Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast interview is Elizabeth Lucas-Averett, 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 Elizabeth Lucas-Averett and my 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 Ellayou can see that she is right and she is super busy.
So does she Elizabeth Lucas-Everett 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 let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Elizabeth Lucas-Averett
During the show we discussed such weighty topics as:
How you have to start somewhere to get anything done in life, and it really doesn’t matter how old you are when it happens. Simply start and do it now!
How the world will keep on handing you opportunity after opportunity, it’s just up to keep on reaching out and grabbing them.
How she remembers her yearbook stating “Never explain anything. Your true friends wont need it, and others won’t believe it anyway”
Why it is so important to not buy into the scarcity model that stops so many for starting. There is enough sunshine to go around in the world. Go out and get tanned now!
If you are going to make an assumption about an outcome then why not make the assumption that it is going to be brilliant. You will be amazed by your results.
