071 / Retaining Women (and Why They’re Fleeing) with Teresa Tanner
There are approximately 2 million fewer women in the labor force than before the pandemic. Why in a country that’s now facing a labor shortage, do so many women remain unemployed? Why did so many women leave the workforce in the first place? Here to help us navigate through this very complex topic is Teresa Tanner - Founder and CEO of Reserve Squad, a company that helps other companies retain women and preserve their pipeline of female talent. A long time advocate for women, Teresa has received numerous awards and accolades for her work. She speaks across the country and is featured in the likes of USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Today Show and many more. In the words of Teresa Tanner, “We need to stop allowing life’s temporary circumstances to permanently derail the careers of women.” This is an episode EVERYONE should listen to! And ladies, keep searching for opportunities and companies that value and appreciate your talent and are willing to prove it by the environments, compensation, and benefits they offer. Your job is to do your job, and do it well. A company’s job is to figure out how to keep talent from walking out the door. Let’s all do our jobs. This is Woman’s Work.

070 / Impostor Syndrome II with Dr. Valerie Young
We are doubling down, releasing two back to back episodes on the same topic, because it is THAT important! I’m joined by Dr. Valerie Young - internationally known expert on impostor syndrome and co-founder of The Impostor Syndrome Institute. From NASA to Google, Pfizer to MIT, Valerie has spoken to hundreds of organizations and universities. She has been cited in major publications like TIME, Newsweek and O Magazine, and is the author of “The Secret Thoughts Of Successful Women.” She shares that, in order to limit impostor syndrome in our careers and our lives, we have to practice reframing, and it starts with our thoughts, not our feelings. So, how do we steer away from impostor syndrome, and toward confidence and humble realism? We cover that, and more, in this episode! This is Woman’s Work.

069 / Imposter Syndrome with Dr. Tega Edwin
We’re digging into a topic that frankly I’ve avoided on our podcast for almost 2 years: Imposter Syndrome. I’ve seen far too many women struggle with this (including myself) and I’m kind of pissed off about it. Research shows that approximately 70% of the population experiences it, and while men are susceptible, it’s most prevalent among women, and even more among women of color. I’m joined by Dr. Tega Edwin - Award Winning Career Development Researcher, Educator, Speaker, and Owner of Her Career Doctor, where she helps women get clear about who they are so they can find and thrive in fulfilling careers. Her knowledge, insights, and advice around moving through impostor syndrome is some of the best I’ve heard… you’re going to want to listen to this one more than once!

Whether it be a product, service or career opportunity, we are all selling or being sold to on a daily basis. Sales is a part of our lives.

067 / Tell Your Damn Story with Sara Connell
Our stories have been swept aside by history, society, religion and culture for far too long, but in order to have an impact they MUST be heard, and in order to be heard they MUST be told. I am joined by Sara Connell - Founder of The Thought Leader Academy, where she helps coaches, writers and entrepreneurs become published authors, and in-demand speakers. A best selling author herself, Sara has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, The View, The Today Show, and featured in The New York Times, Forbes, NPR, and so many others. Sara shares with us how to make sure our stories get told, and how to take them to the next level. Your story is not meant to stay hidden. Whether you share it with the world or one person you love, it IS meant to be shared. How will you share it? Who will you tell it to? Who gets to be both a witness and a benefactor of YOUR truth? This, the telling of your story...This Is Woman’s Work.

066 / 4 Shifts To Finding Positivity In Media with Liesl Ulrich-Verderber
While there are many great purposes for social media, the news and various other forms of media, these can also negatively impact our energy, our mindset, and our confidence. I am joined by Liesl Ulrich-Verderber - CEO of Ever Widening Circles, a global positive media company with the goal of proving we still live in an amazing world by changing the negative dialogue and celebrating the people, organizations and discoveries that prove it. What impact would it have on your energy if you found a healthy way to be informed, to digest what’s going on in the world? Not to put your head in the sand, but to also look for the good, rather than allowing yourself to just be sucked into the bad. To have empathy, to remain curious, to be kind, and to remain confident, no matter what media you’re engaged in. You have the choice of who and what you let in. Choose with your values, your hopes, your goals and your sanity in mind. Choose wisely. This Is Woman’s Work.

