Betsy Cerulo, Shake It Off Leadership Shake It Off Leadership-Achieving Success Through the Eyes of Our Labels Who Defines You? You or Others? Can You Choose Your Labels and Use Them to Empower Yourself and Your Business? YES! Are you ready to stop allowing others' perceptions and labels of you limit what you can accomplish? Have you had enough of the outright or subtle undermining of your career or self-esteem by the ways people “categorize” you or the way you categorize yourself? Betsy Cerulo had her fill, and so she stepped up to claim her labels and make them her fuel for greater success! And in her new book Shake It Off Leadership—Achieving Success Through the Eyes of Our Labels, she will gift you with guidance on how she did it…and how it can transform your life and your business! Betsy felt the sting of disempowering external perceptions early. Her mother made no effort to hide she favored the boys in the family over the girls, and that they could have nearly unlimited freedom, but the females had to live according to a specific standard. And then, in college, when she came out, after falling for one of her classmates, she began to experience the sting of unkind and discriminating labels. In business, as she tried to rise as a young executive search professional, she found her way blocked and her salary less simply because she was ”a woman.” But with skill and determination, she built a hugely successful boutique professional staffing and executive search firm. AdNet/AccountNet, Advocates for Workplace Excellence and Equity. But along the way, she decided to throw off the limitations of those labels, embrace those she was proud of, and choose the labels that she wanted to define her! Betsy won't put up with “the nonsense” she hears coming out of the mouth of those who attempt to diminish women, the LGBTQ+ community, and racially diverse people. She challenges them. Instead of suffering the insulting brand of dyke or lesbian with a sneer, she decided to make her sexuality a proud hallmark of her success, attaining the first government 8A certification based on Gender and LGBT discrimination. This allows a company to bid for government contracts with less competition. Then, she went on to co-found the Maryland LGBT Chamber of Commerce and the Maryland LGBT Foundation, building them into robust organizations that attracted many mainstream sponsors. As a woman-owned business, she fought the discrimination of banks that refused loans and found those that would treat her with respect. In this episode, she shares other resources for entrepreneurs looking to become government contractors: - The SBA and SBDC - The APTCA Betsy learned how to shake off the slights, disappointments, and roadblocks in building a successful business—not just the issues related to discrimination, but with all of the gumption, wisdom, and courage it takes to create a thriving enterprise, with quality, happy, engaged staff and curation of clients that are an asset to the business. She's discerned a style of SKAKE IT OFF LEADERSHIP, that will empower any leader with the skills, wisdom, and strength to successfully create or grow a business while insuring balance and personal fulfillment. Each chapter in Shake It Off Leadership provides lessons, new perspectives, and an enriching Shake It Off tip at the end. Betsy's personal story is woven throughout as an inspiration for those who have struggled with the labels that have disempowered them. You will find astute insights on every page. Every business can benefit from a leader who stands in her, his or their strength -- and who can spot and act on strengthening the weaknesses within themselves and their company—just as Betsy Cerulo has done.

Join my five-minute spirit reboot interview with Betsy Cerulo, author of "Shake It Off Leadership; Achieving success through the eyes of our labels," where we discuss how to shake off people's negative perceptions by owning our labels.
Why should we sometimes learn to shake it off? In this episode of Incorporating Superpowers, host Justin Recla and guest Betsy Cerulo talk about the perspective from a new angle. Betsy, an author, wrote the book Shake It Off Leadership-Achieving Success Through the Eyes of our Labels. She advocates for workplace excellence and equality, and serving the community makes her soul alive. After years of being a business coach and executive, she considers herself a voice for people who need proper compensation and workplace recognition. Tune in to know more about workplace diversity and equity and what it means to shake it off!
A last chance to comeback in Minnesota fails as a costly mistake extinguishes the opportunity. Justin Fields looks like he is finally confident, and in some sort of a rhythm with the offense. If the defense can correct their many mistakes in a short week, the Bear must build off of that momentum to come up with a win at home against the Washington Commanders!
This is the second part on PRAYING... and the power of healing. "Thank you, Father for loving me and creating me to be lovable. Help me to overcome these lies. Your almighty power and glory are overwhelming and I bow down at the throne before you. Jesus, that you protect me from wrath by your blood. Lord, light me on fire like your burning ones! Light my soul on fire with your love!" #powerfulpraying #justsayno #iambeloved #jesusheals #traumahealing #biblicaltraumahealing --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/leigh-mackenzie/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/leigh-mackenzie/support

"Sam" McCrary (1913-1991), who was a founding member of The Fairfield Four.The four sisters (now 3 sister) are great in harmonizing. I love the kind of gospel songs that they sing. They are old school but can be new school too. They can sing with and without music. One of the songs that I love to hear the McCrary Sisters sing is “Hold On” from their 2015 album “Let's Go”. There are a lot of other great songs on that album too. What do they have for 2022? They have a new single titled “Run On” and another single titled “Shake It Off”.

