The Case: Denise has Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism and has been trying to balance her thyroid for years. She tried Synthroid, Levothyoxine and Armour but these left her feeling ‘off'. It seemed impossible to find something that would get her T4, T3 and TSH levels into range and give her ample energy. I knew that while she was on the right track, we needed a slightly different type of approach to solve her health mystery. When the standard solutions don't work, you might need to go custom. The Investigation I immediately thought of the work that Jim Hrncir has been doing with compounding thyroid medication. This is something he is incredibly passionate about ever since his own wife had challenges similar to Denise's. You may recall that Jim was on a previous episode talking about compounding hormones for treating menopause and perimenopause. It's episode 96 if you missed it. Typical Thyroid Treatment I talk a lot about Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism on this show. When we talk about treating the thyroid, the most common option is Synthroid. Synthroid is levothyroxine sodium which is synthetic levothyroxine. Tirosint is another brand of this same synthetic hormone but with no fillers. Synthroid is mostly prescribed by conventional doctors. While it replaces the T4 that the thyroid is not producing or producing enough of, the body still has to convert that T4 into T3. That's why it's important to test T3 levels to make sure that the T4 you are getting from Synthroid is being converted. Some people may be under converting which is why they are not getting full resolution of symptoms with T4 only medications. Going Beyond Synthroid Some patients aren't happy with the synthetic hormone options either because they are looking for a more natural solution or they aren't getting results from the synthetic hormone. This brings them to desiccated thyroid which comes under several brand names including Westhroid, Armour Thyroid, and Nature-Throid. Each option has different additional ingredients beyond the porcine desiccated thyroid and these fillers can sometimes be an issue. Supply of these options can sometimes be threatened because of supply chain issues and heavy regulations from the FDA. Sensitivity to Synthroid and other Thyroid Treatments The thyroid plays a very big role in how the body functions so it's important to pay attention to how well it is working by testing all the thyroid hormones - T4 and T3. It is important to have enough but at the same time, not too much. Getting too much thyroid hormone poses its own issues which include: Heart palpitations Nervousness Tachycardia (racing heart) Hot flashes Insomnia Brain fog Feeling wired Jim points out that before concluding that these issues are related to the thyroid medication, it's important to check thyroid levels and also check for other deficiencies, in particular low iron. The Compounding Option Compounding thyroid is the practice of combining various thyroid treatments in a custom way. Jim was a pioneer in this field. The process allows for highly customized dosages based on patient and lab test responses to micro-tweaking the dose. This dose then comes in a natural base with no toxic fillers. Also, once the correct custom formula is found, the compound can even be provided in a time release capsule that gives you just the right amount of thyroid, all day long, especially when T3 is involved. Accessing Compounded Thyroid Medication Jim's pharmacy is in Texas and he only serves his state. There are however 7000+ other compounding pharmacies across the country, but when you look for one in your area, you want to look for quality. If you are interested in finding a compounding pharmacy that can help you with a custom thyroid solution, Jim suggests you look for a compounding pharmacy that is PCAB (The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board) accredited. Compounding as a practice can have so many advantages as so much customization is available in natural forms. Unfortunately, compounding is under fire right now. Please check out compounding.com for suggestions on what you can do and how you can support the continued availability of compounded medications. Mystery Solved It was clear that Denise needed a custom solution to her thyroid issue. Based on the history of her blood work, it seemed that Denise needed both the T4 and T3. It also seemed like she might be reacting to some of the fillers in the commercially available T4. And, the desiccated thyroid she tried left her feeling wired and didn't sufficiently lower her TSH. When I looked at her labs after she took dessiccated thyroid, I could see that her T3 was high (which would explain the ‘wired' feeling). This made it clear that she needed more T4 and less T3 than the fixed ratio in DTE's and she would benefit from getting the T3 in a time release capsule so that it would be less jarring to her system. For her, compounding was going to be the best option. Conclusion We worked with her doctor to prescribe a synthetic T3 at a lower dosage and we got it in a time-released form. She started with 5 mcg which worked well but her T3 was still a bit low. We bumped it up to 10 mcg and that brought her T3 into range and she felt better. Now she was on a combination of Tirosint 75 mcg and 10 mcg of compounded time released synthetic T3 and it is working very well. Happy Ending On a combination of Tirosint 75 mcg and 10 mcg of compounded, time-released synthetic T3 Denise is managing her thyroid levels. Denise was very happy to have an answer and to be feeling better. Eliminating Health Mysteries For Denise we were able to find that missing piece of the health puzzle and help her regain her health. Could this be the missing clue for you or someone in your life? Links: Resources mentioned Thanks to my guest Dr. Jim Hrncir.

