315: If Your Story Doesn’t Empower You to Move Forward, Change It
The story that you assign something either propels you forward or holds you back because the meaning of anything is only what you give it. Betsy shares some thoughts about why she is behind right now and discusses how she has shifted her story to propel herself forward. She encourages you to do the same by giving yourself the grace to change your story to be the best you can be and to know that you are empowered to rest when you need it and do the work when you are able.

Welcome to the Art of Living big podcast. My name is Betsy pake. I’m an author, a speaker, and a trainer of NLP and hypnotherapy. And I’m focused on helping you understand and design your life with the power of the subconscious. This podcast is designed to help you think differently about what could be possible for your life. Now, let’s go live big. Hi, everyone. Hi, welcome to the show today. So this is a, this is gonna be a weird little show.
I think this is gonna be a weird little show. Here’s the start, let me set it up for you. Alright, so I’m in my living room, I never recorded my living room, but my daughter is sleeping in my bedroom.
I’m gonna get to that in just a minute. I’m behind on my podcast. Do you remember back in January, I hired a Podcast Producer that I love. And she has been so flexible with me. So that I only need to get three episodes ahead, right. So she has time to do all the work that needs to be done. And I’m behind. So it’s really important that she gets it on time. So she can do what she has to do. And I’m like, really behind. I’m really behind. And I don’t like that. Because I want to be respectful of other people. And I’ve had so much to say that I kept thinking I need like all this time to tell you. So I think I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, there are like some bigger things that I want to share and teach you that I’m going to try and record this week. But right now I need to get an episode to her before she wakes up and realizes that I haven’t put a new episode in the hopper for last week. Okay. So I was like, I’ve got a record, what am I going to record. And so I thought, I’m gonna record and tell you why I’m behind. Because I think we all have things in our lives that happen, ah, that make us feel like we’re really behind. And then we have a story about that thing. Right, I’m behind. And I want to be respectful. So that means I’m not being respectful. I want to be on time, which means I’m not taking and being a good steward of my business. Like there are a lot of things that I could say about it, like a lot of story. And I say story because the meaning of anything is only what you give it. That’s it. Like every little thing in your life, if you could think of some things right now that are bothering you, or holding you back. It’s just a story. Like you have a story about it. It’s something that you think about it, maybe something someone else told you about it. It’s the way that you think about the thing. And the way that you think about the thing either propels you forward or holds you back. And so I realized I haven’t been keeping up. And I want to tell you why. And I want to tell you what my story is. So if you’ve heard me talk before, on the show about how my daughter was sick. I mean, I’m I want to say this has probably been like 10 years, she’s had really bad anxiety and depression. She was on the show last summer. And we talked in depth about it. She was doing so great. And she went off to college, she went to SCAD. And then in an earlier episode this year back in maybe like June or July,
314: It’s Your Responsibility to Get the Value You Need to Be Your Best Self

Today, Betsy shares a quick story that could shift something for you in terms of where you find value. She encourages you to be aware of situations you’re staying in, even after you’ve already gotten what you need.

And I’m focused on helping you understand and design your life with the power of the subconscious. This podcast is designed to help you think differently about what could be possible for your life. Now, let’s go live big. Hello. Hi, everyone. Welcome to the show today. Welcome to the Art of Living big. So I have I have lost my mind. Okay, so I, I sat down, I’m like, I’m going to record this episode. And the episode that I’m going to record is actually one that I wanted to share last week, and life just got away from me. So I’m like, I’m going to do this today, I’ve got some time, I’m going to jump in and do this. And when I sit down, I have like a little green marker that shows me like how loud my voice is, you know. So it like goes up as I talk and goes down when there’s a silence. And I can see that it’s moving even though I’m not making any sound. So I’m like, it’s the air conditioner. And I’ve never really noticed my air conditioner before. But now I’m like obsessed with the fact that their conditioner is so loud. So I went and I turned it like air like way up. So it was a higher so that the thing would shut off. But it didn’t shut off. And so then I was like, I’m gonna just change it from auto and just turn it off. I mean, I truck, shut the whole thing off, I shut the whole unit down. Okay. And then I’m like, why is it still showing this green? Why is it still look like I’m talking like, I’m sweating. Now I’m like, been working on this for like 20 minutes trying to get the stupid thing to shut up. And it’s my dishwasher. It is my dishwasher. So I hope that you can’t hear the hum in the background. Apparently, I have hypersensitive ears today. Obsessed with every sound that’s happening. But welcome. Welcome to the show. So all right, so I’ve got a list of things that I want to talk about. And some of the things that I want to talk about, I think are going to be really long, like entire long episodes on their own. And so today, what I want to do is tell a quick story. So I want to tell a quick story, because I’m curious if it shifts something for you, in terms of where you find value. And I think that this is really important because we are ultimately in charge of the value that we get from everything. And when I say everything, I mean that like, you’ve probably heard me talk before about being at cars, and taking ownership of every experience that I have. Now, can things happen, that I don’t want, absolutely. But when I take ownership and I say I’m at cause I get to decide how I feel about this, then that empowers me. And that’s the place that I want to live from. I want to live from a place where I’m really empowered. And one of the things that I’ve been saying the last like couple of weeks at my house is like is that the best version of me? You know, if I do something I say that doesn’t make me feel like the best version of me. Or if I’m,

