Impostor syndrome.

You know, that little voice in your head that says, “Who do you think you are? You can’t do THAT! You'll never be as good as so-and-so. It's only a matter of time before everyone finds out you don't have a CLUE what you're doing.”

This is a show about that.

Producer, singer, mentor, storyteller, and urban meditation aficionado Andrea Klunder takes you inside the minds and hearts of artists, healers, creative entrepreneurs and anyone who's willing to take a risk, think outside the box, move beyond self-doubt to live their creative work, and live their best lives.

Episode 106. "Community is even more so important when people do feel disconnected physically.  So it's still important to be able to figure out -- we are now virtual and even any of the in-person components are now kind of shifted -- So how can we make sure that nobody feels as though they're not included?"

~Erica Courdae, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Consultant

Everything I knew about structure I’ve had to reframe, reexamine, re...structure over the last 5,000 weeks of shelter-in-place. Multiple times. There have been days in which my professional systems and personal habits have operated at next-level peakness*. Glorious stretches of productivity. Seemingly boundless hours high-vibiness*. And then…

The inevitable at-capacity crash. Chances are, you’ve wandered around in that fog yourself. Multiple times throughout the pandemic’s never-endingness*. 

Erica Courdae is a Baltimore-based, multitalented mother and entrepreneur who’s navigating the deep end of uncertainty with realistic optimism and structures-in-progress (rather than hyper-aspirational, GOOPiness).

As a salon owner, creator of the podcast Pause on the Play, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) consultant she’s feeling her way through the process of managing professional and personal expectations.

What does “safety” look like IRL for a salon owner? How does a DEI consultant convey her message in an exclusively virtual environment? What the heck does homeschooling a kindergartner and a second-grader look like? How does self-care exist now that outlets for simple pleasures are off-limits? 

*terms created to mildly amuse in week 5,000 of lockdown - it’s come to this.