When Stacy Tuschl started teaching dance classes in her parents' backyard at age 18, she wasn't planning on starting a business. Within three years, she had 100 students, and the Academy of Performing Arts was born. It's now grown to hundreds of students, two locations, an entire team, a consulting business, and a 2019 Wisconsin Small Business Person of the Year award. Stacy's small business journey is anything but ordinary. In her conversation with Mickey, Stacy tells how her businesses got started and shares some challenges of experiencing early hyper-growth and forcing herself to slow down. After successfully navigating the 2008 recession, she thought she could handle anything. The 2020 pandemic brought more challenges than she imagined—like losing 25% of her business's income—but in the end, she said the pandemic was “the best thing” that could have happened for her.

Fam, we've gotta talk about parenting (this is for the caregivers too-you don't have to birth a child to raise one!)? It's likely that nothing will bring you more joy and laughter than parenting. Let's keep that same energy! Nothing will bring you more pain and frustration than parenting. Navigating this truth and finding peace beyond this tension is the task we're taking on today. We give ourselves permission to fully enjoy parenting when we face all that it comes with. There's more to it than dope outfits and the pride of having a “mini-me”. What do you do when your kid acts like the “you” you don't want others to see? How do we manage the growing pains of their teenage years? What will keep our hearts from being embittered when (not if) our darling child disappoints us intentionally? Telling the truth prevents us from being unprepared for the inevitable AND helps us stay in the joy this journey brings. Parents you ready to be encouraged? You're not in it alone. Let's work! I want to hear from you!visit: www.soulworkwithsahn.comconnect: email@example.com: @sahnpope on IG

Not too long ago I had a listener reach out and ask if I'd do an episode about navigating divorce. Her parents had just announced theirs, and this listener found herself lost in this new space. I promised her I would. I promised because there were so many times early in my parents' divorce, and even now, 18 years later, when I wished I would have been able to hear someone else's story, when I wanted to feel less alone, when I needed help better understanding and better navigating what was going on. Rather than just share my personal experience and what I've learned over the last nearly two decades, I've invited my friend Dr. Matt Townsend to help guide this discussion and offer his expert advice for not just navigating divorce as the child or parent when it happens, but also for navigating our relationships before it even becomes a possibility.

“Companies are really recognizing that this concept of greenwashing, and these bold ambitious assertions that they can't back up, that's no longer, that's not transparency. That is risk, and that exposing an organization to very concrete reputational and other risks….I think it's all about transparency driving trust, but it has to be credible, it has to be authentic and it has to be meaningful.” Kristen Sullivan, Deloitte Sustainability Compliance on Electric Ladies Podcast A new report from the Journal Nature Climate Change reports that 85% of the world's population is negatively affected by climate change. With that report and the big UN Climate Conference known as COP26 coming up in days – and President Biden's infrastructure bills moving through Congress – we have been focusing on risk and the changing role of companies in society. So, what do companies really think about their role today and how to report on it, called ESG reporting for environment, social and governance? Listen to Kristen Sullivan, head of Deloitte's Sustainability and Supply Chain Social Compliance Services talk about it with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson in this important and engaging interview. The management consulting firms have a unique perspective on this, because they analyze trends and advise companies across industries. You'll hear about: The need companies have to define the attributes of ESG that drive performance “in a data-driven way” so they can “evaluate long term value”? The critical role of transparency, primarily to build trust, and how and why companies can struggle with it. The impact of the rapid increased prioritizing of ESG from a “nice to have” to “must have,” especially over the past couple of years due to the confluence of covid, George Floyd, and climate change. How companies now have a broader definition of what drives risk including “financial risk, operational risk, reputational risk” and how they can systematically integrate those factors to find seize opportunities. Plus, insightful career advice …. “And I think that especially through a broader, sort of ESG-purpose lens, that establishing a competency in a business context (is important in your career), whether that's marketing or finance or supply chain or operations, whatever it is, and layering on a differentiated perspective – whether it's climate risk, whether it's societal consideration – to really be able to deliver on that traditional competence but at such a higher level, and through that value-enhancing lens.” Kristen Sullivan on the Electric Ladies podcast Read Joan's related Forbes articles here too.

