In this episode of Adulting with Ebonie (the last of season 1), I’m chatting with Jo Casey about Feminine Conditioning.

Jo helps coaches and healers to get more clients without sacrificing soul or sanity. She’s a certified coach, speaker, trainer and host of the meaningful business podcast. In addition to being British, Jo is slightly nerdy and determined to help women overcome their female conditioning so that we can step out, be seen and thrive.

You can find her online and on social media at:

Fav quotes from this episode:

“Adulting is owning my own shit, emotionally’

“We’re given a skewed and limited view of what ‘good’ femininity is”

“As a woman you are made of magic. What are you going to do with it?”

“Sometimes we tie up the money that we charge with our own personal value”

“Magic is priceless… or at least worth the cost of a two week holiday!”

“Feminine Conditioning is just propaganda!”

“The human race needs a huge wave of creative problem solving and empathy. We’ve got some big shit to sort out!”

“I love men. I love masculinity in its rawest form.”

“One of the scary things about running your own business is the fact that you get to make the rules!’”

“I’m an adult but I cry and feel like I’m 6 years old when I have to look at my tax return”

In this episode we talk about:

  • The importance of wildness, creativity, playfulness and childlike curiosity in our lives.
  • How it’s only when we take control of our own emotional responses that we can move through life responsibly, without dumping our shit on other people! (as much as possible)
  • The difference between ‘responsible’ feminine and ‘irresponsible’ feminine, and between being ‘responsible’ and being a ‘good girl’.
  • How we can relate Elsa from ‘Frozen’ to our own lives and conditioning.
  • How we’ve been conditioned to associate creative and caring professions with a lower financial value than some other professions, like sport, law or science, which are perceived as more pragmatic/logical/data driven roles with a more ‘masculine’ energy.
  • The importance of recognising the value that you can provide, and the transformation that you can facilitate in others.
  • How when we’re talking about feminine conditioning, we’re not just talking about women – men have feminine energies too, and have also been conditioned.
  • That we’re not always aware of conditioning taking place
  • How working 9-5, Monday to Friday was set up for some men based on their cycle.  This ‘model’ of business doesn’t work for all of us though. We’ve got the freedom to design something that works for us!

Plus, we talk about what the number one skill you need as a business owner is.
