This is my 200th episode, and I’m so glad you’re here. Whatever way we found each other, whichever podcast it was over the past four years that moved you enough to come back, thank you. I never take for granted that you share your most precious resource with me: your time.
I didn’t know a thing about podcasting back in episode one. And if you listen to it (please don’t), my amateurishness is palpable. The nerves of a novice, ruminating between “what if no one tunes in” to “what if people listen, but they don’t like me,” to “what if I run out of things they want to hear.”
Then came the devotion test. “Can I really commit to publishing one every week? Plus, it MUST be high-quality because that’s who I am – all in, no excuses.” And through political unrest, family stuff, multiple moves, funerals, a freakin’ pandemic, I haven’t skipped a single one.
So, let’s celebrate episode 200 together with a toast to consistency. This week, I’ll show you how to fortify your dedication and reveal techniques to stir up creativity and source fresh ideas.
What You’ll Learn in this Episode:
- Mind mapping thoughts into a plan
- Granting yourself permission to be vague
- Unpredictable results & letting go of the outcome
- Faults in children that become assets in adults
- Trusting your creativity to be unlimited

Full Episode Transcript:
Hello. It is 10:00 am in New York, 4:00 pm in Johannesburg, and 9:00 pm in Bangkok. Welcome to the Expat Happy Hour. This is Sundae Schneider-Bean from www.sundaebean.com. I am a solution-orientated coach and intercultural strategist for individuals and organizations. I am on a mission to help you adapt and succeed when living abroad and get you through any life transition.
When I was a little girl, I would stand by my mom while she was having coffee with a friend and chatting away. And I’d go, “Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom! Mom!” Until she finally stopped and listened to what I had to ask her. Other times, I would request something special and then come at her 17 different ways, with 17 different reasons why I should be able to get it. And she retells these stories to me. She clenches her teeth and she says, “Oh Sundae, you are so persistent,” with love, of course.
The thing is, the things that drive our parents crazy when we’re young are actually precursors to our success as an adult. I promise! And I’m gonna prove it to you in a little bit. But first it’s time to celebrate! We are celebrating episode 200 of Expat Happy Hour! And I want to pause for a moment to say my heartfelt, “Thank you,” to each and every one of you who have been with me along that journey. Maybe you’ve been here since episode one, God forbid, do not go back and listen to episode 1! Because I learned how to podcast by podcasting. Or maybe you’ve just joined me in recent weeks. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for listening, it means the world to me. And that we started out with just a handful of listeners.
And now, I just saw last week that based on our stats, Expat Happy Hour is doing better than 90% of all podcasts. So that is so humbling, and it wouldn’t be possible to celebrate that without you. We are in week 5 of 6 weeks of behind-the-scenes series. In parallel, if you’re in my Facebook group Expats On Purpose you hopefully have been enjoying the five weeks of Expat Coach Secrets, where we are talking about behind-the-scenes things on how you can serve expats better. What are some of the tools from a coaching perspective that are working for expats? How do you amplify your business? If you are running a globally mobile business, what’s stopping you and what will help fast-track you right? We talked about visibility and voice.
And today we’re going to talk about the C-Word. No, not that one and not COVID. We’re talking about Consistency. And as you heard at the top of this episode, I persist, I keep at things. And consistency has been a key to success in many areas of my life. And that’s why I’m choosing this topic of consistency as I celebrate the 200th episode.
Now, let’s put that in perspective. In January 2017, I put out the very first episode and for 200 consecutive weeks in a row, without fail, I have released a new episode, right? We’re in the fourth year, season four. And I’ve done this through summer vacations, through funerals, business trips. The unexpected and the predictable overwhelm that comes with things that are planned already in my life or in my business, right. So I want to share that with you. That is something we’re celebrating but it’s also something we’re sharing on how I did it.
If you followed Expat Happy Hour, you know that what I do with Expat Happy Hour is probably one of two things. I really work hard to share what’s on your hearts and minds, and add value in that way to the episodes. Or I aim to bring topics to the forefront that we just don’t talk about openly enough, right? So I did ask you, you know, what do you want to hear about in this 200th episode? And here’s what you said. You wanted to know: 1. How I get my ideas. 2. What it takes to get there. And 3. Why do I do it?
