  • Side Chat: Passion Profiles & The scale of ambition

    15/10/2021 Duración: 39min

    At the very end of Chapter 7 of Forever Alone (tiny spoiler alert, I guess!), I said:   We don’t all have the same amount of ambition in every area of life, and that’s OK. Some of us are perfectly content with a small, modest townhouse: Comfortable, safe, not flashy, but warm and homey. Honestly, my career ambitions are probably somewhere in that realm—it matters to me, but it’s not where my big, big dreams have ever lived. But man, I’ve got skyscraper ambitions when it comes to love. And I’m not talking some ugly thing that doesn’t even win skyscraper of the year award in Architectural Digest. It’s gotta be beautiful and impressive and very much larger than life. I think I might have more ambition in love than just about anyone I know.   I’ve been sitting with this and thinking about it so much that I decided it deserved more than just a single paragraph of attention.   So, in this month’s brand-new Side Chat Kristen and I are digging into …   How Passion Profiles show up outside of your career—in relations

  • Healing burnout through creativity with Kara Guilfoyle

    08/10/2021 Duración: 01h55s

    I’m as guilty as anyone else of saying that I value creativity, but then as soon as life gets busy, it’s the first thing I throw on the backburner.    It doesn’t help that many of us got the message (from our parents, from society at large, from wherever) that creativity in adulthood is kind of frivolous and should, at best, be relegated to a side hobby.    Whenever I find myself ignoring my creative side in favor of more “productive” things, I try to remember this quote from Brené Brown:   “Creativity has to be cultivated. Unused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgment, sorrow, shame. We are by nature creative. It gets lost along the way.” Kara Guilfoyle can attest to just how true this is! After years of working herself into exhaustion in the intense, fast-paced, emotionally exhausting medical world, she finally realized that the best way to heal her burnout and make her feel whole again was to reignite her artistic side.    Listen in as I ask Kara about her evolving

  • Dear Krachel: How do I find happiness at a job that underpays me?

    01/10/2021 Duración: 41min

    Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, our monthly advice segment where we answer listener questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself.   This month we answered questions from:   Jane, who wants to encourage more feminine energy in the workplace, but is running up against an issue. How do you communicate the idea of feminine energy to male co-workers who don’t get it, and who might find their masculinity threatened? Yuba Love, who quit her old job, moved to a new state, a recently started a new job in a completely different industry. But, in taking the job, she also took a BIG step backward in salary. How can she silence the inner critic that’s mad she isn’t making more money, and see this new job as the potential big opportunity it is?    We also got an update from Tribe of One, a listener whose question we answered back in November 2020. Find out what happened when she confronted those important people

  • Forever Alone Chapter 7: Stories & Skyscrapers

  • Message from the Universe: All you have to do is show up

    24/09/2021 Duración: 25min

    Honing your intuition is one of the most important parts of getting clear on who you are, what you want, and where you’re headed. Without it, you’re like a GPS with bad reception — you’re not going to get very clear guidance, and you may end up driving in circles.   But honing your intuition can take time and practice, so sometimes it’s nice to piggyback off of another GPS you can trust, even if it’s just long enough to check your directions.    So, in that spirit, here’s another Message from the Universe episode for you! Tune in if you need a little clarity, guidance, or just a fun pick-me-up.    Today we pulled a few cards from The Enchanted Map deck by Colette Baron-Reid. One or all has a message for you — come find out what it is!    This one made us SCREAM, so definitely come find out why.

  • Forever Alone Chapter 6: Covid & Copping Out

    22/09/2021 Duración: 45min

    If you can believe it, we’ve reached the penultimate chapter of Forever Alone! And it wouldn’t be an epic story if there wasn’t an intense ramp up to a big season finale, hmm?   So, tune in to Chapter 6: Covid & Copping out, in which I …   Get called out so hard I break out in cold sweats Offend people at a wedding Surprise myself by getting a job And rant like my life depends on it   You know I love hearing your reactions, so after you’ve listened, leave a comment here or DM me on the Forever Alone site!   As always, this episode is available on the Clarity on Fire podcast feed, but I’d love it if you subscribed to the Forever Alone feed and listened there!    And of course, if you haven’t yet, It would mean a lot if you’d leave a 5-star rating and review!

