My guest today is Tallia Deljou. She is a positive psychology expert and transformational life coach helping people connect their power and purpose.

•On Pandemic: every moment presents an opportunity to practice something

 

3 Key Points

EP74: Jeanine Wright Interview: How To Launch and Grow Your Podcast with COO of Simplecast

Listen to EP74: Jeanine Wright Interview: How To Launch and Grow Your Podcast with COO of Simplecast

Host Allison Hare sits down with the Chief Operating Officer, Lawyer, and one of the first investors of her favorite podcast platform, Simplecast, none other than Jeanine Wright. 

 

(If you are a podcaster and podcast want to be, hear what she has to say about Simplecast, a platform you might use.)

 

This makes Jeanine Wright a great trifecta of an image of an empowered woman in the industry of tech or tech investments. Given that there's not so much attention and investment is given to women. In Silicon Valley, only 2% of women are being invested. 

 

But how did Simplecast started?

 

Jeanine will share her story from being a talent-side entertainment and media attorney half a dozen years to being an angel investor in tech and eventually meeting the CEO of Simplecast, Brad.

Listen to EP73: Intimidated by Dance? This New Format is  Taking Over the Nation: Meet the Co-Founders of Reb3l Fitness

Do you have two left feet?

Do you find the thought of learning a new dance pretty intimidating?

I sure did.  So you’ve seen those dance videos I’ve posted, right? 

Would you believe that the creators of the Reb3l format had ZERO dance or fitness background when they started?

I got a chance to interview 2 of the 3 co-founders of the innovative Reb3l Fitness concept, Ashleigh Hughes and Tricia Cremeans and boy was I blown away with how relatable their stories are - and impressed by how they organically skyrocketed the Reb3l community throughout the nation both in studios and on-demand at home.

What we’ll learn about their stories are:

  1. You will see yourself in their relatable yet extraordinary stories
  2. Finding a sense of purpose
  3. Unlocking your own sense of possibility through movement
  4. Building a business out of your passions
  5. Having a mom’s me-time, being fit and happy can and should be a lifestyle

EP72: Maximizing Meaning by Minimizing: Minimalist Colin Wright

Listen to EP72: Maximizing Meaning by Minimizing: Minimalist Colin Wright

As COVID grounds us all at home and limits our ability to travel, have you taken a pause to REALLY re-evaluate your lifestyle and ask yourself...what would better look like?

Host Allison Hare talks to Colin Wright, an author, international speaker,  podcaster, and featured on the popular Netflix documentary, Minimalism.

Colin has been traveling the world since 2009 and has visited more than 60 countries and over moving from one country to another every four months! 

Colin shares how he has been keeping up with his travels by living a minimalist lifestyle for 10 years. He surrendered his luxe city life in Los Angeles to travel the world and work as a freelancer. Today he shares how he has seen the world from a different perspective and shares with us how he is happier than ever by creating more space that matters. 

Episode Highlights:

  • How Colin Wright transitioned from corporate life to become a digital nomad 10 years ago. 
  • He shares how he was privileged in a certain way and how he can give back to the community wherever he was. 
  • How does his family see him? Does he feel normal?
  • Colin explains how living the life of equilibrium and outside your comfort zone kept him learning. 
  • What does he do, and how does he do it?
  • Maintaining relationships with having no permanent address. 
  • What is important to him?
  • Best practices of different countries that Colin thinks we should know.
  • After 60 countries, where does he want to go next?

3 Key Points

  1. Minimalism is freeing things to have the luxury of time. 
  2. Success and happiness are measured on your specific metrics. 
  3. Be comfortable living uncomfortably. 

Tweetable Quotes:

  • Colin Wright goes against the norm "I should step away from this thing that is good according to certain metrics of success."
  • Colin Wright on minimalism, "Minimalism is just a means of freeing up time, energy and resources to spend on the more important things."
  • Colin Wright, on minimalist people, "It's not a religion or a cult. You're trying to adapt. You are focusing your money and time more intentionally".

EP71: Top Mistakes New Podcasters Make and How To Avoid Them

Listen to EP71: Top Mistakes New Podcasters Make and How To Avoid Them

Starting a podcast can feel overwhelming.  You’re probably thinking is the market oversaturated? Will my podcast even make a dent? There’s probably a little imposter syndrome creeping in thinking, who am I to throw my hat in the ring?

There are about 1.2 Million podcasts out there but only about 50% of them are considered active.*** 

Why is that?  

I actually feel like these statistics are encouraging for a few reasons. A lot of people throw podcasts out there without giving a few key areas some much needed consideration. I promise you - these mistakes are why there are so many shows in the podcast graveyard.

But not yours!  This is your passion.  Your voice.  Your message.  Your stories.  You are going to make it great!  

Please listen, comment, share.

Listen to EP69: 9 Tips To Nailing Your Podcast Interview

So much goes into a GREAT interview.  And it truly is an art and interviewing is an important life skill that can cross into every area of your life.  This requires sharpening your own emotional intelligence in the process.  There’s no such thing as a perfect interviewer.  The best news is that you are always continuously evolving and improving.  

As someone who interviews people not only for this podcast but also unsuspecting strangers by nature, I’ve noticed some cardinal mistakes people make that instantly turn the listener off when I listen to other podcasts - and also some small tweaks that can make your podcast interview so irresistible that your listeners will be posting it, sharing it, and sending it to all their friends.

I break down 9 Tips to Nail Your Podcast Interview.

