Aligning your Brand for Success w/ Teila-Anne Butler
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina is joined by Teila-Anne Butler to discuss aligning your brand from the beginning to reach success. She’s a digital marketing guru and has years of experience helping brands define themselves and stand out online. Teila got into marketing on accident by following a skillset, and naturally grew through sharing her knowledge. Aligned branding means keeping true to you, and it’s important from the beginning because of the sheer amount of noise present in every industry. When you’re showing up as who you genuinely are, the right people will find you. That saves you time and energy in marketing because your fans and the people who love you and your services will do a large part of your marketing for you. It also keeps you from having to rebrand later on because you’re staying to what’s natural to you, and it will feel like less work. The number one mistake people make on social media is putting pressure on themselves to create. It’s the perception that every piece of content has to be intentional, and they stop having fun with it. This comes out specifically with people with personal brands, who have a hard time separating themselves from their online persona. Knowing your target audience will help you streamline your alignment. Showing up for people comes down to the kind of language you’re using about your business, images you’re sharing, and the way you’re speaking to people. The moment you have that person in mind as you do these things, you’ll naturally change the way you’re showing up for them. Your brand vision is long-term, whereas your mission works shorter term and allows you to target specific goals and customers. Figuring out where you want to start showing up is the first step to aligning your personas with your vision and mission. Listen now and learn all this and more from Teila-Anne! What You Will Learn: Background on Teila and what she does in social media. Why alignment in your brand is key to running a successful business. Actionable steps listeners can do to level up their brand.

Claiming Confidence in the Present & leaving the past in the past w/ Erika Cramer aka The Queen of Confidence
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina is joined by Queen of Confidence, Erika Cramer. Erika has survived many different traumas throughout her life including, childhood abuse, foster care, loss, and more, and is the definition of transforming trauma into triumph. Erika believes all women are queens of confidence and the route to achieving that level is to see it in ourselves. Curvy women struggle with finding clothes that fit more than any other demographic in Australia, so back when she was a clothing stylist, she started out as the Queen of Curves. But through that journey, she felt the exclusion of other types of women, and she decided she didn’t want to stand in that spotlight. So she changed the name to be more inclusive to any woman looking for a leader. Erika grew up in the US. Her mom was in and out of mental hospitals, so Erika spent a lot of time in foster care. She was constantly looking for validation, had no sense of belonging or confidence, and was very angry. At 17 she joined the army, thinking that was the only way she could get out of her world. Years later, Erika was involved in a very bad car accident, spent 30 days in the hospital, and had to learn to walk again. Thinking that was her wakeup call, she left the military and started on her journey of becoming a model and stylist. At the age of 23, her husband was involved in a drunk driving accident and passed away. Feeling lost and alone, she dated several men who were not good people, and ended up relocating to Australia. While living in Australia, she realized she couldn’t outrun the past and really needed to do the work to heal and grow. That set her on the path to becoming the Queen of Confidence and meeting her now-husband. You need to look in the mirror, and realize that the common denominator in your life is you. It’s not because of anything else, and we can’t keep blaming all those other things. If you’ve had a lot of terrible things happen to you in your life, they can be easy to blame for where you are now. But so many people have had truly horrible things happen in their pasts and are thriving. Look to those people, and take responsibility for the life you have and the future you want. We can’t change anything through anger and judgment. What You Will Learn: Background on Erika and her journey. How to transform trauma into triumph. Taking responsibility for our present and future. ABOUT ERIKA CRAMER Known as the Cardi B of the personal development world, Erika Cramer aka The Queen of Confidence is a full-flavoured, spicy inspirational speaker and mentor to thousands of women across the globe. Today, she connects with an engaged global community and shares with tens of thousands of women on a daily basis to help empower, encourage and inspire them to step into their confidence. But it hasn’t always been this way. Having survived many traumatic experiences in her youth, Erika spent a number of years searching for love, peace and validation in all the wrong places. She has survived childhood sexual abuse, being brought up in and out of the foster care system, life-altering car accidents and a whole lot of grief and loss. In the last decade, she has been able to turn her life around from one of hopelessness and pain to one of passion, growth and success, after going on her own powerful journey of personal healing. An international confidence coach, Erika also hosts a five-star rated podcast, The Confidence Chronicles, which is in the top 10 of the Australian Apple charts for Mental Health, with 1,800,000+ downloads and counting, and listeners in 86+ countries.

Erika’s story is one of triumph over adversity and she is full of light, laughter and of course, confidence. Erika is a beaming and beautiful example of how you can heal your personal story to transform trauma into triumph.

