Nikki St. John Talks Pole Dance Nation, Twerk Werks LA, and Running a Successful Pole Studio

Nikki St JonLet’s talk Nikki St. John.

About a year ago, Nikki launched an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign to raise money to print hard copies of her book and to promote it on a large scale. After failing miserably, she decided to try it again – from a different angle.

That’s when she began posting pictures of her favorite pole tricks on Instagram. It was a desperate attempt to gain some publicity for her book. She never dreamed it would turn into a community of avid pole addicts who actually wanted to be featured on her page. She never thought pole icons like Anastasia Skukhtorova, Jamila Deville or Sarah Scott Pole would be part of her pole community. She didn’t think she could actually make an impact on the world of pole dance.

But sometimes the plans God has for us are bigger than what we could have ever imagined.

Pole Dance Nation has become more than just a book series. It’s an active, vibrant community of aerial artists who want to grow, be challenged and recognized for their achievements. We are excited to be part of the pole movement want to continue to push pole dance to its’ limits.

Nikki and I discussed:

  • Her book, Pole Dance Nation, and its origins
  • The intersection of pole dance, sensuality, and stigma
  • Our views on Christianity, God, and free will
  • How success starts in the mind before it’s physically realized
  • Struggles with the pole dance community being taken seriously
  • Challenges of working with pole fitness studios as consultants

Nikki and I connected on so many topics, mainly because our interests and experiences are parallel. It was nothing short of amazing to connect with such an ambitious, likeminded woman.

Meryl Ranzer Talks Sensual Ecstasy, Laughing Pussies, and Art

Meryl1Meryl Ranzer is a pleasure maven and relationship expert with an explicit focus on sensual ecstasy. Her career has never been less than extraordinary; she’s been everything from a top flight fashion designer to visual and performance artist, as well as a creative consultant, an instructor at Parsons and FIT, and super-fitness junkie. The world changing movement she leads, Laughing Pussies, is focused on outrageous, fearless, eye-opened living and people being all that they are meant to be. She lives happily in NYC with her two loves: her husband and son.

Meryl and I discussed:

  • Laughing Pussies, and its mission to help women reclaim their sensuality
  • Why men are trapped within the confines of masculinity and masculine gender roles
  • How women are sexually objectified against their own right to pleasure
  • How Orgasmic Meditation (OM) helped her become sexually irresistible to her husband
  • How her financial energy and relationship to money shifted in relation to developing her sensuality
  • The importance of art for expression and social activism

Although not completely planned, this podcast happened on the heels of the violent police shooting in Dallas after a week of protests and activism. Meryl and I do discuss this in our show, with hopes to help us all understand violence is a symptom, not an answer.

Dr. Michelle Mazur Discusses the Power of Speaking

dr michelle mazur sexyfocusedambitious podcastDr. Michelle Mazur sees herself as a “doula for your speech.” She helps clients design speeches that allow them to share their message for impact and clients without “selling from the stage.”

Michelle and I connected after reading a great post in which she breaks down the intense methods other speakers, entrepreneurs, and business people use to manipulate audiences into buying products and services they otherwise wouldn’t have any interest in.

If you’ve ever been to a business event or conference, only to experience the slimy feel of a speaker who sends people “running to the back of the room right now” to purchase a $500, $1000, or even $10,000 product, you’ll want to listen in.

Lauryn Doll Talks Being an Intelligent Outcast, Owning Sexuality in Her Brand, and the Recipe to the Process

Lauryn Doll 2015headshotYou know me as the voice behind Sexy Focused Ambitious, but who the hell am I – Lauryn Doll – and where did I come from?

I’m a brand strategist who uses copywriting, expression, media, and sexual energy to create a brand for you that’s sexy by nature.

My clients tend to be men and women who are sexual, sensual, athletic, primal, and love money, sex, life, and God. They’re hustlers by nature, they never give up – and they don’t know anything else besides their passion.

In this episode, I’m a guest on The Professed Word, hosted by Professor JT and Aleasa Word. The conversation was interesting. We discussed sexualization of youth, writing erotic fiction, and where my drive comes from.

Kick back and listen.
