You’ve heard it said that experience isn’t something you get until just after you needed it.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t share our experiences in hopes they can help others not make the same mistakes we have.

In today’s episode, we’re going to share some of the most valuable lessons WE learned this year.

Lessons learned from leading 23 live events (3 of which were brand new), partnering with 20+ incredible organizations, hosting 46 podcasts, releasing 110 newsletters, writing 500 social media posts, hiring two new full time staff members and countless other impactful moments.

Hear from each member of our staff as we recount both the successes and failures encountered along the way including:

Operations advice from Liz Bartholomew – Director of Operations (10:00

Effective prioritization strategies from Ali Kershner – Director of Creative Strategy (20:20)

The benefits of exploring new sides to yourself  from Bekah Gold – Chief Everything Officer (38:20

Advice on job transitions from Nate Hoffmeister – Director of Strategic Growth and Business Relationships (50:10).

My last note for today’s episode speaks to something we do every holiday season. Each year we donate a portion of proceeds from my first book, Conscious Coaching, to the Leukemia Lymphoma Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.  We sell signed copies of my book, because a core attribute of our business is conveying Midwest warmth and appreciation. So it’s a chance for me to say thank you, personalize these things and send them to you. So if you want to donate to a good cause, and you know somebody that maybe would appreciate the book, or maybe you want to buy a bunch of them for your institution as other organizations have, or whatever it is, go to