“For us, we like going back to a time—and I'm sure nostalgia is feeding into that—where cell phones and the internet weren't around. If you went off with friends, it felt like you really could get lost on a grand adventure.” - The Duffer Brothers In this episode of Risking Enchantment I'm joined by Robyn Conroy, a professional animator who previously joined us for our episodes 'Cartoon Saloon: Celtic and Christian Coexistence' and 'The Prince of Egypt: An Epic in Animation'. This time she joins us to discuss the hit Netflix series Stranger Things. Set in the 1980s in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, Stranger Things is a sci-fi horror series centered on the supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl with psychic and telepathic abilities. In the episode we discuss our love for the show and it's grounding in the virtues of loyalty, friendship and courage. We also talk about the complicated relationship our society has with the past and nostalgia, as typified by the success of Stranger Thing's 80's setting. We look at the negative effect of an over reliance on nostalgia, as well as a look at how the digital age might be impacting our ability to embrace the present and even encounter the mystery of our faith.

Rachel Miller is the Founder and Brand Specialist at Co-Branding. Rachel shares with us how she was able to leave her 9-5 corporate management job to start her own business. Her serving heart, and how she employed more people than she needed for her company. She almost lost her company, but was able to turn things around and even help the employees find a job some where else after evaluating how much she was spending and how much was coming in. Her business was nearly at the point of financially not being able to exist anymore, and she realized that she was extremely unhappy with what she was doing. She had scaled up and hired a team far too aggressively, and I cared far more about the team's happiness and wellbeing than she did about her own. The business could not support the payroll, and she was delegating all of the tasks that she herself loved doing. Navigating a solution was difficult, but she ultimately realized that she had to be authentic and honest. She needed to make changes to ensure that her business (and herself) could be healthy and continue to prosper and grow. It was frightening and very overwhelming at times, but she was able to entirely restructure and downsize her business while also ensuring that all of her team members had a new opportunity to pursue so they would also be okay. What she does to stay focused on are always making time for a midday walk with her dog. Taking some time to clear her mind during a busy day by getting outside, moving her body, and spending time with her favorite little guy is incredibly peaceful. She tend to gravitate toward spreadsheets a lot when I have to organize my thoughts. I have one spreadsheet called “brain dump” which is dedicated to just trying to make sense of the things in her brain when everything just feels like too much, the most important thing, though, is to be honest with herself without judgment, and to be flexible. If she is having a day of overwhelm or a rough mental health day, and it's possible to do so, she'll try to make her workload a little lighter for that day so she can have the time and space she needs to feel what she is feeling and “recharge her brain battery”, so to speak. In our society, we accept sick days, but mental health days tend to have a stigma around them. We live in a culture of fast-paced overwhelm, and it's often frowned upon to take time to check in with yourself and make sure you're okay. Being able to do so now that she works for herself has absolutely changed her life. Rachel shared much with us, so listen and enjoy as I did. You can contact Rachel @: www.cobrandingstudio.com

We're going through some life changes right now. We've recently moved into our new house, which the process of building was a particular kind of hellscape I do not wish to repeat in my lifetime. Between balancing our work lives, raising a two-year-old, and building a home, to put it lightly: we've been dealing with some stress. It's led to a loss of identity that I was not quite prepared for. So let's explore the topic of identity and how to navigate these crises as mothers or just as people in the world.

