  • In-Between: Financial Wellness w/ Emilie Dayan Hill

    Welcome to the  Women’s Wellness Series! This week’s episode starts things off strong. Please welcome my new friend, financial queen, Emilie Dayan Hill. Emilie is a high net worth money manager here in Atlanta, GA. With her experience in the financial industry, Emilie created Finance That Feels. In its current state, Finance That Feels is a monthly publication on Substack that’s about making money more meaningful in our lives. More specifically, Emilie believes in Financial Wellness, and wants women everywhere to feel empowered with their money. In today’s episode, we’re talking about:
    • What is Financial Success versus Financial Wellness?
    • Finance Industry – why does it feel like women aren’t invited? Here’s a hint, statistically speaking, we’re not. Emilie breaks that down more and explains how the industry tends to serve men.
    • Money Wellness practices – monthly check-in; how that can break down intimidation towards taking control of your finances.
    • Growth mindset versus a scarcity mindset – how can you foster a healthy growth mindset when it comes to your finances.
    • Money Scripts – Money personalities we’ve adapted from our past and how we were raised; Emilie breaks down  the four different scripts, what they mean, and how we can work on our own.
    • How to cultivate Financial Wellness and find “enough.”

  • In-Between: What’s it like to be Introverted w/ Jay & Steph from Stay Introverted

    We've all heard the word introvert, but what exactly does that mean? Jay and Steph from the Stay Introverted podcast join me on this week's In-Between and answer that very question and also explain how two introverts started a podcast. 

    In this week's episode, the three of us talk about:

    • What is an introvert? What does it mean to be introverted? 
    • Misconceptions and unfair stereotypes about introverted individuals
    • Differences between introverts and extroverts and how they play off each other 
    • Social dynamics and personal relationships between introverts and extroverts
    • How the pandemic highlighted the introverted community
    • What your introverted friends want you to know 


    As an extrovert myself, I learned SO much from Jay and Steph about being introverted. Heck, this conversations even made me question myself – am I fully extroverted? Another question, has my extroversion affected my introverted husband? **laughs nervously**

    I also joined Jay and Steph on their podcast, so be sure to check that out too!

  • In-Between: Butterfly Years & Parenting Advice with Momma Cindy

    After a year and a half, I FINALLY brought on the myth, the legend, my mother,  Cindy Cheney! We cover a lot of ground in this week's in-between, from getting to know my mother and our relationship,  some pretty sound parenting advice, if I say so myself, and next year being our Butterfly Year. Momma Cindy has always represented what's good in the world, and I believe I wouldn't be doing this career if it weren't for her. 

    In this week's episode: 

    • Get to meet my mom and better understand our relationship
    • What it was like growing up with a single, handicap mother
    • The core pillars that defined her parenting, and her advice to other parents, soon-to-be parents, and the "one day" parents (trust me, I turned out pretty good, so she must have something right)
    • What's a butterfly year and why 2024 is ours
    • My mom's big time physical transformation
    • Tapping into your light 
    • Reflecting on 2023 and what's to come 

    This episode is very special to me, as I am so lucky that I have a mother who supports me in this wild adventure. I hope you enjoy getting to know a little more about me and my biggest rock throughout every single one of life's in-betweens.

  • In-Between: Navigating Heavy Grief & A Tribute To Our Best Girl

    In the two weeks since we last chatted, our beautiful, perfect baby girl, Luna, left us earthside. She was only 7. For those caught up with the pod, you know Luna was our pup, our child, one of our greatest sources of joy and now she's gone. After taking a few weeks to simply mourn, exist and process this grief, although I'm not at all over it,  I was ready to come back to the pod. 

    I promise this week's episode doesn't spiral into emotional rage. Instead, I wanted to talk about pet loss, loss in general, and grief, from what creates grief, navigating grief, managing so many conflicting and intense emotions at the same time, and what's been helping me during this unforeseen darkness and storm called grief. 

