    Social Anxiety Talks with Mark Metry 🎙️ on Big Kat Lounge Podcast Ep 68

    Social Anxiety Talks with Mark Metry 🎙️ on Big Kat Lounge Podcast Ep 68

    Today's guest has been a Forbes featured TEDx speaker, host of a global top 100 podcast, bestselling author, documentary series cast member, who is helping the world effectively manage social anxiety.

    He takes his personal life and his habits very seriously. People don’t see results in their life because they aren’t consistent.

    The human brain is so interesting because it can normalize anything. When you do the same stuff everyday you feel stuck. Certain habits like meditation teaches our brains how to rewire our brain cells to give us that boosted confidence.

    In 2017 Mark Metry was in a spot in his life where he didn’t know what to do. Some of his biggest realizations came when he was having 1 on 1 honest conversations.

    You look at your goals and you don’t compare yourself to anyone negatively. Comparing yourself to other people can be a great thing if done correctly.

    Some key nuggets that really hit home were the fact that Mark doesn't go on social media before he posts, which helps tremendously as you can go down a rabbit hole if you start scrolling and consuming toxic information. 

    I recently enrolled in Mark's Social Anxiety program and I believe it’s something that we all need in our lives: markmetry.com/program

    This was a great episode where we touched upon mental health, social anxiety, systems, his book & programs, how to build confidence and much more.

    When you smile in the moment, it gives you more control. If you or your company is interested in Mark speaking at any of your events, conferences, please reach out and text him at 508-925-0261.

    To follow Mark Metry’s journey head to his website- markmetry.com or email him at markmetry722@gmail.com.

    Break Mindset Barriers with Bobby Dsouza💥 on BKL Ep 67

    Break Mindset Barriers with Bobby Dsouza💥 on BKL Ep 67

    Today's guest is a person who completely connects to humans authentically. He can forge relationships and build connections right away. He understands the struggles of everyday people and through his conversations, podcast, mastermind classes, interactions you can witness his leadership at hand.

    As speakers we were all used to speaking in person and not virtually. The natural connection can never be replaced. As of this recording he was able to reach over 156 organizations.

    There is a lack of courage, too much fear going around in the world with a lot of stories. We shouldn’t make things worse than it is.

    Whether it’s a health issue, people get scared and stop taking positive action. People build on courage, pause, reflect and take massive action to do the best they can.

    Bobby Dsouza and I touched upon leadership, a hybrid model for when we come back into the office and much more. 

    Small steps will never despise small beginnings. It’s so easy to move to the bed or go to the couch and sleep when working from home. Every action we take has a significant impact for the future.

    One key takeaway from our lounge talk with Bobby was the importance of having a trusted guide or mentor at an early age. The type of people you have in your life is crucial. You have to surround yourself with the right people and be intentional.

    Bobby Dsouza fell a lot of times and made a lot of mistakes which can be found further in his Fallen to Rise book on Amazon.

    Neeraja Ganesh is a consultant, coach, mother, who is focused in the gender diversity space where she heads the JobforHer Foundation. She was awarded at a TEDEX Women's event for her 25yrs of achievements in the corporate world.

    Learning never stops and we have so much access these days with Coursera, online portals, podcasts and much more. We are truly spoiled for choice as there are plenty of options for us to check, it's just being intentional with the information we consume.

    We may have multiple tabs open on our laptops & a handful of devices, so we aren’t able to focus and our priorities aren’t listed down. 

    Priorities are different than a bucket list. We have to ensure to make a refined priority list to build into our calendars and implement a routine.

    Neeraja shared with us life, and leadership lessons for the entire Big Kat Lounge community to reflect upon. 

    This was a fun episode and everyone needs to follow her journey, as she continues to build communities towards bridging the gender gap for all in India and the world.
