TLS #247: The Power & Clarity of Leaving a Career to Find Alignment with Kristyn Judkins

Today’s Lively Show is one of my very favorites from Season 4 of TLS!

Today I’m speaking with FWIO and LWIO member and friend, Kristyn Judkins, about her career journey as a lawyer and beyond. Her journey involves leaving her law career for integrative nutrition — and a powerful new shift away from wholistic coaching… into a whole new position and a new level of awareness and understanding when it comes to flow, alignment, and career.

This episode is the perfect blend of a conversation that we easily could have had in Seasons 1-3, and at the same time, we layer in Season 4 awareness and consciousness to what is really going on.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is not feeling fully fulfilled by their career and looking to hear a story of someone who has traveled this path and found the ultimate freedom and alignment in work.

TLS #208: What I learned from a Google workshop about mindfulness + neurology

Today on the show, I’m sharing the takeaways I got from a Google created mindfulness workshop called Search Inside Yourself.

During the two day workshop in Sydney, they shared on the subjects of neurology, consciousness, and mindfulness from a personal and career perspective.

One of the things I loved about this program was the tips and ways they suggested bringing mindfulness into the corporate workplace… so if you are interested in mindfulness at work, you’ll want to tune in.

This episode is perfect for anyone interested in learning about how Google approaches mindfulness and neurology, or for anyone interested how to bringing mindfulness into a corporate environment.

TLS #186: Things I’m afraid to tell you

Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit of a disconnect with you. And the show.

I want to change that.

So today I’m talking about things happening in my life which I have not been sharing (fully) on the show. I hope by sharing these truths – which are really just ego fears – we can be on the same page heading into 2017. I want to feel comfortable fully being who I have become as a result of all that I’ve experienced this year and share these new insights… with you.

Just by creating this podcast and putting this out there, the shadows these fears have been casting on my connection to you have already faded. The light is here once again.

It feels good to be back.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is curious about the things I’ve been afraid to share on the show in recent months.

Today is a BIG day! Not only do we have a wonderful new Lively Show episode for you, I’m also on my way to go see the new elementary school that is built in Ghana thanks to you — the Lively Community!

687 days ago, I committed to donating 10% of Jess Lively Creative Inc. revenue to Pencils of Promise to build elementary schools in Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos. The first school has been fully funded and the build is at or near completion – so I’m heading over to check it out firsthand(!) with the Pencils of Promise team.

In honor of this amazing milestone, Adam Braun, the founder of Pencils of Promise, is on the show today sharing about how he began this ‘for purpose’ organization with just $25 — and has since built 363 schools worldwide.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about building a ‘for purpose’ business, or for anyone that wants to uplift others in the world – yet may feel like they don’t have enough resources right now to do so.
