Today's episode is a mini farewell episode. I'm taking the summer off from the podcast! I know I've done this before, and now I'm doing it again. It's also a permission slip for you to say no to more things so you can take more time for yourself and the things you want to be doing. Where can you pause, quit, or otherwise say NO THANKS and bow out? Hopefully today's episode will give you the support and inspiration you need to join me on the bench this summer. See you in September! --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/claim-the-stage-podcast/support ..read more
