TRFE 203: Changing Careers + Starting Again at 35 with Cyndie Spiegel

Season 4Lauren FrontieraComment

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:

”We can do whatever the fuck we want. We just have to be willing to step into that really uncomfortable place that most of us are not willing to go to to learn it. And until we’re willing to go there, we’re never going to get beyond it.”

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Cyndie was 35 years old and had spent the past 15 years working herself into an enviable position in the New York fashion industry when she realized it was no longer the life she wanted. So, she quit her job and left it all behind without knowing what was next. Cyndie’s story is a beautiful reminder that we don’t always have to know what’s next before taking the next step and that we can always start again.

We talk about:

  • how to find out what most fulfills you and what your greatest strengths are
  • how she got started with business coaching and the collective of us
  • developing a beginners mindset and getting comfortable with learning from people much younger than you
  • feeling lonely after making the transition out of the corporate world where all of your friends still are
  • the overwhelm Cyndie was experiencing behind-the-scenes in her business in 2017
  • clearing your schedule for self-care/mental health days
  • the uncomfortableness of growth

TRFE 202: The Refining Process of Slow Growth with Marva Goss

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:

"Everything is not perfect in my business. Sometimes it’s a hot mess express over here and sometimes things are going pretty well. But where you are is OK.”

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

We’ve all been there (maybe you’re there right now). You want growth and you want it now. All the money, all the clients, all the notoriety. And for some, that explosive growth happens soon after starting their business. For others, it doesn’t. And that’s not always a bad thing. In this convo, I sat down with Marva Goss, a brand and content strategist for female creatives, to talk about the slow growth she experienced after launching her business and how when she looks back now, she can see how that was a refining process for her as a business owner.

We talk about:

  • How long it took for her to get her first paying client
  • Why she’s grateful for the slow growth she experienced
  • How she felt during the that period of slow growth
  • Why she stuck with it even when the growth was slow
  • Why she doesn’t share her numbers publicly and why she doesn’t like using that as a marketing tool

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

I’ve been talking about alignment a lot this season. What it is, how I’ve been using it to find flow in my own business, and the results I’ve seen from staying in alignment. I had a magical conversation with a friend the other day who used alignment in her own business. So, if you’ve been wondering how you can implement alignment and flow in your own business while taking action, this convo is for you!
