Seasons of Change: Leaving the Empowering Women Podcast

Updated: Jan 16, 2021

Having lived most of my life in the south, primarily Texas and Florida, I didn’t get to experience true four seasons until moving north; I now live in Madison, WI. And the seasons really are a magical thing. Beautiful, lush plants that grow throughout the summer slowly appear to lose their life in the Autumn, only to be covered by white, fluffy blankets of snow. Then, when we feel like winter will never end, Spring shows it’s face with rebirth of green buds, and the cycle starts anew.

To everything (turn, turn, turn) There is a season (turn, turn, turn) And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to gain, a time to lose A time to rend, a time to sew A time for love, a time for hate A time for peace, I swear it's not too late

And so too in our life, there are changes and cycles of many kinds. We recently announced (the Empowering Women in Industry team and I) that episode 14 of Season 2 will be my last episode for the Empowering Women Podcast. This episode will be released Sunday, October 4, 2020.

I am stepping away from hosting the empowering women podcast so that I can focus on other efforts, such as my family, writing, A Career That Soars, and a new, independent podcast (more on the latter to come). It has been both my pleasure and my honor to serve the Empowering Women Podcast listeners through the EWiI platform, to publish stories from empowering women, and hopefully, to empower listeners through the shows. It has also been a great honor and a learning experience to work with the entire Empowering Women in Industry team: Charli K Matthews, Cieana Detloff, Bethany Womack, and Rebecca Mechtenseimer. Thank you, ladies. And if you have been a listener, know that you have my utmost gratitude as well.

While I must say goodbye to the EW podcast, it's more of "à tout à l'heure" (see you later). Supporting women in their careers remains one of my biggest passions and focus areas. Thank you for swinging by here to show your continued support. I'll be sharing more on new ventures soon.

Until then, this is Mel signing off.
