057: What do numbers have to do with success?

“We have a tendency to focus on the negative rather than the… goals that have been really successful and one of the reasons for that is an obsession with numbers.” ~Andrea Klunder

Being successful, being seen, being heard…

Happy New Year!!! How are you? What are you up to creatively this year? Intentions… visions… desires… are you going to switch things up or are you going to really stick it out and drill deeper into what’s already working?

And how will you measure success?

“Numbers are the easiest way to measure things, but they’re not always the biggest indicators of success.” ~Andrea Klunder

056: Affirm yourself, Kelly Covert, Inner Voice Coach & Host of In Her Voice Podcast

“One minute does not change who I am.” ~Kelly Covert (upon reflecting over the disappointment of missing her triathlon personal record by one minute.)

Everything counts…

I met Kelly Covert online through a podcast mentoring program with Elsie Escobar (episode 044) and then in person at 2017 Podcast Movement and I LOVE Kelly’s presence. She is affirming, clear and joyful. She is an incredible listener AND she totally gets my type A, overachiever, creative perfectionist personality. I knew immediately she needed to be here on the show, talking with you!

In this episode we talk about the true inner voice you want to listen to (i.e. NOT the impostor voice or inner mean girl), daily practices for cultivating your connection to that voice and your deepest desires, overcoming perfectionism and recognizing your own inherent worth outside of achievement and productivity.

“If you never do another thing, you are worthy right now.” ~Kelly Covert

051: Take a risk, solve a problem, learn something new, Nikki Ricks, FemiNest

“Failure is okay, and you learn so much from failure… you would never know that unless you actually took the risk.” ~Nikki Ricks

You don’t have to do this alone…

Nikki and I discovered each other at a creative women’s mentoring brunch, but we didn’t actually meet… until she reached out to me after the fact and NOW we are huge fans of each other and THAT is exactly what Nikki does — make connections.

Another thing she does really well is business branding and reinvention — which she just did! In the episode, you’re going to hear me talking about Gab Lab, and all of it is true but between our conversation and now, she has rebranded her creative coaching business to FemiNest and, well…  it’s a perfect new iteration of Nikki and everything she empowers her coaching clients to do.

About Nikki Ricks

“Running a business is almost like athletics, where it’s 90% mental and 10% technical.” ~Nikki Ricks

Nikki is a business coach for creative women-owned businesses.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in communications and master’s degree in urban planning, she was working at a Chicago architecture firm when she had her first daughter. Nikki wanted a more flexible way to work, which sparked the idea of creating a coworking space with in-house childcare. As she researched the market and held events at local coworking and play spaces, her favorite part of the business was meeting more of Chicago’s incredible, inspirational, powerful professional women and talking to them about their work.

She has been helping women get organized since implementing the rotating recess snack with her first-grade girl gang and overhauling friends’ rooms on play dates.

Now Nikki works at FemiNest, where her goal is to help build scalable businesses straight from the brains of female entrepreneurs. In her free time she mentors at 1871 and 2112. She loves goals, business models, to-do lists, brainstorming, efficiency, and getting you a freaking paycheck.

047: Become a co-conspirator for social justice, Sarah Dennis & Ashley Lana Scott

“We’re all different and that’s part of human nature, to celebrate those differences.” -Sarah Dennis

Calling in, rather than calling out…

In this episode, I had the privilege to discuss the history and the current reality of racism in our society as well as the potential for change from the inside out (and the outside in) with educator Sarah Dennis and artist & activist Ashley Lana Scott.

Sarah and Ashley had never met before so this was a truly candid conversation about what it takes to be an ally, how to support one another in looking inward at our internalized racism (regardless of skin color), and why these sometimes uncomfortable conversations are crucial to the cultural dialogue. (BTW, that’s the difference between calling in and calling out…  IN is initiating a conversation, OUT is pointing a finger in an accusatory way.)

Of course we talk about impostor syndrome and feeling like a total fraud when trying to have said difficult conversations, too!

This is a conversation that is humorous, sensitive, hopeful and deeply thought-provoking.

So take a deep breath, relax your mind open, have a listen, and let me know what you think over in the Facebook Group…

And if you haven’t already, check out Episode 045: Talking to strangers, where you’ll hear how I met Julie and why I’m taking on a theme on the show that pushes me out of my comfort zone. Also, Episode 046 with Andrea Ranae Johnson on how to use your power and privilege for good.

