"Josh Ali says mind seems to have taken a nose dive this month. You might want to see how yours is doing. Everyone knows what a credit score is, he writes. But social credit scores are new. They're the latest corporate import from communist China, where government and big business monitor every citizen's social views and statements and they're the latest form of cancel culture in America. As corporate monopolies and left team up to shut down speech. They don't like and force their political agenda on America. For those who still believe in free speech in the first Amendment, this is the time to take a stand. Repeat that line from Josh Holly's great column.

I raised a challenge to the presidential elect tours from Pennsylvania after that state conducted the election and violation of its state constitution. Maybe you agreed with me, he said, Maybe you don't. Whatever your view, Corporate America's rushed to cancel those it dislikes should trouble you. In my case, it started with leftist politicians demanding I resign. Representing the views of my constituents and leading a Democratic debate on the floor of the Senate taking that Q a corporate publishing house, then canceled a book and it had asked me to write. Ironically enough, the book is about political censorship. The most powerful by the most powerful corporations in America, and it will be published Red Nery is publishing Josh Holly's book. Now Corporate America is canceling my political event, she says, because two parties are apparently one too many for their taste. It will get worse. The tech titans have already booted dozens of conservatives off social media, and if they have their way, half the House Republican conference will be expelled from conch from Congress.

Who's helping to transform the publishing industry joining me. On the show with andrea albright l. andrea is a serial entrepreneur as she is publishing mogul. She's published twenty six bucks and she's helping other authors to find the same success. And i could say so much about andrea talk about her latest book which is visionary boss so andrea. I think it's time that you share your advice in your journey with us. Welcome welcome to women worldwide. Thank you so much gear drive for having me. I am thrilled to be here. I love what you're up to supporting women worldwide and. Thank you for having me. Your welcome will twenty. Six books is huge. So i've written a few books. I i know what. That's like an absolutely amazed and what you're doing. So maybe you can start off just by sharing a little bit about this past two serial entrepreneur punching absolutely while i started in corporate america right out of college and i had a nervous breakdown. I learned early on that making money without her business and meaning didn't fulfill me and went and started my own company. I became an entrepreneur. When i was twenty six years so i've been on this journey for a while. I decided i wanted to help people get and get fit and my mentor at the time said well you have to write a book in order to stand out as an authority and so i wrote my first book in two thousand six and i remember being so terrified that no one was going to read it. Only my mom was going to buy it. I could sound. But i said you know if i can help one percent then. It's worth it. So i released that book and it went on to create thousands of success stories around the world. People would write to me and say your book saved my life. I was going to kill myself. And then i found your book and now i love my body i love myself i love my else and so it was messages like that. That kept me going and everyone said fitness and weight loss is way too competitive. You can never compete. But this thing called. Youtube came along and i was like what's you so i was really part of that. Social media revolution back in two thousand six two thousand seven and because of social media. I was able to reach my audience. I learned internet marketing. And every time. I would publish a book for myself. I would use marketing to bring people to my website. I eventually got on the front page of google. Very important key. Words like weight loss. Secret and flash forward. I wrote over twenty five bucks and health and fitness. I reached over ten million views on youtube. One hundred thousand. Facebook fans and women's health and fitness magazine. Put me on the cover of their twenty first anniversary edition. So that's really what defined my authority as a thought leader in women's health. And i saw that. So many authors are struggling to get their audience to pay attention to their book. And that's when i became publisher i started beverly hills publishing so that i can help other authors to publish books in ninety days and reach their audience through marketing in ninety days. Tat's unbelievable so from somebody who works with traditional publishers. Absolutely unheard of now. Isn't it interesting that you had some push-back around you of the competition and you know you even yourself said a. maybe only. My mom will read my book now. Is that something. Do office come to you. And do you find those same topic. So i guess yours or challenges that they think they're going to face as absolutely being visionary is both a blessing and a curse because we can see the future. We can see a possibility for humanity. I believe that anyone who wants to write a book is truly coming from that place of being visionary and seeing something that they want to share with the world but then the curse is that we doubt ourselves. Who am i to bryn this vision on the planet who am i to tell society and culture that we can do better and so it comes with that inferiority complex

After Capitol Riot, GOP Faces Reckoning with Corporate America
"The fall off last week's riots. On capitol hill has been far reaching disney best. Buy lift joining a growing group companies. That have stopped political donations to those specifically who disputed the election results. This is an area. It seems like there's been a slow creep of corporate america into the political fray and here we are in for some of them. I imagined there. They were asked by their employees asked by their constituents to make such move
Companies Get Political
"Lee newman ceo of advertising agency. Mullen low you ask. Thank you for joining us So the first thing. I wanted to ask you. Was this change that we've been seeing in. How companies are handling kind of the political events. That are happening right now. I mean in the past. I guess in the before time. Say a couple years ago from what i understood. It was always sort of conventional wisdom for companies to kind of stay out of politics. I think that's exactly right while they're there may have been things happening behind the scenes and certainly political donations and watkiss to the public facing. I generally speaking brands were. Were trying to remain neutral and stay out of politics. I'm wondering if there was like a point this year when you started seeing a lot of companies coming to you about how to approach politics I'm wondering was it around the the murder of george floyd yet that was a watershed moment. Because i think that there was a growing realization corporate america that you couldn't simply opt out of the conversation that silence was Complicity and you had to say something. And i had vice that we were giving over and over again as whatever you say should be backed up by actions in terms of what you're doing within the walls of your company but also How you're given. And i think that that's carrying over to this past week across a broad spectrum of companies. What was it about that moment. I guess that caused this shift because all these companies i mean there were the ones like nike which you know made a lot of sense given colin kaepernick and things like that but also there were brands like i remember gushers fruit snacks. You know they came out with the statement and everybody kind of chuckled about it but you know they came out saying like we support black lives matter like this company wouldn't be what it is without black consumers and workers I mean it seemed like all these companies were all kind of stepping out in a way that at least to me it seemed like a new like a new thing absolutely and i'd like to start with a positive and believe that there was a genuine desire to create change and so i still all these years in the business world than i still start with optimism there but it's not. It's a good thing. I feel like you know that's it. I'm glad to hear that. Visit the world of businesses not always compete a little cynical. Yes please. yeah. And i don't think that's the only reason i mean i think it's also a direct reflection of the political views of of the leadership and then the third thing which is really important and should not be underestimated is the power of employees to put pressure on a company to use their influence. And there's a talent war going on and when the real heart of a company a talent of a company raises. Its voice in unison management. Oftentimes reacts to that and then the last reason talk about is people's ability really search and know how companies are behaving how they're donated and businesses are aware of that. I think that the last point businesses knowing that that people are paying attention Is driving a lot of the behavior. We've seen most recently in the past week. Were you surprised to see so many companies kind of speaking up in the last. I guess week or so. Did it surprise you to see so many companies kind of coming out with statements. It did surprise me and surprise me to see a lot of companies that I would view as as as more conservative actually using their influence to to make a stand. Why do you think those companies did that will. In a lot of cases. I feel like Companies were doing it out of a business. Need you know on wall. Street loves stability and what we saw. This past week was the opposite of stability. And and so i think that a lot of ways these companies felt like they were protecting our democracy
Companies target lawmakers who tried to block Electoral College
"Or joining a long list of corporations stopping political donations, especially two Republican lawmakers, who rejected President elect Joe Biden's victory in the Electoral College. We take a deep dive on that with CBS news political correspondent Ed O'Keefe. On Monday, Hallmark Cards Company asked for a refund from Republican senators Josh Holly and Roger Marshall, who received a combined $12,000. That company says that the senator's decision to vote to reject states certified electoral college results last week do not reflect our company's values. American Express told employees Monday. They're withholding donations from lawmakers who voted to subvert the presidential election results and disrupt the peaceful transition of power. Other major firms like Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Facebook, Google and Microsoft are going farther, saying that would hold all political contributions from members of both parties. Chemical giant Dow doing self or at least the next two years. It's sending a ripple effect across all these campaigns because Donald Trump is radioactive. Leslie Sanchez is a Republican consultant and CBS news political analyst and said the corporate giving ban could hurt many GOP candidates. The question campaigns are asking themselves is how long is this going to last? Can they separate their campaign from the larger Republican Party and the or that it has, But since it is said that, based on her conversations with top government relations executives they giving ban is likely on Lee temporary, six months and nine months down the line. They expect those dollars to start flowing again. These are gonna be based on individual relationships and not necessarily the party as a whole. CBS News Political contributor. Robby Mook, a Democratic Party consultant, thinks this is a bigger shift. This is part of a larger reckoning we're seeing in our society, you know, employees of these companies really care about what their leadership is doing about what happens to this Pac money that they're donating, and we saw how this was transformational and sports. And entertainment, and I think we're going to start to see it in corporate America as it relates to politics as well. Corporate America is also facing pressure when it comes to hiring President Trump's current and former spokespeople. White House press secretaries often go on to get high profile jobs in the private sector. President Obama's landed at McDonald's Amazon and United Airlines. Forbes magazine editor Randall Lane argues that those that spoke for Mr Trump will face a different landscape. He says. If top companies hire them, his magazine quote will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. There is no way that we can look at the readers and say these are people we can trust in the private sector now to give that accurate information.

