Done is better than perfectConfession time: it took me years to launch The WOWW Campaign Podcast. I recorded the first episode once I realized that done was better than perfect. In fact, realizing perfection doesn't exist was an epiphany of its own. I had to break up with the idea of perfection before moving forward, but this took a tremendous amount of self-awareness because I had no idea that I was tied to perfectionism in the first place. I felt so strongly about my breakup with perfection that I even wrote "it" a letter that you can read here. I began listening to podcasts in 2013 and became quickly addicted. It's in my DNA to want to understand how things work so I immediately began to do research on the topic and one week later, I was educated on the technology logistics, but I didn't use this knowledge until 2017. In fact, I did so much research that I became paralyzed in this space. If someone asked about the podcast, I didn't use the words "paralyzed" because then that'd mean I knew there was a problem. Instead, I hid behind the mask of perfection and always told myself that I needed to know "more" and "get my ducks in a row." Funny thing is, I couldn't tell you where to find those ducks or what they even looked like. Executing on an idea makes all of the difference. Doing something to move the plan forward is what makes the dream happen. As Nike says: just do it. Once it's done, you'll know what is going right and what could use some adjustments. Things will never be perfect and that's why the most important aspect of taking action is accepting that "action" will always be the secret ingredient. Constant action and a steady pace separates a dream from reality, so today I encourage all of you to self-reflect and uncover what's keeping you from taking a leap of faith? This message doesn't only apply to entrepreneurship - it applies to all aspects of our lives.

Aug 29, 2017

While preparing to publish today's podcast interview with Susan Petersen, Hurricane Harvey began to unfold in Houston, TX. Texas was my home for 9 years and a place that will always own a piece of my heart for a multitude of reasons. I wrote a blog post about the impact the state of Texas had in my life and how I've chosen to get involved and help the victims of this landmark event. From now until the end of 2017, I will be donating 50% of our profits from our "FEMALE is my greatest asset" & "Unstoppable" collection to help the people of Houston that will endure financial hardship from expenses related to the massive flooding. If you'd like to read the full blog post about how WOWW Campaign will help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, you can do that through this link. In the meantime, I urge you to get involved in any way possible - our country, our neighbors, our children, and humanity need our help. Complete strangers from all different walks of life coming together during times of crisis are what make America great.

Susan Petersen is the founder of Freshly Picked. In 2014, Susan appeared on ABC's Shark Tank, which is where I first discovered her and those adorable baby moccasins that have people {including celebrities} addicted to her brand. I don't have children, but her style and overall "vibe" caught my attention from the beginning. When my friends started having children and posting their pictures across social media channels, there was a common denominator: Freshly Picked baby moccasins. I knew then that I wanted to interview Susan on The WOWW Campaign Podcast.

In this interview, Susan shares how her role as a mother, wife, and entrepreneur has evolved and taken on many forms. Fortunately, Susan has picked up many valuable lessons and insight along the way that has not only helped her, but others around her as well. We discuss whether or not women can have it all and the logistics required in order to run an efficient and "happy" household. Because happiness looks different for everyone, in this interview you'll hear us emphasize the importance of finding what works for you. Today, Susan has 96 employees and her baby moccasins can also be found in Nordstrom stores.

Susan Petersen's entrepreneurial journey will leave you feeling inspired and thinking you can do it, too. Her unapologetic perspective about finding the right components that help her household work together is courageous and admirable because subconsciously, she's encouraging women that are listening to own and stand behind their voice as well. Thank you Susan for embracing vulnerability and paving the way for aspiring female entrepreneurs to see what they can be.

