It's not often that we get to sit down with someone we have admired for a long time. This week, I'm sharing an interview that resulted from my opportunity to do exactly that.

I have admired Nancy Lyons, CEO of Clockwork, for quite a few years. She is all of the good stuff, wrapped up together in one person.

Strong? CHECK!

Opinionated? CHECK!

Gumption and self-confidence for days? CHECK!

Gives good hugs? DOUBLE-CHECK!

You are not going to want to miss this episode of the podcast. Nancy shared so much wisdom with us all, including:

  • How she cultivated all of that gumption
  • The impact of our actions on the next generation
  • Why we're so unengaged at work and how to fix it
  • The importance of living life to the fullest
  • How to practice and cultivate positivity
  • The importance of silencing your inner critic
  • The impact of women supporting women

I'm beyond thrilled to introduce you all to Nancy Lyons!
