Show Notes:

Today’s episode is all about fear. There are three main things that you need to know. Firstly, fear is your friend. When we resist fear, we're so focused on what we don't want to happen. We're so focused on building stories that don't actually exist yet that we're not actually putting our energy towards moving forward and taking action and creating a world where no matter what, we are only focusing on winning, and we're only focusing on things going right. So give it an outlet and space to acknowledge it in. Secondly fear has so many beautiful messages for you. It's trying to tell us something, like, hey, this might need a little bit more attention, or, you need a little more support around this. Thirdly, your fear marks the exact spot to where you need to go. Write down the three actions that you're most afraid of doing. One of those is most likely the thing that you need to do in the next week. If you don't get comfortable with fear, you'll never be able to create what you want because every step you take is uncertain. And there is no one there to tell you that you have made a good decision because you're the boss. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

  • Lori and Lindsey’s new event, EventLuv
  • Unicorn brainstorming
  • Money mindset and monetizing your gifts
  • Chris and Lori’s Become Aligned course

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

After having years of successful events, Lindsey Schwartz and I have decided to teach people everything that we know about how to run profitable events, retreats, workshops, and masterminds. In this episode Lindsey and I chat about how she stopped playing small potatoes and started setting audacious goals for herself, and how you can do it too.   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What is unicorn brainstorming?
  • When was your tipping point? When did you start taking action because the pain of constantly disappointing yourself became too much?
  • How did you go from network marketing to creating your own brand?

 

Guest Bio:

Lindsey Schwartz is an entrepreneur, top podcast host, and best-selling author. She is the creator of the popular Powerhouse Women brand, podcast, events, and community. Lindsey has not only been running her own profitable events for the past three years, but she’s been attending, volunteering and helping run events behind the scenes for nearly a decade. She’s never been “too good” to play any role in producing an event and is the first person to support her friends in their endeavors. She prides herself on knowing the ins and outs of how heart-centered events should run, and understanding how to gain the attention of the media and get people excited about whatever she’s involved in.

After being behind the scenes for years helping to produce successful events, Lindsey knew that, despite her fears, it was time to come out from behind the curtain. With her ability, knowledge, charisma and attitude of “everything can be figured out” she launched her annual Powerhouse Women event and it took off. Her Powerhouse Women events have become top events in the business and personal growth world, helping countless women launch the brand or passion project of their dreams. She is a sought-after speaker, traveling around the world teaching and helping other women host their own events so they can create the community and careers they’ve always dreamed of.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Visualizing who you were put on this planet to be
  • How to go from where you are now to where you want to go
  • How growth comes from taking massive risks 

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

 

Today’s episode is for the person who needs a kick in the ass right now. The person who’s thinking, I'm ready. I can't live this way another day. I can't wake up to another Monday where I don't like who I am because I'm not showing up as my highest self. Nobody's coming for you. This is going to be the rest of your life if you don't take massive action. If you're looking at someone that you think is lucky, maybe they’re seeing success because they are willing to not be liked, they're willing to do it scared, they're willing to fail, to be wrong, to get criticized or get nasty messages in their DMs. They're willing to invest, they're willing to make massive risks, to lose money, to feel uncertain every damn day and they’re willing to do anything to create the support that they need. They're willing to keep moving and love themselves, even when other people don't. So if you are struggling, know that it’s because you’re growing and getting stronger. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Chris and Lori’s Become Aligned course
  • How Natalya and Naomi deal with their very busy schedules
  • How going to the gym with her mom is helping Natalya deal with the loss of her father
  • How Natalya and Naomi make time for their families

  • How Natalya and Naomi support each other and their fellow competitors 

 

Resources:



Show Notes:

Today my guests are WWE stars Natalya and Naomi. We chat about how they keep each other motivated even though they’re on the road and busy all the time. We also cover how Natalya is coping with the loss of her father and how they make time for their families. In this conversation I learnt a lot about how Natalya and Naomi push through to reach their goals. For example it took Natalya five years to get accepted for WWE but she kept trying.

 

Question Highlights:

  • You want to stay in shape for the ring. But you’re on the road all the time. How do you mentally prepare for that? 
  • What do you do when it feels like you can't push through mentally? 
  • What is something that you wish more people knew about you?
  • What are your next steps, career wise?
  • When did you realize that helping other competitors and lifting them up actually lifts you up?
  • What are you most excited about right now in your life?
  • What is something for people who feel like they're either afraid or hitting a wall? 

 

Guest Bio:

With a combination of beauty, talent and untamed desire, Natalya is proudly carrying on the legacy of the legendary Hart Family in WWE.

