Work and Play with Nancy Ray

Apr 6, 2021

Today we are celebrating two whole years of this podcast, Work and Play with Nancy Ray! I have a really fun, unique episode planed—it’s like a birthday party that I want to celebrate and encourage you with. But two quick things I wanted to mention before we dive in:

First, if you have never left a review for this podcast in Apple podcasts, would you consider doing that today? It takes less than two minutes. It is a great way for others to discover this podcast. Just pretend like your review is the birthday present that you're bringing to this podcast on her second birthday, and then pretend like I give you a big hug and say, "Thank you! This is exactly what we wanted!" because it is.

But truly, thank you, I'm so grateful that you spend your time listening to this podcast. I know life is short. The fact you take your precious time and listen to my podcast means so so much. I'm so grateful.  

The second thing I wanted to share is there is a giveaway happening for this week to celebrate the second birthday of this podcast! And it's full of some really great things. So here's what you need to know about the giveaway: is going to have all of the details.

It starts April 6th and ends April 13th at midnight, and it's really easy for you to enter!

But first of all, I want to tell you what's in the giveaway:

Now there are different winners, different tiers and categories of winners. And the first tier, the big winner is going to get most of the stuff. The second tier winner,  they're going to get:

So, bottom line is, make sure you register because there's going to be four winners, which is so great!

All right, let's get to today's episode!

Today, you are going to hear from a few friends of mine—dear friends, friends that I trust, friends that have so much wisdom and encouragement to offer you. A lot of these friends have been on the podcast before, I've interviewed several of them, so they might be familiar to you. All of them have contributed to this birthday party, to this encouragement. They're all going to speak life to you, give you some encouragement or advice. Maybe just a helpful  tip or words of wisdom, but no matter what, I promise is going to be something valuable.

You might be familiar with them, but even if you're not, I want you to know they are people that I deeply respect and admire, and if something they say resonates with you, I'd encourage you to find them online or on social media. I'm going to be sure to leave all of their links in the show notes today, because what they say today is just the tip of the iceberg of what they have to offer. I love them dearly. I'm so grateful for them.

So, Happy Birthday Work and Play Podcast! Thank you so much for coming to our little party today. I hope you find encouragement, I hope you win the giveaway and I hope you're blessed.
