Emotion is at the heart of everything that we do as humans. As the adage goes and what we are witnessing with modern day Twitter wars, the pen is mightier than the sword. However, using the right words to evoke the right emotions seems more like an art than science. Can technology help us write as well as Kalidasa or the Bard? This is the place where Sharmin Ali is focusing her energies. Sharmin traces her origins to Shantiniketan, the hallowed place of Rabindranath Tagore. Being a Bengali, Sharmin spent the first few years of her professional in high growth environments such as Mu Sigma and Fortune 500 companies in Biz Dev. However, her literary origins and Bengali roots did not go away. Sharmin eventually branched out to build India's Netflix writing as many as 70 scripts on her own. She saw the writing on the wall and sold her scripts to launch Instoried. With Instoried, Sharmin Ali is hoping to change the way people write.

Watch and listen to our conversation here How to help women and men have families, careers, and a life to live A little background: Maura and Christie are both attorneys. Maura describes herself as: “Litigation attorney turned journalist, writer, podcaster, still asking questions.” Christie is an entrepreneur, lawyer, podcaster and author who combines her multi-disciplinary talents with her passion for giving back. Making work life and home life successfully coexist together shouldn't be so hard, but as most of us know, it is. Even after decades of women trying to balance their lives and their careers, very little has changed. Sadly, we're still trying to figure it out. Questions the three of us delved into which affect all of us When we consider the declining birth rate, the later ages at which women are getting married and the limitations of childcare, as well as its cost, we as a society must step back and rethink, What we are doing? What do we value? How do we provide a more balanced life, and why is it even more essential to do it now? Listen in and enjoy.

Hi, I'm Andi Simon. I'm your host and your guide. And as you know, my job is to get you off the brink. We've moved into our 300+ podcast and it truly is an honor to celebrate with you. Every time we have a new one, we get lots of people across the globe coming to us asking for more. How do I get you off the brink? How do I help you soar? Well, I do that by letting you listen to people who are doing just that. They help you see, feel and think in new ways so you can add some tools into your portfolio. The world is going through a great transformation. So today, I bring you two amazing women. I have Maura Carlin and Christie Dericco. I met them through a mutual friend who then introduced me and I was absolutely honored to be on their podcast, The Balance Dilemma. This was a terrific in-person WVOX recording of a podcast. And today we're going to talk a little bit about podcasting. Actually a lot about podcasting, because I do them with great pleasure. I haven't monetized it. I don't want to, I don't want have advertisers. I just want great people to help you see, feel and think in new ways. So today, let me tell you a little bit about these two wonderful women. And then they'll tell you about their own journey. But listen carefully to their own experiences. There's something there for you, each of you, to begin to understand how in our life's journey, we continue to soar only if we get off the brink. So here we go. I have Maura Carlin here, who spent over 15 years as a litigator at law firms. Now remember, I could have been an attorney or an anthropologist. But it was my husband who said to me, "Be an anthropologist and I'll be here for you," and he doesn't mind my telling you that because it was 55 years ago and I am still an anthropologist. But she started as a litigator while raising her family and left law and focused on journalism, working as a producer and host on LMC media's news programming. So this is an interesting blend here. Her natural talent and live on-air interviews was on display weekly during roundtable discussions with elected officials, newsmakers and more. She received a BA from Cornell and a JD with honors from George Washington. But she is really on another part of her own journey. Now Christie Derrico grew up in a world encouraged by female entrepreneurs and she and I love to share stories about those female entrepreneurs. I often thought I should write a book called What I Learned On My Grandmother's Knee because it was my grandmother who taught me all about how to count money at the end of the day. It was so interesting, beginning with Christie's grandmother and continuing to her mother, a tech entrepreneur. She established her law practice in 1998 and tailored her firm to meet her community and family needs. She lives in Westchester. Maura has three sons, and Christie has four children. They are truly the epitome of "the balance dilemma." Thank you for joining me today. I'll start with Christie. What's your journey? And then I'll get to Maura and then we'll go deep into what has podcasting taught us and what we're trying to do with it. Christie, how about yourself? Christie Derrico: Well, Andi, like many people, I was inspired by reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I knew that I wanted to be a lawyer from freshman year of high school when that is usually assigned. And I went right from college to law school, and I was a college athlete. And then I went to compete in law school. As you know, more than I can attest, law school is not an easy feat. Each level you go up in your education, it's harder and harder. But I have loved being an attorney. And I've handled litigation, handling many cases, criminal and civil. And I also established a local practice where I got to connect with people in the community. And that's one of my favorite things. I'm not very good at tracking my pro bono hours because there are just so many of them. If someone walks in with a problem, I'm there to help even if sometimes they can't pay what would be the customary rate. So I met Maura on a show a few years ago. And we just struck up a friendship and started a conversation that became The Balance Dilemma and it had a launch in this pandemic where many people had an opportunity to pivot and try new things. And that's our story. Andi Simon: What I love about it, you must know Adam Grant's book, Give and Take. Givers just really are essential to the beauty and joy of our society. And as you said about your pro bono, givers, you know, it's sort of like, How can I help? As opposed to, How can you pay me? And that is a real mark of a woman I want to have on my podcast. Maura, what about you? Maura Carlin: You know, it's funny, I hadn't even realized how similar Christie and I were in those beginning years because I too wanted to be a lawyer after reading To Kill a Mockingbird in eighth or ninth grade. And I did not come from a family of lawyers or business people, for that matter. My father was an artist. And my mother was a teacher, and both grew up poor. And I didn't want to do what they did. And I wanted to be a lawyer. So I went to college. I too, was a college athlete for a couple of years, and went straight to law school also. And during law school, I really didn't know much about the practice of law as it turned out, and ended up going to a big firm in New York City, and started my law career that way. And then along the way, like two intense career couples with children, couldn't really make it work very well. And there were things going on at home. And I went home thinking it was temporary. And we then actually had a third kid, and I got involved in local journalism, which is something I had always been interested in. I did radio in college, and I really pursued that while I was home. I needed flexibility, I needed to be around. So there we have it. And Christie and I met on the set of this new show, which was a combination of news and a discussion roundtable. And we hit