It's been a very long time since I've highlighted a post or podcast from someone else on this blog. It's also no secret that my own blogging has fallen off big time. This has been from a "perfect storm" of burnout, frustration, personal priorities, and search for a future focus/mission in blogging. I feel like "I've blogged on that" a zillion times already.
Around a year ago I listened to a podcast from someone I'm honored to call a friend. On my list of "people I've met online I must meet someday", she's right up on top. I know it sounds egotistical to say this, but I don't care. There are so very few out there whom I consider valued sources of information. I try and link them up, support them, share their work. I'm not a marketer, and although a few years ago I incorporated, I've yet to really take a leap into much in the way of selling anything or making any sort of living off of doing what I do in this area. My inaugural venture in that vein didn't work out so well, and then, as they say, life got in the way. Still, there were a few good things to come of said debacle, and a connection with Leigh is top on that list.
This person is Leigh Peele
When I listened to this podcast I was well on my way through already having figured out a lot of things that had stymied me. I was still in a very tenuous place with a lot of other things (mostly personal). I just re-listened AGAIN (I think this may well be the fourth or fifth time now) before sharing this, because I will reference this in some upcoming "off topic" blog posts. I really hope you will all give a listen, and show Leigh some love afterwards. She's a fitness person, but just lean back and apply what she has to say to whatever and wherever you are or are coming from.
Here ya go: Defensiveness is the Enemy
If you like what you hear, I'd love for you to give Leigh some support love and leave a review on iTunes. Defensiveness is the Enemy
Oh ... and I'm calling out a few people who REALLY need to listen to this.

This is not an all inclusive list by a long shot. Some may not understand why I listed who I did. So be it.
