Most days, you have a to-do list that’s brimming with responsibilities and errands, all begging for a checkmark. 

But here’s a question…

Where is your name on that list? 

Cultivating strength through your own thought leadership is a BIG component of boundary-building. 

But in order to get there and start to pave your path towards your best living and your most meaningful work, you’ve got to be on your list, too.

This week, Karlee explains why, in order to create the boundaries that will sustain you, you’ve got to trust yourself. And in order to built that trust, you have to become your own trusted thought leader. 

In this episode, we’ll revisit the definition of a healthy boundary and learn why boundaries and thought leadership go hand in hand. You’ll hear stories from thought leaders who bounced back from the boundary deep end and found themselves in much calmer waters. You’ll also learn why boundaries become easier with time, and why creating them doesn’t have to equal drama.  

If you’re ready to be the more nourished, steady, and enlivened version of yourself (that you know is hiding in there somewhere) then this episode is for you.
