The Couragemakers Podcast | Encouragement, Inspiration & Rebel Rousing for Mission Driven Doers, Makers & Shakers |
Hi there and welcome to episode 32 of Couragemakers! This week, I’m chatting with Amy Smalarz. I met Amy through her podcast Living Intentionally with Amy Smalarz and she is a joy to spend time with. Amy is a mom, wife, business owner and teacher and lives just outside of Boston. She is the creator of the proprietary framework Communicate To Be Heard™ as she believes that each of us has a voice that deserves to be heard. Amy works with clients to helps them to discover and define their voice or their value message and then helps them to translate that to other people so you can Communicate To Be Heard™. She believes when that happens, you are truly able to live a life with greater intention. Helping others and bringing a smile to someone's face is what makes her happy. In this episode, Amy shares her journey of deciding she needed to leave her job and setting up her own business in three weeks, how doing her own thing helped Amy to find her direction and mission and how Amy has learned that there is no such thing as work-life balance, and instead, how you have to balance what you have in front of you as life goes along. We have a great discussion about the power of intention and living in the moment, and Amy shares some great practical tips for anyone wanting to live their life with intention. We talk about not giving so much power to negative emotions and how we can stop ourselves falling down the shame hole. This is a great episode if you find yourself future tripping and getting caught up in the busyness of life and want to really enjoy the journey, if you find yourself learning the same lesson over and over again, and if life feels really complicated and you want to bring it back to simple. I love the activist streak that has followed Amy through her work, and the practical activities she shares with listeners throughout the podcast! The work Amy does is so important and I’m so grateful she was so willing to share it with fellow Couragemakers. I know you’re going to get so much out of this episode. And if you enjoy this episode, check out my interview on Amy’s podcast where I talk all about what living with intention means for me. Enjoy the show!
