Listen in on how a writer and brand strategist figured out her unique intersection of skills, interests, and experiences….and then made a career out of it. In a sane, anti-hustling way- the way we like it.
Susannah Baillin joins us on today’s show to talk about how resistance has shown up at every turn in her career- and the specific tools and strategies she uses to get over it and move on, every single time
We're focusing on the topic and idea of resistance this month. And I suspect we’ll return to it again and again over the coming years. Because as far as I can tell, it never goes away completely, and can resurface in sneaky ways- to the point that you might not even realize you’re resisting something!
This week, we’re wrapping up our August theme around Doing Work Around Something You Love. As with a lot of the stories we tell on the show, she’s in the thick of figuring out how to merge her love of travel and new experiences with a business model that satisfies her – and pays the bills.
We rarely talk about the early stages of a new career or side project. How do people get started? What’s it REALLY like as you go through it? It’s sometimes rainbows and unicorns, but not all the time. I’m taking you through MY four stages of a new career right here, right now.
This week on Episode 014: Building Your Side Hustle With Focus and Sanity, we’re talking with Mari DiChiara, Founder of Mari on the Map, a different kind of travel experiences and advice blog. I’ll let her tell you more, but the big thing that makes me go back to the site almost weekly is that she really succeeds in making sure people with limited vacation time and dollars look back on the trip with really great memories and know that all of the travel experiences they had were totally...
Alex Harper, CEO of Women of Culture, a women’s arts organization in NYC, discusses creating what she’s passionate about + juggling a full-time graphic design job. Our Day In the Life series continues with Alex’s rundown of what it’s like to be a graphic designer, too.
Want to get your financial house in order so that it can support your career goals? Amanda Holden, Founder of Invested Development and the Dumpster Dog blog gives us her 8 tips to do this, as well as how she saved $30k, took a year off, traveled and started her business.
SO…..you wanna be a digital nomad, butttttttt:
I could keep listing all the things that could possibly come up when you contemplate actually going for something that’s been your dream for awhile now, but I think you’re intimately aware of them all.
INSTEAD, let’s do two things:
Erin Greenawaldthe Muse,
Sike. It didn’t happen like that at all, and Erin is giving us the real skinny on how she realized she wanted to do this, how she pushed through resistance to...
There’s something for everyone in this episode, and I’m so excited to be able to share it with you.
We have Garvey Chui, Founder of the Verb Group, among many other things that you’ll learn about in this episode, on the show this week to talk about two things:
The Career Passport is about NOT having your dream job, and Garvey is an excellent example to underpin how important I think this crucial idea is.
Raise your (virtual) hand if any of the following has happened in the last week:
And grab a listen to this episode on mindfulness and boundaries for additional resources on this
I think most of us, myself included, have our virtual hands in the air right about now. The truth of the matter is that it’s EASY to have any of those scenarios happen, but before you spiral into the depths of despair over that, it’s also way easier than you think to stop that vicious cycle in its...
The day ran me, rather than the other way around.
This is how I used to live my life, when I’d tear into work like a bat out of hell and without stopping to take a breath or have a sense of presence, I’d plunge straight into the dozens of emails I’d invariably gotten since 9pm the previous night. Then I’d work (in a super stressed out way, thinking everything was urgent) straight through til the second I had to leave, when I’d race to the next thing.
Years later, I’m still dealing with...
This week we’re talking to Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, founder of the Fiscal Femme and financial wellness and money coach. I know I say this a lot, but this was such a fun one to record for so many reasons. In addition to her general awesomeness surrounding the work she does with clients, students and corporate wellness programs, she’s on the air today to help any of us in the following situations:
If any of the above made you gasp in agreement, tune into episode 007:...
What happens when you cross someone who knows what they want with not having any clue how to actually get there? Well, you get Lynze Ballay, Founder of She Works Abroad and AVP at Sprinklr. After she got her first taste of travel as a college student, she was hooked and knew that travel was a non-negotiable she’d carry through the rest of her life. But just being happy with the 2-3 weeks of vacation that a large number of American companies give to employees was not in the cards for...
What if I told you that there is one thing that we all have access to – every single one of us- that can help us take the workday and own it, rather than leave the day haggard, exhausted and with a giant headache? Something that will put a little pep in our step, and over time, make even the stickiest work situations float on by? And for those of us in non ideal work environments (toxic, boring or not aligned with what we want to be doing), something that helps us not just quit and run out...
A couple weeks ago we talked about overcoming the (common) feeling of resistance when it comes to networking. Podcast 002 Sometimes we can be hesitant to network because we feel like we’re wading into a sea of events where there are 200 people in a sweat conference hall pressing their business card into our hands, used car salesman/woman style.
But it don’t gotta be like that, my friend.
I invite you to enter the world of “Finding your Tribe”, i.e. finding networking groups...
