60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey

–Celebrating a Podcast Milestone: 102,875 Plays!

Hello! To you each and every single podcast listener and “Thank You!” Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington, this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey and your host, Diane Wyzga.

Once upon a time, I launched a podcast inviting you to listen to the stories of women who were walking their lives while their lives walked them and the difference that made. And every day their stories traveled around the world. But one day I decided to add a daily episode because I heard that you wanted a small something to tuck in your pocket for your day. And because of that, I created 60 Seconds (and maybe a bit more): story-based episodes designed to delight, inform, provoke, inspire, comfort, and motivate. Until finally as I was creating and you were listening we arrived at this collaborative podcast milestone of 102,875 plays in just 2+ years!

Thank you, and each of you for walking along, sharing the sorcery of stories side by side! We have courses to create, client lists to expand, a newsletter to launch, more podcast and book ideas to produce, problems to solve, and challenges to overcome, as well as the upcoming very new and very improved Quarter Moon Story Arts website designed to help you get to the heart of your message so you say what you mean and mean what you say. Meanwhile, “Come for the stories – stay for the magic!”

CTA: Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, follow, and share a nice shout-out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, bring your friends and rellies, and join us! You will have wonderful company as we continue to walk our lives together.

Remember the first time you rode a bike and took your hands off the handlebars? And then because it felt fun and daring you did it again - and again - riding down a hill with the wind in your face, arms up over your head screaming, “Look, ma! No hands!” You showed up. You did it. The arc of my professional career stretches from serving as a US Navy officer and nurse, corporate businesswoman, lawyer, platform storyteller, and professor before shifting into a solopreneur as a litigation consultant, wordsmith-er/editor, noted podcaster, and story consultant who was lucky enough to scuba dive the Continental Shelf, become a pilot, hike the Rocky Mountains with Outward Bound, kayak off the coast of Mexico, parachute out of a perfectly good plane, walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, and so much more. Over my lifetime I've been letting go of the handlebars but - just as often - having my fingers pried off when I’ve been most afraid. At some of the darkest moments in my life where the true way was wholly lost to me, a person or opportunity beckoned and I said "Yes!" That’s the place where the story changed. This is my life purpose: Helping women identify, sort out and transform unclear messages into confident, connection-making stories, and those stories into powerful sequels. How? 30 years of story work in courtrooms, boardrooms, universities, retreat settings and more has taught me that story principles are key to conscious connection. Together we distill hazy ideas into easily understood metaphors and direct emotional language using words with power, passion, and precision so your message, your story rings true and achieves desired outcomes. My media company has three interlocking components: Quarter Moon Story Arts: "Shaping stories into sequels." Stories From Women Who Walk (podcast): "Like magic, the sorcery of stories is this: they help each of us to be seen and heard, to understand and be understood." My Life As Compost (blog): "What matters in our life is not what happens to us but how we respond, transform the difficulty into advantage, and tell *that* story."
