28- Rock Your BELIEF with Dwight Baker, Producer and Musician

BELIEF. Hoo boy... this one always proves to be tough for me! So all the more reason to dive in to what it truly means to believe. I took it to heart this week and put in the work to lean in and really find out what I needed to learn about belief. The podcast is in four segments, and here’s this week’s breakdown: 1: Rock Your Life with Amy: I had a crisis on day one, and recorded my mini-breakdown to share. Whether it's the world around us that seems to be falling apart more every day, or it's the matter of believing in ourselves, how can we truly believe? And even further, know? I find a common thread through the week's conversations, and it is this: keep going. That's belief in action. And that shows the universe that we do believe, even when it might feel as if we don't. Listen for my tearful moments and lots more today. And last week's free PDF and my 5-step habit building guide are both still available for download, too, just click the link! 2: The Interview (11:48): Interview this week is with Dwight Baker, porducer, songwriter and one half of the musical duo The Wind + The Wave. Dwight has told me for years, "You just have to believe." So I went to him when this topic came up to find out just what that meant to him, as he has had immense successes in his life, and I wanted to know how his belief aided in those. We talked about cliché believing, how it's easier for men than women, how belief can shift over time but still retain the same vision and bigness, body image issues, trying to prove something, positive thinking, the importance of truthful friends, and lots more. He also turns the subject around on me to ask if I’m really believing in what I do and directionally focused on believing in that. He says, “It’s about continuing to just do it. And the positive thinking is true in the sense that if you tell yourself, ‘I can’t do this, I can’t go on,’ then you’re right, you definitely can’t. And if you tell yourself, ‘I can do this,” you still might not be able to, but you have a way better chance of doing it if you do say that and believe in yourself.” Find Dwight on Instagram HERE and his fantastic band at The Wind + The Wave.com. 3: Go Aff Yourself (32:47) with Affirmation Maven Jill Faulkner of stickwithit.co: We recap signs and I recognize belief as my nemesis. We discuss belief in higher power and talk doubt, vision, and the deep seated problems we have truly believing. Can we brainwash ourselves into believing? And if we believe in other things, why can’t we parlay that belief into other things, like believing in ourselves? We discuss varying ways of belief including WW2, our president, and more. This week’s aff doesn’t come easy, but shakes out to the ultimately very self-help-y but very useful: I Choose to Believe in Myself. 4: BYOBBB (48:31) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: We cover branding as belief, and reach into how to achieve that and what it really means to believe in your brand. Also, we work on the limiting beliefs we may have in our business and our brands, and look at how to remain conscious in our own brand and those we work with. I talk about how I haven't truly embraced my brand over the years and the problem of that. We also hit on the importance of believing that being yourself is enough and finding your niche as that while building a brand foundationally.  Remember that you can access our free pdf from last week, too, that can help you with your brand values and the action you take.

27- Rock Your ACTION with Martha Pincoffs of Waking Giants

ACTION! Everybody wants action, right? But... which direction do we go? And are we taking the right action? How do we know? All this and lots more this week on Rock Your Life! The podcast is in four segments, and here’s this week’s breakdown: 1: Rock Your Life with Amy: While later in the episide we talk about lining our actions up with our values, I got to thinking this week about what my actions are showing me about my own value. Am I choosing the actions that reflect my own value? Hmm... often, I'm not, and I get real about that and more. I reevaluated my actions in that light and learned that we honor our value with our actions. And what is the feeling intended behind the actions we take? Listen for more, plus, Bijou and I have this week's FREE PDF available for download, and don't forget that last week's free habit building guide is still available for download, too! 2: The Interview (11:50): Interview this week is with Martha Pincoffs of Waking Giants, a subscription-based box service that centers on activism and providing people with the tools they need to move toward collective action to make change. We cover their accelerated need for realignment during this time, how Martha got started as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and advocating for rights, and she has practical tips for starting anywhere on whatever you care about: “You don’t have to change the whole entire world. Pick out something that you care about and maybe send a postcard. But just start, and start with reasonable expectations and let it fit in your life- whatever it is that your life looks like, if you are interested in moving justice forward, in whatever shape that takes, just start somewhere, anywhere.” I loved our conversation and the simple idea that nowadays, simply educating ourselves about trailblazers of the past can be a beautiful and worthy action. “Sometimes action- especially in these times- can be finding voices to be led by. Sometimes educating myself is the action i take. Because slowing down and reading a book and nourishing my understanding everybody who has come before and led before and all that they have sacrificed, and the trails that they’ve blazed. We stand on the shoulders of others," she says. You'll enjoy our conversation, listen for more, and follow her on Instagram as well HERE. 3: Go Aff Yourself (27:31) with Affirmation Maven Jill Faulkner of stickwithit.co:, Jill has a strange relationship with action, and we get into not only that, but trust, fear and finding signs to point us to the actions that are right for us. She brings up the negative association of force within action, and the problem thinking like that when it can result in inaction. For her, she is looking more for subtle actions that create long term change. Do we meet challenges to push through them? Or are challenges there to show us another path, and that there is resistance? We develop this week's beautiful aff from this concept: I Trust That I Am Guided to the Next Right Action. 4: BYOBBB (43:40) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: We address the actions we need to take in business, and how to align our core values with those actions. Are you doing what you need to do? She puts me on the spot and I know I am not, and she tells me this about taking action: "Everybody has trouble taking action, and the ones who succeed are the ones who get past it." She's right. Are we going to take the actions needed to succeed in our brands and our businesses? We talk about having too many words on your website, the power of 5 seconds, and lots more. And access our free pdf that can help you with your brand values and the action you take, and making sure you align! Please rate, review, and subscribe!

