I have never written a review before but how can I not if it means more people can potentially hear this. Every time I listen I find thoughts that stick with me and change my outlook on my day and often on my life. Most recently the idea to choose love instead of fear has taken over my brain and my relationships in the best way possible. I often find myself pausing to think or to write down words that find a way to click in my brain the way they hadn’t before. So thank you! Thank you for putting yourselves out there and being willing to work hard to get these positive thoughts into the universe to make it a better place for me and those in my life!

Everyone needs to listen to this podcast.

I started listening to Alison and Eric from the very beginning on my commute to work. I find myself in my car nodding and getting excited because their practical advice and positivity keeps me going. Since i started listening I have gone through a house fire, moved to a completely new place, had a baby and lost my mom to cancer. I come back to this podcast for my grief, my self-identity, self-improvement and a reason to get back up and keep living life even on the days I really don’t want to. It’s taken me too long to leave a review, but if you are reading this I hope that you don’t wait any longer to listen to every single one of these episodes and take away all they have to offer.

Rank #1: Ep. 59: Life after the tough stuff (trauma and loss) with Ashley Lemieux of The Shine Project

Podcast cover
Read more
The reality of life is that either you, or someone you know is currently living though a trauma or loss. Whether it’s a phone call that someone you love has cancer, the death of a loved one, a divorce, a betrayal, the loss of a job, a physical injury…the LIST GOES ON…what do you do? What does life look like the week after, six months after, a year after? How do you help someone who is experiencing this, or how do you help yourself?
Ashley Lemieux of The Shine Project opens up and shares her incredible insight and strength after experiencing what she refers to as her ultimate loss. We focus on what the details of her loss and trauma—and specifically her grief and healing process—looked like directly after, eight months after and now a year and half after losing her children in an unexpected and heart-breaking way. Ashley shares an unbelievable wealth of resources, tools, and lessons that’s she has learned through her experience. And shares them in such a profound and beautiful way so that anyone can relate.
This is an incredibly important episode, filled with stories, specific ideas and words that I know will help heal and guide anyone who is suffering right now--or anyone who wants to help others. It is an honor to be able to share Ashley and her beautiful story—and I know you’ll feel empowered, inspired and comforted after listening.

On December 20, 2017 I was hit by a car while jogging. It’s been two months and I’m feeling well enough to share the details of what happened, and what that experience was like for me.

This is a very special episode in which we are opening all the cans of all the worms on WHO IS SUPPOSED TO WATCH THESE KIDS?!

I bring on my employee and friend Nichelle Jensen, and we share our different experiences and journeys with finding and getting good help with our kids!

What does it EVEN MEAN to be yourself? It seems like something that should be effortless and easy right?

But before you have a Zoolander-esque breakdown, (“WHO AM I?!”) in this episode we are going into what it even means to “be yourself”, why it’s easy to feel lost, and then giving you 4 awesome ideas for how to be MORE of yourself, no matter where you are showing up!

Hopefully it will help you see a not-so-fun thing happening in your life in a new way so you can start feeling a little bit more awesome! Eric's closing song: "Little Boys" by New Shack
