Description

Hey Friend! Welcome to 'But, What if You DID?' I’m your host Alyson! I'm an Intuitive Life Coach, Podcaster, holistic health advocate & …cat mom. I create space for millennials walking through the messy middle of life transitions to energetically connect back to their core values & inner wisdom to live a meaningful life on their terms!On this podcast we talk about all the things we, as a generation, were conditioned not to talk about and in doing so we're breaking down self-imposed barriers, confidently owning the messy middle in life transitions, and learning to influence culture shifts in our personal & professional lives. I share conversations with friends, thought leaders in the personal development space, and holistic wellness advocates who have been where you are and are here to show you just what's possible if you choose to leave the comfort zone behind!

Episode Date
Leadership Lesson: Building Trust in the Work Place & the Importance of Relational Capital
2068

Today we're kicking off season 4! In today's conversation we dive into what is trust, how to build trust, the difference between practical trust & emotional trust, what trust in the work place looks like and how to rebuild trust when trust is lost. We also dip our toe in exploring what relational capital is and how it might just be the thing that gets your through those tougher messy middle transitions. Relational capital is all about connectedness and when we aren't thriving, connectedness is for sure a core need.

Part 2: Building Culture - Why Investing In & Building People is the Key to Shifting Culture in Real Time... Ps. Leaders - Emotional Labor is Part of the Job!
1395

Episode 78 is Part 2 of my building culture mini series. In today's conversation I'm diving into why investing in & building people is the key to shifting culture in real time. But with building people comes a lot of emotional labor. In the book Radical Candor, they talk about how “Emotional labor is not just part of the job; it’s the key to being a good boss” and so we're diving into why this matters!

I share insight into why it so important for people to be able to bring their whole selves to work. We discuss why building the whole person matters and how we as leaders have an opportunity to get to know our teams on a new level. We talk about learning our employees key motivators (Check out the Motivation Code by Todd Henry!) and how learning what each person needs to avoid boredom & burnout is so key to building an engaged team. To wrap up, we chat how as the leader you are really more of the editor than the author! 

Something peak your interest, come learn along with us!

Part 1: Building Culture - What’s Working, What Isn’t & Why I Believe Middle Management is the Secret to Radical Change & Making the Shift to a ‘People First’ Approach
2235

Episode 77 is Part 1 of a 2-part Episode on Building Culture. If you aren't familiar with my story, I spent 15 years working in Entertainment Industry in a completely toxic work culture. After hitting my own personal rock bottom, I started over in the financial tech industry. I went from independent contributor to people leader all while going through a certification program to become a life coach. I have found my life coaching skills to be completely transferrable to my new position as a people leader and I'm sharing my thoughts & insight behind how I believe millennial leaders can shift the paradigm in front of us.

In today's conversation I share my personal experiences with what I see working, what I see NOT working, and why I truly believe middle managers are uniquely positioned to create change and lead the corporate shift to a 'people first' approach.

In our next episode we'll dive more into why I think people first matters and the realities that come with the emotional labor of being a strong people leader.

Growing our Relationship with Money, The Power of Choice & Living in the Gray Space with Sydney Fletcher
3044

In Episode 76, Sydney shares her personal story from ticking the box as a 'successful' corporate Graphic Designer to hitting rock bottom, to rebuilding during the pandemic  and stepping into & owning her identity as her most aligned self as a Life Coach & Yoga Instructor. While we truly hit on so many powerful lessons some of my favorites were how Sydney shifts the idea of 'positive thinking' to 'perspective', how awareness around binary thinking can help us move through stress & overwhelm, how to grow our relationship with money, the power of choice & what happens when we choose to live in the gray space. This is one of those episodes I've shared a nugget of wisdom from every chance I've had since it was recorded and I can't wait to hear your takeways!

Permission to be Human: My Journey to Healing my Inner People Pleaser
2110

In Episode 75, I'm sharing my journey to healing my inner people pleaser & inviting you to come along for the ride. 

"So if you're looking for permission to do something differently, seeking permission to try something new - consider this your sign from the universe. Permission Granted."

But I'll let you in on a little secret... you don't need my permission - you only need your own!

