Today I get to welcome to the show Jo Saxton!

Jo Saxton is a Londoner born to Nigerian immigrants (to which she credits her tenacious spirit), an author, speaker, podcast host, and leadership coach. She has spearheaded an initiative aimed to help women grow in leadership, and has written books on leadership, identity, and legacy. Her newest book is called “Ready to Rise: Own Your Voice, Gather Your Community, Step Into Your Influence.”

Her other books include More than Enchanting: Breaking Through Barriers to Influence Your World and The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Chris, and their two daughters.

On this episode, we discuss:

  • What it means to be tolerated vs. celebrated.
  • How to recognize what it looks like to be disempowered–and how to rise above.
  • And Jo gives me some coaching on how to move forward in seasons of transition!