    This week's episode covers:

    • Luna's passing (do not worry, there are no triggering details on her earthly exit, but moreso what we believe led us to this tragic outcome)
    • Managing your own guilt when dealing with grief 
    • Navigating the storm of grief- do I run or do I sit with it? Spoiler alert: you weather the storm, one moment at a time
    • Things that have brought me comfort and peace . Community being one of the biggest pillars of support. 
    • The grieving process in general
    • My 3 things I've learned the most about grief during this time 


    Grief is ultimately love. It's painfully beautiful that something so harsh and dark and empty exists because of love. That's what I focus on today. Grief is chronic, it stays with you. It changes you. In the words of new favorite person, Nora McInerny, "You don't move on. You move forward." 

    I hope this episode brings some comfort to you or someone you know who is currently navigating grief. I cannot thank you enough for giving me the time and space for myself and to be welcomed back with so much love. This is what The In-Between was created  for, to find purpose, community, and understanding of all the crazy, beautiful life stuff we experience. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's weird, and sometimes it's painful. Together, we will get through. 

    This one's for you, Luna. I know you are with me now and forever, and will be with me as I build this community the way I always said. Thank you for finding us and  showing us how beautiful life and the world can be. Until you find us again, because I know you will, I love you, baby girl.

  • In-Between: Thanksgiving Boundaries

    This week's episode is giving thanks and enforcing boundaries. As much as we'd like to think everyone is looking forward to the holidays with family, a lot of us are stressed to enter our dysfunctional family dynamic. In today's In-Between, I'm giving some advice and tips that I picked up from author, Nedra Glover Tawwab, on what you can do to protect your peace and maintain boundaries. If you'd like to read the article I cited in today's episode, you can find it here: https://www.theskimm.com/wellness/setting-boundaries.  I discuss three tips for establishing boundaries, so that you can ultimately keep your peace this holiday season. 

    I'm also giving you life updates, chats around the fall of Matt Rife, and all the exciting thing coming up. Look at on social media for more updates. *wink wink*

  • In-Between: Advice To My Younger Self

    This week's in-between may be titled advice to my younger self, but everything I say relates to any walk of life. So whether you're a twenty something navigating what I call "second puberty", or a thirty-something pivoting in their career, or a forty-something looking to love themself, this episode offers something to everyone. 

    In a nutshell, Elizabeth's advice to her younger self includes:
    Overall, stop comparing yourself to others. 

    Relationships – 

    • You cannot change someone. Repeat – you cannot change someone
    • You’re not responsible for anyone else's feelings 
    • Don’t waste your time on people who don’t treat you how you deserve
    • Communication most often leads to discourse
    • You’re going to meet so many people in your life; some will come in and some will leave
    • Empathy and understanding will get you far but don’t be a people pleaser

    Work – 

    • If you’re first job ends up being your dream job, good for you. For others, we might end up all over the place before we find what drives us. No one’s path is wrong or right more than someone else's, as long as you keep putting one foot in front of the other
    • If you're not learning or getting some sort of fullfilment from it, release it
    • Write thank you emails
    • NETWORK 

    Self – 

    • Remember how important it is to keep your identity separate – you can be a mother, employee, manager, sibling, daughter, podcaster, soccer player, but these things make up YOU; one role doesn’t’ solely define you nor limit you 
    • Don’t apologize for being you or speaking up for yourself
    • Enjoy life – appreciate the small moments, the silly the sad, the high and low, don’t fall into the rat race trap of where you need to be, where you should be, and instead realize you’re where you need to be
    • You are going to make mistakes, heck you might even fail, but there is value in those lessons. It’s not that failing is SUPER COOL, but we need to view failing less as the worst case scenario because it does happen, it happens often, and there is learning and self development that comes from it
    • Find hobbies and interests and EXPLORE them 
    • Prioritize your mental health, especially if you have past trauma
    • Don’t forget how much power you have. You have the strength to overcome any obstacle and drive to make your dreams come true. No one said it would be easy
    • Fall in love with yourself.


    I'll see you fabulous, beautiful people next week for an all new in-between!
