BIG changes and hitting reset

BIG changes and hitting reset - Episode 177 of The Slow Home Podcast

Earlier this week, over on Instagram, I did one of those annoying vague posts about big changes on the horizon and how I couldn’t wait to share them with you (sorry!) BUT the good news is, we dish all in today’s hostful.

To put it plainly, Ben and I have both been struggling over the past couple of months. We’ve been overwhelmed and lost as we felt that undeniable tug in the belly, the one that was saying we really needed to revisit our Why. When we went camping a couple of weeks ago we had the time and opportunity to think deeply on things and to really consider the way we’ve been living this year and the way we want to be living.

Combine this unease with some massive shifts in my work and the opportunities we’ll have over the next 12 months, and we knew things had to change. In today’s poggie we talk through each of those changes, what lead to them and what we have planned over the next few months.

To get all the juicy details you’ll need to listen to the show, but essentially Ben and I are going through another radical simplification.

As part of that we’ve decided to dissolve our podcast network, Jackrabbit.FM, and help each of the shows on the network to exist independently instead. I’m going to focus more on my writing (lots of news on that front in today’s show too) and, very excitingly, we’re heading off on a big adventure next year!

We also talk about all the different release dates for my new book and where to pre-order your copy, as well as our upcoming live video call for Patreon supporters. There’s a lot to cover, and we were both quite nervous to share everything in this show, but I hope you enjoy it.

Let us know your thoughts or suggestions for our trip next year in the comments, and be sure to check out the links below for info on the books and the live video call later in the month.
