Handcrafting a World of Difference: the Podcast Version.

 

I was recently interviewed on Minding Your Business, a local podcast and radio show about the steps and stories of entrepreneurs building New Mexico’s businesses. The hosts of the show, Margarita Guarin and Neema Pickett from WESST (an Albuquerque-based entrepreneurial support organization), interview the owners of our state’s diverse businesses so that listeners can be inspired, discover new things, and envision business through a new lens. 

My daughter listened to my episode, entitled “Handcrafting a world of difference,” and reported that she learned things she didn’t know before. Since I’ve been regaling her with my HoonArts stories for almost 8 years, that tells me that Margarita and Neema managed to ask me questions that provided a new perspective on my entrepreneurial journey. I invite you to listen to our conversation and let me know if you learned something you didn’t know before.

 

 

I loved chatting with Margarita and Neema. I think you’ll enjoy listening to other stories about New Mexico businesses on the Minding Your Business podcast, so I encourage you to check it out on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

But my recent archeology adventures in Tajikistan did give me a new appreciation for the melding of history and culture in archeology. I also freely admit that the enthusiasm of the two archeologists in our 3 ‘Stans Tour group was contagious. Our first archeological site in Tajikistan was . . .

Since this is Thanksgiving week in the US, I've been taking stock of the many things for which I'm grateful. (I keep a daily gratitude journal where I record five things I'm thankful for, which must be different from the five things noted the day before. This practice, recommended by my fantastic business coach Tania Vasallo, has helped me get through the craziness of the last few years.) My trip to the 'Stans in September and October ranks very high on the top 25 list of gratitude-inducing e...

I love food, but I’m not a true “foodie.” I rarely take photos of food for social media (though my daughter and I do exchange text photos of extra-indulgent desserts). I don’t collect recipes because I rarely cook these days. But food is such an integral part of any travel experience that I thought you would enjoy this “food tour” of Central Asia—incomplete as it may be. The photos included in this blog are . . .
