Is this really happening? Has Stand Out Get Noticed actually hit 100 episodes?
I was expecting fireworks or something to burst out of my laptop when I hit ‘publish’ this morning…but they didn’t. So I’m just celebrating quietly. With a cup of tea.
Anyway, I’m taking this opportunity to reflect on the lessons learned from the last 100 episodes (and podcasting in general). And to help me, I’m bringing my super cool sister Lizzay Canters back on the show. Lizzay is remarkable in many ways, one of them being she ran a daily YouTube show for an entire 4 months. And I thought my once-a-week schedule was hectic!
So I thought it would be appropriate to hear her opinions on the importance of sticking to something, how to grow your confidence over time, and how to know when to pivot.
While I’m here, I also want to say a big THANK YOU to you for being a listener, follower and supporter. You’re the reason I run this show, and your support is what inspires me to keep making this show better and better, so much so that it now receives 12,000 average monthly downloads! So big thanks, rock star 🙂
