Welcome (once again) to this summer retrospective series. One of my favorite things about this podcast is that it’s truly a community of guests and listeners, where you often connect with each other, apart from me. When guests share so deeply and vulnerably with us, the listeners, I think it’s important to stay in touch and continue to conversation, as much as possible. In this spirit, I reached out to a few guests for follow-up interviews this summer. These interviews are each 30 minutes or less and totally un-edited so you’re getting the raw thoughts of both myself and my guests.
For the second episode in this retrospective series, I’m just so excited to introduce you again to Helen Au. Several listeners asked me to bring Helen back because they had such a strong emotional response to her original episode, Ep. 057 Food in the Real Life Coming of Age Story of Helen Au. What no listeners knew until now is that I’ve actually hired Helen as a consultant for my PINTEREST strategy! We discuss her career, which we didn’t discuss at all during her original episode, the importance of Pinterest, and how to start if you’ve never considered it. We also talk about the BIG life change she’s making this summer, which led us into a in depth conversation about Helen’s minimalist lifestyle - when and why she adopted it, and how she sustains it. Finally, we answer the big questions previous listeners are wondering about - if she and her family, especially her mom, have remained in touch.
