Maestro on the Mic

MOTM #574: Creating Connection with Laura Jean

Thursday, April 25th, 2024

This Throwback Thursday episode is a double whammy—it was initially two episodes that I’m rereleasing as one because if you haven’t heard it yet, then you need to immediately, and if you have already heard, well you need to listen again. This conversation, had with none other than my twin, Laura Jean, is the perfect follow-up to Monday’s conversation about the connection conundrum. As human beings, we all want to be seen, heard, and known. If we want that for ourselves, we have to lead from the front and show up in our full humanity so others can feel safe to do the same. That’s how we lead with our values, in life and in business. Y’all know I love actionable advice, especially when coupled with nuance and a deep conversation, and if that’s what you’re craving too, there’s no one better than Laura Jean.

Let’s chat.

(This episode is a re-run. Original release dates were June 19th and June 22nd, 2023.)

Welcome to Maestro on the Mic, a podcast that helps online business owners find their passion, generate more profit, and build a life that they love. I'm your host, Dr. Shanté Cofield, aka The Movement Maestro, and I’m stoked to have you here. I hope this podcast inspires you to make moves and do the thing. Action is the answer.