From the blog: 
"People pleasing… something I've been asked countless times to cover on the podcast and yet the timing never felt quite right. It's a conversation that has surfaced in many of my circles, under many different circumstances and yet because it wasn't front & center in my world - I wasn't sure what value I could add to conversation in that space. 

And then I started to notice a recurring theme in many of my 1:1 client sessions - from setting goals to ‘ditch the inner people pleaser’ to committing to action steps where ‘no’ is actually a full sentence, it seemed like the desire to heal this wound was surfacing at every corner. I was hearing it from peers, coworkers, executives in the hallway. It came up on nearly every coffee date with a friend. The message was loud and clear - millennials are done with people pleasing… 

And so I started to note the similar sentiments, observe the associated feelings, and to describe the environments in which these thoughts surfaced in my journal. And that was where I realized it was connected to this craving… this desire… for permission to come from an external source.  

It wasn't all that long ago that I found myself in a similar place in life seeking external permission to make any change even when deep down I could feel what was aligned & right. 

So - WHAT CHANGED?  

I stopped WAITING for permission and started to GIVE myself permission to do the things that felt right to me, even if it went against the grain."

From Chronic, Progressive, Incurable -> Turning Pain into Purpose with Sarah Waisler
2842

In today's conversation I'm sitting down with Sarah Waisler.  Sarah did a year-long juice fast to heal herself from conditions doctors told her were chronic, progressive, and incurable. This is a powerful conversation around healing your body, how the body keeps score, and how we all have the ability to heal within us.

EPISODE DETAILS
[4:53] Sarah's Story!
[8:00] Learning to be your own best advocate
[9:00] The body keeps score
[11:00] We are all doing the best we can with the tools we have
[11:26] The body is the subconscious mind
[16:00] Sarah's year long juice fast
[18:26] The mental and spiritual shifts that allowed the physical shifts to take place
[21:00] Falling off the wagon is part of the process - start when you're ready
[23:40} You're alive until you stop growing
[25:00] Pain into purpose - the lowest of the lows shows you how high your highest of the highs can go
[26:48] We will all go through some big life changing event - it's just a matter of when
[32:00] On removing fear from the equation - a symptom is just a sign from your body that is there to teach you something
[34:15] Learning to listen to your body
[36:00] The millions of things that had to align perfectly for us to be here
[37:25] On taking care of ourselves and showing gratitude
[39:10] Gratitude is the biggest expression of love there is
[40:15] Sarah's 'But, what if...' moment

Meet Sarah Waisler
Sarah did a year-long juice fast to heal herself from conditions doctors told her were chronic, progressive, and incurable. By the time she was 25, she had been diagnosed with over a dozen health conditions, was living with a wheelchair, a feeding tube, had been in organ failure multiple times, was rejected from major medical centers and top specialists for being too complicated, and was ready to give up. Instead, from a single, powerful conversation, Sarah chose hope.

On November 15, 2019 Sarah started her juice fast as one person and ended it on November 16th 2020 as someone completely different. She not only healed her physical body of all of the symptoms and conditions she was told would kill her, she also healed her emotional body which is what allowed the physical healing to take place. Since recognizing the universal truth that we are all magic and that we all have the ability to heal from whatever it is that we are experiencing, Sarah has made it her mission to share this message with the world. She regularly speaks on podcasts and is breaking into the world of public speaking, she is writing a book on her story as well as a children's book, and she has developed a coaching program to walk women through their own healing journies. You can find Sarah on Instagram as @sarahwaisler and on Facebook as Sarah - The Mind Body Magic.

3901

Episode 66 - Today I'm going behind the scenes with Katina Mountanos. Katina Mountanos is the Chief Well-being Officer and co-founder of Daydreamers, a mental well-being company that is expanding the minds of adults through creative habits. In an increasingly robotic world, Daydreamers is on a mission to help humans access our most innate and powerful trait - creativity - so we can all live happier, healthier lives. 

Katina is also a published well-being author (Simon & Schuster), has a Master's in Clinical Psychology from Columbia's Mind-Body Institute, and certified coach, meditation + yoga teacher. After enduring the burnout cycle, she started a well-being community for Millennials called On Adulting that continues to reach 75K+ people globally.

