    Standing In Your Own Spotlight With Elinor Moshe

    Standing In Your Own Spotlight With Elinor Moshe

    In this episode of the ‘Making It Count’ podcast, we sit down with Thought Leader, Mentor, Author and Podcast Host, Elinor Moshe. 

    Elinor’s career started when she enrolled into architecture and discovered she was a creative, but not in the conventional sense. ‘I started asking deeper questions as an architect, which led to me the world of construction and I really enjoyed the challenges and complexities of the industry.’ After getting to her career ‘destination,’ Elinor found herself in a place of unfulfillment. ‘I knew I wanted to climb the corporate ladder but I couldn’t tell you why’ says Elinor. Over time Elinor’s confidence had eroded away and she became meek, diminished and dull. But, meeting her mentor Ron changed all that. It has taken a lot of work on her mindset but Elinor says, ‘what gives me ultimate confidence is I know who I am – to the macro and the micro’. 

    With her new-found confidence, Elinor became an ambitious and driven Thought Leader. However, it has not come without criticism- ‘passive aggressive people can’t stand to see others win’ say Elinor ‘I learnt early on, that I’m very glad to have haters because I know I’m doing something right.’  

    On a construction site you have to a contingency plan for anything that may go wrong – and this is exactly the same for our careers. ‘On a project we plan for the worst and people aren’t using that same principal-based insight and wisdom in their careers.’ This is why advising and coaching is so necessary.  

    So, what is Thought Leadership? ‘A Thought Leader is someone who is known for what they know, because what they know makes a difference’ says Elinor. ‘It allows you to scale out as you build your message, your brand and your market based on something you are really passionate about.’  It will attract the right, value aligned people, to your business.  

    So, as the top Thought Leader in the construction industry what is Elinor’s top advice? ‘The best thing that someone can do for themselves is dig into their heart of hearts and understand – what is it that I want and what is it that I yearn for. The onus is always on the individual to ask – what do I want?’  

    So, sit back and enjoy this episode with as Elinor Moshe Makes It Count.

    Heart Centred Leadership with Sophie Bretag

    Heart Centred Leadership with Sophie Bretag

    In this episode of the ‘Making It Count’ podcast, we sit down with Sophie Bretag who is a heart centred leader and works in Aged Care as a People and Culture Manager. ‘Often the elderly are not featured as much as they need to be’ says Sophie. ‘We have 80 residents and it is so amazing to be able to have that time with people who have lived extraordinary lives.’

    Sophie’s role is to manage 150 staff who care for the residents. She is first and foremost a heart centred leader with kindness at the core. To make this work Sophie says, ‘You need to be able to set clear boundaries, be direct, give space for open communication and connection.’ It comes down to empowering her staff to do what they need to do and, giving them the tools and information to do so successfully.

    ‘Respect is hard to gain but easy to lose’ says Sophie ‘I don’t expect anything of my team that I don’t expect of myself – It’s about walking the talk.’ As a leader, you are being watched every second of the day. ‘If you want to be respected, then act in a respectful way. Be what you want to see.’

    Since Covid lockdowns, business and personal worlds have collided. Workplace wellbeing and psychological safety have always been a non-negotiable for Sophie. She openly discusses her anxiety and the realisation that her staff may also feel this way. ‘Workplace wellbeing makes sense - If you take care of the humans as humans within the workplace then it is a win win.’ Staff need to feel safe to approach everyone, from the CEO down to the floor manager. ‘It’s our responsibility, as leaders, to make sure it is happening and to trust your team’ says Sophie. ‘The key is one on one conversations. Not to check in on a task, but to ask them what they need from me.’

    In 2020, Sophie was a finalist for the Leadership HQ National Women in Leadership Award which celebrated kind, courageous and inclusive female leaders. ‘I have so much respect for women who are thriving, leading, being brave and are unapologetically themselves. To be in that category was overwhelming’ says Sophie, ‘But, the best thing was being able to talk about aged-care.’

    So, sit back and enjoy this episode as Sophie Bretag shares how a leader Makes It Count.

    Women Talking Finance with Karen Eley

    Women Talking Finance with Karen Eley

    In this episode of the ‘Making It Count’ podcast, we sit down with Karen Eley, founder of ‘Women Talking Finance’, a service which provides money coaching and financial literacy services specifically to women. Today we dive deep into the psychology behind how we treat money and why we do what we do in this space.

    She was raised by a single mum who told Karen that ‘a man is not a financial plan,’ an ethos she adopted from an early age. After many years working in the auditing and technical services space, Karen took a leap of faith and in 2019 started her own financial coaching service ‘Women Talking Finance.’ ‘I wanted to work with clients to unpack the psychology behind how we handle our finances so they could make long-lasting and sustainable changes for the better in how they manage their money’ says Karen.

    ‘Men and women often come from different backgrounds when it comes to values or how we should approach the money we spend’ explains Karen, ‘There are two sides to managing money – the external side and the internal side’. Karen has seen vast difference between how women in their 20s approach their finances compared with women in their 40s. ‘Women have everything they need to be really good investors; they just need to apply the same strategy to an investment portfolio and go from consumers to investors.’

