    Ep. 131: The Future Self: Preparing Kids For An Unknown Future with Shannon Cox

    Ep. 131: The Future Self: Preparing Kids For An Unknown Future with Shannon Cox

    Happy Day, Friend! 
    On this week’s podcast episode, I’m talking about how to prepare our kids for an unknown future by helping them focus on and develop skills for their “future self”. 
    My special guest today is Shannon Cox. 
    Shannon currently serves as the 12th Montgomery County Educational Service Center Superintendent, in the organization’s history and is their first female superintendent. Her role includes working directly with and advocating for all 16 public school districts in Montgomery County. As the educational leader for the county, she works with various leaders across city/county government, and other public sectors. 
    Shannon was featured as a TEDxDayton speaker, where she gave her TED Talk on “Future Self”. Shannon has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Dayton, where she taught various workshop classes and Educational Leadership courses. 
    Shannon and I talk about: 
    ~ her journey into education; 
    ~ what keeps her inspired to stay in education despite the massive exodus of teachers; 
    ~ the concept of the “future self” - what it is and why it’s important in the classroom today; 
    ~ suggested tools and strategies to help kids cultivate a strong, positive, resilient, and marketable future self; 
    ~ how she uses the concept of the “future self” in her own life; 
    ~ and so much more!

    Ep. 130: 4 Ways To Keep Going In The Face of No

    Ep. 130: 4 Ways To Keep Going In The Face of No

    Happy Day, Friend! 
    In this podcast episode, I’m sharing some of my go-to strategies that I’ve personally used when I received a big “No!” while on the path to achieving my big, scary goals. 
    These strategies have helped me keep going in the face of hearing that soul crushing “No!” and to finally get to the “Yes!” that I was striving towards. 
    I talk about the mindfulness practice of detachment. While working on our goals, it’s important to have a vision of what we are trying to obtain, but it’s equally important to not be attached to any specific results. I know this is a tough one! 
    Be with what you are doing, but stay detached from any specific outcome. This practice will serve you well when you get little or big “Nos” on your own goal journey. 
    I’m giving you 4 (four) strategies that can help you re-frame these challenging moments in your life, and give you the fuel you need to keep going. 
    They’ve helped me stay the course, and I hope they help you as well. 
    Remember, any big, scary goal you take on is about endurance, not speed. These strategies have helped me take small steps forward, which have added up to big leaps in overall distance. 
    Remember, the world needs your spark in action, and only you can provide that special magic someone needs. I’m voting your victory!

    Ep. 129: How to Successfully Share Your Ideas with Martine Thomassen

    Ep. 129: How to Successfully Share Your Ideas with Martine Thomassen

    Happy Day, Friend! 
    On this week’s podcast episode, I’m talking about how to successfully share your ideas. 
    My special guest today is Martine Thomassen. 
    Martine Thomassen is a marketing and mindset coach. She has a masters degree in digital marketing and a decade of experience in the industry. Working with clients, she discovered that the real reason for succeeding in marketing was not being technically savvy or doing lots of market research. 
    She developed the concept "Holistic Marketing", which not only focuses on marketing strategy, but the client as a whole human being. She helps her clients navigate through perfectionism, imposter syndrome, procrastination, niche drama and limiting beliefs to become confident on social media and attract more clients organically.  
    Martine and I talk about: 
    ~ her journey into holistic marketing; 
    ~ what holistic marketing is and why you want to know about it (because sharing your ideas makes a difference for others); 
    ~ how to shift your inner narrative about marketing, particularly if you have a negative perspective; 
    ~ why marketing is a must to make an impact; 
    ~ how to transform roadblocks that may get in the way of you sharing your ideas; 
    ~ tips to move past perfectionism, imposter syndrome, and procrastination; 
    ~ digital media strategy tips; 
    ~ and so much more!

    Hector and I talk about: 
    ~ his journey into meditation and mindfulness; 
    ~ how our moment-to-moment experience can fuel us with deep insight (the good, bad, and ugly); 
    ~ how meditation can help you re-write your limiting inner narrative, widen your idea of what’s possible, and live with more joy, success, and peace of mind on your own terms;

    On this week’s podcast episode, I’m talking about student life, culture, and well-being in my student voices series, Part 2. 
    My special guest today is 8th grade middle school student, Starr K. 
    I had the honor of teaching Starr in our yoga + mindfulness classes at KIPP Journey for two years and I’m so thrilled to highlight her voice and story on the show today. 
    Starr K. is an 8th grader currently attending KIPP Journey Collegiate. She was formally introduced to mindfulness in the 3rd grade, and ever since she has found many ways to use mindfulness in difficult situations. She spends her time doing gymnastics, or you might see her reading a book about mental health or historical fiction. 

    Ever since Starr was in the 5th grade, she has had a passion for social studies and has been curious about what actually happened in history and not just what is seen in the textbooks. Most of all Starr has the propensity to be great and to be a star! 
    Starr and I talk about: 
    ~ current stressors in student life; 

    ~ how mindfulness helps her gain clarity on her values;

    ~ how it helps her manage her emotions; 

    ~ what parents and teachers can do to support their teens; 

    ~ teen mental and emotional health; 
    ~ various other topics on student life, culture, and well-being; 
    ~ and so much more!
