    Winging It | Midlife | Part 2: Ready or Not, Here I Am

    29/01/2020 Duración: 20min

    Ready or not, here I am. In part two of our Winging It: Midlife series, I dive into learning to be okay with putting myself and my new projects out into the world. 

  • Winging It | Midlife | Part 1: Introduction

    Winging It | Midlife | Part 1: Introduction

    14/01/2020 Duración: 13min

    When I started Winging It back in 2015, my son Blaze was just two years old. At that time, I wanted to document becoming a parent while working full-time, all while attempting to do all the things. Since launching the podcast almost five years ago, a lot has happened, and I’ve figured some things out.  Today, I’m excited to share a new 5-part series I’ve created within my podcast. This new series is called: Winging It | Midlife. Follow along with me as I explore life after leaving my full-time job and starting a business of my own. 

  • Winging It: Episode 22: Dream On, Part Two

    Winging It: Episode 22: Dream On, Part Two

    In the second part of our deep dive into dream-making, I sit down with Dan Pilver who is one of the founders and owners of Magic Number. If you’re not familiar with Dan’s company, Magic Number creates craft-brewed, cannabis-infused beverages—which are all handmade in Bend, Oregon. Dan is someone who started his company while at the same time working a full-time job. I'm continually inspired by individuals like Dan because people like Dan are examples of creators and business owners who ultimately find the way, the time, and the drive to turn their dream into their reality.

    Winging It: Episode 21: Dream On, Part One

    24/05/2019 Duración: 37min

    I believe we all have dreams within us that wish to be birthed. Dreams that are tapping their feet annoyed, exclaiming, “I’m waiting. What’s the hold-up? Hey you, do you not see me over here?” Sometimes we use excuses like, “I don’t have enough time” or “I’m too busy” or “I don’t have the financial resources to make it happen” — excuses that only postpone our dreams from becoming our reality. Shannon, founder of Shannon Lee Strategy, and my guest on this podcast episode, knows firsthand how to turn a dream into a reality. After years of doing marketing for other businesses, Shannon started her own company. “YOU DO YOU,” Shannon says, and the rest is history. In this first part of our look at turning our dreams into our reality, Shannon kicks us off with how she made the leap from her nine to five, what ultimately inspired her, and how she keeps her mindset in check (It’s so good!).

  • Winging It: Episode 20: Learning to Lean Into the Universe

    Winging It: Episode 20: Learning to Lean Into the Universe

    30/04/2019 Duración: 15min

    In this episode, we re-visit what exactly Winging It means. Winging It is about preparing your heart-out and putting your full self out there. Then, it’s about surrendering it all. It’s about giving your all, and then, letting it all go. It’s about working your hardest, and then leaving the rest up to the universe, to God, to the cosmos, to nature—to whatever you may believe in. Winging It is about living your life full-out even when you don’t have all the answers, or know exactly what you are doing. It means having faith—that whatever happens after you work extremely hard—is what is suppose to happen to bring you to the next evolution of who you truly are.  

  • Winging It: Episode 19: Life in a Straitjacket

    Winging It: Episode 19: Life in a Straitjacket

    02/02/2018 Duración: 09min

    Beneath all the labels and stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, is where I believe, we will find who we truly really are—and this is where we will find true happiness. To me, a straitjacket is a great metaphor that represents human beings living beneath (and absorbed in) their labels, stories, and the accompanying pressures, expectations, and beliefs that are associated with the labels and stories we attach ourselves to throughout our lives. Since discovering this metaphor, I find myself constantly challenging myself with how I define myself—what labels and stories I use when I show up with each day.

    25/01/2018 Duración: 07min

    Throughout my life, I've realized that my biggest teacher and companion in life has been death. It's when I ponder my own mortality, that I am most able to gain perspective, wisdom, and inspiration to live more open, more fully, and more alive. I reflect on death, and ask Johnny about death as well, in this latest Winging It episode.

    Episode 13: Jump

    02/01/2017 Duración: 09min

    We jumped—and it has turned out to be one of the bigger jumps of my life. I've always been one who is up for the ride, but for this ride I've really had to buckle-up. I have moved a lot in my life, and I’ve changed jobs before, but for some reason moving with my husband and son has completely put a different kind of spin on everything—a spin that has not stopped, where I still feel like I am hovering above our new life. I look down and see all the pieces and players moving around, but I am a bit disconnected from it all. Here's to new adventures!

    17/06/2016 Duración: 08min

    The backdrop of my life has been muted by the recent world events. I had a planned a different theme for this episode, but after what happened last week in Orlando, my thoughts and heart have been focused only there. At times like these, I recall a speech I heard at the Academy Awards by a woman named Gerda Weissman Klein. It has stayed with me forever.

    For me, I know when life gets extremely busy—too busy where my priorities get out of whack—I am the only one to blame. I set my own priorities, and it is my responsibility to protect those priorities. In Episode 9, Turn Your Brain Off For Awhile, I own up to neglecting to pay attention to my priorities, and after I bomb a live interview at a conference I was invited to participate in, I become determined to get passed my issue of public speaking.

    12/02/2016 Duración: 15min

    Can you imagine learning at two years old, that you have the power within yourself to be happy? I want to teach my son this. In Episode 8, Show Up (Even Without Your Shoes) I revisit balance in my life and how I continue to struggle with what's most important to do each moment and also, when it is just as important to do nothing at all. We are all trying to figure it out, we are all doing the best we know how to do, we’re not perfect, no one is, but isn’t our best foot forward enough? Isn’t it enough to just show up? I say yes it is.

  • Winging It: Episode 5: We are all Winging It

    Winging It: Episode 5: We are all Winging It

    30/12/2015 Duración: 10min

    My son has been my greatest teacher. Being his mother has pushed me into myself – all my issues, my unrealized dreams, and upon his arrival, reminded me of all that I was before he came into my life, as if I was looking at myself outside myself. The more I grow in motherhood, the more I learn about life. I know these learnings would have made their way to me via a different route had I not decided to become a mother, but I am extremely grateful it was my son who dropped them on my doorstep. He said, "Mom, deal with this. Now." In this next bonus episode, We are all Winging It, I come to a big realization at the close of 2015. I also have exciting news about the future of Winging It. Thanks again for listening and Happy New Year to you all!
