WELP! WE'RE DOING IT. WELCOME TO THE PACKED PARTY PODCAST! CAN HARDLY BELIEVE I'M TYPING THAT OUT.WHEW! THIS JOURNEY HAS BEEN A CRAZY AND EXCITING ONE AND LOOKING BACK ON THE LAST NEARLY FOUR YEARS SOME OF MY FAVORITE MEETINGS HAVE BEEN SITTING DOWN FOR COFFEE WITH OTHER BUSINESS OWNERS AND CUSTOMERS. YOU'RE THE REASON ALL OF THIS IS POSSIBLE AFTER ALL - TRULY! BECAUSE WE ALL LIVE SO FAR APART AND I WANT A PLACE WHERE I FEEL LIKE WE CAN ALL HANG OUT AND GET COFFEE TOGETHER THIS WAS MY SOLUTION. A PLACE WHERE I CAN SHARE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS SO MANY OF YOU HAVE EMAILED ME SINCE STARTING! I HOPE TO COVER EVERYTHING FROM CREATING A BRAND FROM SCRATCH TO BALANCING A DAY JOB AND A DREAM, WORKING WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE, TO SIMPLY JUGGLING YOUR PERSONAL LIFE AND COMPANY (IT AIN'T ALLLLLLL GLAMOROUS TRUST ME) SO THIS IS THE SPOT I HOPE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU CAN GRAB A COMFY SEAT, A CUP OF COFFEE, MAYBE A GLASS OF WINE AND TALK DIRECTLY TO ME. I WANT TO COVER TOPICS YOU WANT TO HEAR ABOUT, SO LET ME KNOW IN AN EMAIL HERE, A COMMENT BELOW, OR EVEN JUST DM'ING US ON SOCIAL. I'M PRETTY EASY TO GET A HOLD OF I PROMISE!

EPISODE 5: 10 THINGS I LEARNED IN 2017

2017 WAS NO JOKE. I LEARNED A LOT, LAUGHED A LOT, MOVED A LOT, AND GREW A LOT. TODAY I'M SHARING 10 THINGS I LEARNED THROUGHOUT WHAT I'D CALL ONE OF THE TOUGHEST YEARS I HAVE HAD TO DATE PROFESSIONALLY. SO MANY GREAT THINGS HAPPENED, BUT A LOT OF REALLY BIG CHANGES CAME WITH THE GROWTH TOO I WASN'T QUITE READY FOR IN SO MANY WORDS SO I'M HOPING MY TEN THINGS CAN INSPIRE YOU TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH YOURSELF ABOUT WHAT YOU LEARNED THIS YEAR TOO AND WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE INTO NEXT YEAR. WE AS A TEAM ARE SHARING OUR TEN THINGS SO IT'S BEEN REALLY FUN TO HEAR WHERE EVERYONE'S BEEN AND IS HEADED AS WE DIVE (READ RUN LIKE HELL) INTO 2018.
