EPISODE 54: RELIGION, FAITH, & SOCIAL EXPECTATIONS



What do they say?  Never talk politics, money, and religion?  We never like to follow the rules anyway. This week we talk about religion and faith.  While many people equate religion and faith we know that they are not the same.  Some people look to religion for community or cultural significance.  Some people look to the woods for their faith.

As we embark on this season and explore faith journeys we want to make sure we all know that there is no judgment where we find our faith. 

We want to inspire you to listen to your inner voice and trust your heart.  Find your faith where you can.  Set your boundaries as you need to.  Leave society’s expectations at the door.  

Where do you derive your faith from? How has religion impacted your life?

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Journal time!  Reflect on how religion was part of your growing community and home growing up? In what ways have the expectations of your past experiences with religion affected your current faith journey?
  2. Share your experiences with your accountability partner or with us.  You know where to find us!

EPISODE 53: WHAT IS FAITH?



What is faith?  

Faith is so very personal to each of us, and in many ways defies definition. It is more than a religious doctrine or a set of beliefs. It is a feeling, intuition, depth of knowing inside of us that relates to our own experiences.

When you have faith, you trust or believe in something very strongly. Some people have faith in a higher being, others put their faith behind the Red Sox.

This episode will  set the stage for a season where we explore what faith is to us and others as we invite guests on the podcast for the first time.

We will also strive to answer, where does faith come from?  What does faith mean to us? How can faith transform us?

Just us today as we kick off this deep and exciting conversation.

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. This season we are going to ask you to push your personal boundaries a bit. Not to distress, but maybe to a bit of discomfort. Grab a pen and a journal and dig in. Answer each of the following questions with the first thought that comes to mind
    1. Do you feel a sense of faith?
    2. Where do you feel it in your body?
    3. Is your faith connected to a place?
    4. How do you maintain your connection to god, the universe, the world at large? Is it easy, hard or somewhere in between?
  2. Put your answers down for now. Come back and re-read later. Share some with us in the comments to our insta post of this episode. Let us know how you experience faith in your everyday life. @goboldlytogether

EPISODE 52: NEW YEAR YOUR YEAR



Happy New Year!

As we kick off Season 5 we also kick off 2022.  How do you like to kick off the new year? Tovah and Rielly talk about what they love about a fresh start that comes with the new year and what they really don’t like.  

This episode spends some time looking at the research which shows that just like you might have thought, resolutions are not always the best way to kick off your year.  We talk about how we can make your New Year’s goals and plans actually stick. We definitely recommend figuring out what is your best way to hold yourself accountable and talk about Gretchen Rubin’s Four Tendencies. 

Finally, Tovah and Rielly share how we like to start our year.  The important questions we ask ourselves.  Our words of the year.  And the goals we set for ourselves.  #22for2022

Join us for our most exciting season yet!

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Make a plan for approaching 2022 that fits best for you.  Write it out. 
  2. Reach out to us for how we can help.  We still have a few coaching spots  and spots for the Limitless Life Sisterhood mastermind. Now is your chance to join us!

EPISODE 51: CELEBRATION OF SISTERHOOD



Join us on this final episode of We Go Boldly in 2021 as we celebrate sisterhood, friendship, women, and the journey that we are all on to find our place in this life. We are excited to talk sisterhood circles, and the power of female relationships in our lives.

As we close out our conversations on identity formation and transformation we take the time to celebrate all the ways in which the people in our lives have impacted our identity. We address the good and bad of how we let others change our view of ourselves.

It is a great time to review our friendships, our relationships and the people in our lives. The ways in which we want to call in new friendships and connect to groups. Listen in as we dive deep into the power of women working together, lifting each other up, elevating our lives together. 

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Take some time to think about your relationships, your family and friends, what is working for you and what is not? Do you have relationships that lift you up?
  2. Where can you be a more connected friend? Are there people in your life that you need to release?
  3. Connect with your accountability partner and discuss what you find.

EPISODE 50: RITUALS, HABITS, & IDENTITY



If you listen to us (if you don’t what are you waiting for?) then you know that we have BIG thoughts and feelings about motivation and habits.  There are ways, effective and encouraging ways, to build new habits into your life.  

On this week’s episode we break down the difference between rituals, traditions, and habits and how they fit into our lives. We look past our deeper conversations about identity and see how identity can play a big role in the rituals and habits in our lives.  Spoiler alert: building habits based on your identity or the identity that you are trying to intentionally live can make be way more effective than that silly motivation. 

As you plan your New Year’s plans (where dare not say resolutions) let us help you figure out what that looks like for you.  Head over to our website to learn more about our Limitless Life Sisterhood.  We launch this week!

