    Great Things Take Time | Stephen A Hart

    Great Things Take Time | Stephen A Hart

    There is a past version of you that is so proud of how far you have come!
     
    I recently shared an emotional memory of a place, a valley I was in back in December 2013, that I wanted to never go back to again. Thank God, I’ve never been back there. And that Stephen from December 15, 2013 is soooo very proud of where I am today.
    -
    Now that brings me to the point I wanted to make today and it’s this ...
    DO NOT QUIT on you because GREAT THINGS TAKE TIME!

    Life has a way of throwing you and I some tough blows during different seasons of our lives. Whether you and I must endure a day, a week or a year of hardships, the challenge is to continue to put yourself out there (like it or not), continue to get up and show up anyway. If you’re unclear about how to lead during your present or next season of uncertainty, you should join this conversation.
    Our guest today is Kandia Johnson, Founder of Kandid Conversations Global, a leadership training and coaching program to help workplace and entrepreneurial leaders tackle self-doubt, and unleash their hidden potential.
    She also launched She Deserves More, a career confidence and visibility program for mid-career women looking to position, pitch, and promote themselves as leaders--be it at work, in business, or within their communities.

    Growth is Uncomfortable | Stephen A. Hart

    Growth is Uncomfortable | Stephen A. Hart

    As our 5th anniversary as a podcast approached on February 1st 2021, I made a decision to not quit on Trailblazers.FM, but instead I decided to shift. I shifted and committed to producing weekly video live streams and then it became 2-3x a week that I was streaming.
    In many ways though, my soul ached. I stopped the podcast that was going for 5 years, and at it’s peak, reaching some 15-20,000 downloads a month.
    But I made a commitment in that dark valley, that I was going to set my pride aside and I was going to embrace being bad, until it got good for me with live stream videos.
    Today’s the first published episode in exactly one year. If you’ve missed the podcast, and you’re happy we’re back I’ll ask you to help me by doing one or all of these things:

Inspiring and Impactful

I heard Mr. Hart on another podcast and was intrigued to hear more of the wisdom he was sharing, which directed me to Trailblazers.FM. His real-life experiences are relatable and impactful. He is very honest, positive, and always willing to share a few plugs to increase your capacity to upskill. All episodes allow you to acquire content that is actionable and the ability to apply daily. This podcast is AMAZING!!! If you are interested in learning, gaining a wealth of networking ideas to apply I suggest you tune in.
