[00:01:31] Paul Henczel: You knew Jen before, I believe through Clubhouse. We met at Clubhouse and, but we met in person at Pod Fest last year in Orlando, and it was a blast.
[00:01:45] Paul Henczel: You interviewed us with Fran on the Jed Bird Pod podcast, which was a load of funds, so yeah, it was just,
[00:01:53] Juliet Hahn: And the thing that was really funny is when Fran said, oh wait, cuz I kept giving him people, I was like, wait, I kind of have a connection here. We can [00:02:00] interview this cuz we knew we were gonna do a collaboration at Pod Fest, Fran and myself.
[00:02:04] Juliet Hahn: And he said, wait, I met this really cool couple, Jennifer and Paul Henczel. And I said, wait. I don’t know why I know that name, but I, I believe, I know Jennifer. I have to look. And I looked her up and I was like, oh my God, this is crazy. We actually know each other from Clubhouse. She’s really good. And then he told me the story of how you guys met and we, you know, and then we all, you know, all of us really hit it off.
[00:02:24] Juliet Hahn: So that was fun to be able to, you know, talk to you guys there alive. Yeah.
[00:02:28] Jennifer Henczel: That’s so amazing. So what’s really neat, I don’t know if we told you, I don’t think we told you when we were at Pod Fest, this story, but we were actually married in a football stadium. Uh, in the Raiders, Oakland Alameda Coliseum.
[00:02:40] Jennifer Henczel: Wow. Cause Paul’s a big football fan, and so we really connect with you on that. We were kind of excited to ask you some questions about your NFL situation. So tell us all about that. Tell us what is that all about? What do you do
[00:02:53] Juliet Hahn: for. Right. So, you know, it’s actually funny when I started my podcast in 2019, your next stop, I was [00:03:00] interviewing people, I still am, but that have followed a passion years and years and years before when I was 16, I actually babysat the shortages.
[00:03:08] Juliet Hahn: Michael and Cynthia shortage their kids, cuz Michael played for the Eagles. He was, uh, with, with the Eagles. I was like 16, 17. My mom’s a kindergarten teacher in town. It’s a small town right outside of Philadelphia. And so my sisters and myself, a bunch of friends, we were all like the babysitters, you know?
[00:03:24] Juliet Hahn: It was like, okay, who, who, who can do this house? Who can do this house? And Cynthia and I just really, we, we had this great bond. I also sat for her sister, and at the time I was watching Cynthia really create something behind the scenes as like the 16. She was like, you know, Going in the dark room, coming out with these amazing pictures, giving them to Michael, saying, Hey, just, you know, bring them, you know, to practice training camp, what have you.
[00:03:45] Juliet Hahn: So fast forward, we always stayed in touch. You know, my mom stayed in touch with the families and I stayed in touch social media when I started the podcast. , she was one of the first people that came to mind. Cause I just remember having this really amazing feeling of loving what she was doing. She had a really loving [00:04:00] family.
[00:04:00] Juliet Hahn: She was really creative, really just, uh, just awesome energy. The kids were great. You know, Michael would be in and out. They always had friends and it just was like a great atmosphere. So I was excited to interview her. And what I didn’t know is at the time that she was doing this dark room stuff, she had really, they had moved, so she gave up a entrepreneur job that she had.
[00:04:21] Juliet Hahn: She was a photographer, so she created this whole business in Arizona where Michael played for the Cardinals and she had to move and uproot and then. What was she gonna do? So I was watching her, which I did not know, create this business from her mind, bring it. When the, she would bring these pictures, Michael would bring them.
[00:04:40] Juliet Hahn: One of the, someone in the organization of Philadelphia said, you know what, Cynthia can, can we hire you? I would love for you to just, so this is where then I came in as I was babysitting. So, That’s how it really got started. When I had her on the podcast, I said to her, she started telling me about a couple events that they do before the Super Bowl.
