Don’t Be Afraid to Look at Your Options!
Holly Bertone

Holly Bertone

Making the Maven Episode 134: There are a lot more options out there than you think.


Holly Bertone has an amazing and beautiful story to share. First of all, she is both a breast cancer and Hashimoto’s survivor. She is Founder of Pink Fortitude and the Author of Thriving in the Workforce with Autoimmune Disease, which is also an Amazon Bestseller. Holly has been through so much and had to drastically shift the way she works because of her illnesses. As someone with an autoimmune disease, she is all too familiar with what it was like dealing with coworkers and bosses who simply did not believe you’re sick. Find out more about Holly Bertone and her journey on today’s episode.

Key Insights & Aha Moments


*People with autoimmune disease, especially in the workplace, are silently suffering from this.

*Holly started her blog as a side hobby while she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

*How did Holly Bertone first get started along this path?

*Holly was 39 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and then she was also diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease.

*Holly really could not do it all. She had to take a step back from her job in order to recover properly.

*The universe gives you signs.

*What is Holly up to now?

*Holly transitioned to a different job and they were not supportive at all over her Hashimoto’s ‘flare ups.’

*Holly felt like a failure. She had to give up on her life’s work and she felt like she let herself and her family down.

*When Holly was going through this, she found out there were very few resources for people who have autoimmune disease in the workplace.

*How many people are silently suffering everyday just because people don’t believe their illness is real?

*What has the response been like as the result of the work, and the book, Holly has done?

*If you’re having health challenges, put a financial/career/life plan together. Really think hard to come up with a game plan and work with what you got.

*Don’t be afraid to look at your options. There’s a lot more out there than you think.

*What advice does Holly have for those just starting out?

*Holly had to completely shift how she worked on a daily basis after she was diagnosed with cancer. She couldn’t ‘charge’ at the problems anymore with the energy that she had.

Everything Looked Good… on Paper
Kate Swoboda


Making the Maven Episode 133: Fear is a habit, but the good news is, you can change it so that you live your most authentic self.


Kate Swoboda is the Author of The Courage Habit and she is an expert on habit-formation and building psychological courage. Fear-based behaviors can become habitual, but this means that you can also develop courageous-based behaviors too! Fear will always come up in your life, whether you’re launching a new product, book, or service, fear will be there. The good news is, you can change the way you feel about fear so that it benefits you. Find out more from the very wise Kate Swoboda on this week’s episode!

Key Insights & Aha Moments


*Everybody struggles with fear… and that’s okay! Kate dives into why you have to face your fears today.

*How did Kate get started?

*You will never be able to fully get rid of fear but what you can do is get present and not let the fear control you.

*If fear-based behaviors can become habitual, then that means courageous-based behaviors can too.

*At least half of our behavior every day is habitual. We are very predictable and that’s not always a bad thing. However, it’s bad when we let habits go on autopilot.

*The good news is you can break the habit!

*What is your fear routine?

*What finally got Kate to face her fears and create change in her life?

*Kate thought she was making all the right decisions. How was it that she wasn’t happy when she made them so consciously and deliberately?

*What was Kate’s biggest struggle when she first got started working for herself?

*Making six figures in six weeks is a lottery ticket. For most entrepreneurs, it’s a grind and it takes time to see success.

*Don’t compare other people’s success to where you are. Everybody starts at a different point in their entrepreneurial journey.
