AmandaLeeSouthernSoul

"More than just a podcast!  “Earn Your Happy” is amazing . Not only is it incredible alone - making me laugh, cry and feel like I’m connected to a supportive community, but is a gateway to new podcasts, inspirational people to follow on instagram along with adding to my ever growing book collection! I binge at work and get those weird looks when I bust out laughing at Lori and Evans (whatever totally worth it) and constantly take notes from the amazing guests on the show. This has truly been such a blessing that I stumbled upon casually looking through podcasts one day.

So grateful for this podcast to bring me back down from the stories I tell myself that are not true, get back into my higher self mindset and be my authentic self with no apologies!"

Review of the Week:

MsLids

Another aha moment thanks to Lori and Evans! Whenever I need some inspiration, laughter or an aha moment, I tune into Earn Your Happy, and usually there is always something in an episode that is exactly what I need to hear. I was listening to Evans and Lori talk about pivots and Lori was sharing the story about baby sea turtles and it was the aha, calming advice I needed. You see I’m a mom to a 14 year old middle schooler that has really struggled this year and my momma bear has wanted to come in and “fix” it. Hearing that the turtles need to struggle on land so they can survive in the sea was a great analogy for parenting middle school girls. This struggle is part of her learning how to figure things out and my job is to provide her with the tools to help but not do it for her. Thanks as always for the motivation!!

 

Question 1:

Morgan

I took a job recently that feels like the right thing right now, but as soon as a better opportunity comes up I want to take it. How do I do that without feeling guilty about leaving my current job?

Tag us on Instagram and tell us what you’re going to start, stop, face and embrace in 2020. 

Question Highlights:

Guest Bio:

After an 11-year career as an executive and partner in the banking industry, Chris experienced plenty of success, however he severely lacked fulfillment – and was completely burned out. Recognizing that a change needed to be made, he retired from banking in 2011 and partnered with his wife, Lori, and her brand, LoriHarder.com, along with their Isagenix network marketing business. Chris now handles most of the business affairs and business coaching for their two multimillion dollar brands, and has found exactly the fulfillment and happiness he was seeking in a career.

Chris is the host of the new hit podcast, “For the Love of Money”, aimed at helping people bust through their money mindset blocks to become unapologetic about their pursuit of wealth. It is through interviewing business moguls and celebrities and exposing their exciting stories of contribution and philanthropy that he helps prove that money is a tool for good in a world with many needs.

Show Notes:

It’s almost time for the new year, and we get to choose how we feel about it. There is so much beautiful energy around 2020 of manifesting what you want and getting rid of what you don't want.

And the more and more clear that I've gotten about letting go of things, the more I’ve been able to focus on what matters. I want you to ask some simple questions:

-What needs to go?

My Cup of Energy & Life in the Mornings! Good morning Lori and Evans (btw, love your name!)! Just wanted to start off by saying that you two are my pick-me-up for the rest of the day on Tuesdays and Thursdays as I am driving to class - especially in Phoenix traffic! I feel as though I am sitting right there with you, sipping on my iced matcha latte, laughing at the hilarious tangents and ideas that are thought of; you guys need someone to make a list of all your brilliant ideas, haha! Anyway, I love you both so much and appreciate your wisdom for this soon-to-be college grad! Everything is so relatable and so true. Keep on being your authentic selves and I will continue to do the same. Much Love, Chandler Derby

Perspective is a beautiful thing that can turn something negative into something that is actually life changing and positive.

For example maybe you’re going to the gym and feel like you hate it and you’re not seeing results. Thank yourself for showing up and doing something hard because you are building that muscle of showing up even when you don’t feel like it’s worth it.

Review of the Week:

KarlBird18 ★★★★★ "

The Earn Your Happy podcast is the fuel for my fire and never fails to bring a spark of joy into my life (a big spark!). Every Wednesday morning, Lori and Evans join me for my morning workout, motivating me to keep working on my dreams in their fun and silly ways. On more than one occasion, people stop to ask me why I’m smiling and giggling so much during my workout and I love to recommend the podcast to them. My friends and I have inside jokes inspired by Lori and Evan’s witty conversations (Jugernut 😂) and I feel like we’re all one big tribe cheering on each other’s dreams and celebrating our authenticity. Whenever I’m feeling anxious or down on myself, I’ll re-visit Lori’s quickies for an instant dose of motivation or the Questionably Awesome episodes to remind me that life is meant to be enjoyed! I have it on my vision board to one day meet Lori and Evans and to attend the Bliss Project! Thank you both for shining and sharing your irreplaceable awesomeness!

Show Notes:

In 2015 Annie Spano was lost and depressed because she was being bullied at her corporate job. Then she started blogging and connected with other women bloggers. Having that community made her feel like herself again. She decided to leave her job and create a membership-based blogger tribe for women, Style Collective.  

 

Question Highlights:

 

-How did you build a dream when you and your husband were both unemployed?

-How do you deal when people say you’re selfish for prioritizing your needs?

Guest Bio:

Annie Spano is a former math teacher and corporate marketer with a BS in mathematics education and an MBA. She is the Founder of Style Collective, an online supportive community with influencer education that empowers women to find their purpose, be inclusive and achieve success. 

Style Collective was created in reaction to an experience no other woman should ever have. In late 2015, Annie left her job in corporate marketing after being bullied and harassed by another woman in the workplace. The experience left her feeling defeated and emotionally drained. She wished there was a way for women to work together and help each other achieve success. Annie has since made it her mission to empower other women, improve their happiness, and help them achieve their goals through sisterhood and support of a shared passion. Style Collective is the realization of that mission.

Show Notes:

I just got back from an amazing trip to NYC. That city, I swear to you, is like the most amazing perspective shifter. It's so incredible to me how this city of millions and millions of people just thrives in the chaos. I think it’s a perfect example of how you can choose to focus on either the negative or the positive. Coming back from my trip I got a head cold so I’m not feeling great. When I’m feeling under the weather is when I start doubting myself. And I realized that at this time of building a new company, I'm going to have to take even better care of myself. So if you want to be successful, pay attention to who you're around, what you're listening to, what you're doing and what you're eating. Just remember that your foundation and what you're capable of doing will really come from how much you take care of yourself and how much you focus on trying to build willpower.

