Manage episode 192120298 series 1453213
On this Thanksgiving Eve, it’s important to remember what this holiday is all about - giving thanks for all that we have and those who surround us - rather than focusing on the stuff that will never bring us joy. It’s so serendipitous that my guest this week is Kelly Lyndgaard.Kelly is the founder and CEO of Unshattered, a social enterprise partner of a women’s recovery program. Although she’s an engineer and physicist by training, Kelly is an inveterate problem-solver and strategist at heart. Inspired by the strength and commitment of women doing the hard work of recovering from addiction at the Hoving Home, Kelly wanted to build them a path forward to sustained sobriety, independence, and economic stability. Having long admired the social business model, which uses enterprise to solve social issues, Kelly began Unshattered in 2013. In 2015, she experienced a very clear, but not easy to answer, calling out of her executive role in the technology industry to focus solely on what had been her passion project. In this episode, Kelly talks about how her entire perspective of addiction shifted after Emily, a fellow parishioner at her church, shared her family’s story of addiction. Kelly goes on to share how, with a newfound understanding and boatload of faith, she founded Unshattered. Witnessing broken lives transformed into ones of purpose, meaning and beauty, has influenced her own view of faith and the world in a profound way. Also, Kelly courageously opens up about some of her most intense self-care decisions and practices. Plus, we geek about personality tests and chat about playing to our strengths & style. I’ve found a sister, type-A soul in Kelly. When Craig finished editing this episode, he asked if I found my new BFF. Kelly’s story is beautiful. It’s one of hope, faith and deep understanding.
