth

But it’s a choice to decide to be committed to finding and living your truth.


The other day I was walking past a man in conversation with his mate

He said, and I quote, “You deserve the life you tolerate”

I just about choked

Cause at that point in my day I was feeling upset

Sorry for myself because there are unlived dreams I haven’t met yet

If what I tolerate is the life that I’m living 

then you’re telling me it’s been my choice to not use these gifts I’ve been given?


They say through ownership I can get my power back

I gotta be honest – easier said than done

I was really hoping this whole personal development thing would be a little more fun…


True story – I was recently at an event like this

Sitting in the audience

And from the stage I felt the speakers words hit me in the soul much like a deliverance:

I am not what you think I am; I am not what I think I am; I am what I think you think I am.”

Let me repeat that….

I am not what you think I am; I am not what I think I am; I am what I think you think I am”

Moral of the story is the only thing that’s stopping us, is what other people think 
Get your mind off other people’s shit 
And put your soul back in the driver’s seat! 

The only thing wrong with you is that you think something is wrong with you.


Everything is right with you 

In spite of you

Ignoring the higher you

The answers are all inside of you

So why are you

Gripping onto others view

When what they think of you is… 

NOTHING. Because they’re only thinkin’ about themselves.


The truth will set you free,

But first it will piss you off

And the truth is:

If you keep fighting for your limitations, you get to keep them

It’s time to stop choosing suffering 

and choose to fight for your queendom. 


I know the life I’m born for and the woman I’m supposed to be

I’m embarrassed to tell you my soul is an undercover celebrity

So where do I go if I believe the life I have now must be disputed 

It’s like I can see I’m on screen

But my voice has been muted

It’s been so long since I’ve used it, or maybe I never learned how

But lately something’s stirring, rising up telling me my time is now.


What stops us are the lies we choose to believe

It’s an imagined future of pain that we think we perceive 

It’s when I’m alone that my fears go viral

Next is panic, then my anxiety starts to spiral. 


I’m picturing judgment, comparison, an imagined future that’s not even real 

It’s our past informing our future telling us how to feel!

I believe the reason we feel pain is because we need to bridge the gap,

Between our fear and our faith in our source and its unlimited tap.


In order to become the woman I’m chasing

I have to let go of the woman I’m facing

The mirror is the place where you have to fall in love

With all the scars from our past 

Reconfigure them from curses, into gifts from above

Trusting that what you have now is what you need to begin

And who’ll you’ll become will transform as you start to step in.


If I don’t start to take action now, it will be consequential 

Because my biggest fear is dying, without reaching my highest potential

‘Cuz it just takes one to change your family tree

and your bravery and courage is bringing your ancestors to their knees

They may not have been able to use their voice or have what you do

That’s why you must take action,

They have blazed this trail for you.


But we have to wake up from the lie, and emerge from our comas

To stop sleepwalking through life requires more than a kiss from a prince or diploma.


See, the magic of life is that it gives you clues

And if you’re open and seeking you get glimpses of truth

And in case it’s still in question, YES you’ve been chosen, you’re forgiven it’s written

But you gotta SHOW UP - STAND UP - RISE UP - stop sittin’.


The map to your bliss is to follow it, and keep showing up

It’s going to be messy, your hands will shake, you’ll get criticized and you’ll want to throw up

Becoming the biggest version of you is the scariest thing you’ll do 

You’ll have darkness and pain and some friends will leave you.


But I’m going to let you in on life’s ultimate hack

It’s that you get to choose gratitude even when it feels like the universe doesn’t have your back.

God wants to use you

He guides those who are willing

And it’s not up to you to decide if your dream is worth killing


You’ve got a soul contract to live into your life’s call 

Don’t worry about failing, you will, it’s a part of it    

But you’ve got sisters here to catch you when you fall

Choose love

Choose forgiveness 

Choose courage

Choose your truth.


Every single time you show up 

It gives more hope for our youth

Stay close to what makes you feel ALIVE

Don’t just survive 

That’s not why you’re here

But you gotta continue to do the things that help you get clear.


PAY ATTENTION to soul hits, nudges and winks

AND whenever you get them, take action and don’t think

Sometimes when I’m quiet, when I’m running, or if Eminem’s rapping

I’ll lose myself in the music and feel God start the tapping

On three, everybody get up, we’re gonna start clapping


3, 2, 1…


Sister you're a star – you’re a strong girl

Playin’ in your gifts - gonna start to change the world today

You got glitter on yo' face

Your hair’s in place

Spreading your magic all over the place




We will, we will rise up

We will, we will rise up

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • The power of cleaning up your thoughts
  • What it means to be in your “light body”
  • How different fears hold us back
  • Creating your own dream landscapes
  • Using dreams to connect
  • The importance of a morning ritual
  • The Choice Point
  • How to pull yourself out of a “neutral” state
  • How being more you unlocks new levels
  • Why we’re all one
  • Drew’s new book, “You Be You” and the book-writing journey
  • Why we need to invest in ourselves




Show Notes

My friend, founder of Organifi and now author, Drew Canole is back on the show and I couldn’t be more happy as I feel a bit like I need to redeem myself after my last interview with him – I can’t believe how nervous I was last time! Since that time, not only have we hung out multiple times, but we’ve participated in a week-long retreat in Costa Rica together as well. I never knew it was possible to laugh so much! Drew has definitely helped me see that fun is a requirement of up-leveling our lives!

Drew has a unique ability to help others tap into different parts of their lives and uncover who they truly are. And one of the primary ways Drew is doing that today is through his new book, You Be You, where he guides readers to “detox their lives, crush their limitations and own their awesome.” Why achieve your goals or present the world with a counterfeit version of yourself when it will never feel completely true to who you are?

Be prepared to have a lot of laughs and hear a lot of wisdom in our candid conversation. And if you’re looking for a way to unlock that next level of being YOU, definitely pick up his book!


Question Highlights:

  • Why did you pick the title of your book?
  • When you’re in your “light body,” what does that feel like?
  • In the past, who did you think you needed to be in order to navigate through life in a successful way?
  • Do you ever go through “seasons” – a winter or a dry spell?
  • Once you achieve a goal, what do you do next? How do you unlock the next level?
  • In your life right now, is there any area where you’re not fully showing up as yourself?
  • What are the conversations coming out of your Organifi book club?
  • Why is this book making such huge shifts?
  • Why should people grab your book?




"When you choose to do something in the moment, you have to be present.”

“When you’re present is the only time you can manifest or materialize your goals, desires and dreams.”

“The world doesn’t need a counterfeit you. The planet needs a re-remembering of who you truly are.”

“When you start to give more love to yourself, you open up a world of possibilities.”


