Episode 42: Marina Chupac

Joining me today is Marina, a lawyer, a yogi, a self professed hippie as well as a skateboarder. She and her partner partnered up to create Zupac Law. Marina talks about what she wants to do with both yoga and the law practice together. The law firm is upstairs and the yoga studio is down stairs and not only do they offer regular yoga classes, but they host events as well in the space. In addition to that they have a mobile law office and they go out into the community to help people and work to demystify the work they do. Marina has a practice of manifesting not only her clients, but also the supporting staff that she works with.

Episode 39: Kindra Hall

Kindra and I had so much fun talking about stories together. She shared how telling stories became such a big part of her life. She wanted to venture out to create her own company and not knowing what that might look like, she explained how she got her first speaking engagement and how she decided that would be what she would build her business around. After all of her speaking opportunities, she wanted to be able to share her knowledge of the power of stories with a wider audience and that led her to write her book, Stories that Stick.

Episode 33: A badass birthday message

Due to scheduling issues May’s Topic Talk will be on hiatus. There is a whole lot going on for all of us right now. It’s my birthday Sunday and I have decided to talk about something I feel very strongly about. A woman’s right to choose, what to do with her body, her life and making sure that the war on women doesn’t take away our rights to our own bodies and lives. Be advised there are plenty of salty words in this one. I love a good salty word, because they are just words after all. You don’t have to believe what I believe and I hope that you will consider what I have to say and do your thinking and researching what’s going on. I’m a fighter, I will always fight for what I believe most in. You have the choice to listen to this or not, that’s the thing about choice.


Episode 32: Leigh Coates

This was quite an interview! It took some work to get it scheduled but I never gave up because I so wanted to have this conversation and share her amazing story. She took flying lessons at 15, quite flying to become a pro snowboarder, went back to flying after an injury and went from flying small planes to helicopters and also teaching others to fly. She now owns her own helicopter business in Alaska and takes the winters to travel the US and practice yoga along the way. The big thing now is that she is the first female jet pack pilot. Her story is so inspiring and I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did having the conversation. As always, thank you for listening!

April Topic Talk

A great conversation with Jenna, Bentley and Sherry as they share their experiences with anger and fear. We talk about women and the societal pressure to not express our anger, or emotions while in a business setting, or most any other public setting. How many of us internalize and repress our anger, fear and so many other emotions and how we can learn from that and find paths to be better for ourselves and to ourselves.

I mention a couple of books in the episode, one exclusive to Audible and one available anywhere you buy books as well as on audible. I am finding that Audible really helps me to stay focused and I can listen on the road, while walking etc.

Laura joins Sherry to talk about her life on the road living in a vintage airstream and how that led her to creating her company, Vacilando Quilting. She and her husband have been living on the road for 6 years and have seen a lot of changes over the years with the campsites and roads filled with more people living the same style of life.

Laura also speaks about teaching herself to quilt, dealing with insecurities around her knowledge and experience and how she has moved beyond those to writing her first book for beginning quilters. She also speaks about trying to keep creativity fueled and stay fresh and excited about her work.