it off right away talking about the struggle. Andi Simon: The struggle has accelerated during the pandemic. It was there before, people talked about work-life balance, and I used to say, Why is work not life? I couldn't quite figure out what this balance was that we were trying to get. But it was always about women in that work-life balance. And it is an interesting time for us to take a look at how women have creatively solved an unexpected challenge. And now we're trying to figure out how the next challenge is going to put more strain or opportunities for creative ideas to come forth, as people are being asked to come back to the workplace. And I'm hearing this constant recurring theme: Well, you knew before the pandemic, to work at home was a gift you gave me. It was part of my benefits. During the pandemic, you gave me a day to figure out how to do it. And now you want me to come back to the office. And some folks are going back in the office and sitting on zoom in the office because their colleagues are still removed. We haven't figured this out. So go ahead. Christie Derrico: So Maura and I, the three of us, have used the same word: flexibility. So adding to my bio, I had a formula for flexibility from having a mother and a grandmother who were working mothers. And I learned things, and things have been tweaked through the generations. I have my mother's sisters who still run the family business and they have children. And so I had a benefit of things that many women don't: I have rules. I try to keep things hyperlocal like Maura. I'm very involved in the community. So if something falls apart, you're a known entity and somebody can swoop in and drive your kid home or something like that. But what really brought Maura and I together was an article that was at that time, 30 years old: Confessions of a Superwoman. Maura why don't you tell Andi about how this spawned our project? Maura Carlin: This is actually a funny story. Your parents dump everything in your attic when you have a house to get you out of theirs. So at that time I was finally hitting the boxes and I found this article from December 1980. I don't know where or how I got it, but I clearly didn't read it. And this woman was trying to do it. And this was what really hit me. She was trying to have this high flying career and she was a prominent scientist. And she had a child and she couldn't make it work. And what really struck me and what Christie and I talked about 30 years later, was very little had changed, and even more so, we were speaking about it in the same terms and that was just unbelievable and kind of horrifying at the same time. Christie Derrico: And I will just add to that, that in the pandemic, even leading up to it, progress has been with fits and starts. And we've seen in our community, I think there are less day cares here than when I moved here in the late 90s. Why is that? And how can we move forward unless we address the elephant in the room—childcare—and other issues that help women stay in the workforce. And our project, The Balance Dilemma, has been a super interesting social science, so to speak, analysis of all the machinations of this work-life balance. What has been most interesting to me is that our guests have been entrepreneurs, re-inventors, creators, executives, parents, partners. We have had fine artists, other types of artists, writers, all people telling the story, not just women. There are men too of how they have made a life for their families and themselves and keeping their identity and making livings and things like that. It's been absolutely fascinating. Andi Simon: I'm curious, maybe you can provide perspective on this. How do we make changes, because to your point, there's less childcare, there are fewer childcare workers. I didn't have childcare, I had to hire a nanny. I remember my husband and I navigating the complex waters of who was going to work on which days, and I worked Wednesdays and Saturdays at the university, so he could take care of the kids on Saturdays. There was always navigating. But on the other hand, we never really thought back and said, What did we do here? This was sort of just how we got it done. But how do we make the changes that are going to be necessary to create something we're calling a work-life balance or something? I'm not quite sure that vision of what we're going toward, and I'm not sure how to help us get there. Maura Carlin: I think we need to figure out the childcare piece of it, as Christie was saying. Someone has to be there at some time, whether it's a parent, or another family member, or someone you hire. I don't see another solution. But it's something that keeps getting ignored. And one of the things on the balance limb is, interestingly, we don't talk politics, but this is the one policy area where we kind of have to go into it and see how different people have handled it. And it always seems, and this is where my husband and I actually had a problem because it comes back to this: someone seems to have some flexibility. You know, even our last guest, who was the lead parent, she from the very beginning was able to work from home long before work from home was a thing. And that allowed her to be around for the children. She also hired someone that you could delegate to, but she had the flexibility. And I don't know how you do it otherwise. Why are children the afterthought instead of the thought in our society? Christie, do you have perspective? Christie Derrico: Absolutely, I mean, we've had some common links with Frank Schaeffer. I found his book, Fall in Love, Have Children, Stay Put, Save the Planet, Be Happy. It's a big, big, long title. But I found some of the things, I'm not saying Frank and I agreed on everything, but it was refreshing that he was discussing it and putting it out there. And we were discussing just this weekend with my mother when she was finishing her college degree and she was at community college, there was a childcare facility. And I remember being there. That didn't mean I was there 7-to-7, but in the time that she had to take some classes, I could go there. I wonder how many colleges have childcare facilities these days? I don't think many. And it has made it an afterthought. But childcare is just one component of it. The thing that Maura and I have touched upon is planning. Young people, young women, young men, don't often think about, How do I want my life to look 20 years from now? They kind of spontaneously go into things that they like without really thinking, Oh, wait, is this going to be the career that gives me the best work-life balance? And Maura and I were not fond of the book...what was the name of it, Maura? It had a Wall Street exec in London and it was so depressing that she would come home at night and couldn't stand to see her husband. She would buy store-bought pies and distress them to bring them into school for the school play. Like it was such a Debbie Downer of a working woman. I couldn't stand to read the book, not that it wasn't well written or entertaining, it just hit a nerve with me. So how can we make this, as you say, something that there is some forethought, or there is some flexibility. I think the change in the marketplace in the economy is allowing people in general to change careers easier. You're not staying in one place. So we have to be open to, Maybe I'm going to shift to this, maybe I won't earn as much money, but I'm in it. And maybe I need to be there for four years, and then it could shift again. So hopefully these changes that were coming out of this pandemic can facilitate that flexibility that did not used to exist. I also think that the flexibility is coming from employers. If you ask for it, because of the pandemic, allowing people to work from home or understanding that people do have other people to watch over. And it's not just children, it's their elderly, elderly families as well, which is also huge. Andi Simon: Let's think big. Frank Schaeffer