CATCH UP WITH K + L

 

Today K & L are sharing thoughts, reflecting on events, and reviewing tips for optimal sleep! The girls begin with a conversation around the “campsite policy”, one Lindsey found in Some Thoughts About Relationships.  The policy is one Dan Savage coined.  Who wants Dan back on the show to discuss!? His belief is that in relationships, you should not leave someone worse off than when you first met them.  FOOD FOR THOUGHT! The ladies then discuss their event with HUM Nutrition and share sleep tips from The Sleep Doctor, Michael Breus. And lastly, K & L fondly reflect on their last show in NYC with Stewart Pearce at The Assemblage.

 

THE INTERVIEW

 

Today we had the pleasure of interviewing the host of the popular podcast,  Don’t Keep Your Day Job and coach for creative entrepreneurs, Cathy Heller! Her upcoming book, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, is all about living life on your terms and pursuing the things that may be scary, but are calling out to you.

 

Our conversation explores emotions, motivation, creativity, entrepreneurship and turning inward. Cathy speaks on how the resistance of feeling is actually what causes the greatest amount of pain. She explains how state of mind trumps everything—from sleep to food—when it comes to motivation and productivity, and shares her knowledge on how to find momentum and enthusiasm. When it comes to pursuing your passion, Cathy gives tips for where to start, like determining your target audience. We talk about the importance of spending time alone and allowing yourself to be creative. Lastly, we ask Cathy what she’s proud of and what she’s working on, and she opens up about her experience with anxiety and relationship OCD.

 

We also talk about:

  • How humans fear and hide from their feelings
  • The isolating feeling of being an entrepreneur
  • Cultivating a community & making people feel seen
  • Responding to the feedback of your community
  • Not being afraid to share your story
  • The four things people crave that equal a sense of purpose
  • What do we ultimately seek in life?

With blistered feet, full hearts and fond memories, the gals reflect on the place that saw them through the sh*tstorms, and on their live show with Heather McMahan at Chelsea Music Hall. Stay tuned for the live recording to launch as an episode soon!

 

THE INTERVIEW

 

Today we are sitting down with travel writer and New York Times best selling author of To Shake the Sleeping Self, Jedidiah Jenkins! We had the privilege of spending time with Jedidiah at the Onsite Workshops Creatives’ Retreat. We’ve admired him from afar for so long, and in meeting this sweet being we were confirmed in our admiration for his authenticity, humor, thoughtfulness, and ability to truly see people and make them feel special by way of the deepest conversations. 

 

In our conversation today, we start by discussing music, concerts and releasing energy such as anger. Jedidiah then begins sharing his story, and paints a picture of his journey in writing his book. From his experience with imposter syndrome to meeting one of his favorites, Cheryl Strayed, and how she came to write a blurb for his book—he has us laughing the whole time. Jedidiah talks about his relationship with his parents after coming out, and shares how he’s never felt shame around his sexuality, even after growing up in an Evangelical Christian household. He also shares how he’s cultivated deep friendships, and how he fosters those relationships and builds community. We have been long awaiting this conversation, and can’t wait to share it with you!

 

We also talk about:

  • Societies view of the body as carnal and animalistic
  • A mixing board as a metaphor for human life
  • Jedidiah’s deep dive into Christianity
  • The repression of sexuality impacting other aspects of life
  • The lack respectful disagreement in our society
  • Gravity points for finding authentic friendships
  • Jedidiah’s creative process

Are you looking to connect with people through dating, making new friends, or networking? Today we are joined by former Chief Brand Officer of Bumble, Alex Williamson, to discuss what makes Bumble different from other social and dating apps. As a company, they value kindness and respect, and empower women to make the first move.

 

Alex describes how Bumble ensures that their users have a positive experience and feel safe. For example, they are taking steps to criminalize the sending of lewd pictures. She gives tips for creating a profile, like avoiding group pictures, and the importance of showcasing who you are to avoid heartache. We love and appreciate how Alex really dives into the issues with online dating, outdated gender norms, and how you can find true connection (friendships and relationships!) through the use of Bumble.

 

We also talk about:

  • Feeling empowered in relationships
  • Advice to avoid abuse from dating apps
  • Respectful & compassionate dating
  • Bumble BFF & Bizz
  • Favorite stories from couples who have met on bumble
  • Establishing a strong brand voice