  • Lindsey Schwartz and Lori’s workshop for aspiring speakers and leaders
  • Why indecision is a decision to suffer
  • The triangle of analyzing, exhausting and executing

Show Notes:

In this episode I’m talking about moving through indecision. There's a lot of things that I know in my business that I need to get better at such as implementing systems and a good onboarding process. And instead of doing those things, I do the things that are easier but won’t move the needle. Then I feel like I'm choosing suffering by putting something off that I know needs to happen. It’s so important to make a decision and execute because that’s the only way you’re going to get feedback. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

"There is no question, just awesome! Lori and Evans travel with me to and from work often. So much that I feel like we get each other. I love the variety of episodes and interviews because it keeps things real and shows the dimensions of a human being vs just one side. My favorite is questionably awesome, to which there is no question about it, it just IS awesome! Thank you Lori and thank you Evans for being authentic, and courageous and goofy and giving us a spectrum of being that is so relatable and inspiring. I will continue to laugh and answer ‘heck yeah!’ to your words of wisdom on my commute to and from work and joy give a poop if the car next to me thinks I’m talking and laughing to myself. Much love.

Aliciasep

Holy crap I’ve never felt closer to y’all! I love the show! Been listening for over a year and finally getting around to leaving a review. Just listened to a Questionably Awesome about leveling up where you talked about going home - specifically how you feel like you have to rush to get home and sit with family, and then they talk about their new shelf! I thought it was just me and it’s cool to hear that you all experience that. Also, why is that even a thing!? Anyway, love your podcast and random tangents. Makes me feel like I’m just listening to people I want to be friends with. Btw, can we be friends?! -Alicia

Whether you are being bullied online, whether you have a friend who is questioning who you are as you grow, or whether you are completely doubting yourself and not feeling smart enough, these are all opportunities to shine. I recently had an experience that I might share more about later. In the past, I would have gone to a very dark place and it would have taken me down for a really long time. This time I was able to bounce right back knowing that it is not our place to feel bad. We are meant to stay in joy because that's where we get outside of our heads and our small worlds. We expand, we grow and we give our talents, our efforts and our money to people.

  • The difference between pain and suffering
  • Trusting the process of life

  • Ashley’s book, Born To Shine

 

Resources:

 

 

 

Show Notes:

Six years ago Ashley LeMieux and her husband got a phone call asking them to become parents of a six-year-old and a four-year-old. They weren’t looking to adopt or foster at the time, but they said yes, and their life became all about their new family. During the final stages of the adoption process they experienced an unexpected contested adoption, which meant that they spent over a year and a half in court fighting to keep their family together. In the end the kids were taken from them with 12 hours notice and Ashley and her husband were not even allowed to tell the kids they weren’t coming home. Ashley says the past two years have been filled with her trying to figure out how to find a life again after it was all taken away. She felt buried by pain for so long she couldn’t work out how to move forward, but her journey through that has ignited everything she’s doing now. To begin she started a morning routine that added purpose back into her day. She wanted to write a book about her experiences and, after 30 different publishers said no, she figured out that no-one else’s opinion mattered and did it anyway. Her book, Born To Shine, shares stories, lessons, and practical tools to help women shine despite the darkness, to press forward one day at a time even when there is no end in sight, and to turn their most painful moments into their greatest teachers and signposts to true, deep, unassailable joy.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How do you find closure when you couldn’t say goodbye to your kids?
  • Was writing your book therapeutic?
  • What should people do when they can’t see a way out of suffering?
  • How can we believe in the significance of our story? 
  • How do we bring divine ideas to life and have faith in them even when they've lost their excitement?

 

Guest Bio:

Ashley LeMieux is an author, sought-after public speaker, and wildly successful lifestyle influencer. She's the founder of the online community, The Shine Project, where she creates resources and tools that have ignited a path of clarity and fulfillment for hundreds of thousands of women around the world. Through her fashion and lifestyle brand, Shop Ashley LeMieux, she empowers "Women Who Do" to show up confidently and courageously to their lives.

You can’t play small anymore, you can’t live for other people and you can’t keep waiting for someone else to save you. That thing that you think just stopping you is your power. For me it was my anxiety, even though it was debilitating, and I told myself I couldn't do what I wanted because of it. Our superpower is to really share where we're at, and to share our truth and share that we're nervous and to remember that we're all in this human experience together. You can’t say the wrong thing to the right people, so get out there, find your audience, and live the life you want!

  • Being grateful for challenging people and the resistance in your life

  • Tapping into the energy of your purpose
  • Creating a life you cannot hide from

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today I’m talking about the side effects of following your calling. But first I want to talk about the side effects of not following your calling. If you’re not taking actions that support your highest self, you get resentful toward yourself, the people that you love of other people and people who are inspiring to you. You feel anger, anxiety, isolation, comparison, and depression. The most important thing you can do is to really take note of how you're holding yourself back and learn to move forward. But moving forward isn’t pain-free either. You’ll feel discomfort and massive fear. You’ll make new friends and mentors but they won’t let you hide. You’ll lose people along the way. But at the end of your life you won’t be wishing you’d done things differently.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for continuing to show up, creating awareness, and helping us challenge ourselves to live bigger lives. 💗

426: When you KNOW you can't keep doing the same thing
24:46

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • How I got rejected so many times pitching for fitness covers
  • The ways in which I used to self-sabotage
  • What happened when I invested in something I could not afford
  • Why I’ve created EventLuv with Lindsey Schwartz

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

On my run this morning something triggered my memory back to when I was in the fitness world but hadn’t started doing self-development work. I was binge eating and telling myself stories about why I wasn't good enough to do this work. I knew I had greatness inside of me, but I didn’t know what shape or form I would share it in. I put a training program on my credit card and showed up at that event so freaked out, but it totally paid off. Now I’ve created a 5-day workshop called EventLuv to teach the next generation of speakers, leaders and teachers how to create transformational experiences. The event is in January 2020 and the Earlybird price ends September 30. We’ll cover so many things including:

  • How do you protect your energy in the room? 
  • How do you walk through the hallways to get to the bathroom without getting involved in a conversation that could really drain you or deeply affect you before you get back on stage?
  • What do you charge for your event?
  • How do you plan to make a profit? 
  • How do you know if your audience is even receptive to events?

