Professional Organizer Shares Tips for Keeping Your Small Space Organized I E33 Lucy Milligan Wahl

Professional Organizer Shares Tips for Keeping Your Small Space Organized I E33 Lucy Milligan Wahl

April 26, 2021

Description:

One of the best experiences of my 20s has been living on my own. Sure, I have to buy my own groceries and dirty dishes aren’t going to magically disappear, but moving out of my parent’s house gave me the challenge to start figuring things out on my own.

One thing I do really miss about mom and dad’s is all of the space in their house. My tiny apartment doesn’t compete with my parent’s spacious, midwest suburban home. There is no garage or basement let alone a spare kitchen cabinet for any excess stuff. This has forced me to live smaller and stay organized.

If you’re someone who believes you’re “not an organized person”, my guest is going to change that mindset. Joining me today is Lucy Milligan Wahl, Founder of LMW Edits.

After completing her MBA and wanting a career change, Lucy asked her friends what she was good at. The common answer? Organizing. Lucy ran with that idea and started her own boutique professional organizing company where she provides common sense organizing solutions to modern urban living.

By listening to this episode, you’ll get advice on managing paper in a digital world, creating a system to keep your bathroom organized, solving the Tupperware crisis, and more.

 

Show Notes:

[4:36] Is organization a personality trait or a skill?

[11:03] Maximizing your closest space

[15:06] Creating separation between your bedroom and home office

[20:32] Organization solutions for the bathroom

[24:57] Solving the Tupperware crisis

[30:18] Dealing with parents that give you too much stuff

[38:28] Staying organized while living with others

 

Favorite Quotes:

[4:44] There really isn’t such a thing as an organized person. Being organized isn’t a personality trait. When someone says they aren’t an organized person, what they really mean is that they don’t know how to organize their space.”

[8:37] “Clutter and disorganization just zaps all of your nonrenewable resources like your time.”

[28:45] “I can’t create an organizing system without context. That is just putting stuff in containers and labeling it. That’s not organizing.”

Career Consultant Demonstrates How to Be a Self-Advocate at Work | E32 Stephanie Ritz

Career Consultant Demonstrates How to Be a Self-Advocate at Work | E32 Stephanie Ritz

April 12, 2021

I think I’m safe to make an overgeneralization that, at one point or another, we’ve all felt undervalued at work. Maybe we believe we should be paid more, be given more responsibility, or have a more significant title. But believing it doesn’t get us very far. How do we actually get what we want?

 

Today’s guest believes it starts by becoming a self-advocate. She’s going to explain how to get the confidence to do just that without coming off as bragging or boasting.

 

Stephanie Ritz is a career consultant and mindset transformation coach. She founded Claim Your Career where she helps professional women rise faster, earn what they’re worth, and claim their seat at the table with confidence.

 

Stephanie gives tons of great advice throughout our conversation. My favorite was creating a living resume to record and organize your skills and accomplishments. This is just one of many goodies she shares.

 

Show Notes:

[6:16] How Stephanie found her place within the banking industry

[8:11] Motherhood: how that changed the plan but not the goal

[16:38] Building relationships with the leaders at your employer

[27:00] An easy method for keeping track of your accomplishments and skills

[36:45] Self advocating vs boasting/bragging

 

Favorite Quotes:

[3:56] “I had no idea that was coming. Sometimes you just have to make the most out of what you have.”

[23:58] “You’re usually your own worst critic when it comes to sharing out your ideas.”

[35:44] “I didn’t care that she didn’t have a masters in Excel. She had the initiative to go out and learn what she was missing. And she got the job.”

Financial Blogger on How Happiness and Investing Your Money Can Be Congruent Goals I E31 Joel O’Leary aka 5am Joel

Financial Blogger on How Happiness and Investing Your Money Can Be Congruent Goals I E31 Joel O’Leary aka 5am Joel

March 29, 2021

Welcome to The Struggle is Real, a show for young adults looking for knowledge on issues they’ll face in their 20s that wasn’t taught in the classroom.

 

How would you feel about retiring 5, 10, even 20 years earlier than you planned? This probably raises your skeptical eyebrows but hundreds of people are doing just that through a movement called FIRE: financial independence, retire early.

 

Inside groups pursuing FIRE, it’s common to hear of a couple who retired in their mid-40s. With time, discipline, and understanding of basic financial concepts, I believe you can do this as well.

 

Joel O’Leary is here with me today to talk about his experience with FIRE and how he’s found balance with this popular movement. By listening to this episode, you’ll also hear us discuss the epiphanies Joel has had during his 3 year sabbatical, how he built and continues to grow his real estate portfolio, and why he believes happiness is a choice (along with a good story to back it up).

 

Show Notes:

[1:52] Why Joel took a sabbatical and what he has learned since quitting his job

[15:34] The impact Joel’s parents had on his financial habits

[22:34] How Joel uses real estate to create wealth

[28:59] What is FIRE and where is Joel on his journey

[39:08] Debunking common myths about FIRE

[42:52] Joel believes happiness is a choice

 

Favorite Quotes:

[6:14] “I missed like 50 paychecks in a row…$0, $0, $0. Talk about facing your fears”

[30:32] “It’s a bit of an immature mindset because they think that achieving FIRE is going to magically improve their life.”

[36:05] “I don't want to make decisions based on money anymore. It frustrates me that I have to think about how much this is going to cost me or how much this is going to make me.”

[42:19] “You can achieve financial independence on a very small salary as long as you are spending less than you are earning.”

[43:49] “I personally think happiness is a choice.”

