  • Ep. 251: My money, sex, and freedom confessions

    Jun 18 2019

    Think of all those things you want for your life. The ones you're excited about and also the ones you're not proud of. What might happen for you if you were to say them out loud? This is exactly what I'm doing with today's episode as I take you behind the scenes of the very personal reasons that I've undertaken this Money, Sex, Freedom series on the podcast.

  • Ep. 250: You are not lazy. (And other things I need you to know.)

    Jun 11 2019

    If you're anything like me, not doing enough is not your problem. AND YET as overambitious, hand-raisers, it is so easy for us to blame ourselves and a lack of doing (or, by extension being!) enough on why we aren't where we want to be in our work and our lives. In this week's episode, I'm refuting some terrible advice I recently heard and sharing other things that I need you to know as you work your way down this path of raising your hand and saying yes to those things you want for your life!

    Jun 04 2019

    Tell me this: would you avoid anything in the world to feel needy? Do you want to go deeper into your desires but feel selfish in doing so?

  • Ep. 248: Oh, but what about that fear of rejection?

    May 28 2019

    Oh, that fear of rejection and failure is a BIG ONE. And I see it hold us back all the time. This week, I'm diving into what you can do about that fear of rejection, how and why it's affecting your life, and what you can focus on instead. I'm also sharing how it can get in the way of you getting the money, sex, and freedom you want and deserve (HEYO!) and how by not asking for what you want and need, you might ultimately be rejecting yourself! Finally, I share a journalling exercise that can hel...more

  • Ep. 247: Tanya Geisler and the Imposter Complex

    May 21 2019

    "I'm not good enough. I'm not ready. I don't belong here." These are just a few of the things the Imposter Complex would have us believe (yes! there's a name for that!) and this week I'm thrilled to have life coach and Imposter Complex expert Tanya Geisler back on the podcast to talk all about the Imposter Complex. In this episode, you'll hear what it is, how it shows up, what it means if you experience these things (it's good, I promise!) and how you can move beyond it to get all those things y...more

  • Ep. 246: Money, Sex, Freedom...and God?

    May 14 2019

    Ahhhh! Money Sex Freedom is here! This week, I'm sharing the back story about why I'm launching this series, why I almost didn't do it (cause that fear voice is loud y'all) and why I think money and sex can lead us straight to God. (Am I allowed to talk about all of this in the same conversation? Yes. Yes I am.) There's also an invitation in here for you to let me know your money, sex, and freedom questions (you know...the ones that are hard to talk about or say out loud!) so that I can explore ...more

    May 07 2019

    I've learned a ton in my nearly 5 years of podcasting, and this week, I'm sharing five of the things I wish I'd known when I started this show back in 2014.

  • Ep. 242: The Systems + Structures I'm Using to Change My Ways

    Apr 16 2019

    In early April, I started a 100-day challenge called #100daystochangemyways. This week, I'm taking you behind the scenes of what that really means, why I'm doing it, and what tools, structures, and systems I'm experimenting with to help me implement that change. You'll learn about what scenario helps me feel totally fine about eating ramen for dinner, why I'm trying to get my book proposal written quickly (but without having to hustle) and how I'm planning my days *and* the next 6 months of my w...more

  • Ep. 241: State of the Union: Before, After, and the Messy Middle

    Apr 09 2019

    In our fast-moving, hyper-connected world, it's always good to pause for a check-in, so that's what I'm doing today! I've got Erin Cassidy (a long-time RYHSY guest!) back today and we're doing a little State of the Union to talk about what's going on over here at RYHSYHQ, how the new brand is shaking out, what it was like to work on the new site and how we're faring. So many of the success stories we hear involve the narrative of "I did things. They were hard. BUT LOOK AT MEEEEE NOW!!" and that'...more

  • Ep. 240: The Opposite of Burnout

    Apr 02 2019

    When was the last time you woke up feeling like you were excited to dive into your day? If you're not sure, you might be suffering from burnout. In this week's episode, I'm sharing the 12 phases of burnout (as developed by psychologists!) and talking about how why I think—as hand raisers and yes sayers—we're especially prone to burning ourselves out. I'm also sharing one of my favorite super-easy-to-start-using tools for beginning to move yourself beyond burnout. In addition, you'll hear from on...more

