How to fall back in love with your job - with Monique Shaw

Season 2, Ep. 10

Hello everyone and welcome to Season 2 of The Rewriters!

In today’s special solo cast episode, I am going to walk you through how you can fall back in love with your career without quitting your job!

This episode was inspired by my beautiful friend (and the talent behind the podcast's original music) DJ Cinnamon.She texted me over the Summer asking if people could rewrite their career story in their current jobs and my answer was Yes! Yes! YES! 100% they can! 

In this episode I share:

  • What I mean by inside-out career change
  • 4 steps you can take to fall back in love with your current job
  • How to self-promote (particularly if you loathe self-promotion)
  • Why I think careers are like gardens

Throughout the episode I share a number of questions for you to explore and exercises you can work through so keep your notebook handy when you listen. 

It’s an opportunity for us all to check in with where we are in our work lives and make the necessary tweaks to fall in love with our jobs again or get clear about what we need in the next one.

Overcoming the need to know for sure – with Nicki Coe

Season 2, Ep. 15
Hello Rewriters - Happy International Women's Day and welcome to this month’s episode.Today I'm speaking with Nicki Coe - Marketing Strategist, Business Coach and Co-Founder of the marketing agency Luna & Lion.Nicki worked in corporate media for many years but always knew she wanted to work for herself someday. Although she was constantly coming up with business ideas and plans, nothing stuck – she was always stumped by not having all of the answers and all of the detail laid out before she began. It was only when she overcame the old story that success requires you to know where you want to go that she was able to embrace and trust the pull of the next step, rather than planning for the big end destination. Ultimately, it was through this letting go of control and the need to know for sure that led to her creating two successful and fulfilling businesses.During our conversation Nicki shares her thoughts on:Overcome the need to know for sure in your careerStarting a business with your best friendUsing your emotions and feelings in goal & business planningResources discussed:Risk Forward: the Rewards of Not Knowing | Victoria Labalme | TEDxSantaBarbara: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TC6NIY56S0AThe Source | Dr. Tara Swart: https://www.taraswart.com/the-source/Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing (Tuckman's Model): https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newLDR_86.htmConnect with Nicki CoeConnect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nicki_coe/?hl=enExplore more: https://nickicoe.com/Find out more about Luna+LionConnect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lunaandlionagency/?hl=enExplore more: https://lunaandlion.com/Connect with MoniqueGet ‘The Weekly Rewrite’ for tips and stories about creating a work+life that works: www.rewriterewrite.com/get-the-weekly-rewrite.My flagship 6-week group programme Rewrite Your Career Story starts again Monday 30th May 2022 – join the wait list here: www.rewriterewrite.com/rycs-waitlistConnect on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/the_rewriters/?hl=en and LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/moniquelshaw/The Rewriters is written, produced and presented by Monique Shaw.
