Jewelry designer Savannah Nicholson (Anahata Rae) stops by the podcast to talk about leaving Roseville, the law of attraction, renting a studio space in San Luis Obispo, how she turned a hobby into a business, making the kind of art that you would enjoy, growth mindset, creating space in your life for the universe, 127, finding a religion that works for her, controlling your reactive side, checking yourself daily, ownership, positive manipulation, whether we're in the bad place, maintaining a personal relationship with her cousin after he passed away, releasing negativity, being a work in progress, figuring it out-ish, and hanging out with Alec.

Business owner Ben Ayers swings by the podcast to talk about leaving Santa Maria based on an Excel spreadsheet, his exit plan to Seattle, how an Asperger's diagnosis helped him understand his father, how we came onto each other's radar, rebelling against his parents by only doing exactly what was expected of him and nothing more, how to get my dad to talk to me, why men stopped crying, annoying his band with another sad song, managing a tour for a band, whether I can be the next Mr. Rogers, the last time he wrote a song, occupation vs. recreation, wanting everyone to like you, friendly faces, sitting at home and reading the Thesaurus, starting a family church, the thought of going to Costco and being judged, doing a lot of nothing in Peru, calling himself an agnostic, disentangling gracefully, a near infinite dataset, trying to stop nonexistent confrontations, changing your mind at least once a day, and not needing to know what happens after this.
