S2E23 - Parenting on Purpose with Gillian Behnke
Today we welcome Gillian Behnke, creator of Mom Camp Life to the podcast. Her and I have a wonderful conversation about being a mom, having the juggle all of the things. As a busy mom of two, Gillian cares deeply about helping other moms feel better both mentally and physically. She believes that motherhood does not equal with exhaustion, and that is possible to thrive mentally, emotionally, physically and professionally.  Episode Highlights  High performing moms hate to say no. However it is best to be comfortable with saving no and understand what to say yes to and what you cannot.   If you want something done, you as an event planner end up knowing how to figure it out. However, If it is something that you absolutely don't have to do, you absolutely can say no.  Resilience comes from taking care of your own health, both physical and mental. If you are more resilient you'll have more strength for the tough moments that do come up.  Sometimes you just take the next best step in order to keep moving forward. If you are overwhelmed, don't fear or panic.  Do as much as you can, when you can.  As a leader, Gillian shares that she encourages everyone to be authentic leader.   Gillian encourages event planners to make recommendations on a solution, versus questioning the problem. Practicing the muscle of problem solving really develops you in a more useful way as leader.   Quote of the day: If it isn't a hell yes, then it is a hell no.  Gillian's words of advice to event planners: Be kind to yourself. Prioritize your Health. Especially now where we are seeing all these changes, your mental and physical health are number one.  Links and Resources  Mom Camp Life  Around the Fire Podcast  Stress Less At Your Best Course  The Big Leap, Gary Hendricks (Gillian's Favorite Book)  Thank you for listening!   If you enjoyed this podcast, please go ahead and give it a thumbs up, 5-star rating.

S2E22 - Fitness Chat with Jillian Lama
In this episode of the Planners on Purpose podcast, I speak with Jillian Lama certified life and fitness coach, and the creator of The Body You Crave Method. Jillian was able to bring forth some tangible tips on how event planners can manage their physical, and mental health.  Episode Highlights Give yourself compassion and grace and recognize that your brain can create unhealthy habits, but you have the power to change them. When overwhelmed, try Jillian's Think, Feel, Act method 1) Think about the situation 2) Assess what your feelings are 3) Act appropriately. There are many things that we can't control, but we can only think about the things that we can control To combat stress, you should recognize where the stress is really coming from in your life. It not about things needing to be perfect, but how can I setup my exception on something is always going to go wrong and be ready to adapt when things go wrong. Our thoughts are ultimately the silent killer of our health. Get your thoughts right, to get your health right. People make mistakes, it's all about how we can work through them and troubleshoot them when they come up is what matters. To manage overwhelm, come into the awareness that change is inevitable. To build healthy habits, make small steps to get the best success. Recognize what works best for your body and ensure to put yourself first by making sure your cup is filled first. When burnout happens, it's okay and perhaps time to take a step backward and refill your cup. Start looking for all of the ways that you are shaming yourself and shift into neutral or something positive You are going to serve others the best when you feel that you are at your best.

S2E21 - Talking Diversity and Inclusion with Ashanti Bentil-Dhue
In this interview we catch up with brilliant mind Ashanti Bentil-Dhue, co-founder of Black in Events and Diversity Ally, and Founder & Director of EventMind. Ashanti takes us through the importance of having an inclusive workplace in the events industry.  Episode Highlights Many event organizations aren't quite there yet with being diverse and more inclusive.  There is usually a set time and place when an organization is at the level of being aware of diversity needs within their company and events. Diversity Ally provides consultancy in terms of organizations to help them become more diverse. Most of the diversity work that is needed in the industry is a mindset approach vs solutions oriented. This work is more about changing the attitudes, believes, ideas and ways of doing things. Companies should be ethically diverse and inclusive in the way that they get their results. To have a conversation with your organization consider doing a blind survey or hire a hire a diversity and inclusion specialist to facilitate. If you are appointing a diversity committee, ensure that its members build trust and respect with others outside of the committee. Also ensure they have the necessary skillset to have important discussions needed. After you listen and learn, consider your next steps in your organization and make a plan to move forward for change.

S2E20 - Talking Virtual Events with Kera Wasserbach
In this episode I speak with Kera Wasserbach all about virtual events. Kera is the co-founder of On The Edge Events and Virtual Events Experts and has a wealth of knowledge with managing and engaging with audiences virtually.  Episodes Highlights Virtual events needs to be an experience just as the live events is an experience. Embrace the live virtual experience and the need to really engage with your audience. Virtual events have a larger audience than in-person events, so having a strategy around how you manage this wider audience is key. Having a breakout component within your virtual event, is so crucial for engagement.  Try adding games, prizes, or virtual swag to increase engagement. Having a virtual event producer is key in ensuring that a virtual event runs smoothly. Use the technologies that your clients are approved to use and operate it to your advantage. Learn the opportunities that are out there, even if you are feeling stuck right now. The way to get unstuck is to embrace what's moving forward.  Make sure you are in the game.

