What I Learned From Attending a Podcast Conference (and it wasn’t about podcasting)

Last week I attended the Podcast Movement Conference in California.  It was the first time I’d gone, and wasn’t sure what to expect.  As the time got closer, I wondered if I should even go at all.  It’s such a long trip, and I’ve been traveling so much lately that I’m pretty worn out.  And I’m not crazy about huge crowds either.  But in the end I decided to go.

I learned so much there – and it wasn’t really about podcasting.

Give Yourself an A

I have a confession to make.  In the past, I’ve been really hard on myself.  Expected more of myself than anyone can actually do.  And then I’d collapse in exhaustion.  It’s happened at least a few times in my life.

To the point where I’ve made myself sick.

Episode 072: The Art of Possibility

Do you know that every day you decide what is and isn’t possible?  That your mind tends to follow patterns established by our common ancestry and your own experience?  On today’s episode we explore how you can open your mind and imagination to greater possibility – and then actually do something with it.

How Does She Do It All?

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know I have a full-time job as well as this blog and a podcast.  Not only that, but I’ve been traveling most weeks from CT to NC for business.  Add on my music ministry at church and the normal responsibilities of a homeowner and just… well…life, and it’s quite a juggling act.

You may be judging yourself by comparison.  You may be asking yourself, “How does she do it all?”
