Episode 1: Why Luminary Leadership is the Podcast For You!

July 19, 2021


Pull up a seat to the table, and let’s elevate successful entrepreneurs into powerful leaders who are doing work that really matters. After working with countless entrepreneurs, I noticed a theme – no matter the level of success achieved, they get to a place where they are asking – now what?!

If you are here today, then you get it: you’re craving more impact, you want to do the work that means something and you want to be known for it. It’s not about growing a business anymore, it is time to build your legacy. Tune into the Luminary Leadership Podcast, a place where industry leaders come to break through to their next level of achievement, purpose and impact. 

You don’t just need another strategy, it is time for your breakthrough! 


[1:15] Our Mission

Welcome to the first episode of the Luminary Leadership Podcast and hear our mission and the idea behind it. While working alongside successful entrepreneurs for over a decade, I noticed that after achieving a certain level of success, all of them have the same unsettling question – now what? So, if you are ready to break free of just building a business and trading it in for the next level impact – true leadership, actual legacy – you have come to the right place. 

[2:30] How Do You Determine if You’ve Found Your Purpose?

The work that you are doing is not just about you anymore, it is bigger than you. You feel like there is another level calling you and you are ready to step into it, but it’s still all foggy and you are not sure how to get the much needed clarity? It’s not a strategy problem, but a leadership problem and how transcending that will give you an advantage like none other.

[8:50] Why Luminary Leadership?

A luminary by definition is a person who inspires or influences others, especially one prominent in a particular sphere. That is you – you are a luminary. Hear how Luminary Leadership’s mission to help you create a mission-driven business, build aligned wealth, and leave an impact, without sacrificing your freedom and what matters most to you.

[11:39] Why We Are Failing the Next Generation

This idea of Luminary Leadership Podcast was born out of the realization that entrepreneurs are failing the next generation. We are so worried about growing our businesses that we are not invested fully in raising leaders. We can talk about how well we are raising our kids, but behind closed doors we are not doing it right. This is why each week, in addition to our regularly scheduled episode, you’ll have a chance to hear our Raising Luminaries episode, an episode dedicated to anyone who cares deeply about doing the part in raising their kids right. 

[14:30] Trading Your Flexibility for True Freedom

Growing up in an entrepreneurial family made me realize that my parents had to make many sacrifices in order to honor what was most important to them – family. They had flexibility, but did not have freedom. This is why Luminary Leadership is all about serving at the highest level of impact while honoring your values. Our mission is to help you to elevate into powerful leadership, doing the work that you feel called to without sacrificing what matters most –  your freedom and what you value. 

[19:58] This Is Our Opportunity to Come Together Behind a Movement

The Luminary Leadership movement is not just ours, it is yours! So, invite your teams, your peers, your entrepreneur friends, your leaders so that we can elevate together. This doesn’t happen in a vacuum. We spent too much time disconnected from people, this is our opportunity to come together behind a movement, behind something that the world desperately needs right now, that our kids desperately need right now. No more ignoring the call!
