The Love Is Viral Show Episode 83: Brave Leadership with Kim Virtuoso


Kim Virtuoso believes that in order to embody brave leadership, we must first focus on our whole person, being mindful, and self-aware. Through this foundation we can truly show up, listen, and seek to understand those around us. 

Kim is the Founder and CEO of All In Leadership, and a recognized practitioner in the fields of leadership coaching and HR consulting, with considerable experience and a proven track record for motivating, influencing and guiding leaders to unlock potential within themselves and their teams. 

In this episode, we discuss:  

The importance of cultivating emotional intelligence in order to build better relationships

How building confidence leads to bravery and allows us to reframe failure as an opportunity 

Why we need to create a safe environment for others to speak out and share ideas

Why courageous conversations are needed in order to set boundaries and stay aligned with what you stand for

As well as how brave leadership means having the ability to challenge the status quo and take a step back when things just don’t feel right

Prior to establishing All In Leadership Coaching and Consulting Group, Kim spent over fifteen years in both operational and human resources leadership roles in the hospitality, gaming and entertainment industry with Fortune 500 companies such as MGM Resorts International, Caesar’s Entertainment, Ritz Carlton, Palms Casino and Resort, and Lewis Brisbois Legal Firm.

Kim holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, with an emphasis in Human Resources from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. She also holds her Master’s in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University. Kim obtained her Sr. Professional Human Resources Certification (SPHR) from the HR Certification Institute and is a certified coach from The Leets Consortium (TLC).

I love Kim’s reminder not to cage ourselves in to what we think our journey should be, and to always be willing to pivot when needed in order to step into what feels authentic for us, our values, and our personal mission.

Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 24: Thrive: Body, Soul and Career with Amina AlTai

Amina AlTai is a holistic business and mindset coach and corporate trainer. She is the first social entrepreneur to successfully create a methodology that supports the health of a business and its people at the same time. Over a decade in marketing and grappling with a fast-paced career and two autoimmune diseases lead Amina to burnout. In hopes of healing her own life, she sought training in nutrition, fitness and mindfulness and her goal became to teach others how to balance a thriving career, body and mind.

In this episode we talk about the tax that stress takes on our bodies, why you have to marry your wellness with your career and the importance of a growth mindset. We dig into intuitive eating, raising conscious children and the toolboxes that we have to build in order to cope, grow and build our big, bad lives. 

Progressive companies such as Deloitte, Y&R;, Outdoor Voices, NYU and HUGE have partnered with Amina. She’s an Entrepreneur Magazine expert-in-residence and writes for Thrive Global, MindbodyGreen, The Observer, Yahoo, Bustle, Byrdie and more.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 10: Coming Home To A Life of Purpose (or The Sidelines Are Where Your Soul Goes To Die) with Alexis Michaud

Alexis Michaud spent the better part of two decades as a tax and corporate law attorney. She most recently held the title of Deputy General Counsel for a large company she took public, and then promptly left. She went from inking deals on private jets to creating her own real estate and design practice as a newly minted entrepreneur. It was her father’s stay in the ICU for 30 days that created a shift within that snapped her from long days, long nights, working weekends, skipping vacations for nearly a decade, taking 3 days off after the birth of her daughter via section to a moment of being DONE, “If not now, then when?”

Alexis flipped her steady path and hard earned career on its head, took 6 weeks off with her family, and decided it’s never too late to design a life you love.  She’s now an entrepreneur, Realtor, community enthusiast and is not looking back.  She’s coming home and living a life of purpose, passion, and is the driver of her one wild and crazy life.  

Alexis and I talk about the scary steps between lives, what the word HOME means to us, supportive friendships, and how the sidelines are the place your soul goes to die. Alexis is soulful and determined. You are going to love her. Follow Alexis on IG at @pineappleandpinecones.

If you’d like a jump start to your new life, I welcome you to walk through the process in my book LORE: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future on Amazon or barnesandnoble.com.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 2: Trust Your Hustle with Chelli Wolford

Today I am joined by entrepreneur Chelli Wolford, owner of Bloom, a co-working space for women.

Aside from running a gorgeous space for risk-taking women to launch their businesses, Chelli also shared a letter to her younger self in my book, LORE. It is the one most asked about during my speaking engagements and we’ll tell you why. Chelli is pure heart and soul, a women’s advocate and the sister of recording artist Pitbull. 

In our time we talk about actualizing our side hustle by making leaps from uncomfortable jobs to the unpredictable life of an entrepreneur. We get deep in our feelings with advice to do the hard work and avoid the unintentional life. 

This is a grown up conversation and covers topics surrounding sexual violence and loss so fair warning for those who may be triggered.

Please subscribe to Gold, love this episode up, share it with your friends, and leave a review. It would mean the absolute world to me, and the lovely guests sharing their gold every week.
