Alright, I know I said I wasn’t going to be back until next week BUT… I’ve got something special to share with you this week: The Best of Punk Rock Personal Development Season 1!
I can hardly believe that I’ve been sharing this conversations with you for an entire year now.
The idea for this podcast started as a tiny seed of an idea while sitting at my desk at my old day job.
I had loved hosting a series called the Inspiration Interviews on my blog but I was craving conversation rather than just sending questions via email that people messaged me back the answers to.
I wanted to dive deep into people’s journeys and experiences. Into the obstacles they’d faced and how they’d overcome them. Into what was working for them and what wasn’t. Into the nitty gritty of how they’re living with passion and purpose. Into their big dreams and all the messy reality of being human.
I felt a bit crazy piling another project onto my plate but I also felt really passionate about it and my husband agreed to help with the technical side. Within a week I’d ordered a microphone, downloaded the necessary software and scheduled my first interview.
Looking back, I’ve learned a lot in the past year. About being an interviewer. But more importantly about the importance of conversation and connection and just being real. My guests have taught and inspired me so much.
To be clear, I could easily have picked multiple clips from every single episode because I love them all. They are all beautiful and precious to me. But that really wasn’t feasible so here are 12 - based on my feelings, the input of listeners, and download numbers.
I hope it will inspire you to dive deep into archives and listen to any of the conversations that inspire you...
