Breaking through comfort zones, pursuing passions and surprisingly deep thoughts on ice cream
Happy 30 episodes! Every tenth episode is a Q&A show and this time we did things a little differently. I asked for anyone to send in their questions and got some amazing ones! Thank you.
My sister was on island for the weekend so I roped her into recording with me. My sister Nellie asked the questions and rather than just a simple Q&A this turned into more of a conversation which I loved. Obviously I am biased because my sister and I are best friends, but I think this episode was really special and so much fun.
I loved that the questions were deep and not black and white answers. Again, take my advice, like all advice, with a grain of salt because we’re different people. If you like something, use it. If you don’t, no worries babe!

Today’s episode is all about financial health.
When today’s guest approached me asking me to be on the show I hesitated and asked myself is money related to wellness at all?
In the end I definitely believe it is.
My personal belief is that money is an energy.
Its not inherently good or evil, it’s a tool that we can use to amplify ourselves.
I’m a believer that if you’re a generous, positive person with good intentions money can just help you do the things and give and be more of that awesome energy.
The same goes for if you’re a dickhead.
Obviously there’s a million things we could dive into with money but today we kept it pretty simple.
This episode is especially geared towards folks who are in their twenties and early thirties, but heck anyone who just wants to feel a little more empowered and in control.
Just like with your wellness and health there’s no one right answer with how to manage your money.
If you’re listening and don’t agree with everything my guest says that’s absolutely ok. We all have a right and ability to manage our money in a way that works for us.
I also wanted to note that if any of the diet related metaphors don’t work or resonate with you I totally get that. Some of them didn’t really land with me but I was able to understand the point she was making and the money advice was still great. So just because maybe a certain metaphor doesn’t click - you can still listen to and enjoy the financial side of things.
What I really loved is that Shannon is not black and white about money. She knows that everyone thinks and manages things differently which is what really helped me get a lot of benefit from this advice. I loved how she didn’t say there’s just one way to do everything.
