Well, to say the last 4 weeks has been busy is an understatement. But most importantly I have been Maria in The Sound of Music in my local theatre, I have joined a new real estate brokerage that's going to take over Western North Carolina, and officially resurrected the podcast!
In August I hit a little snafu with my co-host and it not only killed the podcast, but I lost a friend, which was/is very upsetting. I decided abruptly to put it on hold. We were also going through some changes with the Excuse Us organization vs The Excuse Us While We Succeed Foundation, which is now the 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and it felt like I needed to sort those things out first, before horrifying the world with our hilarious podcast.
Someone said to me over the summer "would Oprah want to give you 100k for your nonprofit after listening to that podcast?" I was torn haha! I didn't want the podcast to ruin what the Foundation was trying to accomplish. I realized now it doesn't matter, and I don't give a crap of someone doesn't like me or my occasional f-bomb. I have also recently realized the greatest thing anyone can offer this world today is to be the real you.... with all of the cussing, silliness, awkward stories and adult temper tantrums that come with you. Nobody is perfect, and nobody should be!
My friend is trying to figure out where I am going with this whole podcast thing... do you have any idea how many business based, entrepreneurial podcasts there are out there? MILLIONS! I do not claim to be an expert in business, nor am I trying to become one. I am an expert in bringing people together. I am the conduit. I am an entertainer. So there you have it: I will bring women with entrepreneurial aspirations onto the show to talk about all the things it means to be a woman in the world today. We will talk about business, bad wax jobs, throwing tacos, our reproductive rights being taken away. We will inspire, we will laugh hysterically. This is a place for women to come to unwind and belong. Hear more about why, what and how in the very first episode we made which is called Welcome To The Tribe.
