Hi my name is Amanda Cunningham and you’re reading the notes to the very first Bare Minimum Babe™ podcast episode! We are the anti-hustle, chill TF movement. This is a new podcast/venture so I’m still figuring stuff out so excuse me please as we work out the kinks over at Bare Minimum Babe :)
The first ever podcast episode is about why I'm making this podcast and how I made the decision to make the podcast at all.
For some short context my name is Amanda Cunningham and I'm a full time singer-songwriter but before that I was a digital marketing manager for about 6 years (I still do marketing stuff on the side as a freelancer).
So first what is the Bare Minimum Babe podcast?
First off, I love self help stuff and consume as much as I can through podcasts, reading books, apps, and talking to friends and mentors on becoming a better version of yourself. I love to then share that stuff with others. SO instead of over sharing and over helping (forcing my thoughts on) my friends and family, I decided to talk to my microphone and you, to hopefully help you too.
This podcast will essentially be me condensing lots of my own learnings to share how I apply it to my life to hopefully help you shift your life as well.
This podcast will cover things like:
how working on only essential things and saying no to as much as possible is the best way forward to your goals
how doing less is more
how competition and comparison games are toxic bs
tips and tricks I use for organization
how having bipolar ii impacts and dictates how I often schedule my days
WHY are you making the Bare Minimum Babe podcast?
In this episode I talk about
Talk about original podcast idea
How I tried to combo the 2 ideas but iffy on that combo..
Being honest about why I wanted to do each podcast ideas and how one of them was kind of shallow...
how important friends are. Not just any friends but ones that push you to think critically and share your goals in some form
following your energy and not just forcing yourself to do stuff all the time
If it's not a "hell yes!" then it's probably a "hell no..."
Anyways I’ve always loved self helpy stuff and also therapists and just consume as much of that as possible.
I also was reading this book essentialism and that’s how I could do this podcast. I straddled making both but I kept finding myself working on this idea and being so excited about it and writing ideas, creating a logo, buying a domain just in case” and the story of Monday name, Friday grabbed insta at gym and Monday after woke up thinking I needed to buy the domain and all the possibilities.
Anyways when I started thinking about where my energy wanted to go it wanted to go here to this. And the other music one felt like a homework assignment I assigned myself or something and work.
