    Asking for help: Strength or Weakness with Andrea Hancock

    Asking for help: Strength or Weakness with Andrea Hancock

    Help is one of the greatest gifts we can give or receive. It allows us to offer assistance to others in need and also provides us with an opportunity to receive help when we are in need. However, despite the importance of help, many people are reluctant to ask for help when they need it. This is often because of the stigma that is attached to asking for help. People may feel like they are admitting defeat or admitting that they cannot cope on their own.
    As a result, they may suffer in silence rather than reach out for help. It is important to remember that everyone needs help at some point in their lives, and there is no shame in asking for help when you need it. In fact, asking for help can be a strength, not a weakness. By reaching out for help, you are taking responsibility for your own well-being and demonstrating your commitment to improving your situation. terminologies associated with the whole concept of asking for help can vary depending on culture, context, and individual preferences. Some common terms include: requesting help, seeking help, needing assistance, wanting help, or requiring help. No matter what terminology you use, the most important thing is to reach out for help when you need it. Help is one of the greatest gifts we can give or receive, so don't be afraid to ask for it when you need it.
    This episode features Andrea Hancock, Founder & Director of Business Development at Dexterous Organizing: We help busy people get organized (especially during a major life transition) in a world that is chaotic and hectic. We not only help them create a space that brings peace, control, and calm; we also teach them mindset principles, skills, and habits that help them to internalize strategies that work for them over and over and overcome unhelpful perspectives that prevent growth toward a functional space and productive life. "I help to teach my clients to overcome shame and guilt related to hiring us to help them"

    Why I’m Dedicating An Entire Season to Leadership?

    Why I’m Dedicating An Entire Season to Leadership?

    As a leader, your voice has the power to inspire, educate and effect change.
    So why not use it to your advantage?
    This season, the podcast will focus on leadership, diversity, and social issues. And I know that you have expertise in either similar areas or the intersection of some of my interests. That's why I wanted to share the topics and dates for this season's recordings. These dates were previously sent, but the passing of two of my brothers pushed the whole season back.
    No worries, it will be even better as 2023 approaches.
    These topics are sensitive to some but impactful for all.
    So how does it work? Browse the topics, see if the recording date works for you, and, if you're aligned, click the topic and register.
    There is a registration fee (this is a sponsorship opportunity to support the podcast and production).
    This year, the podcast will stream on YouTube and potentially other platforms.

    So what are you waiting for?
    Register today and let your voice be heard!

Our guest panelists are here to share tips and tools to enhance your leadership skills through the translation of "What'cha Workin With?
    Believe it or not, many of us struggle to answer this question when asked to describe our gifts, experience, and expertise. Professional paths are no longer straight and narrow. They are zig zagish and complete with adversity, tragedy, and triumph. So I ask the question again?

In my poems, I am speaking to myself and other women who feel they are not enough or who may be struggling with their self-image. There was a time that I did not believe that I was gifted. And God revealed to me that He created us all for excellence and gave us all gifts.

    Samantha Sunders, LPC: I help professional women to break free from toxic relationships heal their trauma, rediscover who they are, and live a life they desire.

I also help hundreds of women know exactly how to establish healthy and nourishing relationships after having unhealthy ones.
    I want people to know that I have programs and events that can assist with living a life they desire and establishing healthy & nourishing relationships. I have a weekly email list that provides free tips that can help with learning how to establish healthy relationships and live the life they desire.
