Being Resilient = Being Resourceful

Mayda Poc is the embodiment of Resilience. She seems to have lived many lives in the span of one lifetime...and she’s still young. Mayda brings to her career coaching practice a wealth of wisdom that has been informed by living her early life in Syria under the constraints of a dictatorship, hanging with the boys on Wall Street as an executive in investment banking and finance, and surviving the 2008 financial crisis. But it wasn’t until she received the news that she had advanced stage cancer that Mayda turned her life and career around in order to pursue her passion for being of service to others, particularly overachievers like herself.
In this episode, career coach Mayda Poc takes us on a journey of her life and work. She teaches us that the crisis is sometimes the only message we get to propel us into the next stage of our personal evolution.
