This episode has pretty much everything you could want out of a podcast: it’s natural, hilarious, interesting, fun, and with just a little bit of poop. That’s because Krista + Lindsey got to sit down with Suzy Batiz, creator of Poo-Pourri.

 

After her second bankruptcy at 40, Suzy embarked on a spiritual quest and discovered the lost art of tapping the body for stored creativity and ideas. She grew Poo-Pourri into a $300M+ business using a combination of somatic training, quantum physics, and interpersonal evolutionary processes, which she’s dubbed the Radical Resonance System.

 

We definitely spend some time talking about the product and what it’s like to be a female founder, but things get a lot deeper than that – there’s even an absolutely incredible ghost story that Lindsey + Krista can not stop sharing at parties!

 

And if you’ll be near Dallas on Tuesday, September 25th, you can catch Lindsey, Krista, and Suzy LIVE! Click here to get your tickets now!!

 

This episode includes…

  • Healing the wounds of an abusive and tumultuous childhood
  • Finding the light to physical and spiritual wellness

Almost 30 is all about tools, tricks, and insights that anyone can use to feel happier and more aligned as they navigate the big transitions in their life… but we’ve never really talked about WHY people feel happy. Like what’s going in these mammal brains of ours? So Lindsey + Krista sat down with Loretta Breuning, PhD, a professor, an author, and the Founder of The Inner Mammal Institute. Loretta teaches people how to build power over their mammalian brain chemistry and understand nature’s operating system.

 

Because if we understand the science of what’s happening when we form habits or feel a certain way, we have the power to manipulate those chemicals, rewire our brains, and ultimately, live a better life. Are you ready to make peace with your inner mammal?

 

We discuss…

 

  • Early brain development
  • Why it’s so difficult to create new neural pathways in our brains after puberty
  • Our impulse to want more
  • Serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, & endorphin
  • The medical model VS the animal world
  • Ups + downs being NORMAL
  • Do animals have memories like we do?
  • Why the size of your brain directly correlates to the length of childhood (and the animal with the biggest brain)
  • The amazing miracle of reproduction
  • Breaking an addictive habit
  • Getting back to neutral after experiencing trauma
  • Endorphins + GABA
  • Every single person being wired for an individual experience (and feeling a little different from the herd)

Krista + Lindsey have been dying to talk about dreams forever, so they put the call out there and manifested the lovely Connie Kaplan. Connie is a spiritual mentor who teaches dreaming as a spiritual practice and a unique form of theology, which centers around an understanding of each person’s life purpose.

 

Connie found her calling after contracting a mysterious virus and spending nearly two years of her life in bed. She slept, and she slept and slept and slept, and she experienced a profound spiritual transformation which altered not only her inner experience of life but her outer expression of life.

 

We kind of pass dreams off as being silly, crazy, or dumb, but they have a deep meaning and purpose. We spend half of our lives in this unconscious state – there’s so much happening and so much to be learned, if we choose to take control of it and use it as a method to transform. This conversation gets a little out there, but you know us! We talk about…

 

  • The illness that changed Connie’s life
  • How the moon affects our dreams + tracking your dreams according to the lunar cycle
  • Everyone’s unique dreaming pattern
  • Dreaming to heal
  • Collective dreams about 9/11
  • How dreams allow our subconscious minds to communicate with the collective energies
  • Heather’s dream pillow
  • The 13 different types of dreams
  • Menstruation + dreams
  • The unique chakra system that Connie received as a download
  • Doing the subconscious work
  • Jungian vs Freudian analysis
  • Using a dream journal

We talk about…

 

  • The tragic origin story of LIVIN

Jill Willard is an intuitive medium + meditation leader who helps people tune into their intuition and live in the now, gifts that allow anyone to feel more balanced and present. Jill blew us away with the wisdom in her book, Intuitive Being, and now she’s offering tools and tips on meditation and being here in presence through IM, a heart-based and intuitively-focused meditative company.

 

Sitting down with Jill was an incredible experience for the us.  Whenever you’re around a healer, an intuitive being, or someone else on a really high-vibrational level, your energy is affected – and spending time with Jill is like 10x’ing your energy!! It was honestly like the we were wrapped up in angel food energy: stuck, sticky, sweet, comfortable, and covered in clouds.

 

And afterwards, it’s hard to describe how we felt... except to say that weare changed!

 

We chat about…

 

  • Connecting with your intuition
  • Growing up as a psychic + Hearing voices as a child
  • Getting clear on the relationship you want with yourself, as an intuitive
  • Connecting with angels and spirit guides
  • Our culture’s misunderstanding of sexuality
  • The afterlife
  • Manifesting a broken ankle
  • Motherhood + rebirthing
  • The power of our relationships with parents and family
  • Healing yourself
  • Our chakras
  • Jill’s thoughts on dreams + the different types of dreams (make sense of your dreams at dreammoods.com)
  • Why self-care needs to be simple
  • Why Jill created IM
  • Transitioning to 30
  • Listening to + trusting your body

As we approach (and pass) 30, a lot of us are thinking about our plans for conceiving – and, unfortunately, many of us are or will experience fertility issues! Most women assume that they’re fertile and can have a baby tomorrow, if they want to, but until you try to get pregnant or see a fertility expert, you just don't know.

