EP. 50 Takeaways From The Rise Conference [part 1]

[EP. 50] a sunny side up life podcast thumbnail.png

Rachel Hollis + her Rise Weekends have become world-renowned and I recently had the opportunity to attend the conference for myself. I learned so much during my couple of days in Dallas and I couldn’t wait to share my light-bulb moments, the quotes I wrote down in my notebook, and the exercises that made me cry. In the first part of this episode I’m digging into everything we worked on during “Day One: Owning Your Past”, and next week we’ll continue this conversation with “Day Two: Owning Your Future”.


In this episode, I share about:

  • My trip to Dallas Rise

  • Takeaways from Day 1

  • Thoughts on owning your past

  • Takeaways from Rachel Hollis, Jen Hatmaker, + Trent Shelton

Memorable Quotes:

“Life is happening for you, not to you.” -Rachel Hollis

“Your current situation is not your final destination.” -Trent Shelton

“Purpose is not an external thing, it’s an internal gift.” -Trent Shelton

“I don’t know how to do it yet.”

“Failure is proof that you’re trying.”
