Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast, is Eldonna Lewis Fernandez a lady who has had a career that can be split into two clearly defined halves.
The first half was based firmly in the military, as over 23 years she was employed by the air force as a negotiator and contracts expert.
The air force used her to negotiate contracts from $1 to over $100 million both stateside and internationally.
She was deployed to the Middle East after 911, has worked in the White House, and even holds a Top Secret security clearance and has been a trusted agent of the U.S. Government for 30 years.
But upon leaving the military, Eldonna didn’t just consider the skills that she had honed, to be only useful in her past life, but has taken those very same skills and brought them into the corporate world.
She now specializes in training people how to think like a negotiator by creating win win results and understanding the pitfalls to avoid.
Now if that isn’t enough, Eldonna Lewis Fernandez is also an international award winning speaker and an award winning author of two books “Think Like A Negotiator, 50 Ways to Create Win Win Results by Understanding the Pitfalls to Avoid” and “GoPINK Rules of Engagement 5 Foundational Principles for Taking Control of the Handlebars of Your Life.”
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Harly Davison riding, Eldonna Lewis Fernandez.
During the show we discussed such weighty subjects such as:
How she found it so difficult to separate herself from the marks left by her alcoholic parents, bad relationships, and awful childhood!
Why it is so important to make sure that you surround yourself with people that are smarter than you!
How a life in the military gave her the structure she needed in her life after her difficult childhood!
How everyone across the globe wants the same things: connections, success, stability and love, but so few people work towards getting those things!
How the Harley Davison motorbike, allows her to escape the structure that she loves so much in her life…and how that is so good for her spirit!
