140 / Succeed At Work & Life with Sohee Jun

This Is Woman's Work with Nicole KalilMay 31, 2023

140 / Succeed At Work & Life with Sohee Jun

140 / Succeed At Work & Life with Sohee Jun

I value the intention behind Work/Life Balance, which is that work isn’t supposed to consume our entire lives. But the “balance” part is confusing for many, and it always hits me funny that it implies that we leave our lives when we go to work. As someone who loves their career, I’d say my work is very much a part of my LIFE. 

I’ve invited our guest, Dr. Sohee Jun, to join me to talk about how to succeed, as women, at LIFE, which of course, includes our work. As a top leadership coach, keynote speaker, leadership development expert and Amazon best-selling author, Dr.Jun works with emerging leaders and executives to unleash their untapped power. She worked over 20 years in the corporate world and is here today to talk about how we can build trust with and for ourselves so we create the Work/Life we truly want.

Maybe it’s less about balance and more about CHOICE. Knowing there’s power in our NO, value in our YES, and impact in our “not nows” or “not yets”. Maybe you already know the answer of how to succeed at work and in your life… you just need to be brave enough to listen.

All I know for certain is, this is the life you get to live and it's my greatest desire that you live it with intention.

139 / Well-Rested with Jolene Hart

139 / Well-Rested with Jolene Hart

Today we’re going to talk about the ONE thing, the one piece of advice, that I might be able to

universally get behind (you know how I hate one-size-fits all solutions). 

You’re probably thinking we’re going to talk about confidence. Not a bad guess, because I do believe we could ALL benefit from more of it, but I don’t think anyone can give a one size fits all solution to it, including me.

Our topic today is being WELL-RESTED. Every Day.

Jolene Hart is a health coach certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and founder of the

pioneering beauty coaching practice Beauty Is Wellness. She is a former magazine beauty editor and the bestselling author of six wellness books, including Eat Pretty, Ignite Your Light, and her most recently released Well-Rested Every Day. At the heart of Jolene’s work is her desire to empower people with the ability to shape their lifelong health with simple tools and habits, from stress resilience and hormones to diet, digestion, and personal care products, to help her clients look and feel their best from the inside.

In the words of Jolene, “rest is an intuitive, brave, and even radical act for women—one that adds value and depth to our lives.” It’s time to get some rest, my friends.

138 / Conflict & Tension with Hesha Abrams

138 / Conflict & Tension with Hesha Abrams

How can we BOTH resolve conflict AND defuse tension? That’s the million dollar question we’re

addressing on this episode.

And since I don’t have the million dollar answer, I’m joined by Hesha Abrams,

internationally acclaimed master attorney mediator, who has the unique talent of being able to manage big egos and strong personalities, and a keen ability to create synergy amongst the most diverse personality types, driving them toward agreement. 

Holy shit, now THAT’s a superpower.

Hesha has resolved thousands of cases, both large (we’re talking billions in settlements) and small, in every conceivable area, during her career, including mediating the fight over the secret recipe for Pepsi. She developed Holding the Calm, an insightful, practical, and easy to use tool kit, forged in the trenches of resolving human conflict, that identifies the secrets to know how to approach situations to prevent explosions, disarm conflicts, settle cases, and reduce drama. And she’s going to share some of those secrets.

Here’s what I know… when a pink spotted elephant walks in the room, you need to notice it. If it starts breathing down your neck, you need to do something about it. Because if you don’t, it’s going to sit on you and it’s MUCH harder to resolve conflict when you can’t breathe.

Not letting pink spotted elephants knock the wind out of you? Well that’s just woman’s work.

137 / Ampliship (Mean Girls Part 2) with Caroline Adams Miller

If you’re tuning into this episode of This Is Woman’s Work, I’m guessing it’s EITHER because you listened to last week and CAN’T WAIT to hear the rest of this amazing conversation, or you happened to stumble upon our show. If that’s the case, I’d like to encourage you to go back to last week's episode, because this is Part 2 of a two-part episode on the patterns, approaches, and ways that women ARE NOT supporting women.

