In today's episode, I'm chatting with Whitney Carlsen of He and She Eats Clean. You may recognize Whitney as she's been featured in Oxygen magazine and underwent a pretty incredible transformation when she discovered clean eating and strength training.
In today's conversation, Whitney shares candidly about how getting into fitness nearly destroyed her body image. She shares how she's feeling with it all today, and some really important steps she took in order to start loving herself.
Whitney shares a peak inside her world and passion for finance and traveling (hiking national parks).
I hope you enjoy this conversation! You can connect with Whitney directly at the links below:
"Living in a world where 'selfies' are glorified, personal opinions are amplified louder than God's, and society is unashamedly selfish, where do we find our meaning and purpose among all the insanity? From #Selfie to Selfless takes an authentic look at the multiple areas of life where we can wave the white flag on filtering frenzy, and shift our gaze from inward to upward, re-silting in a more fulfilled, confident, purpose driven life." -Kristen Perino, author of #Selfie to Selfless.
Today's episode of the #activatealifeyoulove podcast is with the lovely soul Kristen Perino. She's an author of the upcoming book #Selfie to Selfless and a girl after my own heart. She GETS it. In a world where we can fall prey to the perfect images on social media and the need to 'keep up with the Joneses,' Kristen keeps it real, in a very kind and powerful way. She shared her journey of receiving this 'book download', the process she went through to write it, why she feels called to gently nudge people closer to the things that truly matter (friends, family, being in the present), how Beyoncé falls into the mix, and so much more.

We're back with our 80th episode of the Activate A Life You Love Podcast. Today, I'm talking about some recent shifts I've made in my daily routine that have catapulted my results in my fitness, my nutrition and in my business. With the busy (sometimes stressful) season upon us, I find having a routine is something I thrive on more than ever. I hope you enjoy today's episode and walk away with something new that you can implement and feel good about this week. Wishing you all a beautiful Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season!
Episode 79 of the Activate A Life You Love Podcast is one that is near and dear to my heart. For a year and a half, you have all requested to hear from my husband Ben who plays such a huge role in my life. It took me many days to convince him, but yesterday we made it happen. He did such an amazing job sharing from his heart, I'm so proud of him. I know this is NOT something he loves (being in the spotlight) but he's such a talented speaker and has so much wisdom to share.
All of these questions were 100% candid, he didn't know any of them were coming and I made sure to include some of your questions here as well! I know you'll love hearing his point of view on marriage, life and everything in between. He is the reason I've become the woman I am today, and I'm so grateful to share him with you all on this podcast.
On today's podcast, I'm sharing 10 things my husband as taught me about a healthy relationship/marriage over the past 3 1/2 years. One of the most requested questions and topics I receive on a weekly basis is regarding relationships and questions about my own. I thought this would be a great time to share openly about so many of the things I've learned now that I'm finally in a healthy relationship and how it's shaped me as a person and the woman I am today. Stay tuned next week as my very own husband will be guest starring on the show :)
Hey guys, welcome back to the 75th episode of the Activate A Life You Love Podcast. I'm so excited to be back with today's solocast with something that's been heavy on my heart the last few months and today I'm talking openly about how I've been coping with this particular topic of "the unknown." In today's episode, I share my top 5 tips that have truly helped me find peace during these times of my life (whether that be career related, relationship related or anything really).
In today's episode, I'm discussing the Abraham Hicks work on "letting the universe help you." I share my own stores of this past year and how I have come to learn firsthand that I no longer desire to live this life without a higher power helping me to co-create the life that I desire.
In this episode, we talk about the important steps to getting into the "vortex" and manifesting what it is you truly desire.
You can find much of Abraham's work on Youtube that will benefit you greatly.
I'm back from Tokyooooooooooo. I had the most amazing trip abroad with my husband and I am SO grateful that our friends encouraged us to travel to Japan. It was never really on my radar but I can say with full confidence it was one of my favorite places we've ever traveled.
On today's episode, I'm talking about our experience in Japan, the culture, the food and all of my best travel tips, especially for international flights/destinations!