This second piece of advice has been helpful for building relationships and being able to use and grow my skill sets. I call this "Shake It Off and Learn." In life, there will be more imperfect situations than perfect ones. When we get tied up in the emotion of a situation so much that it causes us to demonstrate regrettable behaviors, it does nothing to serve us. However, when we give ourselves permission to Shake Off the things that don't serve our learning and growth, we can intentionally look for the learning to be gained from any situation. Sometimes what we "learn" can seem like an insignificant reminder versus something that is inspirational and enlightening. Sometimes we may learn something new that doesn't seem to have good application at the moment. But hold onto that learning, as it may be a key to future understanding or something meant to be shared with others for their benefit and growth. In my experience learning has been around how to do or not do something, processes to follow or revise, personalities to understand and influence , understanding the culture of a group of people, and understanding about myself and my areas for growth and development. So, when something seems to be getting the best of you, Why not try to Shake It Off, and see what can be learned from it to help you move into more of your fullness.

This week's Nose got the walls wet and on fire. The producers of an upcoming biopic about Fidel Castro's exiled daughter, Alina of Cuba, reportedly did extensive heraldry and skull-shape analysis and somehow came to the conclusion that … James Franco should play Castro. The internet doesn't think that's a good idea. (Also: It's not.) And: The Rehearsal is Nathan Fielder's new HBO docu-comedy series. The show “explores the lengths one man will go to reduce the uncertainties of everyday life. With a construction crew, a legion of actors, and seemingly unlimited resources, Fielder allows ordinary people to prepare for life's biggest moments by ‘rehearsing' them in carefully crafted simulations of his own design.” And finally, a podcast-only segment on I Am Groot, Marvel's new Disney+ series of shorts (each episode is three minutes long plus credits and logos) following the adventures of Baby Groot during the period between Guardians of the Galaxy and a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 mid-credits sequence. (I'm not making this up, I swear.) I'd explain why we're doing this special segment, but the reason is very, very dumb.

Gene LeBell Dies: Stuntman, Actor And Wrestling Legend Who Fought Bruce Lee & Chuck Norris Onscreen Was 89 Serena Williams Says Farewell to Tennis On Her Own Terms—And In Her Own Words Bill Russell's No. 6 to be retired across NBA following legend's death last month Why'd That Movie Disappear? Welcome to Streaming's Memory Hole Era If ‘American Pickle' doesn't exist on HBO Max now, did it ever? Or: A new generation realizes that an endless stream of film titles can easily vanish into the online ether. The Great HBO Freak-out of 2022 Was Unwarranted, but Understandable In light of what happened at Warner Bros. Discovery's earnings call, some of the rumors that flew ahead of the event look borderline histrionic—but consumers had good reason to fear for the worst Disney Now Has More Streaming Subscribers Than Netflix, But Makes Less Money From Them The End of Manual Transmission Stick shifts are dying.

Plus, Mindy Kaling has given an interview to Marie Claire, where she discusses the negative response she received when her sitcom, The Mindy Show, first aired in 2012. It goes to show how different the media landscape looked, just a decade ago. And a copyright lawsuit filed against Taylor Swift and her 2014 single Shake It Off has been making news this week, based on two lines in the song's chorus.

Taylor Swift has said she couldn't have copied “Playas Gon' Play” by 3LW when writing the lyrics to her 2014 hit “Shake It Off” because she had never heard of the song or the group. The Tragically Hip is being inducted – again – into Canada's Walk of Fame. The band, which was inducted in 2002 in recognition of its achievements in Arts and Entertainment, will be honoured at this year's gala in the Humanitarianism category. Famous fans and friends of Olivia Newton-John are among those who took to social media Monday to remember the singer and actress, who died Monday at 73. Original Articles by John R.

I'm going to go ahead and give a domestic violence trigger warning to this episode. This week I want to talk a bit about the theory of suppressed or repressed trauma being stored in the body. How this is thought to happen and the belief that practices bringing you back to the body can help rebalance your nervous system after trauma.

