225 Just Giovanna: Breaking Through Barriers: Do This to Create the Results You Desire

By Giovanna Rossi | Oct 28, 2020 |

On the Well Woman Show this week, I am celebrating ten years of being in business for myself! In those ten years, I worked with many large academic and government institutions as well as non-profits and entrepreneurs. And what I realized is that when women are not supported to thrive and when their leadership is undermined, whole projects and communities are impacted.

Today, I want to tell you my story about starting my own business, and also I want to share a practice that I have only used with one-on-one clients with you in honor of my ten year anniversary!

Now is a great time to invest in your dreams and create what you desire in your life. You can learn more and register at this link: https://wellwomanlife.com/academy

Feel free to reach out to me, and let me know the results you found during your practice today at info@wellwomanlife.com.

223 Just Giovanna: How to Produce Long Lasting Positive Feelings Without Faking It

By Giovanna Rossi | Oct 16, 2020 |

How can you consistently produce positive feelings without faking it or somehow settling for being grateful just because “it could be worse”?

On the show today we’ll dive into gratitude through the lens of the Well Woman Framework. I’ll talk about how to avoid faking your gratitude and how to consistently produce long-lasting positive feelings that lead to taking action. This is not about conjuring up false gratitude or telling yourself you “should” be grateful for something.

When you identify social, political, or economic inequality that impacts you personally or impacts your community or the world, it’s important not to fall prey to the “well, it’s much better than it used to be – you should be grateful” narrative.

I’ll walk you through the exact activities I use in the Well Woman Academy, giving you a peek into the group coaching program I run for smart women changing the world.

219 In Conversation: How Black, Indigenous and Women of Color are Navigating Anti-racism (Part Four with Antonia Montoya and Giovanna Rossi)

By Giovanna Rossi | Sep 16, 2020 |

On the Well Woman Show this week, I share part four in a series of conversations with black, indigenous and women of color colleagues and friends, and together we explore anti-racism and racial justice – what it means not only in the big picture but how our daily lives are impacted, what we’re reading, what we’re doing and where we go from here.

This week, I’m in conversation with Antonia Montoya, and we explore racial justice from our unique perspectives and lived experiences. Antonia is a mental health therapist who specializes in walking alongside clients through grief, loss, addiction, and challenging life transitions. She supports her clients in the exploration and reconnection with themselves while teaching new practices for creating the change they seek in their lives. As a queer woman of color from Albuquerque, she has been a lifetime student of the traditional healing practices of her ancestors. She is committed to supporting her clients in their work, understanding the importance of continuing her own.

All the information shared today can be found at the show notes at wellwomanlife.com/219show

This special series on anti-racism is part of the #podcastersforjustice campaign.

We are podcasters united to condemn the tragic murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many many others at the hands of police. This is a continuation of the systemic racism pervasive in our country since its inception, and we are committed to standing against racism in all its forms.

We believe that to be silent is to be complicit.

We believe that Black lives matter.

We believe that Black lives are more important than property.

We believe that we have a responsibility to use our platforms to speak out against this injustice whenever and wherever we are witnesses to it.

In creating digital media we have built audiences that return week after week to hear our voices, and we will use our voices to speak against anti-blackness and police brutality, and we encourage our audiences to be educated, engaged, and to take action.

217 Just Giovanna: Celebrate the Little Things (and the Big!)

By Giovanna Rossi | Sep 2, 2020 |

What does it mean to celebrate? Is it something you do when you think you “deserve” a reward? Is it something you do and then regret it later or the next day? Do you save celebrations for “big” events or achievements?

On the Well Woman Show this week I’ll be sharing ten ways to celebrate without breaking the bank or indulging in unhealthy behavior.
