Jody Maberry’s Adventure: Financial Analyst, Park Ranger, Podcast Entrepreneur (E.017)

podcast Jul 08, 2022

In this episode, you get to meet someone who, unknowingly, connected me to so many people that have had a big impact on my work and how I have found purpose. 

Jody Maberry began his career as a Financial Analyst then went to work for the National Park Service and ended up hosting and producing podcasts for former Disney Parks leaders and has interviewed countless entrepreneurs.

He unpacks how an opportunity was created after interviewing former VP of Disney World Lee Cockerell turned into a whole new career for him, and how the COVID-19 Pandemic opened up more doors for Jody and his clients.  But you may be surprised he still aspires to be back as a leader in a park service.

Lauren Johnson’s Adventure: College Soccer, Sports Psychology, Mental Performance Coach (E.016)

podcast Jun 26, 2022

In this episode, you get to meet Lauren Johnson. I met Lauren at the Brand You Live event in Denver, Colorado in April 2022 through Mike Kim.  

Lauren thought she would get into Physical Therapy coming out of high school. Still, when a career-ending soccer injury happened, gaining her fifth concussion,  she discovered that the body is not the only thing that needs therapy after an injury.  The mental health challenges around athletic injuries can be challenging for athletes to recover from.

She prided herself on executing the right things as a player and takes that mentality into her profession. The characteristics that made her a good soccer player: work ethic, attention to detail, and ability to learn at a high level translate very well to the real world.

Those traits took her to the New York Yankees as a mental performance coach before she launched into leading her own company.

Bari Richter’s Adventure: Casino Management, Sign Business Owner and an Ultimate Connector (E.015)

podcast Jun 21, 2022

In this episode, I get to introduce you to someone who has been key in expanding the network of people I know, Bari Richter. Bari had aspirations for vet school but found that the academic path wasn’t for her, but on her way to finding her sweet spot in helping business owners, she studied psychology and business.

In that Career Adventure, she found the traits she looked for in hiring people was an overall good attitude, but they needed to be willing to learn, contribute and be a team player.  If that was the case, they would be successful under her leadership.

We learn about her path into the Casino business and out of it, that is when she found where she is supposed to be, and it includes networking for others, not just for herself.

Tara McFarland’s Adventure: Civil Engineer, Geological Engineering, Dam Engineer

podcast Jun 13, 2022

In this episode, we talk to a former engineer now turned coach, that found her way to helping others now after having some great experiences in a very technical profession. However, she learned that technical skills do not prepare you for leadership roles as you climb the company ladder.

We will listen to Tara’s account of how others had plans and ideas for her life that she followed. From being told to be an engineer because she was good at math and the path that took.

She did find purpose in her work overseeing many Dams in the western part of the US, but she wondered if she was an imposter or fraud when she was placed in some roles.  She had to act qualified to do them, not for others, but for herself.

A feeling that many of us tend to have in our professions.

Alvin Cowan’s Adventure: Ivy League QB, Actor, Writer, Producer

podcast Jun 06, 2022

Meet Alvin Cowan is the guest on this episode, and it was great to meet him through a mutual connection and to hear his Career Adventure from being a quarterback at Yale and not wanting to follow the “usual’ path of those alumni to work on Wall Street or for a U.S. Senator. He still had NFL aspirations, but that didn’t pan out for him.

That took him to Romania and Eastern Europe where he discovered an interest in show producing through some questionable business practices that sent him to California to pursue acting, although he had no previous experience.

Once he was able to take off the “armor” his acting coach told him he had, he found some traction in that work and even shot a scene in the Clint Eastwood movie American Sniper with Bradley Cooper.

As with football, he found acting was a passion he had, but he found a real purpose in the work behind the camera in the writer's room.  

He has had recent success with his podcast American...

This is a treat for me, as I get to bring one of my career mentors in broadcasting, Bill Jordan, on the podcast.  I met bill in 1996 when I interned for Bill & Sheri in the Morning on Mix 101.5 in Raleigh, North Carolina.  That experience took me away from Iowa to face reality on my own.
