BABY ONE MORE TIME is the WANTcast’s take on “Greatest Hits” or “Best Of” episodes: conversations that were so awesome the first time around, we needed to bring them back!

Missed it the first time around? We’re back with a remastered version. Loved it back in the day? Re-listen and re-love it (and maybe pick up on some gems you didn’t hear when we first aired).

Jacki Carr is a goal coach, motivational speaker, and leadership consultant. She has become a highly sought-after pro in her arena who’s helped hundreds of people across the globe not only reach their goals, but actually craft exactly what those goals look like, why they matter, and a path to them that is unique to every single person – personal goals, professional goals, and everything in between.


What I love is that Jacki’s not a life coach, and she’s not a therapist, she’s got a passion for GOAL SETTING and ACHIEVING specifically that just exudes from every single thing she does. I found this episode not just uplifting… but action-inspiring. Listening back on this episode made me reflect on my own goals and visions, and how I can use what I’ve been given to make my own unique impact both personally and professionally. I thought about the stages I’ve been through, and what kinds of changes I might want to make in the future. Hopefully, it’ll do the same for you too.

Abiola Abrams is an award-winning author, advice columnist, motivational speaker, and certified life coach who has given her life-changing advice on networks from MTV and BET to the Discovery Channel and the BBC, as well as being a popular advice columnist for Essence and on sites like Match.com. Her book The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love won Best Self-Help Book at the African American Literary Awards. As what she calls the “Midwife for Your Inspired Life,” her online empowerment programs help women to answer and rock their callings, by turning self-love to self-launch. She is the founder of the women’s empowerment blog and web series on SacredBombshell.com and the podcast Spiritpreneur School, aka – yes – The Goddess Factory. (and yes, I know. She’s a master at naming things. Just you wait ’till you listen to the episode)


I LOVE each twist and turn of this conversation, talking everything from what to do when you feel like other people just don’t quite GET what you’re about yet and sticking to your guns when it seems like everyone else is getting ahead, to getting your voice heard even when other people are trying to manipulate it to their liking along the way.
 We also talk about being an extroverted introvert and getting swept up in the bigness of whatever’s going on around you, and whether you’re super extroverted or incredibly introverted, how to stay grounded AND enthusiastic even when life is demanding a lot of you (especially when things are really good and borderline overwhelming, which are the times that can sometimes throw us off the most if you’re anything like me).

Today’s guest is Sarah Britton – author, holistic nutritionist, certified nutritional practitioner, and artist (you’ll hear why later in the podcast) who’s based in Copenhagen Denmark. She is the creative force behind MY NEW ROOTS, an award-winning food blog featuring original recipes that taste great, look beautiful, and boast incredible health benefits (ps, she’s been doing this since 2007 – so she really is the food blogger OG).


In this episode we talk about overcoming obstacles, manifesting things in your life and how important it is to be mindful of what you wish for, how Sarah completely revamped her relationship with food, and three things that ANYONE can do to remove what Sarah calls the fog from your life and wake up FULLY. I’m talking super simple things that don’t involve going to a fancy store, searching for some weird gadget on Amazon, or overhauling your life – these are small tweaks that anybody can make no matter what your lifestyle. Basically, this episode is all about how to realize and actualize how good you’re meant to feel on a day-to-day basis.

*Season Three Finale*


For the final episode of Season Three, it's all about you and YOUR questions. After a quick recap of 2018 and Season Three, we dive into five questions from YOU, the WANT community, having to do with boosting your confidence (especially when you're simultaneously trying/needing to uplift others) achieving your goals while staying charged up and energized, "trusting the timing of life" and releasing control when it's the most frustrating to do so, how to deal with hurtful/toxic social media interactions, and - the big one - why so many of us are SO damn lonely and how to find those friends and communities we crave as adults.


Stay tuned until the end - there's a special announcement about the future of the WANTcast and what 2019 has in store for WANT (hint, it involves you)!