065 / Gender Equity And Steps To Get There with Maureen Devine-Ahl
I have found my mission twin and am so thrilled for this conversation on all things gender equity! I am joined by Maureen Devine-Ahl - Founder and Principal at Candor & Company, Author of “How To Make The Matriarchy,” and fellow woman on a mission to achieve gender equity in her lifetime. She is committed to eliminating barriers and coaches both women and leaders as a women’s empowerment advocate. (Sound like someone you know??) I get that not everyone is as passionate as I am about gender equity, equal pay, getting women in leadership and seeing more women start businesses, write business books… but I truly believe it would be a better world if ALL humans were valued as equals (not as the same, but valued in our differences… equal in our rights and opportunities). Individually, we are all whole, worthy and valuable, but we become better together. Find your people, find your tribe, share those passions, support each others risks, aim high, dream big and tell all the naysayers to get the f*$k out of the way because you have important work to do. This Is Woman’s Work. To learn more about Maureen Devine-Ahl please visit:candorandcompany.com To learn more about what we are up to outside of this podcast, visit us at NicoleKalil.com

064 / Representation in Entertainment with Laura Hunter Drago
Who doesn’t love a good movie? Getting lost in a story or having a good cry, disconnecting from everyday life, just to be entertained. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much to recognize how our entertainment reinforces stereotypes and gender expectations. On this episode, I’m joined by Laura Hunter Drago - Award Winning Film Producer, Member of SAG AFTRA and Women In Media, and Assistant Editor in Chief of Ms. In The Biz. Laura co-founded New Girl Pictures, a production company that’s committed to getting women into positions both in front of and behind the camera. Representation does matter and we need women in key roles that will share our stories honestly and with care. I for one am excited to see women with complex, full and imperfect lives. And for the love of God, more women who go to bed without a full set of makeup on...who does that?! It’s time we hear the real stories of real women, and I guarantee it will be plenty entertaining.

063 / Epigenetics with Jessica Mcilveen
On this episode, I’m joined by Jessica Mcilveen - Epigenetics Coach and Australia’s leading family relationship expert, to educate us on how our behaviors and environments can actually change and affect the way our genes work. We are all different, but even in your uniqueness you are exactly as you’re meant to be. You were born whole. You can fight against that, judge yourself, you can make yourself right or wrong, OR you always have the option to embrace yourself while also seeking to understand others. Your body is fascinating, you are literally a walking miracle, therefore you should take care of yourself and learn what you need to thrive. This Is Woman’s Work.

062 / Winemaking Under The Tuscan Sun (Literally) with Mary Shea
I’ve invited my guest to join me today for totally selfish reasons, because she might be one of the only people on the planet that I’d consider trading lives with. After getting her degree in journalism from NYU, Mary Shea landed in Napa CA, where she met her now husband, an Italian vintner. She has spent many years working at the top end of the wine business, while also curating her own custom travel design business. Mary shares with us what she loves about making wine in Tuscany (what’s not to love?!?), as well as the challenges and obstacles of her business. She also shares some helpful tips for great wine and travel! Chase. Your. Dreams. Be open to possibilities, explore, go new places, meet new people, experience differences, and what brings us all together. Find joy in the life you’re living, and take just one step closer to something that lights you up from the inside. This is Woman’s Work.

Elaine shares with us the biases and obstacles she faced early on in her career and the skills she developed to help her stand up for herself and achieve professional success, all while staying true to her authentic self. With June being pride month I wanted to take the occasion to clearly say this, I unhesitatingly and wholeheartedly support my lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer friends, their rights, their marriages, their pursuit of happiness and their breath...this is also true July thru May. “It is not our responsibility to only advocate for the issues that affect us directly.” - Elaine Montilla This is Woman’s Work.

060 / Caring For An Aging Parent with Rayna Neises
Providing care for an aging parent (or loved one) isn’t easy for a multitude of reasons… juggling your career and family, dealing with siblings, managing financial implications, handling the emotions of both those doing the caring, and those being cared for...just to name a few. I’m joined today by Rayna Neises - Author of “No Regrets - Hope For Your Caregiving Season”, a Certified Coach and Host of “A Season of Caring” Podcast. Rayna advocates both for those providing the care, and for the aging, so you and your parent can be seen, not forgotten. And cared for, not neglected. I firmly believe that caring for our elders is the work of sons AND daughters. Of humans in general who owe a debt of gratitude, of love, of care, to those who first provided all those things to us. Being there in the best way you can for a loved one that’s aging, or the end stages of life is the work of angels, of children, of those who’ve benefited from their parents showing up in the best way they could. Care, appreciation and respect, this is everyone’s work.

