Shannon Crow, The Connected Yoga Teacher, on Social Impact and Podcasting

Shannon Crow from The Connected Yoga Teacher is with me on this episode to talk podcasting and social impact. Actually, she reached out to me originally to talk about impostor syndrome (one of my fave topics), so we cover that too!

Shannon Crow, The Connected Yoga Teacher Podcast, Podcast Envy Episode 033, on Social Impact

I LOVE what Shannon is doing with her podcast, and even more so with her community of yoga teachers, the hub of which is her Facebook Group.

In fact, you may or may not know that before podcasting, my primary work was teaching yoga and meditation. I even owned and operated my own studio in Chicago for FIVE years and ultimately had to close because I just couldn’t find a way to make the business profitable and sustainable with the resources I had available.

My experience and observation is that yoga is TOUGH business model, and most of us teachers get into it because we have a passion for the practice, and for helping other people live healthier, more fulfilling lives. We get VERY little business or entrepreneurial training or guidance and then we bust our butts, struggling to make ends meet while running round teaching classes OR we make it a side hustle while holding down a full-time job or assortment of part-time jobs.

Shannon saw this gap and decided to do something about it. She’s hoping that what she can do to create a support network and resources for yoga teachers to have more sustainable business practices will ripple out to help so many more people through the classes and sessions those teachers hold.

Shannon Crow is definitely a podcaster using this platform to make a positive social impact. Whether you’re into yoga or not, there’s a lot you can learn from her. Listen to the episode to find out how she does it!

A halloween gift for you!

This month, October 2018, over on my LinkedIn, I’m sharing podcasting tips, practices and fun all around a Halloween theme and I’m kicking it off with a Tarot Card spread for your Podcast Content Marketing Plan.

This is a nod to the nostalgic defining moment of my childhood when I won (or at least placed) in a costume contest at the public library for my gypsy fortune teller look. No tarot cards are NOT fortune telling but I didn’t know any better when I was 9!

So if YOU want to get the spread either to DIY with your own tarot or oracle deck OR you want me to do a 3-card reading for you and YOUR show, click the button below and drop your email there for me and you’ll get instructions and a super brief questionnaire in case you want me to pull cards for you.

066: Raise Your Vibration, Susan Chu: Crystals, Feng Shui and Changing Careers

“Fear has a tendency to hold us back… and when we free ourselves from our own prison then… we notice a lot more about opportunities, about door openings — we can actually walk across to the other side.” ~Susan Chu

 

Susan Chu is a holistic practitioner who works with people to move past fear, take better care of themselves, and find their passion for a more authentically aligned life. She uses crystals, feng shui and mindfulness for magical results in a totally grounded way.

I LOVE how she calls the impostor voice your “inner saboteur!”

Be sure to check out her Crystals for Your Health Facebook Group — it’s excellent for learning how to work with crystals!

About Susan

I’m Susan M. Chu. One of my biggest passions in life is living a feng shui life.

I was in corporate America for about 20 years, in the banking industry. I excelled in my jobs and made excellent money. But, somewhere along the way, I lost my feng shui values. I stopped living the feng shui life. Over time…

  • I was struggling, financially
  • My career stalled
  • I was in a dead end relationship
  • My health was deteriorating
  • And I couldn’t manifest any magical opportunities anymore

I was a total mess. I had hit my rock bottom. I took a long, hard look at myself and what came next was a total shocker to me. I quit my very cushy job. I didn’t quite bounce right back up, but when I did, I had rediscovered the magic in feng shui living. I have an unshakeable deep peace within myself; my inner child could not stop laughing when I rediscovered the feng shui way; I manifested so many helpful people that I can’t even recognize my life from when I quit my job; and I finally attained a quiet mind.

I stopped passing judgement on myself. The saboteur within me got a new job. Whenever I step off the feng shui path, it will lead me back.

There are a lot of people who accept life as being difficult. There are a lot of people who are conditioned to believe that you should struggle through life. I disagree. For me, life is about attaining inner peace and conquering life challenges. What I see is many people trying to find some semblance of peace in a very chaotic world.

It is so wonderful to sing to my favorite songs and not hear “Please, don’t sing. You can’t sing. from within me.

My clients include a wide variety of professionals: entrepreneurs, artists, expectant moms, corporate professionals, etc…. What they all have in common is they want to change their life, believe the Universe will work with them, and are ready to do whatever it takes. Our work together helps them attract the right relationships (mentors, teachers, and partners); inspires passion for their careers; and enlightens them to love their lives. It can do the same for you.

If you are ready to step into that life and commit to loving your life, I’d love to schedule a complimentary 15 minute call. Please email me at: info@susanmchu.com.

Feng shui living is a way of life. It embraces synchronicity with Heaven, peace within ourselves (man), and harmony with our environment (Earth). Many centuries of feng shui wisdom flows through me. I am here to share everything I know to transform your struggles into opportunities and to help you reach your dreams.

