#Thrive Thursday: Meet Marie-Reine Seshie, Head of Marketing

thrive thursday Dec 03, 2020

 

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

To make a long story short: three things. Hard-working, open-mindedness, and having a support system. 

I have always been very determined, hardworking, and eager to do things for myself - even from a very young age. I believed If I put in the hard work, then God would make me flourish. So wherever I found myself, I gave it a 101%, regardless of what it was. 

Here's an example: when I finished my MBA, I interviewed for a job as a company's Head of Marketing. During the interview process, my interviewer made it known that I did not have the level of experience they needed for the role, but he could see how passionate and motivated I was. So: he was willing to take me on in a three-month internship period, and if I did well, I could be promoted to the Head of Growth. I would be given a stipend, not even close to a quarter of what I was expecting to earn after my MBA. Some people told...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet EB Sanders, Career Coach For Creative Types

thrive thursday Nov 26, 2020

What is your story?

I spent 12 years as a Humanities Professor at several fantastic colleges here in the Bay Area, teaching courses like ‘The History of Creativity.’ 

I loved my job. Capital "L" love, but as I'm sure you know, education/academia is not a cash cow, so I scrimped, saved, worked weird little jobs in the cracks between classes to make ends meet, but it all finally came to a head when my options were a) move across the country for a tenure track position and be struggling slightly less financially (only now in a place far from home) OR b) find a new career.

Once I came to terms with the fact that I really, yes really, had to pay the landlady, I fully pivoted into creative recruiting and staffing, where I racked up almost 10 years of experience. Was it "love" the way I loved teaching? Not quite (you only get one first love), but I really dug my gig. What I especially loved was directly helping women with their career development - I loved that part so...

How to Expand Your Business and Retain Control

business Nov 23, 2020

As women in business, we always have the opportunity to learn something when it comes to leading and succeeding in the business world. And every owner wants to expand their business in the future. However, there's a risk of losing control and failing that comes with scaling. So this article will review some tips that you can use to expand your business while keeping it under control.

Fixing Your Cost Structure

Before anything else, you will need to assess your business’ cost structure. The expansion comes with additional costs like new machinery or a new location. Being blindsided by expansion costs could hurt your company. Finding a way to lower your operating costs frees up cash, allowing your business to grow and stabilize. You can cut costs by eliminating low-earning products or low-performing services, or by improving your inventory turnover through new marketing and sales tactics. However, you also must be careful not to cut costs in a way...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Christelyn Karazin, The Pink Pill Franchise

thrive thursday Nov 19, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I like to say that I am the most perfectly imperfect coach. I have used my own foibles, miss-steps, and teachable moments and turned them into usable advice for my audience to benefit from in all areas of their lives, from relationships to career. Through my own journey, gaining multiple certifications in personal development and consulting with various experts, I developed the first comprehensive self-empowerment series of courses created specifically for Black women. Whether through geography or self-segregation, many of us are not exposed to important social, romantic, and professional skills and opportunities, which has historically limited us. My courses undo many faulty programming that has sabotaged too many of us when we should be winning. Everything from how far we feel we deserve to get in life, to who we feel we can marry, to what activities we can partake in and what opportunities are...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Ariela Esquenazi, Founder Ariela & Assoc Intl

thrive thursday Nov 12, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I came to NYC as a sculpting student. When I realized that I probably wouldn’t be able to support my family with a sculptor’s salary, I knew I had to switch gears. At 19 years old, I started working as an assistant in the underwear business and moved into sales. As a salesperson, I needed to really believe in what I was selling, so I insisted on designing everything I pitched. At 21, I got to work on my first business plan. Six years later, with just $15,000, Ariela & Associates was born. 

My father was a rabbi, and my mother was embarrassed to tell the congregation what I did. She said, “When will you make real clothing so I can tell people what you do?” I said, “When I master this.” Over 25 years later, I’m still perfecting my craft and continuously looking ahead to how we can aim to be better.

Strong companies are built through incredible leadership. Leadership is a practice and requires continuous development. Companies who want their business plan to become a clear reality must have a strong Talent Strategy. 

Talent Strategies include culture, workflow clarity, leadership development & coaching, futuristic talent pipeline planning, and consistent accountability. 

If you are a leader of an organization, get passionate about your Talent Strategy. 

 

In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community? 

18 years ago, I bought a little house in a transitional neighborhood in Dallas, Texas. Little did I know the home would introduce me to the world of historic preservation, volunteerism, and community activism. Over the years, I have participated in countless committees to improve our neighborhood's way of life and protect our historic structures. I’ve held the role of neighborhood president for the last...