S2E19 - The Importance of Journaling with Mai Oliphant
In this episode of the podcast, I was able to sit down and have a talk with journaling expert, Mai Oliphant from Shape Mai Life. Mai helps people to use journaling to heal and flourish. We live in uncertain times, and aren't sure of how the end of the year will turn out, much less how 2021 will run. Many event planners have lost jobs, or are working feverishly to protect theirs. Journaling and the unique way that Mai delivers her story can give us a tool to get through some of these tough times. Episode highlights Sometimes we wait until when everything is bottled up to journal, but being consistent and making it a habit, makes it more effective. You do not need to be a writer in order to journal. Journaling is your conversation with yourself, and has nothing to do with your writing skills. It has everything to do with you being open and honest with yourself. You can do journaling anywhere, take a quick note on your phone if you need to. Journal prompts can help prompt your thoughts and is an easy way to start journaling. Make the habit of journaling attractive by having a nice journal to write in. Schedule your journaling around something that you already have a habit of doing to ensure you can start. Journal what you will say "yes" or "no" to in order to confirm clear boundaries. Idea: Make an intention list on what you will or won't accept when dealing with situations or clients. It isn't too late to start journaling. Start wherever you're at. Links & Resources Shape Mai Life  Mai's Journaling Prompts Mai's Journaling Workshop Atomic Habits, James Clear Planners on Purpose Book Club Thank you for Listening! Appreciate all of you that joined by listening to this episode. After listening to this podcast, will you take a try at journaling?

S2E18 - How to Use Atomic Habits to Achieve Your Goals
In this episode we discuss how to use Atomic Habits to achieve your goals. Recently in our book club, we discussed the book Atomic Habits by James Clear. It was an immensely transformational read that helped us understand not only what habits are, but how to craft good habits, and dismantle old ones. Enjoy the listen. Episode Highlights A habit is a routine or behavior that is performed frequently. Each habit can be broken down into four components: Cue, Craving, Response, and Reward Four laws of behavior change can help your form good habits, those laws are: Make It obvious, Make it attractive, Make it easy, and Make it satisfying In order to break a bad habit, here are the four elements: Make it invisible, Make it Unattractive, Make it difficult, Make it unsatisfying If you really want to form a good habit in a very easy way, downscale your desirable habit into 2 minutes or less Habit stacking can be pretty beneficial when you want to really make a big impact with all of those good habits that you are creating.

S2E17 - Talking Leadership with Amy Branger
In this episode, I talk with Amy Branger. Amy is an executive coach and management consultant and has had many positions including working with Presidents and Governors. This episode we discuss leadership and well being and the challenges that both of those affect women, specifically those in midlife. I encourage you to listen and let me know what you think of our discussion by clicking the voice message button or link below. Episode Highlights When managing up you have to anticipate what that person is afraid of, and help them feel better about it. This will help you with credibility and relationship in the long run. Amy's four step process on change management: Acceptance - Accept what has happened to you. Empowerment - Come up with a new story that is more empowering.  Learn the Lessons - Find the lessons from what has happened. Explore - Take the opportunity to explore the other endings you can write, think of the new opportunities that are available. Individuals and organizations can take advantage of this four step process. When in doubt, go back to this process to help empower yourself within your struggle with change. There is always a story that has been running your life. You have to find out what that story is and why you believe it to be true. Work smarter and work within your strengths and not your weaknesses. If you are a manager, consider hiring people to do things that you cannot do, but ensure to let them do it. When working with any high level client, it is important to ensure everyone has a role, and trust them to do just that. As a leader, you need to model work-life balance for your employees and hold them to it as well.  Links and Resources Amy Branger - Website Perfect Avocado - Website Coupon code for virtual retreats: Planners (one day in-person retreat - $50 off), Planners1 (virtual superpowers retreat) Book Club for Planners on Purpose Thank you for Listening Thank you for listening to this episode.

S2E16 - Perfectionism: Digging Deeper
In this episode, we will be digging deeper into the concept of perfectionism. If you struggle with being perfect all the time, or have suffered from being held under the microscope of perfect, then this episode is for you.  Episode Highlights "It is the belief that when we do things perfectly, and look perfect we can minimize and avoid the pain of blame, judgement, and shame.  Perfectionism is a 20 ton shield that we lug around thinking it will protect us, when in fact it's the thing that prevents us from being seen." - Brené Brown, Daring Greatly Perfectionism is about perception, and there is no way that you can control perception no matter how much energy you put into it. Know the difference between Daring Leadership vs Armored Leadership. Have conversations about perfectionism with your teams and clients. Teams that are willing to have a conversation about perfectionism will move very far in the effort to combat it Practice mindfulness everyday to diminish the hold that perfection has on you. Practice characteristics like trust, innovation, creativity, accountability.

S2E15 - Dropping Perfectionism in Pursuit of Progress
Do you struggle with being perfect? So much so that you failed to make progress? Perfectionism can be very destructive if we let it, so this episode is just what you need to get it in check. Tips to Manage Your Perfectionism Planning the perfect experience includes allowing for imperfections along the way. Perfectionism is like a dirty word wrapped up in a beautiful package. Because no one is truly perfect. If you aren't careful, perfectionism can hurt you, it can destroy your events, and even harm your life and relationships. Although recognition is important, opt to plan events from a service mindset instead of choosing to gain specific praise. Each time you plan your events or projects, make sure to do it as yourself, and not in the image of what you may think others want you to be. Be careful to not allow fear from yourself or anyone else to be placed on you. It is okay to not be perfect, to gain experience, learn and grow.
