Today’s guest is Liz Bohannon, founder of Sseko Designs, an ethical fashion brand that is using fashion and design to help bright & brave young women in East Africa continue on to university. To date we’ve enabled 87 women in Uganda to go to college, pursue their dreams and become change makers in their communities. Upon graduating college, Liz moved to Uganda to assist in the communications efforts for a youth development organization based in Kampala. While there, Liz met an incredible group of talented young women who were struggling to finance their education. She wanted to find a way to help them attend university, and that’s how Sseko was born.

In this episode we chat about how Liz changed directions from journalism to entrepreneur, her ups and downs along the way, and how she created a socially responsible company. Using her unlikely story of a journalist-gone-shoemaker, Liz shares her passion for social enterprise, conscious consumerism, social justice, creative leadership, gender equity, risk-taking, and empowering women.

Podcast #203 // Mini Episode on Mindfulness

September 7th, 2017 Posted by Podcast, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #203 // Mini Episode on Mindfulness”

Today’s mini episode is all about mindfulness! I decided to dedicate the month of September to mindfulness since this month has all those fresh-start feels. I’m also following along with a Mindful30 Challenge from mindful.org, so the time felt right to think about the present moment!

And that’s what mindfulness is all about: allowing all those passing thoughts to pass on by like clouds in the sky and keep a focus on what you’re doing right this moment. In this mini episode I’m sharing why mindfulness is important for me, and how it helps me stay happy and less anxious. I also share a mantra I love and two breaths I like to practice.

Do you practice mindfulness? Do you have a mantra? Or a favorite breath?

Podcast #197 // David Covey on Trap Tales

August 15th, 2017 Posted by Podcast, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #197 // David Covey on Trap Tales”

Have you ever felt trapped? I know I have. I’ve found myself stuck in the same narrative, the same loop, the same traps over and over again. In his new book, David Covey and I chat about his new book, Trap Tales: Outsmarting the Seven Hidden Obstacles to Success.

We go over the seven traps – and the ways out – in this fun, engaging conversation. Many of these traps are the ones I fall into.

From The Relationship Trap to The Career Trap,Trap Tales shows you how to recognize the signs that you are stuck in a “life trap” in time to take an alternate route. These traps are sometimes camouflaged as a terrific opportunity, other times as comfortable security, and sometimes as simply habit. Whichever form they come in, life traps can derail you, leaving you unable to achieve the success you desire. Trap Tales will help you:
  • Learn the 7 biggest life traps that catch people unaware
  • Identify the traps that are holding you back right now
  • Discover your escape route and climb out of the quicksand
  • Become a “trapologist” and avoid them altogether
