Podcasting is a Passion Project
As a former NFL wife, Juliet Hahn became part of a small group of people. The sisterhood she found gave her an inside tract to the wonderful stories the women of the NFL had to offer. That storytelling element was the jumping off point for Hahn’s career post-NFL.
“I started podcasting as a passion project,” says Juliet Hahn of her beginnings on the Digital Hospitality podcast hosted by Shawn P. Walchef of Cali BBQ Media.
She knew she wanted to do something to contribute to the home, and has never been one to sit around and watch things happen. She began to fill her time with volunteering in the schools her growing children attended. Ever the competitor, that was a short lived endeavor, and Hahn went into health and fitness coaching to capitalize on her background as a two-sport collegiate athlete. Though she loved it, something was missing.
Juliet Hahn started down that path by recording what she describes as “personal journal stories”. These are stories that she shared were based on the good, bad, and ugly of her everyday life. Documenting life as is set the fearless foundation that allowed her the space to walk in her purpose without the apprehension of other’s opinions.
The podcast was initially aptly titled, Next Stop Crazy Town, which was merely a peek into her life with three kids, two dogs, and a busy life. The passion and belief that Hahn embodies gave her the gumption to pivot through the natural evolution of a life’s journey to end up where she is now.
As the dynamic host of Your Next Stop and YNS Live, Hahn has accomplished quite a bit in a relatively short amount of time, including being named to the top 50 Moms in Podcasting list.. Her most proud deed, however, is amplifying the voice of those that are traveling their own journeys and loving what they do. Hahn also puts on the Your Next Stop Workshop and has published an ebook where she shares tips and strategies for living a passion filled life.
