Self Care is the Key to Self Love, Honestly Cat Podcast
I’m talking to Brittney Carmichael, whose life-long struggle with self-love had her 75lbs overweight, her career as a successful hairstylist had her overworking and her work/life balance was out of whack, and to top it off her mother had a massive stroke that she has now thankfully overcome.
During this testing time, she learned that beauty isn’t something to be found on the outside. Beauty, to her, is the ability to be your authentic self and shine from the inside.
Brittney is like my sister from another mother on the other side of the Atlantic who embodies and practices the same mission as myself with a unicorn twist and an American twang!
THIS IS ONE NOT TO BE MISSED!
Warning: This WILL empower you to step up and shine!

Brittney, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Empowering women wasn’t always my mission in life. 10 years ago when I started my hair salon OMGhairstyles my mission was to make women LOOK beautiful. But after years of listening to what women say about themselves, I’ve learned that confidence is a choice and REAL beauty begins within.
I didn’t know it at the time, but I was naturally coaching each woman that sat in my chair. Asking her what her passions were. Her dreams. Her desires. Shockingly, I realized that MOST women replied with “I don’t know what my passion is.” And that’s where I begin to help women discover who they really are and what they truly LOVE.
After doing some much-needed self-reflection, I decided to make some major changes in my life. I lost 75lbs with a vegan lifestyle, set firm boundaries with my clients at work, and then took my passion for empowering women online in 2016 and started my blog to inspire women to SHINE from the inside.
Struggling with years of “weight issues” and an “inner mean girl” who was constantly judging and criticizing myself, I TOTALLY know what it feels like being disconnected from your body and soul. My mission today involves empowering women to FEEL beautiful by learning to love their authentic self.
To help women achieve this seemingly hard task, I created Shine School, a 6-week online experience designed to help release the past, step into your Truth, and intentionally create a life you’re in love with!
Meet Brittney Carmichael of OMGhairstyles Luxury Vegan Hair Salon in Frisco, Texas
Let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Any road leading to your wildest dreams is never going to be a smooth road. If the road were smooth, you wouldn’t learn anything. On my wild ride, I’ve learned loads of wisdom from working behind the chair that range from how to react when a client takes off her top to what to do when someone’s hair catches on fire (that was an interesting one!) to how to really listen to what a woman is trying to tell you.
I’ve paid my way through school. I’ve followed my heart despite others doubting my dreams. I’ve learned how to put others first and actually be of service to them. I’ve learned to say “no”. I’ve learned the entrepreneur HUSTLE. I’ve learned that no matter how hard some days are, there’s nothing better than knowing you gave your best in each and every moment doing what you LOVE.
Living Open Podcast EP. #39: Unicorn of all things on coming back to who you really are, always being a spiritual journey and how to love yourself
Today, Brittney Carmichael is a psychic medium, life and business coach, tarot reader, and inspirational leader (or for short, a unicorn of all things!).
But she wasn’t always. When she was a kid, she was a young free spirit stuck in the middle of nowhere in Texas, who just wanted to get out. All she wanted was to move to New York, work in fashion, and be single for the rest of her life. She was different. She felt weird. She didn’t want to fit into the norm.
(As someone who grew up in the suburbs in Maryland and Delaware and all I ever wanted was to move to New York, this soooo resonated with me.)
She didn’t do any of those things. She married her soulmate at age 20, and her spiritual awakening all began with a mushroom trip. The moment that shifted everything for her was when she walked into her house on shrooms, looked at a photo of her and her husband on the wall, and said, “Who are those people? We are not those people.”
“MOST OF US HEAR OUR INNER VOICE BUT WILL YOU TRUST HER AND FOLLOW THROUGH AND TAKE THE ACTION?”
Things didn’t change overnight, but that was the beginning of everything.
In this episode, Brittney shares:
- The crazy, life-threatening story of how she finally learned to connect to her inner voice
- How she turned her inner mean girl into her biggest cheerleader and how you can too
- How to distinguish between the voice of your ego and the voice of your soul
- What self-love means to her, why it’s so important, and how she practices it
- The hypnosis experience that changed her life
- Her advice to anyone struggling with self-love
- How she discovered tarot and her relationship with the tarot today
- Her passion for helping women reawaken to their authentic life
- The key to bringing creative visions into the physical world
- Her advice for protecting your energy
Learning to Glow Interview with Brittney Carmichael
How did you first discover your psychic abilities?
I first discovered my psychic abilities while floating inside a sensory deprivation tank. Because your mind and body are so relaxed during this experience, your mind opens up to receive even more (psychic) information. I heard my father’s voice who had passed in 2008 say “I had to pass in the physical world to guide you from the spiritual world.” That was all he had to say and my curiosity was peaked!
I went to see a local psychic who told me “you have the gift” and suggested I buy myself some tarot cards. Funny enough, looking back, some part of me already KNEW, but these clues along the way definitely helped me to remember with confidence that we are ALL psychic.

