    The Transformative Power of Breaking Routine, Intentional Self-Discipline and Meditation with Sonja Williams

    The Transformative Power of Breaking Routine, Intentional Self-Discipline and Meditation with Sonja Williams

    How does your ego show up in your life and how does it affect the professional and relational decisions you make? This week, Violetta speaks with Sonja Williams, employee turned entrepreneur with a life-first approach to business, about the daily practices and rituals that have helped her redefine what's truly important to her and awaken the courage to pivot her career by following her intuition and betting on herself.
     
    Sonja shares her experience with meditation before it was a widely known and accepted practice, Tony Robbins events, gratitude, her annual practice of intentional self-discipline and the mindset that helped her to break free from expectations and societal labels and redefine success for herself and for her family (even when most people didn’t understand it at first).
     
    We also unpack:
    What qualities to look for in a life partner so that you can grow together with a shared life vision instead of growing apart
    How to build real courage and confidence that allows you to change your mind, try new things and reinvent yourself
    The role self-reflection and meditation plays in understanding your personal beliefs and values and the impact they have on your decisions, self-perception and emotional state
    The power of creating a supportive circle and network around you and the truth of what this looks like
    What self-trust actually looks and feels like and how to truly cultivate an unshakeable self-trust and confidence within yourself that can't be taken away from you when external circumstances change…. Be it money, relationship status, how you look

    Slow Down and THRIVE! With Kim Stark

    Slow Down and THRIVE! With Kim Stark

    What does success look like to you? As today's guest, Kim Stark, would argue, perhaps it's time to redefine our version of success. Kim, an experienced entrepreneur, business coach, and podcaster, made the inspiring journey from a high-stress film career to establishing her own business. It wasn't just about hustling, but learning to prioritize her well-being, embrace rest, and align her values with her work. Our conversation peels back the layers of this journey, sharing insights that everyone can apply, whether you’re in the entrepreneurial world, striving in your career or navigating the challenges of everyday life.
     
    We unpack:
    Kim’s story: pivoting from hustling in her career, then starting and selling her own business to consciously noticing and deciding that in order for work and life to feel and be sustainable, she needs to learn to do it differently
    Managing stress and how to notice you’re experiencing stress in your mind and body
    Overcoming fears and putting yourself ‘out there’ to follow through on your desires and dreams
    How to navigate the constant push-pull between ego and intuition
     Kim’s ersonal strategies on balancing the drive to achieve with the need to rest and recharge
     
    Success isn't just about relentless drive, but also about nurturing our mind, body, and spirit.
     
    Tune in, and let's redefine success together.

    Conquering Procrastination: Mindset, Identity and Perfectionism with Dr. Christine Li the Procrastination Coach

    Conquering Procrastination: Mindset, Identity and Perfectionism with Dr. Christine Li the Procrastination Coach

    Have you ever found yourself stuck in the cycle of procrastination and perfectionism, wondering if there's a way out? In today’s episode, guest Dr. Christine Li, a renowned clinical psychologist and procrastination coach and host Violetta unpack the nuances of procrastination and how you overcome and thrive. Dr. Li takes us through her unique coaching process that combines mindset, time, and emotion management to help combat underperformance, and shares her journey of the past decade helping people break free from procrastination's grip.
     
    We plunge into our shared human experience of procrastination, probing its deep-rooted connections with identity, ambition, and perfectionism. Together, we examine the paradox of how ambition and procrastination can coexist, and the critical role of self-reflection and self-care in our personal and professional journeys. Furthermore, we delve into the often intertwined nature of procrastination and perfectionism, acknowledging that while it can hinder us, it can also be harnessed as a powerful motivator to improve and grow.
     
    In this thoughtful discussion, Dr. Li emphasizes the power of mindset and highlights strategies for compartmentalizing focus and avoiding overwhelm. We also explore the importance of rest and self-forgiveness in the face of guilt often associated with procrastination. To wrap up, we focus on taking mindful action to create lasting change and inspire others through our own experiences of overcoming procrastination and perfectionism.

    Violetta Takes the Stage! Exploring Self-Connection as a Tool for Resilience in Work and Life

    Violetta Takes the Stage! Exploring Self-Connection as a Tool for Resilience in Work and Life

    After countless requests, I’ve finally recorded the talk I gave at a women’s event some time ago. I’ve had to make some adaptations because there were visuals I used alongside the talk. Sit back and prepare yourself to reflect and receive as I share what happens when we morph into the leader and type of person we think we need to be to succeed in our field of work.
     
    I worked as a leader, educator and guide in a male-dominated industry for almost 10 years, the place I both lost and found myself simultaneously.
     
    Being authentic and breaking societal norms and familial expectations isn’t as easy as it sounds. Listen in and hear about some of the real blocks that get in the way of true, aligned success and wellbeing, especially as ambitious female leaders.
     
    Thank you for being here and joining me on a mission to close the gender gap from the inside out! By tuning into this episode, you’re take massive action towards creating a successful life that is an authentic expression of you all the while impacting generational change.
     
    THANK YOU.

    And if you’d like to invite me to speak at your organization or next event, email, violetta@expandandimpact.com

    Regulate Over Hustle Mentorship for Female Leaders, 9-5 Professionals and Business Owners is now OPEN and accepting applications.
     
    ROH Mentorship is a six month experience for six women only who are ready to learn how to release the struggle and the need to push ahead and replace it with more spaciousness and internal calm and peace. This is for the woman who is ready to break generational patterns of survival and pave way to more sustainable ways of success, growth and healing, free from anxiety, free from overwhelm, free from inner tension and free from the emotional roller coaster of success and achievement, and squeezing everything into your life and your schedule to make it worthwhile, so you don't miss out on anything. If you're ready to transform your leadership and be in an intentional space with other women who want to change the narrative that success and relationships are supposed to feel hard, if you want to experience more depth and more lasting states of joy, presence, connection, power, courage, confidence, steadiness, grounding, and you want those qualities to be the space from which you make decisions, from which you show up in your relationships, in your life and in your leadership, then I invite you to apply for one of the six spots in Regulate Over Hustle. If you are interested in learning more or you're ready to jump right in and apply right away, you can either DM me Regulate Over Hustle @expand_and_impact or apply directly, here: https://www.expandandimpact.com/regulateoverhustle
     
    In this episode, Violetta talks about what's possible beyond the influences of fear, insecurity, and doubt and how our self-perception impacts how fully awake we are to life and what we believe is possible for our individual successes and collective change.
     
    Violetta shares her own experiences of working around the world in developing world countries where she had to let go of western luxuries and modern comforts and shift who she thought she was and what she thought she needed to be happy and content in life. She shares how she began to gain understanding and mastery over herself and how her identity held the power to free her from expectation and struggle ultimately leading her to cultivate the skills to experience inner peace, joy and internal spaciousness no matter where she was, what changed in her life and how she faced disappointments and failure.
     
    Tune in and learn how to identify subtle cues of fear and survival based thinking within yourself and cultivate conscious, mindful and self-aware leadership. Distinguish between temporary fixes and meaningful growth. You’ll learn strategies to rewire your nervous systems for joy, pleasure, and satisfaction. By the end of the conversation, we hope you feel inspired to create space and see life and humanity with fresh eyes.