*Thank you so much for everything you give to WANT, and to me, and to each other, on a daily basis. I appreciate you and adore you more than I could ever even begin to express. So happy we're in this together. ONWARD!*

Author, speaker, photographer and blogger Karen Walrond is the kind of person you just want to know. You just want to soak in some of her light and magic, because maybe, JUST MAYBE, you can use it to help make your own. As someone who has worked extensively with Dove Real Beauty and as a leader in Brené Brown's Daring Way training, Karen is in the business of helping you shine your unique light, no matter WHAT the world throws at you or tells you you need to be.

***

In this episode we talk...

-Losing everything (yep, her entire house and all her belongings) in Hurricane Harvey and how she got through

-Having multiple career titles (she was an attorney!) and weaving them all together 

-Fighting against beauty standards and a beauty industry that is highly unrealistic (and predominantly white, thin, and privileged)

-Adoption as a first choice, not a "backup plan," and creating a family based on your OWN values



...and so much more!

As a fitness star at the top of her field, Patricia Moreno appeared to have it all, but knew she was both living and selling a lie: preaching that diet and exercise were the keys to true happiness, while inside she was suffering under a heavy spell of shame and unworthiness. She knew there was more to life, and made it her mission to find the answer and break that spell for everyone suffering the same as her.

After adventures that took her around the world studying, meditating and practicing with gurus and scholars, Patricia created the intenSati Method and began to reshape the fitness industry, and the lives of tens of thousands from the inside-out. Today she's speaking up and calling out the very methods and mindset that she used to be a part of. She is on a mission tear down the body-shaming self-objectifying thin-ideal norms, and show what self love in action truly looks and feels like.

In this episode, we talk about Patricia's journey from a girl whose parents put her on a diet at eight years old, to the thought leader, powerhouse, and "Spiritual Fitness" pioneer she is today. You're not going to want to miss a beat.

You've probably heard "Talk to yourself like you'd talk to someone you love" as foolproof advice to shift your negative self-talk. Easy, right?

But if this is the way to a healthier internal dialogue...then why doesn't it work? Why it it so hard to talk lovingly to ourselves like we'd talk lovingly to someone we care a great deal about?

Here's why: it's hard because we're not talking to people this way.

This episode is all about why "would you say that to a friend?!" is half-baked advice, and how to really practice shifting the script instead.

Tricia Huffman's been in the business of real-deal feel-good since way before social media was a thing. And here's what I love most about her: she's all about the rogue affirmations. Most people in the feel-good biz will shower their people with "You Are Beautiful"s and "Abundance Is Yours"s and say see ya. But Tricia? She digs deeper.

Tricia Huffman, aka Your Joyologist, is on a mission to inspire you to truly live YOUR life and love yourself through all the ups and downs and curve balls life throws us.  While living out her first dream as touring sound engineer she saw that everyone, including the people we think “have it all” don’t feel fulfilled.  So she first created her Joyology to keep artists healthy, ground and inspired in body and mind while on tour.  She got off the road to make space to become a mother and create her affirmation based product line. She is now a mom of two little girls and works with everyone from Grammy Award winning artists to stay at home moms, to become and commit to the person they know they are capable of being deep down and keep them in integrity with who they want to be in the world, for themselves, and for their families. 


While this coversation starts with a little bit of a venting session on both our parts, I decided to keep it in because I think it's a GREAT example of productive venting, which is quite different from aimless complaining.
Bitching about social media is becoming a "thing" ON social media (lol, the irony), however a lot of what I read simply talks about how annoying and tiring it all is...and places blame on everyone else for the rules we're supposed to follow.


But really...who tells us we are "supposed" to follow them? Nope, no one but ourselves. Which leads me to my absolute FAVORITE part of this interview with Tricia: where we dive in and dig deep about how to distance ourselves from our need for validation, and how to take accountability and responsibility even when we feel something is entirely someone else's fault. Tricia knows how it feels to be resistant, and she knows what it means to OWN YOUR AWESOME. But she didn't get there without getting real with herself and examining what was actually getting in her way.

Take a listen and let me know what you think!

***we do use a good deal of salty language in this episode***

In this episode of the WANTcast, one of our listeners asked to hear about how to make (and keep!) life goals that are realistic and are actually right for you, not just what looks or sounds good or "right."

