I’m excited to start this journey with all of you. For the past four or five years, I’ve listened to podcasts nearly every day – on a range of topics from marketing to leadership to mediation to entrepreneurship. It is not uncommon for me to send messages to my friends and colleagues with links to an episode I think they would enjoy or help them in some way.
Late last year I realized I had been hiding, not intentionally but as part of my grieving process after my mother passed away from a nearly four-year journey with lung cancer. I wasn’t interested in writing my blog anymore (not that I was ever consistent with it but I had hoped to turn writing into a habit.) As I went into 2019, I knew I needed to make some changes – my mother would worry about me if I didn’t. To keep me motivated, my word of the year is Courage. And being courageous means doing things that pushed my comfort zone, put me into situations where I was more visible to others and that is how the idea of a podcast was born.
I like to talk so this should be a good fit for me. Thanks to Instagram and a random post I saw from Silvia Isaacson, I joined a group to learn how to podcast. The rest is becoming history.
In this first episode, I’ll share more about myself, my background and philosophies regarding branding & marketing as well as how I got started on my entrepreneurial journey. I talk some about my vision for this podcast but most importantly, I talk about the importance of WHY and purpose.
And how I live my life in pursuit of MY purpose,