Trauma Integration and Why Everyone Should Do It w/ Briana Bowley
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina is joined by Brianna Bowley, a trauma coach who focuses on rewriting trauma response and teaching what we need to learn. People think trauma is abuse, witnessing something violent, or an accident. For Brianna, my definition of trauma is anything that disconnects us from ourselves. When we have these traumatic experiences, whether traditional trauma or minor experiences, one of three things happens: fight, flight, or freeze. Understanding our go-to response and why we do what we do is incredibly important to achieving new growth because then we can start to shift those patterns. Brianna encourages her clients to track their reactions, what triggered it, the responses in their bodies, and what they felt driven to do afterward to deal with it. That adds an extra depth of awareness, and we start to see how it impacts our lives. For people in a constant state of fight-or-flight for survival, teaching them to be in their stillness allows them to take themselves out of that space. You don't feel it when you're in a fight or flight state. It feels normal to you, and it's often a real struggle when you try to slow down. So take it in small steps and know that the things we feel we're missing pave the way for values. Our pain points pave the way for our power. What You Will Learn: Background on Brianna and how she got into trauma coaching. How trauma, big or small, shapes our internal systems and impacts our bodies. Tips for rewriting your own trauma responses to reach your highest level.

85 - Accessing your Inner Wisdom aka Intuition w/ Trace Garbin
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina is joined by Trace Garbin to discuss inner wisdom and intuition. In the journey for the meaning of life, Trace found self-awareness was her answer. Self-awareness unlocked everything for her when we’re lost, and things don’t feel good. Now, she works with adults to unlock that inner wisdom and soul energy. With self-awareness, you can retain your life-force energy and focus on what’s expansive for you. Self-help can feel like busy work, but that doesn’t mean you’re not getting results. And you can get caught up and distracted in self-help. Being more in tune with what you’re feeling, hearing, saying, etc., can help you gain self-awareness. It’s like a muscle, and you have to keep using it. Absolutely everyone has intuition, and the key to tapping into it is getting rid of the layers that dimmed it. The biggest step toward initiative awareness has self-trust. Relationships take time. Skills take time. So don’t stop showing up. Regarding growth work, the most important thing is figuring out what works for you. Sometimes, like if we’ve suffered a big trauma, meditation won’t be helpful, and something else might be more effective in achieving the right amount of mental stillness. Explore different ways of grounding yourself and pay attention to what you feel in your body. Give yourself a chance to get into those lows and work past the initial challenge of learning a new system. Once we’ve done the work, we can better see our true calling in life. Everyone has a side-hustle; there’s nothing wrong with it, and if it’s genuinely your divine calling, go to it. However, you want to be doing it because of you and not for any external reasons. What You Will Learn: Background on Trace Garbin and her background in inner wisdom. An inside look at inner wisdom and why intuition is important. Tips for unlocking and improving your inner wisdom.

Parts, Fragmentation, & Reclamation
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina discusses parts, fragmentation, and the reclamation of our parts. Parts of us are the aspects of our personality or behaviors we either identify with or have chosen not to. As we go through life, we’re being fed information and feedback that we internalize as lessons for survival and expectation. If you’re punished for certain behaviors, or even if you’ve heard people in your life speak poorly of others who displayed those behaviors, your desire to be loved and accepted will force you to reduce the acceptance of those parts within yourself. We can disown a part of ourselves, meaning you brought a part forward and experienced a painful rejection for it. And if we experience that rejection repeatedly, we’ll shut it down and stop doing it. We can also leave pieces of ourselves dormant, which happens when we witness someone we respect reject someone else we are less likely to step into that same behavior for fear of rejection. Thirdly, we can fragment ourselves in what’s called the distorted part. This is when we allow pieces of ourselves to show through, but only in specific environments when we know we’re more likely to not experience rejection. Every single person walking the planet has fragmented themselves based on their conditioning. It doesn’t mean you’re living a terrible life; you can be incredibly successful and still fragment. A sign of fragmentation is triggered by someone displaying a specific behavior because that means you’ve encoded that behavior as bad. We end up draining our own energy by not owning these parts. That denial takes energy away from us, and when we open up, we can release and use that energy. The same way you have an arm and an elbow in your physical being, you have parts to your identity and spiritual being that is just as much a part of you as anything else. With women in particular, as we pick up more roles in life, we start establishing all these rules for ourselves of what we’re “supposed” to be in these roles. For example, when we step into motherhood, we can no longer be a boss or a sexy minx because our conditioning says mothers can’t be those things. So we start repressing those parts of us to be what we think of as a proper mother. Marina invites you to explore what makes your identity, is something serving you, and think of what life would be like if you welcomed those parts back into expression. What You Will Learn: What parts and fragmentation are, and why we repress them. How repression of those parts drains our energy. What we can reclaim those parts.

