Jeff sits down with Nicole Poole as she shares very deeply about her life journey, about her work in the community that is making love cool again in Oklahoma City through SPARK! and her pandemic street art, about her evolution as a human being, an artist, and as a creative changemaker.To learn more about Nicole and her projects, visithttps://www.nicolepoole.comTo learn about SPARK!visithttps://www.sparklahoma.comABOUT NICOLEI am a broker of delightful disruption hell-bent on making love cool again.After a couple of decades in NYC and a few years in Paris, I have returned to Oklahoma, where I seek opportunities to connect with other curious humans, create art, and initiate projects for the common good. My background is multidisciplinary collaboration, where generosity and authentic response transcend discipline, language and culture. Spending decades in creative spaces governed by “I don't know - let's be lost together” has taught me that curiosity in the face of uncertainty fosters deep connection, full expression and collective transformation. Process is the product, and the medium is, as always, the message. My personal journey of healing from Complex Trauma/C-PTSD is rooted in compassion, and I am uniquely able to create brave, safe spaces that nurture vulnerability, the surest path to risk, growth and innovation. My primary tool in performance is Soundpainting, a universal sign language for live composition, powered by the offerings of the performers, sculpted in real time to highlight the immediacy of live performance and the power of improvisation.Maverick Arts, LLC is the arm of my work that incorporates my artistic expertise with my desire to advocate for cultural dialogue and experience. I partner with individuals, non-profits, governmental organizations, educational institutions and industry to provide dynamic initiatives powered by global creative experience, expansive social perspective and contemporary collaborative expertise. ABOUT SPARK!SPARK! is a daring and diverse new ensemble of acclaimed artists joining forces to bring cutting-edge, immersive performance to the heart of OKC. SPARK! harnesses collective creativity to ignite community healing and cohesion, rethinking how the arts engage with each other, and with the public."We need spaces to heal from the trauma of isolation, division, inequity and loss brought or revealed by the past year.Live performance is uniquely poised to foster belonging, meaning and unity. But to do so effectively, I believe we've gotta rethink and transcend both the idea of shared space and the transactional, passive entertainment we've become accustomed to. Throughout my career as a collaborative performing artist, I have seen, time and again, that creating a performance together, in a public space, has the power to activate vibrant, light-hearted and radically inclusive engagement. In fact, studies have proven this - the evolutionary psychology concept of positivity resonance explains why our heartbeats synchronize when we gather: collaborative, shared co-experience of positive emotion is the most elemental building block of love. I feel called at this moment in our lives to share the expertise I've honed in NYC and Europe with my hometown of OKC. Intentionally applied radical collaboration can help us come together with curiosity, compassion, joy and play. That's what SPARK! is all about."Nicole Poole, Producing Artistic DirectorSPARK! joyfully merges dance, visual art, music, poetry and theatre into wildly unpredictable, one-of-a-kind happenings created with the public in pop-up locations accessible to the broader OKC community. Our events are free of charge and intended to reconnect us through active creativity, radical collaboration and shared humanity.
Welcome back to the Reality Wine Down! This week we have breakups, engagements, RHONY gossip and some Winter House thoughts.

Next we get into RHOP where they are still on their couples trip, RHOSLC with the Lisa/Whitney drama continuing, and RHOBH reunion part 2 where we get some more scoop on the EJ/Tom of it all! Cheers!

Building a New Type of Relationship“For the future of commerce to thrive, brands must be able to own those direct relationships with their customers.” -RosaIn recent news, Yotpo and Shopify have joined in a platform partnership to help accelerate Yotpo's growth and ultimately empower merchants to grow their relationships with consumers. “It's never been more important than now to truly understand your customer. This partnership with Shopify allows us to grow that relationship and loyalty with customers.” -RosaHow does Yotpo provide more value to customers compared to others? It's the little things. Packaging, service, 24-hour chat help, and more. They work on delivering their promise to their merchants. When you give your customers choice and let them give the opportunity to set their values, they'll feel a mutual value exchange. In the end, you will be better off because you will be using tools to build empathy rather than using tools to engage. We are needing a new type of marketer. The creative and the relational need to come together. This new marketer focuses on loyalty and creating relationships with customers at the same time.“Even if your customers are shopping in-store, you need to make sure you're tying their online and in-store experience together. They need to stay connected” -Rosa Associated Links:Learn more about Rosa Hu, and YotpoListen to our other episodes of Future CommerceCheck out our latest report: Nine by NineSubscribe to InsidersHave any questions or comments about the show?

Creating boundaries with clients is important to keeping that work/life balance and not opening your door to be contacted at any hour.