And let me tell you, this conversation goes down as one of my all time favorites in the 3.5 years I’ve been hosting this show. Caroline Adams Miller brings a scientific, research-backed, and data led approach to the important topics we’re covering.

The time has come for ampliship - let’s SHARE the stories of women doing amazing things. Collaborate with other women to promote and recognize each other. GO PUBLIC with your support. Make sure there are witnesses as you promote them, reference their work, and celebrate their successes.

Become a MASTER of supporting other women. Let’s make ampliship both the word and the action of the year. That is WOMAN’S work.

136 / Mean Girls with Caroline Adams Miller

136 / Mean Girls with Caroline Adams Miller

I often challenge men to be open, curious, to truly LISTEN, to not be so defensive… and now it’s our turn. Friends, buckle up, because we’re going full throttle on the bullshit that WOMEN do.

The second I met Caroline Adams Miller, I just KNEW she needed to be our guest for this conversation. Caroline is a well-respected expert, whose scientific approach to change fosters lasting success in organizations and individuals. She has a Masters of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University. The author of eight books, including Getting Grit, Creating Your Best Life, and My Name is Caroline, Caroline’s work has been featured worldwide and she’s here today to help me, not just to have the discussion, but to provide that scientific, research-backed data so we’re not just talking “in theory” about the things that aren’t working for us, but providing concrete evidence of it.

Are you just a grown up Mean Girl? Are you going silent on the women in your life? What might you be doing that’s comfortable and convenient for you, but isn’t in support of other women? 

It’s time for us to be open and curious. It’s time for us to check ourselves.

And, because this conversation is so good and so necessary, we’ve made it a two-part episode. Meet us here next week for Part 2 of this conversation.

134 / Woman’s Work In Shifting Seasons with Elizabeth Presta

134 / Woman’s Work In Shifting Seasons with Elizabeth Presta

What season are you in? And do you embrace your changing seasons, recognize them for their unique offerings, and celebrate and appreciate their differences and their beauty? Or do you resist them, like winter in New England? Do you feel annoyed, or want to quickly move past it, or run away if you can?

We’re here today to talk about Woman’s Work In Shifting Seasons. And I can’t think of a better person to have that conversation with than Elizabeth Presta, licensed birth doula who has traveled extensively to over 31 countries, immersing herself and learning cultural norms along the way. Liz is passionate about women’s healthcare and has a hugely popular podcast Morning Chava.

No matter what season you’re in, this too shall pass. The hard, yes, but also the good. Summer is just a season too, so make sure you don’t let it pass by without recognizing, appreciating, and enjoying it!

Like nature, and the seasons, YOU and your life are fucking MAGICAL.

Live it. Be true to YOU and the season you’re in… I can’t think of anything that defines woman’s work better than that.

You can follow Elizabeth on her IG @esandoz

133 / Making Friends As An Adult with Danielle McCombs

133 / Making Friends As An Adult with Danielle McCombs

You might be wondering why we’re doing an episode on how to make new friends because it sounds like a topic for a younger audience, right? When we’re REALLY young, making friends just sort of happens. But we grow and evolve, and sometimes our friends don’t grow and evolve in the same direction at the same time… and we discover that some relationships that used to fuel us, now drain us.

On today’s episode of TIWW we’re going to talk about making friends. The truths, the challenges, and some strategies to help us. 

I’ve asked Danielle McCombs to join me. Danielle is a Co-Active Training Institute Certified coach with her own Life Coaching practice, which she founded after a 20 year career in commercial real estate. She hosts the podcast “The Opposite of Small Talk,” with her friend Kristy Olinger where they explore topics about personal and professional development. She had reached out to me and suggested this topic and everything in my being screamed YES, we need to talk about this!

