In this interview I spoke with a former stripper. Yes, our guest for the latest ‘An Inspired Life’ podcast is a former stripper and she is sexy as hell, fierce, empowered and knows what she’s worth. I got to chat to the inspiring Joni B Hodson, now an alignment coach who helps women connect with their truth, about life. REAL LIFE. The messiness of life. We talked about what was running through her head the day she made the decision to become a stripper, how she took on a new identity when she did, how ‘Raven’ become high-class and sought-after, and how Joni B now uses what she learnt from that experience to help people to step into their own powerful truth. Because if you’ve been confident or empowered in any area of your life, you can transfer that embodiment to other areas of your life. Joni B shares that with us – but the best part is how we talked in a really raw way about the challenges and ups and downs and absolute messiness of the personal development journey and life in general.

Inspired takeaways include:

  • How we can transfer the energy we use to obtain success in one aspect of our life to all parts of our life
  • How even the messiest times in our lives are an important section in the story of our lives, and how these stories inspire others when we have the courage to share them
  • How we can still embrace every freakin’ aspect of ourselves even in a world where people judge each other constantly (and how to be okay with those judgments)
  • How to feel the painful emotions that come up without letting them pull us down
  • Why Joni B was (and sometimes still is) sabotaging her relationship with her beloved because she’s not used to being loved so well, and what we can learn from her experience
