The Booktruck Chronicles

Chapter 21: A Storytelling Beekeeper - Janelle Dudzic

June 1, 2020

Today's episode is a mixture of silly and motivational.

Last week, I introduced you to the segment of the podcast I am calling the Reader Rapid-Fire 30. 30 questions about your fave books, details about your reading life and a sneak peek into the fabulousness of people I meet on my booktruck journey. Today I am sharing the raw, unedited piece that my daughters and I recorded about MY Rapid-Fire 30. There are some giggles, some accents and maybe one or two whoops moments. I hope you enjoy it!

The motivational part is entirely due to my Guest, Janelle Dudzic, a local entrepreneur, photographer, urban beekeeper and education enthusiast. Her talent for visual storytelling is evident if you check out her wedding photographs online, and we talk about how her desire for photography was born and how she is incorporating it into her other shared interests. Janelle is proof that you can be good at so many things, so you don't have to only do one thing. She wears many creative hats and at such a young age, she inspires others to chase their dreams and be constantly striving to learn more along the way. I also admire how honest Janelle is about her reading life and yes, even admitting that Harry Potter is used to put her to sleep at night... enjoy our convo!