[00:04:57] Juliet Hahn: One of them is she has now [00:05:00] started this organization called N F L Thread, and it’s like the LinkedIn for women of the N F L. So to keep everyone together. If you’re in the league, out of the league, it’s to teach you all the different things that happen in the league. A lot of people don’t realize the n F.
[00:05:13] Juliet Hahn: Has so many great resources for players and families. We just hear about the negative stuff, right? I mean, not all negative stuff, but we don’t realize all, I mean, they have so much stuff and so much resources for these guys and their, their spouses. So Cynthia wanted to create that. She went to the N F L.
[00:05:33] Juliet Hahn: Troy Vincent at the time and was like, you know, we need something, resources that the women know about. You can’t give it to the guys. The guys are not reading it. They’re, you know, practicing. They’re staying healthy, they’re doing this. You gotta get it in the women’s hands, the moms, the spouses, the grandmoms, whoever it is.
[00:05:47] Juliet Hahn: So he said, well, can you do something? So she started thread and so, When we were talking and she started talking about that, I was like, wait, so you have, you do like a luncheon on the Thursday before the Super Bowl? She said, yes, we’ve been doing it, I’ve been doing it for [00:06:00] seven years. And then on Friday before the Super Bowl, there’s this huge fashion show, this huge event off the Wives Field Association, uh, wives association runs it and they’ve been doing it.
[00:06:12] Juliet Hahn: This year was the 22nd year, and they raised money for a local charity through this. So there was 400 people. They bought tickets and all those proceeds go to a local charity. And I said to her, well, what do you mean? Why don’t we know about this 22 years? You raised millions of dollars. Like this is insane to me.
[00:06:31] Juliet Hahn: So that’s when we got together. I fireside had just, I was an early creator on Fireside, which is Mark Cuban and Fallen Amines app. I had. Started doing my live show on there. And so I started getting, you know, some traction. I got a good following. So I said to her, why don’t we just do it there? We can stream live, we can do this at the events.
[00:06:48] Juliet Hahn: We can also have players and spouses and, and you know, whoever it’s on, talk about their story. So we have two different shows, y n s like your next stop with N F L Thread [00:07:00] and then Ys. With N F L thread pivot, and that’s really about the, when the families leave the league, the husbands, the wives, what it, what it looks like.
[00:07:08] Juliet Hahn: So then we just started doing these live events and I just got back this past weekend. I mean, it is amazing. I interview people on the red carpet. I meet all these wonderful people. I, we have the live podcast set up. People are excited to come and talk about what they do, their stories, because they’re not always asked, especially the spouses.
[00:07:26] Juliet Hahn: They’re not really. , what do you do? You know, when I first got there last year, I remember I asked someone and her husband was pretty big in the league, and I said, you know, can you tell me about yourself? And I handed her the micro, you know, I put the microphone there and she said, I am, you know, the wife of blah, blah, blah.
[00:07:42] Juliet Hahn: And I said, oh, that’s great, but what do you do? And she stumbled. She said, wait, you wanna know about me? And I said, I do. And she said, oh my gosh, I’m, I’m sorry. I’m so thrown. I’ve never been asked. And I said, well, that’s a shame. Please tell us she owned her own company. [00:08:00] Like a huge company that she started when her husband was in the league.
[00:08:04] Juliet Hahn: He had just left the league, but she was like, I knew it wasn’t gonna be forever. So then it’s my turn to take the reins. So it’s really cool. But we also kind of dive in what it looks like when someone leaves the league, if they’re injured, if they’re pushed out, if it was their choice, what happens mentally mental health, what it looks like.
[00:08:22] Juliet Hahn: So many different things and they really get on the show and talk about it. And even on the red carpet, some of the guys, you know, thanking us for doing what we’re doing, you know, thank you for talking about the behind the scenes. Thank you for talking about the stories, because just like you guys know, stories connect us and when you hear someone’s story, you really feel.