  • Ep. 239: The Convenience of Your Fear

    Mar 26 2019

    Wait. Fear is convenient? You might be thinking, "no way!" but on this week's episode, I'm going into how our habitual fear responses are getting in our way and what we can do instead. SO MUCH of raising your hand and saying yes starts with looking at the individual moments of your everyday life. (Even though it's way more fun to daydream about those Big Things the future holds.) This week, I'll show you how those two are woven together and help get you on your path to ease, freedom, and flow! Y...more

  • Ep. 238: The Integration Problem (aka What to do When it's Time to Follow Through)

    Mar 19 2019

    It's easy to focus on the first step necessary when taking on something new (and challenging!), but the follow-through is actually a much harder thing to integrate. This week I'm talking all about integration and how I think it's time we turn our gaze from the beginning of an endeavor to what happens when we get into something—how do we stay connected and on track, especially when that pesky fear and doubt creep in? I'll go all in this week on my own very recent integration problem and offer 4 t...more

  • Ep. 237: Alexandra Brown on Creating Adventure in Big and Small Ways

    Mar 12 2019

    This episode is for anyone who has a big dream or wants to take a risk but isn't sure how or if they should or what that would look like for their lives. I was so excited to get to interview Alexandra Brown about her book A Year Off (that she co-wrote with her now-husband) about her adventure of spending a year traveling around the world with said-husband, then-boyfriend, and everything she learned in the process. We covered *so much* in this interview, including: -feeling selfish-what to do whe...more

    Mar 05 2019

    How good are you at—really, truly— taking care of yourself? Are you sitting in a not-so-great situation hoping it resolves itself? Is there a change you want to make in your life but are paralyzed by fear, doubt, and the potential disruption said change will potentially cause? I have got you covered.

  • Ep. 235: What they aren't telling us about willpower, time management, and the systems that work against us

    Feb 26 2019

    Feel like your time management could use a boost? Struggle with willpower? Today, I am here to tell you that there's nothing wrong with you. (YES. It's so true.) I'm also here to tell you that rather than trying to systems your way to doing more in less time, you can find even more freedom by digging deeper. We're talking Instagram and parenting and Doritos and booze. And also: sanity. We're talking sanity. There is a better way. Let's all explore it together. Show Notes: Connect with Tiffany on...more

  • Ep. 234: Ann Shen on Rest, Routines, and Resetting

    Feb 19 2019

    I am so excited to have author and illustrator Ann Shen back on the podcast for the third time. On the surface, our conversation is about routines—how to find them, how to keep them, and how to stay committed to them. But once we dug deeper, I realized that this conversation was actually about how to find practices that help you release anxiety and then how to allow those practices to be a priority for you in your life. Without apologizing for what you need and who you are. Oh, right. That apolo...more

  • Ep. 233: A Public Breakup: What I'm Letting Go Of + Why

    Feb 12 2019

    The day is here, the day is here! I'm finally ready to unveil something that's been in the works since October: the new vision for my work. This week, I'm laying out a very public breakup (and sharing why I'm making the changes that I am)...but here's the kicker: I'm only going deeper into the person that I really want to be. And what if we all were able to do that in our lives? Yeeeeeees. Dive in and find out why I put off recording this episode for so long - the doing-the-work nerves are no jo...more

    Feb 05 2019

    Yolanda Christopher is on a mission to rid the world of horrible bosses and create better leaders, and I was so excited to get to interview her for the show. We talked about all the things you'd expect: leadership, management, and structure, BUT Yolanda blew my mind right away with her approach to trust and the conversation skyrocketed from there.

  • Ep. 230: Embracing the Both/And

    Jan 22 2019

    What do you do when you're getting conflicting advice? How do you proceed when the world tells you the only way to succeed is through hard work and struggle? Is it possible for things to be both fun *and* effective? I say yes, and in this week's episode, I'm walking you through the path of embracing the tightrope walk of the both/and rather than the either/or. This one might just change everything.