312: Recognizing the Value of Domestic Labor with Kate Rosenow
Kate Rosenow is a business systems strategist and the owner of Work Well with Kate, where she gives women tools to streamline their businesses so they can be more profitable and less busy. In 2014 she founded Mavenly + Co., an educational platform for women looking to build a business on their own terms. During this time, she realized that the key to designing a sustainable, profitable business was well-built systems, and Work Well with Kate was born.
She has worked with hundreds of women business owners across the country through group workshops, online training, and private coaching to equip them with the resources and mindset they need to build businesses that work for them rather than the other way around. She’s the host of the award-winning weekly Women, Work, and Worth podcast on iTunes. Her insight and advice have been featured in Forbes, Fortune, Real Simple, and Business Insider.
Part of Kate’s most recent endeavor is a children’s book called All Mom’s Work, which is intended to spread the conversation about domestic labor and invisible labor to teach kids that the work it takes to keep a household running is work, and it’s equal to work that is done in an office. In this episode, Betsy and Kate discuss the motivation behind Kate’s book and why it’s so important to have this conversation with children.

Now, let’s go live big. Hello, everyone. Hi, welcome to the show today. Welcome to the Art of Living big. I’m excited today because you don’t have to just listen to me today. I have a friend. I have Kate rose. Now on the show today. Hey, Kate.
Hey, how are ya?
Hey, I’m so good. I’m so excited to have you here. Because you have you do all the things. So can you tell everybody a little bit about you? And what you do?
Absolutely, yeah. Thanks for having me, Betsy. So my kind of LinkedIn title, if you will, the like one that you’ll see on the internet is I’m a Business minimalist and mentor. And that’s kind of a fancy way of saying I help women business owners really simplify and streamline their work so that they can be more profitable and less busy. So that’s the work that I’m doing day in and day out. And by nature of working with a lot of women, I work with a lot of mothers who are juggling business, but also juggling all of these other roles and responsibilities in their life. So part of my most recent endeavor is writing a children’s book called all mom’s work, which is really a conversation about domestic labor and invisible labor, and how so many women are wearing so many hats that are maybe unrecognized. And then also a program called business needs baby. So how do we prep our business for whenever we’re preparing for our family, but also extends to you know, if we have those older children or even children that are out of the hou...

