EP 41: Cynthia Breaks Free, Part 2

Cynthia and Ray are enjoying life and feeling free in Florida.

Cynthia and Ray are enjoying life and feeling free in Florida.

Cynthia and I recorded this episode the week of Thanksgiving. Cynthia updated us on her big move to Tampa, Florida, and we dug deep into how in some ways she had to “break her own heart” to make the change. We both decided that it helps to have a little (or a lot) of faith when choosing the road less traveled. Meanwhile, we are grateful to you for being here for our journey!

Here’s to Getting Unstuck,
Brennen & Cynthia

Today’s episode is brought to you by Brennen's long-time friend Liberty Heise and her brand new soap company Bee Somebody. A teacher and school administrator by day, Liberty created Bee Somebody as a fun side-hustle after she started to keep bees at her home in San Antonio, Texas. 

Liberty sent me a box of bee somebody bars, and folks they have got to be the best-smelling soaps in the world. Homemade with all-natural ingredients and pure essential oils, her oatmeal and lavender soap is my absolute favorite, but I also love her prickly pear and rosemary & peppermint scents. To get your hands on these wonderful soaps, visit Bee Somebody by Liberty Heise on Etsy.

I’m flying solo today (for the first time ever... gahh I was a little nervous) and sharing a journaling habit that I’ve been practicing for the past month or so. It’s so fun and rewarding!

EP 39: Cynthia Breaks Free

Cynthia snapped this selfie in the lobby of her Philly hotel right before we recorded this episode. Her glasses game is strong!

In this episode, Cynthia and I chat about her recent move from Philadelphia to sunny Tampa, Florida. While the move has been a positive one for Cynthia and her partner Ray, she had to overcome a lot of fears and some emotional and logistical challenges to make it happen. Listen in to hear Cynthia’s powerful perspective on dealing with negativity from friends and family members when making a dramatic life change.

Oh yeah, and it’s Election Day in the USA!

Here’s how to find your polling place so you want to join us in voting in this important election.

EP 38: Adorable Cat Problems

Cynthia’s curvy kitty Bella is not shy

Cynthia’s curvy kitty Bella is not shy

This episode is a bit different from what we normally do! It’s a little lighter and more personal, just so you can get to know us better. One thing you may not know about Cynthia and me is that we both have pet cats that we adore.

Here, we tell the stories of how we came to bring our rescue cats home. We also share our cat problems in the hopes that we can one day get the amazing Jackson Galaxy on the show.

You will learn about:

Bella, who has a “cocaine claw”, is possibly addicted to catnip and pets Cynthia’s hair in the middle of the night

Oliver, who is “big-boned” and throws things on the ground when he’s hungry (which is always)

and

Mini Me, who loves to take walks on a leash and whose favorite foods are pizza, fries and popcorn

Just to make you laugh, here’s a bonus video of cats stealing pizza.

Oh and here’s the kitten shampoo that I recommend.

We hope you enjoy this heartwarming special episode!

EP 37: Sarah Zero on Becoming a Lady Boss, Part 2

Sarah Zero

Sarah Zero

Sarah Zero is the founder of Wellstruck, a branding studio that specializes in brand therapy, design, and websites for businesses owned by good people. She has a degree in Visual Communications and over 12 years experience in branding — including two years of teaching it at the college level.

Sarah also created Wellstruck Lady Boss, a series of intimate roundtable events for entrepreneurs in Philadelphia. Each event has space for just 12 women, and over 500 women have attended since it began.

As for life outside of work, Sarah lives in Delaware with her husband and pup. She does some pretty normal stuff like collecting plants, planning travel based on food, and watching movies with a strong female lead on Netflix. And sometimes she does some less normal stuff like foraging for mushrooms to make spore prints.

Sarah’s clients say she’s “refreshingly unpretentious” and her husband says she “makes fun happen.”

My favorite moments and insights from this interview:

  • Nothing seems random - Sarah ended up in visual communications orientation at her college rather than the one she was supposed to be in - it forever changed her path forward!

  • Sarah found the courage to leave corporate because of her experiences prior, where she was let go from her job and proceeded to get clients in order to pay her bills until she could find new work. She learned being an entrepreneur wasn’t that scary!

  • Sarah’s bout with cancer most resonated with me - it slowed her down and she had to stop working for awhile, which was scary. But her resilience coming off that is what shines through for me.

  • Sarah plans travel around food with her husband - how fun is that??

  • She makes spore prints from mushrooms, who knew? I loved seeing what spore prints were all about so she and I are now inst buddies. Follow her as well @heysarahzero
