PODCAST EPISODE 166: Make Your New Year's Dreams a Reality with Jessica Michelle Singleton

dreams podcast Jan 25, 2022

How do you create your dream life? Can tough times provide fuel to help you find your passion? I talked Jessica Michelle Singleton about how she got to where she is today - and how her comedy promotes healing.

Jessica has been a force in the comedy world for the past half a decade. She was most recently seen in the Showtime docuseries, "The Comedy Store" about the world famous club on Sunset Blvd where comedians like Robin Williams, David Letterman, and Richard Pryor got their starts.

Her second comedy album, "Horny for Death" just debuted at #1 on iTunes and Amazon, making this her second #1 album. She's raw and hilarious. Her honest stream-of-consciousness style of delivery keeps audiences cracking up while feeling seen for all the normal human "flaws" we tend to run from.


A preview of our conversation:

Kim: I love this thing that you're doing because it's kind of a topic that I've been big on lately, which is: creating your own place at the table.

PODCAST EPISODE 165: Supersized Lies: Myths About Weight Loss and the Diet Industry

nutrition podcast Jan 23, 2022

The world would have you believe that losing weight is easy, but the truth is, in many cases, you’re being fed a generous helping of falsehoods and misguided dieting advice.

The media, celebrities, weight-loss gurus, and the Internet bombard society with recommendations about how to shed unwanted pounds: Count calories, cut carbs, exercise more, skip meals, drink more water, pop a pill. Yet as more people try diligently to follow this advice, waistlines continue to expand.

Robert J. Davis, PhD, also known as The Healthy Skeptic, is an award-winning health journalist whose work has appeared on TIME, CNN, PBS, WebMD, and in The Wall Street Journal. The author of three previous books on health, he hosts the “Healthy Skeptic” video series, which dissects the science behind popular health claims. Davis holds an undergraduate degree from Princeton University, a master’s degree in public health from Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health, and a PhD...

PODCAST EPISODE 164. Practical Advice on Eliminating Pain Without Medication or Surgeries


Pain serves a purpose. It pinpoints where our limits lie. It helps us grow stronger and more resilient. But sometimes it overstays its welcome, interfering with our quality of life.

While medication, surgeries, and other invasive treatments are all options on the table, sometimes the solution to controlling and eliminating pain lies in understanding the human body – i.e., where the buttons are and create balance or alignment using non-invasive techniques.

In this episode, I’m joined by Chris Kidawski, who is the founder and CEO of Influential Health Solutions. Chris goes by many titles that he has picked up over the last two decades working in the wellness and fitness industry. He is a speaker, an author with more than 7 books to his name, and a coach.

PODCAST EPISODE 163. Working Through Mental Struggles that Rob Athletes of Success


The mental side of the game is a skill and can be learned and practiced just like any other aspect of softball, soccer, volleyball, or any other competitive sport. Coach Jennifer Siess Gansner believes that when we define our experience, we can know it, name it, own it, and change it. 

As the founder of Mine to Define coaching, Coach Jenn helps competitive, athletic girls take charge of their performance, break down defining moments, create personalized strategies, and level up to win at sports and in life.


What We Talked About:

 What is the Mine to Define Framework?

We're born with some gifts, but we all have the ability to improve anything we want to with practice and work. The framework includes three pillars: Optimum Ownership, Growth Mindset, and Courageous Confidence.

What is Courageous Confidence?

It's having the courage to believe in yourself when you don't know what the outcome's going to be.

PODCAST EPISODE 161: The Importance of Resistance Training for Women Over 50 with Mike Pullano

aging menopause podcast Nov 17, 2021

According to Mike Pullano, our podcast guest today, resistance training might be an aging girl’s best friend. The Chief Product Officer at ARX (Adaptive Resistance Exercise) recommends resistance training as a key part of aging gracefully—and for good reasons. Mikes insists that resistance training is a fundamental part of health. It is arguably the first line of defense against muscle loss. Strength training also builds resilience, reduces your physical vulnerability to injury, helps ease the management of chronic conditions, boosts your cognitive health, and even impacts gene expression to reverse the progression of aging. 


A Few Takeaways from Our Interview: 

This discussion covers a wide range of topics surrounding the use of machine-driven resistance to create an adaptive resistance training program to help optimize the physical and mental benefits of...

PODCAST EPISODE 160. Emotional Eating During the Holidays: What You Need to Know with Cassie Christopher

nutrition podcast Nov 15, 2021

I thought this would be a helpful topic to cover as we head into the holiday season. Somehow, as a society, we've worked ourselves into a place where there can be a lot of shame and guilt around holiday eating. Magazines and fitness experts will blow up your social media feeds the next two months, with all kinds of "rules" around eating... how to plan for that stuffing or pumpkin pie, how to starve yourself all day so you can go to that work cocktail party, how many burpees you need to do to "work off" the holiday cookies you ate in the breakroom. 

It's no wonder we have so much confusion over nutrition, diet, exercise... as well as a stigma around larger bodies and a skewed idea of what beautiful means.

Today's guest wants you to know that all the emotions and confusion you feel around eating are not your fault. We've been fed so much garbage about what to think and believe, it's hard to sort through it all.

Cassie Christopher is going to set you straight, and hopefully,...

empowerment podcast purpose Oct 25, 2021

This week's podcast guest knows all about forging a new path and finding happiness and success. At a young age, Marie Gould found herself with a gaping hole in her heart. Her journey to mend her brokenness took her to all the wrong places, and at times she feared she would never find what she longed for as she continued to make decisions that made her life challenging.

In the introduction to her book, "Love Thirst: a Spiritual Journey from Broken to Beautiful,"  Marie says, "My story is not about anything extraordinary other than the fact that from the time I was young, I needed a lot of love and kept looking for it in the craziest places. I was like everyone, desiring to be loved. So I looked for a lot of it, plain and simple."

Marie is a hairstylist, mother, grandmother, author, and speaker who hopes to encourage others with a longing to heal their own broken, hole-riddled hearts.
