234: My Divorce, My Career & A Few Other Things I've Never Shared...

On Air with Ella - episode 234


I am joined by friend and long-time listener Biz Petersen, who I met a few years ago at a listener meet up in New York. She's grilling me about details of my life that I have never shared before, including my greatest failure, my relationship secrets, and where we're headed with the podcast...

Biz is asking questions like:

  • In your 20s and 30s, was there ever a moment that changed the course of your career?

  • How do you balance your podcast and other business?

  • How are you different “in real life?"

  • What don't you talk about on the air?

  • What is your take on the Law of Attraction and "manifesting" the life that you want?

  • What advice would you give to 18-year-old you?

  • What is your biggest challenge in marriage?

  • What is your biggest challenge in parenting?

  • My failed, 10-year marriage (that I've never spoken about!)

  • What is so hard in a healthy marriage

  • How I got tripped up between body obsession, body acceptance and still wanting to be fit and healthy ... and how I feel about it now

  • How I am a bit more "woo" than I might have let on ;-)

  • What nobody tells you about building a career

  • How my 18-year-old consulting business was formed out of a desperate situation

  • Showing up even when you're utterly "unqualified"

  • Why my 40s are wayyy better than my 20s and 30s

  • What I mean by finding my space as a "Self Improvement Sherpa".... and never a guru

  • How a silly photo on my 40th birthday inspired me to take the leap into podcasting

As usual, we start there but cover so much more ground about what it means to show up every day in this life we're each trying to build for ourselves.
