After more than two years and more than a hundred episodes of The Inside Story Podcast, I’ve gotten firmer in my belief that everyone has a story and that storytelling is an important piece of the human experience.
And since we started the podcast, I’ve talked to and interviewed inspiring people who openly shared their stories with us, and I’ve also thrown in a few stories of my own, plus some tips and tricks on how to get you started on your own storytelling journey.
So join me today as we rediscover the BEST of The Inside Story Podcast, and listen to snippets from the top 5 episodes:
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting the show since day 1! I appreciate you all so much and I hope you...
When I meet people who blow me away with their stories and the way they use them to shine a light for others, I’m compelled to share them with everyone in my community because we can learn so much from them.
Such is the case with Brian Bogert. Brian is a professional coach, motivational speaker, business strategist, and leader. His mission is to help individuals achieve the best version of themselves by becoming more aware and more intentional – and therefore, more authentic. His strategy -- embrace pain to avoid suffering -- has helped people create for themselves a life with no limits.
Brian has an amazing story, and I invite you to tune in today as he talks about:
Trauma often leaves one overwhelmed, sometimes unable to move forward, and often afraid of facing what caused the undesirable experience. But there’s a way of recovering from it and releasing it in order to become whole again, and that is through the healing power of storytelling.
Beth Jones is one of the women authors in the second LIGHTbeamers collaborative book, Step Into Your Brave. She is sharing her story as a trauma survivor, hoping to shine a light for others and help them start their own healing.
Join me and Beth today, as she and I talk about:
When someone goes from the hood to the White House and ultimately has multi-million dollar success, you know there’s bound to be more than a few inside stories there that will just blow your mind.
Rebecca Contreras went from hitting her lowest of lows to reaching amazing success -- the kind that so many of us also dream of. Her book, titled “Lost Girl”, details this journey and shows the reader the kind of perseverance and faith Rebecca had to get to where she is today.
Tune in to today’s episode as Rebecca and I talk about:
It’s such a special week on The Inside Story Podcast!! Our second LIGHTbeamers collaborative book, STEP INTO YOUR BRAVE, was released yesterday on Amazon!! And in a matter of a few hours, we reached #1 status, and it feels amazing to be able to share this journey with all of you.
In today’s episode, I’m putting the spotlight on my own experience writing for this book and choosing to write about my father. It’s definitely not something I thought I’d ever share publicly, much less write about in a book. But looking back now, I know that this is exactly what I was meant to do.
So tune in and sit with me as I share with you:
We’re less than a week away from the launch of our LIGHTbeamers collaborative book, Step Into Your Brave, and we’re very excited!! The female authors who are part of this book show us different faces of courage with their stories, and it’s amazing to get to know them all.
Today on the podcast, I’m bringing into the spotlight Amber Wells. Amber is an international entrepreneur, founding owner of She Companies, Inc. and a self-care journaling subscription box called Big Girl Pantees. Her journey to becoming an author has not been an easy one, which makes the release of Step Into Your Brave all the more meaningful.
Listen in on my conversation with Amber, as she and I talk about:
Today’s episode is the second in a series of interviews with the women of the LIGHTbeamers Author Program -- a special book project that’s going to shine a light on eight women and their empowering stories of courage, perseverance, and overcoming adversity.
Karen Smith spent 20 years in corporate America before she found her real calling – being an entrepreneur, coach, and energy healer. The road to where she is now was not an easy one, and she recounts how she’s had to unlearn what she had always believed and find the truth about herself.
Join me and Karen today as she shares:
A few months back, I dedicated several podcast episodes to the authors of the first collaborative book in the LIGHTbeamers series. This time, I’m featuring authors from the second book, Step Into Your Brave, which I’m very happy to announce will be coming out later this month.
One of these authors is Kim Mittelstadt – an image consultant and life coach for moms, teen girls, and young adults. She’s dedicated to helping them discover their identity and style blueprint that complements their personality and lifestyle, and teaching them to love the person in the mirror.
Tune in today as Kim and I talk about:
The 4th Annual Storytelling Symposium by LIGHTbeamers has just ended, and I’m still on a high from meeting new people, forging new relationships and deepening old ones, sharing new stories, and just soaking up all the inspiration from everyone I connected with!
And as I look back now and reflect on the amazing two days of the Symposium, I’m reminded of something that came to me more than a year ago – after I attended a mastermind event and hosted last year’s virtual Storytelling Symposium.
That is, you have to put yourself in the room.
But what do I exactly mean by that?
Here are a few things I shared last year, as we hit ‘Replay’ on Episode 033, that still ring true today:
A few episodes back, my husband Kyle was on the show and we talked about marriage and being entrepreneurs. That episode was a big hit, and a lot of you sent me messages to let me know how much that conversation resonated with you.
On today’s episode of The Inside Story Podcast, I’m bringing you another couple who are entrepreneurs and in business together. Jake and Ashley Ulkus are the founders of Destined to Scale, where they help online coaches and service-based professionals in engineering their signature offers to build a successful company without compromising client outcomes or lifestyle.
We had such a fun and enlightening conversation, so I invite you to listen in as we talk about:
