WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast

Welcome to the WANTcast: The Women Against Talk Podcast — lessons in moving forward fearlessly and spreading the (good) word. In each episode, writer, speaker, coach and WANT founder Katie Horwitch unpacks tips, tools, motivation and inspiration to help you shift your self-talk: the internal narrative you have on loop 24/7 that tells you who you are and who you should be. Dive into topics such as confidence, fear, trust, body image, self-doubt, self-worth, relationships, career, friendships, social issues, and more - and walk away from each episode with actionable steps to shift your narrative from reactive to proactive (as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough). You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're meant to be. New episodes every other Tuesday. Get the show notes + more at womenagainstnegativetalk.com

Today is the final celebration in our October Book Birthday party — and we are ending with a BANGER of an episode. Today’s guest is a longtime friend of the pod, and a true force to be reckoned with.

Karen Walrond is an author, leadership coach, activist and attorney. An avid photographer and journaler, Walrond's writing and coaching have helped thousands of people around the world find meaning and purpose in their lives. Karen and her work have been featured on Brené Brown's Unlocking Us podcast, PBS, Huffington Post, CNN, and The Oprah Winfrey Show, and her award-winning blog, Chookooloonks, is a lifestyle, inspiration, and photography destination.

Karen is the author of The Beauty of Different, the Lightmaker’s Manifesto — and most notably for this conversation, her latest book, RADIANT REBELLION: Reclaim Aging, Practice Joy, and Raise a Little Hell.

Radiant Rebellion is an investigation into how we can reclaim aging, cultivate joy, and resist ageism. As Karen says, internalized ageism--bias against our future selves--is not our only option; we can write a different story of aging than the one we've been handed. In this conversation we’ll dive into all the ways we get wrapped up in ageism without even realizing it, and how, exactly, to move forward.

Changing your life, living your best life...sure they're great goals, but how do you actually make change happen? And, moreover, LAST? How do you balance striving for more while also enjoying what's right in front of you?

Today's guest is Liz Moody: the host of the top-rated 'The Liz Moody Podcast,' author of bestselling books 'Healthier Together: Recipes for Two—Nourish Your Body, Nourish Your Relationships' and 'Glow Pops,' and content creator who has helped millions of people transform their lives. Her new book, '100 Ways to Change Your Life: The Science of Leveling Up Health, Happiness, Relationships & Success', draws from Moody’s more than a decade of experience in the health and wellness world, serving as a new kind of personal development book — one that empowers readers to craft their unique, best life based on the habits they want to form, the problems they want to solve, and the parts of their life they want to take to the next level.

IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT:

  • What people get wrong about your "best" life and what they should be focusing on instead
  • Science-backed ways to create habits that stick
  • A (BIG) curveball Liz was thrown in the book publishing process and how she navigated her way through it
  • Liz's own moment when she knew her life needed to change — and why
  • How to build real motivation
  • ...and more!

With so many things influencing us every single moment, is it ever possible to be "free" from influence? Where do these influences even come from? And how do we begin to choose what's right for us in the midst of so many voices and factors that seem to be choosing it FOR us?

And...sort of related...how do you LAUNCH A BOOK on your own terms, free from the influence of industry expectations?

Today's incredibly timely guest is Jessica Elefante, and we're talking about ALL of this. Jess is a writer and [former bullshit] artist who has spent the last few decades examining what it means to be human in our modern world. She's the author of Raising Hell, Living Well: Freedom from Influence in a World Where Everyone Wants Something from You (including me). Her book came out this week, one week after WANT YOUR SELF...so think of this episode as our dual-birthday-party. We recorded this before either of our books were published, so you're getting to hear the behind-the-scenes from two authors who are IN IT.

Jess is the founder of acclaimed Folk Rebellion and a critic of today’s culture, and her award-winning talks, films, and work have been featured by Vogue, the Los Angeles Times, The Observer, Paper magazine, Wired, and more. In her previous life as a brand strategist, she was recognized as one of Brand Innovators’ 40 Under 40 and has been a guest lecturer at Columbia Business School and New York University. She’s influenced by the social, cultural, and technological circumstances of her life but mostly by her desire to lead a colorful one. She is no longer bullshitting.

A must listen for anyone and everyone navigating the landscape of what it means to build a life of your own in today's day and age. Which is us all.