26- Rock Your ROUTINE with Mariska Nicholson of Olive and M Skincare

ROUTINE. What's sexy about routine? Well, while we agree that it might not be the sexiest topic, it's got it's own charm. It doesn't have to mean a rut, or drudgery. Let's dive in and see what we can rock about our routines. The podcast is in four segments, and here’s this week’s breakdown: 1: Rock Your Life with Amy: What, ultimately, is routine about? For me, it's about becoming better little by little, and becoming better is a way of showing gratitude for all that we have- even what we have that exists as potential. Need more clarification? Listen to my segment for my daily routines and more on what it can bring to us and our future selves! Also, I have a free offer available for download to help build new habits! 2: The Interview (19:16): Interview this week is with the very lovely Mariska Nicholson, founder of skincare line Olive + M. Mariska recognizes the obligatory nature of scheduling and we discuss that in contrast to the value of routine. She tells us her self care routine and her skin care routines, and how that helps calibrate the day ahead. She brings up the beautiful ability of being able to change our minds, and how now the grounding of our routines can be something we choose and that we can enjoy. “As I got older, and I saw the value of routine, I made friends with it. And I think that you have to do that with the things that you’re resistant to. If you can make friends with them, you dissolve the resistance, and then you can move to a different place with it.” Listen for lots more, and how she suggests ways to reframe routine! And follow her on Instagram as well HERE. 3: Go Aff Yourself (33:29) with Affirmation Maven Jill Faulkner of stickwithit.co:, How do we feel about routine and the “supposed to” nature of it? And how are we working the affs into it? Jill says she doesn’t have routines… and we dive into what that really means. What is the connotation of the word itself? What does it bring up in you- perhaps, the potential to fail? Routine is important now, and how can we foster that? We get into all this and also Jill's mew meditation practice. This week’s aff is: My Daily Life Includes All That I Need. 4: BYOBBB (48:51) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: Bijou and I talked her thoughts on routine in light of her own personal upheaval, and she gives solid advice on biz and brand routines. She shares also about her upcoming e-course and advice she got about implementing routine in our businesses, and with a bigger-picture scheduling effort: “You should be thinking about routine in your business by the day, by the week, by the quarter, by the year. And think about what that routine is, and religiously do it.” I ask what this means for someone like me, without a team, and she clarifies that I’m still a business, and it should happen no matter what your size. We may have to re-find our way with this and she encourages us to write that down. We cover how to deal with social media routine, how planning can benefit us, and our brain routines that are for brain optimization. Schedule time to make your routine, she says, and while she gives advice on how to go easy on yourself, the routine is about setting up a habit and it’s important to be diligent and consistent.

25-Rock Your SURRENDER with Kimi Inch, Dominatrix and Somatic Healer

SURRENDER. Surrendering to what life is showing us is way different than giving up. What does it mean, and how can we embrace more surrender, you ask? We got you this week! The podcast is in four segments, and here’s this week’s breakdown: 1: Rock Your Life with Amy: This week, I get real about the things that I truly need to surrender to, and the ones I have surrendered to in the past. Surrender can be easy, sure, but there are times in my life that it's been exceedingly difficult. I share about those particular times and what surrender really, truly means in my life. What does it really mean? Listen to my segment to find out! 2: The Interview (12:56): Interview this week is with Kimi Inch, aka Mistress Nina Payne. Kimi is professional dominatrix, a somatic therapist/healer for couples and individuals, a kink and BDSM expert, consultant and educator, and a core energetics practitioner. You can find her on Instagram @kimiinch or @domidollz, and at domidollz.com. We get into what kink means and the breakdown and psychology behind it, and the power exchange within that, and the control versus surrender that the type of play and work she engages in and fosters with others can have, including positive effects throughout our lives. We cover how we can hide the things we do and her process of surrender into who she truly was. “It’s really hard to surrender if you don’t trust, and if you don’t feel a sense of safety.” We cover how that can positively bring power to your whole life. And how so much of what she does isn’t about control, but rather, connection, and how that can be a form of vulnerability and surrender. “And that connection and dance is really what kink is, and if we could let go and apply that more to our lives, then imagine how much more freedom and choice and options that we would have.” It's such a great interview, listen from more! 3: Go Aff Yourself (30:39) with Affirmation Maven Jill Faulkner of stickwithit.co:, we talk surrender as letting go, and how it can be ironic that it’s hard to try to grasp the concept of something that is about loosening the grip—  and how we visualize surrender and how Jill feels it in the physical. What do what we envision with surrender? (Spoiler: Jill is laying on a cloud!) And leaning on trust in times of surrender, even when we don't understand our purpose. And this week’s aff keeps it simple: I Surrender. 4: BYOBBB (46:02) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: I ask Bijou a few hard questions, like: How much is surrender defining your life right now? We get into empathy and all the different types of surrender; our discussion on goals vs surrender; how we think everyone needs to record their own podcast; surrender to feelings vs events; how hard it is on your body when you don’t surrender, and how in business it can mean a pivot.

