Magnificent Midlife

Nov 12, 2020

Clare Josa is an author of 8 books, a speaker, an NLP trainer and a leadership mentor. She started out as an engineer and uses a lot of that discipline in her soul-engineered leadership work.

She says that “changing the world isn’t so much about what you do, as about who you allow yourself to become. “