[00:08:40] Juliet Hahn: Either you like them a little bit more, maybe they’re not your cup of tea, but you feel more connected to them either way. So that’s really how it all came about. That’s, that’s
[00:08:48] Paul Henczel: really cool. I, I love that you do that, like for spouses and wives is, I just imagine that cannot be
[00:08:55] Juliet Hahn: easy. No, I mean, it’s, it’s, it’s just, they, they talk about, and, and time and time again, [00:09:00] the husband, you know, the, the ex-player comes on and when they’re talking to us, they’re like, I didn’t know I was depressed, but my wife was like, I think you’re depressed.
[00:09:09] Juliet Hahn: We need to do something about it. Some of them had to kind of trick their husbands into start getting up and doing stuff because if you think about what a professional athlete does, whether it’s the N F L or any, like when you are at that level, the amount of discipline you have, you wake up, you work out you, I mean, there’s so much things and that all of a sudden when that’s all taken away, anyone with even a straight mind, I mean anyone that doesn’t even suffer from depression or have mental health issues is gonna struggle.
[00:09:37] Juliet Hahn: And the more it’s talked about, the more that the player that is starting to go through it can say, oh my gosh, I didn’t know X, Y, and Z went through that too. I feel like I, I can talk about it. I can trust my wife, I can trust my spouse to really walk me through and help me through this journey because it’s not easy and especially if you’re doing something that you love so much, but your [00:10:00] body is just like, it’s not, it’s not time.
[00:10:03] Juliet Hahn: How does that feel? How does that look? So we kind of shed light on all of that, which I think is really, really important.
[00:10:08] Paul Henczel: Cool. Was it fun being in Phoenix? It’s so fun. Yeah. Is the atmosphere
[00:10:13] Juliet Hahn: cool? It’s so cool. And I have to say, I probably still am not sleeping completely because the adrenaline’s still like going through my veins.
[00:10:20] Juliet Hahn: I mean, I interviewed over 40 people in two days, you know? And. Two hours, three hours at a time. I mean, it was just boom, boom, boom. It’s where it really is, where I am meant to be. It’s really cool to see, I don’t know, half of the people, I don’t know half of their names. I figure it out. I ask questions because I’m curious about it.
[00:10:38] Juliet Hahn: I’m curious, you know, why they’re there, what these events mean to them. Um, there’s so much before the super. That people don’t realize there’s so many networking events, so many parties. And so it’s just really fun to see that world. And I have to say, they really have accepted me. You know, they, they think, they’re like, oh, who now?
[00:10:57] Juliet Hahn: Who’s your husband? I’m like, no, no, no. He’s not in the league. And [00:11:00] they’re like, oh, that’s great, but you’ve been with us. Thank you for being the person that’s helping share our stories. Thank you for caring enough about what we go through and shedding light on it. And so it just really, it’s what drives me and it inspires.
[00:11:12] Jennifer Henczel: Okay, so Paul said, how was it in Phoenix, but just so our listeners know, you were involved in some kind of Pre Super Bowl
[00:11:18] Juliet Hahn: event, right? Yes. So there was two events, right? Thursday there was a luncheon, it’s called the y n S live with n f L Thread Luncheon, and there’s about 80, uh, people, players and spouses.
[00:11:30] Juliet Hahn: It’s really just, um, For people to get together, network. We do swag bags, we have sponsorship opportunities. I mean, so many different ways to get involved. We have podcast sponsors, so the whole podcast backdrop has our sponsors on it. I talk about them the whole time. Um, and each person comes up and it’s really, they don’t have to, but.
[00:11:48] Juliet Hahn: So many people get excited to jump on the podcast to share their story. I mean, really most people like to talk about themselves in some aspect. You know, once you get people talking, it’s like, oh wait, I’d love to [00:12:00] talk about this. I’d love to share this. And then on Friday is the fashion show where they had 60 models.
[00:12:06] Juliet Hahn: I mean, pl current players, wives. You know, um, ex-player wives, there’s so many different people. I mean, they had some current players that were there. T Higgins, Patrick Salton, I mean some big, big players. Um, Steve Young was there. Donovan McNabb, his wife, uh, Roxy is the one, their, their charity, which was called the Karas Foundation, which gives underprivileged kids.
