Are you confident in your launch skills? How does your background in project management lend itself to supporting a successful launch? Today I'm talking to Tasha Booth, who is a friend, a peer, and an icon in the space of service providers. We are talking about serving both our clients and serving other service professionals, and what that looks like behind the scenes.  For full show notes, visit theopsauthority.com/podcast/125. Meet Tasha Tasha Booth is an agency owner, coach, and podcaster. She is the Founder & CEO of The Launch Guild - a full service launch support agency working with established coaches and course creators with Course & Podcast Launches. Her team is over 20 members strong and works together to support their clients in being able to focus back onto their zones of genius.  Additionally, she mentors Virtual Support Pros, Launch Managers, & Agency Owners who are passionate and ready to grow their businesses while living life on their own terms, and she is the host of the How She Did That Podcast -- a podcast for Virtual Support Pros to learn business and tech tips. Tasha has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, and Entrepreneur, and she has appeared as a guest speaker for various summits and podcasts including Amy Porterfield's "Online Marketing Made Easy," and Julie Solomon's “The Influencer Podcast.”  Tasha is an Air Force wife to her husband Scott, stepmom to Grace & Meredith, and work from home dog mom to Stanly and Boomer. In her spare time, she watches true crime tv, sings karaoke, and tends to her organic vegetable garden.    Looking back, can you identify project management skills and traits starting in childhood? She sees it in a different way because she has ADHD that wasn't discovered until she was in her 20s Because of that, she had to create systems that worked for her to be able to function Now, she uses that with her visionary clients who are a somewhat scattered to “coral the chaos” and support them and translate to their team A lot of times we don't see our gifts for the gifts that they are because our gifts are often the things that come easiest to us   “When you can unearth those gifts and realize they are true gifts that are marketable, the sky's the limit.”   When you first started out, did project management have a place in your service offerings? Absolutely. She started out as a general VA and quickly transitioned to a tech VA Quickly realized she was in the driver's seat out of necessity because there was so much her clients didn't know She knew that experience is something that comes with time, and she also knew she could figure things out How does project management lead to launch management? She started the Launch Manager Certification because she was providing a lot of launch services in her own agency and noticed that there was a huge difference between the project managers on her team who had an understanding of launches vs. strictly project management skills The ones who understood launches could look at deliverables and articulate to the team what need to be changed The understood launch language She thinks of launching as a specialty within project management Who is the Launch Manager Certification best suited for? For people who are already established in the online space Someone who understands the common launch language Someone who already has the groundwork laid (such as a DOO, Project Manager, OBM, or a Tech VA) and is now ready to specialize Doesn't require that you have done a ton of launch work already, but you need to understand that there will be a steep learning curve if you haven't Launches are often high pressure, and those who thrive off of the pressure cooker environment do well Those with an adventurous spirit who wants to figure things out, and is ok with making the wrong decision Someone who collaborates and communicates well  What are some common mistakes that happen when project managers step in as launch managers? Not managing timelines from the beginning; you need 8 weeks to execute a launch plan Can't allow client to dictate the timeline Not managing expectations of clients based on audience size, engagement, and the groundwork that has already been laid Remember that you are not responsible for the outcome of the launch in terms of revenue; you are there to support your client operationally, and it's up to your client to sell “the thing” The Launch Manager Certification program details 3 month certification program 3 cohorts every year, next one starts in Jan 2022 Doors close in a few weeks, check it out!

