  • How to adapt & keep the faith during uncertainty with R.A.Williams

    08/05/2020 Duración: 01h08min

    We’ve all been living in this strange new world for a few months now, complete with stay-at-home orders, face masks, and social distancing. And many of us are settling into whatever version of normal we can find. And yet, there’s this lingering uncertainty that we’re all facing, both personally and globally. When will this pandemic end? Will I be able to keep my job? Will anyone I love get sick? What about my plans for later in the year? How long until I can travel to see my friends and family again? Will life ever go back to the way it was? R.A.Williams was already in the exciting but unsteady early stages of starting a new business when the pandemic hit and piled another heaping serving of uncertainty onto her plate. But instead of feeling crippled by overwhelm, she’s remained optimistic, learned to adapt, and generally done an admirable job of keeping the faith that things are all working out. Kristen wanted to hear how she’s maintained her positive outlook in the midst of so much uncertainty. In this mont

  • Message from the Universe with Francisca Hernandez

    05/05/2020 Duración: 49min

    You’re in for a treat today! Instead of us whipping out one of our oracle decks like we’ve been doing every-other-Tuesday for a while now, we decided to bring in some bigger guns, so to speak, to deliver a message from the Universe to you today. Our friend Francisca Hernandez, who you might remember from her normal person interview, as well as her expert interview about learning to meditate, is back (and has officially claimed the title of “most frequent Clarity on Fire podcast guest”) with tarot cards in hand to give us all some much-needed guidance. Francisca delivered two messages, and one of them is meant specifically for you! Click here to see the card spreads after you’ve listened. And we’d love to hear from you after this episode! Leave a comment to let us know which message you got, and how it resonated with you.

  • Dear Krachel: I care too much and it’s making me miserable!

    01/05/2020 Duración: 33min

    Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, a 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. On this episode, we’re answering questions from: Cassie, who can’t help but feel bad that she’s able to stay afloat right now, given how many people are struggling and suffering. How can she ease the guilt she feels for doing well when others aren’t? Jamie, who is on her third job in a row where she’s putting too much into it and caring too much—to the point where it’s making her miserable. How can she care less in a healthy way? Tracey, who just got laid off but says her immediate reaction was relief! Should she be concerned that she was relieved to lose her job in a time like this? After you’ve listened, leave us a comment to let us know how our advice for these three listeners resonated with you! Want to submit a question for our June episode of Dear Krachel? Fill out th

  • Magic 8-Ball: The grief of transitions

    28/04/2020 Duración: 46min

    It’s time for another “Magic 8-Ball” episode! AKA, where we shake up the nearly-200 episodes we’ve released in the past two years, and the one that rises to the surface has a message that you needed to hear today. Today’s episode is a side chat from September 2018 about the grief of transitions. It’s one of my (Rachel’s) favorite episodes we’ve ever done, and very relevant to what we’re all experiencing right now. Here’s what I said when we first published this one: Hello from the other side … of 30. It’s been a month since I left my 20s, and I’m (Rachel) honestly still processing this milestone. I didn’t expect it to bring up so much grief — anger, frustration, sadness, and waves of anxiety and depression. And while I’ve been riding those waves, it’s become obvious that a lot of people around me are also battling that same current, just for different reasons. So, this mutual experience got me thinking about big life transitions. What do they have in common? How do we ride them out? Why are they so emotional?

  • The magic of thinking like a happily single woman with Shani Silver

    24/04/2020 Duración: 01h13min

    *Cue Destiny’s Child* All the women, who independent, throw your hands up at me. All the honeys, who making money, throw your hands up at me. Sometimes as woman (especially if you’re over 30) it’s easy to gloss over everything you’ve accomplished in life—finding a career you enjoy, evolving as a person, developing deep friendships, making an impact in your community, eating well, staying fit—if you still haven’t attained a romantic relationship. And the world will certainly validate you on that front. From well-meaning family who ask why you’re still single, to your married friends who think you should “try matchmaking or speed dating! It could be fun!!” … the silent implication is often “your relationship status needs to be fixed.” And when it feels like you need fixing, that makes you feel a little broken. On this month’s interview with an expert, Rachel sits down with Shani Silver, the host of a Single Serving Podcast. Shani spent 10 years being single and miserable until she made a profound shift and star