  • Chase’s new book, Creative Calling
  • Learning to listen to our inner voice
  • Toxic myths about creativity
  • Creating a place for your work to land
  • Protecting your mornings
  • Making money from things which are rooted in play and joy

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

In second grade Chase Jarvis loved doing stand-up comedy and produced a weekly comic book strip. Then one day at the parent teacher conference he overheard his teacher telling his mom that he was so much better at sports than he was at art. Because we gravitate to where we get rewarded, he became an athlete, went to college on a soccer scholarship and made the Olympic Development Program soccer team. Then, a week before Chase graduated college, his grandfather died from a heart attack and left Chase his cameras. Chase started teaching himself how to take pictures and that led to his career as one of the most influential photographers of the past decade, the developer of the first photo app to share images to social networks and the founder of CreativeLive. Now Chase is on a mission to break down myths about what creativity is and who can practice it. He says that when we look at all the decisions we make every day - what you're going to have for dinner, what business that you're going to build - as creative acts, that’s when we understand that we have the agency to create our lives.



Question Highlights:

  • How did you come to think of yourself as creative?
  • How do you protect your creative time?
  • How do make space for creativity when you really need to be making money?

 

Guest Bio:

Chase Jarvis is an award-winning artist, entrepreneur, and one of the most influential photographers of the past decade. 

He has created campaigns for Apple, Nike, Red Bull and others, was a contributor to the Pulitzer-winning New York Times story Snowfall, and earned an Emmy nomination for his documentary Portrait of a City. He also created Best Camera--the first photo app to share images to social networks, and is the Founder of CreativeLive, where more than 10 million students learn photography, video, design, music and business from the world's top creators and entrepreneurs.

He's a keynote speaker, an advisor to Fortune 100 brands, and has been a guest at the Obama White House, the United Nations, the Library of Congress, 10 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace, and the DIFC in Dubai.

  • Lindsay Schwartz and Lori’s 5-day immersive workshop on how to run profitable events, retreats or masterminds
  • Making decisions and burning the boats
  • Being OK with disappointing people

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today I’m talking about making decisions. To actually make a decision you have to put skin in the game, say no to things and schedule your calendar so that it’s aligned with your dreams. Lately I've been fierce about making sure that I have room in my calendar for all of my new projects. And I am so proud of myself because, looking back at last year, I had a calendar full of things that I didn't necessarily want to do. I was more reacting to life than actually taking time to think if it was something that would move the needle forward. I was doing things because I didn't want to say no and hurt people's feelings. But you have to say no to things in order to create space for your dreams. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

Today I’m talking all about the excuses we use to stop ourselves moving forward. I don’t know how and I can’t is a choice. I used to be addicted to believing that everything I needed in order to bust through was outside of me. But really I was too afraid to move forward. I didn't want to do the hard work. I didn't want to leave my shit friends behind because they were familiar. I didn’t know who I was without my anxiety. It’s possible to break out of being stuck in the life we tolerate but don’t love. And a lot of times that starts with just one nice word to yourself, or saying a prayer, or asking for help. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

418: Free yourself of body blame, addiction and self-loathing with Dr. Morgan Francis
01:12:50

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Chris and Lori’s course, Become Aligned
  • How to work through pain rather than avoiding it
  • The phases of grief
  • How and when to ask for help
  • Why we are so much more than our external appearance
  • How diet culture teaches us to deny ourselves the pleasure and nourishment of food
  • How when we deny ourselves nourishment, our mental health declines

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Dr. Morgan Francis joins me to talk about cultivating self-love, particularly in the face of diet culture and a societal obsession with external appearance. Dr. Morgan spent years trying to avoid the pain of her brother’s death when she was a teenager and one of the ways she did this was by developing an eating disorder. She says she knew there was a problem when she was out on a date and she could not even pay attention to what he was saying because bread had been put on the table. Now she is a therapist and runs an online course for women looking to improve their body image.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How do we stop yourself getting stuck in fear and worry?
  • What are the phases of grief?
  • How can we accept the pain that comes with all of the beautiful things in life?
  • Where did your passion for helping others come from? 
  • How do we know when we need help?
  • How do we confront our problem, but not get stuck in the problem?
  • Why is body image such a hot spot for you?
  • How can we focus on building our identity outside of our external appearance? 
  • What was the Minnesota starvation study?

 

Guest Bio:

Dr. Morgan Francis is a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, a licensed mental health therapist and the owner of Scottsdale Premier Counseling. Her mission is to break through the mental health shame game. With over 20 years of experience specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and negative body image, Dr. Francis can empower you to make peace with your body and food. 

For too long society has been embracing diet culture and pushing you to believe how you look is not good enough. No matter how thin or fit you look, you cannot outrun the pressures that surround you because the transformation of loving and appreciating your body happens internally, not externally. Dr. Francis’ online courses on body image and self-love will help you to take back your life.

