How Your Biggest Asset is Getting in the Way of Your Success with Kristine Kolzing
We all hold beliefs that shape the decisions we make every single day. As young children, our beliefs are internalised, quietly forming the way we see ourselves and the way we interact with the world. But what if those beliefs aren’t serving you anymore? What if they’re simply not true? Are you believing something to be true that is limiting your potential and holding you back from being aligned with your true self? For most of us, the answer is yes. Perhaps it was something someone told you when you were young, or a generational belief structure that exists in your whole family or community. Wherever it came from, the good news is that you can change your belief structure. You have the power to realign your thoughts, overcome those beliefs and choose to believe something that would serve you better. Our incredible guest today is Kristine Kolzing and I’m so excited to dive into this topic with her. Kristine is a transformational mindset expert who guides wellness entrepreneurs to step into their most powerful selves. She is a master success coach and CEO of The Alignment Tribe, an NLP & Reiki practitioner, certified pilates instructor, health and wellness coach and an all round beautiful and inspiring person. In this episode, Kristine explains in detail how beliefs are formed and shares the number one thing that she teaches her clients, which is that you have the power to choose your beliefs. You’ll discover how to identify your limiting beliefs and learn how to realign your thoughts, expand your thinking and design a life that you love. I know you’re going to be so inspired by what Kristine has to share. Tune in, unwind and let your heart and mind be expanded.

How To Deal With Change
I feel like for the longest time, I was really resisting change. On the surface, I may have seemed like I was relaxed, going with the flow and able to adapt, but on the inside I needed to feel in control. I needed to feel like I knew what was coming next and that I had a plan. During this ever-changing time that we’re currently living through, I’ve very drastically felt that all that I was holding onto, was forced to break away. And that has been very uncomfortable. Yes, change is uncomfortable. Most of us enjoy feeling safe and secure, so when our need for some sense of predictability is threatened, we resist. What I’m starting to really understand is how inevitable and necessary change really is. We are always in motion. Nothing is really constant and it’s okay to feel a little unsure about what may be to come. I’m not is a really hard concept to truly accept. Change isn’t the problem. Our resistance to change is where the discomfort stems from. Find me over on vitinablumenthal.com

5 Ways Gratitude Can Make You A Better Entrepreneur with Vivian Kaye
In a world where so much is out of your control, it’s all too easy to find yourself in a place of stress and anxiety. There is sickness and disease, there is poverty and corruption and if you continue to focus on these things, you can quickly become overwhelmed. We now know the negative impacts of stress on our bodies, but if you don’t intentionally focus on something else, that stress will continue to imbed its effects into your mind and body. What can you do to make a positive change? You might not be able to control global events, but you can control the way you approach them. You can control the way you think, the way you speak, and the way you treat others. You might feel like you don’t have control over events in your life, in your relationships or your business, but you do. We all have the power to choose what happens in our lives and it starts with GRATITUDE. There are numerous studies about the power of positive thinking but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. When things are falling to pieces, it can feel like a battle to break out of negative mindsets and dismantle the power of the inner critic. Our guest today is Vivian Kaye, Founder and CEO of KinkyCurlyYaki and a woman who manifests the power of gratitude. Vivian first discovered the power of gratitude in January 2019 when she started using a ‘5 minute gratitude journal’. Finding herself in a low place, she realized that she needed to change something and decided to make the gratitude journal part of her daily routine. By the end of the year, she was amazed at the success and abundance that she had experienced and upon reflection she realized it was all attributed to her practice of gratitude. Vivian shares with us 5 amazing tips of how practicing gratitude will impact your life for the better. We’ve all heard about self care, but this is more than just massages and candlelit baths. Gratitude goes beyond the external and into the soul, a reprogramming of your subconscious. When you practice gratitude, you will experience a true manifestation of success, abundance and happiness in your life. The outworking of this is immeasurable. What better way to change the world than to change yourself first? LINKS WE MENTIONED: Vivian Kaye’s 7 Day Gratitude Challenge Vivian Kaye instagram: @itsviviankaye