[00:12:27] Juliet Hahn: The ability to play organized sports at a higher level. So they, they do the funds for that. So that’s where all the money that, that from the fashion show went. So it’s really, I mean, just the atmosphere and the love and the energy. It is a really loving, exciting community and, um, People are just happy to see each other.
[00:12:45] Juliet Hahn: And a lot of times these women and and ex-players, they go because it’s like they’re once a year where they all get together. And so it’s just, it’s just really this great Mark McMillan who’s been on the podcast, um, who also was an ex Eagle but [00:13:00] also played for Kansas City. So that was really fun to kind of talk to him about it.
[00:13:03] Juliet Hahn: He’s an Emmy winner, uh, because he had a show called Big Man Little Man, cuz he’s short, he’s five seven, but he. Incredible Philadelphia player. I remember him cuz it was when I was, you know, growing up. And he now is on next, uh, level chef with Gordon Ramsey. So that just came out. So that was really fun for him to be able to talk about it.
[00:13:22] Juliet Hahn: That’s his next stop, right? It’s his next. Passion in life. He has all these grilling and cooking sauces. So it’s really fun to see these, you know, that this community, particularly because I have ties in it, because, you know, of, of babysitting, living right outside of Philadelphia. It’s just, it’s a special thing.
[00:13:39] Juliet Hahn: I love sports, period. I played two sports in college, so it’s really in my blood. It’s the competition. I, I, I kind of, I, I thrive in that. So being on my feet and, you know, basically having to talk and not have. Scripted out cuz it’s like you don’t know who you’re gonna meet, you don’t know what questions they’re gonna be asked.
[00:13:58] Juliet Hahn: I really, really thrive [00:14:00] in that.
[00:14:00] Paul Henczel: Well, you, you’re very good at what you do. You’re incredibly easy to talk to. You’re great at interviewing, like, you know, I appreciate it. Yeah. So now one thing we have in common, like we both, you know, talk a lot about the importance of storytelling and, and that kind of thing.
[00:14:18] Paul Henczel: So like, what led. Um, or inspired you to like, talk about that and like get into that
[00:14:28] Juliet Hahn: aspect? Well, I have to say it really stems, and this is what I talk to my clients about. Since I’m a storytelling consultant, I really help people be able to articulate and formulate parts of the story that are gonna connect deeper with audiences.
[00:14:41] Juliet Hahn: A lot of times we have things that happen to our us in our past and we don’t think that they’re significant cuz it’s like it happened to you. So who’s, who really cares about that? But that’s not true because those are the parts that really connect. So I’m dyslexic. So school was really tough for me. I grew up in a town that everyone, everyone was pr like [00:15:00] in my eyes.
[00:15:00] Juliet Hahn: Everyone was good at school, they were good at sports. So I was always kind of having to really work extra hard and realize that I didn’t learn the same as my my friends. And. I had a lot of friends cuz I played sports, but I also had a lot of friends cuz I just, I, I loved people. I love people, I love asking questions.
[00:15:15] Juliet Hahn: I love being silly, you know, I love that aspect, especially growing up. And so I realized really early on that when I communicated, when I spoke, teachers listened to me a little different when I had to do written. Or had to hand in work or had to take tests. I was told, you’re not trying hard enough. Why aren’t you focused?
[00:15:36] Juliet Hahn: What’s wrong with you? What are you doing? But then I would change around and talk to them, and then they would say, okay, well this is what I want on your papers. Now, we didn’t know back then I was dyslexic, but like it runs deep in my, my family. So my dad’s dyslexic, my sister’s dyslexic. I’m sure there was a grandparent that it came from.
[00:15:53] Juliet Hahn: My oldest son is dyslexic. It really is a superpower. But when you’re in traditional. [00:16:00] It’s hard and it, it basically sucks. I mean, it really does. Cuz you learn completely different. You don’t understand what the teacher’s saying and it’s like, why is everyone else understanding? So I went through school with my friends, I mean, going to top colleges and me having to bust my butt to get, you know, even just like a, you know, an average grade.