  • Getting comfortable with fear and failure
  • Getting comfortable with feedback and criticism

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

 

Today’s episode is all about getting comfortable with fear and failure. These are the only things that are stopping you from living your biggest dream and living out the gifts that God gave you. And when you don’t live your biggest dream, you're stopping the person who you're meant to help from getting the help that they need. You are literally cutting off their lifeline because that message is meant to come through you. Write down what you’re afraid of to see how ridiculous your thoughts are. Are you scared that your opinionated friend Becky is going to say something on Instagram? Are you scared that your moms’ group is going to say, who do you think you are? Are you scared that your husband or ex-boyfriend will say you're failing again? I want you to literally ask pain and fear to bring it on because you can handle it. Pain and the failure is where all of the learning and value is. Bring it on. You can do hard things, you can handle hard things. You can handle feedback, you can handle criticism. You choose if you're going to get taken down or you get back up but every time you get back up, you get stronger, you grow a muscle. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

16:52

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Lindsay Schwartz and Lori’s 5-day immersive workshop on how to run profitable events, retreats or masterminds
  • How fear is your friend
  • How fear has so many beautiful messages for us
  • How fear marks the exact spot to where you need to go

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today’s episode is all about fear. There are three main things that you need to know. Firstly, fear is your friend. When we resist fear, we're so focused on what we don't want to happen. We're so focused on building stories that don't actually exist yet that we're not actually putting our energy towards moving forward and taking action and creating a world where no matter what, we are only focusing on winning, and we're only focusing on things going right. So give it an outlet and space to acknowledge it in. Secondly fear has so many beautiful messages for you. It's trying to tell us something, like, hey, this might need a little bit more attention, or, you need a little more support around this. Thirdly, your fear marks the exact spot to where you need to go. Write down the three actions that you're most afraid of doing. One of those is most likely the thing that you need to do in the next week. If you don't get comfortable with fear, you'll never be able to create what you want because every step you take is uncertain. And there is no one there to tell you that you have made a good decision because you're the boss. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

This is going to be the rest of your life if you don't take massive action. If you're looking at someone that you think is lucky, maybe they’re seeing success because they are willing to not be liked, they're willing to do it scared, they're willing to fail, to be wrong, to get criticized or get nasty messages in their DMs. They're willing to invest, they're willing to make massive risks, to lose money, to feel uncertain every damn day and they’re willing to do anything to create the support that they need. They're willing to keep moving and love themselves, even when other people don't. So if you are struggling, know that it’s because you’re growing and getting stronger.

In this conversation I learnt a lot about how Natalya and Naomi push through to reach their goals. For example it took Natalya five years to get accepted for WWE but she kept trying.

 

Question Highlights:

  • You want to stay in shape for the ring. But you’re on the road all the time. How do you mentally prepare for that? 
  • What do you do when it feels like you can't push through mentally? 
  • What is something that you wish more people knew about you?
  • What are your next steps, career wise?
  • When did you realize that helping other competitors and lifting them up actually lifts you up?
  • What are you most excited about right now in your life?
  • What is something for people who feel like they're either afraid or hitting a wall? 

 

Guest Bio:

With a combination of beauty, talent and untamed desire, Natalya is proudly carrying on the legacy of the legendary Hart Family in WWE.

The daughter of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, Natalya was trained in the rough-and-tumble Hart Dungeon. That unforgiving training ground that churned out mat greats like Brian Pillman and Natalya's husband, Tyson Kidd, molded The Queen of Harts into one of WWE's most dangerous submission grapplers. She also learned from her uncle Bret “Hit Man” Hart by driving many of her opponents to tap via a Sharpshooter.

Her presence out of the ring is almost as formidable: Starring on E!’s Total Divas reality series and working as an active supporter of WWE and The Creative Coalition’s Be a STAR Alliance, Make-A-Wish, Susan G. Komen and the WrestleMania Reading Challenge.

Natalya came agonizingly close to capturing championships for several years until she finally broke through at SummerSlam 2017, defeating Naomi for the SmackDown Women’s Championship to earn the gold for the first time since claiming the Divas Title in 2010.

The WWE Universe always assumed it would take a man of tremendous ability to live up to the legendary legacy of the pink and black. As it turned out, it’s doing just fine in this woman’s hands.

As the second-highest cause of whiplash behind car accidents, Naomi first turned heads as a dancer for the NBA's Orlando Magic and hip-hop stars like Flo Rida. These talents would take her around the world, as Naomi performed everywhere from North Korea to Indonesia.

Despite all that success, Naomi's dance steps couldn’t satisfy her competitive spirit, which is how she found herself as a contestant on WWE NXT. Despite being eliminated in the final week of her season, Naomi soon launched into orbit around Planet Funk, as one half of The Funkadactyls. From there, she broke out on her own, determined to take WWE by storm.

The Total Divas star has since had a series of remarkable runs as both fan-favorite and corner-cutting villain, doggedly pursuing the Divas Championship for the better part of a year and cementing her status as a ring general by heading up the attitude-filled Team B.A.D. of Tamina and Sasha Banks during the Divas Evolution. 

Naomi then reinvented herself yet again as part of the SmackDown LIVE brand, making one-and-all feel the glow as she came face-to-face with her destiny by winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship twice, including an epic victory at WrestleMania 33 in a Six-Pack Challenge Match. A year later, she made history once again when she eliminated Bayley to win the first-ever WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34. After the 2019 Superstar Shake-up, Naomi is now adding a glow to the red brand.

408: Toxic people and how to handle them
17:06

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Chris and Lori’s mastermind, Fast Foundations
  • Why sometimes we need to end friendships
  • Why everyone in our life is there to teach us something
  • How we must give up the idea that we are always right



Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today I want to chat with you about toxic friendships and breaking up with friends. I know some of you are like, yes, please give me the goods. I need to break up with friends right now. It's absolutely true. Some relationships have an expiration date and when they pass it, the friendship can go south. Not everyone is supposed to be with you for your entire journey. People who we attract in our lives that cause problems from the get-go can also teach us something - how to treat everyone with compassion and set boundaries in the most loving way possible. To move through life with more flow and ease, we must give up the idea that we are always right and in fact assume that everything is our fault and that everything is a lesson. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

403: Becoming a champion with Alexa Bliss
46:49

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • How Alexa got into wrestling
  • How Alexa recovered from eating disorders
  • How Alexa creates safe boundaries for herself and deals with online bullying
  • Alexa’s plans for her future

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today my guest on the show is professional wrestler Alexa Bliss. Alexa watched wrestling growing up, then competed as a bodybuilder while she was recovering from eating disorders. Although she got a lucky break to become a wrestler she says really she was training for it her whole life because she’s been in athletics since she was five. In this conversation we talk about online bullying, handling out of control situations and pushing yourself to achieve your goals. What I learnt from interviewing Alexa is that the basic mindset and principles are the same exact across the board, no matter what your dream is. I don't care if you want to start a business. I don't care if you want to be an entrepreneur. I don't care if you want to be a WWE superstar. It is all the same mindset and belief in yourself and connection to other people.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you become a professional wrestler?
  • How did you integrate recovering from eating disorders into your fitness journey?