We're all taking a deeper dive into what work looks like, and discovering that we can do business differently. There are ways that people can ask the probing questions that may not put somebody on the defensive. It takes confidence to ask questions because if you have someone that's afraid, no matter what the venue is, they're still going to be afraid to ask some questions. With the way the workplace is, we have to take some more risks as leaders. It takes years and a lot of work to develop a great company culture. It is important to handle problems as they arise otherwise they will explode. Commercial break There needed to be more books written by women on leadership on the shelves, whatever shelf it is. If this world is going to change, we have to give the up and coming generations the roadmap. The world is setting itself up where the younger generations are actually at the forefront making change. By writing this book, I wanted to share my journey and let people learn from my mistakes. I also wanted to teach people that when they are looking for their coaches or mentors, not everyone's a good fit. From the very beginning of my professional life, I had amazing men and women who guided me to my success. With Covid-19 pandemic, there was an increased level of focus again with being remote and it expanded a lot of possibilities for us. Sometimes something tragic can shake us all up and shock our potential to see what we're capable of. Miss Crab Apples came out of a Saturday night story to my granddaughter when she was six years old. I love to write for children because when you do that you just get to be in that incredible imagination game which is a great place to be. By putting more books like that out there, our grandkids get to have a chance to see what a good conversation is. Shake it off, be good to yourself, pat yourself on the back, and never ever give up. ………………………………………………… Do you want to be a go to expert that news reporters, anchors and media producers turn to?

“You can SHAKE IT OFF Mom!” Last week my son and I were getting on each other's nerves. Can you relate? He insisted on doing a show, even when I was not feeling it. I am glad we did: https://content.blubrry.com/thedrdeniseshow/recording-1_postproductions_2022-07-13-t10-35-07pm-final-mix_2_.mp3

