Women and Leadership
In this episode, we welcome Belinda Clemmensen, B.Sc., M.Ed., PCC Belinda is the Founder and CEO of Women’s Leadership Intensive.  She believes women are not only capable of changing the world, but that we will be a driving force in making it happen.  When we look out at the world, we see that change is needed and that we can help. Many women feel that we don't fit the traditional leadership box. We sense there is a better way, and that we have more to contribute, but don’t always know how to reach that potential.  As a leader, it is essential to know who you are and lead as YOU. With 25 years of experience, she understands how to help leaders uncover, and step into, their potential.  She helps leaders connect to that place of purpose where their unique strengths meet a need in the world and serve others. This passionate belief is what drives her as a leadership development professional and what led her to build the Women's Leadership Intensive; our mission to inspire, empower, support, and equip women to lead the change the world needs. Being a relentless champion of purpose-driven leaders is at her core. In addition to founding WLI, she is a proud co-founder of the Leader Coach Intensive, a unique program that builds world-class coaches – Tomorrow’s Leaders Today. Some of the topics that we cover in this episode: Women in leadership. How living in alignment with our values and sense of purpose supports us to live with mindfulness and fulfilment. Values and purpose-driven leadership. Why it is more important than ever for women in particular to connect values and sense of purpose with leadership. How motherhood affects our leadership style.

Authenticity
Authentic: true to one’s own personality, spirit or character. (source: Merriamwebster.com) Joined again by the “Magnet for magnificence” Lindsay Johnson, the topic of this episode is Authenticity.  Cheryl and Lindsay tackle the issue of being real about what we want and having the guts to go out and create it, ask for it, or do it. Lindsay Johnson, aka The Radical Connector, is a 20-year entrepreneurship nerd and business strategist who's obsessed with teaching new entrepreneurs business skills and strategies for turning their brilliance into a profitable business by working less and playing more. Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Lindsay watched as her family struggled to balance working hard to succeed with burning out and sacrificing their quality of life. She was determined to crack the code to faster growth and more financial abundance with less work; more play and less struggle. Lindsay uses her online business school and private coaching to teach her clients how to use entrepreneurship as a tool to build the life of their dreams while also stepping into deeper radical self-acceptance as a business owner. This episode is fun and informative with lots of insight: How the journey of self-acceptance affects your business. How to grow a business online. Knowing when unfollows/unsubscribes is an indication that you are doing something right. Understanding the need to test and experiment with social media. How to deliver information differently to avoid offending. The need to understand your customer’s journey. All that and so much more!

People-Pleasers
People-pleaser: a person who has an emotional need to please others often at the expense of his or her own needs or desires.  (source: merriam-webster.com) According to psychologytoday.com, there are 10 signs that you might be a people-pleaser: You pretend to agree with everyone. You feel responsible for how other people feel. You apologize often. You feel burdened by the things you have to do. You feel you can’t say no. You feel uncomfortable if someone is angry at you. You act like the people around you. You need praise to feel good. You go to great lengths to avoid conflict. You don’t admit when your feelings are hurt. You guessed it!  In this episode of Navigating Mindfulness, we are talking about ‘People-Pleasers’.  Cheryl has a guest co-host, Lindsay Johnson aka The Radical Connector. They are joined by special guest Elle Rosher. Elle Rosher is a mindset coach for millennial women entrepreneurs who want to overcome people-pleasing and self-doubt to freely live their lives the way they want. Once a constant people-pleaser herself, she recognized the detrimental impact of living a life constantly striving to fulfill others' expectations. While completing her neuroscience degree at the University of Toronto, she gained valuable insight into the brain’s neurocircuitry and methods useful to alter unhelpful thoughts and prioritize our well-being. In her downtime, you can usually find Elle cuddled up on the couch reading a romance novel or dancing to her favourite tunes. We’re so excited to present this episode to you!  Some of the topics include: Worth vs. self-worth Setting boundaries Codependency And of course, we share lots of anecdotes and stories of our own as we have worked through many of these issues. Join us for this relevant and important topic. We would love to hear your thoughts on this episode! Looking to connect?

