E138 - Defy the Odds
Today, our featured guest has a degree in Psychology, and also she is currently an Art, Project, and Talent Manager for a local artist. For a decade, she was a successful career woman, holding titles such as a Corporate Trainer, Branch, and Regional Manager over five states. However, she left her career to care for her daughter, who has neurological and language-based learning differences, and her father’s primary caregiver, who was in the early stages of cancer.
She spent the last decade dedicating her time and efforts as a volunteer and philanthropist, serving on multiple Advisory Boards, attended annual mission trips, and held positions with 11 nonprofits within her community. Even she loved the work; she had forgotten the power-driven and successful career woman she once was. After some soul searching, she began looking for a new career. Having been out of the workforce for nearly 12 years, mixed with the pandemic, hurt her ability to recognize her value. Her executive titles and years of community service were heavily discounted, and it caused her to feel unappreciated and wondering what her purpose was outside of being a mother.
Under the guidance and encouragement of her husband, she began weightlifting nine months ago. Building her muscles had put an end to her aches and pains, she began to feel invincible.
She started her IG account hoping to inspire friends to follow her new weightlifting journey and begin their own. And after five months, she hit 50,000 followers; she has over a 25% engagement rate which is 10x the average for an account of that size.
Her IG account represents her fully. She is not conventional and never has been. She believes that her bold and confident style has caused a separation from some of her friends and family. Surprisingly, for the most part, her closest friends and family are not her biggest supporters! They don’t comment on her journey or check in with her to see how she is progressing. They don’t fully understand the direction she has headed, her goals, or endgame. Many cannot comprehend why she is putting herself out there the way she is.
She hopes to continue being an inspiration for her daughter and other women, especially individuals over 40, proving that they are never too old to start a new journey. She encourages them to be unapologetically and authentically free to defy the odds against them.
Welcome to our featured guest, Kelly Thompson.

E136 - When U Lose Everything
Today, our featured guest has spent 10 years working and thriving in the field of Art education. After winning the 2016 Maryland Art Education Association Elementary Teacher of the Year Award for the state's highest performing county, she started thinking about how to keep achieving more as a young, hungry, and passionate artist and educator.
She decided to quit her job in art education to pursue her own illustration/art workshop business. The leap into this new career pursuit came around the same time her mother was dying of multiple Myeloma.
At the most crippling moment of her life and feeling more lost than ever, she was able to use her creative outlet in illustration to build a thriving business in freelance illustration and muraling. The love of art education led her to facilitating professional development workshops for the Maryland State Department of Education as one of the youngest Roster Artists ever hired while working as an Educational Director of an art education non-profit called Leaders of Tomorrow Youth Center.
She is a young creative leader, and she believes it is time for young professionals to view themselves as the same to make positive changes in our world. She also designed a coloring book, House of Curiosity, that incorporates unusual juxtapositions of architecture, wildlife, and nature. The coloring book is meant to heighten curiosity through subject distortion and playful imagery.
