What inspired you to start your podcast?
Reflection and the COVID-19 2020 re-assesment of life. 2020 has been since a defining year for us all; personally, it has allowed me the opportunity to really see whether I am true to my belief in thinking we can manifest our dreams. I see this life, where it is taking us, and there are so many wonderful things coming, we just have to take the time to understand that a bud planted in the ground looks different in the following spring.
Tell us more about your work/life outside of your podcast.
I have been a Beauty Therapist for 20 years and with the changes in 2020, I am now a self-employed/stay-at-home mom. I started an online business which incorporates Spa recommendations, beauty, wellness and spirituality.
What is your show’s USP?
My aim is to offer unique solutions to women regarding wellness, presented in a creative way. I believe our relationship with our own emotions is fundamental to our environment and the experiences we attract into our life. Further understanding of our concept of love can develop positive connections to other perceptions of love, aligning with the intention of creating a beautiful love life.
What is one of the greatest challenges you have personally faced with your podcast?
The biggest challenge is the uniqueness that comes with my podcast, I consider it to be quite niche and so can raise a few eyebrows, however, it also develops a relationship with alternative thinking.
What was one of your favorite episodes you’ve ever done? Why does it stand out?
Each new episode is my favourite, the one I am currently working on is about love, and finding love. It is the first of 3 parts and out on Monday 13th July. Listen here.
What is one thing you have accomplished with your podcast thus far that you are most proud of?
Starting my podcast! I never thought I would be able to share myself and thoughts in this way. I am happy that I found Podcasting or that Podcasting found me. It was by chance that I saw a message on LinkedIn, at the beginning of the UK COVID-19 lockdown, suggesting I should try Podcasting. I am happy to embrace what feels like a new arena, it feels very creative and emotionally rewarding.
What is one major milestone that you would like to accomplish through your podcast in the next year?
For the podcast to be a solution for many in ways they had never thought about previously, creating a connection with themselves that is honest and healing.
What is a trend or development in the podcast industry that you foresee happening in the next few years?
The rise of podcasters becoming personalities in the mainstream audience.
What is one of the best pieces of podcast-related advice you’ve ever received & why?
Share, share, share!! Connect with everyone, as you never know who needs what you are offering.
What is one of the worst pieces of podcast-related advice you have ever received & why?
I have not received any bad advice, everyone’s experience is based on the things they been through, all aiming to find out what works.
What are some of your favorite women-hosted podcasts (besides your own)?
Small Doses with Amanda Seales and Ask Women Podcast: What Women Want. Both are thought-provoking podcasts.
Can you tell us about a time when you took a huge risk/did something you were scared to do, and it totally paid off?
I am in the process of doing that now. I am in starting a 3-year degree in Business in September, which will be amazing for my career journey. My eldest child will be leaving home to go to another university to study his degree, and my daughter will be entering into her Secondary School years, so it will be a very studious household.
Are there any great podcast-related resources you love that you would like to share?
Joining as many podcasting-relating Facebook groups as possible, as the experience of others provides the best insight. I have seen some great questions asked in groups and the answers are pearls of wisdom.
Is there a charity or cause you care about that you would like to share?
Stop The Traffik charity, raising awareness for human trafficking
How do you feel you’re making a positive impact and generating change through your podcast?
I think the Clarissa K Explains It All podcast offers a positive alternative to solutions. Every woman believes love, attraction and sex should be part of the relationship with their partner, where one’s needs in partnerships create challenge, intrigue, and romance. The knowledge discovered about love through relationship astrology can help exercise how to value the individual concept a person has about love and marriage.
