I’m a guest on a podcast!
Last year I MC’d the Women in Travel conference. I told an audience full of 400+ influencers that my goal was to be a guest on a podcast. And Lisette Austin, aka Jet Set Lisette, delivered. She asked me to join her podcast, The Globe Trotter Lounge, to talk about global careers.
It was a delightful conversation full of fun. I’m thrilled how it turned out. In the episode I share all kinds of advice on global careers, the future of work, and why travelers are in the best position to navigate our new world of work.
I honestly could talk to Lisette for hours because she has such a fabulous perspective on all things travel (plus she loves languages too!). Subscribe and listen to her other podcast and episodes while you’re visiting.
I’m in the final sprint to finish the first draft of my book in the next four weeks which means I’m ignoring pretty much everything else. Except Twitter.
I’ve struggled all day, every day to ignore Twitter since I started writing this book back in October. I’ve failed on that pretty much every day. Though, I have reduced my addiction to my carefully curated information hose. I wonder how much more quality procrastination writers had before Twitter.
Sometimes though Twitter comes through and delivers something so helpful and timely that I’m reminded for all the reasons I love this site over any other.
Behold the best advice on writing ever:
I’ve had three mantras to get me through the first draft:
finished not perfect
the purpose of the first draft is for it to exist
let the editor sort this out
Those mantras help me with the writing process. They keep me moving forward.
But Ava’s advice validated all the feels that happen when you see your raw, messy thoughts masquerading as a future book.
I screenshotted her tweet and read it every day right now as I push towards the finish.
Share it with anyone you know who writes.
