When we set out with good intentions to reach our goals, we never prepare ourselves for those moments we just want to quit and throw in the towel! But, if we can press in to the discomfort, the inconvenience, the hard work, the challenge, and lean into our support system, we can accomplish anything we set out to do. In this week’s podcast, Bethany shares the joy of accomplishing her goal in podcasting and the challenge to not quit!
As a leader, whether in business, a high school coach, or church ministry lead, we can easily get in the habit of problem-solving and bringing solutions all by ourselves.

In this week's podcast, Bethany shares the value of bringing the whole team to the table to be innovative, creative, and tap into the energy needed to reach our goals and accomplish the mission!
We are naturally forward thinkers; looking to the future for the next significant accomplishment and milestone. Whether with our careers, family life, finances, or personal dreams and goals, remaining present to the process we are in can be difficult, and at times, feel totally restrictive. Yet, it is in the process, the pathway of our journey, that prepares us for our future. In this week's podcast, listen as Bethany shares the importance of staying present and stopping to smell the roses along the way.
Potential is having the capacity to become or develop into something successful in the future. Based on that definition, we all have great potential. However, if we never do anything with it, it will always be just great potential. We have to learn to put our potential into motion in our own lives and encourage others to do the same. In this week's podcast, Bethany talks about how it is more than just seeing your potential, it's time to take action and move forward in it!

Purposeful connections are possible when you make time work for you.

Listen as Bethany shares her story on the importance of writing out your yearly goals and accomplishing all that you set out to do.