was on the podcast and I loved his ideas. And I said, So why is it so hard for employers to realize that if they opened up a child-friendly culture, they could attract people who would not only come and want to come and stay, but see them aligned with their own values? Is that such a foreign idea? As we're talking about it, and he and I talked about it, I said, Frank, this isn't so hard, just open up the gap. My daughter worked for The Gap. The Gap had a daycare where you can bring them in at three months. And they did it. So why is this such a mystery? And why do they fight it? Well, you don't have to go into politics and figure out why society and government doesn't. But how many businesses could do it tomorrow? Christie Derrico: Well, I think we have to look at successful examples. So we're lawyers, and Maura and I love to research. So I am a fact-, evidence-based person. So we can have a theory and it sounds great, but if I can't find the data to support that, even if it's a good formula, I'm not going to be behind it. And I won't bore you, Maura knows, I've gone down the rabbit hole of some of these issues. And we have a running Google document with our research that I find absolutely fascinating on the issues of family and work. But we have to do things here that have been proven to be successful. The evidence just shows that if you have flexibility, women do stay in the jobs longer. But we have to be in agreement that there's some professions that you just can't bring your kid to work. So maybe this is why I think it needs to be a broader societal solution. And another thing that we found is, it's a lot easier to achieve flexibility when you're at the top of your game. If you're having to do this at the beginning of your career, before you've had the chance to do internships and put in long hours and prove yourself, it is a lot harder. So these are the discussions that we have to have and stop kicking the can down the road. Andi Simon: Well, is that why the birth rate in this country is declining and declining at a very high rate and marriage rate is declining. And people aren't getting married till they're older. They are having kids at high risk levels and 40% of the kids are born to single parents and not to the guys. And so now you have an interesting demographic. Now, it's telling us something to your point, How can we not plan ahead? Well, we are planning ahead, sort of, which is, I'm not going to get married, we live together, I've done my savings. I think that the generation that's coming is so different from the Boomers and even different from Gen X and Gen Y somewhat. But they see this and they're beginning to talk about the changes they can bring. And I'm hoping that they can visualize something that addresses the balance dilemma. Christie Derrico: We have discussed this quite a bit. Our oldest children are the same age and they're in a similar line of work. But we can't answer whether these are for social scientists to study but I was curious. I did read the book. It's a dialogue with the Boomer and the Millennial. And it did open my eyes to see some of the reasons why some of the things you are talking about exist. We can't sit there and say, Well, back in my day we did it this way. There's a reason they feel insecurity. They went through some national crises, the 2008 meltdown, 911. These are part of the reasons that they feel they need huge security before they go on to that next step, aside from the socio expectations and living together and things like that. So I think that we have to look at them, address them, and try to give support, otherwise this is going to keep trending and we're not alone. All developed countries have low birth rates, but some have been more successful than others. And I think when we say fact- or evidence-based, that's what we need to look at: How do they do it in the countries where it's worked? And how can we have takeaways from those examples? Maura Carlin: Well, I actually don't 100% agree with Christie in terms of the age groups just because looking at them, I don't think that our older children fall into that. And it may be because I think they're considered young millennials, as opposed to the older millennials. So at least for my son, I don't think he was affected by those things the way some of the older ones were. I also think what they've seen is, how hard it is. I don't think it's just because of external things like crashes and, you know, real big crises, like 911. I think that they've seen their parents trying to figure out how to do this. And my eldest was keenly aware of the decision that I made, that someone needed to be there. And there, they haven't seen a solution. Andi Simon: Let me shift the focus aspect. Men. I'm married to a fantastic guy who went into his own business. When I was an executive at a bank, and I'm traveling up to Buffalo, and he's taking care of the kids, not that he's not employed, working and building his own business. But without Mr. Mom, it would have been more challenging. And we always had nannies, but they weren't the same. My kids' relationship to Mr. Mom is fantastic. And I think that's because he did become like a mom. And he was the guy who made sure they had a driver to pick them up and take them. And he was the one who picked them up and took them out for dinner. And we made it work. And they are both professional women doing the same. How are the men handling the roles they play? Are they shifting? Are they reinventing what masculine means? Are they good at staying at home? Moms: I had some executive coaching clients where the guys were sitting on the couch, and the kids were crying, and they were on the phone with me, on Zoom. And they said, How do I deal with this certain child who's a husband and two children who are children? Christie Derrico: We've had two guests, and we've had a number of men, but we've had two guests, for sure, men who did that. One in particular. And he really was. He liked to be called Mr. Dad, as he told us. His wife is a very prominent orthopedic surgeon, and he took over the homefront. And that was in fact the title of our episode. It was a choice he made, he was a lawyer also. And he was happy with having done that. And the kids grew up, they're happy. And they probably do, according to him, give a hard time to mom sometimes for that. Another one was a teacher, a journalist, who flew all over the world, and was never around. And ultimately decided that he would step back from that and take things that kept him around more. So I mean, they are starting to make those kinds of decisions. But what it's showing us is not that two people can have these high-flying careers at the same time, but rather that somebody has to step back, and it almost doesn't matter who it is. Someone has to step back. Go ahead, step back at home. So the other guest we had was a teacher. And he gave us an insight on paternity leave. And what he told us, one question we had had was when men take paternity leave, what are the stats? Are they home while the wives are home just giving a hand or they really, you know, coming in and staying home with the child alone, because obviously that's a big difference. And Steph explained, as did another guest of ours, a female guest, that they staggered the paternity leave so that someone who was a family member could be home with a newborn, and they could stretch out the time before they needed to hire a caregiver or bring them to a daycare. This is where analysis is important to understand how these families are cobbling it together. But as I'm hearing it, Andi, your perspective, you know, your voice here is men and how they're handling the situation. Women, we have found, also do something called gatekeeping. They're used to running the house, they say how the laundry is folded, dinner, what's prepared. We have to let go of some of those, our anal habits, and I'm speaking for myself, and just allow someone else. My husband did the