Preview – The Art Of Improv And Business



“Improv, in one sense, is being present in this moment with curiosity instead of judgment and being empowered to know that I have the ability to build something different if I don’t like how it is right now.”

Coming up in the next Inspiring Women with Betty Collins podcast, I talk with Andrea Flack-Wetherald, owner of &Beyond.

She also loves mindfulness practice. Combining the fun of improv with the quiet power of mindfulness is the work she does with her clients. Mindful improv, it sounds scary to a lot of people.

In this episode, you’re going to learn the difference between habits and circumstances. And you’re really going to learn that this not just changing you, but changing culture. And about the stories that we develop in our minds about people, or the company we work for, or the culture we live in.

This episode will be in your podcast player Monday morning May 10th, 2021.

Preview – Being Authentic In Business



Coming up in the next episode I speak with Erin Hatzikostas, b Authentic inc Founder.

You do not want to miss this podcast. Look for it in your podcast player Monday March 8th, 2021.

Erin has such energy. She’s just got a totally different way of thinking. But she talks and shares with us all about authenticity.

It’s not transparency, by the way. It’s a strategy. It’s contagious and it’s so needed in corporate America today.

Erin really has a great perspective.

She’s got a book that’s out right now, You Do You(ish). And it expands a very cool acronym, H.U.M.A.N.S.

This was probably one of my favorite interviews. I forgot I was interviewing her!

Defining Success – Does It Have To Be The C-Suite? – Preview



So many people think success is they’ve made it to the C-suite.

The C-suite is not the only success that is out there in your career in business, so I want to talk about that in this episode.

We all have different career goals to achieve success. There’s nothing right or wrong, and success is measured differently by all of us.

Unfortunately, we tend to obsess over our goals and our career. Most of us do. All the career goals and the success you have, whether you’re in the C-suite, or you’re just going to occur in your own world. All of those goals are valid. So, no matter where you are, focus on yours, and stick to yours, and not to others.

Silencing Your Self-Doubt – Preview



“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt” – William Shakespeare

Self-doubt is fed by your inner voice and, of course, is self-inflicted.

If there’s one struggle that I have had in life, it is probably self-doubt. The continual questioning that ends up paralyzing me, which results in me doing nothing and not going forward.

This podcast is very personal, which is probably why it took me a while to write it. It was one of the hardest ones to write.

Finding And Owning Your Own Voice – Preview



Finding and owning your voice. Strengthening your inner confidence.

It’s your identity expressing itself. It’s your personality, and it’s your individual message to the world.

I believe that there is power in that feminine voice, and it’s missing in too many conversations. From the business environment – your office, the marketplace, the boardroom, to politics, and in our homes.

In my next episode, I will be going in depth on the steps to take in finding, and owning, your own voice.

Becoming The Authentic Leader You Envision – Preview



Authentic leadership is really tough to find.

Plus, it’s hard to be an authentic leader.

Authentic leadership works on the principle that leaders can prove their legitimacy, their credibility, by nurturing sincere relationships with whoever they are leading. Notice I did not say “I am the leader, follow me!” It isn’t about the title you finally get. “Get over it. Do as I say.” It really is nurturing sincere relationships.

How do you do that? We go over that in the next episode of Inspiring Women with Betty Collins.  Coming to your podcast player in a couple of weeks.

Stop Networking And Make Connections – Preview



Here’s a short preview of my next podcast.

Networking is about knowing more people.

Something amazing happens when you network and connection happens.

That is the moment of success because….connecting is about knowing people more.

What is your goal when you network? When you make connections?

Frank Agin, the President and Owner of AmSpirit, is just simply the best at networking and connecting. I am so thankful to have him as a guest on this upcoming podcast.
