The Chris Voss Show Podcast – On Second Thought… Maybe I Can by Debbie Weiss

On Second Thought… Maybe I Can by Debbie Weiss

On Second Thought… Maybe I Can is the story of a chubby, insecure, and scared little girl who spent her life doing what was expected of her and taking care of everyone but herself. Like many of us, she was ready to stop using others’ opinions and her personal circumstances as an excuse to continue living a life she didn’t love. When Debbie turned 50, she had an epiphany that changed her life: “On Second Thought… Maybe I Can.” She realized she had the power to transform her life all along, she just didn’t know it. Debbie’s journey shows us it’s never too late to pursue the life you want.

Here are some key points from the podcast transcript:

Guest Debbie Weiss is the author of a memoir called “On Second Thought, Maybe I Can” about overcoming obstacles and living out dreams.

She became a caregiver for her father at a young age which forced her to mature quickly. This experience gave her tools to help others later.

At 50, Weiss had an epiphany, realizing she had lost herself always caring for others. This motivated her transformation.

She coaches women on personal development, limiting beliefs, goal-setting, and self-care. Mothers often neglect themselves helping others.

The journey itself has lessons, not just the destination. Collecting life stories teaches us. Weiss shares stories in her book and coaching.

Caregivers need timeouts to refill themselves. Self-care is essential, not selfish.

In summary, Weiss aims to inspire people that circumstances don’t have to define you. Her memoir and coaching help women put themselves first to ultimately help others more.
