    LISTEN TO OUR LATEST LAUNCH

Blaze Your Own Trail with Rebekah Bastian

Meet Rebekah Bastian, a vice president at Zillow Group, CEO and co-founder of OwnTrail.com, and author of Blaze Your Own Trail: An Interactive Guide to Navigating Life with Confidence, Solidarity, and Compassion. Her book explores the different decisions and pathways women take through their personal and professional lives. It encourages the reader to embrace the idea that there is no one right path through life. In this episode, Rebekah tells us when we’re going through a hard time, the most powerful thing we can do for ourselves and others is to share that experience authentically.

Rebekah admits they didn’t plan on launching a business in the middle of the pandemic, yet, it feels more important now than ever. It is helping women figure out hard things in life, and they can run everything virtually.

When we’re going through a hard time, the most powerful thing we can do for ourselves and others is to share that experience authentically. It means so much to other people because we realize we’re not in it alone. With OwnTrail.com, Rebekah and her team hope that people are sharing experiences and even topics that seem taboo. 

Takeaways:

  • When we’re going through hard things, the most powerful thing we can do for ourselves and others is to share that experience authentically. Sharing helps us realize we’re not in it alone.
  • We’re all going through these various phases of grief and coping and discovery through this pandemic.
  • Spend some time paying attention to what you’re passionate about, what you’re good at, and where you’re needed. When we triangulate the answer to those three questions, that’s generally the right direction to go in.
