    Solosode: Pancakes, and Your Business Reputation

    Solosode: Pancakes, and Your Business Reputation

    I was having brunch with a friend last weekend and I was served two pancakes; the chef thought the first one was a little burnt. If you were at a Denny's or an iHop, they'd probably serve it to you anyway, but this chef worked at the restaurant known for their pancakes. So he still served it, he just served it with a second pancake. It was this interaction that's prompted this episode. Episode 129 of the Moments with an MEO podcast is about why it's important to own up to your mistakes, say you don't know, and just be honest when it comes to your work. 

    In this episode I talk about: 
    The interaction at the restaurant, and how it made me feel as a (literal) consumer.Why you should be honest when it comes to your work, and your mistakes.The power of building a trusted and well-known brand.A recent mistake I've made recently (or many) and how I have owned up to them.

Episode 128 of the Moments with an MEO podcast is all about the week of saying no.

    Solosode: 4 Tips for Showing Up on Social Media When You Don't Like Your Body

    Solosode: 4 Tips for Showing Up on Social Media When You Don't Like Your Body

    It finally happened, listener: I got my first "you're overweight - go for a run" comment on a reel I did a few weeks ago. At first I was crushed, but then I used it to motivate me to create this podcast episode. We all have moments, if not all the time, that we feel like we can't show up in fear of being judged, called fat (or worse), and we choose to hide ourselves instead of showing up because of that fear. Episode 127 of the Moments with an MEO podcast is about showing up on social media for your business even when you don't feel confident in your appearance.

    In this episode I talk about:

    - My personal experience with being called fat on social media.
    - The one phrase I have been really leaning into to help me love myself first.
    - When it's time to show up, and when you shouldn't show up, and why it matters.

    ...and more!

Killer value from your new milso bestie!

Britt is the best! She brings a tremendous amount of value from military spouses across the spectrum of branches of service and life experiences. When you listen to Britt, you feel like you are just sitting chatting with your best friend (and her friend, the guest). Her guests are insanely knowledgeable in tons of different areas that can apply to both military life and civilian life.
