In this episode of Beyond the Business Suit, we are talking about personal branding for leaders and, more specifically, 6 elements of a strong online presence.

Before we jump into today's topic, I wanted to share an announcement with you:
In our last episode I talked about what WE can do to manage our lives better. And, if you remember, I talked about how the first step is to prioritize your activities and identify what is most important that you spend your time on at any given time. Well, I've been doing just that and in my evaluation of my “must dos” and “must dos by me,” I realized that this could be a perfect time to move to a seasonal model of Beyond the Business Suit. Since 2014 and now almost 110 episodes in, I have been publishing Beyond the Business Suit almost completely by myself and on a weekly to bi-weekly basis. And as my business is picking up and demands on my schedule are growing, I want to make sure that I can produce a show that's quality and spend the time necessary to make sure our content and interview guests are at the level that you deserve.
So, Beyond the Business Suit is going on summer break!
We will be back in September with some amazing episodes.

In this episode of Beyond the Business Suit, I'm talking to not only you, but also to myself and sharing some of the steps WE can take to manage our lives better.

Mentioned on this episode

  • The Three things (listen to episode for full details):
    1. Prioritize. The busier you get, the more responsibilities you have, the more you will have to identify what is most important to you.
    2. Delegate. Once you are able to prioritize what needs to be done and also what needs to be done by you, you can then delegate everything else that doesn't need to be done by you to other people.
    3. Take care of yourself. Like the airplane analogy goes, put your oxygen mask on first. You can't take care of anyone else if you don't take care of yourself first.
  • Tiffany Dufu‘s book, Drop the Ball
  • Farnoosh Torabi's So Money Podcast
  • The Call podcast with Erica Williams Simon episode with Bevy Smith

As you go through this process, I would love to hear some of the changes you've made in the comments!

In this episode of Beyond the Business Suit, I interviewed Dorianne St Fleur. Dorianne is a career coach, advisor and HR leader who teaches women professionals the skills they need to uncover a career that is purposeful, productive and profitable.

In this episode you will hear us discuss

  • Dorianne's experience transitioning from operations at a large bank to a career in HR
  • The importance of being self aware
  • What “personal magic” is and what women can do to use their “personal magic” at work
  • What to do if you find yourself laid off or in a career transition

 

Dorianne's Bio

Dorianne St Fleur is a career coach, advisor and HR leader who teaches women professionals the skills they need to uncover a career that is purposeful, productive and profitable.

Dorianne has advised hundreds of men and women at Fortune 500 companies such as Goldman Sachs and non-profit organizations such as, Dress for Success. Her work has been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post, Business Insider, Working Mother magazine, The Muse, Fast Company and Inc.

Dorianne has over a decade of experience in Corporate America and Human Resources.

Dorianne holds a B.A. in Psychology from Spelman College and has been trained in HR Management at New York University.

Dorianne lives in New York with her husband and two year old daughter, and when she’s not working or spending time with them, she’s most likely scouring the internet in search of the perfect mojito recipe to try at home.

Quotables

  • “What I've found is, if two, three, four, five people are saying the same thing, there has to be some level of truth.”

  • “Personal magic to me is that thing that makes you you.”

  • “Everyone has something that's specific to them that makes them unique. And when you can tap into that and you can use that and infuse that into every single thing you do, that whole process and experience to me is magical.”

 

The Final Five

 
1. If you could brunch with three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Oprah, Ramit Sethi (from www.Iwillteachyoutoberich.com) and Dave Chapelle
2. If I were to ask ten people who know you to describe you using three words what would they say? Funny, loyal, smart
3. What is something you've said or done at work that you wish you could get a “do over” for? When Dorianne got laid off, she didn't say anything in the meeting because she was in a state of shock. If she could have gone back, she would have owned that moment better. She also had an experience early in her career where a more experienced person offered to be her mentor and she did not take her up on it.  
4. What is the best advice you've ever received? Everything is temporary, so don't get so bogged down at any given moment.
5. What is your go to “power outfit” or something you put on to feel confident and powerful? A little black dress and heels

In this episode of Beyond the Business Suit I interviewed Courtney Sanders. Courtney is a rising star and self-proclaimed guinea pig for ambitious women. She started a blog called Think and Grow Chick back in 2009 while she was in college and that has evolved into a thriving business. This business even allowed her to leave her corporate job back in September of 2016. And, oh by the way, she's not even 30 years old!

