EP418: Growing Your Company Through Hell and Back with Heather Chauvin

I am having a very raw, very real, and very fun conversation today with my colleague, Heather Chauvin. Heather is a leadership coach and strategic parenting expert who helps ambitious women become leaders at work and at home. Drawing from her professional experience as a social worker and her life experience raising 3 boys, Heather has created a signature approach to focus her clients on sustainability, profitability, and ease.

Listen in today as Heather and I discuss what it was like to be diagnosed with cancer and how that changed her mindset around work, success, and family. We’re diving into the problems with the hustle mentality and why it’s our job to teach people how to treat us. As Heather says, you don’t have to suffer to be successful. To be a leader at home and in your business, it’s about learning to trust yourself and focus on becoming the person you desire your child to be. This episode has so many great insights for you on running a business, overcoming challenges, and becoming the leader you want to be.

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

  • Heather’s first response to finding out she had cancer.
  • Why Heather used to believe that suffering leads to success.
  • How the hustle is reinforced in every aspect of our culture.
  • How switching from suffering to working strategically impacted Heather’s business.
  • The “epidural” Heather used to numb herself and how she overcame it.
  • Why the concept of non-attachment was crucial in creating her podcast.
  • Why Heather’s million-dollar minute idea is some of the best advice I’ve ever heard.
