Transcripts

Speaker:

Welcome to the Lift As You Climb podcast, where it's all about the

Speaker:

journey and the joy of discovering who you are now, deciding who you want

Speaker:

to become, and embracing your genuine identity, influence, and impact.

Speaker:

In each episode, we'll explore how life's experiences have prepared us for what

Speaker:

we choose to do next and how to create our Encore, write our own script, and

Speaker:

star in the next stage of our lives.

Speaker:

I'm your host, your Encore strategist, and transformation catalyst, Isabel Alexander.

Isabel:

Hello and goodbye.

Isabel:

Today, I am recording the last episode of the Lift As You Climb podcast.

Isabel:

This is not an end, but it is a beginning.

Isabel:

But let me explain more about that a little later.

Isabel:

First, let's talk a little bit about what we've experienced and what we've

Isabel:

shared together in the past three years.

Isabel:

105 episodes of this podcast have proceeded today.

Isabel:

It's been an incredible journey and an incredible season of my life as

Isabel:

we've shared times that affected all of us, changing what we believe about

Isabel:

ourselves and the world and learning to become more of the best of us.

Isabel:

And isn't that what Lift As You Climb is all about?

Isabel:

What it was always intended to be and what it will continue to be.

Isabel:

But this podcast is coming to an end.

Isabel:

And a brand new one is born out of those three years of living, becoming more

Isabel:

of myself and learning more about who I want to be, , what I want more of.

Isabel:

We've talked a lot about figuring ourselves out and really leaning into

Isabel:

the wisdom of who we are as women.

Isabel:

Decades and decades of transformation, reinvention backing up, going forward,

Isabel:

and with all of that, even though some of it was uncomfortable at times,

Isabel:

perhaps even painful for some of us, there was also a great deal of good that

Isabel:

happened for all of us in learning more about ourselves and how to build our

Isabel:

own success ladders and be confident in the choices that we're making because

Isabel:

we've come to know more about ourselves.

Isabel:

And of course, for me, it's not about just having my own success,

Isabel:

but collaboration, the power, in fact, I believe the responsibility

Isabel:

of giving a hand up to others.

Isabel:

Based on our own experience and our own wisdom, we empower others

Isabel:

to build their own success ladder.

Isabel:

Economic independence and empowerment for women, girls, families will

Isabel:

always be a part of who I am and what validates my existence

Isabel:

through this journey called life.

Isabel:

That's why I've shared with you my own personal story, , the anguish and the

Isabel:

joy of growing up into my 40s, 50s, 60s, and now, approaching my 70th

Isabel:

birthday, figuring out as I traveled through this womanhood wonderland,

Isabel:

really what is it all about, Alfie?

Isabel:

What's important to me?

Isabel:

What's no longer important?

Isabel:

Evolution is a really necessary healthy part of our journey, because if we stop

Isabel:

trying to figure out who we are, if we figure that we have expired, and there

Isabel:

is an episode about what's your expiry date, then nothing really matters.

Isabel:

Not only have I been able to share my own experiences with you, the good, the bad,

Isabel:

the ugly, and the, oh, my goddess, did not expect that to happen to me, but I've

Isabel:

also been able to bring to you and share the wisdom, the laughter, the tears, the

Isabel:

education from some incredible guests that helped us look at how Age is just a number

Isabel:

that is really a stereotype, and really, what the hell, we get to choose how much

Isabel:

more life we're going to have in our time, and really what those numbers mean to us.

Isabel:

I've celebrated birthdays with you, and I will continue for a long time,

Isabel:

I've celebrated women that shattered barriers, were the original

Isabel:

gangsters, who were Forbes authors, shared the stage with Oprah.

Isabel:

I've talked about women business coaches and authors, speakers, and really badass

Isabel:

entrepreneurs, all of whom share in common the fact that they were on this

Isabel:

journey of figuring out who they were in their encore periods of life -not

Isabel:

singular, but multiple encores, which is what we can only hope to aspire.

Isabel:

And they were willing to share their own experiences generously,

Isabel:

authentically with you and me.

Isabel:

And we talked about, how women impact the economy and how

Isabel:

we do things so differently.

Isabel:

Born out of this experience of learning to podcast and learning to be a YouTuber

Isabel:

and being able to share with you my life's purpose, which is defined by the

Isabel:

title of this podcast, Lift As You Climb, I've had this opportunity to grow along

Isabel:

with you and really challenge myself to sit in this uncomfortable place

Isabel:

in front of you and reveal the truth.

Isabel:

I don't have all the answers, but I'm not going to stop investigating.

Isabel:

On this journey of Lift As You Climb, what I've learned is there are so

Isabel:

many of you out there that get that.

Isabel:

That want more of that, that understanding that our life has purpose

Isabel:

and our life has meaning only if we are able to decide on what our legacy

Isabel:

is and to live it and direct it and influence it now while we are alive.

Isabel:

And during that, as we learn more and become more of ourselves and lift

Isabel:

ourselves, We are also able then to reach back to our sisters, other women,

Isabel:

other people, and by example, show them that it's really worth making the

Isabel:

effort to go through the metamorphosis, to make the difficult transformations

Isabel:

and transitions in life, always in search of, okay, Who am I now?

Isabel:

And who is this next best version of myself?

Isabel:

As a result, what I've decided is I really feel most impassioned, most empowered,

Isabel:

as someone who can lift myself and help others lift themselves with my focus

Isabel:

on women of a certain age, women like myself, in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and

Isabel:

beyond, who are the small and medium sized women business owners of the world, who

Isabel:

have an amazing impact on economies, not only their own, their families and their

Isabel:

employees and their contractors and their circles of influence in their community.

Isabel:

And those circles keep getting bigger and bigger because we are, we

Isabel:

ebb out into the universe with our influence as women entrepreneurs.

Isabel:

and that's why I recognize, I had a fabulous season of three years with

Isabel:

Lift As You Climb, being more general in terms of, let's talk about identity,

Isabel:

let's figure out the ways that we as women show up as the best version

Isabel:

of ourselves, and showcase other entrepreneurs, other women, other leaders,

Isabel:

that give us examples as trailblazers to model ourselves after, or just to

Isabel:

spark another idea, which is totally different of our own, but understand,

Isabel:

oh gosh, we all have so much in common.

Isabel:

Every single one of the people that I've interviewed on this show will share, they

Isabel:

suffer from identity crisis, imposter syndrome, pivoting decisions in their

Isabel:

life, relationships up and down overcoming the beliefs and Paradigms of the Past.

Isabel:

This is what's important for all of you to hear and know.

Isabel:

You're not alone.

Isabel:

We are all going on this human journey and growing on this human journey together.

Isabel:

And so today I'm growing again.

Isabel:

I am stretching a new set of butterfly wings.

Isabel:

I've come out of my cocoon of thinking for a while.

Isabel:

That's why there haven't been a lot of episodes lately, because

Isabel:

I've been thinking what do I think is important to me now?

Isabel:

And that is a new focus and a new show which is launching next week.

Isabel:

And so if you're here subscribed to my channel now, you're automatically going

Isabel:

to receive the announcement about the new show and about the new season, and why

Isabel:

it is so frigging exciting and wonderful that we are here as collaborative lifters

Isabel:

Isabel:

new podcast and a new YouTube channel that specifically is about what I

Isabel:

Isabel:

and that together collectively our wisdom will have significant impact

Isabel:
