    239. Julie Desmarais (Publicist): Behind the Scenes at Cirque du Soleil’s AXEL

    28/02/2020 Duración: 16min

    About Julie Desmarais Julie Desmarais is a publicist at Cirque du Soleil. Originally from Montreal, Julie has been with the company for many years. We met for the first time during CRYSTAL opening in Boston two years ago. Most recently, I interviewed her backstage for the new Cirque du Soleil ice show called AXEL. After dozens of interviews with circus artists, Julie became the first publicist we interviewed on podcast. When you meet Julie and no matter how busy she is, she greets you with a big and authentic smile. She loves her work, and that love fuels her creative energy. In this episode, you’ll learn: What it means to be a publicist at Cirque du Soleil How Julie became a publicist for the company What it’s like to travel on the road with performers, and how that changes the relationships among people (for the better) How to reinvent yourself in your career How YOU can apply for jobs in and outside of circus roles (costume, accessories, finance, infrastructure and more) at Cirque du Soleil: http

    238. Jeremy Ten: Skater from Cirque du Soleil's AXEL

    21/02/2020 Duración: 11min

    Jeremy Ten is a Canadian figure skater, a three-time Canadian national medallist (silver in 2015, bronze in 2009 and 2012). He competed in the free skate at seven ISU Championships. Jeremy strikes me as someone who’s highly skilled and yet incredibly humble. After being interviewed by at least 5-6 reporters just before our conversation, he pleasantly accepted my invite to join Feisworld as part of a Facebook Live series, where I interview performers as I travel with my partner Adam Leffert. AXEL is a different kind of Cirque show. After CRYSTAL (the very first ice show from Cirque), AXEL became the second success story of attempting something so out of the ordinary for Cirque. Artistic director Shana Carroll has been interviewed on Feisworld once before when CRYSTAL was in production. Jeremy and I talked about AXEL, what it’s like to be a traveling artist at the age of 30, transitioning from a professional, competing skater to a circus performer, plus Jeremy’s skincare routine that keeps him looking young and

    237. Humanity and Humility: the story of my mom's recent surgery and recovery

    08/02/2020 Duración: 28min

    Hey amazing humans, I recorded the episode originally for me to remember this rather incredible and memorable journey from January 2nd to February 6th, 2020, when I became my mom's caretaker. In many ways, it felt like the most difficult time I had to live through in a long time.  I want to dedicate this episode to anyone who's living through medical difficulties, caring for their families and friends, and those who work in the healthcare industries tirelessly to create miracles and care for strangers.  There are many lessons I learned through this experience, and I hope you'll share yours as well.  Love and hugs, Fei

    236. How to Work as a Freelance Project Manager

    31/01/2020 Duración: 30min

    A listener named Jenny Lisk sent us a great question related to our freelance mini-series - "How can I Work as a Freelance Project Manager"?  Freelancing can speak more towards people who can work \ independently. Since project management requires a lot of coordination on site with team members, many people in this career path find it difficult to switch over to freelancing from working full-time.   Since my freelance career started as a freelance project manager, I want to dedicate this episode to those who want to consider the possibility of working as a freelance project manager.  This episode is longer than our traditional mini-episode (10-15 mins) because I want to deep-dive into some of the practical applications and advice related to freelance project management.  Please share your questions and feedback with me via feisworld@gmail.com, or @feisworld everywhere on social media

    Ep 230. Allison Martin (Founder of UDoTest): Empowering Women Through Accessible Medical Prevention

    13/12/2019 Duración: 01h05min

    Allison Martin (LinkedIn) was born and raised in South Africa. She’s the founder of UDoTest, the first company of its kind to help significantly reduce the unnecessary cervical cancer deaths in Africa. Following a mobile and tech career, she noticed a significant lack of accessibility to medical services and care across Africa. After the first few experiences of getting her Pap smear, she figured that there must be a better and easier way for women to receive these tests - possibly in the comfort of their own homes. UDoTest was the start of something digitally different in South Africa and sub-saharan Africa with the intention of merging tech, healthcare and a much greater purpose all into one. The goal was to educate, increase awareness and disease prevention using simple and accurate methods.

    06/12/2019 Duración: 20min

    Hey guys, this episode is quite different - it's raw and uncut.  My dad passed away on Dec 6, 2009. As I'm releasing this episode, I've lived my life without him for exactly 10 years.  I thought I should let go of the structure, the format of an intro, outro and just record it straight into the mic.  It's close to midnight for me after a long day of travel and interviews. You'll hear words I no longer knew how to say correctly and had to repeat myself. This just shows how imperfect a draft version of a recording actually is.  Much love, look forward to your feedback.  Fei

    Show notes, tools and more resources: https://www.feisworld.com/blog/anna-laman About Our Guest Anna is a freelancer who works as a messaging coach for other freelancers, consultants, and other solo entrepreneurs. What you will learn: Anna came to this interview well prepared to talk about Positioning & Messaging to help you become better at telling your own stories and services. In her experience, freelancers tend to try to be everything to everyone, which ends up backfiring or burning them out. She thinks at the beginning of your freelance career it's important to try different kinds of clients and work, but that after a while it's essential to start narrowing down the types of work and clients you like best and positioning yourself as an expert in your niche. That results in being able to increase your rates and actually doing work you enjoy, which is, after all, the whole point of freelancing!

    Ep 222. Darius Foroux: How can we live a useful life that matters?

    18/10/2019 Duración: 01h12min

    Darius Foroux (https://dariusforoux.com/) is a writer and creative entrepreneur. He is also the #1 most-read author on Medium, and one of my favorite blogs for the past few years. Darius lives in Holland, where he was raised. His parents are immigrants from Iran. Dutch is his first language but you’ll never know through his writing. I quickly learned during our conversation that English has been an official language taught in schools and universities in Holland. Darius is the author of 6 books, including Think Straight and What It Takes To Be Free. There’s one question at the core of his work: How can we live a useful life that matters? In short, his work focuses on four main topics: Productivity: How can we achieve more without sacrificing our well-being? Habits: What habits will make our lives better, and how can we form them? Decision Making: What ways of thinking lead to better decisions? Personal Finance: How do we build wealth without sacrificing our integrity? Show notes, tools and resources:
