    How to Raise Strong Girls and Be a Strong Woman in the Process with Carmelita Tiu

    How to Raise Strong Girls and Be a Strong Woman in the Process with Carmelita Tiu

    Over the course of my life, I have been so lucky to have incredibly strong women as examples for my life.

    If you have read my book Confident You, Simple Habits to live the life you have imagined, you have learned a lot about these influential women.

    This podcast and my new Radio show have also allowed me to meet incredible women I love and admire.

    Carmelita Tiu and I first recorded for the radio show, and I knew our conversation needed to also live here on this podcast.

    Service, creativity, relationships, and human potential inspire Carmelita (Cat) Tiu as an attorney, coach, podcaster, philanthropist, parent & partner. 

    After receiving her art and law degree, she worked for several years as an attorney at Harpo Productions, creator of The Oprah Winfrey Show and several OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network programs then pivoted to the design and advertising world.

    She's been an adjunct professor at DePaul University and Columbia College Chicago and serves on the boards of various cultural and community service organizations.   

    As a curious and committed mom to two daughters, Cat launched the podcast "Know Them, Be Them, Raise Them," a show that helps mindful moms be and raise strong women. So they can show up powerfully and intentionally for themselves and their daughters.

    She also helps high-achieving moms live authentically and parent intentionally so they can move confidently towards meaningful goals, find more fulfillment in their lives, and have faith in the legacy they are creating. 

    As a business and life strategy coach, I want to make sure we, as women, find the best way to support each other and create the kind of tomorrow our girls today can grow up into with confidence.

    The more work we do for ourselves to grow and become stronger and better, the more they will see what is possible and become that as well.

    How giving back can increase your happiness and success (Giving Tuesday Episode) with Eric Harrison

    How giving back can increase your happiness and success (Giving Tuesday Episode) with Eric Harrison

    For as long as I can remember, giving back has been a part of what is important to me.

    Throughout my life, I have volunteered many hours to help in my community with organizations that are doing phenomenal work.

    The truth is that I volunteer, not because I am a good person. I do it for very selfish reasons. Giving back reminds me how blessed I am and makes me feel good.

    When I have been too focused on myself and not giving to others, I begin to focus on my empty cup and a life lacking the shine we sometimes feel it should have. In other words, I am living in the gap of life instead of the gain.

    You don't have to look far to find someone who needs a friend, advice, or shelter.

    Whether you're donating money or time, giving promotes happiness, increases our connection to others, and strengthens empathy. Wealth is a concept that, for me, starts inside of us. Being empathetic and sharing our blessings can help us feel good and increase our mental well-being.

    As entrepreneurs, we tend to prioritize long-term goals. We also want to impact the world through our work alone. Giving back can remind us that what we are doing is also impacting outside our inner circle and keeping us on track to our goals. However, chances are good that we'd never have the world-changing impact I hoped for.

    In today's episode, I interview Eric Harrison, the United Way of Central and Eastern Connecticut's new President and CEO.

    Eric is an experienced Chief Executive Officer with a demonstrated history of working in the non-profit organization management industry. Skilled in Nonprofit Organizations, Budgeting, Event Management, Volunteer Management, and Public Speaking. Strong business development professional with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) focused in Business Administration and Management, General from the Minnesota School of Business.

    I had a lot of fun getting to know him and learning more about what drives him to lead an organization like the United Way.

    I am so happy that we have an incredible visionary committed to helping create more robust, more prosperous communities.

