A new direction and a new podcast.

Late last year, I felt pulled to take my podcast The AMPLIFY Show in a new direction. It had evolved a couple times over the past few years and it was time I start fresh with a show that has an updated look and brand for the specific information and topics I want to explore and share- and I can’t wait for you to join me on this journey!

Here is the first preview of the new show. I’ll be sharing more of the backstory of why I created it in the very first episode. I realize this trailer is a little more melancholy than my typical style, but it does fit the urgency and significance of the subject matter.

Take a listen and I’d love to know what you think!

Plus, a future book.

This project actually started as a book idea before a podcast. I always thought I’d write a book but I could never quite figure out what the topic would be. I just hoped one day it would come to me. And it did!

It’s a really cool story (again, I share in the first episode) and it was really clear that I was called to do this research and take on this project this year.

If you didn’t know, 4-6 months to write and launch a book is (super) fast.

Throw in 4 kids, some part-time consulting work, and life… and maybe it sounds a bit crazy. Or even impossible. 

But if you’ve been around for a while, you know this only fuels my motivation even more. I’m up for the challenge and love to see what’s possible when clarity and calling are in alignment.

What’s Next and a Favor

So with that, stick around and there will be plenty of interesting updates as I get this project started. 🙂

Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and I would REALLY appreciate if you left a review. This will help so much as I start over to build up an audience of likeminded mama bears.

I’m also over on instagram @mamabearsurvival where I share more video shorts on a lot of these topics. I look forward to connecting with you over there!
