 Ep 169 - The Me First Coaching Trap | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 00:12:34

This week I want to share with you a common trap we can get into when we've done our own self-coaching work. Coaching is amazing, and as we start to feel better and better in our lives, we can miss the big picture. The big picture ISN'T to just keep feeling better and better. Listen this week as I share what this trap might look like and what's available to us beyond the me-first mentality.

You know when you did that thing and then you were SO ANNOYED that you did it?

Today I'm going to share with you something way more effective than fighting your urges, whether it's to eat something that isn't good for you, snap at your husband, say that bit of lashon hara, or go on a Target spending spree.  Want to get coaching to apply this work to your life?

 Ep 165 - Keeping Your Marriage Strong Over Yom Tov with Devora from Adai Ad | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:08:49

Hi my friends. I did a webinar about a week ago with. Devra from Adai Ad, and I wasn't planning on sending it to the podcast, but I heard back from so many people that it made such a huge difference. That it was exactly the kinds of things that they're worrying about dealing with, struggling with over Yom Tov spending Yom Tov with family, especially if you have young children. But even if not, managing those dynamics between your husband and your family, or his family, and you and their family and all the different things. Right. Devora had some really phenomenal advice, and of course I'm bringing all the coaching and, um, mindset work and typical relationship things in the whole newlywed experience. So I asked if it would be okay for me to repost this over here on the podcast. She said yes, because she's awesome and I'm sharing it over here with you. I also wanna let you know that if you're hearing any of this and thinking, okay, but. It sounds really good. I'm not exactly sure how to apply it to my situation or my family, or you know, how we're dealing with things. We will be working on relationships for the entire month of October. We even have one call during chol hamoed and there will be written coaching. So if you know that you're gonna be needing some support, I am here to support you during that time, and I wanna really, really encourage you to make this the time that you go ahead and join How To Glow Today, because once you're inside, you're gonna have access to the tools that are gonna get you up and running, and you'll be able to get live coaching with me and written coaching. So anytime you have a question, you can just send it in and it'll get back to you within a couple days. Sometimes even the same day. All right, so this is the way that I have to support you. I know it's making a huge difference for the women that are inside the program, and I really want to be able to help you as well. So you just go to You'll be able to sign up immediately and get started on those courses. So by the time you get to the next call, which we have calls every single week, you'll be ready to go. You'll understand the tools that we use. Everything is made to be really short and simple. So, You're not sitting there watching hours and hours of classes. Nobody has time for that right now, but you could listen while you're doing your cooking or packing, right? Be ready to get and get some coaching so we can just, let's just fix whatever these issues are so you don't have to be carrying them from year to year. Wouldn't that be amazing? All right, so that is my offer to you, to come inside and join us for October and work on relationships. I will teach you a completely different way to approach relationships. It is not about communication. That will be enough to just show you that it is not what you've heard before , and it is such a massive relief, and it allows you to really appreciate people that you think right now you will never be able to really appreciate. In the meantime, I hope you love this conversation with Devora from Adai Ad 

 Ep. 164 - How to Think Like a Life Coach | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 00:27:36

My job as your coach is to help you become an expert in using your brain. Your unique brain, with its individual quirks, yes. But our brains are so much more similar than they are different. Here are some of the things brains do: Interpret facts and think it’s reality Focus on what other people are doing and lose self-awareness Take ourselves really literally (when I think “I can’t do this,” my brain believes me and responds accordingly) Check out this week’s episode to learn my favorite tools that I use and teach to help us all be experts in using our brains to create the lives we want. And if you're ready to take this work further, visit and join the program to get live coaching and work directly with me on mastering your brain and improving your life.

 Ep. 158 - Baseline Self Care - Summer Series Replay | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 00:24:44

One of my favorite coaching tools that I developed working with newlyweds is the idea of Baseline Self Care. This not your typical conversation about self care. This is not just about adding what you enjoy into your schedule. This is about understanding that you function on different levels--and the most critical is when you are functioning below BASELINE.  You know the feeling after pulling an all-nighter? Like you absolutely know you shouldn't make any major decisions? That's called being below baseline. It's so critical to know what your baseline is because you'll know a) not to engage in trying to fix anything right now b) not to evaluate yourself, your husband, or your relationship right now c) not to take any of your thoughts seriously Our goal is to get WAY ABOVE baseline--not to get *just* above it. But our response to being below baseline is like a Code Red. We drop everything, including our judgments, until we are back above baseline. Take this work further with us inside of How to Glow, the online coaching membership for married Jewish women. Be Impactful Podcast on Apple Podcasts and Spotify

It's crazy what a 180 we need to go through to go from dating to marriage.  Dating: "Can this guy make me happy?" Marriage: "It's not his job to make me happy... I make MYSELF happy!"

Check out this week's replay for my two episodes all about the tool of Staying In Your Lane. It's one of the best things you can do for your marriage and your own happiness.
