How do you know you are Living Smart?
“Number one, I know that I’m living smart when I show up in my most positive way, where my strengths are working for me, when I’m creative and I’m insightful, and I can inspire other people. How I get there is that I have to keep all of those aspects of myself nourished. What I mean by that is I’m not just working. I’m not just tending to the family. I’m also doing things for me. I’m expressing my creative side. I’m keeping fit and exercising. All of those things are important to me, and I think it’s really understanding where your priorities are and nourishing every aspect of those things.” - Laura Lopez
On Living Smart she’ll share leadership skills you can use at work and at home.
