Kick Monday’s Ass: today’s the day!!! *squee* (March 8, 2021)

It’s time to kick Monday’s ass…

It’s finally here… the first official episode of the Permission to Kick Ass podcast!
I’m joined by my friend Rachel Mazza, to talk stepping up into new and challenging roles, figuring things out on the fly, and trusting yourself to become even better.

Here’s the thing about this episode…
And the reason I really, REALLY wanted to share this one first, is because it’s my “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” episode.
If you haven’t seen that movie (you should add that to your watch list ASAP), I’m saying that everything that could have gone wrong with this episode… DID.
We’re talking…
  • The A/C going out in Houston, TX in the summer, which led to…
  • Thunder and/or jets being loud AF through the open, swampy window
  • Cat yowling to be let into the office
  • Me completely losing my train of thought and announcing it
  • The electrician showing up and ringing the doorbell
  • My office door opening itself/poltergeists manifesting at a weird time
  • Me going on irrelevant tangents
  • My roommate interrupting to ask when I planned on shutting down the recording so the electrician could cut power
This happens to you right out of the gate when you’re doing something new and scary, and it’s totally understandable that you might want to quit… or declare yourself “not cut out for this”.
But I dare you to find evidence of any of the above in this episode. That’s right… Angie learned to edit. BOOYAH.
So even when you make mistakes or do it less than perfect… the point is to DO it. Don’t just dream about it.
And definitely don’t take mess-ups and mistakes as a sign you should stop.
Don’t forget to check out episode one of the brand new Permission to Kick Ass podcast!
Stay tuned… I’ll be sharing one new episode per day this week, Monday through Friday. We’ll resume your regular Kick Monday’s Ass broadcast next week!
Rock on,


If you’re an aspiring freelancer who’s working up the courage to leave the day job… good news! I’m sharing all the things I WISH I’d known before making the leap so that hopefully your journey goes a little more smoothly than mine.
