I have been out of the country for some much needed re-charging, so Brennen had been holding down the Goal Magic Fort - many thanks and props to Brennen for his help and partnership! Every time I take vacation it becomes a way for me to make space to reflect on my life path and purpose. On this last trip, I came to see that I really want to make a difference in this world - not only by helping people get unstuck but by creating a career infused with meaning so I have been reaching out to my network to get projects where I can dig my heels into my own intention. I think so many of us have that feeling that our life’s purpose is bigger than the career we may currently be in, which is what happened to Cate Luzio who founded Luminary, a collaboration and co-working space specially designed to support women. Cate went from being in the world of big banking to going all in and self-funding Luminary, which was her brain child and has become her passion and has very much defined her next chapter.

This 15,000 square foot meeting space in New York City includes a rooftop deck and two floors of open workspace, conference rooms, a fitness studio, beauty bar, locker room, lactation room, and much more. Luminary is the ultimate career advocate offering members unparalleled programming and experiences. A longtime advocate for empowering women and girls, Cate serves on the National Board for Girls Inc. Cate has over twenty years of leadership experience in financial services. Previously, she was the Executive Vice President and Global Head of Multinational Corporate Banking for HSBC managing roughly $2 billion in revenue and teams in 55 countries. Cate also served as a Managing Director and Head of Multinational Corporate Banking at J.P. Morgan. She has received numerous recognitions including being named to the Most Powerful Women in Banking List by American Banker multiple times as well as a two-time recipient of the Financial Times and Heroes Global Diversity Champion.

If you find yourself repeating bad behaviors or patterns, then listen up because the truth is that you can change all that if you want to. My own personal experience with life coaching started in my 20’s. Throughout those years I found myself being very successful in my corporate life but many of the people I worked with and many of the men I dated turned out to be not great people and treated me badly. Do you want to know why? Because I subconsciously let them and it was a repeating pattern for me. It wasn’t until I realized it was a pattern, and decided that I deserved better and wanted to end that pattern that I changed the course of my own life. I got myself a kickass life coach and everything changed from there.

When Brennen and I started this podcast, we knew the topic of getting unstuck would resonate but we didn’t realize how many people would have such powerful and interesting stories that they were willing to share with us like the one from Jennifer Iannolo, whom I interviewed on our show today. She went from being in the world of luxurious food and wine and starting the FIRST food podcast to learning she had a debilitating disease that forced her to switch gears and change careers...and boy did she change careers. Check out the episode to find out how she got unstuck in a major way! About Jennifer Iannolo: Jennifer Iannolo is a global speaker and empowerment catalyst. A lifelong entrepreneur, she is the founder and CEO of IMPERIA™, an innovation incubator focused on women creating social impact projects around the globe. IMPERIA brings together women from 195 countries to develop their leadership and provide a strong sense of community, with programming based on Jennifer’s methodology of Self-Directed Empowerment™, which illustrates how one can become one’s own renewable, sustainable source of power. The theory is highlighted in her recently-published empowerment manifesto, No One is Coming. Jennifer speaks on empowerment and entrepreneurship at venues from the United Nations to Harvard University, and corporate headquarters like Konica Minolta. She is also a featured speaker on women’s entrepreneurship for the U.S. State Department, which has sent her on tours throughout India and Nepal.