Health venture led by Amazon, Berkshire, JPMorgan is ending
"The joint healthcare venture between three of america's most powerful companies amazon j. p. morgan chase and berkshire hathaway is disbanding after three years high profile. Ceo's jeff bezos cheney diamond and warren buffett had teamed up to tackle one of corporate. America's thorniest problems the high and rising cost of employee healthcare and the initial announcement of this partnership was dramatic shares of other healthcare companies tumbled on fears about how these leaders might find a way to make it all less expensive and more efficient in june twenty eighteen. Becky quick spoke to warren buffett and jamie diamond about their shared. Goals are water of ideas out there. A lot of things will be done better. We know the fraud. The administrative 'cause we overuse underuse of of of various drugs and specialized procedures. We know the end of life is often costs. Far more than should and is far more painful should be So there's so many and big data there's so many things to do but the goal is better satisfaction for employees and eventually we can learn a lot of things and maybe help inform america. How we can improve some of these things. Have you heard from aaron place. Yeah i i Addressed a group of about one hundred and thirty or so of the various. Cfo's from all our subs Just a couple of days ago and and they're very interested in the subject and the interesting thing is as we went around interviewing Large number of perspective. ceo's we didn't run into one. That didn't think that improvement was both possible At important nobody disagreed with the the mission. The importance of it or or Feasible only but it's also a very very tough nut to crack havens initial. Ceo was dr a tool galante new yorker staff writer and surgeon. You've heard him on this podcast several times. He's an expert. In how complicated and tangled the american healthcare system is. It's a maze of doctors. Shirts drugmakers guerande. Step down as ceo to become chairman this past spring as the covid nineteen pandemic grabbed the day to day. Attention of the medical community. As haven shudders most of the firms fifty seven employees are expected to be reassigned to amazon berkshire hathaway and j. p. morgan chase. Here's joe kernan. W toward toward healthcare is hard. It's hard to solve health care. I don't care who you are. I don't care if you're talking about. Yeah i don't care if you're warren buffett jeff. I just hope it's not that you know what we lost a couple of million dollars. We'd better shut this down on those three guys. Diamond was that all three of the companies. Were doing some of their own things That they had taken out of the story tapeworm. That's really tough to when you're talking about more than seventeen percent of gdp versus five percent back in one thousand nine hundred sixty san right james warren buffett and jeff bezos saying. Forget it. we can't fix this problem then. Yeah i mean we talked about how many pay three years this is going to be it. This is going to be. Our problems are over right hi talked. I talked about this on the phone yesterday. Try to understand what happened. And i think becky's right i don't think it was that they shut it down entirely because they were losing money or something. I think in many ways it was designed. I don't want to say it was designed to fail but it was it was it was designed number challenging way which was the big lesson of this was actually insurance is local. These health systems are local. And trying to do it on a national basis with with employees in all different types of locality. all kinds of different systems may very. Well be too hard. I think a lot of the lessons were learned. Have been implemented are being implemented at j.p morgan in areas like new york in columbus ohio. For example. i think you're seeing what amazon's doing remarkably actually in seattle. They're their program therefrom -ployees which also include warehouse workers not just not just executive employees. So i think there are some things that will come out of this but obviously not Not the big headlines that that had been expected three years ago when this began. Let's say amazon has rolled out a lot of different initiatives over the last year or two. I was looking at a store yesterday. That kind of laid out some of those things just the idea of amazon health. The they do it for their employees as you mentioned andrew and i think they have thoughts of of selling that other companies too so i i don't think we're going to see the end of any of these companies or any of these actors trying to get healthcare costs. I guess it's just a question of how you do that. And you're right. It is local. You you've got to do this on a local basis but healthcare costs are are not going down. You know they rise faster than inflation. It's a. it's a huge huge issue More than seventeen percent of gdp and we do have to continue to try and find a way to tackle this
"corporate america" Discussed on Trill MBA Show - For Black Women Surviving Corporate America
"Like alesia. But the funniest part was i love my team so then the abm on my team she comes in she goes I would just like to say that. I am not true to this.

But i think you you carry them both really nicely and i think that's why you're shows so healthy engaging so shout out to my group therapists hegi a white woman. The truth white woman. I've ever met in my life and out of outside but like peggy. So the rules for therapy were bring your truth and give yourself grace. Those are only two rules. That's it that's like the secret sauce of your show. Yeah yeah well you know i am. That's what we have to have in all spaces in all situations we find ourselves in because it reminds us in grounds in humanity.

