Host Sherrilynne Starkie welcomes author and executive coach Julie Ellis to episode 18 of the 50 Women Over 50 podcast.
Julie is a serial entrepreneur and an angel investor who has taken several start up companies past Series A funding into high performing enterprises. She learned a lot about business and life along the way. She put that wisdom into her first book for women entrepreneurs who want to achieve great things. Published last year, the book is called Big Gorgeous Goals. It’s now available as an audio book for the first time on Audible.
Julie is someone who reached the top of her career and achieved her dream of flipping her business and yet, she was surprised when she felt sad and a sense of loss when it was gone. In this interview, she talks about learning to be kinder and gentler with ourselves as being the key to both business success as well as overall happiness.
“Remember,” she says, “When we look at people who do big, amazing things, what we are actually seeing is the highlights reel. We’re seeing all the good things, the outcomes, the great successes. What you’re not seeing is all the hard work that came before. We only see the tip of the iceberg.”
