Adversity is something we all face to varying degrees. Even though life hands more adversity to some than others, we all have a choice on how we choose to let it affect our lives.
In today's episode, I get to talk to Erika Ashley about how to turn adversity in our creative advantage. We talk about her personal journey with this and expand it to principles that can help us all!
A little more about Erika:
Erika Ashley is a Transformational Business Strategist and member of the Forbes Coaches Council helping millennial women turn their adversity into their creative advantage so they can skyrocket their visibility in the press and scale their business to six and multiple six figures. Erika believes that if she, a queer; over-weight; a chronically ill woman from a poor immigrant family, can succeed, anyone can. She's been featured in Forbes, Nylon, MindBodyGreen, Health, HuffPost, Thrive Global and more.
One of my favorite things about podcasting is being able to talk to people who I look up to and who inspire me. I've been following Lynette and her YouTube channel for a couple years now. One day, I decided to reach out to her and see if she wanted to share her story on the podcast. I feel so honored that this incredible woman said yes!
Lynette has been an inspiration to me in many ways but especially in her ability to stay authentic even while being in the public eye. I loved this interview so much because we got to cover a lot of things along that topic of conversation.
A little about Lynette-
Lynette Hoyle is an online personal trainer, YouTuber, and social media influencer. Her brand and her business help give women the tools, knowledge, and confidence they need to take control of their health and fitness goals in a way that can create balance and harmony in their lives and in their relationship with themselves. From college students to women in retirement, Lynette has helped many find a fitness and nutrition regiment that supports weight loss while still allowing people to enjoy their lives without fear or guilt regarding food or the gym.
In today's interview, we talk about company culture. Culture is something that we all know is important, but few of us are actually intentional about putting the day-to-day work in to make our desired company culture come to life. I am in LOVE with the topic of company culture so this conversation with Tynan Wenarchuk was so much fun!
From researcher to internationally recognized entrepreneur, Tynan Wenarchuk has had a dynamic and unexpected journey. In 2015, Tynan started Illuminate Culture Consulting, a firm that works with companies to target business growth through advanced people + culture insights. As the people fanatics & the “un-stickers,” Tynan and his team are known as the go-to support during the chaotic fast-growth period of a company. With their help, your company can be sure to scale while building the world-class culture you’ve been imagining. Alongside building Illuminate, Tynan keeps a full schedule as a musician and fitness coach, travels the world as a missionary, and exuberantly volunteers for his church and broader community.
Welcome back to another Monday episode! I've officially named these episodes: Coffee with Chelann Mondays. Why? Because the first Monday of every month I will be releasing a bonus episode for the week with myself either doing a solo episode on an asked for topic, or I'll be featuring a conversation I had with a special guest. And, you all know I love coffee. So, hence that part of the title. ;)
I am SO stoked for today's episode because it features a conversation with myself and my business partners, Teliah Gienger and Kennedy Wilkinson. The direction of this conversation was all centered around how to have a good business partnership.
I talk about business partnerships and Teliah and Kennedy a lot on EB25 episodes, so it's about time that you guys hear from them yourselves! I absolutely LOVE this conversation because it's such a good representation of who we are and what life is really like in our businesses. I'm so excited for you guys to listen and can't wait to hear what you thought about it!
So, sit back and get ready to laugh because you're about to get a candid glimpse into our everyday lives. ;)
