    Ep. 05 - itsme Zen Runner, Podcaster & Community Builder

    In this installment of The itsme Podcast I interview Zen Runner, leader of a community called the Slow Runners Club. He talks about how he turned a podcast about weight loss into a tight-knit group of runners who aren't speed-focused. Now, through SRC, he represents "the back of the pack" and is hoping to build more awareness of the demand from runners like his community members.

    Zen gives great tips for how to build communities in general, and his story shows how social media can be leveraged to do great things. Find him on all platforms @zenrunner.

    Ep. 04 - itsme Marni, Personal Wing Girl

    I'm excited to bring you an interview with the lovely Marni Kinrys, a.k.a. your personal wing girl! Marni has dedicated her career to doing what may seem impossible: helping men understand women.

    We talk about what it means to be a wing girl, and how Marni overcame her shyness and got into this fascinating industry, creating a niche for herself by giving men a woman's perspective. She also discusses the common breakdowns in communication between men and women, why they often lead to dating failures when they don't have to, and how she and her husband first got together.

    Ep. 03 - itsme Lyneka, American in Paris

    It was so great to have my friend Lyneka on the show, a writer and social media consultant who overcame her fear of flying and is living in Paris! We caught up while she is back in the U.S. for a visit to talk about how she did it, and what her experience has been like, from learning a new language to meeting new people, encountering racism abroad, and more.

    Like it? share it! And tell us if you have any experiencing overcoming a fear, traveling abroad for the first time, or if you have questions about it.

    Ep. 01 - itsme Sky, Team USA Ultrarunner

    I sat down for a coffee with a top ultrarunner, Sky Canaves, to talk about mental perseverance, how to overcome discouragement, recovering from injury and the fascinating world of 24+ hour races! Really inspiring stuff for anyone who's ever tried to do something that seemed impossible.

    My plan for this podcast is to take you guys to meet more inspiring people like Sky, to share and learn from their amazing stories and maybe apply a little of their wisdom and experience to our own endeavors. You can watch shorter versions of these podcasts in video form, plus other content, on my Youtube channel: http://youtube.com/itsmelori