As a freelance designer, you will face peaks and valleys while running your business. I've said it before, and I'll repeat it. There's nothing better than working for yourself. From deciding who you want to work with to how much you want to charge for your work. Being your own boss is, well, liberating. As your own boss, you get to set your own hours. Want to waste time during the day and work at night? That's your prerogative. Feel like getting away for a few days? Go ahead. You don't need permission to take time off. When you're working for yourself, you get to chose where and how you want to work. If you feel like spending the day at a coffee shop working away on your laptop, you can. If you feel like hunkering down at home to avoid all distractions, go for it. As a self-employed designer, a freelancer if you will, you have the freedom to make your destiny. I don't think there's any better career than that. However, I will give kudos to one aspect of working as a design employee for someone else—a steady paycheque. With all the restrictions, limitations and handholding that may come with being an employee, the one bright light is the knowledge that every week or two, on schedule, a predetermined amount of money gets deposited into your bank account. This money shows up regardless of how busy or not busy you were. This steady paycheque may be the only way that being a designer trumps being a freelancer. It's true. As a self-employed designer, a freelancer, you never know when or where you'll get your next payment. Nor how much it will be. And that can cause a lot of stress in your life, especially if you are the primary breadwinner in your household. Because even though your income may be unpredictable, your monthly expenses are not. They show up right on schedule regardless of the balance in your bank account. I wish I could tell you there's a simple solution to this dilemma, but there isn't. Ask any self-employed designer, and they'll let you know of their experiences navigating these peaks and valleys. Peaks when work, and of course income is in abundance. And valleys when they become scarce. There is no solution if you want to remain a freelancer. However, there are ways to mitigate the problem so peaks and valleys even out over time. Here's what's worked for me and some other methods I've heard work for other designers. Recurring revenue. Recurring revenue is as it sounds. It's revenue (or income) that recurs regularly. Retainer agreements. The best way to acquire recurring revenue is by offering a retainer to your clients. I talked about retainer agreements in episode 32 of the podcast and again in episode 255. The gist of a retainer agreement is offering an ongoing service to your clients that they pay for regularly. In some cases, you may have to sacrifice some income for the guarantee of this recurring revenue. For example, If your hourly rate is $100, you may want to offer a retainer where, if a client guarantees to pre-purchase 10 hours of your time per month, you'll only charge them $90/hr for them. Or if a client asks you to design social media posts regularly. You could offer a retainer agreement where they guarantee to pay a fixed fee for a certain number of graphics every month. Since retainer agreements are guaranteed recurring revenue, they act as a regular paycheck similar to what you'd get as a design employee. Some designers work exclusively on retainer agreements, allowing them to predict how much money they earn each month. There's a lot more to retainer agreements than just this. I suggest you listen to episodes 32 and 255 of the podcast if you want to learn more about them. But suffice it to say, retainer agreements are a great way to even out the peaks and valleys. Website maintenance agreements. Another form of recurring revenue if you're a web designer is to offer a website maintenance agreement. A website maintenance agreement states that you will secure, update and take care of a client's website for a fixed monthly fee. It's kind of an insurance polity for their website. Website maintenance agreements require very little time and effort on your part and offer peace of mind to your clients. Selling digital products. Another form of recurring revenue, although not as steady or predictable as retainer agreements or maintenance agreements, is selling digital goods and products. You are a designer, a creative visionary. Why not use the design skills you offer your clients and put them to use for yourself? There are many platforms such as Creative Market or Design Cuts where you sell your creative wares. These offerings are available for purchase by other creatives and people who need certain assets but may not have the skills to create them themselves. I've created dozens of designs that I sell on various print-on-demand platforms. I get paid any time someone buys a t-shirt, coffee mug, phone case or sticker with one of my designs on it. This is another form of a digital product. For me, it's not enough to make a living. At least not with my few dozen designs I sell. But every month, I receive anywhere between $70 - $120 for my designs. Some of them I created years ago, and I'm still collecting money from them. And I'm sure if I dedicated the time to make more of these designs regularly, I could generate a more considerable recurring income. To learn more about selling digital products, listen to episode 155 of the podcast, where I talked about this exact topic with Tom Ross, the founder of Design Cuts. So, all in all, recurring revenue is a great way to even out the peaks and valleys you'll encounter as a freelance designer. Promote when you're busy. There are other things you can do to help ease the peaks and valleys situation. One of the best pieces of advice I've ever heard is "Promote your business when you're busy." It's a case of don't wait until you're thirsty to dig a well. It sounds crazy. When you're pulling your hair out because you have too many projects on the go and deadlines quickly approaching, the last thing on your mind is drumming up more work. But believe it or not, that's precisely the time you should be promoting your business. Why? Because marketing takes time to germinate. The more you promote your business while you're busy and experiencing one of those peaks in workload, the less deep the valleys will be that you'll have to navigate once the work rush dies down. If you do this right, you may be able to raise those lulls to the point where instead of peaks and valleys, you'll be cruising across an even plain. I know what you're thinking. If I'm that busy, how will I find the time to promote my design business? To that, let me say: Promoting your design business doesn't require a massive advertising campaign. All it takes is sending off a few emails to idle clients to ask how they're doing and if there's anything you can do for them. It doesn't take much. And if you do it right, your peaks and valleys won't be that severe. Draw a salary from your business. There's another way for you to lessen the impact of peaks and valleys. Remember when I said the one benefit of being a design employee is the regular paycheque? Want to know a little secret? You can make yourself a design employee of your own freelance design business and have the best of both worlds. What? No way! Yes, way. I know many designers