Are You Bringing Emotional Intelligence Into the Workplace?
"So how are you putting your emotional intelligence hat on your e. I hat in all of your interactions whether your word with friends with your family and how much are you. Harnessing your emotions. Well this is the perfect segue to my special guest today. Joining me on the show is andrea hoven. Andrea is the co founder and learning at. Og lice. laugh she's also a certified coach and a speaker and she helps professionals to hard as their emotions injury. I it is so nice to have you on my show. Welcome thank you. Thank you for having me. It's really wonderful to be here in. Share a little of what i know with women worldwide. We're happy happy because emotional. Intelligence is really important you know for any person professionally and personally is being able to get a handle on your own emotions so that you can work with others and that is something that you're doing quite a bit and before we dive into e i in all of your great work. Maybe you can just share a little bit about how you got to wanting to go down. Career path of emotional intelligence in helping professionals in coaching. Yeah sure it's the kind of a long circuitous journey like most are bank But i i started my career in corporate america and climbed the ranks as a sales manager and became a regional vice president with a big thirty million dollar territory and found that the part of that job that i loved the most was training people to be the best they could be. And when i could see light bulbs go on and see that. That was magic for me. And so that that led me down a path wanting to do that work more often And so eventually became responsible for job skills training at the organization. I worked at and found that my passion fell into the leadership development and coaching area. Where i work with people so that we could have more of those breakthrough moments and insights together. That help them do the things they wanted to do. And be the person's and people that they wanted to be so that's That's what led me to get certified as a coach to work as a coach to leave that organization and work independently for a while And and realizing along the way that emotional intelligence really is such a foundational set of skills that set the stage for so much more of what we wanna do as leaders or as people or as of families etc. You have to have your ability to recognize what you feel some self awareness around what's going on inside so that like you said you can harness their power and their wisdom of ear emotions to help you accomplish what you want to accomplish. So that's a little bit about how i got to this point. That's excellent and in. You did definitely just pinpoint something. That's so important around the emotional intelligence discussion. The fact that you have to be aware of what's going on with you and you know what is it. There's there's a lot going on in our world where emotions do run high zoa. People are feeling challenged in whether it's affecting you and your your work environment or your home environment. What are some of the ways it. Perhaps you can get to being more aware or more emotionally intelligent. Yeah well let's. I like name this moment as you just said. Two thousand twenty is such a crazy year and at the beginning of the year we started. We pulled You know hundreds of people across the united states to ask them what was the most predominant emotion that they were experiencing back in march. The answer then was anxiety. Which makes logical sense. You know it at. The heart of anxiety is feeling of uncertainty. That things that matter deeply to us are out of our control
Live not by Lies and the Danger of Soft Totalitarianism
"Four describes. How after throwing. Peter jon jail for teaching and proclaiming. Jesus the resurrection of the dead. The san hadrian demanded they not speak or teach at all in the name. Of jesus peter bluntly replied we cannot help but speak about what we have seen in hurt throughout history. Of course. Christians have faced demands to be silent throughout history. They've refused the word martyr. In fact is derived from the greek word that means witness and live not by lies a manual for christian dissident blogger and author. Rod dreher thinks that christians in the west are now entering a season. Not only have to decide whether or not we'll be silent. We have to decide whether or not we will allow ourselves to be forced to go along. With what is not true with lies like those who endured the hardest days of communist eastern europe western christians face a totalitarian future though he admits the totalitarianism talibanism of today is different. In a number of ways dreyer thinks it is still the correct word to describe the all encompassing ideologies of our day that seek to control not just our actions but our thoughts. Of course we don't face sort of state sponsored violence persecution or physical coercion. That many many others have throughout history. One doesn't end up in a gulag for criticizing the new sexual orthodoxy or for refusing to use the demanded pronouns but some have lost jobs. Some have lost future. Some have lost their degree programs. Others like cake artist jack phillips or floors bear. No stutzman have all but lost their livelihood in our current context. What dreyer calls soft atallah. -tarian ism is mostly administered. Not by the state but by corporations and other institutions that are run by managerial elites are social media profiles our smartphones and our smart speakers provide these managerial elites in corporations with an unprecedented ability to monitor what we say in what we do. China which is also an expert of course in hard to tolerate. -tarian ism is an example of how soft -tarian could proceed especially their social credit system which determines who's allowed to buy to sell to travel based on their social behavior here even as more instruments of technological surveillance or put into place an additional layer of enforcement comes from corporate america and our recent conversation for the breakpoint podcast rod dreher pointed to the corporate reaction to indiana's religious freedom restoration. Act that dates back to two thousand and fifteen. He sees it as a key moment of cultural transition. I do too though. Indiana's legislation was essentially identical to its federal counterpart corporations responded by threatening economic sanctions. Some corporations closed down offices in the state. The ncaa which is based in indianapolis threatened to move the final four basketball tournament and then when the christian owners memories pizza expressed support for the measure they were bombarded with negative online reviews and even had to close down temporarily because of all the threats of violence during the controversy a man whose mother had grown up under the hard to teheran ism of communism wrote to roger and told him that his mom saw parallels to what had happened in eastern europe since then many others from across europe told their own observations. Many of these moving stories are included in the book. In fact the interviews with christians who remain faithful under communist tyranny. That rod includes in. This book are worth reading. Even if you aren't convinced by his comparisons between their day hours above all these dissidents such as father thomas loft colaco vic a jesuit priest. Who was responsible for an underground church network and czechoslovakia. Have a great deal to teach us about what it means to live. Not by lies. We have much to learn from the bender family from prague about how to categorize our own children when everything it seems as pointing them away from the truth and we have much to learn from people like russian christian dissident alexander. Oh garage knockoff. And of course sultanate's in an hovel and so many others will go down in the annals of church history many as
How to Cultivate an Entrepreneurial Mindset with Tamiko Cuellar
"All right. So to me go. Thank you so much for taking time off. Out of your busy schedule to talk with me today. If a pleasure angle. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really glad to be here. One of the things that I really really wanted to Dig Inn on and learn from you today and have my audience calling from you was just around this concept in this conversation of what it means to really pursue your purpose. We just the name of your business and I think sometimes people mix up passion with purpose with Talent when you with all of these different definitions that are thrown at us all the time. So I think to start let's just get right into it and tell me I do pursue your purpose even come about Okay, so ironically pursue your purpose was not really intended to turn into a business. So okay the way it all started off was I was attending a particular Church many years ago probably almost a decade ago, and I noticed that there seemed to be a place for everyone to exercise their gifts, you know, whether there were a teacher or greeter or singer or musician, you know, there were all these different roles right and the church. Well, I could function in those things but it wasn't really an alignment with what I saw was most gifted in which was actually entrepreneurship and I thought well, what about all these other people who are sitting in the church who are like me where their gifts and their influence their anointing or the grace on their life is dead. Fully operational in the marketplace. So I was one of those people that was more suited to do business and to also raise up other people who were called to do the same thing. So I was just thinking how many more of those people are like me and so at that time I had been a business owner already for close to a decade and I wanted to be able to share my experience and my knowledge, you know just in the community and so I started hosting these meetings first. I asked my former Pastor off if he would allow me to start something some type of business or Marketplace Ministry and he was like sure and call it Kingdom preneur and I was like, okay ma'am. I can roll with that. So what I did was I started hosting monthly meeting in the public library. Right here in St. Louis and I started inviting people out not just people from the church, but also people from the community and it was a small group and people would come out Faithfully every month. They would come out and they would hear about like starting launching growing a business. So that's how I really hone my skills and how I started this because I really started to feel like this was more this would be less than the four walls of that church. And as a result, I started brainstorming one day with a friend and then I came up with this name pursue your purpose because I'm not all of our purpose is going to be like something and really spiritual or something. You know that we might think of when we think of like church or are calling in life is not going to always be something that appears to be spiritual but there are also people who are gifted to do what they're born to do outside of the church in within the marketplace so dead. How the name pursue your purpose was born? So that's interesting. What was your first business to me Co prior to pursue your purpose so prior to pursue your purpose. I I did a quite a few freelancing things today. They called them give entrepreneurs a gig for North where I would act as a consultant. I had also thought cold run a Roofing & Construction company. I was the administrative side of things a cold running that business. I had also found it a Tutoring company that remediated academic deficiencies between K and grades five and math and reading so I thought it was something that I did for a while because I'm really passionate about education and then there was also the past that the particular role that I had that sort of dead. Same way in to pursue your purpose with me actually taking a consultant role as like a small business developer and that came about because I was looking for a job actually at the time and I had just come out of corporate America and I was trying to reinvent myself off instead of looking for a job. I switched gears. It was just a moment where I just decided I don't want to work for anyone else. So there was a particular company that I had approached that was based in Tel Aviv Israel. And I was like, this is a really cool company was a text-based financial planning company, which was in alignment with my skill-set at that time and I am approached one of the founders and I say hey, I really love the concept of the business and I believe that my skills that can fit into what you all are doing. So I sent to my job And he was like great let's talk and then that ultimately led to him offering me a position there and I told him, you know, we'll instead of a position. Why don't we could talk about making me into a consultant and I come on board as one of your Consultants because I had a bigger vision for myself. I thought if I could just get five of these types of client Bots, then I can have my own company and basically exceed whatever salary limit that they had offer and so long story short. They were paying me like a hundred dollars an hour for that role and I couldn't believe it. Actually I was shocked myself and I remember the first phone call number calling my sister saying you not I can't believe this, you know, but I negotiated this like Consulting deal with this company. And so that sort of led me down the path of and what this company needed was they wanted a US presence and they didn't know how to wage. Their business into the US market, so I was basically telling them how to do that and then that open other opportunities for me at that company. But yeah, that's how those are some of the things that I had done prior to launching pursue your purpose.

Ways To Get Women Highly Involved in Retirement Planning With Marcia Mantell
"Hello and welcome to another top advisor marketing podcast. We don't often bring somebody on like my guest Marsha today. And here's why most wage. I don't think there's enough people like her out there. She has an author blogger a retirement industry expert and the author of a couple of books that we're going to talk about today. Now. My favorite thing about March is be fundamentally understands how important it is for you as a financial services professional to Market communicate and help women make decisions when it comes to retirement because it is different you can think to yourself that it's not but you're wrong and we're going to talk about being wrong today and how to make it right Marshall. Welcome to the boss man. Thank you so much for having me. And that was quite an intro. Well, thank you a static. Well, I did we had such a fun pre-call and I was so excited. I saw your on my calendar today and I'm like, I love this lady so wage. All right. First off it just does give us a little bit of a foundation here. How did you become a retirement industry expert in an author of multiple books? Well, you know like many things Matt wage was I fell into it happenstance and sometimes you just walk through a door because someone opened it for you and Wallah you end up having a thirty year career change in my case. I ended up walking through the door at Fidelity Investments back in nineteen. Ninety two as they were I call it inventing the rollover IRA and I got put on an account team that needed to support the marketing and product efforts for the rollover Ira which of course now has become the be-all end-all of our entire business. I thought it was exciting. It was like the wild west and it lasted for thirteen years, which was all good. But meanwhile, I had these two amazing young girls, I was trying to raise at home. And Corporate America and motherhood does not always quite aligned. So I stepped out at Fidelity and said, you know what I need to figure out something different so that I'm not always screaming at my poor kids and I started mental retirement Consulting and just hit fifteen years of doing business consultancy work with the financial firm and financial advisors around the country. Is it specifically directed at women or just your experience in the industry overall? Great idea question here. The women piece evolved over time is what I would say we started out just trying to Grapple with and get our arms around this thing called retirement, you know, in nineteen. Ninety two, the 401K was only twelve years old. Well ten years old really and we were all just trying to figure this thing out and saving for retirement. What did that mean? And you dabbled in it off? Well after thirty years, it has become abundantly clear that women have very different retirements than men they're ill-prepared and they don't even often know how to get their arms around getting themselves prepared for another 30 year chapter. So it has happened over time. It has built over time and for me, I mean you May notice Matt I am a woman. So I'm particularly concerned, you know self-serving for my own benefits and my own retirement and my own ability to navigate the very complicated Financial world that we all live in and so just over time things evolved from being broad retirement zeroing in on two women and what women really nice and how to get in this money game. So that's my travels through retirement and getting two women. I'm going to ask you a really dumb question because just me formulating the question just seems awfully ignorant on my behalf. But why is there such a difference? I mean, you know, we live in society together. Why is there such a fundamental need for financial services professionals to understand the differences in how women want to prepare for retirement and men want to repair for prepare for retirement? Why is there such a big difference wage? Well behavioral Finance would probably have some really academic wonderful. Research to answer that but I'm going to go a different route and I would tell you it's because men and women are fundamentally culturally Society wise. I live in the same Society. We see it differently in our roles are different add to that. The laws that have been written around retirement have been radically different for men and women. I'm going to give you two examples. The first is social security when Social Security was written it's a law so I mean keep in mind here. We've got some thousand five hundred pages of legal doctrine that supports Social Security and Medicare it is a law in in nineteen thirty-five when the Charming men in Congress were fighting this law called the Social Security Act. Society I'm using that in quotes Society was very much what we would consider today a traditional white family. The man worked outside the home the little woman stayed home. She certainly didn't have a job for pay and she raised the children. So the laws were written literally to protect her that the expectation was the man would be out in the world working wage earning a living and providing for his family up until age sixty-five at which point he would enter retirement so he couldn't retire early by the way, he would enter retirement and provide for her still by having earned a paycheck along the way so that's one example, so just even in our laws it set up where men and women are different and have different access to their money the other one though, that just slays me to this day. When I started in the retirement business again, nineteen, ninety two moms at home moms who did not have wages could only contribute $250 to an IRA 250. That was it the working dad the working husband could put in $2,000. She could only put in a hundred and fifty it wasn't until Nineteen Ninety Six, you know, that's like yesterday for me as a baby boomer like oh 1996, you know, I know that era only then could at home moms make equal contributions into an IRA. I still find that stunning. It's jaw-dropping. So women were not even allowed to stay home to raise their kids and be able to save for retirement. So yeah, we live in the same Society but the laws look at these gender roles these traditional roles. Yep. Very differently in the laws are written in that era it can sometimes take a really long time to change them. Yeah

