Turning 40 last year was a powerful moment in my life. And I knew in the months leading up to it that I was going to own my age, fully embrace my power, and walk into the next half of my life as the absolute best, most badass version of myself. I discovered Star Monroe, coach and creator of The Midlife Revolution, and instantly knew this woman would become a mentor to me. She is bold, unapologetic, and truly a queen in her own right, and I'm thrilled to bring her to you today on the show. In this episode, we'll talk about what it looks like to totally own who you are, redefine sexuality beauty as we approach our older years, and rock the f*ck out of your life.

So many women are going through divorce, but so few are actually talking about it. Although women are more empowered than ever, it seems as though the topic of divorce has become somewhat taboo, especially in this world of heavily filtered, Instagram-perfect relationships and families. In today's episode, I'm chatting with award-winning divorce attorney, published author, and founder of the Connecticut family law firm, Bauer Law Group. With almost two decades of experience, Renée is committed to empowering all women to redefine their sense of peace and purpose in their new life. Renée’s insights are sought after by local and regional media outlets, podcasts, and conferences where she speaks on co-parenting, blended family dynamics, relationships, and the art of reinvention. She is host of the Happy Even After Podcast and creator of the d-course, teaching women how to get through their divorce with their sanity intact so they can find their own version of Happy Even After. She's also been divorced twice herself, so Renee brings a personal spin to the topic along with her professional experience. You're going to love this one.

I love to set my intentions at the top of each month. It helps me stay focused and in alignment with whatever I want to bring to fruition for myself. Intentions are different than goals. In fact, I much prefer setting intentions because they allow me to stay in a high vibe without attaching myself to a specific outcome. For me, a goal can limit me and cause me to think there's just one to do something. Whereas an intention reminds me of how I want to feel, rather than what I want to achieve. And it leaves room for the universe to do it's magic! In today's episode, I'm sharing 5 tips for setting powerful intentions so that you can call more abundance, creativity, joy, and FLOW into your life. Enjoy!

Today I'm bringing you an encore episode that I feel really strongly about sharing again. It's my conversation with my friend and peer, Amanda Frances. Amanda is my most-frequent guest, I've never had anyone on the show 3 times before, so this is a big deal. She is a self-made multi-millionaire, thought leader, business coach, self-proclaimed "money queen" - and most importantly, a good friend of mine who I respect and admire very much.

I decided to share this episode again because I feel like now more than ever, we are in a time where people are looking at their lives — and at whether their relationship with money and the dynamics at play in their finances do or don’t serve them, feel good to them, or work for them.

As women on a mission to change the world, our energy and overall wellness should be our priority. I don't know about you, but if I don't feel good, I can't accomplish everything I am determined to accomplish. I've been on a quest to improve my health over the past few years, learning everything I possibly can along the way. That's why I'm so thrilled for today's episode. I sat down with Charlotte Traas, director of education for New Chapter vitamins and supplements to talk all things gut health. You guys know my favorite mantra, "Trust your gut. That b*tch knows what's up!" In today's chat, we're going to talk about why your gut truly does know what's up, and why the right supplements can support you to be the best possible version of yourself.

I like to say I see the world through rosé colored glasses. I make it a point to choose optimistic, positive, blissful thoughts, which create an optimistic, positive, blissful reality. The first step to making any real change in our lives and our businesses is to change our energy. Our energy, or vibration, is the frequency we put out into the world that determines the quality of our experiences. Getting in a high vibe is the quickest way to supercharge your soul and skyrocket your success. We cannot create quality content from a low vibration. In this episode, I will help you identify what is, and what is not serving you, raise your frequency, and create your energetic outline for your success.
