Empowered Women: Finding Story Behind the Story with Jody Seay

Most of us wish we could write well, many of us want to write a book. Not many of us know how-to and where-to start or what-to-do.

That’s why award winning author Jody Seay, awesome person that she is, shares her experience of writing. So that we can learn and may be write a book on our own. One day.

Jody credits her late mother for kindling her love for storytelling. As an accomplished author, she takes every opportunity to learn more about the people who inspire her essays and books. By taking upon a genuine interest in others and being passionate in everything she does, Jody has been awarded for a wide range of career successes.

Listen to Jody discuss how to look for the “story behind the story” and how that mindset helped her create her newest book, Almost a Murder. The less obvious story is the one that “touches people’s hearts.”

When we dig a little deeper, we often enhance our understanding of whom we are talking to, and we become better communicators. Armed with empathy, we may become stronger writers.

What story, event, or article are you going to explore more deeply today? May be even write a story about it?

Empowered Women: Yoselin Bugallo on How to Make Others Value Your Career

Your gift for the International Women’s Day is here!

As women, we often have to convince others of the value of our careers. How do we find balance and draw boundaries in our personal and professional lives?

This episode of “Empowered Women Empower Women,” is with Yoselin Bugallo, the Director of Admissions at the NYU Stern School of Business. As a specialist in career development, Yoselin has learned a variety of lessons over the years—and one piece of advice that stood out to her was that who you choose as your life partner is one of the most important decisions you make in your career.

We’re trained to look at our life in buckets that we keep separate. Everyone has a career bucket, which we’re told shouldn’t mix with our personal bucket. But we don’t really live in buckets. What happens in our personal lives and in our support systems reflects on our career. Surrounding yourself with a support system that can pitch in when you ask for help can be the framework for a great career.

Enjoy your gift and share it with others!