I’m joined today by Cait Scudder - Forbes Featured Business Coach, Host of the “Born To Rise” Podcast, and Internationally recognized Online Business Expert - who’s on a mission to empower 10 million driven, bold-hearted women to create profitable purpose driven businesses that can change the world. Now THAT is a mission I can get behind. If you have a dream that just won’t go away. If you’re considering an opportunity that excites the hell out of you. If you have it in your heart to start a business and the only thing that’s holding you back is fear, then Get. Into. Action. Yes it might be hard, yes it is scary, and yes you could fail...but you could also change EVERYTHING. “The woman that you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces and material things. Choose her over everything.”  Now that is Woman’s Work.

058 / Languishing & Re-entry with Lisa Kalmin
Are you feeling hopeful as things start to open up and excited to travel, hug people, and have full schedules? Or are you worried, hesitant to go back to your pre-covid way of living/working, and feeling overwhelmed? Wherever you land on the spectrum I promise there are lots of us with you. I wanted to dive into these conflicting thoughts and emotions, and asked my coach Lisa Kalmin to join me. As a Transformational Speaker, Trainer and Coach, and Author of “The Problem Is How You See The Problem”, Lisa shares with us how best to make yet another transition into what she calls “re-entry”. It is important that we feel our feelings, honor them and give them space...we’ve earned these feelings over the last year. But we aren’t meant to languish for too long. You have important work to do. So do what women have done since the beginning of time: honor your emotions, leverage and support your people and your community (and ask for support too!) and when the time is right, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back into action. This is Woman’s Work. To learn more about Lisa and her work you can visit her website at: www.lisakalmin.com To learn more about what we are up to outside of this podcast, visit us at NicoleKalil.com

057 / Creating Bucket List Moments
I know from the outside looking in it often seems like successful people get really lucky, or the results come easy, or they are able to create overnight accomplishment. Which leaves us mere mortals feeling like we’re behind, or spinning our wheels, or we just don’t have what it takes. I certainly still have a long way to go, but I wanted to share with you the behind the scenes work that went into the creation of my bucket list experience of having the incomparable Dr. Shefali on my podcast. What’s on YOUR bucket list? Identify it and put it out there Ask for what you want Don’t give up and don’t forget the follow through Keep moving in the face of fear and doubt.

056 / A Radical Awakening with Dr. Shefali
Oprah has endorsed her work as “revolutionary and life changing.”  She’s authored 3 New York Times best sellers. And in her new book “A Radical Awakening,” she shares her journey, in hopes that it will help women awaken to their authentic selves… so that we can all live free. It is my honor to welcome Dr. Shefali to the “This Is Woman’s Work” podcast. While many people know her for her message of conscious parenting and mindful living, in this episode she shares how we can embrace our femininity by unmasking the lies we’ve been told. I know it can feel like the voices of others and gender expectations and even your own head trash are all playing on a loop at maximum volume. But the track of your truth and inner knowing are playing too… even if it feels hard to hear sometimes. I promise it’s there and it will never stop playing. What do you have to say about what it means to be a woman, what it means to be you? Because that’s the only voice that really matters. “Turn your pain into power, embrace your truth and live free.” This is Woman’s Work.

055 / Thriving In A Male Dominated Industry with Rachel James
We’re continuing the conversation of thriving in traditionally male dominated industries... how to handle the challenges, how to use it to your advantage, how to stay true to yourself in the process, and what we can learn from our male counterparts. I’ve invited Rachel James as my guest, as she has had a TON of practice at being a woman in careers where people often expect men. From working as a mechanic, to bodybuilding and now in the finance industry, Rachel shares her experience and takeaways and how the power of doing this one thing, can get you exactly what you want. For those of you who are blazing new trails in industries that are historically overrun by men, hold onto those blow torches and keep applying the pressure. We need you, we see you, we support you and we celebrate you. In the amazing words of R.H. Sin “Some women fear the fire, some women simply become it.” This is Woman’s Work.

