    Chief Soul Officer of Your Life, Shelley Paxton

    Chief Soul Officer of Your Life, Shelley Paxton

    This week we empower ourselves to find a connection to our soul and our own truth as we live our dreams. Shelley Paxton, Chief Soul Officer and author of Soulbbatical, joins us for a beautiful conversation about how learning to “surrender” is an important aspect of true success. Success in life should be measured from the inside, by listening to and following your soul. This conversation will begin to give us the tools we need that can lead to becoming successful versus being “success-empty”.

    Shelley Paxton spent 26 years as a highly regarded marketing and advertising executive stewarding some of the world’s most iconic brands like Harley-Davidson, Visa, McDonald’s, and AOL. In 2016 she walked away from the corporate world to nurture her soul and discover her purpose. She christened herself Chief Soul Officer and called the journey her Soulbbatical. It did more than change her life, it became her calling.

    In 2018, Shelley opened the doors of her own company with the mission to liberate the souls of leaders and organizations, by inspiring them to realize their greatest purpose and potential. Shelley’s intention is to help her clients discover, as she did, a way of being that is aligned with their authentic self (soul) and deeply rooted in a commitment to living and leading courageously. As a certified professional coach, she works with individuals, entrepreneurs, and executives at Fortune 100 companies like Lowe’s, Inc. and Mars, Inc.

    (4:50) What does surrender mean to Shelley and we begin our discussion around the power of it.

    (9:50) How can we embrace the idea of surrender without viewing it as a weakness or accepting defeat?

    (13:12) How does Shelley help people to embrace the idea of trust & surrender? She shared with us her own journey to learning how to embrace it.

    (22:00) We discuss about how to “dance with fear”, leaning into it so you can learn to control it.

    (28:40) What expressions/mantras has Shelley found herself embracing more often than others?

    (35:00) How do Shelley’s old identities (like CMO at Harley) find their way into her current one as Chief Soul Officer?

    (44:50) A discussion about understanding who you are, at your core, and learn to love what you discover.

    (49:30) Chatting about “becoming Shelley Paxton” and talk about her successes and what the future holds for Soulbattical.

    Inspirational and Expansive Life “ing” it with Allyson Hernandez

    Inspirational and Expansive Life “ing” it with Allyson Hernandez

    This week’s conversation with Allyson Hernandez starts with a discussion about her new book, Ballad of Dreams. From there she shares her life experiences, the highs and lows, but also what it means to be a “multi-passionate creative” person. We learn to shed fears and hesitation and jump into the passions that bring us joy in life. We also touch upon the importance of giving ourselves space and self-care while living our best creative lives. Learning to balance ourselves when creating and bringing ourselves forth into the world is just as important as taking that first leap.

    Allyson is a multi-passionate creative entrepreneur. What does that even mean? It means she is not just one thing. None of us are.

    She is an author, Executive, Career & Life coach, actor, singer, composer, Keynote Speaker, and mom.

    Her debut novel that originated as a Musical, Ballad of Dreams, was published in January 2022 thanks to New Degree Press! You can get your paperback or ebook copy on Amazon and barnesandnoble.com today here: https://www.allysonhernandez.net/book.

    She also founded AH Coaching Group, LLC, to work with rock-star leaders to embrace their extra, develop their leadership muscle, crush their creative and professional goals, and turn their dreams into reality. She believes, when people are their most authentic selves, they are the most successful in leadership and in life.

    (5:38) What does Allyson most identify with in her life and what does it mean for her as a “multi-passionate creative”?

    (7:49) She shares her experience expanding her footprint in the world through her new novel.

    (12:33) Who are the people she brought into her circle during the early days of writing her musical/novel?

    (17:26) What were some of the obstacles that she had to overcome in those early days?

    (21:13) What are some of the key messages she wanted to share through her novel?

    (25:25) How did she capture the personalities and life experiences that her characters embody? She shares how tapping into her own experiences helped her create the world in her novel.

    (30:15) What does she think her grandmother and aunt, whom the novel is based upon, would feel about her experience writing it.

    (32:15) She shared with us some of her recent successes, like being on the Tamron Hall Show.

    (38:00) What is important and happening in her life “right now”?

    (44:50) Who are the people that Allyson follows and admires? Why?
