Career Woman To Entrepreneur – How to make the switch!

Many career women dream of owning their own business. Even though they have become successful at their current role, they find themselves ready to move on.

It all starts when she starts to become bored and unfulfilled. Her work is too easy for her now but she feels stuck and doesn’t know how to move forward.

(Listen above to incredible interview to learn how to take the leap with expert Carrie Sechel)

She wants to do more in life. Deep down she feels she has a calling of that she’s meant to do more?

So she allows herself to dream, she dreams of taking the leap into entrepreneurship… but then logic kicks and fear kicks in….”it’s just too many risks attached to it.”

The dreaming stops… she talks herself into staying where she is, as she has a good wage, security and works for a big company, a trusted brand “Surely I should be happy what that?”

Oh did I mentioned the overwhelming feeling that she can’t move on especially if she has children, “how irresponsible is that of me”, the guilt kicks in.

So she squashes her dream along with that little inner voice that wants more in life down and continues on building someone else’s dream and not her own.

Carrie Sechel, the author of Base Jump specialises in helping you take the leap from employee to entrepreneurship in a way that is sustainable and scalable.

In this interview Carrie shares about how to pivot successfully, and what is happening when you want to pivot but can’t.

About Carrie Sechel:

Business Consultant, Speaker, and Best-selling Author

When I was 7 years old, a beautician asked me how I’d like my hair cut. My answer? Like Tom Browkaw! Then I begged my parents to buy me a suit dress.

Like you, I had this sense that I was meant to do something amazing with my life. Hair like the guy I watched tell me about world events and a dress like the people I saw doing important things, was my first step.

Before creating my business, I spent the first 18-years of my career in big public accounting firms. During this time, I mentored and consulted with hundreds of professionals and businesses, and for the last 7 of those 18 years, I was a partner at Deloitte.

I always knew I’d start a business, at some point. But I struggled, and my fear of lea

ving Deloitte was so great that I nearly broke down before I finally decided to move on. It was so hard to break away from the vision of success that I had been raised to believe.

How did I redefine success for myself and build a thriving entrepreneurial consulting business and write a bestselling book within two years of leaving Deloitte?

I connected my knowledge and experiences to my passions to find my real why, got clear on the life I want to live, and aligned my business vision with my life vision. Now I’m driven to help others do the same.

As a consultant, speaker, and author, I help accomplished but unfulfilled professionals break free of everyone else’s definitions of success and use their authentic ambition to build thriving purpose-driven businesses and lives they love.

I have an undergraduate degree in Accounting from Kent State University, a Juris Doctor from The University of Akron School of Law, and a Master Degree in Tax from The University of Akron.

My husband, Son, and I call Amherst, OH home, but we’re self-proclaimed travel addicts and you can often find us exploring the world, near and far.

Kill Sugar Cravings with Essential Oils

Imagine if you can kill a craving in 3 mins flat!

In fact yesterday after this interview I had a sugar craving; I walked to my cupboard and opened it up looking to see what I have in there to feed it…and then out of the side of my eye I see my lemon essential oil.

Believe me when I say this that I sooo wanted the chocolate that is hidden at the top of my cupboard BUT  I thought well let’s see if Dr Mariza is right and lemon essential oil can cure my sugar craving.

So I placed a drop on my tongue, closed the cupboard door and walked off.

Only now writing this did I realise Holly sh*t it worked…even better I totally forgot I wanted the chocolate. No mental battle…NOTHING! 

Even though I have used essential oils for many years but not to cure a sugar cravings.

I noticed that there has been a big BUZZ around essential oils lately; so I decided to bring Dr Marzia Synders on the show today to give us the lowdown on essential oils (she shares some crazy mind blowing stuff!!!!)

Today we lift the lid on the  whole essential oils world; how they work, why they work.

I stumbled across essential oils 17 years ago; I had the weakest lungs, I continually suffered from asthma with continual bouts of bronchitis a couple of times a year. I was introduced to the powers of peppermint oil and since that day I never used an asthma spray or had bronchitis ever again….NEVER!

Dr Mariza Synders  shares how our stress hormones are linked to our sugar cravings and how we can vanish them in under 3 mins flat simply by sniffing a peppermint or lemon oil.

Essential oils are powerful organic constitutes that speak directly to our molecules, hence the positive immediate impact & effects. 

This Woman is phenomenal to listen to you’re going to LOVE LOVE LOVE her!

Check out what we cover in today interview:

  • Craving are from one of three things: Stress, Fatigue or an emotional concern. 
  • How cortisol dictates EVERYTHING….thyroid, liver, muscles, mood
    How to break up with sugar…its starts with breaking up with stress. 
  • Women trying to be everything to everyone; and why our adrenals are getting out of whack.
  • Dr Mariza shares the clutch the pearls moments
  • The importance of the role of essential oils on our limbic system and hypothalamus  

Dr Mariza shares three out of this world recipes for Essential Oils:
