    Podcast #51 - Private Practice: Successfully Transitioning from Employee to Entrepreneur

    Often when we talk about career, being an entrepreneur can be an option.  In fact, many of the entrepreneurial choices may be a variation of what you are already doing.  For Ty McGilberry, CEO and Managing Partner of his own firm, this was the case.  Is being an entrepreneur in your future?  Hear about Ty’s journey as he moved from employee to entrepreneur! 
    Born in Philadelphia, Ty grew up in Yeadon, and has lived in the greater Philadelphia area the majority of his life. He graduated from Monsignor Bonner High School in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. After high school he received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Pennsylvania State University both in Business Administration.
    After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Penn State University, Ty worked at the mutual fund giant Vanguard for over 10 years. During his time at Vanguard, he served and educated the individual investor, retirement plan sponsors and participants, and financial advisor markets. In his various roles, Ty focused on teaching investors how to manage and understand portfolio costs and fees as it relates to being able to reach investment goals.
    After leaving Vanguard, Ty launched his practice as a financial advisor. He built on his foundation of investment knowledge from Vanguard by adding in the comprehensive financial planning process that puts the client first and foremost. Ty serves a very diverse clientele by offering each client a plan uniquely crafted to meet their goals and objectives. After building his practice, in 2017 Ty created Pegasus Financial Planning.  His vision was to create a firm where advisors worked together to focus on educating and serving their client while following the fiduciary standard.

    Podcast #48 - Paradox of Leadership

    Podcast #48 - Paradox of Leadership

    The pandemic forced many of us to work in a different manner.  We didn’t expect it…. But we did it.  We were nimble, we were adaptive, and somehow, we moved into this new way of doing business as a matter of necessity.  It wasn’t planned… it was simply done.  We wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of those leadership skills that we used to succeed and talk about how we may have had to adjust and enhance some of those skills to be successful in this new world.
    Join Gale, Cooper and Mary as they discuss challenges that leaders may now face post pandemic. We are here to discuss leadership paradox, what it means but also how you can either uncover or acquire the skill and demonstrate these capabilities, not to check a box, but to serve better and lead better.

    Podcast #46 - Is Non-Promotable Work Hurting Your Career?

    Why are women not promoted as often as men?  There can be various reasons why women are not promoted as much or as quickly…  Some reasons may be  biased, both unconscious and conscious, and some may a choice to self select out of the career promotional journey.  Some may choose the mommy track, time off for taking care of loved ones, or other reasons. Cooper, Mary and Gale discuss some of these reasons… and you may be surprised at some of the unintended consequences of innocent actions.
