Inspiring Catholics to live their faith in the marketplace and discover that it is good for business
Why This Podcast?
To inspire, empower, support, challenge, and encourage you to connect Sunday with Monday through Friday in a secular, business world. It is my desire to help you live your Catholic faith in the marketplace and to discover that it is good for business. In fact, I bet that many best practices in business can be linked to Holy Scripture and our Catholic traditions. I hope to offer you practical ways to go forth and glorify God by your life.
We all have encountered situations at work where another person is behaving badly, and we get so frustrated that we just don’t want to deal with them anymore. While the easy way out may be to avoid or ignore them, it may not be the merciful thing to do. In this week’s episode of By Your Life, we’ll talk about how we are called to be merciful, even in the marketplace.
Dwight Eisenhower said, “Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.” That is because planning is not an event. It is a process. Once you put a plan in motion, you will be changing it.
When we think about how we conduct our business affairs, somehow, humility is not considered, or at least taught, as an essential trait required for business success. Is humility essential? Can humility be taught? We’ll tackle these questions in this episode of By Your Life.
The inspirational author William Arthur Ward said, “The price of excellence is discipline. The cost of mediocrity is disappointment.”, and if you’re honest, you’ll admit he is right. In this edition of By Your Life, we discuss the importance and the difficulty of the practice of discipline – both in disciplining others and ourselves.
Who am I?
I am a cradle-Catholic who is on this journey just like you. I’m a wife of an awesome husband, mother of two adult daughters, and daughter of an aging mother who lives with us. I am also a business person with 23 years of corporate business development experience and 15 years’ executive and business coaching experience. I am the author of the book The Value of Core Values: Five Keys to Success through Values-Centered Leadership. Although I love my day job as a business coach, I’m most fulfilled when I am praying, reading, worshiping and adoring our Lord.
Who am I not?
I am not a theologian, Biblical scholar, or trained catechist, but I’m learning. The more I read and study our Catholic faith, the lives of the saints, and our traditions, the more I find the connections to what makes businesses successful. There are wonderful lessons and I am passionate about sharing the teachings of the great theologians, Biblical scholars and Church leaders as they apply to your work life, so that you may benefit from the blessings of our faith.
Join me and together let’s go forth, glorifying the Lord by our lives.
