Belinda's Tuesday Top 95 – From Lavender Farms to Downtown Shops: A Story of Connection

Episode Summary –

In the this episode of “Work from Your Happy Place,” Belinda discusses the importance of trusting your instincts, making meaningful connections, and following your dreams.

“You've got to trust your instincts because they never lead you wrong.”

Here are some key takeaways from the episode:

1. Trust Your Intuition
One topic that Belinda discusses is the importance of trusting your intuition, even when it's scary. Many people ignore their intuition due to fear of change or confrontation, or because they're desperate for a certain outcome. However, Belinda suggests that finding the right opportunity or person is key to avoiding these situations, instead of settling for someone or something that may not align with our intuition.

2. Make Meaningful Connections
Making connections is another key topic covered by Belinda. She discusses the “3 connections” or “connect calls” that she started training people on in a previous episode. The idea is to connect with three people a day starting in the fall, as people are feeling paralyzed to make connections due to the effects of COVID-19. She also emphasizes that people who don't make connections can become more depressed and lose confidence, which is why it's important to connect with a specific person for some reason. It's also important to follow up and not forget details.

3. Follow Your Dreams
Belinda encourages listeners to follow their dreams and trust their instincts. She shares a personal story about having an idea for a subscription box for 5 years before COVID, but procrastinating on it. She believes that having the subscription box in place before COVID would have made things less difficult. She emphasizes that it's never too late to pursue your dreams and to broaden your horizons.

4. Seek Medical Care When Needed
In addition to trusting your intuition and making connections, Belinda also discusses the importance of seeking medical care when needed. She shares a personal experience of losing her voice for four weeks and being unable to work, until she finally went to a doctor and received a steroid pack. She encourages listeners to advocate for themselves and not settle for a condition that may “just run its course.”

5. Experience the Beauty of Lavender
Finally, Belinda shares her excitement about a personal care product in a subscription box that is from a farm in Michigan. The farm is located 45 minutes from the Belinda's home, and it has 46 acres of Lavender that will bloom at the end of June. The creator is opening the farm to the public for the first time, and it's going to be a spectacular sight. Belinda is planning to go to the Lavender farm with a videographer to conduct a live interview with the creator for the podcast.

In conclusion, it's important to trust your intuition, make meaningful connections, follow your dreams, seek medical care when needed, and experience the beauty of Lavender. These tips are just a few ways to find your happy place at work.
