263: Entrepreneur with Shannon Claire

Have you ever thought to yourself, maybe I’m just meant to be an entrepreneur? Me personally, I didn’t until I stepped out and realized what it was about being an employee that made me so unhappy. I need to do my own thing, make my own rules, and have my own impact. Sound familiar?    Shannon Claire has always been a rebel and it’s her out of the box way of thinking that has served her well in the entrepreneurial world. After becoming a teen mom, building a family, having that family torn apart, and finding herself as a business owner, she has a lot to share!   You don’t have to feel shame for wanting more. She felt trapped by her faith in a marriage that was toxic and abusive, but she finally found her way out and is now thriving.   We had an amazing discussion about her journey, the pivots she’s made, and why defiance has served her well.

262: Self-Leadership with Kc Rossi

What do you do after building your own businesses for over 30 years? Share the knowledge with others coming up behind you. That’s exactly what Kc Rossi is doing now. After starting and ending multiple businesses, she realized that she loved helping others to do the same in a way that aligned with their soul purpose.   She’s here today to share why it’s important to actually implement what you’ve learned in courses, life, and business. Self-leadership means you take all the theory that you’ve learned and start to create daily habits that help you make a positive change.   You don’t need someone elses process to get started. Instead align with your own rules and blueprint and become the trendsetter yourself. Fear holds so many of us back, but the best way to beat the fear is to just go ahead and take action.   Listen as Kc chats about our tendency to compare ourselves to others and how that process is actually holding us back. Your soul is unlike anyone else’s, so comparison doesn’t serve you. We’re digging deep today! You definitely won’t want to miss it!   Also, I was recently on Kc’s podcast too! Head here to check it out.   “I am a forever learner and I really ended up on kind of a course carousel taking one certification program after another and really was like what am I going to be when I grow up.” KC Rossi In this episode: [02:36] Welcome to the show, KC! [02:48] KC shares what she does and the magic she puts out in the world. [04:13] The transition to coaching. [06:36] Why she chose the word self-leadership. [09:33] Compare and despair: it doesn’t lead to a flourishing life or business. [11:17] Her view on social media and why she is a fan of digital minimalism. [15:00] I’m thinking about moving off social media and not doing FB ads. [17:59] “Do what lights you up and when it’s not juicy anymore, give yourself permission to pivot.” [18:28] She has a podcast too! Learn more!

I’ve been feeling called to just put some quick words of encouragement out there. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but I do know that sometimes it’s those quick words that get us through! Let me know if these help you!   “You're not granola, you don’t have to put up with the nasty raisins to get the M&M’s you can just have all the M&M’s.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [01:53] Here is my love letter to all of you tired, busy alpha’s. [02:57] Fear is the monster in the corner. [04:48] I thought you might need that little poem at this time in your life. [05:33] This is not you against the world, I am here. [05:53] Together we rise!

260: Momentum with Dr. Michelle Quirk

We’ve all felt the slump that this past year has brought. So many of us have felt stuck. Whether in our jobs, our homes, our workouts, or maybe in our relationships, we’ve felt like things have stopped. When Dr. Michelle Quirk started feeling this, she decided to build some momentum and get moving.    She’s an avid runner and has built a coaching business designed to help professional women to prioritize their well-being through fitness. She knew that if she was feeling that “stuckness” then it was time to do something about it.    How did she move forward? She started evaluating her emotions and why she was feeling the way that she was. Instead of feeling the restlessness that cancelled races started to have on her, she decided to rest in the pause.    Michelle started to refocus and figure out ways that she could alter her normal schedule of events and still create community and connection. She’s now running some virtual challenges and helping women step away from being stuck by starting with bite-sized goals.    It doesn’t matter if you’re on mile 0 or 1000, you have to start somewhere. Listen in to hear all about Michelle’s story, how she’s helping women, and how you can connect with her and start gaining some of your own momentum.    “It’s been a huge thing for me to show that the sport is available to everybody if they want it, and you don’t have to be a certain size or look a certain way.” Dr. Michelle Quirk In this episode: [02:16] Welcome back to the show, Dr. Michelle Quirk! [02:55] Dr. Quirk shares all the amazing things she is doing in the world. [05:47] Listen as Dr. Quirk discusses why she chose the word momentum. [07:33] The pandemic has taken the wind out of so many people’s sails with the loss of connection. [10:42] Dr. Quirk speaks about the whole experience of doing races and how she misses having them on her calendar. [11:26] It might be a good time to embrace the pause and then refocus and figure out why you are doing what you are doing. [13:37] Dr. Quirk shares some virtual challenges they have done. [15:00] Email me if you want to participate in a Doctor Me First 5K Race. [15:40] Dr. Quirk believes you should start with bite-size goals when getting back to exercise or just starting. [17:41] You don’t have to crush it every day; keep your easy runs easy. The first step is putting on your sneakers. [19:22] Thank you for being on the show!

