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?

  • 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

  • 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…

 

Quotes

 

“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.

 

I would love to see you on the Oprah Cruise (to the Bahamas) with me! Check out the link in the resources and let’s fill that ship up with the highest-vibing people ever! It will be like a boat version of Bliss Project! Be sure to message or tag me on Instagram if you’re in – I cannot wait!

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!

  • 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

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…

 

Quotes

“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.”

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…

 

Quotes

“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.

I had such a blast talking with Lauryn Evarts and Michael Bosstick, the hosts of The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER show, in person! While commonly known for their podcast, I quickly learned about their other endeavors that created the foundation of where they are today and how various parts of our journeys are so similar.

In this episode, you’ll hear about how this power couple met (and came to work together), the ins and outs of branding and why community, patience and adding value is key when trying to grow your business or brand.

  • What are some of your favorite podcasts?

It comes as a shock to many that before I wrote my book (and sometimes during the process) I’d never seen myself as a writer. I had no previous background; I just knew I wanted to write a book. However, any time I had that thought, I quickly inserted a “but I’m not a writer.” Now that I’ve published my book, I realize that my internal dialogue was clearly trying to steer me wrong.

 

So today I want to talk about the difference between the things we say in our mind and what we really are. It’s time to call out those things we want to do, but never do because our minds offer up an alternate story as to why we can’t. Using writing as an example, “I want to write a book, but I’m not a good writer.” Guess what? Neither was I and that’s why you find really good editors, writing coaches and other skilled people to help you through it.

 

“Remove the ‘buts,’ and become the person you know you are.”

 

You are not meant to do everything on your own! No one does it on their own. I personally have a team who helps with all my day-to-day tasks (and so many other things). Focus on your strengths and let others help you by using theirs too.

 

Furthermore, it’s OK to be a beginner again. Just because you don’t know how to do something, doesn’t mean it wasn’t meant for you. It will be uncomfortable but If something resonates with you, it’s because it is you. And that my friend is what makes you pure magic.

 

I hope this message spurs you to go after your passions and step into who you truly are despite the doubts swimming in your head. The world is waiting for you!

 

Before I go…I’m so grateful for you all and have one small request. If you feel called, it would mean the world to me if you’ve read my book to leave a review and rating on Amazon. You are the reason my book is reaching so many women around the world and I want to keep this tribe momentum going. Thank you so, so much!

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Calling out the stories in your head
  • Being a beginner again
  • Why you need help to fulfill your true purpose

From living in a one-bedroom apartment with his family of five to dumpster diving, each family member contributed in some way so they could live a better life. But where many people would use the adversities he and his family faced as an excuse not to go after their dreams, Bedros made them his why and set out determined to help others.

 

Today as an author, speaker and business consultant, Bedros is able to share his unique wisdom with people through his business Fit Body Bootcamp, speaking engagements and his upcoming new book, Man Up.

I feel that energy is the most valuable commodity – and how awesome is it that it’s something we can help control? So with that in mind, what are you giving your energy to today?

 

Ever notice that when you’re feeling low energy or tired that the things that seem big, scary or stressful seem even bigger, scarier or more stressful? When this happens, we know we’re not supporting that habits that keep us fully energized.

 

While talking at the gym the other day with my friend, Mark Karpenko, he told me that we’re all only given 100 watts of energy a day. Wow. Only 100 watts and often they’re not being spent wisely.

 

Sometimes we’re not waking up at 100 watts for a number of reasons. Whether it’s because the kids were up late or a relationship is weighing heavily on our hearts, or perhaps we’re just taking too many things personally – our energy is being drained. The good news?

 

“We can always change something.”

 

Get more sleep. Move your body or meditate. Eat better foods. And sometimes the most difficult (but often most helpful), be mindful of who you’re spending your time with. Don’t give up any of that wattage to things that don’t support love and your true talents and gifts. Be quick to forgive and let the small stuff roll of your back.

 

What will you give a “watt” about today?

 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • How lack of energy magnifies any worries or problems we have
  • Ways to increase your energy
  • Giving a “watt” about the things that serve you and our purpose

I am so I love with today’s guest, Cara Alwill Leyba, author, entrepreneur and founder of The Champagne Diet, and I know you’ll love her too (if you don’t already) after listening to our conversation.

