Ken Coleman is America’s Career Coach, the #1 national bestselling author of The Proximity Principle and From Paycheck to Purpose, and host of The Ken Coleman Show. Ken is known for helping people discover what they were born to do and providing practical steps to make their dreams reality.

 

In Amy Jo’s conversation with Ken, they talk through his personal journey and how he had to realize that “Nobody is sitting around thinking about how they are going to help you. You have to help yourself.” Ken went back to the basics and started with connecting, which he describes as a posture of learning.

 

Ken left the business world to move into broadcasting with no degree, no experience, and little connections. He talks about how he overcame fear, doubt, and pride issues. Ken had to collect on his career collateral so that he could get in the broadcasting industry and win.

 

Amy Jo and Ken discuss the difference between making things happen versus a letting things happen, and you’ll learn three key questions to ask yourself when considering changing careers so you can win in the next one.

Jodi Shelton, the co-founder and president of GSA (Global Semiconductor Alliance), plays full out. She has maintained a job since 6th grade, established herself as a pioneer within the technology space, written a screenplay, moved across the country, ran a triathlon and has grown GSA to include companies throughout the supply chain, representing 25 countries across the globe. Her strong work ethic and grit materializes as perpetual forward movement.

Jodi is not afraid when it comes to going from idea to action. In this episode, you will hear how she followed Renegade Rule #2 and manifested her Why Not Now? idea to move to China. Jodi also discusses how one conversation, at a typical quarterly board meeting, sparked her to start the Women’s Leadership Initiative almost immediately once the meeting ended.

You’ll learn Jodi’s tips for parents trying to juggle work and home life, her philosophy on “busy” and how she rejects it, the importance of curiosity, and how she kept her sanity through a very difficult season.

Jodi bets on herself and believes in her ideas. Her zest for life and willingness to invest in her curiosity is contagious.