In today's conversation we dive into Katina's journey from starting the 'On-Adulting' blog which lead to writing a book to normalize the millennial experience (I.E. how to navigate adulthood in a happy and mindful way) to Katina's latest adventure co-founding 'Daydreamers' with her life partner Dupi. We talk about how to get people out of the 'languishing state' and into the 'flow state' and the mission behind 'Daydreamers'. We dive into where the idea came from and all the twists and turns the pandemic presented as they navigated the start-up world. Katina shares all about what is 'Daydreamers', why it's unique, who can benefit from it, what we can expect in the coming months and how to get involved!

Creating More Human-Centric Workplaces with Angela Howard
2914

In episode 65 we dive into all things culture with Angela Howard. Angela is an organizational psychologist, culture strategist and social entrepreneur working to build human-centric workplaces, better leaders and thriving communities along-side growth minded leaders. Her mission is to create more human-centric workplaces that send happier and more fulfilled humans home to further enrich their communities and society. She does this by serving as a trusted thought leader advisor to owners, founders and CEOs interested in shaping and “actualizing” their organizational cultures for the collective good of their organizations, employees and the communities they serve. 

Angela shares that culture really breaks down to a culmination of mindset, habits, behaviors, and norms over time and in today’s conversation we dissect existing cultural paradigms we face at work and how we can learn to break down the walls that no longer serve us so that we can create the groundswell needed to make lasting change. We dive into where to start when it comes to rebuilding culture, personal accountability as it pertains to culture, building cultural sustainability, and what it really takes to create a more human centric work place.

Angela is also the host of the ‘Humanly Possibly: Future of Work Conversations’ Podcast. For more conversations like today’s Angela’s podcast is a great resource.

1159

In Episode 63, we’ll dive into how I get started with goal setting (what brings you joy and meaning?), we’ll talk about how a simple perspective shift (how do I want to feel while working on the goal?) might be the key to setting more meaningful goals and we’re going to talk about why learning goals might serve you more than performance goals in transitional seasons!

1387

I never expected podcasting to teach me so many valuable life skills but what if you tried something new and it changed the way you interacted with the world? This week I’m sharing how podcasting has helped me grow into a more empathetic leader. Podcasting has become one of my greatest adventures, the relationships I’ve built through podcasting have challenged me to grow as a human, I’ve learned there is power behind each person’s unique story and how important listening skills are. It’s taught me the power in word choice and how shared experiences connect us. But more than anything, it’s continued to help me grow into the best version of myself and I hope today’s conversation inspires you to try that thing that maybe feels a little bit scary because at the end of the day you never know how that very thing may change your life for the better!

Articles on Emotional Labor Referenced in the Episode:


Penn State Article

“Emotional labor, like physical labor, is effortful and fatiguing when done repeatedly all day long, and can be costly in terms of performance errors and job burnout, especially when surface acting because it results in feeling inauthentic.

Research has also shown that the anxiety and fatigue from surface acting spills over to harm home life, in the form of reduced helping at home, insomnia, and increased alcohol consumption.”

Is it FACT or is it THOUGHT?
951

In today’s episode I’m flying solo and challenging you ponder an important question -- Is it fact or is it thought? I’ll dive into how the question helped me navigate some hard emotions around transitions this week, how problems and the present cannot exist together and share an exercise I learned to disrupt my headspace when I’m struggling with ‘what if’ moments that are no longer serving me. My hope is these questions, thoughts and exercises will inspire you to take action in your own life and maybe leave you feeling a little more empowered to stay the course!

We chat how Michelle made the pivot from corporate to entrepreneurship, how the pandemic shifted the entrepreneurial space, and the realities behind entrepreneurship. We dive into why website and brand design are such important investments even early on, why the aesthetic matters and the role the aesthetic plays in attracting your ideal client, plus how to find the right designer for YOU. We get an inside look at Michelle’s brand development process and learn a bit about her podcast ‘Double Shot of Branding’. As always, we tap into pivotal mindset shifts, how to disarm the imaginary success checklists and Michelle even shares one of her own ‘But, what if you DID?’ moments.

'Stop Half-Assing It!' with Jasmine Williams
3243

How often have you felt alone when navigating a hard experience? Perhaps that feeling of loneliness came in the form of a job loss, losing a loved one, a relocation, a crumbling friendship you thought would last forever? In today’s conversation I sit down with Jasmine Williams. Jasmine is a powerhouse Adversity & Resilience Speaker, who teaches audiences how failure and adversity can help them grow. Using her firsthand experiences, Jasmine helps audiences support classmates and colleagues through grief, anxiety, and other difficult life experiences.  