054 / Parenting (How to Not Raise a Serial Killer) with Liz Bayardelle
This episode is for the sleep deprived, yet highly motivated Mamas, who are attempting to get more done in their 24 hour days then is probably advisable. Liz Bayardelle, author of “Clean Your Plate!”, mom of 3, PhD (Dr. Mommy according to her toddler) and executive, shares the importance of using tools like intrinsic motivation to teach our kids to be productive and confident grownups, as opposed to just well behaved kids. We are showing our children (both our daughters and our sons) what it means to be a woman. We are their first example. I see this as an opportunity to show our children how we live imperfectly… how to love, fail, forgive, live through pain and challenges, set boundaries, let things get messy, trust your instincts, and feel loved, worthy and valuable during and even because of our imperfections. This is Woman’s Work. To learn more about what we are up to outside of this podcast, visit us at NicoleKalil.com

053 / YOUR Habits Define YOUR Success with Tricia Hamilton
I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m overexposed to being told I must do things like wake up by 5am, work out every single day, start out each day with a strategic morning routine, work the longest hours, grind it out, and be hyper disciplined at all times and at all costs in order to be successful. I know these things can and do create success for people, but this one size fits all approach makes me want to vomit. I’ve invited Tricia Hamilton - Leadership Coach with a degree in psychology, to join us on this episode. Tricia helps us to unravel some misconceptions and rethink how mindset and habits connect, how they don’t, and how we can reform them to serve us and our goals. Mindset, goals, commitment and habits do matter. They are difference makers in creating success.  However it is YOU that defines success and YOU are the decider of what you need to do to get there. Nobody has a lock on what it takes or even what success looks like for everyone. Go find and live your answer. This is Woman’s Work.

052 / Writing Your Book with Lainey Cameron
Who else is obsessed with books? Reading is my happy place and I love the smell of the pages (weird, I know). I am in awe of the writers of books, the creators of stories, the speakers of truth. But writing the amazing book isn’t the only challenging part, then you need to publish, distribute, and promote it. And then you get to hear everyone’s opinions, reactions and critiques about your work. I’ve invited Lainey Cameron - A past tech industry executive turned award winning author of “The Exit Strategy” (an Amazon #1 Best Seller), to join us today. Lainey talks about why she made the career change, and how she navigated both the good and the hard of writing her first book. For any aspiring writer (like me!) who’s had it on their bucket list to write a book but has a long list of excuses, let’s get into action. As the great Maya Angelou once said “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.” This is Woman’s Work.

051 / Connecting To Your Sexuality with Aylen Doucette
I don’t think there’s an area of women’s lives that is judged more than our sexuality. Society tells us how we should act, look and feel. Our bodies and what we are supposed to (or not supposed to) do with them is commented on endlessly. Yes ladies, in this episode we are talking about sex, but really, we are going to talk about SO much more. I’ve asked Aylen Doucette - Sex, Love and Relationship Coach, to join us. She supports both women and men to find more pleasure and purpose - and expand deeper into the possibilities of their sexual energy, desire and relationships. Ultimately, you are the only decider of what feels good for your body. In the amazing words of Rupi Kaur: “Live loud and proud like you deserve, and reject their bullshit definition of what a woman should look and behave like.” This is Woman’s Work.

050 / Giving & Getting Feedback
You’d be hard pressed to find a successful leader, influencer or business guru that would tell you that feedback isn’t important. How else would you know how to improve or grow? But we don’t get taught how to give or receive it, and I say this with love, but most of us are doing it badly on both ends. In this episode, I share what I’ve learned the hard way, about both giving and getting feedback. I’ve coached far too many people who have received feedback that was badly delivered, so I’ve seen the impact (and I may get a little feisty about it). It’s also a great opportunity for me to ask YOU for feedback!  Will you please: Go on Apple Podcasts and leave a review and/or rating Let me know which episode of TIWW is your favorite so far… and if you’re willing to share it on social media and tag me I’ll do a happy dance (which oddly involves some strange gyrating for me, so you have that to look forward to) My feedback for YOU is that you matter… you are enough, just as you are. You are here for a reason, so show up every day and do whatever your authentic version of “woman’s work” is for you. Because you are the decider. And that is Woman’s Work.

