About This Show
This podcast exists for two reasons:
1.) To add Value to You by Learning from those Ahead of Us – When I was 18 years old, I interned at a local church. My mentor encouraged me to take out a high level leader each month and ask them questions. I followed through on that and it was extremely beneficial. After 8 years of doing this, I started to feel selfish. I thought to myself, “I get to spend time with all of these great leaders and learn from them. Why don’t I record these interviews and turn them into a podcast for young leaders to listen to?” Shortly after that I started this podcast.
2.) To Add Value to You by Teaching You What I have Learned about Leadership – That same mentor handed me a leadership lesson on cd by John Maxwell. After listening to it, I was blown away. I called my mentor and asked him for every leadership lesson he had! That was the start of my obsession with personal growth. Since then, I have benefited greatly from leadership resources. Because of this, I have always endeavored to create my own resources to add value to others. As a result of that, I put a personal monthly leadership lesson on this podcast.
What You’ll Find on this Podcast:
Each month we will publish three episodes:

If I had to sum up who Laura Ellsworth is, I would say that she is the definition of a world changer. Before Laura spoke at our breakfast, I sent her a list of leadership challenges that I’ve collected from the leaders in our L3 community. She looked them over and said that she would cover every single one of the challenges in her 30 minute talk. She did! In her talk, you’ll hear Laura share 5 stories that changed her life and could have a huge impact on yours. Enjoy!