 

In this episode you will hear us discuss

  • How Courtney started her blog in college that turned into a five figure a month business
  • How she was able to beat her salary in terms of  income from her business
  • How she managed building and growing her business while working full time
  • How losing her scholarship, meeting a life coach and Lisa Price all inspired her to become an entrepreneur
  • Ways Courtney strategically optimized her time while working full time:
    • Got up at 5 am every day
    • Rode public transportation to get to/from work so she could work while she was on her commute
    • Brought her laptop to work and worked at a coffee shop during lunch

 

 

Books Courtney Mentioned

 

Quotables

“Don't be afraid to try something, because even if it fails, usually there is some nugget of gold in it that will lead you to your next success.”

“Very early on I was trying to inspire people to get off their bums and do something with their lives.”

“If someone took everything away from me and I had to start from scratch, and I had the choice between perfecting a product or perfecting an audience, hands down I would perfect the audience first.”

“God willing, I have time, I have tomorrow and that's not an excuse not to work today, but I have things to be hopeful for and I can trust the process and allow things to take the time that they need to take in order to come to fruition.”

“You can't talk about women's empowerment without talking about financial empowerment as well.”

Courtney's Bio

Courtney Sanders is an entrepreneur, speaker, and rising authority on women’s empowerment. Through her training and development company, Think & Grow Chick, LLC, Courtney provides online & in-person education, mentorship, and community for millennial women. Courtney is particularly passionate about personal development, as she personally experienced the consequences of poor habits and a lack of discipline when she found herself failing school and in serious credit card debt by just her sophomore year in college. After educating herself on the “ins and outs” of personal development, money management, and entrepreneurship, Courtney climbed her way out of debt in a few short years and went on to successfully launch Think & Grow Chick.

Since then, Courtney has had the opportunity to speak to and develop training programs for a number of organizations, including The White House My Brother’s Keeper and Council on Women and Girls, Black MBAs, Credit Karma, and Levo League, among others. Courtney has also designed personal and entrepreneurial development curriculum for Urban League Young Professionals and Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

In 2015 she authored the book, Get What You Want: The Ultimate Guide to Figuring Out + Getting What You Want in Life which has since served as a catalyst for several related trainings and programs. Known for her gift of breaking down complex concepts in a fresh and relatable way, Courtney reaches over 75,000 women every month through her blog and social media platforms, where she frequently provides self-help, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy advice.

A Detroit, MI native, Courtney holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing and previously worked for the FDIC as a commissioned Bank Resolutions Specialist. She currently lives in Dallas, TX with her husband, Jomaine.

 

The Final Five

1. If she could brunch with three people (dead or alive), they would be: Madame CJ Walker, Mellody Hobson, Misty Copeland

2. If I were to ask 10 people who know Courtney to describe her using three adjectives, they would say: passionate, driven and silly

3. The best advice she's ever received: We often overestimate what we can get done in a day, but we underestimate what we can get done in a lifetime. 
4. The best book Courtney has read in the past year is: Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg
5. Courtney's go-to power outfit: A sheath dress with a print, some big, funky earrings, spunky heels, a bold lipstick  and making sure her fro is extra “frolicious” 🙂

Evelyn is the Chief Financial Officer for TDIndustries, a Dallas-based mechanical construction and facilities service company with an extensive background in finance leadership. I was fortunate to work at the same company as Evelyn about 10 years ago and always admired who she was personally and professionally and am so happy to have her on the show.

One common theme throughout this interview is how Evelyn lives her life with intention and excellence. We talked about why she decided to build a career in finance, how she was able to seamlessly continue excelling in her career after taking a two year sabbatical while taking care of her daughter, her advice on how to handle being the only one who looks like you and a lot more. I promise you, you'll want to take notes on this one!

 

In this episode you will hear us discuss

  • Why Evelyn decided to build a career in finance
  • How she was able to seamlessly continue excelling in her career after taking a two year sabbatical while taking care of her daughter
  • Her advice for busy working mothers on how to manage work and life
  • Her advice on how to handle being the only one who looks like you

 

Quotables

  • “I am very intentional about decisions.”
  • “You can do whatever you choose to do, if you choose to work at it.”
  • “Organization and delegation will save you from insanity.”
  • “The attitude that I put on when I want to feel powerful is the knowing that no one can be better at being me than me, so when I walk into a room, I wear that proudly.”

 

Evelyn's Bio

Evelyn Henry Miller is a highly-respected financial executive with extensive corporate experience in finance, planning and analysis, strategy development and execution, human resources and information technology, across diverse industries, including media and telecommunications, for global and domestic enterprises, with revenues over $2 billion. Miller currently serves as Chief Financial Officer for TDIndustries, a Dallas-based comprehensive mechanical construction and facilities service company that has been named to Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For® for the past 19 years.

