Join Us in Girl Gang HQ!

The Punk Rock Personal Development podcast is allowing me to start powerful conversations that go beyond self-help jargon and theory. We're diving deep into people's shadows, the resistance they've overcome to get where they are, what's working for them, and the nitty gritty of how they live with passion and purpose. I want to open up these conversations and create a sisterhood where we can let it all hang out. A space where we can ask for support and advice without judgment. To share the crazy techniques and experiments we're implementing with people who get it.

That's why I created Girl Gang HQ.

It's a private Facebook group where we can talk about ALL of this stuff. I'm thinking of it as a virtual slumber party for babes who approach personal development with a wild and authentic heart. Maybe you collect crystals but aren't sure about their "energetic" powers or get squeamish around the word God but consider yourself spiritual. This is a space to have open and supportive conversations and I'm so excited to watch this community grow.

P.S. This week, my newsletter subscribers got a free lesson from my ecourse Romance Yourself. If you'd like to receive exclusive free content and discounts, be sure to sign up for my mailing list.

Carolyn Elliott is a bad bitch with a bodhisattva vow. She's a life coach, a writing teacher, and a legit witch. In this episode we talk about her recovery from addiction, how she got seriously interested in magic (and you can too), why her deepest desires go way beyond a 4-hour work week, the problem with most personal development content, and so much more.

  • What to do with offerings on your altar after they've sat there for a while
  • Carolyn's definition of "magic" and what it means to be magical
  • Why she was forced to dress up as the Egyptian God Thoth as a child

  • Her favourite books for anyone who is interested in learning about or starting to practice magic
  • What led Carolyn to transition from teaching poetry to working as a life coach
  • How Carolyn overcame crippling depression and major internal resistance to make this huge transformation
  • Her experience with shadow work and what that looks like in practice
  • What most personal development glosses over
  • Why Carolyn decided to celebrate her poverty and how that allowed her to create more wealth for herself
  • Why gratitude is an excruciatingly painful thing to feel
  • Carolyn's deepest desires - and why they go way beyond a 4-hour work week
