    Building Resilience & Achieving Your Life Goals

    My guest today is author of the new book; Breakproof 7 Strategies to Build Resilience and Achieve Your Life Goals. She is also a global keynote speaker and a world record holding mountaneer. 
    Jenn Drummond is more than a speaker, author and mountaneer; she is a catalyst for change. As a devoted mom of seven and a successful entrepreneur, her journey through a near-fatal car crash to the peaks of the world’s tallest mountains is a testament to her unbreakable spirit. Her mission goes beyond personal achievement – it’s about guiding others to find their resilience and conquer their own summits.
    Jenn’s BreakProof philosophy isn’t about avoiding failure; it’s about learning to rise stronger from it. She believes that it’s in our most vulnerable moments that we discover our true strength. Join us today, and embark on a journey to transform vulnerability into victory, and challenges into opportunities for growth.
    In our conversation today, you’ll not only be inspired but also equipped with the mindset and strategies to create your best life and become genuinely BreakProof.

    You Have Seven Seconds, Make Them Count with Sylvie Di Giusto

    You Have Seven Seconds, Make Them Count with Sylvie Di Giusto

    Our guest today is none other than Sylvie Di Giusto. I am going to tell you right now, this is a can't miss episode. After you listen to today's conversation, please come back to the show notes and watch the incredible trailer to her immersive keynote speech and then do yourself a favor and follow her on social, buy the book and be ready to be engulfed in incredible thought provoking content.
    More than a decade ago, Sylvie made one of the best decisions of her life by leaving her successful twenty-year corporate career in Europe and bringing her young family across the Pond to America with a newborn on her lap. She exercised what she has since called the Power of Choice, a conscious decision-making framework that allows us to understand our perceptions, choose our behaviors, and determine our best outcomes.
    Now, extraordinary leaders and professionals at many of the most respected organizations, associations, and government agencies in the world—from American Express to American Airlnes, Hilton to Nespresso, Microsoft to Prudential, and even the US Airforce - trust Sylvie to help them make the right decisions to grow their brands and bottom lines.
    Building on her five cornerstones of Modern Emotional Intelligence—visual, behavioral, verbal, digital, and social intelligence—she gives her audiences the Power of Choice to determine their greatest outcomes in leadership, sales, and customer experience. She takes them on a thought-provoking and immersive journey through the brain, the mind, from the unconscious to the conscious—and ultimately to the heights of personal, professional, and organizational success.
    She is one of fewer than 12 percent of speakers worldwide who received the Certified Speaking Professional designation, 11-time award winner, the author of "The Image of Leadership," and the “Discover Your Fair Advantage: Leverage Your Unique Selling Points and Human Potential for Work, Business and Life,” and the mind behind dozens of innovative mobile online courses, including "How You Impress".
    When she is not working, she is volunteering with the National Speakers Association and the Global Speakers Federation. When she is not volunteering, she is racing more than 102 floors in the stairwells of some of the highest buildings around the world, cruising around on her boat in sunny Florida, or she is spending time with he two wonderful teenage children who test her emotional intelligence e.v.e.r.y single day.
    This show is dedicated to Sylvie’s journey, this conversation is what we make it. This is Counsel Culture.
