    Welcome to another episode of Choose Your Next Yes, the podcast where we dive deep into discovering and pursuing your God-defined purpose. I'm Dr. Mel, and today we're talking about one of the most important elements in making a successful career change: confidence. Whether you're contemplating a shift to a new field, starting your own business, or taking a leap into freelance work, confidence is key. Let's explore how you can cultivate it and take bold steps toward your next career move.

    Ladies, are you in a new season of your life? Feeling like you're stuck in an endless loop of searching but not quite able to make those big life decisions? Or maybe you need a little spark of courage to chase your dreams. If you're ready to get unstuck and thrive, welcome to the Choose Your Next Yes!

    I'm Mel, a seasoned midlifer and mom of grown-ups. Trust me, I've seen my fair share of little plot twists–as I hit midlife. From getting divorced to getting downsized at work, life’s thrown me a few curveballs. It led to stress, and anxiety, and left me feeling like I had misplaced my clarity and courage. But guess what? With God's help, I found my peace, purpose, and the guts to take action on some big life decisions. Today, I'm living my best life thriving personally and professionally.

    Now, my mission is to help you clarify God's voice, empowering you to confidently say 'yes' to what truly matters and 'no' to everything else. Together, we’ll focus on relationships, self-care, finances, health and more, to choose the right “ yesses,” clarify YOUR life's purpose, be courageous and pursue your personal and professional dreams.

    Today, I chat with Misty Laboy, founder of Beauty Inside and Out, about her transformative journey from makeup artist to self-love coach. Misty shares her personal evolution, from realizing the importance of self-acceptance to launching a coaching business focused on helping women find internal peace. Through a candid conversation about attachment styles, childhood trauma, and limiting beliefs, Misty offers insights into the power of embracing authenticity and self-love. Discover how acknowledging your worthiness can lead to profound transformation and lasting happiness.

    Misty's journey began as an art student selling cosmetics to put myself through college and support my family. Along the way, she discovered a passion for helping women transform inside and out. Despite achieving career success, she struggled with her weight until she found that diets don’t work, but lifestyle changes do. This realization led her to the top 2% of her company and a mission to help others shed pounds and gain confidence. Her own journey toward self-love was the most profound transformation of all. Now, she empowers women to discover their worth beyond appearances.

    Today, Sarah and I move into parts 3 and 4 of the Audacity Factor. The third principle: capacity power emphasizes the importance of honoring oneself, acknowledging that everyone's time capacity varies due to individual circumstances. Sarah rejects the notion that success hinges solely on finding time, advocating instead for alignment with personal priorities and God's timing. She highlights the interconnection between capacity, priorities, and promise, and to give yourself permission to progress at your own pace and seek support when needed. The fourth principle, promise, encourages you to make a commitment to honor your purpose, priorities, and capacity, while also seeking support when needed. Dr. Mel echoes the importance of seeking help and emphasizes that true strength lies in vulnerability and reliance on divine guidance.

    Today I have a conversation with Sarah Khan where we discuss her framework, "The Audacity Factor," a concept rooted in defying conventional norms and embracing one's unique approach to business. Drawing from her experience as a business process consultant, Sarah discusses the audacity required to break free from traditional 9-to-5 structures and pursue entrepreneurial endeavors.

    We unpack the first two or the four key principles of the Audacity Factor: Purpose, Priorities. We stress defining then refining one's purpose as the motivation behind business decisions and tailoring priorities to individual business stages and the importance of sustainable growth anchored in purpose and guided by faith.

    Sarah Khan is a disruptive speaker, mentor, and business consultant for women, and creator of the Entrepreneur Growth HierarchyTM️ and The Audacity FactorTM️ -- two pivotal frameworks that allow women to build sustainable businesses with clarity and ease. Sarah left a lucrative career to become an entrepreneur and speaker on a mission to shift the way women see what is possible in the areas of leadership, merit, achievement, and belief as they work toward financial independence, sustainability, and autonomy.
