#118: Never Give Up with Amberly Lago
01:22:30

Regardless of the situation, always have true grit and grace!

In this episode, we are chatting with Amberly Lago, best-selling author, speaker, podcast host, and health coach. She started her speaking career after her life was deeply altered and her world was completely changed in May 2010. While riding her motorcycle in Woodland Hills, CA, she was hit by an SUV and thrown thirty feet down a busy street. Her right leg took the brunt of the impact and was crushed almost beyond repair.

Despite an incredibly difficult recovery process, being a former professional dancer, athlete, and fitness trainer, she was determined to not only save her leg, but her career, her dreams, and her dignity. After a lengthy hospital stay and 34 surgeries, doctors were able to fuse her leg together and repair her severed femoral artery despite the one percent odds of saving it and the initial recommendation to amputate. Her life experience and the proven strategies she has created to understand and maximize resilience resonate with companies whose core values include perseverance, grit, passion, and team building. And for audiences living with chronic pain (like her from CRPS) she delivers a powerful message of hope and offers solutions at conferences, workshops, and clinics.

In today’s episode, we discuss Amberly’s upbringing, how she survived abuse as a child, the importance of forgiveness, and how to most past self-pity. We also dive deeper into the repercussions of her car accident, how to pace (not push) yourself through pain, and how Amberly starts her days off with reminders of gratitude. Amberly’s story is incredibly powerful and inspiring - you won’t want to miss this episode!

Selfmade brings together the world's top female entrepreneurs to teach you how to create a new business or grow your existing one in a 10-week highly interactive virtual course.

In 2011, Brit started the progressive, girl centric brand Brit & Co which provides similar projects that she fell in love with all those years ago in a host of categories including business and illustrating!

Brit has been featured as a contributor for the likes of CNN, the Today Show, and Katie Couric, just to name a few and her latest book Homemakers: A Domestic Handbook for the Digital Generation is a guide to creative living in and out of your home.

Brit is also the founder of Selfmade which is the title of this room. Selfmade is an education and community platform for female entrepreneurs (more about that later). And finally, as if this wasn't enough, Brit is the host of the Teach Me Something New podcast.

#117: Let Go To Grow with Trent Shelton
01:02:21

You’re allowed to break up with your dreams. Sometimes letting go is the only way we can grow and go on to be successful.

 

In today’s episode, we are talking with Trent Shelton, former NFL player, author, and international motivational speaker. Considered as one of the most groundbreaking motivational speakers of our era, Trent has touched millions with his words on self-worth, self-love, and recognizing your greatness.

 

After his short-lived and rocky stint in the NFL, Trent had the opportunity to speak at a church event back home in 2011, and his world changed forever. After a sensational performance, it was undeniable to the audience and Trent that he found his purpose through inspiring others to live better lives. He started creating YouTube videos with his words of wisdom and courage, which went viral. Before he knew it, Trent was speaking across the globe and packing arenas from New York, to London and Fiji, and reaching over 50 million people across his social channels.

 

In today’s episode, we discuss Trent’s time in the NFL, what it was like pivoting to something completely new and how he was mentally able to let go of a failed dream.  We also discuss how it can get lonely at the top, when to walk away from relationships and we go deep on some timely social justice issues of today.

#116: How Netflix Disrupted The Entertainment Industry with Marc Randolph
01:06:21

Ever wonder how Netflix became the giant it is today?

 

In this episode, we are chatting with Marc Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix. Marc is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor, and investor. As founding CEO of Netflix, he laid much of the groundwork for a service that’s grown to 150 million subscribers and fundamentally altered how the world experiences media.

 

Marc’s career as an entrepreneur spans four decades. He’s founded or co-founded six other successful startups, mentored hundreds of early-stage entrepreneurs, and as an investor has helped seed dozens of successful tech ventures. Most recently, he co-founded analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, where he now serves as director. Outside of the tech and startup world, Marc sits on numerous other company boards and is an outdoors enthusiast.

 

In this episode, we discuss how Marc started his career, his wilderness experiences that shaped his leadership style, and the importance of experimentation. We’ll also talk about why there’s no such thing as a ‘perfect’ idea, how Netflix rose to dominance, and Marc’s perspective on the importance of culture.