  • Message from the Universe: The only constant is change

    21/04/2020 Duración: 21min

    It’s that time again! Every-other-Tuesday, as long as we’re all stuck in quarantine, we’re whipping out one of our woo-woo oracle decks and pulling a few cards for all of us. In times like these, it can be especially hard to tune into your intuition and receive guidance. Fear and uncertainty create a LOT of noise, both internally and externally! And, ironically, it’s exactly when we’re most afraid and unsure that we most need to be able to receive wisdom and inspiration. So, if you’re having a hard time getting calm, quieting your mind, and tuning in (understandable, if so!), we’re doing what witches do best and conjuring a message from the Universe for you today. We pulled 3 cards from one of our oracle card decks, and one of them has a message about something you need help with or answers about! Click here to see the cards, as well as read the description of each! After you listen, come leave a comment to share which card you got and how the message landed with you!

  • Side Chat: Copping out vs. letting yourself off the hook

    17/04/2020 Duración: 43min

    Life is hard. We know this now, maybe more than ever. And we all know that getting what you want isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes you’ve got to do crap you don’t want to do because it’s good for you, and it helps you get to the good stuff in life. So, if we’re struggling to commit to something difficult, does that mean we’re copping out? Shouldn’t we just suck it up and get on with it, because yeah, life is hard but we’re resilient and capable of doing hard things? Maybe. But also … maybe not. On this brand-new side chat, we’re teasing apart the difference between copping out and letting yourself off the hook. We talked about… A thing Rachel was for sure copping out about, and another thing that she’s still struggling to figure out. A thing Kristen thought she was copping out about, but realized she needed to let herself off the hook for. The signs and indicators that you need to let yourself off the hook, vs. when you need to be an adult and just do the thing. After you’ve listened, leave

  • Magic 8-Ball: 7 questions to ask yourself before saying yes to anything

    14/04/2020 Duración: 18min

    In case you hadn’t heard, every-other-Tuesday we’re publishing “Magic 8-Ball” episodes! AKA, we shake up the nearly-200 episodes we’ve released in the past two years, and the one that rises to the surface has a message that you needed to hear today. Today’s episode is a blog from March 2018 that’s especially for all of you to default to saying “yes” to everything, and then feel overwhelmed, resentful, and burnt out… As an introvert who’s also a recovering people pleaser, it still gives me a small thrill of rebelliousness to say no to things. That’s probably because in years past, I used to be a total yes girl. Before I’d fully accepted my more introverted nature (meaning I need a LOT of downtime and spaciousness, and I quickly get overwhelmed with too many plans), I was always overcommitting myself. And before I’d gotten my people-pleasing ways (mostly) in check, my fear of disappointing people was intense. So without thinking, I’d automatically say yes to work projects, social invitations, favors, and reques

  • Refuse to choose with Rachel Lowe

    10/04/2020 Duración: 01h03min

    This one goes out to all of you who feel like making a choice, any choice, is hard. Who are these mysterious people who just … decide things? Without any angst, or second-guessing, or spinning out, or FOMO, or shiny object syndrome?? Rachel Lowe can’t relate! Which is why she’s this month’s brand-new interview with a normal person. On this episode, Rachel E. And Rachel L. are getting into what it’s like to be someone who’s tried VERY hard to be decisive, but who just can’t be tamed. We talked about… The shame and brokenness that comes up when you’re someone who can’t make up your mind (“Why is it so hard for me, and so easy for other people??”) Being easily distractible, and grappling with FOMO. How Rachel is learning to embrace her Side Hustler nature, and the mental shifts that helped her get there. Why Side Hustlers may be better positioned for success in these weird times we’re currently living in than anyone! After you’ve listened, leave us a comment to let us know how Rachel’s advice for indecisive pe

    07/04/2020 Duración: 17min

    Two weeks ago, Rachel whipped out one of her woo-woo oracle decks and pulled a few cards for all of us. We got so many comments and messages saying how much you all liked it that we’ve decided to make it an every-other-Tuesday thing, at least while we’re all stuck in quarantine! In times like these, it can be especially hard to tune in to your intuition and receive guidance. Fear and uncertainty create a LOT of noise, both internally and externally!

