    EP 179: Confidently Turning Her Life Around (Emilee’s Story)

    EP 179: Confidently Turning Her Life Around (Emilee’s Story)

    Do you often feel like you’re just going through the motions of life? 
     
    You go to work, make a good income, and take the occasional vacation…but somehow, life just doesn’t make you feel as excited or energized as it should. 
     
    Changing your perspective about what’s possible starts with a single step. 
     
    Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake welcomes Emily to share her success story. As an accounting professional and a mother to two young children, she recognized how her work life was negatively impacting her home life. She decided it was time to stop “going through the motions” and start investing in herself. She wanted a better future that felt more in alignment with who she is. 
     
    So, she reached out and made the call that turned her life around.   
     
    In this episode, you’ll hear what stood out to her the most about our program, and how she went from feeling stuck to finally taking action. She shares how her experience growing up as the youngest of three created a lack of self-awareness, and why asking for help when she needed it allowed her to take space for herself and confidently make decisions based on what she wanted. You’ll learn what makes our job search process different, and how to know when you’re truly ready to embark on your career coaching journey. 
     
    If you’re ready to gain a greater sense of self-awareness and shift towards a more positive perspective on your life and career, then Emilee’s story will inspire you. 
     
    A better, more aligned future is closer than you think. 
     
    What You’ll Learn:
    What makes our program different from the rest (2:00) Why Emilee felt stuck and what drove her to finally initiate change (5:50) How tapping into self-awareness helped her find herself again (12:38) Why redefining the traditional job search yields better results (21:51) How to know when you’re ready to make a change (24:09)  
    Favorite Quotes:
     
    I wish I would have done the program 10 years ago. But, I wouldn’t have been where I am now or have the significant growth that I’ve had because I didn't have those experiences that were allowing me to say, okay, that's not what I want. I want something different. -Emilee I really had no idea who I was or what I wanted. And now I do. Now I know exactly what I want and who I am. -Emilee I never felt that this feeling was possible for me. I never felt like I could get to this level and feel this confident and successful- just being able to be myself. I was always just going through the motions that we’re taught in school; just go get a job, work your hours to be able to go on vacations. Now, I've completely shifted the way I think about it and I honestly never would have gotten here if I didn't invest in myself through this program. -Emilee To be in the right mindset for this program, you have to be willing to be honest with yourself and make the changes and listen to the tough love. Really, it's just shining a mirror back onto yourself in your own words. -Emilee

    EP 178: Worried You Aren’t Qualified for Something Else?

    Do you worry that you don’t have a special talent or skill set that’s unique to you? 
     
    It’s more common than you know for women to sell ourselves short when it comes to recognizing our own unique gifts and talents. We tend to focus on worrying about whether we’re good enough, or worse, convincing ourselves that we don’t have a unique skill or talent at all.
     
    Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake unpacks the definition of “secret sauce”, helping you to recognize the natural gifts that you’re likely overlooking. If you’re trapped in the lie of questioning whether or not you have a unique set of skills, then it’s time to conquer the limiting beliefs that are holding you back. 
     
    In this episode, you’ll learn how to identify your unique secret sauce transferable skills. You’ll hear why it’s so common, especially for high-achievers, to hold onto the false beliefs that you’re not good enough or that you have nothing special to bring to the table. Everyone has a secret sauce. So, if you’re ready to find clarity and start to uncover what makes you unique, then this episode is for you. 
     
    What You’ll Learn:
    What “secret sauce skills” means (1:27) How to conquer your limiting beliefs about yourself (2:47) Why you should never give up the search to find your path (4:00) How you can start to find clarity and identify your unique talents (5:31)  
    Favorite Quotes:
    It is impossible that you don't have a secret sauce. Every single person does. The most common belief that high achievers have is that ‘I'm not good enough’. So if you're experiencing this, I want you to know that it's normal, but it doesn't mean it's true.  I've worked with so many people who felt like they were doing all of these things, trying to figure out what the right path is, but there was always this unsettled feeling that there was something else. If you are worried that you might not be that talented, or maybe you don't really have secret sauce transferable skills, or you're not really that unique or special, that is just a lie we get trapped in.

    EP 177: Cultivate Financial Abundance with Guest Expert Joyce Marter

    EP 177: Cultivate Financial Abundance with Guest Expert Joyce Marter

    Do you feel like your relationship with money is a source of stress or anxiety in your life?  
     
    We all have a money story. It’s the story you tell yourself about your relationship with money and whether or not you have enough of it. The problem is that the story you’ve been telling yourself could be just that…a story.
     
    What if the story you’re telling yourself is false? 
     
    Our money story begins with the experiences that we had in our childhood. If you lived a life of scarcity, you’re likely carrying those same fears and uncertainties into adulthood. But, that past experience doesn’t have to be your lifelong narrative about money. 
     
