In October 2020, Business Insider bought a majority stake in Morning Brew—a popular business newsletter with over 2.5 million subscribers—for a reported $75 million. At the time, Morning Brew cofounder Alex Lieberman was just a few years out of college. In this Taboo Tuesday, Alex talks to Dr. Emily about his complicated relationship with money and the growing anxiety it caused him following the successful deal with Business Insider.
In this Taboo Tuesday discussion, author, illustrator, and mental health advocate, Jordan Sondler, joins Dr. Emily to talk about what it was like going public about therapy and working on her mental health in her book, "Feel It Out: The Guide to Getting in Touch with Your Goals, Your Relationships, and Yourself." Sondler says that what started as an illustrated book for single people on how to survive a break-up turned into a book for every single person that covers many of life’s challenges from strengthening self-awareness to how to adopt a dog.
StudioPod co-founder Julian A. Lewis II joins Dr. Emily in this Emotional Push-Up to talk about our gut instincts. While it’s considered standard sage advice to ‘trust our gut,’ Dr. Emily says there’s more to it than that. Listen now to hear why she says we should all be a little more discerning about what our guts are telling us.
Do you have trouble accepting compliments (hint: most people do)? You might worry that you’ll come across as conceited if you do. Or maybe you’re so tough on yourself that compliments don’t resonate or feel genuine. In this Emotional Push-Up, Dr. Emily is joined by Emotional Fitness Instructor at Coa, Karin Gold, and shares a step-by-step method to help us all get a little more comfortable accepting compliments.
