Being Boss

No entrepreneurial topic gets left behind in this podcast co-hosted by successful independent business owners, Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon.

Why We Tune In: So many reasons why! We like this duo A LOT. Their conversations sound a bit like ours particularly when it comes to branding, creative work/life balance, and how to own and value your ‘Being Boss’ self - and so much more. No matter where you are in your creative journey, you will find their insights helpful, and in some instances, applicable in a few or more areas of your life.

Why We Tune In: Patsy is a longtime fan of Jonathan’s work and his exploration around “what it means to live a good life.” Jonathan is an outstanding facilitator of deep conversations and invites listeners to become curious about how they're choosing to live this human experience through listening to the extraordinary stories of others who have followed their hearts, challenged conventionality, and busted through the barriers of societal projections and self-limiting beliefs.

The Unbecoming Podcast

In this podcast, host Phoebe Mroczek, explores the question, “what if the journey wasn't actually about becoming anything? what if it is actually about unbecoming everything we're taught we should be to step into who we truly are?” Phoebe delivers weekly honest conversations, meaningful insights and loads of fun.

Why We Tune In: As one listener wrote, "Unbecoming is part permission slip and part reminder to shed anything that you're not, to become who you truly are." Phoebe’s lens on the world, mirrors our own, as we also believe that when we approach building our businesses (and lives) as a reflection of who we are (in alignment with our values and how we desire to feel), more meaning, fulfillment, and connectivity is possible with the people we most want to serve.

Woke & Wired

Woke & Wired is a new conversation about expanded consciousness and entrepreneurship in the digital age. How can we harness the infinite possibilities of today’s digital world to create success, fulfillment and positive impact? And can our personal spiritual practice contribute to it?

Created by New York-based entrepreneur Ksenia Avdulova, this podcast was born out of a ten-year exploration of the possibility of living a spiritually rich life while using the Internet – specifically, social media – to create a life of freedom, connection, creative expression, and abundance.

Why We Tune In: In a world of digital overwhelmingness, this podcast puts much-needed perspective on what it means to live and do business from a place of consciousness and awareness. The conversations are open and honest, and a reminder that we are not alone in our daily challenges.
