An entrepreneur, designer, and now blogger, Courtney Bingham is taking Hollywood by storm. Starting as a model at 17, Bingham has since launched her clothing line "Cover-ups", has a very popular blog on style, and is producing her first feature film. We will talk to Bingham about her busy career and her way of styling on a dime.
ENVISION THIS: “Enhancing the natural flow of carbons to soil will result in increased microbial diversity, improved nutrient cycles, expanded water holding capacity, greater resilience, improved ecosystem health, and a more satisfying, profitable future for farmers and ranchers”…and, as a co-benefit, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere!
In Grass, Soil, Hope, A Journey through Carbon Country our guest, Courtney White explores the multiple ways CO2, when sequestered in soil, can become our ally instead of our enemy. Here’s just some of the food for thought offers us:
“Carbon is not ‘the bad guy’—carbon is part of our essence. Its story needs to be told and heard. It is our past, present, and future. It is our story. It is the story of grass. The story of green. The color of hope.”
“Every living thing above ground—whether it’s hairy vetch, a mighty ponderosa pine, an elusive coyote, an endangered bird, a busy beaver, or an equally busy human being—depends on the vast universe of life in the soil…and at the heart of this micro world is carbon, the glue that holds the web together.”
“The Greenhorns are the new alchemists. Carbon and glomalin are the new alchemy. Food is the new gold.”
“Art, harmony, beauty, aesthetics—as perceived by us—are all signs of health in nature and ourselves…The principles that made a practice restorative and regenerative were the same ones that made it beautiful.”
“We don’t need to wait for something new under the sun to come along to restore the land and ourselves to health. It’s here.”
Join Courtney and us in exploring these hopeful observations for which Michael Pollan wrote a foreword.

SHOW NOTES: This episode is the debut of this new series (COURTNEY! I AM CURIOUS) and the show topic is, "Aren’t You Scared Traveling All Around The World As A Woman?"
I struggle with this question as I don't think of myself as any different from anyone else. So, I don't dream in gender, or age, or nationality, or any other individual trait. I simply dream. Then, I do. To me this question is like asking me, "Aren’t You Scared Traveling All Around The World As A 63 inch (1.6 meters) tall human? I am aware of my height but it is not something that I think about in terms of stopping me from traveling. Of course, there may be some instance where I am too short to reach something (and then I ask for help from a person or for a ladder). There are certainly cultural norms that I must be aware of and respect as I travel (in the US and everywhere else). We all have to do this so I don't think that it is a unique burden for me.
1) Why do I travel?
Because I want to. I travel for work and for the pleasure of seeing my planet. This is my planet just as it is your planet. Why shouldn't we explore as much of it as we are able to (and desire to)? When I travel for work it is because I want to work and I want to learn as much as I am able to in order to provide my clients, students, business partners, investors and you with accurate information. The world is 'out there' so if I choose to stay in one location and miss out on learning about what is happening it will be my loss and a deficiency in my ability to address international business solutions.
Watching a television show about someone eating an apple is not the same as me eating an apple in real life. I need to experience real life to be able to provide real solutions in my work. I al
SHOW NOTES: This series is designed for the statistically rare, yet often overlooked, self-employed individual who marches to their own drummer and loves it! This is not a series for people who want to consider future self-employment (aspiring) and how to become self-employed. This is a series for existing self-employment individuals. A very small number of people are self-employed ‘full-time’ (not the best term but it does convey the intended meaning).
How are we defining self-employed in this series?
Definition of Self-employed -
": earning income directly from one's own business, trade, or profession rather than as a specified salary or wages from an employer”
Self-employed. (n.d.). Retrieved August 4, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/self-employed
There is a very different professional situation for a self-employed person who operates as their own safety net. No guaranteed paycheck, no benefits. Self-employment is a joy for those who value autonomy and possess high levels of self-discipline. From Bloomberg Businessweek, “self-employed people are happier with their jobs than the wage-employed. According to the Pew report, "Nearly four-in-ten self-employed workers (39%) say they are 'completely satisfied' with their jobs, compared with 28% of all wage or salaried employees." This is consistent with earlier studies showing that, in a wide range of countries, a higher percentage of the self-employed are satisfied or very satisfied with their jobs than the wage employed.” (http://www.businessweek.com/smallbiz/content/apr2010/sb2010041_151187.htm)
Why are we referring to the series as self-employment ecstasy?
Because the data shares that this group (self-e
SHOW NOTES: This specific episode is, “I am financially comfortable! How do I stop that from making me complacent?”
Is it a “real problem” for someone to worry about being complacent if they have financial resources?
Have you ever known about a person with wealth who hurt themselves (or even self-destructed)? Abuse of alcohol, drugs, food. Addictions. Greed. Being victimized by people. We know the story so well. It is partially due to the challenges that we face when we accomplish financial stability. We forget, in our quest to surpass our goals, to examine how our lives will change after we accomplish what we set out to do! How will our options and daily decisions change once we live out our dreams? What do we do afterwards?
Striving for financial independence takes up an enormous amount of time and energy (budgeting, working, saving, planning, commuting, visualizing, sacrificing, etc.). Once we achieve it, how do we adjust to all of the time and energy that we now have available? When we no longer “have to” work for income, will we? When we have the financial resources available for our current situation, short term and long term goals (and those of our descendants and/ or charities, etc.), how do we fill our days? How do we fill our dreams? Do we stop dreaming? Do we...