    Jan 01 2019

  • Ep. 224: How to Set Big Goals *and* Chill Out all at the Same Time

    Dec 11 2018

    This episode was inspired by a listener's request to cover setting more realistic goals as a topic. Here's the thing: while I don't think we need to necessarily worry about how "realistic" our goals are, I also think that we can get better at pulling ourselves off the brink of burnout in order to live the lives that we want to live. But is it possible to do both? I think that it is - AND - that it's not only possible, but necessary. In this episode, I break down how and give real-life examples (...more

    In this month's installment of my Raise Your Hand Say Yes Life series, I go behind the scenes of some business changes I'm making and talk about how I'm dealing with the uncertainty that comes along with doing something that goes against the grain of everything that's worked in the past AND all the things that other's would advise for me.  I also share how this uncertainty has also trickled into my personal life with both a move to Colorado for us and my giving up drinking.  Enjoy, enjoy!  Show ...more

  • Ep. 149: An Invitation to Flow (and Permission to Drop Those Old Stories!)

    Jul 12 2017

    Ooh let's talk about stories - namely: the stories that we decide are true that hold us back. Examples include: Tiffany talks too much or Tiffany isn't a good speaker. (Ahem, right.) The problem with these stories that are often hold-overs from our youth is that we let them hold us back. We decide to use them as evidence against going after the things we want for our lives. They're conveniently placed right between us and our dreams.  And I say no more! This week, we dig into how those stories h...more

    Aug 30 2016

    I don't have time. The circumstances aren't right. I can't do it. These are all stories we tell ourselves.

    May 19 2015

    Oh, the hustle. We hear it all the time - you have to work hard to win big, but make sure you have work-life balance, and don't forget about self care, and la;ksdjf;oicuxfewr. And which messages are we supposed to take to heart? The ones that tell us to chill the eff out or the ones that tell us we have to go all in and work our tails off to become successful in this world? Both. And neither.  This week on the podcast, I sat down with small business strategist and coach for creative entrepren...more

    May 13 2015

    Fear. Doubt. Inner critics. They are something WE ALL deal with. Every single one of us. And yet, they make us feel so alone and isolated. Well, I say not anymore! In this week's episode of the podcast, I'm flying solo and talking about how to step beyond fear into your Most Important Work - that work that keeps you up at night, that work you can't stop thinking about, that work you know you were meant to do.

  • Ep. 35: Jen Louden on Vulnerability

    Apr 29 2015

    Ah, how I love Jen Louden. I first met Jen a few years ago at WDS after my Teahouse studio-mate Stef had told me, "Jen Louden is there. You have to meet her and convince her to come teach at Teahouse." So, me being me, I saw her talking to a mutual friend, walked up and introduced myself, "Hi. I'm Tiffany. I hear you're awesome. I have a workshop space in Berkeley and we'd love for you to come teach there." Mysterious, I am not. And, lo and behold, that #raiseyourhandsayyes moment led to Jen c...more

    Apr 22 2015

    Ahh! I was so excited to interview Janelle Hanchett for this week's podcast episode. So excited.  When I found out I was pregnant with twins, I immediately dove into Google (don't do that!) and found myself going down the Rabbit Hole of Crazy that is websites about pregnancy and expecting and twins and all of that. There is so much information that made me feel nervous and anxious and terrible.  And then, one day, I stumbled upon Janelle's blog, Renegade Mothering, and felt like I had found my...more

    Mar 17 2015

Meg also shares ways that you can get started in telling yo...more

  • Ep. 26: Jennifer Lee on Creativity as an Asset

    Feb 25 2015

    Newsflash: your creativity is an asset, not a liability.  I have based my entire business around this principle, and I wanted to explore it further on the podcast. I see too many women trying to quiet their creative voices instead of embracing them. It's time to change.  In this episode, I talk about why I think creativity needs to be embraced and then sit down to talk with Jennifer Lee, one of my favorite peeps ever, about it. As the creator of the Right Brain Business Plan, Jenn has see fir...more

    Feb 04 2015

    And, welcome to the podcast episode where I quote myself. This week, I did something a little bit different and did a solo show. What started out as a short guide to finding your own way to Raise your hand and say yes quickly became my stance on life (enter: the Crazyfaith) and my musings on the movement I'm trying to create with my work and this show.  I'm feeling a wee bit vulnerable posting and sharing this now, but, in the spirit of leaning in to my own discomfort, here goes.  I'd love to...more

We also talk about letting go of what other people are thinking, letting go of needing a "label" for your...more
