Today’s episode is part of a special live streaming that Lori Buxton of AELL and I do once a month.

Lori emailed me a question before our live stream and I was so excited to chat with her about this.

Her question was,

“Do you feel more satisfied when your program or your business succeeds because of you, or without you?”

In this episode, we chat about:

  • The stories that we create for ourselves.
  • The context around the type of story that we want.
  • The leader that we want to be.
  • Who we turn to for support and validation.
  • The hero that we are in our lives.

And so much more!

Many of the answers that we talked about today are excellent predictors of the culture that you’re building and the leadership health of your company.

It was a pleasure connecting with Lori and I hope you enjoy this episode.