Drew Canole is an author, transformation coach, and founder of Organifi. Drew has helped thousands of women and men revitalize their health, ignite their vision, and shift the course of their life forever. After reaching a dead end in his own health, Drew discovered the chasm of difference between going through the motions and living with radical intention. He now helps people tap into the "Big You" to create the change they never thought possible.

Fair warning to you before you start listening to today’s episode – I am en fuego! Having just attended Lewis Howes’ Summit of Greatness and being surrounded by 1,500+ big thinkers, there’s no way I couldn’t be. It’s events like these that force me to take chances and go for the things that scare the living crap out of me!


“Fear is your invite for growth.”


The purpose of life is growth and progress. We are all meant to find what makes us fulfilled and happy, but sometimes that’s the thing we fear the most.


As an exercise, I want you to write down the 10 things you’re most afraid of – they can be big or small. These are your next steps. From here, circle the least scary step – or perhaps the scariest step. Whichever you choose, act on it, no matter how uncomfortable or scared you are. Rejection or failure is inevitable, but the biggest gifts are on the other side.


No, I’m not super human, but I will say after receiving 21 rejections on my books, I am grateful for them because they helped me land the publishing company that liked it! Plus, consistently doing the things that I have fear around helps me grow and throughout that process I’m also showing thousands of others that they too can do it.


Most recently one of my fears is about sharing a spoken word poem I wrote for my friend, Danette May’s event this weekend. I love doing this, but I’m terrified of what others think! (Be sure to tune in because I’m sharing a small portion of it with you.) But here’s the thing, I want to grow and I don’t want to leave this world living up to anything less than my highest potential. I do mess up while reading it, but I’ve left it in because I want you to see that sometimes we have to mess up and let others see it in order to free them as well. I hope it gives you some of that freedom, too.


So today, stop playing small. Do something messy, unplanned or share something that doesn’t feel good. And be sure to share it with me over on IG…I love hearing from you!



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Why the purpose of life is growth and progress
  • Why the biggest gifts are on the other side of fear
  • Her upcoming spoken word performance

I am so thrilled today to have Tom Bilyeu on the show! I recently had the amazing opportunity and experience of being interviewed on his podcast, Impact Theory and I couldn’t wait to continue the conversation and learn even more about the similarities in our lives and business – and this time, pick his brain.


Similar to my journey, Tom grew up in a family who struggled with their weight, and broke the pattern by choosing to pave a healthier way for himself and as result change the trajectory of his life at the same time. That’s why today he’s so passionate about helping others who struggle with their weight. However, Tom is the first to acknowledge that it’s not always an easy path. In fact, when it comes to success in weight loss or a business or career, nothing is guaranteed – except the pain or struggle. And to get through any of that, you must take action and also accept that you may not be right about x-y-z right now. We have to be willing to make changes if we want to see change.


Tune in to learn just what Tom does that helps him do just that. He shares so many tangible takeaways for all of us to start looking at what we’re doing right now and more into our next level of life. Please let me know what thoughts or actions you put into place because of them!




Question Highlights:

  • Can you tell us a little about your background and what got you started in studying film?
  • What’s the difference between finding knowledge and finding what motivates you?
  • What is it in your mind that makes you contemplate what is good and change your path?
  • What do you do and what do you look for in order to make sure you’re putting yourself in those spaces?
  • What does creativity mean to you and what would your life look like without it?
  • Where does the creation of a comic book fit into things right now?
  • What’s your grand vision for what you’re doing right now?
  • Do you know what that one story is?
  • How are you seeking out the people needed for your next level?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Tom’s family history of obesity
  • Why Tom’s deeply passionate about helping people who struggle with weight
  • Why the brain is malleable until we die
  • Embracing inadequacies
  • 80/20 motivation principle
  • The difference between drive and ambition
  • How Quest Nutrition was founded on passion
  • Why Tom wasn’t a born entrepreneur
  • The concept of renewal in nature and in life
  • Cultivating a frame of reference
  • Tom’s eagerness to reinvent himself
  • Finding fulfillment
  • Accepting that you’re wrong about things now
  • Why being the smartest person in the room is a trap
  • Being “anti-fragile”
  • Harnessing adaptability
  • Building relationships and making authentic connections
  • And so much more…




“I’m going to believe the things that empower me.”


“The gap between where you are and what you want to accomplish is a gap of skillset. It is you not being good enough.”


“If you want to get to extraordinary, you’re going to have to realize that we’re rewarded and punished.”


“Drive is the willingness to act on a day-to-day basis in a way that moves you toward your goals. Ambition is having the goals.”


“To develop my drive, I had to suffer.”


“Things that are hard are gonna be the things that develop who you are.”


“What would we do and love every day even if we were failing?”


“The struggle is guaranteed – the success is not.”


“The skillset you already have has already taken you as far as its going to unless you do something that introduces you to a new idea that you turn into a usable skill.”  



Tom Bilyeu is the co-founder of 2014 Inc. 500 company Quest Nutrition — a unicorn startup valued at over $1 billion — and the co-founder and host of Impact Theory. Tom’s mission is to break people out of the Matrix by sharing transformative content and fostering one-to-one communication within the Impact Theory community. Tom believes that human potential is nearly limitless, but the dual pandemics of mental and physical malnutrition are hindering a realization of this potential. Through in-depth interviews with the world’s top achievers, including Gary Vaynerchuk, Maria Sharapova, and Mel Robbins, Tom explores mindset-shifting tactics, questions accepted belief systems, and uncovers distinctive strategies for success.


Tom regularly inspires audiences of entrepreneurs, change makers, and thought leaders at prestigious conferences and seminars around the world, including Success Live, Hustle Con, Thrive, Abundance 360, Mindvalley’s A-fest, and Freedom Fast Lane. Tom has been featured on numerous top-rated podcasts such the Tony Robbins Podcast, The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes, Bulletproof Radio with Dave Asprey, and the Dr. Drew Podcast, and has been featured in Forbes, Inc., Success, and The Huffington Post. He is currently on the Innovation Board of the XPRIZE Foundation.

Today I’m talking about the vital topic of taking action and curing those moments where you’re just sitting in pain thinking. The last week (typically in the mornings is when I struggle the most), I’ve been overthinking – everything. Have you ever caught yourself in a downward spiral like this? And it’s during moments like these that I’m really trying to work on shortening the amount of time they last.


“Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice.”


Here’s my hack – even though I drag my feet sometimes. TAKE ACTION!


“Action cures anxiety.”


Here’s the thing, even something infinitesimally small and new leads to new results. Plus, when your mood is more neutral, and less in a place of suffering, you’re in a better place to welcome new ideas and opportunities. I’m not saying you need to take action all the time…far from it. After all, we need time to relax and connect with other people, but please do not choose suffering! Take the action that will make you feel better. (Trust me, I wouldn’t tell you anything that I wouldn’t tell myself!)