So in this episode, that’s what I’m going to do. But first, I’m going to bring back one of my favorite guests from a prior episode. The youngest guest Expat Happy Hour has ever seen. If you remember from episode 18, I interviewed my boys and I asked my youngest and my oldest if they wanted to come back on Expat Happy Hour and the interview was politely declined by my middle schooler, of course. But my now eight-year-old has agreed to come on and answer these three questions, the ones that I’ll answer for you today, but we’re going to find out from him what he thinks first.
Sundae: Alrighty, we have one of my favorite guests on here. Are you ready, hon, to answer a couple questions today?
“Bailey: Yes, I am.
Sundae: Okay. First of all, first question. Do you know the name of my podcast?
Bailey: Expats Coach Coalition?
Sundae: It’s very close. That’s one of the programs I do. The name is Expat Happy Hour.
Sundae: Okay. So people wanted to know from me three things. Because today is my 200th episode of Expat Happy Hour. And they want to know a few things from me, but maybe let’s check with you first to see if you know the answers.
Sundae: Okay, so I’ve done two hundred episodes.
Sundae: Right? How do you think I get ideas?
Bailey: Um… Other people?
Sundae: Right. What else?
Bailey: Internet? Yeah.
Sundae: Do you know what I talk about on the Expat Happy Hour?
Bailey: Um, to help people adapt and what else? Adapt and succeed.
Sundae: So awesome. Okay, so I get ideas from the internet from other people. That’s true. What do you think, if the way you know mama, what do you think it takes for me to create 200 episodes week after week after week?
Bailey: A lot of patience. A lot of patience and you have two kids that sometimes are really annoying. And a lot of concentration.
Sundae: That’s true. You guys aren’t annoying honey. You’re healthy. Healthy, normal, active boys.
Sundae: Hmm. All right, so concentration that’s true. Patience. Why do you think I do it?
Bailey: Um, to help people adapt and succeed, like I just said.
Sundae: Okay. Any other reasons why you think I do it?
Bailey: Help people.
Sundae: Yeah. I do like to help people. If you could say anything to the listeners of Expat Happy Hour, what would you like to tell them about me?
Bailey: Um, she’s a great mom.
Sundae: Thank you, buddy, for joining me on Expat Happy Hour. Now, I’m going to tell them my answers to the questions. Thanks, bud.”
Now that you’ve heard it from him. I’ll let you now hear it from me.
All right, so here it goes behind-the-scenes of how I have consistently released 200 episodes in a row. First: How do I get ideas? All right. Well, I get ideas from a variety of places. But people often, you know, when they talk about how many episodes I’ve done or how I consistently put out content, they think it’s something, like, amazing or something really unique.
But honestly, here’s my perspective. I look at it like I have a cup. And that cup is full of something, right? As soon as I pour that cup, what’s in that cup out, the cup fills again. So how do you get to episode 200? You do episode one. And then two. And then three. And every time you empty that cup out, it gets refilled. So in fact consistency is a driver of creativity that if you’re just hoarding your ideas, you’re actually stopping ideas from coming out consistently. So honestly, one of the biggest tips to being seen as a well of ideas is just get your ideas out and create more. Creativity is not limited. There’s no end.
You don’t have like 12 units of something creative in you, it is part of who you are. And if you are engaging in the world, if you’re living your life, if you’re connecting with clients, you will have unlimited value to add and your creativity will be without end. So please trust me. If you commit to a weekly podcast or a monthly podcast or blog or whatever creative endeavor it is, know that once you pour out that cup it will fill up again because you are a creative being without end.
So I get my ideas from, as I said, from a lot of places. So one of them is my own life. My clients. Struggles I’ve had. Struggles my clients have had. Things I’m seeing in the expat community or from amazing experts that I meet along the way. I’m going to focus on a few now and give you some examples. So if you’re looking to get ideas for whatever your project is, that maybe you can get inspired as well.