“At the end of the day, the thing that is pulling the strings is our silence, on every side, and that silence is deadly. Like Sarah was saying, when you allow yourself to feel that shame and then you don’t want to do anything about it, you allow it to overcome your action, it makes the decision for you… I suggest getting your hands dirty with that shame.” -Ashley Lana Scott

Sarah Dennis’s Website

“I actually like the word ‘co-conspirator’ better, I think ‘ally’ is really soft and wimpy. For me it’s not a call to action, being an ally. But being a co-conspirator makes me feel like, “I want to dismantle this system and I’m going to do anything I can to figure out what that looks like.” -Sarah Dennis

About Sarah Dennis

Ph.D, Biography

I grew up in Chicago, attending a Chicago Public Magnet school that attracted children from diverse racial, ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds near the Cabrini Green Housing Project in the mid-late 80s/early 90s. From the young age of about 10, I was inspired to become an engaging educator committed to social justice to help turn children on to the love of learning and reading, and try to change the inequities in many of the systems in the United States. Also from the age of 10, I was a proud member of the Chicago Children’s Choir, a multi-cultural, multi-racial, secular city-wide organization committed to social justice. My experiences at my elementary school and choir helped shape my commitment to social justice.

After attending New York University for a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and then teaching preschool/Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades at public schools in New York City, I began coaching and mentoring preschool teachers in the Best Practices in Early Literacy Project, which led to two Early Reading First projects (2002-’05 & 2005-’08). During these years, I earned a Masters in Literacy Education (2005) and a doctorate in Early Childhood (2008) from New York University.

I have presented at many dozens of conferences nationally including the National Head Start Research Conference in Washington D.C. (2002, ’04, ’06 & ’08), NAEYC’s Professional Development Institute (Pittsburg, 2007; Indianapolis, 2012), NIEER’s Conference (2002), the Early Reading First Grantees Meeting (2004 in AZ, 2005 in FL, 2007 in CA), the Illinois Reading Council Conference (Springfield, 2011-2014), and have provided professional development and coaching to many hundreds of teachers and coaches. I have also been assessing and tutoring children (Kindergarten-HS) for nearly 15 years in NYC and Chicago.

I am the founder and co-leader of the Illinois Chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education: Advancing and Advocating for Social Justice & Equity, and have also founded and co-lead the Families for Racial Justice Chicago Facebook Group. I recently participated as part of a panel on anti-racism for the Quentin B. Young Equity Project (Feb 2017) (see photo below), and I am currently in training to hopefully become a trainer with the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond.

I hope to hear from you soon to see how I can support your work to inspire the children of the next generation!

040: All the things I am NOT

“I looked at everything I saw being done and asked: What else? What isn’t here? How could I do this differently? What is a way to approach this problem that only I can (or will?)” ~Andrea Klunder

Swimming my way out of the impostor cycle…

Last week I released a very fun, funny, insightful, inspiring interview with Jennifer Briney of Congressional Dish podcast and we both admitted to having imposter-y feelings independently of each other on the same day AT the same podcasting conference.

She was there to give a keynote about her brilliant listener supported funding model for her show in a month when her revenue had dipped to its lowest point in quite some time.

And I was pitched by her agent to interview her on my show in a month when my download numbers were abysmal b/c I basically hadn’t published an episode for 6 weeks.

She was thinking “Who am I to talk to all these people about getting listeners to fund your podcast?”

And I was thinking “Who am I to have a keynote speaker with thousands of followers on my dinky little show?”

The other day, I was teaching yoga to a group of my Kindergarten and pre-K students and one of the things that we do is toward the end, after they’ve gotten to run around in circles and make animals sounds and play crazy yoga games, we have quiet coloring time before our rest time (i.e. savasana.) I asked them to drawan animal of their choice playing however they would like and I took out some crayons to join them. 

I drew some water and a fish jumping out with a sunshine. And one kid said, “Why is that fish in the sky? Fish don’t fly.”  

And I said, “Oh, he’s jumping out of the water.”

Another kid said, “but a fish can’t stay out of water very long or it will die.”

And I said, “That’s true. But just like when you go swimming, if you go under water you hold your breath, a fish can hold it’s breath for just a moment when it jumps out and then breath again when it goes back under water.”

One kid said, “Yeah, and you can wear goggles under water so you can see.”

This seemed to satisfy them and so I drew a face under the water, to which one said, “Why is there a face under the water?”

I said, “Oh that’s me, swimming with goggles on. Doesn’t that look like me?” 

“No,” she said. You don’t even have a body. 

“I haven’t drawn it yet, “ I replied.

“And why is your mouth like that?” another one asked.

“I’m making a fish face.” I said.

“Why?”

“Because it’s fun!” I defended.

They considered my drawing skeptically for a moment, until one said. “That really doesn’t look like you and you should draw a bathing suit.” And they went back to drawing their own masterpieces. 

And I looked at my juvenile crayon drawing, thinking “Well I’m not an artist.” AND viscerally remembering the feeling in my cheeks of being ashamed and frustrated as a child when I couldn’t make my art look the way I wanted. Of fearing someone would laugh at what I made. 

AND I was also thinking, “Dang. Kindergarteners are mean!”

“Look at all those limiting beliefs and potentially missed opportunities I just created for myself. Simply by focusing on what I am not.” ~Andrea Klunder

037: Permission to stop

“I keep thinking I need to do more– That I need more clients. That I’m going to run out of money. That I need to keep pushing forward until I make it to… where exactly?” ~Andrea Klunder

Letting go of busy…

It has been a BUSY month filled with transitions and new things. 

