#52 A YEAR OF PODCASTING PART 2: the BEAUTY of beginnings, flow, listening, taking a compliment, and choosing ease over easy


As I approached our 1 year podcast anniversary, I realized that there were a lot of BIG life lessons thatI  learned along the way. I launched the podcast on April 4, 2017 and we only have had one week without an episode, which was the week I want to Madeira, Portugal. Despite the face that I had NO intention of this being a continuing weekly podcast, I fell in love with the art of podcasting and connecting with all of you. 

In this week's episode, I'm sharing my thoughts on beginning without all the answers, honoring your strengths and choosing a life of ease and joy over the easy way out, even if the road to ease challenges you! I even answer my own Rapid Fire Questions and read some of your reviews!
