    Endings Make Space for New Beginnings

    Endings Make Space for New Beginnings

    This episode is my little love note to you ... to say THANK YOU for listening for all these years. The time has come to stop creating this podcast. It is complete. 

    Death is rebirth. It opens space for new to come in.  It is the beginning of more beautiful things coming.

    As we say in knitting, it's time to "binding off" and end the scarf,  and welcome in the possibility to "cast on" something new.

    This episode is also an invitation to hang out here, and dive into the back catalog of episodes because you have a wealth of information, and to also stay in the loop with me on www.karagottwarner.com because I have some goodies cooking over there or you.

    And I'll leave you with my favorite poem:

    He who binds to himself a joy
    does the winged life destroy;
    But he who kisses the joy as it flies
    Lives in eternity's sunrise.

    - William Blake

    Cheers to you and your podcasting success, my friend! 🥂

    229 Breaking the Perfection Barrier: The Benefits of Messy Massive Action in Podcasting

    229 Breaking the Perfection Barrier: The Benefits of Messy Massive Action in Podcasting

    In this wild, wild west of podcasting, there's a common belief that perfection and polish are necessary for success. However, what if the key to longevity and authentic connections lies in embracing our imperfections and taking messy action?

    In this "AirPods Episode," we're shaking things up with messy massive action and why I think taking imperfect action creates security and longevity for your podcast, and it leads to increased enjoyment and freedom every time you get behind the mic.

    What you'll learn in this episode: 
    Why your listeners really want to see are the rough around the edgesHow authenticity creates deeper trust and connection Taking messy action creates podcast securityGetting out of your own way means you care more about your message than the fear of not looking good enoughMentioned in this episode: 
    The Daily Boost By taking messy action and allowing imperfection on purpose, can foster more joy, which creates freedom in how you podcast, because you're doing it on YOUR terms. This doesn't mean that every episode needs to be sloppy, or messy, but rather it's about embracing how many moments in life are not black and white, and by taking messy massive action, you can use this as a tool that makes you feel like you can walk through a few puddles instead of slushing through the mud of sticking to a strict schedule that doesn't fit your life.
