Season 1 Summary of the Year 2021

Published on: 24th November, 2021

In our final episode of Season 1, we look back at the 22 guests we’ve interviewed in the last 12 months and take a moment to reflect on what we’ve learned from them. 

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our guests in 2021, who either originated from, or are now living in, countries as wide ranging as Canada, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Senegal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, UK, USA and Zimbabwe. We’ve covered almost all the continents!

Thanks too to you, our listeners, for supporting us during our first year of podcasting and for recommending some of the audacious people we’ve spoken to this year.

We’ll be taking a break in December and will be back in the New Year with Season 2 of the AudaciousNess podcast.

In the meantime, if you’d like to join us at our first AudaciousNess Book Club Meeting on 1 December, you can find out more information about that here: https://www.maribelortega.com/event-details/new-audaciousness-book-club

Have a wonderful end to 2021 and join us again in 2022 to hear from many more utterly audacious people!

About the Podcast

A solid grounding on which to practice your audacity.
AudaciousNess showcases individuals who have set themselves bold, audacious goals and have worked to achieve them. Our purpose is to inspire people to act with the courage to create a positive impact in the world.

Through interviewing 'regular people' about their audacious goals, we highlight the fact that role models are everywhere. Each and every one of us can have an impact in some way. Our goal is to enable a courageous community that honours their genius and lives their calling.

The name 'AudaciousNess' has two components: audacious, meaning 'bold', and ness, meaning 'a strip of land projecting into a body of water'. We believe having a solid grounding on which to practice your audacity is crucial, or, in the words of the great philosopher king Marcus Aurelius (Meditations, 4.49):

"Be like the promontory against which the waves continually break, but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it."
