Career Activism with Michelle Nadon #LivingFearlessly #ThriveGlobal

When a person such as myself, is completely immersed in what it is they do for a living, and is fortunate to do what they love and love what they do – time flies at mach speed. These Feature Articles of my weekly showcased Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald global radio/podcast guests, of whom I have the honour and the privilege of interviewing and sharing with the loyal listeners and podcast subscribers, and also with you here on Thrive Global, has truly become the highlight of my days!

It never ceases to amaze me, how individually stellar and unique each and every single one of my radio/podcast guests is. The depth and breadth of shared and imparted knowledge, wisdom, and insights over the course of the past four and a half years, and on a weekly basis by those who are graciously willing to be interviewed by me – is both immeasurable and invaluable. 

Michelle Nadon is yet another spitfire, bright-light, and trailblazer amongst the growing roster of quality-calibre guests! This wonderful woman and myself had initially connected on LinkedIn over a year ago, which was then followed up with an ever-inspiring and hilarious telephone conversation. Michelle had back then, expressed immense excitement about the prospect of appearing as my guest on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald. Michelle had committed to reconnecting with me once she believed it to be more strategically timed and aligned. 

Michelle is an off-the-hook careerist and creative who wears many hats, so I certainly understood, respected and appreciated where she was coming from. Timing is everything, and so, I took my cue from Michelle to reconnect; once more conducive to her schedule. Low and behold, a full year had zipped by and back on the phone together we were – this time, firming up Michelle’s guest appearance on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald.

Was this recent interview worth the year-long wait? You betcha!! Not surprisingly, Michelle is a wealth of knowledge. In addition to being knowledgeable, Michelle has a knack for imparting information in an entertaining and a humorous way, which in itself, is an impressive skill and an admirable quality. Michelle is very engaging a person, who naturally exudes a genuine warmth; allowing for any opportunity to interface with her…both inviting and effortless. No coincidence to Michelle’s longevity, sustainability, and success within the business world! Charisma combined with confidence is attractive and is oftentimes synonymous with a track record of proven results. This is certainly true in relation to Michelle and her longstanding repertoire of ongoing client respect, and client successes within her specialized suites of services. 

It is always a lovely treat for me as a radio/podcast host, to interview people who not only understand the imperativeness of soft-skills within the business world, but who more importantly demonstrate and implement the usage of such skills within all their exchanges, interactions and communications. This is executed leadership at its finest, in my humble opinion. 

For all the tireless and innovative ways, in which Michelle, creatively and intuitively supports and assists her clients with the navigation, and the maneuvering processes of their career path journey…I too, say thank you, Michelle! Helping people to learn how to quickly adapt and to quickly pivot with the ever-changing times is no easy feat, especially within a culture of non-linear economic times and ever-increasing technological advancements. You certainly have your work cut out for you our friend! You can listen to the full interview here:

For all the ways, Michelle, continues to pay-it-forward and is of daily service to others, I wish to express my public gratitude to you, Michelle, for your ongoing contributions to the collective! Your particular line of work and field of study most definitely correlates with empowering others to empower themselves – that is powerful stuff! I also wish to thank, Michelle, for the gift of her time in graciously joining myself, the loyal listeners, and the Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald podcast subscribers! I appreciate you, Michelle Nadon! Keep Shining Our Friend!

Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More!

Be your own Hero. Be your own Shero. 
Be your own Leader. Be your own Best Friend! 
Love & Gratitude ~ Lisa