Renegade Marketing: 12 Steps to Building Unbeatable B2B Brands by Drew Neisser About the Book: Marketing has become ridiculously complicated, but yours doesn't have to be. With decades of hands-on experience, expert strategist and writer Drew Neisser has witnessed the dramatic evolution of business-to-business marketing. Working alongside giant brands like IBM, as well as start-ups and midsize companies, and interviewing over four hundred top practitioners, Neisser uncovered the top four characteristics that all successful marketers have in common: they are Courageous, Artful, Thoughtful, and Scientific (CATS). These four characteristics form the basis for the framework in Renegade Marketing. Over the years, Neisser created a twelve-step formula to radically simplify B2B marketing and build an unbeatable brand. In his book, he shares the stories of marketing CATS as he gives you the tools to: Walk through a highly refined discovery process that culminates in finding your brand's purpose Define your company's purpose in eight words or fewer Build team support for new marketing initiatives while establishing your unique brand story, voice, and design Assemble effective marketing plans that engage employees, inspire customers, and attract new business Drive perpetual growth by creating a culture with metrics, marketing technology, and experimentation About the Author: Drew Neisser is the founder of Renegade, a strategic boutique for B2B innovators, and CMO Huddles, a membership organization exclusively for B2B CMOs. He's also the host of Renegade Thinkers Unite. Ranked among the top B2B influencers, Drew has been a featured marketing expert on ABC News, CNBC, CBS Radio, and Tony Robbins's podcast, among many others. Besides his long-running Ad Age magazine column, he's contributed articles to FastCompany, Forbes, MediaPost, and CMO.com. Drew's first book, The CMO's Periodic Table: A Renegade's Guide to Marketing, published in 2015, features interviews with sixty-four marketing leaders at top brands, including American Express, Dow, IBM, and SAP. Drew started his advertising career at Wells Rich Greene, and later moved to J. Walter Thompson, and Chiat/Day, and then founded the agency that became Renegade in 1993. And, interesting fact – he's obsessed with (and a bit of an expert) on American founding father Benjamin Franklin!

My guest this week is Heather Maio-Smith, an award-winning interactive storytelling pioneer and technology visionary who brings more than a decade of storytelling leadership to her brand new company, StoryFile. In 2010 Heather was creating an exhibit on intergenerational testimony with Holocaust survivors. She created a 3D prototype and formed a partnership to secure in-depth interviews interactively. Heather had always intended that once the survivors were filmed, that anyone should be able to tell their story and save it for future generations. In 2017, StoryFile was created as an automatic, cloud-based platform that would bring the power of conversational video into everyone's hands. 3:03 – Heather 101 She became an expert in intergenerational testimony and had great conversations with older people. She wanted everyone to be able to tell their story so future generations could actually talk to them and have a conversation. 6:46 – How does StoryFile work? She didn't know if her idea would work. They built a system that was completely automated and online. You record yourself answering a bunch of questions about your life. You can choose from 1,600 questions. 13:02 – Answers for future generations There's no reason nowadays that you can't have in-depth conversations with people you love. Do a StoryFile for a future generation you'll never meet. Some people think it's a bit egotistic to do, but it's not. It's a gift to future generations. 19:05 – Tell your story It's one thing to write down your story or do an audio recording of yourself, but you miss the non-verbal communication. The video element allows you to see the essence of the person. Every generation has gone through really difficult things, but it's what you learn from it and can pass along. 27:27 – How to start StoryFile Go to StoryFile.com and pick how many questions you want to do. You can pick individual questions or by topic and start recording. 28:27 – Get to know you Best concert she ever attended? Madonna in a small venue FEATURED QUOTES We wanted everyone to be able to tell their story this way so future generations could actually talk to them and have a conversation. If my kids could have the ability to talk to my grandfather, that would be amazing. Because then they would understand me and maybe understand themselves a little more. It's one thing to write down your story or do an audio recording of yourself, but you miss the non-verbal communication. CONNECT: https://storyfile.com/ ABOUT HEATHER MAIO-SMITH: Heather Maio-Smith is an award-winning interactive storytelling pioneer and technology visionary who brings over a decade of immersive storytelling leadership to StoryFile.  In 2010, Heather developed the first 3D interactive conversation with Holocaust Survivor Rose Schindler through her creative agency Conscience Display. At the time, she was creating physical video installations at the United Nations, USC, and in Havana, Cuba, but she understood that the future of storytelling lay at the intersection of digital media and ‘natural conversation' and decided to create it. Heather developed a strategic partnership with two global entities with competencies in visual media and technology - USC Shoah Foundation and the Institute for Creative Technologies.  The partnership she led has resulted in the development of a new medium - natural conversation video. Through Heather's leadership, immersive interactive natural conversation video has gone from being a concept to a reality, combining hi-fidelity multi-scopic video with voice commands to deliver commercial grade natural conversation with an individual, whether it's  a life-sized video or on your mobile device, replicating the emotional experience of having a conversation with a person. She developed and pioneered Dimensions in Testimony, a program to interview Holocaust Survivors in volumetric interactive video without that survivor actually being present. Dimensions in Testimony won both the People's Choice Award and the Jury Prize at Sheffield Doc Fest in 2016. She produced and led the project before moving on to found and lead StoryFile. As a leader in content based technology, she has spoken about Natural Conversation at Microsoft (2017), US Holocaust Museum (2017), Dartmouth College (2018), FoST (2018),  SXSW (2019), SXSW (2019), The LA Times Festival of Books (2019), M.I.T. (2020), and AI Summit (2020). Heather's work has been featured in Fast Company, NBC's The Today Show, The New Yorker, Reuters and BBC. She was also featured on 60 Minutes in 2020.

