Let’s face it, depending on your situation, there may be more low moments right now than moments of joy, as we cope with COVID-19.

We’re right there with you!

So we went live on Facebook to share a special twist on the Expert Connexions series airing on mConnexions’ Facebook page.

By day, they are hard-working professionals; experts in their fields of public policy work and advertising creative. By night, they know how to block out fear by creating fun ways to connect their virtual communities!

In this virtual chat, Julie Holton and Audrea Fink of the Think Tank of Three Podcast talk with Seth Barnhill & Terry Streetman about some creative ways to get through this tough time.

You never know how you’ll respond to a crisis until you’re in one. You can prepare. You can take classes. You can even run drills. But it’s never the same as the real thing.

Congratulations, Think Tank tribe. You now know how you’ll respond to a global crisis!

And though we are writing this intro with a bit of sarcasm and a hint of snark… we are also completely serious about giving yourself credit for however you are responding.

How many people have become overnight homeschooling parents?

Work from home wonder women?

Zoom and video conferencing gurus?

Seriously. Even if you feel like you’re failing (which, we can confidently say, you are not!), you deserve credit. We are all trying to navigate our way through something that has never been experienced before. There’s no guidebook for anyone to follow.

It’s with this in mind that our Julie Holton and her team at mConnexions launched a special live Q&A series called Expert Connexions, to help sort through the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. ICYMI: our Audrea Fink joined her live on Facebook to talk about how life has changed, personally and professionally.

Take a deep breath. Give yourself a moment to reset. Now is the time for all of us to support each other and try to make the best of an unexpected situation.

There’s no doubt, we are living in uncertain times. With news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) constantly filling everyone’s newsfeed, people are unsure and nervous about what may happen next. It seems every hour there’s an update from leaders across the globe, mandating social distancing, canceling large sporting events, and making travel recommendations. It’s hard not to think about how this could impact you and your loved ones, and the rest of the world– and how it may continue to impact us all.

Did you grow up knowing exactly what you wanted to be? 

Were you clear how to get to where you wanted to go? 

Did you ever worry that if you didn’t do it just right, you just couldn’t do it? 

Today we are talking about career paths and the meandering roads to success.

Is an office dress code about professionalism or subversive sexism?

This is a real question I’m asking. In fact, this entire post will be questions.

This topic comes up here and there for me and I’ve debated writing about it before. I get started writing and then I end up with more questions. I decide that dress codes are inherently sexist and then I change my mind.

I’m sharing this post now because I’d love to hear your thoughts.

How’s that New Year’s resolution going?

Is that the sound of crickets I hear? Smirking? A resentful sigh?

Shrug it off. Let it go. It’s time to move on.

Seriously! Give yourself permission to let go of that resolution that you know is never going to happen — so that you can actually make a strategic plan to achieve your goals. And, let’s be clear: that resolution isn’t going to happen because of the half-hearted way most of us throw around the idea of resolutions.

In life, we face many changes. There could be job and career changes. And there can also be personal changes.

Sometimes deciding to step back or say “no” to commitments so you can fully concentrate on something else is hard.

One of our podcast hosts, Kathryn, just had a child — and found herself learning how to manage her professional life differently. It’s difficult to do, but we all, at times, need to learn how to reevaluate our personal and professional lives and reprioritize.

In this podcast episode, we share big changes for Think Tank of Three in the new year, and talk about balancing work after the birth of a child.

“Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime’s work, but it’s worth the effort.” –Mr. Rogers

The new year has just arrived. And as we begin to peer into what 2020 will bring us, we may also be considering what changes we want to make in our lives. Goals for fitness, vacation plans, career shifts, and all those pesky little resolutions we are so excited about in January but that quickly fade away in February.

A strong network gives us strength and support, and not just in business, but in life. We build our tribe to help us get through the ups and downs.

So what happens when the people we need the most aren’t there? Because let’s face it, no one can lift you up or let you down quite like best friends and family.

Joining us in this episode of Think Tank of Three is a global leader and fellow podcaster, Cameo King, to talk about how to build relationships and what to do when you get burned.
