Happy 2022 everybody! I’m pretty sure all of you know that I took a real vacation at the end of the year to make sure I rested properly. 2021 was a BUSY year, but a lot of great things came along with all of that busy.
By the time December rolled around I was BEAT, y’all hear me. Completely done! Old Marta would have slept for a couple of days and then jumped into doing THE MOST with catching up on creative projects. I even made myself take a break from that and it was HARD. But I’m so glad I did because when I clocked back in mid-January I was on FIYA to get Showing Our Sass reworked and back in business.
Now, those of you who have been around for a minute know that the first iteration of Showing Our Sass happened in 2020. I LOVED that version but as with many things it needed to grow and change and I am ABSOLUTELY in love with this new format and I truly hope you will love it too cause I’m dropping episodes every week on Saturdays at 9AM Central. No for real, I have all seven episodes done and they are getting scheduled TADAY! (I’m so excited!!)
I decided to do something different and create an entire season where I dive deep in with only a couple guests and give us time to really dig into a topic across multiple episodes. Season 1 I spend the entire 7 episodes with Esi Akyere Mail Arthur Snodgrass talking about the various ways and reasons we should take control of our health choices. It’s amazing the difference a little time and editing can make in sharing stories that are about things that make some people uncomfortable.
Be sure to check your YouTube notifications and Subscribe if you haven’t already. For some reason YouTube doesn’t always send notices when people you follow post things. But I’ll have new videos for you once a week on Saturdays starting January 29, 2022 (tomorrow) 9:00AM Central (10:00am Eastern)
So get ready to watch, leave comments and thumbs up. Watch the video all the way to the end (put it in the background if you gotta, cause…stats LOL). Let me know what you think, please because I want to make this bigger and better.
But wait, there’s more…
Yeah, I decided to launch S.O.S. as a proper podcast too so now those of you who prefer to just listen can do that everywhere you grab your favorite podcasts. Here’s the link:
Oh, and remember to tell your friends about the Patreon. Especially, if you have creative friends who are looking to join a collaborative community. Y’all know I will pool resources to get good work done and 2022 feels like a year of tremendous growth potential to me. Let’s GO!
