Get Dr. Rosie Kuhn’s FREE eBook!

When we’re on the cusp of a transformation, we are often very uncomfortable. We’re not content with our current lifestyle, but we don’t know exactly what to do to find that happiness. Our ideas about our identity and purpose are about to shift, and this can be a very scary prospect. The one thing worse than feeling stagnant is change: we want things to remain the same, because we don’t want to throw away all of our hard work. Who will we be without our achievements? According to Dr. Rosie Kuhn, when it’s time to make that change, “there’s a deconstruction process that you go through.” And the way to get through that deconstruction process is to shut off the external, and look within to find your true calling.

In this episode I speak with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, preeminent thought leader, coach and leadership facilitator. Dr. Rosie is a speaker, author, and facilitator. As a Transformational Life and Business Coach, she encourages her clients to think beyond their limited sense of reality. Her books, blogs, videos and podcasts engage and inspire her audience to question the source of their decision making. Dr. Rosie is considered to be a preeminent thought leader in the field of Transformation and Transformational Coaching. She is the author of many books, including Self-Empowerment 101, and newly published Cultivating Spirituality in Children. As the founder of The Paradigm Shifts Coaching Group, Dr. Rosie specializes in empowering individuals to fearlessly embrace transformation. She has worked in the field of transformation for over 20 years. In this episode, Dr. Rosie and I talk about how you can tell when it’s time to make a shift in your life, how to move away from fear-based decision making and lead with fierce love, and why it’s so important to embrace, rather than resist, transformation.

  • How Dr. Rosie inspires her clients to embrace change
  • Why, if you want to be a successful leader, you need to be willing to experience transformations

More About Dr. Rosie

Before founding the Transformational Coaching Training at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Dr. Rosie working for 30 years as a life coach, marriage and family therapist, spiritual guide. She began her career as a clinical therapist for addiction recovery programs, and founded the The Paradigm Shifts Coaching Group in 1999.

Dr. Rosie helps people to find the right questions to ask themselves to begin the process of transformation.  “Most people are not asking the right questions,” she explains, adding that then the “source of the insecurity is never revealed and expressed.” Instead, people will often live in cycles of anxiety, knowing that the way they are leading their lives is no longer fulfilling, but not having the tools or direction to make whatever change may be needed.

The most difficult part about making a life change is the vulnerability that is required. As a coach, she says that it is her job to “not support you in avoiding that vulnerability.” Instead, she helps her clients to answer the question: “how do you move forward even though you feel vulnerable, even though its messy?”

This work is essential for anyone who seeks to lead others or wants to find success. “To be truly a leader in the world means you have to face the stuff that’s messy,” Dr. Rosie explains, “because you’re going to lead people through messiness.”

073 How to Get What You Need by Asking for It with Emily Bennett

For anyone trying to start a business or new project, there’s a juggling act to be had. We need to rearrange our schedules and lives to make sure we can put sufficient energy into this new endeavor. Generally, that means taking away some time or energy from other responsibilities, or, as Emily Bennett of Baby Blastoff! has found, asking for help.

Emily Bennett is the founder of owner of Baby Blastoff!, a children’s clothing line aimed to transcending gender stereotype messages found in most children’s clothing.  Her clothing is USA-made, unisex, printed from Emily’s original artwork, and made from high quality fabric. Emily sources all materials from local, reputable businesses, and sustainably manufactures all products in Albuquerque, New Mexico, supporting her community economically. Emily has her masters in education, and prior to starting Baby Blastoff she taught kindergarten, first, and second grade for five years. In this episode, Emily and I talk about the challenges of being a solopreneur, how to create a schedule that allows you to nurture your business and your family or personal life, and why it is so important to encourage gender equality at a young age.

 

What You’ll Discover in This Episode:

  • What Emily does to maintain motivation as a solopreneur
  • How Emily is able to create a schedule that allows her to fill her roles both in her family and in her business
  • How you can use your creative skills to sell your product, business, or self

 

More About Emily

Emily began her business around the time that her son was born. In looking for clothing for him, she was shocked to see that so many of the clothing items available had phrases that blatantly perpetuated gender stereotypes, such as ““lock up your daughters,” or “tough guy.” “I can’t believe the messages we put on babies without thinking very much about how that impacts their lives and how others treat them.” Emily knew that other parents shared her dissatisfaction, so she decided to make clothing of her own.

Baby Blastoff! began in 2014, and seeks to create baby’s clothing with gender neutral or stereotype destroying messages. All of the clothing is meant for both boys and girls, though she hopes that she is able to encourage people to reexamine the words they use when speaking to any child. For her son and other boys, she “wants boys to have the message that they can be gentle. that’s part of being a boy too.” Emily explains, “we would all benefit from a world that was more equal.”

Emily’s business began at the same time that she began motherhood, and she quickly found that there simply wasn’t enough time in the day to take care of everything she needed to. She felt herself growing frustrated and resentful, and finally decided there needed to be a change. She and her family worked out a new schedule so that she could dedicate more time to her business. Right away, “that feeling of resentment melted away” and Emily was able to “get what I needed and take care of myself.”

For anyone hoping to start out on a business project on their own, Emily recommends that each day you ask yourself, “what can I do to feel productive today?” and be sure to ask for what you need both from your support system, and from yourself.

071 How to Help Others Without Taking Their Problems On as Your Own with Jill Leigh

When we feel close to burnout, self-care often becomes our last priority. We feel that we need to take care of every other detail first, and then we can get to working on ourselves. With that attitude, burnout is inevitable, and almost expected. To avoid this unhealthy cycle, energy healer Jill Leigh explains, we must put self-care first.

Today I speak with Jill Leigh. Jill is the founder and director of the Energy Healing Institute, a school that caters to seasoned integrative practitioners and those wishing to expand upon their energetic knowledge base. Jill’s abilities allow her to deeply connect with clients and shift their energy blocks, using her combination of clairvoyance, conscious channeling and energy practices. Her teaching style is organized, logical, hands-on and playful and delivered with absolute integrity and the highest standards of teaching protocols. In this episode Jill and I talk about how she came to understand her energy skills, what she does to avoid burnout, and how she is able to ‘turn off’ from her work to make sure she is maintaining balance in her life.

  • What Jill does when she’s feeling overworked to continue being productive and avoid burnout

More About Jill

Before Jill began her career as an energy healer, she worked for many years in the corporate world and ran her own business. She worked hard and constantly, and in hindsight she recognizes that she “did not have any sense of what it would look like to take care of myself.” Chronic fatigue and auto-immune issues began to wear her down, and she turned to energy work to help.

Jill’s experience with energy healing didn’t begin then, however. As a child she had deep connections with animals, and as an adult, even working in the corporate world, she was extremely sensitive to others’ energies. Jill explains that in between childhood and adulthood she learned to push her abilities down inside of herself. She did this because when she told others about what she was experiencing, their reactions were rarely positive.

However, as she learned as her physical issues worsened, ignoring her abilities did not shut them off. She realized she needed a way to “unplug from that and plug into my core and be present in my life.” One thing that Jill has learned in her pathway to becoming an energy worker is that you must learn to not take on other’s energy issues. For those of us that do not work in energy healing, the lesson is still relevant: we must find ways to leave our work at the office and not take it home with us.

For Jill, self-care is the essential tool for balance. At the moment, she feels that she has a lot going on with work, but she’s still able to avoid exhaustion. To do this, Jill is “doubling down on my practice” of self-care, including meditation and energy clearing. “I’m finding that that’s really helping me navigate this time,” she explains, “it’s helping me stay balanced, grounded, present.”
