I first connected with Joshua and Julie Ledbetter’s work a few years ago. They have a huge online presence helping people build a healthier relationship with food, fitness and their body. They are positive and inspiring. They live out their faith well.
From Julie’s site:
The podcast where I empower you to just be you. With each episode, I dish you a dose of real talk and actionable advice for building the body you want, creating unshakeable confidence and embracing your authentic self. Tune in if you’re ready to let go of your insecurities and embrace your real. Let’s get it, let’s go!
Tricia Sciortino is an amazing person and fantastic leader. She knows how to challenge and call out the best in others. Her and her husband Paul are good people.
Tricia is the CEO of BELAY and is releasing this book on January 26, 2021. If you’ve ever struggled delegating and maximizing your personal genius, this book is for you.
As a leader, Tricia knows firsthand how difficult it is to delegate. She knows it takes time to set up systems and processes and to get to know someone so well they can answer emails as if they were you. She knows it takes time to build trust and let go.
As a former EA, she also knows how difficult it is to be an assistant to high-achieving leaders who are so busy that they don’t want to slow down long enough to delegate. She knows how hard it is to watch them suffer from over-scheduling and over-promising. No amount of proactiveness can overcompensate for the lack of delegation.
So her book, Rise Up and Lead Well: How Leveraging An Assistant Will Change Your Life & Maximize Your Time, seeks to address that very dynamic, as viewed from both sides of the desk, so both leaders and assistants can maximize their productivity and strike the work-life balance they both deserve.
I highly encourage ladies to check out Mary Hyatt’s Living Fully Alive podcast. Mary is a holistic life and business coach. She is on a mission to help high achieving women come back to life, recover from burnout, love their bodies again and find their passion for life.
I’m linking to the most recent episode. In it, Mary interviews her mom, Gail Hyatt. It was a wonderful conversation about purpose and how that purpose expresses it self during different seasons. If you’ve ever struggled embracing where you are, I’d encourage you to listen to this episode. One of my favorite refrains throughout the episode is: your life matters. You are not an accident.
