Mom &… Podcast
Episode 40: What We’ve Learned in 40 Weeks of Podcasting
Hosts Susanne Kerns and Missy Stevens talk about what they’ve learned in 40 weeks of interviewing life coaches, career coaches, and women who are embracing life in their ellipses. After more than 40 episodes (40 numbered episodes, plus bonus episodes and a monthly Tipsy Ellipses), Missy and Susanne were ready to reflect on the skills and knowledge they’ve gained around career breaks, career pivots, relaunching, and more. And as always, there’s a Look, Listen, Learn segment, though it’s a bit of a speed round since the main discussion was too good to keep it brief.
Topics From This Episode
- Some things we’ve learned from our guests that we have put into practice in our lives.
- Some things we’ve learned that we love, but haven’t quite mastered yet.
- Some things we realized we were already doing well (backs, patted).
