IG Elaine Quote 1.jpg

Do you struggle with taking pride in yourself?  Do you feel like you should or shouldn’t have pride?  In this episode we dive into the importance of how we carry ourselves and how we have pride in the way we look and feel.  But even on a deeper scale than that, how do we get to that point? It takes being introspective and really discovering our deep thoughts and feelings on different issues.

In this episode I talk with Elaine LaLanne, the “mother of fitness”, at 92 years young she is brimming with strength and vitality. She talks about how we need to not only take pride in ourselves, but visualize what we want, and watch the words that come out of our mouth. She discusses why this is so important.  We dive into her and her husbands beginning and how they together helped pioneer the fitness world.

Kate Bee- How To Build A Life You Don't Need To Numb Out From

FB Kate Quote 1.jpg

Drinking alcohol is portrayed as tons of fun, socially acceptable, and the norm.  But should it be the norm? Do you struggle with alcohol? Maybe not on a deep level to where it affects your day to day activities, but enough for you to notice some differences in your performance at work and everyday life?  Does giving up alcohol mean no more fun in life?

Listen to the podcast HERE

In this episode I talk with Kate Bee who knew she needed a break from the alcohol.  Turning to Alcoholics Anonymous seemed to be her only choice, but she found that she wasn’t in the category of it controlling her life, and found that there were no other groups or organizations dealing with the topic.  This inspired Kae B to start her own mission to help people who are in the in between stages of drinking recreationally and an alcoholic. So she started the Sober School.

Questions I asked:

  • How did you come to start the sober school?

Do you ever find yourself second guessing yourself? You have some ideas or dreams, but then reality hits, and you ask the question, “Who am I to do this?”  Doubts creep in along with fears of the unknown. We tend to live in that constant state of fears and because of it remain exactly where we are. But what we were to break out of that fear?  What if we were to make steps today that would lead us to a brighter and better future version of ourselves?

Listen to the podcast HERE

In this episode I talk about my own struggle about opening a gym and the fears and doubts that I had as I second guessed myself.  I realize that we all have big plans and dreams, so how do we turn those into a reality rather than just sitting on them? How do we take that first step and then another in order to further our dreams and do the desires that are in us to do.  That’s what we are talking about today.

Ep 106 Tony Whatley "Side Hustle Millionaire" - Confidence Is A Decision"

IG Tony Quote (2).jpg

Have you had an idea or passion for a business but are not sure what steps you need to get there?  Do you find that your desire to build your business is leaving you falling short? While ideas can be easy to come by, sometimes transforming that idea into an actual business can be daunting.  In addition we can often feel that we have to know everything before we start, but that just keeps us stuck.

 

Listen to the podcast HERE

 

In this episode I talk with Tony Whatley and we discuss how to turn your passions and desires for business into an actual goal that you can accomplish.  It’s easy to get caught up in the emotion and excitement for a business, but that won’t carry you through to completion. From excuses we make, to feeling that we are not ready we dive into all the hard subjects we have to face when determining to start a business.  We even tackle the infamous fear of failure. This episode is jam packed with how to overcome your fears.

 

Questions I asked:

  • What was your biggest failure?

  • How do you handle negative family members or friends?

  • How do people who are miserable in a career branch out into a side hustle?

 

Topics Discussed:

  • The importance of goals.

  • How excuses and our actions keep us from our goals.

  • How perfectionism keep us stuck.

  • Dealing with the fear of failure.

 

Quotes from the show:

  • “You need to prioritize what you need to do.” @LindaMitchell

  • “The longer you stay down the longer you are down.” @LindaMitchell

  • “You find your greatest success by getting up.” @LindaMitchell

  • “You have to have goals.” @TonyWhatley

  • “Your passion will not get you to your goal.” @TonyWhatley

  • “There’s always convenient excuses.” @TonyWhatley

  • “The actions you are taking today are your priorities.” @TonyWhatley

  • “You can’t just say ‘I don’t know’.” @TonyWhatley

  • “Confidence is a decision.” @TonyWhatley

FB Linda solo Quote 1.jpg

Are you on a journey or on a mission? There is nothing wrong with being on either one. But it’s good to be clear on which path you are on. If you are on a journey, you are easily moved by distractions. Life is unpredictable so it’s  difficult to keep promises to yourself when time gets away from you. However when you are on a mission you have a deep why….and nothing can stop you.

Ep 103 Brooke Sprowl LA Therapy - The Fights Are Not About The Fights

Brooke Quote (3).jpg

What better person to take relationship advice from than a therapist! This week our special guest is Brooke Sprowl the founder of My LA Therapy.  Her specialties include depression, trauma, PTSD, as well as marriage and relationship issues among others. Brooke’s articles have been featured in Social Work Today, Martha Stewart Weddings and many more.

Brooke believes in circular causality which in essence is the idea that your behavior is both the cause of another’s behavior as well as caused by another’s behavior.  She shares with us the importance of turning our viewpoint inward to see what areas in our own lives may need adjusting in a relationship rather that projecting all the negativity outward. This episode is perfect for those wanting to strengthen their relationships and be more present with those they love.

Brooke Quote (2).jpg

Questions I Asked:

  • Why do people have power struggles in relationships?

  • How is Narcissism, when mistaken as strength, ruining relationships?

  • How does a relationship work with the idea that I don’t need anyone else’s permission?

Topics Discussed:

  • Why men are often unavailable.

  • The importance of how you are communicating.

  • How to develop and share responsibility.

Brooke Quote (1).jpg

Quotes from the show:

Ep 102 Kirstie Ennis - USMC Gunner Amputee and Paralympic Snowboarder - Keep Going After The Big Mountains

IG Kirstie Quote (1).jpg

In the midst of tragedy, it is difficult to understand the good that can come of it. We often hear stories of those who have endured unthinkable trials and have not only lived through them but found their purpose within them. How can we too learn from those who have risen above their circumstances when we are faced with our own adversity?

Listen to the podcast HERE

IG Kirstie Quote (3).jpg


This week we are speaking with former marine gunner, Kirstie Ennis, who suffered intensive injuries including a leg amputation after her helicopter crashed. In this episode, we discuss how she not only overcame her obstacles but went on to create a non-profit organization, climb mountains, and become an adventure athlete. Kirstie truly believes in the philosophy that we have to be uncomfortable to grow and look for situations to push ourselves.  She encourages us to look at how far we’ve come rather than where we still have to go.

Questions I Asked:

  • Did you feel stripped of your identity?

  • What types of workouts do you perform to prepare for the mountains?

  • Did setting goals pull you through rehab?

IG Kirstie Quote (2).jpg


Topics Discussed:

  • Coming back from a devastating tragedy.

  • Continuing when people tell you that you shouldn’t.

  • The importance of milestones and the journey.
