[05:41] – It felt really awkward and scary and exciting and exhilarating … and then magic happens. 

[09:19] – Here’s where I’m stuck. How am I going to get past that? What do I need to do? How do I need to love myself through this, and what is on the other side? 

[11:40] – It’s about sharing, and showing people a different way of being. 

[13:08] – That’s how I processed my pain as a kid, and as a young person. – Putting on a smile and acting like everything was okay.  

[28:43] – We can always learn, we can always improve, we can always practice and get better at what it is that we want to. But we’re not going to do a damn thing until we’re ready.

81 – Dr. Michelle Mazur’s 3 Word Rebellion

This week: Dr Michelle Mazur is a speech coach and helps people powerfully deliver their message. She works with business owners and speakers to help them stand out. She talks to us about her “Three Word Rebellion” and what that means.

Listen to this Episode (Click here)

About Michelle:

Dr. Michelle Mazur believes that speakers, entrepreneurs, and business owners should craft a message that is bigger than YOU and your business. This message should call in your audience. Incite action always. Turn the audience into the messengers of your Message.

A little bit on Michelle so you know she walks her talk — She has her Ph.D. in Communication with a specialization in persuasion. She founded Communication Rebel® on the belief that communication changes the world, so that’s what she helps business owners, entrepreneurs, and speakers do: rebel against the status quo to make a difference, one compelling message at a time.

She is the CEO of Communication Rebel and the author of Speak Up for Your Business and Speak for Impact. Her rebel yell has appeared in Fast Company, Inc., Entrepreneur, PR Daily, and She Owns It. Michelle has helped hundreds of business owners and speakers, some of whom have gone on to book $10,000 speaking gigs, become international speakers (even speaking in front of world leaders!), and raise three times the amount of money expected for the launch of a charity.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her adoring husband, 3 obsessive felines, and a huge collection of Duran Duran memorabilia.

show notes

[06:01] – I’m one of those people who believes communication changes the world.


[12:00] – So once you recognize there is something in you that’s out of alignment, then you have yo figure out: What is it? What have I gotten away from?


[12:30] – I also had this weird feeling that there was something outside of me that wanted to break through.


[14:23] – Communication to me, it’s thinking deeply about the person who’s receiving it. That’s one of my big beliefs.


[18:47] – I love the conversations I get to have with my clients. Because they’re fascinating and they’re meaningful and and they’re deep and they’re big.

[20:06] – To find your message, you have to move past your own B-S.

80 – Ali Shapiro on Radical Healing & a Truce With Food

Our guest today is Ali Shapiro. Ali is the creator of Truce with Food®, host of the top-ranked podcast Insatiable, a holistic nutritionist, integrated health coach and rebel with a serious cause. She’s academically, practically, and empathetically aware of how the medical system, diet culture and body positivity movements all have their own flavor of crazy. She created her Truce with Food method while in graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania where she earned her Masters in Organizational Dynamics, which is like getting an MBA in the change process, where she drew from her decade plus of working with real life clients and her own personal healing journey from having cancer as a teenager.

show notes

[4:03] Our medical system, the diet movement, body positivity – any type of approach is only as healthy as the cultural myths it’s willing to examine.  

[10:33] What does it mean if we think that we don’t have any willpower? Let’s really look at that.  Is that a symptom? Or is that the real issue?

[17:11] Healing is violent and it’s beautiful and it’s like WTF, right?

[24:49] The body is this deep metaphor for vulnerability.

[25:13] The body is a mystery.  It will be the death of us. Literally.  That’s why we will pass on – from the body.

[26:48] A truce is really about being curious, and being curious about our story.

[37:09] We do need someone to help us guide that in a very curious, non-judgemental way – and I think that’s the big secret, that’s not a secret.  We don’t need all these people. We don’t need everyone to approve of us. We just need to find the people who are going to help us find our way.