#YAPSnacks: Are NFTs a Fad or the Future of Art?
26:16

Are NFTs a Fad or the future of art?

 

Today on YAP Snacks, Hala takes you on a journey to learn about NFTs, the cryptoart that top entrepreneurs and investors are backing as the next big thing that shouldn’t be dismissed similar to the dot com boom in the late 90s.

 

NFTs are the latest cryptocurrency phenomenon to enter the mainstream – they turn digital works of art and other collectibles into one-of-a-kind, verifiable assets

 

While the concept of NFTs have been around since 2012, they’ve exploded over the past year.  In 2020, the market grew by 229%, reaching $250 million in value. And, in February 2021, more NFTs were traded in 24 hours than in the entirety of 2020.

 

In the crypto space, hype is definitely par for the course. But this feels different mainly because the mainstream hasn’t just taken notice. They have skin in the game— from fashion brands like Nike and Louis Vitton to sports brands  NBA/ NFL, to musicians like Kings of Leon and Grimes. They all are putting their hats in the NFT-ring, creating NFT-based consumer goods and services.

 

So are NFTs the future? Or is the NFT craze just a bubble stemming from increased online activity following the pandemic?

 

Well the good team at YAP have investigated the topic and we are here to give you the facts, so you can better understand what NFTs are, and decide if you want to get involved or just let it be another crypto trend you let pass by and fade away.

#114: Eliminate Toxic Thoughts with Dr. Caroline Leaf
01:16:06

Did you know that the Mind and the Brain are two separate things?! 

 

In this episode, we are chatting with Dr. Caroline Leaf, a best-selling author and cognitive neuroscientist. Since the early 1980s, Dr. Caroline has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input.

 

Dr. Leaf is also the best-selling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and many more. She teaches at academic, medical and neuroscience conferences, churches, and to various audiences around the world. She is also involved in the global ECHO movement, which trains physicians worldwide on the mind-brain-body connection, mental health and how to avoid physician burnout. 

 

In this episode, we discuss how Dr. Caroline first started working with the brain and the mind, why she chose to focus on the mind, and the unique aspects of it. We’ll also chat about the differences between the brain and the mind, how the mind and soul are connected, the physical impact toxic thoughts have on your brain, and Dr. Caroline’s advice on how it’s possible to heal with your mind instead of medication. This conversation got deep and uncovered so many things I never knew about what our minds are capable of - you definitely want to listen in!

#112: Overcoming Trauma with Holocaust Survivor, Dr. Edith Eger
01:09:35

Hear From Holocaust Survivor and Psychologist, Dr. Edith Eger! 

 

In this episode, we are chatting with Dr. Edith Eger, a best-selling author, psychologist, and survivor of the Holocaust. In 1944, she was taken to Auschwitz as a teenager and separated from her parents, who were taken to the gas chamber. Surviving on her bravery and imagination, she was able to stay alive until American soldiers liberated the camp. She went on to move to America and received a Bachelors of Psychology as well as a Doctorate.

 

Dr. Eger is a prolific author and a member of several professional associations. She has a clinical practice in La Jolla, California, and holds a faculty appointment at the University of California, San Diego. She has appeared on numerous television programs including CNN and the Oprah Winfrey Show, and was the primary subject of a holocaust documentary that appeared on Dutch National Television. 

 

In today’s episode, we chat about Edith’s shot at competing in the Olympics as a teenager, her horrifying experience during the Holocaust, how her mental strength helped her survive. We’ll also chat more about how you can use your imagination to protect yourself, how to conquer traumatic experiences, why the label ‘victim’ shouldn’t be used, and Dr. Edith’s best tips to move forward from trauma and guilt. This is such a sobering and insightful episode that you definitely do not want to miss!

#YAPLive: Breaking Into The Tech Industry Career Panel on Clubhouse
01:53:15

How can you break into the tech industry and land a successful career doing something that you love?

 

Today on the show Hala is joined by industry experts, top recruiters and career coaches to discuss how you can more effectively land those interviews in the tech field, and how you can blow them away during that interview. 

 

The tech industry has been strong over the last several years: IT unemployment continues to shrink, salaries inch higher each year and innovation continues to create exciting career opportunities. In fact, a recent survey found that 86 percent of businesses have trouble finding tech talent and the gap is only getting bigger and job opportunities projected to grow 11% by 2029.