shopping yesterday. I have to stop thinking in my head, all the things he forgot, or all the things that he bought that I don't like or don't usually buy. It's okay. And if he decides to make a meal during the week, I've got to eat it. I'm sure it's gonna be healthy. And I can't be the gatekeeper, which will be which penalizes me at the end of the day, if I can't delegate, if I can't accept that my children put their laundry away 60% perfect and some clean stuff goes back in the laundry bin or whatever they do, or dirty into the drawers. It's okay. And that's part of this discussion that we have to take up, maybe a little less perfect because we will be liberated if we can do that. Now we're gonna start sharing. Andi Simon: Your evidence is also grounded in a history where when the men came back from the war, the women who were doing just fine working were put back into their home. And welcome to the suburbs where they had their home. And I've met men who have wanted to sell the home, only to find out that it was a castle that the woman had controlled and built, and she was not going to sell that home. He thought it was a house. And she said, I'm not selling this, I built it. It was her career in a complementary fashion. Their identity is connected to their job, which was to care for the home. And I met another woman whose husband was an accountant, and she had dinner for him every night, the same time, when he came home. I'm going to think of it as theater, they knew those roles really well. They could play them in a heartbeat. Could they change roles and play a new one? Oh, it was terrifying. The thought of, How will I do this? So there's so much complexity into something that on the tip of our tongue says, But of course you can. And I'm not sure it's that easy. Maura Carlin: Something I don't think we talk about enough is the work demands and how they've changed over the generations. No jobs or few jobs are nine to five anymore, or even less than that. And I'll just tell you that my mother was a teacher, she was still home in the afternoon. My father, while he wasn't a businessman, actually negotiated for shorter hours and did freelance on the side. And he was home on Fridays. But even when he worked full time in the city, it wasn't the same kind of hours that we are expected to work now. And you know, that makes it harder. For one, to deal with the children, but it's harder to get childcare for those who want to work 9-7 or 7-9. So that's another piece that I don't think we talk about enough. Christie Derrico: I'm sorry, the entrepreneurial solution. That's, I don't advocate any 9-9. No. And believe me, I work hard. But a lot of my work and my husband's work, we do bring it home. What I was going to say, before we did mention Confessions of a Superwoman. But another great article is, Why I Want a Wife, which I had to write an essay on in high school. One of my teachers had me write an essay and it has nothing to do with, you know, partners, sexual partners. It's a support system. And this hidden workload. Running a house is laborious if you are cleaning in COVID. So many people couldn't have their cleaning help come in and they realized, this is really tough work. And there's a lot more I think that can go into parenting than just, you know, the ministerial making the sausage, as they call it. I mean, there are issues that come up with children, or at least in some families, that can't be addressed by other people. Andi Simon: Yep, they need their parents. Now that leads to the role of parents. Because, you know, we started the conversation: Has our society put on the side burner the child? And it worries me because rather than the child being the foremost most important thing that we should be working for, that we should be developing society around, it's almost a sidebar, and as Frank was discovering by taking care of his grandchild, this is exciting. It's wonderful. It's exhilarating. Why are we all built around our children? So as you're doing your research, why aren't we all built around the children? What is it in our American society where children are hard, both wonderful, but also challenging. How do we get our values on that stuff? Christie Derrico: The word helicoptering has come up. And in the course of our research, the UN study on birth rates has found that over-parenting has contributed to the lower birth rates, the expectations, and truthfully, I think children are less independent. The days of "just be home at six" are gone. They're very orchestrated with lots of activities. And a lot of parents' involvement is required driving. Even if you hire someone to drive, you have to be careful that it has to be somebody who's very skilled with your precious cargo. But that is a part of this discussion. And now we found again, with the pandemic, with the schools closed, a huge bulk of the support system that parents had disappeared overnight. And not only did you have them home, you are expected to do their schooling in front of a computer. But I will say that from the guests we've spoken to and our personal experiences, I actually don't think people have put the parenting on the backburner. I think that they're expecting to do it all. And they're expecting to do parenting at a much higher level than at least my parents did. Some of it's from society, and some of it is internal. Yeah, and some of it is the kids. Andi Simon: You're raising some interesting questions about society because I remember that I was pretty free and I had a bike, and I could ride my bike after school over to Lord and Taylor's and I had my own allowance. I could spend it however, I didn't have to explain much of anything. We went outside onto the street and played kickball, whoever was around. I still know my next-door neighbor. And Bobby and I laugh sometimes how free we were to be, and to learn through that becoming. But today, everything is different. And if you don't have them in lacrosse, and then soccer and then rugby, then they hang around with nothing to do because nobody's outside hanging out playing kickball. So you're caught between the two. So let's assume that's just going to be our society for a while. As you look forward to coming out of the pandemic, any thoughts for the women who are willing to look for that balance dilemma and somehow address it in some fashion because the businesses are full of a balance dilemma. Maura Carlin: I think it's going to have to be flexible. And it's going to have to be flexibility coming from the employers. The problem that I see, and I think about this all the time is, it's one thing to be flexible. But if the workload doesn't change, it's very hard. And I'm not talking about those who allow the workload to fill as many hours as you have. But there are things that just can't be flexible. I tried it at one point. After having kids, if the judge needed me to be in court, I had to be in court. And it really didn't matter whether it wasn't my day, or I had a parent-teacher conference. So, you know, there's a society piece in control. And those are two good insights. Christie Derrico: Well, I have managed to make my career flexible. And I have been before judges and I can remember a couple of tough experiences. I did have one story. My husband cut his finger one morning, and all I had was a Mickey Mouse or princess Band-Aid. And I said, "This is it. You're gonna have to go to court with this." So he puts it on and he goes, "This is great. The jury is gonna love this. They'll know I'm a dad." And I walked out and I said, "Ah, if I had walked in with the Mickey Mouse Band-Aid, I think that they would have thought, She's a terrible mom. She can't even get a Band-Aid. See the symbolism? Isn't it the same Band-Aid? In any event, this comes back to the issue of change. You know, when deciding careers and which position, the thing that we have addressed on our show are pivots, divots, pitfalls, curveballs...they happen, and how do you handle it. Or if you