Are you looking or thinking about seeking a new opportunity? Would you like some help in formulating a strategy so you can hit the ground running? I’ve invited Catherine McLean - Tactical Career Coach and Owner of CM Career Coaching to give us a crash course on what you need, who you should be talking to, and how the COVID 19 pandemic has changed it all. I hope you are in or find a career that gives you the quality of life you deserve, while also tapping into your talents, unique ability and passion. But if you’re not there, take some of Catherine’s tips and go find that opportunity. Because doing what you love (although still work) is far better than doing what you don’t. So get after it ladies!

048 / How To Stay True To Yourself Professionally with Andrea Williams
Have you ever worked in a place and felt like they just don’t get you? Like your talents, contributions and potential is being overlooked? I know a lot of women who have felt this way most of their professional career. So how do we pave our own way? How do we play to our strengths, and create success in the face of being told that we should be different? I’m joined by Andrea Williams - Speaker, Wealth Management Advisor and Author, whom I greatly admire for her ability to do just that. When Andrea started her career she was different then the norm in just about every way, and she’s turned those differences into difference makers creating massive success for herself and blazing the trail for other women in her field. Our job is not to convince others of our value. If you want to grow your confidence or self worth, stop giving other people the calculator. Show up as the only person you can authentically be...YOU. If they don’t appreciate, notice, value or understand you, well you have a choice to make...blaze a new trail, or find a new place to work that does. This is Woman’s Work.

047 / Mindset, Resilience & Divorce with Susan Tripi
It’s easy to be grateful and optimistic when things are going great. But during times of transition, when facing the unknown, when life throws you a curveball...THOSE are the times it can be challenging to choose a positive mindset. And if it were easy, everyone would do it and we’d have nothing to talk about on this episode. I’m joined by Susan Tripi - Women’s Empowerment Coach, Blogger, Non-Profit Advisor and Advocate, to talk about positive mindset and gratitude in the midst of transition, hurt and stress. Her advice on how to support women going through divorce is some of the best I’ve ever heard! I say to anyone who’s standing in the unknown, in pain or in transition...we see you, and we honor you. I lovingly challenge you to put one foot in front of the other, ask for the support you need, and hold on with every bit of strength you have to the knowing that tomorrow is coming. The sun will rise, and there is every reason for hope. Even if you can’t see it yet. In spite of all of your fears and worries, there is another side and you WILL get there. This is Woman’s Work.

You’ve probably heard the saying “Do what you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” Well, I call bullshit. You can have a passion, you do have purpose, and sometimes you find or create a job where they intersect...and that can be awesome! But it’s still work. In this episode, I welcome Stacey Gardin -  Author, Model, Photographer and Business Owner. Listen in to hear us chat about the downsides of making a job out of your passion, and the upsides if your job and passion don’t collide. Ultimately, your work matters because YOU matter.

I am SUPER passionate about women chasing their dreams and living their passion and purpose. One of the ways I’ve seen women do this (and experienced it myself!) is by starting their own business. In this episode, I welcome my friend and badass business owner Claire Myers Vitale -  Founder and Principal Consultant of Claire Myers Consulting. Claire talks to us about the challenges and triumphs she faced early on in her business, and shares some great tips on how to grow and scale your business. What would it look and feel like to be the decider of your income, how and where you spend your time, your career path, who you get to work with, and the people you get to impact?  Being a business owner requires hard work, but if you’re already working hard for someone else, you might as well do it for yourself!

044 / The 5 Anchors To Optimal Health with Jenn Zerling
For far too long I believed my body existed for the benefit, pleasure, intentions and use of others. And in that belief, I ended up abusing myself. Learning to love my body for what it is for ME, is a journey I’m still on, and one I wish I would have started earlier. I know I’m not alone. In this episode, I welcome guest Jenn Zerling - Founder of JZ Fitness, Certified Obesity Specialist, Author, Orange Theory Coach, and she also holds a master’s degree in kinesiology. Jenn shares the framework of what we need to know to live our best (most healthy) life! Are you grateful for all of the amazing things your body does, and can do? “Woman, you are more than eye candy and male intentions. You are a temple, a home. A sacred dwelling, and you should carry yourself like that.” - Unknown This is Woman’s Work. To learn more about what we are up to outside of this podcast, visit us at NicoleKalil.com

043 / Negotiating with Christine McKay
I’m excited to welcome guest Christine McKay - Founder and CEO of Venn Negotiation, Global Negotiation Strategist, International Speaker and Author, to help us develop this important skill, and empower the negotiator in all of us. Christine defines negotiation as a conversation about a relationship, and shares the difference between negotiating and haggling. These are extremely helpful distinctions… and we are negotiating on a regular basis, so we might as well be great at it. Asking for what you want, standing in your power (in your confidence!), standing in that belief that you deserve it, negotiating for a win/win… All of this is Woman’s Work.

