I’m really happy to bring you this episode today, but it comes with a content warning, because it includes discussion of suicide.

For a long time, I’ve wanted to have a story about hoarding.

This is something I personally find really interesting. We’ve all seen pictures or videos of the inside of the home of someone who’s a hoarder. And of course, the reality TV show, Hoarders, puts it right out there. And everyone sees that and wonders, how does someone allow their environment to get to that point?

And then I discovered Margy. She works in the podcast industry. I guess you could say I knew “of” her, and then later we became more connected because she’s a listener of this podcast, and I’ve watched what she’s been doing to achieve some amazing business success. When I found out that she had dealt with hoarding first hand, I knew I wanted to have her on the show.

But what I love about this story is that it’s not just about the shocking reality of dealing with the hoarding issue.

Some of the things Margy and I talk about are

  • How she channeled grief into energy
  • How a seemingly impossible challenge made her unstoppable
  • The one unexpected thing that a lot of high achievers have in common
  • And the bizarre name she came up with for her podcast

Just before our conversation, you’ll hear a brief (1 minute) clip from the very first episode of Margy’s podcast.
