Every Business Has A Story - Our Interview with Laura Coe of Snapology
We have a great show today. We are meeting with Laura Coe of Snapology. Snapology is a low cost, home-based, mobile business teaching robotics and STEAM principles through classes, camps, parties and other events. At Snapology, they understand that children are meant to learn through play. When children are actively engaged in hands-on, interactive learning activities, their creativity flourishes and they show a greater interest in school. If kids are happy, then parents are happy and your business will flourish. Snapology, a franchise that provides a fun, inviting environment for kids at all levels to gain valuable life skills involving STEM/STEAM, including logic and problem solving, as well as social skills and teamwork. Snapology’s adaptable, research-based curriculum allows children to learn through play. Every business has a story.Snapology was founded by two sisters, Lisa and Laura Coe, who decided to start their business after seeing the love their children had for creative play using building blocks and other materials that snap together. Laura found that her son’s love of LEGO’s helped calm him down when he was dealing with mild behavior issues. She looked for local programs that he could join, but could not find any that fit. Together the sisters came up with the idea of offering enrichment classes and camps to teach science, technology, engineering, mathematics, art and literacy concepts. Listen to our interview with Laura Coe. In part two, we will play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
Laura Coe | Emotional Obesity, The Art of Authenticity, & The Akashic Records
The Great Unlearn
I’ve known Laura Coe for over 20 years, but we hadn’t really connected since our 20s before she reached out to me a couple of years ago. It was initially for some advice, but Laura actually ended up catalyzing some huge shifts in my life — a wonderful conversation on her show The Art of Authenticity (https://lauracoe.com/cal-callihan/) helped me realize I love making podcasts and her support as a coach helped me overcome the self-doubt I was struggling with as I tried to uplevel my life and unlearn the programming that was holding me back. Laura is also the author of Emotional Obesity: A Philosophical Guide to Lighten Your Life (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QXXFUKS) and, as both as an author and as a coach, she helps others understand esoteric philosophical ideas and ancient wisdom so that they anyone can apply these important (but often linguistically obscure) lessons to their own lives. One of the ancient tools she uses is the Akashic records and, if you haven’t heard of this before, you’re in for a treat in this episode — it’s fascinating, and it ties into why Laura reached out to me in the first place. We Discuss: 06:15 - A story about 20-year-old Cal 10:20 - Recognizing that surrender isn’t always a bad thing 14:20 - Sitting in stillness to learn about yourself 18:30 - How society causes us to internalize certain ideas about our identity and self 28:40 - We’re here for lessons 30:45 - The Akashic records 40:35 - How we’re all being sold fake truths and solutions online 47:05 - When we look to others for models for success, is it coming from fear and lack or is it coming from a place of interest in knowledge? 54:00 - Accepting that there is no end goal to spiritual or personal growth that you can achieve in one human lifetime Resources: Listen to my interview on Laura’s show: “Cal Callihan: Wall Street to Spiritual Warrior” (https://lauracoe.com/cal-callihan/) Read: Emotional Obesity: A Philosophical Guide to Lighten Your Life (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QXXFUKS) Sign up for my monthly newsletter: thegreatunlearn.com/newsletter (https://www.thegreatunlearn.com/newsletter) The Mastery of Love (https://www.amazon.com/Mastery-Love-Practical-Relationship-Toltec/dp/1878424424/ref=pd_sbs_14_3/147-8053530-7502953?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1878424424&pd_rd_r=13795026-de79-4bed-bf6c-1478475ad62c&pd_rd_w=QwD3n&pd_rd_wg=1mMdO&pf_rd_p=7cd8f929-4345-4bf2-a...) by Don Miguel Ruiz The Mastery of Self (https://www.amazon.com/Mastery-Self-Toltec-Personal-Freedom/dp/1938289692/ref=pd_sbs_14_4/147-8053530-7502953?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1938289692&pd_rd_r=13795026-de79-4bed-bf6c-1478475ad62c&pd_rd_w=QwD3n&pd_rd_wg=1mMdO&pf_rd_p=7cd8f929-4345-4bf2-a554-7d...) by Don Miguel Ruiz Connect with Laura Coe: Website | lauracoe.com (http://lauracoe.com/) Instagram | www.instagram.com/laurascoe (https://www.instagram.com/laurascoe/) Twitter | twitter.com/laurascoe (https://twitter.com/laurascoe) Facebook | www.facebook.com/emotionalobesity (https://www.facebook.com/emotionalobesity) Connect with Cal: Website | https://www.thegreatunlearn.com (https://www.thegreatunlearn.com/) Instagram | https://www.instagram.com/bunkercal/ (https://www.instagram.com/bunkercal/) Twitter | https://twitter.com/BunkerCal (https://twitter.com/BunkerCal) Facebook | https://www.facebook.com/BunkerCal (https://www.facebook.com/BunkerCal) YouTube | The Great Unlearn (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCneI0an6qiL7t-7sne9TjhQ) Subscribe to the Great Unlearn Podcast: Apple Podcasts | https://apple.co/3a4ATpc (https://apple.co/3a4ATpc) Spotify | https://spoti.fi/2Rb7emv (https://spoti.fi/2Rb7emv)
The otherside of authenticity: Laura Coe | Author, Coach, Entrepreneur
The Open Honest and Direct Podcast
When the business Laura Coe created sold to a Fortune 500 company, Laura took the path less often taken, leaving corporate America to pursue her lifelong passions of philosophy, coaching and spirituality. She wrote her first book, Emotional Obesity and started the popular podcast, The Art of Authenticity. In today's episode, Laura takes us through her journey, sharing how she knew it was time to leave and what life was like for her on the other side.
