About The Podcast
Today I am joined by Dr. Caroline Heldman, badass. Dr. Heldman is the unsung feminist hero. The Gloria Steinem of her generation. A political scientist, political correspondent and professor at Occidental, Dr. Heldman has dedicated her life to social justice causes and does so because of her own experience with sexual violence and systems of power. She has authored a number of books, is the lead researcher for the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media and can be seen in Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In, amongst others.
Today I am joined by Amber Lilyestrom and I cannot wait for you to hear this episode. It is full of soul and heart and I’m learning you can’t walk away from a conversation with Amber without feeling like you’ve changed for the better. She was recognized as one of the top sports marketing professionals in the nation and left her corporate career after a near-death experience that served as the catalyst for her to transform her life from the inside out. We are going to talk about that near-death experience during childbirth, and what Amber called “the space between motherhood and her death.” You are going to hang on to every word and I hope you click off of this episode a changed human being.
Today I am joined by entrepreneur Chelli Wolford, owner of Bloom, a co-working space for women. Aside from running a gorgeous space for risk-taking women to launch their businesses, Chelli also shared a letter to her younger self in my book, LORE. It is the one most asked about during my speaking engagements and we’ll tell you why. Chelli is pure heart and soul, a women’s advocate and the sister of recording artist Pitbull. In our time we talk about actualizing our side hustle by making leaps from uncomfortable jobs to the unpredictable life of an entrepreneur. We get deep in our feelings with advice to do the hard work and avoid the unintentional life. This is a grown up conversation and covers topics surrounding sexual violence and loss so fair warning for those who may be triggered.
Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 1: Conflict, Intimacy and Relationships with Dr. Melanie Ross Mills
My pilot episode is with Dr. Melanie Ross Mills, Life Strategist, Relationship & Friendship Expert, and licensed Temperament Therapist. Dr. Mel was in Las Vegas so we sat down in the sound studios at The Space LV to talk relationships in all their forms - partners, family or friends. We dug deep into conflict and intimacy, hashed out the difference between emotional vulnerability v emotional availability and talked love, significance and security. Dr. Mel shared her thoughts on relationships where one partner is growing and the other is not and we agreed purposeful relationships are where it is at.
