Celebrating the power of our stories to help us rise above life’s challenges and transform them into greater purpose and authentic connections. Each one of us has a story. A story of overcoming, of illumination, of transformation, of determination. This is what Epic Exchanges is all about.
STOP Sharing Your Story
We’ve become a culture of 30- to 60-second soundbites. Of trying to get likes and followers and interaction. This is not the time or place to share your story. Please STOP.
“Our stories are not meant for everyone. Hearing them is a privilege, and we should always ask ourselves this before we share: ‘Who has earned the right to hear my story?’” – Brene Brown
When Positivity Isn't Positive
The past couple of years have been tough. And no matter how much we work on our mindset and try to stay positive, difficult things have happened. However, if we feel that we always have to ‘look on the bright side’ that can actually do more damage to our mental health.

New Year, New You?
What goes hand-in-hand with a new year? Resolutions of course! However they are generally not the best way to make lasting change – in fact, most new year’s resolutions are broken before sundown on January 1st! So what’s a better way?
“The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.” – Melody Beattie
“When your intention is clear, so is the way.” – Alan Cohen
The Key To Connection
What if I told you that there is one key to more meaningful connection? And that leads to more contentment, joy, fulfillment and even purpose?
“Connection. The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” – Brene Brown
“Connection is why we’re here; it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.” – Brene Brown
You Are Enough
At some point, we have all felt a little less than enough. Or a lot less than enough. Where does it start and how does it affect us?
“We have learned to live our lives trying to satisfy other people’s demands. We have learned to live by other people’s points of view because of the fear of not being accepted and of not being good enough for someone else.” – Miguel Ruiz
“You are enough. You have always been enough. You will always be enough.” – Etta Arlene
This week’s episode is all about being tired and knowing when it’s time to give up and move on.
“There’s a difference between quitting and knowing when you’ve had enough.” - Unknown
“When you feel like quitting, think about why you started.” - Unknown
“The temptation to quit will be the greatest just before you are about to succeed.” – Bob Parsons
Profound and Insightful
I love listening to Kelly’s stories.
They are so relatable and simple, yet there are so many lessons and insights to gain from it. It makes you think about these moments in your own life.
I end up taking a good look at my own life and reflect.
You definitely want podcasts like these in your feed!
And the 12-13 min lengths are so easy to consume.
I’m so excited about this podcast!
I’m already learning from Kelly’s intro episodes about how to be a better listener and how to share my own story.
I look forward to learning from all her interviews!