SHOW NOTES: Our episode today is, “Is The Size of Your Vocabulary Limiting The Size of Your Paycheck?”
Whoa! Do words matter that much? I was teased as a kid in school for "using big words" and "reading too much" (it was not fun being teased and taunted). I have a lifelong love of words and reading. I was not popular when I was growing up, especially when I would rudely "correct" people for using or pronouncing words inaccurately (so don't do this!). I am naturally biased to want to believe that all of the teasing had a silver lining and that there is a benefit to having larger vocabularies. That does not mean it is true, just that I would love for it to be true as it would make me feel better. So, as we discuss in many of our programs, what does the data tell us?
Why is vocabulary important (for my income)?...

SHOW NOTES: This is our EDUCATORS’ EDEN™ series wherein we explore the paradise that the most passionate, creative and committed educators create for themselves, their students, peers, administrations and institutions! This episode is, “Why Don’t Students Read…the Syllabus, Assignment Instructions, My Email, etc.?”
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela
It is exciting when we educators create and disseminate the tools to enable out students to succeed! We are eager for them to enjoy learning new content, to enlarge their vision of the world and to uncover their hidden talents via our course. Our intention is for them to have every available opportunity to prepare, plan and provide their best quality work! This drives us to provide clarity and communication to make their tasks as well defined as possible. What is required, when it is required, how it should be submitted, where it should be submitted, how it will be evaluated and graded, when it will returned to them, etc., are all important details that we want them to have by the start of the course! Thus, they will be able to plan ahead to achieve all of their academic goals in conjunction with all of their other responsibilities throughout the course term.
We are in a constant improvement process to enhance and improve our syllabus, assignments, instructions, class communications, etc., to make them clearer and more comprehensive. Ideally, our students will be able to use these documents as guides to ensure that they understand all of the requirements and are meeting their own individual academic goals.
The most pristine and powerful documentation is useless if it is not acc
SHOW NOTES: Our episode today is, "GO BIG or GO HOME! (Except for with people, money and health.)"
You are the type of person who gets the job done! People admire your tenacity, focus and intensity! You are squared away and run a tight ship. You live life to the fullest and you work and play with glee and exuberance! You don’t have any regrets as you have left no stone unturned in ensuring your life is better than your dreams. In fact, you are often the person who is asked to handle the most intense and challenging work projects. Other people trust that your seemingly inexhaustible resources of energy and determination can make the impossible, possible. You love the big risk, big reward action!
No safety net, no submission to fear. You are addicted to the adrenaline rush of the biggest adventures in life. Start a business from scratch with no money, no connections and no credit? No problem. You are a believer in what is achievable with a well planned strategy and sheer will driving the execution plan. You have been rewarded for this zeal and extraordinary focus in work, in competition and in your personal pride in surpassing your goals!!
In fact, you often are confused by what you perceive to be the lack of desire and dedication in other people (‘how can they stomach giving such a half-hearted effort?!’). When you show up to the game of life, you come to win. You give everything that you have to everything that you do and you leave it all out on the field. These traits have served you well professionally, financially and in many aspects, psychologically. You are able to immerse yourself in your tasks and truly feel alive and inspired the majority of the time!
What could possibly be the problem with this fired up, passionate, aut
If you're like me, your initial reaction to the title of this show was probably, "Ew, gross, no thank you!". But hold on! Consider sitting tight and listening to this episode. What if your hormones regulate really quickly and you don't have any of that pesky postpartum depression? What if you have a lot of energy, even with those first sleepless nights? What if it improves lactation? What if you just feel much better? These are what many women report after trying this therapy, many of them having used it on their second pregnancy and have their first as a point of comparison. Tune in to have doula and placenta encapsulator Courtney Scott tell you all about it! Maybe it won't sound so icky afterall.
