Ep 79: Bamboozled By Jesus: Being Tricked into the Life of Your Dreams with Yvonne Orji

Ep 79: Bamboozled By Jesus: Being Tricked into the Life of Your Dreams with Yvonne Orji
Hi Friends! I hope you came ready to laugh! In today's episode I chat with Yvonne Orji, an Emmy-nominated Nigerian American actress, writer and comedian. She entertains international audiences and is a sought-after speaker. Her TEDx talk; "The Wait Is Sexy," has garnered over a million views.

In this episode, I get to ask Yvonne the perennial question: Does God have a sense of humor? I'm a firm believer that God not only has a sense of humor but has a great sense of humor. As someone who values humor, wit, and banter, I've come to see it reflected in Scripture from the One who created the world. Whether you believe in God or not, Jesus longs to have a relationship with you! So, I can't imagine that if we, His most valuable creation, have wide varieties of humor that range through individual personalities, that the God of the universe, who created us in His image, does not have one.

I hope you enjoy listening to Yvonne as much as I enjoyed interviewing her. Do me a favor, take notes, laugh, and tag @YvonneOrji and I @BiancaOlthoff, on Instagram to win a copy of her fabulous book!

Love you,

B

Ep 78: When Life Lets You Down with Jordan Lee Dooley
Hi Friends! We've all gone through hard seasons in life. And some of us have even been through a season wanting to fulfill a dream or get a promotion or the family that we've always wanted and then not being able to get what we want when it seems like we're almost there.

In today's episode, my guest Jordan Lee Dooley will be sharing with us some practical steps on how to navigate painful setbacks and hardships. Jordan shares how difficult experiences, waiting seasons, and our greatest disappointments can bring clarity to what we really want in life.

If you find yourself frustrated because you are not where you thought you should be in life, this episode is for you. Life is filled with unmet expectations, disrupted dreams, uncertainty, and in-between seasons. Lean in and listen to how Jordan's experiences taught her to take a long pause, audit her life, and learn how to gain greater clarity about what she truly wanted, why she wanted it, and how to begin pursuing it.

Friend, if you are in a season of in-betweens, not-quites, and unknowns you are not alone. You belong to this community and we're here for you. Let Jordan know how this episode has impacted you by tagging us @BiancaOlthoff and @JordanLeeDooley

Talk to you next week, friend!

Love you,

B

Ep 77: Beyond the BossBabe: Music, Business, Infertility and the Weapon Behind Tasha Cobbs Leonard

Ep 77: Beyond the BossBabe: Music, Business, Infertility and the Weapon Behind Tasha Cobbs Leonard
Hi Family! Welcome back to a new season of the podcast. On today's episode we are kicking off season FIVE with the incomparable and uber talented Tasha Cobbs Leonard. I'm excited to jump into today's interview and topic at hand.

I'm sure you've seen or heard the phrase BossBabe or GirlBoss. Women are using the tags on photos that demonstrate their professional or personal strength, fearlessness, successes, and ambition, and desire to lift up others in the process.

But something about those titles and ethos rubbed me the wrong way.

It seems that by having to identify ourselves as GIRLBOSS and shouting our girl-ness and boss-ness from the hashtag rooftops that we're overcompensating for something - why not just show your success by being a good boss. Tasha could use the hashtag all day everyday of BossBabe, but instead she uses her entrepreneurial, pastoral, and creative prowess to SHOW not tell.

I can't wait for you to get to know and love this beautiful and talented woman of God. Take notes and quotes and tag us @BiancaOlthoff and @TashaCobbsLeonard on social media so we can repost your learnings. I love when our guests know the impact they are having! I can't wait to see what you're learning and loving about this series.

Love you,

B

It's a vibe in season FIVE!
Hey Family! We are heading into our FIFTH season of the podcast and all I can say is that It's Gonna Be A Vibe in Season Five!??

Thank you for spending time listening to this podcast and being part of this amazing community. My heart is not just to share information, but to cultivate a space for transformation. In order to do that, we gotta keep it real and talk about things that sometimes make us feel a little uncomfortable. As I like to say We're Going There!

This season is shaping up to be one of my favorites! Not only are we hosting amazing thinkers, creatives, and leaders but we'll also be tackling topics like new age, manifestation, coping with grief, living your life with purpose and balance, discovering your IT factor, how to build lifelong friendships, and so much more.

I would love it if you left a kind review. When you do, take a screenshot, post it on social media and tag me @BiancaOlthoff. Also, subscribe to the podcast so you don't miss any of the episodes. This show is a labor of love and I'm honored to bring you content that is educational, motivational, and inspirational.

Love you, Fam!

Yes, the year of the pandemic. You also get access to a Bible study guide for the series that will help you in your journey through the book of James, and it's absolutely FREE.
