“Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life's search for love and wisdom.” - Rumi

February 27 marks 22 years since my younger sister Julie left her body. Wild to think about that much time passing!

To honor her + honor this wild emotion called GRIEF, today’s episode focuses on just that.

I share some personal stories from my journey, as well as some gorgeous insights from women in the Get Gutsy Galaxy about their experience with grief and how they MOVED through the grief to LIVE AGAIN.

Women’s voices represented on this episode are: Sheila Burnham Hill, Ashley Erin, Claire Elizabeth, Hayley Anne Forster, Kimberly DeRosa, Hilde Meffert, Peggy Everson, Misty Burris Catheline, Elaine Wellman, Jessica Marie Saenz, Darlena Harris, Cybele Loening, Diana Michelle Del Guidice, Melanie Garner.

“Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life.” - Anne Roiphe

As a human on this journey, you aren’t immune to loss. And with loss, comes grief. You don’t need to be afraid of grief. What opens up for you in the process will blow you away. Trust me on this.

“Grief is a process, not a state.” - Anne Grant

Enjoy!

opt out = to choose not to participate in something

Do you go along with everything? Suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out)? Ignore your own truth to avoid rocking the boat?

It’s time you take a stand and OPT OUT of that line of thinking, being and having.

In this episode of Get Gutsy, I share a personal story of how I OPTED OUT of something I loved to bring more SPACIOUSNESS in my life. I also share how I too am tempted by FOMO and how I recently sidestepped joining something that simply wasn’t for me.

Enjoy!

Do you feel like what you have is never enough? Have you yet to uncover what you truly desire deep down inside?

Prepare to be inspired! Alexis Neely joins us on this episode of Get Gutsy for one of our most energetic, powerful, and insightful interviews to date. Alexis takes us on her journey from working at a law firm, to becoming a multimillion-dollar entrepreneur. During this interview you’ll learn how to listen to that voice within and discover who you truly are, so you can create the reality you really want.

About Our Guest

Alexis Neely (artist name: Ali Shanti) is a bridge between the generations, a catalyst for new ways of thinking, a paradigm-shifter, lawyer, mom, author and permission giver who is bringing forward radically new and much needed perspectives on how we make decisions about money, time, work, relationships, parenting and business.

She graduated first in her class from Georgetown University Law Center (primarily because they don't count any rankings at Georgetown other than #1 and in her earlier years she was very driven by the need to prove herself) and went on to work as an associate at Munger, Tolles & Olson, one of the best law firms in the country. After three years there, with two children under the age of 4 and a stay at home husband, she left the security of the big law firm and started her own law practice.

Within just three years, Alexis had built that law practice into a million dollar a year revenue generating law business by inventing a new law business model, which she now teaches to lawyers worldwide.

In addition, Alexis has created a system that guides people to a new relationship with time, money and how they get paid so we can stop putting off our lives until we have financial freedom and step into financial liberation and personal sovereignty now.

As a successful serial entrepreneur, Alexis has built four million dollar plus companies and a couple of 6-figure companies as well. Today, she supports others to do the same.

Finally, Alexis is on a personal mission to utilize her formal training and deep experience as an estate planning lawyer, her life and heart path as a Mother, and her soul path as a High Priestess to heal the inter-generational divide that has resulted from poor communication and understanding of money in families.

Do you ever feel that you’re all alone in your business? Do you have the sacred support system you need to create the life that you want?

In this episode of Get Gutsy, Sarah Jenks, founder of Live More Weigh Less™, helps you realize that you are NOT alone in your quest. Sarah talks about motherhood, finding work-life balance, creating support systems, and the importance of loving your body. You’ll also learn to overcome the things that are holding you back, so you can rise to the occasion and take charge of your world.

You’re going to get SO much from the episode. I’ve been admiring Sarah’s work for many years and I’m pumped to be able to share her message with you today. Dive in!

About Our Guest

As a full figured woman who struggled with her weight for years, Sarah Jenks finally found the key that all diets were missing. After bouncing between fad diets and struggling with her body image, Sarah realized she had been “waiting on the weight” – waiting to be thin before she: got the great job, the great wardrobe or the great relationship.

When Sarah stopped waiting on the weight, she finally did all the things that she had put on hold for years: going for her ideal job, flirting with her dream guy, going out dancing and living a fully engaged life. In her words, the late night “pity snacking” ceased with all the joy and activity this new lifestyle brought, and she naturally moved to her ideal body.

Sarah’s success in creating a happy lifestyle, which also resulted in a dramatic weight loss, is what led her to create Live More Weigh Less™, now the most popular non-diet weight loss program on the internet. It’s not about cutting out crème brulee, it’s about embracing the life you want, right now. Living a full, meaningful life is a great adventure; when you have adventure in your life, diving into a pint of ice cream seems less exciting.

In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • How to create a support system for entrepreneurship
  • Making changes to afford the things you want
  • Why you have the opportunity to create your own destiny
  • Everything is doable, it’s just a matter of strategy and time
  • What Sarah did when she realized that working for someone else wasn’t her jam
  • Sarah’s journey to live more, weigh less, and feel amazing about her body
  • The importance of taking on side jobs to keep you afloat
  • If you work hard enough and you believe it will work, you can make it happen
  • The ups and downs to creating online programs
  • How to rise to the occasion as an entrepreneurial leader
  • Why you are not alone
  • Finding time to pray more frequently
  • Building a relationship between your business and life
  • How to create balance between motherhood and work
  • How to find beauty and ease even when life is hard
  • Why Sarah stopped claiming weight loss as her message
  • How to remove the shackles that are holding you back
  • How to simplify your business and find personal growth and fulfillment

Enjoy!

“If you don't think your anxiety, depression, sadness and stress impact your physical health, think again. All of these emotions trigger chemical reactions in your body, which can lead to inflammation and a weakened immune system. Learn how to cope, sweet friend. There will always be dark days.” - Kris Carr

Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the country, with 1 in 7 Americans suffering from some form of anxiety, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.

What do you get ANXIOUS about?

How does ANXIETY show up in your body?

How do you MOVE THROUGH it?

These are the questions we’re exploring on this episode of Get Gutsy. You’ll hear some of the responses I received from members of our amazing tribe the Get Gutsy Galaxy when I asked them to tell me about their experience with anxiety.

“Nothing in the affairs of men is worthy of great anxiety.” - Plato

It’s by shining a light on what we’re afraid of that those fears become less intense in our minds. And it becomes a lot easier to walk in faith.

“Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.” - Charles Spurgeon

Enjoy!
