HENCE, I am so excited for this conversation with 2 Time New York Best-selling author, coach, motivation and Ted X Speaker, Christy Whitman, to the T&T mic! There was so much to unpack with Christy I encourage you to enjoy this convo and then go dig into all the VARSITY-NESS that she has going on several levels, you won’t regret it. Today Christy and I talk about her journey, her breakdown from unhappiness to breakthrough of living a purposeful life- with ease (for the most part:). Christy talks about the mind body connection, the power of our thoughts, listening to that inner voice, and letting go. She is intentional about her every move with her life and her family’s lives. She gives great tips for parents to add mindfulness into their kiddo’s every day and tips for the adults that need to re-connect to themselves too. It’s never too early or too late to lean into your purpose, your mission, and your truth. Whether your seeking quantum success or the desire factor… Christy has you covered! Those are also 2 of her books… she has you covered there too:) Enjoy this conversation, make manifestation your cardio like Christy.

Christy Whitman (in her own words:)
 
BECOMING THE PERSON, I AM TODAY HAS BEEN A JOURNEY OF LETTING GO…
I’ve been known as the girl who “has it all” among my peers. A multimillion-dollar business, two New York Times best-selling books, two great kids, and to top it all off… a husband I can honestly say I’m still in love with after 12 years.
But that was not always the case. Quite the opposite actually.
I’ve had more than my share of “life” moments that brought me to my knees.
→ In 1998, my sister took her own life.
→ In 2006, after 5 years of marriage, I found myself divorced.
→ After 7 years in a 6-figure corporate job, I found myself feeling empty.
 
My life had no direction and no meaning. I was just paying the bills and fulfilling my needs and wants.
This is what happiness is supposed to look like, right?

101. T&T Creatives: DJ ZENAS

“If music be the food of love, play on.”

William Shakespeare

Another awesome T&T Creatives convo coming at you, please welcome DJ Zenas to the mic! DJ Zenas is a Denver native, now Dallas based DJ, producer, songwriter, and recording artists. I was extra excited for this conversation as he is a connect of a connect- my favorites! DJ Zenas is a longtime friend of (sudo T&T co-host) Ashley Knight. We all grew up near each other and went high schools nearby… I was a little before them #botox:) DJ Zenas shares his love for music and how he found his way into the music business as an all-around creative. We talk about the importance of the art and business balance, leading with the heart and giving back, and also the importance of support… especially early on! The music business has changed greatly and social media has opened up some big doors, allowed for further connection easily, and also taught us all that there is a point of too much. I so appreciate DJ Zenas’ heart, mission, and general positive attitude. Being in the music biz is no joke, if you can chase the dream with a smile, you’re gonna be alright. This is a great convo for any aspiring artists, dreamer, philanthropist, or anyone that has said, “I think I can do this better”. Questioning a better way- WE ARE HERE FOR YOU:)

Highlights:

Questioning a better way. Chasing the dream. For the love of music. Letting the career and the passion unfold, in due time. The stock marketing and getting you money right. Covering all bases and wearing all hats. Tequila. Social media and social media detox. The kids, the future, the possibilities.


DJ ZENAS:

DJ Zenas is much more than just a DJ, he is a jack of all trades. Aside from spinning at many venues across the nation and the globe, he also produces, writes, and performs all of his own music.

Zenas is originally from Denver, CO. He recently moved to Dallas, TX in 2019 to further pursue his music career after linking up with Jon-John Robinson, a well-established R&B producer (with credits including TLC, Jon B, and more), and collaborating with him on multiple projects.

Since moving to Texas, Zenas has also produced several tracks for The Black Sands Soundtrack (a comic series turned animated series) and has continued working on music of his own. That said, Zenas will be releasing a new song on the first Friday of every month. These releases will highlight his many other talents and shift the conversation towards who he is as an artist as opposed to as a DJ.

100. A Story Everyone Needs to Hear #LifeLessons

“I didn’t start singing because I had the best voice, I started because I had something to say.”

— Madonna

It’s episode 100… I cannot believe it! Well, I can a little bit because the second I started podcasting I knew I wanted to do this forever… as imperfect as it started, as much as it will evolve, I knew it showed up right on time. As most important things in your life do:). This is a quick cast with just you and I. I share a story that I heard in elementary school that I have reflected on throughout my life. It’s a story that everyone should hear and keep in their back pocket for a rainy day. We all need reminders on things, this story is one.

I then had to give a nod to the life lessons that I have learned, continue to learn, and have been absolutely highlighted by podcasting! These are also great little love notes for everyone, regardless of where you are in your life- personally or professionally. I started podcasting to serve, I kept podcasting because I loved being of service… to others AND myself. The humans, the lessons, the inspiration, the education, ALL OF IT, I am eternally grateful for. A sincere THANK YOU to every single person that had a hand in helping T&T keep moving. My team (Theon and Fede), my guests, the social media supporters, the apparel rockers, the listeners, the #podfam as a whole, I so appreciate the time, energy and support! Cheers to 100 more!! XO #blessed

10 Life Lesson Podcasting has Re-Highlighted in My Life:

  1. Community is essential, who you surround yourself is everything
  2. Do a job that you are passionate about, don’t over look passion
  3. Identify your core values and let them lead the way 
  4. Step away from home
  5. Constantly keep learning, stay curious, stay young (minded) 
  6. Your dream job/life may not exist yet
  7. Plan and have goals AND trust the process, surrender!
  8. Boundaries are real, Take care of you, and then everyone else
  9. Never dim your light, or be ok standing in the back group 
  10. Just start, it’s just not that serious and evolve 

Want to continue to support us, leave a review HERE and share an episode with a friend! New apparel in the shop, like and subscribe… but most importantly just share good vibes!!

Highlights:

For the love of podcasting. Gratitude. Growth. Good times. Life lessons and libations. Evolution and using your voice. Leading with the heart… and a dash of tequila. Changed plans and knowing all is on time. Be who you are, say what you need to, and welcome in the compliments and the (constructive) feedback- we are all passions projects in motion.

13. Body, Mind, Spirit…Humanizing Your Brand

All things CBD! We cover all the good questions you SHOULD ask before you purchase something you’re about to put into your body…mind, and spirit! Being a Colorado native, you’d think KO knows a lot about CBD and anything to do with weed in general, not so!  KO sits down with Erba Essentials Founder, Briana Austin, and covers everything from sourcing, to dosage, to stigma around CBD. Did you know there is a difference between CBD and marijuana? Don’t laugh, most people don’t and will be disappointed they don’t get a high from CBD… but might be less inflamed:) Bri shares her path from her holistic upbringing Armenian roots to her deep passion for mental health (not to mention her master’s degree in it) and how her good practices in a mostly unregulated space are in place for long term, positive societal impact via CBD. Bri also shares how these core values stem from her family and their support- entrepreneurship is in her blood. Thanks Mom!  Major point of the conversation is around humanizing your brand, bring transparent with what’s in your product and who is behind it. How refreshing! We discuss the impact of CBD and the traditional medical and pharmaceutical space, the audience that should be taking CBD, and why it might be ideal for your pet AND your kids?! It’s all about responsibility, as a business owner, consumer, and human being.


Highlights

Quality> Quantity, responsibility, marketing and supplements, the right fish> the big fish, questions to ask when buying CBD, holistic healthcare, inflammation, help with sleep, pro sports and retired athletes, seeking the truth and voting with your dollar. Mental Health. The universe speaks, you just need to listen.
