Aubrey Greenan || Placing your heart in the work that matters most

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

May I be straight with you?  Aubrey Greenan is a female unicorn.

She is gorgeous, obviously; she is mega talented as a professionally trained opera singer (and I'd add so many more talents to that list); she is incredibly bright, knowledgeable, and eloquent; and, the best part, Aubrey is one of the most sincerely kind and level-headed people I've ever known.

In the podcast today, Aubrey and I speak about her path to attending one of the most prestigious vocal programs in the country, her struggles with health and anxiety that humbled her, and how acknowledging her limits and what mattered most to her better empowered her to choose a path that looked very different from the one she easily could have pursued.  In short, this woman chose family over fame.

I know Aubrey's interview will empower you to take stock of your own needs, your deepest goals in life, and to better place your heart in the work that matters most to you, instead of what the world tell you to.

Listen below, on iTunes, Stitcher, Pocketcasts, Googleplay, or search for "About Progress" in your podcast apps.


  1. Monica, this was great! I know we just missed each other in Walnut Creek, but I know Aubrey and tuned in to the podcast. I love how you call her a unicorn.. I mean, who doesn't love/wish-to-be Aubrey?! This was a great interview that really rang true on a lot of things I am going through as a parent-- having to let go of some perfectionism and expectations of myself and others. Life is crazy, and even if we aren't all faced with the choice of fame, I think we can all relate to how our choices affect where our life leads, and sometimes wondering what could have been. Aubrey mentioned trying to be present in each section and season of life. It is such a challenge but something I'm trying to work on too. I think that's when we find the most joy and gratitude. Anyway, props to you for being brave and starting this blog and doing something that makes you happy! And Aubrey, you're awesome and wonderful.

    1. You are the best to comment! I'm sorry I didn't see this until just now. I'm so glad you listened and hope you find other episodes that resonate with you as well. Wish we could have had more time together!


I love to hear from you and try to respond to most comments. Thank you!