All right, let’s start with the first one; Oftentimes, I get inspiration from something mundane that is happening in my own life and I immediately see a client connection. So one example of that was episode 166, The Raw Edges of Entrepreneurship. Where my trip to the gym actually resulted in insight on what I’m offering you about where you are in your business. Here’s an example:
“Last Wednesday, I remember my personal trainer told me to get on this machine. It kind of looks like a space mobile thing and I have to put my arms out a little bit like a butterfly and then squish my elbows almost together. And I got these untrained kind of ballet arms. This is not something that I’m gonna thrive at right away. And I remember sitting down and as I sat down to start this exercise, he grabbed the pin from the weights at the bottom and moved it all the way up to the top. So, whoever was there before took on like ten times more weight than I did. And I looked at him, I’m like, that’s not motivating to watch the gap between where this other person was and where I am.
And don’t look at the pin is probably the first piece of advice I want to start out with in today’s episode. We’re looking at our lives and businesses abroad, don’t pay attention where someone else’s pin is because you don’t know how much effort they put in. You don’t know what if their body is different from yours, how many years they’ve been doing that, what they’ve sacrificed to get there. Keep your eyeballs on your own pin where it is in the weights for your level.”
All right, there you have it. Something as simple as me putting a pin in a weight resulted in something that I could share with you about what to do or not to do as an entrepreneur.
Okay. Sometimes I get my inspiration not from my life, but by listening to my clients and what bugs them. And In episode 172, we talked about something I noticed over time and these are Party Fouls.
Party fouls are things that happen to accompanying partners, when they are at social gatherings, that make them feel small and attack their self-worth. So, it was important to me that we get that on the table. So if you’re committing party fouls, you gotta knock it off! And if you are one who is subject to party fouls, you can create strategies to stop them. Here’s an example.
“Carolyn Question 1: What really gets on my nerves is that when we arrive at a function or a party and we introduce ourselves, people just assume that I’m the woman therefore I’m not working, that we are in this location because of my husband’s job. And yes, we are actually. But then the conversation just goes on to talk about him and his job. And whoever we meet they never ever turn around and ask what I do.
For those of you who’ve been here, you know how isolating this can feel and you can feel invisible. Here Claire shares more that illustrates this when people find out that it isn’t her who has the assignment.
Claire: I’m very short. So they start looking over my eye line. Because I’m a pretty small person and my stature unless I’m wearing stilettos. They can’t really see me, I’m not looking at them eye to eye. And then I’ve started noticing where people will start gauging the room. Like, “Where do I go next?” Because I’m not going to either help them in their career or they can’t talk to me about whatever. And it’s like “Listen, I don’t really want to talk to you either but I’m not a jerk.”
Sundae: So party foul is looking above the eyes scanning the room. Excuse me. Oh my God.”
Okay, there you have it. So there’s a no no one party fouls. That’s a struggle that nobody needs to deal with. We don’t have to deal with that anymore. Come on everybody. Knock it off and let’s say no to party fouls when they happen to us. But also if we’re doing it, we got to take a look and do it differently.
Now let’s look at episode 167 where I took one of my own struggles and shared it with you and how I worked through it to solve a problem that I was facing. In episode 167, Be Your Own Fairy Godmother, I shared how I got hit hard from a COVID related disappointment and what I did to make the most of it.
“And here’s the truth. When I found out that the conference was canceled that was crushed and I felt lost. From a business and a personal perspective. Loss of the face-to-face time with friends that I’ve made since 2018. Loss of the face-to-face reunions with other valued members of this community. I had three days of writing scheduled in person with another member. It was a chance for me to meet new people, a chance to learn new things, a chance to be present and potentially build relationships with potential clients. So it also means a loss of potential revenue.
And the excitement of being in another culture and around other cultures. The opportunity to interview guests for Expat Happy Hour and share that with you. And even in the spirit of fresh, I was going to take a Thai Boxing class. All of it lost.
And if I’m really honest it was also a chance for me to be alone for five minutes and not have someone under the age of 12 ask me for anything. To have a rare moment of silence by myself. Be at the hotel where no one’s going to ask you where something’s at when you’re in the bathroom. So all of that is gone with one email. And it hit me hard because so much of this conference means growth and connection and inspiration, and it was gone.
And it threw me into the very predictable seven stages of grief. Shocked, I was paralyzed from the news for a second. Denial, like “Oh my God, this isn’t happening.” Angry at the coronavirus for first stopping this. Bargaining, like “Wait a minute. Can I still go to Bangkok? Will someone meet me there? Can we still kind of do most of what we planned?” And then just really, the depression phase, feeling in a funk like, “Ah, no, why?” And then by the time I was done being mad at the coronavirus I climbed back into my coaching pants.
