Why I’m Retiring the Life Editor Podcast
I’m not one of those coaches who spouts a lot of self-development mumbo jumbo but never walks her talk.
I really do follow my Life Editing Process! And today, I’m using Step 2 to delete a bad influence that started out nice but slowly became a major drain on my time and energy.
I’m retiring The Life Editor Podcast.
Some of you may be thinking, “Oh no! I loved her podcast.” While others are asking, “Wait…Sage had a podcast?”
And that’s one of the problems. I couldn’t get on a regular posting schedule with my podcasts. They took more time to put together than my videos or written blog posts.
For nearly a year I kept trying to make it work, and I even shortened the recordings in hopes that I could pump them out faster. But nope.
Here’s the thing that really sealed the deal: making podcasts wasn’t fun anymore.
Well, am I a Life Editor or not?
I knew I couldn’t keep limping along like this when there are tons of other more exciting things I could be working on such as Life Editor Weekend, Life Editor Academy, and my upcoming 2017 Edited Year Planners.
To those of you who will miss my podcasts, thank you for your support. I’ll be adding the recordings to the Life Editor Clubhouse so you can listen to them whenever you want.
I feel lighter and happier already. Because isn’t that the whole point of life editing?

Aw, I’m bummed to see the podcasts go! I loved your podcasts, Sage 🙂 They would always amp me up on a long afternoon. But like Susan and Nalana said, really looking forward to see what new things come from your creativity and passion.
Thanks, Katherine. It wasn’t an easy decision, but I’m excited to be focusing on more videos and live events.
Honestly, Sage, I suck at deleting. It feels like failure. And I hate that I feel that way. There are so many things I could/should delete and I struggle to do it. I currently have an offering in my business and it sounds like your podcast – taking up too much time, not being able to do other things you love – and in my case not really helping my bottom line. How do you know when it’s time to Delete? Or do you give something more time to develop before you remove it? (my offering has been going on since April and its a monthly activity)
P.S. I enjoyed the podcast epi’s I listened to. 🙂 You did a great job, but I can understand how it could be so time consuming to create regularly.
Thanks, Nalana. I usually know it’s time to delete something when I’m not getting a good return on investment. Are you satisfied with the results you’re getting in relation the amount of effort? Deleting isn’t failure. It’s freeing you up to work on more valuable things rather than half-assing everything you do.
YAY! Good for you Sage,
You give me courage. Your post tells me not to be afraid to edit something out of my life that isn’t working, or that I don’t like doing.
Just bin it if it isn’t fun, pulling you down, dragging your feet…..
So cool to see that you put yourself and your needs first.
I can now say “Well if Sage can do it and not worry, then so can I.”
Sorry that the podcast thing didn’t work out.
(will be talking with my Mastermind girls about this post. Ladies please remind me K.J.N.)
Thanks so much, Susan! Really, it was becoming such a burden. I’m having more fun doing videos and creating Clubhouse Classes. Just because we start something doesn’t mean we need to stick with it until the bitter end. Deleting what doesn’t serve us can make a huge difference in our happiness. 🙂
