I host a weekly podcast featuring pioneering stories of women in leadership, life, and parenting. We talk about what it means to work, build businesses, raise kids, and deal with life’s biggest challenges. Listen to the Startup Pregnant Podcast wherever you listen to podcasts, or find out more on Startup Pregnant website.
Don’t forget to exhale through all of this. If you’re tired, scared, stressed, overworked, or feeling all the feelings, this episode is for every one of us. It’s a short method to help catch your breath, tap into your body, and exhale away some of the tension.
The coming few weeks are going to be tough. Potentially tougher than what we can imagine. Here’s a short list of things I journaled to myself — reminders for how to stay sane in the coming weeks and months.
On Wednesday this past week, my husband and I started feeling sick. The boys were both snotty, and we’d been watching the news—way too much, but you know. It’s hard to peel your eyes away. On Thursday we decided to keep everyone home, out of the abundance of caution. Here’s everything we are doing to prepare for coronavirus.
As Seth Godin would say, “This might not work.” I can make zero promises about whether this podcast will last, if it will work, and whether or not I’ll wake my children up while trying to record. I’m currently making this from a corner of my apartment while in quarantine with two children and a husband in New York City. Here’s a look at what life looks like right now.
I have a microphone, a computer, and an urge to talk to all of you. If you hear small children in the background, it’s because… there are small children in the background. But first, let me introduce you to a new podcast that I’m working on.
Almost two years ago, the idea for Startup Pregnant came to me. But when the idea first arrived, it was to be a book of my own experience. A story of what it was like to work in the tech startup scene in Manhattan while navigating my pregnancy. Over time, however, the idea morphed from a book (still in progress) to grow in shape and size. I started interviewing women and hearing incredible stories. And I knew these interviews need to be conversations that people could listen to. So I ended up starting a podcast. Here’s the backstory, and a sneak peek into where we’re headed.
Transformation isn’t easy, in fact, it’s often painful, but it’s one of the most beautiful parts of being a human. Help us bootstrap the Startup Pregnant podcast to tell these stories!
