Ep157: The 2022 Life Update Show

As Eleanor Roosevelt famously said, Absence makes the heart grow fonder, so today I simply want to say hello, reconnect and bring you up to speed on what I’ve been up to and what I have planned for 2022.

Episode Summary:

Hello and welcome to episode 157: The 2022 Life Update Show. 

It’s been a minute since I published an episode and I simply wanted to touch base and provide a quick life and business update. So, let’s go.

Life Updates 2022:

  • In early January of 2022, I had to move out of my little old beach cottage that I have been happily renting for over 11 years because it was sold (big bummer)
  • I lost my full-time job of 3+ years at Simplecast/SiriusXM on the exact same day (also a bummer because of the bad timing)
  • The good news is I found an awesome place for rent right across the alley from my old cottage and I love the new digs/studio.
  • The other good news is that I can focus on Mike Murphy Co and making a living as a tutorial maker and content creator (which is my North Star)

Quote:
“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”    - Eckhart Tolle 

Life Updates 2021:

  • The pandemic life was not fun, but Florida ignored it and my day-to-day routines did not change all that much
  • I  remained healthy throughout and never tested positive, but who knows
  • The podcasting industry blew up during the pandemic which was a good thing, but I also started to burn out a little
  • I took a 7-week leave of absence in August of 2021  to recharge my mind and body

Trip of A Lifetime

  • I walked from St. Jean Pied de Port, France (starting on Aug 26, 2021)
  • I walked 15-20 miles per day for 40+ days over the Pyrenees and across all of Spain
  • I ended up in Muxia, Spain  in early October and walked a total of 650 miles
  • The Camino life was simple and incredible 
  • The mantra I lived by was 'One thing to do and all day to do it (walk from Village A to Village B)'
  • The to-do list was Walk, Eat, Drink, Sleep, Repeat.

Resources Mentioned in Episode:

  1. Movie: The Way starring Martin Sheen
    If you have any thoughts about going, do it! It's beyond words how amazing the experience was.  
  2. Book: The Courage To Be Disliked  by Ichiro Kishimi
    It's a book about how to find happiness and I really enjoyed it. It was recommended by a great YouTuber named Ali Abdaal.  

Mike Murphy Co in 2022:

  • My main focus is on growing the Mike Murphy Co YouTube channel  and increasing revenue streams
  • Weekly Livestreams
  • Creating a digital product (class)
  • Writing on Medium
  • Freelance & Consulting Gigs (helping people figure things out)

Mike Murphy Unplugged Podcast:

  • No set schedule or pressure on me to publish, but there will be new episodes
  • I see it evolving into more of a personal audio journal to connect with you and the community
  • The podcast will be my outlet to share life and business updates.
