‘The Messy Middle’ with Shannon Schottler

It’s the Shannon show! Sometimes it feels like that when getting together with my friend Shannon Schottler. We laugh and have immense amounts of fun together. Who is she more than my dear friend from college though? Shannon Schottler is an accredited Life/Career Coach guiding and empowering folks through life transitions. YES! Someone that loves life transitions as much as me, well at least talking about them.

Shannon always leaves me thinking and pondering after our conversations. When we recorded this episode vs. now just a few weeks later — so much has changed, yet hasn’t. Change is constant in our lives yet sometimes we still see to be stuck and there is not enough impactful change in some of the BIG stuff in our world and lives. 2020 has definitely taught us about change – unexpected and even more so the extreme waking people up to radical change that is still needed.

In our conversation, we discuss how we approach change with compassion and courage. We have since exchanged messages about the cancel culture that we live in. I love Shannon (Schottler’s) view of staying in dialogue and making sure that we aren’t focused on winning conversations that result in conflict. She and I come from similar mindsets that lasting change comes from open conversations that involve people truly listening to hear not listening to respond.

Wise Women Build Wealth

On today’s episode, we are talking about making a career change and the importance of a support system during big transitions. The questions you might ask yourself are; How do you know when it’s time to move on? What do I need to know about tax planning and retirement planning while transitioning? According to a survey by InHerSight, seven in ten women are looking to change careers. This is up 28 percent since we posed the same question just last year. So, why are they looking to change careers? We are seeing that a common theme is “burnout.”
