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.

Today’s guest, like many ambitious women today, pushed herself to the limit and happily wore the busy badge of honor for decades.

Her suicide attempt as a young adult ignited a passion for personal development which led to her owning a nutrition business. Yet, while she made sure other women were taking care of themselves, stress, anxiety, worry, and fatigue were
her constant companions.

She sold her business and took a year-long sabbatical that she calls her “Year of No” and learned how to unwind from over-busy habits and determine why she was pushing herself at a great cost to her own well-being.

She then interviewed other ambitious women about busyness addiction and leadership which led to creating Alchemy of Feminine Leadership™, a framework that redefines ambition and success for lasting and sustainable impact without burnout - teaching women how to prioritize self for a deep enduring contribution to self and to society.

Please join me in welcoming Suzy Carroll.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “To me, leadership is about fostering the full potential of others, which also means fostering your own full potential first.”
  • how being raised by a narcissistic mother shaped her belief that she was “not enough.”
  • her transformation from being a people pleaser into a self-pleaser first.
  • the lessons Suzy learned during her sabbatical “year of no.”
  • how she helps women reduce overwhelm in their lives and step into their worth.
  • her methods for connecting to others, continuing to keep connections strong, and join people together for a common goal.

Today’s guest uses hypnosis and hypnotic communication to help his clients grow their businesses. He used the principles of rapport and modeling to track what top business performers do differently to build several six-figure businesses of his own.

Rather than just hypnotize his clients to become more successful, he helps them de-hypnotize the personal blocks that are holding back their business success.

He is the author of the best-selling book, “Work Smart Business: Lessons Learned from Hypnotizing 250,000 People and Building a Million-Dollar Brand.” He speaks to business people around the world on how they can put his WORK SMART principles and strategies to use. He says, “The process isn’t magic, but the results can be magical.”

Please join me in welcoming Jason Linett.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “The biggest measure of a leader are those who are learning information, putting it to use to get a result, and making it their own. It’s about the integration, customization, and creativity that goes into it.”
  • how he came from a family of entrepreneurs and how that prepared him.
  • how stage hypnosis caught his attention because there were no props and it was all about communication and relationship building between the hypnotist, the volunteers, and the audience.
  • his thoughts on how easy it is to try to be everything to everyone in business but how important it is to niche and even super-niche for maximum impact.
  • how our language patterns can become conversational hypnosis.
  • his habits around networking that involve cross-pollination and sharing generously.