In this special solo episode of Christopher Lochhead - Follow Your Different, I just want to share with you an element of conversation around the most recent Kyle Rittenhouse case. What I wanted to talk about is America's biggest problem when it comes to situations like this. That is, the lack of any authentic dialogue about the matter. Too Much Yelling, Not Enough Listening Regardless on where you come out of the issue, there are some things that wasn't properly address or we didn't hear from at all. What I hoped we'd hear more was thoughtful, nuanced dialogue and conversation. Instead, what we got is what we've been getting a lot of in the United States of late, which is yelling and hardened positions. You're only pro or anti-something. As part of that, whatever one side does, if you're on that side, everything they do is right, and everything the other side does is wrong, and vice versa. I think that's really sad. Because thinking about thinking is the most important kind of thinking. And it's only through dialogue, where human beings can achieve greater levels of understanding. There was no dialogue sparked by this horrible circumstance, horrible situation around what do we as Americans want to do about protests and riots? There wasn't a discussion about that. Nor was there a discussion about self-defense, what do we mean by self-defense? Who decides where there's a line where we can no longer defend ourselves or not? “What I do know is we're not having conversation. We're not having dialogue. There's a lot of yelling, and not a lot of listening.” – Christopher Lochhead Bring Back the Willingness to Listen If you're a long-time listener of this podcast, you know that our mission has always been to celebrate real, authentic dialogue. In our case, dialogue around what it takes to design legendary business and legendary life. In hopes that we can bring back curiosity, we can bring back a willingness to listen, a willingness to co create our lives and ultimately, our culture and country together. I got to tell you: sometimes, particularly of late, it feels like we're losing that war. We might even have lost it completely, and we might never get it back. But I do know that a conversation about authentic dialogue, and why we don't have it, and how we can have more is an important thing to do, even if very few people want to participate in that. Bio Christopher Lochhead is a #1 Apple podcaster and #1 Amazon bestselling co-author of books: Niche Down and Play Bigger. He has been an advisor to over 50 venture-backed startups; a former three-time Silicon Valley public company CMO and an entrepreneur.

Marchese has over 15 years experience developing grassroots marketing and social action campaigns for films to help drive lasting change. Throughout that time, Christie noticed a gap within the entertainment industry -- one that she felt confident that she could fill. Christie recognized that the industry was rapidly changing, and those often left behind to fend for themselves were the small, independent filmmakers who desperately needed to share their stories. Christie was previously recognized as one of Fast Company's Most Creative People 2021 and Business Insider's 30 Most Creative People in Advertising Under 30. Kinema is a social cinema platform that profiles the stories that deserve to be told.

