In 2019, I released version 1 of the Happy Rebel podcast. And then I got scared. I dragged my feet, I got nervous, and I knew that I wasn't ready to have the types of conversations I wanted to have.
So I pulled it back. I un-released the podcast and I put it on the proverbial shelf for the next 4 years.
A lot happened in those 4 years. I quit my job as a Marketing Director to pursue my Masters in Clinical Psychology and became a therapist. The pandemic happened. My family moved to a small town of 20,000. And then we moved again. Still in the same town but to a wide-open property filled with trees, walking trails, and fresh air.
This move to wide open spaces opened up a space inside of me that made it possible for me to be ready to share my voice, to reach out and connect, and to relaunch the podcast.
I'm doing this podcast because conversations matter to me. Exploring who we are and why we do what we do, as people who have chosen the alternative path.
What's the show all about?!
Welcome to the Happy Rebel Podcast, a show where we explore the real-world intersection of intentional creation, entrepreneurship, self-development, and more. I am on a mission to uncover the authentic stories and practical wisdom of individuals who are genuinely pursuing their soul's work and living with intention.
In this inaugural episode, I'm going to do the most uncomfortable thing, and talk about myself. I share the vision behind the podcast.
You'll hear what it means to me, to be a Happy Rebel, and how this philosophy guides not only the podcast but also the Happy Rebel brand—a rebellion against the ordinary and a pursuit of happiness and purpose.
With a mix of longer interviews and shorter solo episodes, the Happy Rebel Podcast offers inspiration, empowerment, and practical tools for creators, entrepreneurs, and anyone seeking transformation. Connect with us on Instagram @happyrebel to suggest guests, ask questions, and share your thoughts. Your voice matters in this community.
Join us as we challenge societal norms, embrace the dark and the light, and dive into the stories that empower us on our path to becoming Happy Rebels.