"Welcome to extraordinary women radio Christine. I am so excited to have you join me today. I know this is going to be so much fun. You and I are long long time Pals and I am just thrilled to have you hear me to thank you for having me. Yeah, and you've got so many interesting stories. I know you're going to be sharing with us today. We we've talked a little bit about this direction that we're going to go in and and I know that you were sitting in meditation this week actually thinking about you know, what is it that wants the flow through you and this week on this conversation and I love first of all you were doing that because that's there's so much Beauty and stopping & pausing and listening to that inner wisdom that's there for us to find jobs then being able to hear Hear that message that that bubbles up and I know you and I have had many many conversations about this and what I know it came up for you was accepting when it's time to Pivot off and I love this first of all, and it's it's funny because any of my listeners are going to go wait a minute you've been talking about it's not about the pivot and sometimes it's not about a pivot in this crazy or sometimes. We really have to stand in our truths and and who we are and just show up and serve our our people and at the same time there's definitely times and places. Where would we need to Pivot? And I know that's a theme that has been showing up for you for multiple years in different ways. You've been very courageous and brave and how you should up in your pivot should tell us a little bit. Why you think that's the topic that came it came up for you on this. Sometimes we don't know what's going to come up right part of it makes no true. Right right opening to The Unknown. So this definitely wasn't coming from you know, this song theoretical analytical part of my brain now, I will say I may have been influenced because I've been watching the NBA finals and you know, there's there's a pendant in basketball who knows that that had anything to do with the it's okay. So I'm going to add you on that because guess what I used to play basketball in high school and we had the best coach we're off we had he taught us how to Pivot and this really strong space where we when we pivot we pivot with our body and we'd hold the ball in front of us and we'd pivot which keeps you safe from them, you know, having a foul or anything like that. There's such strength in that so I'm just going to let that keep moving off of that that theme you know, and as you know in basketball, you can't pivot all the time off. Like to your point there's a time in the game when you strategically go up on you know, you always leave one foot on the ground right when you pivot right? You're not home, right? Very good. You think about like you leave that one foot and then you literally can pivot 360 degrees with a ball and I say there is wisdom in knowing when to let go off all and win to let come what needs to come into your life. And so for some reason that seems to be the overriding theme that came through Thursday. So tell us some of your I know you've got multiple stories of pivoting. Where do you want to start share a little share a little share a bit about you and just your journey that's gotten you to this point. I know you've built this amazing incredible company and I'm always so proud of the work that you know, you are doing in the world. I just go look at the work you're doing and I'm very exciting. For you, but you have a you have some some big pivots you've made. Very much. So and I was thinking all the way back to 1994. So somebody do the math. You'll figure out that that was a long time ago. And at that point I was living in San Francisco that place of my dreams. I had the dream job working in Corporate America and knowing that this was I thought this is it off. This is where I'm going to be and a pivot came and that pivot brought me to Denver where I transitioned from my corporate career, which was advertising sales in the high tech magazine publishing industry. I pivoted to being a stay-at-home mom and I would put those in quote stay at home because I don't know any mom who stays at home and I certainly didn't wage and for a number of years. I took a detour from my professional career to raise three children by kept one foot in the professional world all the time whether it was dead, Marketing Consulting sales, I even became a book publishing coach at at some time