did decide to stay home for 10 years for great reasons, we have to stop thinking of parenting as pure drudgery. It's the most wonderful time and you only get that one chance. So if you decide to stay home, what happens? It takes a lot of courage. And we have featured many guests who have done return-ships. One woman was like a 40-year-old intern. And we didn't get to address this in one of our recent shows, but it was on my mind. She said that she felt that her managers could turn to her and talk about business problems because she was the only adult in the room, or, you know, a senior adult, not somebody who was 22 years old and didn't even know where to put the stamp on an envelope. So there are aspects, and now we can look at different careers, see where we might fit in best and aim for that. It probably takes us a couple years to reenter. But looking at these pivots, I think you have to just build yourself up and do it. Andi Simon: It's interesting listening to you because I hope those who are listening to us begin to think to themselves, How do we begin to change our attitudes or values, our minds? I did a workshop for the Petroleum Association in Pennsylvania in June last year, and they're all struggling without drivers. I said, Have you thought of hiring women? And they looked at me. I said, Well, listen, what is wrong with having drivers from 10-3? And let them do it when they drop the kids off at the schoolbus and pick them up after? And they looked at me. I said, You're short, you know, you have a challenge. And how can you then compliment them differently? How do you start to think about it from the eyes of what's possible? Because they're all sitting there waiting for jobs. And you simply say, Well, that's not our job. Why? Christie Derrico: These are the discussions we need to have because benefits are tied to employment. So if you have an employee, and they have a benefits package, it's harder to rationalize what is part time. Does a person want to take that on and have no benefits? So those are the solutions and the discussions we need to have. So we can have people that just can't commit to 40 hours a week, or 38-42 hours a week. And there are places for them. The biggest thing though when you return to the workforce is your family and getting them to adapt to loading the dishwasher, doing their own laundry, picking up a night to cook something. This is part of the cooperation. Andi Simon: You know, as a conductor of the family orchestra, everyone had an instrument to play. And if you conducted it well, they enjoyed it, it was an opportunity to shine as opposed to a penalty box because they were trialed. We can talk about how I trained my family, because part of it was to give them the confidence that they could have the opportunity to learn the training, and not to do and to be them. I was the enabler, the facilitator, the lover, the hugger, but not the "I'll take charge, you really messed it up" person. And that requires maturity on our part, to see this as a conductor might, where they aren't all playing their instruments yet, but nobody's trained them to play them. And so the metaphor that works for me might be something to share as you're thinking about them. I do have two thoughts to talk about. What is self-care? We have a 30-day challenge, actually a 60-day challenge, for a group of women presidents down in Nashville, it's going on now. And it's called Time to Take Care of You. And they're all stressed out. But the research is extraordinary that self-care can reduce stress. And what's happened is that for many successful women, they think it's guilty to take care of themselves. What does that mean, anything from having a cup of coffee on their porch, to working out, to setting aside time on their calendar for quiet time, a quiet walk, to go and have a hobby that they can do and how to program it so that it's part of their day. What are you seeing in terms of self-care, because this is our third and I'm going to be doing these as often as I can because everyone who gets into them doesn't want it to stop. Taking care of themselves is something to overcome, called guilt. And then when they do it, they go, "Oh, this makes me feel like I'm valued. I'm worth something." What do you see? Maura, do you want to start? Maura Carlin: Well, I mean, personally, I'm one of those people who needs to exercise. I need to move. Not everyone feels that way. I think the problem is finding the time. It's very hard to set aside that time. And Christie and I do talk about that you need to have friends. If that's important to you, you need to get exercise for health reasons. But for some people, it's sort of like what energizes them. I think you need time to yourself. And I will tell you that I have started doing a gratitude compassion class that I'm failing at miserably. But that's okay. And the big part of it is being kind to yourself. Yes. And I think that's what we all need more of. Andi Simon: Well, I find that the challenge is just fascinating. Because once they get into it, it takes a day or two or three, and then all of a sudden, they don't want to stop it. And it has a gratitude part at the end and the wall of wins with a high-fiving each other. Christie, do you find people with self-care as the afterthought also, because without it, you can't be happy? Christie Derrico: Well, in the evolution of my family, my grandmother unfortunately passed away before she was 60. And I feel that she nearly worked herself to death. She did have an illness, but she was not good at the self-care aspect of it. And she had the biggest heart. And I think of her all the time in terms of the lessons as a business owner, and a mother. And my mother brought that to the table to say, You got to have sports, you have to have friends. So it's something that's been part of my life. I get up very early to do my exercise, which sometimes can be, you know, exhausting, but it's maybe you do it three days a week, and not five, you know, you find a way to accommodate it. But in talking about pivots and trying new things, I went back to school, and I am almost halfway through a Masters in English. And I see our podcast as something that Maura and I did. That was a personal hobby that turned into something. We learned new things. And we had to make room for this. I mean, Maura edits the audio for our shows, I do the newsletter and the graphics. I can't even believe I've learned how to do that. I think it's really important to keep learning new things, especially with all the new technology. And it can be very frustrating. But I think actually keeping up with it is really important. From a mental standpoint, and to not feel like the world has passed. Andi Simon: So we are about ready to wrap up. So if that is your first: the world doesn't pass you by, you must stay up on top. Do you have one or two other things more and then I'll let Christie do hers. Maura Carlin: The thing that I keep telling myself that I wished I told myself earlier was to be bolder and be braver. And things that scare me, I have to go do them. Andi Simon: I love that be bolder, be braver. I never thought of it that way. But you're right. To be brave I think is what we need to be because the times have always been tough. And somehow we all had families that mustered through them. And I think these are going to be exciting times to come out and be brave, be courageous. Christie, your last thoughts. Christie Derrico: With the gratitude theme, sometimes we have to stop and reflect and really applaud ourselves about what we've achieved. Stop focusing on what we didn't do, the things that didn't turn out great. Never. You must love to have experienced love loss, like it's all part of it. And I think that Maura and I do a post mortem at the end of our season, and even sitting here today, I was thinking this weekend, how much we achieved on the goals we set for ourselves. And if some don't happen, that doesn't really matter. That's okay