Welcome back to Season Six of Happy Porch Radio. Today, we are joined by Julia Venn from Foodwise, a social enterprise which fights against food waste, and food insecurity by helping businesses repurpose their own food in order to help people in need. We talk to Julia about the importance of distinguishing between contexts across Africa's diverse countries, and how she came to leave Germany to co-found Foodwise Mauritius, Morocco, Ivory Coast, and Madagascar. She unpacks the important work that Foodwise does and how it ties in with the circular economy, and shares the powerful insight that we can't talk about Africa in the homogenous way we do about Europe. You'll also hear about her experience navigating cultural differences, and why she believes that there is something to be learned from each culture, even if they don't use the same terminology. We hope you tune in today to hear all this and more!

Today's guest is Leslie Ehm, Swagger Coach, Amazon #1 best-selling author of Swagger: Unleash Everything You Are and Become Everything You Want, speaker, and Chief Fire Starter at Combustion Training: a creativity-fueled training company that transforms people so that they can transform organizations. In today's conversation, Leslie tells us her story; from working as a TV host, script editor, and advertising creative director, she found her true voice and started her own training company, building creative companies through a foundation of support for creative and inspirational people. We discuss the slow growth of Combustion Training due to the need for trainers to be subject-matter experts in order to avoid the sub-par training experiences that she has seen in the past. From this realization came the origin and process of Leslie's book, Swagger. Leslie shares the hard choices she made to keep her authentic voice, the methods she used to keep the words of others out of her mind, and how she connected her unique story to thought leadership. Plus, she shares the favors she called in to generate word-of-mouth for the book, and why paying back those favors is an important part of her publishing process. Three Key Takeaways: When bringing others onboard to spread your thought leadership, be picky. Only work with those who are the right fit for you. It is crucial to write your thought leadership book in your authentic, individual voice. If you ask others to promote your thought leadership, pay it back (and pay it forward).

My guest on this episode had the entrepreneurial spirit in her from a very early age. She was selling headbands that she created on the playground at the age of 9! Stephanie went on to go to school for engineering. She also always held on to her artistic side, creating art and teaching yoga. During her yoga training, Stephanie was introduced to the vegan lifestyle. At one point she found that there was space for more options and decided she'd create one! She started her own company, Kind Roots and made her first product in June of 2020, The Kind Roots Burger, a 100% vegan veggie burger. She's been selling them on line, at pop ups and most recently has shown up on shelves in her first store in Scituate, MA!
Self-evidently, design and creativity are everywhere -- literally in every man-made thing we make, use, or celebrate. According to today's guest, the act of design and creativity can benefit everyone, whether they see themselves as creative or not. Sarah Stein Greenberg is Executive Director of the d.school at Stanford (aka the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design), which explores what great design can bring to global industries. She's the author of the book Creative Acts for Curious People: How to Think, Create and Lead in Unconventional Ways. Sarah cites the freedom of Lego construction, and her father's carpentry, as twin inspirations for her own creativity. We talked about design as a language and creativity extending beyond the narrow realms of “art”. Among the highlights: How navigating uncertainty requires an open attitude to creativity. The importance of “meta-learning.” The value of recognizing one's own bias. Strategies for exploring serendipitous discovery. The difference between divergent and convergent ideation. How to solicit and use constructive criticism. Struggle as a sign that productive learning is occurring. How to overcome creative blockages. Enjoy! Have a question?

This week Margo is chatting about finding joy, spreading joy, and ways in which we can seek more joy with author and illustrator, Kimberley Kay. After a busy career in the travel industry running press offices for big travel companies she decided to pursue art and illustration, partly prompted by a serious knee injury which was the catalyst for a new perspective. Her bright, colorful illustrations illustrate positive emotions and happy times. She loves working with vibrant watercolor paints, free motion embroidery and intricate paper cutting techniques. Through her work under the brand of Inspire by Kim she encourages people to find joy. Margo and Kim discuss: Life before illustration and why skiing is the main theme across all of her work Trusting in your own path and finding joy along the way The best lessons she's had from working with a coach Flexing her courage muscle and putting in the work The important role accountability and community have played in her success Immersing into courses and opportunities to release blocks and learn new techniques How and why she distracts her conscious mind while she works Using LinkedIn as it pertains to her career as an artist And more! Kim's Ski A to Z work is part of a wider intention to encourage people to seek joy, to endeavour to find their joy and to go deep into what and where joy is for them. Joy and smiling makes the body release endorphins which are happy chemicals and natural pain killers. Her goal is to make the joy of skiing and being in the mountains more accessible by providing information and advice.

