What does it look like to grow slowly when no one is watching? How do we know if we are supposed to keep pushing through – even when it feels like things are happening painfully s l o w? Whether you’re a business owner, mom, creative with a vision, or all the above – it can feel so defeating when it seems like the world around you is achieving the things you desire. If you’ve ever fallen victim to the comparison monster or the ‘if I could only…” syndrome – this episode is for you. Listen in as Mary brings on singer-songwriter, JJ Heller, who has experienced both the slow and expedited seasons of the creative path. After landing a song on You Think You Can Dance, the catchy melody accrued over 1 million views on YouTube. But JJ’s story is much more than numbers and metrics. Listen in as JJ shares her story around anxiety, overcoming the fear of slow growth, what to do with the ‘in between time’, and how to find redemption in the hard parts of the journey. If you relate to the words of the ever-fabulous jazz legend, Miles Davis, “Man, sometimes it takes you a long time to sound like yourself,” – this episode is for you, friend.