too. But it's important to take stock and be appreciative and compliment yourself that you've done a good job. Andi Simon: You know, the brain research I love because it's, you know, being an anthropologist and looking at culture, that the brain, the human being, needs gratitude, appreciation. It needs to have those three things every day that you did well. And all of a sudden, the car is actually toasted and the rain goes flying around and that love hormone makes you feel warm and fuzzy. If you don't, the cortisol has a great time making you feel angry. Somebody said to me at a meeting, "I have a friend who's angry all the time. How do they change?" He said, "Just take control of your mind. There's nothing in your mind. That's anger. It's just the way you think. So now what's happening is you're happy." How do you turn lemons into lemonade because nobody can do it but us. And we can each do it so that we can then smile every morning. So the first thing that my little 30-day challenge tells you to do is to wake in the morning and smile. And all of a sudden, the day looks very cool. Why not? It's perfect. This has been such fun. If they want to listen to The Balance Dilemma, or get a hold of you, where and how do they do that? Christie Derrico: We are on the internet at thebalancedilemma.com where you can find old episodes. We have show notes and things recommended by our guests. We're also on social media at The Balance Dilemma podcast on Facebook and LinkedIn. And any place you listen to your podcasts, which could be Apple, iTunes, Google Spotify. The Balance Dilemma, you can find all the episodes and listen in. We appreciate it. Andi Simon: You were bold and brave and courageous and true. And I loved having both of you here. So for my listeners, all of you have done a great job making us in the top 5% of global podcasts. I don't know how many podcasts there are, so I don't know what that actually means, other than it's fun to share. And we're in the top world 20's futures podcast. So I'm a real fan of Futurism because the signals are coming to us every day. And today's podcast makes me remember that there are signals coming to us that the times are changing fast. We know that. But how can we do this in a way that will be stronger for our kids and their kids and create a real strong culture and society where children are in the forefront of what we're doing and how we're doing it? And that doesn't mean just popping them in the car and helicoptering them over to the next lacrosse game. I mean, there's something broader here and even getting them to love to read and understand the joy of exploring ideas and staying on top of what's happening because they're going to lead us. These are great, great stories. You can reach me at info@andisimon.com. My books are on Amazon, Barnes & Noble: Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business and On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights from which this whole podcast developed. And as we move into our post-300th podcast, I'm really happy to be sharing lots and lots of great stories. Thanks for coming. Have a great day. Stay well and enjoy the joy of living.

It's just me this week with a short episode talking about what we (or at least what I) expect of summer and how drastically different it looks by the end of the sunny season. This episode came to me on our family vacation.  We and our very close friends have rented 2 RVs and driven from La to TX, down to the Mexico boarder,  NM, and are now headed back. It's been a whirlwind adventure and by this point (with a day and a half left) I'm just about spent. We all are! It's been hilarious, tense, incredibly beautiful, and crazy fun. However, and to be perfectly honest, I struggle figuring what day it is (forget even asking me the date) and I have no idea which time zone we're in.  And, as I type and post this episode (because I finally have 2 bars of service,) we are bumping down one of the few no so great Texas roads (at least, I think we're back in Tx now...) and I'm listening to the constant walkie talkie radioing between Smith (my husband) and A-A-ron (My friends husband.) One last funny insight... I love this description of our 2 families. There are 10 of us. 2 RVs. 4 Adults.6 Kids. (5 boys + 1 baby girl)And half of the kids are on the spectrum and the others like pushing all buttons and boundries.We are one Motley Crew! We are interesting. Funny as all get out.

Hi, I'm Andi Simon, and I'm your host and your guide. My job is to get you off the brink. And as you know, that's not always so easy. Change is painful. Sometimes we need new ideas, we need new tools, new ways to think about things. Your mind can be your best asset or it can really hold you back from trying the new. It likes the familiar and the habits. And it really is wonderful, but it does exactly what it thinks you want it to do. Today, I bring to you Paula Guilfoyle and Paula is an expert on helping you manage your mind, and watch those triggers that really do things that take you to places you don't want to go. She's going to tell you about herself, but then she's got a whole program and a process that I think is well worth sharing so that you can expand your tools and begin to do what we want you to do which is see, feel and think in new ways so you can change. And change is painful. So we're going to make it easy for you today. Paula, thank you for joining me. Paula Guilfoyle: I'm thrilled to be with you today, Andi, thanks so much for having me. Andi Simon: Tell our listeners and our viewers who Paula is. Tell us about your journey. This story is great. Paula Guilfoyle: Okay, so very quickly, I'm one of eight kids and I was actually born rich. The riches that I have claimed for myself are: one, I'm one of eight children, I'm the fifth in five years. Second: I have actually lost a brother 10 years ago, we had a very special brother, a special Olympian. The third richness I had was that, at age 13, I went on one of two family vacations. And on that family vacation, my dad passed on. And the fourth richness is my mom. My mom was a quadriplegic at the time of my dad passing. So I mentioned those, I rarely bring those up at the end. But I mentioned those because they are my richness. They are absolutely those challenges that we all have, that we all face, that I will call just the blah, blah, blah, the story of your life. And if you keep this your story, if you tell people through that lens, I had so much against me versus I had all these things that happened for me that allowed me later to be blessed with and I don't say this tongue in cheek, have I got 12 years of treated depression. And not being a medical doctor, all I can tell you is, on reflection, I know and I understand that I chose to think in a particular way and couldn't find my way out of that way. Eventually, after spending about 15-20 years very successfully in corporate America, I decided that I had studied the mind and personal development enough that I wanted to pass that along to people to help them. So that's it. Andi Simon: Well, pause for a second because let's just think about what you're sharing with the listeners. You're going to help them think about managing their minds. You were astute enough to realize that the mind was doing exactly what it thought you wanted it to do. And there were enough catalytic moments in your life that you shared with us for it not to necessarily be a simple, easy, happy, light one. Well, it's time to have learnings or things that were making you reflect on both the past and the future. And somehow you turn those all into a career with corporate and otherwise, that is helping other people do even better. A little bit about how you began to move forward in a new direction. Paula Guilfoyle: Great question. I decided, as I mentioned, that it was just something that was important to me that I had to do something outside of corporate America, something where I can place my own mark on it. So