    What if you had the power to change it? 
     
    Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake welcomes Joyce Marter, a licensed psychotherapist, entrepreneur, national public speaker, and mental health thought leader. She is the founder of Urban Balance (a national outpatient mental health company) and the author of The Financial Mindset Fix: A Mental Fitness Program for an Abundant Life. 
     
    In this episode, you’ll learn how to identify the money story that you grew up with in order to help you understand how you think about money. You’ll hear some tried and true principles that you can use to change your money story, offering you a new money mindset that can actually change your perspectives. You’ll also hear personal experiences about the value of investing in yourself, how it can help you gain an appreciation and understanding of who you are, and how you can translate your skillset into more financial abundance and greater fulfillment in your life.
     
    Your beliefs about money may very well be what’s keeping you from the abundant, happy, fulfilling life that you're looking for.  
     
    What You’ll Learn:
    The connection between money and mental health (7:30) How asking for help when you need it can lead to more prosperity (10:26) Breaking the cycle of post-traumatic financial trauma (17:33) Understanding the “flow” of money (23:36) How to create your own financial advisory board (32:38) Why fulfilling your responsibility to yourself also benefits your children (46:36)  
    Favorite Quotes:
    I saw early on in my practice that as my clients were making progress in therapy, they started to earn more money. And I was like, why is this happening? We're not even talking about money. And it didn't matter if we were working on depression, anxiety, addictions, stress or relationship issues. They were coming in reporting raises and promotions and starting their own businesses. And I realized it's because we're always working on underlying self worth in therapy. - Joyce As we embrace our worth, we put ourselves out in the world differently, with more confidence, a willingness to fail, a willingness to expand our comfort zones, and to negotiate. And that has a financial return. -Joyce We unconsciously recreate what's familiar until we become aware and we choose something better. -Joyce When we're looking at our careers and our lives, we're looking at it from a very black and white limited perspective. We research online and we go, ‘oh, that thing doesn't work for me’ instead of actually saying who am I? What am I gifted at? What am I passionate about doing in the world? And then how do I figure out how to make money at it? -Blake Our personal and professional success are two sides of the same coin. And as we work on ourselves, it can transform our life holistically, not only professionally, or financially, but spiritually and relationally as well. -Joyce Anybody who has a successful career has coaches, participates in courses or trainings and advances themselves.

    EP 176: Editing Your Resume Won’t Help Change Industries

    EP 176: Editing Your Resume Won’t Help Change Industries

    If you’re updating your resume right now in the hopes that it will lead you to something better, then it’s time to hear the hard truth…
     
    It’s likely that you’re only perpetuating a cycle of feeling stuck.
     
    People looking for change too often jump straight to updating their resumes. But, if you’re looking to change careers or industries, updating your resume is NOT the answer and will only lead you to feeling stuck.
     
    Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake reveals why an updated resume won’t fix the problems responsible for your career dissatisfaction. But, there is a proven path if you want to understand you’re unique skills and find more alignment in your life and work. 
     
    In this episode, you’ll learn the decision-making criteria she uses in order to know if a resume update is enough, and how to know if what you’re looking for is a more holistic approach. You’ll gain deeper insight into your level of career satisfaction, and hear what the most responsible, right next step might be if you want to reclaim your power in the process. 
     
    What You’ll Learn:
    When a simple resume update won’t help you (1:32) Why you have to understand your level of job satisfaction (2:21) The repercussions when you have a lack of clarity about what you want (3:22) The most responsible thing you can do to mitigate risk in your job search (4:40) Are you choosing the path of anxiety or the proven path to reclaiming your power? (6:37)  
    Favorite Quotes:
    Most of the time, people think that a resume update is the first or the only solution they need. And that is actually what keeps them stuck. -Blake Updating your resume is not going to help you if you can't get past the first interview. -Blake Seeking help and guidance to understand where you are, where you're headed, and what optimal paths you have to get where you want to go, is the most responsible thing you can do. -Blake A proven path and the ability to take the power back in your life is priceless. -Blake

    EP 175: She Feared Investing in Herself & Not Succeeding (Maureen’s Story)

    EP 175: She Feared Investing in Herself & Not Succeeding (Maureen’s Story)

    Have you ever known in your gut that you should do something, but your fear of the unknown holds you back? 
     
    Do you feel like your case is unique and worry that if you invest in yourself, you might not get the results you’re looking for? 
     
    If there’s one thing we know to be true from the clients we’ve helped, it’s this: It’s time to stop overthinking and choose change. 
     
    Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake welcomes Maureen to tell her story. Like so many women you’ve heard in our client success stories, she wasn’t sure at first that career coaching could help her. But something told her that it was time to make an investment in herself. And today, she’s here to share how career coaching has changed her life for the better. 
     
    In this episode, you’ll learn where Maureen started and the fears she was experiencing prior to joining the program. She explains what convinced her to finally make the investment in herself and to get in the driver's seat of her life and career. She shares the lessons she’s learned, how she applies them to her daily life and decision-making process, and how the program has changed her understanding of what she truly desires out of life. 
     
    What You’ll Learn:
    Where the journey began for Maureen (2:47) The root cause of the fear she was experiencing (8:54) Regaining control after spiraling out (15:26) What the program taught her about what she really wants out of life (21:03)  
    Favorite Quotes:
    If you are willing to invest in yourself, you will get exactly what you want out of the program. It's ultimately up to you. You're the driver of it. -Maureen Even now, I don't have perfect weeks, I don't have perfect days. But what I do have now is the clarity and the wherewithal to recognize that and say, ‘Okay, this is happening. This is how I'm going to get back on track. This is how I need to get back to my foundations and schedule and routine to get back to where I need to be’. -Maureen I know I just needed to reach out, ask for help, and lean on others to get the help advice and direction that I really was missing and needed. Together, we all can help each other and get to where we want to be and live our best, most amazing, happiest lives.  -Maureen  I felt like my situation was unique, like I was the only person that was drowning in work and not believing in myself and just feeling stuck. Coming into this program and meeting all the other amazing women, now I know I'm not alone. -Maureen

    EP 174: Confidently Speak Your Mind & Gain Respect

    EP 174: Confidently Speak Your Mind & Gain Respect

    If you feel unhappy or powerless at work and in life, it all boils down to one reason.
     
    It’s because you aren't actively participating in creating what you want.
     
    The power to change things starts with using your voice. 
     
    Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake helps you shed the fear of feeling disrespectful, rude,  or like you’re not a team player at the thought of speaking up and putting your thoughts and ideas out there. 
     
    In this episode, you’ll learn how to stop feeling afraid and start leveraging your voice to earn respect in your life and in your workplace. You’ll hear about the risks of not being seen, heard, and respected when you fail to speak up for yourself. You’ll also learn the 4 ways you can most effectively use your voice and how to prepare for these types of conversations. 
     
    If you’ve been trying to find the courage to speak up more in meetings or you just want to say something without seeming rude, then this episode if for you.
     
    It’s time to speak up and stop diminishing the importance of your voice.
     
    What You’ll Learn:
    What people misunderstand about what we do on The Bridge to Fulfillment (1:59) The real risks and costs of not speaking up (3:28) 4 key tenants to master using your voice (5:21) The most important thing to understand before starting the conversation (9:22)  
    Favorite Quotes:
    I see talented women getting physically sick because of the stress, anxiety and frustration they're keeping trapped in their bodies. Helping women transition into new roles isn't what I do, it's a byproduct or a benefit of the work. If your life is led from a place of fear, instead of a place of opportunity, you will always be looking at sharing your perspective as “risky”, when in fact not sharing is actually the risk. Why do we end up unhappy in our lives or feel like we’re powerless to create what we want? Because we aren't active participants in creating what we want.

Blake is AMAZING and full of WISDOM!

Absolutely love Blake and her podcast. She shares so much wisdom—emotional intelligence about work, life, and living a holistically successful life. Highly recommend this podcast.

MFair14 ,

Highly Recommend!

I used this podcast to gain insight to Blake’s approach and to hear what her clients had to say about their experience as I was deciding to join the program. I found these episodes to be enlightening and encouraging as I made my decision! The Bridge to Fulfillment program changed my life and I am beyond grateful for all of the guidance I gained throughout these past few months. I love being able to continue to learn and grow through listening to the episodes each week. Highly recommend this podcast and the Bridge to Fulfillment program!!

Megan__Nicole ,

If you are looking for fulfillment, this podcast is for you!

If there is anyone out there who is unsure they can create the life THEY want and is feeling unfulfilled in their career, THIS is the podcast for you. I came across Blake’s podcast through a LinkedIn search and started listening to her and immediately felt a connection to her story. Her approach is unlike any other coaches out there. She peels back the onion and gets to the root cause and really helps transform what you believe to be true and shows you that your beliefs aren’t always reality. After listening to a few episodes of her podcast, I enrolled in The Bridge to Fulfillment and it was literally life changing for me. I feel like a completely new person after going through it. I thought I would have to make sacrifices to get to the life that I wanted but the truth is, you don’t! She truly empowers women and shows them in order to have the life that you want, you must define it first. Her approach is thoughtful and direct. Please, take the time to listen to her podcast. It’s truly eye opening, inspiring and you will see you are not alone!