So here’s what I did next. And I am offering this to you now, so you can find a way to take back control of whatever is flying off the handle in your life right now.
So in the testing phase of grief and seeking realistic solutions. I was like, “Okay Sundae, what needs are being met by this Plan A?” Plan A was the conference. And when I was honest with myself, I reviewed all the things I just shared with you. Connection, the community, face-to-face time, connecting with people, learning, growing, playfulness, networking, all of that.
So I was able to name the needs. And those are needs. And the strategy was the conference. I think we confuse that often. We often confuse strategy for needs. But that’s not the case. The conference was the strategy. And now that that strategy was gone I had to ask myself, “How else can I meet those needs?”
So I got creative and I said, “Well what if I just canceled my leg from Doha to Bangkok and tried to meet some of my FIGT crew in Doha?” So I hopped on WhatsApp and I connected with people in the area and from my FIGT family. And you know what? By focusing on the needs and not the strategy here’s what I was able to line up. Face-to-face with one person from the community, face-to-face with a client who happens to live here. I’m in the process of hopefully scheduling a group presentation, even though that’s not yet set in stone. I am meeting my new project manager in person who just happens to live here, that was total serendipity. I’ve got two face-to-face podcast interviews coming your way with two expat leaders that I deeply respect. I’m still doing three days of writing that I had planned but it’s virtual instead of face-to-face. And in the spirit of fresh, instead of Thai boxing I’m going to a camel race. And just this morning I was able to wake up when I wanted and sit in silence and drink my coffee. Not bad.”
All right, that episode is really interesting because that was actually the last international trip that I took before everything accelerated and started going into lockdown. So I was happy that happened but it happened thankfully at the right time before everything went crazy. That is an example of where I don’t share my wounds but I share my scars. So if you are someone who is, you know, wanting to do weekly podcasts or blogs and you’re going through something hard, an important thing to do is look at when you have gone through the hard and now have clarity, right. You’ve gone from wound to scar. How can you share that journey with people so that they can get value and learn from it. So the idea of, “don’t do as I do,” and they can avoid the mistakes that you’ve made or, “do what I did,” because that fast-tracked trouble.
All right, the last place that I can get ideas from is when we look at issues that we just don’t talk about enough. One of the things I’m committed to on Expat Happy Hour is, straight talk. And there are things that, whether we like it or not, that are taboos in our expat community and the global mobility space. Where we don’t spend enough time facing it in addressing it head on. So I like to use Expat Happy Hour as a platform to talk about the things that no one is talking about, everyone is struggling with, or thinking. So here’s a couple that I’ve done in the past where I can draw those ideas from in episode 177, Mellowing Menopause. I invited expert Jane Ordaz to come on and talk about why it’s important for us to talk about menopause because it’s a transition, within a transition, within the transition, right? Menopause has a shame around it for some reason and it was time to break that taboo.
In episode 163, I invited Shellee Burroughs to come and she talked about trauma recovery. What we can do to support our children as they’re going through really tough transitions and how to know when it’s time to get an expert to support. Because they’ve gone beyond just struggle and gone into trauma. And in the next episode, 165, I invited April Remfrey to talk about how to expand the bubble. And that specific around education and special education in international schools. And we looked head on about, how can we serve more kids on the wide spectrum of needs. Whether it’s a gifted child or another child with special needs. How can we serve them better? Here’s what April had to say.
“Sundae: So I want to hear from you. One of your areas of expertise is helping families that have children with special needs when they’re searching for a new school. So what do parents need to know when they’re heading to the next school or looking for the next school?
April: Well, one of the things that scares schools away is when they just hear this label. So when you hear the label autism, for some reason people of my age group tend to think one specific thing. Maybe from a movie or someone they knew growing up. And that the idea of autism has really changed in the last 10 years. People are seeming to be a little bit more educated about it. But still in the international school world you can’t go to a school and say, “My child has ADHD. My child has autism.” Because for some reason one specific picture comes up and then the school is making an admissions decision based on kind of this void of information.
Sundae: That is incredible, right? Like you either get to come or not based on a few letters. And they have no context. And I mean I am not informed on this, but everybody talks about there’s a spectrum. And who knows how children thrive when their needs are supported.
