This Season has been a bit unique for me, as it’s the first time I’ve been pregnant while podcasting. I’ve spent the entire time planning it, booking in guests, recording interviews, editing, producing and promoting episodes throughout each trimester – I am nearing the final weeks and am preparing to wrap it up for now.
My oldest kid made a cameo during Q&A and we were all presenting during the late afternoon / evening routines from different timezones, there were some great takeaways and different points that apply to both parenthood and entrepreneurship.
Pitching with a newborn -> then toddlers -> remote school age kids, has become a skill over time. I’ve been asked to speak at a couple of upcoming events this Fall and have done a roundup of the confirmed dates so far.
Less than one month after sharing my podcast workflow on this blog and my social media, I’m now presenting it as an online webinar and workshop. This my friends, is the beauty of sharing your work, showing up and trusting in the timing of things.
The five-day 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. work week hasn’t been designed to uplift everyone. That’s why it needs to be reinvented and I refuse to squeeze my life into it. I value flexibility and so do many other people, parents or not.
When I started freelancing over a decade ago, I didn’t know what ‘remote work’ was. Then when I started ‘remote working’ in 2014, I didn’t have kids but also didn’t know anyone else doing it. In fact, I was the only Canadian ‘remote worker’ in my small Irish village that I knew of. The locals told me so.
My experience narrating and recording my first audiobook: The whole ‘small steps, taken regularly add up to big results’ advice can seem discouraging when you’re searching for a quick fix but it is sooooo true.
I sincerely hope you’ll find comfort in hearing the lived experience of other entrepreneurial and community leaders, in their own words, who have been adapting to their parenthood journey along the way. Special thanks to all of our guests and podcast listeners to date.
When I first launched the Mixing Babies And Business™ Podcast in November, my goal was to reach people who can’t attend events IRL or online, releasing new mini episodes every Tuesday and Friday until the holidays. People are *actually* downloading them and tuning in and we hit 100 downloads within the first 30 days!
