    ‘Play it Safe? Or Double Down’ — Glambition® Radio Episode 203 with Ali Brown

    ‘Play it Safe? Or Double Down’ — Glambition® Radio Episode 203 with Ali Brown

    Take this in... within the last four weeks, you’ve likely gone from being fine, jaunting out and about, and enjoying life as usual... to suddenly having much of your income abruptly cut off, being told to lock yourself inside your home, and sitting alone on a sanitized sofa ordering food from your phone.



    And that’s just your personal life! Witnessing the turbulent times we’ve entered into, it’s evident that nothing will quite be the same again. So critical thinking will be more important—and urgent—than ever. For your business, and your livelihood.



    This includes going against the ‘group think’ we witness around us, in our industries, online, and in the media. Our traditional institutions have failed us, conventional business models are floundering, and there is madness outside your door.



    You now have really no choice but to become a business rule-breaker. For the sake of yourself and your family.



    On this special episode of #GlambitionRadio, we’re going to look at 3 key areas where you should (yes) play it SAFE right now. (You can guess that cashflow is one, and I give several tips on controlling that more than ever.)



    But I’m also going to point out 5 key areas where you should absolutely DOUBLE DOWN— and some of these may surprise you! (One sneak preview: It’s time to continue building your loyalty + trust with clients and colleagues more than ever. I explain how.)



    This time could — in the most silver lining possible way — be the foray into the most iconic work of your life. Have a listen here to understand how: GlambitionRadio.com



    These times are unprecedented.



    And you and I both are here for a reason, having chosen to be here in this lifetime and in these tremendous times of change.



    So put on your big girl pants, do your hair, and keep on keepin’ on. But don’t miss this episode!

    Lesley Jane Seymour of CoveyClub — Glambition® Radio Episode 202 with Ali Brown

    Lesley Jane Seymour of CoveyClub — Glambition® Radio Episode 202 with Ali Brown

    Sometimes it pays to be a misfit. And for this former editor-in-chief of ‘More’ magazine, being ‘different’ is exactly what led to multiple personal and professional reinventions… each more enriching than the last. And while confronting the realities of not fitting in—with data, dollars, and social cues from strangers to prove it—can lead to a few twists and turns, these are also the circumstances that lead to immense growth and creativity.



    CoveyClub Founder Lesley Jane Seymour is a renowned media entrepreneur and one of the publishing industry’s most respected leaders. And on today’s #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear how she is leading the charge for professional women to make grand comebacks and reinvent our careers, well into our 40s, 50s, and beyond.



    Before the tragic demise of ‘More’, Lesley began proactively creating her own reinvention plan… something she encourages women everywhere to think about before they’re forced to react to unexpected change. Today’s professional women are the first generation to face longer careers along with major industry disruptions, while also having more resources available to make their ambitions come true than ever before.



    On this episode, you’ll hear:



    Why not fitting in can be a blessing in disguise — and how to channel rejection into reinvention

    How Lesley embraced a cross-country move as a chance to ditch her old identity (have you ever felt a physical location holding you back from your next evolution?)

    The social impact of magazines that isn’t often spoken about — and how Lesley used media as a platform for women’s advocacy (she was the first to publish a picture of what!?)

    The ‘snapshot’ memory with two First Ladies that Lesley will never forget — and how that moment marked a turning point in her career

    How the downfall of ‘More’ magazine created a loyal, digital following of women around the world — the exact women who convinced Lesley to create her next big media opportunity



    I have a professional girl-crush on Lesley and I think you’ll feel the same after listening to this episode!

    Sunny Lenarduzzi, YouTube Marketing Maverick — Glambition® Radio Episode 201 with Ali Brown

    Sunny Lenarduzzi, YouTube Marketing Maverick — Glambition® Radio Episode 201 with Ali Brown

    How do you unintentionally grow a YouTube marketing channel with zero subscribers to a multi-7-figure business? The answer might surprise you. Coming to you live from her studio apartment—with low-tech equipment and a sharp eye for opportunity—today’s Glambition Radio guest reveals the counter-intuitive qualities that shot her to the peak of video marketing… and established her as a bona fide social media expert.







    On #GlambitionRadio, you’ll also hear the terrifying turning point which is, unfortunately, all too common among women entrepreneurs at the 7+8-figure levels—and how Sunny reoriented her ‘push’ and ‘drive’ mentality to allow for more sustainable professional acceleration and growth.



    Touted as a “marketing master” by Entrepreneur, Sunny has almost a decade of experience creating thriving brand strategies using social media and video marketing. Her YouTube channel has an audience of nearly 400,000. She’s been named by Forbes as one of the ‘20 Must Watch Channels That Will Change Your Business’, Entrepreneur named her as one of the ‘Top 10 Channels Every Entrepreneur Should Follow’, and she’s spoken internationally from NATO’s Headquarters in Brussels to Creative Live in San Francisco.



    On this episode, you’ll hear:



    Why Sunny is adamantly against ‘early adoption’ in social media—and her one online strategy that continues to generate business growth and establish industry expertise

    Sunny’s biggest competitive advantage to becoming a multiple 7-figure business owner (it’s accessible to everyone…)

    Why balance is bullsh*t and how to approach priorities realistically—especially for women at the $1M+ levels (sorry, Arianna, sometimes 8 hours isn’t going to happen…)

    The six ‘metrics that matter’ to dominate—or revive—your YouTube channel’s position and visibility



    And while we get meaty with the ins-and-outs of hacking algorithms, we also touch on everyone’s favorite topic… love!

