Welcome to podcast episode #46!
Well hello and welcome to Episode #46 of the podcast. I am your host, Jenn Grace, and today I am going to share with you a couple of things that may be seemingly random but we're going to just talk about a couple of things and this episode is probably going to be a little bit shorter than most. So I have three things. So the first is that I want to share a little bit about the half marathon that I completed this past weekend. I've been sharing details of this journey with you since I decided to do it, probably I think it was over a year ago and I'm pretty certain I started talking about it on the podcast from the get-go, so I just wanted to give you a quick update on that. I want to share with you information about what's to come on the blog and the podcast going forward, because November marks - this will be going into my third year of blogging and podcasting - and going into the third year I'm making some changes that I want you to be aware of. And then I have four questions that somebody who attended my webinar last month in October, she had asked me these via email and I have been telling her for quite some time that I'm going to respond to them and I just don't have the time to type up a written response that I feel like it really deserves; so I decided that I will answer her questions on the air because I think there's something in here that you can learn from as well. So I'm hoping that by my answering her questions there's something as value for you as well. So that's pretty much my agenda for today, like I said chances are this is going to be a shorter episode than usual and I feel like that is completely okay.
First things first... my half marathon update
So I said the first thing, I just want to share with you that I have finally completed the - I almost said damn but I shouldn't say damn because it was a good thing. So I have finally completed the half marathon that I set out to complete in August, 2013 is when I first came up with the idea while out with a friend over drinks at the beach, we decided, "Hey, let's run a half marathon," neither of us being runners mind you. And we set out to do the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon which was this past weekend which was November 8th and 9th I believe the dates were. November 8th is what my medal says sitting next to me right to my left. And it was quite, quite the process. So I feel like the reason why I like talking about it on the podcast, I think there's just so many similarities between running when you have a goal and then just running your business. I know I've said this before in speaking engagements that I've done recently,