"And going into work from 7 to 7 and not home lunch or not having anything and then open up my laptop again until midnight and kept doing that shit like know just know so I had to realize that because one day my husband and I were working at the time our kitchen and I just started crying. I was like they sent me this is amazing. This is uncomfortable. I don't like what's happening. I don't even know at that point. I didn't even know health-wise what was happening but like I wasn't sleeping wasn't eating. I did want to talk to people so full of anxiety and depression and like my voice. I taught always have a fast-paced but like it was this time to at all times and that was only a glimmer and what we're going on in my brain. And so when it comes to the mental health space is one is giving us the space to be like, yes. This is the condition that I have our situation or syndrome. It is not your identity and their job Also the other big thing that we we often Overlook that's been really insightful for me as I work in spaces. It's weird because we will have a very fine line between personal identity and career goal. But for some reason we think that our mental health in our workplace and our personal lives are separate and so interesting as I started to Dig Inn is understanding that attachment like we or off the first thousand days of your life are some of the most most foundational days of your life and can have a ripple effect across your entire life span. And so with the interesting space that I am excited to have a lot more conversation to do more research. It myself is around this idea of taxing of attachment Theory which really talks about your style and dynamic social dynamics in like your household and how we bring those into the workforce and it changes with our our Dynamics and engaging with other team members are our leadership behaviors and traits wage. As well as how we work on teams and how we see our role in org. So I think what's exciting about having these conversations is we're starting to uncover this information that's been out there but it's not approachable. Honestly, like i r e y papers cuz I need to for research but like I wasn't doing this before but there's so much information out there that can help us understand ourselves. And I appreciate you always being so transparent open because so many people are dealing with the same stuff and they won't talk about it and they feel so alone and they feel like it's all like it's all for naught but you've been such a walking testimony at like brush your shoulders off keep fighting with them to keep doing the work building your community and they'll take care of you. We we all in this together and and excited for us to act like it, you know. Yeah, I just God I'm so excited to watch your journey because like I just literally got goosebumps and I'm like trying not to cry off. Cuz I you hit on a lot there and I realize like there is a lot tied to how we're raised that really hinders Us in the workplace and like one of the big and like one of the biggest examples that I give people is that we're taught at home, you know, when we're going off to school, you know, put your head down and do your work and your work will speak for itself and that doesn't work in corporate not at all never did not know and so the game we were taught right and and maybe in our parents generation when you know affirmative action started and they really weren't trying to conceive. Anyway, the only real thing you had to talk for you was your work and so in some spaces and in some ways that seem to work but yep. I'm looking at my colleagues and peers now. There's so many examples. I see of black women like literally killing themselves putting in all these hours early in the morning late at night and there were awarded a little bit and it's a little bit and so then there's this idea. Well, it takes more I have to do more. I have to give more money in order to get further along and actually not only are you killing yourself in doing that if you're really only going to get so far because you spend all your time doing all that work, you're not building relationships and you're not playing the game optimally, right? And so I just wanted to teach people to think about it all differently and I never really tied it so much to hey, let me also ask my coaching clients. Like hey tell me how you grew up. But now that you said that I'm going to start digging into that tube. To connect dots for them more even more into how to shift their perception on how they tackle their work and building relationships so that they can continue to rise in corporate. I think that is so like nuggets nuggets. I want people to pay me for this episode, but that's okay. So funny you get the information. I just want to say something to be aware of and for anyone else that is a coach and is taking these nuggets and looking to employ them be very very careful playing there. There was a fine line between coaching and mentoring and we all need to collectively respect that line as someone who had a lot of coaching clients both informally and formally you can very often go down that slippery slope, especially if you are in a space where you especially if you have the ability to create a space for vulnerability and so it is go into that with God. What I do with my client, so what I would recommend for coaches to do with your clients, if you want to if if that stuff starts coming up is I for me and I actually I think I'm going to declare this from now on anyone on a one-on-one needs to be in therapy. And that is there for me. Like I'm not going to help you with your work stuff. Once I see that a lot of if I see like Monday five seventy-five 50% like if I see the majority of your issues is you and you don't have a therapist. I can't help you because if you were sitting there like I know I've had some clients call me and they're super defensive and they're super angry and there's all these things that they can't even hear me and what I'm telling them. Okay, it sounds like your boss is saying this. So here's how you should approach it and they're like, well, I don't know why I have to purchase that way. That's not my fault the same fare the I'm like, okay pause you're not ready for me. You need therapy. Do you have a therapist? Cuz if you don't I'm not fucking with you like I had to do that because yeah, you have to be in the right mental space to take this Challenge on call Corporate America. Yeah, yeah, it's a matter of self-awareness an introduction really to guard yourself and protect yourself. Yes. So if that's awesome, I've.
Women have been disproportionately impacted by covid-19
"Been disproportionately impacted by the job losses during the pandemic to the point that some are referring to today's recession as a she session. Many of the pressures women already face in the work force, such as the gender pay gap barriers to advance. Men and lack of flexibility have been exacerbated. The crisis could, however, usher and new policy standards and support systems for women across industries and income levels. Here with me to talk about all this is Alexis Crib. Covic, senior partner with McKinsey and co author of Women in the Workplace. 2020 report. Welcome to the program. Alexis Crisco, Vic Chris. Covic. I'm sorry. I'm getting that right. Thank you for having me and we also have in helicopters. Litwin, clinical psychologist and founder of Latinos Think Big a network of professional women and Lumina. Modern psychotherapy practice. Welcome in helicopters. Littwin. Thank you. And Serena Khan, chief executive officer of Women's Foundation of California. Welcome to the program. Serena Con. Thanks so much, and Alexis Krukov itch. I'd like to start with you and some of what the McKinsey Workforce study told us. Why are women facing greater job loss than men? And where are we seeing the biggest impacts? Salute Lee. So the headline here is that we're facing a crossroads in corporate America today, and the reason for that is on one side this pandemic while a humanitarian crisis at its heart has created An opening for flexible work, and that's a good thing because that's the number one thing. Women have said. In the past, they need to advance more in the workplace environment. On the flip side, one in four women today is saying because of the pandemic and the context it's creating in their workplace environment and their home environment. They may need to step back or step out of the workforce. And one and four equates to two million women that would unwind years of progress of women's advancement in the workplace. And it's just something we can't afford to lose. And we're really seeing the gendered nature of work here to right Serena Khan, not only where Caretaking responsibilities end up falling when push comes to shove, but also who falls into this essential worker category and the disproportionate impact on black and brown women's who We're looking at a really layered intersectional issue here. That's exactly right. All of us are being impacted by the pandemic, but we're not all being impacted in the same way. Oh, the gendered impact of the pandemic are particularly profound for especially women of color working moms, gender non conforming folks this pandemic. Highlighting problems that we've needed to work on together to solve three the pandemic, So we know, for example in California. Freak O bed, two thirds of tipped workers, part time workers, minimum wage earners where women and primarily women of color even though California Is the wealthy of state in the nation. It's also has the highest rate of poverty and the people who are living in poverty in California are women of color and their kids. And so when we think about this pandemic, whether It's women who are the essential workers who are making up 80% of our healthcare workforce, or the retail and grocery workers. The essential workers that Are still working or on the flip side. They're the ones that have lost their jobs because the majority of us are working in the restaurant industry. Oh, our other retail industry that have lost significant Numbers of jobs, so it's a very gendered epidemic and Serena Con you've spoken about how there's no going back to normal that that normal wasn't that good to begin with, when it came to gender equity in the workforce. That's right. You know, this pandemic is shining a light on all that was wrong with Our country, our world, our state, and so you know, as hundreds of thousands of women leave the workforce to manage what is really an unmanageable amounts of caretaking remote schooling. You know, our child care costs were making up. Ah, upwards of, you know, 60 70% of the single moms income that's not sustainable and So you know, we have an opportunity here to think about what is the future that we want on. DWI can change some of those systems that we have an opportunity to really Think about care, work into value care and compensate that work fairly as we figure out howto move forward, But the pandemic has really forced us to reckon with how much care we all need, whether we're caring for our Children. For each other for ourselves for our elders on DH so we can build some new solutions for us that the women Foundation California we have believed Since our founding in 1979 that people who are closest to the problems in their communities are also closest to the solutions. And so we have innovative ideas coming out of community. Based leaders about what we can do post pandemics. I think it's important for us now, Tio You know, make sure that people are getting their basic needs met. So you know, one of the other things that we saw very early on in the pandemic is that not everybody was safer at home. That rates of domestic violence were spiking upwards of 40 to 80% and all of California 58 counties. So we and yet so as the need went up the Situation for the shelters was that they had to that They had actually left physical space because of the need to do physical distance event. Soon, though, there's a lot that Yeah, so there's just a lot that we're seeing and that we can think about solving. Yes,
Starbucks Ties Executive Pay to Diversity Targets
"Starbucks is making an effort to increase its diversity throughout the company. The coffee chain will be requiring diversity training for executives and tie their compensation to increasing minority representation in its workforce. Warm or we turn to the KCBS Ring Central Central News News Line Line and and check check in in with with Wall Wall Street Street Journal Journal reporter reporter Heather Heather Haddon, Haddon, who who has has been been following following this this story, story, Heather, Heather, Thanks Thanks for for being being with with us. us. Starbucks Starbucks follows follows a a number number of of other other companies companies were were doing doing similar things to increase diversity in the workplace. Yes, it certainly got a lot of attention and corporate America beginning in the summer with all the racial unrest in arresting general. I'm following that George Floyd. Murder, but Starbucks they say that this journey began to them earlier. They had a pretty high profile into them. But there is an arrested too. Black men in a Philadelphia store, which prompted them Tio hiring an outside consultant and doing the whole assessment of their diversity levels on multiple levels of the chain, the corporate level the store level manufacturing level. And prompted them to identify some areas where they think they need to do more work and which there now targeting through what he said training through a tying Progress with their executive pay through a mentorship program, the whole comprehensive approach there taking, But I understand they're actually getting some pushback, or at least companies like Starbucks getting pushback from the federal government in mandating training like this is that right? Yes, but the timing of this is really interesting, Starbuck says again. Thes efforts were long underway about last month. Federal government Came out with an order saying that they were going to Scrutinized federal contractors who do answer by training, who said specific targets and metrics when it comes to Racial diversity in hiring and already They're starting to enforce that, In certain ways the broader executive order goes into effect. Next month, but it seems the Labor Department's already started. Look at this. Issue and is going after some companies they say have infringed on some of these issues They highlight. Just connecting all the dots. Starbucks is indeed a federal contractor. They are concerned, Um They said to me, so yes, this is an issue that could be could be of issue for them. Do you think the other Cos we're going to follow? Starbucks is so huge. Do you think other companies are going to follow despite that issue with being a federal contractor? Yeah, It's really a moment for a lot of these companies. You know, I would say broadly, the movement was pushing in this whole direction. Fire to this to this announcement by the White House so he could start to create somewhat of a chilling effect of some companies who maybe not want to get into the crosshairs of Federal government that said, like he said, Starbucks He's a leader. When what I was talking to them about this, they said. We believe we're taking a leadership position on this and they want other companies should join with them. They feel like this will have broad support amongst their workforce. And so they We're quite confident in their position, and they think others should
New report shows how COVID-19 pandemic is impacting women in workplace
"A critical moment for corporate America, particularly for women. That's the message from a devastating new report from the Kinsey and company. As a result of covert and the pressures of working from home. The report finds that one in four women are considering taking a step back in their careers or leaving the workforce entirely. Years of painstaking progress towards gender equality. Is that real risk of being lost at the beginning of this year before the pandemic hit here in the U. S. More women were being appointed to manager and leadership positions. Progress was slow, but it was in the right direction. Now the pandemic threatens much of those gains. Women cite childcare and homeschooling responsibilities, mental health and burn out as the main issues, McKinsey concludes that corporate America is at a crossroads. The choices that employers and workers make today will have consequences for decades to come.

"Right? And advocates are the somebody they shine on you. They put a light on you to help you grow up through the organization, and so you is the seat sprouting. You should have advocates that are around the pie that are saying Oh look at that I'm let me shine this light look at the great work. She did look at what she did over here Oh that's so great. You have to cultivate all these relationships though, but now get this the sponsor. Is the person with the watering can with the water in it and not everybody has the watering can and the water. But shoe need at least one person at got the juice the water. To more water, own your seed because without that water, you cannot grow in that pop. You're not go make. That's a really interesting analogy. FELISA and I think it works in applies really well. Yeah. Right. You you know the sponsors are the ones who are going to help lift you up right the when they know they're the promotion or a role available. They're the ones who are GONNA put you up for it. Yeah and you may not even know who this person is has watering can. But they don't WanNa. Go around watering all the pots for the company. They do I think with the sponsors it helps though if you can you know cultivate that relationship because you've established such a strong reputation for yourself right you can ask them to sponsor you and they will. But oftentimes, if you're performing at that level, it gets noticed but I find with us with meeting if you are minority and women's black women, especially, you could be killing it. And everyone knows you're killing it. But unless you explicitly asked for that sponsorship or Mentorship, you don't always get it and that's what's really the problem with Corporate America. That is the problem because. In any you know at the crux of at tell people racism is like the foundational thing. And then on top of that is all the gunk of this is human nature. So human nature we've we've been socialized to look at people and see ourselves, and you can see this thing that we do is humid. You can see it start in my junior high school at the lunch tables. Where people star gravitating towards people who look like them, and then at the root of us at the foundation is racism like we've been socialized a racist and sexist society and so that is so subtly ingrained in us that that's how we kind of break off by race and by gender when we're young and it perpetuates and it's not a when we do it, it's not even really intentional. It's just Kinda. It's what makes me feel comfortable like I'm comfortable sitting at the black kid the black kids table's. Right or I'm I'm the only black kid in a classroom for the white kids I miss school with a bunch of white kids in the black kids say I sound white. So now go sit with these white kids until they call me a nigger and go hang out with the band kids I'm sorry this isn't Okay Point is we start doing this how that manifests itself in corporate is Bob comes along to billy. Billy you remind me of me when our Schori. Play. Golf on Saturdays just me and Dave now Dave's the CEO of the company this is Bob the VP and this is billy the ABM. And? So, next thing you know. Bob. Introduced Billy to the CEO who the CO definitely has watering cans. You hear me. Right as out here's here's a seed being presented. It's like, Hey, go ahead the advocates shining go he needs a little water keep us a lot around him so he won't dry out from all my shine. I'm about to give all through the organization because he reminds me of me. Now we're my big booby five eight black has go remind some old wrinkly ass white man of himself Hamadu that. Yep Unfortunately, and so this is what we have to fight against. So now I gotta go get him Bob's face and be like hey bob. You know. I'm Hella ambitious and I. Know You hell ambitious one grab coffee and so now in this post desegregated world where still racism. But now you had to hire me you'll numbers in the EOC shit and trump's a really got takeover like he wants to. So I'm still in this bitch. So now I mean your face smiling and so you rely. And now I gotta try. My best with all my energy and all my black girl magic and all my tap dance. Come home by giving some. Sit there and be like well, I guess she isn't so bad. This is the first black girl I've ever really talked to. Him. This is what we're up against as well. We have again you're absolutely right but we can do it because then now look at tier the last job to you had let me tell you awesome about to you commerce. So we were at a concert there was put on by her last job. She left these people but they still let her come to her last little activation. She. For them now mobile she's still working for them I was like, what is you doing? So she helping people out introducing people you know doing the boss Bitch thing right and I'm just happy to be here because I'm like Oh my friends awesome and so I'm there watching her work. When I tell you she had these white folks eating out the palm of her hand. They were like tear won't you just come back? Don't you want to come back to you see what you? Come. Just you know we'll just let me know you less. Next week Taylor. Oh my God. I'm so glad you're here. Are you sure you? To you. Bob. You, my God tail why you leave us. You know you can come back.

