    Reclaiming Your Career During a Pandemic

    Reclaiming Your Career During a Pandemic

    Anna Oakes is a consultant coach and caretaker of humanity. She combines her love for humanity with her 20 plus years of corporate experience. Now the magic, the intersection of her love for humanity and her love and understanding of corporate is what she's going to share with us today. She's not talking about something that she's read about, or something that she saw on TV, or an article that she read in an airplane magazine while she was on a flight. What she's bringing today is what she knows because she has walked it, she has been on the ground. and she's walked it and talked it. And she's going to tell us how we visualize what our next best step is, how we move from where we are to where we want to be, and most importantly, how we reclaim ownership of our career in a way that lights us on fire.
    In this episode we discussed:
    How COVID has affected our spirits, family and work dynamics
    How to determine what you should keep doing and what you should change
    Why now is the perfect time for organizations to change
    How we’ve lost control of our own careers
    How the pandemic has changed the way we view work
    How we can reclaim ownership, direction, energy for our careers?
    The number one cause of burnout right now in the world of work
    How to bridge the gap between self awareness and self advocacy
    The difference between being managed and being led

    What Columbo Can Teach Us About Thriving in Uncertain Times

    What Columbo Can Teach Us About Thriving in Uncertain Times

    There are some situations you don’t expect to learn anything from, like watching an episode of Columbo. I love that show, but I consider it pure entertainment and a light-version at that. I recently took a second look at it with a specific goal in mind–to consider what Columbo might say about our current uncertain times.
    At times like these, we could all use a role model who knows how to thrive in the most uncertain times. Hence, my ‘research’ into Columbo. In case you haven’t seen the show, he always got the most puzzling cases to solve, or he got what seemed to be a simple case and immediately complicated it before he solved it.
    In every instance, no matter how uncertain the case seemed, Columbo kept smiling and showing up authentically until he solved the case. Let’s see how he did this so we can learn to thrive in the most uncertain times.

    How to Be Brave Enough to Chase Your Dream

    How to Be Brave Enough to Chase Your Dream

    This episode was 17 years in the making. Joining me on the podcast is a woman who had to punch fear in the throat and shut down a successful business in order to chase her true dream. An award-winner in two different careers, Ana Lydia Monaco stopped by to walk us through her big, scary career pivot and let us know how the shift worked out! Her insights on being true to who you are and walking through life with grace are going to rock your socks.
    Growing up, nobody in Ana Lydia's immediate family was encouraging her to pursue her dreams. In fact, she was told her dreams wouldn't come true so she should abandon them. In their world she was supposed to go to college and become a doctor, lawyer, or accountant. That was what they knew, so that's all they encouraged her to pursue. There is nothing wrong with being a doctor, lawyer or accountant, as long as that's what you want to do. Listen in to find out how she found the courage to buck that system.
    In this episode we discussed:How Ana Lydia helped engineer my most embarrassing celebrity moment
    What made her decide to shutter her award-winning PR business
    What made her keep going when people told her to stop
    When she knew she wanted to be a filmmaker
    How she handled the pressure of being a young, latina woman breaking barriers in entertainment

    Finding your Inner Confidence and Beauty

    Joining me on the podcast today is a super successful entrepreneur who knows a lot about battling low self-confidence and learning to appreciate her own beauty.

Fantastic Confidence Boost For Men and Women!

Allegra’s heart and passion for both people and empowerment comes through in both her energy and in her wisdom. The “high vibe” presence instantly makes you feel better about yourself. Add to that her empowering wisdom, practical insights into how to grow in confidence, and the way she helps bring her guests’ stories out creates an instant heart-connection with you. Though this podcast is geared towards women, men can gain so much from this.

Bright star we need to follow

It’s important to tune in to a podcast that will help us find both our blind spots and superpowers. One side of the equation is not enough. Allegra does this for us. Definitely start with her Columbia episode.... anyone who shares ideas and compares Peter Falk to how we can feel confident during uncertain times has my attention.

It’s just listicles!

No actual real advice or conversation. It’s just listicles of what she thinks confidence is.