Hello dear listener! Before we begin, would you please rate and review this podcast? TY BB! This episode of going to be a bit raw and real. A lot has evolved in the studio since we last talked this openly. I've hired a whole new team (including my husband!). We are continuing the things that work while doing our best to weave sustainability into the productivity. My creative practice has ebbed and flowed and I'll bring you behind the scenes on that process. I'm opening the doors to The Creative Maven Mastermind tomorrow (October 21st)! I am SO EXCITED about offering this year-long mastermind again. If you are craving a space to nourish your dreams, grow your business, and step into greater success, then apply to join us! Applications are open for just under a month. Traveling, resting, working on health... Last summer we talked about burnout (episode 41, August 30th 2020) and the process of healing from Burnout has been slow and constant. A metaphor came to me while expressing how this process feels that I think is helpful. Our journey happens within a beautiful mountainous landscape. There are meadows, cliffs, valleys... When you "burn out" you are, essentially falling over the edge of a cliff -- you might fall incredibly far or just a few feet. The recovery time may look different depending on how far you fall and how much energy you have to tap into. Climbing back up the mountainside is just part of the healing process. The other part is a bit sneaker. We know that falling over the cliff is less than ideal - right? that makes sense. However, we tend to flirt with danger just a bit. Maybe it's the hustle culture. Maybe it's the stack of shoulds and "musts" consistently in our orbit. Maybe it's poor habits formed early... regardless, learning that hovering near the edge of that cliff is not a sustainable way to live. I like to be close to that edge. I like the pace of it, the energy required, the "effort" of it all -- however, health (mental, physical, emotional, relational health) is not possible when near the cliff. People can't come near you. You can't make one wrong move. There is too much at risk. My focus for 2021 and 2022 is learning to take consistent steps away from the cliff edge and into the safe and gentle spaces of the meadow where I can dance and sing and create without risk or fear. Where there is space to move and take bolder actions because the risks are less extreme if they fail. There are a lot of layers to HOW we can do that as profitable entrepreneurs (we can't just play all day -- though that would be lovely). Practically, this means hiring a team, establishing boundaries around my energy, setting expectations, being a bit more flexible/generous with deadlines and timelines, and (most importantly) respecting myself enough to care for myself. If you can resonate with this, you are in good company. We can grow and progress together -- away from the cliff. Just back away from the cliff a little more each day. We can do this. ;) 2020-21 has been exhausting. We're doing so, so well. Now it's time to allow a little ease and healing into our lives. This is important because when we are nourished we are able to create good and nourishing work. Let your work be big and bold in the world, dear Creative!

Part 1 Being an artist is hard sometimes but there's not much else that Pamela loves to do more than to create art, except for talking about art with other artists. Specifically talking about how to be more productive, more authentic, more free, and braver; She really loves that. Pamela is the creator and facilitator of Strong Artist Life and a professional abstract painter pursuing my career as a fine artist. She knew she wanted to be an artist when she was in kindergarten and studied Fine Art in college. Pamela has created art her whole life and spent too much of her adult life working in the corporate world at the peril of her artistic productivity. Pamela spent most of her life in Houston and then became a bit of a vagabond for a few years moving from Texas to Wisconsin, to Washington, to Florida, to Michigan, and back to Florida. Over a year ago, she heard the call to create a supportive and authentic group for artists that would help them become stronger artists and better people. Pamela states "It's been a fantastic experience watching these artists grow in their confidence, their output, their quality, and into new aspects of their careers. Their growth and success have continued to fuel my own art and confidence to continue to grow as an artist and as a facilitator to other artists."