I want you to know that I see you taking uncertain actions despite those doubts in your head, and I’m cheering you on. Thank goodness for tribe because even though I’m scared too, I know I have a group of people that have my back regardless of what’s going on. And I’m here to tell you that no matter what you’re going through right now, I just want you to know that I think you’re magic. We are all magic and we’re not meant to suffer and play small! You need to keep pushing forward and sharing your uniqueness with the world!


Thank you so much for listening and supporting my podcast. If this message resonated with you, please share with a friend and be sure to shoot me a note on IG – I would love to hear how it resonated with you! 



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Taking new action for new results
  • Limiting the time between taking action and suffering, and designating a time to rest
  • Why suffering is a choice

You know how every now and then you get lucky and have a conversation with someone who just “gets” you, your journey and how your brain works? Well, today’s guest, Robyn Youkilis checked that box. Growing up in a family that used food as a source of love, comfort and connection, I could completely relate. Don’t get me wrong this is a great thing, however the breaking point for Robyn (and myself) is when we started gaining weight and that warm, fuzzy connection went away and instead turned into a difficult connection.


Once she made this realization, Robyn set out to create a new conversation around food and weight. She didn’t want to view things as “good” or “bad,” rather she wanted to slow things down and figure out what foods would best support her body.


After much trial and error (that still happens on a daily basis), she now teaches others that it’s OK if you don’t have it all figured out – it may even take decades. It’s all about finding a formula that works for your body and adheres to what your intuition is telling you and keeps you in alignment. She also touches on how motherhood impacted her relationship with food and how it led to an impactful shift in her life then and now.


I had such a great time connecting with Robyn during this conversation. If you’re someone who struggles with your relationship with food, this episode is a must listen (and her book, Thin from Within, a must read).




Question Highlights:

  • What is your life philosophy and how did you get to this place?
  • What did the process of slowing down look for you?
  • How has food become a foundation for everything you’re doing?
  • What’s something in your life right now that you’re so excited about that you weren’t able to do before because food/body was taking up so much space in your brain?
  • What is lighting you up the most right now?
  • What is a question you wish more people would ask you?
  • Do you have a secret dream that you envision for your future?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Robyn’s relationship with food and how it changed at age 13
  • The emotional and physical weight of not living in alignment
  • Food as an experience
  • Robyn’s initial resistance with motherhood and how it was a major foundational shift for her
  • How Robyn has learned to slow down, connect with her body and intuition and gut, teach from that place and “calm the eff down”
  • How to connect with your body
  • Setting intention behind activities to achieve alignment
  • Finding your intuitive food voice
  • Robyn’s power yogurt parfait and Rule of Five Plate
  • The connection between your food/body and success in other areas of your life
  • Rockstar Coaching Program
  • Robyn’s new book, “Thin from Within”
  • Why Robyn wants people to how she “does it all”
  • And so much more…




“You feel good when you're connected to other people.”


“My body is my home.”


“Let your own story and journey be what you want it to be and know that it’s OK.”


“Go with your gut.”



Robyn Youkilis is an AADP Certified Health Coach, author, speaker, and leading expert in holistic digestive health. For nearly a decade, Robyn has helped clients shed both physical and emotional weight with her straightforward yet supportive coaching style, Your Healthiest You. She is the author of the best-selling books, Go with Your Gut and Thin From Within - The Go with Your Gut Way to Lose Weight, and has been featured by The Cooking Channel, The View, The Today Show, The Wall Street Journal, Health, Mind Body Green, Well Good, The Chalkboard Mag and more.

Robyn currently lives in New York City and Los Angeles with her husband and their daughter. She has been a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP) for nearly a decade and enjoys traveling, music festivals and eating dessert at fancy restaurants (one bite at a time, that is!).

I’m fresh off a mastermind call with my closest sister friends and I’ve come to the realization that it’s OK to be a walking, breathing contradiction. Typically, when it comes to being in alignment, we’ve always talked about lining it up with our true purpose or highest potential. While I still believe this is a part of it, I also think a bigger part of it is being aligned with your truth in the present moment.


In order to feel this “truth” though you have to sometimes be out of alignment and feel those feelings, too. Sometimes this means feelings of darkness and ugliness or worry and insecurity. It’s super important though that we not stay in these feelings too long. Acknowledge them and that you feel out of alignment, and make the conscious choice to leave that dark place (or whatever emotion you’re feeling) when the time is right. Remember that this is all a part of the human experience and determine if there is something you could do to make yourself feel better.


Admittedly, I’m in a bit of a dark season right now. I have a ton of amazing things happening in my life now, but there’s this nagging voice in the back of my head that tells me I need to set some more goals and accomplish more. I’m in a season where I need to find self-worthiness without having a ton of goals to prove that I am. Can anyone relate?


Have I navigated my way through this particular season yet? No – I’m still working through it. So, right now I’m giving myself grace and allowing myself to feel all the feels. I’m choosing healthy outlets such as walks, nourishing foods and yes, sometimes crying it out, because choosing a downward spiral isn’t going to serve me in the long run. I’m committing to move forward…period.


I hope this helps you if you’re also going through a similar season. Continue to nurture yourself and one day, when things clear, you’ll realize that it was all meant to help you keep in alignment with your true purpose.



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Redefining what alignment means
  • Why your value shouldn’t be tied to your accomplishments
  • The seasons of life

I love a good story and today’s guest, author Alex Banayan has a great one – so much so that parts of it have become part of my husband Chris and I’s daily walks. Thank goodness I met him in person when Chris interviewed him so I knew whose stories he was actually talking about. ;) Another fun coincidence, we’ve both been on the Price Is Right, but Alex actually WON and used those winnings to fund his new book, The Third Door.


Alex shares with us his seven-year book journey that lead him to interview some of the world’s most successful people to show how they broke through and launched their careers. But let’s not downplay the fears and obstacles that Alex had to navigate through as well. From disappointing his family and losing his father to insecurity and being turned down by potential interviewees, Alex was persistent and now helps others conquer obstacles of all kinds – internal and external.


Alex truly is a gifted storyteller and I know you’ll be able to relate to some many facets of his journey. You don’t want to miss it!




Question Highlights:

  • Now that your book is out in the world, what has been a response that you weren’t expecting?
  • What was the whole point of writing your book?
  • What does pain with awareness look like for you right now?
  • Do you think there’s always a way for anything you choose or just for the moments when your gut pulls you that way?
  • Have you ever had to let go of helping someone in your life because they’re not ready to help themselves?
  • What was a story that freed you up the most?
  • What is something that shook you before your book came out?
  • What are you most excited about right now?
  • Who is the ultimate person you want to read your book?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Alex’s seven-year book journey
  • Using pain as a motivator
  • Evolving motivation
  • Alex’s insecurity while writing The Third Door
  • How Alex’s pain evolved into curiosity
  • How Alex’s Price Is Right winnings funded his book
  • Why being naïve can be an advantage
  • The difference between fear and courage
  • Why Alex’s family didn’t initially support his book
  • Welcoming fear to get more comfortable
  • How fear was a universal element in achieving a dream in all the people Alex interviewed
  • Sharing in order to connect with others
  • How to conquer internal and external obstacles
  • And so much more…




“Pain with awareness is our teacher.”


