Create Time for the Things That Matter Most.

124. Other people's agendas

Dec 01, 2022

Do you ever get defensive when others make requests for your time?

Do you ever say yes to something begrudgingly?

(Same! I used to do this all the time.)

So today on the podcast we are discussing other people’s agendas and how to navigate requests for your time with grace - without feeling bad for either saying yes OR no.

I’ll see you inside! xo, Janeen



[00:00:00] Janeen: Well, hey, they're my friends. Welcome back to another episode of the podcast. I am Janeen Alley, and as always, I'm super excited to be hanging out with you guys today. We are talking about other people's agendas today. I think this one's gonna be a really good one.

[00:00:15] This was really fun for me to kind of flesh this one out and to think about a lot of the things that I'm gonna be sharing with you. The idea for this podcast came based off of a text conversation that I was having with one of my friends. And we're going to get into...

123. How to Be Consistently Creative

Nov 24, 2022

Have you ever wondered how to create content consistently - especially when you don't feel inspired? Or have you ever been concerned about monetizing a creative outlet because you're afraid it will zap all the fun out of the creative process?

In this week's podcast, I am going to talk about how to consistently show up with fresh ideas even if you're feeling stuck in a creative rut or you don't think your stuff is any good.

Because the truth is you're not alone - we all struggle with imposter syndrome, self-doubt, and our own inner gremlins (that don't go away!).

So how do you keep cranking out content?

I talk about all of it on this week's episode. I'll see you inside! xo, Janeen



[00:00:00] Janeen: Well, hey you guys. Welcome back to another episode. This is episode 123, How to Be Consistently Creative. What I wanted to share with you today is, How to create consistently without burning yourself out.

[00:00:19] And there's several...

122. A Few Things About Me

Nov 17, 2022

I love listening to other podcasters, business mentors, authors, or people I follow on social media share a little bit about themselves.

When I listen or read about their lives, it creates a deeper connection and I feel like we’re friends.

So this week, despite this being *slightly* uncomfortable for me, I decided to pull back the curtain a little bit on my life and share a few things. Like the craziest thing I’ve ever done, my most embarrassing moment, what Merrill and I fight about… you know, things you might be wondering about, but not what I usually talk about on the podcast.

It’s a fun episode and I hope you enjoy it. xo, Janeen



[00:00:00] Janeen: Well, hey there, you guys. Welcome back to another episode of the podcast. I am really excited to be hanging out with you guys today. I am Janeen Alley, and today I'm gonna be sharing just a few little things about me that you may or may not know already....

121. Becoming Peacefully Productive with √Član Eddington

Nov 10, 2022

Dealing with the 5th flood this year - on top of being a CSA farmer, a doula, being a mom to 5 (including one who was in a significant accident at the beginning of the summer and was in a wheelchair) - Elan has something to say about becoming peacefully productive.

In this week's episode, she talks about her journey, what she’s let go of, and how she’s said no…

….to create more time, space, and peace in her life.

I loved this conversation and I know you will too!

Enjoy! xo, Janeen

120. How to Simplify the Holidays for a More Peaceful Season

Nov 03, 2022

We all have holiday ideals of lazy afternoons stringing popcorn with our kids, cozying up by the fire with a feel good classic, and wrapping beautifully styled presents while your favorite holiday music plays in the background.

How does that dream turn into freezing your toes off in your fancy shoes for your spouses holiday party you don't even want to attend, wrapping presents until 2am and waking up to be the Grinch, and wearing yourself out baking and cooking food that doesn't even make you feel good all in the name of tradition?

This week's podcast episode is all about how to simplify your holidays to create more of your ideal life over the next couple months.

Join me inside this episode as I share ways I've cut back on the hustle and bustle of the season to actually enjoy yourself.

Enjoy! Janeen

119. Lower the Bar and Still Be Awesome

Oct 27, 2022

There isn't a person on the planet that is capable of doing ALL the things. The truth is you can do ANYTHING, you just can't do everything - at least not all at once. 

We are fed this idea that we can "have it all" in our culture, but the trade-off for trying to live that way is inevitable exhaustion, not to mention the frustration that comes from feeling like the watered-down efforts we put into too many things isn't giving us the results we want in anything.  Have you ever felt that way?!  I have many times! 

One of my secret weapons to combat the societal pull to do too much is to lower the bar and still be awesome. This is not about dropping the ball (which is so easy to do when you're overbooked and overwhelmed) - this is all about intentionally scaling back on things that you once thought were important to have the time to do what's truly important. 

Like having photo-worthy, plant-based, 3-course meals (yes, I did this since I was...

118. The Dos and Don'ts to Making Your Needs a Part of the Mix

Oct 20, 2022

One of the things I’ve heard moms say is, “with all the things I juggle from my kids’ schedules, my work, running my household, and trying to stay on top of basic things without feeling behind and overwhelmed, I have no idea how to make my own needs and wants a part of the mix.”

If you can relate, this week’s podcast is for you! I share some tips from my own life on how to make this happen - even with everything you have on your plate.

I’ll see you inside! xo, Janeen



[00:00:00] Janeen: Well, hey you guys, welcome back to another episode of the podcast. I am Janeen Alley, and as always, I am super excited to be with you guys. So we were talking about the dos and don'ts to making your needs a part of the mix today on the podcast. This topic has been on my mind, but I was just on the phone with my sister-in-law who I love very much, and one of the things that she said when I...

116: 3 Sneaky Shoulds You Should Kick to the Curb

Oct 06, 2022

Do you ever tell yourself “you should get the dishes done” as you're sitting on the couch trying to relax

… or "you should be grateful" when you're super frustrated with your kids.

This week we’re talking about some sneaky ways ‘should’ sneaks into our vernacular and keep us stuck.

And more importantly, I’m also sharing how to change the conversation to feel more motivating and empowering.

115. Stop Using Your Goals Against Yourself

Sep 29, 2022

Do you ever want to give up on your goal because you feel like you’ll NEVER get there (so why bother)?

We often have so much shame and pain around reaching a goal we talk ourselves out of it.

We tell ourselves we’re just fine the way we are - we’re supposed to love ourselves anyway right?

If you’re doing this, you have to listen to this week’s episode! We talk about how you can actually ENJOY and love yourself all along the way toward your amazing goal.

Stop giving up on yourself! Your dreams, wants, and desires are more important than you may realize (I cover that too!).

Enjoy! xo, Janeen



[00:00:00] Well, Hey, you guys welcome back to another episode of the podcast. It is early in the morning for me. I am getting this podcast recorded before I head to the gym today. And it is a little bit eerie outside here in Colorado. It is foggy and misty and rainy and this is not our norm. So it's a little spooky.
