Jenny is also a growing influencer, especially on TikTok so, feel free to check her out!Control What You Can, But Equally Meet SurrenderingJenny Chang says that every entrepreneur and creator has this syndrome of wanting everything to be perfect. People want everything to be perfect to the point that they eventually don’t even start because they are stuck in the shadow of their plans instead of getting their product out there or getting connections, etc. She says that creators should change their perspective and quotes that “It’s not I wanna start this business, it’s the world that needs this business.” To intentionally create an experience that we want, Jenny says we should build the bridge between control and surrender and points out that, “Control what you can but equally meet surrendering,” which is trusting the process and not controlling something so tight that you lose grip.About Jenny Chang:Jenny Chang is an event planner who managed to grow with zero experience when she started at the age of 19.

Redefining Brands with Maayan Gordon
In today’s episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and my guest, Maayan Gordon, as we talk about changing your mindset and redefining your brand. Maayan is a glassblower, business owner, consultant, and influencer. She always loved sharing her life experiences creatively, and making short videos on TikTok was one of them. But it was not long until her experiences led her to viral success. Now, Maayan has over a decade of social media marketing experience, which helps her run her consulting agency Champion Empire. If you want to learn more about their media marketing services, feel free to check out their company website!Changing Your MindsetThe ever-growing activity and number of influencers on social media platforms can be intimidating. After all, taking the first step is always the scariest. But this fear did not stop Maayan Gordon from achieving her dreams as an entrepreneur, albeit an unconventional path towards it. She believes that our mindset is the only thing holding us back from exploring the endless opportunities life has to offer. All we have to do is change it.Take social media marketing and branding, for example. Yes, social media can be confusing or even a bit nerve-wracking sometimes. But if we limit our perception of social media as being against us, we lose sight of the possibilities social media can offer for us. After that, start asking yourself the questions: “Where does one start creating a brand or a business?”, “Which social media platforms should I use and focus on?” and “Who should my target audience be?” As long as you understand that success online is not just about numbers, you may find yourself in the right direction as a budding online content creator. Focusing on the algorithms is still essential, but that is not what you should be focusing on when building a brand. As Maayan said, know who your audience is and let them feel empowered and included in your content. This way, you create a community that will engage with you long-term.The Value of Sharing ExperiencesKnowing your audience is crucial, especially for online content creators, but we often forget who our audience should be. If you are just starting and have no clue who your audience is, one way to know is to speak to yourself. Maayan, for one, started with content creation by talking to herself. She would constantly remind herself of what she has been through and what she has learned to inspire herself despite the odds.At the end of the day, everyone’s life experience is valuable. But not everyone can take the first step of sharing that value with others. Indeed, you have been through things that other people are going through right now, which means you have so much value to share with them. As soon as you realize this, you will gain the courage to share them with others. Being good at social media is one thing, but understanding who your audiences are is just as important. Again, if ever you forget who your audience is, speak to yourself because, in the end, your primary audience should always be you. In turn, you attract like-minded people who can help you along the way.About Maayan Gordon:Maayan Gordon is a four-time business owner, social media consultant, and Tiktok famous influencer. Her life has been an incredible but no less difficult journey, from college dropout to accomplished entrepreneur. She even rose from homelessness and survived a gas explosion of all things.But with over 2 million followers on Tiktok, Maayan found success in sharing her life experiences by making short videos about them. Following her success on the platform, she later opened her consulting agency Champion Empire in 2020. The company offers coaching, media, and marketing services to those who wish to start an online business. Besides being a consultant, Maayan is also a skilled glassblower and has sold more than $1 Million in glass art directly through... See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

