Working out and being active are important for, not only your body, but your mental health. We find that breaking a sweat at least once a day, even if it’s only for 15 minutes, makes a huge difference in how we look and, more importantly, how we feel. Sometimes it isn’t easy to make the time, but we find that a cute workout outfit and a little inspiration is all it takes to get us in fitness mode.
On Tuesday morning we attended The Next Thing Now‘s fall lecture with Linda Rottenberg, author of Crazy Is A Compliment and the Co-founder and CEO of Endeavor. To say we were inspired would be an understatement; Linda left us feeling motivated, confident and excited to start the day. She talked about entrepreneurship, taking smart risks, work-life integration and shared stories about her company and businesses she’s helped.
Our favorite sound bites from Tuesday’s lecture
- “Leaders today need to be less super and more human.”
- “Integrate your passion and values into your work.”
- “It’s important to have a pay it forward mentality.”
- “Stop planning and start doing.”
A little about Endeavor
Endeavor is a global nonprofit that helps entrepreneurs from around the world turn ideas into action. While living in South America, Linda discovered that there wasn’t a word for “entrepreneur” and the concept of starting one’s own business wasn’t top of mind. Endeavor works with 22 countries and has recently expanded to U.S. cities. Linda’s goal for her company; “to have dreamers and doers feel that they come come and get unstuck.”