  • Side Chat: What we *actually* do for our mental health every day

    17/09/2021 Duración: 44min

    I’ve gotta admit, there’s something fun about those “what do you eat in a day?” or “what’s in your bag?” videos that you’ll often find celebrities doing on YouTube. Of course, I highly doubt what’s being curated for YouTube is real — their bags are probably a whole lot more embarrassing, and their food choices more realistic, than what you see online.   Kristen and I are about as far from celebrities as you can get, but there can still be a bit of a ~mystique~ around people you don’t really know, IRL. In the past 3.5 years, we’ve published over 300 episodes of the podcast! And if you didn’t know any better, you might think that we’ve somehow managed to integrate every bit of wisdom from each of them.     But much like a famous chef with a glossy cookbook who rarely makes those meals (and eats oatmeal for breakfast every day instead), we definitely aren’t always walking our talk!   So, in this month’s brand-new Side Chat, we’re getting into what the two of us actually do every day for our mental health. We got

  • Learning to let go of control with Diana La Femina

    10/09/2021 Duración: 01h11min

    I once told Kristen, and I quote, “I’d rather my life be harder and more complicated than necessary, but still happen on my terms, rather than it be easier but not go the way I’ve envisioned.” Charming, I know!   What can I say? I’m a Hermione-Granger type know-it-all with a penchant to grab onto something and insist that I know when, how, and why it’s supposed to happen … and then get indignant when it doesn’t go my, naturally.   Wouldn’t it be easier to, I dunno, release control over the unknown and chill out? Yes! It would. But that’s not as easy as it sounds, which is why I’ll never stop having conversations about how to let go—I need constant reminders. And I suspect you do, too.   So, in this month’s brand-new interview with a normal person, tune in as I chat with Diana, a former-client-turned-friend, about how she learned to let go of control. We got into…   Why Diana was tripping up on how to put the concept of feminine energy into practice. How an early experience with chronic illness created her pa

  • Dear Krachel: How do I talk to people who believe crazy stuff?

    03/09/2021 Duración: 40min

    Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, our monthly advice segment where we answer listener questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself.   This month we answered questions from:   A Huge Fan Forever, who’s been offered a new job that seems great, but is really nervous considering they got let go a few years ago. Are the nerves a sign they should pause and reconsider, or just a symptom of being burned once before? Brie, who listened to our Side Chat from this month about why you don’t need motivation, as well as our Side Chat from last month about how to actually do feminine energy—but now she’s confused! How can it be true that you can’t wait for motivation to strike while being more passive and allowing things to happen naturally? Theresa, whose family’s extreme political beliefs enrage her. As someone new to speaking up for herself, how does she push back on the crazy stuff her family believes?   Come le

  • Forever Alone Chapter 3: Exes & Existential Crisis

    01/09/2021 Duración: 34min

    Last week I took you on a journey through the heartbreak and awkwardness of high school and college—I know I made at least one of you cry, so I consider that a success—and now we’re onto Chapter 3 of Forever Alone and (dramatic pause) adulthood.    And if you thought becoming an adult made me any more clear, confident, or “together” than I was as a teenager, you’d be very mistaken. Here’s a preview of what you’re about to hear:   That time Kristen and I weren’t on good terms for 8 months Bringing home the Puppy From Hell (sorry, Scarlett) and why it woke me up Getting back together with an ex-boyfriend … oops Quitting my job and running out of money … bigger oops   This episode is available on the Clarity on Fire podcast feed, but I’d love it if you subscribed to the Forever Alone feed and listened there!

    If you’re anything like us, we’re pretty sure you loooove a good personality assessment. There’s nothing quite like getting your geek on with something that cracks a new code on the human experience.   We’ve been hearing a lot about Human Design for the past couple years—from clients, friends, and fellow coaches—but we hadn’t done any deeper digging yet. So instead of try to read about it online (and end up overwhelmed and confused … which we quickly did) we invited an expert to teach us what we need to know!   Listen in as Rachel and Human Design expert Sara Bacon get into…   What Human Design actually is and how it works The five basic types you could possibly be, and how common/rare each is How each of the five types processes information and makes decisions  The hang-ups and growth areas you might experience in life (we talked about career and dating examples!) according to your type Where to get started to make Human Design feel more approachable   Come leave a comment after you’ve listened to share yo

    25/08/2021 Duración: 42min

    Thank you all so much for the outpouring of support, comments, and love I got last week for my birthday and the release of Forever Alone! I’ve had SO much fun putting this out into the world, and hearing your feedback has been the cherry on top.   I’m back this week with Chapter 2: Proms & Palpitations—where I’m dialing it back to 2002 and pressing play on my relationship history, starting with high school. I got into…   How a first heartbreak can define how you see yourself, and your future relationship patterns, LONG after your wounds have healed. The inception of me thinking my mental health was something a boy could solve. Fracturing into two people—a girl who bought into love and fantasy and an adult who believed in practicality and checking the right boxes. Why it became so easy for me to believe you can’t “have it all” with one person.   This episode is available on the Clarity on Fire podcast feed, but I’d love it if you subscribed to the Forever Alone feed and listened there!

