Happy to have a good old fashioned phone call to learn about your needs.

If you feel like you are staring at a mountain in your personal or professional life and you’re not sure how to climb it, we’ve got good news for you! During today’s conversation, we speak to Alison Levine, who has climbed to the highest peak on every continent! She has skied the North and South Poles, captained the first American Women’s Everest expedition, and that’s just the start! Whether you are a leader in a tough position or going through a tough personal season, today’s chat is for you! You’ll hear about Alison’s accolades in the hiking and skiing worlds, what it was like for her to nearly summit Mount Everest and have to turn back, and find out how she came to believe that failure is nothing more than an event in your life. This episode is full of truth bombs from Alison’s life philosophy on failure, regrouping, and progress, plus motivation from the story of her impressive feats, so we hope that you will join us to hear from this inspiring speaker, author, and athlete today!

Tweetables:

“Failure is simply one thing that happens to you at one point in time. Failure does not define you. We all know it’s how you come back from failure that is going to determine your legacy.” — @Levine_Alison [0:10:03]

“When I fail at something big, I think: either I’m paving the way for my own future success, or I am paving the way for somebody else to go on and achieve really great things.” — @Levine_Alison [0:10:44]

“The second experience – when I went back in 2010 and we did make it to the summit – I wasn’t any less afraid. The fear did not subside, but what I learned is that you can be scared and brave at the same time.” — @Levine_Alison [0:25:03

“You have to cut yourself some slack and realize that, sometimes, the process happens along the way. You don’t have to have perfect knowledge of everything before you try something. Sometimes, it’s a work in progress and you’re learning as you go.” — @Levine_Alison [0:15:57]

“Everybody should have their own personal mantra. Three words, or four, or five words, however many words you need, but some kind of phrase that describes who you are and represents your core values.” — @Levine_Alison [0:21:39]
