Day in the Life of a Meteorologist

Day in the Life of a Meteorologist: Ever wonder what a day in the life is like for a Meteorologist? Check out this episode of the Day in the Life podcast with Sean Sublette to find out!

Today’s interview is with Meteorologist Sean Sublette! With all of the hurricanes, wildfires, polar vortexes happening across the US, I thought it’d be interesting to bring on a Meteorologist to talk about what a day in their life is like!

Sean shares: what it was like to work as a local network meteorologist and how those days different than the work he does now at Climate Central, his thoughts on climate change and how we can do small, incremental things to have a positive impact on our environment, what exactly is a polar vortex and how it actually plays into climate change, the margin of error in his job and how he handles criticism and so much more!

Excited for you to tune in and hope you enjoy!

Let’s Boost Our Moods by Drawing!

Let's Boost Our Moods by Drawing!: Did you know that drawing can reduce tension and stress in your life? Drawing can also be a huge mood booster too! Tune in to this episode on the Day in the Life podcast to find out how you can incorporate drawing into your daily life. #mood #motivation #inspiration #drawing

This week I chatted with Emily Mills who is obviously a creative and artistic genius. I made it clear how much I lack the skills to draw or be artistic in any sort of way, but after last week’s minisode about stopping myself from saying that I “can’t” do something, I’m trying to change my language and how I speak about my drawing skills.

I then started looking into how drawing can positively impact your days — and boy, I found a lot of research on this!

Tune in to find out how drawing can boost your mood and positively impact your day to day life!

What’s Something That You Feel Like You “Can’t” Do?

What's Something That You Feel Like You "Can't" Do?: Is there something you've always told yourself you "can't" do because you're not smart enough, thin enough, experienced, etc? You'll definitely want to tune in to this episode on the Day in the Life podcast! #motivation #inspiration #personaldevelopment

This week I chatted with Sandy and Jeni from Namastream and our conversation got me thinking about how people approach things they feel like they “can’t” do. It was eye-opening to me that neither Sandy nor Jeni had a software engineering background, yet here they are, creating an incredible software company.

Like, have you told yourself your entire life that you “can’t” do something for one reason or another? I know I have.

I’ve told myself “I’m not athletic” “I can’t draw” “I’m not smart enough/experienced enough to do XYZ”

While I’m certainly not going to be the next Michael Jordan or Picasso, I can, in fact do some of these things, I just don’t try because I won’t be the best or the expert at it.

Of course, this is perfectionism peeping it’s ugly head into my subconscious again and I’m sure many of you may feel the same. It’s uncomfortable to do new things but to quote marketing expert Seth Godin, “fear is a compass, not a barrier. It becomes a way to know what to do next, not an evil demon to be extinguished.”

Tune into this episode to find what you can do to start doing that one thing you feel like you “can’t” do, but have always wanted to.

Today’s interview is special because it’s another double interview! We haven’t had one of those since interviewing World Travelers Lisa & Peter Hoppe.

Anyways, I’m interviewing Sandy Connery & Jeni Barcelos who are the founders of a software company called Namastream.

Sandy & Jeni did NOT have software engineering backgrounds at all when they started Namastream and as two female founders of a tech company, I thought it’d be great to get their insight on their struggles, successes and a peek inside what it’s really like to run a software company.

We chat about the major challenges bootstrapping a tech company (they did not get venture capital funding), the specific challenges facing female entrepreneurs in tech, the biggest barriers they’ve had to overcome, misconceptions people have about working in the tech industry, advice to young women who want to work in tech and so much more.

As always, you can join in the conversation with other Day in the Life listeners in the Day in the Life Facebook group!

Why Do We Hold Onto Stuff?

Why Do We Hold Onto Stuff?: We're diving deep into the psychology behind why we hold on to stuff for months, even years, and discussing how to finally break through and get rid of clutter that's holding you back. #organization #organized #organizedlife

This week I chatted with Professional Organizer Megan Mangione and it really got me thinking about stuff and why we hold on to it.

I researched a bit further into why we hold on to stuff, even when we feel cluttered, overwhelmed and disorganized. I’m definitely guilty of this and what I found through researching is exactly the reasons why I hold on to things.

During this episode, I’m sharing what I found after diving into some research onto why we hold on to too much stuff and how I’m clearing out the physical and mental clutter in my life.

Other People’s Perceptions of You: Do You Care Too Much?

Today’s minisode we’re talking about other people’s perceptions and if you care too much.

This week’s interview with exotic dancer Demiana may have been a polarizing one for you guys, but I wanted to continue the conversation by talking about other people’s perceptions of you and if you care too much.

Here’s the thing: we all to some degree, for the most part, compare ourselves to other people. It’s a natural, human thing to do. It’s also natural to care about what other people think about you. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, to some degree it helps you be self-aware which I think is an important quality in people.

But for a lot of us, we can care way too much about what other people think about us. And during my interview with Demiana and her sharing about what her friends and family thought about her career it got me thinking more on this topic.

I for one am guilty of caring way too much what other’s think about me. I’m a people pleaser through and through and have struggled with this my entire life.

Tune in to learn how to know if other people’s perceptions are affecting your life too much and what to do about it.

Today’s interview is perhaps a polarizing one…but honestly I learned SO much from this interview so I hope you’ll listen before making any judgments.

This week’s interview is with Demiana Dacosta who is an exotic dancer. Demiana actually pitched me the idea and if you’ve been a longtime listener you clearly know that I have not had on anyone anywhere near this background so I thought it was a great opportunity to broaden not only my understandings of this career, but yours too.

Demiana and I talk about how she got started in her career as an exotic dancer, what her family/friends/and boyfriend think of her in this career, the many misconceptions and stereotypes about the industry, what a typical shift looks like, what the pay structure is for dancers, and a lot more.

I really enjoyed my conversation with Demiana and I’m excited for you guys to tune in and learn too.