"So the third thing I need you to do this month and it starts with some meditations some quiet time and no. That's hard but maybe it's you know just cutting everything off on your drive to work. It's just taking some time out to think and think about what you want your intention to be for twenty twenty it by the end of twenty twenty. What do you want to see? Come to fruition for for your career what should your career look like in an ideal world by the end of next year. So by this time next steer when I do this episode for twenty sports what should have happened in those twelve months in those three hundred sixty five days for your career so so for example for me as you guys know no. I started a new job. I went back to corporate My bank account said Ed. I need you to get a job and I was like. I can't stand you right but I realize you know I'm still new are my first ninety days and and sometimes it feels hard to think longer term when you're so new but something. I've always wanted to try something I've always wanted to be and be seen as in. These organizations is high potential talent and the as a black woman being seen is high. Potential talent is a difficult task and people are what no so. Let me explain a little bit. Let me take a little time. My definition of being seen this high potential talent is not just marking me Hypo in hr file when you truly seen as high potential talent you you're seeing as someone we can put in the plans in the succession planning someone up we. It really invest in their career because we want them to be a senior leader in the organization. And I see that externally happening. I've seen it happening. And Oh my God I'm getting emotional in my career I have seen it happen for so many white people just going. NBA On. And it's like I think of all the organizations I've been in there's always a white man or white woman and for for whatever reason or how it's always been a mystery to me. I've been working so hard which was another reason why I started this podcast because I was see these people people these senior leaders and I would look at them and be like and it's not that they're not smart. They're smart but they're not smarter than me. They're no better than me and I'm not saying I'm any better than them but what I'm saying. Is I do what they do if I was groomed if I was tapped if I was picked if I was chosen and I just didn't understand what made them so different to get pit to be tapped than me or any of my other. Black colleagues is been and so frustrating. Which is why I'm getting emotional? I'm feeling that frustration in sharing this with you guys and so now they have a new opportunity mighty and with the knowledge that I've gained firm creating this show and looking up information and in studying how to get ahead in my career because I firmly believe that. Fuck all the bullshit microaggressions racism system sexism. Fine we're always going to have a fucking obstacle fine but I just refuse to believe you've that just because of all that shit I still can't defy the odds that I can't be nominally. Ah I can't make you to places that my ancestors prayed for but could never dream of. I just refused to believe believe that I'm not good enough because I'm black or because I'm a woman and so because of that my intention is is to make sure I'm doing everything I know. I can do in my power to signal to the organization that I I am someone who can lead. MB leader and add value and be great intake this organization to a higher heights. And I'm over here chunking back tears because it's so frustrating. I know you guys know this why he listened to the podcast like back. I know I'm not alone. I know there's so many ambitious women because this is why black women are leaving corporate right like this is why we're going going to be entrepreneurs in droves because at the end of the day is like fuck you you think I should you treat me like shit will oh fuck you. I'll show you because I'll take all and learn from working and giving you all this value that you didn't appreciate I will go build my own and say fuck you workplace Corporate America. Ray Make we all feel that way but guess what guys is. All of us. Don't want to be entrepreneurs like I know I see it. I see it on the Internet. Like what we need to do. As black people we need to be corporate corporate America. We used to go do our own thing. Yeah like I can't see how we all get to leave. Maybe there's something I'm missing. I don't I know you guys tell me but I know is some of US came leave. So what are we going to do with is going to sit there and just be a worker bee knowing that we would be so much better deriving in the gifts that we have if we were truly given the opportunity to lead organizations to lead teams to manage huge. PNL's to drive a big business but that takes someone. Saying I see you. I see your talent. You know you can do this. And I'm going to open these doors for you. And so my intention for two thousand thousands and twenty is to work to show up every day and and do all the things that I know need to be done in that are in my power to be seen as someone to doc groom and put into succession. That is my whole intention for twenty twenty four my career.

"So the last thing you talked about as a key takeaway for you on your fire journey is that you've honed your intuition to make choices that feel good rather than look good so what's the difference between something that feels good rather than looks good. This is different for every person but I think a lot of us in our community. We love you know I. I don't know how to say this because I was guilty of this for so many years. I made the choices that look good on the resume Brian. The shoes the guy who looks good on paper but I was like I I knew he wasn't sitter. I knew he was not a nice person and one of the biggest elements of the fire movement and really what I would say. Hello anyone be successful is learning how to trust your own intuition and really follow it so even if Ajab has an fancy name or the title seemed greater. The pay is amazing. If your gut is telling you this is not right for me. Don't do quit because ultimately the choices you make that aren't aligned with your inner compass. They're usually going to cost you more than they gain you and so for me a huge element uh of becoming financially free making good choices has been just relying on that intuition like when I bought my place in Harlem it was part of Harlem. That was not yet hot. A lot of people are like why would you move there. Why but I just don't sit. I was like I feel like this is a really special little neighborhood across from a beautiful park other people to be but I still I saw it as I trusted that intuition and like I said that that plays quadrupled in value and we'll probably be a million dollar apartment in the next ten years. You have to learn how to make the choices that feel good rather than look it. I delete things will feel that bite a lot of a lot of times all that glitters is not gold and we know it but we choose it anyway because we wanna glitter you know and that's a really slippery slope being very unhappy a man. It's the whole idea of will I went to school at job making this money about the fancy car have a house and then you sit in your house drinking bottles. How does the wine trying to drown your sorrows away like actually when you could make different choices what I love about your message. Is it sounds like like to live a fire lifestyle. You have to change your mindset and it's hard because we've all been taught this one path right right and so many of us are working to make money so that we can buy more shit and you know look like we're happy but we really need to shift our thinking in order to be financially independent and don't get me wrong. I'm saying this because I want to make a shift and this is going to be hard for me because I live in. NBA bubble right brunch every weekend trips to ever like I'm about to get on a plane and go overseas for my friend's fortieth birthday and we're all like NBA's right so we've asked to blow some money in for me yeah. I'm about to blow some credit cards. There's nothing wrong with that. I I love to travel blow. I will treat myself to a five star hotel like this is not about depriving yourself of things that give you joy is about being strategic about what really gives me joy one piece as in rice like right down the Tim Things Hopton things that can be join your life for a lot of people when you really think about. What is you drain Your Life. Most of them are not material things. The the for me travel and it sounds like for you to travel is one of those things absolutely Enjo- money on travel if that is one of those things that gives you joy but maybe for me having a fancy car. I really don't give a crap. I drive a nice car but that's largely because of my husband and he really values cars right but if it was up to me I was still you you driving my kid. You know from back in the day so because cars don't matter to me but travel does so. It's like making those choices You can have anything but you can't have every day. You WanNa be free right or if you plan it right like if you land it out then you can overtime armed bills so like for me one of the things I do. WanNa be more but I told myself along time ago. You do not get beamer until you can buy a straight cash okay. That's a great way to do it yeah. It's just not worth it if I can't buy it. Straight cash on top of also have to be comfortable with the maintenance 'cause in my Honda oil changes less than fifty bucks from what I understand. You get a beamer. You gotta go to the beamer dealership and then you gotta pay like Lord knows how much it's like hundreds of dollars for an oil change so I'm like until akin do that and not blink and not even think about it or Fila certain kind of way about it. It's GonNa be me and my Honda. That's smart way to efforts yeah but I really do. WanNa make shifts and I WANNA get aggressive with pay off my debt including my student loans and the House that I live in right right now like I wanna be debt-free and so after the break I wanna talk about the exact steps that we need to take to get started started on creating our own fire plan to freedom so we're gonNA talk about that with Erica after the break and which I want to share a review that I received seved on August twenty fifth two thousand nineteen by Lisa Brown eight three eight and I'm just so grateful you guys so the title of this review is awesome and much needed and thank you. Lisa says thank you to this young lady. I love you for that. She says thank you to this young lady. I wish show would've had such a form.

