Today I wanted to delve a little deeper into this concept of selfishness. I had a great day of being pretty selfish yesterday and it made me a bit sad to think of people who never make time to care for their personal self interests. So today, I will push back on the idea that always focusing on the “Greater Good” is better than handling your personal house.
Last year was filled with adversity, heartbreak, moments of insane work schedule, worry, great friends, fun adventures and so much more. And as I reflected on my next step in life, I realized that I need to grow as a person, must grow my businesses in order to grow my independence, and want to grow my food because it brings me happiness and stability.
Today, we will have a great interview with a fellow who is growing food for fun and has recently launched his business. But he is more than that: Mark Alexander is one of the angels in our network who is there to encourage, make jokes with and ask us hard questions.
People think it is new agey to talk about the healing power of music. People are wrong. Those of you who have listened to this podcast know what sparked my change from being trapped in the system to taking responsibility for designing the life I want to live, regardless of what other people think: I went back to singing in a choir. So today, we talk about the healing power of music.
Today I have a great interview with Jami Saunders from the Culinary Arts Center in Columbia, Tennessee. But Jami is much more than a savvy promoter of local businesses. She is a Mom of SEVEN who homeschools and is popping with new ideas. YOU guys are going to LOVE this interview!
Happy Wednesday! Today is a homesteading day. We just got a whole cow in the freezer that we share among several families each year. The cow comes with bones. The bones become stock. And we end up with beef tallow.
The other day, someone asked me if beef tallow can be eaten, so I thought why now do a show sharing five recipe ideas for beef tallow. We will cover that, as well as what the heck tallow even is later in the show.
Today I want to talk to you about thinking ahead and why it is important to do so, but not at the expense of taking care of and living in the now. You see, we have been running at maximum capacity at Holler Roast Coffee and so have the letter carriers. Some packages are taking forever to arrive, others are there in a moment, and some might be lost forever. But as we navigate this busy time, we’ve been building in time to think ahead, create plan bs while handling plan as every day. So I will talk about how we are approaching that later in the show.
