EP 83: Looking Back to Move Forward. With Jeanne-Marie Paynel

Looking Back to Move Forward. With Jeanne-Marie Paynel

I do love good end-of-year planning; looking back to move forward is important to take stock of what has been before planning what is to come. Join me in this last episode of 2022 as I go down memory lane to better plan 2023.

Once you’ve listened, come share your takeaways or ask questions in your dedicated FB podcast group

What We Talked About

  • Reviewing the year; personal, podcast, and projects
  • Defining what a doula does and my volunteer experience being one
  • The Parenting School and how you can join in 2023
  • Finding an accountability group 
  • So grateful to be able to celebrate my father’s 90th
  • A Montessori pilgrimage of the soul, while in Italy
  • Proud of my children’s adventures and accomplishments 
  • Always trying something new to keep learning
  • Why it’s a good idea to have a digital detox every once in a while
