In light of the College Admissions Scandal a few months ago, Elisa Camahort Page shares her experience in college and how where she went didn’t really matter that much.
Thanks for coming!

You have marvelous ideas in your brain. How you think to get to those ideas is also part of your genius. If you're not sharing your "how," you might be missing out on opportunities for big magic.
Joanna's celebrating her big 5-0! And she's giving herself the gift of going all out and "taking it off."
When you praise your top performers for their ability to get sh*t done, you're doing it with the best intentions. But is your message truly setting them up for success?
Elizabeth Gilbert thinks we mix up our ideas about work. To her, hobby, job, career, and vocation are different things we flow in and out of through our journey. But is this the same thing as "choosing your own adventure?"
It's important to remain in dialogue with yourself about your genuine abilities, your untapped skills, and to notice when you might need a push.
I know someone who pulled off asking for a near half-million dollar bonus. How'd she do it?
The word “can’t” has never stopped me. And I don’t want it to stop you, either. However you choose to pursue your goals and dreams, I wish you all the ladybadassery you need.
Descriptors like "dedicated," "enthusiastic," and "problem solver" are ok but not unique to you. Joanna gives two tips on finding your awesome words.
A conversation with Joanna alters the course of a job search and reminds us the importance of being authentic.
A simple Facebook memory notification reminded me how a crazy idea can change my life in ways that I could never have imaged.
I took a job even with a thousand red flags waving madly in my face. Spoiler alert. I did it anyway.
When working with clients, Joanna asks them to do something they've never done before, to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. We forget how much we suck at things at the beginning and going from not knowing to knowing something is half the fun. Try something new and practice!
We’ve all heard the advice: Set achievable, measurable goals. Reward yourself along the way as motivation. But who decides on the reward? I know the simple answer is “You do.” I’m not sure that’s correct.
“The reason for my success was in doing 10% more. 10% more than anyone else, 10% more than anyone expected. 10% more.”
Joanna reminisces about advice from her grandfather about working smarter, solving problems, and going beyond what is expected. Just 10% more can make an enormous difference.
Joanna admits that she talks to herself and thinks you should too. Drown out that inner critic with the strength of your own voice.
Joanna takes Dave Ramsey's Snowball Method and turns it around. Instead of reducing debt, Joanna explains how to take a nerve-wracking project - the promotion of your awesomeness - and break it down into smaller, more manageable parts. Each step is banishing the judgment monster just a little bit more. Each step, you are braver, self-confident, able to continue and confront bigger challenges you never imagined possible.
What was expected to be a very low-key, traditional New Years ended up being a bit of a rescue mission to Ushuaia, Argentina. Ever one to turn a terrible situation into a good one, Joanna found herself hiking in the Tierra del Fuego National Park on New Year’s day. On one hike, she mused about leadership style coming up with hike-inspired titles: 1) Map Maker, 2) Blaze Guide, and 3) Trail Maker. Understanding these styles allows you to understand what kind of people I need to surround yourself with to traverse this enormous forest called life.
To make the move to the executive mindset, you need to change your focus from taking orders to developing strategy. The more senior you become, the more you are brought in for your ideas rather than what you can do. Articulating how you think is probably more important than what you do. Joanna says this can be done by taking the classroom technique of showing your work.
Joanna is on a mission to promote you as a unique individual, not a data set. She throws out some massive numbers to shine a light on the automation of resume searching. However, the solution can be found at the beginning of the job process, not in the search.
