I'm pretty excited to have been quoted in Inc. Magazine this week as a leadership expert along with several others sharing our best leadership tips!
Here is my excerpt:
"My leadership philosophy is this: whether you are leading yourself or leading others, a little bit of 'why' goes a long way! This means good leaders are clear on the vision, mission, purpose, values for themselves and their business. They are able to inspire others with this why and compel them to join forces with them and be passionate about going on this road together to accomplish that why. It also means the leader is able to connect the why in any situation to any person or employee, when providing corrective feedback they are able to share the impact of why that situation is important and why a different outcome is important in the future. From the janitor to the CFO, the leader can provide a compelling why for how their role fits into the larger picture and contribute in an important way to the overall mission."
Anna Olson, the CEO of AMO Consulting

To your success!
I just wanted to share a link to an interview I had recently on The Celebrate Life Show!
Jean Robor was kind enough to invite me on as a guest to share my story on how I decided to leave the corporate world and start my own business and move to a tropical island! In this interview I share my tips on creating the life of your dreams, doing it afraid and leading yourself well.
I hope that you find some value in this! Click on the link to go to listen to a replay of the show: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jeanbaileyrobor/2015/02/11/celebrate-life-leading-yourself-well-with-anna-olson
The number one thing that women leaders tell me has them stressed out is not having enough time.
Time to work on their businesses, time to work on themselves, time to spend quality time with their loved ones, time for fun.
For many this results in burnout, mommy guilt, poorer quality projects, a constant feeling of being rushed, missing out on fun things with friends or family events and milestones...the list goes on! There is just too much to do, and too little time. I know how you feel and it's not fun!
But it doesn't have to be that way. The truth is, I have just as many hours in the day as Oprah and every other successful person I admire. And so do you.
We can create amazing lives if we choose to lead ourselves and others well. Great leaders understand how to leverage the value of their time and the time of others around them. We have choices to make and multiple options for support, but sometimes we need a little help accessing them and taking back control of our time.
Once I realized that I have the power to control my time, I don't miss out on the important stuff anymore (holidays, weddings, graduations), I have created non-negotiables on my schedule, I have built in time for me, time for the people I love, time for my business, and time for fun.
Ladies, I want you to take back control of your time too! So, I have created a FREE ebook for those of you who would like to find an extra 10-15 hours per week in your schedule to do more of the things you love. A Superwoman's Guide to Rescue Time: Six Steps to Doing More of What You Love