    Money is intertwined in all we do as humans. ‘Money stress can impact our health and even relationships.’ So, with that in mind we ask Karen for her top three tips for long term financial goals. First, we need to make financial goals with purpose and direction. Secondly, build your knowledge around your finances and finally, and most importantly, ‘become really clear on what money means to you – reflect on your childhood associations with money - because as children we are conditioned around what we think, feel and how we act with money.’

    So, sit back and enjoy this episode with as Karen Eley Makes It Count when it comes to managing our finances.

    21 Ways to Thrive With Self Care and Acceptance with Sonia Bestulic

    21 Ways to Thrive With Self Care and Acceptance with Sonia Bestulic

    In this episode of the ‘Making It Count’ podcast, we sit down with Sonia Bestulic, a Multi-Award nominated Author, Founding Director of Talking Heads Speech Pathology, Podcaster of Chatabout Children with Sonia Bestulic, and highly regarded Speaker.

    As a child, Sonia loved helping people and the older she got the greater this desire within her grew. All of her passion accumulated until she became a speech pathologist and opened her own clinic in Sydney. With the mothers Sonia worked with, she saw that although there were strength and determination, mums are exhausted. ‘I could see that they weren’t including themselves on their list of people to nurture and take care of’ says Sonia. She realised that by supporting mothers – we can support the children in a much more elevated way. ‘I wanted them to know -You matter too’. So, Sonia wrote her third book – ‘Flourish for Mums - 21 ways to thrive with self-care and acceptance.’

    Sonia gives us a sneak peek and reveals some her top tips to thrive with self-care. Tip number one - ‘Honour your human-ness – let go of all the high expectations and perfectionism and focus on what matters.’  Sonia goes on to explain the ‘compare and contrast button’ in our brains and how we can interrupt negative thinking with thankfulness. Also, we need to get up and dance! ‘Dance is an awesome re-connection tool - it brings you in a zone of presence.’

    We switch gears and talk all things social media. ‘I think sometimes we forget we're in control of it’ says Sonia, ‘You need to make sure you are making it work for you and ask - what is the purpose of me being on social media?’ then take a moment to ask yourself how you are feeling after you get off social media.

    And finally, we hear how Sonia takes time to reconnect with herself as a working mum of 3 and her ‘to-do’ and ‘to-be' list.

    So, sit back and enjoy this episode with Sonia Bestulic as she Makes It Count.

    Why being uncomfortable is powerful Tory Archbold

    Why being uncomfortable is powerful Tory Archbold

    In this episode of the ‘Making It Count’ podcast, we sit down with founder of Powerful Steps, Tory Archbold.  

    Tory founded the globally recognised PR agency ‘Torstar’ and was at the top of her game working with influencers like Megan Gale, Zara, Nespresso, Victoria’s Secret and Steve Madden. However, for three years each time she did a launch ‘a little bit of my heart was saying-this is the last time you will do this Tory.’ Sitting at the launch of Drew Barrymore’s ‘Flower Beauty’ listening to her speak about surviving tough times, Tory had her ‘ah-ha’ moment and thought ‘lady, I see you and raise you five. You know what, I’m done.’ And she was – she stepped away from PR to get her life back.  

    Tory had her own story to tell. ‘I wanted a life with more purpose’ says Tory ‘It was time to reshape my story and step into my power zone.’ So, took some time out to re-evaluate and using her forward momentum, founded Powerful Steps in 2019 – A platform to inspire, encourage and empower others to step outside their comfort zone and into their power zone. 

    ‘My values are passion, integrity and delivery – my success is your success’ says Tory. After a near-death experience and ten years of being stalked, Tory gained a fresh perspective. She took the bravest step of all and publicly revealed her personal mask. ‘There is power in connection. I wanted to be a better version of myself to teach others that challenges can become possibilities.’ Julie met Tory through her ‘Business Attraction Program’ where she has been able to develop relationships with other value-aligned female entrepreneurs.  

    A big part of why Tory is so successful is the power of her brand and how she can attract value-sharing people to that brand. She shares with us the key to having a successful and powerful personal brand to ensure it attracts what you want - ‘When you connect with someone, the first thing they will do is google you – so invest in some good imagery for LinkedIn’, and secondly ‘work on the first three sentences of your bio and understand your 5-point story’. It's all about investing in your own story, understanding the power of that story and translating that into a powerful communication tool so that people want to connect with you. ‘You need to believe in yourself and the power if your story’ say Tory ‘the most successful leaders are uncomfortable to be able to step into a higher vibration.’ 

    ‘A happy heart is a magnet for miracles’ say Tory, ‘my life is now in alignment and I am happy’. So, strip out what doesn’t serve you and make yourself available to the things that serve you and your value set.  

    So, sit back and enjoy this episode with as Tory Archbold Makes It Count.