In Episode 57 – ‘Stop Half-Assing it!’ Jasmine shares how an unexpected layoff challenged her ability to separate her self-worth from her career and openly shares her experience normalizing the hard emotions we, as millennials, often feel pressured to sweep under the rug. We have a raw conversation about how the root of everything seemingly stems from something that happened in childhood and how your childhood ‘flaw’ may actually be the breadcrumb that helps you find your calling in life. Throughout the conversation Jasmine shares advice on building your resilience toolkit that will help you confidently navigate 100% of your worst day and shares tips for managing your energy in hard seasons. Along the way Jasmine shares a necessary affirmation you will want to keep written on a post it in your back pocket for when you need it most and how her mantra “stop half-assing it” has kept her grounded through it all!

Reminder! Everything is Temporary with Jillian Smith
2666

When we feel stuck in life, what we often need most is to move in a different direction. But transition itself can often feel challenging. To openly be able to change course is something that needs to be practiced. In our Season 1 Finale, I welcome Jillian Smith for a conversation that I’m sure will leave you feeling a little more capable to take on the hard stuff in your own life. Jillian speaks to how she overcame the challenges of being a young professional amid a pandemic, the bold but necessary risks that showed up while she was growing through the hard stuff, the mind/gut correlation as it pertains to gut health, and so much more. When she felt stagnant, the smallest actions mattered most and she's here to remind you to that even the hard stuff is only temporary!

About Jillian Smith:

Jillian Smith is a gut health dietitian with a special focus in functional medicine to uncover the root cause of every client's gut issues and get rid of unwanted symptoms for good. For Jillian, understanding digestive struggles is her thing because she's been there. For years she bounced through doctor appointments, completing lab work and other tests, just to be told that everything looked "normal".

Her mission is to instil within every client that gut symptoms are valid and 100% not normal. Jillian helps clients heal their gut and experience life symptom-free through the RIGHT testing, proper nutrition, personalised lifestyle, and supplement interventions.

 
Outline of the episode:

●      [06:11] The 'Intern' experience during the pandemic

●      [09:03] The big disconnect 

●      [13:42] At 19, do you really know what you want in life?

●      [16:18] Jillian Smith – on having  gut health challenges and her passion for the field

●      [22:30]  Why listening to your intuition is huge!

●      [26:38] How to maintain motivation during transitions

●      [29:02] It's your gratitude vs. your imposter syndrome

●      [32:05] A Three Pillar Approach to Gut Health

●      [34:43] How do you find the perfect functional medicine provider for you?   

●      [37:23] Taking actions to better yourself will always make you proud!

Finding Your Inner Stability & Cultivating a Connection with the Natural World with Alyssa Benjamin
2867

9/11 taught us how unstable our external world was. The financial crash taught us that careers are not guaranteed even if you work hard. These pivotal shifts in our external world challenged our core beliefs and has left our generation searching for answers for more than a decade. The Covid-19 pandemic taught us to pause and gave us the opportunity to do the soul growth work that was so very much needed but ignored as we wore ‘busy’ as a badge of honor. Alyssa believes many of the struggles we collectively experienced over the last year were a direct result of the forced pause and the fact that majority of people simply weren’t adequately equipped to face that level of discomfort.  

With this, Alyssa shares her personal experience with resigning from her eight-year career in the corporate world—to relate to the collective feeling. In the summer of 2018, Alyssa resigned and found herself in a pause. She was forced to sit with and confront feelings, health issues, and with questions she had long avoided. It was at that point that Alyssa started to see the connection between connecting with the natural world and how she felt. Curious whether nature could be the answer she was looking for, Alyssa felt called to start the ‘Our Nature’ podcast which is all about learning to connect back to the natural world. Life is really about pieces of calm between transitional seasons, and through her work, Alyssa teaches us to cultivate an inner stability and inner resilience that will help us to weather life’s storms with ease. 

To learn more about Alyssa's story and her upcoming ‘Homecoming’ retreat/course debuting this Fall be sure to stick around until the end of the episode!