    How to Become a Changemaker in the World with Laura Hartley

    How to Become a Changemaker in the World with Laura Hartley

    As changemakers, we need to not just navigate the world as it is, but the world as it could be.
    This isn’t easy though when we’re filled with self-doubt or shame, crippled by perfectionism or distrusting of power.  It’s hard to make change when we’re exhausted with burnout, stressed in overwork or frozen with indecision.
    You could read another book, get another degree, join another course.
    Or you could choose to work one-on-one to get free.
    To detox from culture so you can listen to your inner knowing and navigate to a more just, regenerative and equitable world.
    Because changemaking requires inner work. 
    We need to know not just how to dismantle systems ‘out there’, but how to dismantle their tendrils from within us.
    We need to claim our power and learn to read a room for it.
    To understand power dynamics, as well as how to steward, shift and share power.
    We need to know how to navigate systems that were not designed for us.
    How to vision and seed a new world even when others say it can’t be done.
    Because this is what we’re here for – to remake the world.
    Laura Hartley is an activist, coach, and founder of Public Love Enterprises, an online school empowering changemakers to radically reimagine the world, creating the conditions for social healing and collective thriving.  Laura is fascinated by the space between inner and outer change, and her work empowers changemakers to get free, dismantling capitalism & patriarchy from the inside out.   She runs programs in healing burnout culture, regenerative leadership & feminist business. She is also the host of the Public Love Project, a podcast interviewing activists & thought leaders on remaking the world.   Laura lives and works on Gadigal land in Sydney, Australia but can frequently be found with her gluten-free snacks somewhere in the wild.

    How to Go Behind the Ballot during Election Times with Claire Campos O'Neal

    How to Go Behind the Ballot during Election Times with Claire Campos O'Neal

    Have you ever felt frustrated with what is happening around your town? Have you ever felt powerless to create change and have your voice heard?

    This coming Tuesday, November 8th, is the midterm election here in the US. For many, politics seems to be the one topic we all want to escape, yet we are surrounded by it. 

    Perhaps like the majority, you are a reluctant spectator in the past. However, there is so much at stake lately that I could not open up a discussion on this topic. 

    Over the course of the years, I have been fortunate enough to get a first-hand look at our governmental system.  During my career, I was asked to collaborate with Capital Hill Staffers to draft education policies and share a first-hand account of how these policies impacted our schools and students. 

    I have had the opportunity to watch individuals from both sides of the aisle work together successfully to make a difference in the lives of the people they represent.

    If you believe politics are "dirty," "don't matter," or "why should I care?" This show is for you today.

    I think that, at times, our limited understanding and knowledge of a topic keeps us from taking action or, in some cases taking the right action that can benefit us. 

    I know that we can often feel powerless and ineffective in creating change.  For this reason, I am sharing this interview with you today. 

    This week's guest is Claire Campos-O’Neal, mother to two young boys, daughter of a first-generation Mexican-American, and co-host of Go Behind the Ballot Podcast. In November 2021, she put her name on the ballot and ran for office for the first time. She hoped to be the next State Representative for House District-51, which covers much of southeast Austin and Travis County. 
     What pushed her to throw her hat in the ring was the regret I was sure I would feel if I stood back on the sidelines.

    Before running for office, she worked as a real estate agent focusing on residential sales. While Claire didn’t love the grind of working real estate transactions, she was always eager to learn more about the trajectory of her city, the demograp

    How to Lead through challenges-building, trust, and creating safety with Michelle Thompson

    How to Lead through challenges-building, trust, and creating safety with Michelle Thompson

    This week's show episode shows us that "Leadership is not about fixing employee problems. It's about cultivating relationships based on equality and a human connection." This quote is from Michelle Thompson.

    Her journey started with being accused of covering up the death of a resident to creating her own consulting and coaching business that helped to emerge. Experienced leaders learn how to prioritize human connections more than bottom lines to create workplaces that people never want to leave.

    Michele is a Registered Nurse with a Gerontology Specialist Certification with more than 25 years of clinical, strategic, and operational experience within seniors care.

    She specializes in leadership, has partnered with private and non-profit stakeholders, and has worked with First Nations in British Columbia. Michele supports leaders to develop skills founded in the basics of human connections, which build trust, lead change and create respectful workplaces where shared values lead to exceptional outcomes.

    Michele's unique expertise supports leaders to improve employee engagement by implementing her P.E.R.S.O.N. Centred Leadership Approach™. Michele empowers her clients to challenge the status quo and become employers of choice. Michele has developed curriculums in person and virtually in long-term care homes.
