So many advice podcasts talk about elevating your career or changing your lifestyle to find success. Sometimes, they make it seem like we always need to be working to better ourselves by doing more. Karlee and the “Messy and Magnificent” sisterhood want you to do the opposite, though. While Karlee certainly inspires her listeners to take action with every one of her episodes, sometimes that action is taking a step back and seeing a bigger (or even smaller) picture.
Karlee has entire episodes about defining success and using your own reference points for success that are really about you, instead of being linked to other people’s perceptions of you. She’s spoken about the concept of building a stronger basket and not letting things drain you of your energy, inspiration, and motivation, even if that’s your own job. She talks about thriving in a hustle-driven world, recognizing when you’re being stingy when it comes to your needs, and setting holistic, sustainable goals to prevent becoming overwhelmed in an ever-changing world.
Something that Karlee is particularly adept in is storytelling, and she had episodes dedicated to the craft of it. In her recent episode “What’s Your Story? | How storytelling can help us connect more deeply with others,” she talks about opening up the lines of communication through storytelling. She dives into the neurobiological roots of this human practice, the specific layers of storytelling that make it an ideal way to communicate, and what superheroes can teach us about storytelling.
On “Messy and Magnificent with Karlee Fain,” she’s touching on all aspects of life. Recommended to us by Podsauce guest Ginni Saraswati of “The Ginni Show,” this podcast is perfect for anyone looking for validation, inspiration, and actionable advice. She’s talking about finances, mental health, communication, careers, and finding all of the space in between worrying about all of that.
