Ever see someone at a fab resort you cannot afford? I love a good travel daydream, and heck a good resort! But often I find myself wistful for one day, instead of empowering and inspired for what I can make happen with my budget and family as they are today.

    In a culture permeated with so much productivity guilt, hustle narrative, so many options, ideas, and opportunities…

    My constant undercurrent is to feel guilty that I’m perhaps not working hard enough.

    I loathe that this is true! Because I know it’s zero percent helpful, and only harmful.

    And on paper I know the facts: I’ve built a successful business and been running it for 11 years. I’m the only boss I’m accountable to, so clearl...

    “We are certain that we were meant for more and that we don’t even deserve what we have.” -- Glennon Doyle

    How do we live in the guilt of abundance, and the longing for more?

    How do authors get a book deal? What does that even mean? What are the business elements behind the scenes of any creative endeavor?

    This is the stuff I geek out over! When you better understand the business mindset behind any creative endeavor, it demystifies other industries and pursuits. Plus, gives you great respect for those people you watch pursue and achieve it!

    A personal chat for any stage or feelings on being or having a mother. A few days after Mother's Day and with some articles that came across my IG feed as of late, I’ve been pondering:

    How we respond, trigger, idolize, yearn for and celebrate this complex topic that applies to every single one of us.

    A self-help author recently made some problematic posts, and my thoughts on the controversy was the most requested topic this week.

    In full disclosure: in this episode I neither mention her name, nor analyze her posts.

    This conversation isn’t about her as I’m far less interested in the missteps of individuals than the bigger picture of how we want to act and react ourselves in and around these situations.

    Am I doing enough?

    What will be enough?

    At what point can I rest without feeling guilty I should be doing more?

    I keep noticing this word in your questions, or the subtext beneath them.

    I feel it too. I ask it too. I chase it too.

    When we haven’t found the answer, it’s because the question is complex.

    Which means exploring multiple angles, peeling back layers, going deeper.

    • Dr. Death

      We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