Today's crossword is an homage to Taylor SWIFT, but even if you can't hum FEARLESS or SHAKEITOFF, fear not - the clues are straightforward (respectively 20A, Like daredevils, informally, and 41A, Get over a minor injury, say) and the crosses gentle. Beyond that, we have to pause in admiration of the inclusion of YOINK, which Mike originally took to be YOIK, as immortalized by Daffy Duck, but the crosses fortunately helped straighten him out.In other news, it's Triplet Tuesday, and this time it's Jean's turn in the hot seat. Will she set the world on fire? Or flame out? You'll need to download, subscribe, listen up, etc., to find out.
Luke 10:1-11After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go on your way. See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and greet no one on the road.Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house!' And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking whatever they provide, for the laborer deserves to be paid. Do not move about from house to house.Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; cure the sick who are there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.' But whenever you enter a town and they do not welcome you, go out into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off in protest against you. Yet know this: the kingdom of God has come near.'“Whoever listens to you listens to me, and whoever rejects you rejects me, and whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.”The seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, in your name even the demons submit to us!” He said to them, “I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing will hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” I learned a new thing this week, thanks to Liv Larson Andrews, the pastor at Salem Lutheran Church, in Spokane, Washington. She wrote about how her yoga instructor has her yoga students literally shake themselves as part of their practice, which seems odd. Shake themselves. Like a full body shake. It seems odd because whenever I've done yoga and when I think about yoga, I think about slow, deliberate, strong and stretching, methodical sort of movements, not what I imagine a full-body shake might be like.But the logic, the rationale, the explanation – one might say, the theology – of this shaking exercise, comes from the notion that mammals, in the wild, if they have survived an attack, often shake their bodies once they have regained their safety because, smarter people than me – including certain yoga instructors, apparently – believe this literal, physical, sometimes violent shaking completes the trauma cycle.(I was going to show a video, but I didn't want to scare the kids. Watching an animal escape an attack like I'm describing might be a little gross and scary for some. But have you ever seen footage of a giraffe, or a gazelle, a zebra, or a wildebeest survive and escape an attack by a lion? Can't you see, or imagine, or remember how they very often, literally shake themselves, when it's over? It's something like a dog after a bath. You can Google it. It's a thing.)And there's a name for it, even, “Therapeutic Tremoring,” because sometimes it looks like a seizure, too … a full-body tremor … like you're as cold as you've ever been; chilled to the bone and unable to get warm again. Whatever the case, the thinking is it helps to release muscular tension, to burn excess adrenaline, and to calm an over-charged nervous system.And it's not just for animals. Maybe you've experienced it or maybe you've seen some people do it when they get, what I will scientifically call the “heebie jeebies,” right? … when we've been scared suddenly, or disgusted and grossed out by something … we feel that shiver up our spine or we do our own full-body shimmy to try to shake off or shake out whatever has disturbed us in the moment.Anyway, while there is a ton of stuff we could wrestle with in this reading from Luke's Gospel this morning – this long litany of marching orders from Jesus to his first faithful followers – I had already been wrestling with this bit where he tells them to wipe the dust from their feet, when I came across this stuff about shaking and trauma, “therapeutic tremoring,” and our natural inclination, if not need, for such behavior and practice in our lives – especially these days.Now, I'm not sure Jesus would have described any of it this way, don't get me wrong. But it resonates with me as a practical and holy way to consider what Jesus is getting at, nonetheless. See in other popular translations of this text, we're told Jesus tells his followers not to “wipe,” like we just heard, but to “SHAKE” the dust from their feet, in protest of those who refuse welcome and receive them.I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that these last few weeks, months, and years, really, have been an exercise in some measure of trauma for people on the planet. I'm not sure we can gauge if things are any worse for us than they have been for previous generations, or that we have it any harder or that we've been any more traumatized – as white, middle-class, people in the United States of America; any more traumatized than so many others have been in our own country or around the world these days or over the course of time, I mean.But it's all relative. And we aren't used to what we've been dealing with lately. Because we are bombarded with however much bad news and anxiety and stress and trauma we can consume thanks to Social Media and by way of 24-Hour news; never mind the many and various ways we suffer and struggle in our own lives more up-close and personally. (Take a moment to close your eyes and think about the litany of things that give you pause or stress, anxiety or fear these days…)That wasn't hard to conjure, was it? That list is long and easy to write, for many of us, isn't it? I've heard it said that our hearts and minds, our brains and nervous systems aren't wired to manage all that the world continues to pile on these days, in the world as we know it. (Pandemics and politics; war in Ukraine, war in Yemen; gun violence and school shootings; we know too many things about too much ugliness in our lives and in this world.)So I wonder if Jesus' invitation to wipe off or shake off the dust of it all is nothing more and nothing less than an exercise in and invitation to faithful self-care. Remember what he said: “whenever you enter a town and they do not welcome you … go out into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off in protest against you.'” It makes me think of that social media meme that's become so popular recently, with all of the political and cultural division in our country … you know the one that says something like, “We don't have to agree on everything in order to be friends.”I understand the sentiment. I get the point. I believe the intent to be good. But I've never seen it posted by someone who feels like they are being oppressed, abused, taken advantage of, or traumatized. The wildebeest or the zebra or the gazelle who has been attacked – even though she escapes – wouldn't post that meme on her Twitter feed after making it back to her herd.So, I also understand that it can't apply in every circumstance. If you're a racist or a bigot or a hateful homophobe – who doesn't want to learn why or how not to be those things – you may not be able to be friends with everyone. We can share communion. We can worship, learn and serve together – and I think that we should try. The Kingdom of God is as near to you as it is to me as it is to “them,” whoever “they” might be – even if I think they're wrong about what that Kingdom looks like.But if you – or the hearts and minds and lives of vulnerable people you care about are not safe in the presence of or by way of the policies, politics and theology someone else endorses – the truth is you can't be “friends” in the fullest sense of that word. We can be kind and cordial with one another – to a point – but there comes a time when even Jesus wiped the dust from his feet in protest of those who refused to receive him. And I believe we're allowed to do that, too – for the sake of our own safety and sanity and well-being in this world.And I hope this is a place where all of that happens – where we are kind and cordial and gracious, of course – but also where we can wipe the dust of this broken world from our feet and shake the trauma and anxiety, the suffering and struggle from our shoes and from our souls, for however long it will last, so that we can head back out there and try again.I hope our confession, when we offer it, and our forgiveness, when we receive it, is a chance to shake off the dust of our own shame and sin – and that which we share as the Body of Christ in the world – so that we can live and move and breathe with an unburdened, liberated, clean slate once again.I hope the water of baptism we're invited to touch as often as we can get our hands on it – changes us all, every day with God's love – and that it's a chance to wipe away the fear and frustration, the sadness and the despair that threatens us so much of the time, these days.And I hope that, somehow, we are a vision of the Kingdom that has come among us – the Kingdom that has come for us – the Kingdom that is meant to be shared by us – for the sake of the world, until we are all friends, bound together by a real, deep, love, care and concern for one another, and by the grace of God – that can't be shaken – and that will redeem us all, in Jesus Christ the Lord.Amen
