Podcast Ep. 100: The Radical Reclaiming of the Stage Through Doing Nothing

claimthestage-podcast-ep100-summer2018-speakersisterhood-reflectionWelcome back to the podcast!! It’s good to be back in your ears after three months off. On today’s episode, I invite Lenore Braun, the club director of the Speaker Sisterhood, and Amber Ladley, the creative director, to the show to discuss our life-changing summers. Last time we talked, I told you my podcast was taking a vacation, but that wasn’t the only thing that took a hiatus in June. This summer, along with the core team that comprises my business, I took a major step back from working on everything so we could take a breather and get more perspective on what we were building. In this special episode, number 100, we lay out some of the biggest learnings, mistakes, ah-ha moments, and regrets from our summer break.

We share:

  • how we planned to spend our time and how we actually spent it
  • how we dealt with discomfort and anxiety from taking time off
  • unexpected learnings and lessons
  • how taking time off has helped us claim the stage in life and when speaking
  • advice for others who may be burnt out and needing to take a break but don’t know where to start and don’t know how to ask for it
  • our biggest regrets and what we’ll do differently next time
