TLS #73: Possibility and the Flip Side of Uncertainty with Jonathan Fields (Good Life Project)

TheLivelyShowwithJonathanFields

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.

TLS #69: Living With Painful Sex with Jesse Coulter

TheLivelyShowWithJesseCoulter

* This episode includes “adult content” and may not be appropriate for young audiences. *

Today’s episode of The Lively Show is touching on a topic we haven’t covered yet: sex.

Painful sex, to be specific.

Jesse Coulter is a wife, mother, blogger (JesseCoulter.net), full-time marketing coordinator, and co-founder of the Austin-based custom furniture company, Builtwell.

In today’s show, Jesse is opening up about her struggle with painful sex throughout much of her adult life.

Jesse isn’t sharing as an “expert” or someone who “has it all figured out.” She’s simply sharing her heart and still unfolding story with us – so that those who may also be struggling with a similar journey may feel a little less alone.

I deeply hope that this show reaches those who may benefit from Jesse’s bravery. This topic is commonly kept secret, increasing the sense of isolation for those struggling with similar issues.

This episode is for anyone who struggles with painful sex, or for anyone who would like to learn more about what challenges this issue can present for those who face it.

TLS 65: Stopping the Glorification of Busy with Katie Richardson (puj.com)

TheLivelyShowWithKaiteRichardson This Lively Show is thanks to a tag @shanderson22 left for me on Katie Richardson’s Instagram photo that declared, “stop the glorification of busy.”

I’m talking with the incredible Katie Richardson, a wife, mother of four littles, and the founder of the practical and stylish children’s line, Puj. This episode is more of a conversation than a traditional interview. Katie and I both explore the challenges, triumphs, and limiting beliefs we face when it comes to detaching ourselves from busy-ness.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is over-scheduled, overwhelmed, or wants to drop the word “busy” from their vocabulary.
