    I'm a big believer in understanding why you feel what you feel (or don't feel). There are infinite reasons why you might find it difficult to trust yourself when making relationship decisions. But in talking and working with thousands of women over the years, I've noticed a couple of big ones. In today's episode, I reveal three of the most common reasons why it's hard to trust yourself in your love life. 7:59 - Why your mind shouldn't be the only thing you use to make decisions 10:46 - Example of how your mind can go into overdrive (and how society make things worse) 13:36 - How education or “edutainment” shows up as another culprit in your lack of self-trust in dating 18:04 - Why this third reason for your lack of self-trust lights such a fire under my ass 24:37 - What's missing in a lot of mindset work and “new age” concepts like the Law of Attraction 28:00 - How all three reasons can compound on themselves and work in tandem I hope you enjoyed this episode!

    Back when I originally recorded this episode in 2019, I felt some resistance to doing so. It's a little bit of a tricky subject about coachability. I didn't feel like the kind person to say who is or isn't coachable, despite working one-on-one with lots of women.  But there are key differences in those who got far with my coaching versus those who don't. In this episode, I reveal the tell-tale signs of coachability and uncoachability so you can see where you land and if you're ready to get farther in obtaining the relationship you desire. 7:00 - My definition of coachable and why it has nothing to do with worthiness 9:56 - One sign of uncoachability that I hear from a lot of potential clients 13:23 - An uncoachability sign that closes you off from possibility 14:55 - A telltale sign that, while usually fine, can mean you're uncoachable if you approach it like this 17:08 - Something a lot of my audience hides behind that shows uncoachability 18:38 - The constant feeling about dating that also shows uncoachability and what you need to know if you think you've already healed 22:07 - How awareness, detachment, curiosity, and celebration demonstrate that you're coachable 27:37 - Feeling coachable?

    Beating yourself up for reaching out to the ex you just can't seem to quit? I can't count how often I've had these kinds of conversations with clients! Today, I talk with my former client M who's frustrated with herself because she recently reengaged with an ex of hers. And it isn't the first time she's done it either, but she knows it's not good for her and wants to move on completely. The truth is that there's a real emotional need underneath actions like this. And addressing that provides the best way for M to reach her ultimate goal: releasing this person from her life. So what is going on underneath, and what can she do? Tune in to find out and if you can relate to her (whether you've sought out a former partner for the first or the millionth time), I hope this episode gives you permission to be kind to yourself. 1:56 - The connection between food and reaching out to your ex 7:15 - M reveals the crux of her situation 13:03 - Going back to see where M's feeling of invalidation comes from 18:51 - What keeps M stuck in this cycle 23:14 - Why trying to use willpower ultimately doesn't work and what I recommend M do instead 28:48 - The one thing M might still want to explore 30:36 - Suggestions for cutting cords keeping you plugged in emotionally to things you want to release 34:32 - The key to not letting your action have power over you 39:25 - Re-emphasizing the main points of this coaching call with M 42:54 - Something I didn't talk about with M that's worth mentioning I hope you enjoyed this episode!

    Choosing dating partners based on compatible zodiac signs is a thing. You've probably tried it yourself or seen others with dating profiles specifically requesting partners of certain signs. But contrary to what's often depicted in the media, astrology isn't about controlling your fate. It's not about saying, for example, that you as a Gemini need to date an Aries. In today's show, I've invited my friend and astrology expert Veronica Perretti back to the show to talk about astrology! This time we discuss the real truth behind astrology, how the main three signs form the basis of who we are, and how best to use it to figure out romantic compatibility. 9:48 - Using astrology, for this reason, keeps some people trapped in cycles 14:14 - How checking your astrology resembles keeping tabs on the weather 21:04 - Why astrology actually can be a little predictive sometimes 26:35 - How the big three signs in astrology (sun, moon, and rising) help form your personality 37:17 - How to know if you're romantically compatible with another person 46:31 - Simplifying astrological compatibility to the most basic level 53:49 - What you need to know about the coming Mars retrograde if you're a Gemini I hope you enjoyed this episode!

    This episode starts off with a common fear I hear from many women in the community: I finally met someone great, how do I not mess it up?  I discuss this very issue today with my caller, Abby. But like usual on the show, there's a hindrance to her feeling more secure in the relationship. In this case with Abby, it's rooted in her relationship with her mom.  It's not that she needs to heal her relationship with her mom, but she needs to set boundaries because it's bringing out her core wounds.  This is the equivalent of picking off scabs when you're trying to heal a physical wound. Setting boundaries will give Abby the space she needs to have an even better relationship with her mom.  It will also help Abby do the inner child work she needs to do to feel less anxious in her romantic relationship. 1:19 - An example of something I have been experiencing lately where I need to set a boundary 5:09 - An introduction to my caller today who's in a healthy relationship, and is scared she's sabotaging it 6:16 - Abby presents her fear 9:35 - Abby describes her childhood with her mother 16:30 - My advice to Abby on how to heal her core wound by setting some boundaries 21:05 - The one place Abby wants to set a boundary with her mother 26:18 - A tool Abby uses to help ease her anxiety  27:23 - My suggestion to help Abby curb her anxiety 33:10 - A recap of my call with Abby   After you listen to this episode, here are your next steps: Check out my free workshop The 5-Step Strategy To Banish Anxiety and Overwhelm in Your Love Life Ready to explore what working with me is like?  Learn more here.

What about when the money is in your account and you have a good job or business to keep it flowing, but you still feel the stress? Just like being in codependent relationships or repeating people-pleasing patterns can wreak havoc on your emotions and sense of self-worth, your money stories can serve a similar function.
