Self-leadership: It Starts With You!
Self-leadership: It Starts With You!
Today I get to interview the lovely Ashlee Livingstone. Ashlee is a mom, wife, and entrepreneur who loves the life she has designed for herself. She considers herself to be creative, passionate, sassy & focused on making a positive impact. Here is a little more about Ashlee: At one point (or many points) in my life if you had asked me what my future looks like I knew I wanted it to involve great love and freedom, but I was living from a place of survival and stuck with old stories, so I never thought it possible. When I had my son, I saw so much possibility for him. It was like holding a mirror to myself. I saw myself in him & I realized that if I wanted him to dream, reach for his goals, live his best life without fear, comparison, judgment & full of confidence then I had to set the example. And I couldn’t just read a book about it……I had to do something about it. Since then, I have shed old stories, set new goals, faced new fears & live the life I was meant to live but it didn’t come without asking for help.  In my business @ourforte I pay it forward. I help people go from where they are to where they want to be. My goal is to help people find the joy within themselves, in their jobs, their teams & lives.  I love being a witness to other people's growth, watching them release old stories & step into who they want to be & how they want to live. In this episode Ashlee talks about why self leadership is such an important skill to develop, what steps you can take to develop your self-leadership, and how boundaries can be one of those amazing tools in your life.   THE WHOLEHEARTED MOM INSTAGRAM COMMUNITY https://www.instagram.com/thewholehearted.mom/ GUEST SPEAKERS  Instagram: @Ashlee.Livingstone  THE WHOLEHEARTED MOM SHOW-NOTES www.sarahreckman.com/11 SPREAD THE WORD!!!
