Behind Her Empire Podcast: Keren Eldad On How To Get Out Of Your Way
On this episode of the Behind Her Empire podcast, hear from Keren Eldad, a motivational speaker, leadership psychology expert and founder of With Enthusiasm Coaching, where she provides world-class personal and professional coaching.
Eldad has worked with notable clients including LVMH, Richemont, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase and Global Fashion Group. She talks to us about why it's in all of our destinies to achieve greatness, the power of self-love and compassion and what we can do to get over our blindspots. As Eldad highlights, if we limit ourselves, we do not get to participate in the beauty of our lived experience. It's up to us to choose the lens through which we view life: scarcity and fear or abundance and openness.
- Eldad grew up around the world, which led to a lack of attachment to any one nationality and a sense of belonging everywhere. Her pan-world identity gave her the ability to connect with people from anywhere. She also speaks five languages.
- At one point, Eldad had the "insta-worthy" life — a handsome and rich husband, glamorous job, elegant clothes and home — but inside, she knew something was profoundly wrong. Ultimately, her dissatisfaction led to a toxic divorce.
- She hit rock bottom: broke, her belongings burned in a storage facility fire, sleeping on friends' couches -- and realized there was nowhere to go but up. So, she focused on what she still had.
- Eldad says self esteem is useless because it focuses on achievement and fitting in. It's recognizing one's self worth that allows people to start to feel grounded in who they are.
- Eldad says over-achievers' number one enemy is impatience. She says impatience is a sign of lack of faith.
- Daily recognition of things you are grateful for leads to an appreciation of the everyday large and small details of life, which in turn makes you feel like a lucky person. This attitude can create better experiences, personally and professionally.
"I always say to people 'prefer a shitstorm, because that is the turning point'." — Keren Eldad

My, how times have changed.
Five years ago, Eric Yuan, chief executive officer and founder of video conferencing company Zoom, was asked to deliver an insider's look at his business at the influential tech-savvy conference Montgomery Summit in Santa Monica.
But there was a catch: He wanted to show up online, not on the dais.
Yuan wound up giving his presentation at the Summit backed by Jamie Montgomery, who runs March Capital Partners, the Santa Monica-based venture capital firm that invests in breakthrough technology companies in person.
Ceres Group Holdings is becoming corporate America's biggest cannabis dealmaker out of its Century City offices.
The venture and private equity firm this week announced that its special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, would take Atlanta-based cannabis producer Parallel public in a merger that will value the Canadian-listed company at $1.88 billion.
Parallel has about 42 retail stores outside of California, but has big plans for a big expansion into L.A. sometime in the next year or two.
Joe Crouthers is the CEO of Ceres and head executive of the SPAC that bought Parallel.
On this week's episode of the L.A. Venture podcast, meet the one, the only, David Waxman! He's the co-founder and managing partner at the fund I work for, TenOneTen Ventures. There are few L.A. funds that have as much operational experience building and scaling large-scale companies. David talks about lessons learned building three startups, going through an IPO, a litigious board member and a couple of decades in startups. David also talks about why he thinks TenOneTen lives up to its reputation for being the "nice and nerdy" L.A. fund.
