We’ve all heard the phrase, do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. But we’ve all got to pay the piper at some point and so often, work we love is not aligned with our job.

But what if no matter where you worked, you worked from your strengths? What if you were able to cultivate work into something that not only got you paid but also sat firmly within your sweet spot?

In this new episode of the Think Tank of Three podcast, Allison Tivnon shares insights on cultivating a career, putting your best strengths forward, and taking chances that are well worth the risks.

It’s beginning to look a lot more hectic as we close out 2021. Another year of the new normal, where nothing is normal anymore. Another year where priorities have shifted and you had to make some hard decisions. Another year, where you looked at failure and success, and you wondered how are you going to balance it all? And hopefully, another year where you were able to make yourself a priority and offer up yourself some self-compassion.

If you struggle with how to do that, today’s guest can help. Laura Mack is here to help us understand what it means to put your own oxygen mask on first.

Why outsource, when you can just learn the trade yourself?  That’s what Roshelle Stovall Lee asked herself and then proceeded to do just that.  She took her God-given skills, molded them, practiced them and turned herself into the one stop shop that absolutely follows the adage “I can do anything”.  But she is quick to point out, this is HER story, you have to develop your own.  It’s episode #49 of Think Tank of Three podcast.

I’m going to admit up front, that this is a bit of a rant. The beautiful thing about having a platform is that you can use it to share what peeves you in the hope that it provides a lesson to others. Or if it doesn’t, maybe it’ll provide some comic relief.

No matter what you do for a living, you are in sales. Everyone is selling. Always.

You’re selling an idea, a product, a persona, a brand, yourself. And it’s incredibly important to, if not understand how to do it well, then at least don’t do it so poorly that you embarrass yourself.

For the people who give sales a bad rap, I would argue that most of them are lazy. Sales is about the relationship and being lazy in relationships will fail you professionally.

This last year has been heavy. A global pandemic, political division, racial tension.

And did we mention the pandemic?

Today, Think Tank of Three is hitting the reset button.

You don’t always get to do that in life, but when you have a podcast for women, by women, you get to practice what you preach. And there is nothing we preach more than turning inward when you need it.

No matter how you look at it, the lows, the highs, we’ve all faced changes and challenges. But we’re still here and we’re here together.

If you’ve been a part of the Think Tank of Three tribe for a while, you might have noticed the crickets around here. During the last few months, we have hit some roadblocks and had major changes come into our lives. Instead of trying to push on through and deliver sub-par or half-assed content, we took our own advice and took a break.

But we have regrouped, brainstormed, made some changes and updates to the site, and are now back and working to bring you more support and empowerment from successful women in our community.

We still have a bit more work to do before we are able to share our newest guests and updated posts so sit tight. I promise new content is coming and we couldn’t be more excited for it!

To keep you inspired until then, we wanted to share some of the content that we’ve been reviewing and relistening to as we build back up to Think Tanking again. In the spirit of putting on our own oxygen masks first, we pulled some of our most popular posts on Self-Care out of the vault for you.