What's right for one person isn't necessarily right for another - and what's unrealistic to one person might be more attainable for you than you think.

Some questions to ask yourself, some red flags to look out for, how to figure out goals that work for you, and yes - how to actually go about ACHIEVING them (no bs here, folks).

Wanna get a book published, but nervous you might not have what it takes? Wanna save the planet, but too busy shaming yourself because you don't know if you even recycle the "right way?" Ashlee Piper's got you covered.

Ashlee is an eco-lifestyle journalist, TV personality, and author of the new sustainable living book, Give A Sh*t: Do Good. Live Better. Save the Planet. Her work has been featured in and she's a regular contributor for Glamour, Refinery29, The Washington Post, NBC, FOX, and more. 

In this episode, Ashlee breaks down ALL the real-deal step-by-steps of getting a book published by a major publishing house (yep, even if you don't have "connections" or tens of thousands of followers), how an idea can evolve over time to become what it's actually meant to be (everyone needs a first draft in life!), and how we can all do our part, no matter WHAT our life looks like, to give a sh*t and save the world - literally.

It's Friday, and it's time for some THINKING OUT LOUD. If you're new here, our THINKING OUT LOUD episodes are very loosely structured solo episides of me riffing off of whatever thoughts are on my mind lately.

I often pair them with an Instagram post so you can follow along easy-peasy. Here's the one that goes with today's episode.

On deck for today:

- The difference between following inspiration and following an aesthetic

- Being a tourist in your own city and what kinds of life lessons that brings up

- Being a good person vs making sure a lot of people THINK you’re a good person

- Body pride + mental well-being

...and SO much more.

Ksenia Avdulova is a FORCE to be reckoned with in the digital world. a speaker, social media strategist, and founder of @breakfastcriminals, an award-nominated digital platform known for its influential online presence and offline experiences that merge food and mindfulness. You've probably seen her gorgeous acai and smoothie bowls on Instagram in her signature "heart bowl."


Ksenia
's conscious social media methodology, Hashtag Mindful, is rooted in the idea that social media is a tool to share our message, expand our success, and create a positive impact. She has been a workshop leader and speaker at the United Nations GirlUp summit and other empowerment-centered events and retreats around the world. Ksenia is also a featured marketing teacher on Skillshare and co-founder of @crystalcriminals.

In her podcast, Woke and WiredKsenia and her guests have unfiltered conversations about expanded consciousness and entrepreneurship in the digital age.

Ksenia has created something REALLY special through Woke and Wired. After binge listening to the first few episodes, I was immediately certain that this is the missing piece we need in a wellness culture that values spirituality over practicality, and a business culture that values the bottom line over looking inside. I am so inspired by these intelligent and nuanced conversations that Ksenia leads with such grace, ease, and mindfulness. There's truly nothing else like it.

Whether you're looking to use the internet to build out a business, stumped on how/when to monetize, curious what goes on behind the scenes (and screens) of influencers, or you're just wondering how the heck to stay grounded and centered in our Like!-Post!-Share! culture, this is a conversation you're going to want to come back to over and over again. Grab a pen, take notes, and come hang with us.

Reframing and reworking jealousy has been a GAME CHANGER for me. I'm highly sensitive, so jealousy isn't just wanting what I don't have: it's also feeling BAD about wanting it, feeling GUILTY for spending time wanting it, and feeling like a lame person for focusing on it instead of focusing on "uplifting others." It sends me into a shame spiral, and I don't get anything done when I'm in a shame spiral.

There' a saying that goes “Jealousy works the opposite way you want it to.” And it’s true: without a sense of control over your own jealousy, it pushes people away, squelches opportunity, and is one of the most effective forms of self-sabotage.

Yet learning to harness your jealousy can actually inform you of an important missing link, the most important element in any relationship.

On today's episode, I'm going to share a few strategies that have worked for me. Find yourself prey to your own jealous mind? Here’s what to do.

May was Mental Health Awareness Month - but just because the month is over doesn't mean we should stop talking about it. I can't think of a better guest to remind us of this: someone who is a prime example of taking your pain and trauma and turning it into something that can help and empower others.

