TheLivelyShowCourtneyCarverHolidaySpecial

Today I’ve cooked up my first LivelyShow Thanksgiving special just for you!

I’ve got a full-length Lively Show designed to help you kick off one of the most meaningful, joyful, and stress-less holiday seasons ever!

I’m talking with the incredible Courtney Carver of Be More With Less about how we can approach this holiday season from an intentional perspective.

But this show covers much more than just changing our approach to gift giving, decor, holiday commitments, and increasing the elements of the holidays that mean the most.

We are talking about the importance of being proactive with our health, handling a difficult diagnosis, and how to make gradual shifts towards a simpler lifestyle that lead to huge transformation.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to reduce the holiday stress, increase holiday joy, put themselves first, and to prevent or manage a difficult health issue.

TheLivelyShowWithBrookeWhite

Today’s show with music artist Brooke White of The Girls with Glasses, American Idol (5th place on Season 7), and Jack and White is a spectacular look at the struggles we can all face when it comes to sharing our creativity, talents…

And handling the self-doubt, rejection, and fear that comes with being vulnerable on a massive scale, or in day-to-day life.

This episode is perfect for anyone who loves an incredible personal journey, struggles to fully embrace their talents, or fears the rejection or criticism of others. 

 

TLSFullyAppreciateAwesomeThings

Today I’m answering my very first Intention Question on The Lively Show!

I’m so excited because I think this is an important question we can all struggle with from time to time, and aligns perfectly with gratitude and Thanksgiving next week:

How can we fully appreciate all of the awesome things in our lives?

As you may have noticed, the monthly wallpapers have been absent on the site in the past few months…

But I’m happy to report that they are back!

I’ve teamed up with the (very) talented Ilana, of Sugar & Type, to create new desktop wallpapers filled with inspiring quotes from The Lively Show archives.

A little #FlashbackFriday (#FBF), if you will.

To start, we picked a wise message from Rachel MacDonald in Lively Show episode #23: Increasing Our Joy with Rachel MacDonald.

There are more awesome quotes coming out of this collaboration with Sugar & Type (and a few other surprises as well), in the weeks to come.

 

Stay tuned!

 

TheLivelyShowWithAliEdwards

Happy Thursday to you!

Today on The Lively Show, I’m talking with Ali Edwards of AliEdwards.com. Ali is a leader in the scrapbooking world, and has reframed what it means to scrapbook, through the lens of telling your life story intentionally.

But our conversation extends far beyond scrapbooking – we cover a gamut of topics centered around what it means to live with the unexpected changes and challenges that come our way throughout our lives.

From Autism to divorce, Ali shares about the peace that comes with “living in the grey” and embracing the fact that life may have a different (even better) plan for us than what we’ve imagined.

This episode is perfect for anyone who struggles (or knows someone who struggles) with all-or-nothing thinking, or who is dealing with an unexpected change in their lives.

 

MiniEditionIntentionQuestions

Today I’m sharing an exciting new experiment I’m trying with the Mini Edition of the Lively Show on Tuesdays: Intention Questions!

I’m looking to answer any questions you have for me that you think I could help with, or pertain to the four major life areas I focus on in my Values-based intention work: possessions, personal habits, relationships, and career.

To find out how to ask a question and be on the show, listen to today’s episode.

TheLivelyShowJenGotch

Today we’re having a fun chat with Jen Gotch, co-founder of the popular personality-filled accessory line, Ban.do!

We’re talking about her extensive list of careers in traditional and non-traditional fields: from pre-law to being an extra on her favorite TV shows. — And how she eventually stumbled into the start of her very successful accessory line, Ban.do.

We’re also talking about her decision to sell her company, as well as her passion for the Art of Relaxation and keeping her creative muscles strong.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn more about Jen, strengthen their creative muscles, relax more, or hear from someone who has sold a business and become a creative director. 

TLSTheRoleofLoveInOurInboxes

Today I’m sharing about the role of love in our inbox.

This is something I’ve been focusing on in my own life over the past 4-6 weeks, and it’s brought more peace, presence, and joy to the world of email answering – and applies far beyond the inbox as well.

This shift takes virtually no extra time, but changes the whole process of email answering.
