The eXcessive and a Little eXtra podcast is for the Gen-X woman! We talk with Gen-X women who are living their dreams and other women who have information that will help listeners live lives that are fuller and more complete. Host Karyn Beach eXplores and entertains through conversations with eXceptional women. You want to talk about it? We will. Want to have fun while doing it? We'll do that too!

If it concerns you, if you've been wondering about it, if it inspires or motivates, if it informs, you'll find it on this podcast.

  • Would you survive a zombie apocalypse?
  • What fears are holding you back?
  • Is health more than physical?

These questions (and maybe more) will be answered on this episode of the Fun. Feisty. Fabulous! podcast.

I came late to The Walking Dead party. Over the summer, I caught up on six seasons so I’d be all caught up when Season 7 started. I’ve been watching it weekly; but I have to admit, I don’t think I’m cut out to be a zombie apocalypse survivor and I’ll tell you why.

Tawanna Kelley is one of my Fab Femmes (you can catch those episodes every month). However, she’s also a motivational speaker who specializes in leadership training and on helping people overcome fear. She talks about the fears we have and what we can do to overcome them. It’s time to make your dreams come true and you don’t have time to let fear stop you.

Finally, it is hard to feel fabulous if you don’t feel your best. Yet, health is more than physical. Taking care of your emotional and mental health is just as important. I share my story of suicide and depression to drive home the point that you are never too old, and it is never too late to seek emotional or mental health. It’s time to end the mental health stigma and embrace all facets of our health.
