Starting over in our businesses or careers is often one of the least-thought-about aspects that many powerhouse professionals ever consider. In fact, once you get into your “stride” and begin reaping the rewards of your hard-earned success, the thought of starting over may never come to mind – unless you are forced to face it.

My guest today is an award-winning entrepreneur, Yasmina Azhari. Yasmina is the Founder, Owner, and General Manager of Mira Trading, LLC, the Vice President and Partner of Trade Coordination Office, and the founder of her newest company, Al Yam International Commercial Brokers. She has been recognized as one of the Top Entrepreneurs in Syria and is the Honorary Council of the Netherlands in Syria. This powerhouse businesswoman and entrepreneur built a highly successful career for herself – until her country broke out into a civil war, forcing her to flee the country and seek safety in another country where she decided to pick up the pieces of her amazing career and start all over.

Today, Yasmina shares her story of starting her entrepreneurial journey over, what it was like, and what motivated her to continue moving forward to achieve success once again. She also shares some valuable insight and tips on how to reinvent yourself – or your career path – as an entrepreneur to achieve success.

 

“Try and fail, but never fail to try.” – Yasmina Azhari

  • How her fortune wasn’t in her bottom line – but in her network
  • Why you can’t sit back and wait for opportunities for success
  • You never lose. You have to win or learn. It’s all experiences

Yasmina’s Top 3 Success Tips to Reinvent Yourself as an Entrepreneur:

  1. Teach yourself and learn how to love what you are involved in – even if it’s not what you dreamed.

We all have those moments – the moments in our business that totally frustrate us, drive us crazy, or burn us at our core. Minor – and major – frustrating moments happen periodically in our business. They are completely unavoidable events, but how you handle them and use them to improve yourself, your business, and impact the world around you is important and within your control.

Today, I want to share with you some tips on how you can glean information from those frustrating moments in your life and business as well as how to make these moments your best friend while growing your business.

“Frustration is completely inevitable, but frustration is also a source of some incredible information.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Coping with “mini-failures” and using them as a source of information
  • How to use pain points in your business to discover your next steps
  • Using your frustrations to map your forward momentum
  • How frustration is a sign of growth and helps challenge your limits
  • Why it’s important to learn h ow to get comfortable with the discomfort
  • Leaning into your frustrations, but looking at them with interest

 

3 Critical Pieces of Information from Frustration:

  1. Frustration shows you where you need to go
  2. It paints a picture of your progress
  3. It teaches you where you need to approach your life with a greater level of acceptance

Going through a challenging, potentially life-destroying situation is never easy. No know knows this better than my guest, Jas Boothe, founder of the non-profit organization – Final Salute Inc – for homeless female veterans. Jas is an Army Reserves veteran with 17 years of military experience as well as a cancer survivor. She has been recognized by Oprah Winfrey, People Magazine, and CNN for her work within her organization.

Jas joins me on the show today to share her story of overcoming some of the biggest challenges in her life – including being discharged from the military, being diagnosed with an aggressive form of head, neck, and throat cancer, as well as losing her home during Hurricane Katrina. She explains how these experiences motivated her to start her organization and dedicate herself to helping over 2,000 female military veterans each year find safe, suitable housing.

How do you get from where you are in business to where you want to be? What are the keys to leveling up in your business and creating the path that leads to the success you envisioned for yourself, your business, and your career?

Today, I’m talking with Joy Chudacoff. Joy is a highly-acclaimed, sought-after business strategist for female entrepreneurs. She primarily works with already established and successful female business owners that are looking for ways to reach their next level of success, but aren’t quite sure what their next steps should be to get them there. She is the leader for Business Lifestyle Design for Women and has been an entrepreneur for over 20 years.

Joy is the founder of a business consultant company called Smart Women, Smart Solutions, and for the last 12 years, she has been serving women as a professional, certified coach and consultant. On today’s episode, she shares with us what it is that keeps women from achieving their million-dollar goals and the different strategies they need to help push them to achieve that goal. She explains that the strategies you used to get you to where you are today may not help you reach your next level of success – and the key areas you need to focus on to help you reach your success goals.

 

“What got you here won’t take you there.” Joy Chudacoff

  1. Ask yourself: What am I pretending not to know?

When you look at how you structure your days, are you setting yourself up for balance and rejuvenation from the moment you wake up until the time you go to bed? Are you really creating a system or schedule that allows you to achieve a peaceful, tranquil, beautiful life – or are you structuring your day for chaos, stress, anxiety – or worse – burnout?

