Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 24: Thrive: Body, Soul and Career with Amina AlTai

Amina AlTai is a holistic business and mindset coach and corporate trainer. She is the first social entrepreneur to successfully create a methodology that supports the health of a business and its people at the same time. Over a decade in marketing and grappling with a fast-paced career and two autoimmune diseases lead Amina to burnout. In hopes of healing her own life, she sought training in nutrition, fitness and mindfulness and her goal became to teach others how to balance a thriving career, body and mind.

In this episode we talk about the tax that stress takes on our bodies, why you have to marry your wellness with your career and the importance of a growth mindset. We dig into intuitive eating, raising conscious children and the toolboxes that we have to build in order to cope, grow and build our big, bad lives. 

Progressive companies such as Deloitte, Y&R;, Outdoor Voices, NYU and HUGE have partnered with Amina. She’s an Entrepreneur Magazine expert-in-residence and writes for Thrive Global, MindbodyGreen, The Observer, Yahoo, Bustle, Byrdie and more.

Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 23: Boy To Man with Josh Dittmer

Josh Dittmer is the host of The Live More, Regret Less podcast and I’ve been so fortunate to find him in my podcasting journey. We had an incredible conversation on his podcast about the duality of femininity v masculinity and I finally found a guy who could talk the importance of rites of passage and how we view boys. 

Josh digs into the natural initiation he went through that moved him from boy to man, the emotional wounds he dealt with head on, and the desire to learn from elders. We talk physicality meets emotion and a desire to grow into yourself. He harnesses his incredible energy and the own deep work he’s done and coaches men on the transition from boyhood to manhood, influence, success, direction, self reliance and responsibility for your own reality. He is my new favorite Aussie.

I love Josh’s very clear direction, “Boys need roles models to show us how to be men. We learn through experience and we learn through guidance.” I appreciate his emotional honesty and the space he takes up in the world. 

Josh, you have a voice and a platform that is very needed. I can’t wait to see what you do with it.

You can find Josh on IG @thejoshdittmer or his website www.joshdittmer.com

Josh and I talk about doing deep work to uncover your messaging which is the cardinal point of my new book LORE: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future. Get into the work with me. LORE is available now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble . com.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 18: Girl, Get Your $hit Together with Lisa Chastain

Lisa Chastain had to rewrite her “money story” and change her limiting beliefs surrounding money. It changed her life. She recounts the day she tearfully realized money coaching for millennial women was her calling. Lisa shares with us the bullet points of “adulting” when it comes to money, debt, savings and throws the dirty word “budget” out the window. She advises, instead, to “Design Your Life.”

Lisa has been coaching, mentoring and advising millennials for nearly 20 years. Her company, Millennial Consulting LLC inspires women to be the boss of their finances and lives by teaching and mentoring them on control of money, living purposefully and loving their lives. Her #1 Bestselling book Girl, Get Your $hit Together, teaches millennial women how to own their history with more so they can boss up and own their futures.  

Lisa was recently featured on CNBC, O – Oprah Magazine, Fortune and Entrepreneur magazines and was one of Las Vegas Women Magazine’s People To Watch in 2018.

Lisa’s advice is brilliant in its simplicity. It’s a whole lot of accountability and the brave act of removing your blinders, love. Get clear on what you have, what you want, and you can move financial mountains. I’ll never forget her charge, “I want everyone to wake up and love your life, but you have to know what that life costs you.”

You can find Lisa on Twitter @moneycoachC or IG @lisachastain4. Pick up her book Girl, Get Your $hit Together on Amazon.  

Lisa and I talk about doing deep work to uncover your messaging which is the cardinal point of my new book LORE: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future. Get into the work with me. LORE is available on Amazon or barnesandnoble.com

Be My Valentine: LORE Turns 1

IMG_5313.JPG

LORE was launched Valentine’s Day 2015, and I am astounded at how far we’ve come in one short year. Just like my own daughter, who changes every few months, LORE has grown into something I couldn’t imagine when I was scribbling down blog ideas. I realized this has become more than what I’d originally intended when I was recently introduced to another woman. Our mutual friend suddenly looked confused as if she was searching the air for something she couldn’t find, “She has a blog.. It’s not a blog. No, what is it… It feels like more than a blog. It’s a something…”

I smiled from the inside out, It’s definitely a something.

We have become less blog and more a platform for women. I definitely don’t feel like a blogger. I sat back the other day and realized I’ve become a curator. I’m curating pure, unashamed, unfiltered beauty. I am so humbled and grateful that women entrust me with their words and their Love Letters and articles pop into my inbox as I reach out for content. Women tell me they look forward to our weekly offering of raw, unfiltered, woman to woman love.

I haven’t met a mean girl yet.

So, in the vein of Valentine’s Day, and a nod to our signature feature, LOVE LETTERS, I thought I’d write a love letter to those of you who have built LORE.

Dear readers, thank you for your continued emojis, exclamation marks, likes and comments. Your responses and support help me build out content that is meaningful and that I know will resonate each week. Please continue to like us, Tweet us, double tap us on Instagram and share our articles so that we can understand what it is you like to read and how best to keep you engaged. Tell us, too, if you have ideas or suggestions. Without you there is no LORE and I appreciate you from the bottom of my very humbled heart.

Thank you.

Dear contributors, thank you for trusting me with your words. Thank you for opening up, letting people in and sharing the unexpected journey you experience when you have to do a little soul searching, and only because you want your letters to be meaningful. You do the work to keep others from having to, and that in and of itself, is genuine and brilliant. It is such a treat to hear back from you as you receive personal messages from readers who have been touched by your vulnerability. I love your shocked faces, surprised emails and texts. You changed someone’s day. It feels good, doesn’t it?

There is always room for you here.

Because of the collective YOU we will be bringing on more contributing writers, more content, more letters and you will see the look of LORE change to become more easily accessible and with curated content. I’m also toying with the idea of sending out a weekly Love Note in which you will find a link to the article for the week as well as a word or phrase of intent to start your Monday in a lovely frame of mind. Give me your feedback. What would you want to see in a Love Note?

To be honest, I wanted to go fetal when I had to learn basic HTML code to build this thing over a year ago, and yet here I am having meetings with web developers and figuring out 7000 efficiency apps. I’m all in, but I am learning things that are stretching my brain, so you will see small fits and starts as LORE becomes a toddler. At this very moment I’m sitting in a ski lodge with my laptop and what should equate to TECH FOR DUMMIES while my kiddo attends ski school.

Side note: She hates it, so she can’t see me on the mountain or there would be much crying and an avalanche. So, I just link profiles, figure things out, cry a little on the inside and then sneak glimpses of her out the window. Her body language says temper tantrum later.

Pray for me.

As for you?

Big, mushy, loud and glittery thank you. May your Valentine’s Day be filled with love and if you don’t have someone to smooch, please consider me your honorary Valentine.

You ladies are definitely mine.

Xo,

Jeanette
