Today, Elaine and I discuss how she discovered her passion for encouraging others to seek support. She shares her philosophy on the “having it all” mindset and why you should be defining what that means for you. She explores why we often find it hard to ask for support and how having the right partner can help. She highlights the different self-care elements in business and the common attributes of the most successful female business leaders. She also shares why allowing space for honesty in your business is vital and how having mentors and other support will provide you with the framework for success.

“Maybe you can do it for yourself, but how wonderful would it be to be open to the universe trying to send support your way.” – Elayne Fluker
