empowering women and impact driven business models

E17: Share Your Light: Impact Business Show

In business, Impact Business Show, podcast by Annelise

For the second week in a row on the podcast, I sat down with Lynda Cormier of Heroic Joy. Although in real-time, this was actually a few months apart. 

Lynda is one of the most sought-after Personal Development Speakers, Coaches, and Business Executives today. She is both the published author and facilitator of the award-winning Breakthrough Living Personal Development/Coaching Program, the creator of the Roots and Wings Initiative that teaches leadership, personal growth, and ‘team’ to teenagers and young adults, as well as the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of GIA, an international wellness company that Lynda guided from a local startup to an international, multi-million dollar success story.

Following years of success in sales and corporate training, Lynda lent her formidable expertise to executives of Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries. The results from Lynda’s success formula speak for themselves, as she has helped businesses grow their sales from as little as $20K per month to over $10M per year, while also helping thousands of individuals reach their personal, physical, relationship, and career goals. Lynda has also been selected into the elite circle of “10 Inspirational, Phenomenal Global Women” and will be featured in an upcoming PBS documentary and book about “The New Paradigm for Changing the World”. In 2020, she launched her personal coaching and leadership program, “The Journey to Heroic Joy” and the “Heroic Joy Academy,” which help aspiring women entrepreneurs step into their personal power by discovering their North Star goals. Lynda resides on the beautiful Southern California coast with her husband and two daughters, who she calls her daily inspiration.

In this episode, we spoke about empowering women, impact-driven business models, sharing your vision, and spreading your light in the world.

We discussed true and genuine connection, and how that is what is at the heart of really great business. And life. 

We also talked about expectations. Expectations of our businesses of others, and of ourselves. 

It was a complete joy to spend time with this absolute powerhouse of a woman who is so generous with her time, her wisdom and her gifts.
