    67: Discovering Your Authentic Career with guest Kari Cravalho

    67: Discovering Your Authentic Career with guest Kari Cravalho

    My guest today is Kari Cravalho, a coach for working moms and moms looking to return to the workforce. Through 1:1 and small group coaching, she offers moms a place to show up as is and explore what they truly want and need as they balance motherhood, career, and self.



    I loved what she had to say about finding our essence and using those interests and goals as a guide while we navigate work at home and outside the home.



    Summary:

    Career Paths and Life Transitions

    Beth and Kari had a detailed discussion about their career paths and experiences. Beth shared her expertise in coaching women undergoing transitions, particularly working mothers. Kari, on the other hand, talked about her background in human resources, her MBA from Kellogg, and her roles at healthcare tech companies and Adobe. Both agreed on the importance of discovering authentic life and work paths, as well as the role of challenges and transitions in shaping these paths. Kari also shared her experience transitioning from an HR leader to a stay-at-home mom and then starting her own coaching business to support working women. She emphasized the satisfaction and challenges of her roles and how having a coach helped her find her purpose again. Beth ended the conversation by asking about Kari's methods for helping clients balance their career choices and aspirations based on her own experience and the example of a client in the medical field.

    66: What To Do If Your Spouse Doesn't Validate You

    Are you working (from home or not), handling the kids school schedules, going to their events, doing all the household chores, and feeling invalidated, lonely, and exhausted?



    Have you told your husband (or wife), "I need you to show me that you love me every day by little things and making me a priority,"?



    I've been there too, and what I discovered was surprising. In this episode I discuss what to do if you feel like your spouse doesn't validate or prioritize you.

    65: How to Heal From Your Critical Mother

    65: How to Heal From Your Critical Mother

    Many of my clients had critical mothers. They inherited many "shoulds" and dumped who they really were to win her "love" -- which was really just her approval.



    Critical mothers pass on the pain of their own rejected selves to their daughters, if they don't do the inner work to heal first.



    In this episode, after giving you permission to take your ability to receive even deeper as I am currently doing, I discuss exactly how you can begin to heal from this kind of upbringing.



    As always, you can learn more at bethrowles.com or go straight to learning about my marriage coaching program at happilyeveraftercoach.com



    Thanks for listening!

    AI Summary

    Lost Sight of Intentions: Beth's Marriage Advice

    Beth had a heart-to-heart talk, where she shared her belief
    that many marriages end due to losing sight of the original intentions. Beth
    emphasized that couples often forget their initial dream of growing old
    together, sharing life experiences, and the promise to stay together till
    death. She noted that when conflicts arise, instead of focusing on the
    positive aspects of the partnership, people tend to subconsciously look for
    reasons to leave, which can lead to ruining the marriage. Beth encouraged her
    audience to be mindful of their initial intentions and to look for reasons to
    stay together rather than reasons to leave.

    Focusing on Partner's Positives

    Beth emphasized the importance of focusing on the positive
    aspects of our partner and not just highlighting their flaws. She encouraged
    to acknowledge the reasons why we chose them in the first place and to
    remember that they are different from us, which is often one of the reasons
    we are attracted to them. Beth also reminded that this applies to our
    children as well, who are a mix of both parents, and this diversity is what
    makes them whole and beautiful.

    Dangers of Relationship Exit Focus

    Beth warned against focusing on reasons to end a relationship,
    emphasizing that doing so can manifest conflict and unhappiness. She noted
    that even if one isn't explicitly expressing negative feelings, the other
    party will still pick up on them, potentially leading to a self-fulfilling
    prophecy of conflict and disconnection. Beth emphasized the importance of
    striving for peacefulness, safety, and happiness, and the potential dangers
    of seeking reasons to leave.

    Relationship Ending Discussion

    Beth had a discussion about ending a relationship and its
    implications. She warned about the dangers of looking for negative aspects of
    a person, which could lead to seeing those traits more clearly. Beth also
    mentioned the need for a person to be present with their children. She ended
    the discussion by noting that she was done and wanted the other parties to
    settle down.

    Intentions: Shaping Our Experiences

    Beth explained how powerful intentions can be in shaping our
    experiences. She used examples from hiking, vacations, and dining out to
    illustrate how setting an intention to enjoy or find the good in a situation
    can change our perspective and experience. Beth emphasized that when we set
    intentions, we can direct our experiences and find growth opportunities,
    rather than focusing on what's wrong.

    Intentional Marriage: Staying Power

    Beth emphasized the power of intention in marriages. She
    highlighted that without a conscious intention to stay together, a marriage
    will inevitably fail. Beth cited the example of a person named Jason Duncan
    who gained fame after saying in a podcast interview that he and his wife
    refuse to consider divorce as it is not in their vocabulary, due to their
    commitment to stay together forever. Beth challenged those present to
    consider whether they want to stay on the "struggle bus" or the
    "drama triangle" or choose to adopt the intention of staying
    married.

    Positive Growth and Proactive Mindset

    Beth emphasized the importance of focusing on the positive,
    personal growth, and being proactive in creating good outcomes. She
    encouraged others to adopt a teacher's mindset, grounded in what they want
    and how they can make it happen.