“You can give someone all the best tools and knowledge in the world and their life can still be stuck, but if you change what someone believes is possible, they’ll never be the same.”


“Courage is acknowledging fears, analyzing the consequences and then deciding you care so much about it you’re going to take one thoughtful step forward anyway.”



ALEX BANAYAN is the author of the national bestseller The Third Door, which chronicles his five-year quest to track down Bill Gates, Lady Gaga, Warren Buffett, Maya Angelou, Steven

Spielberg, and dozens more of the world’s most successful people to uncover how they broke through and launched their careers.


Banayan has been named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, Business Insider’s Most Powerful People Under 30, and been featured in major media including Fortune, Forbes, Businessweek, Billboard,

Bloomberg TV, CNBC, Fox News, MSNBC, and CBS News. An acclaimed keynote speaker, Banayan has presented the Third Door framework to business conferences and corporate leadership teams around the world, including Apple, Google, Nike, IBM, Snapchat, Salesforce, Disney, Harvard, and countless others.

This past weekend I spoke at the Thrive event in Las Vegas (which was amazing), and I also came to the realization that my life is one big classroom. You see, I got sick the morning of the day I was supposed to speak. I’m not sure if it was food poisoning or the flu, but needless to say I wasn’t going anywhere for a while. It was like life was flashing a big neon sign with a message that was impossible for me to ignore. In fact, there were multiple nudges, messages and signs that day, but I’ll leave those for another episode as I’m still marinating in a few of them. One thing I’ve come to realize though is that:


“Every single thing that happens can be a breakthrough lesson and everyone can be a teacher.”


Now this doesn’t mean that nothing bothers us, but it does mean that we get to choose how we view a particular situation and move through it. Yes, you may struggle and it may be annoying or painful, but the sooner we can accept it, the more quickly we’re able to advance to the next level.


“The sooner we accept the obstacle as a lesson or the person as a teacher, we get to move through it faster.”


As Tom Bilyeu shared with me just the other day, “Struggle is guaranteed, success is not.” In order to get to the next level, we have to experience it all. And if we’re going to struggle, we may as well get something useful out of it, yes?


Compare it to a rookie’s journey to becoming a pro. There’s always that point where the rookie is thrown in the game and the team may win or they might lose. The rookie will learn the do’s and don’ts – most likely the hard way. Whatever they experience though, it’s necessary because the coaches make the decision to move up that particular player if they don’t see them in action.


Once you realize that obstacles and people (yes, even those rude people in traffic) are here to teach us, you will experience a whole new level of freedom. It will be uncomfortable and you might shout expletives now and again, but practice and sharpening the skills of love, compassion, boundaries and saying no will help you step into that next level of your life.



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Why life is our classroom
  • Why struggle is inevitable
  • Viewing obstacles as lessons and people as teachers

With a lot of speaking engagements going on for me right now and in the near future, I’ve had to really stop and observe my anxious tendencies and the thoughts that often go along with them. It’s amazing how powerful our thoughts and inner dialogue can be. Today’s episode is all about freeing yourself from the labels that hold you back and knowing that you’re the only one who has that power to do so.


How often have you heard, “I have such anxiety when it comes to speaking in front of people”? Hand raised over here because I’ve definitely said it to myself before. But here’s where we change it. We don’t “have” anxiety. We “do” anxiety. We don’t “have” no energy. We “do” no energy. And it’s in this doing that we have the choice as to what we do or don’t do. See where I’m going with this?


I’d like you to do a quick exercise to take back your power. First, write what you “have.”


            Example: I have anxiety.


Now cross that out and write DO instead.


            I have anxiety. I DO anxiety.


Now describe how you “do” anxiety right now? What actions are supporting this feeling? What thoughts?


            I’m drinking coffee. I’m checking messages right when I wake up. I’m eating crappy food and isolating myself. I keep telling myself how nervous I am and that            I’m going to forget what I’m saying on stage.


Take notice of the conversation in your mind and watch how you’re talking to yourself. If you’re anxious, reframe and tell yourself how excited you are and why. Replace your thoughts with better thoughts and take your control back!


No lie, it doesn’t always go fast. But keep trying on different feelings until it does feel good.


“Choose how you feel.”


Tell yourself, “I can undo any feeling I don’t want to be in.”


And remember, once you start putting out these better feelings, you’ll notice that you’re attracting more too.



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Freeing yourself from labels that hold you back
  • Taking ownership of your thoughts
  • Why you don’t “have” anxiety, you “do” anxiety

When you have conversations like the one I had with founder and CEO of MakeItHappen.Life, Henry Ammar, you can’t help but leave a better human.

Just a head’s up that today’s topic may be a touch overwhelming for some, but I don’t want anyone to get too worried, because when it comes to shifting and changing a person’s beliefs – it’s actually never-ending.


I’ve discovered recently just how important it is to take inventory of one’s tribe, aka the people who we’re spending the most time with. Keep in mind that this can be actual people, television, podcasts etc. I like to also call them reinforcers.


I want you to do a quick exercise and write down the following:


  1. List five people who you’re around the most.
  2. What is the main belief, habit or limiting belief or thing that they are reinforcing in your life?


When completed, review and determine if these habits and beliefs are reflecting back at you. Are they holding you back? Don’t panic if it’s not what you thought. I’m certainly not here to tell you who to hang out with and I certainly won’t tell you to ditch friends who aren’t “positive” enough. But I am telling you that you may want to load the other portions of your “plate” with more positive or up-leveling people. Crowd out your plate in a positive direction.


Maybe that means joining a new group or mastermind? Maybe it’s adding more podcasts, books or self-development events to your life. Whatever it is, just make sure to, “set up a life and tribe that reflects where you’re going and not where you’re at.”



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Taking a tribe inventory
  • Shifting and changing belief systems
  • Why we need more positive reinforcers in our lives

Money doesn’t guarantee fulfillment and today’s guest, Patrice Washington, is hoping more women catch on. As an award-winning author, transformational speaker, hope-restoring coach, and media personality, she started her first 7-figure mortgage-brokering business with her husband before graduating college. Their business was wildly successful until the recession crashed and they lost everything.

