Welcome to this episode of the Fail Forward podcast.
In this episode I’m talking to Amy Rowlinson, podcaster, coach and podcasting mentor.
During the next 40 minutes Amy shares the twists and turns of her career taking her from unfulfilled employee on auto-pilot to a purpose-led coach, mentor and podcaster helping others align their lives with their values and create exciting mid-life beginnings.
Amy’s passion for personal growth, her fearless approach to embracing change and her desire to seize new opportunities are evident throughout the interview. She reflects on how a rowing incident aged 14 profoundly shaped her attitude towards dealing with life’s inevitable setbacks with inspiring optimism.
As you’d expect from this podcast, together we explore how the end of a business at the start of Covid changed Amy’s direction in a way she could never have predicted - surely the true essence of failing forward!
Going beyond Amy’s journey we also talk about the importance of helping children develop a growth mindset from an early age, the value of recognising effort over outcomes and why you must discover your own values in order to build a life that aligns with them.
You can also find out what Amy’s response was when asked, “What does failure mean to you?” and hear why she believes that when you align your values with your work, you will become valued for your work.
This uplifting episode will leave you inspired to embrace intelligent risks, and open yourself to new and exciting experiences in order to ensure that where you are, is exactly where you should be.
