Can you believe it? One whole year of The Ugly Podcast! I’m so proud of my little bundle of joy, and to celebrate, my original co-host and lifetime creative partner, Emerson Lee, joins me for a vulnerable conversation about coming to terms with the messy middle. We’re both painfully honest about where we’re at with our businesses, and I had to come down from a monster vulnerability hangover afterward, which I’m sure will rear its head again as I officially release this episode. But I think it’s important to share with you all how things are going and how I’m truly filled with so much self-doubt these days. But the important thing is that I’m not letting it stop me from looking ahead and celebrating what I’ve accomplished in one year of podcasting.
We talk about the limitations we place on ourselves, coming to terms with our art when it doesn’t yield fame and fortune, and the futures of our businesses and exciting things to come.
