It's easy to get stuck thinking that in order to help people you need more time, more money, more help yourself... But being kind doesn't need to cost anything that you don't already have. Perhaps you've heard the phrase: think globally, act locally. Well, we don't need to save the entire world or create a coalition of compassion; we can start with simple acts of kindness with the people we encounter in our daily lives. Kindness itself can be a spiritual practice. Join us with Suzie Abels, author of Kindness on a Budget, as we discuss simple ways to practice kindness and compassion with everyone around you, no matter where you find yourself in life.

No, this episode is not about nudity, but rather begs the question of what it means to be brave in the face of vulnerability and fear. Fear is a human trait known to us all, but the real question is what do we do with fear? Do we let it consume us? Stifle us? Or use it as the very fuel to propel us further. Join us with Emily Ann Peterson, musician, teacher, author, and host of the Bare Naked Bravery podcast, as we discuss what it means to be brave in the world today.

Do you struggle with money? While a lot of people talk about abundance, before you can change your relationship to money, you have to explore why you struggle with money in the first place. Do you have a basic financial literacy? How organized are you with your finances and what sorts of healthy financial habits do you have in place? Join us with Lindsay Sacks, as we discuss financial freedom and talk about multi-layered approaches to healing your relationship with money.

Lindsay Sacks left her corporate accounting job years ago to follow her passions and help people change their relationship to money and success, organize their finances, and gain financial freedom.