 

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Cara worked for several years in corporate at MTV, but felt stuck knowing she really wanted to be a writer. She founded her blog, The Champagne Diet, and eventually self-published her first book, Girl Code. Since then she’s published several other books and her newest book, Like She Owns the Place releases July 10 (see Resources to get your copy and buy one for a friend, too!).

 

Cara shares vulnerably and is super transparent about the unglamorous side of business. She does this in an effort to show other women what it really looks like when things fall apart and how we can shift our perspectives, find the good and remember who we were before things fell apart.

 

This is such an empowering, feel-good episode and I can’t wait for you to enjoy it…perhaps with a glass of champagne (not if you’re driving!). ;-)

  • What do you do when you work with women and there’s a consistent worry about judgment and what others think?
  • What’s something that’s come from leveling up and helped your growth?
  • What does success look like for you right now and what does the next level look like?
  • How do we stay in a state of success, but still desire and strive for other things?

On how to make yourself happy…“Make yourself feel something you’ve never felt before.”

Today we’re talking about who you have to become in order to start creating, manifesting and maintaining relationships in your life. Not long ago, I had a desire to hang out with higher-level friends. Now, don’t get me wrong, the friends I had at the time were great friends, but I was looking for something a little deeper.

 

I wanted to have a true tribe of people who had a more expanded mindset, financial thermostat, bigger goals and no limits on their beliefs or possibilities. And it wasn’t just about fitting in because we already know how awesome we are.

 

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as who you become by achieving your goals.”  – Zig Ziglar

 

It’s about adding value and contributing to the relationship on equal levels. If you’re someone who has already up-leveled, you’re no stranger to people contacting you and wanting to “pick your brain” or have coffee and talk business. While it may be flattering, you know it’s not something you want to commit to until you see what they can bring to the table to. It’s not personal when you politely decline (or someone declines your invitation), It’s about finding those people who expand your mindset, don’t question what’s possible and cheer you on.

 

“Be someone who they want to connect with.”

 

One important distinction… don’t change who you are at your core to fit in with someone who isn’t a great match. Just be the most authentic version of yourself! At first, I honestly thought I had to be an expert on the science of self-development principles, but I found that it wasn’t true. Depending on the group or situation, I actually added value in a variety of ways, such as being goofy, holding space, listening or giving advice. So just do YOU! Be authentic, find out who you are and be a person who adds value.

 

I know it’s not always easy to put yourself out there to new groups of people. OK, it can be downright scary sometimes. But do it anyway, because the things that bring you the most joy are often hidden underneath fear and resistance.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Who you have to become in order to hang with higher-level friends
  • Bringing value to the table (50/50)
  • Stepping into your truth and authenticity

It’s always a good day when my friend, Mastin Kipp, is on the show because I always learn something – and our recent conversation was no different.

 

Today we’re talking about how trauma – of all kinds – can hinder the building of tribes (love that we both believe in the power of tribe) and how we can take the steps to build a life and business without anxiety. You know the saying, “your vibe attracts your tribe?” Well, Mastin and I discuss on how even your tone of voice, facial expressions and hand gestures can do the same.

 

Mastin is one of the most authentic, value-offering people I know because he loves his work and isn’t afraid to dive deep and get to the root causes that are often times emotional. I resonated with so many of things Mastin talked about and I can’t wait to hear what you think.

Today I’m in Phoenix for the last stop of my book tour, but I recently decided that I may attempt another round later this year because I’m having so much fun with them. Sure, we talk about some pretty serious stuff, but we get to laugh with each other while we do it – and that is SO fantastic! It’s so gratifying to see another dream of mine come true. And if you’ve been following me for a while, you know this dream didn’t happen overnight.

 

Speaking of which, while going through some of my social media posts the other day so I could get a feel what’s resonating most with people lately, I found a post about dreams that hit a major chord.

