Welcome to Episode 141 of Building My Legacy. 

In this podcast, we talk with career coach Mandy Tucker who works with executives in the workplace — especially women — who want to move up the leadership ladder. She also mentors university students and graduates, helping shape their careers. Mandy believes that for too long it has been extremely difficult for women — especially women of color — to move upwards. She also thinks that too many people don’t recognize the opportunities available to them and fail to identify their passions. Mandy shares with us how she helps people set goals and map out a future — even if it involves balancing a nine-to-five job with the dream of entrepreneurship.

So if you want to know:

  • The importance of knowing where to position yourself
  • Why you shouldn’t feel pressured to take a position that doesn’t fit your values or your passions
  • How to map your career path — and the importance of doing so
  • Why you should congratulate yourself on the “small wins”
  • The four elements of a great career
  • How fear can help you strive