How do you know it's time to move on?
How do you know it’s time to move on? It’s important to take time to check in with yourself.  Not only on a personal level but also professionally. Ask yourself how you are feeling, acknowledge it and develop your course of action. Some of the topics we cover in this episode: How the pandemic has forced some to reconsider their professional path. Pivot the business vs. moving on from it. How to know when to continue the evolution of yourself and your business. Recognizing when you continue doing something, or offering something out of obligation instead of what makes sense for the growth of your business. Do you ever ask yourself, what would I do if I had to quit my company or sell my business?  If your answer is something along the lines of “exactly the same thing” then you know you’re on the right path.  If not, then you may need to take a look at what you would rather be doing. Both Cheryl and Liza share their experiences with this topic.  Cheryl talks about how she has decided to stop consulting because it no longer brings satisfaction to her life and to focus more on her Affirmation products.  Liza has chosen to empower her team to lead the way in one of her businesses so she can focus her energies on other endeavours. Please join us on this journey of building businesses while living a mindful life.

Money
Money: “a current medium of exchange in the form of coins and banknotes; coins and banknotes collectively.” In this episode of Navigating Mindfulness, we talk about money. We discuss the importance of setting financial goals and opening ourselves up to receive.  We have to shift our outlook, take a macro look at the state of the business and make decisions. It can be difficult to see opportunities when we are continuously working on the daily needs of a business.  Recently, Cheryl decided to take a serious look at where she was spending time and has since started blocking time in her calendar dedicated to the items that she knew needed her attention. We discuss the three ways to generate income: Work for others. Leverage income ie. Real estate, stocks, etc. Generate income from a business.

Delegating
Does the thought of delegating tasks make you slightly nauseated?  If so, then this is the episode of Navigating Mindfulness for you! This week Cheryl shares her evolution from being unable to delegate tasks related to her business to reaping the rewards and sometimes experiencing the challenges of delegating. Some key learnings: Set clear expectations. Open communication. Check in regularly. Having the power to delegate certain tasks, means you have the opportunity to focus your energies on tasks requiring specific skills and tasks that you enjoy. In order to grow your business, it may be necessary to delegate because it can become overwhelming for one person to do it all.  If you’re always playing catch up, it’s impossible to get ahead. Some of the tasks that Cheryl has recently found the courage to delegate: Social media management. Order fulfillment Channel research It’s been a long bumpy road, however it is important to learn, regroup and move forward. Looking to connect?

Drawing A Salary
Costing - Pricing - Compensation These are the topics on today’s episode of Navigating Mindfulness hosted by Cheryl Sutherland, owner of PleaseNotes and a noted public speaker and Liza Magcale owner of eLiaise and Delegate Wisely Consulting.   The two entrepreneurs share their own experiences with building successful businesses from small startups to the successful entities they are today. We discuss: How to cost out a goods-based business vs a service-based business. What costs to include in the cost-of-goods. The reason why many entrepreneurs don’t pay themselves and why they should. How to price your goods. How to price your services as a freelancer. Cheryl and Liza share some of their own experiences with these concepts and how they navigated through.  They have taken very different approaches to their businesses but have both achieved high levels of success demonstrating that there is more than one way to build a business.  The most important piece of advice is “Be clear about what you want and go for it.” If you haven’t already, we suggest you familiarize yourself with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It is a motivational theory that suggests that in order for a human to move up the hierarchy, one must satisfy their most basic needs first.  We’ve included a link below if you’d like to learn more. https://www.simplypsychology.org/maslow.html Interested in a good read?  Check out Mike Michalowicz’s book ‘Profit First: Transform Your Business From a Cash-Eating Monster to a Money-Making Machine’.