Now, let’s go live big. Hi, everyone. Hi. Welcome to the show today. Hello, fellow adventurers on this journey, this lifelong journey. I wanted to, I wanted to just share some thoughts today, maybe this will be a longer episode, maybe it’ll be a really short episode. I’m not totally sure. But I have some thoughts as one does. And I thought, let me come on and just share these in whichever way that they they need to come out. And so I’ve got my coffee, grab some coffee, maybe a journal, you might have some thoughts as I am speaking, and there might be things that you want to revisit. And one of the things that I’ve been thinking about recently, and I think I talked about this on last week’s episode, but I had been I have been, I don’t want to use the word working, but I’m going to, I have been working towards just really raising my vibration and doing the things that I need to do to stay in a really high vibe place. Now, what does that mean, to me, to me, being in a high vibe place means that I’m lingering on the things that I want, I feel really optimistic and happy. When things don’t go the way that I expected. Nothing happens, I don’t have a super negative reaction, I’m fine. Being in a high vibe plates means that I notice when patterns are taking over, that aren’t serving me or when I’m having reactions to things that aren’t serving me. Because once I see them, then they can never be the same, right? Because I’ve seen the pattern. And then I have like consciousness and I can change it. So staying in a high vibe place, really is that to me, it’s it’s just feeling good. And when I noticed something that normally would have made me feel bad or made me go down like the rabbit hole of overthinking that I’m not doing that. And in all of that, so I’ve been doing I think I talked about this in last week’s episode, but it one of the things that I have been doing is just really noticing where I am, like, what’s the what are the emotions that I’m having? And I’ve been using a lot of the processes from Abraham Hicks to raise that vibration now. It’s almost everyone want to say? What do I want to say? It’s almost surprising. how good I feel. And I have found like the last few days, my reaction to that. Like I’ve been really high vibe now for several weeks. Like it feels really good every day feels really good. When you think that would be really great, right? Like your sounds pretty good, Betsy, it’s not the things aren’t going wrong or that I don’t have problems or that there aren’t things for me to worry about. I just find that I’m not. But what I’m now finding is this sort of like a skate like I’ll feel really good. I get up I feel super good. Today, I brought my dog for a walk. Like I felt good. Like I was sort like I was conscious of not dancing while I was listening to my music and walking, but I sort of was dancing. Like, I think I could dance enough where it would make me feel like good because that’s what I want to do. But not like a crazy person.
310: How Can You Start Seeing the Solution Instead of the Problem?
Think about the places in your life where you think you’re stuck. How can you move forward? Betsy suggests that sometimes all you need to do is get really present. When you are present, you’ll start seeing the options you have available, and they aren’t always something you have to do on your own. Sometimes you may need a team to offer a different perspective to help you shift. Either way, we live in a universe of polarity, which means if you’re stuck, there is another way. If you have a problem, there is an answer.

And I’m focused on helping you understand and design your life with the power of the subconscious. This podcast is designed to help you think differently about what could be possible for your life. Now, let’s go live big. Hello fellow adventurers. Hi, everyone. Welcome to the Art of Living big this week, I am home I actually recorded this episode, I was in Denver, I’m going to tell you this whole story. But I was in Denver, and I recorded I was trying to move the recording from my phone where I record it with this little this little shore mic, and I was trying to send it to my laptop and my downloads folder was like corrupted I was on with support Apple support for like two days, we finally figured it out. But then somehow it’s not even on my phone anymore. So I don’t know if in the me sending sending sending it did something but I figure it is all for the best. And maybe there was a different way for me to say whatever I said that will be even better. So that’s how we’re gonna start the episode. This is about to be an amazing episode, I guess. So it’s a little bit of a coffee talk episode because there’s a couple different things that I want to tell you. And if you’ve been here for a while, you know how I kind of find meaning, I guess in the every day. And so that’s where we’re going to start. So I the last this past week has been really, really fun. have wondered if I should go back. I’m let’s, let’s travel back in time. Let’s start from the very beginning because this actually might really help you. Alright, so about six weeks ago, you may remember that I did an episode that said I had a really hard six weeks, like I was going through a really hard time, a lot of things were changing. I was feeling like a lot of angst and anxiety, really, I was feeling the anxiety and nervousness. I didn’t even know what it was related to. But I think it was just like an up leveling and stepping into new things. And all of that felt really unsteady and uneasy to me. I did some hypnotherapy, I bought some calm magnesium gummies like I was meditating, I was like doing all the things and, and honestly, all of those things played a part and really helped. And then probably around six weeks ago, my husband and I were talking and we decided that we were going to almost do like a super focus on what it was that we really wanted. Now, I think he kind of went along with it. I don’t know that he has something that he needed to super focus on to get what he wanted. But I know that I did you know, or and I still do I have things that I want to call in my life experiences that I want to have. And so for me, I didn’t want to be like worried about a lot of the things that I was worried about. Now. I’m just speaking for myself, personally. But I didn’t like watching the news, because every time I was watching the news, I was getting really upset. Now there are certain news programs that I really, really like. And there’s certain TV programs that reference the news or talk about things that I r...
Loved listening in!
Just listened to Trish from episode 208! It’s so cool to hear about all these things! Can’t wait to continue to listen to more of Betsy’s episodes!
A lot of the podcasts I’ve listened to that are “self help” come across as unattainable and I stop listening. Betsy is relatable and has a pleasant voice (a deal breaker for me). I just can’t say enough great things about this podcast. She’s given me so many great tips for so many areas of my life. I’m so thankful to her and this podcast.
I’ve been listening to Betsy for almost a year now and I honestly can’t say enough good things about this podcast. I have learned so much from her and her guests, and I am SO appreciative!! Thank you, Betsy, for sharing your honesty and knowledge!!
