Sharing stories is the most personal way of connecting. And it’s one way I’m helping to build and nurture a community of remarkable women. I am making these connections – and helping other women to make them – when I’m speaking at women’s business events or meeting colleagues for projects and networking.
I am also making connections when I work on my Remarkable Women podcast. This podcast is my major vehicle for sharing stories about the people I meet.
I interview anywhere from one to several women each month. These women come from all walks of life and places around the world. They are small business owners, nonprofit founders, life coaches, mothers, teachers, and so much more.
Most recently, I interviewed Cheryl Piper-Snyder, a business and executive coach as well as a holistic and HeartMath coach. Her real passion is helping others live whole and full lives. I found it fascinating to learn about the “brain, mind, heart” connection from Cheryl, and how those intangible emotions can be visually tracked and measured. In tracking, we feel like we can better control them instead of just reacting and feeling at a loss. Cheryl helps people get to that state of control, calm, and resilience.
Cheryl is just one example of the unique individuals featured in my podcast. I am so grateful to the women who share their stories with me – both business and personal. They expose their journeys of adversity and growth, failures and successes. They bravely reveal these intimate details for the sole purpose of connecting with me and our podcast audience, and in turn, helping me to connect with others.
