Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 9: The Wrong Kind of Woman with Naomi McDougall Jones

Gold with Jeanette Schneider

Today I am joined by Naomi McDougall Jones. Naomi is an award-winning writer, actress, producer, and women in film activist based in New York City. She is currently in post-production on her second feature film, BITE ME. Naomi’s first feature film, which she also wrote, produced, and starred in, was the 12-time award-winning Imagine I’m Beautiful. The film received a theatrical release and is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and GooglePlay. A pilot she wrote, The Dark Pieces, is now in development for television in Canada after having been named on The 2016 WriteHer List as one of the top 16 unproduced pilots by a female screenwriter. 

Naomi is an advocate and thought leader for bringing gender parity to cinema. She gave a virally sensational TEDTalk, What it’s Like to Be a Woman in Hollywood, which has now been viewed over 1 million times and can be seen on TED.com. She is the Founder and Chief Impact Officer of The 51 Fund, a venture capital fund dedicated to financing films by female filmmakers. Naomi is currently writing a book, The Wrong Kind of Woman: Dismantling the Gods of Hollywood, which will be published by Beacon Press in January 2020.

I cannot wait to share the world in which she lives and creates because it is truly eye opening and offers us such insight into the influence of film, and it’s bias, in our lives.

I love Naomi’s passion to change the world of film and how she’s attacking it in so many ways. I love her advice never to shave pieces of yourself off and even when you’re terrified – do it anyway.

You can find Naomi and all of her beautiful projects here.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 8: Debt-Free, Simple and Passionate Living with Jennifer Griffith

Today I am joined by Jennifer Griffith, writer, speaker and the founder of In the Life Of Zen, a lifestyle blog documenting her journey of debt-free, simple and passionate living. A Vice President for a healthcare media company, she marries her knowledge of business with a love for life. She encourages people to take power over their finances and their lives. 

At one point in time Jen and husband, Jesse, were over $100,000 in debt and it was creating great strain on their marriage. They realized the only way out was through and today she shares the intentional path from debt to financial freedom. She provides her “top 5” steps to get started on a debt-free journey, encourages us to find a life of passion, gets real on growth in partnerships – including struggles around job loss, a devastating miscarriage and tells us to focus on the love you have to give.

I love Jennifer’s encouragement to find a life of passion and the tough love steps to start a created and curated life where you are living out loud and not so much to pay bills.

Living intentionally is where its at, and if you are anything like me, you get out of bed and reach for your phone. I’d love to say that I do yoga first thing, but let’s be honest, I open my eyes to news and I’m ready to counter that with my own weekly intention journey. I’m inviting you. Totally free.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 7: Cultivating Courage and Authenticity with Tiffany Hendra

From the trailer park to Beverly Hills and now back to Texas, Tiffany Hendra inspires women from all walks of life to live their most authentic, stylish and courageous lives. She is a wife, TV personality, empowerment & media coach, creator of Sanctuary Of Style and former cast member of Bravo’s Real Housewives Of Dallas. With her spitfire, but nurturing attitude, Tiffany gives women the nudge they need to exit their comfort zone, make friends with their fear and enter their courage zone. Her mission is to help women live in freedom by overcoming past negative programming, give up victimhood, find their voice, cultivate courage and live with UNAPOLOGETIC authenticity. 

Tiffany and I talk about the courage zone, courage v fear, how action is sometimes messy and the authenticity and courage it took to leave Real Housewives of Dallas. She also shares the message she’d share with her younger self. This is a beautiful conversation.

Let’s dig in.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 6: You Are Stronger Than Your Stick

I just returned from a life-changing trip to Tanzania where I traveled amongst lions, zebras, wildebeest. I am still unpacking all of the lessons that a fully immersive trip serves up, but was struck by two very specific moments; one on the Serengeti and again during my time on what felt like the edge of the earth wading into the Indian Ocean off the coast of Zanzibar.

You cannot leave Africa unchanged and I wanted to pop on and share the biggest lessons I am taking with me while they’re still fresh in mind (and heart). I will share stories about the beauty of the people of East Africa, a heart of service and the difference between support and dependency.