My guest today is Tara Marino. Tara is the creator of the Femme Types, an internal technology helping women realize their full potential while receiving their beautiful life. She is the owner of Elegant Femme, a company dedicated to helping women around the world live a life of beauty, travel, and soul. She joins me today to share why she believes it’s so important for women to structure their day around the three core traits that ever woman possesses. She explains what those traits are – which she calls the Femme Types – and how identifying and honoring each of them every day have helped her move out of depression and into a beautiful life she enjoys living.

 

"If we are not honoring who we really are, that affects us.” – Tara Marino

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Integrating your human experiences, aligning it with your soul’s calling, and how it can help you overcome obstacles and adversity
  • How journaling has helped Tara through the depression of losing her first child
  • The Femme Types – what they are and why you should honor them every day
  • The “Fo-Types” – what they are and how they counteract the balance of the Femme Types – if you let them
  • What is Femme Flow and what it looks like for Tara
  • Staying disciplined and structuring your day around your Femme Flow
  • Why Tara decided to move to Paris – and how she made her dream a reality
  • The power of saying “little yeses” in the direction of your desires

 

Tara’s Words of Wisdom:

  1. Slow down and think about the circumstances in your life and how it might assist you in recognizing who you really are. Ask yourself: What if this was to serve me in some way? How would I choose to have it serve me? Really go into that space inside and feel the possibility of expansion.
  2. Ask yourself: What is that dream inside me? You’re here for your unique expression of who you are in the world. Go all the way!
  3. Be truly present and aware of how far you have come. Look around your life and really let it soak in. Celebrate what you have accomplished so far.

The working world has changed drastically over the last 50+ years. In the world that our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents lived and worked, it was common to step out into the work force and maintain the same job and responsibilities until they retired. Today, though, it is much more common for people in the work force to pivot their careers – and even switch the industries in which they work.

My guest today is author, public speaker, and career and business strategist, Jenny Blake. Jenny helps people move past the “burnout” phase and into careers they love. Today, we discuss how to seamlessly and continually double-down on your strengths, interests, and experience to approach career changes from a powerful place. We also discuss how to identify new opportunities that will help you develop new skills and how to run “pilot” experiments to help you figure out what to do next.

 

“Not all pivots have to be big and dramatic. Sometimes, it’s just about mapping your next move within whatever you’re currently doing.” – Jenny Blake

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How company pivots have impacted individual and millennial pivots
  • Individual ideas of “what is working” and how it evolved over generations
  • The basis of Jenny’s 4-step framework process
  • Getting traction within your organization for your pilot projects
  • Pilot examples for small business owners and entrepreneurs
  • Dealing with anxiety and a lack of clarity
  • Transitioning from intrapreneur to entrepreneur
  • Recharging habits and routines

 

Jenny’s 4-Step Pivot Framework:

  1. Step 1 – The Plant Phase – Setting the foundation
  2. Step 2 – Scanning – Looking at what’s out there related to your strengths and one-year vision
  3. Step 3 – Pilot – Small experiments to help you assess the 3 E’s: Enjoyment, Expertise, and Expansion
  4. Step 4 – Launch – The “all-in” moment

 

Pivoting Questions to Ask Yourself:

  1. What’s already working for me?
  2. What are my strengths?
  3. What are people asking my advice on the most?
  4. What do I enjoy the most?
  5. When do I feel the most “in the zone?”
  6. How am I already earning an income?
  7. Who do I already know?

As your life, your business, and your career continue to evolve, it’s common to need to make tweaks and changes within your personal and professional life to continue your journey to achieving success. Even small changes can have a significant impact on how you show up in the world.

Today, I want to share with you one small tweak that I recently made in my personal life and how it has dramatically improved my business – and my life.

By taking ownership of my daily schedule, by making a small tweak, I’ve really been able to generate great results.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How small changes in your daily routine can improve how you show up in the world
  • How outsourcing tasks and finding an accountability partner helps “free up” mental space so you can work more productively

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Ask yourself: What small tweak can I make in my daily schedule that can generate big results?
  • Ask yourself: What am I not allowing myself to consider because I think “this is the only way it works for me?”
  • Be open and fluid. Explore opportunities. Try new things.

