Today I’m excited to have founder, creative, podcaster, writer, entrepreneur, all the things… Matt Gottesman. Matt soulfully aligns culture, creativity, spirituality, and entrepreneurship to help people live with intention and step into greater soul alignment.

In this episode, we explore the beautiful yet challenging path of what it means to walk your soul’s path with honesty, integrity, and trust at the forefront. Learn how to identify when your intuition is speaking, where it’s leading you, and how to get out of your own way so that your relationship with yourself and your relationships with others can expand in greater clarity and with less friction. Join us for this spiritual, relational jam session with mind-blowing AHA moments!  


  • How to tell the difference between intuition and fear
  • The life-changing practice of  being radically honest with yourself and others
  • Why we can have whatever we want when we play with clarity, consistency, leadership, honesty, integrity, and knowing who we are
  • How being in alignment with one’s true self leads to healing and growth, both internally and externally
  • The importance of running your own race and letting your relationship expand you by stepping out of the way of your partner’s greatest alignment
