Happy Valentine's Day! Are you ready to fall in love with your life and career?

On today’s show I chat with Kirsten Franklin, a former attorney, who has faced more than her share of challenges. Kirsten’s motto, “identify, adapt, thrive” has helped her become the success that she is today, and helped millions of others recognize their own self worth to achieve their dreams. Kirsten is a true inspiration, this chat will make you believe that you too can be the designer of your perfect life.


What you’ll learn:

  • Discovering the difference between running away from something and running towards something
  • How to get into alignment with your values
  • The importance of finding the definition of success for yourself
  • Cues to discover your true feelings about any decision
  • The importance of prioritizing in order to create your ideal life
  • Kirsten’s perspective on goal setting


Best Advice for Finding Happiness

“100 percent mindset, it’s how they’re framing things, it how they’re viewing things, and it’s what they’re choosing to be right for them, that’s 100 percent it.”


“It’s 100 percent taking responsibility for yourself, for learning for growing and for prioritizing.”
