103 ~ Beth Baker ~ Running Coach and Podcaster
She's Bold with Beth Whitman
Today’s conversation is with running coach and fellow podcaster (and fellow name-sharer) Beth Baker. If you’ve ever considered running or exercising or even just trying to figure out other ways to incrementally improve your life (and hopefully you ALL have, that’s why you’re listening), you’re going to really love this conversation. You could say Beth is a reluctant Seattleite. And despite us both being here for quite a while, we only recently got connected when I was a guest on her podcast, Why We Run (and I’m going to be releasing that episode here soon so you can hear our full conversation where she’s asking me the questions). Like me, Beth didn’t get into running because it was something she had done all her life. She got into it as an adult and had to navigate her way through it without a lot of mentorship (or even online information). It took her a year to work up to a 5K race but once she did that, her trajectory was fast. But she still remembers her reluctance and the self-talk and doubts that initially kept her from running. That’s why today she’s a running coach encouraging first time runners. Because she remembers what it was like to just start out. You don’t have to be a runner or have any interest in running to get inspired by this conversation and what it is that Beth does. So with that, enjoy this conversation with running coach, Beth Baker.   ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?

102 ~ Kellie Phelan - Founder of The Works Seattle on Crohn's Disease, Starting a Business and Surrogacy
She's Bold with Beth Whitman
Today’s guest is Kellie Phelan. Kellie is the founder of The Works Seattle. The Works offers DIY classes for a variety of things including cooking, canning, sewing, art classes, pumpkin carving, tarot card reading and much, much more. But for Kellie, The Works is much more than just a classroom or a place for learning. It’s a place for connecting. It’s where people come together, and yes, they’re learning a new skill, but they’re also making friends in the process. Obviously this is resonating with people because The Works is growing by leaps and bounds. Kellie shares her story of how The Works came to be. How it was an illness that made her realize she needed to leave a stressful job and find work that resonated with her, one in which she could create a lifestyle business. I really do love Kellie’s positive can-do attitude and the way that she’s made the best of situations. ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?

101 ~ Nichole Doane ~ Trauma Nurse and Survivor on Her Near Death Experience
She's Bold with Beth Whitman
Today’s guest is Nichole Doane. Nichole is a trauma nurse at Harborview Medical Center here in Seattle. Harborview, as many people in my neck of the woods knows, is THE trauma center for the Pacific Northwest. It’s where you want to be taken in the case of a traumatic injury or burn. But I didn’t want to speak to Nichole because of her work as a trauma nurse. Instead, it was because of an accident she had while canyoneering. This near-fatal fall changed the trajectory of her life. Nichole was on a canyoneering trip in August of 2017 when she fell about 60 feet. What happened to her in the minutes leading up to the fall and the hours following it, when she was awaiting a rescue, was nothing short of a miracle. It’s really incredible to me the way she processed what was going on—and then, frankly—lived to tell about it. Since her accident and recovery, Nichole is now spending her time helping those in crisis—as a speaker by helping others through traumatic experiences and by bringing to light the PTSD that happens within the community of public servants. You’ll understand what exactly I mean as you listen to our conversation. In short, I’ve never heard anyone explain their near-death experience quite like Nichole does. I’m moved by the way she’s taken that experience and turned it into such a force for good. With that, please enjoy this conversation with Nichole Doane. ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?

099 ~ Darcey Steinke, Author, on Lifting the Veil of Shame on Menopause
She's Bold with Beth Whitman
Win a copy of Flash Count Diary by subscribing to the She's Bold Podcast newsletter!   Today’s guest is author, Darcey Steinke. Darcey has a new book out called Flash Count Diary: Menopause and the Vindication of Natural Life. Fair warning that this is an adult conversation and may not be for everyone. But it’s an important conversation in that menopause has been traditionally a topic that isn’t often talked about openly. For those going through it, there’s a lot of shame around it because of the sometimes very obvious symptoms – most notably, hot flashes. But it’s also a time of life for women when a lot of emotion and other physical changes can occur. Darcey’s approach is that this is just another chapter in a woman’s life and should be embraced, not necessarily looked upon as a medical condition. Her book and this conversation are so important to how we view menopause and how we can change our language around it to not be something viewed as a “condition” or as a problem to solve. There’s no doubt that you have many women in your life that could benefit from hearing this conversation so please do share it. Let’s get the word out and start thinking about menopause a bit differently. If you’d like to win a copy of her book, Flash Count Diary, sign up for the She’s Bold Podcast newsletter. I’ll simply alert you each time a new episode is released. I’ll give you until the end of the month to sign up for that newsletter and will randomly choose a winner on August 1st amongst all the current subscribers. That will have to be a winner with a US address. (Apologies if you’re out of the country.) OK - with that, please enjoy this conversation with Darcey Steinke. ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?

098 ~ Dina Bennett - Author and Travel Junkie on being an expat and saying yes
She's Bold with Beth Whitman
Today’s guest is Dina Bennett – author, travel junkie and unorthodox, as she says. Dina Bennett landed on my radar years ago when I was sent a copy of her book, Peking to Paris: Life and Love on a Short Drive Around Half the World. This documents her trip as the unlikely navigator in an antique car in a motor rally. That was maybe five or six years ago. Although we did meet briefly at a conference a year or so before her book came out, this was the first time we really got a chance to sit down and chat. And I have to admit I was thoroughly charmed by Dina and so loved this conversation. When we first met, Dina was living in Colorado but has since moved to France where she’s been, for the most part, for the past two years. Dina is the author of two books including Peking to Paris as well as A Travel Junkie’s Diary – both of which I’ll link to below. But Dina is also an ex-pat, a globe-trotter, a navigator, a rancher, a roadtripper and so much more. Perhaps most importantly, to me, she describes herself as someone who more often says yes than no. I could go on but I want to dive into this, because I know you’re going to love this conversation with Dina Bennett. ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?
