Living In Your Liminal Transition with Jon de Waal on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 59

It’s tempting to focus on our goals and try to push quickly past the intermediate stages as we move from one state to another. But acknowledging those liminal spaces is a necessary part of the process.

In this episode of Hack the Process Jon will tell us what convinced him to leave a practical career that supported him and his family to pursue an unsure path as a coach, where he found the personal support to build a business and a client base, and how his faith informs the work he does with people of all backgrounds.

Maria Dismondy Shows How to Write, Publish, and Build a Business as a Mom on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 54

When you need a particular book and it doesn’t exist, sometimes you just have to write it yourself. But it takes focus and determination to turn a first book into a career change, especially while bringing up three children. Maria Dismondy took on that challenge, and now she’s an award-winning writer of children’s literature, and has built a publishing company to help other women share their work. In this episode of Hack the Process Maria will tell us what mentors and mastermind groups have taught her about delegating responsibilities, why she continues to invest her time and energy in social networking, and how she structures her routine to get it all done in a few hours a day without sacrificing family time.
