EP24: Let’s Drop Our Boxes

As a high achiever, I have always had this blueprint or set of checkboxes that I needed to hit or “check off” in my life and career. Can you relate

Here are some examples of the checkboxes I’m talking about.

• Get a degree.

• Get my first job.

• Advance in my next job.

• Advance some more.

• Get a management job.

• Get a bigger management job.

• Get married.

• Have children.

• Have scheduled birthday parties for my kids every few years.

• Schedule play dates for my kids, including swim lessons and sports.

• Be the family’s event planner and general touchstone for everything.

• And the list goes on.


In this episode, we explore where these checkboxes came from and what we can do about them to allow ourselves some much-needed rest. If we give ourselves a break from checking these boxes, we will be better for it.

Book Your Discovery Call

How much would you give to sit across a coach who was trained to help women just like you get clear, overcome their obstacles and take action to achieve their career goals? Well, for anyone serious about their career, the price would be quite high and worth every penny. But for a short time, for a small number of people, I’m offering that opportunity…without charge.

That’s right, with my Discovery Call you have the chance to work with me one on one, absolutely free. Typically a session like this is $250, but I’m waiving the fee for anyone who applies today.

Because I hold these calls personally, there are very few spots available, so if you’re serious about about finding your dream career and would like the guidance and support of a trained expert, use the calendar provided to apply for your session now.
