Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 37: Power Your Purpose with Megan Accardo

Megan Accardo was running events for the biggest talent agency in the world, Creative Artists Agency. She had her dream job, working directly with A-list celebrities, throwing swanky Oscars parties, traveling around the world, and “in the room” with the most well-known business leaders. At the top of her game, she was also dealing with burnout and struggling with infertility. Holding it together through adrenaline and caffeine, she finally realized she wasn’t living out her true potential. 

Megan and I discuss the hard decision to leave a comfortable job to find your passion, the death of identity, and the birth of impact. 

Megan Accardo created the platform and podcast “Power Your Purpose,” to empower women to step into their true purpose and potential in life. She hosts events and experiences around the globe to bring women together in a meaningful way for greater impact.

Megan digs into the transition between lives, the messy start that is so important, and the difference between those on the sidelines and those in the arena. She gives us some practical tips for productivity and throws the term “multi-tasking” under the bus. She encourages us to focus on those things that truly matter in order to be more effective. 

I love Megan’s advice to focusing on our future self as we think through our goals and plan out our next steps.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 36: A Pretty + Pink Legacy with Dr. Ruthie Arumala

Everyone in Ruthie Arumala’s life knew she was going to be a doctor. Except Ruthie. She had a ton of big ideas about fashion, interior design and being a physician to the stars, until her brother’s untimely death and a trip to Botswana where she got first hand experience with women’s global health. After understanding how cervical cancer changed a woman’s life, body and personal identity, she knew she found her calling. Ruthie details her grief after her brother’s death and how empathy has changed her as a person and a physician. 

We talk about a women’s relationship with her doctor, what women still don’t know about their bodies and her awareness that we manage sex through fear in most cultures. She also discusses sexual assault from the perspective of a physician and a woman’s rights advocate.

Dr. Ruthie O. Arumala, is a Georgetown University trained Ob/Gyn with a passion to discuss health in way that is accessible to every woman. The sole OBGYN at Texas Hugley Medical Associates in Mansfield, Texas, she takes care of a range of OBGYN concerns but specializes in care for PCOS, fibroids and infertility. Dr. Ruthie is also the host of the Pretty + Pink Podcast in order to empower women to make better decisions when it comes to their personal health and wellbeing.

Dr. Arumala also digs into the importance of modeling behavior and how her mother became her mentor.  There is no “do as I say, not as I do.” She talks about choosing your mentors, curating your own social media experiences, and why it is important to “shoot your shot,” when asking someone to mentor you. 

I love Dr. Arumala’s encouragement to “move, girl” and that – nothing is that serious.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 35: Leaving Good with Ashley Callen

Ashley Callen believes you have to leave good to get to great, but it wasn’t an easy road. In 2014 she tested positive for the BRCA 1 gene mutation, most commonly known as the breast cancer gene. Directly after choosing to have a preventative double mastectomy, something she calls both the hardest and easiest decision she’s ever made, her husband Dave was severely injured in a helicopter crash which left him with a broken back and a collapsed lung. While the parents of toddlers healed – Ashley preparing for reconstructive surgery and Dave in physical therapy – they also realized they were just surviving, in all ways, and life is too short to settle for “good.”

Ashley and I talk about the emotional fallout of removing her breasts and what she saw as the sign of her femininity, the power of the family she has found within Police Wives of America, and the tough work Dave and Ashley had to face in order to strengthen their marriage after difficulty. 

We get deep in relationships and talk about communication, compassion and hard conversations. Ashley also shares the rough spaces she and Dave navigated that then put them in the spotlight as national speakers for Bless the Badge Law Enforcement conferences and became the foundation of the book they are co-writing that drops later this year.

Let’s dig in.

Thank you for joining us today. I love how deep Ashley went with me in talking about the importance of communication and how conflict is many times the door you need to enter to take your relationship from good to great.

Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 30: Crisis of Faith: Where Resonance Meets Spirituality with Rabbi Jacob Rupp

Rabbi Jacob Rupp is the most woke Orthodox Rabbi I’ve ever met and this conversation is next level amazing. We talk about the fundamental need to ask yourself what it is you want in life, to understand what excites you, and why you should follow your own heart, not the guidelines man provides. He also reminds us that many times religious concept has been lost behind the human and to go back to the fundamentals, not the one who has framed it for you.

We walk through the unwinding of belief systems, turning them from parent-formed to a personal relationship with your Higher Power, be that God, Universe, Allah, etc. Rabbi Rupp reminds us that God desires a broken heart and is bigger than petty human emotions. Then he quotes Tupac.

Rabbi Jacob Rupp grew up in a spiritually ambiguous home with a loving, but highly dysfunctional dynamic, and a desire to help others. He realized he wanted to become a spiritual teacher before he truly understood Judaism.