How to Build a YOU Brand with Julia Goodman
In today’s episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and my guest, Julia Goodman, as we talk about how to build a ‘you’ brand. Julia is an actress, producer, director, and performance coach. She loves being able to help people accept themselves for who they are and find their self-confidence within that. Julia is also the author of the inspiring book You Brand: A Manual for Confidence. Feel free to check it out!Functional and Dysfunctional PerfectionismWe all have some degree of perfectionism in us. But perfectionism can either work for you or against you, and for Julia, it is the former. Julia Goodman likened functional and dysfunctional perfectionism to climbing mountains. According to her, dysfunctional perfectionism would be climbing one peak after the other with no breaks in between. Meanwhile, functional perfectionism would have more steps. The first step would be climbing the ‘mountain.’ But the next step would not be climbing another one soon after. Instead, it would be taking a break, recognizing back at your efforts, and moving on to the next one.Here, Julia emphasizes the importance of taking a step back and letting go. Do not think about how you fail but rather think about how you can improve from then. At first, you might think of yourself as an imposter. You might even be afraid that others would find out that you do not know what you are doing, which is okay. As long as you understand that you do not have to be perfect, the fear will gradually go away, and confidence will take its place. You just have to give yourself that time to do so.How to Use Perception and Fear“Perception is reality,” says Julia Goodman. She then explains how the different ways people view each other can significantly influence their reality. Julia calls it the “perception gap”. Only a few understand it, and even fewer know how to handle it. In her book You Brand: A Manual for Confidence, she further talks about the “perception gap” and how it can affect our overall performance, not just on stage but in everyday life. Her book also includes how to gain self-confidence and what skills you need to do so.“Fear generates in you huge energy. You can use it,” Julia quoted from Dame Judi Dench. She then says that fear is like petrol; it is as helpful as it is dangerous. Like perfectionism, fear can either poison you or strengthen you. In the end, it all depends on how you handle it.About Julia Goodman:Julia Goodman was an actress, producer, and director for 27 years. She enjoyed early stardom in The Brothers and has appeared in several screen productions such as The Lotus Eaters and Beyond Reason. Along with Kate O’Mara, Julia is the co-founder of the British Actors Theatre Company. She even played leading roles in various Shakespearean performances worldwide.Julia also founded Personal Presentation in 1989 after a European tour playing Lady Macbeth. The idea came to her while she contemplated the prospect of life as a divorced single mother of two children. For a time, Julia barely survived on £74 a week social security. But three years later, she turned over her first million in euros.Her You brand coaching methodology is rooted in the professional theatre’s psychology and techniques. It gives people a practical toolkit that allows them to develop as authentic and impactful communicators by showing them how to ‘perform as themselves.’ Hence, they come across as genuine, natural, and confident wherever they are.Outline of the episode:[04:09] Julia’s childhood and upbringing.[06:26] Gaining independence amid group mentality.[09:55] Her path to freedom from the entertainment industry.[12:25] Why people often lose themselves.[14:54] How one’s presence is a key to influence others.[18:40] The rise of imposter syndrome during the quarantine.[21:22] Why self-acceptance is essential.[24:12] Tayo and Julia’s experiences with...

The power of constantly improving, learning, and not letting anything stop you, not even your excuses, cannot be understated. Keep yourself open to your resources. “Keep learning.

And from those conversations, they delve deeper into the “Nature versus Nurture” discussion regarding being an entrepreneur. The progression of technology and the information age landscape has drastically shifted business compared to way back when. Collaborating with other brilliant minds, and far more sprawling and interplaying topics all seem to connect to Justin’s vast experience working in the industry. In this episode, he also touches on how he utilized his craft and how it benefited him in the long run. “Work hard, smart, and do what needs to be done” is how Justin sees the industry and even the world.About Justin Breen:Justin Breen is an outlier, even among entrepreneurs, and a problem-solver.

