Lets Be Honest Before We Start Pretending

Jul 5, 2021

In today’s episode, we are going to be talking about what it means to play a bigger game in life from a place of abundance and authenticity as a leader and the impact that has on you and your dreams, and aspirations. 

We have an amazing guest here who I am so excited to share with you as she truly comes from a place of abundance, authenticity, and always creating an impact in the world. She is a recent graduate of LIFt the leadership impact forum training where she committed to and continues to be in bold action towards realizing her dreams and contributions in the world.  She is an impact maker, an amazing Coach, one of our fantastic coaches on the Fall LIFt 2021 Team, and I am thrilled to have her on the podcast today.  


Shirley Patterson established Charis Coaching and Consulting with a mission to empower individuals and organizations to reach their goals. Her purpose is “to ignite a spirit of hope and purpose in people in a way that supports and encourages them to embrace and achieve “what’s possible!”
