Radical acceptance is this week's special.
This week you're getting the second part of Erica's two-parter on the podcast. Maybe it was the late hours we were recording (the audio for this week was definitely recorded after 9pm on a weeknight 😂)... maybe it was just our passion for invoking necessary changes in our entrepreneurial & coaching industries.
Honestly, it doesn't matter. I hope you feel our passion for change in this episode.
We dig into the unspoken spaces of our business education communities and it is necessary and it is time.
Here's the funny thing about Erica's episodes... You see, Erica is super woo like me. And just like me, she lives a both-and existence providing expertise in areas that are *not* woo-woo. But perhaps because of our innate woo-ness, the Universe timed her episodes to drop when the world is going through a dark night of the soul.
I'm a firm believer that what you do in one area is directly tied to all the areas where you do any things at all. If you want to make change on a global level, you have to start with yourself, personally. Then, and only then, can you have strong impact in your zone of genius.
For Erica that's been the diversity & inclusion space. For me, it's been around systems & operations.
So we did the thing... the pebbles have been cast into the water and the ripples are already in motion.
Come skip some stones with us this week. You'll be so glad you did. 💕

Podcast Episode Title:
In this week’s episode, join host Mary Williams and special guest Erica Courdae for the second part of a two part episode. Together, they embark on a captivating journey into the heart of human nature, shedding light on the wisdom of embracing our multifaceted selves.
The episode delves into the powerful realization that no one is defined solely as "good" or "bad." Instead, Mary and Erica explore the idea that all individuals possess the capacity for both light and shadow, and our unique life experiences shape our responses. Erica masterfully articulates that the true work, often referred to as "shadow work," involves acknowledging these dualities within ourselves and working towards reconciliation.
The dialogue delves into the complexity of societal perspectives on joy, personal growth, and the challenge of finding happiness without encroaching on others. Through Erica's insight, listeners are encouraged to use their voices to share their perceptions and make a positive impact on the world.