Picking herself up after this experience, she realized that she had a lot of knowledge but needed to seek more wisdom. She dug deep and knew it was more important to chase her purpose – not money. She discovered that life is about so much more – relationships, your well-being and your faith to name a few. Recognizing the power of this discovery, she created the 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth, and now teaches others how they can tie each pillar back to producing wealth – and stay true to who they’re called to be.

I had such a great time talking with Patrice – she is such a down-to-earth, purpose-driven woman who relies on faith and her own unique calling to help others find theirs as well. I hope this episode empowers you to break free from any limiting beliefs that you have about yourself and helps you step into your highest purpose and calling.




Question Highlights:

  • What were some things you took back from your recent trip to France?
  • Does the thought of working with your husband again scare you?
  • What is lighting you up right now in your life?
  • What is something you would say to someone who’s ignoring a redefining moment?
  • How do you trust? What do you rely on to push past fear?
  • What are the 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth?
  • What’s something that helps build your faith foundation?
  • What mindset do you keep through the dark times?
  • What’s a message on your heart right now?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Patrice’s recent trip to France impacted her
  • How Patrice and her husband are merging their interests to work together
  • Being driven by purpose
  • The shift that happened in Patrice’s life after her and her husband lost their 7-figure business when the recession hit
  • The difference between knowledge and wisdom
  • Why Patrice initially started a blog
  • How Patrice broke out of the box she (and others) had put herself in
  • Why there’s more to money than budgets and credit reports
  • Patrice’s 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth (Fit, People, Space, Faith, Work and Money)
  • Protecting the vessel needed to create the vision
  • Creating relationships that matter
  • The Redefining Wealth Podcast
  • And so much more…




“The purpose that we’re being called into is greater than any pain that will come with it.”


“Create a lane where you can be all you.”


“I’m committed to the vision but not attached to how I get there.”


“If it was done before, it can be done again.”


“Everything can go bad with money, but if your mind is in the right place, you can always rebuild.”


“You know who you used to be, so before you allow someone to take you back there, give yourself time.”


“You can decide to not decide anything until you’re ready to decide.”


“Choose peace powerfully.”



Patrice Washington is an award-winning author, transformational speaker, hope-restoring coach, and media personality.


Patrice got her start as your favorite personal finance expert, “America’s Money Maven,” having tremendous success with her “mindset approach” to personal finance. She has since expanded her brand and mission, encouraging women to chase purpose, not money.


Patrice is committed to redefining the word “wealth,” using its original meaning, “well-being.” She encourages women to have “wealth” in all aspects of their lives by pursuing their purpose, being fulfilled, and earning more without ever chasing money. Through her teachings, Patrice empowers women to look at life through the lens of abundance and opportunity, instead of lack and scarcity.


As the founder of Redefining Wealth and The Earn More Money Movement for Women, Patrice has built a thriving community of high-achieving women committed to creating a powerful life vision – in their careers, home, health, and personal finances.

“You have everything you need inside of you.”


You may have read or heard this quote from me before, but if I’m being honest, the first time I heard this quote I called BS on it. I mean sure, it’s an empowering concept, but if you don’t know how to look at it from all sides (which I didn’t when I first heard it), it’s disempowering.


But here’s where it does hold true. You do have everything you need right now to start asking questions and to be resourceful. How empowering is that?


“You have all you need to in order to create whatever you’re desiring in your life.”


For example, when I first started my podcast, I knew nothing…I mean nothing about starting a podcast. So I started researching (Google) and finding others who could help me get it off the ground. I was not meant to create all the things by myself. For this particular endeavor, I had the idea and it was up to me to move it forward. It was literally a matter of asking the right questions.


All that’s left to do is start! After all, “pure bliss is becoming the person that you knew you were meant to be.” But it’s up to you to create the experiences in order to bring that person into reality. 


Now to all my over-thinkers out there (you know who you are), you may be coming up with a list a mile long of all the reasons you just can’t do it. But here’s my advice: start now! If you don’t take action, you won’t fulfill your purpose. It sounds harsh, but it’s true.


Don’t worry if things don’t go as planned. Know that it’s all a part of the process and that the universe will provide a soft landing. And even if you feel that sometimes your actions are selfish, know that you’re making progress and it’s somehow affecting someone in a beautiful way.  


Are you with me? Let’s start taking action – big and small steps – now!


In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Why everything you need isn’t inside of you
  • Being resourceful
  • Creating experiences to help you step into your highest purpose

Having grown up in a broken but happy family, today’s guest, Cayla Craft, knew she was meant to do big things and help people. However, she first had to change the lens she was viewing her life through. In order for her to create what she wanted out of life, she had to ditch the mentality of “I am nothing,” and instead share her story to help others.


Once Cayla realized that there was no need to compare her journey with someone else’s, she could stop trying to please everyone, find her purpose, dictate how she lived her life and make herself a priority. And that’s just what she did.


As a result, today Cayla is a self-made millionaire and now teaches other entrepreneurial women how to do the same. She gives women the tools and resources they need to have an abundant mindset and shamelessly pursue their ambitions while still enjoying life.


There were so many moments I related to throughout our conversation and I have a feeling many of you will as well. I would love to hear what those moments are! Happy listening!




Question Highlights:

  • Did you always know that you were going to do big things and help a lot of people?
  • What is something you would say to someone who is still in that push phase or exhausting themselves?
  • When did you know your story was the most powerful thing you could share?
  • What do you tell someone to get started on in order to feel fulfilled and successful?
  • Why is it so important to make sure you’re creating new relationships and leaving old ones behind?
  • Why do we feel like we need to please others and how do we break ourselves from that mindset?
  • If someone is on the verge of having a difficult conversation, what would you tell them?
  • Have you ever experienced “imposter syndrome,” and if so, how did you deal with it?
  • What are your fears right now and how do you handle them?
  • What do you think is the biggest difference between people who are creating the life they love and stepping into their authentic truth and those who aren’t?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Cayla’s upbringing in a broken, but happy home
  • Why Cayla felt like a warrior for so long
  • Removing the lens of “I am nothing.”
  • Why self-awareness is the first step of transformation
  • The importance of doing the internal work
  • Reframing your story and finding your purpose
  • Creating new relationships and leaving behind old relationships that aren’t serving you behind
  • Making yourself a priority
  • Allowing others to feel uncomfortable so they can grow
  • Why we can never take anything personally
  • How Cayla preps when she needs to have difficult/uncomfortable conversations
  • Different perceptions of reality
  • Putting your focus on serving others
  • How Cayla’s raising kids that live empowered and inspired lives
  • Mommy Millionaire Podcast
  • And so much more…




“You’ve already done enough; now it’s time for your message to be heard.”


“You have to change the story – you have to rewrite what you want out of your life.”


“Self-awareness is the first key to transformation.”


“Stop living your life for an audience that doesn’t exist.”


“Stop looking outward and start looking inward.”


