The most vulnerable parts of our stories are the ones where we feel most alone.
In todayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s episode, IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m sitting down with Paulene Cruse. Paulene is a sweet friend that IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve known for several years now. But in todayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s episode, she opens up about parts of her story IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve never heard before.
She shares the story of being inspired by the work she did for her own wedding, and how that grew into her launching her own custom calligraphy business. She also shares the process of deciding to leave her full-time job and take this business full-time.
And then, it gets really stinkinÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ vulnerable. This may be the most heart-shaking conversation IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve ever had on the podcast. I cried while listening. I cried again while editing. Grab the tissues, sweet people. Paulene opens up about her experience of becoming a mom and how she didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t feel the way she expected to feel. And itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s one of the most beautiful, vulnerable truths I think IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve ever heard shared on the podcast.