Ok friends, it’s time to go make some new friends! And make sure you love on the ones you already have who have seen you through many, or even just a few, seasons in your life.

Because I believe there’s no better thing to be, no greater success, no better achievement than being and having a great friend.

132 / 4 Steps To Setting Boundaries with Amy Worthy

132 / 4 Steps To Setting Boundaries with Amy Worthy

Lets face it, we can ALL still get better at creating and communicating BOUNDARIES.

I mean, I train on this topic on occasion, I covered it briefly in my book, and I STILL find myself, on the regular, in situations where I didn’t hold to a boundary or didn’t communicate it in a way I feel good about, or in some cases, didn’t communicate my boundary at all… which leaves me feeling frustrated, resentful, disappointed, and exhausted.

I’ve asked Amy Worthy, High Performance Business Coach and Psychotherapist with 20 years of experience working with mindset, high performance and habit building, to join us today to cover this very important topic that we’ve covered before (Episode 72 if you’re looking for more on boundaries). 

If you say no in a kind, responsible, or professional way, and someone gets upset, that doesn’t mean you should have said yes. You are not responsible for other people’s reactions, you can only be responsible for YOUR choices.

And if you say yes, even when you meant maybe or I’d rather not, then you need to own the resentment and frustration you feel and use it to fuel your next no, or not yet, or yes but with these expectations.

Yes and no are powerful words with extreme clarity. We should probably be using them with more power and more clarity.

131 / Maximize Your Success By Managing Your Ego with Christie Garcia

131 / Maximize Your Success By Managing Your Ego with Christie Garcia

Today we’re going to talk about our ego (and for the record, we all have an ego), and how to manage our own as we work to become better humans.

I’m joined by Christie Garcia, a Leadership Coach, Speaker, Contributor to Forbes Coaches Council, and Founder of Mindful Choice Leadership Academy. One of Christie’s super-powers is helping her clients identify and manage their Ego in real time. Her clients build authentic confidence (which is my favorite kind) so they can communicate more effectively and maximize their impact within their professional teams and personal relationships.

Even though we use the word ego often to describe the dark side, the reality is there IS a healthy side. Our opportunity lies in understanding and managing it.

And at the end of the day, we all have ownership over our beliefs, actions, words, and decisions. I believe that there are lots of influences and contributing factors, but at the end of the day YOU get to be responsible.

In short, It’s ok to have an ego, your ego just shouldn’t have YOU.

130 / Can’t Get No Satisfaction with Dr. Julie Landry

130 / Can’t Get No Satisfaction with Dr. Julie Landry

We live in a time of abundance. We have more available to us today than ever before, we are more connected, there’s a plethora of options at our finger tips, AND YET, so many of us are unsatisfied. 

And that paradox is hurting all of us, regardless of gender, but I think for women there’s a nuanced way it’s wreaking havoc on our lives… the more options we have, the more we feel we’re supposed to DO. And it’s fucking exhausting.

So let’s dive in and discuss, because I KNOW this is impacting me, and I imagine I’m not alone.

I’ve invited Dr. Julie Landry, board-certified clinical psychologist, former Army officer, and founder of a thriving concierge mental health practice to join us. Julie works with high-level executives, professional athletes, health care professionals, and is here to share tips and strategies that work.

Here’s a good place to start: Build and maintain the relationships that serve you, and then serve and share your gifts with others. Choose and practice gratitude. SLOW DOWN and be where your feet are. Do more of the things that light you up from the inside, and less of the things that don’t.

129 / 4 Truths of Radiant Change with Kristen Lisanti

129 / 4 Truths of Radiant Change with Kristen Lisanti

Most people resist change, are afraid of it, or at least feel really uncomfortable with it.

But that doesn’t change the fact that CHANGE IS COMING. You can count on it.

It is for that very reason that I’ve invited Kristen Lisanti to join me today to talk about navigating change… and not just any old change, but what she calls RADIANT change. Kristen coaches leaders and their teams to drive transformation at scale, guiding them through her proven methodology to spark and sustain meaningful change. Kristen is trained and certified by the NeuroLeadership Institute, the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, the Leadership Circle and the International Coaching Federation. In short, she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to change.

