We welcome one of our own to Mission Forward this week: inclusivity advocate and graphic designer, Eleni Stamoulis. She joined the Mission Partners team in 2017 and since that time, she has been involved in an extraordinary array of client and partner projects. In brand refreshes and rebrands, website redesigns, and all kinds of mission-critical campaign elements, her voice has become welcome counsel for ensuring that the projects that we take on at Mission Partners are as inclusive and accessible as possible. We talk about Eleni's journey as a designer and the traumatic brain injury that sent her on her path of growth and life-long learning. We talk about the power of design to transform ideas and beliefs. As she says, design isn't just about what's on the page. It's about everything around us that is designed to affect change. We're grateful that Eleni is using design to affect change for good. She is deep into the final stages of her own MFA, where her thesis is focused on the experiences of Black, Brown, and Latinx students in design education. As such, she's currently performing a research project that aims to understand the role race plays in the educational experience of graphic design students in the United States. Are you a design student or educator? Visit EleniStamoulis.com today and submit your response. She promises it won't take more than 10-15 minutes of your time. Click the link to learn more! Along the way, Eleni recommended some fantastic resources we'd like to amplify: The Black Experience in Graphic Design: A Diasporic Anthology of Design Practices & Experiences by Anne H. Berry on Kickstarter — The project has just reached its goal, but the resource will be incredible and we encourage support of the work! extra bold: a feminist, inclusive, non-racist, non-binary field guide for graphic designers — You can get it from the usual places, but buy from your local bookstore if you can!) Design Explorr — “DesignExplorr's goal is to create opportunities that allow underrepresented youth to participate in design activities.” Creative Reaction Lab — “Our mission is to educate, train, and challenge Black and Latinx youth to become leaders in designing healthy and racially equitable communities.”
What up, Doc Squad!How do I land high-ticket clients?That's the number one question that causes uncertainty and overwhelm for most of you women doctors in my community starting or building a coaching business.But in today's episode, I'd like to introduce a reframe...You don't land clients, you create them!Landing clients sounds very passive, like it is something that is out of your control. It sounds like something random that just happens and you didn't have anything to do with it.But that's not it Sis!I truly believe that God is in control of everything and I believe we're co-creators with him in our businesses.So when I say that you create your clients and that it is in your control, what I am submitting to you is that you influence that process.Creating clients can be like a faucet for you, where you turn it on and you get clients, you turn it off and you're not selling to clients at that moment.It is a structured controlled process that is available to you too!In this episode, I discuss:Determining your value.How to communicate your value effectively.Why you should communicate your value.Mentioned in this episode:Episode 103: The Anatomy Of My 60K MonthEpisode 045: Special Unicorn SyndromeMy Instagram********************************************************************Join my FREE private Facebook Group The High-Ticket Doc™| High-Ticket Coaching For Women Doctors by clicking HERE.Want to develop and confidently sell your first high-ticket program?

In this episode of Project Management Office Hours Art García, Cathy Christian, and Curtis Brown join PMO Joe for an enlightening discussion about veterans, project management, and mentorship. One of the themes from the show is a helping hand goes a long way. “Communicating, connecting and mentoring; you're building your network and the person you help today may be the person that helps you tomorrow.”- Art García. Mentorship can be one of the most influential parts to a successful military transition. Creating safe outlets for a new professional can make all the difference for them. A great mentor supplies positive influence, guidance and the direction that the person wants to take. “It's about trying to get people to change their aperture. How can I get this person to open their aperture? Kind of think outside of the box. What are the things that you've done? And when you see the light bulb goes off.” -Curtis Brown Art, Cathy and Curtis provide great leadership to veteran service organizations such as VPMMA, NOVA Job Outreach, PMI, and Onward to Opportunity. “You don't even recognize what you're doing, how helpful and impactful that is to the folks that you're helping. Because to you, it's just a conversation. It's just a natural thing that you're doing. Then when they come back and tell you what an impact it was, you're like, oh! I had no idea.” -Cathy Christian Art García, PMP is a program and project management lead at USAA, Career project manager and Co-Founder for NOVA jobs.

The guys also recap a weekend that saw Josh's puppy problems get a little better and Evan get to socialize for the first time in a long while. There's also a Fact of the Week and a sneaky "sticking it to the man" tidbit in her too.

As a result, people tend to feel broken, inadequate or really afraid. But there is a way to share pleasure and connection with your partner and it doesn't need to be stressful.

**This episode is brought to you by MuteSix, Gorgias, and Attentive** “You're trading on your belief in the story,” says Ginger when asked about the brand story. In part 2, Ginger Zumaeta, CEO and Founder of Zumaeta Group, tells us that there's no hard and fast rule regarding the connection between the founder and the brand.

Greg Galle comes to us this week with an approach to addressing culture that begins with our brains. We live with certain neurological realities, he says, “these are how we learn things, the synaptic connections that are created, and that has sort of trapped us.” In his book Think Wrong, Greg argues that the way we solve problems is broken. The extent to which they're broken depends on our cultural realities. “How do we disrupt culture?” He asks. “Because cultures are self-preserving and that's great if you have a good, healthy culture, but if you're trying to create change, or even trying to improve or strengthen a culture, there will always be a natural resistance.” Greg is the co-founder of strategy firm Solve/Next. As author of the book Think Wrong, he celebrates over 30 years of experience thinking wrong about leadership, planning, and decision-making. His book is used around the world and across all sectors, from global corporations to individuals running local non-profits. This week on the show, we talk to Greg about how we trick our brains, and how we trick our cultures and our communities, into exploring new possibilities and departing from the status quo. We're so grateful to Greg for his participation this week as we all continue to move our Mission Forward.