24- Rock Your POWER with Jeff Ward, SNN Talk Radio Host

POWER. How do we look at all the different facets of power, and what it means to us? From the control aspect, to giving it away to others, to specific ways to project it into the future, we got you this week with power! The podcast is in four segments, and here’s this week’s breakdown: 1: Rock Your Life with Amy: I have some legal things that can leave me feeling power-diminished, and I talk about one specifically and how I am dealing with it in relation to staying in my own power. It's tough when you have moments of inadequacy, loss, or situations that are out of your control. Especially when money comes into play, too. But it can be done. I talk about my process for staying in my power and the choices around that. Whew! 2: The Interview (13:46): Interview this week is with Jeff Ward, talk radio host of The Jeff Ward Show now on Statesman News Network. Jeff is a radio veteran with 20 years on KLBJ, and he was voted by the Austin Chronicle as the "Best Afternoon Host" five times. He is now hosting The Jeff Ward Show on SNN Mon-Fri 9 - noon. Jeff hides from his kids to get this chat done, and in doing so, he hits on what he has learned about what can take you out of the moment, and not to focus on that but rather to play the play, so to speak. We also cover the way that talk show hosts can be viewed and then we get into parenting , a little bit of chaos, and living in the moment and how that can be powerful in itself. 3: Go Aff Yourself (29:09) with Affirmation Maven Jill Faulkner of stickwithit.co:  What about when we feel power-less and out of alignment? And more importantly, what happens when we give our power away in relationships? What does that even really mean? When we are wanting to please others, that gives our power away. And we settle in real time on the aff today, and focus on taking full ownership of our own power. Jill also gives and an update on stickwithit.co, and this week’s Aff is: My Power Is Mine. 4: BYOBBB (43:55) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: We look through the lens of business, and at power vs control. How does being at home affect our power in business? And how can we use past times when we had a powerful feeling and project that into the future? We also talk about power being something we are grateful for and how to enact that into your daily practice. And finding that space where we don’t need to flex, but stand in our own power.

23- Rock Your COMFORT ZONE with John Gorman, Essayist and Storyteller

COMFORT ZONE.Uncomfortable in your comfy space? That’s what it’s all about, as this week we get into what rocks our comfort zone! How can we see that we've gotten out of it when we don't have perspective? Also, we find some practical ways to get out of it in quarantine, and more. The podcast is in four segments, and here’s this week’s breakdown: 1: Rock Your Life with Amy: Surrendering to the unknown and finding peace in that might be the most uncomfortable thing of all. We have to just give in, trust, and yeah, be vulnerable at times. And those can be hard internal places to go! We are forced into letting go of control right now, which is what comfort zone is all about - letting go of control and going into the unknown. But that's where we grow! Oh, and I take cold showers, which is wayyyy outside my CZ... listen for that. 2: The Interview (13:46): Interview this week is with John Gorman, essayist, storyteller, speaker, and top-100 Medium writer. John is so candid, easy to talk to, and the convo just flew by. We met through the Ketamine clinic, Illumma, and he had written about his experience, which pushed him out of his comfort zone. We talk about how he defines comfort zone, pushing ourselves to the next level until it becomes our baseline, and how he views this through the lens of depression, which is something he is actively working on. How can we see this all as a debit system-- one in which we build up the good to counter the negative and maximize our investment in ourselves? Going out of our comfort zone is where the reward of this lies! John also emphasizes the importance of lateral movement when you’re stuck, and how we can look for catalysts in our life to find those places where were can find momentum. And he says: "Something is going to happen-- so you might as well be the reason that the good thing happens, and keep making bigger decisions." 3: Go Aff Yourself (29:09) with Jill Faulkner of stickwithit.co:  We talk action vs. the comfort zone, and Jill asks: is it ever good to stay in your comfort zone? We talk about the internal, intangible comfort zones; resistance; and Jill observes this: "Nobody else is in charge of getting us out of our comfort zone. It’s nobody else’s responsibility. And on the other side is where the growth is." We wonder about the opposite of comfort zone, and this week’s Aff is: I Trust My Expansiveness. 4: BYOBBB (47:13) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: She is experiencing a lot of upheaval in her own life, and we get into how uncomfortable that is, and what that’s bringing out In her personally and in her business. What happens when home is now not the comfortable place we want it to be? How we can adapt, in many ways? We also discuss that if you’re alone and working alone, how important it is that we find someone to give us reminders of how far we've come? This expands into some self exercises to see how far you’ve come and give yourself perspective.- and perhaps make a practice of looking at how we have grown and gotten past our comfort zone when we have had our heads down and been working, unable to realize our own growth. And the unknown is where we create!
