Phenomenal Woman Ep 018 - Amy Grant - In Order To Grow You Have To Be Uncomfortable (RE-WIND).

October 6, 2018

I'll be sharing past episodes of #PhenomenalWoman that are full of fabulous insight and inspiration. Listen to episode 18 with Amy Grant. Enjoy! 

I just love how this podcast gives me the opportunity to go behind the face of the women we see everyday, especially within corporate scenarios and this week is no exception  Amy Grant is a self-proclaimed travel junkie in love with foreign cultures, experiences and the inevitable commonalities always connecting even the most distinct societies. Amy’s love of travel began when she was a little girl in Englewood, NJ and was nurtured through her study abroad experiences in High School and Spelman College to Eastern Europe and the UK. This led to her the completion of her BA in History and Master of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University where she spent her summer in Honduras interning at the US Embassy in Tegucigalpa. Amy channeled her love of culture and history into a successful Marketing Career where for the last 15 years, she has specialized in building Marketing Communication programs based on morphing cultural and generational insights into dynamic and integrated campaigns designed to bring Brands closer to their target markets. Amy has served in this capacity for companies in the Pharmaceutical, Tourism, Entertainment and Telecommunication industries. Amy spent 11 years at Verizon where she was responsible for its National Promotional advertising and led integrated broadcast and digital marketing initiatives targeting the US Wireless’ division Mass, Multicultural and Millennial segments. Currently, Amy is Head of Brand and Consumer at Digicel Caribbean Limited, a Global Telecom and Entertainment provider operating in the Caribbean, South Pacific and Central America. She is responsible for all Brand Positioning, Regional Marketing Communications and Insights. Amy is based out of St. Lucia. Besides her love of travel, she enjoys spending time with her two nephews, is an active member of her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha and has just finished a documentary entitled “Two Deaths” which documents the last days of her mother’s bout with Alzheimer’s.

Phenomenal Woman Ep 014 - Wendaine Wright - Selfcare Is How You Take Your Power Back. (RE-WIND)

September 22, 2018

I'll be sharing past episodes of #PhenomenalWoman that are full of fabulous insight and inspiration. Enjoy episode 14 with Wendi Wright. Enjoy! 

Since our recording Wendi is following her passion with photography with beautiful results. You can see her work via instagram Shephtogs 

My name is Wendi Wright. I was born & raised in Jamaica. And yes, I have that indelible Jamaican pride! I say that because from humble beginnings, I was raised on hard work & manners is due to every man, woman and child. To do my picture justice, I tick all the main ethnic boxes. I grew up on the teachings of Marcus Garvey; the music of Bob Marley, Beanie man & Bounti Killer and many more; an English educational system & spelling; Indian food,seasonings & spices; Chinese culture & food; all while in America's backyard of political influence & their cable TV! For the past 9 years, I have been living amongst the diverse cultures & palm trees in Miami, Florida.

I won’t bore you with the degrees or letters behind my name. My 3 degrees come from Universities in Caribbean, UK & USA. The stories behind achieving each would have to be 3 long chapters in my lifetime biography. I have spent much of my career in the Telecommunications industry in the Caribbean. My present role is representing the Caribbean in the Diaspora market and managing marketing & product operations across multiple Caribbean markets. My education, work & current life have afforded me the opportunity to live & meet people from across every corner of the world.

All the good stuff aside, I know what it feels like to physically lose everything I own at the hands of a hurricane. That would be 2 pivotal chapters of my lifetime biography! I have also taken 2 major leaps of faith moving to different countries to pursue education & work. My mother would say because I was born premature, fighting for my life was ingrained into my core from day 0. I haven’t yet ticked all the boxes society says I should. But hey, that’s society’s problem! I know that I am right where I am supposed to be according to God’s plan as a part of his infinite universe. My hobbies are yoga & photography. You can find me on Linkedin or contact me at  wendi.wright@outlook.com Issa wrap! Nuff Blessings!

Real Talk……How to return to work after a career break

August 25, 2018

The four most common reasons for women pausing their careers are marriage, relocation, childbirth and caring for the elderly, and the breaks can range from 6 months to 15 years. An unplanned career break can spell disaster for most professionals and unfortunately, many women who interrupt their careers for personal reasons, do so without a plan in mind. Whatever the motives you had for taking a career break, finding a job can be daunting enough, but it can be even more unnerving once you’ve taken a break from leadership. So how can you transition back into the corporate world?

Real Talk - How you’re unconsciously sabotaging your career.

August 1, 2018

I’m really proud to have launched my new E-book 13 Strategies To Elevate Your Career, that offers practical actionable tips women ( or for that matter men) can utilize to increase their visibility in the career space. But whilst doing so I discovered another set of not so positive actions, let’s call these my Bakers Dozen of Self Sabotage Strategies aka how we get in our own way.

I’ve talked to a lot of women about challenges they face and the strategies employed to overcome and succeed in the workplace. Real talk, No matter what level you’re at in your career, we women, have a way of self-sabotaging our career, from small furtive mistakes to huge clangers that can have tongues wagging for weeks.

Listen to my list of career “don’ts” that so many of us engage in and see if you have some of these unproductive habits and then consider incorporating some of my suggested solutions. Believe me, you’ll avoid being the talk of the town, be happier and create a stronger foundation for success

Real Talk……Embrace the messy

July 25, 2018

We all know the "in control and got it all together woman", but what you didn’t see was the choas behind her seemingly perfect life. So I want to share that the “Got it all together” woman persona does come undone at times and as I was told recently as I had a little crisis of confidence “Wow you are human!”. Yes I am and I want us to recognize that everyone is a mess at some time or another, including me.

Laura Interval Gaines is a former international fashion model/actress turned toy inventor/women’s wellness advocate. She runs a successful toy invention business with her partner and created SOL Dance Experience, a holistic women’s fitness group that currently runs in several cities and growing.

Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, she describes herself as a citizen of the world, as she divides her time between New Zealand and various US states.

Gradually turning her focus to film and television, and enjoyed a career as an actress for 20 years. (guest stars include “Friends”, “Sex and the City”, “Law and Order”, “Star Trek”)

 Tired of the constant auditions and waiting by the phone, she decided to take a risk, at aged 45 and begin an entirely new career of toy inventing. 8 years later, with her partner she has created a fun, challenging and creatively thrilling career that she can do from anywhere in the world. As well pay attention to her calling of helping other women live better lives, manifested in the creation of a women’s holistic fitness group – SOL Dance Experience.