Fear of Success & Failure
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina discusses how we can only manifest what our system allows. She explores the concepts of inner floors and ceilings we all have in our lives and how our reality reflects our inner codes. Only once we truly understand that can we step in and call what we want. Codes are learned concepts we hold ourselves to, and they ultimately create a cage of conditioning. And most of us aren’t even aware of it. It doesn’t matter if your life is amazing or not. We all have something inside the matrix of all of our codes that creates a floor and ceiling that keeps us “safe.” Without growth work, we cannot reach anywhere above that ceiling of our cage that’s limiting us. When we’re in a cage, we might not be happy, but our system is happy because it knows what’s happening. It keeps up in belonging and the routine. The unconscious mind likes to lock in because so many of our actions and movements are unconscious so the brain can conserve energy. When we consciously try to reach above our ceiling, our system gets a little freaked out. The fear of success is more common than people realize. We know we can do it, but our codes interfere. To move past that ceiling, we need to do that work and update our codes to be more in alignment with what we’re trying to achieve. We manifest what our system allows, so allow it, and then you get to have it. But when we fear success, we’re afraid that we’re going to lose another by achieving one thing. Hitting our ceiling back bouncing back down isn’t like a sabotaging cycle. Your goal is not to eliminate the ceiling or the floor but elevate them. What You Will Learn: How our codes define our walls and ceiling. Where the fear of success comes from and how to combat it. Tips for redefining our codes so we can elevate our ceiling and floor.

#1 Block to Becoming Our Higher Self
On the Marina Perry Podcast this week, Marina discusses how to get around the number one block to being your best self. We often talk about our best self being our higher self or next-level you. It’s an ever-evolving concept, and the block that’s stopping us from being our best selves is identity coherence. Identity coherence is when we believe we are a certain way and actively work to match that perceived identity. The problem is, that our best self is a different version of us. So if we’re always working to match the identity of what we think we are, we’re never going to be able to change into a better version. The etymology of the word “identity” is “same,” meaning when you identify with something, you’re saying you’re the same as it. So we construct this cage of our own making, and only you have the power to change. This doesn’t mean that the you you are right now can’t have the life you want. It means you aren’t a match. We live in a magnetic universe, and we attract the things that we are, not the things we want. To close the gap between what we are and what we want to be, we have to stop limiting our identities and blocking our birthright. When we’re in our wholeness, we are everything, and when we’re everything, we can have anything. What You Will Learn: What Identity Coherence is, and why it blocks us from becoming our better selves. Tips for battling Identity Coherence to become our better selves. What we can do to update our identity.

Decision Making & Open Loops
On the Marina Perry Podcast this week, Marina discusses being overwhelmed as a form of sabotage. Often the reason we feel overwhelmed is that we have too many open loops. Open loops can be anything from a conversation you're putting off, a task you haven't done, or any number of things, and they mentally drain us. Our brain is wired to remember and focus on incomplete tasks. When you have a lot of open loops, you want to take them out of your head. Writing a list is one of the quickest ways to take open loops out of your head because it puts the responsibility of remembering in the list and not your brain. Another thing you can do is start ticking off some of the smaller tasks and close those smaller loops. Outsourcing and delegating tasks to others is a great way to increase your capacity when you're feeling overwhelmed. Asking for help is a superpower, but you want to make sure you're handing over those tasks to people you trust. That way, you can fully outsource the responsibility to them. Open loops from an inability to make decisions can be incredibly overwhelming, so practice the art of decision making to close them. Decisions aren't permanent, and you can always change your mind later. What You Will Learn: How too many open loops leads to being overwhelmed Tips for managing and closing loops Why decision making can help you feel less overwhelmed

