Heavy Breathing Just Before Midnight: Entrepreneur and Thinker Shares fun, quirky take on life with thoughts from personality types to myopia

(October 2011) – Sandi Maki is Fresh, Fun, Creative, Quirky and Sometimes Silly, a creative mind with a passion for learning and sharing. One glance around her surroundings makes it clear how much she loves to learn—she has books everywhere and is constantly acquiring new ones. She plows through entire books in a sitting or two, and somehow manages to absorb and retain the information she reads quickly. Make no mistake—she does a whole lot more than sit around and read all day. She is a single mother of two amazing teenagers, runs two successful businesses and coaches small business owners and entrepreneurs on social media and business strategy.

Perhaps the only thing Sandi loves more than reading and learning new information is sharing that information with others. She is always up for a good conversation about a book she just finished or an old favorite. She applies what she learns and she is passionate about helping others do the same. Sandi is someone who loves to share, inspire, and instigate. She is a “waker,” as Hugh MacLeod explains:  “a waker is someone who is very good at waking other people up from their metaphorical slumber. Being around them or their work just makes you feel more alive, more inspired, more motivated, more awake.” (gapingvoid.com)

Taking an inspired series of actions, Sandi has added one more task to her list: podcasts.

Sandi’s new podcast, entitled Heavy Breathing Just before Midnight, showcases her fun and quirky take on life along with her vast and varied areas of knowledge. I know what you’re thinking (because I thought the same thing), but don’t let the title scare you. Heavy Breathing is safe for work and generally family friendly.

Tune in to Sandi’s podcast for fun, quirky and informative thoughts on a wide variety of topics. From personality types to myopia, from customer service to complaining, Sandi addresses whatever is on her mind. You won’t be tuning in to an academic lecture; she definitely won’t throw you back to college—unless you had a really awesome college professor! Sandi shares personal thoughts and stories, sprinkled with insights from the plethora of books she has read.

Listening to Heavy Breathing Just before Midnight will expose you to musings on just about anything that is on Sandi’s mind that day. She is an example of someone living with authentic transparency who loves to share her own experiences and thoughts to benefit others. So, if you can’t afford mountains of books (or have to spend money on mountains of textbooks for college), tune in to Heavy Breathing for some quick lessons on life, relationships and business. Sandi’s thoughts are applicable to any stage of life and any setting. Take advantage of a brilliant mind and great communicator and let Sandi share some wisdom with you in the form of a quick, fun podcast with a bit of Heavy Breathing.
