Is the ability to handle change well to grab opportunities when they present themselves to you an inherited personality trait or is it more like a muscle, something that you can build with experience and time? My guest today, Joe Hanlon has her fair share of handling change. She's moved through careers and industries and has now landed in a place that feels really aligned with her sense of purpose in this next chapter of her life. 

"Change, cultures and conversations" they've always been a part of my life, they've been woven together in many adventures!"

Jo's story is one with many chapters, with forays from nursing to sales and self-employment across countries and continents. The environments may have changed, but the focus never did - "My purpose is to help people develop their own strengths, and I love to work with people who want to change and I made the leap into self-employment at 48 to embrace more impact, significance and contribution"

Our conversation is anchored in the concepts of self-trust, values and our ability to empower ourselves for the changes that a full and expansive life delivers.

Some of the Key Ideas discussed include:

  • Always be intentional with what you consume - the media can affect our mood enormously
  • Have a great network of people around you - reach out and find your tribe, you can't walk this path alone
  • Mistakes? Who cares! We learn from every one of them, they're ok to make!
  • There are only two states to live in - faith or fear
  • Trust that your life is unfolding exactly as it is meant to
  • Align with your purpose - it will help you to take control of your life, make decisions that serve you and be truly empowered
  • Design values-driven business - that's the secret to abundance
  • Trust your gut, your intuition, it won't lead you astray
  • Be aware of SNIOP - that's when you're Subjected to the Negative Influence of Other People
