    Tips for Sharing Your Story Online

    You may have noticed that people kind of say the same thing over and over. They have one message with different versions for different audiences, and that consistency is a big part of their influence. But being consistent on social media doesn’t have to mean coming up with brand new content every day. It could mean showing up consistently with repurposed content or going deeper into old content. In this episode, I give you some tips to tell your story online and increase your influence.

    Preparing for the Future Now

There is so much opportunity in the world today but how do we empower others to fully take advantage of it? In this episode, I rift on this quote and talk about the humble beginnings of my dissertation.

    Beginning with a Culture of Empathy

    The struggle never ends. You solve one problem, just to find a different one later one. But finding the right problem is a huge part of finding the right solution.

Insightful & Relevant Conversations!

As a community college educator, I find so many relevant insights on this podcast. As we navigate these exciting and changing times, we need to hear voices from all fields and industries so that we can draw from each other. I appreciate the variety of leaders that Sabba (Dr. Q) interviews, and I learn something new and valuable in every episode. Mostly though, I feel energized and excited about the future after hearing these conversations. Sabba’s enthusiasm jumps through and her thoughtful questions lead to fascinating revelations from everyone she speaks with.

Great Podcast for Entrepreneurs

As an entrepreneur, managing the challenges of a growing startup, this podcast was highly relevant, beneficial and with just the right amount of details. The host and the guests did a great job of explaining and contextualizing vision sprints and how they can be beneficial towards managing your organization.

I’ve only had a chance to listen to the first episode of season 2, but I’m looking forward to more when time permits.
