I'm Lindsay Mustain and this is the career design podcast made for driven ambitious square pegs and round holes type professionals who see things differently and challenge the status quo. We obliterate obstacles and unlock hidden pathways to overcome and succeed where others have not stagnation feels like death, and we are unwilling to compromise our integrity and settle for being average in any way. We are the backbone of any successful business and those who overlook our potential are doomed to a slow demise. We do work that truly matters aligns with our purpose, and in turn, we make our lasting mark on the world. We are the dreamers, doers, legends, and visionaries who are called to make our most meaningful contribution and love what we do.

Welcome to the career design Podcast. I'm Lindsay Mustain and I'm here to tell you that we have just blown out the results in the last seven weeks at the point of this recording, I just got notification of another job offer from one of my clients, which makes $1.9 million added to the bottom line of my client's paychecks in the last seven weeks, folks, seven weeks. Now I'm going to tell you that this person who just recently graduated, I'm going to tell you that she actually went to the corporate cash machine masterclass. And this is where I'm going to tell you we're going to have another one coming up. So go ahead and go to, because you'll get to find out about our next masterclass. And she went through this, she actually is inside of my dream job hack program and applied to work with me inside of the corporate cash machine mastermind, which is my next level program who are all about six-figure raises or more in nine weeks, she applied to work with me but let me tell you, the moment that she showed up on camera, in my Zoom conversation, which I'm really just vetting whether or not, you're really ready to take to the next level. And she absolutely had the capability, the capacity, everything needed to land that $100,000 raise. But the person that she needed to heal first was her. So when I have a conversation with somebody, I 100%, I'm not, I don't really need you to invest with me in order for my life to get better. And I mean that in the kindest way that I'm so very fortunate, so very abundantly blessed, that I don't need someone to invest in me, it's not going to change my life. However, for the person sitting across the table from me, if they're ready, it could absolutely change their life if they're ready to uplevel if they want to get that six-figure raise. But this person has stuck this person when I looked at her, I saw amazing potential but she was so scared. She told me everything that was going wrong, and how awful the circumstances were at that moment, and I 100%respect that vulnerability, that transparency. And my daughter likes to say this thing, the only way to bring something out of the dark is to shine it in the light. Everything that goes from dark comes to light. That's what she says it's so cute. She's seven folks, by the way, she gives a lot of life lessons very powerful for someone her age. And the biggest way we can look at pain and things that are going badly in our life is when we look at them honestly and say, here's what's happening. Here's what's going on. And we just look at it in the eye because the only way to get rid of darkness is to shine a light on it. And we created a game plan. And for the next week, I said I want you to do this. And it is not., it was not let me be really clear here. It was not about doing stuff except for self-care. Say self-care for me. If you're listening, say self-care, because I'm going to tell you the most important investment vehicle in your life is the person listening to me right now? It is you. It is you like tap your chest and feel your heart and breathe. The most important investment vehicle in your life is you baby, it's you. And so until you take care of that investment vehicle, you cannot create a return with it. You cannot go out into man what you're worth because you have to embody it first. Okay, zig Zig Ziglar says, excuse me, the order that people most have is that they believe they have to have the thing in order to be the thing like I can only have wealth when I am wealthy. And therefore it's a paradox. Because if you can only have wealth when you are wealthy, therefore you'll never be wealthy unless you already have had it to start with you might see this is also the entry-level paradox where we talk about you must have three to five years to come of experience to come into an entry-level job. Well, somebody's got to give here. Okay, and most of the time we're either going to change that job or hire people who are more experienced at a higher level or will say, oh, actually we're willing to lower the bar so that we can become the thing to in order to reach that next level. So that is The entry-level paradox. Now Stephen Covey has two ways that we actually create results in the world. He said there are two steps of creation. And if you are, if you're not listening, tune in right now because I'm gonna change your life right now. Stephen Covey, one of the most powerful mindset shifts that I've ever had seven habits of highly effective people was one of the biggest professional development plans that I went through at a really remarkable organization that truly honored their people. This is why I can teach you guys what to