We're back this week with a conversation that just feels so timely for where we find ourselves today... individually and collectively. Anthony Russo sat down with us and honestly, it was like a breath of fresh air. Anthony is the founder of#bethechange, a movement thats message is simple: change all starts within in. It calls for self responsibility and accountability, with the underlying premise that we cannot show up for the world around us until we show up for ourselves.
In today's world, it can be easy to get lost in the "negativity," in all sectors of society. Anthony's message is so amazing because it positions where we find ourselves within a context of something larger. Anthony shares how his decade-long dream of being a motivational speaker became a reality, and how that evolution fits into the evolution of the organization itself. He is sharing his journey through the evolution of #bethechange- the movement itself, what drives it, and how it fits into the human experience. Listen to this week's episode and feel this amazing energy for yourself.
#bethechange is the foundation for #iamthechange- "an aggregate of stories for people that have taken initiative to create change in their own way." If you have a story that can help the lives of others, head to the website to join in on the conversation.

It's mic swap time! I sat down with Anu Vora. We talk about my experiences and lessons throughout my journey in finding my place within the the intersection of people and technology that by now, ya'll know I am very passionate about.
I'm sharing my ideas on company culture and the many gray areas that can exist within it. Here's some questions we touch on: Are we talking the talk AND walking the walk? Do our employees genuinely feel heard, seen, and supported? How does empathy truly fit within that culture? And beyond that, can we consciously own up to when we don't project that empathy in business and in life?
We're diving into how money impacts our world and the decisions we make while moving through it.
Further, we're diving into aspirations vs. expectations and how we can change our relationship to these things in order to effectively reach our goals without being too hard on ourselves.
Anu allowed me to sit down and think about my next goals- what I am working on and thinking about- in business, in marketing, and in life. She offered some amazing insights and thought provoking questions...take a listen and investigate these points of reflection in your own life.
