Ever since I was 16 years old, I’ve had a at least a part-time job. I’ve never not worked. When my peers were taking trips to sunny beaches, I was picking up extra shifts. Although I’ve continued to be employed, the pandemic changed the pace of my work schedule. Suddenly I had time when I would’ve been commuting. I had random days off when I would’ve been coaching at a school.
These extra pockets of time opened up space for me to start thinking and dreaming of new projects when I would’ve been “booked and busy.” As luck would have it, it was also during this time I met Kisha who was starting her own business as a thought partner. To support her burgeoning business, I scheduled a discovery call with her. I didn’t know if I really needed a formal thought partner since I was always so busy keeping up with the present. But before I knew it, I was on my way to planning my own podcast!
This is just another example of something gained during the pandemic.
