    Season 4 Wrap-Up: Reflections, Joy, and New Beginnings with Sarah Baillie

    Season 4 Wrap-Up: Reflections, Joy, and New Beginnings with Sarah Baillie

    In this bittersweet season finale, Sarah Baillie and I come together to share some big news: the early wrap-up of Season 4. It's been a tough decision, but one that opens up exciting opportunities on the horizon for both of us. We peel back the curtain on the "why" behind this choice, exploring the joyous spaces it's creating for personal pursuits.
    For me, Wendy McCallum, it means dedicating more time to my passion for writing fiction and diving into my Business Building Bootcamp community for coaches and my podcast, The Coaching Edge. Meanwhile, Sarah is excited about immersing herself in patient care, family time, and generating innovative ideas for her coaching practice. We take a trip down memory lane, reminiscing about where we began in Season 1 (the "fake podcast") and marveling at the incredible journey of personal and professional growth since our estrogen-fueled conversations about nurturing and women’s midlife.
    Join us for a heartfelt review of what we've cherished about Bite-Sized Balance, the joy it's brought us, the key things we’ve learned, and the bonds it's forged. As we bid adieu to Season 4, we embark on a hiatus, ready to focus on fresh endeavors and recharge our creative spirits. This isn't goodbye; it's a "see you soon" as we gear up for new beginnings. Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey—and stay tuned, we’ll likely be back in some form or fashion again. We’ve got too much to say!

    No One Is Coming: Embracing Personal Responsibility for a Joyful Life with Sarah Baillie

    No One Is Coming: Embracing Personal Responsibility for a Joyful Life with Sarah Baillie

    In this second to last episode of Season 4 of Bite-Sized Balance, I'm joined by Sarah Baillie to explore what’s been a game-changing concept for both of us: "No One Is Coming." We dive deep into the profound reality that if our lives aren't what we want them to be, the power to change that rests solely in our hands. This awakening often hits women hard in midlife, around menopause, as the awareness of time becomes more acute.
    Drawing inspiration from unexpected places like the Trolls movie, Sarah shares her insights into personal responsibility and the freedom it brings. We discuss the big-picture and smaller-picture ways we can apply the idea of "No One Is Coming" to craft days and years that align with our desires. 
    Letting go of what doesn't serve us, whether it's social media, alcohol, or unfulfilling relationships, creates uncomfortable but fertile space for creativity and the exploration of what brings us joy.
    Join us as we discuss the difference between reacting and responding, and how saying no more often opens up the space to live a life that feels genuinely better. I also share some exciting changes in my own journey to joy, focusing on fiction writing and my business coaching program for coaches. Get ready for an episode that encourages you to take charge, make proactive and intentional choices, and embrace the freedom that comes with realizing that you are the captain of your own ship!

    Shifting the Narrative: What If It Goes Right?

    Shifting the Narrative: What If It Goes Right?

    Hey there, lovely listeners! First, I've got some big news to share with you on this short episode of Bite-Sized Balance. But mostly, I want to dive deep into a mindset shift that has truly transformed my life (and that I recently applied in relation the big decision that prompted today’s announcement): the powerful perspective shift from "What if it goes wrong?" to the game-changing question, "What if it goes right?"
    Fear and anxiety have a sneaky way of holding us back, keeping us stuck in situations and habits that don't serve us. They're like quicksand, trapping us in a cycle of hesitation and self-doubt. But what if, instead of succumbing to fear, we embraced anticipation, excitement, and hope? These emotions act as catalysts, propelling us into action and nudging us towards the outcomes we desire.
    In this episode, we unpack the magic that happens when we shift our perspective, exploring how a simple change in mindset can transform our actions, decisions, and ultimately, our lives. So, grab your favorite beverage, tune in, and let's embark on a journey of empowerment, courage, and embracing the endless possibilities that come with asking, "What if it goes right?"

Bite-Sized Balance with Wendy McCallum

Five Stars does not seem like enough to rate the information shared in Wendy’s Podcasts. They are thought provoking and focus on real issues of everyday life relating to women, self-care, and balance. I can listen to a podcast several times and still take something new away with me. I highly recommend that anyone who wants to explore how little things can result in big changes take a listen.

Brilliant

This podcast fits perfectly in my life right now as a newly sober perimenopausal woman. Wendy is brilliant, caring, honest and fun. All this comes through in her podcasts. I share episodes with all the women in my life. I do believe her coaching has saved my life. She’s a true gem.

Empty Nest

I became an empty nester when my children left home to begin their careers, they stayed home to attend university and community college. They left and returned a few times but eventually grew up and the next chapter began… weddings and the best…becoming grandparents! Your podcast was so relatable I hope you will continue with them when you once again travel through the next steps of their and your journey