[00:16:18] Juliet Hahn: There was subjects that I was better in, funny enough, English and history. I was better in. Maths and science. That’s where really my dyslexia came in. So it was more of a processing thing. So I, again, I learned I can connect with people by talking and telling my story and so early on it was just something I harnessed.
[00:16:39] Juliet Hahn: I went to college. I actually did not go to study communications because I really didn’t like school, but I played two sports, as I mentioned. And so I went into corporate fitness cuz I thought fitness. I’m great at corporations. I love people. I love connecting. I love networking. This is what I’m meant to do.
[00:16:56] Juliet Hahn: And I had to take anatomy and physiology [00:17:00] very quickly. I was like, oh, I don’t know if I wanna do this. Stumbled upon communications, radio, television, and film. And fell in love. But with the communications part, I really didn’t see myself as creative. I didn’t see myself behind the scenes making things again, it kind of stems back from my dyslexia.
[00:17:20] Juliet Hahn: When I was in third grade, the whole class went to gifted and talented, and myself and another boy went to special reading. We had to read the Blue Dolphin, and I was told like by my friends that came over like, where were you? Where were you? I was like, I had to go read the Blue Dolphin. Oh, that stinks.
[00:17:34] Juliet Hahn: Why we got to create these things. We made mazes and we’re gonna go compete nationally, and we got to, you know, um, build these different javelins and, and I took it as creativity. So I gave myself that little narrative that I wasn’t creative. So that took me through my life. Even though I had so many other talents and I had so many strengths, I didn’t really let it get me down.
[00:17:55] Juliet Hahn: But I definitely, there was times in my life where I was like, okay, I’m not gonna go that route [00:18:00] because that’s not my strengths. So in college, What is one of those things. But then I did find that communications, I found advertising sales and I fell in love with, uh, I, I knew I wanted to move to New York City.
[00:18:12] Juliet Hahn: I knew I wanted that kind of life. So that’s the route I went. And now, funny enough, you know, I was an advertising sales for many years. Met my husband in New York, had kids, decided I wanted to stay home. Really even sharpened. Storytelling skills because I would tell the kids so many stories. I would, I mean, literally make up stories and had we had these villages and towns and I, and I can’t believe I never wrote it down cuz it really probably would be like a movie or a tv, you know, I mean a, a kid’s book.
[00:18:40] Juliet Hahn: Um, but it was one of those things I knew, you know, meeting people, I always would network with them. I would always, oh, you need to meet this person. You need to do this. So it was always something that I was doing kind of behind the scenes. And then in 2019 is really when. I was kind of in a creative rut, which now I realized, I was like, what do I wanna do?
[00:18:59] Juliet Hahn: The kids are getting [00:19:00] older. I wanna start giving back to the family. I really wanna do something. And that’s when I started the podcast. And then the storytelling consultant see, came out of it because when I would have guests on, I tend to ask curious questions because I’m curious and it’s not scripted questions, and it’s because I really read people really well.
[00:19:18] Juliet Hahn: I’m very intuitive, and so they would then start talking and it would just become this beautiful conversation. They would get off the podcast and say, wait, I’ve never told my story that way. How did you do that? Can you help me? And then that’s how my business really kind of evolved. Oh,
[00:19:32] Jennifer Henczel: that’s so amazing.
[00:19:33] Jennifer Henczel: You must have heard so many amazing stories over the years too. Oh, amazing. The players and the wives and, and then. You know, you did your storytelling with your kids, so do you have any tips for other people for creating their story? Because everybody has a story. We find that some people think at first, oh, I don’t know if I have a story or can I tell a story, but I know that, you know, everybody has a story and it’s just a matter of pulling that [00:20:00] story outta the person.
[00:20:00] Jennifer Henczel: So do you have any tips?
