On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Welcome back to On the Schmooze. Thank you so much for joining me. Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Keiko Zoll, this week you’ll be hearing from me, your host.

Every other week I’ll be offering my take on some aspect of networking and relationship-building. These shorter podcast episodes will include practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you.

This week, to help make networking less scary, I’ve created a simple tool to help you focus your time and get results. Brainstorm + Objective + Organize = BOO! Meeting strangers can be scary. It’s human nature to want to stick with what is familiar to us and stay within our comfort zones. The downside to this instinct? You’ll only know the people you already know and if they can’t help you find a job or identify new clients then you’re at a dead end. If you’re serious about achieving your professional goals you’ll need to get past your fear of meeting strangers.

Today’s guest has spent the last 6 years raising awareness of and creating community for couples dealing with infertility. What started as an anonymous blog chronicling her own journey to parenthood through the wonders of science, has grown into an internationally-recognized powerhouse within the online infertility community.

My guest has become known as a leading infertility and women’s health writer. Her writing and infertility story has appeared in Redbook Magazine, The Huffington Post, Disney Baby, among many other publications.

She has received several awards recognizing her tireless advocacy for both infertility-sensitive legislation and cultural empowerment for infertility patients. Her short film, “What IF: A Portrait of Infertility” received a Best Viral Video award from RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association.

As a consultant, my guest helps her clients craft compelling narratives that ignites conversation and inspires action. She is also Director of Brand Strategy at Fertility Planit and News Writer for Romper.com, a new website for millennial moms.

Today’s guest has experience in the world of fair housing and affordable housing. At the time of this recording, she had been working for the City of Boston since 2004 with ever increasing responsibilities. Her goal was to expand choice in housing for Boston residents. In early 2016, building on that experience and her previous roles in partnership management, marketing, promotions, and conference planning, she took on a Business Development role at Sumu, an innovative start-up working on housing search app.

Taking this leap has also allowed her to pursue her interests in writing and film and video production.  She is a Board member of Women in Film and Video-New England and freelances as a production coordinator and producer for creative and commercial film and video production, including with Good Natured Dog Productions.

Since 2007, she has served as a Founding Board member and Administrator for the Shirley Jackson Awards, which recognizes outstanding achievement in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic.

Please join me in welcoming JoAnn Cox.
