Patricia Moreno has been training, mentoring and educating people all over the world for over 30 years. In an effort to end her own struggle with her weight, eating disorders and body image issues, she created The intenSati Method, a life transforming workout which combines her expertise in fitness, dance, martial arts, yoga, nutrition, meditation and spiritual practices.
I remember a few years ago today's guest spoke at a friends' event and hearing some of the people I trust most to be discerning about spiritual mentors absolutely rave about her. Like they couldn't get over how deep and powerful what she shared was for them. I'm happy to report I felt it to by the end of this interview with Patricia Moreno as well. This is one of those kitchen sink conversations where we covered so many things and somehow it all gelled together beautifully. We covered parenting as a spiritual practice, and what to do when the parents don't necessarily agree on everything (and we even got a special visit from her daughters at the end as they got home from school!!). We talked about the problem with a dieting mindset and how to make positive sustainable change, living in the life's questions, transforming your concept of self, and my favorite part - she shared the origin story of her life transforming workout the intenSati Method. Enjoy the interview, I can't wait to hear which part you love most!

Some of you remember my dear friend Jill Coleman from her first appearance on the show in 2016. This time I've invited Jilly back to talk about something very specific that she is SO FREAKING GOOD at helping people with - Food Obsession. If you think about food all the time, beat yourself up about your choices, question yourself about it, feel frozen about making decisions because you've taken in so much conflicting or complicated nutrition information through books, magazines, and programs OR and you regularly don't know what to eat or can't enjoy an easy relationship to food for both vital energy and pleasure without feeling guilty or ashamed this interview will help.
About Jill Coleman:
In addition to launching her personal brand at JillFit.com in 2010, Jill Coleman was a co-founder of Metabolic Effect, Inc. Her 16-year journey in the health and fitness industry began when she got her very first job at a gym just for the free membership at 15!
Since then, it’s a been a whirlwind of education in exercise science and nutrition, fitness competitions, landing several national covers for fitness modeling and plenty of business growth. Her work has been featured in SELF magazine, Family Circle, SHAPE, Women’s Health magazine, Prevention magazine and many online news outlets like Yahoo Health, LiveStrong.com and AOL’s That’s Fit.
Her passion lies in coaching in the areas of mindset, body and business, which she does via her flagship program, The Best Of You (BOY) Coaching Club mentorship, as well as a few signature online programs, like the Mindset Makeover, the Food Obsession Boot Camp and her 52-week exercise program, the Total Training Experience (TTE).
In this episode, Jill shares:
1. Using food as a control mechanism so you can present a certain way
2. Using fullness, hunger, satiety and satisfaction to navigate the best choices for you personally
3. How to deal with all the reasons food creates guilt in your life - not finishing it, over-indulging, etc...
Something I love about young children is that they don't yet have the self-consciousness yet, because they haven't faced much rejection yet, to hold back from simply asking someone to be their friend on the playground. That's how I felt when Tasha Blank and I connected, and the playground was Instagram. The conversation basically went, "Hey I like how you be via your photos and your words, let's be friends." And once I heard her story, I had to have her on the podcast. Today's conversation is the result of a new, innocent, and friendly desire to connect with a kindred soul. We get into altering brain chemistry without using substances, dance as a path to connection, how life is full of maps and it's up to us to discover new territories. This is a really fun one. I know you will discover dormant parts of yourself as you listen and I can't wait to hear what comes up when you do!

I'm excited to share today's episode with you wild ones. Robert Kandell is not just an uber intelligent, successful and funny dude, he's got a breadth of experience that made for an awesome conversation. We explored many facets of relationships and intimacy, from emotional intelligence and self-awareness, to specific practices around communication and how to intentionally function in partnership by creating processes that prevent boredom, getting sucked into routines or becoming resentful over time. Finally, my favorite thing we got into - how women are getting messed up by their own masculinity. This episode is full of things I know many of you can relate to. Enjoy!