A loving reminder of the first truth: it’s INEVITABLE. No amount of avoiding, resisting, running, or fighting will change that. And progress, success, healthier relationships, and our deepest desires often live on the other side of change.

127 / Trauma with Jessi Beyer

This is a tough one because I’m so fully aware of how IMPORTANT, how

complex, and how necessary this topic is. And I truly hope I treat it with the care and respect it is due.

On this episode of TIWW we’re going to talk about Mental Health and Trauma. If this topic feels triggering or not supportive to you right now, then hit pause and join us next week.

I’ve asked Jessi Beyer, an international speaker and the #1 best-selling author of How To Heal:

A Practical Guide To Nine Integrative Therapies That Can Help Release Trauma, to join me. She has been featured in over 160 media outlets, holds a Masters in Critical Psychology and Human Services and, outside of her professional life, she is a K9 search and rescue handler with her dog, Phoebe.

If you’ve experienced trauma, ask for support. Find the help you need…

nobody can do the work for you, but there are people who can stand WITH you.

If you witness trauma, don’t turn away from it. Call it out if, and when, you can. Be OUTRAGED.

If someone honors you by sharing about their trauma, listen, hold space, BELIEVE those that trust you enough to tell you about it.

125 / How To Be An Ally with Aisha Suleiman

125 / How To Be An Ally with Aisha Suleiman

On this episode of This Is Woman’s Work we’re going to talk about how to be an

ally. And since about 90% of our listeners are women, I’m talking mostly about WOMEN being allies women. More specifically, how we can be allies to Black women. Because, in my opinion, there isn’t a group of women who have the right to demand it more. And I’m so tired of constantly letting them down.

I’ve asked Aisha Suleiman to join me for this necessary conversation, as she’s an award-winning diversity and inclusion leader, entrepreneur, and keynote speaker. Her company, The Inclusive Culture, helps organizations build a sense of community by empowering their employee resource groups and encouraging allyship in the workplace. Recognized as an EMpower 100 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders (2020), Aisha has worked with renowned global brands like Amazon and IPG Mediabrands. In 2022, Aisha launched True White Allies – a ground-breaking film project that shares the stories of historical White anti-racists from as early as the 1700s to inspire increased allyship and action.

I have a strong belief that we can’t make any real, lasting progress as women, if ALL women aren’t considered, included, and advocated for.

Let’s be in action, big and small, public and private, proactively and reactively… in action, together.

Being an ally… now THAT is woman’s work.

117 / Steps To Getting Better Pay And A Promotion with Stacy Mayer

On today’s episode we are going to talk about the steps you can take to better titles and better pay, all while bringing your whole self to the leadership table.

You DO deserve it, you HAVE earned it, you ARE ready. And the answer is going to be no if you don’t ask, anyway. So you might as well ask.

My guest today is Stacy Mayer - bestselling Author of “Promotions Made Easy,” Executive Coach and Promotion Strategist, and creator of Executive Ahead of Time - a group coaching program that helps women get promoted to the executive suite on their terms. Stacy shares with us some practical tips to ensure that you’re positioning yourself for promotion.

Stop waiting to feel ready. Ready isn’t a destination, it’s a choice. Of course there are things that you can do to prepare and to strategize, but at the end of the day we all must choose confidence on the road to competence. So go in there and ask! I’ll be here rooting for you.

115 / Unresolved Conflict with Julie Holunga

My guest on this episode talks about something so messy and so uncomfortable, but also so important as it’s something we’ve all experienced; unresolved conflict. Julie Holunga is a Leadership Trainer, Executive Coach and contributing Author to the leadership book for women, On The Rise. Julie walks us through the biggest challenges we face when it comes to conflict, and she gives beneficial tips to help you work through it.

