Victoria Alexander - Sharing Our Magic From the Coaching Closet
Updated: Dec 2, 2021
Episode #18: Welcome to the Coaching Closet, I'm your host Richele, thank you so much for joining me. Today I am so excited because I have my bestie Victoria Alexander, host of the podcast, You Are the Magic Pill, back live in the Coaching Closet.
Ready? Listen in...
• I love so many things, I love being in this closet for one thing. So fashion is one of my things, and that's what inspired me to create the Coaching Closet. When I was going through coaching certification because, well, for one thing, I shared an office with my love and he works out of our home too, and I was like, that's not going to work when I'm doing one-on-one coaching with people and get into some pretty serious topics. And they don't want to be talking about that in front of somebody else. Yeah and he just chimes in and says, can I offer you some advise? And there like, who's that? And you say, I don't know, some random dude that's in my office. So I was like, Well, this is my favorite room in the whole house anyway.(3:05)
• That's good that you recognize it. I do, it's all about awareness and recognizing there's a problem. Yeah, I had to do that when I had to get readers, accept that my eyes were no longer perfect and I had to get readers and that was really quite... It's still challenging. You accept it, I had to get trifocals. So yeah. It's alright, I got cute ones. As long as you get cute ones and you rock it, you accept that it's going on and you just rock it out the best of your ability, then you're good. Yeah, I can do without, but I obviously see so much better with them. Yeah, definitely, it's like Christmas miracle. (10:22)
• Okay, so speaking of shopping, like who's doing Black Friday? There was Black Friday all week, there's today's small business Saturday, and then Monday is Cyber Monday. Well, this is probably going to broadcast later, but that's when we're recording it. I mean people are going crazy with their sales. They are, it's like... They have them all the time now. It was pre-Black Friday all week, and I got some really good deals before Thanksgiving. I was like, Wow, this is amazing, so I got a lot of Christmas shopping done. And if you want something, you can get a really good deals. (22:42)
• I was talking about how Victoria is one of those friends I ask for advice, and she doesn't always tell me what I want to hear, she sometimes is like, Wow, what about the other person? Or what about when I ask relationship advice? And so that's a good thing because it helps me self-reflect and see my part and then see that person's perspective, and that's what we all need to do in our relationships. See what is our part, and what I say in coaching is, What's your 3%? And that's really the only way we can change the world, a lot of times recently, I was just talking about this with my family, people like to point the finger and other people, and they're really accusatory, and that just doesn't get us anywhere. We want to change the world, we need to look at ourselves first, like what can we do to help community? To change our world? To change your communities? It starts with this and our little fear of influence and then rippling out, it's a ripple effect, but it has to start with you. (29:08)
