It all started with the pursuit of joy.
Imagine how the world would look like if JOY was a required trait of leaders. If it was not only required but CELEBRATED. The world would be a place of inspiration, balance & bliss. We would live lives we don’t need a break from and inspire others to do the same. No more hustle.
True authentic leadership comes from the inside out when you let yourself show up fully is when the most impact is made. Too often in today’s world of hustle, bustle and grind do we forget to live our lives. We get trapped in toxic environments, doing jobs we don’t love and don’t see a way out.
This is why ...