Relationships with Special Guest Janice Lee
On this episode of Navigating Mindfulness, we are joined by the fabulous Janice Lee as we talk about ‘Relationships’.  While there are many types of relationships, we focus on ‘Relationship with Self’ and ‘Relationship with Others’.   Relationship with self:  important for your own well-being and imperative to creating healthy relationships with others.  Be kind to yourself and listen to your body.  Invest time in yourself, just a few minutes a day, and you notice small changes.  For instance, Janice has a daily meditation practice to ground herself.   Relationship with others: According to Northwestern Medicine, healthy and happy relationships with others leads to less stress, better healing, healthier behaviors, better sense of purpose and a longer life.  All great reasons to foster healthy relationships with friends, family, partners, co-workers and business partners.  These relationships take work and consistent nurturing but they are worth the effort.   These times have been challenging to say the least, with stay-at-home orders and limited interactions with others outside of our homes.  We have all found new ways of coping and innovating methods for maintaining and building networks and important relationships.  We discuss these challenges and how we have adjusted and improved our communication.   Reading recommendation: ‘The Leader Who Had No Title’ by Robin Sharma “Regardless of what you do within your organization and the current circumstances of your life, the single most important fact is that you have the power to show leadership. Wherever you are in your career or life, you should always play to your peak abilities. This book shows you how to claim that staggering power, as well as transform your life--and the world around you--in the process.” Our special guest, Janice Lee is a performance coach who mentors and guides corporate professionals to achieve outstanding professional and personal results through transformational mindset techniques and practical applications. She has over 15 years of enterprise experience in progressive leadership roles across, sales, strategy and insights. Janice has worked with multi-nationals such as Unilever, Wrigley and ACNielsen in Canada and Hong Kong. Janice started her journey into personal development in 2015 when work threw her a curve ball and she got stuck in a rut. Since then she’s made it her mission to help professionals find and achieve success with a sense of purpose. Janice is an avid traveler (in the best of times!) with a fondness for cheese, wine, impromptu meet ups, 90s music and carpool karaoke.  Cheryl Sutherland is the founder of PleaseNotes.  is a graduate and active participant in personal growth and leadership programs created by organizations such as PSI Seminars, University of Santa Monica, Burklyn Global, and Motivating the Masses.  Liza Magcale is the owner and director of eLiaise Inc and Delegate Wisely Consulting.  She is also the COO at DotFusion - Digital Innovation.  Liza loves building awesome communities while creating wonderful experiences and developing growth strategies.  She is also a participant in growth and leadership programs and believes in maintaining a work/life balance for her and her daughter.   Looking to connect?

Clubhouse
Are you in the Club? Clubhouse:  is an audio-based social media app. The company describes itself as "a new type of social product based on voice [that] allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world." In short, Clubhouse is an invitation-only audio chat platform.  According to Backlinko.com there are 10 million weekly active users on the platform.  This is up 600,000 members from December of 2020.  Incredible growth in a short period of time!  It has gained immense popularity in part due to the exclusive nature of the platform. The platform also presents itself as a more relaxed forum that allows participants to simply listen to the speakers or to “get up on stage” and share the platform.  As a user you can select the types of rooms you are interested in and you receive notification when there is a room starting.  The user can quietly leave the room at any point. How can Clubhouse become a tool for building businesses?  The platform presents an opportunity for business owners to connect with leaders of industry, specialists and experts in a variety of fields.  Occasionally there are opportunities for business pitches that generate real investment. Cheryl and Liza are both early adopters of the platform.  As entrepreneurs, it is vital for them to stay on top of the latest networking tools.  Cheryl hosts her own room on Sunday evenings called ‘Create A Life You Love’ where attendees are encouraged to come onstage and be guided through a mindful conversation and set intentions for the week ahead.  It is on this platform that Liza has met some of her podcasts’ special guests.  It is a great way to network and meet people who share common values and interests. In this episode of Navigating Mindfulness, Cheryl and Liza explore the Clubhouse platform as a networking tool, talk about the “whisper campaign'' nature of the marketing and discuss tips on using the platform effectively.

Personal Growth Principles
Today we chat about Personal Growth Principles with our special guest, Monica Villarreal. We focus on the journey from a “scarcity mindset” to an “abundance mindset” and how that change can affect your entire life. Monica Villarreal is a Certified Health Coach located in California however she has a thriving online business and offers coaching to people located all over.  Ten years ago, Monica was not living her best life.  A lifetime of living with a scarcity mindset had left Monica overweight and unhappy.  After a disastrous meeting with someone who thought she would be unable to fulfill her professional obligations, Monica realized that something had to change.  She started working out at a small gym with the goal of losing 10lbs.  Realizing that goal, she decided to lose another 10lbs.  And so it went from there.  Monica made small lifestyle changes that added up to a bigger change. Monica’s dedication to her healthy-self, has evolved into five years of success.  She has transformed not only her body but also her mindset, leading to a more confident version of herself.  Now she has transformed her personal passion into a coaching career to help others facing similar challenges to become their best self.

