    252: Beware of the BUT

    252: Beware of the BUT

    How often do you say this phrase: “Yeah, but…”

    In this episode, I’m drawing our attention to the tendency to count ourselves out, play small and cancel out opportunities to invest in ourselves.

    So think twice before using “BUT.”

Fun and useful

Maybe useful isn’t the right word. My experience is that I often listen to this podcast as soon as an episode drops, and I think to myself that it’s “fluffy” or easy to listen to regardless of my emotional resources. (Some podcasts take some serious resources, you know?) But then I find myself continuing to digest what Sarah has said for days or weeks afterward. It sticks with me and gives me work to do. But... it’s fun. Best of both worlds!

True Goddess

Sarah is truly an inspiration. Her words have power and she knows how to use them. She speaks truth into mamas, wives, and women. This podcast inspires, motivates, empowers, challenges, and loves on me each time I listen. Thank you Sarah and Matthew for all you do.