I've been *swooning* over this episode since the time we recorded it. It is always my ultimate goal to bring you the most inspiring, uplifting and educational content I possibly can. When I was introduced to Amanda by a mutual friend, I knew she would have so much wisdom to share. And that she did.
We talk about her recent book, Becoming Enough: A Heroine’s Journey to the Already Perfect Self. As many of you know, this podcast used to be called "Progress over Perfection," so it's no secret I always have a special place in my heart for recovering perfectionist like myself.
This episode is GOLD. I know you all will love it. I've included her audio book as well as the link to her book below!
We are back with the 71st episode of the Ali Reti Activate A Life You Love Podcast. This weekend, I've been thinking a lot about something I kept hearing over the weekend, and that is "do you have integrity with your word?" I thought this was fascinating because it's something I began analyzing in my own life. I do really amazing in many areas of my life, and then there are areas where I say I'm going to do things and I don't do them and I wind up feeling bad. Today, I want to challenge you to identify an area of your life you keep saying you're going to commit to but you don't. This could be your fitness, your nutrition, starting that blog you want to start, whatever it may be.
What do fitbits, myfitnesspal and scales have in common? They are our society's current obsession for tracking their progress. You want to know the funny thing? I've worked with hundreds of clients, and the resounding successful theme was that they STOPPED using conventional methods to track their progress. They stopped counting calories and stopped measuring their biceps. So what's the alternative? Over the last two years, I've learned some powerful strategies through trial and error to track my progress in all areas of my life without doing it in an obsessive way. Today, I'm sharing my top 5 tips for tracking your progress, whether it's your fitness, nutrition or career. These unconventional tips will help you loosen the grip of control and start allowing yourself to feel more supported in all that you desire to achieve.
The results you desire in your life are directly impacted by the amount of momentum you are able to crease. What would it look like to take more intentional steps towards the things you desire, to truly see things coming to fruition? What if together we could shorten that gap? In today's episode, I share 4 proven steps to help you create momentum in your life so you can be and do whatever it is your heart desires.

I'm SO excited to be sharing this episode with you all, because it's officially been one year since I started this podcast. It's been so neat reflecting back on all that we've covered, all of the amazing guests that we've had the pleasure of hosting, and of course, the best part is all of YOU. This community warms my heart and has brought me so much joy.
Today in honor for our one year anniversary, I'm doing a sweet givewaway on the podcast! Make sure to listen all the way through so you don't miss out on any of the details!
I also discuss my struggles with acne and the skincare line I SWEAR by. It's like, the most amazing thing ever. In need of new skincare to treat your acne, aging or just looking to improve your skin in general? Email me at email@example.com

I freaking LOVE this episode.This topic is SO the society we live in today. "I'm just eating this piece of cake because it's gluten/dairy/sugar/calorie free." "I'm going to eat this hamburger but no bun, so it's okay." You guys, WHO FREAKING CARES. This is why I love this interview with Alex. We discuss why you need to STOP apologizing for what you are eating. Own your decisions, own your choices and be confident in them. Those that love and support you won't need an explanation, those that do are not meant to be in your life!
Today on the Activate A Life You Love Podcast, I'm joined by Teri Lynn Wilkins, who's back for her second interview. If you haven't already listened to her first interview, it's episode #3 on betrayal and forgiveness.
I am so excited to be speaking with Teri Lynn again. She was the number one most requested guest to return so that we could go deeper into her story, what she's learned over the past year when it comes to surrendering her life and how spirituality has played a large role.
Today's 5 minute TAKE ACTION FRIDAY is quite simple, but so incredibly powerful. I'm talking about the idea of "sticking with it." You all know what I mean, you're probably reading this and instinctively know, "oh wow she's right, I need to stick with X." Listen in today to feel inspired, reassured and over all READY to keep going. I believe in YOU!
Embracing your story is one of the greatest gifts you can ever give yourself. I call it "sitting on gold." Your story is what connects you to others and what makes you UNIQUELY YOU. It's not always easy though, to embrace what you've been through. To recount the difficult times and draw the life lessons out of them.
Today, I'm talking about my top 5 tips for embracing your story. If you're ready to start sharing your story in a small or big way, I know you'll find this helpful.
This week I'm sharing my own experience with hormonal birth control. This is an episode I've wanted to do for a long time, however I wanted to wait until I'd gone off of hormonal birth control to give you the full story.
Many women ask me on a regular basis what my experience has been on the pill, having an IUD (the Mirena) etc. Today, I'm talking openly about the ups and downs, the symptoms I experience and why I ultimately chose to go off of hormonal birth control for good.