[00:20:02] Juliet Hahn: I do, because that’s the thing. Not only do I do the NFL segments, cause I have four different podcast. Shows I do like what my first podcast when I first started is your next Stop, and I really talk to people that have followed a passion and turned into a business. So there’s a lot of entrepreneurs, but there’s also a lot of people that are in the business world that knew that that’s what they wanted to do.
[00:20:24] Juliet Hahn: And one of the, the tips when I’m talking to clients is if you’re interested in something, even if you think it’s not sign, But you realize you can talk forever. You don’t pause. You just really, it flows. It flows out of you. That is something that needs to be added to your story, whether you think it’s significant or not, the energy you’re bringing forth, the, the way you’re speaking, the way you get excited.
[00:20:50] Juliet Hahn: It means that other people are gonna connect with that piece a little bit more. And whether you’re writing a book, selling a story on a media circuit, keynote speaking, those are the things that need to be [00:21:00] added. Even if it’s a sentence, it’s an important part of your story. The other part that I tell my clients is you really need to think back.
[00:21:08] Juliet Hahn: Into your childhood, like I did when I was in third and fourth grade. Even though that wasn’t a great feeling, you know, it still was like, Ugh, I, I feel bad for that little kid in fourth and third grade that all her friends went elsewhere and I had to go with the troublemaker to go special reading. It was like, okay, this stinks.
[00:21:25] Juliet Hahn: However, it did really put a path in front. And it made me resilient. And there’s things that I learned because of the way I struggled in school. And so sharing that part of my story is important. And I’ll give you an example. Someone said to me one time, you know, I said to them, I played two sports. I’m dyslexic, but I went to college cuz of, of my two sports.
[00:21:49] Juliet Hahn: And they said, From one sentence I learned, okay, you’re dyslexic, so that means you’re pretty resilient cuz you’ve failed so many times. You have a creative mind, [00:22:00] you actually can think outside the box. You’re curious. A lot of dyslexic people are curious. And with your athletics, not only are you hardworking, but you’re competitive and you, you know, wanna get things.
[00:22:12] Juliet Hahn: And that’s the other thing I tell my clients. Just from one sentence, people can learn something from you. So it’s really important to kind of harness those one to two sentence, I hate the word elevator pitch, but really kind of figuring out those little things. Third is you might have this, you know, this huge trauma.
[00:22:33] Juliet Hahn: In the beginning of your life, middle of your life. End of your life, and you think, okay, I don’t wanna tell at all because I sound like I’m this wreck, right? Because I have all these different traumas. But you can talk to those. Audiences whether, again, whatever aspect you’re doing, podcast circuit author, keynote speaker, entrepreneur, wherever it is, adding those little bits are gonna connect with different parts of your audience.
[00:22:59] Juliet Hahn: So if you have this [00:23:00] huge trauma, you know, your house burnt down, you lost everyone in your family, people are gonna be like, oh my gosh. Now not everyone’s gonna relate because that doesn’t happen to everyone. But they can feel a little bit. But if you add, you know, when I was a drug addict as a. My parents got divorced and then this trauma happened to me.
[00:23:19] Juliet Hahn: They’re gonna pull in different audiences to really connect your story even more. Oh,
[00:23:25] Jennifer Henczel: that’s so good. We find too that, um, and then I know you do this where you then will go, how did you get from that? To the next phase in your life. Right? Yeah. And that’s where the exciting from point A to point B mm-hmm.
[00:23:38] Jennifer Henczel: you know, and the transformation and the solution basically, that other people can learn from. And so, you know, what, what do you recommend for people to, to dive into that, you know, and to embrace that and not get stuck in their story?
[00:23:52] Juliet Hahn: Right, because a lot of times people will say, well, that the part that I got out of it, it really is not a big deal.
[00:23:57] Juliet Hahn: Like who can learn it? I just, I just did it. Or, [00:24:00] you know, I had help here. But that part of your story, again, is going to connect, but it also connects the dots for people. So that’s something that I help them do. I really help them take those dots and string them along so it. You know so that story kind of flows because sometimes people will go all around.
