Last week’s episode about COVID-19 might have been intense as we talked about how to get prepared for it. With Dr. Varshini, we talk more about how to keep yourself sane, intact, and at peace. It’s normal to be anxious during a crazy time like this. When you realize you’re not as secure as you think you are, you need to be mentally strong enough to survive the situation. Join me on this Stellar Life Podcast episode with Dr. Varshini. Such an inspiring woman who has a lot of stellar tips for you to try during this crazy time. We talked about ways to calm your mind and take care of yourself during this crisis called COVID-19. Stay healthy!
The war on COVID-19 is just starting, and the solution to end the suffering, fear, and anxiety? It's us... the citizens of the world. If you're not living under a rock, I'm sure you're aware of how the number of those infected all over the globe is getting higher and higher. This is no longer just China's problem anymore. My guest, serial entrepreneur, and author, Steve Good, knows quite a lot on how to prepare for apocalyptic situations. In fact, he was able to predict that there was a major lockdown happening, so he and his family got into quarantine a month ahead of everybody. In this Stellar Life episode, Steve and I talk about how you can better prepare for situations like this, and what you should do to keep your family safe and secure after all of this is over. And now, on with the show!
The whole world is collectively in the midst of a huge challenge. Over the last several weeks, the news is filled with scary words like “pandemic”, “economy crashing”, and “city-wide lockdown.” The Coronavirus is not just attacking our immune system, it’s also targeting our mental health. A stressed mind leads to unhealthy habits. How does one retain peace of mind amidst all this chaos?
In this special solo episode, I share a few tips on how to remain calm and collected. I believe a clear mind produces the best decisions and in times like this, we all need to be wise in everything we do. I live in Los Angeles, and the last few days have been crazy! People are panic buying everywhere as if it’s the apocalypse. The media is sensationalizing everything and the entire city is on heightened alert. Even I panicked at first because I have a baby to feed, but all the aisles in the grocery stores are empty.
It can be debilitating and tiring, and if we don’t control our thoughts, our immune system will be affected. So my dear, let this special Stellar Life podcast episode be your guiding light today. Join me as we take a pause for self-reflection. On with the show!
My guest, Dr. Ramani Durvasula is a psychologist, professor, author and speaker. Her most recent book, Don't You Know Who I Am?, provides a deep insight on how narcissism is impacting all of us, what it is, and what we can do about it. Her work focuses on the impact of narcissism, entitlement in high conflict personalities in our relationship, health, workplace, and the world. I had to deal with a narcissist.
I was in a relationship with one and it messed up my life, but it turned out to be a gift because now I know how to value myself better. And I'm sure all of you came across a narcissist at some point in your life. If you're still dealing with one or if you are in a relationship with one or if you just want to know how to spot one so you won't get hurt, this is the episode for you. Dr. Ramani is brilliant. The conversation was awesome and I'm sure you're going to enjoy it just as much as I did. And now without further ado, on to the show!
It was an instant connection when I met Kristin Van Wey at a great mastermind we both attended called Heroic Public Speaking. Kristin is a ray of light. She's one of the most generous people I know. She's smart, kind, and she makes you feel how present she is to your needs. I feel rich just by having been friends with her, so I invited her to the show. This is one of my favorite interviews, not because she's my friend, but because I believe that her message is worth sharing.
Before the interview, she sent me this outline that contains her "stream of consciousness." Just by looking at it, you can quickly tell that it contains information that can easily become a bestselling book. She's so passionate and multi-talented! You can talk to her about almost any topic in the world and learn a lot from her.
Kristin is an internationally recognized leader, educator, speaker, and trainer in innovative approaches to wellbeing. She helped thousands experience insight, understanding, and remarkable results. With over 30 years of professional experience in health, Kristin is one of the leading voices on the use of essential oils. Her humanitarian efforts have brought hope and empowerment to communities in crisis. She dedicated to partnering with others to serve communities globally. I love this woman, and I'm sure you're going to fall in love with her as well. And now, without further ado, on to the show.
Today, we're going to learn how to hack your happiness with Scott Donnell. Scott is a serial entrepreneur who has dedicated his life to both physical and mental health. He is the founder of Apex Leadership Company, a fitness and fundraising program for schools. Apex has raised $75 million for schools and now has 115 franchises and 3 million customers.

Hapbee specializes in ultra-low frequencies, and with its patented technology, it can record small magnetic fields from chemical solutions. With the use of a wearable device, Hapbee can deliver dozens of safe, comfortable feelings to your body at the click of a button.
You can feel alert, calm, relaxed, sleepy, or focused, to name a few. Hapbee products will hit the market in March, and it has the potential to be what Dan Sullivan calls "the next consumer-generated revolution."
