Settle in with a glass or mug of your favorite libation for your personal “Empower Hour” with insights and advice on how to live life on your terms. My guests will include women with inspirational stories of reinvention, achievement and purpose, and I will feature experts in health, nutrition, fitness, books, business, and more.
My September 29th show will get you moving! My first guest is Patrice Tanaka who served as inspiration for my own pursuit of finding joy in my life. Patrice is Co-founder, Chief Counselor and Creative Strategist, PadillaCRT, and a self-described serial entrepreneur, co-founding her third PR & marketing agency, PadillaCRT, in September 2013. In so doing, she and her former partners at CRT/tanaka created with Minneapolis-based Padilla Speer Beardsley the “largest, employee-owned PR agency” and the “15th largest, independent PR agency” in the U.S. She has been honored by many PR, marketing, business and civic organizations. Patrice devotes much of her free time to serving on the boards of non-profit organizations dedicated to helping women and children.
But Patrice’s full story is not all about being a PR industry powerhouse. Some years ago she underwent a personal transformation. Like many women, Patrice has reached the pinnacle of her career but she also felt she needed some mental re-invigoration. At the suggestion of an executive coach, she decided to embark on the pursuit of finding more joy her life. Following a childhood fondness for dancing, Patrice took up ballroom dancing. In many ways the discipline, diplomacy, rhythm and physical challenge of dancing was not unlike the orchestration of a carefully crafted PR campaign for one of Patrice’s clients. She became a competitive ballroom dancer, and one to reckon with! The physical and spiritual transformation Patrice experienced from immersing herself in the world of ballroom dancing became the basis of her book, Becoming Ginger Rogers…How Ballroom Dancing Made Me a Happier Woman, a Better Partner and a Smarter CEO, was published in September 2011 by BenBella Books: http://www.becominggingerrogers.com @sambagal http://www.padillacrt.com @PadillaCRT