My guest today, Laura Gassner Otting, author of Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life talks to me about everything from screwing the Joneses, why “entrepreneur” is code for “bad employee,” anchor jobs and orbit jobs, doing your career your own way,  and so much more. Her book debuted as #2 in the Washington Post bestseller list right behind Michelle Obama. I LOVED this book so much that I highlighted, penciled, and dog eared the pages in prep for the interview with Laura. And special for our Goal Magic listeners, we are doing a giveaway where you can enter yourself for a free copy of Laura’s book through Instagram, so check us out there if you haven’t already! About Laura Gassner Otting: Through Limitless Possibility, Laura collaborates with change agents, entrepreneurs, investors, leaders and donors to push past the doubt and indecision that consign great ideas to limbo. She delivers strategic thinking, well-honed wisdom, and catalytic perspective informed by decades of navigating change across the start-up, nonprofit, political, and philanthropic landscapes. Laura’s 25-year resume is defined by her entrepreneurial edge. She served as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton’s White House, helping shape AmeriCorps; left a leadership role at respected nonprofit search firm to expand the startup ExecSearches.com; and founded and ran the Nonprofit Professionals Advisory Group, which partnered with the full gamut of mission driven nonprofit executives, from start-up dreamers to scaling social entrepreneurs to global philanthropists. She is the author of Mission-Driven, a book for those moving from profit to purpose, and the recent book Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life. Through her own commitment to give back, Laura has helped build a local Montessori school, co-founded a women’s philanthropic initiative, advised a start-up national women’s PAC, grew a citizen-leadership development program, and completed three charity-inspired marathons—projects emblematic of her passions and values. She’s turned on by the audacity of The Big Idea and that larger-than-life goal you just can’t seem to shake. She’s an instigator, a motivator, and a provocateur, and she’s never met a revolution she didn’t like.

I adore this episode so so much, not only because our guest talks about how you can use funnels to supercharge your business and gives you some awesome tips and tools to do that... but also because she used her own experience of going through a divorce to fuel her vision for her brand and her products. Her mission was to automate her business such that it didn’t rely on her. I call her the “OG of Passive Income” because she really nailed how to get your business firing on all cylinders while allowing you to sip margaritas in Mexico. And who doesn’t want that?? Way back in 2007 (after cutting her teeth in the magazine industry) Kate McKibbin started her first blog, Drop Dead Gorgeous (DDG) Daily from scratch. She called it her "shoe money project," because she started it so she could occasionally afford some of the amazing shoes she wrote about all day long in her day job. Kate always thought of it as a business rather than a blog though, and it worked as DDG became her full-time gig in under 12-months, and continued to grow to have over 500,000 readers a month, with multiple 6-figure revenue and 5 staff. Then she did it all again at KateMcKibbin.com (yes, formerly known as Secret Bloggers' Business), which Kate started in 2014 and since then she has been lucky enough to help over 3,000 bloggers, coaches and infopreneurs to create profitable business doing what they love.

It’s been a nutty few weeks for me because, in case you hadn’t heard, I exited my corporate job earlier this year. If you don’t know the story, you should enroll in our emails where you can get the latest and greatest stories and additional content from us delivered to your door (well, virtual door). I then started my own consulting business, not really knowing what to expect. But after I started telling people what I was up to, I have been flooded with inquiries and I’m overwhelmed with emotion and hope these days. I also have been getting a huge dose of inspiration from our own guests, which has been incredibly cathartic for me, including the guest we have today, of whom I’m a total fangirl... Anne Mahlum. About Anne Mahlum Anne M. Mahlum is a female entrepreneur who knows how to create and build with purpose… and she knows how to do it quickly.  She is currently the Founder, Owner and CEO of a fast-growing boutique fitness company she founded in DC in 2013 called [solidcore] In just under 5 years, Anne has grown her company to 36 locations (entirely corporately owned) with more than 100,000 clients, including Michelle Obama. [solidcore]  has studios in DC, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Florida, Indiana, New York, Texas, Atlanta, Minneapolis, North Dakota, Chicago and Michigan. In late 2017, Anne brought on Peterson Partners as a minority investor to help take the company to close to 100 locations in the next two years.  She has received notable media attention for her success as a woman entrepreneur and her business acumen, including features in The Washington Post and The Washington Business Journal. Prior to [solidcore], Anne was the CEO of Back on My Feet (BoMF), a non-profit organization she founded in Philadelphia in 2007 that uses the power of running to change the way those experiencing homelessness see themselves so they can make real change in their lives, which includes employment and independent housing. In addition to Philadelphia, the organization now has chapters in Baltimore, Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, Dallas,Indianapolis, Atlanta, New York City, Austin and Los Angeles. Anne led BoMF to become a $6.5M privately-funded organization with staff of 48, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of members. Anne's vision for Back on My Feet is simple, yet bold  - to help as many people as possible, in the most efficient way possible, redefine themselves so they can redefine their life and, just as important - change the perception of homelessness on a global scale. Anne’s work with Back on My Feet has been featured countless times in both local and national media.  In 2012, Anne hosted a documentary for MTV called The Break on youth homelessness and she was recently featured in a book, called 50 Everyday Heroes. Anne has been named ABC world News Person of the Week, a CNN Hero, New Yorker of the Week, a top 40 under 40 individual by both Philadelphia and Washington DC’s Business Journal. Anne is a motivational speaker and regularly speaks at corporate events, academic institutions and conferences on numerous topics including, leadership, being bold, finding your happiness, the business behind starting a nonprofit, and social change.

