104: Embrace The Art of Showing Up with Shadeed Eleazer


In this episode, I had an insightful convo with Shadeed Eleazer, Baltimore’s leading Small Business Advisor. Half of being an entrepreneur revolves around building a network and the other half is all about nurturing that network. This discussion is striking to me because, as entrepreneurs, we always engage in transactions, barely noticing that our relationships are gradually turning transactional as well- solely need-based, without the human element of it. In relation to that, Shadeed talks about being intentional as to why, where, and how we show up, and for whom should we primarily do it for. He also discusses how to deal with the dynamic nature of relationships, understand the Power Circle concept, being founded on your core values, and so much more!


 “If you want to balance, you have to think about what you stand for as if it’s the contract by which you see the world and the agreements that you keep with the world around you.” -Shadeed Eleazer
