Gather in Growth

Gather in Growth

Where can I connect with fellow rural women who aren’t afraid to dream big dreams? How do I create and sustain daily habits that help me reach my personal and professional goals? Am I the only one that absolutely loves living in the middle of nowhere but wants to understand the world beyond my backyard? What should I do about the unshakable feeling that there’s more to life than just showing up? How do I break free from other people’s opinions and confidently live as my authentic self? Welcome to Gather in Growth, a show created for passionate, growth-focused rural women like you. From mindset work and building strong habits to nerding out over personal growth books through the lens of life on a backroad, this is a show to leave you feeling joyful, inspired, ready to take action, and a little less alone. Tune in for honest and heart-felt conversations with host, Emily Reuschel, and fellow thought leaders, to talk about personal growth and thriving as a rural woman. Here you’ll gain tactical strategies to bring your dreams to reality, real talk about the ups and downs of tackling goals, meaningful insight from fresh perspectives, and the confidence to step into the calling that’s been laid on your heart for a reason. If you crave to feel seen in a small town, you’re in the right place. Whether you’re currently running on a backroad, shuffling kids to town, hopping along for a tractor ride, or three loads deep into folding laundry… we’re in this together. Absolutely anything is possible and I’m so grateful to be on this journey with YOU! Grab you iced coffee and let’s dive in! Be sure to hit subscribe so you never miss the latest episode!

I’m so excited about today’s conversation! I met Billie Asmus at a recent Women in Ag night where I was the keynote speaker. While there, Billie shared her story of bringing her product from idea to market and I *knew* it was a journey that someone in this community needed to hear! 

Billie is a mom of two, inventor and avid DIYer. She grew up in a small rural town in northern Wisconsin, met her husband and then moved to an even sma...

As we kick off this summer season, I plan on being super intentional with my time; being present with my family, enjoying the small moments, and focusing on my mental, physical and emotional health. After coming out of the fog of my first trimester of this pregnancy, I’m ready to kick off the summer with these 6 habits that will help me reach my personal and professional goals and create a life that I love! 

As you listen to this e...

On today’s episode, I am joined by Kayla Zenner as she shares her inspiring story of replacing her income and finding alignment.

You all know how strongly I believe that you have the capability to bring any goal or dream to life. As I reflect on what I’ve learned over the past several months of my healing journey, I’ve come to realize my own attachment between achievement and worthiness, productivity and feeling like enough. I’ve been doing a lot of intentional work on untangling these ideas within myself and I’ve noticed how many others have their own versi...

On today’s episode, I have the joy of chatting with my friend, Annaliese Wegner about embracing your changing roles on and off the farm. As women, specifically women in Ag, our roles change as we continue to grow and evolve. Often with each change there can be a period of uncertainty and we adjust to what each role and season has to offer. 

Annaliese is a Wisconsin girl, dairy farmer, wife and twin mom. You might know her as Modern...

It’s officially planting season in our neck of the woods. I don’t know about you, but that means our family’s schedule gets turned upside down, sometimes for weeks on end. If you’re a farm wife, busy season might look different depending on your location, operation, or your role. If you’re not in agriculture, there may be a different time of year that looks extra chaotic compared to others. In today’s episode, I’m going to share th...

On today’s episode, I am joined by my friend, Lou Bluth! Throughout her lifetime, Lou has been on quite the journey from growing up in Texas to meeting a red bearded farmer at college in Utah to getting established in a whole new world on a Mormon colony in Mexico and eventually finding freedom as a family by living as their authentic selves. 

Lou and her husband, Bronson, have been on a journey of asking questions, personal and sp...

In today’s episode, I’m going to dive into a topic that has come up NUMEROUS times lately for both myself and amongst many other women in my life. Today is an opportunity for me to ask you, “are your goals what you actually want?” So often we latch onto a goal because we think it sounds good or we think it’s something we should achieve. But does that goal actually align with your values and what you want your everyday reality to lo...

In today’s episode, I am chatting with a new friend, Theresa Lear Levine! Throughout our conversation we talked about a tool called EFT tapping, unpacking goal trauma, understanding our subconscious mind alongside our conscious awareness, and aligning our goals to our values. It was SUCH a fascinating conversation that opened my eyes to so many new ideas and tools. I think I left our interview with more questions than answers and l...

On today’s episode, join us for a bit of a behind-the-scenes as the ASCEND retreat coaches sit down over coffee (that’s already been drank) and chat about all the things. Over the last couple years, these women have become so near and dear to my heart. They’ve seen me at my absolute best and at my sobbing worst and I’m truly honored to coach alongside them and get to share their wisdom and insights with you today.

On today’s episode I have the honor of chatting with Danna Larson of the Rural Revival Podcast. When I very first discovered podcasts back in 2019, her show was one of the first that I devoured. The stories that she shared had a huge impact on what I imagined to be possible for my life. Her storytelling shows incredible people in rural communities doing big things for their small towns. I continue to learn and be inspired by her to...

“How did you quit your 9-5?” I get asked that question all the time. I've been hesitant to share my answer because I don’t feel like my story is one that anyone should look to for any sort of game plan or advice. But, it has gotten me to where I am today nonetheless. So in today’s episode, I’ll share my story of how I left my full time career to start my own business. I hope that you’re able to take pieces of my story to gain inspi...

Today I have the honor of being joined by my sweet friend, Jenny Roth, to talk about having permission to build a life and business that you love. Back in October, there was a day where I reached out to several people to get myself the help I needed; both personally and professionally. One of those people was Jenny. Jenny is a copywriter and she and I have been working together ever since. She has blessed my life and I know she’ll ...

I feel like an alternate title for this episode could be: “Here’s a Big Giant Life Update.” You, my sweet listener, have walked through this past season with me as I've navigated a lot of changes and put in a lot of work to heal and get to where I am today. So I wanted to bring you up to speed from the last couple weeks and share some lessons learned along the way. Oh also some pretty big news!

Do you have big dreams on your heart but find yourself saying “what if I fail” or “is this even possible” or “who am I to do this”? Today I want to dive into something that is such a common and frequent struggle amongst so many women in my life. Self doubt looks different for each of us, but there’s likely this nagging feeling of “who am I” to…*insert your own dream*. In today’s episode, I want to give you seven things...

Today we’re digging into some things to keep in mind, and mindset shifts to make, as you pursue big goals in a small town. I recently asked my instagram audience about their biggest struggles as a small town dreamer and unsurprisingly, soooo many women shared nearly identical pain points. Whether you’re expanding the farm, building a business, starting to share online, beginning a health journey, jum...
