#155 Karen Treiger on Researching and Writing a Family Memoir

Episode 155 features Karen Treiger, author of the widely praised book, My Soul is Filled with Joy: A Holocaust Story.Find Karen Online:Website: https://karentreiger.com/Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/stare-lipki-press/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/my_soul_is_filled_with_joy/Twitter: https://twitter.com/soul_filledYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzNBa_ERj3JlpC1MrUv41pgFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/authorkarentreigerMedium: https://karentreiger.com/media-kitAbout Karen:After 18 years of practicing law in Seattle, Karen Treiger felt an unmistakable call to explore the story of her in-laws, Sam and Esther Goldberg. Educated at Barnard College and New York University Law School --where she was editor-in-chief of NYU Law Review -- Treiger made the momentous decision to retire from her law practice and pull together the threads of a family story she had heard for many years.The result of her three-year inquiry is the widely praised book, My Soul is Filled with Joy: A Holocaust Story. In it, Treiger chronicles both Sam and Esther Goldberg's journey, including Sam’s escape from the death camp Treblinka, as well as her family’s experiences in Poland when they retraced the path from Treblinka to the pit in the Polish forest where they hid until their liberation. As Treiger became invigorated and inspired by the people she encountered, Sam and Esther’s story became her story too.Since the book’s publication, Treiger has crisscrossed the country to bring this compelling story to a wide audience. In June she traveled to Poland to launch the Polish translation of the book and spoke at the Warsaw Museum of Ethnography and at the Krakow Jewish Festival. She has been named to the Jewish Book Council Author’s Network, the Seattle Holocaust Center for Humanity Speaker’s Bureau, and the University of Washington Advisory Council for the Extension Writing Program. Her perspectives have been shared in the Forward and the Jewish Press.........Follow the Just Get Started Podcast:Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/justgetstartedpodcastFacebook https://www.facebook.com/justgetstartedpodcastLearn more about the host, Brian OndrakoBrian's Now Page: https://www.brianondrako.com/now/Brian's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brianondrako/Brian's Twitter: https://twitter.com/brianondrakoBrian's Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brianondrako/

#154 Matthew Yahes on Getting Laid Off, Virtual Assistants, and Growing Profits

Episode 154 features Matthew Yahes, Founder and CEO of Extend Your Team and helps entrepreneurs and operators of all company sizes grow their business by getting out of the grind.Find Matthew Online:Website: www.extendyourteam.comLinkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/yahes/About Matthew:As the founder of Extend Your team, a Virtual Assistant company, Matthew Yahes helps entrepreneurs and operators of all company sizes grow their business by getting out of the grind. Matthew was working 14 hours a day on his eCommerce portfolio, managing a team of 6, was buried in operations, and it was affecting his marriage. The situation was not tenable. He had enough and finally figured out how to hire an A+ player overseas who could run the operations better than him so he could focus on growth. He realized that the core issue is people look for a "Virtual Assistant" and not a "Real Professional". In 45 days, Matthew went from working 14 hours to 3 hours a day, and now it's 3 hours a week. Matthew built his past two companies with a 100% remote workforce and now helps others do the same. In his spare time, he snowboards well, kiteboards poorly, and enjoys life with his incredibly patient wife.........Thank you for listening!I’d appreciate a 5-star review on Apple Podcasts if you believe I’ve earned it. - Leave a ReviewFollow the Just Get Started Podcast:Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/justgetstartedpodcastFacebook https://www.facebook.com/justgetstartedpodcastLearn more about the host, Brian OndrakoBrian's Now Page: https://www.brianondrako.com/now/Brian's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brianondrako/Brian's Twitter: https://twitter.com/brianondrakoBrian's Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brianondrako/
