Monique Helstrom, Change & How to Navigate It

Released Wednesday, 11th August 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
I had the pleasure of speaking with Monique Helstrom who I am sure many of you know. Monique was the Executive Assistant to Simon Sinek, the New York Times Best Selling Author and TED celebrity.

This episode is really about change. Change whether it’s wanted or unwanted can be so difficult to navigate and it was really a pleasure to speak with Monique about her experiences of change in her life.

Monique was a workaholic, someone who knew how to work and whose life was defined in many ways by the work she was doing. Being part of such a dynamic movement was incredibly rewarding but there came a time when the 80 hour weeks had to stop. Monique, like many people going through change, was free falling.

Today we speak about how Monique redefined her life’s work, the steps she took to create a different life using her unique talents and abilities and how, she believes, anyone can do the same.


Just some of the things we speak about in the episode are:

💥Burn out, what it looks like and how to prevent it

💥The reality of working for a celebrity

💥What it’s like to be in an all encompassing role

💥Monique’s journey to becoming an Executive Assistant

💥How she pivoted her career

💥Why Monique loves personality tests

💥How to define and create your career you want

💥Communication and how to make the most of each encounter with other people

Communication is the most important tool we have to connect and collaborate with others. Period.  It affects every aspect of our life, including our relationships, our career projection, our parenting ability, our self-esteem, our level of stress, and yes, our wallet.  If you’re ready to learn the most important skill that no one has ever taught you, then look no further!