EP68: BLM Series: Courageous Leadership and Boldly Challenging the Status Quo for Progress: Yendelela Neely Holston

Listen to EP68: BLM Series: Courageous Leadership and Boldly Challenging the Status Quo for Progress: Yendelela Neely Holston

Host Allison Hare talks to Yendelela Neely Holston, a Cum Laude graduate of Duke University School of Law and the Partner and Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton. Yendelela Neely Holston talks about her open letter responding to OK Cafe owner Susan DeRose’s stance on Black Lives Matter. OK Cafe is a 50-year-old Atlanta institution, along with Blue Ridge Grill and Bone’s Steakhouse. During a peaceful Black Lives Matter march that was going past OK Cafe, a few weeks ago in response, there was a huge banner that stated, ‘Lives That Matter Are Made With Positive Purpose. The backlash to the owners putting up this cryptic banner was immediate. 

Episode Highlights:

  • Allison Hare introduces Yendelela Neely Holston. 
  • Allison started a course called Press Play Podcast.  
  • What prompted Yendelela Neely Holston to write her letter? 
  • What has the response been like to her letter? 
  • What is her call to action for people that are going to continue to stand up for black lives? 
  • Has there been a shift towards radical empathy?
  • Why are people fighting so hard for the status quo?
  • Why did Yendelela Neely Holston get involved in a career in law? 
  • What is her ultimate goal as a diversity officer?  
  • What does she know that she wishes other people knew?   
  • What is next for Yendelela Neely Holston?
  • How does she feel after having written her letter? 

3 Key Points

  1. Anti-racism is the key to confront racism. 
  2. People don’t have to be white to be racist. Perpetuating racism makes someone racist. 
  3. Yendelela Neely Holston started a pipeline program for law school readiness for historically underrepresented individuals on two coasts with two of her firm's largest clients. 

Tweetable Quotes:

  • “Not doing something that is overtly racist is not enough, because we all function and live within a racist society. So, doing nothing, you are perpetuating racism. Period. Unless you are actively working against it, you are perpetuating it.” –Yendelela Neely Holston
  • “I think that’s how we continue to not address things over history is that we reframe them in ways that are convenient and minimize what the real issue is.” –Yendelela Neely Holston
  • (Systemic racism) “It is not a lack of intellectual horsepower. It is not a lack of ability. It is because you're just spending so much time how this works. You don’t have a cousin or an uncle or family friend to call and help navigate through.” –Yendelela Neely Holston

Have you been thinking if you should start a podcast but juuuuuust need a little confirmation that this is the right move? I've got you covered. Thanks to technology, everyone has a voice and a platform. We are all our own media companies these days. The question is - which voices do you personally amplify? It’s an important question and one that requires agency and intention on your part.

And what about your voice? Sometimes the best advice you can get is to get out of your own head - and think of WHO IT'S FOR!

So this episode will have 3 very important parts:

  1. I’m going to tell you the story about interviewing the great Seth Godin which I did last week. It was something else!
  2. I have a lot of people asking me about podcasting. And as you may know, I run an interactive step-by-step podcast course called Press Play Podcasts that begins on July 6th. So if podcasting is something that you’ve considered - or are even thinking about how to make an impact with your own life but not sure why, you will really enjoy it.
  3. I invited Press Play Podcasts alumni Megan Armstrong, the host of the wildly popular podcast 6 Feet Above to talk about her podcasting experience. What’s so interesting about her is that she already had 1 season of her podcast published and THEN chose to take my Press Play Podcasts course so we will dig into that.

How often do you consider metaphysical explanations when the world seems upside down?

In this time, when the world seems to be spinning off its axis and all the life maps have mysteriously been thrown out, I thought it was a good time to revisit this conversation with Kelley Knight, the magnetic CEO and founder of wildly successful Modern Mystic Shop.

Host Allison Hare talks to Kelley Knight, CEO, Founder, and Owner of Modern Mystic Shop, a female-founded resource for intentionally made, small-batch metaphysical goods and services in Atlanta, Georgia. Kelley Knight talks about what brought her into embracing her spiritual journey, integrating her spiritual life and her business life, ways to elevate as a society, and what it means that we are now entering into the Aquarian Age.

Episode Highlights:

  • Allison Hare introduces Kelley Knight.
  • Kelley Knight explains who she is and how she got where she is today.
  • How did her marketing ideas come to her?
  • How did you start Modern Mystic?
  • Kelley talks about entering the Aquarian Age.
  • Allison Hare talks about a highly successful reading she had with Kelley Knight.
  • Kelley discusses normalizing spirituality and balancing that with business.
  • Who does her dad represent in her psyche?
  • What does it take to be open to a spiritual transition?
  • Many millennials are going to spiritual readers as opposed to therapists.
  • How has her business changed and grown?
  • How does she remain generous with her time and productive at the same time?
  • What does the world need right now?
  • What are her current goals?
  • Kelley Knight talks about how her mind works with making connections and her book “Spells for the Modern Mystic”: A Ritual Guidebook and Spell-Casting Kit.
  • What is next for her and how can people reach out for her services?
  • Kelley discusses how the impact and expansion have been for Modern Mystic.

3 Key Points

  1. First healing and then honing are the steps that led Kelley Knight to strengthening her intuition abilities.
  2. Normalizing spirituality takes discernment, self-regulation, and analyzing the ways we have associated spirituality with religion in the past.
  3. Kelley’s big spiritual awakening happened in 2012 when she began seeing dead people and the Aquarian Age began.

Tweetable Quotes:

  • “I believe that the best way that I can be impactful is to fill a space, to scan the horizon and see where there is a need that my gifts and talents align with and fill that need, as opposed to creating something and making people come to you.” –Kelley Knight
  • “I think that’s why I’m a good tarot reader is because I can see all of the cards and all of the pieces laid out and then it clicks in very quickly how they all work together, and that is how my mind is working with marketing too.” –Kelley Knight
  • “Everyone has their own Spidey sense or super sense, right? So, the more that we normalize it and we make it not special, the more that people are going to use it, and the more that we can use it to work together and be together.” –Kelley Knight
