Creative expression can be an invaluable tool for personal growth. Whenever we take the time to explore our creative sides, we are engaging in a process of self-reflection and discovery that allows us to better understand who we are and what brings us joy. Whether it's through writing, painting, music or any other form of artistic expression, taking that space to explore our creative selves encourages us to think critically about our own ideas and feelings, as well as how these things fit into the larger world around us.
This week, Kim is talking with Jeff Dolan, the CEO of Wavve, a cloud-based platform that helps podcasters and other audio creators keep marketing on social media simple. He is a podcaster, musician, and award-winning filmmaker who loves to encourage creators of all stripes.

With running season upon us, it's important to approach training with caution to avoid injuries and burnout. And as we get excited about warmer weather, it’s easy to try to ramp up our training too quickly. Maybe we haven’t been as active over the winter, and our muscles and tendons and ligaments have not caught up with our enthusiasm for running, so our heart says run, run, run… and our body is saying, woah… wait a minute. Let me catch up.
That's why I’m talking with Dr. Eoin Everard, a chartered physiotherapist with a PhD in Biomechanics. He’ll share his expertise on injury prevention and recovery strategies.
As an international runner himself, Dr. Everard understands the importance of mobility, stability, and motor control exercises in improving running technique and preventing injuries.

It was such a pleasure to speak with this week's guest, Ed Hajim. Ed grew up in and out of foster care with little guidance or support system, yet he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. In his book, "ON THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED: An Unlikely Journey from the Orphanage to the Boardroom," Ed shares that his father kidnapped him at age 3, drove him cross country and away from his mother, and told Ed that his mother was dead! Shortly after, his dad abandoned him, leaving Ed to grow up in orphanages and foster homes.
As humans, it is in our nature to want to give up when the going gets tough. But what if we could push through those low moments and use them as an opportunity for growth? What if...

In this episode, I talk with the author of From Couch Potato to Endurance Athlete: A Portrait of a Non-athletic Triathlete, Hilary JM Topper of Merrick, NY.

Petia Kolibova is a women’s transformation coach who helps women who have been pushed down and been playing it small due to toxic relationships or unhealed childhood trauma to create a life that is true to them and their soul purpose.
Her mission is to help women who are on the path to healing from past wounds move through their limiting beliefs and internal blocks so they can finally do what they want to do and what feels good to them.
Petia: We give up on our dreams. We give up on our hopes. We start living in the matrix. We start living in a world that has been constructed for us by listening to everyone around us, instead of trusting ourselves and our intuition. It's so important to go back to your body and starting to really listen to yourself and tune into what feels right for you and what doesn't... instead of listening everyone else... because no one else has you. No one else will have all the answers.

Michaela: As much as we can't control our circumstances, and we don't always control the thoughts or feelings that are flying in and out of our brains, we can control what we do with them once they're there... whether we're going to be more optimistic, pessimistic, stay in the yucky places or decide...
Kirsty Taylor is a Holistic Nutritionist, bridging science and spirituality. She empowers people to understand what their bodies are trying to tell them, so they can heal their root causes. Because our bodies are always communicating with us, it’s important to understand that these root causes are more than physical symptoms, and we need to also understand how our bodies need to heal on an emotional, mental and energetic level.
Kim: Can you start off by telling us: what is gut health?
Kirsty: If you ask different people, you'll probably get different answers to that question. Gut health really begins in our mouth and it ends in our bottoms. ... I think a lot of people, when they're thinking about gut health, tend to think more about microbiome. And that micro-biome lives in a large intestines.