056: Affirm yourself, Kelly Covert, Inner Voice Coach & Host of In Her Voice Podcast

“One minute does not change who I am.” ~Kelly Covert (upon reflecting over the disappointment of missing her triathlon personal record by one minute.)

Everything counts…

I met Kelly Covert online through a podcast mentoring program with Elsie Escobar (episode 044) and then in person at 2017 Podcast Movement and I LOVE Kelly’s presence. She is affirming, clear and joyful. She is an incredible listener AND she totally gets my type A, overachiever, creative perfectionist personality. I knew immediately she needed to be here on the show, talking with you!

In this episode we talk about the true inner voice you want to listen to (i.e. NOT the impostor voice or inner mean girl), daily practices for cultivating your connection to that voice and your deepest desires, overcoming perfectionism and recognizing your own inherent worth outside of achievement and productivity.

“If you never do another thing, you are worthy right now.” ~Kelly Covert

050: Decide to create your own happiness, Katy Flatau, Mindful-U

“Sometimes you need to stop looking over the edge of the cliff and look around and notice ‘oh yeah, we’re all here together.’ There’s power in that feeling of community.” ~Katy Flatau

Career change and life balance coach Katy Flatau and I talk about how to plan for a career change EVEN IF you are successful, EVEN IF your job isn’t horrible, but when you feel there’s something missing. She shares her own journey from corporate sales job to entrepreneur, feeling like an impostor and how she corrects for that daily through community and connection. We also talk about money, becoming a coach and the nitty gritty of co-founding, partnering and then parting ways on Mindful-U.

043: Have your ice cream first, Ruth Humphreys

“If I start the day with my inner child playful activities, I’m a lot more productive, I’ve been able to entertain my inner child so I can later on get on with the ‘work’ and also I’m more joyful and then other things come from that as well.” ~Ruth Humphreys

Just hit “play” and start your day…

What did you LOVE to do as a child? Something that you could do all day and it would be as if time stood still…

Ruth Humphreys, former librarian, is a storyteller for children and a coach for grown-ups who want to find their playful mission in life through connection with your inner child. This phrase, inner child, typically would make me roll my eyes, but in this case, I’m inspired and energized by Ruth’s imaginative approach to re-discovering wonder!

“When children are playing, they’re processing emotions — they’re processing what’s going on… and as adults we’re the same… it’s very therapeutic.” ~Ruth Humphreys

040: All the things I am NOT

“I looked at everything I saw being done and asked: What else? What isn’t here? How could I do this differently? What is a way to approach this problem that only I can (or will?)” ~Andrea Klunder

Swimming my way out of the impostor cycle…

Last week I released a very fun, funny, insightful, inspiring interview with Jennifer Briney of Congressional Dish podcast and we both admitted to having imposter-y feelings independently of each other on the same day AT the same podcasting conference.

She was there to give a keynote about her brilliant listener supported funding model for her show in a month when her revenue had dipped to its lowest point in quite some time.

And I was pitched by her agent to interview her on my show in a month when my download numbers were abysmal b/c I basically hadn’t published an episode for 6 weeks.

She was thinking “Who am I to talk to all these people about getting listeners to fund your podcast?”

And I was thinking “Who am I to have a keynote speaker with thousands of followers on my dinky little show?”

The other day, I was teaching yoga to a group of my Kindergarten and pre-K students and one of the things that we do is toward the end, after they’ve gotten to run around in circles and make animals sounds and play crazy yoga games, we have quiet coloring time before our rest time (i.e. savasana.) I asked them to drawan animal of their choice playing however they would like and I took out some crayons to join them. 

I drew some water and a fish jumping out with a sunshine. And one kid said, “Why is that fish in the sky? Fish don’t fly.”  

And I said, “Oh, he’s jumping out of the water.”

Another kid said, “but a fish can’t stay out of water very long or it will die.”

And I said, “That’s true. But just like when you go swimming, if you go under water you hold your breath, a fish can hold it’s breath for just a moment when it jumps out and then breath again when it goes back under water.”

One kid said, “Yeah, and you can wear goggles under water so you can see.”

This seemed to satisfy them and so I drew a face under the water, to which one said, “Why is there a face under the water?”

I said, “Oh that’s me, swimming with goggles on. Doesn’t that look like me?” 

“No,” she said. You don’t even have a body. 

“I haven’t drawn it yet, “ I replied.

“And why is your mouth like that?” another one asked.

“I’m making a fish face.” I said.

“Why?”

“Because it’s fun!” I defended.

They considered my drawing skeptically for a moment, until one said. “That really doesn’t look like you and you should draw a bathing suit.” And they went back to drawing their own masterpieces. 

