The Nitty-Gritty:

  • Why podcast advocate Elsie Escobar created a personal process for looking back over the year and setting her intentions for the year to come
  • How setting clear boundaries helps her to stay on top of her commitments and execution
  • The tools she uses to look back over the past year and how they give her a fresh perspective on what she’s experienced

Do you know what you did this year?

Do you know how many blog posts you published? How many emails you sent out? How many customers bought your product?

Have you kept track of the accolades that have come your way? Or the speeches you’ve delivered? Or the interviews you’ve done?

When the year is hurtling toward a close, it’s easy to lose track of everything you’ve accomplished already. All you can see in front of you is a to-do list that absolutely must get done before you can relax and enjoy the holiday cookie spread.

But that’s precisely why taking a look back is key.

This month, we’re examining how we can take better care of ourselves as small business owners.

We’re putting aside cliche self-care tips and digging into how entrepreneurs actually engineer their routines, procedures, and operations to care for themselves.

This week, my guest is Elsie Escobar. Elsie is the co-host of LibSyn’s podcast The Feed as well as their community manager. She’s also the co-host of She Podcasts, a podcast and community of over 14,000 women podcasters. Her mission is to help more people use their voice and make an impact through the craft of podcasting.

With everything she has going on, it would be easy for Elsie to forget what she’s accomplished in a year.

It would be easy to dismiss the small wins and important insights she’s experienced.

That’s why Elsie has developed a personal process of looking back, assessing her opportunities, setting intentions for the new year.

Elsie and I talk about the energy of the end of the year—and how it can contribute to feeling like we need to catch up no matter how much we’ve achieved. We also talk about the experience that catalyzed her will to look back and set intentions, as well as how she’s trained herself to recognize her true capacity.

Now, let’s find out what works for Elsie Escobar!
