Welcome back to “The Leaders Table.”  I’m your host, Diana Murphy, and today’s episode is truly special. Joining me is the incredible Kristen Rocco, who specializes in bold and noteworthy branding, —a theme that resonates deeply with my own journey into more vulnerable, authentic business practices.

Kristen and I first crossed paths at a networking dinner, and it was instantly clear that we shared similar values and experiences. Today, we dive into the concept of the “Midlife Click” versus the midlife crisis. This idea, brought to the table by Kristen, explores how significant life transitions can lead to powerful moments of clarity and transformation, rather than crisis.

We also unpack the nuances of branding, the importance of aligning your business with your personal values, and how to make bold moves that resonate with your core identity. Kristen’s approach to marketing focuses on building nurturing relationships between brands and their audiences, a philosophy that has significantly influenced my own branding experiences.

Lastly, Kristen shares the “Bold Moves Recipe,” a framework she’s developed from her own experiences and those of her podcast guests, which includes understanding your desires deeply, leveraging your relationships (the ‘who’), and taking decisive action.

This episode is for anyone standing at the crossroads of a significant life decision, contemplating their next big move. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a corporate executive, or someone exploring your next chapter, there’s something in this conversation for you.

Thank you for joining us at “The Leaders Table.” Remember, your journey is as significant as the destination. Embrace it, and make your next move boldly.
