This MindFULL conversation with Carol Ross is both mindful and delightful. It did not go the way we thought it would. It went better. You can listen to our MindFULL conversation here.

Who is Carol Ross? Carol is someone who believes in 9 lives…and 3 careers.

She started her career being very happy using only her mind, and not her heart. She was an engineer for 20 years, first in the nuclear power industry and then in the telecommunications industry.

The next 20 years gifted her with the development of her heart. She’s been a career and leadership coach since 2003, focusing on emotional fitness and since 2020, Carol has focused on developing her spirituality. Now, as an energy healer, she works in the domain of soul and spirit.  She delights when energy-based practices help her navigate sticky challenges, with ease. Her newest frontier in the metaphysical world is helping clients dissolve family patterns and mine the gifts of their lineage, through ancestral healing. Having done her own work in ancestral healing, she considers herself lucky to have been born.

Carol holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering, both from Northwestern University. She has received training from Coaches Training Institute, Lucid Living, Center for Right Relationship, and Newfield Networks.

It Only Takes One

How many times have you tried something and been met with No? Or even worse for me, crickets. I need to hear back – and often I don’t. I have had to learn to be OK with that inside myself. To turn down the volume of Whys.

So, too, did my guest, Howard Waldstricher, who made a huge career change at 59. He started as a computer programmer when he graduated college. Then life happened and he ended up becoming a personal trainer and gym owner. Then Covid happened, and he dusted off his old skills, added new ones and tuned into one of his Mother’s favorite sayings, “It only takes one”. Such advice kept him going as he applied and applied and applied to jobs. And then, he hit the mother-lode (to some people) – a job at Facebook.

And then, mic drop. After only 18 months, he got swept up in the mass layoff. Listen in as Howard shares his story about the life lessons he brought to the job and the new skills he integrated with his old skills for a new story.