 

When you ask for something, when you really want something, you gotta know that it’s not getting delivered in its final form. It’s like going to IKEA, picking out your favorite kitchen and furniture to fill your house and saying, “Yeah, that’s pretty! I love it! I want it! I’ll take that!” Then going home to a pile of confusing parts you have to put together yourself only to realize you don’t own any tools and your dog ate the instructions. Yup, that’s how your dreams get delivered – they show up one day at your door as a pile of lessons that you do not yet have the skills or tools to navigate. That pile of lessons, tough relationships and lack of skills serve as your opportunity to figure out how to be resourceful and become the person who can handle building and maintaining the dream. Yup, I have a love-hate relationship with IKEA and building my dreams, but I sure enjoy who I’ve become as a result of figuring out the messes and overwhelm when I realize it’s all gonna be beautiful on the other side.”

 

Dreams don’t just magically appear – as much as we wish they did. It’s about getting resourceful and finding others who can help you toward them.

 

“The only thing you need to do is take the action.”

 

You don’t have to have all the answers right away. You don’t have to be “ready.” But when you’re shooting for your dreams you’re also going to be in a constant state of testing and figuring out what works…and what doesn’t. It’s not going to feel good all the time and you may feel a little crazy at times, but that’s not a bad thing. Experiencing the bad helps us appreciate the success that much more.

 

So support your dream. For me, I love my podcast. I love talking with other amazing humans and learning new things. However, I don’t love the scheduling, editing, posting, and that’s why I have an incredible team that helps me with it. So if you’re saying, “I love this, but not this,” find a way to change your perspective about your dream. How is this not-so-fun part helping you achieve your dream?

 

“Be willing to feel lost on a daily basis. Security is not real.”

 

You’re never going to feel ready, but keep reframing, changing your perspective and never give up. Me personally?

 

“I don’t stop until I create what I wish existed.”

 

Just go with it! Take action (big or small) and make your wildest dreams come true!

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • What dreams look like when they’re delivered
  • How to support your dreams (get resourceful)
  • Taking action before you’re ready

It is such a massive honor to have today’s guest, Andy Frisella, on the show today. He is such an inspiration to me and I encourage you to listen and hold onto each and every single raw and honest word he speaks.

As a successful entrepreneur in the sports supplementation industry as well as a wildly successful podcaster, Andy LOVES what he does every day because he’s changing people’s lives. But this wasn’t always the case. A once self-professed fat kid eating Dorito’s who never completed anything, Andy realized he needed to make a change ­– even if that meant getting uncomfortable to do it.

Andy shares his journey with us and opens up to tell us how being stabbed radically changed his perspective on the world and how it also accidentally got him into business. Now he’s able to use his business and platform to make an impact and help others.

While you won’t hear Andy mincing words over any naysayers, you will hear him telling it like it is. If you’re looking for permission to do the same and also cut out the negativity in your life, look no further – Andy is walking permission to be REAL.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What do you tell people whose backs aren’t against the wall… How do they get there?
  • How does the Law of Attraction work for you?
  • What do you do when you feeling like you’re going downhill (fear, doubt etc.)?
  • Growing up, did you feel like there was more?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Andy’s journey from a fat kid eating Dorito’s and not finishing anything to the success he is today
  • The “zero option mentality”
  • Getting uncomfortable to continue growing and evolving
  • How Andy is driven by negativity/the dark side
  • Being resourceful with your energies and motivators
  • Transferring negativity and pain into productive things that help other people
  • How Andy came back after being stabbed in the face and how it helped him connect and boost his business
  • The Law of Attraction
  • Looking for miracles
  • Building a business around purpose vs. making money
  • The Powerless Method (ep. 107 of The MFCEO Podcast – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/win-the-day-with-andy-frisella-mfceo107/id1012570406?i=1000377906163&mt=2)
  • Eliminating the negative people who aren’t contributing positively in your life
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Even though it feels good now, it’s not going to feel OK 10-15 years down the road.”

 

“Creating progress takes a conscious effort to be uncomfortable.”

 

“I store the negative stuff inside and turn it into productive action.”

 

“It’s not about having all the resources. It’s about being resourceful with what you have, and that includes your energies and motivations.”

 

“Almost everything can be turned into something good.”

 

“It’s not something we choose to happen, it’s something that’s happening to everybody – they’re just not realizing it.”

 

“If you want to be great at what you do, make a business built around a purpose vs. being built around making money.”

 

“Fill your boat with propellers – not anchors.”

