RECAP, REFLECT, and REVISE PART 1 — What Are You Most Afraid Of?

It’s hard to believe but it’s been 2 years since the birth of Curious Navel. And yes, it sounds odd, but I would call it a birth because there’s been growth and change since those first episodes. And like dealing with a child, I’m never quite sure what will happen – a guest might be reluctant or eager to share, they may be challenged to come up with an answer to something they never thought about, or they may simply want to tell a story. And I’m happy to welcome all of it. I’ve interviewed celebrities, artists, teachers, entrepreneurs, moms, dads, neighbors, and friends.

It’s not about how famous or successful someone is – and by the way, measuring either metric is a completely different conversation. It’s about listening to someone share their story, their feelings, their ideas, and seeing where the conversation takes us. It’s about finding out what we might have in common and what makes us different and unique. Whatever expectations I had for Curious Navel have been far exceeded by the delicious connections I have made with more than 100 people and counting. With each new group of guests, I find that the questions I want to ask change.

So while I look forward to the next phase of Curious Navel, I thought it might be fun to look back at how some of my guests have answered questions that I try to tease out in almost every episode. Have fun comparing your answer to one of my favorite questions -- what are you most afraid of? And I hope you join us when we launch our next episode!