259: Solocast – To All Those Getting Ready To Graduate

I recently had a listener write in and ask me to expand on ways to avoid burnout, before it even happens. Graduation is just around the corner for many med students and one thing your degree doesn’t cover is the effects of burnout and how to avoid it.    When I received the request to go over this topic from Taylor, I thought it was an amazing idea. So, my tips for avoiding burnout or if you’ve already beaten it, keeping it at bay!   First, get your stuff straight now. Write out how you’re feeling, your general thoughts, anything that’s going on right now for you. Write it all out and do this for a week, a month, two months. Don’t wait to start this process!    Then start where you’re at. Meet your basic needs today. Think Maslow here. If you have basic needs that aren’t being met, get them met! You can’t do better for yourself and others if your basic needs are still outstanding.    Next, learn the difference between thoughts, facts, and feelings. There IS a difference between these and knowing the difference allows you to take better stock of your mindset day in and day out.    Last, get really comfortable with fear and how to talk to it. I mean that literally. We all have fears, but your fears don’t get a voice in your decisions, your life, or your needs. Learn how to put fear in its place and to keep moving and striding forward and you’ll find so much more fulfillment.    When you have a better idea of your own personal needs and how they’re affected by the profession you’ve chosen, you’ll be steps closer to fighting off the clutches of burnout! Have questions? Reach out! I’m only an email away.   “We have gotten so good at delayed gratification that we don’t even realize when it slips around our neck and becomes a noose.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [03:04] Here are my five top tips for staying out of burnout. [03:16] My first tip is to get your stuff straight now. [04:13] Tip #2: Start where you are at now, meet your basic needs today. [05:49] You must learn the difference between thoughts, facts and feelings. [10:16] Tip #4: What is your dream life? [12:19] My final tip is to learn to have a conversation with fear. [15:18] Let me know if you have topics you want me to do solocasts on.

258: Clarity with Kelli Thompson

It’s amazing how vulnerable being clear with others can make you feel. Think about it. How often do you tell people how you truly feel? How often do you speak out with clarity and confidence about what you need? Kelli Thompson is a leadership coach who is passionate about helping women find their clarity and confidence.    After spending years in corporate America she realized that her passion lay in helping women make it into the rooms where decisions are made. Not as the “token” HR representative but as an impactful member of the conversation.    She’s joining me to chat about why clarity is so important to her and why she has made it her mission to help other women find theirs. Because when women advance, they’re much more likely to reach back and help others as well. Listen as she shares more about her background and experience and what she’s doing to help more women reach new heights in business and leadership. Stop climbing the wrong career ladders using outdated information! Take a page out of Kelli’s book and change your mindset.    Because our need to rise to the top and be more productive and ear more recognition is one of the main causes of burnout. But there IS a better way!    “The more clear I got, the more successful I was, the more clear I got, the happier I was, and the more clear I got, the more money I made.” Kelli Thompson In this episode: [02:16] Welcome to the show, Kelli! [02:29] Kelli shares a little about herself and what she is doing now. [04:37] Women believe that if they want to be successful, they need to act like their male counterparts. [07:15] What causes burnout is the pressure to conform. [10:04] Only 23% of women are senior executives; something has to give. [13:25] Listen as Kelli shares why she picked the word Clarity. [17:13] Why she focuses so much on women. [20:23] It’s not enough to fill a chair in the room where decisions are made. [23:15] “At the end of the day, someone is counting on your unique calling.” [26:01] Kelli discusses her new group program that starts March 23rd called The Clarity & Confidence Leadership Masterclass. [27:09] Thank you for being on the show!