042 / Disrupting The Status Quo with Penny Phillips
Are you a disruptor? Are you someone who doesn’t allow themselves to be constrained by working within the realm of what’s already been done? My guest today is doing just that. In this episode, I welcome Penny Phillips - Founder and CEO of Thrivos Consulting, who is taking on an industry that is very old and very set in their ways. Penny shares with us her experience early on in her career and the decisions she made that helped her to step out of what's traditionally accepted, and solve problems in a totally new way. Who do you want to be? What do you want to be known for? Go be that person. Go chase those dreams. YOU get to decide. Being the author of your own story...that is the truest definition of Woman’s Work. To learn more about what we are up to outside of this podcast, visit us at NicoleKalil.com

041 / Failure
In this episode I talk about failure. My failure. I open up about my current, fear and doubt inducing, very real, and not entirely sure things will work out, failure. I share the honest, raw and completely vulnerable side of experiencing failure in the hopes that it will make us all (myself included!) feel less alone. It is in this spirit that I release this episode because everything inside me is screaming “ABORT!” But I also know that our failures change nothing about our purpose. Dreaming big, risking big, failing big and overcoming even bigger ...well that is most certainly woman's work. So, here goes!

How connected are you, to you, at this point in your life? As we end a challenging year and welcome a new one (yes, please!), there is no better time to get clear and reconnect with our strengths, and appreciate our own value. In this episode, we dig deeper into the 5 steps of creating or updating our “Things I Know To Be True About Me” list, so that we can connect back to who we are and what we can count on. Step into the new year confidently, not because you’re confident with what the future holds, but because you’re confident in yourself. I wish you joy and love and infinite possibilities in 2021. But more than anything, I wish you confidence. To learn more about what we are up to outside of this podcast, visit us at NicoleKalil.com

Being grateful and practicing gratitude wasn’t something that came naturally to me in my younger years. I consider myself a realist (which is just a nicer word for pessimist) so I had to really work on changing my perspective in this area. In this episode I talk about what I’m grateful for, and share how I choose gratitude, even when things aren’t going my way. Because being grateful when everything is going well is super easy. Practicing gratitude when things are challenging, that is the gift that I want to share with you today. There really is so much to be grateful for, if you choose to look for it.

This year has basically raised it’s middle finger at all of us who are control freaks, planners, recovering perfectionists and doers. If anyone is still on track or sticking exactly to the plan they created for 2020...I would fall off my chair. This episode is about how to flex, pivot and adjust, when your plan goes out the window. I’m going to share what Jay and I have done and are doing, not because I think it’s inspirational, but because it’s REAL. I know this feels like a very difficult time to plan. But like so many things, doing it when it’s difficult is probably more important and impactful than doing it when it’s easy. Sometimes life knocks you off course because there’s an even better plan for you.

Time is the commodity we just seem to never have enough of, and once time has been spent, you can’t get it back. So how do we manage our time better? In this episode I share 5 of the biggest game changes (for me) as it relates to time, in hopes they’re game changers for you too. We all have the same 60 minutes, the same 24 hours a day, the same 7 days per week.  What will you choose to do with your time? You are the decider. Time doesn’t own you, because it doesn’t own your choices. It’s time to develop the skill of CHOICE management.

In this episode, I welcome guest Kristin Burke - Goal Achievement Coach and Host of the Elite Achievement Podcast, to give us tips and strategies that she uses with her coaching clients to get them from goals to results!

032 / There’s No Right Time To Start A Business with Melissa Lorenzo-Hervé
In this episode, I welcome guest Melissa Lorenzo-Hervé - Full-Time Attorney Editor, CEO/Co-Founder/Creative Director of Pirouette, wife and mother of 2. Melissa shares with us some great insight into managing a very busy life, as well as how one goes about starting a new business with limited time. It may feel like other people have more capacity, more talent or more luck than you. It’s easy to compare ourselves to others and feel behind. But like Melissa, like myself (regular people like you!) we are so much more capable than we give ourselves credit for.  This has nothing to do with perfection, there’s no perfect way to start a business, there’s no perfect way to do any of this. We as women are so many things to so many people. But who are you, for YOU? There’s purpose inside you. There are dreams and passions, for you, and I believe it’s time to honor them. Because I can’t think of anything more important to redefining Woman’s Work, than the notion that we show up as our authentic selves, with all our gifts, with all of our strengths, so we can take the world to its feet.

