019 Thistle Farms and Love for Dorris
Believe me when I say the Thistle Farms experience is powerful. Truly powerful. I went a few years back and experienced what the brand stands for in person. Ok, fine... you got me. I wanted to cry...like... the whole time I was there. Not tears of sadness, but tears of awe. The Thistle Farms website reads: "Love is the most powerful force for change in the world. It lights the way for physical, mental, and economic freedom for women who have survived childhood trauma, unjust systems, the commodifying of their worth, and believing their past defines their future." I love Thistle Farms, I love the brand story, and I love all the good Thistle Farms brings to this world. I loved hearing Dorris' story, and I hope you do too. Thistle Farms is a nonprofit social enterprise dedicated to helping women survivors recover and heal from prostitution, trafficking, and addiction. We do this by providing a safe place to live, a meaningful job, and a lifelong sisterhood of support. Learn more at ThistleFarms.org

I sat down with artist and comedian Kira MagCalen to talk about her Honest Monsters. Kira draws monsters as a way to process through uncomfortable feelings, she shares these Honest Monsters on Instagram at @turbulentflow.online If branding is all about giving an identity to an idea, Kira is killing it.

013 Business Lessons Learned from Improv with Travis Lachner
I first met Travis Lachner on LinkedIn. What caught my eye about Travis was the way he took life experiences and translated them into business lessons. I guess you can say his LinkedIn strategy is working well. My favorite business lesson he talks about? Improv. I have been doing Improv myself for about 7 months now, and I've learned quite a lot from it. My personal favorite lessons from improv are: 1. Trust yourself. We all know you and I won't be funny or compelling if we don't trust ourselves. 2. PLAY. Holy crap. Play. Why is it so hard to remember to play in our daily lives? 3. Mindfulness. You must be present and you can't plan ahead. Get used to it, baby! Listen to Travis talk more about the lessons he's learned from Improv for business and branding.

007 Storytelling Unplugged: The Copper Children BONUS episode!
The Soul-folk band, The Copper Children popped up on my Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify about four years ago. I’ve been hooked ever since. I love the Copper Children because they take you to church without you even knowing you agreed to go. No, not like the Hosier song... The kind of church where love is the center, where connection and community grow and great stories are told. As we build brands, we must write powerful stories. Musicians like Zea and Christopher help us open our minds to the endless possibility of our own stories. Don’t miss them at the Bluebird Theater on March 12th. I’ll be there drinking too much beer.

005 Boobs, Butts and Branding Part 2 | Our Beauty Sick Culture with Renee Engeln, Ph.D
I had the pleasure of interviewing Professor, Psychologist, and author of Beauty Sick, Renee Engeln, Ph.D. We had a chat about how branding feeds the beauty sickness in our culture and how to fight back. Branding runs the show when it comes to beauty sickness and body image...but as usual, there is hope. “It's hard to change the world when you're so busy trying to change your body, your skin, your hair, and your clothes. It's difficult to engage with the state of the economy, the state of politics or the state of our education system if you're too busy worrying about the state of your muffin top, the state of your cellulite or the state of your makeup. There is work to be done in this world. Leaving the world in better shape than how you found it is more important than the shape of your body.” Beauty Sick by Renee Engeln, Ph.D

004 Boobs, Butts and Branding Part 1 | My Titties!
I got a letter in the mail in May 2019 informing me that my breast implants were recalled by the FDA. In the process of learning this new information, I found out I had breast implant illness along with the FDA recalled implants. Where I am from, we call this a double whammy. This difficult journey prompted some questions in my personal life. What role does branding play in body image in our culture? Sadly, I think it might run the show. Take a listen to the series featuring Psychologist and Author Renee Engeln, PhD, Comedian Christie Buchele, Influencer Julia Parzyck and Jaclyn Fu Co-Founder and CEO of Pepper.

Joey is my client, one of my favorite clients to be exact. In 2018, Joey and I created a brand called Wildbelly. I reference Wildbelly all of the time because I love it so much. Joey and I were on the same wavelength and we connected over spirituality during this process. In fact, I feel 100% comfortable talking to Joey about how design needs to be born, it is making itself just as much as we are making it. Woo-woo? You betcha-- but just the right amount. In this episode, Joey and I talk about the process of creating Wildbelly while dishing on gratitude. Don’t miss it!