562: Embracing the Art of Kindness with Cole Baker-Bagwell
In today’s episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and my guest, Cole Baker-Bagwell, as we talk about embracing the art of kindness. Cole is the founder of Cool Audrey and the host of the Kindness Think Tank Podcast, she dedicates herself to living with kindness and teaching people the importance of being kind. She shares in this episode the truths and important factors to consider about kindness. It is not always easy to be kind, that’s why it is a constant journey of awareness and learning from mistakes.The Power of KindnessIn this fast-paced world filled with responsibilities and disasters, many people have forgotten the importance of kindness. Others think that being kind means you’re weak and vulnerable. As a result, they close their hearts off to everyone around them. Furthermore, there’s nothing wrong with being vulnerable because you’re being who you really are, and kindness is strength. The power of kindness is endless, and the impact you could have on other people’s lives is incomparable. Not everyone has the courage to try and live with kindness because the journey is not easy. They have become used to living and thinking only of themselves. Whereas this is not always their fault, but you are also partly responsible for what you allow to influence and hurt you. Trust me kindness will bring more opportunities in your life rather than being unkind. With the guidance of kindness, you’ll learn to become your best self.Learning how to be KindAll human beings are inherently good and are wired to be compassionate. However, as we grow older, external factors begin to influence us to act otherwise. When we fail to become aware of these changes within ourselves, we lose sight of who we are. Although being kind seems easy, it can be difficult without guidance if you have no idea what it exactly is. Just like the skills we learn in school, kindness is a skill that needs to be learned and practiced. It needs a lot of awareness, commitment, and consistency. In order to treat people with kindness and compassion, you first have to have self-love. You can’t genuinely give what you don’t have and know. It starts with ourselves, and it’s important that you don’t miss any steps to really understand the value this can bring. Especially today, in this pandemic, we need kindness now more than ever.About Cole Baker-Bagwell:Cole is an unconventional blend of a business person, mindfulness practitioner, and yogi. She left her corporate career in 2019 to start building her own company. Today, Cole is the founder and Chief Kindness Advisor of Cool Audrey, a US based Consulting firm, teaching companies how to put kindness to work as a core business competency that runs through every fiber of the organization. Outline of the episode:[03:43] Bringing kindness in the world in a practical way.[05:07] Everyone is inherently good and wired with compassion.[07:15] Religion and the evil three influencing our heinous acts.[11:11] Valuing kindness as a core value of a company.[14:08] Always start from a place of kindness.[16:57] Awareness and disrupting negative neural pathways.[20:18] Kindness doesn’t come easy for everyone; it needs to be cultivated.[23:19] The importance of manifesting positive situations.[28:07] Losing sight of your best self and believing there’s no other choice.

561: Using Music As A Form of Diplomacy with Christy Jeziorski
In today’s episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and my guest, Christy Jeziorski, as we talk about using music as a form of diplomacy. Christy is a social entrepreneur, music consultant, creative strategist, and founder of Inity. At a young age, she has already been passionate about music and her journey always led her back to it. Music is so powerful in many ways; listen to the episode now and learn how this has changed her life! Listen to your Intuition Intuition or gut instincts are personal feelings and immediate understandings of certain matters that are mostly always right. Many people neglect their intuition because they’re afraid of the outcome if they follow what they feel. It can be very difficult to follow them, especially when you’re focused on the negative situations that might happen. On the contrary, listening to your intuitions protect you from harmful situations and relationships. It helps you become more aware and avoid unnecessary matters that will waste your time. If you start to acknowledge and accept your gut instincts, your path will be clearer. You can’t really say that your intuition is wrong when you don’t try to prove it right. There are many instances in our life when we wished that we should’ve followed our intuitions from the start. Don’t let overthinking interfere or hinder you from what you think is best for you.Breaking Away from ExpectationsPeople will always have expectations for who you are and what they want you to do. It is hard to break away from these expectations when they’re from our families. We start becoming hesitant to follow our passion because of what others are saying. However, it is important that you realize that you’re the one that should create your future and not anyone else. When you let other people dictate who you should become, you’ll live your life unfulfilled and confused. Christy said that it is important that people find that passion or purpose in their life that makes them feel happy that they could turn into their careers. By having the courage to work hard for your passion, you will never feel like you’re simply working to earn money. Instead, you’ll feel and living your life with a purpose.About Christy Jeziorski:,Christy is a music industry professional with over 40 concerts and festivals under her belt as an independent producer and promoter, including the reggae and global music series at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, Colorado, and two seasons of Miami Reggae Festival.A consultant and strategist for artists in the global roots music scene (reggae, jazz, afrobeat, folktronica, music of Latin America), and she strives to help artists and brands connect with their audiences through campaigns that are both insight-driven and socially impactful, while at the same time catalyze a form of cultural exchange and diplomacy across borders.Over the last decade, Christy lived and studied in Los Angeles, South Africa, Belize, Denver and Palm Springs. She vibes with others who love music and value inclusion, social justice, and equity. Outline of the episode:[04:53] Who Christy wanted to be when she was young.[06:19] The two cultures she was exposed to growing up.[07:36] How Christy’s identity developed and changed.[11:53] The importance of acceptance and intuition.[15:29] Breaking away from the expectations of other people.[18:39] It’s a constant process of figuring things out.[21:52] Be more free in life and don’t worry so much.[25:19] Music has always been a big part of her life.[27:45] The start of her entrepreneurial journey.[30:43] Christy’s fallback in life is always music.[34:40] Pursue your passion and what gives you joy.[37:38] Follow your intuition and listen to your gut feelings.[39:19] Christy’s plan of shifting her identity and self.[43:32] Using music as a form of diplomacy.Resources:Christy’s Linkedin:...
