'Words of Wisdom' Day 3 featuring Linda Goodspeed

What does 'community' mean and look like to you: 
“For me, it's the different group of friends that I have. I have my community from my temple, I have my coaching community , I have my different work communities that include people from my different jobs and of course those from my elementary, high school and college.”

What words of advice do you have for women seeking out deeper community and connection:
“You need to peel the layers off of yourself. And you must allow to show yourself to be vulnerable and take a chance. Not to be so polite and careful. I think this is why many women aren't successful connecting with men, because they aren’t real enough. Need to be real, open and authentic.”

What are your thoughts when it comes to personal growth:
“ You need to continually grow. If you are getting married, or pregnant, you may need to take a break for a bit. But in each job you should take on something new or move to a new role once you know 80% of it. Challenge yourself to grow. Don't be too comfortable.”

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be: 
“Never stop going to the gym you idiot! ha-ha. I think I grew 
throughout my life and I am thankful for it. I have had a wonderful time learning about life, and about myself and allowing myself the luxury of getting certified in coaching. I love that.”

What do you love about being a woman:
“The power in it.”