"So the key takeaway talk about is building your own table. You said focus on building your own table rather than resigning yourself to fighting for a seat at someone else's table yet talk about what that means for you know for me. This is a result of fifteen years. He's working in corporate America and getting treated fit basically where I finally realized like I'm never going to fit here. Bracken thrive here. I can make a a bunch of money but this is not my health and so I I heard someone saying. I don't know who was that he was talking about. How Black folks a lot of times. If we think about how we're attacking the Corporate America it's like you're going to somebody else's house and then you're mad. They're not treating you like a member of the family and offering. USC Like you're always gonNA to be a stranger because it's not your hell no but the key is to build your own house. Build your own table and stuff begging for scraps with someone else's and I'm not I'd say you can't be a part of the corporate culture because I still am. I love my job but I switched to using corporate America but I don't depend on it. W Two job fuels all of my dreams my freedom. I travel might investment. It helps me be more and more free but I know that at any minute I can walk away. Wait and tell them fuck you because I don't depend on you. I'm using right when you have that perspective. It really is you from begging for a seat at someone else's table. It's not our table and until we build our own tables. Have our own money have our own infrastructure. I think it's GonNa be. It's kind of like a hamster. Mr Will. You're never going to get off of in a game. You're never GONNA win. That's fair. I think that's bad thing especially right now and I know you know. A lot of people will be like we'll Lisa. You want us to survive drive in corporate America. I'm like yeah but part of that thriving is knowing when to fold them and being able to fold them comfortably and being able to walk away from situations that don't benefit you any longer and not feeling any kind of way about it and that's why this episode sodas so important.

It's taking me a moment to write this because I didn't want want to leave anything out. I became interested in getting an M._B._A..

"Talk about what you need to rise is and thrive in corporate America now back to the show and we're back from the break so tiffany an hour just discussing you know some of the things that we have taken away a about being intentional about how you spend your time things. You need to think about giving yourself grace when you go back from job break. If you ever take a job break but right now to get into like the hindsight and I WanNa know what did you do. How much time did you have off you think about a gear all total as beautiful you need it? So what did you do during that year. Where did you live by inexpensive to live? I went back to Ohio where my mother lived and you know I'm thankful that I was in a position to be able to take the time to not early. Take care of her but also take care of our fares after she passed and <hes> you know <hes> there's a saying that certain people leave will old and other people lead bill well. I unfortunately got the end of the stick where there were bill left ranches issue than just the sheer clean out of the House House a whole ordeal so you could idea that they part of the time was really around the administrative the that just had to be done around my mother's passing <hes> not fun but I'm glad that I was able to do it on interrupted by job and all the responsibilities that come with that so that was part of it <hes> <hes> I would say another part did some volunteering and it was really the Kinda help me define like okay. Is this something that I might want to do in the future so there's a great organization uncalled Gore for your who may be interested in starting a business I highly recommend yeah or offers free mentoring to people who are interested in starting their small business so I was able to do that and I met some cool people through that even learn skills and also provided me how much business acumen I really have 'cause sometimes the corporate if you're not careful people beat you down and you're like wow I don't know anything. It's not true when you step outside of the bubble like you realize that you really we do have a lot of knowledge though it would help to me to be able to share some of that and pay some of that forward. I think if you asked me what thing that I'm most proud of during my my break is probably reconnecting relationship wise I was able to reconnect with my family back in Ohio that I hadn't really connected with and quite some time I got the quality time with friends. I came to Dallas at least once you did. That was great yeah. I was proud of that and <hes> even though I'm working now now it's still important for me to make that a priority to spend time with the people that I love his job. Come and go John you back <hes> but the people in your life they do they care about you and I think you gotta invest the time back in them and again. I'm not perfect at that but it is important to me to do that. You know listen to you say who was thinking yes. Corporate America really is like a Nigga by really like as it really is. I he act too. You can break away we him and go find you another one and and you can't like dish your friends and family for Yo Nigga like you just can't 'cause if he act <hes> an angered and left them to be all about him then when you come back they're going to be like well where you being. Oh Oh no you did was working in care about us is work work work work work work or you just which Nigga Nigga you know like so corporate America Ayla Little Nigga. I wasn't ready for the analogy but it works. It works. We you said not me I go. You need to break up with you know okay. So what should you have been doing while you were on your break. In hindsight in hindsight I wish I would have spent more time getting into with my passion. <hes> I did some dribbling dabbling but I'll be honest there. There was a part of me that panic and like okay cheap. Your bank account is dwindling fast. You don't have a plan so in many ways I kinda defaulted to what I knew. Oh yes that's which industries but as you mentioned it fairly adjacent still within food so I think I had an opportunity to make more seismic shift in my life than what I ultimately ended up making no regret per se but I wish I would have spent that time unpacking. Like what am I really good at. What do I really enjoy anyway? What brings me joy? How can I bring joy to others the what I do <hes> so that's still work that I have to do? Even though I'm now working again yeah and also love for me. I realise like what brings me energy. I need to be doing things that bring me energy. When you go to a building building full of people and you beat up odd and you get home and you can't even hardly hall you hit? You can't watch your favorite show uses tired. Then people have zapped you. That's the place for you to be like you should be doing doing things that you can get excited about. They give you energy like when you get home. You're like I did that today. In it should be something that maybe you can leave and Mike break from and not bring it home with you because all this working around the clock. It's not healthy. It's so not healthy at a point of diminishing returns like I get working hard but not to the point where it's a detriment you to your family to your friend your health bike. It's just not worth it no and they only pay you for certain about it that forty hours forty hours you salary. They pay you for forty hours. y'All s giving them sixty plus will. Are we doing why why are we doing got learn how to be more efficient out of push back out of Beta jar manager like all of that because says we gotta put ourselves. I and I think the problem is as women in our society. We've been trained that everything outside of this is more important and it is important for us to nurture everything outside of us so whether it be our family our friends our jobs we have been coerced in a lot of different ways in very subtle ways because it's like woven into the fabric of the expectations that society has yes I and so once you wake up and you realize like oh I had a I had a rain this shit in like this ain't working then you're like okay but then you get confused and you're like okay. What am I supposed to do different? Though I think that's the hard part I so agree and I think that that's where I found myself and quite frankly still I myself like what what is the different for me now. Yeah it'll come. I think giving yourself grace though is we can't repeat it enough enough and that's the thing I learned the most on my break. The is probably coming to an end here up to <hes> right 'cause nor Jesus. <hes> you know I just I can't sit here and like be alight in a beacon of hope and be highly levered like something in my spirit you know out of the highly levered. Yes a slight yes yes. How are you going to be on unemployment flying business class overseas? You live your life. You know I'm trying to balance. I'm trying to balance but it's it's hard and then you know one thing I've really learned is that and need to be an adult me and this little six year old that didn't grow up inside of me. We'd be fighting because she don't want to be doing shit so for example my mom's house so my cousin lives in my mom's house because basically my mamma was like let her stay there and this was like a couple of days before she died so you know all of that and so it helps me in a way but it also cost me money because for I my cousin was paying rent because my my Momma said let us stay there for free but I don't think my mama mainly has stayed at forever for free and after a while it was like look you need to help because I'm paying the money for you to live there like what exists and so again not adulting and just putting my head in the you're saying because I didn't want to deal with stuff right so fast forward her brother gets out of prison and he needs somewhere to stay and and so they just like oh he gonna stay with her and I was like okay so yeah just telling me. I don't feel like I had a choice in the matinee eight and again now wanted to deal with stuff as for my head in the sand and was like fuck it whatever I don't care just don't burn down Negative okay with that. I don't have to change the title of the show to shoot fillet. You gotta take over reference about jail. Well title the show right. Now is moving past tragedy career breaks but not chick-fil-a all right a lot going on. This is an so for me. I think the takeaway is when you get a career break nick. I know it's real easy to get into this taking naps when you want to. You know Kinda just eating whatever you want doing whatever ever you want but really you're an adult. You need to adult so for me. I'm struggling to do the things that take care of my health like I don't work out consistently and I got all the time in the world of work. I have no excuse now. There's no like oh I work sixty five hours a week and I'm just so tired that's BS. So why am I going to this gym in my neighborhood like that's free like what am I doing and I know give myself grace but also I gotta gotTa hold myself accountable so I was focused on my mental health last year. Now I need to focus on my physical health because honey lemme tell you when we for it essence. I was tied and run this race a life and to have the impact that you WanNa have you're so right. You've got to focus on your physical health and that's something that I'm focusing on to. I'm on a well this call with a couple of ladies. We use a friend of Mine at beating up her coaching business and she's like the epitome of wellness. She eats well. She exercises. She has the discipline. I'm hoping that I can take a little of that away for myself <hes> even though I'm working again because it's so important again like I said earlier you know once you allow your physical or mental health the slim you can come back but it's definitely a calling back to get back to healthiness and wholeness. So what can we do <hes> not to split and keep ourselves healthy all around so what's the name of the coach. Her name is Aaron Brown. I I am the name of her coaching practices escaping me now but perhaps we can put it into. No you know I think she has a great methodology the twelve week program there's Accountability Bilton so I'm all for getting all the help I can get on this journey listen. We need to be asking for Hill. That's point pointblank period. I think there's this idea of the superhero black woman. I'm sorry that bitch don't exist does no star we're human human. We're not superhuman. Yes we do got some strong magical type D._N._A.. But it's still human d._N._A.. It has its is limitations. Okay so our on child looking at US talking about what used that girl magic yes. There is magic in the black girl but the black girl is still a girl and girls are human which means we not superhuman in like stuff made up on T._v.. So you cut me I bleed. I don't eat. I'm tired. I don't drink water. My black cracks okay 'cause I'm human.