 

In this episode, Hala and friends chat about how using your personal brand can speak volumes when trying to break into the industry, and how getting used to industry language and key terms before you’re actually in the field can help give you the confidence you need.  The panel also covers how to stand out amongst a sea of resumes, ace your interview and sky rocket your career once you have your foot in the door.

Become a Selfmade Entrepreneur with Brit Morin!

 

In this episode, we are chatting with Brit Morin, founder and CEO of Brit+CO, a popular lifestyle website. Brit grew up loving arts and crafts, but after she learned how to code in teens, she traded her love of art for a career in technology and marketing -- working with huge names in Silicon Valley like Apple and Google straight after college.

#YAPSnacks: Step Up Your Self-Care in 2021 With Hala
29:36

Are you struggling with self-care?

 

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been grinding my butt off this past year.  I’ve found myself working even harder in the pandemic as I’ve been having difficulty separating work from home. I’ve really been neglecting my self-care, and I know I’m not alone.

 

It’s so important to make sure you take good care of your body, mind, and soul everyday, not just when you get sick. Learning how to master your environment, create a routine, eat right, reduce stress, exercise regularly, and take a time-out when you need it are touchstones of self-care that can help you stay healthy, happy, and productive. 

 

Practicing self-care isn’t always easy.  Me-time is usually last on the agenda. And we can sometimes feel guilty about taking the time required to take care of ourselves.  

 

While getting started with self-care can be challenging, hopefully this #YAPSnacks episode leaves you inspired to take on more you-time this coming 2021.

Did you know that only 13% of adults actually think and behave like "adults" ?

#13: Growth Hacker Marketing Secrets with Josh Fechter
57:48

The internet and evolution of traditional products has given rise to a new discipline in marketing called 'growth hacking' or "growth hacker marketing." Products are no longer just physical things, they are software products like apps, platforms and podcasts that have the potential of spreading themselves and playing a role in their own adoption. Growth hackers understand this power of virality, and use a combination of marketing, analytics and engineering to acquire and engage users—with the ultimate goal of users becoming brand advocates themselves.

A growth hacker is a creative rule breaker. They must continually think of new and innovative ways to drive growth. They are masters in things like social media, blogging, A/B testing, copy wiring, UI/UX, automation, email marketing, SEO and more. While this might sound similar to a digital marketer, the main difference is that digital marketing is focused on brand and positioning, while growth hacking is all about testing and perfecting different tactics and strategies to achieve one thing and one thing only—GROWTH!

In this episode, Hala interviews Josh Fechter, CEO and founder of BAMF (Badass Marketers & Founders), a growth marketing agency and exclusive Facebook community with over 30,000 members. Josh is the former head of growth for several venture-backed companies who rose to fame this year on LinkedIn by starting a viral storytelling trend that broke the professional social media network's algorithm.

Growth hacking is not just a 2018 buzz phrase. Tune in to learn how Josh overcame early career failures, unlocked growth hacking secrets, and became one of the top growth marketing influencers in the world.

#12: Unlocking the Power of Sleep With Daniel Gartenberg
40:22

Millennials are known to be the "always tired" generation. Everyone under the age of 40 seems to be exhausted. And for good reason— we're working longer hours, taking on second jobs and side hustles, dealing with more competitive environments, glued to screens and phones that zap our mental energy, caring for small children and the list of stressful triggers goes on and on.

In fact, we millennials wear our lack of sleep as a badge of honor. And since sleep deprivation is linked to Alzheimer's, cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes, we have created a real health crisis for ourselves! To make matters worse, poor sleep impacts us mentally; it reduces our productivity, decreases collaboration, prevents us from making good decisions and even limits our capacity for empathy and humor.

Needless to say, it's time we millenials unlocked the power of sleep! To do this, we've invited Dr. Daniel Gartenberg on the show, a leading sleep scientist who has dedicated the past 10 years helping people get a better night’s rest through his sleep coaching consultancy and innovative  apps.

Tune in to learn the function of sleep, how much and how often we should sleep, tips to get better rest, the best ways to nap, why we dream and more.
