Episode 092: Minding Your Health When Your Mind Is On Work

This week marks the second anniversary of The Live FAB Life Podcast!

In this episode, I discuss having an epiphany, with the help of some friends, on my unique position to help women in tech bring health and wellness to the forefront of their careers and lives.

You'll hear me share my work experience of working in startups to large corporate environments, the different stressors I experienced and how being micro-managed directly impacted my health and how I learned to reframe and deal with the situation for the better.

Episode 091: Thriving Through Cancer with Alyssa Carrie and Katie Leadbetter

In this episode, I’m joined by frequent guest (she’s been a guest here on the show more than anyone else) and friend of the program Katie Leadbetter and Alyssa Carrie.

Katie and Alyssa are both certified holistic Nutrition Consultants, 21-Day Sugar Detox Coaches, and they’re both very young cancer survivors.

Katie was on the show last October, specifically in Episodes 056, 057 and 058, sharing her experience of surviving stage 2B Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Breast Cancer which she has been in remission for almost five years.

Alyssa was diagnosed with Lymphoma a year ago at the age of 26 and thankfully is also in remission. 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Alyssa share her cancer story for the very first time. She shares how vital the Ketogenic diet was in her healing, as well as how she partnered with her oncologist to trace her steps to identify the root cause of her cancer.

  • You’ll also hear them both share how important self-care and personal growth was during their respective treatments 

  • What went well during their treatments and what they found lacking

  • And how they’re filling that gap for cancer patients by collaborating on a new program they’ve created that launches in just a few weeks called, “The Cancer Survivor’s Course.”

It takes a special kind of vulnerability to share such personal experiences and I’m grateful that these women are brave enough to do so.

Episode 090: Easy Ways to Improve Your Financial Wellness with Bre Bauer

What role does finances play in making healthcare decisions? How much of a factor is it in your overall stress load? What’s your mindset around money?

Finances are at the center of our health and wellness yet one that we may be difficult to address and easily avoided.

Joining me to have a frank discussion on financial wellness is Bre Bauer. Bre is a self-proclaimed “Budget Nerd”, who spent years in a cycle of accumulating consumer debt and then working her tail off to pay it off.  

It wasn’t until she changed her awareness and behaviors around her money mindset and spending habits that she was truly able to become and remain debt-free.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Mistakes and misconceptions around money and finances

  • What budgeting means and what it doesn’t mean

  • The importance of building awareness around your spending habits

  • How to budget with a variable income

  • How to build a healthy money mindset

  • And a whole lot more!