"B._A.. Dot Com and the name of the episode is tragedy career breaks and Chick-fil-a so today tiffany's back yeah. It just takes her a lot to get on the show. I don't know why she's just beyond the show once a month right yeah. y'All let me know I've got I want tiffany on the show and we're GonNa talk about going back to work after our career breaks and and things we wish we would have done honour breaks and we're going to talk about our biggest life takeaways since last season's episode which was last year so welcome to the show you thank you for having me again excited yes. I've been trying to get you though no to come back. You already stated me enough. It's shade when I love you so so much and I didn't what you around all the time. Tiffany is like the little sister always went always wanted a little sister her an older brother because I thought the way it could work is that my older brother would be like a year or two older than me so I would date his his friends and then my little sister would be my best he and she would just do everything I did and we would just hang out all the time and be together all the time and I know people are like put on my friends. They have siblings. They like yes. Feelings are overrated. God bless them but sometime you so tiffany is definitely the little sister I always wanted and guide you ask and and he provides now I just need like an older brother who has really smart and find in successful with money and education in very smart friends so I gotta work on that one. We gotta find Tiffany last year. We both on career breaks live in our best lives and resting up for you know going back. So so what have you learned since you are now back in the Matrix of Corporate America or is this episode today like for me. I definitely have learned that I need to be the intentional with what I'm going to spend my time working on and that I need to be in tune with what my spirit really wants me to do like like right now. I'm really on a faith walk so egg now that you're back at work. What are your thoughts start with the positive the positive thoughts now that I'm back working yes <hes> I would say the need to be in the moment? Just live in the moment folks folks. I feel like we a lot of time focused on what's to come and a lot of time reflecting on what is happening on some levels is necessary but sometimes we do that too much and we just don't enjoy the moment and so I had a lot of great moment throughout my career bake and if I could do it again I think I would okasan being the president a little bit more. So how are you trying to implement that today. So I'm far from perfect at it. I I think sometimes it's just stopping it being comfortable with having time with myself meaning. I'm not worried about work and my face is not in the laptop. I'm not even necessarily you know shipping with friends or anything like that but you bidding still and really reflecting on everything that I have to be great before right right now. Instead of reflecting on what I don't.

"Happy sunday. Everybody. I have a great show for you today, and it was all prompted by a listener named Kimberly. So in April, I got this Email from Kimberly. And she wrote, please address ageism for older black women over the age of fifty five in the workplace, I think your podcast, this week, ignores this huge glaring problem for older women workers, who no longer, quote unquote, make the bosses dick hard, and he doesn't want to either, and he doesn't want to either promote or higher odor, female workers. So that's why some of us who have bills to pay grandchildren to help raise health problems. They quitting. And letting guide do whatever won't address that was really glide insulting to older workers who have a complete. Different set of workplace problems. Then younger workers, do thank you. So, I feel like Kimberly gave me a bit of a read there. I never intend to leave anyone out this show is for black women in corporate America, regardless of your age. However, I wanna make clear to everyone this show. The core audience is people aged twenty five to about forty and I'm forty one so I wanna make sure that I hear you out. And so if anybody out there feels like I'm being glide or insulting, I know my heart. That is not my intention and second Email me because guess what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna talk about it. So Kimberly s promised in my Email reply to you today. We are discussing ageism. Now. I know that most of my corporate warriors listening out. There are not at the age where they have to worry about ageism, but in the blink of an eye will be. Grown grown and life. Throws us all curve balls. So we're going to talk about this today and get real about what work is like, as we age. So I want you to share this episode with your aunt, t's, your mom's your granny's, and keep all these tips in the back of your mind because God willing, you too will get quote unquote old. However, you know let go. This. Yeah. Turned forty eight years old. Thank you. Tell them about white girlfriends, 'cause they give us the love, you know,.

"It. But I'm gonna be honest about how corporate America work. There are always politics. They're always going to be politics. They're always going to be pushed back that said. There are places where your values as a human being as a person as a professional might be better reflected somewhere else than the space. You're in right now. And that's something your sponsor can help you understand every single workshop. I do every single lecture. I did every single talk. I get I always ended up into see because I don't think any of us ever going to survive in the workplace if we continue having to wear a mask and become into work. If we continue having to compromise what our values are. And what we believe? Now, I'm not saying that everyone was every value in every single system the world, he's become in, and we can like where are cut off jeans and our flops, and you know, we're have that's not what I was actually fantasy. What I'm saying is what is most important to you in your value system. What if a core values that you have? And when you. Go into work. Are you having to compromise those values or when you go into work? Are you really seeing a base where those values can shine? Are you seeing space where you can shine because of that? And that's so important because as you can around to that that helps your mental face that work that helps her psychological safety at work. That's what you need survive. And that's what you need to thrive. And so that's the kind of support I will give to you. So if you're struggling, and if you're trying to navigate the politics, and if you have your people in place, and if you know, what your talent isn't as you know, what your unique value add to this company, as you know, however, large or small your department is then you can navigate that. I believe that you can I know that you can. But you don't have to because there might be other places out there where you are better suited to work at or you're better suited to fit into who. Don't musk yourself into a top situation. Just because you think you have to but don't leave a situation. Just because you think they're ready to kick you. Out by for your space, and then leave when you realize that your mental head space can't take it anymore. Show. I just I want to thank you for just being avoi- sauce in those base. I wanna thank you for being a truth Sayer in this space because I think a lot of us walk into the office. And we're like, okay, am I crazy isn't me. No. It's not you. You're not crazy. This is happening. This is what's happening. And I love how you've laid out the why thank you ended. So I really appreciate that one last question for you. If you could go back right when you were coming out of law school, what advice with one key nugget? You would give to yourself about men and your career but win. Linnea? I would tell myself that I that you're getting is not going to be the Charlotte. You're leaving with at the end of the day. Whether it's the positions going to change or the company is going to change or your actual, you know role in life is going to change whatever it is the person that you're walking in that door. Your first day is going to evolve and she's going to change, and she's going to be better, and she's going to know more. But what I would tell her when she walked in that door is to be open to look outside that world and see this is the space. I'm in right now, how am I going to succeed year? How am I going to move up in my face here who am I going to talk to so I can succeed here. How am I going to be an expert here because we have to visualize our success, especially for a lot of young black women who are working in spaces where they don't see people who look like them at the top where they don't base for them at the top. It is so important to visually. Is what success looks like? I grew up in the Caribbean. I didn't grow up in the state. I grew up in the Caribbean and in the Caribbean. When I grew up I grew up in Jamaica. There are thousands hundreds of thousands almost two million people who look like me or successful or successful black people on our ad in our stores in our schools and our companies, and so I wish I could give every single young black professionals that feeling of knowing that when I enter face eye candy a success. That's what I want to tell myself if I was going back, you know, let's say ten years ago that when I walked in the door. I can be successful at this. I can star at this. I can award this. And that's what we need to do. Because all this is hard work, and it's long and the rewards are infrequent, but we can do this. You can do this new can be success. That's what I would tell myself, and we meet. Need people to do this? We need people to stay the course because we need representations. So that another ten twenty years from now there somebody who is born right here in the states, but they have that experience of seeing themselves reflected in leadership positions and in different visualizations of success. And we need people to stay. The course that's why do this podcast because I want people to be encouraged every week to stay. The course not all of us can leave and start on companies. Somebody's gotta stay in the warrior. And it's again, there's a lot of headwinds against this. Right. There's a lot of headwinds against us. You know, but you are this. We're record us the day after the sag awards. So I'm going to quote me this Mona Chad. We both manure young black and gifted and you can do it. And we are here to support you do it. And you have a family of fellow professionals want to see you succeed lean into that lean into that lead into that support group. Don't you're not on your own. You're not alone doing this. You can do this with help. And you can do that. Man, michelle. This has been a great conversation.
