When I was on the cusp of recording the 300th episode of my podcast (Revolutionary You), I asked myself: Where do I want to take this show?
I decided to challenge myself by asking guests to commit to a 4-episode series with me where I could cover topics in greater detail and give the guest more time to shine.
I’m so glad I did this.
The result was better than I hoped it would be.
However, as a coach, I know that much of the advice I give to my busy clients is to routinely ask themselves: What are my priorities (and values) and am I living and acting in accordance with them?
I have poured a lot of myself, my time and my energy into this show for the last six years and it remains something I am so proud of.
I made a vow to be consistent with the content releasing at least one new episode every week for those six years. As a result of that consistency, I gained a following I was proud of and a following that remained with me even when I made the transition in format.
In addition, RevFit has only gotten busier and since that is my baby and it requires the most of my attention, I always have to make sure that my brick and mortar business has what it needs to thrive.
Recently, RevFit was nominated for a local business award for how we grew on the heels of the COVID pandemic. That was not just for our city but a neighboring city as well. It is a testament to our clients that we were able to thrive despite the challenges presented with the virus.
Also, I accepted a position with Dr. Spencer Nadolsky as a coach for his newly released Big Rocks Nutrition Coaching program. It’s been a great experience thus far and I’ve not only had the privilege of working alongside him and some fantastic coaches but serving another population of clients who want to improve their health.
Which means that as RevFit and Big Rocks continue to grow, my time has to be managed carefully.
To that, I am putting the podcast on an indefinite hiatus.
Revolutionary You has always been a labor of love and should I elect to resume it, I’ll have to think about what direction I’d like it to go at that point.
I’d like to thank every guest who made the last six years possible. Thank you for the conversations and, where it applied, the relationships formed from our sharing the time together.
I would be remiss in saying that my last book would have never come to fruition if it wasn’t for this show and I’m very proud of that project, too.
To all of you tuning in, six years is a long time to be committed to any project and, I have to be honest, it’s somewhat strange thinking about NOT releasing a new episode each week. This show has been such an integral part of the work I do that not taking it further at this time will take some getting used to.
However, there is only so much time in a day and in a week and I can only spread myself so thin. At a certain point, busyness and productivity are no longer badges of honor.
If we’re not careful, they can become the chains that bind us.
If you’ve enjoyed the podcast or shared episodes with others, thank you. Sincerely. It made the effort all worth it.
Should you elect to keep following the work I do, I am still committed to this blog and still aim to release new content each week on here.
Of course, if you’re local to RevFit, we’d love to serve you at the studio and if you’re inclined to need coaching on the nutrition side of things, I’d love to work with you through Dr. Spencer’s program.
Someday, I may fire Revolutionary You back up but, as someone once said with regard to making a decision: If it’s not a Hell Yes, then it’s a No.
And right now, I feel more excited knowing that there are a lot of great podcasts out there for you to tune into and I am fortunate you gave your time to this one over the last six years.
It’s my hope, in conclusion, that you’ll do as I did routinely with your own life: Revisit your priorities, be mindful of your values and align your actions and behaviors accordingly.
