How do you build the career and life you want - especially with chaos swirling around you, throwing out roadblocks at every turn. Only when you understand that the world isn't set up to optimize, can you begin the journey to uncover your best and lead your life with intention. Bottom line: life is the ultimate experience model. You don't come with an operating manual that tells you how to be your best. You just have to figure it out to find the things that work. And the discovery is never done. You have to stay engaged, curious, and willing to admit you don't know everything, so you can learn more to be your best. Dedicating yourself to the lifelong discipline of practice outlined in Grounded allows you to see what works and most importantly stay in tune with what grounds you at every turn of your journey.
The questions change as people move through their lives. In their 20s, people wonder where to begin. In their 30s, people wonder if they are headed in the right direction. In their 40s, they may begin to wonder if this is all there is. And in their 50s and beyond, they wonder what should happen in the next chapter. This notion of being grounded isn't about age, it's about attitude. Your life will have impact. Choices will be made. Grounded is dedicated to building the skill so you decide, not someone else. Your life is simply too important to leave it to chance. And if you choose to lead others, Grounded is dedicated to inspiring others to be their best because you have done the work to understand how to lead first yourself and now others.

I am inspired by this author and her work. The steps to success and doing the hard work is something most don’t do. Great awakening.

Loved this book!
I really enjoyed listening to this book!
As a young professional interior designer building my business and growing my clientele basis, I took tons of notes as to how I can create even better experiences and expectations for my clients. Coming from a different design background than my co-workers, I always struggled with not fitting into their typical sales mold. After reflecting on how I do things very differently I realized how this is actually my greatest asset. Grounded gave me the much needed confidence to learn, un-learn and re-learn what works for me or how to reach a goal. I know these key teachings will continue to project my career forward.
As my clientele builds and projects come in faster than I can work on them, navigating work/life balance I’m finding is also a challenge. Nancy’s advice reminds me that my time spent alway from work is what really defines me. Truly living my best life will bring success to all areas of my being.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to live with intention and/or build their career.
