The Simplifiers Podcast banner/post image

Q: how are you beginning to reorient after this big life transition of COVID-19? Change is afoot and we’re either white knuckling the ride, grasping for control or starting to lay down the foundation now for our new life ahead.

My special guest today is author Stephenie Zamora and she’s simplifying how to reorient after a big life transition. Her book, “Unravel: Rising Up and Coming Back from a Season of Living that Damn Near Killed Me” is the focus for today’s conversation and I hope it brings you new insight for your own life.

Let’s face it… for some of us, we are smack dab in the middle of our ‘dark night of the soul’ right now and we all could use a little hope.


My special guest today is Stephenie Zamora and she’s simplifying how to reorient after a big life transition.

We tackle all aspects of it, including:

  • Her personal story of what happened when the unexpected death of a former boyfriend quickly spiraled into the loss of her business, her life as she knew it, her closest relationships, and her entire sense of self
  • How to balance the big emotions and feelings that come with big change
  • Uncover the wisdom that can be found by tapping into your anger and how to use this energy and insight for good
  • What the first steps are to uncover the true purpose of your path
  • How to rise up and come back to ‘do the impossible’ after a traumatic thing has happened

Stephenie’s story is inspirational and I really loved chatting with her. Wherever you are in the world right now, I hope this conversation brings you a little peace and knowing that true transformation comes from sitting in the unknown and giving yourself permission to surrender to this chapter of your life. Your next steps will be illuminated bright.

Keep going!
