TLS #133: What to do if you don’t like your job with Barrett Brooks (Fizzle.co)

TheLivelyShowWithBarrettBrooks

Today on The Lively Show I’m speaking with Barrett Brooks of BarrettBrooks.com and the Director of Growth & Marketing at Fizzle.co.

Like many of us, Barrett found himself unhappy at his job several months ago and thought that it may be time to make a career shift.

However, rather than follow the initial impulse to leave his current position, he took a series of steps first, that led to a totally new understanding of what was going on and what to do next.

As a result, he was able to experience immense joy and resolve some deep issues related to his work that would have simply followed him to his next position – and beyond – had he not looked inward.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is unhappy in their career right now, or anyone who wants to proactively learn about what to do when (or if) that time comes in the future.

TLS #130: Living Beyond The Social Media Expectations of the Modern Woman with Mica May (May Designs)

TheLivelyShowWithMicaMayToday on The Lively Show we are having a very real and very inspiring conversation with May Designs founder and mother of three, Mica May.

Mica is sharing openly about her journey to grow her multi-million dollar customizable notebook business, become a mother of three – including a son with down syndrome, and grapple with the perceived expectations online of what “the modern woman’s” life really looks like.

This chat also explores the two energies we have within ourselves, the yin and yang, or the “masculine” and “feminine” energies — and why I believe that our society has so much to gain from learning how to use both energies simultaneously and interchangeably.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to explore our “masculine” and “feminine” energies (or yin and yang energies) and become the most empowered version of ourselves, independent of gender.
