In this episode… Mindset is a very powerful tool that every human can utilize. It has the ability to influence people's lives either positively or negatively based on what it’s fed by the owner. For this reason, women in business and leadership positions should never overlook the power of their mindset. Instead, examine it and change your thoughts for a better life. In addition, it is important that women understand the value of taking care of themselves. Oftentimes the guilt around balancing life roles comes from the failure to take care of oneself. Women often concentrate on their spouses, kids, and other family members, and in the process overlook their own wellbeing. This often leads to resentment, guilt — and in severe cases — bitterness. So, what are some actionable tips to help you take care of yourself, your family, and cultivate a positive mindset? Dr. Pamela Ellis, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Compass Education Strategies and Compass College Advisory Center, joins Andrea Heuston in this episode of the Lead Like A Woman Show where she talks about the need for examining one's mindset and practicing self-care. She also talks about the importance of showing gratitude and following the path towards your passion. Stay tuned to hear all of Dr. Ellis’s strategies!
