When your career takes a sudden twist, what do you do? Today we tell two stories around career pivots: Brea, who found herself pregnant and unemployed—so she started a consulting practice while in her third trimester. And Tara, who left the work world to raise kids and then, eight years later, wanted to return to work. How did they do it? Here’s what it looked like.
We need more places to grapple with the reality of entrepreneurship and parenting: the grief, the rage, the sadness, the confusion, the joy, the sorry, the changes. The journey to figuring things out, creating new life, and building new businesses can be scary, overwhelming, and hard. Today we listen in as three women share their journeys over the last year, and what they’ve learned about themselves through the process.
This Fall, I took a break from podcasting for three months to focus on writing projects. It turns out “doing it all” isn’t possible, not here, not anywhere—not for me, at least. In my experience, there is always a priority, and you either choose or it chooses for you. This Fall, I took a hiatus from podcasting to focus on writing. Here’s the latest update—and our newest minibook.
What happens when three weeks go by and you make no progress? I’m a little nervous to share because I feel like I haven’t made any significant strides yet. But I’ll still account for what I have done, and why the space has been useful (even if I don’t have anything to show for it yet).
For the fall podcast hiatus, I’m on a break so I can focus on writing. This is my second writing update, and I have big news for you! We shipped our second minibook and I’m even reading an excerpt out loud on the podcast. Hip hip hooray!
