After traveling the country talking to thousands of women and hearing that phrase uttered repeatedly, Maxie McCoy, writer, speaker, and author of the book "You're Not Lost" realized that not only do so many young women not know where to begin to find direction in their lives, they're dealing with a massive self-confidence deficit.

The workplace is changing rapidly, and we can all feel it. Whether you're busting through glass ceilings in Corporate America or are one of the many entrepreneurial women who took her side hustle full-time, you've no doubt been faced with the decision of whether you try to fit in with the "Old Boy's Club" to get ahead, or ride the Millennial Pink wave and embrace titles like "She-E-O" and "Girl Boss".

I've kept a journal for the majority of my life. They're really more of a landing pad for my random thoughts and ideas and less of a diary, but regardless I almost always have one on me to catch any moments of inspiration that might arise. In today's solo episode, I'm pulling back the curtain (what's left of it anyway) and reading a few entries from the last couple of years. Some are half-baked morning thoughts, others are full-blown career and life manifestos, but they're all a window into how both my businesses and I have evolved over time.

As children most of us were asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" putting it in our heads that we have to choose one job and stick with it for all of adulthood. Jan McCarthy never bought into that idea. She's lived her life choosing one career path after another (and often more than one at a time) based on her insatiable curiosity and her desire to have a great time doing it. If you identify as a Multi-Passionate, you'll appreciate how Jan has identified and gone after new professional opportunities for herself time and time again, including becoming a paid artist after the age of 50.
Jan McCarthy is an Artist, Creative Developer, Podcast Host, Author, and Small Business Coach.
In art and business, Jan believes in blending the left and right brain to achieve the most comprehensive expression, and everything she creates from paintings, sketches, books, brushes, towers, workshops or events are inspired by real-life visuals.
She's constantly deciphering and incorporating the abstract part of life in her work with the intent to evoke emotion, bring together community, unleash the imagination, stir thoughtful reflection and give way to images of something meaningful, often hidden in between the layers of mixed media, life, and other materials.
Art and business go hand in hand so when Jan puts on workshops, classes, retreats, and events she often pairs the two together because she loves helping entrepreneurs, professionals, artists and other creatives explore their hidden talents and curiosity through meaningful and fun interactive artistic sessions.
Jan was born into an entrepreneurial creative family and grew up to marry an entrepreneur. They had two daughters who are now grown and are also entrepreneurs. This influences Jan's art as does her obsession with traveling and adventure, creating community, hanging out with family and friends in thoughtful and interesting conversation over great food and drink in a fabulous location. She's lucky to embrace a dual lifestyle, splitting her time between an urban loft in downtown Los Angeles and her ranch in Boulder, CO and those diverse and abstract lifestyles filter their way into her art.
We're all familiar with the "quit college and start a company with a ton of funding in your early 20s" entrepreneur story (thanks, Zuckerberg.) What we don't often hear is the more strategic, less sexy version that involves working for a ton of companies and trying out multiple roles throughout your 20s, collecting information and experience on someone else's dime and THEN going out on your own. Rachael King did exactly that for the first nine years of her career before launching two companies in two years. Find out how this former MTV Twitter Jockey contestant has made a career out of embracing her many professional curiosities.Read More

28: "Underwear, HR, & Keeping Employees Happy" with Ellen Sweeney, Head of People Operations at MeUndies
Until very recently, HR professionals weren't exactly seen as the cool kids in the office.

On this episode, Ellen Sweeney, Head of People at MeUndies, enlightens us on how she went from hospitality to HR, what the heck a Head of People does, and shares some of her secrets on how you can snag a job in an incredible company.Read More

The average job tenure for workers aged 25-34 is three years, which means in our 40+ years of working we'll have a lot of different career paths to explain on a resume and in a cover letter.

In this episode, I chat with Life and Career Coach, Carolyn Birsky who found herself in the same position early on in her career. After finally finding her calling in coaching, Carolyn now helps other women navigate their 20s and make that important decade feel less confusing.Read More
A Northern New Jersey native with a personality as big as her bright red hair, Julie Knapp grew up surrounded and enamored by the arts. After graduating from Syracuse University with a double major in Television, Radio & Film and Psychology, she spent the first phase of her career attempting to find her place in Hollywood, taking unpaid internships and low-paying gigs in Production and Reality TV show casting.
Four years of speed bumps, career detours, and a 3,000-mile cross-country move later, Julie took the leap from the world of Reality TV to pursue her passion for casting scripted TV, landing a role as a Casting Assistant on TBS’s “Cougar Town.” Throughout the last five years, she's worked on over a dozen shows and is now the Associate Casting Director on ABC’s “Designated Survivor.”

22: "Creating a Career & Lifestyle with Purpose" with Kate Gremillion, Founder & CEO of Mavenly + Co.
If you were to ask most people whether having a career filled with purpose and meaning was important to them, the majority would say, "absolutely." In reality, finding purpose in your career can feel like a pipe dream that sounds great, but is way harder to achieve than we'd all like it to be.