It's going to be revolutionary! Instead of taking drugs that can create side effects- where people who need to go to sleep or need some drugs for depression, or caffeine to feel more awake- you can eliminate all those substances and side effects by using this machine.
Now, Scott says that it's not a replacement for those, but it can be. Technology is evolving in the speed of light, and this is a technology for your feelings. For you to just sit, relax, and wear this wearable necklace or put it as a headband and feel amazing with just a click of a button. It lets you choose whatever you want to feel.
I had a fantastic conversation with Scott. He's a brilliant guy, and in this episode, you're going to learn all about how you can hack your happiness and feel even happier. And now without further ado, on to the show.
How are you doing today? Are you being the best person that you can be? Or are you looking for that epic version of yourself to rise? If so, welcome. My guest, Amber Sears, is a holistic business and lifestyle design coach who specializes in helping people heal, transform, and awaken through her potent retreats, teacher training, and online coaching. She's deeply dedicated to empowering you to embody your highest self and live your most fulfilling life now. She started as corporate, and then she had an awakening, and she found out that there is more to life than this, that there is magic in life when you get out of your head and into your heart, and also a great success when you do that. But it's the type of success that makes you feel fulfilled rather than just having titles or money. So she's very holistic and spiritual in her approach and a very successful entrepreneur. So for me, she's super inspiring, lovely and easy to talk to, and very sweet. And I'm sure you're going to enjoy this interview just as much as I did.
My guest today is an exceptional human being. He's one of the most extraordinary healers on the planet. What he does in real life looks like something out of a Harry Potter movie. Really, it's incredible. Donny Epstein is the founder of EpiEnergetics and the creator of NetworkSpinal. He's an energy healer who has helped so many people, including me, my husband, and Tony Robbins.
Donny started out as a chiropractor and created his own healing modality. He's an author, speaker, and healer who shares his new knowledge about energy and focus, and how to have the most significant impact on the world. Donny is a unique human being and a real-life wizard. My experience with Donny has been nothing short of extraordinary.
It's tough to explain getting entrained by Donny because it's like trying to explain the flavor of the best ice cream you've ever tasted to someone who never ate it. I am a better partner, coach, and leader because I was privileged enough to work with him. He says that unless you claim the extraordinary, ordinary claims you. So welcome to existing on a whole new level, my friend. On to the show!
I just had the most extraordinary conversation with Julian Treasure. He's the author of the books Sound Business and How to be Heard. He is a highly-rated, international public speaker on business sound and personal communications skills, particularly conscious listening and powerful speaking.
His five TED Talks have been viewed over 80 million times and his latest is in the top ten TED Talks of all time. You'll be mesmerized by listening to him because he got such a beautiful sound of his voice, but more than that, the insights about communication, listening, and how to be heard will transform the person that you are and the way you show up. Not only in your intimate relationship but mostly in the world in general, with other people, with communicating to strangers, with communicating your business to the world.
There was so much valuable information that was packed into this interview that it will blow your mind.
Every once in awhile, you meet somebody that just feels like you’re sisters from another mother, or at least, best friends. My guest was so easy to talk to, I think the reason is that she’s genuine authentic, kind, and sweet. This conversation is going to blow your mind. It was inspiring to me and I just enjoyed it so much.
Jo Emerson is the International Executive Coach of the Year, and confidence and human behavior expert. She is also the author of Flying For Beginners available on Amazon. Her most important job is being a mom to her three daughters. After six years as a single mother, she met her soulmate, Terry, in late 2016 and they married in April. They are blissfully happy together.
Today’s conversation is how to find confidence by being true to yourself, connect to the authentic person that you are, and show up to the world in your true colors. I love that. I love that journey and I love it when people discover it and they’re not afraid to step up and be who they want to be in the world, not what the world thought they should be or told them they should be. If you are just a step away from shining your true colors, then stay tuned because this conversation will give you joy, happiness, and confidence in who you are. If you forgot how awesome you are, this is a reminder.
Today, we’re going to talk about a topic that is usually unspoken. It’s almost a taboo. People don’t talk about it a lot, but we all have issues with our parents. If you don’t, you’re amazing. You just won the lottery. But most of us have some issues- some more than others with our parents. In this episode, we’re going to talk about the troubled relationship between mothers and daughters. Mostly awesome, but there are some things that are always in the way. Some triggers from childhood, some unhealthy attachment. It happens. Your parents love you no matter what, you love them no matter what, and there is still some friction sometimes.
To discuss this topic and to shed some light on this topic, I invited Karen C.L. Anderson. She helps women take a compassionate look at the troubled relationships they have with their mothers and/or daughters and guide them to reveal patterns, heal shame, and transform legacies. She’s the author of Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters: A Guide for Separation, Liberation & Inspiration and The Difficult Mother-Daughter Relationship Journal: A Guide For Revealing & Healing Toxic Generational Patterns.
