Angela Shen ~ Founder and CEO of Savor Seattle Food Tours

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** Today I have a returning guest, Angela Shen. Angela has made lemonade out of lemons with regards to dealing with this pandemic. As you might recall from episode #45, Angela is the Founder and CEO of Savor Seattle Food Tours. When things started to shut down in Seattle at the beginning of the pandemic, I watched as Angela made really quick changes, pivots as everyone says these days. She created a new path for her company that fits right in with the company’s mission while also supporting local businesses, providing a service to locals and keeping her business alive. I’ve been keeping up with what she’s doing and have been so impressed with how she’s managed to go with the flow and I wanted to bring her back on the podcast to chat. I was most interested in how she knew so early that she needed to make changes and I wanted to find out how she went about making them. This is a shorter, check-in episode that I’m doing today. Lemme know if you like this format and if there’s any past guests that you’d like to hear from and I can reach out to them to bring them back! Just email me at beth@shesboldpodcast.com. OK – with that, please enjoy this conversation with the ever-inspiring, Angela Shen. ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?

Beth and Chris Fagan on Coping During the Pandemic

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** This is where you’ll hear one-on-one conversations with women who have inspirational stories to share. They are entrepreneurs, authors, musicians, spiritual teachers and adventurers. Though they come from a wide variety of backgrounds, what they have in common is that they approach the world by seeing the possibilities, not the obstacles. And I know that’s not an easy thing to do these days. But today’s guest, Chris Fagan, manages to see the light in every situation. Chris joins me on occasion to do a deep dive on a topic and today we wanted to chat about how we’re moving through this pandemic. Of course she finds this all challenging, but she has a great perspective on the uncertainty of our situation and how to make the most ...

Caroline Van Hemert ~ Alaskan Author, Adventurer and Wildlife Biologist

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** Today’s guest is Caroline Van Hemert. Caroline’s new book is The Sun is a Compass which chronicles her (and her husband’s) 4,000 mile, six-month journey—all human-powered—from the coast of Washington State, north to the Arctic coast. But her book isn’t just an adventure travel memoir. Caroline is a wildlife biologist so she’s not just writing about her adventures of rowing, skiing hiking and canoeing. Her observations include a scientific and environmental perspective. As you listen to her describe this journey, I think it will leave you longing for doing something as remote and adventurous as this. Maybe it’s just me but she certainly has me wanting to just go away for six months and come out the other side of this pandemi...

Maria Hines ~ Chef and Author

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** Today’s guest is Chef Maria Hines. Maria is quite a well-known figure in the world of cuisine here in Seattle area and we are certainly lucky to have her here. In 2005 she was named one of the Top Ten Best New Chef’s in America by Food and Wine Magazine. In 2008, the New York Times recognized her restaurant, Tilth, which opened in 2006, as one of the ten best new restaurants in the country. And in 2009, she won the James Beard Award for Best New Chef: Northwest. Maria has a new book that just came out called Peak Nutrition: Smart Fuel for Outdoor Adventure. The book came from her experience as a climber and her realization that she needed to fuel properly in order to get the most out of her climbing performance. As you can well i...

131 ~ Jennifer Louden ~ Author, Why Bother

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** Today's conversation is with Jennifer Louden. I had really wanted to chat with Jen in-person. And we had hoped to do so when she was scheduled to be in Seattle on a book tour in June. But that all went sideways when travel (and pretty much everything else) was grounded. So we decided to chat remotely instead. And I’m so glad we did. You might know Jen as a pioneer in the self-care world. She’s a best-selling author and teacher of workshops, helping people lead a meaningful life through wellness, creativity and mindfulness practices. She has a new book out called Why Bother: Discover the Desire for What’s Next. There’s a couple of things I want to point out about this book and our conversation. At first glance, you might read th...

Laureen Nussbaum ~ Author and Holocaust Survivor

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** This conversation is with author and holocaust survivor, Laureen Nussbaum. This was recorded in-person almost four months ago, at the end of February. It was one of my last in-person conversations that I had for the podcast prior to the pandemic. Under most circumstances, four months would feel like yesterday. But so much has happened since then that it feels like eons ago. I was all ready to publish this episode in early March but then things just started to shut down, at least here in Seattle. As I re-listened to this conversation during the editing process, Laureen’s description of not being allowed to go outside when she was growing up (as a Jewish person), just hit too close to home for me. For very different reasons, obvious...

Q&A - Dealing With Travel During a Pandemic (Part 2)

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** As you may know, over these past couple of months, the podcast has taken a bit of departure from my usual long-form, in-person conversations with guests. Instead, I’ve been addressing different aspects of dealing with this pandemic and recording (remotely) episodes that are a bit shorter. If you go back, you can hear how to be happy during a pandemic, how to stay fit, how to journal, how to boost your immune system. All sorts of useful info to help you get through this trying time. This week is yet another slight departure. You’ll recall that a few weeks ago I shared a Q&A about travel that was recorded with “my” tour people via Zoom. I invited past and future WanderTours participants to join me so that I could answer their que...

Dierdre Wolownick on Journaling During Difficult Times

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** Today’s guest is Dierdre Wolownick. You might remember Dierdre from episode #83. She is the author of The Sharp End of Life (as well as many other books), she’s the oldest woman to have climbed El Capitan (she happens to have a great teacher, her son Alex Honnold, to thank for that) and she’s a lifelong journaler. I’ve been journaling the majority of my life and, for me, it started nearly 30 years ago when I began traveling. I’ve documented all of these trips I’ve taken but I also journal even when I’m not traveling. And it’s been a wonderful way for me to get my thoughts down during this pandemic. Dierdre and I talk about how journaling can be an excellent way to get to get to know yourself and to help you get through diff...

Laura Musikanski on Staying Happy During a Pandemic

Enjoy these uplifting and positive conversations? Support the podcast through Patreon and get access to special audio and written content, be part of a private Facebook group (ladies only) and enjoy other benefits only for supporters of the podcast! ***** How are you all dealing with this? It’s kinda crazy to see how we’re all going through this health crisis and how it’s different depending on where you live, what your days are like (are you working overtime or are you sitting idle) and also what stage you are in in your lockdown (if you’re locked down at all!). So, when they say we’re in this together, I don’t feel like that. It’s just all too different for each one of us. And I think most of us are feeling lonelier than ever, right? But I think no matter what phase or stage you’re in, there are some things we can definitely agree with. We’re trying to find happiness, stability and some sort of normalcy each day. And even then, I know there’s guilt with feeling happy rig...
