There are SO many nuggets from my interview with Leah Frazier. That would be the Emmy and ADDY award-winning stylist, fashion journalist, professional model, best-selling author, TEDx speaker, influencer and publicist Leah Frazier. How can I not brag on this girl!

My biggest takeaway from our discussion?

“I don’t know what’s going to be handed to me next, but when it comes, I want to be ready as much as possible.”

I personally don’t think I’m alone in this, but I tend to function defensively versus offensively when it comes to life’s surprises. Meaning, I react when situations and opportunities arise, but I rarely make a conscious effort to stay in preparation. It’s a mindset, according to Leah, and it applies to everything from an openness to radical change to being vigilant about finances.

She also believes in manifestation, not unlike a number of my other guests. Hmm. Might I be seeing a trend?

“Anybody could design their life the way that they want it to be.”

I know many people who do not, and will not, allow themselves to believe this, but I’m with Leah. No, that doesn’t mean that you imagine something and it comes knocking at your door. What it does mean is a great deal of time and a ton of hard work, something Ms. Frazier is no stranger to. Staying focused and taking steps everyday toward your goal is the key to inspiring magic.

To be honest, I could just post a full transcript of this entire interview for my biggest takeaway. About every few minutes, I found myself swept up in another AHA! moment, and she even inspired me to change my mind on something. Curious about what? Listen to this interview, and I bet you’ll say AHA! a few times, yourself. Maybe even out loud.

Honestly, if you’re an entrepreneur, or have dreams of becoming one, you won’t want to miss this episode. Leah is just the kind of role model we all need to be following.