 

  • How do you keep a safe boundary for yourself mentally when you're in the public eye all the time?

 

  • What keeps you going in those moments where you don't think there's anything left?

 

  • What do you hope teenage girls get from seeing you?

 

Guest Bio:

Alexa has been a driven competitor her entire life, excelling especially in gymnastics and eventually becoming a Division I cheerleader. Alexa even entered the world of competitive bodybuilding, where she became one of the youngest competitors to receive her IFBB Professional status. With such an incredible athletic background, it’s little wonder that Alexa quickly became one of NXT’s most dangerous Superstars. Although she never captured the NXT Women’s Title, she was a constant threat.

 

When she joined SmackDown LIVE, Alexa ascended to the top by becoming a two-time SmackDown Women's Champion. Then she made history at WWE Payback, becoming the first Superstar to win both the SmackDown Women's Title and the Raw Women's Title.

  • What scientific studies are revealing about spirituality
  • How to find fulfillment
  • Asking for guidance
  • The power of surrender
  • Using a God box to solve your problems
  • Keeping your vibe high
  • Finding your soul correction and soul contribution

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today my guest on the podcast is Anna Yusim. Anna is a nationally recognized psychiatrist, speaker and author with a private practice in New York City. After spending so much time studying and working with science, Anna felt there was something missing in her life so she set out to find it. She traveled, lived and worked in over 50 countries while studying Kabbalah, learning Buddhist meditation and working with South American shamans and Indian gurus. Her life goal for many years now has been to figure out how science and spirituality work hand in hand. And that's ultimately what led her to write her book, Fulfilled: The Science of Spirituality and How it Can Help You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life. In this episode she shares with us her fundamental truths around fulfillment.

 

Also learn about my Become Aligned course. The reason why my husband Chris and I created this course is because we get asked so many questions on how we started living the life that we live now, a life of happiness, of abundance, of really understanding that life is always full of problems every single day, but there's always a solution. In the course we cover everything from mindset to the rituals that we do every single day. We talk about different energy sources, we talk about your purpose, what that actually means and how it's always changing. We show you how to build a tribe to support where you're going. And we talk about wealth, abundance, money, all of the good things, and how to sustain them.



Question Highlights:

  • I want to know how science and spirituality work hand in hand. What is a really good starting place for people to start unpacking that?
  • How does spirituality change your brainwaves?
  • What is it about being fulfilled for you that made you want to write about this whole topic?
  • What is your main false sense of fulfillment? And how did you figure out what was true for you?
  • Is there something that you're surrendering right now? And what exactly is the narrative in your brain when you are releasing or letting go of something or offering it up?
  • What does living in your purpose mean? Can your purpose change? How do we know when it changes?
  • What are the fundamental truths that you have found around fulfillment for you?

 

Guest Bio:

Dr. Anna Yusim is an award-winning, nationally recognized psychiatrist, speaker and author with a private practice in New York City. She is also a lecturer at Yale’s Psychiatry Department. After working as a neurobiology researcher with Dr. Robert Sapolsky Ph.D and completing studies at Stanford, Yale and NYU, Dr. Yusim felt that something was missing from her life. In her quest to find it, she traveled, lived and worked in over 50 countries while studying Kabbalah, learning Buddhist meditation and working with South American shamans and Indian gurus.

15:36

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Why you should come to The Bliss Project in March 2020
  • Pain is the way we learn and expand
  • We experience pain when we are not living our purpose
  • If we don’t transform our suffering, we transmit it to our families, our neighbours and our communities

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

 

Today's podcast is inspired by the idea that pain is a valuable lesson. We experience a lot of pain when we don’t know the things we're put on the earth to do or we don’t know how to do them. If we don’t transform our suffering, we transmit your suffering to our families, our neighbors and even to our communities. So we have to start taking action on the things that we know we are meant to do. Also The Bliss Project is coming up in March 2020. I would love to see you all there. It is one of the most amazing things that I've ever gotten to do and participate in and it's your opportunity to meet some of the most epic women that you can possibly meet and be able to have them in your life as friends and business partners.

Aloha, Lori and Evans. I am writing in to send you a BIG THANK YOU from sunny Scotland. (Kidding, it's never sunny here...) But even when the rain is pouring down, your podcast never fails to brighten my day! At 21, I have just started my journey of "adulting" but listening to this podcast has been the most amazing and refreshing reminder that I don't have to give up loving myself and having fun just because society sometimes tells me to! I listen to you guys on my bike, at the gym, when i'm cuddling my dog...you name it! And I am always in stitches and LOVE hearing such great guidance that resonates with me each week!! You guys are cool, wanna be my friends? Stay glorious, Emilia.

Great Minds Rant Alike

The first episode I listened to I was hearing what sounded like crazy banter between Lori and her sidekick partner Evans. I wasn’t sure this was for me. But I was now having fun because they were having so much fun. For some reason I kept listening, it’s been 5 months now, and I have gotten something out of each episode. I’m a few years older than Lori, and can totally relate to all of her music, TV, movie references to yesteryears. I shared three takeaways from the show with Sheri Salata on my IG, and I’ve never shared a show there before. Then, when I heard the episode called Turn your Hard Times Into Greatness, and Lori shared the anxious rant that runs in her head that keeps her from being present in every aspect of her life, I realized I love this podcast so much because I can relate. So many of us can. I’m not the only one saying the same rant to myself. Lori will give you tips on all aspects of Earning Your Happy, because she’s gone through this and is completely relatable. Listen up!

