Today on The Lively Show, I’m doing an impromptu Mini Edition sharing those two big announcements I’ve been hinting at recently:

  1. We’ve bought our first house and are moving from Austin, TX to Ann Arbor, MI!
  2. I’m writing my first book!

In the episode, I’m sharing more about both of these exciting developments: why we’re moving away from our beloved Austin, and what the new book will be about!

This episode is perfect for anyone interested in why the heck we’re moving to Michigan, and what I’ve been struggling with – until recently – that I’m going to devote my first book to… 



Today’s Lively Show is the second half of last week’s popular topic: 27 Ways to Make Money Online. This week we are speaking with Jessie Artigue of

Jessie has worn several hats before and during her online career including speaker, brand consultant, event host, sponsored blogger, and more. We’ll be discussing the ways she transitioned between each avenue and what she’s learned along the way.

Plus, we’ve made a free printable (below) that outlines the 27 money making methods so you can follow along and take notes!

This two-part episode is perfect for anyone looking to get advice on making money online, or anyone simply curious about how two web-based business owners optimize their income streams. 


(This two-part series is based on a session that Jessie and Hilary presented at Alt Summit based on personal experience.

Feel free to browse the business and blogging categories on The Lively Show page for more insights from entrepreneurs on other parts of the web with different income streams.)



After seeing friends and online business owners, Hilary Rushford (Dean Street Society) and Jessie Artigue (Style & Pepper) rock out a packed session at Alt Summit on 27 Ways to Make Money Online, I knew I needed to bring their great content to you through The Lively Show!

To start, we’ll be discussing all of the ways that Hilary has made money online during her web-based career. This lady is crushing it with her style and business offerings. In the show, she’s dishing on the ways she’s done things in the past, doling out advice based on what she’s learned, and giving us a peek into what she’s focusing on right now.

Next week, Jessie will come on the show and share her income streams over the years and her advice for people just starting out, as well as more seasoned business owners.

This (two-part) episode is perfect for anyone looking to get advice on making money online, or anyone simply curious about how two web-based business owners optimize their income streams. 



Today kicks off our first episode of our Summer Series! Each Lively Show episode during June, July, and August will relate to that month’s particular theme.

In June we’re discussing money: what to do with the money you have, how to make money online (if you want to, or are interested in learning how others do), and what to do with debt.

Today’s guest is Nicole Lapin, a financial journalist and author of Rich Bitch. Besides being an advocate for women’s financial success, she was also the youngest anchor ever on both CNN and CNBC.

In the show, we discuss the money mindsets Nicole recommends and we explore what she learned from attaining her lifelong career goals at such an early age.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to hear an inspiring story about: working towards a goal, the challenges that came with being the youngest person in a public career, and the lessons Nicole learned from tackling the topic of money both personally and professionally. 



Today’s Lively Show guest is Myleik Teele, someone I adore following – especially on Instagram – for her straight-shooting take on life and career.

Myleik Teele is the founder of, a popular subscription box service specializing in African American hair products, and the voice behind and the My Taught You podcast.

Myleik shares what she’s learned from being radically authentic, how she deals with fear, and what she’s learned throughout her journey in life, relationships, and business.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to hear an honest, inspiring journey or lean into their own authenticity in a greater way.



Today on The Lively Show I’m talking with Mimi Ikonn, a co-founder of Luxy Hair and YouTube sensation.

I was introduced to Mimi through her husband’s co-author of The Five Minute Journal, UJ Ramdas (who was on the show last December).

Since my introduction to Mimi, I’ve become a huge fan of her helpful style videos and positive message.

In the show, we’ll be diving into the incredible journey filled with ups, downs, and hard work that has led Mimi to the inspiring, world-traveling life she now leads.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to hear an inspiring story of someone with humble beginnings who wasn’t afraid to go after what she wanted throughout her life – and the unexpected lessons she learned going from working two full-time jobs to help support her family, to having all the time, freedom, and money she wanted. 



Today on the Lively Show, I’m speaking with Jessica Turner of the blog, The Mom Creative, and author of The Fringe Hours.

As a busy wife, mom (of three little ones), and blogger with a full-time job, Jessica is often asked how she makes time for self care and several passions amidst her busy schedule. The Fringe Hours became an answer to this question from Jessica’s experience as well as the lives of 2,000 other women across the country.

In the show, we’ll discuss what the fringe hours are, how we can find them in our own schedules, and how to overcome a few core limiting beliefs that can prevent us from prioritizing self-care.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is feeling burned out, empty from a lack of self-care, or frustrated by the concept of finding balance in their lives. 


Today on The Lively Show I’m talking with another host of a podcast you might know… Jonathan Fields!

Jonathan is the force behind the YouTube channel and podcast, Good Life Project. He’s interviewed hundreds of thought leaders (like Seth Godin), creatives (like Marie Forleo and Milton Glaser), and mission-minded people (like Brené Brown).

In today’s show, we are looking at various aspects of his own life, his findings on intuition and uncertainty, and he shares his (brilliant!) “three basket theory” that has changed the way I approach my life and work.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to get a huge dose of inspiration, thoughtful insights on uncertainty, and a new way to look at getting the most out of every aspect of your life.



Today on the Lively Show we’re talking with Crystal Palecek, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the popular online interior design and lifestyle magazine, Rue Magazine.

Crystal recently gave birth to her first child, Benjamin Andrew Palecek, on April 14th. Just a few weeks before his birth, Crystal shared openly with me about the challenges she’s had during her pregnancy, and what she’s learned about the intersection of pregnancy and perfectionism.

Plus, I help Crystal set some Values-based intentions to help her peacefully navigate this season of her life as well.

This show is perfect for anyone who wants to hear about the intersection of perfectionism, pregnancy, and setting Values-based intentions to guide peaceful choices amidst uncertainty.



In today’s Lively Show we are speaking with our first repeat guest from Season 1, Caroline Rector, the writer behind the popular fashion blog, Un-Fancy.

Caroline has blogged her journey to live with a capsule wardrobe and inspired thousands of readers to reconsider what it means to have a wardrobe they love.

Today on her blog, Caroline shared her decision to take a six month break from her blog as she moves to Seattle. In today’s episode she’s sharing her decision to do so, how she has approached her blog compared to her previous photography business, and what she has learned about “traditional” success over the past year.

This show is perfect for anyone who has struggled with traditional approaches to success, or wants to hear an inspiring story about someone who is choosing to step away from a “really good thing” when prompted by her intuition.   


AlexandraFranzenPhoto   Today’s episode is a lively conversation with author, wordsmith, and thought leader, Alexandra Franzen.

Alexandra’s website is a go-to resource for me when it comes to finding how to say what isn’t always easy to say. She’s got a wealth of information and soul-filled guidance to share.

In today’s show we are covering a wide variety of topics including: getting the most out of our day, scheduling our calendars with intention, amazing books that have changed our lives, and saying no to people in a graceful and respectful way.

This show is perfect for anyone looking to listen to a thought-provoking conversation around ways we can live our lives deliberately and peacefully.
