200 | Talk About Seasons
Happy 200th Episode!
In this first episode of season 2, Renee talks about how to know when you're in a new season of life - and how to try to navigate that. She also takes a moment to acknowledge the milestone that 200 episodes is - and despite her Enneagram 3 tendencies, takes a moment to celebrate. There's also another milestone regarding Wedding MBA - but we'll leave you to listen for that one on your own.
Because, the journey of success isn't merely about reaching milestones; it involves recognizing and celebrating the progress we've made along the way. By commemorating achievements like hitting a significant number of downloads on a podcast or obtaining a personal certification - did you know that Renee is now a Certified Co-Active Life Coach? - we acknowledge and validate the hard work behind these milestones. This practice cultivates a sense of accomplishment, reinforces our drive, and fuels our ambition for continued success in the future.

Just listened to the Lauren Lavender episode, what an eyeopener! Thanks Renee
I found this podcast about a month after launching my wedding planning and design business and it has been so incredibly helpful in affirming decisions I have made, making me rethink some systems or procedures I have in place, and helped me realize that it is okay to hire something out. I don’t have to do it all, WHAT A SURPRISE!! Haha
