Did you know it takes about 2,700 liters of water to make just one cotton shirt? (That's about enough water for one person to drink for 2 1/2 years). Did you know that making a pair of jeans produces as much greenhouse gas as driving a car 80 miles?

Manufacturing a piece of clothing has a tremendous impact on the environment. And the average American throws 70 pounds of clothing and textiles into the trash every year. If you do the math, you'll realize just how negatively our shopaholic ways have affected the planet.

But there's good news! Tons of brands are now creating sustainable fashion, using recycled materials and foregoing animal skins like leather and fur. In today's episode, I'm sharing my top tips on how to stay fashionable and honor the environment at the same time. Because considering the planet never goes out of style.

Who were you 10 years ago? What was your life, energy and mindset like? (you'll be surprised by this answer!)

Do you remember growing up and reading those Choose Your Own Adventure books? They were a series of children's gamebooks where each story is written from a second-person point of view, with the reader assuming the role of the protagonist, and making choices that determine the main character's actions and the plot outcome. The stories were formatted so that after a few pages of reading, you'd have a few different options, which would lead to more options, and ultimately a few different endings.

As I began intentionally designing my own life, I always felt like I was in one of those books. I am well aware that I have endless options, and I am the creator of my story. We all are. In this short, but powerful episode, I'm giving you a loving kick in the butt and some major inspiration to start choosing your own adventure and living the life you know you're meant to live.

Every day, I find myself more obsessed with learning how to supercharge my health and wellness. From fitness, to mindset, to nutrition, there are so many factors that go into our overall well-being. I never paid much attention to vitamins and supplements until I met Charlotte Trass, Direction for Education for New Chapter. In this fascinating and inspiring conversation, Charlotte breaks down what we can do to ensure we feel and look our best every day.

As I've transitioned into a vegan diet, I've become more aware of not just what I put in my body, but what I put on my body. And after learning about the horrors of the leather industry, it's time for me to hang up my Chanel bags and move on to a more cruelty-free way of living and dressing. In this episode, I'm talking about the shifts I've made, some of the new designers I've been shopping, and how we can all make a difference in the world by rethinking our fashion choices. Because at the end of the day, compassion never goes out of style.

The food we put into our bodies has a profound impact on the way we feel. Now more than ever, people are waking up and becoming conscious of where our food comes from, and what it's doing to us on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. In today's episode, I'm talking all about my journey transitioning into a 100% plant-based, organic, whole foods diet. I'm sharing why I'm doing it, how it's changing my life, and how you can do the same. If you're "plant-curious" and open-minded, this episode will give you some tips on how to create a healthier lifestyle that supports your overall well-being.

I don't know about you, but I have spent a lot of time thinking about my past. Ruminating over situations where I could have done things differently, obsessing over why I didn't do things sooner, wishing I could have said something different.

And do you know where that's gotten me? Absolutely nowhere.

I love the mantra, "Control the controllable" because it reminds me that worrying about the past, or things no longer in our hands, is a waste of time.

Every single thing you do today is weaving you into the woman you want to be tomorrow. Every single thought you think is shaping your future self. Every single action you take is setting up the world around you to either support you, or sabotage you.

In this episode, we’ll talk about how to shift our energy from focusing on our past to creating our future.

Have you ever found yourself dimming your own light to keep others comfortable? Maybe you don't want to share a major win in your business because you're worried you'll come across as bragging. Maybe you're worried about turning off your colleagues by being proud of your accomplishments. Maybe you're worried about being "too happy" or "too successful" because you think someone else may be annoyed by it?

Whatever the case - it needs to end. When we dim our own light, we send a message that women should not take up space. When we shrink ourselves, we send a message that being confident is something to be ashamed of.

It's time to celebrate our success! It's time to acknowledge how far we've come. This episode will tell you WHY it's so important and HOW to do it.

What happens when our dreams come true and we don't recognize them? In this episode, I'm sharing the importance of visualizing success as a woman in business, and also being open to changing that vision at any time, for any reason. Our best work comes from feeling our best, and we can't get there if we're clinging to old ideals and never checking in with ourselves. What's important to you right now? What do you value? What kind of woman do you want to be? How do you want to feel? We'll dig into all of these questions and more in this juicy episode.

I want you to ask yourself this question honestly: am I more focused on building a business, or building my social media following? Highly successful business women aren't concerned with likes, followers, or little blue check marks. They aren't concerned with how famous or loved they appear on the internet. They're concerned with making an impact and making money. In this episode, I'm sharing some real talk about what it takes to shift from Instagrammer to business woman and how to become intentional about your time.
