Episode Info

Episode Info:

Today's it's just me. I know I promised a Meredith cameo, but as you'll hear, stuff just kept happening and we never found time to record. So I decided to record a little solo episode. Frankly, after I sent the audio files off to be edited, I sank into a serious vulnerability hangover. I was really weirded out by doing a solo episode. Even though I enjoyed recording it, it was different with just me doing the talking and adding the value. When I'm interviewing I'm asking the questions and letting my guests work their magic and without that, I was a little intimidated. Shortly afterward (and knee deep in imposter syndrome) I was listening to a podcast where the host was talking about doing your best work... (and in my head, I was like.."shit, that wasn't my best work") ...but he went on to talk about how the only way anything gets out there EVER is by people just writing it, speaking it, creating it and PUTTING it out there. There's nothing wrong with wanting to do excellent work always, but if you're never releasing it because you're afraid of the vulnerability hangover, you're selling yourself, your work and the people who want to hear it wayyyyy short. I encourage the practice of literally forgetting about whatever you've just put out. Whether it's a blog post, a marketing email, a podcast episode or a piece of art, after you release to the world, just stop thinking about it. I'm not sitting over here listening to my recording over and over again, In fact, I didn't even relisten once. Because if I did, I would inevitably hate something about it and want to re-record it and probably lose steam or give up and never let any of you hear it. Not great for my process and a bad example for everyone I'm trying to serve. So when you put something out there, just trust that it's going to reach someone. Trust that it's going to make you better at your craft. And then stop thinking about it. You'll also hear at the end that I'm officially offering small business consulting/coaching specifically for brick and mortar people. I'm not 100% on the word coaching, I prefer selling it as a business partner for hire. If you need an outside voice to help you through a problem, or an extra set of eyes to help you create some new processes and systems, or if you just need someone to vent to, I will be your person. My rates are fair and I have availability starting mid-May. If you want to chat more about this, please email me at keepingshop@gmail.com. I'm looking forward to working with you!