With map in hand, Kenshi and his retinue of Emerald Magistrates began to explore the tunnels beneath Otosan Uchi. They spent hours carefully navigating its passages and caverns, learning its secrets, and making sure to not draw unwanted attention. The bard and his magistrates found a lone sentry—equipped in the same manner as the warriors who captured Tomo and Akari—seemingly guarding a corridor. Kenshi, with the help of Kitsuki Mayumi, apprehended the guard and began to question him. Who was he, and what was he doing there? At first, the sentry would not give up any information, only dispensing vague threats and telling the samurai that they should flee the city. But even the stoutest of warriors has a tipping point. Mayumi drew her katana and slid the blade slowly across their captive's neck, promising death if the sentry truly had no purpose for living.The guard broke. He professed that he was an agent of the Scorpion clan, and that he and his unit had orders to lie in wait beneath the city until the command was given to strike. Then, they were to secure the Forbidden City and hold it until they were relieved of their station. It was then that the sabateour made the most startling announcement: Shoju and his army were headed toward the capitol that very moment. He was due to arrive tomorrow. Shocked by this information and realizing just how little time there was, Kenshi decided to leave the tunnels and take his captive directly to Ide Makujin.Elsewhere in the caverns, Kaiu Tomo awoke from an unconscious stupor. He found himself in a makeshift cage, chained at the ankle to a nearby rock. Beyond his enclosure, he saw that he was being kept in a cavern chamber which had been turned into some kind of holding room. Across a short walkway, he saw Kuni Akari, unconscious and locked up just as he was. As he tried to move, pain shot through his body. His head and back ached from being beaten unconscious, but more importantly, his hand reeled in agony from the fingers which had been cut unceremonsiouly from his body just hours ago. The bleeding had been stopped, but the reality set in as Tomo realized that his hand would never be whole again.As his head swam and his body reeled in pain, he studied his surroundings. He determined from the rock formations around him that he must be somewhere directly beneath the Imperial Palace. As he came to and his senses started to adjust, he began to hear faint voices coming from a nearby corridor. With a stubborness that only a Crab could muster, Tomo began to taunt the voices. Soon, armed guards like the ones he had seen before entered his holding chamber. Tomo used what little he had to try and leverage information out of the guards, but it was to no avail.Feeling he had exhausted his options, Tomo began to meditate. His pain and his desperation washed away as he entered the flow state, feeling only the life force of the world around him. Communicating with senses that he could not quite identify, he put out a message for help. As he fell into a restful trance, he had a premonition of freedom, and his mind resonated with the sound of buzzing wasps.

A lot of people (although not all!) love working remotely. That means that re-opening workplaces is a minefield in more ways than one - and that means it's an interesting time to be a communicator. From vaccine status, to racism and misogyny, to the ongoing struggle between school hours and work hours, Gini Dietrich is talking about returning to offices (or not!) and how professional communicators are talking about it.
A long time ago, I realized just how powerful branding is. Sure, you and your clients can do it alone. But there's a lot to be said about having an outside expert come alongside you and take it to the next level. On today's episode, I have just such an expert here to tell you how to make branding stand out and bring you and your clients more business. Key Takeaways Proper branding will help your clients see that you offer so much more than what they're initially looking for. It puts you in control and allows you to provide more value. Don't just offer your services to clients. Become their guide to identifying and overcoming the issues that affect their business. About Justin Keller Justin Keller is first and foremost a dad. Justin founded Circlefifty, and he is the author of two business books: Human Always and Rebel Brands. Justin has also written one kid's book, The Red Giraffe That Wanted To Dance. He uses his books, podcasts, business, and the life he lives to help brands and individuals fight for brilliance in everything they do. Justin's methods have helped nonprofits and businesses alike, increase engagement, launch new momentum, and experience massive growth. Become the Expert Guide for Your Clients Throughout this episode, Justin explains how branding is about much more than just saying what you do. It's about creating a perception around the problems that you solve. Communicating this instantly increases your value in a saturated market. Remember that you're in a service that exists to solve your clients' issues. Justin wants you to think of yourself as more than just someone who completes tasks. You're not just providing a commodity. Instead, become a guide who identifies issues and successfully overcomes them. Building Patience and Empathy to Help Others Succeed In both his personal and professional life, Justin prioritizes addressing the needs of other people. This doesn't mean that you should neglect yourself. Rather, it means being patient enough to empathize with others and being able to respond. This outlook allows you to build all sorts of genuine relationships. Justin finds that being there for others not only feeds your soul and improves your community, but it also provides the motivation to continue doing all sorts of good work with less struggle. How are you a guide for your clients instead of just a tripod? What do you do to build genuine relationships in your life and business? Leave a comment on the episode page! In This Episode: The power of branding to establish a clear message [11:00] How to be a guide, not a commodity [16:00] The most common branding mistake that small businesses make [26:25] The value of patience and doing good for others [35:00] Why you should always be your authentic self in your business [43:10] Quotes “The brand is the impression that you make. When you think about it like that, brand has probably never been more important than now.” [15:15] “Design does still matter. But ultimately what you're paying for when you charge more is expertise. You're paying for a guide.” [19:15] “We all exist first to make someone else's life better and, in return, ours is made better.” [35:48] “You can't underestimate the idea of having courage and believing in yourself. That determines what you charge, who you work with, and every aspect of what you build.” [56:03] Links: Join the Grow Your Video Business Facebook Group Core Find Justin Keller online Follow Justin on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Get your free PDF of Rebel Brands: 10 New Rules For Building Brilliant Brands® Circlefifty One Day to Better Procrastinate on Purpose by Rory Vaden Originals by Adam Grant Additional Links: Check out the full show notes page Do you have something to share on this podcast?
