    Joan's Career Tips - Joan Interviewed on Carlette Christmas's "On Point TV"

    Joan's Career Tips - Joan Interviewed on Carlette Christmas's "On Point TV"

    “…You have to know when to you have to know an opportunity when it's in front of you and you have to have the courage to take that opportunity…” That's a quote from GCR Host Joan Michelson on On Point Talk with Carlette Christmas.
    This week we air an episode that was previously only available on our youtube page - Joan Michelson as a guest on another podcast, On Point Talk with Carlette Christmas.
    Here are some key points discussed:
    • Joan's career path through corporate journalism to working with Chrysler heading up the Communications and co-head the sales and marketing of their electric car division (despite not owning a car) which put her on the green economy trajectory and spurred Green Connections Radio podcast.
    • Bringing awareness to the lack of women in the industry and using her outlet to increase the visibility of women.
    • Helping women figure out their professional journeys as a career coach
    • Career tips

    • And more!
    “Self-talk is huge self-talk and self-compassion. You won't always say the right thing, you won't always make the right decision, you won't always you know fill in the blank but you make the right decision and you say what you think is appropriate at that moment, but it's what we tell ourselves. If we say, ‘oh you're an idiot, you screwed that up’ then you're gonna bring yourself down, right? If you say ‘hey, you know, you put yourself out there, you gave it a shot.’ Makes all the difference in the world because when you feel good about it, it opens up possibilities and then you can see possibilities.”

    A New Energy Infrastructure – Lisa Jacobson, Business Council for Sustainable Energy

    A New Energy Infrastructure – Lisa Jacobson, Business Council for Sustainable Energy

    “The Covid-19 pandemic has created the biggest shock to the global energy system since at least World War II…Renewables are the only energy source that will grow in 2020.”
    David Turk, International Energy Agency Testifying on Capitol Hill June 2020
    A key component of President Biden’s infrastructure plan is addressing our energy needs and doing so in a way that does not continue to hurt the planet or public health.  We are acutely aware of the massive impact the pandemic had on the energy sector – with oil going literally to below zero dollars per barrel for the first time – and are also acutely aware of our economy’s dependence on energy of some kind.
    So, how do we move forward to address this conundrum? Listen to this fascinating discussion with Lisa Jacobson, president of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) on Green Connections Radio podcast on how a silver lining in this crisis may be the critical clean energy innovation coming out of it, including millions of new, high-skilled jobs.
    You’ll hear:
    How clean energy is a bright spot in this crisis, even as it takes a hit economically. Why this pandemic-economic crisis is driving much-needed clean energy innovation and infrastructure. Creative, bipartisan legislation that could ramp up these changes and help us keep the clean air and water we’ve seen during this pandemic. Steps you can take in your own world today – including voting for candidates across government in every election, including the presidency, who support clean energy and the environment. Plus, important career advice from a woman proving that you can make a difference and do well at the same time…. and more. “Go for it! Do your research on organizations, share your passion and be persistent. (Renewable energies) are the growth sectors.”
    Lisa Jacobson on Green Connections Radio podcast
