For the past 14 years, Jaime Casap has been the Chief Education Evangelist for Google. He recently left that position, and like many of us, Jaime is now on the path to figuring out what he’s going to do next. 

 

Jaime and Amy Jo discuss the Why Not Now? moment that led him to Google; a moment that took him from New York to Arizona with only $40 in his pocket. Jaime’s main focus is on education, and he shares the question he believes we should be asking rather than “what do you want to be when you grow up?” He also discusses how changing your view of learning from a process to a mindset can greatly help you along the path of finding what you want to do in life. 

 

You’ll also get to hear Jaime’s ingenious inbox trick he uses when going on vacation to keep from coming back to thousands of emails. He gives tips on how to design your own day and how to rethink the idea of “work/life balance” so you can just simply live life.

This week, Amy Jo and Richard kick off their Renegade Road Trip. After their home sold faster than they thought it would, rather than settling for a new home they were completely sold on they decided to buy an RV and hit the road. They discuss how they came to this decision by sharing the 5 Renegade Rules they following when making big life decisions. These tips are applicable to almost any decision you may have in front of you and if you’re ready to start a new project then make sure to take notes and ask yourself these questions first.

 

Amy Jo and Richard also share how they plan to safely travel the western half of the country while social distancing along the way. They talk about their worries and fears of adapting to living in an RV, especially with a 1-year-old.

Alicia Menendez is a Writer, MSNBC Anchor, and Advocate for Women in the Workplace. She is the author of "The Likeability Trap: How To Break Free and Succeed As You Are".

 

Alicia shares a Why Not Now? moment that effected every aspect of her life, career, and those she was working with. She explains the questions she asked herself, and the process she applied, to see if the “risk” was worth it to potentially put her career in jeopardy, which led her to drill down on what she actually wanted out of her next career move. 

 

She discusses losing and gaining momentum and being open to putting a few opportunities, and side gigs, together to lay a foundation for your next move. 

 

Alicia has been described as “unflusterable”. She talks through her methodology when she starts to feel flustered, and how you can use her tools in your own day. 

 

Alicia gives an overview of her book "The Likeability Trap" and how we look at “likability” in today’s society, specifically when it comes to women in the workplace.

 

You’ll learn why there’s a call for authentic leadership in the workplace, and how we can do better as a culture to reckon with the idea of likability as a cover for bias. 

 

You’ll learn how you can create meaningful feedback and evaluations that take a 360-degree approach to incorporate opinions of many, versus the opinion of one, and how you can ask better questions when receiving feedback. 

 

Alicia also shares her thoughts on branding, and why you don’t have to be all things to all people to be a brand, as long as you are authentic to yourself and are known for what you want to be known for.
