Can I Laugh On Your Shoulder?

Oct 25, 2017

"If we can't be FOR each other, then we are not confident in who WE are and all we are confident in is questioning our success." -Jamie Ivey.

To say I was honored to interview Jamie Ivey for this week's episode of the Business with Purpose podcast is an understatement. I have listened to Jamie's podcast, The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey for years. The way that she is able to connect with her guests and really minister to her listeners is such a gift. She has used her platform of podcasting, blogging, and social media to inspire hundreds of thousands of people.

The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey consistently ranks as one of the top 20 podcasts in the spirituality and religion category and was even nominated for a Podcasters Association award this year. Jamie and I talked about everything from her brief career in radio (and how she won an American-Idol-like casting call to land the job), to why being vulnerable and transparent with each other and others only makes us stronger, and how we, as women, should be FOR each other, cheering each other on, lifting one another up, encouraging each other, and celebrating each other's successes.

We also talked about how there was a point in time when her career was thriving, but her family was suffering, and how she made the hard decision at the time to step away from a thriving career... but how God had a bigger and better plan for her life. You are going to be so encouraged and blessed by my conversation with Jamie! Be sure to leave her some love and let her know how this episode impacted you!
