Struggling with what to do next in your work and life? Need a podcast with honest realtalk (the good + the bad) so you know you’re not alone? And want strategies to get out of your own way?

Your host, Elaine Lou Cartas, a first-generation Filipino immigrant, is an award-winning Business and Executive Career Coach for women of color and allies. Elaine is like you - she’s been fired 3x, quit 2 jobs, changed careers 3x, and been in debt. Elaine’s success story? She’s always done what’s true to herself and wants you to know it’s possible too. She’s a former grassroots organizer, and nonprofit fundraiser.

LA Weekly awarded Elaine as the #1 Thought Leader to follow, MSN recognized her as the Best Leadership & Executive Coach, and Apple News featured her as one of the top 5 business coaches to follow. Elaine also has 2 courses with LinkedIn.

On the WOC and Allies: Business and Career Realtalk™ Podcast (formerly known as the Color Your Dreams podcast), Elaine reminds you that your definition of happiness in work and life can continuously evolve. Elaine's podcast guests include team members, clients, friends, and even family members who discuss real challenges and how they honored their own voices. As a business owner and career leader, this podcast is here to help you build a life around what you want in this current season of life. So bring your coffee, tea, or boba for some realtalk every other Thursday! @elainelou_ // www.elainelou.com
