What's Here Now, Kid? Podcast

Hosted by Joe Schum, ACC, CPCC, CC-IQC and Kathryn Sabol, ACC, CPCC

Because often, the only thing standing between you and your dreams is you. W.C. Fields once said “Never work with animals or children.” It was one of his most famous quotes and yet he secretly admired at least one of them: children. Their candor and perspectives are the inspiration for this podcast co-hosted by certified coaches Kathryn Sabol, CPCC (kathrynsabol.com) and Joe Schum, CPCC (soulpatchhippo.com). “After opening a conversation with my five-year-old and asking him to set daily intentions with me, it became clear that, as adults, we make life way too complicated,” recalls Kathryn. Her son’s comment also sparked the idea of exploring life through the eyes of a child by asking “What’s Here Now, Kid?”. Their answers are often funny and bizarre while other times quite meaningful and deep. We then take these answers, whatever they are, and cull through them to find the nugget of truth we need to reconnect to a simple life of abundance, success and love. Join us on this journey. Listen to what kids say about life. Be inspired. Make a choice that moves you forward today.

Ep 010: What Jazzes You Up In Your Life?

June 12, 2018 |

Themes of Energy and Commitment emerge in this episode.

We create a hierarchy of filters as we move through life that give us the boundaries that guide us and keep us safe and hopefully successful. These buffers and layers of life can impede our freedom though. How do we get back to that unadulterated time of pure joy? What is our opportunity as adults to live a less filtered life? Come find the joy in where you are at any given moment.

Abundance! How much of a good thing do we need?  As adults we spend present moments looking for how we can get more out of something when what we’ve accomplished is pretty damn cool.

Ep 007: The Authentic Expression of You

May 1, 2018 |

Plain and simple, are we acknowledging when we are being and doing things, taking actions, “having fun”, that it’s just a way of expressing ourselves? And, what have we given up because we weren’t “awesome” at something in exchange for that authentic expression?

Many times when we do have an activity we believe is authentic expression, we tend to make work out of it. The thing that we supposedly enjoy is only enjoyable when we score well, achieve a personal record, create the perfect art, write the unforgettable story. The miss on what’s authentically wonderful about us is hijacked by setting difficult milestones that must be attained every time to be really truly happy.

Check out the takeaways on this episode, it will shift you back to having great times and great moments and being authentic in your expression of who you are, every day.

And stick around for what’s coming up in the next episode and a studio blooper to make you smile!

Ep 005: Feeling good in the morning

April 3, 2018 |

Kathryn jumps out in front on this episode, motivated to coach us on her morning routine. Among the gems here is that a good morning can be set up the night before! How our day starts can totally set us up for an amazing experience full of excitement and new things to experience, or, one of scarcity, anxiety and lacking the ease and flow that we as human beings need to be our creative best.

Things like how to shed things that can interrupt our very intentional start, changing our currency, and what the hell is an Evidence Success Log? Listen in and solve these mysteries of a good start to what’s going to be a great day!

Ep 004: If you don’t ask for it…

March 20, 2018 |

If you want something from someone else, or more importantly, from yourself, then you have to actually ask for it. Otherwise you can’t move forward.

What would it be like for you to ask someone significant in your life exactly what you want from them? Spouse, partner, parent, child, client, prospect, friend, neighbor. Ask them! And when you ask them, is it to persuade them, or to serve them? Come and listen to the different perspectives on this simple and brilliant axiom inspired from the mouth of a five year old.

In the end, it’s about giving yourself permission to say no to something and yes to yourself instead.