do. Because I lived it was the very first foundational anchoring corporate experience I had in my life. And he said, This, begin with the end in mind. Okay, now what was that means and there's if you haven't picked up Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, go do it, run, don't walk, go order it, because it will change your life. It was such a powerful mindset. So what he talked about was that in order for something to be conceptualized in the tangible world meaning of the matter, the first step of creation mid it had to happen in our mind. Okay, so right now I'm sitting in front of me and I can have a balloon animal paperweight, okay. I don't know who thought of this. But in order for me to purchase it, somebody had to think of it, and then somebody had to bring it into creation in the actual physical manufacturing, in order to put it on the shelf to buy it. So the order of what Zig Ziglar said was that you have to be in order to do the thing to have the thing I'm showing you this in action. So somebody conceptualized it, Stephen Covey said in their mind that this balloon animal paperweight was super important for them to create, byline here on this would be a timeout, I know how to create these little balloon animals. It was something I learned at a convention back when I was in middle school for future Librarians of America, believe it or not very funny in my life. So this product, when I saw this, which was the doing, right, they created the results. The doing was they created this balloon animal, and then they put it on the shelf so that I could have it be do have, if you are waiting to have a six-figure increase to get a six-figure increase, you will never get there. You will never get there. Okay. Now, some of these like, this is going to be a little bit triggering. For some people, they're going to be like, but Lindsey, I need this. And I'm going to say no, you don't I in fact, I'm going, to be honest, a lot of people love to believe that they are special snowflakes, okay? And I'm going to be first off your soul, and your circumstances of where you're at today. Your life experience and blood are just like your fingerprint, that is a special snowflake, I will give you that 100%. And I honor that and I treasure that. And I love you exactly where you're at. I love you. And I know I don't know you probably in some cases here, but I do love you because we can hate without reason we can live without reason. Okay, so I love you. I see you, I hear you. But what I want you to know is whatever you want to tell me over here, Lindsey, I can't do that because it's bullshit and I say that with love too. Because there is nothing after 15,000 people we have worked with, there is nothing we can get past except you. Your belief. If you believe that you can, or you believe that you can't. You're right. That's Henry Ford's My favorite quote, whether you believe whether you think you can, whether you believe you can, or whether you think you can't, whether you believe you can or can't. You're right, whether you think you can or whether you think you can, you're right Henry Ford. All right. And here's why the only person that matters, the only person's opinion in the whole world that really should matter to you. First and foremost is yours. And if you say you know what? look at myself in the mirror Lindsay, you know what, you can't do that, then you're right, you can't. But if something and you say you know what, I'm willing to give this a shot. And maybe I'm just cracking the door so that maybe I can have a little belief in here. I am not interested in selling you something that's not gonna change your life. And so right now I'm selling you the idea. You know, the idea is that you're a badass. If that calls to you right now, I invite you to go to and learn about my next masterclass. It's going to be intense, okay, it's going to be several hours of commitment. And I'm going to ask that you put down whatever it is your phone, your distractions, the television, Netflix, and you tune in and your watch, because right now, it's not a timing issue. It's a priority issue. If this is a priority to you, and something speaks to your soul, I asked you to go take action right now. Because in order to be the thing that you want, you have to choose to be it right now the next step is to do it, do it, do it now. Do it now and have the life that you were truly meant for. Go to Be one of my next success stories. I will never be in a place where I'm going to tell you something or sell you something that you are not capable of. I only invite people into the world that are ready, but you will get so much massive reprogramming and understanding of your worthiness and your value and how to create six-figure raises in the hottest job market that's ever existed. Now by going and showing up for that masterclass you owe it to the best version of yourself. You owe it to all the haters you owe it to all the people who told you you couldn't you owe it to that person. What's inside of you says you can't do it either. demolish those objections, do it now be the person who keeps accountability who takes responsibility and takes action and do it now so you can have the life that both you and your family and all the people falling behind you that you're influencing right now deserve. Go do it and be the person you were meant to be. Have the life you deserve. I'll see you there.
