TNW28: the hurricane pod is a force of nature with Sophia Simon-Bashall

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview Sophia Simon-Bashall of the hurricane pod. 

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview Sophia Simon-Bashall of the hurricane pod. She shares her story of living with mental illness and how her podcast creates a community for others living the same life. Sophia is fabulous for many reasons, but what I love in particular is her mission to show that you can survive and thrive and cry with mental illness and there doesn’t need to be a heartwarming story about you beating it. The story can be that you’re living.

This is a great episode for everyone. Period, the end.

IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • About Sophia
  • Why Sophia loves music and how it helps her
  • Why she started the podcast
  • Why it’s important to tell the stories of people with mental illness who are living their lives

27. Dare to Blossom with Mary Lunnen

27. Dare to Blossom with Mary Lunnen

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview life coach Mary Lunnen of Dare to Blossom Life Coaching.

In this episode of the podcast, I interview life coach Mary Lunnen. Mary is such a breath of fresh air as a coach. I enjoy everything about her – how she thinks, how she coaches, and what she believes about the power of potential we each have. We talk about Mary herself, her bout with cervical cancer and then becoming a coach. We also talk about her personal coaching style, as well as what process you might undergo if you decided you wanted to work with a life coach. We talk through how you might know you need a life coach, what questions you can ask yourself, and how you can find the right person for you. Great episode! Mary quotes Anais Nin with “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom,” and I think that’s the perfect way to know if this episode is for you or not. If the risk of staying the same is more painful than blossoming, listen on.

IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • Mary’s story
  • Mary’s coaching philosophy including visualization, the magic carpet, and the power flower
  • How you might know you need a life coach
  • How you go about finding a life coach

Mary Lunnen

About Mary Lunnen

Mary Lunnen is a life coach living in Cornwall in the UK. She started out making and selling copper enamel jewelry, silk scarves, hand-stitched patchwork that she would sell as she traveled. Her life changed in 1994 when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer, and this journey eventually led her to life coaching, now named Dare to Blossom Life Coaching. Mary was inspired by the Anais Nin quote: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Her books include her first about her journey with cervical cancer, Flying in the Face of Fear: Surviving Cervical Cancer, and her 2010 follow-up Cervical Cancer: The Essential Guide. She also has her book on coaching, meant to demystify the practice, Dare to Blossom: Coaching and Creativity. Mary’s 2019 theme is “Pathway to Power,” and we’ll see both a mastermind and a new book this year. Follow her journey and get on her mailing list here. (scroll to the bottom of the page)

TNW24: Scattered but Sparkly with Sasha Gray

TNW24: Scattered but Sparkly with Sasha Gray

Sasha Gray from Scattered Sasha and I have a great conversation about giving grace, especially to ourselves, her accidental business, and how she started her famous live show.

It should be a crime to have as much fun as Sasha Gray and I had recording this episode. We laughed, we cried, we talked everything from weddings to booze (margaritas and whiskey, of course). The conversation’s a blast, and I hope you enjoy it.

Sasha and I met in a Facebook group, and shortly afterward, I was planning my first summit. Carrie Sharpe of He Says, She Says insisted that I have Sasha as a guest, and the rest, as they say, is history. Since then, Sasha has appeared in my summits, as a guest speaker in my group, and even as one of my popular Notable Woman Live! guests.

In this episode, we talk about her accidental business, how she cultivated her tribe (her following), and how she started her live show, and much, much more! I hope you enjoy this episode and don’t forget to join The Society of Notable Women if you want to continue the conversation! And of course, Sasha has a great gift for you! Head on over to get her “Your Journey: 5 Ways to Increase Daily Joy.”

IN THIS EPISODE, WE EXPLORE:

  • Why you can’t take yourself too seriously
  • How Sasha became known as Sasha Gray (spoiler: it’s a pseudonym)
  • How Sasha chose to name her page “Lipstick, Margaritas, and Hairspray” (now Scattered Sasha)
  • How Sasha cultivated such a huge tribe (at the time of this recording, it was 239K now up to 255K)
  • How Sasha started an accidental business
  • The creation of the “unbreakable” token and its impact on people
  • Why we all need to give ourselves grace
  • How Sasha started her show (you can watch it here)
  • Sasha getting married at the racetrack
