Alli Worthington is my guest for Happy Hour #114. Alli is the author of Breaking Busy: Finding Peace and Purpose in a World of Crazy, speaker, and the Executive Director of Propel WomenHer goal is to help women live the life they were created to live. Alli co-founded multiple companies and has helped individuals, small business owners and Fortune 500 companies be more successful. Her no-nonsense, guilt-free take on business, family and balance has lead to appearances on The Today Show and Good Morning America. She has written for Huffington Post, Fox News, Redbook and more. She, her husband, Mark, and their five sons live outside of Nashville, TN. 

In our conversation, Alli shares about her life as a working mom with a household of boys. She's a big advocate of personal freedoms – which goodness, I think we could all learn a thing or two from – like, taking the pressure off ourselves to do the things that don't fit within our natural giftings or capacity. Alli and I chat about our strengths and the sexy strength of woo that neither of us possess.

If you've ever questioned your giftings and if you should pursue them, make sure to stick around for the last few minutes of the show. I felt so encouraged by Alli's motto to show up, love people, be herself and not quit.

And just in case you're wondering, I made a promise in my conversation with Alli to read the Screwtape Letters before this episode aired and of course, I haven't done it. But you should. And maybe send me a summary.

{You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends. Just use the FB & Twitter links at the end of this post!}