Recycling has gone awry, and there is plastic everywhere! Do you sometimes forget to put recyclable items, like plastic soda bottles, pill containers, and the little plastic takeout cups and lids from takeout food, in the right place and end up throwing them out with the trash? Or have you ever had something that you would like to recycle, but you do not know what to do with it? I am Marla, the Green Home Coach! Today, I am excited to have my occasional co-host, Tony Pratte, AKA Tony, the Green Guy, joining me in my virtual studio for another episode in our series on the climate crisis, where we discuss convenience, where our plastic products come from, and tips you can use for better and wiser recycling! Creative solutions Even though Tony and I do not always see eye-to-eye on everything, we are not afraid of having difficult conversations. We are just as willing to talk about things we disagree on as we are about things we agree, to find creative solutions. Katharine Hayhoe Katharine Hayhoe is a well-known Texas-based climate scientist. She is encouraging people everywhere to open up the conversation about the climate crisis. Back in the day When Tony and I were growing up, we had to pay a deposit for the glass bottles the soda came in. We would get the deposit back again when we returned the empty bottles. We also had regular recycling drives in our neighborhoods. What has changed? Convenience, or taking the easy way out, has taken precedence over everything else, and many people do not think twice about throwing away single-use containers or packaging materials. Impatience Our lives have become more complicated. Most people are used to getting whatever they want immediately or getting instant responses from others whenever they try to contact them, so they have become impatient. As a result, they are unwilling to make a plan to recycle something and would rather throw it into the trash immediately. The unintended consequences of convenience There was an explosion of fast food in the 1980s. Since then, it became all about convenience, and we never stopped to think about the unintended consequences of what was happening. Plastic Plastic has had more unintended consequences than we ever imagined. Behavioral inertia As a result of getting used to doing things very easily, many of us now suffer from behavioral inertia when we need to change our habits. In a book I read, the author explains that it is far easier to change an existing habit than it is to start a new one. Swaps Get into the habit of swapping single-use or unrecyclable plastic items for items that can be reused or recycled sustainably. The numbers In the United States, in 2017, we produced 35,400,000 metric tons of plastic. Of that, only 11% got recycled. You cannot mix plastics that are to be recycled More than 70% of recyclable materials land up in landfills. That can happen because people throw items that are not recyclable into recycling bins, which could contaminate an entire batch of recycling. Another problem is that many municipalities have not been able to keep their recycling programs going or going as robustly as before. New types of plastic also complicate things by adding to the vast assortment of plastic products that we still need to figure out what to do with. What recycling means Recycling something means rescuing and processing the material it is made from to make something new. Driving the market We need to drive the recycling market by demanding more recycled products. That will motivate companies to provide more vibrant, sustainable, and financially rewarding recycling services. Virgin plastic The bulk of our virgin plastic gets made from petroleum. By recycling that plastic, we recycle the inherent value of those products. Where do our products come from? Supply chains have become globalized and very complex, so many of us do not know where our plastic products come from. We need to pay more attention to that and learn more about it. Cut out the waste There are many good uses for plastic. To get the best use out of plastic, we need to cut out all the wasteful ways it gets used. Recycling labels Only one in five Americans always look for the recycling labels on items before throwing them away. Brands could help by making more of their packaging materials recyclable and making the labels on their packaging easier to see. A fast-growing number of solutions A fast-growing number of solutions are coming up for recycling. Many new companies are using less or no packaging. Solutions are also being provided by businesses like my son's company, Printerior, which makes 3D printing filaments out of recycled plastic. Some tips for better and wiser recycling: Try to use non-disposable items at least 80% of the time. Ask yourself if you truly need an item before purchasing it. If an item does not need to be packaged after you have bought it, accept the receipt and carry it out of the store. If you have to choose something disposable, choose something reusable or easily recyclable. Develop the habit of always doing whatever you need to, to dispose of items responsibly. Read the labels, and put whatever you are throwing away into the right place.

Ken Ham joins Yvette Hampton to talk about the ministry of Apologetics at Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the Ark Encounter, and why it's so important to empower our children with Biblical answers to life's questions. In this second interview with Schoolhouse Rocked cast member, Ken Ham, we discuss Ken's groundbreaking book Already Gone. Leading up to this book, research showed Younger generations walking away from the church. Already Gone discusses the reasons that these kids are walking away. What they found was that one of the reasons kids were walking away was that when they had important questions about God's Word they weren't provided answers by their parents or Bible teachers. The way to combat this is to teach apologetics in our churches and homes. Come back tomorrow for the rest of this conversation.

“You have to allow the messiness and the struggle.” - East Forest Today's guest, East Forest is one of my all-time favorite musicians and a kindred creator. His music has been the soundtrack to many of my magic mushroom journeys and in this interview, we talk about the ins and outs of creativity, healing, and mindset. After a difficult childhood plagued with depression, East Forest started using psychedelics and making music for other people on psychedelic journeys. He maintains that you have to allow the messiness and the struggle to unleash your creative potential. We touch on many key questions surrounding music and psychedelics, like how to create music that can accompany a psychedelic trip, which instruments he uses for his albums, and how to unlock your creativity. We also answer some questions that have been nagging me for a long time, like why psychedelic ceremonies so often begin with percussion.

There was a time years ago when I wanted to engage with my neighbors, but I was simply too exhausted by my multiple jobs and a busy schedule. I started feeling isolated, and I noticed I was losing my confidence in connecting with people outside my regular circle. One day, new neighbors arrived, started loving on me, and pulled me back into connection. Through them, I learned community isn't just a good idea, it's God's idea. Julie Heiliger is a dear friend and author of “Finding Home - Exploring God's Dream For Our Neighborhoods.” She gives us some beautiful ideas on how to love our neighbors well. And, who knows? With the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit, we just may be able to build the neighborhood of our dreams. 2:13- A Little bit of who Julie is6:03- Home prior to COVID7:47- What is perish 9:45- Julie's journey learning what it means to love your neighbors 14:50- Knowing the person of Jesus17:20- Being a faithful presence20:51- Living “above your place”23:56- Connection30:35- Researching the community you live in33:20- Pouring into the people of your community35:08- How do you cut through the political issues and still lead with love38:26- Creative ways Julie has demonstrated loving her neighbors 44:43- Examples of what God wants for community 52:10- Being sensitive to the Spirit of God