 

We want our listeners to be fully informed, PERIOD. So we dive into a topic that we believe is not being talked about enough—Fertility! The truths, the myths, and the incredible new options available due to advances in In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) procedures – and that’s why we sat down with our dear friend, Dr. Robert Anderson, a Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist & Founder of the Southern California Center for Reproductive Medicine.

 

Dr. Anderson is an innovator in the field, running one of the top fertility clinics in the world, and he takes us deep into the process, including the physical, emotional, and financial commitments involved.

 

We discuss…

 

  • Our first attempt at recording this interview (over two years ago…)
  • Founding SoCal Center for Reproductive Medicine 25 years ago
  • People traveling from all over the world for fertility treatment with Dr, Anderson
  • How much IVF has improved
  • What a healthy embryo is
  • Why you may want to freeze your eggs
  • Egg donors + surrogates
  • What both parts of the IVF procedure is like
  • The multiple pregnancy problem of yesterday
  • Choosing gender
  • The new procedure that Dr. Anderson invented
  • Why you should consider getting your eggs tested
  • Dr. Anderson’s kind + direct bedside manner
  • How the industry markets IVF unrealistically + setting realistic expectations
  • The emotional + financial aspects of IVF
  • Restoring your hormonal environment
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Holistic treatments that Dr. Anderson offers
  • Genetic testing + treatment for diseases
  • The promising future of CRISPR
  • Testing + improving male fertility
  • Accessibility for LGBTQ communities

On today’s episode, Krista and Lindsey are SO excited to introduce Manisha Thakor- the founder and CEO of MoneyZen Wealth Management and a "Wall Street Journal" expert panelist. She has an MBA from Harvard and possesses a wealth of experience in all things finance.  She is regularly in the "New York Times" + "More Magazine" and on CNN + "The Today Show.” The conversation is empowering and eye-opening.  The girls also open up about where they are personally struggling in their relationship with money. After all, they can’t be alone!

 

They discuss...

 

  • How this generation is the first to be dealing with unprecedented levels of student debt, and that this financial stress takes up MAJOR mental space and serves as a real distraction.
  • Women and their changing relationship with finances- becoming primary breadwinners and stepping into our POWER.
  • Women wanting to use their money to make a stand. For women, it’s not about how much we make, but about how we can make an impact with our finances while still being smart and receiving financial return.
  • Tips for getting people on the front end of the funnel before even getting into student loan debt! Moreover, ways to climb out of debt once you’re already in the thick of it.
  • Pursuing certain career paths where you can get loan forgiveness after you have gone through a certain number of years of teaching school in certain kinds of neighborhoods or doing more community oriented work.
  • Manisha’s definition of what it means to possess financial strength.
  • Approachable and salient definitions + metaphors for understanding financial terms that may intimidate those of us not in the know. Alternatively, “Male Speak” in finance.
  • Shutting down your femininity or silencing yourself in “business” or “finance” settings to blend in and be more accepted- and the ways in which “me too” is changing this coping mechanism/default behavior!
  • Manisha’s recommendation to read The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey.
  • How the third person in a committed romantic partnership is MONEY. So getting right with that part of your life will help your relationships become infinitely more cohesive!

In today’s episode, we talk to TWO amazing ladies in the clean home + beauty products space. Allison Evans, of Branch Basics, talks to us all about her journey leading up to partnering up with her aunt (Marilee) and best friend (Kelly) to form Branch Basics, which sells a multi-purpose Concentrate to make cleaning simple, affordable and sustainable. All their products are refillable and can be used for ANY cleaning job. The Concentrate is significantly less expensive than similar single-use products. Annie Jackson, acting COO of Credo Beauty, shares her wide-ranging knowledge about the beauty industry (both conventional and natural). Between Credo’s brands, the leadership, and their consumers, there is a common thread: transparency. Credo promises INTEGRITY. They will never carry products with known harmful ingredients and they only stock brands that never test on animals. Both Allison and Annie share SO much amazing information on why you should buy CLEAN and vote with your dollar.

  • How much perseverance + trial and error went into coming up with the PERFECT all purpose cleaner.
  • That many conventional household cleaners actually utilize harmful (+ unlisted) ingredients (i.e. pesticides).
  • The importance of educating the masses on why they ought to purchase safer cleaning products. The keys to a healthier life are AWARENESS + BRAND TRANSPARENCY.
  • Annie Jackson’s employment history in the beauty industry, beginning with Estée Lauder + Sephora!
  • Annie’s transition out of conventional beauty and into cleaner beauty options.
  • The challenge of getting consumers to ditch their beloved skincare products for the ones you’re selling (even if yours ARE cleaner, safer, + better).
  • Misconceptions about natural, safe beauty products.
  • How Credo Beauty hires estheticians and make up artists to work in house and assist clients personally.