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Monique Bryan shows up in such a beautiful way. She is a speaker, a personal branding expert, a triple positive breast cancer survivor. She also helps successful women entrepreneurs package and sell their genius and unlock the lucrative world of personal brand building. Monique draws widespread admiration for her passion, hustle and unshakeable commitment to helping women showcase their expertise and pitch with confidence. She gave a Tribe Talk at the Bliss Project this year, and I’m so excited she could join me on the podcast to share her story with you all.



Question Highlights:

 

  • What was your experience preparing for the Tribe Talk? 

 

  • Was there any parts that you were like, ‘Oh, my God, if I don't share this, will they understand?’
  • What were the reminders that you had to tell yourself to get through cancer treatment?

 

  • How do you accept help or ask for help?

 

  • What does that first step of being able to speak your truth look like?

 

Guest Bio:

Monique Bryan is based in Toronto and runs her own branding consultancy. Monique has a BA in Fashion Design from Ryerson University and spent time studying abroad in London at the University of Westminster. 

Upon returning to Toronto, Monique landed a design position for national retailer Le Chateau and worked her way up to Product Manager for all of ladieswear, becoming the youngest executive at the company. She quickly learned the ins and outs of manufacturing and global sourcing from working with their partners across Asia. But it was her frequent trips to India where she discovered her love of jewellery design and in 2010 she launched a jewellery company, landing her line in retailers across Toronto and New York. 

This began her crash course in entrepreneurship and where she discovered her true love for business and marketing. So, when she was offered a chance to head up an accelerator program helping entrepreneurs jump-start their business five years later, she jumped at the chance. Partnering with global brands such as Paypal, Burberry, and Toms Shoes, Monique thought she had found her calling. But before she had a chance to decide, she discovered a lump in her left breast that changed her life forever.

Over the next year Monique underwent eight rounds of chemotherapy, surgery and 21 rounds of radiation, documenting the entire journey through her uncensored and very real account, on her blog, “Surprise, It’s Cancer!” Her blog was discovered by the writers at “Entrepreneur Magazine” and Monique was featured in the October issue in 2018. Today Monique has built a loyal following through her 10K + followers, speaks at events and conducts workshops while running her brand consultancy.

  • How it’s important to be able to ask for help
  • Making sure that the environment that you are in or creating for yourself is thriving
  • How you need to show up for yourself every day

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

I’m so excited to bring you this episode with the amazing Gina Meyers. Gina is a celebrity fitness instructor and motivational life coach in Los Angeles, California, where she has been changing lives for over a decade. On the show we talk about how Gina changed her life when she realized she was desperately unhappy and how she manages to show up every day, even when she’s not feeling it.



Question Highlights:

 

  • How did you learn to create the SoulCycle experience for people?  

 

  • What does it look like when you feel like you're failing?
  • What were the thoughts going on in your head that you were like, I can't live this way anymore?
  • How did you meet your husband?
  • What is one of the biggest lessons that motherhood has taught you?
  • What has being in a SoulCycle room just about every single day taught you?
  • Why did you start racing cars?
  • What is something that you are craving more of right now in your life?

 

Guest Bio:

Originally from Cincinnati Ohio, Gina packed her bag and followed her childhood dream of being an actress when she moved to California in 1996. After years of auditioning for small parts on television shows, movies, and commercials, she realized that her passion was not in the entertainment industry. Instead, she found her calling in the early 2000s when she realized her true passion was helping others love themselves and feel good in their own skin. Gina’s fitness coaching career began as a yoga and spin instructor at a boutique studio in Venice, California. In 2012, Gina was recruited to be a founding Los Angeles instructor for SoulCycle. Previously only in New York City, Gina helped launch SoulCycle’s west coast venture. She personally helped open up four current Los Angeles studios: West Hollywood, Brentwood, Santa Monica, and Malibu.

Recognized for her fitness following, in 2015 Gina became an ambassador for Lululemon Santa Monica and was promoted to Master Instructor at SoulCycle in 2017 as part of the first group of Master Instructors on the west coast. Gina’s passion is grounded in helping others feel their best. In Gina’s work, she not only motivates and inspires her clients to push their physical limits, but to also be mindful of their internal dialogue to create shifts in their perspective. Gina’s classes offer a safe space for individuals to explore their limits, challenge their minds and their bodies, and most importantly walk away feeling accomplished and successful. Gina strives to create meaningful connections and believes vulnerability and self-love are the foundation of a happy life. When not teaching or training, Gina is spending quality time with her husband, two dogs, and two year old son.

Show Notes:

Another quickie because there's always time to find inspiration. This episode is all about being on the struggle bus. Right now I'm not feeling super clear. I'm not feeling super strong. And I think that these times are the times that make you reevaluate what's most important. I embrace all parts of me, tight and jiggly smooth and wrinkly, kind and prickly. Mistake and masterpiece exists perfectly inside of me. Failure guides my way. Hopefully this resonates, and I'm just excited to be on this journey with you.

I MEAN HOLY SH%$ WHERE HAVE LORI AND EVANS BEEN MY WHOLE LIFE?!!! I’ve seriously binged all the Q+A podcasts before I went to any other ones...y’all make me laugh so hard and i wanna be you both when i grow up. Sorry that was weird, but you guys are awesome and thanks for making me laugh and learn so much.

 

Question 1:

Samantha Howe
I am at a transitioning time in my life, finishing up my degree, working full-time and raising two beautiful kiddos, and over the last 3 years I’ve been on a personal journey to find my passion and to heal myself and I’ve noticed I’ve lost a lot of “friends” in this process. I don’t find myself sad about losing them but do you believe that it’s all part of the process of finding oneself? Like true friends would stick with me and the others fall off because of whatever reason? I’d love to hear what you think. I’m on the search for my tribe and I cannot settle until I find them.

