Favorite Part About My Job: Helping smart, busy and motivated people find sustainable solutions to challenging people and business problems, avoid burnout and love what they do again!

Steadfast Do's and Don'ts: Do's: Know your clear Purpose, have a plan to put it into action. Awareness by itself is overrated, it takes ACTION to get lasting results! Make a habit of investing your energy, attention and time in your professional and personal development. Prioritize prioritizing. Don't:: Don't always believe what you think. Have a proven process to check out limiting beliefs and replace with beliefs that propel you forward instead of hold you back! Don't bother with trying to achieve "work/life balance" because there's no such thing. Instead, try "work/life integration." Don't accept the status quo or "just because we've always done it this way."

Most important qualities of a good leader: To know and communicate your clear purpose. To listen and communicate effectively and authentically. To be empathetic and seek to understand another's perspective. To be lazy (or efficient) and manage your energy, attention and time. Prioritize prioritizing. To achieve work-life integration (because there's no such thing as work-life balance) you must make recharging your batteries a priority to build your capacity and resilience so you can be "built to last for the long haul" and avoid burnout.

My Advice for women starting their careers: 1) To know and communicate the answers to "Who am I? Where am I going? and Why am I going there?" and make career decisions that align with your core values and clear purpose. 2) Ensure there's a good fit between you and the culture of the organization you want to work for. 3) Learn to communicate with confidence and be assertive without being arrogant. 4) Know and demonstrate your value and your strengths (i.e., your personal brand) 5) Understand the system and "rules of engagement" in an organization and be willing to appropriately disrupt the status quo.

Advice I wish I'd had (or had followed): Out of 100 people, one third won't like you or what you have to say, the second third will be on the fence and the last third will love what you say. Focus on the last group, not the first.

Quote I live By: "Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them" - Robert Jarvik