Relationships with guest May Rabano aka Strong Bikini Mom
Cheryl and Liza chat with May Rabano aka Strong Bikini Mom. Coach May is a Certified Trainer and Core Specialist who helps individuals that are struggling to lose belly fat.   She helps moms who have had two or more babies.  They are embarrassed because they still look pregnant, pee a little when they laugh, cough or sneeze, and hide under baggy clothing.  She also helps Dads who want to become more active but can't do certain activities because they suffer from low back pain.  Coach May guides them in strengthening their core so they can shrink their waistline, feel confident, and be their best for their children..* In this episode, we talk about how relationships affect our journey and how to navigate when embarking on a new venture.  As the mother of three young children, May tried all the latest workout trends to lose that "baby belly", including a most grueling boot camp that she did 5 days a week for 9 months! After learning that the belly was actually Diastasis Recti, May learned how to not only heal it but also uses that knowledge to help other women.  With the full support of her family, May decided to leave the corporate world and pursue health and fitness as a full-time career.

Human Design with guest Goddess Cami
Cheryl and Liza are joined by Camille Telecia, aka Goddess Cami, aka The Intentional Goddess to discuss Human Design. Human Design is the study of our energetic auras - a guide for how we're meant to most powerfully utilize our energy in the world and how we're wired to make decisions, as well as a blueprint highlighting our inherent gifts. In this episode, we have an enlightening chat about how our type, Manifestor, Generator, Manifesting-Generator, Projector, or Reflector affects not only the way we do business but also our success in our endeavors.  By understanding your type, you are better equipped to recognize opportunities for growth and success. A little bit about Camille: A believer in personal development and empowerment for many years now. Passionate about empowering women to heal and grow. An intentional goddess is a woman who takes her healing into her own hands. My intention is healing, growth empowerment, love, joy, and peace. This is my intention for myself, so that I can be an example, a guide, and a teacher of these things for all the women/goddesses that cross my path.  I have "chosen" this particular path really because I didn't have a choice. (LOL) This is a spirit-led and spirit-guided move for me.  This concept, this name, these products, and services were all shown to me by a spirit shortly after completing a spirit walk in October 2018. I had been working on building an entrepreneurship-centered business, but kept feeling the pull in a different direction. For a year,  my heart had been telling me that I needed o be working with women, helping them transform and heal. For a year,  I tried to add some essence of that to my existing business with little success because in truth, it was not the right space for this vision. During my 5-day spirit walk, I felt more connected to the Universe, Mother Earth, and my ancestors than I ever have.  On my final day, I stood on the beach, feeling the energy of my ancestors, and the pull on my heart, I closed my eyes, and said yes. Yes to their guidance and yes to my new mission and path. In that moment, I released my hold on all the things that weren't serving me or weren't aligned with my purpose. I asked the Universe to show me the way, and that was the day that the Intentional Goddess was conceived.

Obstacles
Liza and Cheryl discuss obstacles - in life and in business. "When we don't continue having conversations, topics become heavy". Recent events, protests and riots, have brought up the conversations regarding racism and anti-black racism. Our hosts discuss specifically how they, or people in their lives have experienced racism and how it has shaped the discussions they are having and how it has affected decisions they've made in their personal lives and their professional lives.    They explore the concepts of prejudice and bias and how it affects people when building businesses.  There are barriers to success for minority business owners, whether it's a difficulty getting start up capital or attracting talent and customers.  Recently the Canadian government has created programs to encourage support of minority and specifically black-owned businesses.  It is a hot topic as some question "Why not all small businesses?".  Liza and Cheryl discuss their thoughts on the rationale behind these types of programs.    As usual it is an interesting discussion with personal experiences and anecdotes.  We ponder, we laugh and we learn.
