Serving up a fresh perspective on success. Our mission is to introduce you to interesting and inspiring women who live all different versions of success. We believe success is an ever evolving concept - it is different for everyone.

We believe life is about finding happiness despite detours and imperfections. Embracing the reality that you aren’t always going to have it together and quieting the voice in your head that says you haven’t “made it yet.” Appearing to have it all is not as important as feeling fulfilled for the day, week, month or year. Accepting and celebrating that what will make you feel fulfilled can and will change over time - and it's not the same for everyone.

We believe that authenticity is more important than perfection. Our most meaningful relationships and connections are created based on authenticity.

    155: Meredith Crawford of One Sheepish Girl, Summer Rebroadcast Series

    155: Meredith Crawford of One Sheepish Girl, Summer Rebroadcast Series

    Meredith Crawford is the founder and editor of the blog One Sheepish Girl. She loves knitting, crochet, photography, travel and so much more. She recently published her first crochet pattern book, Crochet with One Sheepish Girl. It is available for purchase on Amazon.com! In addition to her work with One Sheepish Girl, Meredith is also the communications director at a non-profit in Dallas, TX.
    In today’s episode Meredith opens up about how she struggles with self esteem, how she started a blog her junior year of college as a creative outlet for knitting, crocheting, and all things yarn. She shares how she used her blog as a way to document her journey to work on her confidence with a series called “blogging for confidence.” She describes the series as “silly challenges” to push her out of her comfort zone -things like wearing red lipstick and going to see a movie alone.
    We dive right in and talk about what success means/is for Meredith.
    “I think success for me is more than a list of accomplishments. It’s really understanding who you are, appreciating who you are and then putting that into what ever it is that you do.”  
    “You are not your resume. You are not your instagram profile.”- @onesheepishgirl
     

    Meredith goes into detail about her journey after graduating college. She was in search of a full-time job but instead found herself with a book deal. While she fully admits the book deal is and was an amazing thing, she didn’t feel successful. She desperately wanted to find a job that would allow her to move out of her parents’ house.  She wanted to feel like she was doing what she was supposed to do, find that job after college and show she had made it and show that she was successful. She did find a job and quickly realized it wasn’t going to bring her to where she wanted to be.
    “I did all the things I thought were going to make me feel successful or accomplished and it kind of did the opposite. It sort of brought a lot of these insecurities to the surface and just tore me to shreds.”

    153: Kara Lamerato, Wedding Planning Podcast, Summer Rebroadcast Series

    153: Kara Lamerato, Wedding Planning Podcast, Summer Rebroadcast Series

    Kara is the owner and creator of Kara’s Vineyard Wedding, a handmade boutique that focuses on one-of-a-kind wedding decor such as custom place card holders and Premium DIY supplies. She is also the creator of the Wedding Planning Podcast.
    After graduating with degree in Mass Communications and English, Kara worked in financial planning, and saw success through the corporate lens of earning promotions & making money. She recognized her passion for entrepreneurship in 2011, & built her handmade business while “on-the-clock”. Two years later, the birth of her daughter was the push she needed to make the leap to self employment, and she hasn’t looked back! Kara treasures the ability to work for herself while providing a second income for her family, AND raising her two children full-time. She also loves spending time with family and friends, drinking wine, & reading US Weekly.
    In today’s episode Kara shares a definition of success we think so many of our listeners will appreciate and understand.
    “As long as my family has everything that we need and some of the things that we want I feel successful.” Kara goes into detail about what gave her the nudge to leave her full-time job and take her online shop from a side business to her family’s second income while staying at home with her young children.  She shares the steps she took to feel comfortable and confident about leaving her full-time job including financial financial goals to meet before she walked away from the corporate world!
    “I became compulsively driven to get this business grown to a point where I could leave that corporate job and have the freedom to be home full time with Stella” Kara also talks about how she had a major shift in her way of thinking.  She was constantly comparing herself to people who were still in the corporate world, or other WAHMs who had a different schedule/situation. She realized she need to stop comparing herself to others and focus on what she was doing.
    “Success isn’t about material things. It’s about being happy at the end of the day.”

Binge listening like it's Netflix!

I've been binge listening while I get dressed to go to work, while I am at work, on the way home from work, and while I work in my workshop at home. Can't get enough of all of these wonderful guests and their stories of "success" as well as Jen and Danielle's very candid coffee talks and their savvy businesses advice and tips! Thanks to all of you ladies who have shared your vulnerabilities, struggles, fears, insecurities, as well as your triumphs! Lots of these topics really hit home as a woman and mother trying to balance it all. I love She Percolates!

Can hardly wait another day for She Percolates to resume after a summer hiatus. Love their interviews with inspiring makers and the spontaneous laughter of Coffee Talk Friday's. Jen & Danielle are so gracious, you feel as though you are their new best friend. Super informative and thoughtful podcasts for listeners in the handmade community.