I started speaking and I started learning how to speak through Toastmasters. I always loved public speaking and did some of that in my corporate life in sales and sales training and HR. And then just created some different opportunities. And one thing led to another where I created a model that I teach around and I spoke once in front of a great friend of mine who's a VP of HR and actress but she said, "That model Paula, that model was amazing." And I said, "What are you talking about? What models?" She said, "That casting you were talking about? That was really amazing." I said, "GAP is just an acronym for me to remember my speech," and then I was like, Okay, so it's a model. The GAP model apparently is something well-known in finance. So I decided it had to be the GAP Formula. And a very simple GAP Formula is a way to get from where you are to where you want to be. And I started spreading this. So for example, the reason why I shared my story today was, I shared that story in a public venue where I was asked to speak for free as part of an event and someone from Coca-Cola was in the audience. And through my story, they connected with me. And because of that, Coke hired me for three years. And I mentioned that because we all are challenged and this is a way to get past some of those challenges. So Andi, can I share one tool with your audience? So one of the most popular tools that I teach, and most of my tools are three steps, because we're lucky if we can remember three steps, right? Things taught in threes tend to be helpful for our brain to remember. So the acronym for this particular tool is PBS, as in Public Broadcast System, but this is your Private Broadcast System. This is three steps to get out of a situation when you were triggered. So Andi, ask me, what's the trigger? Andi Simon: You know, for the listeners and the viewers, our audience, I think if you're going to think about triggers, you better help them understand what is a trigger. And how is it going to do something to, and who that's going to be? So help them understand that. I love the thought of what's causing you to react to something. Paula Guilfoyle: So a trigger is anything that will cause you to change behavior. So a trigger could merely be your first thought of the day. Today can be a great day, or today's going to be a disastrous day, or this person is tough, or that meeting will be wonderful. So a trigger is anything that happens. The most challenging triggers are the ones that just put you into a tailspin. And you don't even know what happened. Those triggers usually include something that's embedded way, way in the past. So I'll give you a couple examples of a trigger. For example, somebody at a meeting says, "I didn't like your idea," but maybe they're a little bit more forward than that. So use these three steps: PBS. You pause, because between stimulus and response is all your opportunity, as Stephen Covey said. You just pause for a little bit. You breathe to calm yourself down on a cellular level. That would be: pause, breathe and then you smile. So the person at the other end will either think, "Wow, did she hear me, understand that I was sort of not exactly complimentary of her idea?", or they might understand that the person who is smiling is actually in control of their behaviors. And if you want to shortcut this, simply smile, because that ignites your brain, as we know, to happy chemicals. And even if it's a cheshire cat, frozen smile, it will have that same positive result. Andi Simon: But remember, humans are mimics, like monkeys. So when you smile, the person on the other end of the table is gonna have a hard time not smiling. That person may not even know why. But yeah, there clearly was some, whatever the intent was, came back with a smile. And that changes the whole dynamics of that interaction, but the interesting trigger response, fascinating. So PBS is pause, breathe and smile. And then what do you do? Paula Guilfoyle: And then you have to substitute a different thought. You must substitute different thoughts so there's something going on here. And initially your thought may be, Well, now I'm really upset with Sarah. Now I'm really upset with Max," whoever triggered you, or you may not even realize what he may know. "I'm really upset and I don't know what's going on." You must get out of it. So there are a few ways to do that. One of the things that is most effective, believe it or not, is movement, right? The brain follows the body. So you get up and dance, or if you do something I call the musical walk. So I'll teach your audience the musical walk really quickly. This is something you can do anywhere. When I'm on stage, I'll say, "Snap with me." Have you ever been to a musical? Have you ever noticed in a musical, they can't walk normally. A little bounce, little swing. Can you imagine walking down the hallway at home or at work, snapping your fingers and dancing a little bit and feeling badly. It's almost impossible because your brain picks up those body movements. I remember a person at Coke, he would always snap as he walked down the hallways, and it wasn't the musical walk, it was just who he was. He was trying to ignite that happiness. So you must alternate that negative feeling because you will feel badly with a bad thought. So you must change that up. And either have a phrase that you say to yourself: "Hey, I'm okay. This is alright. I can handle this. I can get out of this. Today's going to be a good day." You have to think of something that's going to shift your thinking or get into some activity. Get up, walk around the building. I'll say to people, Pick up your cell phone and talk yourself out of it. Yep, so you're talking to a friend. So just some ideas. Andi Simon: Because without those tools, things happen. We don't quite know what to do. I don't remember anyone in elementary school or high school ever teaching me, I'll call them survival strategies. You remember being in business and being the only woman very often, right? I was in a management team at a bank, and I was the only woman in that management team. It was a lonely place. And I wasn't quite sure if what the guys were saying was the way I was hearing it. It was hard to always interpret intention. But if I didn't have a way of coping with it, I would smile, a long time ago. And I also remember a little technique that someone taught me, say to somebody, "It sounds like what you mean is..." and keep it in their zone, out of yours. Because remember, we decide with the heart and the eyes and the gut. And if we don't feel like it's the right thing, we better have some tools to help manage those emotions. I also learned a long time ago, never do anything when you're hungry, angry, lonely or tired: HALT. Because the emotions take over. And you need a click, a long walk down to break up, we can then manage our emotions and manage our thinking and manage feelings. Paula Guilfoyle: That's really it. I have a little thing called: her life gets a cup of tea. So if you take those letters T A, and stack them one on top of the other, your thinking creates your emotions or your energy and then that creates your action. And if you want to write, if you want to add one more letter, you can tear into your life, and that creates your results. So it's your thinking. You have a good thought in the morning. And then you have great emotions or energy. Your thinking causes how you feel, your emotions, and then that causes how you're going to act. And then that will cause your results. That's your whole life is a cup of tea, or you can tear into your life, as I call it, as well. So you're absolutely on target as usual Andi with that explanation. People need to understand that there's so many things going on in your environment. And one of the things that I really caution my clients about are things like the news, social media. Things that could easily take you off track, do not tune in. And there's also the naysayer in the