There are people in your life you can and should have conflict with, knowing it’ll get resolved because they are in it with you. They are equally invested in resolving it together. Those are the people you fight with and fight for.

And there are some people where conflict may be better left unresolved, leaving you to move forward and create your own closure.

Knowing the difference? Well that is woman’s work.

111 / How To Transition Without Starting Over with Blake Shofield

Our work environments aren’t going to change unless WE change. You don’t need to walk in today and quit, but you can start taking action towards creating, finding or building the career opportunity you want.

Here to help us do that is Blake Shofield - Founder of The Bridge To Fulfillment, a former corporate executive whose job it was to turn around 8 and 9 figure businesses. Despite her success, Blake constantly found herself feeling unsettled, chasing the next job or promotion to make it better, so she could finally do fulfilling work while having the time to be more present with family, and lead a less stressful life. (I know I’m not the only one who can relate to that) After two cross country moves, increasing frustration with more of the same, Blake forged a new path to build her own business where she now helps other women do the same.

Not every woman is in a position to demand or create their dream job, or to walk away, but those of us who are, damn well better. For ourselves, for the people we love, and for the women that aren’t yet able to. That IS woman’s work.

109 / Why Every Entrepreneur Should Write A Book With Anna David

109 / Why Every Entrepreneur Should Write A Book With Anna David

Books are my happy place and for as long as I can remember it’s been on my bucket list to write one. And now I’ve officially checked that off my list with Validation Is For Parking.

One thing I’ve come to realize is that a book isn’t just a book. It’s so much more, and if you’re building a business you might want to consider writing one. Chief among the many reasons to do it is that your story matters. And, that we need more books (especially in business) to be authored by women.

Here to help us think bigger about that is Anna David - New York Times bestseller of eight books, founder of Legacy Launchpad Publishing and three time Tedx speaker. Anna’s first novel, Party Girl, is in development as a feature film and she hosts the hit podcast, Entrepreneur Publishing Academy.

And while I’d encourage everyone with the desire to write their book to do it, I will share that it’s hard. So when the women around us do brave and bold things it gives us the opportunity to support and celebrate it. We must. Because doing brave and bold things? Well, that is woman’s work.

“If you’re an entrepreneur who hasn’t published a book, you’re allowing your competitors to take your clients” - Anna David

Join Nicole in celebrating HER and her choice to take a risk and get into action. There’s literally nothing we love more than witnessing a woman grow her confidence.

106 / What Men And Women Need To Know About Working Together with Joanne Lipman

106 / What Men And Women Need To Know About Working Together with Joanne Lipman

I firmly believe that gender expectations damage everyone, and that in order for ALL of us to achieve equity, it’s going to require not just women to fight for what’s right, but everyone.

But men often share that they feel like they’re walking on eggshells and are afraid to say and do the wrong things. While I don’t feel sorry for them, I do have empathy. And I’m not talking about the a-holes here, but the men who want to be part of the solution.

Which is why I invited Joanne Lipman on the show. Joanne is the author of the national bestseller, That’s What She Said: What Men and Women Need to Know About Working Together, former editor-in-chief at USA Today and Conde Nast, and referral from Adam Grant (who I’m professionally obsessed with). She drops some serious (and well researched) knowledge!

We’ll all get where we want to go faster, if we work together. Good men can’t stay silent and a little extra empathy across the board wouldn’t hurt anyone. “Woman’s Work” will be what WE make it, so let's work together to make it something amazing.

P.S. This is a great listen for anyone of any gender, especially those who are leading others.

To follow Joanne you can visit her website at or on IG @joannelipman. And you can buy her book That’s What She Said on Amazon.

102 / Remote Work Is The Future with Lona Alia

In an ever changing world with increasing access to better technology, resources and people than in any other time in history, it’s amazing to me how many organizations and leaders refuse to test out new ways of allowing their teams to work.

