Shapeshifting and the Toll It Takes EP: 102

podcast Aug 31, 2022

When you hear the word shapeshifting, what comes to mind? Is it the mythical definition of being able to change into a different shape or form at will? Or can the term be applied to something more realistic – and a little closer to home?

Today on The Inside Story Podcast, we’re talking about becoming different people in the various relationships we are in, or shape-shifting to become the person others expect us to be. It’s not an uncommon phenomenon, but something we should all be aware of and avoid happening.

Tune in to this episode as I share with you:

  •  Why it’s important to acknowledge that we might be in fact, shapeshifting in our relationships
  • My own experiences of taking the easy route and allowing myself to conform to what society expects of me
  • The different ways you could be shapeshifting – without you knowing it!
  • What we should be doing instead, for us to live lighter and shine bright for others

Here’s my challenge for you today:...

The Key to Winning the Internet EP: 097

podcast Jul 27, 2022

With so many social media platforms today and an insane number of people trying to get everyone’s attention, how do you actually cut through the noise and get noticed?

In today’s episode, I share my thoughts on how you can win the internet. You have to have a certain mindset, understanding, and a regular, intentional practice that’s repeatedly overlooked, but should be at the top of your strategy if you want to stand out.

Listen in as I discuss:

  • Why it doesn’t take millions of followers to win the internet and build your business
  • What to do when nobody reacts or comments on your social media posts – and why giving up is not the answer
  • Understanding the two-way street that is the internet – and what you should start doing today
  • Practical tips on how you should be using your time on the internet
  • Why storytelling is a key factor in all of this (surprise!!)

We often overthink our social media strategies and forget the basics. Realizing that...

Closing the Confidence Gap for Women with Jenny Ward EP: 096

podcast Jul 20, 2022

In the work that I do, I help women dig out their story and amplify their visibility as they share it. But far too often, I find that women stay small and limit the stories they share because they’re afraid of being judged as having too much to say.

As a recruiter matching people and jobs, Jenny Ward found the same to be true. And wanting to do more for women seeking to grow professionally, she intentionally became a career coach to help “purpose-driven women finally get the career they want and the money they deserve”.

Jenny shared so many meaningful insights, and I invite you to join us as we talk about:

  • Shifting from being a corporate recruiter to becoming a career and transition coach helping women tell their professional stories
  • Battling imposter syndrome as she worked to advocate for her own coaching practice, and breaking free from her own limiting beliefs
  • Confidence gap and how women suffer not from lack of confidence, but because they think they need to...
