    185: Why Haven't You Done the Thing You Keep Saying You Want To Do?

    185: Why Haven't You Done the Thing You Keep Saying You Want To Do?

    Why haven't you done the thing you keep saying that you want to do - start the podcast, write the book, create a course, or make YouTube videos? 
    Whatever your thing is - why haven't you done it? What obstacles or issues keep getting in your way? 
    This episode is inspired by two books I'm currently reading:
    1. The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday
    2. Traction by Gino Wickman
    I'm sharing how I'm using inspiration and practices from both books to help me name my own obstacles and work through them, so I'm more consistent in publishing my own podcasts, YouTube videos, social media posts, and blog posts. These are all things I say I'm committed to doing for my business, but have struggled to do consistently in years past.

    184: Are You Hanging on to What's Holding You Back?

    184: Are You Hanging on to What's Holding You Back?

    Are you holding yourself back by just hanging on? I had this epiphany during a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class a few weeks ago. The Universe loves to get my attention while I'm training to drop in a bit of clarity for my life. You'll also get to hear my favorite quote from Thelma and Louise.

    183: Liar Liar Pants on Fire

    What do you do when you realize you've been lying to yourself? When you're lying to yourself about the little things, how can you trust yourself when it comes time to take the big actions that help you reach big goals and bring big dreams to life? It's time to start telling the truth.

    The Brassy Broadcast is Back

    The Brassy Broadcast is Back

    Welcome to the latest incarnation of The Brassy Broadcast. The podcast that has taken long periods of rest and has served a variety of purposes since it launched in 2014. I'm Jen Edds, The Head Broad in Charge at The Brassy Broadcasting Company and this is my podcast. 
    There are a few definitions of brassy when you look them up online. Most definitions paint “brassy” in a negative light of being harsh, loud, tasteless, showy, or resembling brass in color.
    And then….when you scroll down….you see brassy described as brazen, bold, audacious, unashamed, unrestrained by convention and propriety. 
    I want to live a brassy life - A life lived boldly, brazenly, audaciously, and unrestrained by convention and propriety.
    In my world, Brassiness thrives in the intersection of curiosity, creativity, and caring no more what most folks think.
    I'll be sharing what I'm learning along my own adventures to live a bold and brassy life. Here’s your disclaimer: I’m no subject matter expert. Far from it.  I’m just a curious broad full of questions.

    181: The Louisville Adventure - Angel's Envy, a Ghost Walk, and Perryville Battlefield

    We road-tripped to Louisville, Ky, in this latest Brassy Roadcast adventure. Highlights included a bourbon tasting at the Angel's Envy distillery, a guided ghost walk through Old Louisville, shopping, and dinner at La Bodeguita de Mima. As always, there was a little drama along the way.

The 'Nudge' I Needed

Hi, Jen! I've been listening to you for the past few months as I worked on the launch of my podcast. Your information is very helpful and extremely encouraging for first time podcasters. One lesson I will hold with me is your message regarding releasing a crappy podcast. Giving us permission to not be perfect when we launch our podcasts. And your most recent episode on Imposters Syndrom is such a good reminder to us all! Keep up the great work!

The Real Deal

I just love Jen's refreshing and read voice. She makes me laugh, she makes me think, and she provides valuable content! Keep it coming!
