Trish Hunt had no idea that one phone call in her late twenties would change her life. This call, for most of us, might stop us in our tracks forever, unable to function or move past events she had no control over. Yet, in that moment, she decided that she had to move. She had to take control. She had to become, in her words, “Unstoppable.” Today we’ll share her story and her advice for those times in life when you’re simply “in the weeds” (up to your armpits in tasks going nowhere) or you’re truly dealing with some huge life events that are difficult to restart from. It’s a great reminder during our first show of these eight weeks that life moves, whether we do or not…so it’s time to start paddling.
In our headline segment, we’ll help you paddle around some rocks the podcasting world has thrown your way. One company is shutting its doors. We’ll not only help you continue to listen to your favorite shows without it (including, hopefully, this one!)…but we’ll talk about what happens when you find out your employer might be closing their doors. What do you do to move forward? OG, Joe, and even Doug will have some timely advice.
Of course, we’ll also throw out the Haven Life line to help a lucky Stacker with life’s money problems and Doug will step in with his amazing trivia.
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at https://www.stackingbenjamins.com/201