My book tour is coming to a close with one event left in Phoenix, and I have to say that I’ve fallen in love with being in rooms surrounded by so many amazing people and learning from them as well. As you’ve heard in other episodes, I’ve found new takeaways from each stop – but so many reoccurring themes as well.

 

Another overarching topic is about taking things personally. Getting through this, of course, has a lot to do with mastering our mindset, but it helps to understand what it feels like before you get there.

 

Question: If you didn’t take things personally, what could you do in your life? I’ve asked this question at my book tour stops and the answers are endless, but the most common response? “I could be happy.” Whoa!

 

You see, when we worry about what other people think we’re putting ourselves in our own form of prison. Don’t stifle your truth just to please someone else. I highly encourage you to ruffle feathers, share your opinions and share who you authentically are at your core.

 

“If you’re not upsetting people, you’re not living in your truth – you’re living in fear.”

 

Be yourself. Stop people pleasing. Make some waves. I know this is a hard thing to do, but it feels SO good. Trust me, I’m a people pleaser through and through, but by sparing other people pain, you’re only adding more pain to your life.

 

“Freedom and truth are the opposite of suppression and resentment.”

 

Does this mean you’ll never take something personal again? Heck no. It is a constant practice of self-love and you will learn how to release it more quickly. It’s also one of our best teachers in life that helps us develop more compassion and understanding from where other people are coming from.

 

So the next time someone offers their opinion and you take it personally, make a conscious effort to release, forgive and move on…and live a happy life.

 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why we need to stop taking things personally
  • Living authentically and in your truth
  • Why it’s an ongoing self-love practice to not take things personally

I’m still on my book tour, and it means the world to me to share the room with so many amazing women. And while it’s a massive dream come true, it’s also forced me to make some massive perspective shifts when it comes to traveling, speaking, signing books and taking pictures. I’ll be honest, it can be a lot for this introvert who is prone get to getting anxiety! But once I’m able to slow down and change my perspective on it all – there’s no way I wouldn’t do what I’m doing. It’s just all about changing the way we view things.

 

One question I pose to my book tour audiences is, “what’s stopping you from connecting in different relationships?”

 

“In order for things to change, we have to change how we’re viewing things.”

 

Whether it’s your body, career or relationships, it is imperative that we shift our perspectives before anything can happen. We need to shift into how we want to feel.

 

It’s amazing how this small little thing (OK, not always the easiest task), can give you tons of energy back. No matter what you’re feeling anxiety around, change the lens you’re viewing it through and see how you can make it easier. There could be a different (and better) way.

 

Do this, and you’ll be on the fast track to changing your life.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Shifting your perspectives
  • Why the way we view things may be preventing connection
  • What Lori’s book tour is teaching her

My interview with Heather Askisone and Timmi Jandro, the founders of Energy Muse, was a conversation that was meant to happen. In recent years, I’ve become super intrigued with the use of crystals and it was incredible to dive deeper, learn some new things and also receive validation on some crazy coincidences in my life that involved crystals.

 

Best friends since the 1st grade, Heather and Timmi weren’t always interested in crystals. In fact, both were in different careers (business and high-end real estate) up until they founded Energy Muse 17 hears ago. With their combined experience of healing and business, they are now taking the woo-woo out of crystals and empowering people to make change starting today.

 

I know there will be some skeptics out there, but I have a feeling they’ll feel differently after listening. It’s all about good energy! I highly recommend taking their crystal test on their site to see which stones you’re drawn to – they may just help you through your next challenge. (And if you feel called to do so, I would love it if you shared which ones you chose and what they mean!)

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you both start out on this journey?
  • Who do you typically give the amethyst stone to?
  • When did you realize there was something there for you with crystals? What made you dive deeper?
  • Do you keep different crystals throughout your house or through different times?
  • What was the main reason you decided to write your book, Crystal Muse?
  • How does energy alignment with the moon relate to crystals?
  • Do you have any rituals in your book that help people feel grounded or rooted when they’re at a tipping point?
  • What is the most exciting thing that’s coming up for you with your book release?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Heather and Timmi first met and their backgrounds before founding Energy Muse
  • How energies/stones resonate with people differently
  • The innocence of picking a crystal for the first time
  • The shift that took place when Heather gave Timmi a prosperity necklace
  • How crystals can help us feel and serve as a reminder to slow down
  • Energy Muse’s internal challenge to pick one stone and work with it for 21 days
  • Their new book, Crystal Muse, and why it’s a book of secrets that offers rituals done in 11 minutes or less to render results
  • Emotional moon in Scorpio
  • Why humans are looking to reconnect with each other more than ever
  • What it means to “energetically cut the cord”
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“When you feel, you start healing.”

