Episode Summary

Welcome back to the show! 

Today we have a great guest on a great topic - failure, resilience, and coming back from a setback.

I can't wait for you to five into Season 3, episode 1 with myself and Amy Shoenthal.


In This Episode

  1. Can you tell me a little bit about your background, how you got into journalism and your line of work in resilience and overcoming setbacks?
  2. Tell us about your book, The Setback Cycle. It looks so wonderful! I’m so excited for you!
  3. When facing a setback, some people might feel stuck or overwhelmed. Resilience is of course a key factor in bouncing back from setbacks. What are some actionable steps that our listeners can take to begin their journey towards bouncing back from a recent setback in their lives?
  4. Can you share some inspiring stories or examples of individuals who have successfully bounced back from significant setbacks? What can we learn from their experiences?
  5. Setbacks can sometimes lead to self-doubt and a loss of confidence. How can someone regain their self-esteem and belief in themselves after a setback?
  6. Are there any common misconceptions about setbacks or resilience that you would like to address and share?
  7. I like to ask - what would you tell your younger self and because we’re talking about setbacks, failure and resilience, I’d love to know - WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR YOUNG SELF?
  8. Anything else you’d like to share that we didn’t cover.
  9. Where can out listeners reach you?
