Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 57: Big T Trauma with Dan Mason

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.