The pandemic diminished the ability to gather in large public spaces; however, the demand for content and community grew. Kinema's mission is to offer filmmakers and communities alike opportunities to experience cinema anywhere. The team is committed to being a resource to filmmakers and distributors by providing a new way of digital distribution, marketing and monetization. 1:09 Christie talks about her company “Kinema”, how she created it, what the company makes, and how it works. 05:36 Christie speaks about how she started her career in developing marketing and social action campaigns for films, how she founded her first company Picture Motion, how she leads it and how she grew up in the business, The story of her old company “Story spaces”, and how she used technology to develop her businesses. 10:29 Why believing in the idea is so important as a first step to succeed, where does Christie get the push and funding to create a new product or start a new business, and how does she find new partners for her company. 14:40 How important is it to get used to handling crisis and how it helps become a successful leader, 17:25 How Christie deals with her partners, she shares some of her stories with her partners, how to find the right partners and how crucial is it to have a good relationship with them, and building strong relationships with your partners. 23:05 How important is it to divide between friendship and partnership and how to set proper expectations from partners and friends, 27:08 How to take advantage of Kinema, what is its benefits, and how to use it properly. 30:45 Christie's advice to women who are aspiring leaders and want to be the leader of their lives.

Sukhinder Singh Cassidy: Choose Possibility Sukhinder Singh Cassidy is a leading technology executive and entrepreneur, board member, and investor with twenty-five years of experience founding and helping to scale companies, including Google, Amazon, and Yodlee. Most recently, she served as president of StubHub, which thrived under her leadership and sold in 2020 right before the pandemic for $4+ billion. She is the founder and chairman of the Boardlist and has been profiled in Fortune, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and The New York Times, among others. She has been named one of Elle's Power Women, one of the Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company, and one of the Top 100 People in the Valley by Business Insider. She is the author of Choose Possibility: Take Risks and Thrive (Even When You Fail)*. In this conversation, Sukhinder and I discuss how to handle a transition in a way that works for both you and the organization you're leaving. We discuss the value of proactive communication and clear timelines — plus some of the hidden costs of transitioning poorly. Finally, we made the invitation to consider transitions in the context of your long-term career goals. Key Points Don't leave before you leave. Putting in maximum effort until you're gone protects your reputation and the impact you've worked to achieve. Beware the cost of lingering. You likely know the right timeframe for your departure — use that to frame your transition. Leave opportunity in your wake. Use remaining time to set the team up for success, provide coaching and mentoring, and make it an easier transition for others. Tie up loose ends before you depart. Leave the team an organization in a place you would want to inherit if you were the new leader coming in. Take small steps, middle steps, and big steps. Avoid fixating on the myth of the single choice. Careers come together with many choices, over time.

In this episode Marcus shares the story of his highly programmed upbringing in Brooklyn, New York, with significant sporting achievements somewhat hiding his challenges in conventional learning environment because he is and was a “learner by doing”. We hear how he was challenged by freedom of the world of university education: dropped out, dived into the world of hip hop and failed to make a go of this as a business. His onward journey demonstrates hard work, a series of steps forward and back, major moments of change as he moved from the world of blue collar waitering to being a junior developer, and developed self-awareness through years of therapy. We hear insights into why soccer could be the sport of the future, its important role in integration and civic pride, and his reasoning for forming a fund that only invested in health care startups in Nashville. His conclusion that you should explore that entrepreneurial itch if you have it so as not to die with regrets is one that will resonate with many. In his book Create and Orchestrate: The Path to Claiming Your Creative Power from an Unlikely Entrepreneur, as well as sharing the learnings from his entrepreneurial journey he sets out a framework of eight core concepts he argues that every entrepreneur needs when building their business. Four internal: Leadership, Finance, Operations, and Growth and four external, Product, Service, Sales and Marketing. They make sense for both a seasoned entrepreneur and are very useful for someone who hasn't yet started out on their journey.

