Taking a Pause: A Note From Julie

Published on: 29th May, 2024

Tune in to hear what's happening in my world and when the podcast will return.

Firstly, I want to thank you for your incredible support since we started this journey in 2020. It's been an amazing ride connecting with you all and our fantastic guests.

Life's throwing some exciting challenges my way, including a new book project focused on empowering Generation Z in networking and career beginnings. To give this my all, I'm taking a break from the podcast for a bit.

But don't worry, it's not goodbye! I'll be back with updates and maybe even some new episodes in the future. In the meantime, why not revisit some past episodes?

Thanks for being part of this journey. Stay curious, keep networking, and stay tuned for what's next!

Drink of the week…. Farewell Fizz

Speaker:

Hey friends.

2

:

It's your host, Julie Brown.

3

:

And today's episode is going

to be a little bit different.

4

:

I want to sit down with you.

5

:

One-on-one to let you know what's

happening with this podcast going forward.

6

:

First, let me start by saying

how much your support has meant

7

:

to me throughout this journey.

8

:

When I started this podcast during

the chaos of that first COVID

9

:

summer in 2020, I never imagined

the incredible connections.

10

:

It would bring both with you.

11

:

My wonderful listeners.

12

:

But also the remarkable guests

who have graced these episodes.

13

:

And shared their knowledge.

14

:

Each episode has been a treasure

trove of wisdom, laughter and

15

:

countless shared experiences.

16

:

But life has a way of presenting

new opportunities and challenges.

17

:

Doesn't it.

18

:

And right now I find myself at a

crossroads, a juncture, or I need

19

:

to make a difficult decision.

20

:

You see.

21

:

Lately, my travel schedule has been a

whirlwind between jetting off to deliver

22

:

keynotes and workshops and delving

into research for a potential new book.

23

:

My plate is simply overflowing.

24

:

And while these ventures

are undoubtedly exciting.

25

:

They also demand.

26

:

My end divided attention.

27

:

The idea for this book has been

bringing in my mind for some time.

28

:

It's a project close to my heart.

29

:

One aimed at empowering generation Z

guiding college students through the

30

:

maze of networking in our shoring them

into the world of their first jobs.

31

:

I firmly believe in the importance of

instilling these skills early on, and I'm

32

:

committed to bringing this vision to life.

33

:

So because of all of this and after

much contemplation and soul, searching.

34

:

I've come to the realization that I need

to step away from the podcast for awhile.

35

:

It's not a decision I've made lightly.

36

:

Believe me.

37

:

This podcast has been my sanctuary.

38

:

It's like an old friend and

a constant source of joy and

39

:

connection during turbulent times.

40

:

But this is not the end of the podcast.

41

:

It's not a goodbye, but rather a

SIA in a little bit kind of thing.

42

:

Right now, the time that I dedicate each

week to the podcast needs to be time.

43

:

I spend focusing on crafting

a compelling book proposal.

44

:

One that I hope will catch the IVR

publisher or agent who shares my passion

45

:

for empowering the next generation.

46

:

And if you have any connections

in that world, please pretty,

47

:

please make an introduction for me.

48

:

If you feel comfortable.

49

:

And who knows.

50

:

Perhaps this hiatus will only be

the beginning of new and exciting

51

:

chapters for this podcast.

52

:

I'll be keeping in touch, sharing

updates, some new episodes along

53

:

the way and eagerly anticipating

the day when we can reconvene and

54

:

continue our weekly get togethers.

55

:

In the meantime, I encourage you to

revisit some of our past episodes to

56

:

cherish the wisdom and insights they hold.

57

:

And remember this isn't farewell.

58

:

It's simply a pause.

59

:

A chance for me to embark on a new

adventure while holding onto the cherished

60

:

memories we've created here together.

61

:

So friends.

62

:

I bid you farewell for now.

63

:

With a heart full of gratitude and

excitement for the journey ahead.

64

:

And until we meet again regularly, take

care, stay curious, and keep networking

65

:

and meeting new people where ever you go.

66

:

And now onto the drink of the week.

67

:

Come on, you knew I wasn't going

to end this episode without a

68

:

farewell drink and today's drink

is the farewell fizz cocktail.

69

:

And here's what you're going to need.

70

:

One ounce of gin, two ounces of simple

syrup, a half ounce of lemon juice, and

71

:

then champagne combine the gin syrup and

lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled

72

:

with ice and shake vigorously and strain.

73

:

Into an odd cold champagne glass,

and then top with champagne.

74

:

All right, friends.

75

:

That is all for this week.

76

:

As this podcast takes the hiatus.

77

:

I'd like to extend a

special request to you.

78

:

If you've enjoyed these episodes

and haven't yet left a review,

79

:

I'd greatly appreciate it.

80

:

If you could take a moment to do so.

81

:

Your feedback means the world to me

and helps others discover my show and

82

:

what we've done together up until now.

83