who do just this. They treat themselves as an employee and draw a regular paycheck from their own business. Here is how it works. All revenue earned from design work, recurring revenue, and selling digital products belongs to your design business. It all goes into a business bank account and gets treated the same way any other company treats its capital assets. From that pool of money, you, the designer, draw a salary. Running your company this way puts the burden of dealing with the peaks and valleys on your business and not on you, the designer. As far as you're concerned, those peaks and valleys even out because you draw the same salary every week regardless of the business' income. This method spreads out your income evenly over time. Let me give you an example. Let's use some round numbers here and say you make your salary $500/week. One week you take on a $1200 web project. That $1200 is deposited into your business's bank account, and from it, you withdraw your weekly $500 salary, leaving $700 in the bank. The following week things are slow, and the only work you get is a $300 poster design. That $300 is deposited into the bank, bringing the balance up to $1000. At the end of the week, you withdraw your $500 salary, which leaves $500 in the business bank account. Enough for your next week's salary should no work come in. Here's the fun part. At any point, as the funds in the business' bank increase, you can always pay yourself a bonus. The other benefit is since the business has this money, it's available for business purchases such as new equipment or subscriptions and doesn't have to come out of your pocket, which lessens the hurt of spending it. I know many designers who use this model. In most cases, those designers run their businesses as LLCs or some other form of corporation. I have my business set up as a sole proprietorship, so it's not easy to separate the business from myself. I even know some designers who use a third-party employee payment service to prevent them from dipping into the business' bank account. The best thing you can do is check with your accountant to see if this is a good model for you. It may offer tax benefits for you as well, especially if your business is incorporated. Raise your rates. The last idea I want to share with you has to do with the rates you charge. Many designers who switch from full-time employment to freelancing use their full-time salary to base their freelance rates. Don't. As a freelancer, you are expected to charge more. If you were making $25/hr working for someone else, you should be charging your clients double or triple or even more for your services. As a self-employed designer, you have to pay for your own benefits. Three are no sick days or vacation pay, or parental leave. You have to make sure you are compensated for the risk of lost income due to anything from medical emergencies to vacations in the tropics. Call the higher rates you charge a form of self-insurance. You should make sure the money you earn today when things are going well will get you through the times when work dries up. You do this by charging enough to make sure your future is covered. Not sure how to raise your rates? Luckily for you, I wrote a blog post on this exact topic. It's up to you to deal with the peaks and valleys of freelancing. These are some ideas for dealing with the peaks and valleys of a freelance income. It may sound daunting and stressful. And knowing about these peaks and valleys may have you thinking that working for someone else is looking more appealing. But if you can learn how to manage the fluctuating income of running your own design business. Chances are you'll not only outearn your employed counterpart. But you'll enjoy greater job security, autonomy and flexibility. A 2018 study by Upwork shows that nearly three-quarters of full-time freelancers report earning more than when they had a full-time job. And 87% are optimistic about their future careers. In fact, more than half of respondents say no amount of money would get them to switch back to being full-time employees working for someone else. I know that's how I feel. Remember, running your own design business is two jobs–a designer and a business owner. When you're pursuing your passion, it's easy to get caught up in the former and forget about the latter. If all of your focus is on your design work, you're only doing half your job. It's that business owner side that needs to do whatever you can to ensure those inevitable valleys you'll face are not as deep as they could be. You do that by following the advice I just shared with you. One last thing. I've been talking about these valleys as if they are a terrible thing. Something you should try to eliminate if at all possible. But when they do happen, and they will, try to enjoy those slower times. Use them to your advantage. Get out there and network. Contact old clients you haven't heard from in a while. Work on personal projects you've been neglecting. And make sure you use those slow times to work on your business. You know, all the things you told yourself you'd get to one day. Heck, You can even use some of that slow time to relax and enjoy life. After all, when you're in a valley, it just means there is another peak on the horizon.
A few months ago, some colleagues of mine shared a video on their facebook pages announcing that they were getting divorced. We were so impressed by how they handled the announcement and when we reached out to interview them, they offered to come on together! So today we have Rev. Katrina Macaluso and Rev. J. Eric Thompson to share their story and insights with us.We dove deep into some heady theology, working to untangle some of the harm done by the church around divorce and with the Mark 10 text. But we also dove into the realities of changing a major relationship status, navigating a divorce with kids, as well as removing some of the shame around divorce.And friends, if divorce is a hard subject for you, give yourself some grace with this one. Take it piece by piece if you need to, and remember that every story is unique. Yours may look different than Katrina and Eric's and that's okay. What we hope to do with this episode is dive into how one family is navigating these waters and, in doing so, maybe offer a lifeline to others who have maybe felt shame and stigma around this really hard thing.Rev. Katrina Macaluso:Katrina is currently the minister of the United Church of Warsaw in Western New York. She is a graduate of Buffalo State College and Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. A fifth generation clergy person, she has served the church in a variety of capacities throughout her career. In her spare time, Katrina enjoys gardening and making music with her band, Languid Dandy. Rev. J. Eric Thompson:Growing up in a military family marked by illness, J. Eric Thompson embodies what he was once told by a mentor: caregivers are made, not born. He is an Episcopal Priest of 15 years with experience in military and medical chaplaincy, as well as parochial ministry. He has two brilliant but exhausting children, John and June (named both for family members as well as the country musicians). He currently serves churches in Western New York State.SPONSOR:This episode is sponsored by Bliss Hot Yoga & Wellness Studio in Kenosha, WI.

