This is it, you're finally going to do that one thing that terrifies you, but makes you feel excited and alive. Then, the small voice inside your head starts: "You're going to fail. Everyone will know you're a fraud. You're going to hurt yourself. Who do you think you are? No one will care about this..." Today, we're going to shut that voice up once and for all!
Where was I five years ago? At the company headquarters of D Company, 1st Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment located in the Center of the Universe -- AKA, Fort Bragg, North Carolina. I had the honor of being Dog 6, the company commander of D Company, responsible for everything D Company did or didn’t do. At the time, we were about to go to the field for a week’s worth of training, including marksmanship and war-fighting.
Last week's episode with Kathleen Booth about carefrontations got me thinking about the different types of conversations we have every single day as creatives at IMPACT.
You all know her. She's the perfect mom. The perfect wife. She looks gracious on the treadmill and never ever sweats. She shows up to meetings perfectly prepared and everything she says is witty, smart -- and it's just nauseating.
Marcella is off this week, so I invited Kathleen Booth -- IMPACT's VP of Marketing and the host of our Inbound Success Podcast (check it out!) -- to join me once again.
Having kids isn't usually something we really start doing until after we're married. It seems like today most of us put our careers and education first. We plan our future around our career paths, retirement, when we will buy our first house, a new car -- but, we don't talk about planning for a family. That's what we want to change with today's episode of MarketHer.
My time with IMPACT has been spent building a team of pretty remarkable people. I first joined the company in August of 2016 as the Strategist on a POD - aka what we call teams here.
We’ve talked about change before in the big, global, life-quaking kind of way. Switching careers. Going to a new company. Starting a family. Moving. But today, we’re going to address a different kind of change that's specific to the workplace. Where you’re not moving, changing your life, or pivoting your career by choice. Instead, you’re going about your business one day at work, and suddenly change starts happening to you and around you -- without warning.