Prior to this role, Miller served as Executive Vice President for such firms as Agencies of Change and The Dallas Morning News, where she was responsible for Finance, Information Technology and Administration. In this capacity, Miller was a key participant in determining the company’s business strategy, and as the company’s senior-most financial officer was also responsible for managing all aspects of the company’s financial and administrative direction.

Miller has held several other high-profile finance roles including, senior vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer of BancTec, Inc. where she was responsible for accounting, finance and legal functions for this global systems integration and services company. Also, from 1995 to 1999, she held key senior management roles at CellStar Corporation, the world’s leading global provider of innovative, value-enhancing logistics services to the wireless communications industry.

Miller has several honors to her credit including being recognized by the Dallas Business Journal in 2016 with a Women in Business award and in 2012 as the Outstanding CFO for a Midsize Public Company by D Magazine.

Miller is involved in the community and currently serves on the board of Dallas CASA and, as a founding director, is currently Chairwoman of the Young Women’s Preparatory Network, a non-profit that supports single-gender, college-preparatory, public education in Texas.

In addition, Miller serves on the corporate board of directors for DentaQuest, the second largest oral health company in the United States and the largest in the Medicaid space.

Miller earned her degree, with high honors, from the C.T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston. She also has an active CPA certification.

The Final Five:

  1. Some of Evelyn's “secret weapons of success”: Knowing her craft, the ability to surround herself with a great team and being resolute and compassionate when there are tough issues that have to be managed.
  2. Some of the things that she does to manage her family, personal life and career: She manages her time as the precious resource it is. She holds herself accountable by reviewing her calendar. Her calendar will tell her if she's prioritizing her time by what's most important in her life. Because of that, she's not shy about saying “no.” She is also unapologetic about her self-care. 
  3. The best advice she's ever received: Her mother always told her to live her life. Her mother was ahead of her time and taught Evelyn how to be present. Evelyn intensely compartmentalizes everything she does so that she can experience the moments as what they are. 
  4. Something in her career that she wishes she could get get a “do over” for: When she was leaving public accounting, she was recruited away by a former partner from the firm. When he asked her what compensation it would take for her to leave, after she answered and he quickly said “ok,” she realized her number was too low. That never happened again!
  5. Her go-to “power outfit”: She usually goes with a conservative, yet classy style with a touch of flair. What makes her feel most powerful is her attitude: the knowing that no one can be better at being her than her.

Are you a high achiever who has great people skills? Meaning, not only do you do great work but people really like you. If so, this episode is especially for you. I've found that one of the most important things that leaders need in order to realize their potential is to have self-awareness (I even talked about it in my “What I Know For Sure” episode). So in this episode of Beyond the Business Suit, I'm sharing three things you can do to gain self-awareness.

Are there other things you have done to gain self-awareness? Leave a comment and let me know!

Episode 101: Be Your Most Powerful Change Agent http://www.kaileicarr.com/episode-101-be-your-most-powerful-change-agent/ Sat, 04 Mar 2017 20:36:02 +0000 http://www.kaileicarr.com/?p=1861 http://www.kaileicarr.com/episode-101-be-your-most-powerful-change-agent/#respond http://www.kaileicarr.com/episode-101-be-your-most-powerful-change-agent/feed/ 0 Today's episode of Beyond the Business Suit was inspired by a quote that I recently heard from Tiffany Dufu on my friend, Elayne Fluker's podcast, Support is Sexy.

Today's episode of Beyond the Business Suit was inspired by a quote that I recently heard from Tiffany Dufu on my friend, Elayne Fluker's podcast, Support is Sexy. Tiffany wrote the new book, Drop the Ball and you may remember I recently interviewed Tiffany as well in episode 98 of Beyond the Business Suit. Anyway, in that episode of Support Is Sexy, Tiffany said,“You are the most powerful change agent in your own journey.” And that deeply resonated with me. So today I wanted to share some ways that you can be your most powerful change agent if you're feeling stuck or stagnant:

1) Realize this is just one moment in time. You may feel like you will be here forever, but know that you don't have to be.
2) Do things that inspire movement. Sometimes I think we feel stagnant because we haven't given our energy the opportunity to regain momentum. So do things like move your body, do some activities that bring you joy, surround yourself with some people who can give you a good laugh! Give yourself permission to do this.
3) Map out these three things: What are three of your core values? What are one to three goals you have that you feel like you're not moving toward fast enough? What are some of your strengths?
4) Envision what an ideal life would look like for you. Spend every day for at least the next two weeks envisioning that ideal life, whether it is every morning as soon as you wake up or every night before you go to bed. Really see yourself and feel how you will feel in that new life.
And I'd love to hear from you! I want to hear what massive change you manifest in your life by changing your mindset, getting your energy moving and setting your vision. Leave a comment below!
