“Don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle, or your middle to someone else's end.” – Tim Hiller . I know this quote has been floating around for a while, but it’s something I constantly remind myself of while, you guessed it, scrolling through my Instagram feed. . We are all at different stages, but it’s hard not to compare ourselves to others even though we have no idea what stage they’re at. . Case in point, my podcast. I get a lot of messages and comments about my podcast, and although I’m proud of its success, it’s because I’ve been at it for 4 1/2 years! There has been an evolution! Just check out my brand new cover art with my old ones! . The first year of my podcast, I put out a new episode every week (52 total), and I was still working at my full-time job and maintaining my blog. You know how many people tuned in? Not many, let’s just say that. But I kept going. . Now, as I approach 5 years of podcasting, I’m hoping to hit 2 million total downloads. Which sounds crazy, but there are podcasters I know who have reached higher numbers in fewer years and episodes. But it doesn’t matter, because we’re all at different stages. We’re all doing things differently. And that’s ok! . So be proud of what you’re doing, but also don’t be afraid to start something new because you think you’ll never reach those heights of the people you aspire to be. . Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle or end. . And in case you’re wondering, Season 10 of the Mo’ Money Podcast drops next Wednesday, Jan. 15 on all podcast listening platforms!

One year ago I asked women and girls around the world to call me and leave a voicemail telling their stories of sexual violence, harassment, and gender based inequalities. I didn’t want to speak on their behalf, I wanted to listen to them. This is The Left Ear. A podcast where you will find the voicemails I listened to. To protect anonymity the voices have been slightly pitched, and any identifiers have been removed. Other than that, they have not been edited. These are real stories from real people around the world. Listening to these stories can feel very intense. So please take care of yourself if choose to listen. And I hope you do choose to listen, because listening is the most important thing you can do for someone. In this podcast, I want to create a space where the listener is listening just as honestly and bravely as the speakers who had the courage to call. Your left ear is the ear closest to your heart. And by listening with your heart, you can save someone even just a little bit. The first episode is available now, and more to follow every Monday starting October 7th. For more information and resources visit the link above. All my love, D