And I looked at my juvenile crayon drawing, thinking “Well I’m not an artist.” AND viscerally remembering the feeling in my cheeks of being ashamed and frustrated as a child when I couldn’t make my art look the way I wanted. Of fearing someone would laugh at what I made. 

AND I was also thinking, “Dang. Kindergarteners are mean!”

“Look at all those limiting beliefs and potentially missed opportunities I just created for myself. Simply by focusing on what I am not.” ~Andrea Klunder

037: Permission to stop

“I keep thinking I need to do more– That I need more clients. That I’m going to run out of money. That I need to keep pushing forward until I make it to… where exactly?” ~Andrea Klunder

Letting go of busy…

It has been a BUSY month filled with transitions and new things. 

Of course I knew it would be because our theme for the last few weeks both in The Creative Impostor Facebook Group and in the Chicago Women’s Creative Collective has been Creative Woo-Woo: mystical practices for your creative workflow

I’ve interviewed Intuitive Counselor and Self-Discovery Coach Charlotte Elea about tarot and oracle cards for developing your intuition and Spiritual Embodiment Teacher Monica Martin about using your body’s felt-sense to guide your decision making.

AND I’ve done informal live video interviews with both of them in TheCreative Impostor FB group AND with Naturopath & Holistic Healer Samantha Mant (who will be on the podcast in the coming months) on coordinating your creative cycles with the moon and with feminine cycle. 

Put all of these experiences together with the tarot readings I’ve been incorporating into my almost-daily meditation practice AND some very practical DEEP coaching I’ve been doing with the luminous podcasting guru Elsie Escobar as part of her new e-league mentoring program and…. whew!

“I’m getting all intuitive, introspective, one with the universe, aligned in my purpose – flow – flow – flow all OVER THE PLACE!” ~Andrea Klunder

It’s actually been so intense that I’m alternating between these bursts of manic creative insight where I can’t sleep and I’m up way late into the night — so late I hear the birds chirping in the pre-dawn darkness outside my window  And then these periods of deep sleep without an alarm clock, where I will sleep for 11 hours at a stretch.

And in between all of that are the client deadlines for projects new and old, the smattering of yoga and meditation classes I teach throughout the week, the orientations for the After School Matters podcasting program for high schoolers I’m creating and facilitating starting this summer, hosting and expanding the Chicago Women’s Creative Collective and producing this podcast.

Busy. 

Are you exhausted just listening to this? 

And this leads me back to my coaching with Elsie at the beginning of this month.

I asked her to help me figure out what to do next with The Creative Impostor, where I fit into the podcasting industry, how to leverage my unique gifts, skills and strengths for a sustainable purpose-driven business.

And here’s what she said to me first:

You have the ability to “become what is needed” in any situation— you have the solution for any problem.

BUT what do you want to do?

“I have everything I need. And now I have the luxury to let go of the hustle and spend some time focusing on what I want to do and create and who I want to be for a while.” ~Andrea Klunder

036: Transform the trauma, Monica Martin

“We are so in a reactive mode, in our heads, trying to make meaning… we don’t allow ourselves time just to slow down and notice what is happening right now.” ~Monica Martin

The process of becoming who we are…

Monica Martin is the woman you want with you whenever you’re feeling uncertain. Her presence and incredibly soothing voice always give me the feeling that everything is going to be okay — or even better than okay. AND in this interview Monica shares how to tap into and trust that grounding, connected energy within yourself through meditation, visualization, “felt-sense” experiencing in your body, process art and… boxing!

“Boxing has been one of THE biggest parts of my healing… it’s so important that, especially now, people find a way to express their emotions in a physical activity… because it helps you actually transmute the emotions and it helps you find your own way of expression.” ~Monica Martin

035: Impostor vs Intuition

“The impostor voice wants to protect you by keeping you small and safe. The intuitive voice wants to help you by elevating your platform to rise to the occasion. It may be risky. But it’s probably worth it.” ~Andrea Klunder

So when you have both the voice of your creative impostor AND the voice of your deepest intuition clamoring for attention in your brain, how on earth do you know who is saying what and who to listen to?

Well, you need mad tools, skills and support!

034: Step into your power with tarot, Charlotte Elea of Dream Intuition

“The power that I am craving, the leadership that I am craving externally to me — I am not going to find that in somebody else. I need to find that within myself.” ~Charlotte Elea, on intuitive leadership (and politics)

Remove the intimidation for yourself and transform it into an opportunity to play…

Charlotte Elea has been my tarot muse since January of 2017. Her playful approach to using tarot and oracle cards, as well as dreams and meditation, to learn to hear and trust your own intuition has really taken my practice, my teaching and my creative work in a new direction. It’s fun AND it’s deep.

“The Impostor says, ‘Who am I to do this?’ And then my radical, embodied, authentic, Self says, “Who AREN’T you to do this? You HAVE to do this. This is the time.” ~Charlotte Elea