group. Do your best to divert the conversation somewhere else to move along. And so I'll give you one other quick tool when that thought comes in your mind, and that thought is just, Wow this can be bad data. You can pause, breathe and smile, or you could NBC. You could notice the thought, bounce the thought, and change the thought. I love NBC. So notice that thought, bounce that thought, and change that thought to anything that makes you feel even a little better. Because as we know, you are a person of emotions. As you heard earlier, your person is made up of emotion. So to think that I, for example, when I was depressed, I was going to go to joy. I feel so joyful...not likely. But if you can feel a little bit better, and believe it or not, people who are depressed, when they get angry, actually, it's a move up. So what would be just a little bit more positive? I can handle this. I think this could turn out right. It's possible, this could work for me. Some sort of wording like, It's okay, I can handle this. Andi Simon: You know, someone said this to me: "You sound like your cup isn't half full, it's overflowing." Paula Guilfoyle: Well, I believe, as I imagine you do, Andi, is that we have to work on this, every day. So what are some of the practices you use to keep as positive and focused as you are? Andi Simon: Well, I'm a big believer in self-care. In fact, we have a 30-day challenge of self-care. I coach a lot of my clients on it. But for me, you asked what I do. I try the night before, I put my to-do list together for the next day. Because for one reason or another, I found it difficult to get out of bed in the morning until I had it a little bit organized once and it was perfect. And the self-care is, I try to make sure that I do something for me before the day begins. And once I've done that, the day is perfect, because I've taken care of me. And so whether that's working out, work, exercise, taking my dog for a walk, even sitting and having a quiet cup of coffee before the day begins. And I've given myself permission to take care of me. And then you know, all the other stuff comes together. At the end of the day, I found that there are some really neat things that my husband and I can do that's quiet. I'm not a TV watcher. What I find is, reading gives me a focus and a purpose. So once you begin to build a life, let's call it my meaning, I begin to see self-care wrap around. But I must tell you that I've always been pretty positive. And I'm blessed. I've been married for 54 years. And my daughters are happy. They're all healthy, my grandkids are great. And so if you spoke at the beginning about the richness you had in a life that had pain in it, and I have been blessed with a life that's had less than yours, but a little, but I'm really celebratory about every day being a gift. I'll tell you one last story. Now in 2005, I had a horse roll over on me and he broke my neck and he gave me a concussion. But I'm walking, talking, dancing and every day I wake up and say, It's a gift. That was a moment, you never know. So stay positive, because there can only be one who can make you positive. Paula Guilfoyle: Absolutely. So important. So important. And it sounds so simple. And it is, and yet our brain can go off track. So you really have to focus on that ability that you have to constantly change your thoughts. You can't control what comes in, you can control after that thought is created in your brain. You can decide, I don't feel good, I'm going to change that thought. Andi Simon: Any insights that came out of pandemic experiences that have given a particular flavor or color to the work that you're doing? Paula Guilfoyle: So yes, I think one of the things that I'm aware of is, everyone has been through some form of post-traumatic stress. We've all had something happen to us. And different people obviously handle it in different ways. So one of the things that I want to be aware of, and I would invite others to be aware of, is compassion. We really don't understand why that person is kicking and screaming, in a sense. That it's the three-year-old acting out, and I'll give you a somewhat funny story about my three-year-old. I am with the most wonderful, wonderful partner I could ask for: Jeff. And Jeff, during our first year of dating, forgot my birthday, and called the next day and said, "Oh my gosh, I think your birthday might have been yesterday." And I said, "Yeah, it was. But you know, it's more of a weekend. I'm here in San Francisco and coming back to Charlotte, and we can celebrate on Monday. I've got the day off." And he said, "Oh, Monday won't really work. First of all, your birthday is past. I gotta play golf." Well, that was a trigger. I mean, it was the strangest feeling. So when you're really triggered on what I'll call a childhood wound, or childhood perception, and I said to myself, You know what? I need to hang up now, because I knew it wasn't going to turn out well. So fast forward, I had a really challenging time giving that up until I recognized that it was my three-year-old, my five-year-old, who wanted a birthday party, and when I tell the story, I literally wear a little birthday hat on my head. And we don't know when the three-year-old or the five-year-old, or the seven-year-old is going to show up for someone. And then there's compassion, which he did offer me. He said, "I can see and I understand this must be a big deal for you. Or for some reason. So yes, you know, I'm gonna put off the golf game." As for his answer, he played the golf game, but we celebrated that night. So, you know, it's just a sense of compassion, because everybody's been a bit tossed about, and there's that little person in there that's fearful. Andi Simon: It's been a great conversation. It's about time for us to think about our audience, and two or three things that you don't want them to forget. And your last story is unreal. One or two things that you really think are important. People often remember the ending better than the beginning. Paula Guilfoyle: Okay, so a couple things. One is that voice in your head: that voice in your head does not tell the truth. And is not necessarily your friend. Now, let me rephrase that: the voice in your head, when you are not feeling good, is not telling you the truth. It's telling you limiting beliefs that may have been picked up during childhood, or may have been picked up a little later on. Your goal is to NBC: notice, bounce, and change that voice to say, You know what? I can little by little change that. The second thing I would remind you is that second tool: pause, breathe, and smile. And then finally, just to get some resources. There's so many different ways you can get resources. I do have over 152 minute-reads. I call it One Minute Happy Blogs on my website. So my website is Claimleadership.com. And it'll just pop up. You know, if you want to sign up for the blog, just hit this. I work with leaders and teams who want to have better outcomes in their life at work and at home. They want to be more peaceful, more focused, more productive so that they can be a valuable resource at home and at work. Andi Simon: I have been delighted to share your stories with our audience because our job, and you can hear the commonality here, is to help you see, feel and think in new ways so you can better your personal life, your professional life and your business. Whatever it is, remember, all of life is a conversation and each conversation, you can call it a trigger, but it's going to require a response from you. And I love the idea of whatever it is, start with a smile. That softens the whole conversation, takes off any of the edges to it, and humans love smiles. So it becomes a great way to start the day: smile and keep it going. For our listeners in our audience, may I tell you how much I appreciate the fact that you've pushed us into the top 5% of podcasts globally, which is such fun and you come from across the world to see and listen to us.
