Women and Leadership w/ Trina L. Martin

Women and Leadership w/ Trina L. Martin

April 8, 2019

Welcome to the show!

Today I have a wonderful guest with me that I know you are going to love hearing from.  Trina L. Martin has had quite a career not only in the military but also with the FBI.

In today's episode Trina and I talk about:

Women and leadership,

Why women need to support other women,

How things are changing for women,

How long we still have to go,

Getting through struggle and adversity and so much more!


Guest Bio

Trina L. Martin is a motivational speaker who inspires emerging leaders to pursue their wildest
dreams with heart and grit. An accomplished and dedicated member of the U.S. military for nearly 30 years, she has broken barriers and made strides in her career that many said weren’t possible. Her new mission is to show others how they, too, can achieve the impossible and define success on their own terms.

A native of Chicago, IL, Trina grew up watching her mother struggle financially to take care of the family. She dreamed of attending college one day, but knew she’d have to find a way to achieve that goal on her own, due to the lack of support and resources at home. With unwavering determination, she enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in the reserves to put herself through school at Alabama A&M University. Both of these choices fueled Trina’s desire to succeed and revealed the depths of her resiliency.

After several years in the Army, Trina transferred to the Navy, and earned an MBA degree from
Western International University. Naturally skilled at finding the harmony between technology,
science, and data, she has led a stellar career in the Information Technology field. As an Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Navy and now as a Cyber Intelligence Analyst for the FBI, Trina has pierced the glass ceiling and excelled in positions typically held by men.

The common denominator throughout Trina’s career has been her ability to set goals and not only achieve, but surpass them. Self-motivation, discipline, and hard work are the driving forces that helped her design a life and career that defied the odds stacked against her. As a speaker, she takes a refreshingly honest and relatable approach to teaching student leaders, new professionals, and women how to develop the confidence they need to do the same. Based in Houston, TX, when she’s not helping others realize their full potential in the office or on a stage, the role she values most is that of mom to her two children.

Getting to the Next Level of Success with Women’s Voices

March 18, 2019

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm talking about women's voices.

I work with women and men and over the year's I've noticed some clear similarities in women's voices and I've also noticed the same with men.

Because it's international women's month, today I want to talk about some of the issues that women deal with, what bad voice habits get laid into women's voices often because of society, how they are perceived and what and why we need to change these issues.

Certainly if you are a part of my male audience you will still benefit from this discussion but women, this one's for you.

Permission to Say the Words You Want to Say

Permission to Say the Words You Want to Say

February 25, 2019

Welcome to the show!

One of the things that I have to do a lot with my client's is give permission slips.  What do I mean by that?  Permission slips to do things that the world said or our own brains say we cannot do.  Like, saying what you want to say.

Often times I find people up in their heads working really hard to find the exact right words.  Why do they do this?  A whole litany of reasons like they don't want to upset anyone, they want to avoid confrontation, they don't want to feel or sound like a jerk.  Here's the thing, that perception that you are going to sound like a jerk, it's usually wrong!  You don't.

If you've struggled with not saying what you want to say then this episode is for you!

Today I've got a new show for you on tone.  I have to tell you, this is the most requested topic I get.  I've done shows on tone before but I always like to add in a new twist.  Tone is something that people really struggle with and what becomes important is that you stop communicating through tones and start using the words you need to use.
