Episode 17 - Get Excited About Your Future With A Clear Vision

On today’s episode, Barb Monson talks about getting unstuck and working through fears that are holding women who, like herself, were focused on all the “shoulds” in life that do not bring personal satisfaction. As a highly successful CFO, Barb walked away to find her passion in helping women to reach their potential and find the “more” in life that connects them to what they want to do.

We talk about how fear impacts everything and how stepping out of our comfort zone is the only way to grow and achieve the dream we have always wanted. There are options, but we are often blinded by fear and unable to see the way forward. We also talk about worries that continue to crop up as we find something new and how having sound strategic plans help to address those fears. Get rid of the “fake it to you make it” and find your areas of inner strengths and talents.

About the Guest:

Barb Monson is an author, speaker, and owner of a business called Move Your Mountain. As a former CFO and working mom, she knows all too well the overwhelming balancing act and the tendency for women to lose themselves in their roles. In business, Barb was known for solving problems, bringing order to chaos, and most importantly, bringing out potential. She now uses that passion to guide women who don’t like the life they’ve created but they are stuck thinking, “Now what?” Her program allows women to not only design a life where they WANT to get out of bed in the morning but get them through the hardest part: implementation. Outside of work, Barb loves the simple pleasures of cooking, hanging with friends, board games with her hubby, and a small addiction to Skinny Pop popcorn.
