Today, you're meeting one of my biz besties MONICA WOODHAMS! I had been following Monica for a long time before I even met her personally! Ever since we met, we talk several times a week! She's a wonderful creative, expert podcast host and is taking her life and biz to the next level with her Podcast Agency! So, let me introduce you to this beauty!
What is your title?
I'm an Influencer Consultant and Founder of 45F Studio Podcast Network!
What is your business all about?
I help influencers and business owners use their influence to inspire their audience on a personal and lifestyle level. I also founded a podcast network that launches and manages podcasts of influencers and female entrepreneurs.
What inspired you do to what you're doing? WHY are you doing this?
I realized that my favorite part about blogging was the connections and the people I was meeting. I realized that what fulfilled me the most was helping others really step into their voice and sharing that publicly. I have found podcasting to be such an amazing way for female entrepreneurs to share their voice beyond the pretty pictures on Instagram. I saw though that there was a barrier to entry though when it came to podcasting because the tech side of things and the moving pieces made it seem overwhelming to launch a podcast, so I wanted to do it all in one place for them so all they have to worry about is recording the inspiring episodes.
What does living a glowing life mean to you?
To me, living a glowing life means that I am living every day with intention. I'm doing the things that make me happy and if something doesn't feel right, I give myself the permission to feel those feelings and to choose to do something about it.
What advice do you have for my readers about living a glowing life?
My biggest advice for living a glowing life is to step out of your comfort zone regularly. Not just a few times in life, not just once a year, but to regularly do something that steps you out of your comfort zone. Every time I've pushed myself out of my comfort zone amazing things have happened whether it's learning something about myself or receiving an amazing new opportunity.
What 3 things are you most grateful for right now?
- My family who supports me in every way imaginable
- My biz besties (including Martina) who push me to make my dreams a reality, help me check in with myself to make sure I'm doing work that excites me and is meaningful and who allow me to be unapologetically me
- The feedback I've received from the launch of my podcast network. My heart is so happy!
What mantra do you live by?
"When I step out of my comfort zone, amazing things happen."
What would you tell someone who wants more from life, but still has lots of fears standing in the way?
I would say that everyone, even the people you admire have fears and have faced them. They're no different from you other than that they decided to take action even though it was scary. You can't wait for the fear to go away, because it wont - the magic is in navigating through the fear not trying to completely eliminate it before doing something.
What podcasts are you listening to?
The Bitch Bible
Straight Up with Stassi
What does your morning routine look like?
I wake up when feels right, I don't let the alarm clock decide for me and I had a lot of guilt about this at first but the sleep I need is what I need. From there I brush my teeth and make myself coffee. From there I shower and go into my skin care routine which is the ultimate self-care for me. I play either really uplifting music or a podcast during this time. After that I will do some personal development work like meditating or journaling.
What is your favorite self-care activity you NEVER skip?
My skin-care routine. I love how luxurious it feels to have a skincare routine and is something that I am absolutely in the present moment doing.
