Episode 1: Eleanor Beaton
Listen up! Especially all ambitious, driven women out there who are living with purpose and who desire to create a positive impact. Eleanor Beaton is this week’s podcast guest and you don’t want to miss it. She is an internationally recognized women’s leadership and business coach, a sought after keynote speaker and all around rock star! Below are some highlights:  Golden Nuggets: - It’s normal to have anxieties or doubts when going for a goal that’s beyond your comfort zone. Eleanor describes it as “fighting inertia” and navigating it on a daily basis. It can also be especially insidious for women and show up in different costumes. Know that you are on the right track! - Growing up in a small town in Nova Scotia Eleanor felt like an outsider. Many of us can relate to this. While it was tough, this experience fostered a strong sense of individual thought, experience and expression. - Great women achievers tend to have two things in common: one is that they have the ability to navigate loneliness; and two they are proactive in uncovering those supporters who support them for who they are becoming and not who they think they should be. - Women already are proven leaders, we need to learn the art of power and influence.  - Your opinion of yourself is what matters most, not the opinions of the nameless masses.  - Learn to be an active participant and observer of your self-doubt rather than interpreting it as you lacking something.  - Tune in to see what book has recently inspired Eleanor. - There is so much more! Tune in to find out what this powerhouse entrepreneur has to say.    Producers: Tanya Chedrawy & Michael Boyd Host: Tanya Chedrawy tanyamedia.com  Guest: Eleanor Beaton Recorded through the facilities of Podcast Atlantic Sound Recording and Editing by Michael Boyd of Podcast Atlantic Follow us on Twitter: @TanyaChedrawy Connect with us on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tanyachedrawy/ Music Far Away by Pre Kiilstofte Logo Created by Tanya Chedrawy Email us at: tanya@tanyamedia.com
