Striking a balance: Barbara Majeski on managing media exposure, adversity, and leadership

Welcome to The Female Founder Show! Our guest today is the incredible Barbara Majeski, creator of the More Life Collective, well-known television personality, a formidable force in the realm of lifestyle advice, and keynote speaker. With appearances on Fox and Friends, Good Day New York, New York Live, and ASBN, there’s no doubt that Majeski is a force to be reckoned with. Together, we’ll explore what drives her through difficult moments and the crucial role of maintaining optimism in a world where these qualities can completely transform our experiences. 

Majeski is adjusting to her second act of life after receiving a late-stage cancer diagnosis in 2015 and going through chemotherapy in 2016, all while managing a “dumpster fire” divorce. She says, “We may not be able to control certain events in our lives, but we can control how we respond to them.” She further voices that balancing a fulfilling lifestyle is “elusive.” Since we can’t always be all things to everyone, it’s essential to recognize that the pendulum will continue to swing, no matter the lifestyle choice. However, the moniker curator of the “Good Life” to Majeski refers to being true to you and standing in your authentic self. Authenticity boils down to purpose, style, and adventure; it’s about being yourself and not fitting into the preconceived notions that society has taught us to believe. 

Moreover, to obtain more media exposure, Majeski outlines three factors entrepreneurs need to take into account:

  1. You have to know what the audience wants and be persistent. If you write a book and want to go on television, you have to figure out why your audience would be interested in it or why the producers would be interested.
  2. Be tenacious so you can capitalize on and expand upon your social media presence.
  3. Thirdly, before appearing on television, you need to receive media training.

While in her 20s, Majeski wished she knew what she knew now. Therefore, she addresses her younger self and other twentysomethings in the business world to be grateful for what they have. “What you appreciate, appreciates,” she asserts. Consequently, she advises others to practice gratitude and be grateful for what they have while they have it. Yes, comparing ourselves to others on social media can be easy, but it’s important to remember that they often only post their highlight reels. Although, if you can practice gratitude, you can manifest a higher frequency that can translate into abundance. 

“We all go through adversity, it’s whether we decide to grow bitter or better through our own jurisdiction.” – Barbara Majeski
