Most people, particularly women and women of color, simply aren’t comfortable advocating for themselves at work. Maybe it’s because of how you were raised, or perhaps it’s generational. Or maybe you just don’t want to rock the boat. So, you wait…. hoping that one day, you’ll be recognized and get that raise or be given that promotion. The question …
 
What do you dream for yourself and your life? A hassle-free day at work, fewer headaches, or simply a weekend free from checking emails or responding to work-related text messages? Perhaps even a job you actually enjoy and feel energized by (or does that seem too good to be true)? Those goals are really just the tip of the iceberg of what’s possibl…
 
Finally laying your head down on a pillow at night should be a welcome relief. But for many working women, it’s become a place where our worries gather. Your body tosses & turns while your head feels like a circus of anxiety. If you’ve ever found yourself struggling to fall asleep, or you wake up in the middle of the night with your mind racing, yo…
 
Sometimes life gives you lemons, and other times, it delivers them by the truckload. When the unexpected happens, and it feels like we’re just not catching any breaks, that’s a good indication that you’re ripe for a transformation.

If you’ve often felt pulled toward making a career change, but think you’re just too deep in your current line of work to risk transitioning, you’re not alone. For many women, mid-career transitions often feel too risky, but the truth is that the skills and experiences you’ve already gained in your position are actually adding more value to what yo…
 
What if, instead of constantly feeling overwhelmed, you were finally able to breathe a sigh of relief and celebrate your success? What if, rather than never feeling like you have enough time to do something just for yourself, you actually had “me” time to refresh and rejuvenate? Imagine a life where you finally felt like you were in control, you co…
 
Do you ever feel like you could be doing so much more, but your company just isn’t seeing your potential? Feeling undervalued or underutilized is an issue many women are experiencing. Perhaps you feel like your skills or efforts are constantly being overlooked. It leaves you second-guessing what you’re capable of and questioning whether you’re in t…
 
Sitting and hoping for change is a familiar story for so many women. In the rare moments you have to daydream on your morning commute, or between leaving the office for the day and picking the kids up from school, hope feels like the only thing you have time for. That hope, unfortunately, is part of the reason why only 14% of C-suite leaders in the…
 
You work hard to perfect the act of juggling everything in your life and career.

You have a good job. On paper, everything about your life looks like success—you’re making a great income, performing at the top of your field, and quickly climbing the ladder. The only problem is that you don’t feel happy, but the thought of change has you feeling scared of what you might have to sacrifice. So instead, you keep trudging along, suc…
 
Often, we feel like we need to settle in our careers. We think that if we have ONE desirable thing, we can't possibly ask for more (OR that we have to trade one for the other). For example, if you already have the flexibility you need, you might be afraid to reach for the growth you desire out of the fear of sacrificing what you already have. But w…
 
When we feel unfulfilled or undervalued in our careers, it can be easy to believe that our job is the problem. More often than not, it’s actually a lack of confidence that comes from not knowing how to advocate for ourselves that is really holding us back. Gaining the knowledge and skills to advocate for ourselves is the key to escaping the endless…
 
Most people believe that in order to make a big, meaningful career change, you have to go back to school or start over all the way at the bottom. Not only is that a myth, but it also has the potential to be a costly mistake. Transitioning in your career isn’t about spending money on another degree and starting over. In fact, it’s actually a lot mor…

When you know it’s time to make a change in your life and career, it’s inevitable that questions begin to arise. Is this actually the right program for me? Is this the right person to help me?

Happiness is something we all strive for in life. Unfortunately, with busy careers to juggle and a lack of clarity about what we really want, we often feel like our lives don’t meet our definition of “happiness”.

The events that take place in our lives happen in order to teach us something, and when we possess the courage to surrender to life’s lessons, we gain valuable wisdom that directs us towards our purpose.

How important is self-care in your life? For most women, juggling the responsibilities of work, family, and relationships leaves little time for ourselves.

We hear a lot about work-life balance, but how many of us are actually living it?

How often do you think about the long-term impact of the choices you make everyday?

Habits have a greater impact on your life than you realize. But, when you think abo…

When you’re just embarking on the career phase of your life, oftentimes you don’t really feel like you have much control.

In today’s episode, you’ll learn how to overcome…
