Andrea Bolder Olympic Gold Medalist
Another great conversation I had was with Andrea Bolder, the Olympic Gold Medalist. I had the opportunity to see Andrea run in high school, so to see her reach the pinnacle of athletic achievement was a great joy.
When I set down to talk with Andrea she shared some great tips on achieving success, not only in sports, but in life as well. We talked about following your passion and not following what others expected you to do. Advice she was able to give first hand.
After her professional track career ended, Andrea leaned on her degree from UCLA to find a job in the Bio-Chemistry industry. Working for several years to build a successful career in her new field, Andrea found herself like many other career professionals, unfulfilled. Basically going through the regular routine of the day.
She found herself depressed and hating life, in spite of having a loving family, she felt depleted. Andrea knew it was time for a shift. But with a family to help to support, and a “good job”, she would be crazy to leave her comfort zone.
The following are the steps Andrea shared with me to help her make her transition into her new life as the “Gold Medal Marketer.”
2. Seek advice from others
3. Consult with your family
4. Trust that inner feeling
5. Act on your dreams
These five steps helped transform Andrea into her new career. She knew she loved to help people and work in a team environment. Her parents had taught her how to be an entrepreneur and with her strong will, she had to find her niche. She found it by helping other entrepreneurs become successful in their business.
Now enjoying her new life, Andrea made the shift to live from her Genius Potential. Andrea has a new book out and is building a successful business.