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. What is your identity right now? What daily rituals and habits strengthen your identity and what contrast with your identity?
  2.  What cultural rituals do you have about yourself? What cultural rituals impact your identity? Are there aspects of your identity that you want to change? Why?
  3. Join the conversation @goboldlytogether

EPISODE 49: ORGANIZATIONAL IDENTITY



Today we take identity out of the individual and into the organizational. In reality, it is so much of the same thing. When we dive into the topic of identity and how it applies to organizations, corporations and even international conglomerates at the core of the conversation is the who, what, and why of the entity. Join us as we talk all about identity formation as it pertains to organizations and corporate cultures. 

We explore the three elements that make up corporate identity: purpose, value, and culture. We dive deep into the larger context in which corporate identity impacts the ability of organizations to operate in the world, to influence social issues, and to have a positive economic outcome. 

Our conversation flows between general corporate culture and the new way in which corporations are influencing and being influenced by society and shifting cultural norms. We discuss the impact of social justice issues on corporate culture and vice versa. Tune in for an exciting discussion of identity and modern corporate culture.

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Look at your purchasing habits in your household. Are they impacted by social causes? In what ways?
  2. Are there ways you could change how you spend money to make a social impact?
  3. Join the conversation @goboldlytogether

EPISODE 48: LABELS & IDENTITY



“I used to worry about the labels others placed on me … until I realized my limitations weren’t coming from their labels, but from my own.” –Steve Maraboli

This week we jump right into a discussion on labels and how they help and how they hurt us. The tendency to label ourselves and others can blur the lines between truth and fiction. It can create tension between who we think we are supposed to be and who we actually are.  This can often mean that we can grow as people and not even realize it.  

While we might need labels to distinguish things, to create some form of order, labels can often do more harm than good. 

We do it to others, and we do it to ourselves. Whether positive or negative, what we whisper to ourselves every day has a great influence on our self-concept, and dictates the direction of our thoughts and actions. We are what we think we are.

We talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of levels but we also talk about how labels can be used to serve us.  Join us this week and let us know what labels you’re willing to let go and what labels you are ready to EMBRACE!

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Make a list of all the identities you can think of that you and others have used to define you.
  2.  Under each label, make bullet points describing how you show up and show you are “supposed” to show up in each identity.
  3. Cross out the ones that don’t serve you.  Are their holes?  What’s missing?
  4. Check out our Defining You Course.

EPISODE 47: STORYTELLING AND IMPACT ON IDENTITY



C.S. Lewis once said: “In great literature, I become a thousand different men but still remain myself.” Storytelling is a passageway to another world where we can become more than we understood before we stepped forward. Once we understand, we cannot then un-understand. The beauty of stories is their capacity to expand our world and our lives. We may remain ourselves, but not ourselves untouched. 

Join us on the podcast today as we dive deep into one of our greatest joys and passions, stories and how they have the power to impact us all. We continue the season-long conversation on identity, from formation to transformation to maintenance. We are covering as many bases as we can find along the way. Today is no exception, though it is one of my personal favorites. We talk about the power of story to transform, expose, uplift, deconstruct, and expand the lives of individuals and cultures over time. 

Tune in to the We Go Boldly podcast anywhere you find your favorite podcasts. Do us a huge favor while you’re at it and save, share and like this post. Don’t forget to do the homework at the end and let us know how it goes! We are all on this brave and bold journey together!

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Think back to a moment when you read, watched or engaged in a fiction for pleasure. 
  2. What can you remember about the experience? How did you feel during the engagement? How did you feel after? Spend some time writing about the experiences that have moved you the most. The books, movies, plays, and other fictional stories and characters that impact your life.
  3. As always, reach out to your accountability partner to compare notes.
  4. Final task this week, share a photo of your favorite book, movie, tv show, character etc on social media and tag us @goboldlytogether so we can learn more about what moves you.

EPISODE 46: FINDING JOY AND NOT LOSING OUR IDENTITY



This time of year is filled with joy and often fraught with stress. We have spent all year digging deep and listening to our inner voice and focusing on ensuring we find and hold onto our identities in the face of challenges.  Now is not the time to lose ourselves.

Holidays allow for the opportunity to build our family identity through family traditions. Cultivating family identity can be an anchor for you. Family identity can be reinforced by actually naming the traditions you do. They have a magical way of instilling family identity. 

In this week’s episode, Rielly and Tovah jump feet first into the holiday season with equal amounts of excitement and apprehension.  Growing up neither one would describe their holidays as a “Walton Family Christmas” but it allows them to decide what traditions they create for their families. 

They talk about their own traditions, setting boundaries, holding onto our identities, and yes, finding joy this holiday season.

Join us as you are preparing for this December. 

GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK

  1. Think about what would make your December great.  Related to holidays or otherwise.  List 3 things that you really want to do.  List 3 things that you really don’t want to do.  Involve our family and friends in this process if that is helpful. Try to figure out a plan to make these things happen and set yourself up for success this December. 
  2. You know what helps stay close to your identity each year? A mission statement.  Get yours by signing up for our Defining You course. Find the link in our Instagram bio.
