Episode 51: Cultivating What Matters with Lara Casey
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO GOAL PLAN WHEN GROWING A BUSINESS?
This week I sat down with author, publisher and speaker, Lara Casey.
Lara Casey is a mom to three (one through the gift of adoption), a grateful wife, and a believer in the impossible (she and her husband have quite the story!). She is passionate about helping people get unstuck, unrushed, and living on purpose instead of by accident. To help with those things, she created the PowerSheets™, a grace-filled goal setting planner, the Write the Word™ journals, and founded Southern Weddings a decade ago. You can read her whole story in her first book, Make It Happen: Surrender Your Fear, Take the Leap, Live On Purpose. You can meet Lara on her weekly Facebook Live, on her blog, or at the Making Things Happen conference. Lara loves the women she works alongside each day, the smell of white lilies, getting her hands dirty in the garden, exploring local farms, and living in Chapel Hill, NC!
