Sometimes life requires you to know how to make BOLD decisions… in fact, that’s where the greatest leaps, the greatest triumphs, the greatest joy can be found. So what stops us from doing it? Let’s explore that.

My special guest today is Josefine Wanner and she’s simplifying how to make BOLD decisions.  She believes that when you get clear on your core values and intentionally create time to rediscover your joy, you become a better decision maker. Someone who sees the opportunity, navigates the risks wisely, and boldly steps out of your comfort zone. In fact, your work and life depend on it.

Here’s how. 


My special guest today is Josefine Wanner and she’s simplifying how to make BOLD decisions.

We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:

  • Why she believes that some people (women in particular) stumble on making bold decisions in their careers and what the first step is to change that immediately
  • How to begin to clarify and identify your core values
  • What role self-confidence plays in being a more bold decision maker and how to build yours up once again
  • How to get buy-in from your family and the key people in your life on the decisions that you are considering making, professionally
  • …and ultimately what the 4 core steps are that you need to implement in order to show up for yourself:
    • Commit to yourself being important 
    • Block out the “me time” in your agenda
    • Add recurring “emergency time” blocks in
    • Be kind to yourself

All this month, we’re focused on the theme of “Discernment” – which again, feels well timed given this is the season when many parents have children heading back to school and getting back into a new rhythm of life. It’s like the new year all over again, a fresh start and a new beginning. 

1000 daily choices is how you begin a brand new life. 

We will explore what that means on every level this month, both personally and professionally. 

As always, ping me over on Instagram @thesimplifiers – and tell me your thoughts:

  • What new ideas did this conversation spark for you? 
  • What big decision do you need to make today?