Why It’s So Important To Build Community with Alexandria Wynter Russell and Anna Laura Sommer from She Shines
Take stock for a moment and think about what your community looks like. Who are the people you really do life with? Are you surrounded by people who encourage you, challenge you and share your passions? You might already be blessed with a collection of like minded souls around you, or perhaps, you might still be searching for that sense of community, that sense of belonging that is inherent in the human psyche. No woman is an island. You can’t walk through life and achieve success without a community of like minded people around you who share your enthusiasm, understand your mission and support you in where you want to go. And it goes both ways. When you walk in community, you are presented with an amazing opportunity to give to those around you, to help them grow and see them succeed. Our special guests today live and breathe community and understand what it takes to build a successful one. Alex and Anna Laura met on Instagram after mutual friends suggested they would hit it off. Soon discovering that they shared many passions and were walking somewhat of a parallel journey, they decided to join forces. This resulted in the birth of ShexShines, a platform for multi-passionate women to connect, learn and grow together. Understanding the deep need for community themselves, they embedded three core values into the foundations of ShexShines; Connection, Community and Girl Talk. The way in which Alex and Anna Laura built their friendship was something they wanted to pass along to other women. They wanted others to experience the benefits of true authentic connection. In this episode, Alex and Anna Laura unpack why it’s so important to have a community of like minded people around you and how the journey of self discovery is crucial in helping you find the people who truly make you shine. Community as we know it is changing. Social distancing has changed everything. To walk in community in this day and age, you must take the opportunity to reflect on what it is that you really want for your life. Who are the people you want to surround yourself with? You don’t have to find people in the same city or even the same time zone. What you need are people whose hearts and minds are aligned, who share your passions and understand your purpose. When you find those people, there is no stopping you.

How To Boost Your Impact Through Servant Leadership with Alexis Dean
The value of a human being can never be underestimated. Imagine what it would be like to go to work and really be seen, really be understood and valued as an individual with purpose, not just as an employee. What if you could run your business powered by a team of people who invest their heart and soul into what you do because they feel empowered to be all they can be? If we think of leadership as being at the top of the ladder, it can quickly lead to a very isolating and emotionally demanding place. And for those at the bottom, they can often feel forgotten and undervalued. No wonder so many businesses are struggling. Perhaps that’s not the only way to do it. Perhaps the age-old triangle can be flipped and the employer can start working for the employee, and that’s just what we’ll be discussing on today’s episode. Alexis Dean is the founder of Dovetail Summit, a global community of women who work together to empower fellow female entrepreneurs. She has introduced me to so many amazing people through her incredible network, many of whom I have had on the Soul Compass podcast already. Alexis started her journey as an entrepreneur in the corporate training and leadership space. From facilitating events, running corporate team building to management roles and starting businesses, she was doing it all. But no one can do it alone and that’s when Dovetail was established. Struggling with the demanding nature of running her own business, working 24/7 and coming under financial and emotional pressures, Alexis realised the need to have a community of entrepreneurs alongside her. People who she could share with, learn from and grow with. It’s a great honour to have Alexis with us today as we talk about Servant Leadership and how changing your mindset from “you work for me” to “I work for you” is crucial to running a successful and flourishing business. The pillars of Servant Leadership are invaluable and will help you to run a business that doesn’t just survive, it thrives. What does it mean to be a good leader? How do you let go and allow your team to work autonomously, enabling their imagination and ideas to flourish? In this era of technology and global community, it’s imperative to value the individual. It’s imperative that we value the human.

