    Episode 61: Cherylanne Skolnicki - Brilliant Balance Founder

    Ten years ago, Cherylanne Skolnicki’s biggest fears were failure and humiliation. She had just left her job at P&G to start a coaching business that’s completely different from the work-life mentoring company that she runs today. But for Cherylanne, her first business didn’t fail. It was a pivot to get where she is today.

    On episode 61, Cherylanne shares how becoming a mother changed her, how to find your purpose, and how to re-energize your life through foundational balance practices. She also discusses how she knew it was time to leave corporate America and strike out on her own.
