'In God's economy, NOTHING is wasted.' - Sheeba Philip: Part 2
In the last episode, we met Sheeba Philip, and she talked through some of her top successes and what God showed her through those times. In this episode, we dive into two of the major setbacks Sheeba has experienced in her professional and personal journey. As Sheeba says in this episode, “in God’s economy, nothing is wasted,” which is especially true for the times when it feels like there’s no recovering from a failure.
'If you succeed, the kingdom of God succeeds.' - Sheeba Philip: Part 1
The influential leader we will learn from this month is Sheeba Philip. A graduate of Harvard Business School, Sheeba embarked on a high-performing marketing career, helping to promote brands like Oreo and JCPenney. Although she was raised with the understanding that performance was something to be perfected and refined, Sheeba came to have a more fluid opinion on what a success and a setback are…and why God truly allows us to experience both of these happenings in our lives.
Setbacks Are a Tool to Help Us Flourish - Cheryl Bachelder: Part 2
In the last episode, we met Cheryl Bachelder, former CEO of Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen, Inc. We spent the previous episode talking about Cheryl’s top successes, and in this episode, we’re going to jump over to the list of setbacks she identified as important to how she grew as a professional and a Christian, even when in the moment, these setbacks hurt.
'I'm proudest of the opportunity to live out servant leadership.' - Cheryl Bachelder: Part 1
The influential leader we will learn from this month is Cheryl Bachelder. Cheryl built a highly successful career with companies like LifeSavers, Domino’s, and Popeyes, but a career in business was not what she originally envisioned for herself when she started college. In this episode, Cheryl and I talk through successes that she considers are defining to who she became as a professional Christian woman and who she is today.
'God is not the author of setbacks.' - Emma Sharma: Part 2
In the last episode, we met Emma Sharma, founder of Swallowtail Group. Emma shared about how a personal success of becoming an attorney quickly morphed into something of a setback as she realized it was not the direction she felt called to, and how she was able to focus on the positives and move her setback back in a successful direction more in line with what God ultimately had in store for her life. In the rest of our conversation, listen as Emma explains how key it is to remember that creating with God is always a recipe for success, and how we as Christians should stay humble and hungry to experience every emotion we are able to while we are on this Earth, good or bad.
'We are all blessed so that we may be a blessing.' - Emma Sharma: Part 1
The influential leader we will learn from this month is Emma Sharma. Emma is one of those people that you listen to and quickly understand just how important her faith is to everything she does. With a diverse background full of unique opportunities and years of high-level experience, Emma is a vast source of expert knowledge for the workplace, and an equally deep source of spiritual and personal guidance, stemming from many years of experiencing the highs and the lows that life brings all of us.