[00:24:17] Juliet Hahn: Even though in this conversation, when people listen, they might chuckle at that. Cuz I have, I’ve gone from my beginning to my middle to end, but I tie it all together and that’s just something I’ve learned from practice. It’s the way my brain works. I actually have a direction thinker brain. . So I’m able to do that pretty well.
[00:24:35] Juliet Hahn: Some people are left to right thinkers, some people are, you know, think up and down. So it is kind of important to think about how you express yourself the best and do that instead of trying to change your brain. So if someone said to me, I need you to stay in chronical order, I could do that, but it might not be as easy.
[00:24:55] Juliet Hahn: That’s great.
[00:24:56] Jennifer Henczel: That’s wonderful. Yeah. Just being you and being authentic [00:25:00] and really letting that, that uniqueness shine through in your story. That’s amazing. And you’re so good at it, and you’re so good online and, and you’re so encouraging and uplifting and very positive. And so I really hope people can connect with you.
[00:25:14] Jennifer Henczel: Thanks. We’re gonna, we’re gonna find out more about how people can really, uh, you know, work with you and connect with you. But first, Paul’s gonna take you through our speed.
[00:25:24] Juliet Hahn: Okay. Yeah. Just
[00:25:25] Paul Henczel: three real quick questions. So what do you do for fun?
[00:25:28] Juliet Hahn: So, I mean, I love hanging with my family. I love going on, you know, a boat in the summer.
[00:25:33] Juliet Hahn: I love wa and I know it’s, people are gonna be like, that’s fun. But I love walking my dogs. I really do. But being with my family is, is the main thing. Dinner just sitting around, debating, talking, watching movies, going on, trips, traveling.
[00:25:47] Paul Henczel: Love it. Awesome. Uh, do you have a
[00:25:50] Juliet Hahn: favorite. Do I have a favorite quote?
[00:25:53] Juliet Hahn: There’s so many different quotes that I, that, that resonate with me, but there is one, and I’m gonna [00:26:00] butcher it cause I don’t have it written in front of me. But there is one that says something about Brave Girl and it talks about, it doesn’t matter how crazy your life is. Because craziness is made for the brave, not for the week.
[00:26:14] Juliet Hahn: And I love that because when life is like, you know, doing these events and crazy, to me is very endearing. I, uh, crazy means like fun and energy, not cr like lunatic crazy. Um, and so that’s why that kind of resonates to me. But when you’re doing all these things, It really is important not to dwell on the little details.
[00:26:31] Juliet Hahn: You have to kind of let life go. You have to see where it is. You have to dream, dream big, and, and then go after those dreams instead of just being like, oh, well why me? Who can do this? Someone might say, that isn’t my position. Like, I would never have the balls to go in the N f L circles and ask these questions to people because how can you relate?
[00:26:49] Juliet Hahn: But as a mom, as a wife, I’m curious about how they level it up and do all the things they’ve done. I’ve moved, I’ve done these things. So it’s really about being [00:27:00] confident in who you are and confident in who your abilities are. So that’s why I love that quote. That’s great. But it’s, I, I have, it’s not cr not completely cracked
[00:27:08] Paul Henczel: Yeah. Um, who’s inspired you the.
[00:27:14] Juliet Hahn: Who has inspired me the most? That’s a good question and I’m gonna pause for a second cuz I gotta think about that. Um, I don’t know that, and this is funny cuz I don’t know that I have like an individual completely. Like I know my mom is, is a hu really, really strong woman and has been through stuff and has really come out on the other side and has always supported us.
[00:27:39] Juliet Hahn: My kids inspire me every day seeing them navigate stuff. My husband, the way he handles the family and handles all of us in our crazy, our crazy town, those are people that definitely inspire me, um, on a day-to-day basis. But I do think that, People that stand up and talk their truth, even when [00:28:00] the world is going crazy, and I don’t have like a, a specific name, but people like that really inspire me.
