I’m excited! I’ve achieved my goal of starting a podcast and am proud to say that the Women Living Well After 50 Podcast has launched! Sure, I’m nervous but I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and taken a leap of faith.
My introduction to the episodes reads like this:
Welcome to the Women Living Well After 50 Podcast. I’m Sue Loncaric and I’m passionate about inspiring, motivating, supporting and informing Women Over 50 to embrace this exciting time of life. Health and Wellness in mind, body and spirit are the foundations for living well but there is so much more to a life well lived. Each week through conversations with my guests, I’ll be presenting topics that will help us all to live well and enjoy life. So join me as we discover new ways to become Women Living Well After 50. Are you ready to start living? What are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
I’ve had the usual responses from some people such as:
- ‘Why do you want to do that?’,
- ‘Oh, there are already so many podcasts’,
- ‘It is so expensive’,
- ‘It takes a lot of work’
And yes, they may or may not be right, but I’m doing the podcast and this whole project for me as well as for you. I’m growing,learning and challenging myself and loving every minute of it. Sure, I may not be Oprah and I may not be the best podcaster or presenter (to start with LOL), but I’m giving it a try rather than just thinking, wishing and perhaps regretting that I didn’t take the opportunity to make my dream a reality. To me, that is such an important lesson for us all.
My plan was to start with YouTube which I’ve ticked off and then progress the Conversations to a Podcast which I can now tick off.
In Episode 1, I explain Who I am, Why I’ve started the Podcast and What you can expect. You can take a listen to Episode 1 HERE along with Episodes 2 and 3.
I’ve had my cheerleaders supporting me all the way and a special mention and my deepest thanks to Debbie Harris from Deb’s World who has been my #1 cheerleader, sounding board and voice of reason over the last few weeks.
If you have a dream you can make it a reality, even if it takes overcoming self-doubt and self-believe. If you want something badly enough you will make it happen. I’ve had the self-doubt, the self-belief, the ‘mean girl‘ voice in my head, telling me I can’t do it. But I fought those thoughts and I’ve done it!
I’d love to hear your feedback and if you have any topics you would like me to bring into the Conversation then drop me an email with your ideas. You may also know someone who has a story to share that relates to living well after 50 or maybe even You could be a guest! Just contact me and I can send you the details.
