Episode 029 - No Labels, No Limits - with Jackie Auguste, Lead Singer and Musician

Season 1, Ep. 29

Women play such a vital role in music, not only in the past, but today as well. In this episode, we interview lead singer and multi-instrumental musician Jackie Auguste and bass player Andy Ramjattan of the Pop Rock band, Across The Board. They come together to share their unique story and give us practical business advice on managing all aspects of a music career. In a few short years, they've experienced so much success, culminating with their second album, SONIC BOOM, just released May 5th, 2018.

When asked about their musical success, Jackie says, "You need to know about social marketing, social media marketing. You need to know what the trends are and what's changing, where you should be now. You also have to have your own website or a landing page." When asked about challenges she's faced, Jackie says, "We as artists have to help other artists come into their own. Don't be scared to put something that's less than polished either. People want to see the struggle."

Andy gives great advice when he says, "Be happy about what you're doing and it'll take you to that next level, only when you're having fun and you like what you do."

Across The Board has contributed to some amazing causes and has worked closely with a non-profit group that supports Ovarian Cancer in Canada. They recently collaborated and wrote a song called "She's Listening" which was given to the charity.

When discussing advice that we might give to our younger selves, she says, "Every kid should learn how to read music, learn the basic chords on a guitar, learn to sing a few notes and learn how to play in rhythm on a tambourine."

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: - get your free ebook on Inspiring Leadership FB: Joe Pettit Instagram: Joe Pettit Inspires LinkedIn: Joe Pettit #cupofjoe #NLNLpodcast #speaker #leadership #beokaywithyou #inpsiration
