Today I'm sharing my favorite podcast at the moment: Soul on Fire. I've been listening nonstop for the past week and I'm in love with Jordan Younger (AKA The Balanced Blonde) and what she stands for. Her podcast episodes are always interesting, inspiring, and unique (she featured an animal communicator)! If you're interested in health, blogging, yoga, etc. definitely tune into her podcast which is free on iTunes.
I wanted to ask Jordan a few questions you so all could get to know here a little better, so I popped her an email and she responded so quickly!
MLA: What was the scariest (or most exciting) thing about starting your blog, and later making the decision to blog full time?
TBB: The scariest thing was... nothing!! I wasn't scared at all which is probably a testament to how perfectly aligned blogging ended up being for my personality and my passions! As far as deciding to blog full-time, the only scary thing was whether I'd be able to pull it off AND still love it as much as I did when it was just my hobby. Happy to say, YES I still love it and yes I have pulled if off (so far)!!
MLA: What is your favorite thing about podcasting?
TBB: Getting to connect and share with my amazing audience in a whole new way that feels so much more personal and connected. I feel like people have gotten to know me on a much deeper level, which has always been my goal as a blogger so it feels very special and sacred. I can't wait to see where it goes!
MLA: If you could be on any podcast, which one would you choose?
TBB: Oh wow, what a cool question. This might be a surprising answer, but I would love to be on Stassi Schroeder's podcast because she is hysterically funny and I think our extreme contrast between the type content we share would make for a cool episode!! I would also love to be on Dave Asprey's because he is a longtime idol of mine, and soon I'll be on mindbodygreen's new podcast which I am very excited and honored about!
MLA: If you could do yoga with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
TBB: Probably Yogi Bhajan, the yogi who brought Kundalini yoga to the west. I would love to see him rock his vinyasa, and to soak in his knowledge and good vibes would be simply epic. On that note, all of my ancestors would be pretty dang cool to yoga with. I have some ancestors who were in Jesse James' gang back in the day... THEY would be cool to meet. They could probably use some yoga!
MLA: If you could do yoga anywhere in the world, where would you go?
TBB: BALI! I can't wait to go there for my first time in December.
MLA: What is one piece of advice you would give to someone who wants to "set their soul on fire," but doesn't know where to begin?
TBB: Follow your gut. Trust your intuition. It always knows the way. And don't be too hard on yourself, nothing huge or deeply meaningful happens overnight!
