Liv talks to Maria Volovik about how to stop feeling like you’re not enough and start living a better life.

Let’s talk about the lie of not enough. One way or other, we’ve all bought into our own version of this story. You aren’t smart enough. You’re not thin enough. You’re not rich enough. You’re not witty enough. You’re not enough, not enough, not enough.

It’s Satan’s soundtrack on a never-ending loop, deep in the recesses of your mind. It’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life, and the more self-awareness I build, the more I realize just how pervasive this thought pattern is.

Here’s the good news: it’s not true. You’re enough. You’ve always been enough. The trick is remembering.

It’s not easy to weed the “not enough” lie out of your life, but our guest Maria Volovik is helping Millennial fight it every day.

I’m so excited to share a brand new facet of the podcast: SAM Fam memberships! I’ve created a Patreon page for the show that allows listeners access to exclusive, member-only content, the ability to vote and provide opinions on show content, enter monthly giveaways, get discount on all SAM march, join live AMAs with me, and even have opportunities to be a guest on the show.

If you aren’t familiar with Patreon, it’s basically a platform where you contribute to your favorite creative projects, just like back in the day when people would sponsor artists and musicians so they could continue creating their art. For just $1 or $5 a month, you’ll be an exclusive member of the SAM Fam with elite access to a lot of goodies.

All of your contributions go toward ensuring I can continue to produce the show every week, as well as create more new content and grow the platform into more than just a podcast.

For example, here are some things I have planned:

  • a book that outlines 20 actionable ways people can use self-awareness techniques to shed old stories and behavior patterns that don’t serve to access their inner joy (I’ve already written it, in edits now)
  • an app related to the book
  • digital and in-person events
  • monthly giveaways of my favorite self-awareness resources
  • a call-in number for people to ask questions and get them answered by me or an expert
  • member-only episodes and video series…
  • and more!

I LOVE making this podcast and I know the message will help make the world a better place, but I need your help to make that happen.

To learn more and join the SAM Fam, visit For no more than $5, you can become a part of a movement Millennials and every other generation can be proud of.
