Living Authentically with Lani Scozzari
This was one of our favorite conversations to date. We honestly kept getting goosebumps throughout. Lani is a wife, mother, poet, extreme marathon runner and one of our best friends. She has just taken the big step of leaving the public school system so she can honor the calling of her soul to spend more time writing and to develop her coaching and public speaking practice. Lani is incredible at helping kids be heard and seen and helping parents to navigate healthy communication with their kids. During the conversation we talk about: - listening to the call of the soul. - Showing up authentically and with integrity when life throws you a curve ball. - Being able to stand in the messiness of it all with grace instead of shame. All the while she shares incredibly vulnerable, real life stories in a way that feels empowering and revolutionary. I can’t scream it loud enough - listen to this episode. If you liked to talk with Lani about coaching reach her via email at email@example.com

Are your beliefs limiting you?
On today’s episode we explore the common idea that very often in life we make choices for ourselves out of habitual thought patterns that dictate what we think we “should” do in any given situation. Rather than making decisions about what feels right for us or giving ourselves free reign to explore what it is that we actually want or need to do, instead we come up with all the excuses as to why we couldn’t shouldn’t or can’t do something - like go on a retreat, or have a truthful conversation, or ask for help or whatever the thing is for you..... During today’s conversation Leah brings an example from her own life where she recently had an opportunity to take a week of downtime on retreat, away from her family and responsibilities. Although she was fully supported by all the family - her children included, she still had a really hard time committing due to her sense of duty to others and to her “to do” list. What we began to unpack as we chatted, is that Leah is not alone in having these self limiting beliefs. In fact we all have them and if we aren’t careful these can become the default place from which we make important decisions.
