How to Balance a Family Legacy with Building Your Own

'How do I move on from my iconic entrepreneurial history and show up authentically to build my own legacy?'


Every week on the SPARKED podcast, we invite a listener to share what’s going on in their work & life, then pose a specific question to Jonathan Fields and a rotating lineup of wise and kind mentors - the SPARKED Braintrust. 

In today’s episode we’re in conversation with:


Jenny is a podcaster, career and business strategist, and an award-winning author of three books: Life After College, the groundbreaking Pivot for navigating what’s next, and her recently published Free Time for optimizing what’s now. 

LISTENER: Joy - Sparketype: Advisor/Essentialist

QUESTION: Listener Joy shares a fascinating story of growing up with an iconic entrepreneurial legacy, becoming involved in that family business, then starting, running and selling multiple companies before moving into the coaching space. After losing momentum during the pandemic, and now being ready to step back into coaching in a more authentic, focused way, she asks, when you’re rebuilding, how do you find the confidence to show up, ignore all the shiny object advice that can so easily take you off track, and build around who you really are and what you need and want to offer? When it comes to building a coaching practice Joy asks, how do you put yourself out there in an authentic way? And when building a business in a saturated market, how do you avoid the comparison trap and find the courage to stay in your lane and own your unique talent and offering?
