Piece of Work with Danielle Tantone

Hi there. Welcome to Piece of Work, the Podcast. I’m Danielle Tantone. I’m a nurse, author, coach, and survivor. I love inspiring people to live their best life, reach for those big dreams, and find joy even in the pain. As I wrote my memoir over so many years, trying to make sense of a story where I was way too often the bad guy instead of the hero, I came to understand that we are all a piece of work. But we’re also a work in progress. And even in our messiness, we are a work of art, too. All at the very same time. In fact we are all beautifully unique pieces of one masterpiece, waves in the same ocean. This podcast explores the stories and struggles that make us human, the miracles that surround us, and all the ways we work to make sense of it all. Welcome to Piece of Work, The Podcast, with Danielle Tantone. Please follow us now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon, or wherever you listen to your podcasts!

Getting to know James, contemplating our conflicting religions, trying to figure out if we have a future together...

My first husband, Ian, didn’t believe in God, but we still celebrated Christmas. I even cut down my first Christmas tree with him. According to him, I was too “religious.” But the truth is I’ve always been more spiritual than religious - seeking truth, trying to understand God and people, never simply following the ru...

My friend Rebecca Johnson happened to be in sweltering hot AZ, so we thought we'd chat on the podcast.

Just like me, she's a self-proclaimed hot mess and a work in progress. Her best friend's son was murdered, her husband died suddenly, and then she found out she had a rare form of eye cancer. That would be enough to knock the life out of anyone.

But laughter, friendship, breakdowns, work...and tr...

I take a bite of the best peanut butter and jelly sandwich I’ve ever tasted, soft bread
bursting with sticky grape jelly and smooth salty peanut butter. Mmm. It’s possible
anything would taste good right now, but I’m savoring every bite of this deliciousness.

This episode was a special treat. I somehow managed to convince my 17-year old daughter to come on my podcast - and she did brilliantly!

I think you'll enjoy getting a peek inside her brain and heart as she eloquently and honestly shares a few of her recent experiences. This episode will give you a taste of  what it's like to come of age and navigate life as a teenager in these roaring 20s. With cell phones, soci...

This one is sort of an informal interview, with Mike asking me the questions...then of course interjecting has own thoughts along with my answers! (When Mike and I are together on the podcast, there's always a lot of banter, but thankfully our usual  bickering  is held at bay by the microphones in front of our faces!)

  • We lived just a few miles fro one another in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois
  • Grew up in Scottsdale, AZ - wh...

Listen in to this deeply honest chat with interior designer Kara San Julian about breast cancer, kicking addictions, and taking control of her own life and health.

Kara was in the middle of Living Spaces with a design client when she got the news that she had cancer. ..

She continued to drink heavily even while on chemo...

But eventually she found healing and sobriety on her own terms.

We chatted about:

Five years ago when I was considering going back to school to become a nurse in my mid-40s, I read a book called The Shift that gave me an amazingly accurate view into a day in the life of a nurse. It was my great honor to sit down with Theresa Brown, the author of that book.

Her third book, Healing: When a Nurse Becomes a Patient came out in paperback last month. It's a wonderful read about health and caring, breast...

This is the first episode I've ever recorded all by myself without anyone else to banter with and bounce things off of. Of course, I didn't run out of things to say. I think I may have even shared a little bit of wisdom.  Listen as I share my thoughts about:

  • My trip to NY and Ivy league college tour with my daughter
  • Front porches
  • Why I want to call my coaching system Refresh Renew Relate
  • Picking up pennies