“I don’t need to Google – the answers are already inside of me.”




Cayla Craft is a mom of 3, self-made millionaire, and lifestyle entrepreneur. The California native went from saving lives in the ER as a nurse working 9-5 to helping women pursue a passion for owning their own business. Her first taste of success began when she created an organization of 60k+ people for Isagenix, a company that sells health and wellness supplements. From that platform she branched out into business coaching and found incomparable satisfaction from helping others achieve success.


Cayla has helped thousands of women start to believe in themselves as entrepreneurs and business women. Her goal is to help mothers gain insight and confidence in their entrepreneurial endeavors, and grow their business to 7 figures! She gives women the tools and resources they need to have an abundant mindset and shamelessly pursue their ambitions while still enjoying life as a mom.


Cayla created Mommy Millionaire to fill a void of community driven by women searching to grow from good to great. Mommy Millionaire seeks to pour out practical tips and business know-how that is current and relevant to what is working today. Cayla is an expert in speaking about sales, culture, and online marketing with experience in keynote speeches on connecting.

I want to start off by saying a huge thank you to all who listen and follow this podcast. As we fly into 8 million downloads, I have to keep pinching myself to ensure it’s all real. I couldn’t do this without you all and I am so, so grateful that you choose to spend part of your day listening.


A couple months back, I heard the phrase “I am blissfully dissatisfied with my life,” from the amazing Ed Mylett. And I love the balance of the two words because it means being blissfully happy with where you’re at while being equally dissatisfied with wanting more or knowing you have more to give.


“In order to be a happy human, we have to make progress.”


Whether it’s in terms of your health, family, relationships or your business, progress keeps us alive! The other day the idea of being blissfully dissatisfied was brought back into my life when I received a message from a follower. Upon first glance this woman looked like someone I could be friends with – she was a yogi, into wellness etc. – but upon reading the first sentence (I’m going to have to unfollow you because you seem to have a ‘deep dissatisfaction’ with your life), I don’t think we’ll be friends anytime soon. I close the message before I could read the whole thing because honestly, I was breathing fire! Then I took a moment, went back, blocked her and deleted the message. Sure, I could have responded, but people with energy like that are not for me.


So anyway, this message got me thinking back to what Ed Mylett had said and I honestly thought… I am equal parts satisfied and dissatisfied – and I’m totally OK with that. You see, as humans, we’re not wired to be happy. We have a need to be better – for ourselves and others. But in order to find this balance, we can’t be focused on satisfaction in ALL areas at ALL times. We must give ourselves grace in the areas that aren’t the priority and pour ourselves into the other areas despite potential side effects.


So yes, I will never be satisfied, but I will ALWAYS be blissful. And I will always strive to show as much love, grace and compassion to all those who think I feel otherwise.  



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Why progressing is crucial for our happiness
  • How she dealt with an unkind message
  • Giving yourself grace

I’ve been stalking following today’s guest, Jaclyn Johnson’s @createcultivate IG page for quite some time now. In fact, before I knew her personally, her event photos helped inspire me to create my own stage for The Bliss Project. But here’s the thing, Jaclyn’s events are way more than a gorgeous stage – they’re all about collaboration and helping other women create and cultivate the career of their dreams.


Don’t be fooled though, Create & Cultivate conferences aren’t just for entrepreneurs – they’re for all women who are looking for a refresh of inspiration in all things business.


Jaclyn and I talk about her rough start as a naïve 23-year-old entrepreneur who didn’t know what she was doing, the lessons she learned from it and why it helped her become the wildly successful CEO Creative & Cultivate she is today. Jaclyn also shares why Creative & Cultivate is thriving and why she hopes to help others with her new book, WorkParty, by providing tips on how to run a business, how to start thinking like an entrepreneur and how to maintain friendships, relationships and partnerships along the way. Since this interview I’ve completed her book and it’s definitely an inspirational must-read!  




Question Highlights:

  • Where are you at right now and how did you get there?
  • What would you tell someone who’s looking for the next thing to get started and take the leap?
  • What’s a question you’ve never been asked that you think people should ask when they’re starting a business or in a business?
  • What does white space mean?
  • What is a lesson that’s been painful and awesome?
  • How did you learn not to take things personal?
  • What do you do for yourself in order to make decisions and implement the culture you want?
  • What is something you’re most excited about and something you’re working through right now?
  • What is something you do with your team every single week to keep your team cohesive?
  • What are the most important messages of your book, WorkParty?
  • Who is someone you look up to right now for inspiration?
  • What are your Creative & Cultivate events/conferences like?
  • How do you let go of people/relationships that aren’t serving you?
  • Why this book right now and who needs it?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Jaclyn’s entrepreneurial journey started and lead to founding Create & Cultivate
  • Why we tend to be more creative when we have nothing to lose
  • Runway and goal-setting
  • Jaclyn’s definition of “white space” in the business world
  • The importance of getting things in writing in terms of getting serious and legalities
  • Friendships and business
  • Approaching business from a human perspective by not escalating and remaining level-headed and fair
  • Why work is part of Jaclyn’s self-care
  • Keeping separation between business and those friends who are near and dear
  • Scaling and growing a business while maintaining authenticity of the brand
  • The most important messages of Jaclyn’s book, WorkParty
  • Going against the status quo of what business looks like for women
  • Handling hard decisions in the best way
  • Why it’s so much better to collaborate vs. compete with others
  • Why Jaclyn wrote WorkParty
  • And so much more…




“The reason I was wildly successful was because I didn’t play by the rules.”


“You’ll never know unless you just do it.”


“Start by just starting.”


“Collaboration over competition.”


“So much more can happen if we’re on the same team.”




Jaclyn Johnson is a powerhouse entrepreneur. By the time she was 28, she had sold her first business, (No Subject), invested in one of the country’s top female owned startups, Away, and launched her second multimillion dollar company, Create & Cultivate.


Johnson recognized a gap in resources for female millennial entrepreneurs and responded with solutions, Create & Cultivate and now, WorkParty. In the process, Jaclyn’s own philosophy, built on female empowerment, hustling-hard and innovation have propelled her voice to the forefront of the discussion on career, a new thought-leader for millennial women and Gen-Z-ers.

Known for her powerful messaging and often imitated never duplicated style of digital and experiential marketing, Johnson is reshaping attitudes on female entrepreneurialism, work culture and the gig economy for women all over the world.

In August, Jaclyn’s new book, WorkParty releases via Simon & Schuster, offering her rallying cry for women in the workplace.

Today’s episode is a super special quickie and it involves something I’ve been manifesting for years. While I was wrapping up my three-week European vacation I received notice that I was selected to be a speaker on one of the Oprah Magazine Cruises – yes, THE Oprah! My mind is still whirling from this news.


