50. In Loving Memory…Lessons on Loss


#50: In Loving Memory…Lessons on Loss



Today’s episode is a little bit different. I lost a very dear friend of mine recently. She was so young, only 42 years old. One day she was perfectly fine, no health problems to speak of, and the next she’d experienced a heart attack and passed away 24-hours later. I’m sharing this with you today because it has been placed on my heart to speak about time, and how it is so precious, fragile, and fleeting.

So many of us entrepreneurs pride ourselves on being busy, being productive, hitting certain number goals. People will remember your impact on their lives and the lives of those around you. How are you impacting your corner of the world? 

I’ll leave you with this if you were given 6-healthy months to live, what would you be doing differently today? What would you start doing, stop doing, and keep doing? Let me know! Send me a message, leave a review, let me know how you would change your life if you knew you wouldn’t be around tomorrow. 

Then remember… everyone’s time here is short! You’re not guaranteed tomorrow. Stay tuned to the end of the episode and hear my prayer for all of those experiencing a period of bereavement.