[00:28:06] Juliet Hahn: I really think that it’s important not to try to be someone else. And if you have something that you’re really passionate about and you really believe in, not to sit back because you’re like, it doesn’t matter, but to fight. Well,
[00:28:19] Jennifer Henczel: that’s amazing because that’s exactly what you do. And we’ll share this also in the women and podcasting community.
[00:28:25] Jennifer Henczel: So we’re gonna be sharing this on inspiring show where you can find all the links. And so the podcasts you do for the N F L, are
[00:28:32] Juliet Hahn: those public, so they are. So I do, um, They, you can find them on Fireside, you can find them on YouTube, um, everywhere. It’s Juliet, j u l i e t, Hahn, h a h n. But also all my socials are I am Juliet Hahn.
[00:28:47] Juliet Hahn: Funny story. There’s a professor at The Citadel that has my exact name. Um, she’s a Korean woman. So when people look, they’re like, wait, that’s not her . That is not me. So I, I am Juliet Hahn. But so those [00:29:00] go out on my podcast player, even though we keep them live, we really keep them raw and don’t do a lot of editing cuz they come from Fireside, but they’re streamed live.
[00:29:08] Juliet Hahn: Um, YouTube, Twitch, and um, LinkedIn the same time that we do them. So like you can catch the whole raw kind of fun where I’m like, you know, saying to to my producer are, are my lips chapped? You know, and I’m like, wait, am I muted? You know, those kind of fun things cuz it is really? Or like I have to pee cons, you know?
[00:29:26] Juliet Hahn: Oh. Am I muted? Those kind of funny things. And then we do cut them up and put them as podcast episodes and they go out on, on my RSS feed. So you can find them on my website, which is I am juliet hahn.com, or you can find them at your next stop on all podcast players. Oh wow. That’s
[00:29:43] Jennifer Henczel: amazing. And we’ll put all those links in the show notes at Inspiring
[00:29:47] Juliet Hahn: Show.
[00:29:48] Juliet Hahn: Wonderful. This has been awesome. I love talking with you guys. Oh, we love talking with
[00:29:53] Jennifer Henczel: you too. Where can people find more information about you specifically then in working with you?
[00:29:57] Juliet Hahn: So they can go to, again, my website, [00:30:00] which is I am juliet hahn.com. There’s a work with me tab. I do corporate events, I do public speaking, and I also do the one-on-one, uh, storytelling consultant.
[00:30:09] Juliet Hahn: Um, see, and the way that works is I do packages. So I like really work with people. I help them also be able to get their story condensed. So sometimes you have, you know, an hour and a half story, but you’re going on a podcast for 30 minutes and you’re like, well, how do I do that? So I really work with people on practicing all different levels of how to share their story.
[00:30:28] Juliet Hahn: And also after we’ve worked, you know, we’ve had like a bunch of sessions, people are. I shouldn’t say are loud, but my clients can hire me for like a one time off. Like, Hey, I’m gonna be on this podcast, this is the audience. Can you help me pick out the parts? So like for instance, I, I’ll have a client that is really educational based, but their story is like a really intense story, but they’re talking to the intense story kind of people, and I’m like, you.
[00:30:54] Juliet Hahn: You touch on this educational base, but it’s really about your personal story or vice versa, like [00:31:00] you’re, you’re talking to the education crowd. You wanna be able to touch on your story even if those questions are not asked. Like, one of the things that I’m sure your listeners can hear, you guys ask me questions, but I was able to weave in parts of my story that are important, that I know are gonna connect deeper with people.
[00:31:16] Juliet Hahn: And not everyone knows how to. and, and not everyone knows how to do it well, because sometimes they might add it and it didn’t make sense and it’s like, oh, okay, well that didn’t make any sense, but I really teach them how to do that. So that is firstname.lastname@example.org. Well, you really
[00:31:32] Jennifer Henczel: walk your talk. You’re a master storyteller, so I hope people connect with you that way, and thanks for being here with us today
