• In today’s episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and my guest, Christy Jeziorski, as we talk about using music as a form of diplomacy. Christy is a social entrepreneur, music consultant, creative strategist, and founder of Inity. At a young age, she has already been passionate about music and her journey always led her back to it. Music is so powerful in many ways; listen to the episode now and learn how this has changed her life! 

    Listen to your Intuition 

    Intuition or gut instincts are personal feelings and immediate understandings of certain matters that are mostly always right. Many people neglect their intuition because they’re afraid of the outcome if they follow what they feel. It can be very difficult to follow them, especially when you’re focused on the negative situations that might happen. On the contrary, listening to your intuitions protect you from harmful situations and relationships. It helps you become more aware and avoid unnecessary matters that will waste your time. If you start to acknowledge and accept your gut instincts, your path will be clearer. You can’t really say that your intuition is wrong when you don’t try to prove it right. There are many instances in our life when we wished that we should’ve followed our intuitions from the start. Don’t let overthinking interfere or hinder you from what you think is best for you.

    Breaking Away from Expectations

    People will always have expectations for who you are and what they want you to do. It is hard to break away from these expectations when they’re from our families. We start becoming hesitant to follow our passion because of what others are saying. However, it is important that you realize that you’re the one that should create your future and not anyone else. When you let other people dictate who you should become, you’ll live your life unfulfilled and confused. Christy said that it is important that people find that passion or purpose in their life that makes them feel happy that they could turn into their careers. By having the courage to work hard for your passion, you will never feel like you’re simply working to earn money. Instead, you’ll feel and living your life with a purpose.

Neil is the co-founder and CEO of Eppione, an integrated HR employee benefits and insurance platform for businesses across the world. He also discusses the duties of the employers towards their employees, treating everyone with respect, employee benefits strategies, and so on! As we are navigating through this new normal, it is important to learn how to adapt and change strategies to achieve success!

    Treat Your Employees as Individuals

    A happy employee is more loyal and productive doing their tasks. When employees feel like they’re heard and valued, they acknowledge and work harder for your goals. Neil said in the episode that it is important to treat your employees the same and as individuals. The best way of building long-term relationships with any kind of connection is to treat them with respect. There will also be more opportunities for growth for your business because they’ll help provide ideas and suggestions when needed. Employees usually do not speak up when they feel intimidated by their higher-ups. However, it is truly not that easy especially when you’re not used to communicating, but the outcome when you try is worth it. 

    Employer’s Duty of Care during the COVID-19

    To save the business from failing and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace, an employer must strictly fulfill their duty in taking care of their employees. It has become difficult for everyone to adapt to this new normal, the chances of harming every individual’s health and safety are at huge risk.

    An employer has the role of being the leader in the team and he or she needs to implement strict COVID-19 prevention guidelines. Ensuring as well that the safety of the employees are not harmed while working and consider the possible benefits they can acquire when infected with the disease. The levels of responsibilities are high for an employer, especially in terms of keeping the business going while there is a crisis. And as important as the role is for a leader, the employees should also know how to follow to effectively execute these preventions. Working as a team, learning how to adapt and pivot are critical to the success of the business. Sooner or later companies should accept the new normal and the changes that have occurred in the industry. Learn more about the possible strategies and factors to consider in this episode with Neil!

  • It’s hard to feel anything but anger and disgust now but I know that we will not let the heroes that died yesterday down. Here are some ways you can help.


    Feminist Coalition: https://donatebtc.feministcoalition2020.com/Diasporans Against SARS: https://www.gofundme.com/f/4ppyfs-diasporans-against-sars




    Depending on where live, there are different regulations around protesting but following #Endsars on any social media platform will give you multiple options.

    Some of you may be reading this and saying to yourself this is happening to my country too. I won’t be surprised because it’s clear that what’s needed all over the world in our institutions is reform which is what the #EndSARS movement has become. In addition to fighting against police brutality, it is fighting against bad governance and corruption. It is also fighting for better jobs, education and infrastructures.

    Nigerian lives matter!

    The youth matter!

    The continuous cycle of brutality and incompetence the government, military and police have shown will not stand.

    This is not what we voted for.

    The tragedy of yesterday will not be forgotten. You might have shot at us but our voices will not be silenced.
