What Space is Like with Astronaut Nicole Stott

There are only 59 female astronauts. It was a real treat to talk with Nicole Stott, who flew on missions STS-128, STS-129, STS-133, and spent more than 3 months on the International Space Station. 

We talk about the view out the window, getting to know the Earth intimately from above, and more. 

There is no point talking about it here: just go listen. 

As always share your thoughts in the She Thinks Big Facebook Group. I love hearing from you.

016 How to Sell with Authenticity and Improve Your Sales Mindset with Nikki Rausch

How to Sell with Authenticity and Improve Your Sales Mindset with Nikki Rausch

Do you struggle with sales conversations? Do you fear coming across as pushy, aggressive, or smarmy? Do you wish sales could just. be. easier?

Nikki Rausch is Your Sales Maven, and in this episode she will tell you about the framework she has created called the Selling Staircase. This framework provides a structure for you to know where you are inside a sales conversation, which helps you know exactly what to say next.

Skip a step and you risk your clients banging their shins, or not wanting to move forward with you: Nikki explains each step of the Selling Staircase to help you understand the flow of conversations.

We also talk about sales mindset, and how there is a decent chance that a negative sales mindset is infiltrating your sales process, dragging down your revenue, and sabotaging your potential. With myself as an example, we discuss a blind spot I had that Nikki shined a light on, that resulted in buying signals floating right past me, unobserved and uncapitalized on.

I cannot recommend highly enough that you check out Nikki’s website and trainings at YourSalesMaven.com.

Listeners, please share your takeaways in the She Thinks Big Facebook Group. I really do want to know what stood out to you from this episode.

007 Turning a Scientific Discovery into a Business with CEO of CarbonNutra Carrine Blank

007 Turning a Scientific Discovery into a Business with CEO of CarbonNutra Carrine Blank

If you forgot to pick up your copy of Algal Research, you might have missed that microbiologist Carrine Blank made an important discovery in 2016 – namely, that the genome sequences of certain cyanobacterial species contained predicted chitin metabolizing genes. 

That’s right.

In this episode I take you on a wild scientific ride. If you took molecular biology, it will come in handy today!

This discovery allows Carrine to grow algae using products from 2 different waste streams:

  1. A polymer called chitin, which is a material used by crustaceans and mushrooms in their shells and cell wall structure.
  2. Waste water with dissolved phosphorus.

The algae turn all this into 2 viable market products:

  1. Astaxanthin, which can be used for its red dye or antioxidant properties.
  2. Biofuel, as a replacement for fossil fuel.

while cleaning the phosphorus from the water.

If you get lost in the science, don’t worry – I throw you a rescue line with a simple explanation of the whole system part-way through this conversation.

The implications of Carrine’s discovery are far-reaching — I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about this discovery, where she might take it, and what other developments and technologies may eventually spring from it.

006 Jodi Flynn Interviews Me on Thinking and Playing Big

006 Jodi Flynn Interviews Me on Thinking and Playing Big

Today I pass the mic to Jodi Flynn of the Women Taking the Lead podcast. With this podcast I want to flesh out what it is to think and play big, so that women all around the world can step more fully into their authenticity and power.

We talk about adopting a mindset of moving your fear out of the way, or at least, befriending it; learning and practicing shifting into this space so that it becomes the default space to operate in, rather than spending most of our time pushing and dragging fear around.

My ask of the She Thinks Big community is to be willing to step forward again and again, even when you are scared. This world needs you to show up.

My vision is one where women around the world can speak and tell the truth – even if there may be reprisals. With #MeToo lifting us all, it has become abundantly clear that we can speak and be heard.

Listeners, please share your takeaways in the She Thinks Big Facebook Group. I really do want to know what stood out to you from this episode.

005 How to Create a Movement around Crowd Manufacturing with Francie Wasser of FranciePants

005 How to Create a Movement around Crowd Manufacturing with Francie Wasser of FranciePants

Meet Francie Wasser, the visionary behind healthy underwear that is poised to start a movement. Crowd manufacturing is one way for people who don’t fit into the binary paradigm of 9-5 full-time employment or contracting, to work in a way that fits, supports, and empowers their lives.

Francie’s ask is to spread the word about crowd manufacturing, so that we can have thousands (or millions!) of people who can work from home, be paid a generous wage, in the United States.
