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.

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.
