I have had the honor and privilege to talk with many women this past year about their businesses.  I have loved every moment our conversations.  Truthfully, today's podcast was just a little bit different.  Meredith Haberfeld, Founder of ThinkHuman leadership development firm, an organization that works with cool companies like Soul Cycle and Spotify, spoke to and of things that have really stuck with me since our recording.  Not only do I connect with some of the things she discussed (business divorce, iterative businesses, wanting to make an impact) I was also inspired by this power, knowledge and confident enthusiasm from within the conversation.  When asked what she wanted to be when she grew up and her answer was Secretary of State, I laughed because it seemed so post on.  Meredith is making waves, no doubt about it. 

My Key Take-Aways

  1. Wait, I'm not the only one to go through a devastating business divorce? 
  2. Wait, you want to break things on purpose to make them better?  Phew - me too!
  3. Wait, how do you help people have personal responsibility, live raw and honestly AND turn that into "quantum results"?
  4. Her heart is called to have and make an impact.  She's sorting through the HOW now.  (YES!)
  5. More and more the world has become a place where purpose and profit can intersect. (Yes!)
  6. Focus on bringing one's legacy true. Focus on fulfilling one's vision. 
  7. "Life is messy and humiliating ridden with failure, tell the truth about it all.... (and so becomes the more joyful) path!"
