Listen: Mimi Hayes, Greg Cleaness, Twitter discussed on Tiny Leaps, Big Changes
"In this episode, I sit down with Mimi Hayes to talk about brain bleeds, book publishing, and what it's like to be a comedian in New York City get excited because this is tiny leaps, big changes. Welcome to another episode of tiny leaves big changes, whereas share simple strategies you can use to get more out of your life. My name is Greg clueless. And in this episode I'm sitting down with how should I discover one of the most unique individuals of had the pleasure of speaking to her name is Mimi Hayes, and she first came into my world because she was a listener of this show as she moved from Mimi where you from Denver Colorado, from Denver to New York City with absolutely no opportunities lined up, which is probably one of the most insane nineteen eighties tight moves I've ever heard of. And since then she's just absolutely created an incredible incredible platform for herself and an accomplished. One of her biggest goals which is to get a book published something that she came here with about this incredible. Story off. Being put in a very life threatening situation. So I'm gonna. Let me expand on that in this conversation, but I want you guys listening to this to really think about this conversation as where you could be when Mimi I reached out to me, she had just moved here. She had no job lined up. The book was even like it. She had no clue how that was going to happen or if it was going to happen. And since then in the last year, almost two years, she's really created something for herself. So no matter where you are starting from, if you have no idea what you're doing or how you're gonna get their dismember, that by taking those tiny leads, you can make something happen. And then from that something you can turn it into something else. So Mimi, thank you so much for being here. Yeah, thank you for having me. Absolutely. So let's let's start with what I think is potentially the most interesting question. And obviously the most fascinating thing about you. You Bill. Road in tire book around it. What? What happened? What what happened to you? Why were you in the hospital? Why did you have to relearn how to to write in function and like tell us what? What went down? Yeah. So. It was just one of those really weird things where I was at this point in my life where a lot of things changing. I started teaching. I was getting into my student teaching career in Colorado and kind of been through a lot since graduating college. But all the sudden things where Ray with my health, I was kinda dizzy. I was having these like weird kind of pressure headaches out of nowhere. And pretty soon we found out what was happening after several misdiagnoses and I had a brain hemorrhage. So that was crazy because I didn't know that like your brain could do that kind of thing. I didn't know that that was like what happened to young people, but it can. So yeah, just add some some additional context for anyone who maybe doesn't exactly know what a brain hemorrhage is like, what's going on in the brain with? Yes. So for me. When I was growing as a as a baby, they think what happened was a tiny clump of cells just kind of like clumped just contact there that my brain, it wasn't doing any harm. It was just kind of how I developed and then for whatever reason, stress is my was. Why think happened that structure just like filled up with blood just randomly. So I guess it's it was for me, it was kind of like a slow motion stroke. So if you know about strokes, there of blood kind of like gets into the brain and damages a lot of your brain. So for me that got kind of kept in that little area. So I was really lucky in that sense because that's not the case for a lot of people. So pretty scary."
