“Cancer has brought me so many blessings in terms of lessons and rediscovering who I am and what I wanted in life.” - Mayda Poc

Mayda Poc is an international life and career coach for executives in fast paced industries, with a background of over 16 years in the investment banking industry. She’s received multiple certifications and accreditations and speaks four languages.

Mayda left investment banking after her diagnosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma - but not right away. After having another life-changing event, she then changed her fast-paced life and started focusing on helping others find fulfillment and purpose in their lives - whether they stay in their fast paced careers or not. 

Discussed in this episode:

  • How mental programming and societal expectations can be like muscle memory that needs to be observed and questioned.
  • Recognizing and reframing self-criticism as a habit that no longer serves a purpose.
  • The identity shift that happens when you’re no longer being defined by your productivity, earning power, and success.
  • Embracing personal choices and having the courage to start over, without apologizing for pursuing a different path.
