Ep. 42: Pivoting through the Pandemic with Emilie Aries

Did your job or personal life shift tremendously over the past year? Many people and small businesses have had to change directions including this week’s guest on “Happiness through Hardship” – The Podcast. I’m excited to share the mic with Emilie Aries – Founder and CEO of Bossed Up. A year ago, all her in-person speaking and training was put on hold due to COVID-19 and 100% of her planned events were cancelled. As a company focused on signature events and in-person opportunities, Bossed Up was faced (like so many people) with big decisions and little direction. Today, the good news is that they are innovating and listening to their communities needs…and Emilie shares the struggle and opportunities as well as gives us hope for better days.

Emilie’s career started on the political campaign scene and after rising the ranks in the election world, she launched Bossed Up, a personal and professional development company. Emilie has worked with leaders at Fortune 500 companies and has been being featured in media talking about how people can transform their careers and communities.

On this episode Emilie shares how she created psychological safety for her team and listened to her clients in order to innovate. She speaks about having audacity in order to have hope. She also shares tons of tips for those wanting to make radical progress in their careers. My eyes lit up when she shared a lesson about embracing new skills and sharing a story about playing the drums in a family band.
