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 has figured out how to BE the change she wants to be and now she works with organizations to do the same.

She is the founder of Good Enough Now, where she combines her experience as a stand up comic and her fifteen plus years of experience leading diversity trainings. She help groups move from abstract fears to actionable habits that lead teams to want to work together.

She is the author of “Good Enough Now: How Doing the Best We Can With What We Have is Better Than Doing Nothing.” Her book is an innovative and practical guide to ridding yourself of self-doubt, self-limiting beliefs, and habitual excuses.

Referred to as the “Margaret Cho” of Diversity Trainers, she blends politics, humor, identity, and local flair with big city passion and energy through direct, individualized, and interactive conversations. Her workshops, seminars, and keynotes don’t just leave participants invigorated but inspired and motivated to follow through with action to create change.

Please join me in welcoming Jessica Pettitt.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “a great leader understands the space they are in and how to serve those they are around. It isn’t about people who are in front of or behind you, just those who are around you.”
  • how growing up in a family of storytellers and educators has formed her into the successful person she is today.
  • how she has always been a connector by recognizing which people are on the outside, or what concepts are being skirted around, and pulling those people and ideas into the fold.
  • how even through hosting a housewarming party she was able to create a space where her extended community made valuable connections with each other.
  • her thoughts on the difference between direct and subliminal networking, and why subliminal messaging is crucial.