I firmly believe that this opportunity came up after I finally cleared enough stuff to make room for it while I allowed myself to recharge and get away on my trip. And honestly, as odd as it sounds, once I was able to actually “let go” of my dream to meet Oprah (there was literally a dream where it happened – listen to hear about it) and know that either way, I’m OK – it happened. It’s all about living into your gifts.


Here’s a little Manifestation 101 on how I was able to live into my Oprah manifestation:

  1. You have to put the work in, believe in a little bit of magic and have faith. Allow that dream to look different and probably the most important – be patient.
  2. Focus on why you’re awesome and what you love about yourself. Who or what brings out that part of you?
  3. Be the energy you want to attract. Raise your vibration to get there.
  4. Get clear and declare it. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve likely heard my Oprah dream quite a few times. ;)
  5. Release it. You are significant and loved regardless of whether or not this dream happens.

You’re going to love today’s guest, Angie Lee, as she’s a wise old soul at the core but not even 30 years old! She and I go back 10 years to a fitness camp we attended together. Since that time she’s become this powerhouse business woman who loves sharing her light and knowledge with others.


Today, we’re dialing into the present and talking about Angie’s upcoming book, Raise Your Hand as well as her Pays to Be Brave event in October – and all the fears and doubts that come up as a result. She believes that being bold is key and that “no’s” are imperative to anyone’s journey.


I hope you enjoy a good mixture of silliness and seriousness because you’ll get a big dose of both in this episode! Don’t be surprised if you’re ready to write your own book or host an event after listening! 




Question Highlights:

  • What is the most exciting thing in your life right now?
  • What is the journey your event is taking you on and reflecting back at you right now?
  • What is your new book about?
  • Why aren’t women “raising their hands?”
  • How can we deal with getting no’s?
  • What is something right now that’s pushing on your solar plexus that you have to ask for?
  • Can you share one of your “what was I thinking” moments that’s also helped you grow?
  • How do we tell the difference between a gut check and fear?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Angie’s upcoming event, “Pays to Be Brave,” blends both woo-woo and business together
  • Intuitive organic marketing
  • Battling and pushing through fear
  • Why being bold is one of the most important qualities a woman can have
  • Putting a value on what you have to offer and how that correlates with your worth
  • Money as an energy exchange
  • Handing off (or hiring out) things that aren’t in your zone of genius
  • Dealing with negative feedback
  • Why polarity is necessary
  • The difference between the skillsets of an entrepreneur vs. a leader
  • The importance of gut checks and not just what’s on paper
  • And so much more…



“I treat the marketing and numbers like they’re real people.”


“It’s OK to hear no because it also may be a yes down the road.”


“It’s never as bad as we make it out to be.”


“The business doesn’t grow unless the team grows.”



Angie Lee is the hilarious + wicked smart business bestie you've always wanted. A serial entrepreneur, vibrant speaker, life coach & business mentor, Angie's genius is helping women embrace fear, take messy action and monetize their passion. 


Corporate + College dropout, $100k in debt to 7-figure entrepreneur under 30, Angie's passion runs deep for helping women unlock their full potential to finally create the income and life they desire. Angie is the host of the top-rated The Angie Lee Show, the Founder of Pays to Be Brave Summit and the upcoming self-published author of Raise Your Hand.

It never gets old seeing and hearing what readers are resonating within A Tribe Called Bliss. I love hearing what people are taking away and what makes that light bulb turn on for them. Recently, I’ve seen a lot of people calling out the following quote:


“He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.” – Raymond Hull


We’ve all been guilty of this at one time or another, and I think it’s been such an a-ha moment for people in the book because it’s giving others permission to step even more into themselves and be who they truly are – regardless of what other people will think.


So what part of yourself have you been whittling away in order to make someone else happy? Are you hiding a part of yourself because you’re afraid to show that part? Or is it because you’re surrounding yourself with people who aren’t the right fit for where you’re at?


It’s time to get real with yourself – dig deep. What do YOU need right now? Look from all angles, and STOP turning the volume down on who you are. Is it easy? Um, not quite, but I will tell you this:


“The highest good doesn’t always feel good.”


This is where you must confront any resistance you have head on and grow from it. Find out who you truly are. If you’ve whittled yourself so far down that you don’t even know who you are, it’s time to get to work.


First, figure out what emotion is the most important for you to live in. Then, choose one thing a day that helps you live it out. It could be reading or listening to podcasts, but what I’m really looking for are tangible actions. DO something! And don’t worry if you try something and it’s not the right fit. Trust me, you’ll know immediately, just has you’ll instantly know if it’s the “right” thing.


So who’s with me? It’s time to put that inspiration into action.



In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Importance of following your bliss, joy, pleasure and where you’re being guided
  • Constantly seeking resistance in order to grow
  • Taking inspired action

My guest today, yogi and wellness coach, Koya Webb, personifies the word love. We were fortunate enough to chat in person, but I know you’ll feel her warm energy through the recording as well. And with a platform that encourages people to “love yourself, love others, and love the planet,” it’s no wonder.


Raised in small-town Tennessee, Koya was counting on athletics to get her out into the world. Unfortunately, right at the time of a life-changing conference meet, she suffered a stress fracture in her back. Devastated, she heeded the advice of her counselor and took up yoga and breath work to help her rehab. Even though her first yoga class was anything but easy, Koya was in love at first breath. In fact, she found herself completely rehabbed in 6 months and went on to win a conference event the following year.


Also during that time, Koya learned to slow down and listen to her body. Today, she credits this practice along with yoga, meditation and maintaining a plant-based diet for the high-vibing life she lives every day.


Koya offers so much valuable insight into living a vegan lifestyle (or just dabbling in it), and if you get one thing out of our conversation it would be to stop and truly tune into what your body is saying. You never know what it will tell you if you pay attention.




Question Highlights:

  • What is most exciting for you in your world right now?
  • What is your upcoming book about?
  • What was your life’s big pivot point?
  • How old were you when you first started listening to your body?
  • What would you tell people if they’ve never let their feelings lead them? Where should people start?
  • Does being vegan ever bring up challenges for you?
  • Are there practical ways to start dabbling in a more plant-based diet?
  • What is the most impactful thing that’s shifted for you since becoming plant-based?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Koya’s yoga teacher training course
  • Koya’s upcoming book
  • Changing your frequency from fear to love
  • Why yoga and meditation help connect you to your soul
  • How a stress fracture in her back led Koya to discover yoga and breath work
  • The importance of listening to your body and slowing down when it feels called to
  • How Koya practices what she teaches in her teacher training
  • The benefits of plant-based diet
  • Why online-bought food carries a higher vibration
  • How Koya navigates eating when out vs. at home
  • And so much more…



“Yoga is the perfect tool.”


“You can’t love others to the detriment of yourself.”