April: Absolutely. But I think some of the big things that parents need to be aware of when they’re planning a move. Is that you need to start to become your child’s official record-keeper. You need to be the one that’s sitting on the side of the court taking stats. And you have to, three to six months before your move, start collecting your kids teachers perspectives. Ask them what are their strengths and weaknesses in the classroom. Because we know our kids at home, but we don’t know them at school. We can pretend we do. But we don’t fully know who they are at school. And that teacher is the one that can give you that perspective. You need to ask them what kinds of things do you do that help them be successful in the classroom. We call them strategies. What are the successful strategies in the classroom?”
All right. There you go. Just a little sample of how I get my ideas. But here’s the thing. The truth is sometimes I don’t have an idea but I know that I’ve got to produce a podcast this week. So I’m going to tell you what it takes to get there. What I do is I block out a specific time every single Monday. That is my podcast creation time and there are times when I have no idea what I’m going to say. And this is this moment of trust, where remember the cup that I said that is limitless, that is full. And if I dump it out something else will come. I literally sit at my desk during my podcast time.
I now have broken it down to two and a half hours. It used to take me hours and hours and hours. Now, I limit myself to two and a half and I go from zero ideas, to recorded podcast. And what I do is I sit down in front of a blank piece of paper and I just reflect on some of the things I’ve said. What are some of the struggles that I’ve had lately? What are some of the struggles my clients have had? What are the “AHA” moments my clients have had? What is, you know, timely that needs to be addressed? What am I feeling passionate about that we’re not talking about enough. And I give myself a little time, a little space to brainstorm on that.
For example, even for this six weeks behind-the-scenes series. I did a mind map of behind-the-scenes and six topics that I thought might be interesting. And I give myself permission to not know exactly what I’m going to say. Once I have a general idea of the topic, I sit down and I think about what is the one thing I want you to walk away with? What is the one as I call them, “BBO’s, BIG BOSSY OPINIONS,” that I want you to have clear in your mind when we walk away.
And today, really clearly, I wanted to celebrate the 200 episodes, but I also wanted you to walk away with clarity on how critical consistency is to your work. And then give you some tips on how to make that happen. So blocking time, trusting the process that if you reflect on your challenges, your clients’ challenges, things that you’re seeing in the community that are urgent or taboo. You will have one important thing that you can share with your community, right?
So that is how I walk through it. I do some mind mapping and then I seriously just pop in a few notes into an Excel sheet with the key ideas I want to make sure that I’m talking about, just like I’m doing right now. And I go for it. I hit record and I freestyle. Now, I’m episode 200. I can freestyle episode 1. I think I was literally reading from a script. So this is of course a journey, but there is a level of trust in this process that end a level of surrender. If I have a few ideas, I want to make sure I communicate with you. That I will trust that what needs to be shared, will. And when I say trusting the process here is something really important about that. I absolutely have to let go of the outcome.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done a podcast. I really invest a lot of thought into it, you know, careful crafting of my tips and what I want to say. And I walk away from that podcast thing, “Ding! That’s going to be a good one.” And I get crickets, you know. Downloads are mediocre. I don’t hear anything back from the newsletter and I thought it was going to be great. Then I have sort of a stressful moment where I’m like, “Crap, it’s Monday. I’ve got to do a podcast. I have no idea what I’m going to say. I’m kind of blocked. Fine, I’ll do this idea.” I record the podcast and it feels uncomfortable when I’m doing it.
I send it to the producer and I actually wonder if it was a bad idea. I’m second-guessing myself and then it goes out and then I hear from five people saying, “You know Sundae, it’s like you’re a fly on the wall,” or “How are you inside my head.”
So after doing this for literally hundreds of episodes I’ve realized I have no control over what you will find meaningful. I have no control over what you will find valuable. I have to trust that you’re going to hear exactly what you need to hear when you need it. Or maybe you won’t. But one person will, right? So what does it take to get to 200 consistent episodes? Blocking the time. Training your body, “This is what you’re doing.” Treating it as non-negotiable and trusting the process right? Letting go of the outcome and knowing that “done” is much better than “perfect,” right? And showing up consistently week after week to do it.
