Can you freakin’ believe it because I still can’t!
My friend Lexi and I have started our very own podcast, The Social Sisterhood!
It is just crazy how this all came together, + I’m so grateful to be on this journey.
So I want to give a little back story of how this came to be. Because it’s honestly just so awesome.
How We Met
Lexi and I live about an hour a part + there’s about a 4 year age difference between us (yes, I’m the old hag). She is not married + has no kids. I’m married (for the second time) + have 3 kids. So to say we’re a bit opposite would be an understatement. At the beginning of 2020, we had never met + had no clue who the other was.
When quarantine happened, I had a local blogger reach out to me (that I also had never met), + asked if I wanted to do a Zoom call with some other bloggers + talk about blogging. I thought, what the heck, why not!
On the second call, I “met” Lexi. We followed each other + became part of a text group for bloggers. We also became affiliates for a couple of the same boutiques.
Once restaurants opened back up in our area, a group of the local bloggers met up for lunch (+ when I say lunch, I mean we met at 2:00 + didn’t leave until 6:00 because we were having THAT much fun!). Lexi cracked me up the whole time + I just loved her attitude.
After that lunch, she text me saying how much she admired me + looked up to me + she probably has no idea how much that meant to me. We continued to grow a friendship from there.
How Our Podcast Was Created
Well a few weeks ago, I was really going through an internal battle. I was wondering if I should quit my part time job to pursue my own business + dreams. I just wasn’t quite ready to take that leap…
That same week, Lexi text me + said she wanted my opinion on something. She said she really wanted to start a podcast, but didn’t know if it was an attainable goal.
I was like “GIRL I WANT TO START A PODCAST TOO!” Actually, I’ll put our text convo right here so you can see exactly how it went down…
I called Lexi + told her about the uncertainty with my job + how I was really feeling a push to quit. Well, little did I did know that 2 days later, I would be FIRED! Yeah, it’s all going to be discussed on the podcast, so stay tuned. But wow, talk about, “HERE’S YOUR SIGN!”
So I told Lexi we were doing this dang thing + 2 days later, we met up + decided on everything for our new podcast: the name, the color scheme, the mission, vision, ideal audience, hosting platform, release schedule, etc! + of course we snapped some pictures (including the coin we flipped to decide on our name!).
The next weekend, we recorded our intro + first 3 episodes. We didn’t waste any time! Just a few days later, our teaser episode went LIVE on Spotify + Apple Podcasts. It all happened so fast + feels like a literal dream.
We have received so much love + support during this new venture + we are forever thankful. It means so much to us that people want to hear what we have to say! We have a lot to tell you + we’re so excited to get it all out there.
Our podcast, The Social Sisterhood, is all about cultivating a sisterhood of like-minded women who are creative, ambitious, + committed to making their dreams a reality. We encourage you to be your own boss + go after your dreams. You can + WILL be successful + we are here to help. We will discuss all things business, entrepreneurship, branding, blogging, personal development, social media, + so much more.
Lexi + I are opposite in many ways but have so many things in common. We are both driven + determined to be successful. With that mentality, we cannot be stopped.
