Shelley Paxton was the former CMO of Harley Davidson. It was a dream job in so many ways and yet, like so many of us, she was making bonkers decisions when it came to listening to her body and soul.
So she decided to take a Soulbbatical . To take a break from all the 'musts' and should' in her life and tune in to all the things she was avoiding.
It was big work. With a happy ending.
Soulbbatical - A Corporate Rebel's Guide to Finding Your Best Life is published by Simon and Schuster in January 2020. And WE got a sneak preview of the story and the woman behind it.
She's pretty remarkable and she has a whole bunch of gems for us all to learn from. You'd expect nothing less, right?
Create YOUR remarkable life.

On paper, Holly Ransom has a life we all look at with awe. In her early 20s, she was invited by the Australian PM to Chair the G20 Youth Summit and then life began to accelerate. She has delivered a Peace Charter to the Dalai Lama, interviewed Barack Obama on stage, was Sir Richard Branson’s nominee for Wired Magazine’s ‘Smart List’ of Future Game Changers to watch in 2017 and was awarded the US Embassy’s Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Leadership Excellence in 2019. This isn't even all of it. More recently, she won a Harvard Fulbright Scholarship and is taking two years to go deep into International Governance and policy. There's no doubt she's going to change the world. And she's only 29.
Here's the thing though, we never get to hear Holly's story, because she's usually on the other side of the microphone. And wow, is it a good one. For ALL of us.
Join Danielle, Co Founder of Remarkable Women as she asks Holly to share some of the workings of her own mind, including the story of why she never believed she would win the Harvard Scholarship and what she did to make it happen.
This is the story of what it's like to go ALL IN and perhaps a lesson in why we often choose not to.
