S3 EP5 Embracing Change In Holiday Traditions, Featuring Stephany Erlbeck, Founder of Steph's Fit Culture
Some stories can both break your heart and inspire. This is that story. Stephany Erlbeck unexpectedly lost her husband two days after his 50th birthday, leaving her and her four children, ages 8 through 19, reeling emotionally and financially. Simply unprepared for an event like this, Stephany had to build her and her family's life back in every way. This isn't a foreign dilemma. Many women simply aren't prepared for a sudden loss of a partner-- whether that be divorce or passing of a loved one. Stephany, owner of multiple "Bodyrok" fitness gyms and founder of "Steph's Fit Culture," was able to follow her passions to get back control for herself and the future of her family. The last layer for Stephany to address was loss during the holidays, something that most of us encounter and struggle with in our second acts. Loss of loved ones. Loss of tradition as kids age out and evolve. It's flat out hard, and we need to address it. This episode is about loss, gaining back control and evolving our approach to traditions in whatever second act we face.