26 Year Old Director Shares Advice on How to Quickly Rise Through the Ranks I E30 - Mason Burchette

26 Year Old Director Shares Advice on How to Quickly Rise Through the Ranks I E30 - Mason Burchette

March 15, 2021

I’m assuming the job you have now isn’t the position you want forever. Most of us hope as we learn new skills and take on more responsibilities, we will get the opportunity to move up within our company.

But why do some people seem to get the opportunity for promotions while others find themselves in the same role for years and years? My guest today believes it all starts with doing the little things right, like being dependable.

Mason Burchette started out as a Technician at Best Buy Metals making $11.50 an hour and now, 7 years later, is their Director of Marketing and Development.

Seeing his fast growth in such a short period of time, many of his friends and family started asking him for advice. Through that, he ended up writing his first book “How to Make Sure You Never Get Promoted: An Antithetical Guide to Succeeding in Your Career.”

Along with advice on getting promoted, we’ll also get into managing employees that are older than you and how to find a company that you can grow with.

 

Show Notes:

[2:07] Mason’s cancer journey and how that changed his focus in life

[13:10] What led to Mason’s quick rise through his career?

[19:57] Hiring and managing those who are older than you

[28:06] How to find a company that you can grow with

[32:52] Dependability: being dependable is the building block of getting more opportunities

[36:42] The Crush It Podcast

[44:24] What does success mean to Mason?

 

Favorite Quotes:

[4:56] “There was definitely days after work where I just sat in my car and I was like holy crap I have cancer.”

[15:14] “Get out of the road! Get the machine out of the road!...I’m quitting!”

[19:12] ‘I looked like a bag boy at the grocery store.”

[34:24] “Wise employers will look at how people are governing their personal lives and say that is how they’re going to manage company dollars, company people, company assets. We can’t afford to give them opportunities.”

[40:30] “I didn’t join a secret society that told me how to be a successful leader. I went to Barnes & Noble and bought a $23 book.”

Former NFL player on How to Start Owning Your Mistakes and Make the Change You Need | E29 Marques Ogden

Former NFL player on How to Start Owning Your Mistakes and Make the Change You Need | E29 Marques Ogden

March 1, 2021

Today’s guest is former NFL offensive lineman, Marques Ogden.

Marques played in the NFL for nearly 6 years. He was drafted in the 2003 by the Jaguars and went on to play with the Ravens, Bills, and Titans. While his NFL career ended in 2007, this was only the start of Marques’ rollercoaster life story. After leaving the NFL, he started Kayden Premier Enterprises which grew to the largest minority owned subcontractor in the state of Maryland.

Life was good until a bad business deal sent Marques’ business spiraling into bankruptcy. Marques was left with $400 to his name. He swallowed his pride and the former NFL player and 8-figure business owner took a job as an overnight janitor making $8.25 an hour.

After a rough ending to one of his shifts, Marques decided it was time to reinvent himself again but before he could do that, he needed to look back on his life choices and own the fact that his decisions, not someone else’s actions, lead him to his current life situation.

Today, Marques is two-time author, keynote speaker, executive coach, and corporate trainer.

Marques’ story is an inspiration and I hope to illustrate the power of accountability and ownership in this episode.

 

Show Notes:

[2:06] Marques’ relationship with his older brother Jonathan

[4:55] Marques’ route to the NFL

[13:21] Marques rough rebound after leaving the NFL

[16:47] The rise and fall of Kayden Premier Enterprises

[27:42] Taking responsibility for your actions

 

Favorite Quotes:

[9:27] “Wow, I’ve actually made it. I’m here. I’m going to have an opportunity to play for the National Football league.”

[18:16] “Someone in this room will become the next major minority contractor...why can’t it be you?”

[32:22] “You get told no so many times that it becomes your own mission to keep going.”

E26: Jay Williams on Commitment Issues, Taking Off the Masks, and Why Men Can’t Talk About Their Feelings

E26: Jay Williams on Commitment Issues, Taking Off the Masks, and Why Men Can’t Talk About Their Feelings

January 18, 2021

Welcome into The Sandbox, a podcast for young professionals that explores the building blocks for being successful after your 20’s.

Today’s guest is Jay Williams, the Founder of Maskless Men, an community based organization built for men to discuss the things we normally don’t get to talk about: break ups, emotions, family and parenting issues, sex, porn, the feeling of being inadequate, and more.

Jay started Maskless Men after he saw the need for men to have a place to open up, share how they’re feeling, and gain some reassurance that they aren’t alone. In this conversation, Jay will talk about his 28 years of wearing what he calls masks.

Being the good child, the agreeable and pleasing boyfriend, the tough, macho man at work, the loud, confident, funny friend. Jay decided he had enough. He became exhausted acting as a different personality depending on who he was with. He built the courage to take off the mask, go on a journey of self-discovery, and start showing up as his true authentic self.

For everyone listening to this episode, I hope you’ll begin to reflect how your upbringing may be affecting your relationships today, why showing up as your authentic self is more important than fitting in, and making a claim against outdated, harmful societal norm that men can’t express their feelings.

Show Notes:

[2:28] How Jay’s childhood influenced his commitment issues later in life

[14:55] Wearing different masks to fit into your environment

[23:57] Why can’t men talk about their feelings

[50:21] Having pride for being a male

 

Favorite Quotes:

[6:57] “I’m terrified that what happened to my mom and dad is what is going to happen to me.”

[29:21] “And he turned around and said...I want that too.”

[44:37] “When you are in your head, you’re dead.”

[53:20] “We are not our behaviors. Our behaviors are just a way of expressing what we are needing or feeling”