Life Journeys w/ Rudi Landmann
On the Marina Perry Podcast this week, Marina chats with personal growth coach Rudi Landmann about life journeys and how we don’t always follow the path we expect ourselves to. Rudi came from a very sedentary lifestyle, ate fast food multiple times a week, and was unhealthily overweight. So they decided to take a more athletic path. But even at their peak physical health, when Rudi looked in the mirror and photographs they were still no happier than before. They were proud of those accomplishments, but it was a huge shock to realize they still weren’t happy. The turning point for Rudi was walking by an athletics store and seeing a pair of women’s tights they loved. It started this narrative in Rudi’s head of why they couldn’t wear them if they wanted to. It took many tries to get the courage to not only buy the tights, but wear them out in public. But once they did, the fear and resistance Rudi was anticipating didn’t happen. Rudi even received compliments. The biggest thing standing in Rudi’s way wasn’t other people, but it’s the paradigm and resistance they were adhering to. We have to retrain our beliefs to fit a different paradigm and clothes were the start for Rudi to wonder if maybe they weren’t the person they always thought they were. How masculinity is enacted in society is dangerous and toxic. Not just to women and children but men themselves. Many misogynies and violent reactions to womanhood are so grounded in our society that they’re not just targeted at biological women but femininity as a whole. It’s anything outside the tightly held distinction of what is “properly male.” This holds to masculine and feminine energies, too, not just physical presentations. We know that people who do not conform to traditional gender identities or presentations are often ridiculed and even murdered. For Rudi, it’s never gone past verbal abuse, and it’s always been by a specific group of male-presenting individuals in packs. Rudi went from being a larger male most of his life who didn’t think twice about walking alone at night to someone cautious about where they are and who is around them. In contrast, the women in Rudi’s life have been unendingly supportive. Rudi isn’t sure if their two sons (age 10 and 8) even perceive a difference. The boundaries of what male behavior should be or look like have been expanded by their involvement in Rudi’s journey. Raising sons was something Rudi was concerned with at first because of their struggle with gender identities, but Rudi realized that navigating masculinity isn’t something they have to teach. Their sons are already so immersed in it and have the freedom to decide for themselves what it looks like. The key is learning discord and unhappiness have a source. There could be a wound inside you caused by societal conditioning and inauthenticity, and to find inner happiness, you need to dive deep into yourself. We need to find that sense of liberation and expansion, and the more we are with ourselves in freedom and self-exploration unironically, the happier we are. What You Will Learn: Background on Rudi and how journeys can lead in unexpected directions. The dangers of toxic masculinity, not just to women and children, but men as well. Specific experience Rudi has and what they took away from them.

What I Learned from my Brain Bleed w/ Harlow Perry
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina chats with her daughter, Harlow, to share her experience, learnings, and lessons over the last year. For new listeners, Harlow experienced a severe medical condition called AVM, or “bleed on the brain,” which is a misformation of blood vessels that can result in a rupture. Harlow’s vessel ruptured last year at school. For her, it presented at first like a migraine, but as time went on, Harlow and her family realized her symptoms were much more severe than an average migraine. That led them to seek medical treatment right away. Because of the area of Harlow’s bleed, medical professionals kept her in the ICU for several weeks. They needed to wait for the bleeding and swelling to go down to figure out what exactly happened. In recovery, Harlow had a hard time reading, which was especially hard for her since reading is an important hobby. At first, the doctors decided not to operate due to multiple factors, including Harlow’s age and the area of the AVM. After months of pushing back her return to school due to complications, they eventually decided to go ahead with the surgery. She had a phenomenal recovery process and eventually returned to school, which presented other challenges since she’d been absent for so long. Her friends were incredibly excited to see her, but they knew the teachers now, and Harlow didn’t. They hand inside jokes she wasn’t in on anymore. It didn’t help that Harlow was only going to school part-time. She tried very hard to care about the small things like the school dance or a new pet, but she found it hard to relate. She went through this particular experience of continued recovery from major brain surgery. While her friends worried about what they would be wearing to the dance, she was concerned about the results of her follow-up appointments and life-threatening complications. We all go through events in our lives, whether in childhood or later in adulthood, and we survive. But what we sometimes don’t realize is we are forever changed as a result of that experience, and as we’re going through one pathway, the rest of life is going through another. Often we’re all-consumed in an area of life, or we’ve diverged in a different direction. So if we’re still trying to keep alive a section of society that no longer adds to our lives, we need to permit ourselves to let it go. What You Will Learn: Background on Marina’s daughter Harlow and her experience with AVM. Harlow’s journey through surgery and recovery. The learnings and takeaways she gained through the experience.

Whole Woman Livestream Series Pt 3 w/ Kira Love
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina chats with Kira Love in this part 3 live special exploring what it means to be a whole woman. Kira is a gender intelligence business and relationships coach and embodies women empowering women. So many women are taught not to focus on themselves, but we fail to realize that when we focus on self-care, pleasure, and needs in life, we're better at helping others. We're raised with societal pressures on us based on others' perceptions of what it means to be a woman, and it manifests differently. For example, some girls are taught to be less bossy and not "too much," whereas others are celebrated for those more masculine traits. There's such a lack of self-love, self-trust, and emotional freedom, which strangles the spark from our lives. The journey to wholeness starts at healing those voids and quieting inner criticism. Women drive the emotional tone of the household, and when we don't have inner peace, the home doesn't have a state of peace either, no matter how loving we are. Wholeness means understanding that the most connected and intimate relationships start with ourselves. There's an element of self-awareness to wholeness and understanding that we unconsciously choose the direction and context of our lives. We battle so many undercurrents daily, and many are out of our control, such as race and sexual orientation. Women are facing challenges now that we didn't have to face sixty years ago, and many of those challenges are in our relationships and careers. There's a balance between masculine and feminine energy, and how we allow these pressures, elements, and constant battles to define our womanhood is entirely up to us. What You Will Learn: The different ways wholeness in womanhood manifests within us The power and influence women naturally have in their households and communities Current issues faced by many modern women and how we can overcome them

