In this episode...

On a mission to liberate 1 Billion Souls to take power of their own lives, Shelley Paxton wants everyone to be true to themselves and live life on their own terms. She found this renewed sense of purpose after emerging out of her own “crisis of the soul” - feeling empty and disconnected despite having a very successful career, most recently as CMO of Harley-Davidson. Having refueled and made her own radical self commitment, Shelley’s USD is bringing her magnetic energy to every situation and every interaction to influence others to explore what’s in their souls. She wants everyone to remove the “shackles of should” that hinder freedom, authenticity, and courage. You’ll feel Shelley’s energy on this week’s episode, so come hear about her Rebel Leader’s Manifesto (https://soulbbatical.com/articles/a-rebel-leaders-manifesto/) and her commitment to the Life is Priceless Foundation (http://lipf.org/donate).