Laura and I explore the feelings and emotions around our environmental behavior, specifically that we don't like, like throwing away food. I predict you'll find her descriptions of how people feel familiar.In other episodes I've shared how I find that our emotions are causing our environmental problems, not CO2. The behavior of CO2 simply results from our behavior. That's why I feel what's missing is leadership: influencing people's emotions. Now people consider acting on the environment a chore, distraction. If we want people to like acting on their environmental values, it will help to help them connect rewarding emotions.Laura describes the emotional landscape of someone not acting on their values, and how to change them. This concept of saying people don't care inhibits people from acting. I find everyone cares. To say the don't makes them feel you don't understand them, which undermines your ability to influence them.I can't stand people making environmental behavior a moral issue. If you say to someone that they don't care, they think, "I do care. If you think I don't, up yours. You're not superior." But discounting others' emotions and cares create more counterproductive results: it leads them to think of their justification for what behavior affected the environment, reinforcing the feeling you're trying to change.It's like when trying to attract a guy or girl who isn't showing you attention. I recommend not asking, "why don't you find me attractive?" or similar questions. Whatever feelings they had, you led them to voice them, which solidifies and strengthens them. Now they find you less attractive more strongly.Tell someone they don't care about the environment and you lead them to keep doing what they were doing.People have done it with you.Laura speaks thoughtfully and with experience on how we feel and react, which I consider the major frontier for environmental action now that the science is clear. It's also most people's major frontier to improve their lives. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
192: Laura Coe, part 1: Emotional Obesity and Environmental Obesity
This Sustainable Life
Laura and I go back a few years, from being on her podcast.We talk about her concept of emotional obesity: a parallel between physical health and emotional health. I find it a rich analogy on many levels. Characteristics of addiction to food that cause obesity resemble thoughts that cause emotional obesity.She describes her concept in more detail, but I find most helpful about it that it enables you to make yourself emotionally healthy in the ways you make yourself physically healthy. You'll note the parallels in problem and solution as she describes it.Think of thoughts you kick yourself with. If your friend said those things you'd leave that friend. Yet we keep doing it, unable to see that we can stop it.Dwelling in unproductive thoughts and blame doesn't help.We expand it to environmental obesity, where we look at addictive environmental behaviors, another approach that helps understand and solve behaviors we don't like.

Are You Emotionally Obese? An Interview with Laura Coe
Love Your Life Show
Are You Emotionally Obese? I'll bet you understand what it means to have gained some unwanted physical weight and how that can impact your physical health. I'll bet you also understand which of the habits or behaviors you did to gain that weight? Maybe ate some extra food or skimped on sleep? Have you ever thought of how you may be carrying extra emotional weight? Or which of your mental habits and behaviors led to that emotional weight gain? Today's our lucky day. Author, Coach, and Podcaster, Laura Coe, joins the Love Your Life Show and we discuss emotional health in a way that's really easy to understand. We describe what emotional obesity is and also give specific guidance on how to lose the emotional weight that's holding us back. The minute I heard of her book and the term emotional obesity, I knew I had to get her on the show. Laura's work helps us look at something we accept (habits and behaviors needed for physical health) to help us see where our habits and behaviors are impacting our emotional health. Listen in as we give your real tools and advice on how to lose the emotional weight and dig into living a life that feels as good on the inside as it looks on the inside. Further, make sure you're a part of our private Facebook Community as we will be discussing this book (and doing some of the exercises!). https://www.facebook.com/groups/smbwell The post Are You Emotionally Obese? An Interview with Laura Coe appeared first on Susie Pettit.
Emotions are an essential part of our human design. Ignoring, denying, or feeling shame about having them will only weigh you down with emotional obesity. Emotions are an energy that you get to feel, accept, and examine."

