The seasonal energy of this month is palpable. It’s in the crisp wintery air, the sparkling trees, and the holiday tunes that seem to start a little earlier every year. For many of us, it’s a season full of family, friends, parties, and the death of any self-control when it comes to sweets. 

So, because we’re big believers in the natural rhythm of the seasons, we’re taking this final month of the year to culminate. We’re turning inward and reflecting on what we’ve learned this year. 

In this episode, Karlee and co-host Anitza Martins dive deep into the reflection pool of not only this past year but all the way back to the beginning of Karlee’s first season as a podcaster. In this heartfelt Q&A sesh, Aniza asks Karlee the real questions about what it’s like to lead an organization centered around boundary setting and thriving… and to truly lead by example.

You’ll hear what Karlee has learned about balancing work while maintaining meaningful relationships, and where she chose to draw the line early on when it came to sacrifice. She shares why the values she holds dear are seasonal and don’t need tending 100% of the time in order to endure. Karlee and Aniza also talk about letting go of the pressure to “do it all”, and why it can be so satisfying to pass the keys to the driver's seat to the experts while you settle into the passenger side. 

If you’re ready to pause, reflect and settle a little deeper into culmination season, then this episode is for you.