Despite the evidence that flexible work environments, schedules and trusting your people is profitable, organizations are still trying to force their team back to pre-covid work environments.

On today’s episode I welcome Lona Alia - she is an expert on building revenue channels and fully remote teams. Head of Revenue at Safety Wing (where they have 100% retention… seriously), Advisor to Startups and EU for Innovation, Lona is a remote work advocate and Digital Nomad who has worked and traveled to over 80 countries and has learned 7 languages.  She is even building the first country on the internet.

I see far too many of us staying in unhealthy, unsupportive work environments out of some sense of displaced loyalty, or fear of change, or unwillingness to take strategic risks. Women make up a large and necessary part of the workforce. We have power. It’s time we use it for ourselves and everyone else that’s being underserved by their company. That is woman’s work.

097 / Divorce Rehab with Wendy Sterling

Many of us have been socialized to believe that our worth and our value is tied up in whether or not we get married. In our quest to get our ‘happily ever afters’, and in our attempt to live up to societal expectations, we often ignore the red flags, and because of this far too many women (and men) find themselves in unfulfilling marriages.

So what do you do? How do you know when to keep fighting for the marriage or when to start fighting for the opportunity for something better? And if you make the decision that divorce is the best choice, how do you get through this extremely tough experience?

I’ve asked Wendy Sterling to be my guest and to share both from her personal experience, and as the creator of the Divorce R.E.H.A.B program, who’s helped thousands of women reclaim their identity, heal and transform their lives. She’s also the host of The Divorced Woman's Guide Podcast and is passionate about helping women get unstuck so that they can design the life they choose.

It will always be true that you are the decider of what’s right for you. But in all choices, I hope that you prioritize the love for yourself as just as important as the love you feel for another. Even if it means going it alone at times, or for as long as it takes to find somebody worthy of holding your hand and being on the journey with you. That is Woman’s Work.

Here's Wendy’s downloadable guide around How To Manifest The Life You Want from the abundance mindset.  You can follow Wendy on IG @divorcerehabwithwendy. You can learn more about her work at

096 / What’s Your Million Dollar Idea? with Taylor and Casey Capuano

I am willing to bet that every one of you has an idea for a product, a service or a business…maybe even multiple ideas. The problem is so many of us talk ourselves out of our own million dollar idea not knowing where to start.

But not my guests today.

On today’s episode you are going to get to hear from two co-founders (who also happen to be twin sisters) who just launched their first product. And I’m willing to bet it is a million dollar idea. Taylor and Casey Capuano founded CAKES body, a company dedicated to creating solutions for women, while simultaneously supporting women’s health causes.

Their first product answers the daily dilemma that so many women face of what to do with the fricken pads that seem to have a mind of their own in sports bras while also combatting NFO (nipple freak out). CAKES launched in January of 2022 and are currently in the top 8% of Shopify stores, have an overwhelming amount of raving fans and 5 star reviews, including me. We will hear how these ladies navigated through the fears, doubts, challenges, obstacles and disappointments of launching their big idea.

What’s your big idea? How are you getting into action? Find yourself some encouragers, some supporters, some hype girls, some mentors, some truth tellers and some raving fans. Choose confidence again and again until it becomes contagious. That is Woman’s Work.

093 / The Audacity To Be Queen with Gina DeVee

I’ll be honest that I generally find the idea of women calling themselves “queen” a little cheezy. But I love it when someone comes along and changes my mind!

On today’s show I’ve invited the incomparable Gina DeVee to be my guest. Gina is the founder of Divine Living, a global lifestyle and empowerment brand for women, a speaker, transformational coach, host of the “Divine Living” podcast, and author of “The Audacity to be Queen.” Gina shares with us how to release all forms of self-doubt and self sabotage so that we can discover the best version of ourselves.

“In every woman lives a queen, who is confident, poised and clear on her calling. She is bold and unapologetic. Drawing from her spiritual connection and feminine nature, she accesses the power to manifest her desires and fulfill her purpose. The era of invisible women is over, your time to be queen has arrived. The days of dismissing ourselves and our desires end here, no longer must we pretend to be anything other than our brillant, capable and fabulous selves.”

