How do you hold it together when it seems the world is coming apart?

Today, we’re talking pandemic life, entrepreneur life, mom life, and just well life, with a guest who has a lot to say about how to hold space for yourself when you need it.

Welcome to the podcast. I’m Julie Holton here with Audrea Fink and Reischea Canidate-Kapasouris  We are your Think Tank of Three.

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.

This is part two of a two-part series with Dr. Dorian Hunter. Welcome back to part two of episode #39.

We’ve had seven months now to get used to the new normal between the pandemic, life in quarantine, the mask debate, civil unrest, the kids at home, working remotely or trying to work remotely or not working remotely. The economy is shifting. The election is coming up and the news is constantly telling us it is the worst of times.

What the hell is normal, and how do we cope with a life that is so far from normal, let alone thrive?

With the shift to working remotely, the insanity of 2020 in general, and the stress levels of everyone around me I’ve noticed conversations getting a little crunchy lately.

I’ve had to do a lot of pausing, deep breathing, and counting to ten in my conversations. I find I’m regularly checking myself and my reactions against the things others say in discussion with me.

Are they being jerks? Do we just disagree? Do they have any awareness of how they’re being perceived?

In today’s professional setting especially, it is so important to check yourself (before you wreck yourself) before you react.

Here’s how you can do that.

Stepping into the unknown is scary, especially if that means uprooting our lives to try something new.

If you’re feeling like it’s time to make a major move or you’re feeling restless, and aren’t quite sure where it will lead, then this episode is for you.

A special guest shares how to go from Corporate to Calling.

I don’t know about you, but I am spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME working from home.

I’m doing a terrible job of creating space between my home office and my home life.

I find that when I acknowledge I’m not taking care of myself, then I catch myself in problematic behaviors more frequently and have a better chance of correcting them.

I’m sharing some tactics that can help create distance from work, when you’re stuck working from home. I hope the Think Tank helps keep me accountable!

I was just helping a few people rewrite and beef up their LinkedIn pages this week… and thought… maybe yours may need a little reworking. When was the last time you updated your profile? Or posted an article to attract more eyeballs? Added a link to recent work of yours?

With so much information out there… we’re on overload.

Newsfeeds. Overposting. White noise. Buzz words. It can be difficult to stand out. As you grow your personal brand and market yourself, one key part (and often a forgotten step) is developing a bio that reflects your worth.

When it comes to women supporting and empowering other women, today’s guest has it down to a science.

She offers young women a path to financial freedom and today she’s going to tell us how.

The beginning of the year, in fact, the entire first quarter is my favorite time of year. We’re making plans, building out vision and focusing on how we’ll execute on the strategy.

I find this time of year to be invigorating but also overwhelming. The beginning months of the fiscal year means the possibilities are endless. The sky is the limit and I’m always tempted to try and make it bigger this year than last year.

And by February, I’m swimming in the busyness of all of that. Why?

Because no matter what, if you’re not hyper focused on a couple of big initiatives, you’ll get swept away by all the other busy work.
Despite “shiny distraction” syndrome, I know that the best plan is to focus at the beginning of the year. I have a couple of tips to reign myself back in.
