First and foremost, I have MISSED you! I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus as some of you have noticed. This is my first post in almost 3 months! Crazy how times flies. But don’t you worry, we’ve been busy creating new content that’s more relatable, intimate, and definitely informative. Today is the OFFICIAL launch of my new podcast, Age Gap Realness. And the first episode is all about how to get out of a rut with your significant other.

For those of you who have been following along since this blog launched, you know that I’ve been in a transformative space over the past year. And honestly, I created the blog because I needed to pull myself out of this space. I wasn’t contributing to anything that had meaning. I felt I was still apologizing for my relationship with Brandon. I needed to flip the script on my own self limiting thoughts and get it all out there. My fears. What I’ve learned. Where I’m growing. And let me tell you, it is the best thing I’ve ever done.

A year ago when I was planning this site, I had no idea what I was doing. Like literally. No idea. I had never build a website. Started a youtube page. I didn’t event know what a blog WAS… much less that I had been reading them for years without ever knowing it. ANYways… all of that is to say I’ve had fun figuring this shit out and learning a new skill. I’m not an expert but I have learned a lot. So much so, that I decided to help B with his back in December.

I’ve never talked much about his work on my blog because it didn’t seem too relevant but let me take a minute to share. Brandon is a genius. I don’t just say this because I’m madly in love with him. I say it because it’s the truth. And lots of people know this. He’s a master negotiator, team builder, business strategist, and connector. He teaches me things every single day. So when we realized that he had never had much of a social presence, we decided to change that and in January we launched his website, youtube channel, podcast, and cleaned up his instagram.

This is, in part, why I’ve been so quiet on here. We’ve just been busy. But all of this is to get to my main point here – my new podcast. As much as I enjoyed writing every day, I needed to find a way to scale my content and branch into 2 areas I’ve had a lot of fear around for the past few years: audio and video.

It’s one thing to sit behind a computer screen and write polished, edited posts. It’s a whole other ball game getting in front of a camera and being recorded. I have been TERRIFIED of this. I have a good story as to why I’m so scared but I’ll share that in an upcoming post. What’s important to note is that part of my fear in creating video and audio content is because Brandon is SO good at it.

If you’ve ever watched him speak or sat with him at dinner, you understand what I mean. He has more charisma in his pinky than I have in my whole being. It is truly his gift. And something that has always intimidated me as his partner because I want to be his equal. I want to keep up. I want to have the same skills he’s honed over 50 years now. And the fear that I didn’t have these skills prevented me from ever putting myself in a position where I was up in front of people or talking on youtube.

It’s been my kryptonite.

But that is no more. I’ve had this awakening over that past few months as I realized that this fear will singlehandedly be the rate limiting factor to my ability to be successful. If I don’t run towards this fear, it will always be the lingering voice in the back of my mind that will cause me to pause instead of push forward when make or break moments present themselves. And I’m not going to let that happen.

So here is step one.

My podcast. Age Gap Realness. Coming to you each and every Tuesday. B and me will be talking all things age gap, working together, step parenting, and everything in between. You can find the podcast on whatever streaming platform you use AND you can find the show each week on YouTube.

It might be a bit rough at first guys. I’m just going to be honest. We’re still figuring everything out. The music. Our tone. The right topics.

It’s so exciting that it’s finally live but you know what going to be even more exciting? Watching how it evolves. I can hardly wait to see what this show will look like in a year from now. Because you better believe I’m going to get better. We both are. I’ve hired 2 coaches and made this a HUGE priority in my own development.

So give it a listen, or a watch. And send your love. Likes, comments, ratings. It would mean so very much to me to know your feedback.

Happy Tuesday!
