Dump Your Degree & Get to the Career You Want with Zakiya Akerele - Episode #32
Episode #32 - Dump Your Degree & Transition to the Career You Want with Dr. Zakiya Akerele I often talk about the "sunk cost fallacy." It's a term from behavioral economics that describes our tendency to follow through on or stick with something that we've already invested a perceived large amount of time, effort, or money into it, whether or not we're still receiving a return on that investment. This stems from a loss aversion or the belief that everything you worked for will be lost. It's the thing that keeps us trapped in careers we no longer love. So, for example, if you've spent years, time, and money getting your law, medical, doctorate, MBA, MPH, or engineering degrees, it becomes very challenging for you to believe or even entertain the idea that you can do something else outside of those degrees. In today's podcast, our guest Dr. Zakyia Akerele shares how you don't have to be held captive by or defined by the degrees you've earned and how you can leverage that education and experience to figure out the right career for you.  In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…  Why a degree won't guarantee you career success, and what can.How experimenting with different jobs can get you clarity on the career you really want.How midlife (mid-career) professionals can repurpose their education.Why "who you know" is as important as "what you know to have career success.Why you need a support system and should not try to do this alone.How to manage fears and doubts when going after the career and life you really want.  Featured On the Show:  Career Rebel Academy:  Your Degree:  29: How to Run a Career Pilot Study: 26: Leveraging Your Past to Get the Career You Want:  About Our Guest:  Dr. Zakiya Akerele is an Atlanta-based educator, author, and speaker who found an early passion in academic pursuits hoping to use them to improve herself and the world around her. She sought higher education with full force, obtaining degrees from Florida A&M University (B.A.), Columbia University (Ed.M.), and Fordham University(M.A. and Ph.D.) in International Education, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. Dr. Akerele has served in various capacities at higher education institutions and at social justice, political, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) both in the U.S. and abroad.

How to Open Yourself Up to New & Exciting Career Opportunities with Casey Hasten - Episode #31
Episode #31 - How to Open Yourself Up to New & Exciting Career Options with Guest Casey Hasten Over the years of my work in this space, I’ve found four levels of careerists: Drifter, Hustler, Established. and Rebel. Unfortunately, many people are caught at the Hustler level (running on autopilot, blindly following a societal career ladder) or Established (working hard to maintain everything achieved after years of hustling). At both of these levels, what keeps women stuck are two things: (1) believing there’s no other path to pursue and (2) “settling for good enough.” In today’s podcast, our guest Casey Hasten shares how she broke out of that Hustler/Established level and opened up a new and exciting world that has allowed her to continue growing and evolving in her career. In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover… Casey’s midlife career pivot journey.Why knowing yourself is an essential component of finding career fulfillment.The power of having people to support you and your career decisions.The importance of testing out career options and what it can do for you.How the job search process has changed in the new world of work.The best way to work with recruiters.Why now is a good time for a midlife career change.How to figure out the best career path for you. Featured On the Show: Career Rebel Academy:  vs. Force by Dr. David Hawkings:  Your Potential Journal (coming soon):  29: How to Run a Career Pilot Study: 30: You’re Allowed to Change Your Mind:   Quotables From the Show: “Being ‘at choice’ means being present and in the moment, open to the opportunities that may come your way.”“Say goodbye to times that no longer serve you.”“Enjoy the journey, not just the destination.”“What people think about you is not your business.” About Our Guest: Casey Hasten is the Director of Recruiting and Coaching with VIP, Podcast Host of the We Are VIP Podcast and soon-to-be-published author.   After being in the accounting world for over twenty years, she made the leap to recruiting those with similar backgrounds.  It is her goal to help others find their career passion using all the skills and networking outlets she has gathered. Additionally, her mission is to help raise the consciousness of the world by helping those she touches learn to be at choice.  To accomplish this mission, she focuses on the importance of mindset first and foremost and teaches her clients how to live “at choice” and how to co-create their own reality through managing perceptions.  This has led to her most recent passion and project, the Awaken: Your Potential journal.