  • Dear Krachel: How do I deal with life when I’m panicking?

    03/04/2020 Duración: 35min

    Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, a monthly advice segment where we answer audience questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself. Panic, depression, and fear turned out to be the theme of this month’s episode, which is appropriate given what we’re all weathering right now. We hope it’s exactly what you need to hear to address your own concerns about life, and the future. On this episode, we’re answering questions from: Multi-Trick Pony, who feels so trapped in their current job that they’re having panic attacks in their SLEEP. They’ve sent hundreds of applications for other jobs, but no one will give them a chance to move into a different field. How can they change that? Steven, who struggles with moderate-to-severe depression and is having a hard time coping at a new job. He’s not showing up as an ideal employee right now, and definitely doesn’t want to get fired, but (given past history) is also afra

  • Magic 8-Ball: Netflix is my secret life purpose

    31/03/2020 Duración: 18min

    In case you hadn’t heard, every-other-Tuesday we’re publishing “Magic 8-Ball” episodes! AKA, we shake up the nearly-200 episodes we’ve released in the past two years, and the one that rises to the surface has a message that you needed to hear today. Today’s episode is a blog from April, 2018 about our collective hang-up around what “creativity” means. Considering that a lot of us all of a sudden have a lot more time to be creative, it’s imperative that we give ourselves permission to actually do that. I’ve spent nearly three decades being mildly annoyed that real life gets in the way of fantasy. To me, fiction and art and music often feel more REAL and TRUE than the monotony of everyday life, with its bills and laundry and mountains of responsibilities. Could you make a case that maybe this is a PROBLEM? That I’m trying to escape reality and live in a perpetual state of denial? You probably could. But hey, I’m still paying my bills, and my laundry gets done, and I’m not shirking my responsibilities. So, cut m

  • How to use personality tests to change your life

    27/03/2020 Duración: 39min

    We all know that person. The one who’s read all the books, taken all the personality tests, and been to therapy for years but somehow is exactly the same as when they started? They could talk to you all day long about their issues—they know exactly why they are the way they are—but haven’t actually changed. None of us want to be that person. But going from intellectually understanding stuff to integrating that information and actually thinking, feeling, and behaving differently? That’s not an easy. People who “know things” are a dime a dozen. People who have integrated what they know are rare. And bridging that gap usually takes help. So, in this brand-new episode of the podcast we’re delving into how we, as coaches, use information that all of us love (personality tests) to actually help our clients change their feelings, beliefs, and behavior. We talked about… Our three favorite personality tests, ranked in order of usefulness. Which tests are most helpful according to your situation (not all tests make se

    In times like these it can be especially hard to tune in to your intuition and receive guidance. Fear and uncertainty create a LOT of noise, both internally and externally!

  • Side Chat: Why dating & job searching are the same thing

    20/03/2020 Duración: 57min

    We’ve had a few clients come to us recently with career conundrums they just could not figure out. They’d looked at it from every angle and were only getting more confused about what they should do. And yet, like magic, when we asked them to stop thinking of their job (either the one they have, or the one they want) like a job, and start thinking of it like a person they were dating, all of a sudden the answers appeared. Job searching and dating are almost exactly the same thing. And the sooner you adopt this mentality, the better off you’ll be (whether you’re “on the market” romantically or professionally speaking!). In this month’s brand-new Side Chat we’re getting into… Why desperation drives both lovers and employers away. How codependence shows up on the job search and on the dating scene. Why trying to be impressive on first dates and interviews is never going to work for you, and how to show up, instead. Setting the ground rules for how you expect to be treated in your career and in your romantic rela

  • Magic 8-Ball: Honing your intuition (& knowing when it’s really fear)

