“Self-care is not selfish. It is the foundation for serving others.” If this was the only thing I knew about Kim Maravich I could have based this entire podcast on this one point, but she also helped me find grace in my New Year’s Resolutions being completely derailed unexpectedly last month. These two things are enough to have you dive into this podcast headfirst and without hesitation. Come on in, the water is glorious! If that isn’t enough for you, we also talked about Kim’s latest book, 360 Health, Your Guide to Cancer Prevention, Healing Foods, and Total Body Wellness which proves that cancer can be avoided by forming some good habits are your food and well-being. Join us inside for this special treat with Kim!
Who Am I? What Do I Want? How Do I Get It? Christine Hassler knows what it’s like to answer these questions, find answers, then ask these questions again to continue our journey’s on what she calls “Our spiritual beings that are having a human experience”. We are human which means that our human selves are going to make mistakes and trip up now and again. But each time we go through having a “breakdown to get to our breakthrough’s” we add more tools to our toolbox that put us on the path to building our better selves. This interview is nothing short of inspiring and I can’t wait for you to hear it and find one thing that will help you in your journey towards your dreams.
Potato Love! I have always loved potatoes. I’ve even read about a few people who have experimented with a mono-food diet for 30 days and even a year. I’ve read about marathoners eating nothing but potatoes, but Jeannine Elder is the first person I got to visit with one-on-one and learn her “why” behind her system called “The Potato Reset”. I am so convinced it can work that I’m trying it myself as this podcast airs! From an incredible back story of bad health and bad relationships (including the one with herself) to this HUGE following of potato lovers and Jeannine’s new book/cookbook called the Potato Reset, she is a YouTube sensation at “Potato Wisdom” and gives us a special insight to why it works here on The Lemonade Stand.
Goal Setting is a beautiful, messy, frustrating, sometimes overwhelming, but totally fun thing to do. Goals in our heads rarely get accomplished. Goals written down? Way higher potential of coming true…but goals that are written down and throw in an accountability partner? 90% chance of coming true! Listen in to my report of last year’s goal-setting and what I decided to do different in 2018. Wishing you health, happiness, fun and success in 2018! Let’s Rock This!
Merry Christmas, Lemonaders! No interview today, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging on such a special holiday, so today I’m simply reading you a Christmas Story to enjoy by yourself or with your family and friends. Have a lovely holiday and see you next week!
Experts in financial independence, early retirement, and debt pay-off…these millennials are well-versed in the art of making (and keeping) money. 2018 has me focusing on financial matters and turning Lauri’s Lemonade Stand from a philanthropic stand into a money-making venture.

Deep self-care can mean different things for different women, but Jamie’s Self-Care Manifesto is one of the most complete descriptions I’ve seen out there that has me screaming from the rooftops that YOU can accomplish it! Imagine…expressing yourself completely, showing your wild side, talking to yourself with kindness and compassion, doing more of what makes you happy and less of what doesn’t. Don’t just dream about it…make it a reality! Jamie offers tips that you can put into practice immediately, but I guarantee you’ll be begging for more by the time you get to the end of this podcast interview.

If I could get a t-shirt made that says “SADIE NARDINI IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL” I would wear it often. And because she has just moved to Southern California (found out the night before this interview) I’m thinking we will have to find some time to get together, karaoke, hit the piano bar in Santa Barbara that we talk about here, and grab some fries from Veggie Grill for the perfect girlfriend date! Sadie has given me a new perspective on yoga that will never be the same and I’m betting the same thing will happen for you once you learn all about her. She is kind, creative, on a mission, fierce, fun, and deeply generous. (She is also a rock and roll star, but if you want to learn more you have to listen in!)

Michelle has learned through struggles to trust her intuition and find gratitude in her daily living.

Strong is the New Pretty is the perfect mantra for all of us! It also happens to be the title of Kate’s new book that features girls in their natural habitats doing things they love that are silly, loud, messy, fearless, independent, confident and fierce. Kate T Parker and her photography have taken this notion and put it into art form…a tangible way for us to look at and feel the gamut of emotions from playfulness and outright fun to a sense of pride and creativity. I would recommend this book for women of any age and would definitely use it to gift towards a graduating Senior or just a girlfriend who might be having a hard time in their life to remind them of their strength and power. This episode deep dives into how Kate got into photography in the first place to the culmination of this incredible book. You’re gonna love today’s episode!