All right, you might be asking yourself, “Sundae. Whoa that that’s a big commitment,” right? “Why do you do it? Why do you do it?” Check out episode 199 for more details on that. It gives insight into what I talk about, “calling in my pack,” right. If I howl I trust my pack will find me and we will find each other.
Find safety in numbers and together. We are in alignment in positioning and know what to look out for and know where to go get what is most important to you, right? So episode 199, I share more about that. But I do it because connection is important to me and this is a way that I can connect with you. I was doing one-to-one coaching for a long time and came in contact with, you know, 10 to 20 to 30 people every week. And that connection is really meaningful for me. But I realized that I was limiting my connection to my live face-to-face time. That if I did my work in new ways, I could create that connection not just with tens, you know, dozens of people. I could create that connection with thousands of people or tens of thousands of people, or millions of people.
So it’s a way for me to connect with you and it’s a way for me to have that straight talk. The things that we need to be talking about more. That behind the curtain discussion of how we’re getting impacted by this globally mobile life. How people’s self-worth takes a hit. How marriages have strain. How we feel insecure about whether we’re doing a good enough job with our kids. How we’re looking for more purpose and meaning. All of those things. These are important topics for us to see in ourselves and for us to talk about with the people we care about and to bring from behind the curtains, to remove the taboo.
So that’s why I do it and I do it because growth is a core value of mine and doing this podcast has been an immense growth experience for me. It’s not something I felt was natural to me. It’s not something that felt comfortable for me. It was uncomfortable pretty much almost every single time, but I do it anyway, and I know that it’s a way for you to have growth.
I know that if you’re listening and you’re paying attention to the tips and you’re trying new things out in your listening for yourself and these stories that it will help you grow as well, right? It enables me to share what I do and offer my work to those people who are not in a position to work with me or not ready to work with me. It’s a way I can serve which is absolutely free for you.
And I think there’s, you know, it’s a place that I can just simply love the crap out of you, right? Like, let me give you what’s on my heart and mind and share with you. What is a value and have that be enough because it’s important to me. It’s important for me to have a space where I can stand for what’s important to me and I can communicate issues that I think are missing in this globally mobile space. And that is already enough.
So those are some of the reasons why I do it. It’s around connection. It’s around growth. It’s about loving on my people. And it’s about being a service, right? And it’s a way for me, as I said in episode 199, to howl and for my pack to find me so I can be of service in deeper ways with my clients.
All right, y’all this is episode 200 and it’s about a simple topic. It’s about consistency and I don’t want you to underestimate the power of consistency. It is the driver actually behind creativity. It is the driver behind connection and it is the driver behind establishing trust.
So if consistency feels limiting to you, if you don’t see yourself as someone with a ton of discipline. Look at it differently.
Do you like to connect? Do you like to stand behind your values? Do you like to break down taboos? Do you like to share Insight behind the curtains? Do you like to add value? Do you like to create trust? Those are things that you can lead with and the method is through consistency.
So, I hope that that gave you something you can work with for those of you who are in this space. Who want to share your message with people and are wondering how to get more ideas and what it takes to get them. Those are some tips from 200 episodes from me to you.
All right, if you want to learn more about how to create visibility, use your voice, hone your message so you can consistently and joyfully show up for your pack. Then my invitation to you is to check out Expat Coach Coalition. I am taking applications, spots are filling right now.
It is a four month program where I work with people who are emerging as coaches or have already established themselves and want to uplevel their business. Or maybe, you know you want to work with expats, but you haven’t yet made the leap to do so and are flirting with the idea of serving coaches in that way. This is absolutely for you because we’re looking at half of our time on some of the tools, methodology to help serve expats no matter where they are in their own journey.
As well as some hard-hitting business insight on how you can amplify your business. So check it out. You can apply by going to the link in the show notes for Expat Coach Coalition. We can hop on the phone or I’ve got info sessions coming up at the end of October and early November for you to just learn more about Expat Coach Coalition.
You might have also been following my five-part series on Expat Coach Secrets. You would have learned some of those tools firsthand and around the art of coaching in the business of coaching. So that gives you a taste of what to expect from Expat Coach Coalition. All right, I would love to be by your side and have you join this amazing community of other talented individuals who are equally passionate about serving expats. So check it out.
