From victim to hero. Julia Lazareck is closing the empathy gap. After her brother passed away while incarcerated, Julia realized she had been living the sentence along with him. After coming to this realization, Julia started talking to people and was lucky to find a support group. She was at a low point in her life, confused with guilt and shame, but these people showed her that she could live her own life and that she had a lot of life left. Julia founded the blog Prison: The Hidden Sentence where she told her story and began interviewing people so that they could share their stories and raise awareness about the traumatic experience families go through having a loved one incarcerated. The Nevada Department of Corrections, FIT, and CURE have been great programs for people with re-entry, bringing more support to the families so they can lead balanced lives, and work with the local support group Friends and Family of Incarcerated Persons (FFIP). 

 

Julia Lazareck is available to speak to your group or organization to help spread awareness.

A dedication and an understanding that she was going have to work on her mindset is what propelled Leah Garcia as she became her own boss. When re-inventing herself she knew that she wanted to do something great that would impact people positively and leave a legacy behind. She never stood out in a crowd, but still wanted to be impactful. Hearing stories of other people is the best way she can learn how to best assist them in meeting their financial goals. Collaboration and partnership are the tools she uses to cultivate successful relationships in business.

Sonia Petkowich’s father taught her early on to “leave things better than you found them,” and also that there is value to having an impact on the community. At a young age she was very independent, so she knew she didn’t want to be working in the system, as another cog in the wheel. She didn’t let a lack of a college degree hold her back. Mentorship and sponsorship were powerful tools she used to propel her forward. Sonia reminds us that knowing the difference between a mentor and a sponsor can help you get ahead in your career. Having someone to stand behind you to “co-sign” for you on the project is useful, so find a sponsor who can help support you on projects. Still using the spray and pray method for job hunting?  If you are looking for job placement within the Information Technology community, then Taurean Consulting Group can help prepare and coach you to find the right position for your goals. Sending out the same resume to multiple job openings and praying that someone will hire you is not a good tactic. Also, recruiters shouldn’t charge the candidates. Taurean Consulting does not charge candidates when they apply for work. Learn more at: http://www.taureanconsulting.net/

1999 was the magic year for Kevin A. Dunlap, while he was working as a computer programmer for Y2K. His position at his company was eradicated without notice, without severance. He vowed to become an entrepreneur from that day forward. In 2004 he moved to Vegas to continue his work as a business strategist. His advice to fellow entrepreneurs? You have to know where you are going to be in the future. Have a business plan about what’s happening within your industry’s future.

Ronda Taylor comes back to the podcast to share more about her life and perspective. 

From Ronda's Facebook page:

At the age of 53, I find myself starting a new chapter in my life—one of awareness, self-discovery, and surrendering to the unknown. I invite you to walk alongside me as I live, work, and volunteer my time and services to empower and support women entrepreneurs as I travel throughout Central and South America over the course of the next several months.

Readied with a one-way ticket, an open itinerary, and a profound sense of gratitude, I am about to embark on a journey that was inspired over 15 years ago. A journey that is part business, part personal, part spiritual, and entirely whole-hearted.

It’s business.

As a book publisher and award-winning book designer, my heart’s work is bringing an author’s vision to life and sharing their message with the world. I’m looking forward to volunteering my skills, as I work side-by-side with women entrepreneurs as I pursue my own dream of becoming an author. I will write a book documenting my journey with photographs, sharing my experiences, travel adventures, and the stories of those I meet along the way.

It’s personal.

It means creating a space for new opportunity. And in doing so, letting go of what no longer serves me. Imagine—paring down 30+ years of meaningful possessions and family keepsakes to that which would fit in the space of a 10x10 storage unit. Pictures taken from frames where they had been kept for years. Christmas decorations divided and shared amongst the kids and grandkids. Saying goodbye to the kitchen table around which so many dinners were held, conversations had and news shared. It meant watching items that once represented family memories and heartfelt stories leave in the hands of unsuspecting strangers.

It’s spiritual.

In order to honor and reconnect with my heart, I have chosen to begin my journey by spending the first three weeks volunteering in an Ashram Yogi community in the jungles of Nicaragua. Part of my contribution will include gardening, gathering fresh fruits and vegetables for our meals, preparing plant-based meals, and looking after Xian’s 18-month-old twin boys.

“I believe everyone has a greatness” Sophia Falke
