Preparing to Succeed

272: Preparing to Succeed

Trying to make a significant change in your life without doing a little prep work (carving out time, making a plan, putting forethought into obstacles that may arise) often makes all the difference between success and failure.

Yes, prep takes time.
No, prep is not fun and exciting.


Prep makes success so much more likely.

Which is why I chose “Preparing to Succeed” as this week’s podcast topic.

Healing and Fortifying the Face Naturally w/ Andrea Fairborn

271: Healing & Fortifying the Face Naturally w/ Andrea Fairborn

There are so many options available when it comes to skincare these days, especially when it comes to treatments for the face. And while we are hearing plenty about treatments like botox, fillers and plastic surgery, we are not hearing enough about the natural treatments available.

To help fill that gap, I have invited my friend and facialist extraordinaire, Andrea Fairborn to the Grace & Grit podcast to share with us some very powerful and alternative therapies for honoring the health of your face. We don’t just address skin care in this interview, we also discuss ways to condition the muscles of the face, and how practices like reflexology and even nutrition can help support the health of the face.

Irene Lyon

270: Smart Body Smart Mind w/ Irene Lyon

I have had Irene Lyon on the Grace & Grit podcast more than any other guest EVER.


Because her work has influenced my life and the life of so many of my students in powerful ways.

She has a gift for helping people tune into the body, listen to its wisdom, and then respond in ways that serve our wellbeing rather than destroy it.

The doors for Irene’s 12-week program, Smart Body Smart Mind opens later this month and in this episode, I share my own experience in the program with the hopes that it will give others the courage to take the leap to register as well.

Facing the Truth of Your Life

268: Facing the Truth of Your Life

Who you are currently being in the world is a culmination of the things you have practiced so many times you have quite literally become those things.

Clients will often say, “that’s just the way I am” as if they are bound to that way of being forever.

Not true!

If your practices to this point in your life shaped your current state of being, new practices can develop you into a new state.

To develop new practices, however, you are going to have to face the truth of your current practices (minus the blame, shame, and judgment).

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I am sharing a few tips and tricks on how to do just that.

The Gifts of Sobriety w/ Veronica Valli

267: The Gifts of Sobriety w/ Veronica Valli

I talk a lot in my work about the concept of Buffering, which is when we try to change our emotional landscape with something outside of us.

We feel lonely so we eat.
We feel bored so we scroll social media.
We are stressed or uncomfortable so we drink.

The problem with buffering is two-fold:
It distracts us from the truth of our life.
It has long-term consequences.

Buffering with alcohol has some unique consequences I believe for the perimenopausal and menopausal populations, which is the age group I primarily work with.

So I could not be more thrilled to be hosting Veronica Valli on the podcast.

Veronica Valli is changing the narrative on sobriety. With 21 years of sobriety and 19 years of experience as a recovery coach and psychotherapist, she understands that there is no ONE path to sobriety.

I adore Veronica, her message, and her mission and I am excited for you to tune into this conversation that we recently had.