And that definitely sounds like woman’s work to me.

As you heard in this episode, Gina has been a huge support and I've already experienced personally the value of her work.  Here's a little insider information I'd like to share with you... Gina is hosting an incredible program later in the month, but in the interim she is offering this FREE 3 day event this week (Wed-Fri), check it out HERE!

090 / Unmasking Modern Motherhood with Katherine Wintsch

If you are a self-doubting mom who would love nothing more than to feel confident as a parent, you are not alone, and this episode is for you.

Our guest on today’s episode of This Is Woman’s Work is Katherine Wintsch, founder and CEO of The Mom Complex, and author of Slay Like A Mother. Her research has been featured on The Today Show, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Working Mother magazine, to name a few. And she’s here today to share some of that ground breaking research from her popular book so that we can ALL slay like a mother.

“The dragon raging inside you has a name and it’s self doubt. You’re the only one who can see it so you’re the only who can slay it. You have two choices, either learn to slay this beast, or it will slowly and silently slay you. If you don’t rise up and take back your life, and your sanity, the constant battle and fighting will wear you down and wear you out. And you, your family and the world will miss out on the best of you. You can do this, let’s go slay some dragons.”

– Katherine Wintsch

087 / Do Less

Why are we so obsessed with doing it all? It seems like there’s not a problem that we don’t try to solve with some version of “do more”.

We are inundated with messages that hard work creates success and that we’re supposed to grind, and have grit, pay the price, be disciplined and get shit done.

I’m tired. Or maybe I’m just old and cranky. But either way I'm going to share in this episode of This Is Woman’s Work how both myself and the women I coach have achieved our greatest success by doing less.

Will people judge you if you go against the “do more” grain? Sure, but people will have opinions no matter what you do. They can have all the grind awards, the ‘first in, last out’ badges of honor, and every Overworked Woman of the Year trophy if they want them.

I’m going further by doing less. Clarity, purpose, courage, passion…that is woman’s work.

085 / Cycle Syncing with Stefanie Adler

I’m excited to share that we are doing something that we very rarely do on the podcast.

We are having a repeat guest!

Because we got so many questions about what Stefani Adler calls our feminine flow, I’ve invited her back to dig deeper, and share more insights and examples of cycle syncing and what it means to make lifestyle choices according to the phases of our cycle.

If you haven’t yet listened to episode 74, I’d encourage you to do that because we’re going to jump right in.

It’s time to reclaim and reconnect with our cycle. No more shame, embarrassment or disgust. Let’s awaken to the power that’s inherently ours. It isn’t anyone's job, but a woman’s, to decide what we believe about our own bodies. That can only be Woman’s Work.

081 / Glass Half-Broken with Colleen Ammerman

Has the glass ceiling been shattered? Well, with only 8% women CEOs in the Fortune 500, approximately 25% women holding the 5 most critical C-suite positions in the thousand largest corporations, and zero women presidents in our nation's 245 year old history…I’d say there’s cracks, but no shattering quite yet.

In today’s episode of “This Is Woman’s Work”, Colleen Ammerman - Director of the Harvard Business School Gender Initiative, a researcher with Life and Leadership After HBS, a study of the post MBA alumni that examines how race, gender and other factors shape their life and career experiences - talks about glass ceilings. She’s the co-author of Glass Half-Broken:Shattering the Barriers That Still Hold Women Back at Work, where the pervasive organizational obstacles and managerial actions that create gender imbalances are identified, and solutions and strategies are provided so companies can BECOME glass shattering organizations.

There is still much progress to be made and while we’re working on shattering all the glass, I invite you to build your confidence. Don’t let yourself be surrounded by people who diminish, devalue or drain your energy. Confidence may be the most important resource you have.

This Is Woman’s Work.