We're back with our 63rd episode of the 'Ali Reti' Podcast where we Activate A Life You Love. Today's episode was inspired by a recent conversation with a new client who asked an AMAZING question. He said Ali, "how do you sift through the myriad of information out there when it comes to your diet and nutrition?" I thought it was such a phenomenal question that I decided to do a YouTube video that you can watch HERE as well as expand on the podcast today.
What we discuss: How to not be overwhelmed and my top 4 tips for beating overwhelm!

I debated whether or not to even release this episode. In fact I almost didn't record it because I knew it wouldn't be "near perfect" quality like my other episodes. And then I reminded myself that you don't listen to this podcast for perfection, you come back time and time again because you want RAW and REAL and UNCUT episodes, and that is what this episode encapsulates entirely.
Last night I took a sunset walk after a really tough couple of days. Walking immediately changes my mood (my state to be exact) and so I knew it would be so healing and freeing for me. About 10 minutes in I broke down and had this urge to record a podcast, in the moment. I feel it's so important to write and talk about things in the moment, because often it's hard to really capture the same motion later.
I think about you all and how you handle tough days. What you must be thinking/feeling/wondering about, and so today I share exactly what was on my heart during my walk. Breakdowns and all. And the beautiful thing? Simply by talking it through with you I felt more like myself than I had in days.
I really hope you enjoy today's episode, and now I'd love to hear from you. What do you do on tough days? How do you cope? As always, I LOVE hearing from you. You are what keeps me going. Please feel free to head over to instagram and let me know in the comments. Something you're struggling with, something I can help you with, or simply how this episode spoke to you.

This week on the Ali Reti Podcast, I'm letting you in on why I've been MIA the past few weeks. While it hasn't been all rainbows and butterflies, I'm grateful for what's happened for me and feel confident in where it's leading me. I'm sharing about one of the most phenomenal events I've ever been to from one of my favorite spiritual teachers Esther Hicks this past weekend who was in Colorado.
In this episode I discuss:

Today's episode is an interview with someone who knows all too well what it's like to get in her own way. I can relate SO much to this interview, as I have probably been the BIGGEST thing getting in my own way of accomplishing what I desire. Whether that's in relationships, my career, my health and fitness, you name it.
That's why I'm so excited about today's interview. This is something ALL of us experience many times throughout of lives. Creating stories about why we aren't good enough, about why we aren't qualified to do something, etc.

I started 707AVE with a mission to inspire you to live the life of your dreams. I believe anything is possible. You can be, have, and do whatever you want. And you can create the life of your dreams. It’s all inside of you.
And sometimes you can’t see the entire picture. You can’t know what you were meant to do… but you have to let go and trust that you’re exactly where you should be.
My path hasn’t been exactly clear-cut, and I’m still figuring things out… but I do know one thing:
In order to live the life of your dreams, you have to love yourself more than anything or anyone in the world.
From that place of self love, you will amass confidence and you will believe in yourself… you’ll believe that you can achieve anything.
And you’ll be able to create a life beyond your wildest dreams.
So who am I?
I am your brand clarity + business coach.
And my mission is to push you farther than you ever dreamed possible.
And live the life beyond your wildest dreams.
I love dark chocolate, coffee, Levis, and Anthropologie.
You can find me listening to A Fine Frenzy, Tom Petty, U2, or Pearl Jam. I always get extra packets of crushed red pepper to put on my pizza, and everything I eat has to be spicy.
I love exploring new restaurants, traveling, and taking long walks on the beach.
And I am so happy that you are here.
Take a moment to get inspired by the interviews and articles here on 707AVE.
