On this episode of Tamarindo, we start off by discussing the 2020 Election results and our mixed feelings given Trump’s refusal to concede, our concern over how many people still support him and believe conspiracy theories like those pushed by QAnon. Though all of that keeps us worried, we’re staying hopeful for 2021 and what the Biden Administration may mean for the future.

As we close out the last episode of this season of Tamarindo and start to think of a new post-Trump era, we know many of you are doing introspective work right along with us. We talk about how the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has pushed many of us to reflect on what’s most important.

It’s no surprise that in 2020 many of us have had to reset personal goals and adjust to a world with many uncertainties. This is why in this episode we talk about how a leadership or life coach might be helpful in pushing you to achieve your goals. Ana Sheila, our resident life coach, breaks down exactly what a coach does, how the work of a coach differs from that of a therapist, and what to consider when deciding to work with one. Brenda describes her experience working with an executive leadership coach, the phenomenal Liz Garcia, and how that was beneficial to her in exploring a career transition. Ana Sheila is a coach with Launch Latinx which you can learn about here:

I grew up being told, “you can’t do that because you’re a girl” or “your brother can because he’s a boy” and I hated hearing that. It’s been something that has tormented me my entire life.