Whole Woman Livestream Series Pt 2 w/ Devashi Shakti
This week on the Marina Perry Podcast, Marina chats with Devashi Shakti about fostering wholeness in womanhood in this part 2 live special. Devashi has been a leader in the feminine embodiment space for years and creator of Tigress Yoga- yoga for women by women-centered around female empowerment. Today, being a woman amplifies the incredible challenge of embodying trust and surrender in uncertain times. To feel safe in our body and trust the divine plan for humanity. Practicing to surrender is about trusting the intellect of your instinctive body, which has far more knowledge than we realize. It's about trusting the bigger parts of yourself that know precisely what's going on and how to lead you through this time and leaning into them. Paying attention to the subtle experiences of your body can help. When someone is so dysregulated and wounded, they pass on to the people they encounter each day. Being on the receiving end of that trauma is like an artificial veil over the truth, and we mistakenly believe things about ourselves and our worth. The wholeness journey is an opportunity to cleanse yourself of trauma and clear that out of your space so that you can be more complete. Just because we can do something doesn't mean we always should. Humanity can evolve to be truly wise and constantly learning more, and a lot of the work is letting go of false perception. As we become older and wiser, the discernment point is, "at what cost," and where we hold the line and say we've gone too far. Will we be brave enough to make that correction when that moment comes? The ability of women to imprint their children with experience is unbelievably essential to furthering humanity. Listen to your inner knowing even when it's heavily contrasted with the status quo and cultivate that learning. It starts with being willing to face contrast—question what your soul is driving you to question and have the courage to follow through on it. What You Will Learn: What it means to be a modern woman and the struggles of wholeness How trauma plays into the wholeness journey What we can do to not only develop our own wholeness but pass our experiences on to the next generation

Whole Woman Livestream Series
Many parents encourage women to grow up like men and not to need a man but to be strong and dependable on their own. The issue is that it raises women prone to hyper-independence and self-reliance. They often struggle with depending on others and believe they must do everything independently. While it’s great for building strong and resilient people, it also causes them to push away great relationships with people that come into their lives. Whether it’s setting aside exercise or time to read a book, we must be taking care of ourselves by putting ourselves first. We are valuable people, and we can’t keep serving others unless we take time to serve ourselves, too. The practice of being in nothingness can help you be more present at the moment, more in-tune with yourself and your needs, and have an easier time dropping into the present at a moment’s notice. We have so many different parts, so being in our wholeness means being with all parts of us. It means bringing all those contradicting parts together physically, emotionally, and spiritually to be our more complete selves. Attunement is an ever-evolving, constantly expanding the concept and is something that as you work with it, you will become more and more finitely attuned to yourself and the world. As you continue in your journey, the nuances you experience allow you the room to check yourself and expand into a more in-tune, more enlightened person offering the highest level of service to your fellow human. So, if you’re feeling stuck or small, inquire. Curiosity is a superpower. Look at what is alive within you and what your soul calls for you to do. What You Will Learn: What it means to be a woman and the preconceived notions we often grow up having. How taking time to serve yourself can help you serve others. The importance of ever-evolving attunement to being your whole self.