The daughter of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, Natalya was trained in the rough-and-tumble Hart Dungeon. That unforgiving training ground that churned out mat greats like Brian Pillman and Natalya's husband, Tyson Kidd, molded The Queen of Harts into one of WWE's most dangerous submission grapplers. She also learned from her uncle Bret “Hit Man” Hart by driving many of her opponents to tap via a Sharpshooter.

Her presence out of the ring is almost as formidable: Starring on E!’s Total Divas reality series and working as an active supporter of WWE and The Creative Coalition’s Be a STAR Alliance, Make-A-Wish, Susan G. Komen and the WrestleMania Reading Challenge.

Natalya came agonizingly close to capturing championships for several years until she finally broke through at SummerSlam 2017, defeating Naomi for the SmackDown Women’s Championship to earn the gold for the first time since claiming the Divas Title in 2010.

The WWE Universe always assumed it would take a man of tremendous ability to live up to the legendary legacy of the pink and black. As it turned out, it’s doing just fine in this woman’s hands.

As the second-highest cause of whiplash behind car accidents, Naomi first turned heads as a dancer for the NBA's Orlando Magic and hip-hop stars like Flo Rida. These talents would take her around the world, as Naomi performed everywhere from North Korea to Indonesia.

Despite all that success, Naomi's dance steps couldn’t satisfy her competitive spirit, which is how she found herself as a contestant on WWE NXT. Despite being eliminated in the final week of her season, Naomi soon launched into orbit around Planet Funk, as one half of The Funkadactyls. From there, she broke out on her own, determined to take WWE by storm.

The Total Divas star has since had a series of remarkable runs as both fan-favorite and corner-cutting villain, doggedly pursuing the Divas Championship for the better part of a year and cementing her status as a ring general by heading up the attitude-filled Team B.A.D. of Tamina and Sasha Banks during the Divas Evolution. 

Naomi then reinvented herself yet again as part of the SmackDown LIVE brand, making one-and-all feel the glow as she came face-to-face with her destiny by winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship twice, including an epic victory at WrestleMania 33 in a Six-Pack Challenge Match. A year later, she made history once again when she eliminated Bayley to win the first-ever WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34. After the 2019 Superstar Shake-up, Naomi is now adding a glow to the red brand.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Chris and Lori’s mastermind, Fast Foundations
  • Why sometimes we need to end friendships
  • Why everyone in our life is there to teach us something
  • How we must give up the idea that we are always right



Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today I want to chat with you about toxic friendships and breaking up with friends. I know some of you are like, yes, please give me the goods. I need to break up with friends right now. It's absolutely true. Some relationships have an expiration date and when they pass it, the friendship can go south. Not everyone is supposed to be with you for your entire journey. People who we attract in our lives that cause problems from the get-go can also teach us something - how to treat everyone with compassion and set boundaries in the most loving way possible. To move through life with more flow and ease, we must give up the idea that we are always right and in fact assume that everything is our fault and that everything is a lesson. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • How Alexa got into wrestling
  • How Alexa recovered from eating disorders
  • How Alexa creates safe boundaries for herself and deals with online bullying
  • Alexa’s plans for her future

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today my guest on the show is professional wrestler Alexa Bliss. Alexa watched wrestling growing up, then competed as a bodybuilder while she was recovering from eating disorders. Although she got a lucky break to become a wrestler she says really she was training for it her whole life because she’s been in athletics since she was five. In this conversation we talk about online bullying, handling out of control situations and pushing yourself to achieve your goals. What I learnt from interviewing Alexa is that the basic mindset and principles are the same exact across the board, no matter what your dream is. I don't care if you want to start a business. I don't care if you want to be an entrepreneur. I don't care if you want to be a WWE superstar. It is all the same mindset and belief in yourself and connection to other people.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you become a professional wrestler?
  • How did you integrate recovering from eating disorders into your fitness journey?

 

  • How do you keep a safe boundary for yourself mentally when you're in the public eye all the time?

 

  • What keeps you going in those moments where you don't think there's anything left?

 

  • What do you hope teenage girls get from seeing you?

 

Guest Bio:

Alexa has been a driven competitor her entire life, excelling especially in gymnastics and eventually becoming a Division I cheerleader. Alexa even entered the world of competitive bodybuilding, where she became one of the youngest competitors to receive her IFBB Professional status. With such an incredible athletic background, it’s little wonder that Alexa quickly became one of NXT’s most dangerous Superstars. Although she never captured the NXT Women’s Title, she was a constant threat.

 

When she joined SmackDown LIVE, Alexa ascended to the top by becoming a two-time SmackDown Women's Champion. Then she made history at WWE Payback, becoming the first Superstar to win both the SmackDown Women's Title and the Raw Women's Title.
