Welcome to the “Bold Moves: How Did You Know?” podcast.
Hello to the naturally curious and to you who wants to learn more about people, their inner workings, their trials and tribulations, and their bold moves because you know that through their stories you’ll be inspired to pursue YOUR greatest achievements.
I’m Kristen Rocco and the host of this podcast as well as the founder of a content consulting business (KristenRocco.com) and a love storytelling company called Love Notery (lovenotery.com).

I started this podcast to inspire you to make bold moves. I have a hypothesis that people feel a deeper sense of life fulfillment and satisfaction when they make bold moves.

In these podcast episodes, you’ll hear bold move stories that propelled my guests from curiosity to action. And understand that doing that thing you’ve wanted to do isn’t more than making a decision and being courageous. I think there’s a gap in the way these stories are being told today. There are many stories about what someone is doing and why they’re doing it but rarely focus on the how.

That’s when my podcast name came to me. "Bold Moves: How Did You Know?"

How did you know you wanted to start a business? Advocate for change? Pursue your dream? Beneath it all is the answer to the question: How did you know you could do it?

I'll underscore the traits and behaviors it took for these leaders to go from their idea to actually doing it. And together, we’ll see if my hypothesis is right. Does making a bold move help you feel fulfilled and satisfied?

    Do It Your Way with Reformed Good Girl Diana Murphy, CEO of Diana Murphy Coaching

    Do It Your Way with Reformed Good Girl Diana Murphy, CEO of Diana Murphy Coaching

    Thanks for taking the podcast feedback survey to help me create a great show for you! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdgwwN2dxCqdnGSgIhpiZagKGXdBVEWi4vaoYRXrx_O6e83LQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

    After 55 years, Diana broke free from what was traditionally expected of her to honor her desire to create the life she wants. Now, she refers to herself as a “reformed good girl.”

    Life for Diana, now 65, is curated by her and no one else. Diana takes us through how she had to shed her good girl career and her good girl life to make bold moves.

    She’s a firm believer that it’s time to break free from being a good girl or guy. She shares how she did it and what helped her write her own story, instead of living by someone else’s.

    Think it’s too late to make a change? Diana flipped her life upside down at 55 and has never felt better 10 years into her new lifestyle and mindset.

    Tune in to hear her divulge:
    Why you need to embrace your inner knowing to unlock how to make bold moves your wayHow practicing hard things helps you develop self-trust for the bold moves of your lifeWhy a bold move doesn’t mean blowing your life or career up and starting over. Learn how the slightest change can be the bold move you need to design the life you’re craving
    Episode quote I love:
    “I would have it no other way – to be brave enough to leave the marriage, brave enough to start the business and honor this mission and calling. The fulfillment and the happiness I have of holding to my standard, when you think about dating and relationships and, what kind of clients I bring into the practice. I really didn't think it was possible to have what I have right now.”

    A Bold Moves Graduation Speech: What We Wish We Knew About Being Bold Earlier On

    A Bold Moves Graduation Speech: What We Wish We Knew About Being Bold Earlier On

    Graduation season has inspired me to think about all the powerful stories and brilliant advice that my 28 bold moves guests have shared on this podcast.

    I put myself into the shoes of new graduates and imagined what amazing insight I could have learned if I heard all these stories as I was graduating. It's almost like fast-forwarding into the future to ask my 40-year-old self what I could do after graduating to create a career and life I was proud of.

    I realized that through the last question I ask each of my guests, "What do you know about being bold today you wish you knew earlier on?," we've co-created a bold moves graduation speech!

    We're out from the other side of some of our in-the-trenches stories and our hardest moments, and we have advice we wish we could have given to our younger selves about being bold.

    So I put them all together in this special clips-style podcast episode to inspire graduates who are just setting off into their new bold move journeys, as well as those in their early careers who are eager for mentorship, and all of us who need some extra encouragement to be bold as we face new challenges and opportunities.

    **This is the perfect episode to share with new graduates, those early in their careers, or anyone who needs extra encouragement to keep going on their bold moves journey!**

    How Bold People Get Unstuck with Nancy Davis, Certified Coach and Strategist for High Achievers

    How Bold People Get Unstuck with Nancy Davis, Certified Coach and Strategist for High Achievers

    I love interviewing professional coaches because they have a unique view of the challenges people face in life and career, and their advice can be so helpful in looking at problems as opportunities.
    So when I met Nancy Davis, a certified coach and strategist for high achievers, I quickly invited her to join me for a conversation about marching to the beat of your own drum and what to do when you get stuck.
    Nancy shares incredible advice – and her own experiences – about what to do when people try to stick us in a box that just doesn’t feel right. We discuss:
    How knowing your value is critical to both your life and your careerHow success changes as time passesWhy questioning and challenging your assumptions can help you climb out of the (proverbial) boxThe best business advice Nancy has ever received – listen up for this one!Why being rejected isn’t a bad thingMake sure you listen to the very end. Nancy’s answer to “what do you know today about being bold you wish you would have known earlier on” is key to getting unstuck to tap into your next Bold Move. She says, “Get your brain going.”

    How to Become Promotable with Katherine Knight, Chief Legal Officer and Vice President, Human Resources and Corporate Governance at Mitsubishi Motors North America

    How to Become Promotable with Katherine Knight, Chief Legal Officer and Vice President, Human Resources and Corporate Governance at Mitsubishi Motors North America

    Who better to talk about how to position yourself for a promotion than someone who has made it to the C-suite?
    Meet Katherine Knight, Chief Legal Officer and Vice President, Human Resources and Corporate Governance, at Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
    She brings us into her decision-making process as she navigated her career for over 20 years. We discuss Katherine’s early career as a law clerk and trial lawyer, and how she pivoted into corporate law where she became general council before taking on additional areas and responsibilities in HR and corporate governance.
    She did all this by her early 40’s! Mid-life crisis, what? More like mid-life CLICK! Katherine has found her stride – and learned valuable lessons like the upside of a rescinded job offer – and now, she’s sharing her story to empower you to discover what you want out of your career and how to get it.
    She discusses what plagues many people from moving forward in their careers in the era of remote work and how to get back on track with a simple (though not easy) concept.
    Tune in to hear how she advises you to take initiative and get more visible – and much more. We explore questions like:
    Could being comfortable in your role harm your advancement potential?Is a lateral move worth it?What role does authenticity have in your career?What’s the value of your personal brand in the workplace?And bonus, you’ll hear a tip about career growth that I didn’t know was a key part of making a name for yourself until recently.
    You won’t want to miss this episode. Katherine is real, raw, and unfiltered. How many times can you say that when talking to an executive?
    Listen now!