About Alyssa Benjamin:

Alyssa Benjamin is a brand and creative strategist with a passion for building compelling strategies for brands and people who desire to foster a more sustainable, ethical, and equitable world.

She specializes in brand strategy, creative strategy, content/editorial strategy, and social media strategy.

In addition, Alyssa also writes and works as an editor for various publications.

 

Outline of the episode:

●      [03:29] 9/11 and the financial crash – how those events shaped our view of the world

●      [11:57] The "ME" generation

●      [16:09] Happiness isn't something that you get; it's something that arises

●      [25:29] Alyssa: On the questions Oprah asks at the end of every 'Super Soul Sunday' episode

●      [29:59] With a creative and curious spirit, you can connect with nature anytime, anywhere!

●      [32:59] "The profound is in the pause."

●      [34:22] How 'Our Nature' came to be.

●      [40:05] The 'Homecoming' Course: Return to nature, come home to yourself – For people who are in moments of transition

Your Energy Is Your Biggest Asset with Bridgitte Carroll
2629

Have you ever stopped to consider: “what is money?” Money is a tangible exchange for value, money is abundance and most importantly money is energy. In this episode of But, What if You did? I sit down with Bridgitte Carroll, a functional health dietitian and Business Coach. Bridgitte is a firm believer that your energy is your biggest asset and that if you're making decisions that deplete or undervalue your energy, then you challenge your ability to live abundantly. We talk about Bridgitte’s decision to leave her stable corporate job amid the pandemic and how her willingness to lean in to uncomfortable feelings in order to take risks has continuously propelled her forward during what has often felt like a messy season of life. In addition, we get a mini-lesson in understanding masculine versus feminine energy (…and why you need both), the difference coaches/mentors make, and why it is soo necessary to start before you're ready!

Ready to start living your most aligned, abundant life? Learn to go from surviving to thriving in Ep. 49 ‘Your Energy is Your Biggest Asset with Bridgitte Carroll’!

Outline of the episode:

●      [04:08] On how the pandemic silenced the noise and provided space for introspection

●      [08:23] Money is abundance and energy!

●      [11:30] Working with coaches/mentors

●      [14:40] Understanding your 'what' and 'why.'

●      [19:02] Starting before you're ready

●      [26:30] On Bridgitte's most pivotal moment

●      [32:22] Understanding masculine and feminine energies 

●      [35:25] There's more to life than just checking off boxes

2443

As a result of the pandemic, many of us are no longer working the same job or even the same industry anymore.

But, do we really have what it takes to pivot?

46 [Interview] Finding the Life Lesson in the Struggle with Lindsey Williams
2839

In this episode, Lindsey shares a recent life lesson she learned from a community she’s apart of. From speaker-author Nataly Kogan, Lindsey explains how the struggle is optional. Life will always have challenges, but we don't have to struggle with each of those challenges. It’s about how we learn to shape our thoughts in response to problems and how we choose to approach them. So many of the struggles we face are rooted in how we react to external events. There's no denying that challenges are real, but the struggle is often brought about by our own thoughts and actions. Choosing to face challenges with negative energy will only amplify the struggle.

Learn to find the lesson in your struggle in this episode of But, What If You Did? with Lindsey Williams!

 

About Lindsey Williams:

 

Lindsey Williams is the co-founder of MyUTI, a millennial mom and entrepreneur living through the messy middle of life's transitions with work, friendships, and family. She is married with two kids and resides in Atlanta.

 

Episode Highlights:

  • [06:13]It's more about who you know than what you know.
  • [09:35]Let’s talk perception!
  • [11:28]Lacking experience doesn’t mean lacking ability.
  • [14:54]Why products may fail or succeed regardless of how good they are.
  • [19:14]Why what worked for the previous generation may not work for us.
  • [22:28]The concept of struggle vs. challenge.
  • [24:32] Millennials are a transitional generation!
  • [29:38]The necessary inward reflection work were facing as a generation.
  • [35:20]Risk-averse vs. risk acceptant.
  • [43:51]Sometimes it’s about "Learning the lesson."

