Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 37: Power Your Purpose with Megan Accardo

Megan Accardo was running events for the biggest talent agency in the world, Creative Artists Agency. She had her dream job, working directly with A-list celebrities, throwing swanky Oscars parties, traveling around the world, and “in the room” with the most well-known business leaders. At the top of her game, she was also dealing with burnout and struggling with infertility. Holding it together through adrenaline and caffeine, she finally realized she wasn’t living out her true potential. 

Megan and I discuss the hard decision to leave a comfortable job to find your passion, the death of identity, and the birth of impact. 

Megan Accardo created the platform and podcast “Power Your Purpose,” to empower women to step into their true purpose and potential in life. She hosts events and experiences around the globe to bring women together in a meaningful way for greater impact.

Megan digs into the transition between lives, the messy start that is so important, and the difference between those on the sidelines and those in the arena. She gives us some practical tips for productivity and throws the term “multi-tasking” under the bus. She encourages us to focus on those things that truly matter in order to be more effective. 

I love Megan’s advice to focusing on our future self as we think through our goals and plan out our next steps.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 36: A Pretty + Pink Legacy with Dr. Ruthie Arumala

Everyone in Ruthie Arumala’s life knew she was going to be a doctor. Except Ruthie. She had a ton of big ideas about fashion, interior design and being a physician to the stars, until her brother’s untimely death and a trip to Botswana where she got first hand experience with women’s global health. After understanding how cervical cancer changed a woman’s life, body and personal identity, she knew she found her calling. Ruthie details her grief after her brother’s death and how empathy has changed her as a person and a physician. 

We talk about a women’s relationship with her doctor, what women still don’t know about their bodies and her awareness that we manage sex through fear in most cultures. She also discusses sexual assault from the perspective of a physician and a woman’s rights advocate.

Dr. Ruthie O. Arumala, is a Georgetown University trained Ob/Gyn with a passion to discuss health in way that is accessible to every woman. The sole OBGYN at Texas Hugley Medical Associates in Mansfield, Texas, she takes care of a range of OBGYN concerns but specializes in care for PCOS, fibroids and infertility. Dr. Ruthie is also the host of the Pretty + Pink Podcast in order to empower women to make better decisions when it comes to their personal health and wellbeing.

Dr. Arumala also digs into the importance of modeling behavior and how her mother became her mentor.  There is no “do as I say, not as I do.” She talks about choosing your mentors, curating your own social media experiences, and why it is important to “shoot your shot,” when asking someone to mentor you. 

I love Dr. Arumala’s encouragement to “move, girl” and that – nothing is that serious.