 

“The more I stopped and slowed down, the more my life moved forward.”

 

“There are so many juicy concepts and conversations that one stone can help you evolve into and unearth.”

 

“The beauty of finding out who you are and where you are at that time is powerful.”

 

“The more we plug into the light right now, the more we are going to be able to get out of the chaos and confusion.”

 

“We, the people, are the bridge between the worlds – the earth and the sky.”

 

“You’re going to feel the pain, but it doesn’t have to last forever.”

I’m in New York this week having just wrapped up my stop in Boston for the book tour and it was another magical night. It’s so great having conversations with other women – especially those who have or are reading the book and are looking to connect with other women, too! It’s also super interesting to see what common questions are popping up between book tour stops.

 

One common theme that’s coming up, both at the book events and online, is how people are afraid to take leaps and try new things – they feel stuck. Personally, I know I’m wasting time when I start asking myself a lot of questions and stop taking action. All of the what if’s, stalling and procrastination – anything to prevent me from doing anything that might bring me some sort of pain. Does that sound familiar to you at all?

 

“We get stuck focusing on the pain instead of the motivation.”

 

But here’s the thing (and I have to remind myself of this daily), we don’t come out of the womb knowing what to do. Take riding a bike… can you imagine if as a child, we just kept thinking about the pain of the fall, scraping our knees or bumping our heads? We would have never ditched those training wheels! Instead, we imagined how free it would feel to cruise around.

 

So, take back your power. Quit focusing on the fall. Focus on the freedom. And don’t look back.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why people feel like they’re “stuck”
  • Taking back your power
  • Why we need stop focusing on the pain and focus on the good

I am utterly fascinated at the diverse background of today’s guest and fellow podcaster, Luke Storey. With a journey that began as a high school dropout, Luke has hit career stops along the way as a musician, fashion stylist and now health and wellness podcaster. I honestly wish we would have had more time to delve into each avenue of his journey, but we were able to touch on so many inspiring topics the led him through each one.

 

A self-professed work in progress, I love that Luke focuses on staying teachable. He’s not afraid to examine each aspect of his life to find out what’s in alignment and what isn’t in order to live in his highest purpose day in and day out. Luke has committed to maintaining a balance of talent and passion, but that often means keeping his ego in check.

 

Tune in to hear how Luke manages to keep just the right level of humility without sacrificing his gifts or self-worth – all while staying true to who he is. This was such an insightful episode – I cannot wait to hear what you took away from it, too!

Question Highlights:

  • What brought you to do what you’re doing now?
  • What did the journey feel like when you discovered that living in your potential soothes you?
  • What were some of the biggest things you pulled from each of your career stops?
  • What does it look like, on a daily basis, when you’re working through something while also being humble and still being fully you?
  • How can you practice being in a relationship when you’re not in a relationship?
  • What are you most excited about?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Luke’s diverse background in music, fashion, speaking, health and wellness and how it led him to the present moment
  • The balance of talent and passion
  • How Luke got his start in fashion styling
  • Living in different purposes throughout one’s life
  • The need for significance and one’s interpretation of humility
  • Integrating the ego with one’s endeavors and work
  • Not attaching worth to one’s gifts
  • The importance of staying teachable
  • The pursuit of pleasure
  • How Luke is getting clear on who he is and what he has to offer
  • Relationships – romantic and platonic
  • Gratitude work
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Once you figure any area of your life out and get some help, the only key to true fulfillment is passing that on to other people and living a life of service.”

 

“It’s owning that I’ve worked my ass off and learned a lot, but there’s also plenty left to learn.”

 

“Don’t believe everything you think.”

 

“Build a relationship with whatever it is that makes your heart beat all day, every day.”

You’ve likely heard it before, but I’ll say it again… This thing called life can be so, so challenging. With lots of new situations popping up for me and speaking to audiences that I normally wouldn’t talk to, I’ve determined that getting through it all has to do with mastering my mindset.

