(Confession: I have no idea what I'm doing. I am not a podcaster, I'm an artist.)

Today I talk to you about HOW and WHY I decided to start this podcast. I also talk about how having a nagging feeling can actually be a clue that you are being called to do something greater than yourself and how that calling can be the scariest thing you've ever done.

Even though I overcame my fears when I started my path of becoming an artist, now that I have decided to start this podcast, I am reliving those fears all over again, and then some! I want you to know you are not alone.

“I think that we learn by example and I want to inspire you to follow your own dream, even when you are scared. "

I think that we learn by example and I want to inspire you to follow your own dream, even when you are scared. That is precisely why I think this episode perfectly illustrates how we feel as stay at home moms when we want to pursue a dream but are too scared to do it. I hope my story resonates with you.

It never occurred to me to start a Podcast before, and when it did occurred to me, I didn't think I'd be able to pull it off. I know that I am making lots of mistakes and that years from now, when I listen back to these first episodes I will cringe! But I want to think that I will persevere and eventually I will get better at it. I am willing to keep learning and growing and throwing myself in the ring because this is not about me. It is about you! I feel like the message that I want to give is way more important than waiting until I feel comfortable and prepared enough.

Thank you for hanging in there with me. Your support means the world to me. I hope it inspires and encourages you to follow your own dreams.