It's probably about time that I confess to you all that this podcast gig is just as much for me as it is for you. It's the best excuse ever to connect with people I've been dying to connect with anyway - and we just happen to record our great conversations and everybody wins. That's what today's interview felt like with Rachel Rodgers, a woman I respect a ton and appreciate as a badass mom, wife, and business woman in the world. Plus, she is LOUD and hilarious. This interview is fun and rebellious. We talk about bucking traditions, making your own rules, innovating in life and business, and how to spot what your kids are passionate about and encourage them to nurture those things. A quick warning, Rachel might be louder than I am so enjoy listening, and you might want to turn the volume down to start ;)
About Rachel Rodgers:
Rachel is a business lawyer turned business coach, intellectual property strategist, creator of Small Business Bodyguard and all around badass.
Before Rachel was showing service business owners how to build powerful products, she was running a very non-traditional law firm that disrupted the legal industry by making it surprisingly easy (and damn fun) for innovative companies to work with experienced attorneys and get the legal help they need to do the crazy stuff they want to do.
In 2013, she created the Small Business Bodyguard: Cover Your Bases, Cover Your Assets, Cover Your Ass. This game-changing legal resource has been called “fun and engaging” by New York Times bestselling author Chris Brogan and a “graduate-level course on how to build a strong foundation for your business” by CEO of OurDeal, Kyle Durand.
Rachel is known for being an innovator and master of productizing services and creating high-quality, high profit products. SBB and the other legal kits she’s created have been transformative, generating over half a million dollars in revenue in just two years and serving 1,700 small businesses around the country.
Rachel has spoken on the subject of creating products, building solid service businesses and intellectual property in numerous venues including a class on CreativeLive, to MBA students at MIT and at various conferences including, InfusionCon.
Rachel received her J.D. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York and her “MBA” the hard way, by building various successful ventures over the last 5+ years and learning from the best business minds out there. Before becoming an entrepreneur Rachel worked for various state and federal judges, a high-impact non-profit and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
When Rachel isn’t taking care of clients or creating new products, she enjoys baking in the kitchen (barefoot, with rosé in hand), lifting weights, juicing (the green kind, not the steroid kind), reading to her toddlers, being a “dance mom” and going on new adventures with her family (her favorite destination being France, of course!).
In this episode, Rachel shares:
1. How to actually do it all (and not hate your life)
2. Evolving your relationship to money
3. Being who you are no matter what
There's a crass saying about break ups that, "The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else." That's certainly one way to go (and I can't say I haven't tried it in the past!), but the route I chose after my most recent one was to zoom in on the experience and really look at how I co-created all the parts that made it not a good fit. It's humbling work, not always pleasant, but so worthwhile for the long term and today's guest has played a pivotal role in the process with me. Terri Cole is a fierce and loving friend, brilliant therapist and coach, and someone with an abundance of wisdom and experience to share. She is super grounded as her new tagline, "It's not magic, it's psychology" indicates, and we dove deep into really important topics smart, highly driven and achievement oriented women (and men) should all be aware of in relationships. From our subconscious drivers and downloaded relationship blueprints to high-functioning co-dependency and gas lighting, this conversation is a big one. Listen more than once and pay attention for the parts that make you want to shut it off because they hit so close to home. We'll be doing a follow up webinar on Jan 11 to go even deeper and take Q+A, too. The link to register for that call as well as some extra resources Terri provided are all in the show notes. Enjoy!
About Terri Cole:
Terri Cole, LCSW, founder and CEO of Live Fearless and Free, is a licensed psychotherapist, transformation coach, and an expert at turning fear into freedom by combining practical psychology, thought innovation, and harnessing the power of intention to create sustainable change.
In this episode, Terri shares:
1. Unraveling control and manipulation in relationships
2. Understanding gas lighting, transference and secondary gain so you can spot them from now on
3. Looking at why we attract less than optimal romantic partners so we can stop doing it
4. Quitting co-dependency
