Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 60: The Beauty In Struggle with Jairek Robbins


Jairek Robbins believes there is beauty in our struggles. At the age of 20, doctors told Jairek he only had 6 days left to live after contracting malaria. Thinking to himself, “This wasn’t the plan,” Jairek immediately put to use the tools he had learned over the years from books, tapes, and seminars, and started working on healing himself. Today, Jairek Robbins is the #1 Bestselling Author of Live It!, a Performance Coach & Lifestyle Entrepreneur, and founder of Performance Coach University.

Jairek Robbins is a man dedicated to helping professionals optimize personal performance and achieve success with purpose.

Jairek was awarded the Congressional Award (Gold Medal) from the United States Congress. He has conducted trainings for Harvard University, The United States Marines, The United States Air Force Special Forces, BMW, REMAX, UBS, Major League Baseball Teams and members of the U.S. Olympic team.

He is a trusted advisor and board member to a variety of different companies. Today, with over a decade of performance coaching experience Jairek continues to unlock secrets for maximizing performance and organizational success.

Today Jairek and I have a soulful conversation about how we can become more prepared to take on difficulties with ease. We discuss fixed vs growth mindset, spirit vs ego, and how both are necessary on our journey, and the power we have in choosing to rewrite the stars for our family tree. 

I loved this conversation with Jairek so much. I appreciate his advice to get comfortable dancing within our darkness. And to cherish the events that have made us who we are by forgiving ourselves for past mistakes. 

You can follow Jairek on Instagram @jairekrobbins and find him on his website www.jairekrobbins.com.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 59: Health At Every Size with Molly Bahr

Molly Bahr believes in body liberation. You are not the food you eat, the beliefs you have and the guilt you feel after that cookie. She focuses on helping people make peace with food and their body while creating a full and meaningful life. 

Molly Bahr is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in private practice in Miami, Florida and also provides virtual sessions to residents of Florida and Hawaii. Molly works with disordered eating, body image, body shame, anxiety, depression, and trauma. She is a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, trained in EMDR, and practices from a Health At Every Size lens. Molly has worked in a variety of treatment settings including inpatient and outpatient programs for eating disorders, substance abuse disorders, and an outpatient transgender clinic.

Today Molly and I bust some myths about diet culture, discuss intuitive eating and how to listen in to your body’s signals. We also dig into social influence and how a comparison culture creates negative internal talk. 

I love Molly’s encouragement to liberate your body, realizing that it is not your identity, and that you have so much more to offer the world. As she said, “Your life purpose is not to lose weight.”

You can find her on Instagram where she promotes body acceptance, body liberation, information to improve mental health, and your relationship with food and body @mollybcounseling

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 58: Go Play! with Barbara Butler

Barbara Butler believes we all need to play more, kids and adults alike! Through play and immersion in nature we are able to quiet the noise in our minds. Children use play to build their own social structures, problem resolution skills, and it offers them a social, emotional and physical outlet.

She is the founder & CEO of Barbara Butler Artist-Builder Inc. She has been designing & building extraordinary custom treehouses and play structures for children for over 30 years, both residential & commercial, within the United States and internationally.

Barbara’s mom wanted her to be a lawyer, but she loved working with her hands. School breaks were spent working for her brothers learning bricklaying and construction. After graduate school, she gave up on the idea of getting a real job and moved to San Francisco to be an artist. She started painting, then building decks, then landed her first play structure job working for Bobby McFerrin (“Don’t Worry/Be Happy”). That was all it took for her passion to be realized.

Today Barbara and I talk about the importance of play and imagination in children’s lives, why we need to join them, and we dig into some of the lessons she learned as a woman in a male dominated industry. 

I loved Barbara’s encouragement to play and “lollygag.” We all need the reminder to get out of our heads.

Dan Mason is a nationally recognized career and life transition coach and host of the Apple #1 debut podcast, Life Amplified. His work has been featured at the Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, and the Nationally syndicated Elvis Duran Morning Show. Dan has helped clients in 13 countries discover their calling, leave their soul-crushing corporate jobs, and create careers that are meaningful to their bank account AND the world at large.

Dan and I dig into trauma, both “Big T” trauma and “Little t” trauma and the steps we take to understand who we are under the stories we’ve told ourselves. I love this conversation because Dan has successfully moved his clients from muted dreams into actionable next steps after he, himself, did the big, dirty work.

Let’s dig in.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I love every conversation I have with Dan because he is so real, so vulnerable and so right. Be willing to have the hard talks with yourself so that you can create the life you are meant to live.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 56: You Are What You Eat with Alex Bucko

Alex Bucko believes in the old saying “you are what you eat.” After being diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 22, she found herself on a new path in life. While this was a scary and heartbreaking time, Alex found a sense of relief finally knowing why she had been sick for so many years, thus giving her a starting point for her healing to begin. But when the conventional treatments of western medicine did not work for Alex, she started searching elsewhere for the answer. Trying out a more holistic approach, Alex discovered that food could be her medicine.

Alex Bucko is a nutritional therapist focusing on mediating the symptoms of chronic illness within her practice. She believes that a shift towards ancestral nutrition and lifestyle could help to lessen the prevalence of modern diseases that have become overly common today such as cancer, diabetes, and autoimmunity.

