Todays guest on Join Up Dots is a lady who I got introduced to by the wonderful Neen James that you would have heard back on episode 258 of Join Up Dots
She said David..."you have to get this hot chick on your show...she is amazing!"
Well I'm not going to turn down an introduction like that, and I can see why she feels that she is so amazing when you read in her own words.
"Who am I? I am busy, just like you. I want to live long and live STRONG, and I don’t want to obsess about it. I don’t want to rely on the expiring resource that is willpower, I want a lifestyle that works. I want my red wine, my dark chocolate, and I still want to bounce a quarter off my abs.
I don't want to "look good for my age," I want to get BETTER every day, every year. I want to track my progress and help you with yours. I am not a fitness professional, nor a health practitioner. I am a full-time business owner, a part-time triathlete, a woman with a family and a lot of responsibility, just like you. I do not have all of the answers, AND I WILL NEVER BE FINISHED, and that is the fun."
But this isn't a story about a lady who loves springing around, and balancing upside down on her head on surfboards (yep, im sure we will discuss this image later), but one of a hardworking business lady who has constantly upskilled herself and developed since starting her working life like me as a corporate trainer.
Funnily enough our lives also intertwined as she also worked as a consultant for a UK-based firm supporting the Royal Bank of Scotland/Natwest's customer growth objectives, to whom I worked for both companies in my past too.
She is the co-founder of The Trivista Group, where she supports multi-national organizations in building value through new business model development, innovative customer and supplier initiatives, and other advancements, whilst also spending as much time as she can in the outdoors training for Marathons and Ironman competitions
As well as being the host of the wellness based podcast and platform On Air With Ella you can see that she is right and she is super busy.
So does she have a way of finding more time in the day than anyone else?
And does she see her current path as exactly where she should be, or is it still part of the longer journey of life?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Elizabeth Lucas-Averett
