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 an award-winning executive with over 30 years of experience. She has climbed the corporate ladder across multiple sectors, including high tech, consumer and nuclear sensors, aerospace, film production, and glass manufacturing.

To say that she had a unique and difficult start in life is a major understatement. At just 18 years old, she fell blindly in love with a pimp and ran away with him. Tragically, most women who are targeted in this way never escape. She not only escaped but thrived.

She wrote about her true-crime experience in her first book, “Never a $7 Whore,” which was a #1 hot new release on Amazon. Her second book, “The Daytime Lives of the Ladies of the Night” details lessons learned from her time spent living with the Ladies of the Night,  And the third book in this four-part series about her life is “Bullets and Bosses Don’t Have Friends,” which shares how to assume leadership with the serious edge you need to succeed in the corporate world.

On her journey from a lady of the night to the lady in the boardroom, she became certified as Professional Engineer, a Six Sigma Black Belt, a Certified Professional Manager, trained in Japan and was inducted into the New York YWCA Academy of Women Leaders. Currently, she is the President and CEO of her own company, Just Once.

Please join me in welcoming Toni Crowe.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is about possibility. It’s about possibility for both the person who is leading and for their team.”
  • how her spouse was the first person to recognize leadership potential in her and how his encouragement helped her step into her power.
  • how a local library with books for one penny gave her the knowledge of life being bigger than the world she was living in, and how books saved her.
  • her experience of falling in love with a pimp and overcoming that, leading her to become an author and a leader in the business world.
  • how the writing process has brought about people in her life.
  • her thoughts on networking and her process for connecting with others.
