I had the pleasure of interviewing Kareen Mills, who's interview I'm excited to share next week. As she shared her own story and the importance of listening to the stories of others, I really related to how stories are what connects us with others.

In this episode I discuss:

  • The power of story.
  • How fields as seemingly different as banking and education can be so similar. 
  • The significance of having both windows into other experiences and mirrors reflecting our own.
  • Bringing in more stories to share experiences of other gifted, creative and outside the box thinkers.

In this first interview episode of 2020, we are continuing to discuss how our intensity can be our greatest source of power. Join me for an exciting conversation as today’s guest teaches us about sharing our gifts with the world.

Emily Roach is an international speaker, business coach, and professional “Biz BFF.” Through her online courses, live workshops, and intimate retreats, she empowers women business owners to play full-out, show up wholly as themselves, and create the business of their dreams. When she’s not teaching women how to rock their business and crush their goals, she’s camping around Oregon in her vintage school bus with her family of five.

Show Highlights:

  • How Emily is multi-passionate about many things, especially helping people unlock their potential and realize their capabilities
  • Emily’s personal brand of intensity, which is exemplified by the way she talks too fast and too loud as she strives always to be authentic
  • Growing up, Emily was an “odd duck” who was shy, expressive, and creative
  • How she worried about fitting in as a teen, but then decided she didn’t want to fit in
  • How she found a small group of friends later in her high school years
  • The moment in high school when everything “clicked” and she found complete freedom
  • The societal pressure to be a “good girl” and a people-pleaser
  • When Emily feels out of control with her big emotions, and it seems like she’s not connected
  • How Emily gives others permission to be themselves and loves to share her enthusiasm to pump others up
  • How Emily harnesses the power of her intensity by putting more structure in place, which, in turn, gives her more freedom
  • The benefits of structuring your time and schedule
  • How meditation, journaling, and being supported by other people help Emily with her big-intense emotions
  • The best advice Emily ever received: “Accept all the support you can.”
  • Books that have helped Emily the most: The Big Leap, Playing Big, and Alice in Wonderland
  • How Emily helps others use their fire by reflecting back their light and brilliance and seeing their wisdom, potential, and capability
  • Parting words from Emily: “People have told me that I’m too much when at times I feel like I’m not enough. It’s an impossible juggle. Know that you are exactly the right amount of much-ness.”

This week on Embracing Intensity, I'm sharing the first lesson of my Ignite Your Power Course. In this lesson, we will observe our own powers, get clear on how to harness them and develop a “power toolkit” to help harness them more. You can find the full group discussion and other materials related to the lesson in the Embracing Intensity Community

In this episode: 

  • Learn the 5 types of intensity and how they can be your greatest superpowers.

  • Explore how to harness them and keep them from getting out of control or suppressed.

  • Learn tips to channel each intensity in a positive direction.

  • Improve your self-regulation skills.

  • Create your own toolkit to get in your “power zone.”