Kate is a wellness blogger, yoga instructor and entrepreneur based in Philadelphia. Kate promotes health through mindful living, intuitive movement, food freedom and a body positive message. After recovering from an eating disorder and experiencing childhood trauma, Kate chose to heal through community. She now shares her story with her audience in hopes of about building a community centered in authenticity and radical self love. (Kate is also a dog mom, lover of matcha lattes and anything "woo woo", from crystals to astrology and tarot.)

Kate is the co-founder of a wellness events business, The GOOD Festival, which hosts festivals, retreats and workshops nationally. Kate was recently names 1 of 25 Influential Women to Watch in Wellness by Yogiapproved.com and her story and writing have been featured in mindbodygreen, Yoga Digest and Thoughtfully Magazine.

This episode is AMAZING for anyone who wants to build a community of like-minded people sans the BS (whether in-person or online), interested in creating serial success instead of being a one-hit-wonder, loves wellness but is looking for a little more substance than what's on-trend, is curious as to how wellness practices can ACTUALLY heal past wounds and trauma...and, speaking of trauma, anyone who has either experienced trauma in their past that might be holding them back, or knows someone who is still working through their own trauma and might not even recognize it.

So grateful to Kate for sharing so much of herself and being so willing to talk about some sensitive subjects.

(Note: we do not go into graphic detail, but if you have experienced trauma or abuse, please be mindful that we DO talk about these subjects. We make sure we don't speak in a triggering way, but everyone is different - you know yourself best.)

How many times throughout the week do we play the “If Only” game? Think: If only I had a higher budget, I could afford that apartment/car/clothing/etc. If only I had a tech team, I could crush the online game. If only I looked like that, I could avoid feeling like this. If Onlys hold us in a loop of constant longing; constantly believing that our happiness is way far out of reach.

Positive affirmations don’t cut it without a solid base to make them work. And for most of us, it’s marathon-level difficult to “affirmation” our way out of a feeling like worthlessness, shame, or lack that cuts super deep. If Onlys can get us feeling downer than down, and at their worst, stop us from taking any proactive action in our lives.

This episode is all about how to move PAST the If Onlys and get back on a proactive path that's also pragmatic for where you are in this very moment.

Today’s guest is my dear friend Talia Pollock, blogger, holistic health coach, plant-based chef, comedian, and creator of Party In My Plants. Party In My Plants is a platform and podcast that proves to people that becoming happier and healthier doesn't have to suck. Through her humorous and honest approach to healthy living, she inspires, instructs and empowers people to take small steps to transform their lives and take the HELL out of HEALTHY.


She’s currently writing her first cookbook, which will be published by Avery, an imprint of Penguin, and I could not be prouder to call her my pal. I’ve learned so much from her when it comes to engaging an audience, staying true to who you are, and making the serious stuff feel a lot more fun and accessible.


In this episode we talk the business side of podcasting/blogging/coaching and our advice to newbies, Talia’s plant party journey, our beef (or should I say, our tofu??) our beef with the commodification of the wellness industry, the link between wellness pros and food or body images and the stuff to be mindful of if that IS your story (it was with me), and so much more. I had so much fun with her and was on a high for the rest of the day, and know you will be too. Here’s Talia!

It’s very likely that if the thought of checking your bank account balance makes you break out in cold sweats, you’ve got quite a few people around you who are reinforcing this. Family, friends, coworkers, media personalities, Money Shame is everywhere. Just like Casual Negativity, money problems can be a way of bonding with others: commiserating over how expensive something is or how you really can’t afford such-and-such or UGH taxes amiright??

It can be a relief to know that you’re not alone…but it can also be damaging if you’re not devising a game plan to shift into a more positive and proactive reality. Here are some tools to break out of financial fears, shift into a rich mentality, and stay…shall we say…ACCOUNTABLE.

Let’s talk about CENTS, baby. Or for a more current pop culture pun…LET'S MAKE MONEY MOVES!