73 - Purpose & Self-Awareness w/ Tino Beth
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Marina Perry Podcast. This week, Marina is joined by Tino Beth. Tino assists leaders and entrepreneurs to engineer their purpose in the quantum field, update self-awareness, and manage mental health. How Tino got into his industry was very much a Hero's Journey, or a transformative pathway through life that acts as a "call to adventure." After leaving his full-time job several years ago, Tino decided not to continue down a tried-and-true career path and instead reinvented his life. He looked deep within to figure out what he could contribute most to society, which led him to help others reach their higher selves through their connection to the quantum field. Everything you think about has an aspect of and is connected to the quantum field. It can come in "yes" or "no," taking very linear representations. Your mindset is your quantum sender and receiver, so if you think about why something is too hard or why you can't do it, that's tapping into the "no" side. Shifting to the "yes" is as simple as changing the thought process around it. The goal is to bring consciousness and attention into our automated mental loop to create different outcomes. The key to creating more self-awareness is to check in with all the quantum loops we hold with us every day and not let one sideswipe your attention or take you off guard. Consciousness changes the state of things at the quantum level, and developing consciousness through self-awareness means identifying what will accelerate your journey the most so you can focus your attention there. Tino encourages you to reflect, sit back, and adjust as you go. Don't be afraid of the unknown and take little steps throughout the day, whether a different route to work or a new break in routine, to get more accustomed to living there. The biggest mistake many people make is allowing too many ideas into their minds that aren't their own. There's no firewall checking that everything fits with our neuro-network we've developed over our entire lives. When you're working with quantum feedback and coming into mastery, you're going from learning the mind into the infinite. That's why people who work with quantum fields talk about collapsing time and speeding up manifestation. There is a natural call and response when you're in tune with your consciousness in nature. Nature reflects it and steers you in the direction you need to go. The power of the universe is living within you, and all you have to do is have the courage to trust and follow it. Awareness has no limits. Now is the time to double down and focus on where your place in the universe is. What You Will Learn: What the quantum field is and how it connects to the conscious and unconscious mind. Tino's tips for increasing self-awareness and cultivating more complete consciousness. What you can do to utilize quantum fields to better manifest goals, level up in life and career, and reach a higher self.

72 - Balancing a Multifaceted Life w/ Jade Start
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Marina Perry podcast. Joining Marina today is Jade Spear, founder of Jade Start, mother, and lawyer, to discuss balancing a multifaceted life. So many people go into entrepreneurship thinking it will be all about freedom and getting to call the shots. But what they end up doing is working longer, harder, and being paid less than they expected. It's all about aligning with your business and not doing it purely for the money. It's a lot harder than being an employee, so you need to make sure you have a purpose there. When you're looking for your purpose or your "why," it's often right underneath your nose, and you don't even know it. It's the things you're naturally drawn to, good at, love doing, or have familiarity with. It's often so obvious to you because they're part of who you are. A great place to start is asking others in your life what impression they have of you or what things about you stand out to them. As you realize those things about yourself, you can connect the dots in different ways and try strategies until you get to where you want to be. We need to eliminate the fear of failure and lean into trying new ideas. The second biggest mistake Jade sees in fledgling entrepreneurs is not putting the right structure in place, to begin with. Maybe they didn't get the right advice on what business to set up and company structure, and they grew too fast. No one thinks their business will be successful the first time around, but if you don't prepare for success, you'll end up causing yourself a lot of issues on the back end. Lastly, many newbie entrepreneurs don't take the time to learn about their ideal client, which leaves their messaging and marketing too broad. So they end up frustrated and frazzled. Many people are resistant to niche-ing their business because they feel like they might be missing out on a lot of business in other places, but there's an art to knowing when to niche things down and keep things broad. When it comes to being a parent and an entrepreneur, the key is to set very clear boundaries with yourself and know where the limit is at all times. Being a business owner allows you the opportunity to design your life with flexibility, so you don't have to make sacrifices you don't want to in either world. Integrating time management and delegation, communication, and respect into your business and family models will help you achieve that flexibility. Often we find ourselves resistant to locking ourselves in because we're not sure that's the final path. However, that's something that evolves with us, and in business, you can be years down the line and decide to take things in a new direction. If you want to achieve something, the first step is being audacious, setting yourself in the right environment, and surrounding yourself with people who support you the whole way through. Whenever you feel a little bit of self-doubt, remind yourself of all the things you've already accomplished you never thought you'd do and give yourself a little pep talk. Belief is key. No one will make your life work for you, create the change you want, or execute the ideas in your heads. You can only achieve the things you believe you can achieve. And if someone doesn't believe in you, find someone who does. What You Will Learn: Background on Jade Spear and her work as a business owner and entrepreneur.