 

Question 2:

@mrs.swarlos

New opportunity is just around the corner. How do I lean into it without tripping myself up?

  • How even bad decisions give us valuable feedback
  • How joining a mastermind can help you take massive action
  • How when you live in your purpose, God and the Universe have your back

Show Notes:

In this episode I talk about how you have to decide RIGHT NOW! Indecision is killing your life and there’s no time for it. When you fail to make decisions straightaway, you create more work for yourself and you stop yourself from moving forward.

 

What’s worse is that you stop yourself from getting valuable feedback. I promise that even if you have made the wrong decision, the feedback you’ll get will be invaluable.

When you live in purpose and act with love, God and the Universe have your back. So decide what kind of life you want to live, take one step at a time and be fully alive.

Review of the Week:

@melysaalzbeta

"I first saw Lori at an event in October 218 where she did amazing spoken word poem and sang bravely in front of a very large audience. I didn't know I liked spoke word! Shortly thereafter I began listening to her podcast-addictively. I've been listening almost daily ever since. I love Lori's realness, how she can be sophisticated well of wisdom, and/or a supergoof, and somehow pull it off superbly! Her episodes are like a three course meal. when I'm on limited time I go to her "Quickie" series like an appetizers. I've had more time or I really need to sink my teeth into something, her main course of interviewing extraordinary people is completely satisfying. And on the days where I just want to indulge and feel good I listen to her Q&A series with Evan for a delicious, sweet bite that brightens my day every time. My best days have included this podcast! Stay brave, stay real and I'm staying tuned."

Show Notes:

I am SO excited for today’s episode because I sat down with Amelia Travis, a yoga teacher with over 500 hours of education, a writer, speaker, business coach, and the founder of Stoked Yogi. After breaking her back in a surfing accident, Amelia realized that life is too short to do anything but what you love - our dreams exist for a reason. Her daily mission is to love people and help them activate their highest potential. Amelia and I met at The Bliss Project, and I am so grateful that our paths crossed!

Guest Bio:

Amelia Travis is an E-RYT 500, writer, speaker, and business coach. As the founder of Stoked

Yogi, she’s impacted thousands of lives through yoga education programs, stand up paddle and surf experiences, and women’s empowerment retreats.

The journey to an empowered life was a long and winding road. Body dysmorphia, people

pleasing and perfectionist tendencies led Amelia down the path of drug addiction, disordered

eating, abusive relationships and a “sugar baby” lifestyle, and spiraled her into a rock bottom of a hundred thousand dollars in debt and a lost and broken heart.

In 2009, a spiritual awakening led Amelia to the realization that she was the only one standing in the way of becoming the woman she wanted to be. She decided to embrace messy, imperfect, unapologetic FEELING, and has since built and scaled a multi-six figure business, certified over 700 yoga teachers in stand up paddle board yoga and coached hundreds of women to personal and professional success.

Amelia’s writing has been published in Yoga Journal, Huffington Post, and the Inertia. She has

also had the honor of sharing a message on mindset shift as a TEDx speaker.

In 2012, after breaking her back in a surfing accident, Amelia realized that life is too short to do

anything but what you love - our dreams exist for a reason. Her daily mission is to love people

and help them activate their highest potential. She lives by her personal mantra: Set your

intention, breathe it to life.

Guest Bio:

I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence. With home being a less-than-idyllic place, I clung to work and education as my ticket out of the bedroom I shared with three brothers, and the low-income reality of the life my parents couldn’t seem to escape. The minute I was old enough, I threw myself into any job I could get my hands on, from washing cars at filling stations, to washing hair in salons. In hindsight, the high-end neighborhood across the tracks (home to the doctors and lawyers) likely played an unconscious role in my decision to attend school to be a chiropractor. Post high school graduation, I moved to Atlanta to complete my training and never looked back.

 

Over the next decade, I built a successful chiropractic practice, welcomed my first child, experienced the heartbreak of a challenging divorce, found healing and redemption when I met and married my wife, and read a book that changed my life and uncovered for me the world of lifestyle-entrepreneurship. That book was The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris. Having spent my entire life thus far in relentless hustle mode, I was ready for the PLAY HARD side of the hard work coin. My wife and I wanted to escape the grind and travel the world, so we did. In 2006 we launched our travel/lifestyle Blog ‘Jetset Life’ and my all or nothing tendencies showed up for the party.

 

Predictably, poppin’ bottles on yachts grew old and I became aware that once again my life was out of balance and I felt disconnected and unfulfilled. THIS was the pivotal moment I decided to apply myself to mastering the counter-balance between the science of achievement and the art of fulfillment. From THIS, the Work Hard Play Hard podcast and mastermind was born.

Think for 3 seconds, right now, on that part of you that when you’re with your best friend you totally fall in love with yourself. We all have projects, dreams, and parts of our personality that we hide from the outside world. As we create our projects and as we show up more in the world, we tend to get stuck in our old patterns, leaving us feeling like we can’t show up fully as our true self. Today, I’m digging into this topic and sharing my ideas on being faux-ductive versus productive.

Show Notes:

Last year, even though incredible, was a year of burnout for me. I’m excited to say that I’m starting to feel like I’m back in my groove, and I’ve really found power in saying no. Saying no isn’t necessarily because I don’t want to do something, but because I want to create more space. Creating space takes work! Often times, setting these boundaries actually feels like you’re doing the wrong thing because you aren’t doing what others are doing. Today, I’m getting real and honest about what this space looks like and what you need to do in order to prepare for the next steps in your life and business.

Show Notes

Today’s quickie is a special one because I am sitting down with James Purpura, the co-founder and CEO of Powerful U, a personal evolution company with the goal to inspire people to tap into their potential. James’s story is a beautiful one of incredible transformation, growth, and perseverance, and I can’t wait for you to listen in on the conversation we have today. Chris and I will be speaking at the Powerful U conference, and have an amazing ticket price for all of our listeners– you don’t want to miss this one!

