Guys… I’m so behind in the blog!
I do, however, have a really good reason for being behind in putting out quality content for you. Are you ready?
I’m launching a podcast! Starting March 1st, the Girl Tries Life podcast will go live with 21 Days to Kick Start Your Best Life. It’ll 21 days in a row of 5-10 minutes daily episodes that give you an actionable, tangible challenge to help you work towards achieving your dreams and your goals.
After that, we’ll be moving into regular content on the podcast, which will include weekly Motivation Monday episodes (5-10 minutes again), and a Thursday interview with women who seriously inspire me, who I know will help inspire you. These women are coming from all walks of life, all types of careers, all kinds of beliefs, because I truly believe in supporting women to achieve their best life, no matter what that looks like for you.
And so, along with the fun part of interviewing these ladies and preparing content, I’ve had to challenge myself on the technical side, editing episodes and learning (shudder) how to host a podcast and get it listed on iTunes. It’s been a huge learning curve for me and a really good challenge to stretch myself.
My Challenge To You
Here’s my ask. I want you to challenge yourself, this February, to stretch yourself in new ways. You could write 10,000 words of your book, you could train for a 5km, work on your business plan, create a new recipe, go to couples’ counselling or do something you’ve always been scared to try. In a nutshell, I want you to make yourself uncomfortable as a means of working one step closer to your goals.
Another way to stretch yourself is to find an accountability buddy. For example, during February (actually from Feb – October), a friend and I will be emailing each other with our weekly word count. We’re both headed to a writers’ conference in October, so we need to start reaching some word count goals in order to pitch new work to agents and editors. It’s a big goal, a challenge, but having a buddy to check in on weekly is a sure-fire way to motivate and keep me accountable.
