Episode 50: Using Grit and Grace to Rethink Your Priorities in Life with Sally Thornton
Work life balance is something we all strive for, and Forshay CEO and Founder as well as TedX Talk sensation Sally Thornton knows a thing or two about those turning points in life that bring you to rethink your priorities. Having lost her brother in an unexpected accident while she was 8 months pregnant, the words said by her mother on that dreaded phone call “I’ve just lost my only son and you’re about to have your first born son” caused a sudden and necessary shift in committing to choose life over work. With both grit and grace, Thornton shares how you can successfully reimagine your future in both your work and in your life.
