In this episode, I speak with Michelle Glogovac, host of 'My Simplified Life,' and we take a deep dive into her captivating journey from the aviation industry to the world of podcasting. Michelle shares her unique experiences, from being a law student to becoming a jet fuel expert, and how a part-time job in college evolved into a 20-year career alongside the private jets of celebrities. Her story isn't just about career transformation; it's about the unexpected twists life can throw at us and the resilience it takes to continue to grow. She brings a down-to-earth perspective on the power of storytelling, the value of genuine connections, and the courage it takes to plot a new course when the familiar path disappears beneath your feet.

Listening to Michelle, you can't help but feel inspired by her approach to embracing change and using her skills to amplify the narratives of others through podcasting. Her tales of celebrity encounters, including Michael Jackson, and the shift from negotiating jet fuel contracts to producing podcasts are not only entertaining but also full of insights about personal growth and adaptability. As she delves into the art of being an exceptional podcast guest and the importance of self-care, Michelle reminds us that slowing down is not a sign of weakness but a strategic move for longevity in any endeavor. If you're curious about the intricacies of podcasting, or if you're simply in need of a reminder that every challenge can lead to new opportunities, this is an episode you won't want to miss.
