We published the trailer for upscale talks just under a year ago and have subsequently published. Over 50 episodes. And you have been so gracious. And so committed to us. Listening every week, subscribing and leaving your five-star reviews. We’ve noticed by our data. That you’re listening to us. In north America where we are, you’re listening to us in Europe. You’re listening to us in Asia. You’re listening to us in Australia. You’re listening to us in south America. You’re listening to us in Africa and we appreciate you. And we value you and we want to continue to publish an episode every Monday to continue to meet your listening needs. We’re grateful for the feedback you’ve shared with us over For the ideas you’ve shared to suggest topics such as the imposter syndrome, which was the most requested topic from And that is why we created several podcast episodes to address your needs. We answered the questions you asked, what is it, how do we deal with it? Where does it show up? And then we brought other experts in and had a conversation. To share stories that help you to see you are not alone. If you’re experiencing the imposter syndrome. That’s just one of the ideas you gave And that is how we wrapped up the season, but that’s not where we started. We started the season looking at our confidence and how confidence shows up in our leadership and how you can show up confidently in various spaces. We’re happy to share with you that your favorite podcast episode was number 14. effective goal setting. Your smartest goals. So we’re happy because that means you are set in smart And going about achieving what you desire and deserve in your life. The next three topics you really enjoyed were episode number 24 preparing for scrutiny as simple strategy for leadership. As well as number 25. Leadership is a long distance journey. And finally. Top four. The importance of community for leaders. Those were your top four episodes episode 14 24, 25. And number three. So if those were not your favorites, go back and see what made them favorites. And if those were your favorites. Kudos to you. And thanks for making those the four most popular episodes in season one to date. My personal favorite was episode number 30 to run your own race. It’s something I believe in it’s something I practice. It’s something I encourage you to practice. Because no matter where you are no matter where other people are if you have done what we talked about in episode 14, set to the smartest goals and if you are on track going at the pace that you have chosen and that you’re capable off you are on track to set in and get in your own goals and i encourage you to run your own race and leave others to run their own. When I’m working with my students, I recommend episode 20, your goals live outside your comfort zone. It’s a call to step up and step out, release yourself off your comfort zone and just a reminder that there is no one comfort zone that as we shed. One step out of one. There’s another that we step into and it’s about expanding our comfort zone more and more. So that we create more and more space for learning. Exploring. Experimenting. Experiencing upskilling. That’s what it’s all about none of these happen inside our comfort zone. Hosting this podcast was a journey outside of my own comfort zone. I had to step up to learn. To open myself to coaching from someone with greater expertise on podcast in than I was. Shout out to Michael Sharkey. By podcast, coach. Who supported me, helped me with strategy. Held my hand guided me and then empowered me to take the journey on my own. If you’re in a comfort zone right now. And, you know, you need to take that next step. If you’re not confident on your own. Partnering with someone. Like a coach. Like an accountability partner, like a peer, someone who supervises you, it’s so important that we seek support to come out of our comfort zone. If we don’t feel we have the courage or the skills to do it alone. I am fortunate to have the team at upscale community. And our partners at, to McGraw hill to support us along this And I have benefited tremendously from their ideas. Their input. And their encouragement to be able to stay on track episode after episode for one year. That has been a great lesson in accountability. It’s the only way for us to do more and to contribute I would not be doing this episode report into you that we have now published several episodes. Be able to answer questions in episodes for others, be able to address topics that we’re concerned for others. Be able to invite a number of people to join us inside upscale community for the ongoing conversation. None of this would have happened if I had stayed where I was in my comfort zone. Unsure of how do I exactly go about podcasting? There are people to help you. There are coaches, they’re partners, they’re accountability, partners, they’re community of people, of leaders who are they’re looking to make a contribution, looking to learn together. And we’re doing that at upscale community if you do not have a place to go come over and join us and be part of the conversation. In a nutshell, some of the key lessons we learned to this year, one. Get started. On that thing that you’ve been putting off on that thing that you’re afraid of starting get started. Lesson number two. Take it one step at a time. If you’re writing that big document one day a week, just think about how difficult. Recording 52 episodes could be, if you were to think about that all at once, but because we’ve been doing it just one week at a time, we’re in this place and joyful to share with you that we’ve finished season And we’re looking forward to season two. And lesson number three. Please get started wherever you are. That’s the number one lesson we’re taken away from season one. And we want to share that with you. Last week. We had a conversation with Brandon guru, the dolphin brand, man, Peter Wilkin, joining us inside upscale community and leading off the conversation on Brandon. And we’re going to continue that conversation and we invite you to join please share your favorite episode of upscale talks. With your friends and your network.