Does Saying No Make You a Bad Person with Paul Baranowski
You are valuable. Your life is valuable and how you choose to spend your time is crucial to living the life you desire. Time is the most precious resource you have. It's the only element you can never buy more of, or get back, no matter your wealth. Likewise, no amount of wealth or social status escalates the value of anyone else’s time over your own. What is under your control is how you use the time you are given. Sometimes, to protect our cherished time, it becomes necessary to set boundaries with people, purposefully limiting the amount of time any one person can have from you. This is especially important with those who will TAKE and TAKE and TAKE until there's nothing left of you. Society has created this fine line between asserting yourself and offending someone and people get uncomfortable with changes to the status quo. Setting boundaries for your self-protection may lead to some push back... sometimes, unexpectedly, from the people you care about the most. In this episode, you'll learn how to "say no" in a positive way with Paul Baranowski. Paul, a deeply spiritual and dedicated Buddhist practitioner, began his journey of self-discovery about 16 years ago after experiencing a prolonged period of disconnect. Like so many, he has walked the corporate path but left feeling as if there was more that he needed to be doing. More that he needed to be creating, and a deeper connection that he needed to find within himself. He learnt and mastered meditation with the help of many incredible teachers, and now has a knack for applying these teachings to modern-day society. This method of mindfulness was a crucial tool for a self-confessed introvert and enabled him to find a way to connect with himself better and also with those around him. Today we speak in great depth about the different ways boundaries can be set within your relationships, within yourself, and why this is truly a magnificent practice to do for yourself. Not only will you benefit from setting clearer boundaries, but those around you will benefit, even if to start with it is exceedingly uncomfortable. After all, what is the point of spreading yourself so thin and saying “yes” to everything that comes your way? Does anyone win in the end? No one gets the best of you, and you certainly don’t get the best of yourself. It’s so important to think about the life you’re trying to create for yourself, the people you want to surround yourself with, and what is truly within your capacity. You can only do so many things well. Not everything needs to be done now, and not everything needs to be done by you. TOPICS DISCUSSED AND WHEN TO FIND THEM [08:32]: Paul’s origin story [10:42]: Saying “No” is an example of boundary setting for yourself [11:42]: Exploring the difference between setting boundaries and making demands [12:12]: Boundaries make a person feel protected. Demands make a person feel unsafe. [13:42]: The perception of boundary-setting as selfish and how deeper thought can reveal the benefit for both parties involved. [14:02]: Paul shares an example from his personal life where boundaries were necessary to benefit both parties [15:52]: Tips to using boundaries to your own advantage in your relationships and the challenges faced in setting them [17:27]: Boundaries don’t and sometimes shouldn’t necessarily last forever as relationships naturally change over time [18:12]: Self-care by saying “No” and setting boundaries is contagious and inspires those around you to protect their own time [19:22]: Being a “Yes” person and the problems that can come with it [21:07]: If we don’t know how to care for ourselves, we can’t help others to care for themselves [21:29]: The five daily practices to teach you how to care for yourself [24:12]: Paul shares an experience from his introverted years where he was perturbed by a random insult he received on the street and now, post the internal work, he frames it all differently [26:26]: It’s easy to blame others for how you are feeling [27:17]: The difference between blaming others or blaming ourselves [28:35]: Paul discusses how a late train can be a vehicle for re-thinking responsibility and effecting self-discovery [31:10]: How blaming others makes us feel entitled to other people’s care [31:51]: Making a personal vow within ourselves is a way of setting boundaries and leading to behavioural change [32:12]: The 5 facets of mindfulness training in Buddhism [36:24]: Don’t be afraid to enlist the support of your friends to strengthen your boundaries BOOKS WE MENTIONED: [33:44]: Teachings on Love - Thich Nhat Hanh [33:52]: Wake Up To Your Life - Ken McLeod LINKS: Paul’s website: Undiscoveredgreatness.com Paul’s online courses to launch within the next few months

Charging Your Worth with Sanja Serwa
Putting a price tag on your product or service can be a daunting task for any entrepreneur. “How much is too much? Don’t I have to be competitive? Am I really worth that much?”. These sorts of questions can get stuck in your mind when running your own business and it’s really easy to undervalue yourself. But don’t fret, Sanja Serwa is here to tell you you’re worth it! Sanja is a self-diagnosed stubborn entrepreneur talking with us today on Soul Compass about getting paid what you’re worth. She achieved freedom from working under a boss and took charge of her career heading-up two successful companies: IV Skincare - a luxury skincare range without the luxury price tag Vossity - an online beauty boutique specialising in green beauty products You might have come across negative press or unhappy customers in your career and it’s hard not to take this personally. I’m sure you remember very well that one time you missed a deadline or misinterpreted a brief, but it seems to be hard to recall the hundred times you nailed it. This can lead to problems valuing yourself and your work, a value that is communicated to the world in what you charge your clients or customers. We discuss self-worth as businesswomen, negotiation tactics, and Sanja’s 4 strategies to productivity as an entrepreneur (organisation, prioritising goals, presenting yourself, and staying until the work is done). TOPICS WE COVER: Separating your feelings in business and not taking things personally The worst that somebody could say is no, and that’s not so bad Lowering your prices to stay competitive cheapens you in the client’s eyes Being adept and efficient at something does not mean charging less Remember, the client has come to you because they need you Never lower your price, instead add more value Even a “no” on a price rise, is still a playground for negotiation Changing your financial mindset along with your perception of financial proficiency What is your “Why”? Why do you deserve to be paid this amount?

