Ep. 8 Does Motherhood Mean Giving Up Who You Are? A Talk with Kristin Baker
Learn more about how Elena Armijo can support you in seeing and using the power that resides within you: https://elenaarmijo.com/ Is work-life balance a myth? The mainstream idea of work-life balance is great, but it’s not necessarily attainable. Why? Well, the traditional idea of work-life balance can be static. It doesn’t fit everyone’s personalities or everyone’s desired schedules. Some people do not want to work on Mondays or Fridays; some people prefer working at the office, while others want to spend more time at home. Everyone’s idea of work-life balance is different. The trick is figuring out what that looks like—on your terms. In her Weekly Coaching Tip, Elena Armijo shares three steps we can follow to create balance in our lives. In her interview, Elena talks with entrepreneur and Director of Coaching for Luscious Mother, Kristin Baker, who encourages mothers to create balance on their own terms. Kristin’s vibrant soul, empathetic heart, and powerful compassion are truly awe-inspiring! She’s an amazing woman who is passionate about helping mothers reclaim their identities, maintain their wellbeing, and focus their lives so they can create the environment for their families to thrive.

Ep. 7 Being Empowered in Who You Are: An Interview with Carrie-Ann Matheson
Especially after the chaos of 2020, it’s easy to slip into a scarcity mindset where we are frantically trying to ensure that we have enough, that our clients are served well, and that we have a Plan B if everything falls apart again. However, this scarcity mindset keeps us from so much in life. Instead of having a scarcity mindset - or going to the opposite extreme and forcing ourselves to have the perspective of “Everything’s fine” - it’s important to focus on the vision we have for our lives, so we remain grounded. In her Weekly Coaching Tip, Elena Armijo discusses how to shift from a scarcity mindset, so we can have a more balanced outlook. In her interview segment, Elena speaks with vocal coach, pianist, conductor, educator, and the new artistic director of the San Francisco Opera Center, Carrie-Ann Matheson. These two powerhouse female leaders and musicians originally met when Elena came to Carrie-Ann for vocal coaching at the Metropolitan Opera, and they instantly connected. In this conversation, Carrie-Ann shares how she became part of the music world, the ways she has taken ownership of her gifts, the power music has to connect people, and her mission to empower others to own who they are.

Ep. 6 Looking at the World Through the Lens of Social Justice with Zoe Paliare
Why do we people please? We want to make everyone happy. We want to help them and we want to be accommodating, even at the expense of ourselves. It’s vital that we sacrifice for others, but if we are kind and selfless in order to be liked? Well, that’s manipulation. We all want to be loved, but we must be loved for who we really are. In her Weekly Coaching Tip, Elena provides crucial examples so we can determine if we have fallen into the trap of people-pleasing. In her interview, Elena Armijo talks with the amazing litigator turned leadership coach, entrepreneur, and development professional Zoe Paliare. Zoe’s fiery personality, strong convictions, and giving spirit make her a powerful champion for social justice. Through their discussion, Zoe talks about why social justice is so important to her, how she helps create avenues for more diversity in the workforce and coaching spaces, what coaches can do to be more inclusive, and what her latest social justice project is (here’s a hint: it’s a new podcast!).

Ep. 4 Step Up, Step Out, and Shine with Africa Miranda
Sometimes, we are our own worst enemies. We have a limiting belief that holds us back, so we never reach our full potential.
