True Confession Tuesday: I Am Famous
Where every Tuesday: I confess.
Confession: I am famous.
As excited as I am to share this interview with you, I’m more excited to tell you the story of how I became a guest on The FitCast.
I’m a huge podcast fan – you might have picked up on this by now. I also started my own podcast – which I HOPE you have picked up by now. But I still hold podcast hosts in a higher place than me. Mostly because I feel as though they have been around longer, know more people, have a bigger business, and are just better than me. (Irrational thinking).
So when I was approached via email by my new friend Andrea to interview her on my podcast and also be a guest on her podcast – I was flattered. We had an awesome time and I feel as though we have been friends for ages. The Mind Muscle and Movement episode with Andrea as guest can be found HERE if you missed it. (My episode on her podcast will be out next week – I’ll be sure to link to it).
After getting done with my interview I thought to myself “that was so fun – I want to be a guest on more podcasts!” So I got to thinking.
I listen to the FitCast. Kevin (the host) has great guests that I resonate with. He also interviews and is great friends with the people at Precision Nutrition. Since I had just written an article for PN, I thought it would be a great launching point for an interview.
Taking my own advice of having a moment of bravery and the 5 second rule – I got on his site, told him about my article and what I thought I had to offer his audience, and BOOM. He emailed back right away and said it would be great to have me on.
WHAT? Was it that easy?
The Fit Cast has been in production for over 10 years, he has amazing guests (who are clearly so much better than me) and yet, he wanted me on as a guest.
This was really a pivotal moment for my mindset.
I woke up to the fact that I have a lot to offer in education, experience, personality, inspiration and more. I have found when working for myself and building a personal brand, it’s so easy to compare to others, to diminish my own success, and to think I’m unworthy of something.
- Do you compare yourself to others?
- Diminish your own success?
- Think you are unworthy?
- Got stuck in a low rut?
- Thought you would never be as good as those other people?
I am here to tell you that you are good enough! You have so much to offer the world and do not let the comparison game rob you of your talents and values that are so needed in the world.
What you have to offer is unique to you. No one has the same story as you and no one can tell the story with your authentic voice. But if you let these crazy thoughts run your life – you will miss out on so much.
I would love to hear – have you had these experiences? What happened when you had a moment of bravery?? Did you surprise yourself?
EMAIL ME! Tell me your story.
I have so much more to tell you about my 2nd year in business (this is only one of the unique experiences I have had). It has truly been an enlightening year. I am going to share so much more in a special email on my business birthday this upcoming Saturday.
Go out, be brave, and tell your story – it’s worth sharing!!
Oh – wait – do you want to listen to the episode of the Fit Cast?? I’d love your feedback. You can find it HERE.

Just finished listening to the Fitcast episode. It’s always to great to hear a coach talk about more than just training when it comes to clients.
Hi Darren. Thank you so much for listening. I have always felt there was more to training than just the exercise and I truly believe that’s where the industry will go towards in the future. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Have a great day.