Dina Semsch Psicóloga Dina Semsch es una mujer emprendedora y psicóloga en El Salvador. En esta entrevista la Campaña WOWW y Dina Semsch habla sobre varios temas como la importancia de la salud mental, experiencias personales, y formas de pensar que evitan la progresión colectiva. "La misma agua hirviendo que ablanda una papa endurece un huevo" es una de las frases favoritas de Dina. Esta frase representa el hecho de que es importante encontrar las lecciones en el caos porque la trayectoria de todo ser humano es diferente. Cuando suceden eventos en nuestras vidas, nosotros le asignamos un significado y eso afecta nuestra experiencia que después causan ciertas emociones. En esta entrevista, Dina Semsch habla en detalle de como nosotros automáticamente reaccionamos en situaciones difíciles como pasar por un duelo y la importancia de reconocer lo que estamos sintiendo en el momento porque al no hacerlo, esas emociones se acumulan. Conforme va pasando el tiempo, el cuerpo, cerebro y corazón solo tienen cierta capacidad de guardar dolor hasta que ya no se puede más. En mi experiencia personal con los duelos, puedo decir que es muy cierto. Por presiones sociales y costumbres familiares, escondí cualquier emoción "negativa" pensando que solo así me sentiría mejor. Lo que pasó 30 años después fue que mi cuerpo ya no pudo esconder más al enfrentarme con la muerte de mi abuelita. El dolor se volvió algo tan fuerte que tuve que reconocer muchos otros dolores para hacer espacio en mi mente y poder procesar la importancia de cada uno de estos eventos. Espero que la entrevista con Dina Semsch les traiga inspiración e información que les sirva para poder procesar y enfrentar situaciones en sus vidas.

Being "happy" requires us to constantly put in a conscious effort. In today's Words of Wisdom podcast episode, I discuss the process of choosing to see the positive and/or lesson in every situation. It's not an easy thing to do and unfortunately, most of us think we're going to automatically wake up in this state of bliss every morning, which couldn't be further from the truth. When we're upset {like I was a few weeks ago when I lost all of my sentimental items} it's easy for the anger to take over our mind and our heart. But in these moments, it's pivotal we seek the silver lining. To be happy, we have to crave the lessons so we can turn the page and move forward.

WOWW Campaign would love to know what your greatest life lesson has been. Please fill out this short survey and submit your response that we will feature across our social media channels & in one of our podcast episodes {we promise it won't take you more than one minute}. http://bit.ly/WOWW-IWish

Natalie shares a lot of her wisdom and insight as a woman in the tech space and someone who advocates for individuals to make their passion serve as their purpose.

No existe una sola solución para las cosas. Cuando estamos buscando mejorar en aspectos personales, a veces queremos un libro que nos "componga" y enseñe el camino. En temas de núcleos familiares, nos apoyamos en las expectativas sociales y culturas, algo que no debería de ser porque todas las dinámicas varean y no siempre lo que funcione para alguien mas va funcionar para nosotros. En este episodio platico sobre la importancia de explorar distintas cosas y estar bien con el hecho de que lo que nos vaya parecer tal vez no sea lo que esperamos. El punto es encontrar lo que vaya con nosotros sin importarnos que digan los demás.

Today's WOWWednesday podcast episode is about focusing on strategies, solutions, and norms that work for you, and you alone. In this short episode, I talk about the importance of staying hungry for information until you find the right blend of habits that help you get to the person you want to be. If there were a one-size-fits-all solution for every mental health illness or family circumstance, someone in the world would be very wealthy. However, there are a plethora of self-help books, podcasts, conferences, and many other personal development tools because we're all different and require various things to make us happy. This includes looking at the dynamic within your family nucleus and building what you think is best, not what your neighbor will approve of. I'd love to hear what you think about today's Words of Wisdom Wednesday! Leave your comments below!

Hoy en el podcast hablo sobre el poder que trae el dolor. Hace poco, perdi todas las cosas sentimentales que había coleccionado los últimos 31 años de mi vida. No fue accidente y la destrucción fue resultado de las malas intenciones de alguien de mi pasado. Este incidente me causó muchísimo enojo, lo cual descubrí estaba tapando otros sentimientos mas profundos. Estar enfurecida estaba tapando el hecho que en el fondo yo estaba muy triste por mi perdida y la decepción de este individuo. Explorar estas emociones me hizo dar cuenta de la realidad y que partes de mi necesitaban reconocimiento. Espero que este episodio los inspire a reflexionar las emociones en sus vidas para ver que descubren bajo la superficie.

Today's Words of Wisdom Wednesday episode is slightly different because it's based on present-day events that I'm navigating and have forced me to look within at my own pain to see how that can be transformed and used for greater good. I recently lost all of my sentimental items that I kept for the past 31 years of my life which made me extremely angry. But anger is a secondary emotion - it's used to cover something else that's going on beneath the surface. For me, the root of the problem stemmed from extreme pain. I share what happened to me recently to encourage more introspection in order to uncover, address, and move forward in life. You can't heal what you're not willing to acknowledge.