“You can thrive and have a lot of energy, gain weight or lose weight on a plant-based diet.”


“Wherever you are on your journey, you are loved.”



Koya Webb is an internationally recognized yoga teacher, personal trainer, holistic health and wellness coach, author, motivational speaker, and professional fitness model revolutionizing the holistic living landscape. She is the creator of Get Loved Up, a platform that encourages people to “love yourself, love others, and love the planet” by practicing environmental sustainability, plant-based nutrition, and mindful movement.

The other night I went to a Soul Cycle class despite the voice inside my head that told me I didn’t want to go and didn’t have the energy to move my legs that fast (can you relate?). But after coming off of my three-week vacation, I was struggling. My re-entry back into “reality” has been tough.


Thankfully my Soul Cycle instructor gave me the wake-up call (or question) that led to a shift.


“What is a gift you could give yourself right now that would make your day or life better?”


I actually surprised myself with the answer…an attitude adjustment. Whoa, seems a bit harsh, huh? But here’s the thing. Now is not the time to take it easy on myself. I’ve still got a lot of things I want to do. And one of those things, was getting back into the groove with my podcast interviews.


I had a ton of resistance around my scheduled interviews this week, but once I remembered how much I enjoy talking with such incredible humans, I changed my tune.


“Sitting in resistance is a choice.”


Sitting in resistance was not serving me. It was time to lean in and start asking myself questions instead. What would it look and feel like if I was back in the groove of things? What if I let go and enjoyed it? What would that look like?


“If it’s something you’re choosing to have on your plate because you want it there, you can let go of the resistance.”


I realize that letting go can be hard and it takes a lot of thought. Trust me, that has been me for the last week. But just start small by asking questions – don’t force it. You’ll find that once you start envisioning all the good things, your energy will increase, too. Resistance, while sometimes helpful, only sucks your energy away. Let’s do the opposite by ramping up your energy instead and watch as more shows up.


I hope this message prompts you to take a moment today to figure out what you need the most, move through resistance and lean in. 


In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • Discovering what you really need to give yourself
  • Why Lori gave herself an attitude adjustment
  • Letting go of resistance and leaning in

Today’s guest, Tim Storey, is someone I’ve wanted to have on Earn Your Happy since before it was officially a thing. So you can imagine that I was practically levitating from excitement (and let’s be honest, I still am) to chat with him. If you’ve never heard of Tim, you’re missing out because he’s a master at moving people into action and helping people turn setbacks into comebacks. Seriously, when Tim speaks his energy comes out of his pores!


Realizing early on he wanted to help heal others, in our conversation we talk about where it all began (picture seven people in a two-bedroom house) and how he credits his upbringing to helping him think big in small places. We touch on spending time with people who get you (your tribe) and why we all need to start paying attention and be an observer to all the discoveries around us.


You may want to listen to this episode twice (I know I’ll be listening again) just to take in each and every one of his wisdom-filled words. I can’t wait to hear your takeaways!




Question Highlights:

  • How did you become a speaker?
  • How can we enjoy the discovery while in the recovery zone?
  • Do you still have slumps and dry spells?
  • What are some of the key things that help you speak with full expression, and how did you get to that place?
  • What made you hold onto what your 6th grade teacher told you and make it your north star? What made it stand out?
  • For people who feel like they need to change to be something or they don’t feel like they’re ready for the “thing,” what would you tell them?
  • Do we have to make an empowering reason as to why we’re in a “winter?”
  • How do you know the distinction of when to share certain things with others?
  • How does one not get intimidated by the thought of mastery, but instead be almost pulled by their message to mastery?
  • How do people know when to go to the next level of work?


In This Episode We Talk about:

  • What moved Tim to become a speaker and help heal others
  • Why the recovery zone is the common denominator
  • Staying in the moment during your discovery
  • Going back to being curious and innocent again
  • Changing the channel of what you’re thinking and how Tim shifts his channel
  • Tuning into the right things at the right times
  • Being with people who get you (your tribe)
  • Why Tim still holds onto his 6th grade teacher’s standard
  • Breathing life into others through speaking
  • Why people oftentimes must go left before they go right
  • What Tim did when he was served papers while he was speaking at an event
  • Why your testimony is the most powerful thing you have
  • The Law of Harvest
  • Why we can’t look for results every day
  • And so much more…



“Unlock your discovery just by paying attention and observing.”


“If you’re not careful, life will knock the curiosity out of you.”


“Feed your faith, starve your doubt.”


“What I say, I live.”


“Set to be settled to be seasoned to soar.”


“You are seasoned for a reason. “


“You can handle the left and right at the same time.”


“Not all things should be spoken…some things should be left behind.”


“Don’t get stuck in the result.”

I just wrapped up my three-week trip traveling through Europe and phew – it definitely rocked my world! Yes, the experiences were amazing, but as a person who loves her rituals and who has habits that are deeply engrained, it felt a bit daunting at first. If I would have taken this trip five years ago, I would have left 20 pounds heavier because I would have just given it the all-or-nothing approach. Anyone else?


The difference of taking this trip now? Even though my life was tipped upside down in terms of bedtime, food, drinks and activity, I made a conscious effort to figure it out. In order to do this though I had to give up the belief that it would be impossible for me to feel good and happy.


“In order to change a habit, you have to change a belief. And in order to change a belief, you have to change a habit.”


Spoiler Alert: I feel amazing! “Control freak” Lori went on a vacation of her own! And it’s all because I figured out how to let go and surrender.


Here are five things that help me change a limiting habit or belief”


  1. You have to believe that whatever you’re desiring is possible for you. For me, it meant applying an abundance mindset to everything. I don’t have to eat ALL this amazing food or have multiple drinks because I know there will be more tomorrow and I can have some then, too.
  2. Gather evidence of why it’s possible. Look at the people and culture around you. Why can’t this be possible for me?
  3. Gather evidence of how you’ve been lying to yourself about the other belief to keep yourself safe.
  4. Look at why you’re afraid to believe something is different. Surrendering can be scary, but sometimes certainty can be worse.

    “Surrender opens the door to something that changes your life.”

  5. Do that new thing/habit/belief for as long as you need to until something shifts. It won’t happen overnight, but don’t stop just because it’s uncomfortable – keep at it.


I challenged myself the entire three weeks I was gone, but as I stated above, I feel great – and I ate and drank what I wanted and walked a ton. Will I keep up with the late suppers, nights and overall structure? Maybe about 30% to allow myself a bit more freedom, but my new rule of thumb?


“If it feels good, explore it.”


I encourage you to do the same by challenging your beliefs and doing it until you feel a shift, too.




In This Episode Lori talks about:


  • How Lori busted through her habits and beliefs
  • Figuring out the art of letting go and surrendering
  • Five things that go into changing a habit or belief
