Change Starts Here: The Origin Story
Dustin Odham discusses how hosting the podcast has helped him evolve through guest interaction as well as his goals for Change Starts Here going forward.
I love Brad Montague’s work as an illustrator, so I knew I’d love this episode, but it was just so lovely to listen in on these little bits of wisdom (re: life, parenting, and work) - pop up so effortlessly in their conversation. Dustin does a great job of creating a casual and easy-to-listen-to environment for the guest to shine, but also asking some really insightful questions. As a mom in the same season of life with little kids, I came away with some tricks to try as well, so it felt like time well-spent. Thank you!
Pleasantly surprised and totally captivated the entire time. Perfect for working moms who are trying to balance everything life throws at you.
This first episode was a much needed dose of encouragement for creating space for enjoyment in the everyday grind of family and life. I’m ordering the book!
