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.

What’s Your Excuse?

That’s the question today’s feisty guest, Maxwell Ivey answers every week on his podcast. While completely blind, Maxwell is a successful businessman, blogger, author, and most recently podcaster. His inspirational life is a testament to wat happens when you leave the excuses behind. Maxwell talks about his journey, how to move through doubt and how small actions can lead to big results! We met when I interviewed him on my previous podcast and became fast friends. I knew I had to have him as a guest on Fun. Feisty. Fabulous. Listen in as Maxwell talks about his latest adventure.

Website: – read his blog. It’s practical and motivational.
Email: – ask any question (even awkward ones) or just say hi!

Sometimes ranting can be fun. You get something off your chest and it can be fun to listen to someone else’s rants. In this spirit, I talk about a trip to the grocery store and what I encountered just trying to pick up two things. From walking the grocery store parking lot mile to doing someone else’s job all the way through environmental waste, maybe you can relate.

If you have another rant, click here or go to the Facebook page to add your five cents (we all know your opinion is worth more than two cents).


For the fabulous, we talk about what you can do after a long week to rest, relax, rejuvenate and reclaim your fabulous. We all know about a night out with the girls, an evening in with the partner but what else can you do? Let’s explore some other opportunities and one involves Jake the wonder dog (that’s him).