    17/03/2020 Duración: 01h04min

    In case you hadn’t heard, every-other-Tuesday we’re publishing “Magic 8-Ball” episodes! AKA, we shake up the nearly-200 episodes we’ve released in the past two years, and the one that rises to the surface has a message that you needed to hear today. Today’s episode is a Side Chat from last summer about how to hone your intuition (and tell the difference between that, and fear). Pretty relevant right now, don’t you think? So, imagine a dude pumping iron, except he only ever works out one arm. He’s basically a circus attraction with his one giant bicep on the right and a puny, atrophied bicep on the left. Well, this freak is all of us. Except the over-developed right arm is your logic/fear muscle, and the atrophied left arm is your feelings/intuition muscle. Most of us want to start working out that sad, deflated left arm, because we really want to let go, trust our intuition, and make decisions from a place of deeper knowing, but we have no idea how to do it. In this episode we got into: All of the ways you c

  • Recovering from addiction & self-hate with Adam Miller

    13/03/2020 Duración: 01h13min

    We all have our laundry lists of insecurities, self-doubts, and things we don’t particularly like about ourselves. But when those self-judgments turn into full-on self-hate, that can open the floodgates for all kinds of numbing, self-sabotaging behaviors. For Adam Miller, that manifested as drug addiction. Throughout his process of recovery, he learned that the best cure for self-sabotaging, addictive behaviors is learning how to like — and eventually love — himself again. Adam will be the first to tell you that cultivating self-love takes time, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to healing from years (or a lifetime!) of self-hate. But it’s a journey that just keeps feeling better and better, and life on the other side … well, you can hear Adam describe in his own words exactly how that feels! In this month’s interview with a normal person, Kristen and Adam talk about how to recover from self-hate and all its insidious side effects. They got into… A few of the many self-sabotaging side effects you mig

    Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, a monthly advice segment where we answer audience questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself. On this episode, we’re answering questions from: Miranda, who took the Passion Profile Quiz and can’t tell if she’s a “real” Thriver, or whether she’s only getting that result because she’s burnt out and resentful of working. Could she have a different Profile if she recovered from burnout? Jules, who wants to get better at feeling her feelings, but doesn’t want to indulge so much that she spirals out of control. How do you walk the line between having feelings and letting them run amuck? Eric, a single guy in his 20s who’s ready to start dating again. He wants to know how he can stand out on a dating app, beyond just “being himself.” After you’ve listened, leave us a comment to let us know how our advice for these three listeners resonated with you!

  • Magic 8-Ball: Masculine vs. Feminine Energy

    03/03/2020 Duración: 52min

    Every-other-Tuesday we’re going to be publishing “Magic 8-Ball” episodes. AKA, we shake up the nearly-200 episodes we’ve released in the past two years, and the one that rises to the surface has a message that you needed to hear today. For our inaugural Magic 8-Ball episode we’re re-releasing something from the very first day we launched this podcast! The original title was “How to work like a woman (in a world that doesn’t want you to).” It explores the push-pull between masculine and feminine energy, which is something you’re almost definitely struggling with, even if you haven’t been conscious of it. On this episode we talked about: Why “equality” doesn’t mean having to become masculine in order to succeed in your career. What “masculine” and “feminine” actually mean (we guarantee you’ve got some misconceptions on this one). Why you might be struggling with burn-out, fatigue, and overwhelm. How to go after freedom and flexibility, even if you feel trapped in a rigid environment. How to embrace your intuit

  • Making friends in adulthood with Shannon Egan & Inés Battistini

    28/02/2020 Duración: 01h04min

    A few weeks ago, we hosted a live online workshop about getting what you want in 2020. In typical fashion, the two of us were bouncing ideas and insights and jokes back and forth, and had a great time (and hopefully enlightened a couple people, too). But something that one of our attendees commented on stayed with us long after the hour was over. She said: “I have never had a female interaction like you two have. It’s wonderful to see, totally alien to me! :( That bond is so powerful and affirming. Thank you for being who you are, and doing that side by side.” She was 100% right. Having really solid friendships is powerful and life-affirming! And if we could, we’d wave a magic wand over all of you and grant you at least one soulmate-level-platonic-life-partner. But since we can’t manage that, we decided to whip out the big guns (or big wands, as it were): We’re doubling down by bringing another dynamic duo on the podcast to talk about all things friendship: Our friends Shannon Egan & Inés Battistini, who
