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 storyteller whose career began at age 12 when she scored her first paid writing gig. Her writing career has only gained momentum since, with regular contributions to Inc.Entrepreneur, and Huffington Post.  She is also no stranger to radio and television. Her work has been featured on CNN, ABC, CBC, The New York Times, Reader’s Digest…just to name a few. She is also a keynote speaker, TV personality and host of her own podcast.

I mention all of her success getting visibility through different media channels, because through her course Baby Got Booked, she teaches others how to grab the attention of a busy producer, editor, blogger or podcaster, and make an audience fall in love with you.

So much of what she shares and how she built her business is about relationship building that I had to have her on On the Schmooze. I’ve had the good fortune of meeting her in person so I can also confirm that her approachable and fun personality is who she is off stage as well as on.

Please join me in welcoming Geeta Nadkarni.

In this episode we explore:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Everybody has the ability to lead, everybody is a leader in their own way.”
  • how her parents saw and helped develop her talent at presenting and storytelling.
  • what it means to be “full of yourself” – when it’s no longer about you, it’s about how can you show up for other people.
  • the incredibly powerful story of how Spanx founder Sara Blakely’s belief in her product made it a phenomenon – after years of effort.
  • her “impact filter” that helps her decide whether to move ahead with a project that she wants to take on – to avoid shiny object syndrome.
