The Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 1

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Updated February 2024

Amazing human and beautiful soul, thanks for checking out this podcast - you are listening to episode number 1, the trailer of the Your Empty Nest Coach podcast, updated the end of February of 2024. 

[spirited music begins]

This episode will give you an idea of what to expect in the podcast as well as provide updates.

I began this podcast in January of 2019 as I was adjusting to my daughter attending college out of state, and believe it or not, four years earlier than traditional age.

I’ve had many changes in my life since then, and if you are interested in all of those, I’ll include links to my website and my story pages within the show notes.

If this is your first time listening, and you are looking for quick assistance for your empty nest years adjustment, I recommend beginning with Season 2: The 30-Day Challenge to Empty Nest Success!

Within the challenge, you’ll find 30 of the top topics that have resonated with my podcast audience and clients over the last five years. I also have companion videos on YouTube as well as a printable guidebook - and it's all free! 

[ end music]

Should you dive into the back catalog of Season 1 of this podcast, you’ll find episodes that contain basic concepts, advanced concepts, guest posts, and more! With the first season being well over 3 years of my podcasting journey - you’ll find over 150 episodes there! I do share personal stories there, and I grow as a coach through that season as well.

Please note that you'll hear a variety of offerings that I tried through the years, which may or may not still be available. Always check my website for current offerings. 

Another note, my early episodes are focused specifically on mothers who are freaking out about the empty nest ahead because they walked away from a career to raise their child - or children. 

I was specific for a reason. That is where I was then, and it was the only way I felt confident enough to begin the podcast and share my voice with the world. 

Over the years, the podcast has found ears even with those who are childless, with those who are mourning a loss, and more. 

If you want to listen, you are welcome here: no matter your empty nest status, marital status, gender, sexuality, race, religion, etc..  - oh, yes,  even if you’re childless. Should you find wording I use that seems to not exactly apply to you - change the language around in your mind to one that does  apply, and know - without a doubt - that I am cheering you on!

Since beginning this podcast, the one thing I’ve been reminded time and time again is that the empty nest years look a little bit different for everyone; they change continuously; and more than likely won’t play out the way that you’ve been imagining.  Transitioning into the empty nest - or any transition - is all about learning who YOU are - becoming the C.E.O. - Conscious Effective Olympian of your life. That’s what I like to call it.  For me, that's what empty nest success is: you becoming the C.E.O. of Your Life so that you may fully embrace your journey for the years ahead.

[level up music]

Should you be curious about my qualifications… I understand. To be honest, in the beginning it was life: living life, trying things, and sharing them with you and my clients, and adjusting as needed. Over the years I’ve been influenced by a variety of sources throughout my journey. In the beginning, I leaned on these sources, but now find most of my content arrives organically through my life, through questions from podcast listeners, clients, and through inspired topics - usually while out in nature, for me.  I’ve now been coaching for over 5 years, have attended coaching training, and will continue to do so.

[level up music]

With time and some simmering.  I have been able to improve my life in ways I could never have imagined. I’ve had experiences that past me wouldn’t have even been able to dream about as being possibilities in my life. Yes, it’s taken consistent time and energy, but it has been soooo worth it. 

I 100% believe you can do this too. 

You are amazing. And if you don’t believe that about yourself, yet, use my belief in you. 

You are worth the joyous investment in yourself:  those four words are what I've replaced the word "work" with - it's so much more fun. Let me repeat: you are worth the joyous investment in yourself. To discover  who you are outside of the roles that you’ve labeled yourself: mother, father, parent, your career, and more! You are worth discovering how amazing you are; and to discover how to dream again.

[level up music]

A quick summary:  It is my passion to work with parents of high school students (and beyond) who are in the trenches with sad and possibly overwhelming thoughts about what life will look like when their "baby" heads out of the nest (and sometimes back in and out). It is the perfect opportunity to adjust your parental role and discover who you are now. 

I can’t wait for you to become the C.E.O. of Your Life!

If what I just said resonates with you, then congratulations, this podcast is my gift to you!

I invite you to follow this podcast in your favorite podcast listening app, participate in the 30-Day Challenge to Empty Nest Success, or if you’d like, consider private coaching with me. 

[upbeat music]

I can’t wait to see what you do in the empty nest years, and don’t you dare forget that YOU  ARE AMAZING!

  1. Hey, my Empty Nest Coach!! LOL, it sounds AWESOME!! To answer your questions, no, it really doesn’t matter which day of the week you send out; however, Sunday mornings are always more leisurely for me, but I’m thinking you’re gonna get a really wide variety of answers…remember trying to schedule things for homeschool events???? HAHAHAHA….as for questions, I don’t have any off the top of my head, not enough coffee, yet. I will let you know.

    1. Thanks, Beth! Sooo funny. Yes, I DO remember scheduling for homeschool events (oh my!) I definitely don’t want Monday, as I feel like most of my podcasts upload then – and it might get lost in the “noise” of it all. Sunday is an interesting option that I hadn’t considered, as everything I listen to posts Mon – Thu. – I kind of like it. Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment. Happy Sunday!
