    I've Got You Energy

    I've Got You Energy

    Have you ever hired someone to do something for you and you just know it’s going to be done correctly? Or have you assigned someone a job to do at work and you know that they are going to get the work done no matter what? This is what I call the “I’ve Got You Energy.”
    Today on The Elegant Warrior Podcast, I will be discussing in detail what the “I’ve Got You Energy” is and how you can become the person that others know will complete a given task no matter what obstacles get in your way. This energy can be life changing for you on the receiving end as well as the giving end, and I will go over ways that will help you get better at both.

    Darcy Eikenberg & Rescuing Yourself

    Darcy Eikenberg & Rescuing Yourself

    Today, I had the great pleasure of interviewing Darcy Eikenberg. She is a leadership and career coach and the author of the book, Red Cape Rescue: Save Your Career Without Leaving Your Job. Her mission and the mission  of this book is “to help us change our lives at work without having to change everything in our lives.” 
    We will take a deep dive into the 3 sections of her book; Reset How You Think, Revise What You Say and Reinvent What You Do. It seems to be the norm that when you don’t like what you are doing at work or you begin to get bored that you move companies and make a career change. So, I found it very interesting how she has come up with a way of helping people and showing them how they don’t have to completely change their lives but yet still be fulfilled and excited about getting up for work everyday.

    You Are Capable

    You Are Capable

    On this episode of The Elegant Warrior Podcast, I discuss the simple fact that you are capable.  
    Recognizing your capability is a key part of becoming your own advocate. It’s also the first stage in being able to take risks, and if you’re not taking risks, you’re not opening yourself up to all the potential opportunities that come with the risk. 
    I believe in you and your capability, because by listening to this podcast, you’re showing me and yourself that you’re interested in getting comfortable with risk and with seizing opportunities. When you’re doing that, you’re advocating for yourself. 
    Please reach out to me to let me know how you’re advocating for yourself and how you have discovered your own capabilities; I love hearing your inspiring stories.

    Courtney E. Ackerman and The Book of Patience

    Courtney E. Ackerman and The Book of Patience

    On today’s episode of The Elegant Warrior podcast, I invite special guest author and researcher Courtney Ackerman on to the show to talk about her new book, ‘The Book of Patience’. Courtney has compiled 250 tips, tricks and thought-provoking ideas to help us to become more patient, which is something that is so relevant and necessary as we all wait for COVID-19 restrictions to stop dominating our lives. 
    I love her book as her advice is so intuitive and it’s the kind of book that encourages you to flick through it over and over again. Courtney’s approach is to give different kinds of advice and to illustrate her point in several ways so that you can find the parts that resonate with you the most. She emphasizes that patience is a choice that we have to make - perhaps we can’t change the situation that we’re in, but we can work on our mindset to change how we feel about it. When we apply this technique, our patience will grow over time, like a muscle. 
    Listen in to find out how to embrace the downtime and how practicing the art of patience will help you to reconnect with the world around you and feel like you’re a small part of a whole. Once you make room for patience in your life, you’d be surprised what other positive changes come along too!

    Risk or opportunity?

    Risk or opportunity?

    On today’s episode of The Elegant Warrior podcast, I cover a crucial concept in the process of beginning to be your own advocate: the risk versus opportunity matrix. 
    Sometimes, some people can be put off from advocating for themselves because they perceive the risk as being too great. When you ask your boss for a raise, or try to lay down a boundary with a tricky family member, you may be worried about risking a close relationship or making a fool of yourself. It’s natural to be averse to risk; in fact, it’s part of the human condition. 
    However, being averse to risk can mean that you stay stuck in the same place, not getting the things you want for yourself. I know what it feels like to take a risk - and to lose! - and I want you to know that people who take risks are generally more satisfied in life. I explain how to reframe your thinking around risks and opportunities so that you feel ready to take a risk in life and to be your own advocate. Listen to this episode to find out how to prepare yourself to take a risk, making sure to control the elements of the situation that you can so that you give yourself the greatest possible chance to succeed. 
    Stay tuned all the way through to find out how you can sign yourself up for one of the two spots left in my one-on-one coaching program, so you can learn how to step up and seize the opportunities in your life.

    Jason Harris - Be a Master Influencer

    Jason Harris - Be a Master Influencer

    On today’s episode of The Elegant Warrior, I had the pleasure of speaking with Jason Harris, co-founder and CEO of Mekanism, a San Francisco-based advertising agency that has shaped the image of brands such as Ben & Jerry’s, OkCupid, Jose Cuervo and Alaska Airlines.
    He is the author of the book ‘The Soulful Art of Persuasion: The 11 Habits that will make Anyone a Master Influencer’. I was blown away by the messages in his book, which is an entertaining and easy read that’s packed with great insights and interesting stories.
    Make sure to stay tuned right to the end to listen to Jason and I discussing skill hunting and how to use your talents to give back to the world around you. I loved his idea of looking within yourself to apply the skills you already have to a new audience - it’s a simple idea that can make such a huge difference.

Great podcast! Well with your time!

Heather curates relevant topics in a thoughtful, compelling and always useful manner. Both her solo pods and conversations with guests include thought provoking well-informed Perspective that always leave me challenged (in a good way) and enriched! I love supporting a fellow female podcaster who is working hard to make the world just a little better once episode at a time!

This podcast is a MUST listen each week!

That’s how valuable this podcast is! Heather always chooses topics and guests that captivate! The topics are interesting and I always feel I learn so much and generally just feel better, uplifted and more motivated after listening. We need more pods like it!

How our early life dictates our entire life

Great stories of survival - first as a child surviving an accident that took her sister and then again when her husband was medically not a part of the family and life's daily living. It's clear Ms Zimmerman was already prepared for life and loss....grabbed bull by horn and survived again and not only survived, but in their name, florished, with Elegance.
Heather has a way of picking her speakers in a way to put the pieces together in our life! Thank you HH.
