Ep 16 - Annie F Downs: Putting the 'F' in Fun
New York Times Best Seller Annie F Downs, joins Paula for a full-on "fun coach session," focusing on the importance of prioritizing fun in your life and how to rediscover what brings you joy. The "That Sounds Fun" author, talks about her time spent teaching, how she knew it was time to walk away, and her journey to discovering her number one skill set: entertaining people until they learn something. She also talks about the tough lesson that comes with identifying the difference between a dead end and a detour, and accepting that you can't manifest either. The successful podcaster, who is single and has no children, opens up about trying to find love at 40 and explains why she feels people in relationships can be doing much more to help their single friends. Paula and Annie also talk about the importance of honoring all kinds of moms during the month of May, including those like Annie who serve as a sort-of spiritual mother figure to so many.
