Hello and welcome to The Unconventional Path: Entrepreneurship and Innovation Stories and Ideas podcast. Today we have a very different podcast topic for you. If you have been listening to this podcast you know that Mike and I like to try new things, well this one is way out there. It is about how the experience of losing my 95-year-old mother completely changed my view of death and dying. I went from fearing it and trying to ignore it to embracing the journey and experience.

This is an episode where I talk about things I have never talked about before. I debated with myself for many hours regarding if I should express my thoughts in public. With Mike’s encouragement, we hit the record button and had a wonderful conversation.

I hope it will help you think through and process these types of events. And for me, the most important thing was not running away from it, but accepting it and embracing the experience. One of the key things that helped in the process was over the previous 5 years, my mom made it very clear what she wanted when the end was near. This removed that facet of “what should we do” as the events unfolded. I encourage you to have those conversations.

Thanks for listening, I would love to hear your thoughts about this episode. Drop us a line at bela.and.mike@gmail.com.

Our next episode will be back on topic.

Bela and Mike
