Today we have the extreme pleasure of talking with Andy Zook of the band "Bears & Other Carnivores." Andy also has a podcast. It's called "Bad at Parties" and I know you'll love it too. I also know you'll love today's chat because we're covering topics like how to put yourself out there as an artist, how to reconcile the fact that you're probably doing things wrong, how to be wrong and still stay listening to your audience. and we also dive into a topic that is near and dear to me: advocacy and art.

046: Leadership Lessons from Authoritarianism, the Pursuit of Sustainability, and JOSHUA SPODEK

046: Leadership Lessons from Authoritarianism, the Pursuit of Sustainability, and JOSHUA SPODEK

Today we get to talk with Joshua Spodek. I was super excited to jump into this conversation because Joshua is an Adjunct Professor at NYU, leadership coach and workshop leader for Columbia Business School, columnist for Inc., founder of Spodek Academy, and author of the book "Leadership Step by Step." He holds five Ivy League degrees, including a PhD in Astrophysics and an MBA, and studied under a Nobel Prize winner. He helped build an X-ray observational satellite for NASA, co-founded and led as CEO or COO several ventures, and holds six patents. Joshua has visited North Korea twice, swam across the Hudson River, and has done burpees every day for six years and counting. You're gonna need to buckle up for this conversation because Joshua and I jump directly into the deep water of asking the question how do we change the world as leaders. We discuss why facts don't help, why guilt is not the answer, and why authoritarianism is equally ineffective for changing the world.

This week I was asked to write an article for Teach Well all about setting difficult boundaries.

When you're putting yourself out there, things can get scary and overwhelming. But one of the best "mantras" I've adopted in the last several months is this: I have helpers.

So that's what we talk about on today's peep show mini episode of Bare Naked Bravery: All my favorite go-to sources to find my helpers!

ps008: It's My Birthday & I'll Cry If I Want To

ps008: It's My Birthday & I'll Cry If I Want To

This week is my birthday. I will be 31 years old. I cannot imagine what my life would look like if I dropped out of school to get married at the age of 8.

To honor the education and experience I've been granted in my 31 years, I'm donating $31 every month this year to speakupforthepoor.org -- They serve over 1100 girls in 26 villages, helping them stay in school and out of child marriage, and they fund more than 20 girls removed from brothels in Bangladesh.

There is no greater human rights issue than the way we treat girls in poverty. They deserve to be heard, to be educated, to have options, to have dreams.

If you are inspired by the work I do and want to celebrate 31 years of living bravely with me, then I challenge YOU to sponsor a girl's education for $31/month.

Let's make it happen. Let's transform these girls into what we know they can be, perhaps things they don't yet have permission to dream about...

Visit speakupforthepoor.org to begin your own sponsorship of bravery.

028: Child Rape, Recovering Safety & Speaking Truth with Marie Schaeller

028: Child Rape, Recovering Safety & Speaking Truth with Marie Schaeller

Marie Schaeller is an author from eastern Pennsylvania hoping to raise awareness of child sexual abuse in our communities and what we can do about it. Her first book is titled "Breaking the Chains of Silence" and is just one facet of these efforts to advocate for victims of this tragedy which unfortunately occurs in every community. In her own community, Marie has assisted in attempts to get the Pennsylvania House Bill 1947 passed. This bill would stop allowing predators to get a "time out" of justice, which as Marie explains later, would greatly benefit child victims later in life.