71 - Medicinal Mushrooms & Activating Energy w/ Mason Taylor
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Marina Perry podcast. Joining Marina today is Mason Taylor, owner and founder of SuperFeast, one of the foremost companies offering tonics, herbs, and medicinal mushrooms. Mason started with mushrooms twelve years ago when he began a journey into better health and wellness. The herbs, mushrooms, and berries Mason works with have been identified worldwide as the herbs that modulate the body, and tonic herbs have long been called the Bridge to Heaven. As you become more familiar, you'll learn which herbs help your body the best, balance your yin and yang, and help you cultivate life. The first herbs Mason went into were medicinal mushrooms because practitioners have revered them for thousands of years. They can stimulate the immune system, and if you give the immune system what it needs, it hits receptors that turn pathways on. This can regulate better and even fight infection. Mason recommends listening to your body and using your intuition when including herbs and mushrooms into your wellness routine. For example, some people like cycling, and others prefer taking the same product every day. Mason also explains how important it is that we sustainably get these herbs and not rip the earth apart to get them. No matter what you pick to start with, you're going to get your foot in the door, and that's what's most important. Mason also recommends starting with at least two herbs and going from there with adding and taking away. Other than that, Mason can offer some guidance, but there aren't many rules because it's such a personal experience. If you're looking to activate energy, look at your sleep hygiene to determine what kind of energy you're lacking and why. When you're lacking empowerment, you've most likely fallen into some ideological doctrine, and you're confused due to apathy, or you've gone far into a halting mindset. Mason recommends starting to contradict yourself in a safe space and looking at the people opposing your narrative to determine why it's triggering to you. Remember, true intelligence is the capacity to hold two opposing ideas simultaneously and still thrive. And take medicinal mushrooms! What You Will Learn: Background on Mason and what led him to work with mushrooms. The best places to start working with medicinal mushrooms. Mason's tips and recommendations for using medicinal mushrooms. Social Handles: https://superfeast.com

70 - Blended Families, Entrepreneurship, & Multi-Passionate Living w/ Sophie Guidolin
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Marina Perry Podcast! This week, Sophie Guidolin joins Marina to discuss parenting, entrepreneurship, and multi-passionate living. She is a woman’s health and fitness expert, social media star, and business entrepreneur. Sophie has half a million followers on Instagram alone and prides herself on keeping her content very authentic. But she does admit it can be a lot to manage. Several years ago, she reached a point of burnout after consistently posting and prioritizing what she thought everyone wanted to see. So she took back control and set very clear boundaries to only see what and how much she wanted to share. Her advice is to own the fact that not everyone will like you, and don’t let that stop you from being who you are. When you find your people, they will accept you 100% as you are, and the more you are true to yourself, the more you’ll attract the right people. The key to juggling her social platform with her parenting and business life is through organized chaos. Sophie has shared diaries and calendars with her ex-husband, kids, and friends so that everyone can have access to what’s going on in her life. It also helps that she loves what she does, so managing her business and releasing new products doesn’t feel like work. She’s learned many business lessons the hard way, like managing staff and delegating the right tasks to the right people. It took hitting rock bottom for Sophie to finally prioritize and reorganize her alignment to stop chasing the next best thing. When it comes to making a blended family work, the most important thing is to take the ego out of it. When a partnership breaks down, we tend to get so caught up in ourselves we forget that there are children involved. Not every relationship is meant to last forever because we are all supposed to grow constantly, so it’s natural to outgrow each other. It was so important to Sophie and her ex-husband that their children don’t grow up into adults that need to heal. They were able to separate their lives before things got to an ugly place. Independence and free-thinking have always been essential aspects of Sophie’s parenting style. She believes the best lessons are often the hard ones, so she’s not a helicopter parent. We need to learn to allow others to have their own beliefs and sit with someone else’s perspective we might not necessarily share. Journaling can give you immense perspective into your mindfulness and help you feel secure and empowered enough in yourself to sit comfortably with someone else. Be authentically who you are because you’re the one who has to live your life. What You Will Learn: How Sophie manages her online presence on a platform of half a million followers. Several hard lesions Sophie learned throughout her entrepreneurship. Sophie’s tips for managing blended families.

69 - Personal Entrepreneurship & Financial Sovereignty w/ Todd Polke
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Marina Perry Podcast! This week, Todd Polke discusses personal entrepreneurship and financial sovereignty. Freedom is our birthright, and when we're born into society, we give up a lot of our freedoms to fit into that society. Financial sovereignty comes down to privacy, control, and safety, and when you seek sovereignty, you are taking that freedom back. If we succeed, we have the opportunity to create a different reality without anything wanting us to stay in line. Feeling safe in your finances can look different to everyone, and when your income is outside your control or private, there's not any way for you to feel safe. Every person is running a personal wealth business, which is figuring out how to take income from different areas and invest it into a diverse and sustainable portfolio that delivers month in and month out. Unfortunately, most people don't implement everything they need to get the results they're looking for, and they need to focus on raising financial intelligence to make better quality financial decisions. That way, they can install a more effective personal finance system. There is never a perfect time to get started, and so many people buy into the idea that they need to wait until "the right time" to build their finances and personal wealth. As a result, they end up sitting on the plan for years and never take any action. Todd encourages you to take personal responsibility because you can move forward and step up to the plate the moment you leave those excuses behind. We can't let ourselves get stuck in the loop, so the next step is to focus on habits and form actionable plans. Everyone has the potential to take back their finances, and when your money is in the bank, it's not your money. The bank has it and is allowing you to use it. When you factor in inflation as well, your money is losing value while it sits there. So even though you feel secure leaving it in the bank, it's not working nearly as hard as it could be. It's important to remember that there's not a one-size-fits-all approach, so setting your pillars to determine your strategy is key. Every single person can take back their freedom and create financial sovereignty. All it needs is you taking that first step, so don't wait. What You Will Learn: What financial sovereignty is. What it means to reclaim your financial sovereignty. Actionable steps you can take in your life to build your financial portfolio.

