Cat Marnell didn’t make money so the world could see her, she made money so she could see the world.

Can you believe it's the final episode of 2023? Before we dive into the excitement of 2024, I've got a treat for you – it's the most downloaded episode of the year, my business year-in-review.

Why is this episode such a hit? Well, I'm a bit of an oversharer by nature. I believe in transparency because, let's be real, when we're open about our wins and losses, it helps everyone stop the comparison game. In to...

The holiday season is here, and motivation for getting work done is dwindling. We want to laugh, chill by the crackling fire, eat candy canes, and gossip at holiday parties. Today’s episode is giving post-holiday party gossip fun - it’s a re-air of Samantha Daily’s podcast, "Make Shift Happen," that I was featured on as a guest. It's the audio equivalent of the holiday cookies you’ve been craving.

Are you over the meme-ification of Human Design? I am. As a Reflector, I’m constantly told that I’m a unicorn, shapeshifter, and chameleon - WTF does that mean in the real world? How can I use that knowledge day to day?

Authority used to be a word that activated my rage. But as business owners, we’re constantly hearing how important it is to “establish our authority.” I always felt this framing set up a weird power dynamic between business owner and client.

Today’s guest, Hayley Lloyd, completely reframed my understanding of authority by introducing the idea of “feminine authority.” Hayley is a Business & Mindset Coach specializing in guiding ...

If you’re considering pursuing a digital nomad lifestyle, you need to listen to this episode. Last week, I touched on the ins and outs of traveling full time while running a business. This week, I get into the “invisible” challenges.

In the spirit of keeping it 100% - traveling triggers A LOT of issues. From missing your college friends’ weddings to dealing with gut issues and stress, I want you to go in prepared. After years ...

It’s time to demystify the digital nomad lifestyle. Traveling full-time sounds expensive and chaotic, doesn’t it? What if I told you I actually save more $, pay off more debt, feel safer, and get more out of life by traveling nomadically?

In today’s episode, we’re getting INTO IT. I discuss:

  • How to choose you’re next travel destination
  • Navigating foreign languages on your own
  • Finding travel communities for the inside s...

No, you don’t automatically need to go on birth control or Accutane in order to heal your acne. In fact, you probably shouldn’t because both ‘solutions’ come with REAL consequences for your health.

Today’s guests, Danielle Gronich & Kayleigh Christina, are co-founders of CLEARSTEM Skincare, the one-and-only toxin-free skincare line that targets both acne + aging at the same time. A few years ago, Kayleigh was experiencing cysti...

Imagine opening up your Stripe account, changing the view to “The Past Month” and seeing the number $100,000 on the screen. A $100K MONTH. That’s what happened to today’s guest, Samantha Smith, this year.

Since the last time we spoke on Ep. 159, she’s made her dreams a reality on multiple fronts. Her podcast, Make Shift Happen, reached million downloads on the podcast’s third birthday and she hit her goal of having a $100K m...

Americans idolize the Brits. They have ROYALTY! The QUEEN (RIP)! The drama of Meghan and Harry! We love to slurp the tea that comes out of the UK, and watch British actors play James Bond or princesses or lead characters in hit romance movies (Hi Notting Hill).

“You’re traveling to WHERE?!” is a question I get often. Isn’t that a place filled with violence? Won’t my phone get stolen in that country? We’ve all heard these comments before traveling to non-touristy spots. But I don’t want you or anyone else to miss out on life-changing places because of misconceptions and stereotypes!

Today, I’m joined by Melissa Bareham, a Purpose and Business coach who is a fellow female solo traveler. You...

Adult life can be super isolating. Like, how are you supposed to make friends when you don’t have recess, dance class, or a homeroom to bring you together?
