Episode 54 - No Labels, No Limits podcast - with Cheryl Mayberry McKissack, Business Leader, Author and Speaker

Season 1, Ep. 54

We welcome today's guest Cheryl Mayberry McKissack, a woman of many talents. She is a professional speaker, author, and teacher. You may have heard of the Kellogg School of Business - she was a Professor there. Among her many positions held, she was the CEO at Ebony, a VP at US Robotics, and is the current CEO and Founder of Nia Enterprises. 

She leaves our listeners with a piece of great advice when she says, "Regardless of what you're doing, whether you're working for a nonprofit, whether you're working for a corporation or you're an entrepreneur, is that everyone needs to think like an entrepreneur. What I mean by that is that the skills and characteristics that entrepreneurs have, whether it be their purpose, their passion, innovation, ability to take risks, desire to grow, those are all things that I think each of us can really put into our personal lives." 

With her multitude of experiences, she came to a few revelations. "I found that I wanted to have diversity in all aspects of my life. In the relationships that I had, the friends that I had, the organizations that I participated in because I don't think that I'm just about one thing. I think most of us are just about one thing. I think we're all pretty diverse in our likes and dislikes and our wants and our needs. We're really responsible for making sure that we create our own lifestyles that allow us to do that. And so you have to ask yourself some really important questions."

She is a frequent speaker and presenter on women’s leadership, girls empowerment and the role social media and technology plays on girls self-esteem, confidence and brain health. Where does she find the inspiration? Maria says, "Inspiration is everywhere. You have to look to find it, but it's really found in those ordinary women, right? We call them ordinary because we haven't heard about them in the media. But it's those everyday women that are seeking their truth and they're being vulnerable and they're sharing it and, and they just keep going. Even though they hit a wall, they pivot and they try again. They inspire me to keep going."

Episode 64 - No Labels, No Limits podcast - with Joe Pettit, Professional Speaker and Nutrition Expert

Season 1, Ep. 64
It’s our honor today to interview Joe Pettit, a Professional Speaker, and a Nutrition Services Expert. He is quickly becoming one of the hottest speakers on resilience, producing results by strengthening your personal development, and leadership. He has an uncanny ability to engage, connect, and inspire audiences. He presents at state and national conferences, nonprofits, and schools. A blogger, entrepreneur, and motivation addict – he’s got an incredibly interesting story. Take a listen. Here are his instructions and advice for a smooth, daily flow, “How you set up your daily routine is how you will be able to conquer your mind, how you start your day and how you end your day. The first thing that I do when I wake up, I just say something that I'm grateful for, what, what is my mission for the day? And then immediately I go into listening to motivational videos. Now, I believe that a couple of things that cause the most friction in the morning is what we wear and what we eat. So, to eliminate this friction, at night I pick out my clothes and iron them. Then, I go ahead and cook and prepare my breakfast so that once I wake up in the morning, it's a smooth process. That is how I make sure the day is aligned.” His last bit of advice is, “Ultimately, I think there's one thing that we forget is that life is long and we need to be really patient, that things don't have to happen right away. But the number one message is to be aware of who you are and be okay with who you are.” Connect with Joe and learn more about his Garden here: www.joepettitinspires.com - get your free ebook on Inspiring Leadership FB: Joe Pettit Instagram: Joe Pettit Inspires LinkedIn: Joe Pettit #cupofjoe #NLNLpodcast #speaker #leadership #beokaywithyou #inpsiration
