I am so excited! I launched my podcast!

I love people, I love people’s stories, I love asking questions and creating the space where deeper answers can be born which the person who was asked didn’t even know that they had these answers.

You see, podcasting was for me! And the universe showed me the right timing.

My friend Mihaela told me I would be an amazing podcaster, I myself starting looking more into what was in the podcasting world and around the same time one of my role models Seth Godin announced the opening of the Podcasting Fellowship. I checked the website of the fellowship and somehow ended up getting a discount which I used immediately. And with their guidance and great support of the fellowship I recorded my first podcast with my friend who had motivated me to do it in the first place.

It was an amazing experience recording my first podcast episode with her. She spitted out nuggets of wisdom here and there like a dragon spitting fire. I am so grateful to have her as my friend.

I wrote a whole text about what I learned from this podcast on

Yesterday I was editing this interview, adding the intro and closing (outro they call it:) ) I felt very insecure. I thought there is a lot to learn, it takes a lot of time, is it good enough?, should I wait till I have enough episodes ready and then publish it so I will not risk anything and I will know better. But then I thought it is exactly when I should “ship”. I let people give me feedback, I let myself make mistakes, I give myself the time and space to grow by delivering. If I want to wait and perfect it, who knows when it will be “perfect”. And most importantly, the message has to be delivered! People have to hear it. So I delivered it. What do you think? 

I can be the luckiest person about my friends. I have so many inspiring friends who are thoughtful, who are authentic, who work to create value and make a change in the world, it is not difficult for me to record new episodes. I have already recorded a fantastic interview with Maja for which I am super excited to share too. I still need to do a few things about it but it is coming next Wednesday.

I am excited for this new journey!