Rabbi Jacob Rupp is a rabbi, coach, syndicated columnist, podcast host of Lift Your Legacy, speaker, and business strategist. He helps clients achieve clarity on goals and strategies, become honest and forgiving with themselves and others, and live more spiritually connected lives. He does one-on-one performance and marriage counseling, group coaching, and is a keynote speaker. Rupp draws from the gamut of cutting edge business, relationship, and leadership strategy and roots them in ancient Jewish tradition.

Rabbi Rupp has been happily married for over a decade, has four children, lost over 100 lbs., and built his own business, Lift Your Legacy. He helps those who are driven and spiritually seeking to obtain access to the tools they need to live purpose-driven lives. He also started and grew a social media marketing platform, focusing on helping workers who wish to identify and create alternative income streams and communicate their messages out to a wider audience through the medium of podcasting.

Rabbi Rupp holds two BA’s, one from the University of California, San Diego and the other from Ohr LaGolah Hertz Institute for International Teacher Training, and was ordained by the former head rabbinic judge in Jerusalem. He is an avid reader and is continually engaged in the study of Torah, leadership, psychology and related fields.

I LOVE this conversation and reminder that sometimes the way we understand the world around us, faith and path, is through a very narrow lens. Get clear on what you want in life and be open to what comes next.

Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 29: The Accidental Adventurer with Norma Bastidas

Norma Bastidas is a single-mother, a survivor of sexual violence and human trafficking. An ultra athlete, she broke the Guinness World Record for Longest Triathlon after swimming, biking, and running 3,762 miles from Cancun, Mexico to Washington, D.C., a known human trafficking route. She views athletic feats as metaphors for the incredible trials faced every day by the survivors of sexual violence. Norma’s mission is to educate and empower, demonstrating to the world that one’s past does not dictate one’s future, and prove that everyday people are capable of making extraordinary strides in the fight against the problems facing the world today. 

Norma talks about her son, who lost his vision very quickly due to a degenerative disease, facing her past, and advocating for self and others through running. We also dig into mental health and why it is so important that we normalize the conversation around mental illness diagnosis, end the stigma and unfortunate labels.

The woman is strength, grit and determination. I love her reminder that no matter how tough things get.. it will be ok and that you are not your circumstances. Your identity is not what happened to you.

You can join Norma and I live at EmpowerCon at the LA Convention Center on August 31st. Information is on IG @empowercon2019 and don’t forget to follow Norma on IG @ultrarunwild.

Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 28: Own Your Stuff: Healing Victim/Blame Mentality with Lauren Zoeller

Lauren Zoeller and I both whole-heartedly believe in the alchemy of active choice orientation, but to get there we have to recognize our own victim/blame mentality. Lauren shares how she got out of her own way, but only once she realized that she was ostracizing those she loved by her own “this is happening to me” internal dialogue. She thought everyone was against her and soon realized she was the common denominator. 

Lauren’s own story of overcoming diagnosed depression and anxiety through natural solutions after life crisis has led her to advocate for a non pharmaceutical approach to life. She is now the President and CEO of Lauren Zoeller Coaching, as well as the founder and host of The Balanced Boss Podcast. A show that interviews high achievers who are following their dreams and staying healthy in the process. Lauren has been featured in international publications such as Prevention, Shape, Business Insider, Total Beauty, Thrive Global, Goalcast, Money Inc., Healthline, Greatist and more.

Lauren Zoeller is a CTA certified Life Management Coach, Wellness Expert, Motivational Speaker and podcast host . She has achieved overwhelming success in helping burned out, high achievers shift their viewpoint and find an alternative approach to crisis management. Lauren is the creator of the Four Step Transformational Process™, a cutting edge coaching system that elicits lasting change to overcome burnout and avoid a misdiagnosed clinical disorder. 

Lauren digs into the awareness required to dig into your relationship with victim/blame, vulnerability and whether or not you find yourself consistently complaining. Leveling up requires deep self awareness and the ownership of your own “stuff.”

Lauren lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her sweet Persian cat, Ellie and teaches yoga at multiple studios in the Nashville area. When she is not teaching or coaching, you can find her traveling, speaking and leading workshops to promote her ultimate message of living a healthy, unmedicated life. 

I love Lauren’s outlook and the way she helps us understand our relationship with ourselves, those we love and her admonition that we “feel the feelings.” Never forget that your connection to others will always be more important than the grind and the goals. Thanks Lauren for the reminder that there is no space for fear to live when we are guided from a place of love.

You can connect with Lauren on her website www.laurenzoeller.com, on Instagram @laurenzoeller, and on Facebook at facebook.com/lzoeller

Melanie Walker believes your mindset is reflected in your environment. As the owner of NEAT Method, a luxury professional organizing company, she’s passionate about helping busy people live in well-appointed spaces where they can shop in their own closets and help them create more time and space for the things they love the most. 

Melanie and I talk the energy of things, be it anabolic or catabolic (oxygen v dead weight), the things we hold on to hoping to fit back into them, and healing through purging. I get a little personal advice on blending families and homes, honoring our partners, and why it is so important to clear our space so we can clear our minds.

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.
