Manvi says the to-do lists, timetables, and all those calendars and "team tools" don't work well for her. She simplifies it to this, "How urgent is it? When do you need it?" The answer ...

Jeanne asked her guest, Kaeli O'Connell, "Being part of a team is important, but what else is important to you?" Kaeli tells us in this episode, "Having the freedom or the support to try new things and try programs and kind of flex new muscles.  Being in a role where there's always something new and challenging is maybe more important than the team, although the team is super important to me."

Jeanne's guest, Meher Govadia was ready. She said it hit her, "Let's get back to work. Let's see what's out there." She was a little skeptical in the beginning. She admits, "After 10 years (not working and caring for her family) and to be brutally honest, I never kept up with the changes in the IT sector and all the new technology that came up. You can't. I mean, when you're so focused on your ch...

Being able to change locations and views gives Kelsey Duryea a breath of fresh air to engage and enjoy her sales calls. When Kelsey thinks about her best days they are actually the autopilot days where instincts run until the end of the day. Her biggest piece of advice is to embrace failure, otherwise, you stay stuck in known and past successes rather than challenging yourself to risk new successes by diving into the unknown.

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
