Hello podcast world here I come! You guys this is something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time, but I put it off because of oh you know time constraints and learning all the techie stuff that goes with it. It became so clear to me that this was a project I needed to make time for so I youtubed everything I needed to know about podcasting, asked anyone I knew that had a podcast for advice and started asking questions and recording…. I’m still learning so bare with me on any less than perfect sound issues.
I came up with the name “Sure, Babe” while climbing into bed one night thinking of what I would call my podcast and sharing yet another “big idea” with my husband and his response was….”sure, babe.” I said, “thank you you just gave me the name of my podcast!” Sure, Babe represents the nuances of marriage and relationships and the idea that you can do anything you want and be who you really are. This podcast is all about marriage, parenthood, career and creating the life you want to live. I hope through listening and getting to know the people that I interview you find wisdom, joy, laughter, career advice and feel less alone.
Here are the details on episodes 1-4!
Episode 1: Being Known & Knowing Yourself ~ In this episode I share thoughts about what I’ve learned from my past and how I’m learning to integrate all the parts of myself. I walk you through one of my greatest tools called “safe place visualization” and help you recognize all the parts of who you are and how to let them be known by yourself and the world. If you’d like to go deeper into this topic write down any memories from childhood or your past that seem significant and then ask yourself how they might be related to who you are today.
Episode 2: Balancing Work and Motherhood While Putting Your Heart Into Your Business and Social Media Platforms With Ginger Parish ~ In Episode two I interview blogger and hat shop owner Ginger Parish. Ginger is the curator of theparishplace.com and gigipip.com. In this episode we talk about being authentic online, staying a soft person while still putting ourselves out there. We talk about processing difficult emotions like jealousy, judgement and mom guilt.