Of course I knew it would be because our theme for the last few weeks both in The Creative Impostor Facebook Group and in the Chicago Women’s Creative Collective has been Creative Woo-Woo: mystical practices for your creative workflow

I’ve interviewed Intuitive Counselor and Self-Discovery Coach Charlotte Elea about tarot and oracle cards for developing your intuition and Spiritual Embodiment Teacher Monica Martin about using your body’s felt-sense to guide your decision making.

AND I’ve done informal live video interviews with both of them in TheCreative Impostor FB group AND with Naturopath & Holistic Healer Samantha Mant (who will be on the podcast in the coming months) on coordinating your creative cycles with the moon and with feminine cycle. 

Put all of these experiences together with the tarot readings I’ve been incorporating into my almost-daily meditation practice AND some very practical DEEP coaching I’ve been doing with the luminous podcasting guru Elsie Escobar as part of her new e-league mentoring program and…. whew!

“I’m getting all intuitive, introspective, one with the universe, aligned in my purpose – flow – flow – flow all OVER THE PLACE!” ~Andrea Klunder

It’s actually been so intense that I’m alternating between these bursts of manic creative insight where I can’t sleep and I’m up way late into the night — so late I hear the birds chirping in the pre-dawn darkness outside my window  And then these periods of deep sleep without an alarm clock, where I will sleep for 11 hours at a stretch.

And in between all of that are the client deadlines for projects new and old, the smattering of yoga and meditation classes I teach throughout the week, the orientations for the After School Matters podcasting program for high schoolers I’m creating and facilitating starting this summer, hosting and expanding the Chicago Women’s Creative Collective and producing this podcast.

Busy. 

Are you exhausted just listening to this? 

And this leads me back to my coaching with Elsie at the beginning of this month.

I asked her to help me figure out what to do next with The Creative Impostor, where I fit into the podcasting industry, how to leverage my unique gifts, skills and strengths for a sustainable purpose-driven business.

And here’s what she said to me first:

You have the ability to “become what is needed” in any situation— you have the solution for any problem.

BUT what do you want to do?

“I have everything I need. And now I have the luxury to let go of the hustle and spend some time focusing on what I want to do and create and who I want to be for a while.” ~Andrea Klunder

033: How podcasting & meditation saved me…

“I eventually came to a turning point where I realized that from here, anything was possible. I started listening to entrepreneurial podcasts, and financial podcasts, creativity podcasts and “how-to-podcast” podcasts… I was able to shift my view just enough from “no options” to “infinite options!” ~Andrea Klunder

How podcasting and meditation saved me from bankruptcy, depression and impostor syndrome…

I launched my first business in 2008. Infuse Yoga Spa was my vision for an urban oasis of holistic health, wellbeing and community in the middle of the concrete jungle of Chicago. I wrote a business plan, quit my “day job” of 8 years in arts administration and took the leap with confidence, energy, a little bit of savings and a generous loan from my parents and two uncles.

5 years later, in 2013, I locked the door to the beautiful vintage storefront for the last time, dropped the keys through the mail slot, drove the Zipcar packed with my last few personal items halfway to my new apartment and then pulled over underneath the el train tracks to sob uncontrollably, saying good-bye at last to my dream.

What followed was an intense period of mourning and probably the first time I have ever truly experienced depression. I was bankrupt, not eating well, at a loss for what to do next and, in fact, completely uninspired to do much of anything, especially teach yoga. Most days I just wanted to stay under the covers and hide.

One thing I was doing was listening to podcasts. It was a form of escapism that somehow felt more productive and less dismal than watching Netflix. Podcasts like Elsie’s Yoga Class and Tranquility du Jour with Kimberly Wilson helped me meditate on days I really didn’t feel like meditating and imagine the lifestyle I really wanted to create for myself (and had somehow missed the mark on with my yoga business.)

In fact, Tranquility du Jour is the first podcast I ever listened to (back before I even knew what a podcast was.) At the early signs that my business was in trouble, a friend and colleague recommended I check out Kimberly’s website because there was something about her multi-passionate brand that reminded my friend of me. See Kimberly is not just a podcaster, she’s a yoga teacher & studio owner in the DC area. She’s a writer, a fashion designer, a counselor and she leads these incredible retreats all around the world.

I used to listen to her podcast on her website (until I learned about the whole iTunes thing) and eventually, I purchased her Conscious Business e-course along with a 60min private phone coaching. Kimberly gave me a lot of ideas, one of which was to consider starting my own podcast so I could expand my business model outside of the confines of the brick & mortar yoga studio in Chicago and start building a global audience and potential client base. In fact, my meditation teacher, Elesa Commerse, had been giving me similar “get out of the yoga studio box” counsel for months.

But at that time, I was so busy just trying to keep the box afloat… launch a podcast?! Great idea, but not right now.

So what happened next? Listen to Episode 033 and find out!

“Of course, there’s always going to be challenge and risk and failure and now I can finally add to that something that looks like success to me.” ~Andrea Klunder