Throughout every industry, we frequently hear successful entrepreneurs say that it’s important to be authentic in the way you present yourself to the world. But, oftentimes, the reason why being authentic and being yourself is so important and the impact it can have on your career or business is rarely discussed.

My guest today is Amanda Coolong. She is the Senior Digital Media Executive, content strategist, and serves as the Co-Chair and Head of Content for the company, Women in Technology International – a global organization and leading authority for women in the technology trade. Additionally, she is a founding partner and COO at Tech Zulu, an established podcaster, and has interviewed hundreds of the top leaders in the tech ecosystem for a wide variety of events including CES, South by Southwest, and Blog World.

Amanda joins me today to share her insight and experience on how being you – unapologetically – and being unafraid to be seen, heard, and network with others can help you grow your network and give your career and business the success boost you need in 2017.

 

“It’s okay to toot your own horn. Do not be afraid to own your own work.” – Amanda Coolong

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The things Amanda has done throughout her STEM career to excel in a technical field as a woman with a diverse, alternative background
  • The evolution of her career and the most significant turning points
  • The changes and adaptations she has made throughout her career to achieve success
  • The “soft skills” she developed and the payoffs of building a network
  • Her biggest career challenges and how she overcame them
  • The importance of having “personal cheerleaders,” mentors, coaches, and a strong support system
  • The benefits of positioning yourself as an angel investor

 

Amanda Coolong’s Advice to Women in STEM:

  1. Join WITI
  2. Support other women’s organizations in tech by joining and attending events
  3. Don’t be afraid to speak on panels
  4. Write about women in technology, the issues, the challenges, and the opportunities
  5. Get active on social media
  6. Start investing in women-led companies
  7. Invest in mentorship

 

Amanda’s Top 3 Success Tips:

  1. Be authentically you.
  2. Don’t be afraid. Fear is the mind-killer.
  3. Reach your hand out to help another woman.

You know, the power of the internet has made it very easy to start and run an amazing business, but when it comes to getting your brand visible by the right people – that can often be a bit trickier – especially for introverts. Many fierce feminine leaders know they need to put themselves out there – whether it’s producing videos, taking photos of themselves, or otherwise stepping up to the plate and claiming their awesome-ness, but they may lack the confidence in themselves, how they look, or how they present themselves to the world. And that, my fierce tribe, is what is preventing many amazing women in business from making the impact they were destined to make on the world.

Today, my guest is Colette Werden. Colette is an expert at helping passionate, purpose-driven women entrepreneurs and professionals “get visible.” She is the founder and CEO of Colette Werden Australia, an authentic personal branding expert, and a keynote speaker. Her company specializes in helping driven entrepreneurs and professionals present themselves authentically and with confidence so they can make the unique difference in their businesses, their organizations, and the world.

In today’s episode, Colette shares her insight and knowledge on the inner work that many driven female entrepreneurs and professionals in business need to do to put themselves “out there” – even as an introvert. She shares how our wardrobe often effects not only the way we think and feel about ourselves on a personal level, but also how we present ourselves to the world and build our businesses on a professional level.

 

“What we wear on the outside is a direct reflection of who we are on the inside.” – Colette Werden

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Using your wardrobe to connect with your clientele – and promote high self-esteem.
  • Evolving your wardrobe style as you continue to evolve personally and professionally.
  • Colette’s “Ratio System,” what it is, and how she uses it to help her clients.
  • Her biggest turning points while building her business.
  • The biggest challenges she has faced while building her business.
  • How she overcame her natural introverted thoughts and behaviors to put herself “out there.”

 

Colette’s Top 3 Success Factors:

  1. Commitment to purpose.
  2. Celebrating milestones and being naturally high-achieving.
  3. Going “all-in” on who she is.

Are there things in your life, business, or career that you want to achieve, but require you to step out of your comfort zone? You know what you need to do, but you’re not comfortable with doing it – so you don’t.

When we get right down to it – most of us have the same desires. We want to be financially secure, healthy, and have great relationships with those around us, but what really makes us unique are the challenges that we face and the difficulties we are willing to deal with.

Ladies, it’s time for a little tough love. Today, I want to talk to you about the importance of picking your pain – and doing it wisely.

 

All too often, it’s not the scale of our dreams that undoes us. It’s the pain that we choose.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why women often don’t step out of their comfort zone.
  • Common ways women avoid leaving their comfort zone to achieve their desires.
  • Going after what you want won’t be painless, but can often be more rewarding.