  • Side Chat: Why you don’t need motivation

    20/08/2021 Duración: 37min

    A couple weeks ago one of my client’s asked, “Why is it so hard to get myself to do things that I KNOW are good for me? I really do want to eat healthy, exercise, not sit on the couch binging Netflix for hours after work … but finding the motivation is so hard. How do I get motivated??”   To which I replied, “How about we start by NOT trying to find motivation?”   In this month’s brand-new Side Chat, Kristen and I are diving into the perils of relying on motivation to get things done. We talked about …    Why we should all probably delete “motivation” from our vocabulary, in general A much better, and more reliable, source of fuel for getting important things done … that will propel you whether or not you “feel like it” in the moment How we can apply this new strategy to all the big areas of life – health, fitness, relationships, work, creativity, and more!   Come leave a comment after you’ve listened to share where in your life you’ve decided to toss out motivation!   FOREVER ALONE IS HERE!   In case you m

    It’s Rachel’s birthday! And if you’ve been following along, you know that also means that today she’s giving herself, and you, a big gift … the first chapter of Forever Alone: One introverted millennial’s half-agonizing, half-hopeful journey through singledom.   I’ve watched her pour a ton of time and energy into this—it’s been a true labor of love! I’m just as excited as you to listen in (because she hasn’t let me yet, haha).    Even though I haven’t heard it yet, I know for sure it’s going to be relevant to more than just single folks (though you should definitely share with your single friends). Knowing Rachel, she’s found a way to make it hit home for just about anyone who wants something that they haven’t yet figured out how to get. And also knowing Rachel, it’ll be funny and snarky and poignant and inspiring, in equal measure.   I asked her to give me a preview of what’s in this chapter, and she said she’s getting into:   The difference between seeing her singledom as her “fault” vs. her “responsibilit

    So … I did a thing. A BIG thing. And since it’s my (well, our) podcast, I’m allowed to make Kristen interview me about the big thing I’ve done. ;)   Back in January, when Kristen and I were trying out (and massively resisting) The Artist’s Way, an idea fell nearly fully formed, into my lap:   I want to create my own podcast about my ridiculously long, weird, confusing, painstaking journey through singledom. I knew immediately how I wanted it to sound, what stories I wanted to tell, what the art could look like, what the chapters would be called … I just needed to sit down and actually make it.   The idea was so potent that it wouldn’t let me sleep, for nights in a row, until I started writing it all down—it poured out, almost faster than I could keep up with.    I’ve been working on it in fits and bursts ever since, and next Wednesday, August 18—my birthday, as a matter of fact—I’m dropping the first episode of my new miniseries, Forever Alone: One introverted millennial’s half-agonizing, half-hopeful journey

    Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, our monthly advice segment where we answer listener questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself.   This month we answered questions from:   Your Biggest Man Fan, who has achieved some pretty spectacular things in life: Climbing out of poverty, losing 130 pounds, and being married for 20 years, to name a few! But now that his weight loss has stabilized and he’s no longer climbing the ladder at a corporate job, he’s finding it hard to enjoy his success—How do you feel good about yourself when you’re no longer measuring your progress with numbers and metrics? Heartbroken & Confused, whose trust in her husband has been shattered after learning he’s been lying to her for three years about something very significant. He doesn’t understand why she’s so upset … is she crazy for making a big deal out of it?   We choose to answer just two questions this time, because we kn

    A lot of us know for sure when we’re up in our heads—over-thinking, spinning with anxiety, acting like life is a formula that you can solve if you analyze it long enough.    And most of us probably know by now that there are other places you can be, besides the mind … like the body, or your intuition.    But making the journey from mind to body or intuition is daunting and confusing, especially when you’re stuck in your head.   So, in this month’s Side Chat we’re diving into a practical way to reorient your life so that your mind, body, and soul are all in balance! We got into…   Why anxiety and over-thinking usually means you’ve given your mind the totally wrong job How to think of mind, body, and soul as different parts of a company, and what their proper roles actually are Some examples of how us, and clients, have applied this idea to their lives with great results (and big relief)   Leave a comment after you’ve listened and share how you’re going to bring your mind, body, & spirit back into balance