How to Regret-Proof Your Decisions - Episode #28
Episode 27 - How to Regret-Proof Your Decisions Research has found there are two types of regret: regret for what you didn't do or missed opportunities or experiences and regret for what you did. While, over time, people get over the things they've done, those who regret what they didn't do have a lingering regret because they imagine what they missed as being better than what they have. Letting go of regret is admittedly easier said than done, but living in regret is far worse damaging to your health and your ability to trust yourself. This week on the podcast, I'm talking about the connection between fear, decision-making, and regret and how you can manage it.   In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…  What is regret? The types of regret people struggle with. What regret does to us and our ability to trust ourselves. The underlying assumptions of regret. Why it's important to let go of the binary idea of right or wrong decisions. How to deal with regret. Accept that life is 50/50 and redefine failure.

Unmasking Patriarchy & Internalized Oppression Episode #23
Episode 23 - Unmasking Patriarchy & Internalized Oppression It's not uncommon for high-achieving women to look successful and accomplished on paper while still secretly feeling like an imposter or trapped by their own success. As a result, they're often unable to fully appreciate their accomplishments, realize their power, show up authentically, or feel free and fulfilled.

In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover… What patriarchy and internalized oppression is and how it manifests.Why you struggle with feeling successful despite your achievements.How to spot when it's playing out in your life and what you can do about it.How to identify and reject the myths developed by the patriarchy.Why create a safe space to do this work in the Career Rebel Academy.

Episode 22: Finding Power When You Feel Powerless w/Deepa Purushothaman  What happens when you're in a leadership position or a position of power, but you struggle with owning that title, that authority? How do you feel, find, and forge it when you've been conditioned not to? In midlife, most women go through an honest reckoning, a fundamental questioning of self and what's important to them and how they want to be in the world but rarely have the tools and process to discover the answers to those critical questions. Today on the podcast, my guest shares her research with other 500 women of color in unique and influential positions in corporate America but still struggle to find their full authentic voice. Women of color who have muted themselves or conformed to external expectations are now in search of not only redefining power but securing their own.  In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover… What it means to hold positions of power as women of color.How to identify the delusions that hold us back and how to overcome them. Why it’s critical to permit yourself to go after what you want. What to do when faced with naysayers.Why it’s essential to be part of a community of support.The questions to ask yourself to reclaim your voice and power.

Trusting Yourself Through the Transition with Diane Halfman - Episode #19
Episode 19: Trusting Yourself Through the Transition with Diane Halfman  According to the American Institute of Stress, changing careers is the top 20 most  stressful life events. So how do you handle a career change when it's unexpectedly  forced on you? First, you have to learn to trust yourself and know that all of your  experience and everything you've gone through has happened for a reason. It  happened to prepare you for what's next. And now it's time to trust that when we're  put on a new path, you owe it to yourself to explore what's showing up and discover  your unique purpose to be here in the world that no one else can do better than you.  That's exactly what my guest Diane Halfman had to do when she shattered her gun  hand after being an undercover police officer and began exploring a new career path  as a speaker, trainer, and consultant.   In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…   Diane’s journey from undercover cop to productivity consultant.  How Diane leveraged her skills as a police officer to empower herself and her  clients to step into their power.   Why trusting yourself and trusting the process will lead you to discover what  you’re meant to do in the world.   How to use your past to support your success in the future.   Why it’s ok to hit the “reset button” to reclaim your best self.  Featured On the Show:   Living the SPALife Podcast:   The How to Avoid CRISIS Resource Guide:  Les Brown Quote: “You can’t see the whole picture when you’re in the frame.” Clement Watt Quote: “Take the first step.

Believing in What's Possible - Episode #18

Believing in What's Possible - Episode #18
Episode 18: Believing in What's Possible How do you know what's possible for you in your life or career? How do you know it's achievable? I've found that the reason we struggle with believing what's possible is because of fear. More specifically, I think the culprit is that many of us suffer from having a victim mentality. What I mean by that is that we don't want to deal with our feelings of fear, take responsibility for ourselves or the outcome we want in our lives and careers. It's scary because what if it doesn't work? Who will we blame? And if we're to blame, what does that say about who we are and what we can achieve? However, there's a way to overcome victim mentality, to start believing and achieving what's possible, and we're unpacking that today on the podcast.  In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…  Why we struggle with victim mentality. Where victim mentality comes from. How it keeps us stuck and unable to move forward. How managing our emotions can help us break through victim mentality. Why vulnerability and embracing imperfection is key to getting what you want.
