The Follow Thru Can be Scary

Have you ever had a plan in your mind, like something big, time consuming and REWARDING, that just keeps getting put on the back burner.
It keeps getting put off over and over cause it’s not integral to your everyday tasks that NEED to be getting done, even though it’s important to you and you know it’s going to make a difference?
Part of your excuse is because it’s time consuming and stressful things keep popping up making you tell yourself that you don’t need to add anything else to your plate.
But REALLY in the back of your mind it’s also because you’re scared.
You’re scared to put yourself out there,
scared to tell your story,
scared of what the reaction others will have regardless of what you HOPE their reaction will be.
You’re scared that what you dreamed up won’t become a reality, no matter how much you effort you put in.
Another perspective could be to think, how much time am I going to waste thinking about this if I don’t just DO IT!
So there’s your answer, just do it!!
You have nothing to lose…
With all of this being said, I’ve been planning to start a podcast for over a year.
I listen to podcasts every single day,
On my Drives To/From Work
During my Workouts,
While Cleaning
Basically any time that I’m doing something that doesn’t take 100% focus, and this makes me feel more productive.
I’ve never ONCE told myself that it had been a waste of my time to listen.
As I listen, I always think of all the things I would want to add to the conversation if I had a chance. I think about what I would love to share through my experiences.
As I get older, and gain more life experiences through all the highs and all the lows,  what I want to teach evolves.
I don’t think I’ve been quiet about how stressful these past couple of years have been, despite all the highs that came along with them!
Through these experiences, I feel like I have so much to share.
Every time I do, the dialogue opens up and I find out, I’m not alone. I suffered by myself for most of it, cause I didn’t want to bother friends,family, or acquaintances with the details, little did I know, it would have been a lot easier on me if I did!
Once the biggest recent stress was wrapped up last month, my plate felt empty, which is NOW why I finally have time for my passion project:

My Podcast-

Experience Your Potential

Copy of Podcast Cover
I’m interviewing AMAZING women who have come from very stressful situations (all different) but have persevered through the negativity, abuse, shame, stress, heartache, and so much more, to become INCREDIBLE members of society because they believed in themselves, worked hard, and didn’t give up!
My hope is to reach all women who are struggling and showing them that there’s still hope.
To show them that their future is bright and to give all of us as MANY examples of triumph as possible
My Plan was to Have Episode 1 Released in January, but like life can be-SHIT HIT THE FAN, and it got put on the back burner again. Deadline Missed…but that’s ok, cause I didn’t give up!

So TODAY, I’m releasing Episode #001-MY STORY

In this first episode, I tell the quick version of my story, and my plans for this podcast. Over future episodes, I will get a lot deeper into my story as I chat with my phenomenal guests!
Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to get ahead with recordings, so I can release an episode each week.
I have my first guest under my belt (who was AMAZING by the way, I can’t wait for you to hear it) and 4 more AMAZING ladies already booked and ready to go.
Download on iTunes HERE and subscribe so you don’t miss any future guests that could change your life.
When you’re done, if you love it (or if you don’t) please please please leave me a review, good or bad. I want to make every single episode better!

One thing that won’t change (viewer discretion is advised) is that there is foul language. Myself AND my guests are passionate about our experiences, and it comes out with the odd (or frequent) slip of the lips.

I also know, that when I’m happy, or excited, I’m really happy, and I laugh too loud, and that will be a work in progress!

Regardless, let me know what you think,
I couldn’t be more excited to be getting this out and into the world, and hope that we can all change for the better one episode at a time
P.S If you know someone who has surpassed the odds, and has become magnificent, please let me know. Finding amazing stories that NEED to be told is challenging, and I could use some help finding the best of the best!
