If you haven’t checked out MarketHer yet, this post is for you. (Or even if you love MarketHer, really!) After 9 months and 36 episodes, we’re wrapping up and reflecting on Season 1 - and we can’t wait to show you what’s next! I’ve talked quite a bit about how MarketHer got started, and a little bit about how starting a podcast has helped me grow into a better leader. Our hope is the show has been helping you just as much as it! (For newbies, check out our first post featuring Episode 1 and more about the show.)
You get 10 points if you recognize the quote in the title of this episode from The Notebook. Yes, Britt is a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks. You'll just have to forgive her cheeky humor. DiSC, Meyer-Briggs, Enneagram, and now DOPE. Here at MarketHer, we love personality tests as they help us not only know ourselves better but more importantly, help us understand the people we work with every day.
Guys! I love co-hosting MarketHer for a myriad of reasons, some of which Brie shared during in this article, but my favorite episodes are the ones when I barely speak because I'm learning so much from our guest or Ang and Brie. This is one of those episodes!
We've tackled similar topics before -- the ones where we complain that there aren't enough female bosses, CEOs, leaders having a seat at the table, etc. Well, we are at it again! This week's episode, we are talking about speakers, and particularly, women speakers.
Did you ever have had one of those moments as a little girl (or boy) when you just knew you were meant to be someone or do something great? Then, as you got older, it became even more apparent?
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!
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.
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.
