106: Emily Giffin: Something Borrowed, Something Lawyered, and Something Written

106: Emily Giffin: Something Borrowed, Something Lawyered, and Something Written

April 10, 2019

"All writers are neurotic and somewhat miserable." :)

Emily Giffin, author of major hit novels such as Something Borrowed (adapted for the screen and hit theaters in May 2011, starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski.), and eight others - well, she is one of my writing heroes.

Her books, all filled with endearingly flawed characters and emotional complexity, have resonated deeply with both critics and readers around the world, achieving bestseller status in a number of countries, including the United States (#1), Canada (#1), United Kingdom, France, Brazil and Poland (#1). The books have been translated into thirty-one languages, with over eleven million copies sold worldwide. In addition, five of her novels have been optioned for the big screen and are in various stages of development. 

Emily Giffin, a Chicago native, graduated summa cum laude from Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia School of Law. After law school, she moved to Manhattan and practiced litigation at a large firm for several years while she paid back her school loans, wrote a novel in her very limited spare time, and dreamed of becoming a writer. 

Despite the rejection of her first manuscript, Giffin persisted, retiring from the legal profession and moving to London to pursue her dreams full time. It was there that she began writing Something Borrowed(2004), a story of a young woman who, upon turning thirty, finally learned to take a risk and follow her heart. One year later, Giffin’s own gamble paid off, as she completed her manuscript, landed an agent and signed a two-book deal on both sides of the Atlantic. The following summer, Something Borrowed, hailed as a “heartbreakingly honest debut” with “dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth,” became a surprise sensation, and Giffin vowed never to practice law again.

Dubbed a “modern day Jane Austen” (Vanity Fair) and a “dependably down-to-earth storyteller” (New York Times), Giffin has since penned six more New York Times bestsellers, Something Blue (2005), Baby Proof (2006), Love the One You’re With (2008), Heart of the Matter (2010), Where We Belong (2012), The One & Only (2014) and First Comes Love (2016).  

Giffin now resides with her husband and three children in Atlanta. Her ninth novel, All We Ever Wanted, was released on June 26, 2018.

100: Heather B. Armstrong: From Dooce to the Valedictorian of Being Dead

100: Heather B. Armstrong: From Dooce to the Valedictorian of Being Dead

March 19, 2019

Big fan girl moment speaking with Heather B. Armstrong --founder of Dooce.com --and author of the upcoming book, The Valedictorian of Being Dead. And happy 100th episode, podcast :)

I think the intro from Heather B. Armstrong's famous blog, Dooce.com, probably describes her best:

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong. When I first wrote a bio for this site I called myself a SAHM—a Stay At Home Mom, or, Shit Ass Ho Motherfucker. More than a decade later I am now what’s referred to as a FTSWM—a Full-Time Single Working Mom, or, Fuck That Shit Where’s Marijuana.

This used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works.

Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride. dooce is back. And she’s talking about herself in the third person, so you know you better have a barf bag at the ready.

I came, I talked, and I fan-girled with this authentic AF mom, writer and advocate.

85: Dr. Christiane Northrup: Dodging Energy Vampires (and Goddesses Never Age)

85: Dr. Christiane Northrup: Dodging Energy Vampires (and Goddesses Never Age)

August 30, 2018

"Our belief system becomes biology."

Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer and a leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness, which includes the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Internationally known for her empowering approach to women’s health and wellness, Dr. Northrup teaches women how to thrive at every stage of life.

"Getting older is the time to increase value and competency."

A board-certified OB/GYN physician, Dr. Northrup graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and completed her residency at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston. She was also an assistant clinical professor of OB/GYN at Maine Medical Center for 20 years.

Dr. Northrup knows that the key to vibrant health on all levels is within us—our inner wisdom. She says, “When we find the connection between our thoughts, beliefs, physical health, and life circumstances, we find that we are in the driver’s seat of our lives and can make profound changes. Nothing is more exhilarating or empowering.”

