This week, Meadow interviews Laura on her creative process. How does she decide what to work on? What would she do if she didn't have to make money? How does she know what needs to be a book, or a course, or a talk, or nothing at all? Is there a muse, or is it more practical? If you're someone who's curious about creativity, this is for you.
This week, we explore the Vedic concept of "Support of Nature" and how we can always tune into this knowing, elemental force as a guide and powerful feedback mechanism for decision-making and navigation through life. We walk through Meadow's current process of book writing and how this concept is playing out for her in real-time.
Money is one of those hazy, scary, and often shameful topics for a lot of people. But so much of the confusion is about seeing it the wrong way. This episode will help you get more clarity and confidence in how you spend your cash and how you think about spending overall.
This week, we talk about our favorite teachers: what they mean to us, why we love them, and what we go to them and their work to find.
"Tie the dog to the damn tree" is some advice Laura heard a few years ago and in the past month, as things started to fall apart, she realized she needed to listen. This week we talk about the anxiety and problems that ensue when we can't tell the difference between what's urgent and important, how to learn to discern between the two, and what to do.
What if you consciously committed to failure and rejection? This week we share some of our own big failures (past and current), how to actually tell if you’re failing (because sometimes it’s not obvious!), and the difference between failing smart and failing, well, dumb.
This week, we get the full backstory on how Meadow came to do the work she does. She talks about the first company she owned, working for Martha Beck, being on Oprah, digging herself out of a half-million in debt, and more.
This week, we get the full backstory on how Laura came to do the work she does. She talks about what she did for work in the fifteen years before she quit her job in 2016, how and when and why she started podcasting and blogging, what led up to the moment she quit, making big leaps, the angels along the way, and more.
Not the typical Spiritualish episode, this week we work out a question in real time. What is this elusive myth of balance? Work-life balance. Love-work balance. Family-work-love-life-home balance. Anything-balance. Is it possible? Is it even desirable?
One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves in this life is: how much is enough? In our home, our relationships, money, work, success, our belongings, what is the value of going bigger, and what are the costs? This week, we talk about how we've been wrestling with this question in our own lives and the surprising contrasts in our desires.
Alt. episode title: "Examine What You Tolerate". This week, we recount times when we've told ourselves "It's not that bad" when in reality, it was that bad--and actually a lot worse. Why do we do that? What's the price? And how can you be onto yourself before you dig yourself into a too-deep hole?
“Philip Morris just wanted your lungs; the App Store wants your soul.” - Bill Maher.
This week, we explore the concept of Digital Minimalism, as described in Cal Newport's new book of the same title, the significant changes we've both made in response, the early results we've seen, as well as some of the open questions and fears we each have. This isn't about hating on tech (we love it!) but rather understanding the real impact of how we are now "connected", making choices based on what you value most, crushing some of the myths of being an online entrepreneur and "needing" social media, and deciding how you really want to spend your life.
As a culture, we tend to glorify the idea of chasing your passion. We've all heard the adage, "Find something you love and you'll never work another day in your life." What we don't hear about all that often, though, is the real price of giving a shit about your work.
This week, we answer a letter from "Basic Millennial." He's at a crossroads, between jobs, trying to figure out how he can do something he really loves and finds meaning in, while also being a breadwinner.
Ahhh, Impostor Syndrome. The hidden affliction of... maybe, everyone? We break it down, talk about when we've felt it, why, how it's stopped us from moving forward, and how you can work with it so it stops stopping you.
Is there a conversation you've been having for waaaaay too long? (There is, we promise.) This week, we talk about the conversations we want to stop having, and what happens when you get stuck in a loop without realizing it.
This week, we recap what happened during a girls weekend in Big Sur together. Highlights include Murder Mountain, Marie Kondo, 67 pounds of coffee, and collage making (#nerdalert). But not just any collage. We did what Meadow teaches as part of her course, The Worthy Project--a collage that drastically upended her life the first time she did it. It's a specific formula and we'll give you a fly-on-the-wall view of how we constructed ours, how it works, and how you can build your own worthy backbone.
