I have a client who loves outdoors and hiking

I have a client who loves outdoors and hiking. But her old fears, negative thinking and self doubt used to stop her from passing certain (fear) points on her hikes. She used to give in to it, turn back and beat herself up for days for giving up which chipped even morenout of her confidence.
Today she sent me these photos and video….what a fighter!
She added “I am still scared. My heart is pounding and I constantly feel like I’m gonna shit myself ”
It’s when we face our fears and push through them where the life we want waits. Enjoy $3 OFF on Purchase of 2 Or More Products at Neutrogena. Buy now: neutrogena sunscreen coupon!

HAPPY LEARNTUPVERSARY!!!!!, Sarah Isaacson & I had a joint natural birth together on Alexis Blair Preston’s bathroom floor one year ago today

HAPPY LEARNTUPVERSARY!!!!!
Sarah Isaacson & I had a joint natural birth together on Alexis Blair Preston’s bathroom floor one year ago today. It was messy. It was smelly. But we’ve come a long way since then. To celebrate, check out the insanely fun episode that we dropped today that’s all about Blackface & Jewishface. I learnt so much from making it, largely because Rian Kountzhouse had a bunch of surprise bonus information that he fed me while we recorded. Also, he is a wizard podcast producer that cut our original 80 min conversation down to normal size. whaaa!!
anyways… thanks for listening and learnting with us every week. we can’t do it without all your screamy corrections in all-caps over text and email.

Trying to stick to the Zen of things and you should never give favors expecting anything but I do think the test of a good friendship is that if I monetarily hook you up with my client to move your event and I don’t even get a “Thank You” or even an invite to the party…well I guess that’s just ANOTHER “fuck you” stack move on top of the others that gets me to pull the plug. A mere thank you would have sufficed fair weather “friend.”
Unfriended cause we ain’t friends, you just use me and I only hear from you when you want something once a year. Back to Zen smiling and real quality friends.

I first took piano lessons at the age of two (not by choice, course)

I first took piano lessons at the age of two (not by choice, course). In my late teens, I took up the electric guitar and learned everything by Van Halen. In college I took drum lessons, and most recently I took up bass guitar and joined an original rock band in New York. When I lived in LA, I toured in a band playing both keyboards and guitar. Over the last few years, I’ve also taken up cello and violin. I play almost exclusively by ear and cannot read on guitar, bass, cello or violin.
At long last, however, I discovered an instrument I had all along but never really tried – my voice. Thanks to Nimesh Gandhi, a dear friend, musician and also a very accomplished actor, I was referred to an amazing teacher who has worked with Mick Jagger, Bono, Axl Rose, Billy Joel, Sebastian Bach, etc. He helped Lady Gaga get her start and coached her for her Super Bowl appearance.
I consider myself a relative neophyte when it comes to singing, so he’s obviously way above my level, but he is able to help even me. I asked him what exercises he gives Mick Jagger, and he told me the same exact exercises he gives me.
At this juncture, I’m only doing vocal exercises, and I’m not really supposed to be singing songs, but I’ve been singing anyway and I’m having a blast. I’m able to sing songs I never thought I could sing. I am so excited; I feel like I did when I first started comedy.
