THE POWER OF REINVENTION with Kathi Sharpe-Ross
How do you create that space where you feel safe to speak your voice? In this episode, you'll pick up some reinvention and life advice and tips from a brilliant woman. Tami Holzman is an author, a founder and investor, a producer, and advisor and a veteran of the marketing and business and finance worlds who has pivoted and reinvented over and over as a true entrepreneur extraordinaire. Tami began her career in the entertainment industry as a talent agent, show creator and executive producer with development deals at NBC, HBO and 20th Century Fox. Today, she's an LP and advisor with Halogen Ventures, a corporate advisor, executive coach, and motivational speaker. Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation: How to hone the craft of having a voice and feeling safe in your space The necessity of seeking mentorship The hallmark of emotional intelligence How to overcome imposter syndrome How to Hone The Craft of Having a Voice and Feeling Safe in Your Space First, figure out how to start making connections with people. Often, men will take a job and they will already be building their alliances and who they need to meet to get the promotion – and they just landed at the job. Women, on the contrary, focus on how good of a job they're doing. While women are still hoping to be noticed, men are already vocalizing their next steps. Women aren't necessarily vocalizing that because they're waiting to be noticed for the incredible job they're doing. And so, women also need to learn how to brag graciously as well as build a community of people within their industry and within their own companies. The Power of Mentorship Mentors are a necessity. They come in different shapes and sizes. They could be the typical, old people, But they could also be as young as 18 years old. We don't all go to the same people for the same problems. That's why it's very important to acknowledge that. Then pick five people, and realize where they're going to add the most value. And then they'll also cross over as well. Self-awareness is the hardest part of your success path that's why EQ is crucial. The hallmark of emotional intelligence and how you become the master of influence in anything you do is understanding how other people perceive you. If you're a leader, you should be empathetic. If you're not empathetic, people are going to be too intimidated to bring you the problems or things are falling short and they're gonna sweep it under the carpet. How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome “My road is always under construction. Journey is the key. The destination is me.” Understand what your superpowers are because that's what translates into any industry. You could take on anything if you really understand what you do best and what excites you. Our scars give us a reason to succeed, and it's our perfections that give us a reason to fail. Our purpose is so much more important than the fear we're feeling. If you let that take over, then you're not doing your job. Our biggest judge and biggest critic is you – and not everyone else.

Wonder Podcast: Empowering Women Entrepreneurs to Change the World
Tami Holzman, first-time author of the best-selling book "From C-Student to the C-Suite" joins Kalika Yap on this episode of Wonder podcast to share her story of being a "C" student to a successful author, angel investor, and women entrepreneurship advocate. Tune in to the latest episode of Wonder podcast! Timestamped Show notes 01:00 Kalika Yap introduces today’s guest, Tami Holzman. 01:25 Tami Holzman recalls being an average student and having Harvard as her dream school. 02:02 She wrote her book “From C-student to C-suite” from a humorous perspective as there is a lack of fresh approaches to business guides and relationship-building. 02:30 She encountered an article from Forbes magazine that said 85% of getting business is because of emotional intelligence, which inspired her to write about her insecurities instead of her successes. 04:34 Tami describes herself as a perfect 7, better than average but far from perfect, and there's room for improvement. 05:10 The journey of writing the book was very hard because she had to evaluate the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of herself. Tami used to be very critical of herself so writing the book was quite therapeutic for her. 07:00 She remembers a time where she thought of herself as a failure because a company she built became a failure. She was so engrossed in the company that it felt it was her identity, an extension of herself and she took the failure very personally. 11:22 Tami talks about her beginnings in the entertainment business as a talent agent, to when she landed a role in the male-dominated space of sports. 17:51 Tami’s last mentor was her 18-year old intern. She believes that mentors come from all walks of life and that you can learn from anyone and everyone. 21:00 Having great relationship skills and understanding people is just as valuable as getting an A in school. Emotional intelligence is a much better standard to predict career success. 22:49 The hallmark of emotional intelligence is self-awareness. Being able to understand who you are is really important and also being able to understand how other people perceive you. 24:20 The stronger your relationships are with people, the more you'll benefit. The weaker your relationships are the harder it is to get your point across. Key Takeaways You don’t need to be perfect to be successful. Showing vulnerability is a strength. If you're not being vulnerable, you're not taking chances. Women should invest more, especially in other women, to create more opportunities.
