Love this podcast. Positive & relevant for women/mothers. Alli & her guests' wisdom & encouragement (and coaching!) have become my favorite thing to listen to each week.

Description

Author, speaker, entrepreneur, and mom to five sons, Alli Worthington, hosts her show built on one simple premise- bring on people she loves, respects and wants to learn from. You will love the fun interview-style conversations followed by coaching time where Alli answers listener questions about faith, business, and life. Alli is also the author of Breaking Busy, Fierce Faith, and The Year of Living Happy. She loves speaking at conferences about faith, business, and living life well.

Episode Date
Jennifer Dukes Lee on happiness, boundaries, and having it all under control
01:03:46

In this episode we discuss:

  1. Why and how to make a list of core boundaries for your everyday life.
  2. Is there a difference between happiness and being joyful as a Christian?
  3. How to consult with God about what to do every day.
  4. Practical tools to help you give up control daily.

 

Favorite quotes-

  1. Scientifically we were made to be happy and by our creator, we are created for happiness
  2. God empowered us to do more, so I was like, "Lord what does it look like for me to let go of what I am not supposed to be hanging on to, to hang on tighter to those things you have really called me to do, and find this inner peace I once had in you, Lord that I forgot was even possible." 

  3. Because I am a list maker I use to put God at the top of the list which sounds like a neat thing to do because I would do my little quiet time and put an X in the box but then what I saw happening was God became an item on my todo list instead of him being involved in all areas of my life, what I have been trying to do  is instead of making him an item on the list, I am asking for His instead of giving him mine.

  4. We have to use our tools to change our lives.

 

Bonus: After the interview join me as I answer your questions about life, faith, and business.

 

In this episode, I answer these questions-

  1. What did you do for birthday parties when your kids were little? Birthday parties stress me out. (44:32)
  2. What do you do when you don’t want to do what God tells you to do? (48:39)
  3. How do I know when it’s time to hire employees? I just started my small business and want to make a plan. (56:10)

Jenni Catron on the enneagram, leadership, and the secret to real success
01:03:52

I’m with the brilliant Jenni Catron today talking about Enneagram types, how to best love and understand those around us, the phenomenal program we are doing together and the truth about the secret to success! 

In this episode we discuss:

  1.  A brief overview of each Enneagram profile
  2. The Women in Leadership Coaching Intensive
  3. How self-development and personal leadership are key to success

 

Favorite quotes-

  1. There are different images of God that we reflect as part of our personality. Every type has to be aware of when this goes to the unhealthy side. There’s beauty and there’s great things about each type but anything overused and misused can actually be a detriment rather than a strength.
  2. Lead yourself well to lead others better. The hardest person you’ll lead is yourself.
  3. One of the secrets of success is surrounding yourself in a healthy community.
  4. I love leadership I love helping people understand that sphere of influence you’ve been given, and how do you steward that well.

 

Bonus: After the interview join me as I answer your questions about life, faith, and business.

 

In this episode, I answer these questions-

  1. I learned so much about the importance of self-talk in Fierce Faith. I loved the whole book and it literally changed my life. There’s one thing I still need more help with, I can’t seem to break the habit on negative self-talk. Any advice (47:39)
  2.  Sometimes I feel like I can hear God very clearly and sometimes I don’t feel like a hear from him at all. I get panicked when I can’t hear him and wonder if it’s because he is upset with me. Is this normal? (51:53)
  3. I keep bumping up against struggles in my business. How do you know if it’s a sign to stop? (56:09)

  1. Starting out as a woman entrepreneur, we relate to people who say, "I'm still not sure it's going to work."

 

  1. When I've interviewed women entrepreneurs they would say, "I started out not really knowing what I was doing, but I did it anyway and learned as I went."

Nicki Koziarz on overcoming comparison, finding your calling, and saying yes to new adventures
40:13

Today I'm with my favorite Bible-teaching-farmer friend Nicki Koziarz talking about how to overcome comparison, and what happens to a family that decides (all of a sudden) to buy a fixer-upper farm.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  1. Nicki and her family's unexpected move to their “Fixer Upper Farm”
  2. How to recognize and overcome the comparison battle
  3. How to overcome the feeling that we aren’t measuring up

 

Favorite quotes-

  1. I think we are foolish to allow our souls to believe that comparison doesn’t try to compromise things inside us because it’s been happening since the beginning of time.
  2. Comparison is a battle to see who's truth we're ultimately going to align our lives with, ours or God's.
  3.  We have to trust God so much that if He doesn't give it to us, we don't want it.
  4. I think that when we are asking that quiet question ‘why her?’ I think that in order for us to really walk through it and if we are not going to let comparison compromise us, we are going to have to go back to truth!
