You guys, the girls are still recovering from this one.  This week they have a murder mystery on their hands (how frickin' dramatic is that!?).  But first, Krista and Lindsey share their "HUNDRED/NOT HUNDRED" of the week.  Two weeks post election, and the girls are able to articulate their emotional response to the election outcome.  This is unedited.  STAY WOKE FAM.  CHASE THE DARK WITH BRIGHT LIGHT.  Speaking of bright light...It's an uber driver (again) and a fitness instructor that fill 'em up.  Prepare for a full blown profession of love on air.  And, uh, Lindsey's Uber Driver is friends with a raccoon.  UBER ROCKS.
 
FINALLY, WHAT WE ALL HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.  A listener calls in with a crazy story, followed by a "what the heck should I do"?  Sorry, can't ruin this one.  Let's just say the girls never thought dating on an app could be so darn KOOKY and LAW & ORDER-esque.  This story is not to be missed.

ATTN: All bosses, dreamers, goal-chasers, entrepreneurs, small business owners, millennials and anyone who wants to get paid for doing what they love...
We've got a treat for you.
 
Today's special BONUS episode is an interview with the amazing CEO and brains behind The Style Collective--an online community that helps lady entrepreneurs and influencers grow their following and reach long term goals.
 
Annie left her corporate job where she was bullied by her evil manager, and pursued a calling in influencer marketing. 
 
She created a full blown dream business by listening to the market, responding to it, thinking strategically, and being HERSELF.  She is a loving, smart, creative business woman with a knack for self-made opportunities.
 
If you want to do your own thing, branch out, create a brand, become a blogger, star a business, this one is FOR YOU.
 
In this episode we discuss:
  • The challenges that changed her life
  • The end of her corporate career (which involved an emotionally abusive boss who bullied her constantly)
  • How to find your mission, while still working hard at your goals
  • The blog bubble, and helping women become entrepreneurs through their blog
  • How to be successful working from home
  • How you can make money from your blog
  • COMPARISON, what we do about it, who we compare ourselves to, and how it's the true thief of joy
  • What a jar of awesome is, and why you need it
  • Why less planning and more doing is sometimes the key

Cleavage, man.  Too much is always enough.  And not enough, always has intention.  In the candid opening of this weeks Almost 30, Krista and Lindsey reflect on their cleavage practices back in the day and how it serves them now.  

 

It's been way too long since the girls have shared their "20's Us, 30's Us".  Halloween gave Krista some serious inspiration.  Hey ladies, still have that 'slutty inmate' costume in a plastic bin under your bed just in case?  Fella's, admit it, how confused/disturbed were you by girls' attempts at 'sexy grandma'.  Krista reflects on Halloween past and present.  The two are alarmingly/thankfully very different.  Lindsey remembers her late night eating habits in her early 20's...Turkey and Eggo Waffles anyone?  She talks about her current commitment to a more mindful relationship with food. 

 

This week the girls call a listener from Utah!  UTAH!  Ali's question about the law of attraction develops into a full blown discussion about manifestation, cultivating your tribe, and how you are the average of the five people you spend most of your time with.  

 

This episode is like an EVERYTHING BAGEL.  You can't not love something about it.  *double negative, sorry English teachers of past*.

We'd like to interrupt this week's show notes with a quick disclaimer regarding the first 8 minutes of this episode:  The sound is gently distorted by the sweet aliens that were helping to connect Le sweat in NYC to Almost 30 in LA. Feel free to skip over the part where Lindsey messaged some guy on Instagram because he had beautiful succulents.  THEY WERE BEAUTIFUL, OKAY!?  Around, the 8 minute mark, all is right in the world.  

 

This week Almost 30 welcomes the ladies behind Le Sweat, a fresh online publication that shakes up the idea of 'working out'.  Charlee Atkins, an uber popular SoulCycle Instructor and fitness model, and Meridith Miller, a lady boss of partnerships at Twitter, are exploring their own idea of "working on working out".  The physical sweat is just the beginning.  The ladies talk 'inner-cising', being alone (not lonely), social media, knowing thyself after the end of a long-term relationship, why everyone should take a friend-moon, their popular articles filed under "Stroke His Ego", and how Charlee and Meredith are already OWNING their 30's.  This one is candid and inspiring.  After you listen, check out www.le-sweat.com!

The girls have a very candid conversation about rejection.  Krista shares what it was like auditioning for SoulCycle, what she learned, how she was redirected, and how it helped to pave the path to her successful blog.  Lindsey shares how putting herself in front of rejection more often (auditions, auditions, auditions) creates a healthy non-attachment to the outcome so that her pursuit is always exciting.  They discuss the "something greater" that is at work, the challenge to trust it, and what happens when our preparation meets it.  If you are experiencing rejection in your career, romantic relationships, family life, in the pursuit of your dreams, internally between you and you....YOU WILL RELATE.

The topic table is a BUFFET this week.  Krista and Lindsey share their "Hundred, NOT Hundred's".  Lindsey got a haircut, so tell ya friends.  But on a note that is so typical/weird us: Who would have thought that finding out what your moon sign is would open up a whole new world of understanding?  Like, "OH WOW I become two different people when someone calls me on my sh*t" becomes less psycho and more acceptable when you are able to lean on your astrological moon sign.  The girls also celebrate and talk about the importance of cultivating a tribe of people that support and lift you up, that give you permission to be vulnerable and open, and that acknowledge your vision and give it light.  Their NOT HUNDRED's are pretty darn relevant .  Let's just say they talk the circus that is the 2016 election, as well as the moment your "EX" finds a new gf/bf. *GASP*    
 
FINALLY.  GHOSTING.  What the heck is that?  What qualifies as "ghosting"?  Have we done it?  Have we been ghosted?  What is acceptable?  How does one prevent the ghost?  We get a call from a listener.  She has just experienced a pretty gnarly case of ghostage.  Sound guy, Steve, was apparently just ghosted last week.  We come together as a fam and figure out what the EFF is going on here.