You don’t need to track the stock market or understand the differences of all the various retirement accounts, or even be great with money to have a plan. That’s where a great advisor can come in. All you need are goals, dreams and to know what’s important to you, so that you can make the best choices with the money you have. It’s time for women to feel empowered by their finances!

The idea of going into a room with all new people and having to make small talk... just the very idea of it makes this introvert super uncomfortable. (wine please!) In this episode, I welcome guest Julie Brown - Networking Coach, Business Development Strategist, Speaker, Author, Podcaster, to share with us how we can ALL be better at networking and relationship building. Julie shares the importance of connecting with people in a 360 degree fashion. And how by using her “list yourself” approach, you will transform your networking!

Beliefs create behavior and behavior creates results. So, you are either in control of your beliefs and behavior about money, or it is controlling you. In this episode, we dig deep on our beliefs about money and what it may reveal about us (are you getting fidgety yet?). We all have a relationship with money, and like most relationships, it can be purposeful, healthy, and empowering, OR it can be limiting, discouraging, and stressful. Listen in as I share tips on shifting your perspective and making your money work for you, not the other way around. It’s time for us to get confident about money, and it starts right here!

As women we often struggle with prioritizing our own health, so our needs can get put on the back burner. Jennifer talks about how you can work out effectively in less time (because who has 2 hours to get to the gym?!), and how you may need to eat more (the 1,200 calorie diet doesn’t cut it). You only get one body, this body. What if you loved it, cared for it, honored it like a sacred temple, like a home? What would THAT look like for you?

So by taking ownership of that narrative and being more strategic, you can be in the driver’s seat with your branding. If you don’t brand yourself...who will? It’s important that we all own our messaging and that we share our authentic, imperfect and worthy selves. Stand in who you are and what you have to offer and give to others.

I love talking with women who are breaking stereotypes and finding a name for themselves in traditionally male dominated careers. My guest today is doing just that. In this episode I welcome Megan Taylor - International DJ who performs at events all across the world. Megan shares the key steps she took in the early days of her career that helped make her a trailblazer in her field. By redefining the role and what it would look like for her, setting boundaries and truly embracing both masculine and feminine characteristics, she has created a career that she loves. When masculine leadership is balanced with feminine, when environments are created where both genders thrive, when people can bring their whole authentic selves to work, everybody wins. Men have been leading imperfectly for centuries, we don’t need to be perfect or have it all figured out to lead, but we must lead, just as we are.

In this episode, I share my feelings of shame, my belief that we must act, and my commitment to listen and learn. I believe the burden to eradicate racism shouldn’t be passed from those responsible to those affected. It requires all people to stand up and speak up for the lives of Black people.

In full transparency, I struggled to release this episode, as it was recorded prior to the death of George Floyd. I don’t want this to feel like “business as usual.” But with these recent tragedies I thought this could be a helpful and timely tool as we must all be willing to have difficult conversations, myself included. In this episode, I welcome guest Lynne Franklin - Author, Coach and Expert on Persuasive Communication. Lynne shares with us the biggest mistakes we make when having difficult conversations and her 6 step process to communicating more effectively. It is imperative that we put aside biases, curb our assumptions and be open and willing to shift our perspectives. Oftentimes in communicating, we tend to think about what we want to say or the message we want to get across, and rarely do we put ourselves in the other person's shoes. We can all benefit from strategy and tactics in how to have these conversations, and although this podcast was recorded several weeks ago, I can’t think of a more appropriate topic to help guide us through some conversations that are long overdue. I stand with the Black community at this time, most especially the mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, and lovers.  This is Woman’s Work… because when women rise, everyone rises.

We all experience tough days and setbacks, but we don’t all recover at the same pace. What makes some people recover faster, with tenacity and more confidence? They have a plan and it propels them back into action. In this episode, I share my Recovery Plan - what it is, why I needed one in my life, and I walk you step by step on how you can create your very own. We will all experience rough patches, rejections, and heartbreaks. In fact, the bigger and braver we choose to live our life, the more we will face these challenges.  If we agree those things are coming, then we need to have a plan.

