Episode 27: Shattering Societal Labels: Lana Chairez on Stripping, Comedy & Authenticity

Hey Fit & Frugal Tribe! 

Have you ever imagined the behind-the-scenes stories a stripper might have about the Secret Service?

I'm so f*cking stoked I get to sit down with the one and only Lana Chairez – she's a stand-up comedian, host of the “Laughing with Lana” podcast, a former stripper, and an engineer, all rolled into one! She's not just funny; she's a powerhouse with a story that flips the script on societal norms.

Lana and I dive deep into what it means to live authentically in a world that's constantly trying to box us in as we ripe off the societal labels and diving into what it really means to chase your own version of happiness.

Here's the scoop: It's not all about fitting into the box society has built for us. Lana's past as a stripper? It's a part of her story that challenges every stereotype and judgment you've ever heard.

We get real about the entertainment industry and hospitality world, where external perceptions often clash with internal happiness. Lana shares how her past as a stripper shaped her identity and perception in society on labels and judgment.

From t*ts to titles, we reflect on the pursuit of authenticity and how societal status often overshadows our true selves.

In the world of self-improvement, we sometimes have to ask ourselves….”When you feel that you have to do something to better yourself, are you bettering it for yourself, or are you bettering yourself for society? Because there's a difference.”

This episode isn't just a conversation; it's an experience! Lana and I prove that laughter can be the best way to cope with life's challenges and how we turn some of our traumas into humorous ways to connect with others.

At the end of the day, “Just be happy. You yourself need to be happy. Don't please other people, because that shit, you're going to live a fucked up and horrible, miserable fucking life.”

Ask yourself this: Are you living your truth, or just following society's script?

If you found a piece of yourself in our stories, or had a good laugh during your journey of authenticity and breaking societal molds, don't stop here.
