What a fabulous person to kickstart the podcast - the woman who not only epitomises the "seize the yay" life philosophy, but who has dedicated her life to helping others do the same. Yep, our first guest is the entrepreneur for entrepreneurs, Lisa Messenger - CEO of Messenger Group, founder of globally acclaimed Collective Magazine, prolific author, inspiring speaker and all-round legend.
When I met her a few years ago, I was completely taken aback by her uncensored, down to earth and crazily passionate nature belying the seriously successful CEO that she is on paper. She hasn't changed one bit and is all the more inspiring for her openness and authenticity. Her latest book, Risk and Resilience, shares in surprising detail the nitty gritty of her rollercoaster closure of the much-loved Collective Magazine and we caught up to chat a bit more about why the biggest loss in her career has turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
If there's anything I wanted for Seize the Yay, it's to show some of the less glamorous behind the scenes of finding your "yay" and explore the ups and downs of creating a life you love. Lisa has gotten us off to an amazing start, showing the importance of pivoting, cultivating resilience and finding the silver lining.
