076: Gabrielle Bernstein — Manifesting Your Dream Life 1920 1080 Chase Jennings

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could use your super powers to attract exactly what you want in life? Whether you are vying for that promotion, yearning to find love again, or praying for a child, you can manifest what you want. And my guest today can show you how.

I am thrilled to have with me New York Times bestselling author, international speaker, and spiritual junkie, Gabrielle Bernstein on my show.

In 2008, she founded, a social networking and mentoring website for women. She has worked as a public relations entrepreneur and is the founder SparkPlug Communications. She co-founded the Women’s Entrepreneurial Network, a non-profit professional organization that connects female entrepreneurs, and has written seven books including Add More Ing to Your Life, The Universe Has Your Back – Transform Fear to Faith, and most recently Super Attractor – Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams.

She’s been on a spiritual path in life. It all started with her sitting by her mother’s side, meditating in ashrams in upstate New York.

She turned to spirituality on and off throughout her teens and early twenties. She was a dabbler until her darkest hour. It was spirituality that saved her in October 2005, when she hit bottom and got sober.

The day she chose sobriety was the day she became a Spirit Junkie. She started soaking up spiritual principles, meditation practices and anything else that helped her get aligned with her true purpose: to be a source of love and inspiration in the world.

Her mission is to help you crack open to a spiritual relationship of your own understanding so that you can live in alignment with your true purpose, too!

There are many ways that Gabby can help you, no matter where you are on your spiritual path.

053: Eve Rodsky — Playing Fair As You Raise Your Kids 1024 512 Chase Jennings

Eve Rodsky is working to change society one marriage at a time with a new 21st century solution to an age-old problem: women shouldering the brunt of childrearing and domestic life responsibilities regardless of whether they work outside the home.

In her New York Times bestselling book Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live), she uses her Harvard Law School training and years of organizational management experience to create a gamified life-management system to help couples rebalance all of the work it takes to run a home and allow them to reimagine their relationship, time and purpose.

Eve Rodsky received her B.A. in economics and anthropology from the University of Michigan, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. After working in foundation management at J.P. Morgan, she founded the Philanthropy Advisory Group to advise high-net worth families and charitable foundations on best practices for harmonious operations, governance and disposition of funds. In her work with hundreds of families over a decade, she realized that her expertise in family mediation, strategy, and organizational management could be applied to a problem closer to home – a system for couples seeking balance, efficiency, and peace in their home. Rodsky was born and raised by a single mom in New York City and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband Seth and their three children.

014: Sue Groner — 101 Simple Strategies for Parenting with Sanity & Joy

014: Sue Groner — 101 Simple Strategies for Parenting with Sanity & Joy 1024 512 Chase Jennings

In my opinion, the most challenging facet to being a parent is wondering if you are making good decisions for your kids. Should I sleep train or not? How much screen time? Should I opt for a nanny or daycare? When are we doing away with bottles? When to start potty training? And these small problems evolve when we have tweens and adolescents who are faced with peer pressure, bullying, self esteem issues, keeping up with competitive academic environments, honing in on their passions, and being socially accepted. 

Sue Groner is founder of the Parenting Mentor, which provides on-site and virtual sessions for parents of toddlers through teens. As a University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School graduate and a former advertising executive, Groner uses her training in creative problem solving with her CLEARR methodology to help parents foster and maintain a more fulfilling and stress-free experience while in the trenches of day-to-day children. She lives in New York with her husband and two children. 

“One of the most frustrating aspects of parenting is that there is no school for it. You learn by doing.” -Dr. Elliot Barsh, Pediatrician

“Sue Groner’s parenting tips provide immediate access to wise and loving guidance that can help when navigating the many day to day challenges we encounter when raising children. Her big picture, common-sense approach offers parents a “tool box” that allows them to act from a position of confidence.”

007: Raegan Moya-Jones — How I Built a $100M Business After Becoming a Mom

007: Raegan Moya-Jones — How I Built a $100M Business After Becoming a Mom 1024 512 Chase Jennings

Raegan Moya-Jones

When you think of tissues, you think of Kleenex. When you think photocopy, you think of Xerox. And when you think swaddle blanket, you think of aden  + anais.

These companies have held the greatest market share for the products they manufacture, so much so, they’ve become part of our daily vocabulary as synonyms for their products. 

Shortly after a new mother gets wheeled into her recovery room after labor and delivery, she’s handed her newborn baby, who’s fresh and clean from the nursery, and gets a crash course on swaddling. Pediatricians, nurses, and trusted moms the world over swear by aden + anais, which are breathable, muslin blankets to swaddle your little one to sleep. 

Today I am honored to have with me, the powerhouse behind this iconic baby lifestyle brand, who is a serial entrepreneur, author, wife, mother to four daughters, and thought leader, Raegan Moya-Jones. 

Raegan Moya-Jones is the CEO and co-founder of aden + anais. She founded the company with an initial investment of $15,000 in start-up capital in 2003, and grew it to $100 million business. The company sells over 2,000 products in 68 countries and has clients like Beyonce, Jennifer Garner, DJ Khaled, Neil Patrick Harris, and the Duchess of Cambridge, to name a few. 

Raegan was named an Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2014 and aden + anais was named to the Crain’s New York Business “Fast 50” list for three consecutive years and was recognized for a 338% growth rate and reported revenue of $41.7 million in 2013.

Raegan most recently co-founded Saint Luna, a premium moonshine brand. 

She sits on the board of directors for Hopeland, a nonprofit created to pioneer innovative solutions and build new partnerships to prevent family separation, reunify children, and mobilize a movement of families to support children who are growing up outside of family care.

She is the author of “What it Takes: How I Built a $100 Million Business Against the Odds” and lives in Brooklyn with her husband and four daughters.