This week I took a break from interviews to discuss something important that I wish someone had talked to me about when I first got out of Scientology and which I've had to learn (as every other ex-cultists does) and that is navigating the world of the ex-cult community.

You know what kind of awareness you need to have before breast cancer. Check for lumps, discolorations, dimpled skin, inverted nipples, irregular discharge and do your regularly scheduled mammograms. But what should you be aware of after breast cancer? It's a whole new ball game with it's own set of fears, and challenges. Of course, you still follow through with medical advice and supervision, but what about how you feel about yourself? Are you aware of what stops you from connecting with others in the way you want, and what to do about it? Are you aware that you don't have to feel alone, beat yourself up, fight your own body or sabotage your own health because food or alcohol are the only things that bring you joy? Navigating the space after a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment takes some next level awareness to support you in creating the life you want and loving yourself in the way you deserve. That's what we dig into in this week's show.

In this episode of the DIY Sportsman podcast, Garrett talks about how to navigate the vast amount of changes that occur between the beginning and the end of the month. Changes include food sources, amount of available security cover, hunting pressure, and hormones. Garrett reviews data of daylight mature buck sightings from the 2020 season in locations near doe bedding throughout the month, and how it compares to sightings before mid-month. Strategy wise, being successful in early October requires a different mindset and skillset, and it can be important to not overpressure good pre-rut areas too early before bucks have started shifting over or showing up in daylight because of impact on the does. However, Garrett talks about a scouting strategy that has proven to be fairly low impact to gather intel before the pre-rut to help stay on top of anything that may have changed from the prior year.
