*Note: this post is a condensed version of the Coming Out Gold Podcast Episode 30 found here.

Welcome back to The RS Blog. We have been on a journey together since the first Tuesday in November 2021 when I launched my Coming Out Gold Podcast. I am so humbled by those of you who have been here from the beginning, joined anywhere along the journey, or are here for the first time. Coaching women has changed my life. My own redemption story continues to be knit more beautifully as I watch other women transform their lives, correct false narratives, and begin living their best life. I have seen firsthand how the tools I learned through my healing help others as they find their redemption.



A few weeks back, I was on a Zoom call with about 40 other women who had taken a course I had been through early last year. In the end, we each gave an update on where we were with our business and goals. When it was my turn, I heard myself say something I hadn’t consciously put together in my own mind. Yet when I heard it, I finally understood the journey I had walked and the woman I wanted to serve as a coach. These are the words I said: “I am a coach and podcaster who encourages, empowers, and equips women so they can learn who they were meant to be before the world told them they weren’t good enough.” Woosa, what a revelation.



From a business standpoint, I knew this revelation meant my current marketing collateral, website, etc. would need to change. I started helping women who owned or wanted to start a business. Ironically enough when I started my coaching business, I called myself an Identity and Purpose Coach but so many classmates were remarking on my strength in giving solid business advice I thought that was the low-hanging fruit I should reach for. I have worked with some women doing this, but truthfully, it never felt aligned with what was really in my heart.

I know that women who understand their true identity find freedom. They can choose the passions they want to pursue, and in chasing that passion, they often stumble into their purpose. This changes the world
for all of us. THAT is what I want to do.


In my final podcast episode of Season One, I wanted to share:

  • The top three episodes based on your feedback
  • The biggest lessons I’ve learned
  • What’s next
  • Some funny bloopers to make you smile

Let’s jump into each.



Some episodes had higher downloads but these three generated a lot of conversation which is something I value greatly:

Top three episodes based on comments from those who listened:

  1. EP 26: How Clearing clutter clears your mind
  2. EP 24: What I learned from facing my fears
  3. EP 7: How to keep your peace this holiday season


Biggest lessons learned:

  1.  My voice matters – For most of my life, I was silenced. Starting a podcast has helped me not only find it but learn to share it with the world in a way that is resonating with other women. This makes it all worth it!
  2.  Being yourself always pays off – There is no one like me. No one can BE me. There is no one like you or that can BE you. And that is so beautiful!
  3.  I love podcasting – for reals! I had no idea when I started this journey how deeply I would fall for it. I tell everyone I meet that they need to have their own. (And just to nerd out quickly on a stat nearly 60% of podcasts are listened to by women but only 17% of podcasts are hosted by women. We need more women in this arena!




Now that season one is in the history books, I want to do a quick chat about what is next. First, I am taking a short break to make some of those changes I spoke of earlier. I will be back with Season Two at the beginning of June and I can’t wait. I have so many fun ideas. In the meantime, be sure you are following me on social media. I will be chatting on some other podcasts coming up and will be sure to share them there.

Moving forward I am so clear on who you are and how I can serve you. I will do this by offering content that encourages, empowers, and equips you to live your best life. In the meantime, I would LOVE to work with you. I adore individual coaching but am working on some new workshop opportunities so we can work in group settings. Eventually, I hope to create a monthly membership where we get together regularly to do our work, dream some dreams, and support and encourage one another. It is going to be an amazing journey, and we are just getting started!



Now, in the final episode, I shared some soundbites of bloopers throughout the season. You can’t read the bloopers so you will need to head to your favorite streaming platform and give it a listen here. I like a laugh more than the average girl, so this bit is of the behind-the-scenes of what happens when I sit down before my mic, Selah. It is certainly never a dull moment!

Again, please know how much I appreciate you for being here. Remember, you are amazing and deserve to see all your dreams come true. I look forward to what is ahead for us. We are going to do amazing things together, Lovie. This world better get ready because we are about to change it for the better!  


Until next time, remember, I am in it WITH you, always,
Coach Tammy