    Amy Jo Martin, Renegade Entrepreneur — Glambition® Radio Episode 200 with Ali Brown

    Amy Jo Martin, Renegade Entrepreneur — Glambition® Radio Episode 200 with Ali Brown

    When do you decide to shut down a ‘good thing’? This woman can tell you. From a childhood in a Wyoming trailer park to being declared the third most powerful woman on Twitter by Forbes—innovation advocate, author, and podcast host Amy Jo Martin demonstrates that renegades really do write the rules. And break them.



    On today’s Glambition Radio, Amy Jo shares how she built her first company after getting her start with the NBA’s Phoenix Suns during the wild west days of social media when there were no rules or regulations in place—and how, after a whirlwind of rapid business growth and working with some of the world’s most well-known brands, she realized that her success came at too high a price—and made the difficult decision to shut everything down.



    On #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear how Amy Jo prepared her team and clients for some of the toughest conversations and transitions the company ever had, and how she personally overcame the self-built ‘dark road’ of success to ultimately find her new meaning of happiness and professional fulfillment.



    Amy Jo is the author of the New York Times best-selling book ‘Renegades Write the Rules’ and host of the ‘Why Not Now?’ Podcast, where she shares her Renegade Mentality philosophy, tools, and life lessons with audiences across the world.



    On this episode, you’ll hear:



    How Amy Jo taught Shaq how to Tweet and launched the #RandomActsOfShaqness campaign… in total secret!

    When Amy Jo forgot her own name during a life-changing coffee break—and realized the true cost of stress + success

    The dramatic pendulum swings that forced Amy Jo to recognize (and finally pursue) feelings of alignment—and the surprising new lifestyle value she discovered along the way (we could all use more of this…)

    How embracing a ‘knowledge edge’ during a time of industry uncertainty pushed Amy Jo’s first business into rapid growth (here’s a secret… you don’t need to have everything figured out)



    You’ll also hear the Australian ‘imports’ we share in common… ;)

    Reshma Saujani, Founder of Girls Who Code — Glambition® Radio Episode 199 with Ali Brown

    Reshma Saujani, Founder of Girls Who Code — Glambition® Radio Episode 199 with Ali Brown

    Failure. It’s an ‘f’ word that strikes panic into even the most capable and accomplished of women… but what if we could transform our fear of failure into our greatest inspiration to play, experiment, and try things on? After a devastating loss in her run for U.S. Congress, today’s Glambition Radio guest did just that—and founded an organization that is now building the largest pipeline of future female engineers in the United States.



    Reshma Saujani is the Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, the international nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a computer programmer looks like and does.



    On #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear how Reshma left her career as a corporate attorney and surged onto the political scene as the first Indian American woman to run for U.S. Congress—when, during the race, she visited local schools and saw the gender gap in computing classes firsthand. With her passion for women, girls and those less fortunate fully activated, Reshma began Girls Who Code as an experiment… with absolutely zero relevant coding or technology experience.



    To date, Girls Who Code has directly served 185,000 girls across the country and indirectly impacted over 100,000,000 — 50% of whom are from historically underrepresented groups. Reshma has continued her advocacy for girls and is the author of the international bestseller Brave, Not Perfect and the New York Times bestseller Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World. She is the host of the award-winning podcast Brave, Not Perfect.



    On this episode, you’ll hear:



    Why—as the daughter of immigrant parents—Reshma was compelled to add impressive academic and professional notches to her belt (do you relate to happiness in the same way?)

    How $50 and free pizza helped fuel Reshma’s pilot business—and why it’s OK to start small

    The not-so-subtle gender conditioning that has BIG impact on women’s careers—and their approach to professional experimentation

    The freedom in deliberately seeking imperfection—and how micro-doses of failure will strengthen your confidence (it sounds counterintuitive but it’s true!)

    Why shifting decision making from a place of fear to inspiration will have unforeseen positive effects on your business and life

    Whitney Johnson, Innovation and Disruption Theorist — Glambition® Radio Episode 198 with Ali Brown

    Whitney Johnson, Innovation and Disruption Theorist — Glambition® Radio Episode 198 with Ali Brown

    While it’s hard to believe, today’s guest—innovation and disruption theorist Whitney Johnson (the woman lecturing at Harvard Business School, exemplifying the Wall Street ‘financial dream’, and earning the highest honors for organizational thought leadership all while wearing great suits)—has also experienced her fair share of ‘vague notions’ about her future’s direction, as you’ll hear on this #GlambitionRadio. And that’s exactly what makes her incredibly… credible.



    She’s one of the 50 leading business thinkers in the world (Thinkers50), an expert on helping high-growth organizations develop high-growth individuals, an award-winning author, world-class keynote speaker, frequent lecturer for Harvard Business School's Corporate Learning, and an executive coach and advisor to CEOs. She co-founded the Disruptive Innovation Fund with Harvard's Clayton M. Christensen and led an $8 million seed round for Korea’s Coupang—currently valued at $9+ billion.



    Whitney’s professional accomplishments are impressive—and so is her commitment to leaping into the unknown and disrupting herself. From her humble professional beginning as a Wall Street secretary with a music major to a globally recognized business leader, Whitney vanquishes the notion that her success has anything to do with luck… and reminds us that neither does ours.



    On this episode of Glambition Radio, you’ll hear:



    How Whitney turned sexist (but motivational) remarks during her first Wall Street job into a lifelong pursuit of personal disruption—and how you can do the same

    The one book that catapulted her into an astonishing professional partnership (if this isn’t synchronicity in action, I don’t know what is!)

    Her essential framework for both leaders and employees to recognize and embrace their paths of growth (this paradigm will shift everything…)

    Why renouncing your ‘shrinking violet’ identity is the key to indisputable leadership



    Along with enlightening conversation, this episode provides several resources to help you and your team reach your highest performance potentials. I’m even reading one myself!
