The Coming of My First Book with Jackie Tapia & Christina Igaraividez
After months of writing, I have finally completed my first book. It hasn’t been an easy road, I had to face a few challenges on the way, but I finally reached my goal. I decided to share this with all of you amigas out there because I genuinely believe that everything is possible if we set our mind to it, work hard, and believe in our capabilities. For most of my life, I lived with the impostor syndrome that I couldn’t be a writer, and I believed that. When I finally challenged this belief and allowed myself to write a book, everything changed, and I discovered a part of myself that I didn’t know I had inside me. Rember, sometimes we find out who we are when we are being challenged, and these are the hardships that make us unique, special, and amazing altogether. Finishing my first book was a great accomplishment for me, but I couldn’t have done it without the help of my fantastic amiga and writing coach, Christina Igaraividez. Christina was there with me every step of the way, and I couldn’t be more grateful for this. In today’s special episode, Christina asks me some questions about the coming of my book, how I was able to fit writing into my schedule and why I decided to write a book in the first place. Christina Igaraividez is a writer, performer, producer, and storytelling coach. Whether it's an ensemble production or a digital short, she is constantly working on how to get people to laugh and sometimes cry. She has trained in comedy across Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles at places like Second City, Iowa, and UCB.

Leading with Legacy with Ann Marie Smith
The world has changed drastically in the past three decades. Technology has taken over our lives. In-person conversations have been substituted with texts and zoom calls. People's lives have become so hectic and fast-paced that finding time for loved ones requires top calendar management skills. The idea that spending time with other people requires too much time and money it's so widespread that it started affecting family traditions and the creation of legacy.

The Postmodern Oracle with Ilona Pamplona
Whereas astrology has become a popular practice for many people worldwide, especially in recent years, there is still a lot of skepticism around it. Many skeptics tend to correlate the word astrology with horoscope, its most publicized practice, but this is only a tiny part of it. Numerous astrological methods, like natal charts, are complicated and embedded with years of traditions. Humans have been mapping patterns in the sky for centuries. Ancient Babylonians first carved the heavens into the Western zodiac we recognize today. Astrology was once a vital part of Western European culture, considered a science with the same integrity as astronomy. It was the advent of science in the 17th century that denigrated astrology as a pseudoscience. Nevertheless, its popularity is soaring, even thanks to social media, and people have started using it for many aspects of their lives. Today’s guest, Ilona Pamplona, will tell us about her background in college education, how Walter Mercado and her mom introduced her to magic and astrology, and why she decided to become the Postmodern Oracle. Ilona Pamplona is an astrology-informed life coach. She is an MA wellness coach and has a book called The Chronicle Books. Ilona is a chief community-visionary officer, and she is also a believer in magical realism. She's helped dozens of women reconnect with their inner worlds, harness the magic of their emotions, and transform their most important relationship, the one they have with themselves.

Write Whatever you Want It to Be with Christina Igaraividez
When it comes to writing, whether it is journaling or writing a book, or a screenplay, the most important thing is that it needs to come from within yourself without any restrictions or mental filters. How often did you hear something like, you should journal about your problems? This is standard advice when it comes to journaling. The idea that you have to write specific topics for your writing to have a purpose is widespread, but it can’t be more hurtful because it prevents your mind from being creative and expressing its true self.