If you're in a leadership role today, you surely didn't get there by accident. You have vision. You're confident. And you're at the ready to offer support and lightning-quick responses. But if you don't effectively communicate these qualities to your people, how will they know you embody them? Frankly, they won't. Despite leaders giving themselves gold stars in communication, only 13% of U.S. employees say their leaders communicate well, according to Gallup research. And that's a colossal problem: 93% of workers surveyed by the Brunswick Group report that “leadership that communicates directly and transparently” is what keeps them on the job, bested only by pay and the ability to move up. The most powerful tool you have as a leader—to inform, engage, and inspire—is your voice, says veteran leadership communications coach Joel Schwartzberg. Yet all too often, our words fall flat; we get caught in our head, fail to truly understand our audience, or simply flub the landing. But it's our words and awareness of their impact that make the difference between simply managing teams and inspiring them to do their best work.    Joel Schwartzberg is a leadership communications coach whose clients include American Express, Blue Cross Blue Shield, State Farm Insurance, the Brennan Center for Justice, and Comedy Central. He is the senior director of strategic and executive communications for a major national nonprofit and previously held senior-level communication and editorial positions with Time Inc., PBS, and Nickelodeon. Schwartzberg's articles on effective communication have appeared in Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, and Toastmaster magazine, and he's a sought-after business and communications podcast guest and conference speaker. He is the author of Get to the Point! Sharpen Your Message and Make Your Words Matter, which Seth Godin calls “a manifesto for giving talks that make a difference,” and The Language of Leadership: How to Engage and Inspire Your Team (Berrett-Koehler Publishers; July 13, 2021), which Kevin Eikenberry says “will make your communication more purposeful, meaningful, and inspirational.” Topics During this interview Joel and I discuss the following topics: Why communicating clearly and effectively is so importantWhere leaders make mistakes with their communication skillsHow to change your approach based on your audienceHow to appear more empathetic and authentic How to effectively communicate in the virtual environmentAdvice on communicating in various situations For the complete show notes, be sure to check out our website: https://movingforwardleadership.com/192

Those hacks will come from my guest Matteo Franceschetti. Matteo defines high performance—having been a professional skier, high-level tennis player, competitive race car driver and practicing lawyer. He didn't get much sleep doing all those things, so he co-founded Eight Sleep and set out to create and advanced sleep improvement device so he, and everyone else, could sleep better and perform better.We can all agree: “Sleep is a pillar, a fundamental pillar for your health,” Matteo says.Eight Sleep tracks biomarkers that measure your sleep quality. Then it uses machine learning to make automatic adjustments to your sleep environment. This helps you optimize your sleep, get the reset and recovery your body needs, and well, wake up feeling better than you have in years. Best of all, you don't actually have to do anything. You just go to sleep, exactly like you did last night, and the technology does all the sleep hacking for you. TIME Magazine named Eight Sleep one of its “Best Inventions” of both 2018 and 2019, and Fast Company listed it as one of the most innovative companies of 2018. They're a sleep hacking company making big inroads into understanding and regulating your body's temperatures while sleeping. This affects your REM sleep the most.“While you are in REM your brain deactivates all the temperature controls in the body,” Matteo explains. “It doesn't let you fall into REM if it's too hot or too cold because you could potentially die. Changing the temperature based on your sleep stages and the different stages of the night is fundamental to maximize your deep and REM stages.”And Eight Sleep has a fix for that.“Based on your sleep stages and based on your biometrics, we adjust your body temperature during the night,” Matteo says. “It's not that we are inventing the wheel. Your body is already changing temperature during the night. It's part of your physiological process. We just enhanced that process to maximize your sleep performance.”And then I wanted to know, “How many hours of sleep per night do you think you can save people, by just changing temperature?” The point isn't necessarily to get less sleep, but it's to live more. Right? If you just got everything you needed and it was as good as what you have today, but you had enough time to do two hours of reading or learning every day or meditating or parenting or whatever else, it's not about working more necessarily. It's just about living more. It's exciting to talk to Matteo because he brings a whole bunch of new biohacking ideas to the table, er bed. He and I get into a bunch of sleep topics during this conversation, including:How you can instantly increase your deep sleep by 40%, starting tonightHow you can reset your energy levels in the morning just by regulating your sleep temperature at nightHow you can compress sleep down to 5-6 hours a night, while actually getting more rest and recoveryWhy sleep consistency matters (and is still the hardest thing for people to do, well, consistently}Why machine learning is the future of personalized healthIf your sleep could use an upgrade, check out this episode for hacks you can implement right away and learn about what's next in sleep technology.