 

James and Steph’s journey of transformation is nothing short of extraordinary. Before they met 15 years ago, both of their lives had hit rock bottom. They were both financially, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt. Life had beaten them down and shattered their self-esteem. At the lowest point in their lives, they met and were united by a shared vision of creating and becoming more. They started the only place they could by working on themselves and helping each other grow. They believed in each other but more importantly, they challenged each other every step of the way, and never settled.

 

Shortly after meeting, Steph wrote James’ first resume and taught him how to send an email. This began James’ unlikely career in technology. Around this time, they also started a family. Fast forward fifteen years, after many ups and downs and a lot of hard work, Steph and James recently sold their tech company, one of the world’s largest construction software companies. They now have five beautiful children and live an extraordinary life. Through this journey of self-creation, they developed a personal philosophy centered around perception. They believe perception, more than any other factor, will determine how someone’s life will turn out. James and Steph started Powerful U as their way to give back to the world. They believe that through the knowledge they accumulated on their journey they can help others live the life they desire. Their dream is to bring personal development to the masses by making it affordable and readily available to all seekers.

With much enthusiasm for entrepreneurship , she set off to start her first business, which failed spectacularly. However, Jane was undeterred and got right back on the horse, starting the online fashion brand, Showpo the following month. What started off with a laptop and two shelves of clothing is now an online global fashion empire,shipping to over 100 countries.

A prominent figure in the Australian start up scene, Lu has been nominated for numerous awards,taking home taking the title of Cosmopolitan’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015 and Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia in 2016.

Lu’s personal experiences led her to build her own entrepreneurial community, Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine, which she co-founded with serial entrepreneur, Gen George. ​Together they have grown an active community of over 85,000 members.​​ Bringing women together to hear (and give) real, honest advice, to be inspired and to join forces - all over a good class of wine of course.With Lu at the helm, 8 years since its founding, Showpo owns its status as one of Australia’s fastest growing fashion e-commerce retailers. Recently awarded the highly coveted Australian Online Retailer of The Year Award and is on track to reach its goal of $100 million in revenue by 2020 with no external funding.

Taking the leap into your purpose is a little bit of a loaded statement, because it can mean so much, but it’s important to not allow overwhelm to sink in, because it isn’t all going to happen at once.

Today we are talking all about taking the big leap into what you know is your purpose here, in this life.

In today’s quickie, I really wanted to talk about validation. I have been thinking SO much about validation and what it means lately, so I knew I had to share.

Seeking the validation from others and then getting it doesn’t actually make us happy if we don’t love and approve ourselves.

Nothing is out there actually making us feel a certain way, it’s actually us taking it in and applying our own meaning to it. If we could all really look at ourselves and the season that we’re in, it’s important to remember that space is truly just a visitor– some stay longer than others, but they will leave.

Review of the Week:

Jessib1981

I have followed Lori’s podcast for over 2 years and a few months ago moved across the country and lost my self-development groove. In turn, I recently found myself in a rut, feeling alone & unworthy. While I knew deep down I would find a way back, I had to think of what I needed. On my drive back to VA from WI, I listened to over 20 podcasts back-to-back and felt revived & resuscitated!! I hate to say how long it’s been since I’ve tuned in, but my new favorite episodes are Q&A with her assistant/friend Evans!!! They are awesome and hilarious. Just the vibes I need to surround myself with until I find more of my own tribe. Love you juggernauts!

 

Question 1: @nataliecturner “How to be high vibe while waiting? Ex: hearing about a work opportunity, text results, etc.”

 

Question 2: @sigsfitbits “Some tips on hosting your first workshop event?”

 

Question 3: @laurenrichellequigley “What is your favorite tip for getting your creative juices flowing?”

In today’s conversation, Chris and I share our top 6 hacks to succeed this year. From business, to life, and relationships, this episode covers it all. Be sure to listen all the way through because we share the biggest thing that we will do this year– hint: it involves YOU.

 

After an 11-year career as an executive and partner in the banking industry, Chris experienced plenty of success, however he severely lacked fulfillment – and was completely burned out. Recognizing that a change needed to be made, he retired from banking in 2011 and partnered with his wife, Lori, and her brand, LoriHarder.com along with their Isagenix network marketing business. Chris now handles most of the business affairs and business coaching for their two multimillion dollar brands, and has found exactly the fulfillment and happiness he was seeking in a career.

 

Chris is the host of the new hit podcast, “For the Love of Money,” aimed at helping people bust through their money mindset blocks to become unapologetic about their pursuit of wealth. It is through interviewing business moguls and celebrities and exposing their exciting stories of contribution and philanthropy that he helps prove that money is a tool for good in a world with many needs.

I’m in a place right now where I’m observing my patterns and how those patterns tend to judge the emotions I feel.

I’m putting in the work to allow both ideas to have their own voice so that they can coexist within me. Today I’ll share an exercise that I’m going to do in order to help me (and you!) even further understand the patterns and emotions in my mind.

Her voice has gotten me thru so many struggles and has encouraged me to grow so much. Thank you, Lori, I am so grateful for you!”

 

Question Highlights:

  1. Destinee: “What is the best way to help family members, especially young family, explain the journey you are going through? I have a 10 year old brother and I find it difficult to explain to him that I am creating the best version of myself and chasing my dreams because of kids having such a hard time understanding such abstract ideas.”
  2. Veronica: "I'm listening to #249 with Mastin Kipp right now and you mention being trained to be a good audience member - do you think you could do an episode on that (or even just train Evans right now so we can listen in)? This idea of actively giving a speaker your energy is so wonderful I can't even handle it :)"
  3. Shari: "As for my question, I work in an office with about 20 people in a small confined sales office… I have such a hard time being myself on the phones with my clients when everybody is listening and it hinders me for some reason! Possibly could because I work with a lot of type a personalities, and I do you freeze up when it comes time to speaking up! Help!”