I have one of the most fun episodes I have recorded in awhile, not because the interview itself was a blast (which it very much was!) but because the process that I took to get this guest reminded me of how sometimes you have to trust your intuition and let things unfold. I actually found this next guest, Dr. Nicola Nice, through a friend that I have been collaborating with on another project. She and I are both pro-female and want to see smart women support other women. She mentioned Pomp and Whimsy to me and after doing some research decided to reach out to Nicola on LinkedIn, which lead to this inspiring interview. This interview is a reminder that someone else’s ignorance can be your opportunity, and Dr. Nice certainly embodies that in her story and her journey. About Dr. Nicola Nice: Founded by Dr. Nicola Nice, a trained sociologist, self-confessed cocktail obsessive, and advisor to some of world’s top spirits companies, Pomp & Whimsy is a cordial style gin inspired by the female culinary writers and home brewers of the Victorian era. In an industry where women are rarely given center stage, Nicola is bringing fancy, modernity, and even a touch of femininity, to this wonderful old world spirit. Pomp & Whimsy brings modern sensibilities to the tradition of gin making, by infusing classically distilled gin with a delightfully flavorful botanical liqueur. Connect with Dr. Nicola Nice: https://www.pompandwhimsy.com/ Instagram: @pompandwhimsy Here’s to getting unstuck, Cynthia Sponsor Love: This week our show is brought to you by Brennen’s “Morning Habits.” Brennen shares his tips for his morning routine that help him rock his day.

We’ve got a fantastic episode for you all this week, featuring Philly’s own Lauren Nolan-Sellers. Lauren was a school teacher but quickly found herself staring out her classroom window, feeling like she was missing out on the world. After having a life-altering event where Lauren almost died, she decided NOW was her time to follow her vision. She dug into her desire to do interior design and the rest has now become history. As Lauren says during our interview, “life presents you with opportunity and you have the chance to rise and meet it, or not.” About Lauren Nolan-Sellers Awarding-winning interior decorator, Lauren Nolan-Sellers exploded onto the scene in 2012 co-founding Trust the Vision Decor, a residential design firm based out of Greater Philadelphia, PA. She, along with her partner Wendy, have imparted their unique design sense and straight forward business systems to create a flawless experience serving clients up and down the east coast. Since the inception of Trust the Vision Decor, the pair has sky-rocketed to success with a client list that includes celebrities, media personalities, and professional athletes. Lauren has become one the premier designers in their region and amassed over 30,000 followers on Facebook while continuing to demonstrate exponential growth appearing in local, regional, and national media outlets including articles in Philadelphia Magazine, a segment on Fox's Good Day Philadelphia, and a profile in Curve, a national women's magazine. As an actively working interior design professional, Lauren continues to find success taking on new clients and large scale projects. In experiencing her immense growth, she searched for a way to "pay it forward" and help other designers/ decorators gain a massive head start in their own businesses. This search culminated in the formulation of Aspiring Designers, a comprehensive program for designers and decorators that teaches them to implement Lauren's world class business systems and strategies so they can catapult themselves to success. This all-encompassing program nick-named the "Design Business in a Box" pulls the curtain back and teaches you the exact systems Lauren uses so that you can live the life you want and create a sustainable, profitable design business. The mission is simple: To help designers and decorators grow & scale a design business that consistently generates 5-figures or more a month without sacrificing your time and freedom even if you've got no idea where to begin. Lauren and her wife Wendy share two children, ages 6 and 9 months.  They reside in Bucks County but are in the process of remodeling and creating their dream home in South Jersey.