Some people know from an early age that they are environmentalists. Dan Schnitzer certainly did. Inspired by childhood nature walks with his mom, he studied pond water under a microscope. At age 13, he conducted the first of many environmental experiments—for a science fair, he made clean fuel from fruit.After learning about the concept of "poverty traps" in college, Dan realized that lack of energy access is an infrastructure failure—and a massive burden on disadvantaged communities. Approximately two billion people worldwide either don't have energy access or it's unreliable. Without reliable sources of electricity, people are forced to rely on dirty fuel like charcoal and kerosene to generate power, which are dangerous and expensive. The use of these fuels, particularly indoors, leads to devastating health outcomes, including early death from pneumonia, heart disease, and lung cancer.Dan traveled to Haiti in 2008 and worked with communities to learn more about their energy needs. Within a year, his nonprofit, EarthSpark International, was helping to build a different, more reliable kind of infrastructure called microgrids. That was just the beginning of his entrepreneurial journey. Today, SparkMeter sells software that helps utilities in 25 developing countries provide reliable, affordable electric service in rural areas. SparkMeter recently ranked #1 on Fast Company's 10 Most Innovative Energy Companies of 2021. Dan tells Degrees host Yesh Pavlik Slenk that his mother instilled in him an ethos of gratitude and responsibility. She encouraged him to pursue a career helping other people. He wanted to make sure, though, that his service was actually useful. “There's a long history of development working to help people, but in ways that really didn't go well,” he says. “And as the old saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”Dan believes everyone should be invested in helping developing nations access clean, reliable, and  affordable energy. “The climate problem is a global problem,” he says. “The emissions that come from Nigeria into the atmosphere are going to have the same effect on climate change as the emissions here.”Resources mentioned in this episode:IFC: The Dirty Footprint of the Broken GridAdditional resources:Fast Company: The 10 Most Innovative Energy Companies in 2021  WHO: Household Air Pollution and HealthNorthwestern University: Poverty TrapGreentech Media: Sparkmeter Closes 12m to Expand From Metering Minigrids to Analyzing Broken GridsResearchgate: Microgrids for Rural Electrification Dan Schnitzer's 2016 critical review of microgrid practices in rural areas Follow Daniel Schnitzer and SparkMeter:LinkedIn: Daniel Schnitzer, CEO SparkMeterSparkMeter: SparkMeterTwitter: @SparkMeterFollow EDF:Not yet receiving the Degrees newsletter?

