Ep. 47 | Amanda Bauer Frisch - Participation Awards

April 24, 2024

After losing her husband suddenly at 30 years old with a 1-year-old son and pregnant, Amanda Bauer Frisch has navigated life with incredible grace.

So, what is a Participation Trophy? Amanda emphasizes that we need to redefine what a participation trophy really is. First place isn’t the same as showing up, but we still need to recognize that as a society, most people are dealing with silent battles that we don’t see. It’s important to acknowledge and applaud their participation.

“When I lost my husband, I needed people to tell me to keep going and to keep trying.”