32 - [Interview] Dr. Lauren Cook on DECISION MAKING through those messy, uncomfortable life transitions!
2691
In, episode 32 - Interview - Dr. Lauren Cook on Decision Making Through those Messy, Uncomfortable Life Transitions. Topics include -
  • 2020 was the first time in our lives that life was happening to us rather than for us.
  • 2020 has been the ultimate waiting game - how to do the best with the day you have in front of you?
  • Is waiting the right choice for me or is waiting a form of avoidance? Is this coming from a well thought out decision or by fear of being uncomfortable?
  • Distress tolerance - getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.
  • Transferrable skills and how to sell your story. We all are capable of learning, the learning process just involves some level of discomfort.
  • Everyone starts somewhere and it's natural to not excel at first!
  • Breaking down decision making! (Lauren is launching a course on this in May! The waitlist is linked below!) You have to know what you value. Reality check - we can't ignore the logistical challenges! "Every decision has risk. Every choice has consequences. We have to know that we are resilient enough to handle whatever the consequences are." - Dr. Lauren Cook
  • "Burnout requires boundaries" - Dr. Lauren Cook
  • Put the to-do list down, put down your phone, give yourself a break even when rest feels uncomfortable.
  • What is the worst case scenario? It's often not as bad as we think it is.
  • Habits and value shifts.
  • The increased need for empathy.
  • The shift millennials are collectively experiencing. Why so many are looking for that fresh start!
  • How to use decision making to help you navigate big life transitions: Set a decision timeline and deadline. List out more than 2 options. Use the 4 square method to drill down into the pros and cons of both options!
  • Decision trap - We want so badly to be liked and not everyone will like everything we do!
  • Giving yourself permission to see something from a different perspective.
  • Reminder - "We are not our thoughts!" - Dr. Lauren Cook
 
Lauren's Bio:
Dr. Lauren Cook is a therapist, speaker, coach, and author. She helps people live what they believe and love who they are by helping them live out their values. She is the creator of the Find Your Way, Know Your Way course, which helps millennial women make efficient and effective life decisions with confidence. She is the author of two books: Name Your Story: How to Talk Openly About Mental Health and The Sunny Side Up: Celebrating Happiness. Lauren lives in Pasadena, CA with her husband and Siamese cat, Mochi.

1835

In Episode 30 - Spring Cleaning - Limiting beliefs & the stories made us who we are - I share one of my biggest limiting beliefs and dive into how you can dismantle your own limiting beliefs! Topics include -

  • A quick takeaway from my February journaling and a piece of advice on relationships!
  • Today's conversation focuses around John Sharp's teachings from 'The Insight Cure'.

  • How you can use John Sharp's 8 step process to rewrite the stories and limiting beliefs you hold true in your own life:
  1. Understanding why change is hard.
  2. Recognizing your false truth.
  3. Tracing the false truths origin.
  4. Reflecting on the old story.
  5. Working through the old story.

Quotes:
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better” Marie Forleo - 'Everything is Figureoutable'

“There is nothing passive about mindfulness. One might even say that it expresses a specific kind of passion—a passion for discerning what is subjectively real in every moment. It is a mode of cognition that is, above all, undistracted, accepting, and (ultimately) nonconceptual. Being mindful is not a matter of thinking more clearly about experience; it is the act of experiencing more clearly, including the arising of thoughts themselves. Mindfulness is a vivid awareness of whatever is appearing in one’s mind or body—thoughts, sensations, moods—without grasping at the pleasant or recoiling from the unpleasant.” - Sam Harris - 'Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality without Religion'

"All beliefs are a choice and choices can be changed." Marie Forleo - 'Everything is Figureoutable'

It's time to renew our vows, while not worrying about the how's

In the face of adversity, uncertainty, and conflicting sensory information, I hereby pledge to remain ever mindful of the magical, infinite, loving reality I live in - a reality that conspires tirelessly in my favor. I further recognize that living within space and time, as a creation amongst my creations is the ultimate adventure because thoughts become things, dreams do come true, and all things remain forever possible. As a Being of Light, I hereby resolve to live, love, and be happy at all costs, no matter what, with reverence and kindness for all. So be it! 

Your wishes are what the Universe wishes for you, and your thoughts actually steer the ship of your dreams. This is the truth! And no matter where you've been or how challenging your circumstances, right here and now is all that matters because you are forever invincible - a Being of Light on an adventure of the highest order: to have fun and be happy. 

You are powerful beyond measure." - Mike Dooley
