The Princess Factor: How to Turn the Pea Under Your Career into a Pearl

Once upon a time there was a powerful woman leader. Over-all she had a charmed career.

You know may know her personally and what it feels like to be moving through life powerfully. You’ve had promotions, accolades, financial success and more. Congratulations! You have what I call the Princess Factor.

However, lately, just like the fairy tale princess, you may have noticed that the career bed you are lying in has some lumps that are keeping you up at night. Maybe you’ve landed in a financially secure job that is emotionally draining. Perhaps you lost out on a big project or promotion. Or you may be one of the many people who were right sized during the pandemic.

If this is you we invite you to join us in this podcast series that addresses the 5 key concepts you need in order to not only find the pea under your career, but to turn your pea into a pearl.

Take-a-way: Discover what you want now.

2. Enthusiasm: Energize Your Mind. May 12, 2021

3. Assets: Assess What Makes You Shine. June 16, 2021
What allows you to stand out from the crowd? If you don’t have a recognizable personal brand and a clear story that lets people know how you can make an impact for them, it is going to be difficult for the right people to recognize you as the answer to their problems.

4. Relationships: Reach Out Now.
Do you hate to network? If you do it’s possible that you have a misconception of what it takes to build a network that is filled with people who know, like and trust you and who will recommend you to the best job opportunities for you. Believe it or not, networking can be fun.

5. Leadership: Lead the Way
