I was so excited to get to interview Leah Vernon of Beauty and the Muse for this week's episode! 

Leah and I covered SO MUCH in this conversation, including:
+ what graduate school taught her about bouncing back from rejection
+ how to be unapologetically yourself
+ how to find your people and the right kind of support
+ how to develop a writing habit
+ the acceptance of anger
+ how to let go of what other people care and think

Oh, yes. Profound things happen when you let go of the need to keep other people comfortable at the detriment of yourself. Amen and hallelujah! 

Enjoy, enjoy!

Can you use your art as resistance, as a form of activism, or as a catalyst for social change? Yes, you can, and this week, I'm talking with Susan Celia Swan about how to do just that. 

Susan is the Executive Director of V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. We had such an amazing conversation about what creative women can do to activate change in their local communities and on a global scale. 

We also talked about what to do if you want to serve but aren't sure how to get started, the big impact tiny moves can create, and how to deal with the imperfection that can rise up when YOU want to rise up.

This conversation is important and powerful. We've all got big work to do. No pressure, hand raisers! And let's go.

Nicole Antoinette on Making Change

I had THE BEST time interviewing Nicole Antoinette for this week's episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes. She was an absolute open book when it came to how she's approached making big changes in her life - including her step to get sober five years ago. (Spoiler: yes, it was hard.)

If you are someone who wants to make a change in your life, but are wondering how to either get started or keep that ball moving forward, this episode will be perfect for you. We talk about what to do when things get hard, why motivation is bullshit, and how to keep going.