I hope this episode will help you clear your relationship with your mom or at least make it better. It doesn’t happen in a day, sometimes it takes a while, but eventually, when you take a compassionate look and you see beyond the childhood triggers, you can find a place in your heart to love them unconditionally and have a better relationship because they’re your family, they’re your blood and you need them. Everybody needs their parents. I hope this helps.
Today, we’re going to talk about how to feel more empowered, inspired, and secure in who you are because even when you’re successful, even when things are going well, sometimes there is this little voice in your head that can bring you down. I invited Derek Doepker, he’s a best-selling author of Break Through Your BS. He loves sharing practical strategies to overcome self-doubt, fears, and limiting beliefs.
Sometimes, it's hard for me to communicate what I do in the world. I can say I help women find self-love so they can attract their person and attract success. But it's so much deeper than that because what goes into that is also healing of trauma, dealing with self-esteem, and connecting to a persona that is stronger than you think.
But how can you share all that in one sentence or in the very quick elevator speech? To help with that, I invited Adria DeCorte. She helps women leaders clarify the message they're here to share, so they can reach the right audience. She's a TEDx speaker, host of The Unforgettable podcast, creator of the Messenger Archetypes, and has been featured on the Huffington Post and Fox Morning News. Are you ready to step into those messenger shoes and share your message with the world?
For this episode, I’ve decided to share my secret with you, a secret that I’ve kept for almost a year. Later on, you will understand why I kept it as a secret and why I didn’t really want to talk about it or share it.
But it’s time. I’ve received a gift from God, and I am ready to share that with you. I also think that it can help a lot of you with the idea of manifesting and understanding of what goes into manifestation and how the manifestation of what you want doesn’t always happen the way you want it to. Still, you can manifest your dreams. If you deeply connect with that, it will show up in your life. Not always exactly the way you want it, but it will happen for you.
I wanted to be a mother for a long time.Every time I saw a little kid or baby, I felt a deep longing in my heart, that desire for being a mother. Earlier in my 20s, it wasn’t there, but when the 30s hit, every time I saw a little baby or even a little puppy, I just felt like “Ugh. I really want it.” Knowing I have hormonal deficiencies and other issues, I was not an optimal candidate to get pregnant naturally. So, my husband and I decided that we would go and try IVF.
Today, we're going to talk about how to live a kick-ass life. Life coach, author, hellraiser, Andrea Owen is passionate about empowering women to value themselves and fiercely love who they are. She helps women let go of perfectionism, control, and isolation and choosing courage and confidence instead. She is amazing. This girl is on fire and you're going to get tons of value from listening to this episode. I'm sure it's going to inspire you to live your kick-ass life.
My husband Stephan just came back from a talk, and one of the speakers shared this statistic: “80% of men die married, and 80% of women die single.” Mindblowing. Most women relegate their financial management responsibilities to the men in their life, and that is a dangerous thing. Because what happens when the guy dies or leaves the relationship, and they have no clue how to manage their finances?

From poverty to a wealth warrior, Tamar Hermes has grown businesses and invested in real estate to reach financial independence. Now, she's on a mission to support other women to do the same. Tamar is a wonderful friend. She's also been my financial coach. I took her course, The Wealth Warrior, and she is extraordinary.
What fulfills you? What brings you joy? How can you love yourself more? How can you feel more fulfilled? What is fulfillment? Is it the money you make? Because some people live in mansions and are miserable. And there are some poor children on the streets of Calcutta in India who have hardly anything to eat, but are so happy.
So what is happiness? What is joy? And how can we bring ourselves to love ourselves a little bit more every day? I enjoyed this episode because I’ve interviewed many guests, and sometimes, I find this one person who's almost like a kindred spirit, who I feel very much in alignment with it. This was a refreshing conversation, where we bounced ideas off of each other, and it was very much in sync. I know that you're going to be very inspired.

When it comes to popular astrology, you’ve probably read that Scorpio’s are too intense and Cancers are super sensitive. And whether subconsciously or consciously, these stereotypes of your “sun sign” has probably influenced your dating decisions - like rationalizing that a guy didn’t work out because his Leo sign mean he was too self-centered.
But what if I told you that compatibility has nothing to do with those signs - in fact, it has everything to do with your moon sign, your date of birth, and the destiny which the universe has outlined for you. I say outlined, because even though you may have some sort of destiny, it’s up to you to make decisions and take actions that will lead you to the partner that was meant for you.
When coaching my relationship clients, I stress the importance of being active in your quest for love, not just waiting around for the stars to align. We have to put in the work and remember that life happens for us, not to us. To understand these concepts better, I am excited to have Carol Allen on my show today, a Vedic astrologer and relationship coach whose mission is to empower women to enjoy a truly out of this world love life.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably had to kiss one too many frogs in your life. I am grateful that I have found my soulmate, but it was not before I experienced some challenging, and sometimes painful, relationships.
