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 is a business strategy coach who wants to live in a world where entrepreneurs work sensible hours, customer service is amazing, and everyone eats cake at yoga class.

She spent 20 years doing visual effects in film and TV – winning an Emmy and two projects she’s worked on have been multi Oscar nominated. At one point her work was on every bus and subway stop in NYC, and plastered all over Times Square.

She’s taken her decades of experience and now teaches others how to get focused and not derailed by the million things screaming for your attention. She does this through one-on-one coaching and online courses, but is best known for the Masterminds she runs that are ridiculously fun and highly effective. She brings her skills from film to create supportive mastermind teams so members work less and earn more.

Her British accent belies her Irish roots. She has lived all over the globe, growing up in Nigeria and Pakistan, and most recently living between London and New York City.

Please join me in welcoming Liz Scully.

In this episode we explore:

  • her definition of leadership: “Leadership is strength, clarity, and kindness.”
  • what working for 20 years in the entertainment industry taught her about leadership and her metaphor that life is like a cocktail party – where sometimes things go terribly wrong.
  • the benefits and joy of being part of a mastermind – getting an “a ha!” moment and then spending time implementing this new idea.
  • the elements that every quality mastermind addresses: mindset, dealing with fear, self-care, goals, and accountability.
  • how asking people about masterminds is a great opening question at events – they know it and share tips or don’t and want to know more.
  • her Christmas networking tip – you’ll have to listen to find out!
