Forging_a_Way_for_Yourself_&_Your_Art_with_Choreographer_Karin_Stevens_(1) (1).png

Today we get to have a chat with painter and poet, David Lesinski. Ever since Marisa Molina nominated him for the show, I've had my eye on how he's showing up in the world for a several weeks now and I can tell you that today's conversation has the potential to be a hugely life-changing for you, especially if you're an artist. I'm really excited about this one.

059: Censorship, Invincible Truth & Mentorship with Singer-Songwriter Jan Krist

Censorship,_Invincible_Truth_&_Mentorship_with_Singer-Songwriter_Jan_Krist.png

Jan Krist is a phenomenal artist. She's a force to be reckoned with and I am so proud to call her my mentor. I met Jan while I was at my post-diagnosis Artist Residency in the mountains of Leavenworth, WA.

Today's recording occurred on the last day of a songwriter's retreat. I snagged her for a quick podcast recording and so I apologize for our energy levels in this conversation. Ha! We were both exhausted but I think that's what makes this episode so raw and real.

We talked about mentorship,...

057: How to Be Wrong & Stay Listening with Andy Zook

How_to_Be_Wrong_and_Stay_Listening_with_Andy_Zook.png

Today we have the extreme pleasure of talking with Andy Zook of the band "Bears & Other Carnivores." Andy and I met because our mutual friend (who is also a member of the Bare Naked Bravery community) invited both Andy and I to perform a couple songs for a little backyard garden concert several weeks back. While I was *totally* enjoying Andy's songs, Tos, our mutual friend, pulled me aside and said "You've GOT to have Andy on Bare Naked Bravery. Your podcast and his podcast are two I...

055: How to Find Your Creative Intuition with Food - Marisa Molina

How_to_Find_Your_Creative_Intuition_with_Food.png

This episode is near and dear to my heart. I know it's kind of weird to talk about your relationship to food on a bravery podcast for creatives, but here we are. If you've listened to the show for awhile, you've probably already heard me mention my own story with an eating disorder. I spent years and years NOT listening to my intuition and then years and years re-teaching myself all about it.  As we explain later, there's actually a LOT in this intersection of topics of bravery, food,...

ps027: How to Get More Results From Less Effort

Ho_to_Get_More_Results_from_Less_Effort-_EmilyAnnPeterson.com.png.png

Over the last couple weeks I've seen this happen a lot: my creative friend will go on vacation, work maybe 1 hour everyday while away only to return to a super hugely financially profitable week! Why does this happen?! And how have I been able to be soooo productive? It's allll about the 80/20 Pareto Principle. 80% of the results come from 20% of the effort. That's what we're talking about today on this week's peep show mini episode!

When cancer strikes.png

Okay guys get ready for a really intimate conversation this week. Today we have the privilege of hearing a really tender side of Holli Margell's experience as a photographer and specifically as a daughter of someone who died from breast cancer.

A side note: Holli and I don't talk about this really in the episode, but I know it's really timely to mention that providing places for women to get cancer screenings and regular checkups with a doctor is SO important. I am an avid supporter of...

051: Curiosity & Its Role in The Art of Authenticity with LAURA COE

Curiosity & Its Role in the Art of Authenticity.png

Let's talk about curiosity today. It plays such a HUGE role in our bravery (both the big and small kinds.) Someone estranged from their own curiosity, I've noticed, end up feeling trapped and victimized by their own situation. Regaining your sense of curiosity is a huge help for those moments of "Why is this happening to me!?"

This is why I'm so pleased to introduce you to Laura Coe is a life coach and an author of the book "Emotional Obesity" AND she's host of the podcast "Art of...