She walks us through how to know if what we may be feeling is a normal reaction to the current crisis, or when we may need to seek help. And there is no shame in asking for help. In fact, it’s the incredibly brave thing to do. Life in general has ups and downs that we all struggle with from time to time, but adding in the stress and uncertainty of COVID makes it EXTRA challenging. We are treading through uncharted territory and juggling more than humanly possible. By giving ourselves permission to refill the tank, charge our battery and take the time we need, we come out the other side better and stronger.

In this episode, I welcome my special guest Alicia Romano - Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, to share her perspective on the importance of nourishing our bodies both on and off the plate. Alicia helps guide us BACK to the basics of understanding what our bodies really need to function at our best. And guess what? Traditional dieting doesn’t play a role in any of this. So many of us have unhealthy relationships with food, and for a lot of us, our food fears have kicked into high gear during this time. My consumption of cheese and wine has hit an all-time high...HELLO emotional eating! But I love how Alicia says “That’s ok” and to give grace and kindness to ourselves, and how cravings aren’t such a bad thing after all. Big bad craving monster...take that! What if we shifted our focus and took on this concept of choosing our food based on how it’ll make us feel, as opposed to how it’ll make us look? For me, this is a much healthier (and somewhat freeing!) way to live. I’m excited to share Alicia’s perspective and am committed to putting it into practice myself. I hope you’ll join me!

Now is a great time to reflect on our friendships both past and present. To give thanks to those who at one time supported us, and to reach out to those in our lives today.

Katie identifies key behaviors and signs to a possible self diagnosis, an important first step to healing, and shares some valuable resources. We are wired for connection, we are wired for love. How can we redirect the love we crave from others back into ourselves, so that we can build healthy relationships? (Hint hint...it doesn’t start with the other person) We. Are. Good. Enough.

008 / The Problem Is How You See The Problem With Lisa Kalmin
Why do some people view the world with positivity and opportunity, and some with pessimism and skepticism? In this episode, Nicole welcomes guest Lisa Kalmin - Transformational Trainer, Speaker and Author, to share with us how when we choose a responsible approach in our lives, we can create an uplifting, inspiring and transformational space for ourselves. By the time we are 8 - 10 years old, our particular worldview is set. We carry that perspective throughout our life and it influences what opportunities are available to us. While we cannot change the past, through conscious presence and allowing ourselves full freedom to experience the present moment, we can change how we relate to our past and open up the door to growth and expansion.

007 / Confidence Part 2 - Getting Back Into Action
Why do some people recover from a setback quicker than others? In this episode, Nicole addresses some questions from Confidence Part 1. She also walks us step by step through her Recovery Plan, a tool she uses on those tough days, to help propel her back into action quickly and with confidence. Challenging days are inevitable, we all have them. But how we respond and what we do next (or don’t) is the valuable lesson to be learned. It is the key difference between highly successful people and everybody else. It starts with a plan. Having a plan in place can help motivate, inspire and remind us what’s most important. Our mistakes don’t define us unless we let them. YOU are the decider. This is Woman’s Work. Learn more about what we are up to outside of this podcast at NicoleKalil.com

005 / 6 Steps For Fact-Checking Your Feelings With Julie Gordon
It’s ok to have your feelings, but your feelings shouldn't have you. In this episode, Nicole welcomes her first guest Julie Gordon, who breaks down her 6 step system for fact-checking your feelings. Often times our reactions get amplified by our past, and how we react isn’t always circumstantial to what’s in front of us. Julie walks us through the importance of identifying those feelings, and gives examples and strategies on how to auto correct our emotional course if necessary. As women, it is assumed we are emotional beings. Whether you express your feelings in more of an internal or external way, we ALL have them, and by implementing a fact-check system we can only improve our communication with others, and our understanding of ourselves.

004 / Calling All My Single Ladies!
In this episode, Nicole asks ALL women to raise the bar, and shares what she wishes she could go back and tell her single self. Do you feel the pressure from society to settle down, find the right person and get married because it’s that next “normal” step? Ladies, marriage is not a requirement and it does not prove your worth. It is so important in all of our relationships that we do the work, that we know who we are, who we aren’t, and that we show up as our authentic self. If we spend our energy being the very best version of us, we can and will create the exceptional relationships we deserve.
