Natisha Willis is a DEI practitioner and life and wellness coach. We met when we were chosen by Brown Ambition podcast host, Mandi Woodruff-Santos, for her inaugural career coaching cohort–the Mandi MoneyMakers. We’ve been meeting and chatting since earlier this year. And I was always in awe of Natisha’s story–one of those reasons: in 2018 Natisha made a move most of us only fantasize about–she left the U.S. for a simpler, more gratifying life in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Today she joins me to talk about living and working as an expat and how it’s improved her quality of life across the board–we’re talking mental, emotional and financial Wellness! She’s going to share her story, and we’ll discuss the cultural differences in work styles and priorities as we observe them in the DEI space. And later, we’ll hear commentary from two additional guests, my cousin Ashley Cottrell and my friend Ayoka Blandford who both made similar moves to Puerto Rico and Costa Rica, respectively. And I’ll have them all share some tips–for anyone who's considering making this kind of move, this kind of change  Follow and connect with today's guests on Instagram for a glimpse into their extraordinary lives abroad! You'll find Ashley Cottrell @ashley__amor, Ayoka Blandford @joyinhome, and Natisha Willis @coachtish and natishawillis.com.

Let’s hear her story after the break. Today I’m talking to Kimberly Smith, founder of the Marjani Beauty Company.

Going through divorce and separation, we can feel isolated and like there’s no one who can relate to what we’re going through. So in this episode I bring you four relatable examples to look to. We're talking change after divorce or separation. I’m having a panel conversation with a few friends–I’m calling them “The Confidantes!” Three women, and myself, who are all on the other side of divorce and separation, and very different outcomes and circumstances.  Living “together but separate” until you can afford to live apart, forgiving infidelity, being best friends after divorce, and explosive endings that lead to beautiful, new beginnings... These are real examples of change, ever after.

Gems on gems on gems in this mini episode! Jina Etienne from Etienne Consulting wasn’t available during the production of last week’s episode. We hopped on a quick call after the show; she shared her feedback on my Quick Launch Guide and the sections where I discuss building your network and being referred to an accountant,  and there were just too many nuggets not to share with my emcees! So while I’m on vacation, enjoy this jewel of a conversation! And I can't wait until her full episode where we can expand on some topics she mentions–the 10 questions startup clients always ask, and when and why to consider an LLC. You can contact Jina by email at jina@etienneconsulting.com, and by phone at 301-778-5510. As she says–be sure to mention my name and the podcast so you get a timely response! 😆 Let’s stay connected #emcees! ✉️ Submit questions for Emcee Q+A to marceia@marceiacork.com or DM me on IG @itsmarceiacork! 👉🏾Follow me on Instagram! 📺 Subscribe to my YouTube channel! 🎙 Be a guest on the show! ⬇️ Get my Quick Launch Guide for startups! 🎧 Subscribe to the podcast! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thoseeffincwords/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thoseeffincwords/support
In this episode, we get real about the analysis paralysis that keeps some of us from moving forward with our business idea. Each day we see hundreds of incredibly successful entrepreneurs and influencers across our feeds, but for some that level of success seems so out of reach. In this “quick-launch” discussion I simplify the road to entrepreneurship and we walk through my Quick-Launch Guide–a bare bones, 10-step guide to get a business idea from ideation to operation. In a future episode I’ll also bring in a panel of experts–accountants, insurance providers, web and graphic designers–to do a deeper dive into the quick-launch approach. Special thanks to my “commentators” today, who add flavor and commentary to the conversation!

What will be your entrepreneurship story? Dr. Vanessa Allen didn’t want to be an entrepreneur! But she had an encouraging husband who was a serial entrepreneur himself. He stayed in her ear about going into business for herself and practicing medicine the way she wanted. This is what can happen when you stop taking your skills and talents for granted, and listen to the people around you who see what you sometimes don’t see! Everyone doesn’t have a hype man. No encouraging spouses in their corner. No role models or successful examples of entrepreneurship within their networks. We all need one! And that’s precisely why I’ve decided to do this series of interviews–to stay inspired and hopefully inspire others. Listen to Dr. Vanessa Allen’s entrepreneurship story here and on YouTube.

In this episode you’ll quickly see how fewer words, main points and slides can reduce your anxiety and improve your confidence. Meet Kristen--a sensory scientist who regularly presents testing and research findings. I'm teaching Kristen the basics in organizing a speech across three topical areas. This episode jumps in on her 1:1 session, with Kristen's first attempt at my Box Talk technique --which she called "a dumpster fire!" Lol. Kristen wanted to organize her thoughts so she could improve her delivery, self-confidence and credibility. In under an hour, Box Talk and my stackable approach helped her narrow her ideas, work from fewer notes, and appear confident while presenting. Longterm, I would work with Kristen on organization, hedging techniques and controlling the conversation so won’t do or say too much! She already has an inviting personality and a great speaking voice. Narrowing her points so that she can trust what she already knows about the subject matter--versus overwhelming herself with data no one needs–will help her be more credible and confident. Kristen’s laughter throughout this session is proof that representing your brand on- and off-camera can be painless! This is how public speaking and interview skills can support your professional goals. Watch my Box Talk video on YouTube to see more examples of the technique in action, and you can read about both my Box Talk and ABC exercises here: https://www.marceiacork.com/0-to-60-confidence/ #brandstory #elevatorpitch #abcchallenge #BoxTalk #interviewing #entrepreneurship #publicspeaking Did you know there’s more than one way to enjoy Those Effin’ C-Words!

I sat down with candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates, District 23, Keenon James, for a candid discussion on long term unemployment, the looming #recession, and second-chance hiring for returning citizens--all very timely and relevant topics for my audience.
