How do you keep going when the going gets tough? What do you do when the worst-case scenario happens? How do you find your endurance and your devotion when challenges show up?

This week, I'm talking with writer Alexandra Franzen all about her new book You're Going to Survive as well as her own experiences with facing those seemingly-unsurvivable challenges. 

You'll hear her favorite stories from the book, her thoughts on those horrible emails we all dread, and what she did after a bad yelp review sent her into a tailspin! 

We all experience doubt in our creative work - this episode might be just what you need to reconnect to your grit!

Ah, social media! It's where we all love to connect and get inspired and show our work and the thing that's usually the cause of our comparison syndrome, overwhelm, and lack of fresh ideas.

So how do you deal? This week, I'm talking with Instagram expert and social media strategist Jaimie Myers about just that. 

We cover what you want to pay attention to instead of the numbers, how to build relationships, and how to move beyond the picture perfect feeds you see everywhere.

We also talk about the strategies you might want to stay away from (and I share my own story of a day when I tried something that turned out to be super high on the ick factor) and how to get started if you're new at social media and/or overwhelmed by it all. 

Oh! And you'll also hear Jaimie's top Instagram do's and don'ts - they're so good!

All episodes

So many of us are striving for something bigger in our lives and creative work. We want to find success doing something that makes us come alive *and* that serves the world. (No pressure, right?)

And, it's so easy to fall prey to watching what everyone else is doing and wanting a piece of their picture instead of focusing on our own. (You aren't alone. We all do it.)

This week, I'm talking about how I think so many of us are focusing on the wrong thing in our creative longings and where you can look instead. My way feels a lot more fun and easy, so what's there to lose?

Oh! And the doubt. I'll also share my new favorite way for dealing with those inevitable doubts that show up in every moment!

I was thrilled to get to interview Liz Bohannon, founder and CEO of Sseko Designs, for this week's episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes. We talked about how she went from "an idea" of what her calling was to building the company she has now. 

We also talked about how she felt about quitting her "looks good on paper" job to move to Uganda without a plan, what happened when she realized that she was building a business around things she *thought* she hated, and how many times she's been told no. 

This episode was full of SO MANY gems (get the cheat sheet on how to pursue your calling below!) and might be just what you need to get your butt in gear towards making something big happen for this world.

This week's solo show is all about what you can do when the worst-case scenario happens. I'm telling you a story that I haven't talked about publicly yet about a time, early in my career, when I asked someone for more money for some work I was doing and was promptly put in my place and told why I was completely wrong for asking for what I needed. Yeah. It was like that. 

And while the experience itself sucked, I learned a TON which I'm sharing with you today! You'll also hear some reflections of my latest meditation retreat experience as well as the giant lightbulb moment I had recently about how I've been washing my face ALL WRONG. For my entire life! Bah!! 

Enjoy, enjoy!

I was thrilled to be able to bring this interview with Tanya out of the RYHSY archives for this week's show. In the interview, we talk about Tanya's work and what I think is the biggest threat to creative women: the Imposter Complex.