Is something holding you back from giving tarot card readings?
Do you have some unanswered questions that you’re just not sure about and don’t know who to go to get real answers from?

I’ve teamed up with Zenned Out to answer all your tarot questions like where the heck to start, how to perform a reading for yourself and others, how to read objectively, and what to do when you get a “scary” card.

The Easy Breezy Way Magazine: 6 Keys to Tapping into Intuition
Ever notice how your mind is always moving? Thinking? Playing out scenarios?
Sometimes playing out fears and worries. And yet sometimes, in rare flashes, we have a moment of stillness – clarity – absolute KNOWING. An a-ha moment. Don’t you just LOVE those moments? It’s as if the Universe says, “Ok now here’s the truth, be quiet and listen, and then BAM – a flash of genius.
It’s those moments that I savor and search for. I searched high and low. Traveled the globe. Tried moving. (A few times.) Tried selling all my things. Tried every type of yoga. Even talked to some psychics. The truth is…”the answer” was NEVER out there.
It was when I stopped searching for those moments and started creating more space for them to make their way into my imagination that I began to get into the flow with life. Like a synchronistic dance with the Universe.
Looking for some self-love inspiration? Check out my Spiritual Entrepreneur podcast interview with Devi Adea.
In this episode, we talk about everything from loving yourself and your body, to travel, to alkalizing your body through plant-based living, to how to manage your weekly schedule to enjoy a great lifestyle as a spiritual entrepreneur.
Brit really brings home that we get to chose our life experiences moment by moment and we can always select that what brings us the most joy. That is how she chooses what goes on her calendar and it has played a big part in going from 75 pounds overweight to fully expressing her unique exceptional beauty and loving herself, shining from the inside as a healthy and radiant Spiritual Entrepreneur.
This episode is a great reminder to love yourself and to be yourself unapologetically!
Mindset Matters: How to Live an Authentic Life with Designed by Life
G E N U I N E. W A R M. E N E R G E T I C.
Just a few words that describe my next guest on Mindset Matters: Brittney Carmichael. Brit is an entrepreneur, blogger and motivational speaker who is known for her spiritual straight-talking style and ability to make women feel beautiful – inside and out.
You will not want to miss this interview that’s filled with honest discussions about authenticity, owning your truth and showing up in the world with courage and sass.
Brittney and I met via Instagram almost a year ago and ever since that time I’ve been watching her build an online business that’s supporting hundreds of women with a daily dose of genuine care and connection. There is something magical about Brit’s presence – almost ‘unicorn like’ – and I think you will understand what I mean once you watch this interview.
AUTHENTICITY AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN EXACTLY?
I’ve been fascinated by the concept of what it means to live an authentic life and how one goes about figuring it out for themselves. When I thought about inviting someone onto Mindset Matters to talk about this topic, Brit popped into my mind immediately. We dig deep and examine the role mindset plays in navigating this journey.
“We all have a gift but only a few of us ever explore it fully”, says Brit as we talk about courage and how to navigate change.
What I loved the most about this interview was the energy present between the two of us as we leaned into being spontaneous and free in our chat. Being able to share from an honest and genuine place requires a level of ease and trust and I feel like it really shines through. I hope you will find that too by watching this 35 minute video interview.
Blog Society Feature: How Health and Wellness Has Impacted My Entrepreneurial Journey
When you start down the path as an entrepreneur, you are sending a loud and clear signal to the universe that says, “Hey, I have a desire inside of me that is burning and I MUST take control and create [insert your desire here] for the world!”
What you might not realize is that YOU are choosing to tap into the personal power that each and every one of us has within. When that fire is activated, you feel like you’re jumping on a rocket ship to the moon with no seat belt! Seriously, the deep burning desire within can be unstoppable without taking a step back to reign it all in.
The entrepreneur mind says: GO! GO! GO! and that’s GREAT when you’re starting a self-made business and your creative juices are flowing and you can’t help but want to keep creating MORE & MORE content/services for your tribe. It can be a never-ending creative spiral. That’s how I KNOW health + wellness play a MAJOR role in being a successful entrepreneur.
Just as we are taking control of our business life, schedule, income, and creative outlet into the world – we MUST take control of our physical + mental well-being. Not only should we take control of our health, but we MUST make it a priority.
