  • 35. Releasing External Validation with Cat Hernandez, Partner at The Venture Collective

    17/12/2020 Duración: 35min

    Everyone’s felt it. The voice in your head reminding you that you don’t belong. That voice can be quiet at times and deafening at others, and it seems that the only way to shut it down is by gaining the validation of others. When someone validates you, those negative thoughts are silenced, but only temporarily. The real remedy is to commit to living consciously. In other words, to actively choose how you live your life without allowing others’ opinions to dictate your priorities. My guest today is Cat Hernandez. She is a Partner at The Venture Collective and a long time operator and investor. She believes that venture capitalists are responsible for investing in companies that are creating a positive impact and reducing inequality in society.

  • 33. When Failure Equals Success with Tina Cheng, Founder & CEO, Capsul Jewelry

    19/10/2020 Duración: 37min

    The fear of failure is often more paralyzing than actually failing. Fear is what holds us back, not failure. Fear keeps us from living our truth and acting on new ideas. Failure gives us the opportunity to learn from our mistakes and apply our learnings to something better. Where would any of us be if we always let the fear of failure be bigger than the opportunity to succeed? When we visualize the future, our anxieties can feel so physically heavy on our shoulders that it keeps us stagnant. Often, we look at other people, and deeply believe that we could never do what they did. In this Enoughness episode, Lisa chats with Tina Cheng, a serial entrepreneur and mother, about how she’s shed the fears of starting a new business and how she’s allowed herself to explore the unknown. They explore how building multiple businesses and experiencing both success and failure shaped her into the woman she is today.

  • 32. Rewriting Modern Love Stories with Vika Viktoria

    13/10/2020 Duración: 55min

    Traditional love stories make us believe that two people fall in love and live happily ever after. The reality of modern dating is the exact opposite -  failed communication, suboptimal timing, bad texting, cheating, and misunderstandings - every once in awhile a love story succeeds, but now, even the definition of a successful relationship is up for interpretation. A ring on her finger and a nice house are no longer the ultimate goals, and as more women prioritize their careers and become financially independent, what does a real partner look like?  In this episode, Lisa chats with award-winning storyteller Vika Viktoria about how they are reclaiming their voices and re-writing their own life stories - romantically, professionally, and personally. They discuss: How to bring love into your life without without a partner Why healthy masculinity is so important How to set boundaries and prioritize self-worth and respect in dating The concept of antifragility and how to use it in re-writing your n

    07/10/2020 Duración: 45min

    Every narrative we tell ourselves benefits us in some way - even the negative ones. It's easy to take the role of the victim. When we normalize negative self-talk and blaming other people for our problems, we forsake the burden of responsibility for our own lives. It's easier to sit back, but in doing so we also give up our #power and #agency.   How the feeling of not being enough drives us How to replace passive negativity with proactive confidence and action How to identify and release narratives that are no longer serving us How to achieve "Fierce Focus" to prioritize the things that matter most  In this week's episode of the #Enoughness podcast Lisa conducts a live coaching session with several female leaders in her coaching program.

    30/09/2020 Duración: 50min

    Without realizing it, most of us fall into the rat race. Chasing a life that we believe is shinier, better than our present one. But what is it that you're chasing? Is it more money? More recognition? More awards? And if so, what would attaining those things bring you? Would it make you feel validated? Would it make you feel powerful and successful?  In this episode, we discuss how to examine our goals and release our attachments to external validation and ego. Once we do, we can discover that these are sensations and feeling states that we already have within us. Nothing external can categorize or define us.  Shalini Sarena Bahad is an international mindset coach, yoga teacher, holistic healer and entrepreneur. She believes deeply in the importance of taking care of yourself and keeping healthy along your growth and ascension journey.  We discuss: Why releasing your attachment to the ego is so important Why focusing on future ‘Potential’ can be detrimental to the present How to slow dow

