    Why Being More Productive Won't Solve Your Problems - EP086

    Many of my coaching clients come to me wanting to be more productive because they aren't meeting some goal or expectation they've set for themselves. 
     
    You can do a Google search and find hundreds of productivity hacks.
     
    But is doing more really the answer?

    Not always! 
     
    So, how can you determine the productivity issues you're really trying to solve?
     
    On this episode of Career Confessions, I'll walk you through some reasons we seek the answers to more success in all the wrong places. Then I guide you through some insight into how to dig deeper to determine what productivity really means to and for you. 
     
    Listen in as I share how saying NO can help you find the time you dream of for your most critical non-negotiables. Plus, I share a fun exercise you can do to pull back from some of the forces pulling you in all different directions and find the center of YOUR vision for success.
     
    Did you know that when you and I work together on your coaching plan, we not only create a performance routine that works for you while we work together, but we also create a 6-month go-forward plan for when our time together ends?

    3 Ways to Sidestep Career Blocking Branding Moves - EP085

    3 Ways to Sidestep Career Blocking Branding Moves - EP085

    What projects do you want to be known for?
    Do you want to be known as a leader or the go-to name for your dream project?

    Are you sure about what you’re projecting when it comes to your personal brand?


    It can be challenging to stay focused on who we are, so we project the right things in our personal brand while working on projects, paying bills, and raising our families. 
     
    But if you don't take charge of evaluating and solidifying your brand, who will? 
     
    And if you're not taking the time to check in on your personal brand, it can lead to a significant gap in how others perceive you and how you see yourself as a professional. 
     
    So how can you evolve your brand to ensure it aligns with where you want to go next?
     
    On this episode of Career Confessions, I'm sharing two topics that have recently been a recurring theme in my coaching practice. I'm also sharing some personal insight into how something I visualized for over a year came to be and how I intentionally released my emotions about the end of one big project before beginning a new one.
     
    I'll walk you through some insider information I shared with my group coaching clients and some advice I gave a private client about why you must advocate for yourself in your career and how you can do so in a way that feels organic to you.
     
    Listen in as I share the 3 things you must continually evaluate and reevaluate for limiting factors in your brand. Plus, I offer some homework for my listeners to help you make sure your brand aligns with where you want to go next. 
     
    I have one private coaching spot open, and I'd love to take you to the finish line! But the only way to work with me is to apply—so fill out the form NOW!



    Key Takeaways 

    Why it’s vital to release emotional baggage to keep it from coming along on your career journey
    2 reasons why it’s so hard to advocate for yourself at work
    How to share your wins so it doesn’t feel like bragging
    Why flexing your problem-solving nature is not just your win, but a victory for the whole team
    What things to look at when auditing your brand to be sure it aligns with your goals 
    How taking the time to get honest about where you are gives you the clarity to toward the right opportunities

    Do You Have the Millionaire Mindset? - EP084

    Do you have the millionaire mindset?
     
    I am not talking about what you have in your bank account, although I believe that money will be a side-effect. 
     
    I'm talking about developing the focus to chase the version of yourself you see in your mind's eye. 
     
    It's hard to step into the unknown and make the changes required to get you where you want to be—but it's always worth it. 
     
    So how can you get to what is waiting out there for you?
     
    On this episode of Career Confessions, I'm sharing what having a millionaire mindset really means. I share an update about where I was last year‌, where I am now in my entrepreneurial journey, and what it took to build a second business in just a year. 
     
    Listen in as I share insight into how to audit your life, so you can begin stepping away from the habits and relationships that are getting in the way of the things you truly want. 
     
    I'll walk you through how I re-prioritize my life‌ based on impact and how you can do the same with the things on your own to-do list. 
     
    There's a version of yourself out there that I know you can visually see, to get there you need to adopt a millionaire mindset. 
     
    Key Takeaways  
     
    Why you must let go of the things that no longer serve you to move the needle
    How to surround yourself with the people that will inspire your greatness
    How re-prioritizing based on impact keeps me in a healthy, millionaire mindset 
    Why it's important to build a brand within your personal boundaries
    How setting unrealistic goals can help you move past your fear of failure
    Why opening yourself up to more no’s increases your odds of success. 
    Why ditching the rule book and forging your own path is the key to more success
    Why you have to say no to the life you have to achieve the life you want

    The Key Question To Ask Yourself When at a Career Crossroads - EP081

    The Key Question To Ask Yourself When at a Career Crossroads - EP081

    Do you feel like you are being pushed to decide what's next in your career?
     
    Is time to change directions from the career path you thought you were set on?
     
    If you answered yes to either of those questions, you might be at a career crossroads. 
     
    So, what do you do when what you've been doing is no longer working for you, and you need to make a new plan? 
     
    Often, when we reach a certain level in our career trajectory, we find ourselves with more career choices and options than we dreamed possible. As the steps and paths, you could take increase, so do feelings of overwhelm and analysis paralysis.
     
    When we aren't sure what the next step looks like, it can bring forth a lot of insecurity. But there are some things you can do to help alleviate that.  
     
    On this episode of Career Confessions, I explain why at times of career uncertainty it's important to take a step back before taking your next step. I'll share some tips on how to turn your focus inward to find the common denominator in the options out in front of you so you can move further into your lane of brilliance.
     
    Listen in to discover the 1 key question you need to ask yourself when you are at a career crossroads. I offer insight into how to stop playing in the false stretch zone and get comfortable with the unknown so you can step out of Zombie mode, reignite your passion for what you do, and start challenging yourself again. 
     
    Are you ready to discover your personal brand in a whole new way so you can share it so it sticks with the right stakeholders? If so, fill out my questionnaire for private coaching, and let's talk about how I can help you raise the bar and reach your next level faster. 



    Key Takeaways  
    How to use your career history to discover the common denominator within the options in front of you
    The biggest drawback of the 'false stretch zone'
    How to tap into the small insights that make up your career foundation
    Why it's okay to discard your long-term plan and adopt your perfect plan for right now
    Why turning down the noise and focusing inward is the secret to identifying your key drivers
    Where to look to discover the critical clues that will help you determine your next steps
    The number 1 question to ask yourself when you are at a career crossroads

@rosealldaynatalie

Merriemichelle ,

Great Coaching!

I finally started to change my career after 15 years in one company. I really enjoyed learning how someone actually looks at my profile and how to market myself. I definitely need more help and understanding.

@empoweredimage ,

Love this! From one career coach to another, thank you!

I’m a career coach at one of the top business schools in the country! I’m always looking for new material to help my international students and this episode resonates loudly with me!

Would love to connect, check out my insta handle, @empoweredimage, this is a collection of meandering thoughts and feelings and it’s not my best “work” in the world. It’s really jiust a collection of musings, a diary mostly. If you want my LinkedIn, that’s a better version of me!

Either way, thanks for being here! Muah! 😘
