Obsessed!

I love the quitcast and am so excited to have it as a podcast now!

So confused

This podcast uses so much jargon. What’s an “intuitive”? What’s a “high strategic”? I listened to four episodes and couldn’t follow what the host was saying because she uses so many terms without explaining them. It’s possible this podcast only makes sense after you’ve already learned the ideas elsewhere.

Finally a Podcast!

I have been listening to/watching the QuitCast for years on YouTube. I’m so happy it’s finally available in podcast form for us audio junkies!

I know there are tons of writing podcasts and advice for writers out there…but Becca and her team have a Strengths-based approach that literally no one else has or is doing for authors. This unique perspective has revolutionized my writing life, not only by teaching me to take advantage of the way in which I’m already “wired,” but by helping me integrate my writing goals into my personal life.

Becca is a wonderful, compassionate and highly intellectual guide for helping one understand the connection between the mind, the body, the outer world and even one’s relationships, and the influence that all of these interconnected factors have on one’s ability to write—or not to write. She has drastically reframed concepts of productivity, writer’s block, and success/failure for me in a way that is far healthier and more holistic, enabling me over the years to move forward in my life in ways I never anticipated.

I hope this new format brings in many more authors who can benefit from what Becca’s putting out there!
