Imposter syndrome holding you back? Do you get anxious to hit the record button? Is your perfectionism messing with your flow?

TJ Lavin and I Have A Podcast: Stamina, Setbacks & Support

Monday Oct 04, 2021

TJ Lavin, host of MTV's hit-series The Challenge, joins us on this action-packed episode of IHAP! In forging our friendship, TJ completely disarmed me when he nonchalantly and respectfully brought attention to my sexuality in a good-humored and loving manner. With TJ, I knew I had an ally. He treats those around him with dignity and camaraderie, which is probably why he shines as host of a show that pushes people to their physical, mental, and emotional edges. TJ breaks the mold (and sometimes a few body parts) with his wild spirit, committed work ethic, and fun-loving personality. In this episode of I Have A Podcast, TJ opens up about overcoming obstacles, how he landed his dream job, the ongoing work of growth and success, and how pushing yourself to your learning edge will make you MORE CREATIVE!  You will never know what you are capable of until you reach for it, just don't quit.   MUSIC IN THIS EPISODE WAS COMPOSED & CREATED BY TJ LAVIN.   TJ LAVINInstagram: www.instagram.com/tjlavin/ Cameo: www.cameo.com/tjlavin VINNIE POTESTIVOLinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/vinniepotestivoInstagram: www.instagram.com/vinniepotestivoClubhouse: www.joinclubhouse.com/@vinniepotestivo I HAVE A PODCAST:Instagram: www.instagram.com/ihaveapodcastYouTube: www.youtube.com/vpetvEpisodes, show notes & transcripts: www.ihaveapodcast.com   Connect with IHAP: ihap@vpetalent.comVinnie's Services: www.vpetalent.com > LEAVE US A REVIEW: www.ratethispodcast.com/ihap

Mandy Moore and I Have A Podcast: Self-authority, Trust, and Asking for Help

Tuesday Sep 07, 2021

Joining me on this episode of I Have a Podcast is my longtime friend, actress, singer, songwriter, production company owner, who knows what’s like to be a working mother in Hollywood, Mandy Moore! We talk about work-life balance and how she has used many forms of media to help build her brand, claim her narrative, and empower her audience to make an impact.  Mandy shares her own challenges when it comes to making yourself small, and the journey of embarking on unchartered territory as she broke into an industry she had no experience in at a very young and impressionable age.  Claiming your self-authority is a process. It takes trust, it takes time, and often, it takes defiance.    MANDY MOOREWeb: www.mandymoore.comInstagram: www.instagram.com/mandymooremm VINNIE POTESTIVOLinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/vinniepotestivoInstagram: www.instagram.com/vinniepotestivoClubhouse: www.joinclubhouse.com/@vinniepotestivo I HAVE A PODCAST:Instagram: www.instagram.com/ihaveapodcastYouTube: www.youtube.com/vpetvEpisodes, show notes & transcripts: www.ihaveapodcast.com   Connect with IHAP: ihap@vpetalent.comVinnie's Services: www.vpetalent.com > LEAVE US A REVIEW: www.ratethispodcast.com/ihap

Happy Jack and I Have A Podcast: Youth Culture & Mental Health

Tuesday Sep 07, 2021

Happy Jack was founded by Jack Nathan, as a “nod to everyone who feels trapped in their mind, and a reminder to do precisely what is important to you. Otherwise, you'll end up being normal and normal is boring." Unfortunately, Jack left us suddenly and accidentally on July 3, 2020 at the age of 19. His passing was unrelated to mental illness. Jack was a survivor. Not a victim. He left behind a legacy of perseverance and a company that lives on through the work of this family and the community he built. His parents, Bradi Harrison & David Nathan, have stepped in to run their son’s company, in his legacy, in his honor, and in his shadow. As a cause-driven brand on a mission, Happy Jack donates a portion of every sale to nonprofits devoted to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health.    In this episode of IHAP, I connect with Jack’s parents, Bradi Harrison & David Nathan, to talk about running their retail business, mental illness, and their experiences working with college ambassadors.