When I did meet my future husband, it was at a time that I allowed myself to be vulnerable with the universe, to believe that he was out there waiting for me, and to trust my intuition on knowing he was the one. Your intuition is a powerful source of guidance in your life that can help you weed out all the frogs.
I find myself having to encourage my love coaching clients often, reminding them not to give up just because they have gone on a couple of bad dates. Don’t give up, and don’t settle, because I promise there is a small voice inside of you – your intuition – who is going to guide you to the right man, you just have to trust and listen! My guest today, Dr. LeslieBeth Wish, strongly believes in the power of intuition and her belief is backed by scientific research. Tune in today to learn how you can tap into this powerful source within you.
As a child, I was taught that being nice and polite would go a long way. And while having these values will certainly take you far in life, you may have noticed by now that we live in a man’s world - and as a woman, you have to be more than just ‘nice’ if you want to get ahead.
Women are living under societal pressures which dictate how we should behave, look, and live our lives. A lot of the messages which surround you as a women are infused with limiting beliefs on what you can accomplish in life - from how much money you can earn, the kinds of roles you can play in society, to how valuable you are based on your looks.
Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, a Pulitzer winning historian, famously wrote “Well behaved women seldom make history” - meaning, it’s the women who have shaken things up and been assertive of what they want in life - often at risk of being labeled a “bitch” - who have gone on to lead memorable lives. My guest today is one such memorable woman who was tired of being the nice girl, and started taking matters into her own hands to create her dream life. Dr. Lois Frankel joins me today to discuss why Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich - and why you should stop playing nice.
What do men really want? If you’re single or have recently been dating in today’s modern world, you have probably asked yourself this question as you deal with the seemingly ever present flakiness and lack of commitment that men seem to have.
Yet the real question that you should consider is, what do you want in a man? And once you figure that out, visualize it, and most importantly, believe that you deserve it, you’ll find that you will be able to surpass all the lame dating experiences as you realize to not take ‘rejection’ personally when they were never the right fit for you anyway.
I often tell my clients, you have to work on yourself internally to become the woman who is going to attract the man of her dreams. It’s not about changing yourself fundamentally, it’s more about changing your perception of the love you deserve by healing your past traumas. My guest today, Mark Rosenfeld, has gone from awkward virgin geek in high school, to stripper, to finally a world renowned relationship coach who shares today how you can make the right person yours.
Life happens for you, not to you. When things are not going your way, it can be comforting to take the easy way out and blame everything and everyone else for your problems and stress. And while there are people who will hurt you, or things that happen that are beyond your control, that just plainly seem so unfair, or cruel, these facts of life are always going to be there - it’s what you do about them that matters.
You owe it to yourself to have the self confidence and self love to make sure your needs are getting met. Regardless of the ups and downs of life, it really is up to you to roll with the punches and make the best out of your life as possible. It’s up to you to have the foresight to realize that there is a lesson in every hardship - it’s the gift with the bow on the bottom. You can’t see it yet, but if you are open to receiving the message, you’ll get it soon enough.
With all that being said, I know it’s not easy to develop mindfulness and self-awareness, which are the pathways to forgiving, and healing your life. Life will continue to happen, and the good news is, you are totally in control of how you handle what comes your way, the good and the bad. All it takes is a little training on how to do this. My guest today actually trains and coaches others on how to develop their personal well-being through mindfulness. She has an incredible life story of her own that you’ll surely find inspiration and might just be the key to start you own healing journey.
Being vulnerable can be risky - but wouldn’t you agree that it’s the risks in life that make life worth living? If you never venture into the unknown, if you let yourself be held back by fear, I bet there are many things in your life that will pass you buy, when they could have changed the course of your destiny forever.
Vulnerability exposes the most inner truths of ourselves and for that reason, many people equate vulnerability with weakness. But being vulnerable is actually a sign of bravery - you are risking the most fragile parts of yourself, knowing well that you could get hurt by rejection, shame, or ridicule, but you do it anyway. And at the end of the day, you want to live a life of no regrets, and not look back on what you didn't do, because you were too afraid.
Many of my clients are strong, independent women who have trouble with the idea of vulnerability when it comes to relationships. They are alpha females who have been hurt in the past, who feel that wearing their heart on their sleeve is putting their emotional well-being at risk. But it’s precisely this risk, that of being vulnerable, which is the only way you can forge a deep connection with your soulmate. My guest today, David Wood, built the largest coaching business on the web, and joins me today to share how his personal life path has inspired his innate ability to help people live an open life, with no regrets.