Optimize Yourself

"There are two kinds of people in the world - people who are burned out, and people who know they are burned out." - Greg McKeown There is an epidemic of exhaustion and burnout in not only Hollywood but globally across countless industries. The culture of overwork and exploitation specifically in the entertainment industry is beyond toxic at this point, and something needs to change. My theory is that many of the people at the top in Hollywood did not get there because they are always the best at what they do or because they are great leaders. I believe a lot of those who dictate how the industry works got where they are today because they have simply been willing to endure the most abuse, and they are the ones willing to maintain the status quo - i.e., saving money at the expense of saving lives. “The Great Resignation” is evidence that people are fed up with the status quo. The old model of “work longer and harder” is not a tenable model anymore. There are no more hours left in the day to work harder, therefore finding a way to work smarter is the only solution left. Luckily, there is a new model already out there, and my guest today, best selling author Greg McKeown, is here to tell us all about how to live not only an essential but also an effortless life. Greg is a return guest who made his first appearance on the show to talk about his book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less (which I thought so highly of I included it as core curriculum in my Focus Yourself program). His latest book, Effortless: Make it Easier to do What Matters Most, picks up where Essentialism left off. After making his own life "essential" and achieving great success from his book, Greg found that ironically he could no longer even fit just the essential things in his life anymore. He was doing all the right things, but he was doing them the wrong way. And in today's conversation Greg and I discuss how we all can apply his Effortless model to both make our lives easier while also having a positive effect on our work culture as a whole. Want to Hear More Episodes Like This One? » Click here to subscribe and never miss another episode   Here's What You'll Learn: Recap of Essentialism for the uninitiated. How the success of Essentialism led him to a new problem and his new book. How to apply the concept of the three rocks to you life. Why the old way of thinking that working harder is what will get you success is not sustainable anymore. KEY TAKEAWAY:  Ask yourself "how am I making this harder than I need to?" Greg reveals his true feelings and best insights of the culture of Hollywood based on his experience working in a wide variety of industries. Why Greg believes competition against Hollywood is a good thing. How the pandemic has led to more burnout than ever before. Greg's mindset for adapting to the pandemic and how it led to greater success in his career. The pandemic created an experience of involuntary essentialism for many people. An illustration of how the effortless way led to greater success in a race to the South Pole. The importance of knowing your lower bounds and upper bounds of any particular task or endeavor. How I changed my ANW workout routine to make it more effortless and the results I achieved from it. Greg explains the difference between running hard and running fast. Why we should reject the motto: No pain. No gain. How gratitude helped Greg make dealing with his daughter's illness easier. One simple rule for practicing gratitude.

Nancy chats with Ashish Prashar about his time in prison for a non-violent crime, how the prison industrial complex discriminates against BIPOC, and how to move toward prison reform and abolition.When you hear Ashish Prashar's lovely soft spoken British accent, coupled with his intellectual stance on the flawed U.S. prison system, it's really hard to believe he spent an entire year of his life in a dark prison at the young age of 17 for a non-violent crime. Sadly, he's one of thousands of BIPOCs whose lives will forever be impacted by a flawed justice system (minorities rep 80% of those with convictions). Incarceration has a profound effect that reaches far beyond prison itself: Millions of people are needlessly unemployed, underemployed or homeless just because they have a conviction. And did you know more than 75% of jail suicides involve people who had not been convicted of a crime?But today, Ash is a transformational leader, innovator and justice reform activist who prides himself as the first formerly incarcerated individual to rise from reporter to press secretary for high-ranking politicians, to the c-suite of an iconic company (R/GA). Ashish fights the good fight: he's campaigned for bail reform, ending solitary confinement, and the restoration of voting rights. He sits on the boards of Exodus Transitional Community, Getting Out and Staying Out NYC, Just Leadership USA, Leap Confronting Conflict, the Responsible Business Initiative for Justice. He champion's R/GA's second chance hiring programs across its 10+ offices globally. You can also check out his contributed articles to CNN, USA Today, Business Insider, Fast Company – all focused on prison advocacy. Ashish has a lengthy career in politics as Press Secretary to the former Mayor of London, campaign leader for former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, supported President Joe Biden's 2020 US Presidential Campaign, played an integral part of Obama's 2008 US Presidential Campaign, the 2018 Midterms for a variety of Democrat candidates, and much more).Nancy: Website, Instagram, Twitter Welcome to Progressive Opinions of Color (POC), a podcast that creates space for people of color in conversations about economics, politics, and culture.