Dealing with Overwhelm at Work with Rachel Kelly
With all the incredible advances in technology comes a never-ending struggle to tend to your endless notifications. In the workplace, especially the freelancing and entrepreneur arena, this translates to being reachable 24-7 and raises expectations of clients to near unrealistic levels. If you’re a client-centred service you might have experienced personal sacrifice to satisfy these demands. This comes at the cost of mental health and manifests as worker burnout. Burnout at work is a prevalent but under-discussed topic. It’s often unrecognised until you’re in crisis and can disable the overwhelmed worker with flow-on effects felt particularly hard by freelancers. Each and every one of us, either directly or indirectly, has seen the effects this can have and a common question from the time-poor worker emerges: how do I deal with and prevent it? Enter Rachel Kelly: a long-standing friend and self-proclaimed Jill-of-all-trades, Rachel has enjoyed a multitude of jobs in freelance graphic design, social media marketing and copywriting before a travel writing job gave her the taste of an office-less lifestyle - one she found too delicious to give up. She embarked on her own as an entrepreneur freelancer but found she missed the comradery and social aspect of an office environment and was underwhelmed with her sad office parties of one. Around this time, a salaried dream job was withdrawn at the last minute leading to job stress though with the silver lining of a newfound sense of self-determination. Through her own patronage of co-working spaces, she identified an area of need for like-minded women paving the way for the foundation of Make Lemonade: a Toronto-based co-working space for entrepreneurial women. In this episode, Rachel discusses her tactics for dealing with overwhelm at work and strategies to prevent it by employing achievable daily practices.

Three Strategies To Simplify Your Life and Focus On You
Well, I can’t quite believe that we’re here. After almost 6 months of the Soul Compass podcast, we’ve reached the end of the season. I'll be honest, I didn't really know what to expect when I first started this podcast, but it exceeded my expectations. I'm really grateful for the tribe, the community, and the support I’ve received along the way. Thank you so much for being part of this journey. My theme for 2019 was to simplify, and along the way I’ve learned a few valuable lessons. Yes, they’ve been hard lessons, but valuable nonetheless. I have had to let go of so much, and work on this “perfectionist” mindset that I’ve held for so long, and work on creating space for myself. So on today’s episode, I want to share with you three strategies that I’ve implemented in my life throughout 2019, to help create the space that I needed in order to grow professionally, and personally.

Using Rejections As Your Lessons with Tahani Aburaneh
How have you added value to someone’s life today? Whether it be a friend, a colleague, or a client, have you provided them with something that cost you nothing, but provided value to their life in some way. This is a noble goal. To feel like you have information to share and you can be of service to others, you first have to look inwards and assess where your strengths are. Can you be of service to others in a meaningful way? Honestly, no matter what your skillset, there is always someone that you can help in some way. There is always a way to make someone else’s day a little brighter. My guest today, Tahani Aburaneh lives and breathes this ethos. From the very moment she was born, Tahani had to overcome such adversity. She was born in a refugee camp in the Middle East, was arranged to be married at just 15 years old and was forced to move to Canada as a result. Then after 22 years of marriage, Tahani found herself dealing with a divorce and had two young kids to take care of. Instead of wallowing in self-pity and negative thoughts, Tahani learned how to hustle her butt off and has built an empire on real estate investing. She focuses on helping females achieve financial freedom and the importance of educating themselves to ensure they are never reliant on anyone other than themselves. Tahani is the brains behind the Females in Real Estate (FIRE) Conference and runs her business, Tahani International. Check out her websites for more info.

How Poor Quality Sleep Affects Your Mental and Physical Health with Shane Heath
How much coffee, is too much? The answer is remarkably different for everyone as I’m sure you’re aware. But hey, I’m not here to discuss the ins and outs of coffee consumption. That would most likely put you to sleep regardless of whether you’ve just had a cup of coffee yourself. I’m here to introduce you to one man who found he was using coffee as a crutch, had trouble sleeping properly as a result and felt he needed to drastically change his life. Shane Heath has been interested in health and wellbeing since a very young age. He researched ayurvedic medicine, trained in the martial art, Jiu-Jitsu of which his teacher also incorporated aspects of yoga and breath work, and he advocated for eating a plant-based diet. Although Shane loved the wellness industry he didn’t imagine he would ever find himself working in this space. Shane has a fine arts degree and after college found himself working in the tech industry in Silicone Valley. It wasn’t until he was invited to spend 6 months in Goa, India as an artist in residence, that his life began to transformed and he began to explore the possibilities in a new venture. Shane is the co-founder of MUD\WTR™, a coffee alternative consisting of organic ingredients lauded by cultures old and young for their health and performance benefits.