Alex got her start in nutritional therapy after her own struggle with autoimmunity forced her to leave her first career and embark on her journey for self-healing. After being increasingly sick for over ten years, she had had enough. Alex was able to overcome her multiple autoimmune conditions without a long list of pharmaceuticals, and now sits comfortably in remission after making diet and lifestyle changes.

Today Alex and I dig deep into the food we eat and its relationship to our health. We talk about getting back to the way we evolved to eat through seasonal and ancestral eating, the domestication of crops and the evolution of the food industry as a whole, and how our gut health is vitally connected to our overall health and wellbeing.

Let’s dig in.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 55: Raising Body Confident Kids with Dana Suchow

Dana Suchow is passionate about the importance of raising body confident children. Bullied for her skin issues and cystic acne, she struggled with body shame and unworthiness at a young age. As a result, Dana grew up hating her body and later developed an eating disorder as she was trying to portray an image of “perfection” as a fashion blogger living in New York City. When Dana started opening up about her struggles, she found a deeper connection with her followers who were also dealing with the same issues.

Since overcoming Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder and exercise compulsion, Dana Suchow has become an expert in the field of body image and eating disorder prevention. Offering a nonclinical and holistic approach, Dana gives parents, teachers and caregivers the tools to prevent eating disorders and raise body confident kids! Dana is an international speaker, and for years she has worked with audiences of 10 to auditoriums of over 1,000. Dana is a frequent Summit Panelist and Keynote Speaker, and has given 15 minute talks to 3 hour workshops. Dana also works with children of all school levels, from Elementary School to College, appearing in person or by video.

In 2012 Dana founded DoTheHotpants.com as a fashion blog, but once she realized fashion’s unattainable beauty standards were fueling her eating disorder, Dana made the powerful decision to leave the industry and focus on eating disorder prevention and activism. In 2014 Dana founded #MyBodyStory, an ongoing storytelling series created to uplift girl’s and women’s voices that so often go unheard. In 2016 Dana co-founded The Ripple, a nonprofit nationwide activist collective focused on helping women make waves in their communities. In 2018, Dana was awarded the Girl Up #GirlHero Award by This Is Us star and activist Chrissy Metz.

Dana lives in New York City and holds a Masters Degree in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. You can find her on Good Morning America, The Oprah Winfrey Network, Vogue, Huffington Post, Yahoo, ELLE, Seventeen Magazine and more!

Today Dana and I dig deep into the world of body image. We talk about how to raise body confident children in today’s society, and the importance of learning about diet culture, the companies that try to profit off of our insecurities, and the need to heal the relationship with our own bodies.

I loved this conversation with Dana so much. Her passion for changing the conversation around body image is truly inspiring. We have so much influence over those around us in what we say and do, especially our children. Let’s be conscious of speaking and modeling body positivity and confidence everyday.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 54: Dance Like No One Is Watching with Jaycee Gossett

Jaycee Gossett believes that if you’re not moving, you’re dying. In addition to helping her manage stress, Jaycee recognized her love for dance by the way it always made her feel more like herself. It is the thing that lights her up, energizes her, and makes her feel connected to the universal energy that surrounds us. She is on a mission to get the world to dance and move as a way to express energy and cleanse the body. Whatever creative movement makes your body happy, Jaycee wants you to do more of that.

Today Jaycee and I discuss the therapeutic benefits of dance and movement, the physical and emotional release that it brings, and how it gives us a deeper connection to our mind, body, and soul.

I loved talking with Jaycee about the power of dance and movement, and it’s connection to the health of our mind, body, and soul. Remember, we are all dancers at heart, we only need to move our bodies in a creative way that feels right and good for us. Get out there and dance!

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 51:The Power of Self Awareness with Gabrielle Ortega

Gold with Jeanette Schneider

Gabrielle Ortega believes self care is more than the luxurious treatments of face masks and spa days. It includes your spiritual care, mental health, and setting boundaries. 

Gabrielle is the Owner and Founder of OM Therapy Coaching, a conscious life coaching business that aims to help people decode their minds, heal from past wounds, discover their power, and break through to live their ideal lives.

Formerly a trauma-oriented psychotherapist, Gabrielle integrates the Western sciences of Psychology and Neurobiology with ancient Eastern philosophies and practices, to create customized programs that focus on whole-person healing and wellness.

Gabrielle is currently working on her doctorate in clinical psychology at Pacifica University, where she is studying the neurological effects of meditation on trauma survivors. She also sees 1:1 clients virtually from her home in Los Angeles, California. She has been featured on podcasts like “She Did It!” with Sydney Nanberg, and is a current featured speaker for the “Authentically You Leadership” show with Tia Christiansen. Gabrielle will also be launching her first 12-week group coaching program in January 2020, Rebirth, where she will be guiding small groups of women through their own self-awakening journeys!

Gabrielle is considered one of the leaders of the new mental health paradigm, and looks forward to changing the way the world approaches emotional and mental wellness.

Today, Gabrielle and I dig deep into how we can become the biggest, baddest version of ourselves, the self awareness it takes to get there, and the importance of being radically honest. We have to own how we are showing up in our life and take ownership of the ways in which we may contribute to both our pleasure and our pain.

Let’s dig in. 

Thank you so much for joining me today! I love Gabrielle’s reminder to have compassion and to forgive ourselves on our journey. We did the best we could with the knowledge and awareness that we had at the time of past events. Forgiveness and self awareness are where it is at.