Dr. Northrup’s work has been featured on Super Soul Sunday on OWN, The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today ShowNBC Nightly NewsThe ViewRachael RayGood Morning America20/20, and The Dr. Oz Show.  Women clearly trust Dr. Northrup’s approach. In 2013, Reader’s Digest named her one of “The 100 Most Trusted People in America.” And, in 2016, she was named one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100, a group of leaders who are using their voices and talent to awaken humanity.

Dr. Northrup has spent her life as an advocate for women’s health and wellness, first as a practicing OB/GYN physician for 25 years and now as an internationally respected writer and speaker. Her books have been translated into 24 languages.

A multiple New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Northup’s most recent book, Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide To Evading Relationships That Drain You And Restoring Your Health And Power (Hay House, April 2018) was an immediate success. In it Dr. Northrup sheds light on the real reason so many people suffer from seemingly inexplicable health conditions. Based on her professional and person experiences, Dr. Northrup provides strategies for removing narcissists and other cluster b-types from your life, and how you can recover your health after a relationship with an energy vampire.

Dr. Northrup put her own personal truth on paper in 1994, with the first edition of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (Bantam, 1994). This groundbreaking classic quickly became a New York Times bestseller, and has been the veritable bible of women’s health for nearly two decades. With its raw facts and intriguing case histories, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom explains exactly how to “create physical and emotional health and healing.”

Her second book, The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001, 2006, 2012), has been embraced by women everywhere, including Oprah Winfrey, who sought Dr. Northrup’s wisdom when she turned 50 and faced “The Big M.” In this New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup once again challenged convention with inspiring insights—the “change” is not a collection of symptoms to be fixed, but a mind/body revolution, which brings tremendous opportunity for happiness.

Mother-Daughter Wisdom, Dr. Northrup’s third book (Bantam, 2005), was voted Amazon’s #1 book of the year in both parenting and mind/body health, and was also nominated for a Quill Award.

In The Secret Pleasures of Menopause (Hay House, 2008) and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook (Hay House, 2009), Dr. Northrup outlines the crucial link between health and pleasure.

Beautiful Girl, (Hay House, 2013) Dr. Northrup’s children’s book, brings her positive message to the youngest of girls.

In Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality and Wellbeing (Hay House, February 2015), which quickly became a New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup inspires women (and men) with an entirely different mindset about what it means to grow older.

In her book, Making Life Easy: A Simple Guide to A Divinely Inspired Life (Hay House, 2016) Dr. Northrup shares the essential truth that has guided her since medical school, and advises her readers how to make their lives truly easy.

Dr. Northrup has also hosted eight highly successful public-television specials, beginning in 1998. Her latest was based on her book, Goddesses Never Age, and first aired nationwide in February 2015.

Dr. Northrup also founded Amata Life, a company that manufactures and distributes a product line featuring the Pueraria mirifica plant, a traditional medicine used by Thai women for 700 years. These health and beauty products help alleviate the symptoms of menopause, so women can truly thrive in the wisdom of this uniquely female life stage.

As a business owner, physician, former surgeon, mother, writer, and speaker, Dr. Northrup acknowledges our individual and collective capacity for growth, freedom, joy, and balance. When she’s not traveling and teaching, Dr. Northrup loves devoting her leisure time to dancing Argentine Tango, playing the harp, going to the movies, staying fit, getting together with her daughters and friends, boating, and reading.

71: Jeffrey Davis: Tracking Wonder & Big Picture Map Making

71: Jeffrey Davis: Tracking Wonder & Big Picture Map Making

May 3, 2018

What a refreshing conversation with the amazing Jeffrey Davis. Jeffrey is a speaker, author, founder of Tracking Wonder & Brand Artistry Labs. "Wonder is your surprising advantage," Jeffrey says.

You don’t have to surrender or suppress your curiosity. Whether you’re an executive, professional, creative, or entrepreneur, you are a storyteller. And you don’t have to sacrifice your big idea in pursuit of profit. Forget about choosing between being “responsible” or living a fulfilling life. You can do both. Today, we live in a world where you can build a meaningful business and life while also making a living and a difference.

We talk about mostly parenting, creativity and life... but such a great time with this amazing Wonder. :)