68 - Procrastination, Awareness, & Self-Care w/ Erika Belanger
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Marina Perry Podcast! This week, Erika Belanger joins Marina to discuss yoga, meditation, and procrastination. Erika is a certified yoga instructor, life coach, and host of the On And Off Your Mat Podcast and has dedicated years of her life to the practice of yoga and self-enlightenment. Many people start yoga because of the exercise aspect, and it's truly one of the best places to start. But, in reality, it's only an eighth of the practice itself. The way we treat ourselves and others, breath practice, and meditation are also large pieces of yoga outside the physical movement. The exercise benefits are amazing, but yoga is ultimately training you for an ability to come into stillness with self. Erika also uses daily practice for stress management and feeling more comfortable in her body. There's a lot of potential for yoga to help you self-regulate your central nervous system and gain the self-knowledge and understanding you need to serve yourself better every day. The practices we do every day on the mat are things we can take with us off the mat to help manage our attachments, stress, and emotional responses. If you take out the achievement-based result, can you see the practice as a way to set the tone for your day or week? Maybe you're showing up calmer or more energized and can better do the things you have to do. Procrastination is the action of unnecessarily delaying something we should do, must do, or even want to do, almost like a force that prevents us from following through. It breaks our self-trust over time and even can be a form of self-harm and self-sabotage. Procrastination is a mechanism of negative mood repair, which means you're trying to avoid a negative feeling, so you're avoiding the task to avoid the discomfort that comes with it. There are so many solutions to procrastination, but not all of them will work for you. So building awareness around your pattern will give you access to the right solution for your situation. Then, the strategy is to interrupt the behavior, and naturally, you're going to start replacing the undesired action with something better. It's important that you show yourself a little grace and not beat yourself up because that makes the process even harder. Take any action as soon as you can and celebrate yourself for it. Time isn't the issue, so saying "I don't have time" doesn't make sense. Instead, Erika encourages you to rephrase it as "x isn't a priority for me because y" to put perspective into why you're procrastinating. Looking at your excuses from a different angle will show you if you're prioritizing the things you want to be prioritizing. What You Will Learn: Why yoga is a practice rather than a physical exercise. What procrastination is and our motivations behind doing it. Tips and tricks for being more efficient in managing your procrastination.

67 - Pregnancy & Childbirth w/ Karen Searle
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Marina Perry Podcast. This week, Karen Searle joins Marina to discuss society's relationship with childbirth. Karen is a certified hypnobirthing educator and has 22 years of experience in midwifery, and her passion in life is helping women positively experience childbirth. Karen explains that a midwife is a carer with the skills and knowledge to care for women in pregnancy, labor, and post-labor to look after the physical and mental health of the mother while helping them navigate through the process. A doula is there solely to be with the woman, but they don't have any legal or formal medical training. Hypnobirthing helps women get into a positive mindset to go into birth with and understand she is safe and can do this. Evidence suggests women who hypnobirth and properly prepare for labor have a much more positive experience, require fewer interventions, and have a decreased need for pain relief. If you were going to go run a marathon, you'd train for that. Yet, most labors are as physically intense, if not longer-lasting, than most marathons, and most women don't prepare physically, let alone mentally and spiritually. So women need to understand what's happening to their bodies, that our pelvises are designed to stretch, and talk about the mindset behind labor and delivery. The aim is to provide a toolkit for pregnant women to use as often as they need to, including affirmations, partner support, and strategies for managing birth preferences. Hypnobirth also gives the partner, whether a spouse, significant other, friend, or family member, the opportunity to have a greater part of the birth experience. It's often easy to feel helpless and unsure of what to do during labor and delivery, and hypnobirth allows them to have purpose and control throughout the process. We need to remember our bodies were made to do this, and even in cases like Marina's, where medical intervention was necessary, bringing tools and strategies into your birthing experience will do nothing but help. Karen recommends sitting with yourself and listening to what you want. It's your birth journey and no one else's, so get as much information as you can from reputable sources. Decide what you want your experience to be like, and then find the right people to support you. What You Will Learn: The different aspects and benefits of hypnobirthing. How better preparing for your childbirth journey can impact the overall experience. What hypnobirth does to better prepare women and their partners for labor and delivery.