    15/09/2020 Duración: 33min

    Lisa realizes she has been contradicting her own advice around enoughness. In her first public confession as an overachiever, she owns up to the reality that she continues to struggle with not feeling good enough, and even when she thought she overcame the feeling, it came back to slap her in the face. In the midst of trying to scale her business, write multiple books, and launch several new projects, Lisa faces the hard fact that sometimes trying to do it all doesn’t lead to more success, just more exhaustion. She discusses: Unhealthy patterns of perfectionism and self-imposed pressure How workaholism is like digging your own grave Feeling shitty when you compare yourself to other people Why being an introvert is hard How wellness and self-care “experts” can make you feel inadequate Trying to be present and enjoy life while still striving for big goals Work with Lisa: https://lisawang.co Subscribe: https://herpower.substack.com Follow: https://www.instagram.com/lisacarmenwang/ --- Support this

  • 26. The Power of Curiosity with CEO of Hint, Kara Goldin

    15/06/2020 Duración: 01h46s

    Curiosity has the power to remind us that there is always more to learn, there's always more ahead of us. Oftentimes when we fall into the trap of negative thinking, we do so because we let cynicism take over our perceptions rather than allowing ourselves to remain curious about the lessons that we can learn from any experience whether positive or negative. In many instances, curiosity helps us overcome fear even more than bravery. When you start following curiosity, it becomes an exciting adventure rather than an external pressure to achieve or fit in. There's no such thing as overnight success, and there's no easy route to finding your passion or purpose. All of these take time and a consistent curiosity about all that life has to offer. Today's guest is Kara Goldin. She is the founder and CEO of hint, a US flavored water company that is valued at over $100M. She has been named Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, one of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs, Forbes’ 40 Over 40, and more.

    There has never been a more critical need for empathetic leaders who truly care about their communities. Leadership is no longer about being the toughest or the strongest.

  • 24. How to Create Lasting Love with CEO of Coffee Meets Bagel, Dawoon Kang

    25/05/2020 Duración: 50min

    In his book, The Art of Loving, Philosopher Erich Fromm wrote, “There is hardly any activity, any enterprise, which is started with such tremendous hopes and expectations, and yet, which fails so regularly, as love.” This is especially true in modern love and dating. We have never had so many options to find love, and yet have never been so lost in knowing how to cultivate it. Too often we jump into dating without actually having any knowledge around what it is that we want. We jump in expecting that if it's the right love, It will be effortless. But the truth is just like anything else worth pursuing, finding and creating a lasting love requires work, effort, and commitment. If we want to find the best person for us, we need to first commit to being the best version of ourselves. The energy we put out, is the energy we will attract. Dawoon Kang is the Co-founder and CEO of Coffee Meets Bagel, a dating app that prides itself on helping users create meaningful connections. In this episode, Dawoon talks about:

    In the final moments of the presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was answering a question when Donald Trump quietly called her a “nasty woman”. Clinton may not have flinched at the words, but the rest of the world did. Trump’s mumbled insult stirred up an online storm. Amanda Brinkman’s simple, clever idea transformed into a call for solidarity among women across the globe. A spur-of-the-moment idea, she decided to put “Nasty Woman” on a t-shirt, put them up for sale, and donate half the proceeds to Planned Parenthood.

  • 17. Why Negotiations Are Never About Money with Betsy Pearce

    28/06/2018 Duración: 48min

    Success is almost never a straight path. In fact, the things we think we want - money, fame, power - are rarely the things that actually make us happy. Today’s guest, Betsy Pearce, hailed as as one of the most powerful people in fashion, has been the legal deal-maker for top fashion icons like Carolina Herrera and Alexander McQueen, the creative directors for Bottega Veneta, Nina Ricci, and Dior Homme and more. When it comes to the types of high-stakes negotiations she deals with, she says the biggest mistake people make is thinking that it’s just about the money. It’s usually not about the money, it’s about proving someone wrong. Ego, emotion, loneliness, or rejection all play a part. As such, she wants us to get comfortable with the idea that sometimes, we don’t know what we don’t know. We learn by taking steps, and when we realize they aren’t the right ones, it’s okay to ask for help. Studies have shown that happiness often stems from a sense of community and being needed. However, there is no reason f