Acceptance is Liberating with Karlyn Percil
Are you scared to get into your own head? Too worried about what you’re going to find in there? Instead of sitting with your thoughts and being mindful when you’re alone, you reach for your phone, your headphones, a book. Any distraction that you can find to stop yourself from having to spend a little time within yourself. Well you know what, there’s probably a big ol’ elephant up in there, and if you don’t take the time to deal with it, then how do you expect to really grow? At the recent Camp Dovetail event, I witnessed the powerhouse that is today’s guest, Karlyn Percil give a short but very impactful speech. The more I heard, the more I knew that I needed to have her on the Soul Compass podcast. As a survivor of child sexual abuse, bullying, depression & anxiety – Karlyn knows what it’s like to live in a dark place and for so long, she too avoided the elephant in the room. But the more she studied the brain, neuroplasticity and emotional intelligence, she realised that the only way to liberate herself from these traumas, was to accept them for what they were. Karlyn now accepts that all that has happened in her life has happened for her, not to her. A very important distinction to make, and in this conversation today, we talk about why. To learn more about Karlyn head to her website or follow her on LinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter. Follow along on my journey over at WanderfulSoul.com and SoulCompass.life.

Becoming A Master of Artful Mistake Making with Tamara Jacobi
Have you ever dreamed of running away to live in the jungle? Do you instantly get visions of living a life just like Tarzan, swinging from the trees and being one with your surroundings? Well, maybe it’s not exactly as romantic as that, but my guest today Tamara Jacobi, has certainly found her place in the jungle. The story of how Tamara came to open the Tailwind Jungle Lodge in San Pacho, Mexico, with her parents as her business partners at only 22, is certainly not a story you’d hear often. As a fresh-faced college graduate, Tamara found herself at the fork in the road trying to decide between a corporate job on Wall Street, or pursuing this passion project with her parents. It wasn’t an easy choice to make, but ultimately, it came down to her asking a very important question, “What Would I Regret More?”, and the rest is history. Now in their 13th season in the jungle, Tamara has no regrets. Although it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, as you’ll discover from listening to Tamara on the podcast today, she is truly living a life that is aligned with her purpose.

It's Not About Me, It's About Mwe with Dr. Dan Siegel
Meditation is such a trendy thing to do these days that it is not only a staple practice for those of us in the wellness industry, but for the mainstream medical community too. In fact, it’s this intersectionality between the east and west that I find so fascinating. Allowing yourself to be still and focus only on the here and now, is definitely no easy task, but with practice, you really do start to see a shift in your emotional state. Your focus is better, your mental state is calmer and among so many other benefits, you’re just able to process your emotions easier on a daily basis. This focus on your emotions and the science behind why meditation works so well is where we dive in to today’s episode with my guest Dr. Dan Siegel. I’m so pleased to welcome such a distinguished guest onto the Soul Compass podcast today. Dr. Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. An award-winning educator, he is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and recipient of several honorary fellowships. Dr. Siegel is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational organization, which offers online learning and in-person seminars that focus on how the development of mindsight in individuals, families and communities can be enhanced by examining the interface of human relationships and basic biological processes.

The answer will be vastly different for each and every one of you I’m sure, but I’d be interested to know how many of you simply thought to trust and rely on yourself among all others. We talk in our society about the importance of mentors, surrounding yourself with positive people, studying or finding spiritual awakening from spiritual leaders or gurus. Then on a base level -listening to your parents, your grand-parents, your teachers. The list of people in your life right now that you could learn from if you really sat down and thought about it, is huge. And yet, how many opinions do you actually need? How many thoughts or feelings do you need to take into consideration? How many teachings do you need to shape your own personal development journey. This is one of many very interesting topics we dive into today on the Soul Compass Podcast with my guest, Erin Doppelt. Erin is a highly fascinating individual with a self-discovery journey unlike many that I’ve encountered. Her travels, studies and life experiences have brought her to a place where her mind is completely open to the unique opportunities that come her way, and her ability to verbalise how these experiences have shaped her is inspiring.

Following Your Intuition with Becka and Rachael from Vibe Tribe Wellness
What’s holding you back from the things you want to achieve in life? When you really sit down and think about it, breathe for a moment and think about that little niggle, that thought that keeps popping into your head, what is it that’s stopping you from doing that thing? Whether it’s leaving the job that you’re not interested in, turning your side hustle into your main hustle, staying with a person that doesn’t respect you, or even just committing to eating better. What is it that’s stopping you from pulling the trigger, and transforming your life? My guests today Becka and Rachael from Vibe Tribe Wellness both reached a point in their lives where they pulled the pin on that big, scary goal and just went for it. They listened to their intuition, leaned into their purpose and the pay off has been huge. At some point, you have to learn to get out of your own way, and allow yourself to step into who you’re supposed to be. Becka and Rachel haven’t known each other forever. In fact, they met on Instagram. They were so inspired by each other’s individual journeys and one day, the universe finally brought them together at a food event no less. They have been bff’s ever since and have created a community and wellness business that helps you achieve your personal wellness goals.
