Marta had a brilliant International career in Marketing, but when she became a mother, she knew that she would have had to take time to raise her children and be present for them during the formative years. That's what her mum did, giving her stability and values in her upbringing.What made Marta reflect and consider to change career was a shift of focus: what mattered then as a mother was different compared to her while an individual with an ambitious career.She then decided to retrain to acquire knowledge about early years education.Read more hereLISTEN AND YOU WILL LEARNHow to reassess one's priorities in a given life stage helps to get clarity on what matters.Look for opportunities to jump at if you have an idea or a passionUse of previous skills in the new activity, Marta and her husband had to reorganize their schedule to make all work.How important is to find fulfillment in what we do, and how to achieve it“Part of the process is to questioning the process”Trying and questioning is the only way to assess if a project or an idea is viable or valuable.FIND MARTA ONLINEMarta Coll, Espanhola (Catalã) , fluent in 5 languages who has lived in 7 countriesShe has worked for more than 13 years, in several companies and functions in the area of  Marketing and Management.

From finance to Women’s Healer & Preconception Doula, a radical shift happened after entering motherhood, with Marise Hyman

From finance to Women’s Healer & Preconception Doula, a radical shift happened after entering motherhood, with Marise Hyman
This episode focuses on Reinvention types – Life stagesEvery woman knows that maternity will have more than one impact over her life. Personally, emotionally and, of course, professionally. Many of us worry about the future of our career or job position during that delicate phase, which is becoming a mother.But one important thing is the way we look at the impact motherhood can have on our lives.Removing the negative connotations can help everyone to open up to new opportunities. It also helps approaching different phases of life with curiosity.Marise was curious and motivated. Her love of learning and reading since childhood helped her to pursue the new journey and retrain to create her new profession.She describes the steps like in a tale: ”Slowly by slowly following the breadcrumbs…” “I realized that I have been crying in my pillow every night for the last 18 years in my finance career”.  Marise knew ‌she wanted to make a change, and becoming a mother was the kick starter of the process.“It would have been too sad for my kids to see how sad I was in my old finance job, and I wanted to show them that you can change. When you put your mind to something you can do anything” Sometimes we need a big event to realize that some situations are no longer bearable and we find the strength or courage to change.LISTEN AND YOU WILL LEARN:Planning and preparing to become parents was the first research Marise did that eventually set her on her reinvention path. Her strengths, talents and positive mindset were the assets she used to support her commitment to the change. How important it is to focus on the ego: self healing and the work on personal development were the beginning of her transformation.Learning about Self Care and self love, feminine and masculine energy, different outcomes allowed her to design a more healthy life, filled with awareness. This process impacted all the relationships she was engaging with, both personal and professional. Marise’s Reinvention was led by her personal values. Marise Hyman drastically changed careers after her awakening when she became a mother.Now, As Self-Empowerment Coach-Healer, she guides women from trauma wounds to wisdom to birth the true versions of themselves, by neutralising the conscious & subconscious Limbic Imprint, from conception, gestation, birth and formative years when the sense of Self was formed & wounded.And as Preconception, Prenatal & Parenthood Doula, she similarly empowers families through “Conscious Conception”, pregnancy, birth and beyond so families and future generations can thrive in love.FIND MARISE ONLINEWebsite: marisehyman.comInstagram:marisehymanMarise mentioned Gabor Mate’s film about Traumatized society, https://drgabormate.com/MariRead more about this podcast here: https://between-cultures.com/podcast-2/Connect with me on Instagram | Facebook | YouTube | LinkedIn
The path to become who we are meant to be with Shellee Burroughs

The path to become who we are meant to be with Shellee Burroughs
This episode focuses on REINVENTION processVery often we believe that the normal professional path is: we have an aspiration, we get an education, and we go out to find the job we were trained for.Many times these paths are not linear, but include shifts. Those shifts typically happen as people make discoveries about themselves and gain new insights about their preferences.“Ten years worth of clinical experience made in 4 years time, operating in a different system, while I was in Malaysia”LISTEN AND YOU WILL LEARN:How important it is to believe in your potential and stay true to your nature, especially when tough times make you doubt. We might have different parts of ourselves or skills that at first we think might not fit together, but working towards our aspirations they can all come together  Joining an organization, hanging with like minded people, finding your tribe helps not only the reinvention transition, but can be fundamental for co-creation, collaborations and building partnerships. Plus you have peers to support you in the process. “Shellee says: “better a big island full of people and not a little rock by myself” Having the courage of being a trailblazer, opens up opportunitiesReinvention doesn’t always mean starting from scratch. Repurposing skills and allowing creativity and inner work to happen, can be a great foundation for a new project, more true to who we are or love to do. We cover this topic in my Reinvention webinars, check here if you want to learn more.Shellee’s advices: find your big threads, that you can always use and bring with you Shellee Burroughs is a Clinical Trauma Specialist and Art Psychotherapist who is trained and registered in both Canada and the UK.