 

Because when you put yourself out there in a new and vulnerable way, you’re not going to be supported by everyone. You’re going to have those people who judge you or say unkind things to you because you’ve “changed” or perhaps it’s someone who wishes they were doing what you’re doing. Always remember that it’s not about you – it’s them.

 

“The more you shift into the person you know you were meant to be, the more you change.”

 

When we allow fear or the opinions of others to get into our head, we are stopping ourselves from living the life we were meant to live. It’s a choice to tune into the small minds or let them fall away. I’m not saying they won’t affect you at times, but you must always return to that place of love and happiness within yourself.

 

Decide what matters and whose opinions are valuable to you. Personally, when I am living in my authentic power and truth, nothing else matters besides what my Creator and my family think (in that order).

 

“We are radically responsible for our own energy.”

 

So, determine what brings you back to that place of love and happiness – in all you do. I find that I’m able to drown out of the noise by bringing in more good (creating, dancing, writing surfing etc.). What helps you?

 

Whatever it is, know that we need you to show up in whatever makes you unique. Don’t let anyone else try to tell you different. YOU get to live this life exactly the way your Creator intended and that is pure bliss.

  • Mastering your mindset
  • Determining what and whose opinions matter to you
  • Living the life you were created to live

Have you ever had one of those conversations that happened right when you needed it? Well, let’s just say that my chat with today’s guest, Sarah Centrella, was divinely timed. I always say that my podcast was created so I could selfishly get advice for myself, and this episode delivered.

 

About 10 years ago, Sarah was a stay-at-home mom, married to her high school sweetheart with 3 kids. She thought she and her husband were building this picture-perfect life, but the market turned and she discovered her husband was cheating on her. It was in this moment, broke and divorced, that her life as she knew it changed.

 

As one could expect, Sarah was shell-shocked. But when the dust settled a bit, she came to the realization that she was in control and had the power to decide who she was going to be. An avid fan of Oprah (who isn’t?), she decided to try a vision board after seeing it on her show. Little did Sarah know that 1.5 years later, her vision board would come to life.

 

Realizing that it was no coincidence that her vision board and life matched, she created another and watched those things come to fruition as well. Seeing a trend, Sarah interviewed several people to hear their success stories and discovered that there were eight common steps – regardless of the highs and lows – between all of them.

 

Today, Sarah uses this 8-step plan to help everyone – whether it’s a live coaching appearance or in her book, Hustle Believe Receive – create and manifest the life of their dreams. She encourages action on a daily basis to keep moving that needle toward your end goal/vision.

 

I loved our talk so much as it’s a great reminder to myself that no one is perfect and we all question our path and struggle from time to time. If you’re frustrated with where you’re at with your dreams, be sure to listen to get an instant pick-me-up! Enjoy!    

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Where did your story begin?
  • What did the journey look like following that sliver of hope?
  • How did you create your vision board, what were the tools around it and how did you use it?
  • What made your vision board life happen?
  • Do you do something daily to get into that mindset?
  • Do you find that some people are afraid to dream or think bigger when it comes to vision boards?
  • Can you share what the 8-Step manifestation process looks like?
  • Where does step 6 (Do it – Hustle) come from?
  • What is the “Live it” step about?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Where Sarah’s story started
  • What moment marked the end of her life as she knew it
  • When and how Sarah came to create her first vision board
  • How Sarah brought her vision board to life
  • Why we must focus on the life (not the things) we want
  • The importance of linking feelings to the images on your vision boards
  • Using Pinterest to find your vision board images
  • Getting present and resetting when necessary
  • Making your vision so clear that you never give up
  • The 8 steps to create and manifest your dreams
  • “Throwing spaghetti at the wall” to see what sticks/works
  • Sarah’s book Hustle Believe Receive
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“I had to decide who I was going to be.”

 

“It can get better; it’s in my control.”

 

“I have always focused on experiences, not things.”

 

“If you don’t have a clear vision of where you want to go and if you’re not excited, at the very first obstacle you’ll say, ‘peace!’”

 

“The hustle is what you do on a daily basis.”

 

“Stop blocking and manifest.”

 

“There will always be a next level in your journey.”

 

“If you stop bitching, your life will change.”
