"If I can impact someone's life - if I can leave someone feeling more encouraged and more brave than before they met me, then that's success to me."

The visionary behind #theimperfectboss movement shares the journey of discovering her version of success and making it happen.

"It's been more the journey of trying new things...and being willing to get up and try again and get up and try again..."

"If you're in this, there has to be a fire inside you somewhere."

This week, I’m coming at you with something new that I’m pretty excited about!

As you might know, I’m obsessed with grit and the part it plays in our success stories.

To be clear, when I say "grit", I'm not talking about dirt or being edgy. Grit is a term in psychology for a person's passion for a specific long-term goal, combined with the powerful motivation to achieve that's dogged persistence and commitment.

Grit = The Long Game

I’ve been interviewing some pretty amazing and inspiring people who have all created their own unique versions of success.

Every month, starting today, I’m breaking up the blog and bringing you a fresh, real-life look behind the scenes with inspiring individuals who have created their version of success and the grit that got them there.

My intention is to give you inspiration, motivation, and insight into what really goes on and what it takes to make it happen.

I’m getting this party started with my first guest, Ashley Beaudin!
