Meet Elizabeth Svatek of Conversations With Warrior Moms Podcast in Woodland Hills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Svatek.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started 13 years ago as a Mom Blogger. I was feeling isolated and wanted to connect with other Moms. That lead me to a greater understanding of how much women needed to connect and be inspired. Thinking bigger, I started an online platform for Moms called The Warrior Moms. All Moms are warriors, in the trenches every day doing the best they can for their kids. I love to feature Moms who are doing great innovative things to inspire our readers.

Then I realized the one person who wasn’t feeling inspired was me. I took a little break and realized I wanted to connect more with my readers and followers. I also wanted to connect with ALL women, not just Moms. I had heard of podcasts but had NO CLUE how to do one!! Several people kept bringing up the fact that I should do one! I was too scared to do it.

At a women’s empowerment even for The Warrior Moms, I met a podcast producer by chance and my life changed forever. She shepherded me through the process and three months later, I was ready to launch my podcasts. I decided to call it Conversations With Warrior Women because I love deep conversation and every woman I know has a great story. I wanted to highlight these stories and bring them to the world in an interview format. Conversations With Warrior Moms first episode launches April 15th, 2020. Pandemic or not, I stuck to my goal because my passion was bigger than any fears I had about putting myself out there. I’m really proud of this podcast! I’m interviewing amazing women from across the country who are leaping for greatness!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Before I started the podcast and admitted I wanted to do it, I was struggling to figure out what was next for me. I had come to a crossroads with my business, felt bored and uninspired. I was scared to make any move and felt like I was too old to start something new. I realized these were just excuses because I was afraid to try something new or fall on my face! I got over that with the help and support of an amazing tribe of women and my husband! This podcast has ignited my passion. It fills me up to talk to these women about lessons they have learned, struggles they have had, and what makes them keep going. I love podcasting! There is no shortage of dynamic women to talk to!!

Conversations With Warrior Moms Podcast – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Before I started my podcast, Conversations With Warrior Women, I researched as many podcasts as I could to get a feel for the market. There are a lot of great ones. I am a fan of Happier with Gretchen Rubin, Unlocking Us with Brene Brown, and The Beautiful writers podcast. There were things I loved about them and other podcasts, but I couldn’t find one that had the kind of interviews and conversations I wanted to hear. I didn’t want to just talk about marriage, or kids, or business. I wanted to talk about how to navigate a busy life, how to stay true to yourself, how to challenge yourself and grow in the face of fear and failure. I wanted to have the kind of conversations you have with really good girlfriends. Deep conversations where you come away feeling full, understood and inspired. I am really proud of this podcast because of its diversity and depth.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success and happiness go hand in hand for me. If I am feeling happy, it’s because I’m being challenged, I love my work, I am surrounded by smart dynamic people and I am learning. As a writer, I have to express. That may be an article, a journal entry, working on my book, or writing a podcast interview.

I have realized that success is different for everyone. Things I would consider success, do not ring true for some of my guests. Having things perfect on paper does not define success. What makes people feel happy is what’s going on in their hearts and minds. When I have a great day of podcasting and producing, I happily come to the dinner table with stories to tell. There is great conversation in our family because we’re all trying to learn and better ourselves. Being inspired gives me the courage to leap for success.
