What’s Stopping You From Your Nxt? A Conversation with Author Cindy Carrillo

Pragmatic Live Podcast

“Finding your nxt is about you initiating a change, not a change that happens to you,” – Cindy Carrillo What if you left your business, your career as you knew it, and started a ranch? That’d probably be a pretty big change for most people. It certainly was for our guest this week, Cindy Carrillo. Our host Rebecca Kalorgeris, interviews Cindy, and she shares how she navigated changes in her life. More specifically, she discusses her most recent nxt, where she bought 35 acres, built a barn, and started raising cute, small farm animals. She also launched an Airbnb, and a new coaching business where individuals, couples and business partners participate in a two-and-a-half-day retreat at the ranch to find their nxt. Did she have experience taking care of baby goats? Absolutely not. But she was willing, able and ready to learn. She discovered that even when you’re leaping into the unknown all of the skills you’ve built and the experiences you’ve had come with you–you’re not starting from ground zero. You can apply everything you’ve learned to a new situation. You can read about her journey, insights and advice in her newest book, Finding Your Nxt: When You’re Ready for the Life You Really Want. During this episode, Rebecca and Cindy discuss:

  • Three major areas in your life where you might want to initiate change
  • The most common blockers to finding your next
  • How to find balance after moving into your next
