Episode 57: Technology & Human Connection: 5 Simple Ways to cultivate relationships
The need to be perfect is holding you back. All the stories we tell ourselves that our work or our life has to be perfect before we can get started or move forward, holds us back and stress us out from fully experiencing life. What would happen if you dared yourself to do it anyway? To do it, whatever your it is, even if it meant it wasn’t perfect?
Perfectionism masks itself in accomplishments but it’s really about not wanting to fail.
Let go of perfect and strive for adaptability instead.

Episode 51: What Grief Teaches You About Life
Are you telling yourself a story about why you haven't reached your goal? Maybe it's because you don't have the time, the money or because you're needed elsewhere. I told myself the same thing for years, until I shut down my excuses and started.
This is EPISODE 52, our first anniversary and I am sharing all the ways my life changed in one year. No sugar coating, no BS, just honesty about the lessons I've learned, the emotions I felt and why I know YOU can change your life, too.
If you think one year is a long time, remember this: "The days are long, but the years are short."
Have you ever lost hope? Chelsea Dinsmore was hours away from reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro when her entire life changed.
No one would have blamed her if she stayed in bed for months. Experts, books and friends all told her to give herself a year to heal. If you have experienced loss or death, grief can consume you. Chelsea practiced mindfulness as she grieved, always examining her thoughts before reacting. Over the next year, she traveled the world - alone - and she designed a life based how she wanted to feel.
