Description:

This week I am speaking with Elizabeth Sumner Wafler. Elizabeth is a former school teacher, an aspiring women’s fiction author, and an editorial and writing coach.

Let me read you a snippet from her website:

As an evocative writer, I bring strong images, memories, or feelings to mind. You will find my work filled with vivid metaphors, unique prose, and detailed descriptions that make you feel part of the scene. And alliteration. I go gaga over glorious alliteration. That's the kind of book I enjoy reading myself. My stories will always involve friendship and a love interest for my main character. You'll find swoon-worthy love scenes, but the sex will be "behind closed doors." You will find conflict at every turn, tension on most pages, and "cliffhangery" scene and chapter enders. I hope my overall style pleases and resonates with you and further deepens your reading experience.

I enjoy working with other writers through my freelance editorial business Four Eyes Editorial. I live with my husband and cairn terrier in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where I can be found reading on my screened porch, at a yoga class, at a farmer’s market in search of the perfect heirloom tomato, or at one of the area’s vineyards, enjoying a glass of Virginia wine.

This week I am speaking with my good friend John Tarnoff. I have had John on the podcast in episodes 208, 152, and 120. John has been the most frequent guest on the podcast in the 4 and 1/2 years I have been producing this podcast.

I consider John Tarnoff to be a peer, colleague, and friend. John specializes in helping those in the 2nd half of life reinvent themselves. In 2017, he published his book, Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Career. Here is a snippet from his website:

After my startup went bust, I decided to go back to school to earn a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology – a branch of behavioral psychology that focuses on self-responsibility and self-forgiveness as pathways to healing and change. I didn’t think that I wanted to become a psychologist but I hoped to learn more about myself, what my strengths and weaknesses were, and what lessons I needed to learn to move forward.

Now, fifteen years later, as a career coach, author, and speaker, my mission is to support professionals over fifty to redefine, build and sustain second-act careers beyond traditional retirement. I’ve created a more personal-growth approach to career development, vs the traditional HR skills-based paradigm – starting with the notion that your ideal second-act career is already inside you.

John recently wrote a blog post that really impressed me called, Adopt a Career Growth Mindset and Never Think of Yourself as “Unemployed”.

In this episode, we will be discussing the content of that post.

This week I am speaking with Diana Wu David who is the author of Future Proof: Reinventing Work in an Age of Acceleration.

Let me read you her about section on LinkedIn:

I am a former Financial Times executive, author of Future Proof: Reinventing Work in an Age of Acceleration, and an adjunct professor at Columbia Business School’s EMBA Global Asia. I started out my career working on high-level strategy as a management consultant and as an assistant to Dr. Henry Kissinger at Kissinger Associates in New York.

I work with global leaders, companies, and boards to enhance their ability to adapt, contribute, collaborate and grow.  I am privileged to have consulted with or spoken to clients including the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, the World Bank, Expedia, Randstad, and Credit Suisse.

I write about the future of work for publications including Fast Company, Inc and Thrive and speak globally on the future of work, corporate governance and boards, and East-West issues.

This week I am speaking with my two friends Ryan Rhoten and Andy Foote. Ryan is a brand specialist with CareerBrand and Andy is an Advanced LinkedIn Strategy coach with LinkedInInsights.com.  Together they are the co-authors of the book LinkedIn Made Simple – Fat Strategies in a Thin Book.

I have had both Ryan and Andy on the podcast previously. Ryan in episode 42 and Andy in episode 191.

This will be a bit of a long episode and I thought about cutting out some of the dialogue but there is so much good material here that I did not want to cut out anything.
