176: Take the Lead: Epilogue, Acknowledgments, Closing Remarks


What does it mean to be a leading lady? 

Our summer read of Take The Lead is coming to a close and this question is what I’m reflecting on. If you’re just tuning in, I’ve been reading one chapter per episode from my own book for the last 12 episodes, and in this one, I’m winding things down with the epilogue and acknowledgments, plus I’m sharing some reflections on how I feel a year after the book’s release. 

In this episode, I talk about the value of sharing our stories, what it really means to be a leading lady, and why the world needs you. Yes, YOU! I hope you enjoy hearing my thoughts on the purpose of Take The Lead and what it was like to write it. It’s been really interesting for me to reread the whole book a year later and see how much I’ve grown even in that time. 

A leading lady has to learn and grow; a leader can’t stay the same forever. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • What it really means to be a leading lady
  • Why I love the “LEADER” acronym 
  • How to honor your role as a leader in different seasons of your life 
  • Allowing yourself you learn, grow, and change 
  • Navigating seasons of surviving and thriving 
  • The most valuable lessons I’ve learned about leadership
  • How to turn the ups and downs in life from threats to opportunities
  • What it was like to write Take The Lead

Thank you for joining me as I reread this book. Whether you choose to listen to the whole thing, buy a copy for yourself, or just listen to a few chapters here and there, I hope you take something valuable away from it.
