On this episode of Monetize the Mic, Jess got the chance to speak with Dr. Joli Hamilton about trust and non-monogamy!
Joli is a research psychologist, an AASECT certified sex educator, TEDx speaker, and a sex + relationship coach. She holds a doctorate in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She has spent many years working directly with clients helping them improve their relationship skills and is also a professor of human sexuality.
Over the past two decades, she has started a dozen business ventures ranging from clothing design to personal training to providing birth and lactation doula services, all while managing her own relationships, pursuing her graduate degrees, and raising and homeschooling seven kids.
Joli has felt those wild highs and terrible lows that come with business ownership, marriage, divorce, and reinventing love from the bottom up. She is committed to helping people create sustainable, soul-nourishing relationships without sacrificing their business dreams.
Joli shared how she wasn’t raised to trust herself and that it took serious, conscious work to change that. It wasn’t until she recognized a pattern of starting a successful business, and then bailing four years in when business was booming. Once she noticed the pattern started to affect other aspects of her life, she made some changes.
“I was able to commit myself to a Ph.D. program. I was able to commit to my marriage. It really has been a process of learning to trust me in love and say yeah, I can show up for myself.”
