#020 – Staying Fueled Through Personal Projects with Stacey Ilyse

Did you know that I almost had a co-host? I did! I listened to my first few episodes in April 2017 and thought, ‘Man, I am BORING. I think I’d drown myself out.’ So, I wanted a co-host to breathe some life into my serious, all-business side and immediately Stacey Ilyse came to mind. Our […]

Using Photographs in Healing After Loss / Grief

#019 – A Story on Photographs + Healing After Sudden Loss with Brittni Schroeder

It was after 11 p.m., when I should’ve been sleeping, but instead I laid there, mindlessly scrolling Instagram as I was jolted into full focus on a stranger’s feed. I was so captivated and moved by her shares, that I got back up and wrote out about 20 questions for Brittni BEFORE even inviting her to […]