Today's guest started her business from her own personal experience with autoimmune disease. Rachel Winard is the founder of Soapwalla, a indie skincare brand based in Brooklyn that prides itself on being pure, effective and trustworthy. The all-female company is based in Gowanus in a converted canning factory - so cool. After discovering that she had systemic lupus (an autoimmune illness that led to skin irritations), Rachel started creating products that wouldn't irritate her skin. Today Soapwalla is a globally sold and recognized brand, and truly one of the OGs when it comes to the world of natural beauty. Soapwalla is proudly an LGBTQ-run business, an active advocate of gay and women's rights, and works on getting customers involved too.

In this episode we talk about Rachel's crazy career journey from music to where she is now, how to advocate for a more inclusive and just world in both business and life, our mutual love for kind of unexpected things (like dinosaurs) and so much more. She is such a calming force and at the same time, so bright and effervescent - a friend of mine likes to say that certain people are like the "bubbles in champagne" and that's definitely the case with Rachel.

I know. Social media can be frustrating for me, too. And I can't count how many times I've heard my friends say they're going on a digital detox or post a #DeleteFacebook hashtag (especially after all the drama of this week in particular; I'm looking at you Cambridge Analytica).

But the thing is, going cold turkey DOESN'T REWRITE our bad habits.

If you're listening to the WANTcast, you're probably already pretty mindful IRL. You’re present in your conversations, you live for the now, and you’re all about savoring the moment.

But here’s the hard reality: social media, smartphones, and being in-somewhat-constant-contact are not the exception anymore, they’re the norm. Facebook or #DeleteFacebook, there will ALWAYS be some new platform for us to use and abuse.

Whether you’re looking to grow your business or are the average social media user catching up on cute baby/puppy pics and posting funny memes, the social media overwhelm factor is loud and proud and REAL. It’s not just that social media is a distraction – it’s that it makes us question how true our truths really are.

Today on the WANTcast, a few solid social media tips + strategies to follow (ha, no pun intended) so you can have your life and post it, too.

Today's guest is one of the coolest chicks I know (and you too, soon!), and a conversation that's a LONG time coming: scholar/writer/teacher/activist Natalia Mehlman Petrzela.


Natalia is a historian of contemporary American politics and culture and is currently writing a book on American fitness culture. She is the author of Classroom Wars: Language, Sex, and the Making of Modern Political Culture, and the co-host of Past Present Podcast, a show that turns hindsight into foresight by examining what's going on in America today through a historical lens. Natalia is Associate Professor of History at The New School, a co-founder of wellness education program Healthclass 2.0 and a Premiere Leader of intenSati, a fitness class that combines cardio with positive affirmations to make the ultimate uplifting workout. 

In this episode we talk about (and, we go there) gun violence and talking to kids about what's going on in an "appropriate" way, where a quest for happiness and "following your bliss" really came from and if it's actually serving us, making wokeness more than a gimmick, locker room talk (no, not in THAT way), feminism/activism's place in the wellness industry, and so, SO much more.

We’re all equipped with a Through Line; something we’re wonderful at and are meant to give to the world. And while some people might suggest mantras or affirmations to learn a new internal language, it’s my FIRM BELIEF that you can’t shift your self-talk without finding your Through Line first.

Learn how to define your Through Line: an important building block when it comes to tackling your negative self-talk. Today on the WANTcast, the #1 tool we've got on Women Against Negative Talk.

We're back in action, baby!! I can’t think of a better guest to kick off Season Three (which, by the way, will be 20 episodes and now run every other week instead of every three weeks) than author and host Katie Dalebout.

In this episode, Katie and I talk about major transitions, navigating change (when you don’t have a high threshold for change), moving across the country and what it’s taught us, why constant growth and goal-chasing isn’t always a good thing, the value in doing what doesn’t feel like yourself, and so much more (including a topic I was really excited to dive into with her: INTERSECTIONAL WELLNESS).

Katie is the host of the Let It Out Podcast and the author of Let It Out: A Journey Through Journaling (Hay House 2016). Katie is a writer and podcast host focusing on self-care, self-awareness, and self-expression for the greater good. Through her speaking and writing, she aims to help people develop a positive image of their bodies by embracing their creativity and personality outside of their physicality.
