Building great software is often simple, but it’s almost never easy.
Taking a product idea and bringing it to fruition is fraught with peril. Understanding your customers, coming up with designs, defining clear goals, understanding complexity, dealing with roadblocks, squashing bugs, accurately tracking performance metrics and product maintenance are just a handful of the things that can cause major headaches.
We believe that things can and should be easier. A lot easier. So whether it’s making sure you’re hiring the right team or delivering the right products in the most effective way possible, our services are designed to maximize the true potential of your entire organization.
If you’ve ever felt helpless or like you don’t have total control over either
the direction of your career -OR-
the progression of your career
Then in this podcast episode, you’re going to learn how to make yourself bulletproof and infinitely employable, and keep yourself in a position where you can always have job security in an economy where no job is truly secure.
Have you achieved every single goal that you’ve ever set in your life, no matter what? Do you have a 100% success rate with goals or are there important areas in your career in your life where you feel like you’ve fallen short of the things you aspire to achieve?
Well, in this episode, I’m giving you my top takeaways on how to gain better clarity and better direction on your goals, PLUS how to take consistent action towards achieving them.
Welcome to the first ever Tactical Takeaways episode of the podcast. This is a new, experimental episode format that I am hoping will serve as an actionable supplement to the rest of the great conversations and content we’re bringing you every single week.
I say this is a supplementary format, because every full conversation we have on the podcast is always guaranteed to be chock full of entertaining stories, valuable tips, and amazing wisdom from outstanding people. So while I have no desire to ever stop having those conversations, I felt like there was something missing.
And I felt like what was missing — what I might hope to see from a show that publishes longer conversations that cover a TON of ground — is something that is
Curated: Not a comprehensive summary, rather just some of the most important points from the full conversation
A tight & compact format: Something I can listen to easily on a trip to the store, etc.
Highly actionable: When I listen to other shows, my brain immediately starts wondering “How could I easily put this into practice?” So I wanted to provide examples that you, the listener, could put into action right away.
In this podcast episode, you’re going to get an amazing conversation with a Director of the People and Experienced team over at VaynerMedia, not to mention someone who’s helped that company grow from a few dozen employees to over 900 employees in just 9 years. While VaynerMedia is not the only company with that kind of growth, it is one of the few to do so while still keeping its culture and the company’s “soul” in-tact and thriving.
We’ll dive into how they managed to go through massive growth as a company while maintaining a great culture, as well as how Shirlee’s unconventional career path can actually serve as a model and a great example if you feel like you’re not exactly on the career path you want to be, or if you’re second-guessing the path you’ve chosen.
As a senior leader in an outstanding company’s People organization, Shirlee is a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, and perspective, and I just know you’re going to get a number of great takeaways from this conversation.

Mindy Mercurio is a long-time Sales Manager & Leader whose passion for GOOD Leadership led her to establishing herself as a Personal Development Coach helping women create lasting change in their careers and their lives.
Similar to my own journey, in Mindy’s corporate career she found herself in a management position rather accidentally. Also similar to myself, she discovered what Leadership really means by learning a lot of lessons the hard way.
This episode of the podcast is special, and not just because you’ll hear from VP of People & Operations at VaynerMedia Katie Sagan, though she and her story are quite special in their own right.
This episode is special because you’ll hear Katie really open up about what it’s like to spend a huge part of your life looking to create an impact in the “conventional” ways we always think about, and then to recognize that sometimes you can impact the world simply by being in a great environment where you can empower others.
I’m really excited to share this conversation with you, in particular because it’s about a topic that has come up a lot during the COVID pandemic. In the face of lockdowns, quarantine, economic change and uncertainty, it seems like everybody’s talking about the concept of resilience, and specifically
Why folks like yourself should become more resilient
How you might have benefitted from already being more resilient than you currently are
I’ve been fascinated by this idea of resilience for the past decade or so, in trying to understand it better and really to better equip myself and those around me to be as resilient as possible.
But what is resilience, really? What does it really mean? What is the big deal with resilience, and why is it important? How can it help you in your career and in your life?
This week I’m extremely excited to bring you this conversation with
A certified conflict analysis and resolution mediator
An award-winning strategist and brand builder
Someone who’s worked for over 15 years in executive leadership positions
Someone who’s recognized as a professional development expert by Reader’s Digest, Thrive Global, MSN money, MSN news, and so many more
A frequent speaker at organizations and universities
An expert at helping people develop professional aspirations and achieve their dreams… as well as how to thrive in their current job in their current career.
I hope you enjoy this conversation about company leadership, micro-innovations, and real professional development that can be accomplished in as little as 5 minutes a week … my conversation with Hiring Bloom founder Armida Markarova
