We all do it -- selfies, pictures of your kids, pets, your new house, a new car... It's a cycle of constant updates! But is this behavior creating unrealistic expectations and a false sense of failure for MarketHers and users in general?
Happy 4th of July from the ladies of MarketHer! Our theme for Season 2 is all about embracing the struggle and letting go of the idea of perfection, and sometimes the pressure to be perfect is no stronger than on holidays. Across social media, it seems like everyone is at the best party, eating the best food, and just overall, having the best time -- but that's not realistic. In the U.S., today is Independence Day and that's all about celebrating our freedom to live life anyway we want; as "perfectly" or "imperfectly" as it may seem to others.
Guess who's back!?! If you guessed MarketHer, then you're right! After a short hiatus at the close of Season 1, Angela, Brie, and I are back for Season 2 and we should come with a warning! Between end-of-school activities, vacations (one to Colombia!), setting up a farm business, and brand new jobs (still at IMPACT) for the three of us, we needed time to focus on all the amazing things happening around us!
If you haven’t checked out MarketHer yet, this post is for you. (Or even if you love MarketHer, really!) After 9 months and 36 episodes, we’re wrapping up and reflecting on Season 1 - and we can’t wait to show you what’s next! I’ve talked quite a bit about how MarketHer got started, and a little bit about how starting a podcast has helped me grow into a better leader. Our hope is the show has been helping you just as much as it! (For newbies, check out our first post featuring Episode 1 and more about the show.)
You get 10 points if you recognize the quote in the title of this episode from The Notebook. Yes, Britt is a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks. You'll just have to forgive her cheeky humor. DiSC, Meyer-Briggs, Enneagram, and now DOPE. Here at MarketHer, we love personality tests as they help us not only know ourselves better but more importantly, help us understand the people we work with every day.
Guys! I love co-hosting MarketHer for a myriad of reasons, some of which Brie shared during in this article, but my favorite episodes are the ones when I barely speak because I'm learning so much from our guest or Ang and Brie. This is one of those episodes!
We've tackled similar topics before -- the ones where we complain that there aren't enough female bosses, CEOs, leaders having a seat at the table, etc. Well, we are at it again! This week's episode, we are talking about speakers, and particularly, women speakers.
Did you ever have had one of those moments as a little girl (or boy) when you just knew you were meant to be someone or do something great? Then, as you got older, it became even more apparent?
