Randi Levin claims she’s not a coach but a “transitional life strategist” who uses her own reinvention—from corporate cog to entrepreneur—to help others reimagine themselves. She instructs on shifts in thinking, time management, and most important, on how to catch your inner confidence thief: “fear.” Visit Randi’s website here to learn more about coaching.
Vani Murthy came to the U.S. from India and was totally economically dependent on her husband. She talks with CoveyClub founder Lesley Jane Seymour about how, when he became abusive, she made a plan — escaped. Vani’s miraculous story tells of believing in herself, finding help, getting her accounting degree, and forging a new life. Lesley and Vani are joined by Yesenia Maldonado, who runs BetweenFriendsChicago.com, the agency that helped Vani (and women like her) escape abusive relationships.
Fran Pastore grew up in a tight male-dominated Italian family. She watched how all her female relatives were disempowered and forced to become dependent on a male for their future. Fran talks to CoveyClub founder Lesley Jane Seymour about how and why she decided to gather her fate into her own hands by applying to college (her mother stopped talking to her because of it!) and eventually opened the Women’s Business Development Council of Connecticut (CTWBDC.Org) that supplies free support services for female business owners. Fran’s #1 tip for reinventing out of your disapproving family: “Surround yourself with people who have skills and knowledge you don’t have.”
She was a best-selling author (Younger, The Possibility of You), owned a successful baby-naming site, had a marriage of 33 years, a big house in the suburbs, kids and a picket fence. And then she turned the age at which her mother died. Her book Younger was optioned by Sex & The City’s Darren Star and she decided to start over.
After her divorce, Susan McPherson moved herself from Seattle to New York and started her life all over. She knew no one. Susan speaks with CoveyClub founder Lesley Jane Seymour about how she created her own community and became a super-connector running her own consulting business called McPherson Strategies which helps corporations with social responsibility.
Failing on the front page of the Wall Street Journal is a whole other level of grief. But Sallie Krawcheck not only survived it, she thrived, going on to found Ellevate Network and co-found Ellevest investments. She speaks with CoveyClub founder, Lesley Jane Seymour about how being the seventh-grade girl in the lunchroom with whom no one would sit, taught her to overcome adversity, lead, and believe in the power of money and women.