Discover how to enlighten your life by letting go of the emotional weight, discovering your truth, and living an authentic life. "People have this idea that having emotions means there's something wrong with them. There's nothing wrong with us; it's just how we're designed as humans. Accept, examine, and then let your feelings go." - @laurascoe on @WellnessForce Radio episode 243 wellnessforce.com/243 Click here to get your copy of Emotional Obesity by Laura Coe Every year, we spend millions of dollars on healthcare and beauty systems. Our days begin with teeth brushing, hair combing, and perhaps even exercise. Even if there are still many who need persuading or incentivizing towards participating in such routines, there is a general consensus that these self-care rituals are good for us. But when it comes to our emotional health, we are taught from a young age to “get over” our feelings, and yet, in reality, most of us just stockpile them, carrying their weight throughout life. Even though we are not conscious of them, the feelings are weighing us down from the life we want to live. The messages they create—of not being good enough, not worthy, undeserving–become the guiding principles of our lives. Our goal is to become aware of our feelings. Then subscribe to the habit of daily rituals for our emotional health, just as we have for our physical health. By doing this we can free ourselves from the destructive and unresolved feelings of the unconscious mind and begin to direct our lives from our authentic self where our true passions and desires reside. Listen To Episode 243 As Laura Coe Uncovers: What society says about both men and women sharing their emotions plus what we can do to change that narrative. How emotional obesity is keeping us from living an authentic life that we live. What factors are piling on the stress and negative emotions we're experiencing as a society day to day in the USA. Why people feel like they're going crazy when they're just experiencing natural, human feelings. Emotional fitness and her guided exercise to help you grow your emotional strength. The moment she started her own emotional wellness journey after she sold her healthcare company and began seeking for something more authentic. Why success is path but purpose and fulfillment are so much more meaningful to us. First steps you can take to really get an inventory of what you're feeling and how to digest those emotions to find your purpose. How she helps people find and confront the fears that are holding them back from discovering their purpose. How to start being honest and authentic with yourself by asking simple questions like, "What do I really want? Do I want tea or coffee right now?" Anger and shame - how they let us know that something has triggered us so that we can learn more about why it bothered us so much. Emotional weight loss and how you can be more present with your body through this process. How to let your truth unfold and let go of the fear of change. Why your gut feelings might actually be a false sense that's keeping you from listening to your authentic self. How she listened to her own authentic self that warned her against doing business with a specific agent for her book because he wasn't right for her. Why your authentic self is presented to the world based on the choices you make every day. Why you don't have to rush into action but can go at your own pace and be genuine with each step you make. How we can let technology not get in the way of our health by being aware of how we use and interact with it. Power Quotes From The Show "Don't let emotions weigh you down. Instead, you have to get curious about yourself and accept that there's nothing right or wrong about feelings; they're just they're interesting pieces information." - @laurascoe on @WellnessForce Radio episode 243 wellnessforce.com/243 "We're aware of the impact that food has on our body but when it comes to our thoughts, we don't really consider how they impact our lives. What do you feel when you think of your outlook and perspective of the world, life, and yourself? Do they weigh you down? How can we get to a place where our thoughts don't feel heavy but instead we feel light, free, and content?" - Laura Coe "There's a tipping point where we become overly focused on the external world, people and their thoughts, other's approvals, and even our own thoughts. That's when we lose touch with that deep connection with our authentic self. These barriers of thoughts, knowledge, and focus on the outside world block us from focusing on ourselves and our internal compass and inner truth." - Laura Coe "This idea that the feelings we're having are somehow right or wrong is false. People often think having emotions means there's something wrong with them when what we feel is completely normal. Then, they feel amazed that they actually have all these emotions they're feeling. So, with each strong emotion, find out what triggered that reaction within you so you can grow, learn, and make a decision of what to do with that emotion." - Laura Coe "Some people don't know where to start at all with what they want to do with their lives. If that's you, it's a process to get there but it's not that difficult. It's really just learning what your unique talents are, what you feel uplifted towards, and then starting to pursue those things more and finding what feels more like play and enjoyment again to you in life." - Laura Coe "If I'm feeling angry about something while another person isn't, that's an inner energy that somehow was triggered in me. In moments like that, we want to start asking ourselves what's happening within us and get very curious about ourselves. To get curious about yourself, you have to be able to accept that there's nothing right or wrong about these emotional states; they're just happening and they're interesting pieces of information." - Laura Coe Links From Today's Show Laura Coe Facebook Twitter LinkedIn YouTube Emotional Obesity by Laura Coe The Art of Authenticity Podcast One on One Coaching with Laura Coe Figure out your emotional weight How To Conquer Fear: An Emotional Workout How To Have A Life Of Purpose The Value of Daily Emotional Workouts Do You Suffer From Emotional Obesity? 5 Essential Steps To A Cure Marianne Williamson Gary Vaynerchuk Tony Robbins WFR 223 Dr. Ruscio About Laura Coe Laura co-founded Litholink Corporation, a healthcare company serving over 350,000 patients per month nationally.

I enjoyed this conversation with today's guest, Laura Coe so much. We talked about some really practical things and laughed a lot at ourselves and how humans behave in today's interesting world. We explored how in every moment there's an infinite number of ways to interpret what happens and reclaiming the word "authenticity" which is both overused and misused in our content-heavy society. And we dove into some "big" topics like existentialism, self-regulation, and how suffering happens when we try to hold onto pleasure and push pain away. It's a very illuminating discussion, can't wait to hear what you get out of it! xo, E About Laura Coe: Laura co-founded Litholink Corporation, a healthcare company serving over 350,000 patients per month nationally.
