I am eternally grateful to each and every single one of you who graciously takes the time out of your own hectic schedules to kindly read my weekly Feature Articles here on Thrive Global! I am equally grateful to you for also listening to the included podcast link of each phenomenal guest I have the honour and the privilege of showcasing each week on global radio – Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald!
There are many facets of life which truly resonate with me not least of which is…EMPOWERED WOMEN…hence my immense respect and admiration for recent radio guest, Kelly Hoey! You can find the full interview link Here:
It always amazes me when listeners and podcast subscribers are pleasantly surprised to learn that successful people interviewed on my platforms are in fact, down to earth people, in spite of and inclusive of, their remarkable levels of lifetime achievements and accolades. Kelly Hoey is no exception to this truth!
There is always that particular type of guest who you feel you are sharing tangible space with in the coziness of your own home while rekindling with one another over a yummy cup of coffee. Kelly Hoey was most definitely one of those special guests whom I struck that instantaneously synergistic rapport with while on the airwaves, together.
People who have an innate knack for magnifying their own realness and relatability to others are not surprisingly, the exact same people who are also top of their game – ahead of the curve – the visionaries – the authentic leaders of this world. This statement and observation of mine would most definitely encapsulate the essence of Kelly Hoey’s spirit and level of consistence resonance she magnetizes to others, and who energetically flock to her.
Kelly is wickedly smart, self-assured, well-rounded and staunchly grounded in her core sense of self, which I believe to be much of her SUPERPOWER! People who can effectively lead and govern themselves in their own lives are the attractor-factor for others feeling the draw to want to naturally align with the bright-lights of this world, which Kelly is and organically emanates!
This powerhouse woman is internationally known, recognized and sought out for her purpose-driven and impactful currency in the arena of Influence. As I often say, results do not lie, and Kelly Hoey has an ever growing laundry list of notable recognition, which is consistently synonymous with both her name and her impeccable reputation. She is a true driver of growth, expansion, vision, and leadership! Kelly continues to blaze the trail for all women who are on a similar path and who look upon her as the walking, talking, breathing example for how not only to do it and get ‘er done but how to do it extraordinarily well!
For all that you continue to do and for the ways in which you do it, Kelly, I want to thank you for your stellar contributions to the collective. I want thank you for your servant leadership and I want to thank you for continuously paying it forward and for being of service. I thank you for the gift of your time you so generously shared with myself, the loyal listeners and the podcast subscribers on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald! I celebrate you and I appreciate you, Kelly!
Kelly Hoey is the author of Build Your Dream Network (January 2017 Tarcher/Perigee).
Kelly has been lauded by Forbes (1 of 5 women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship) to Fast Company (1 of 25 Smartest Women on Twitter) to Business Insider (1 of 100 Most Influential Tech Women on Twitter) and Inc., (1 of the 10 Most Connected People in NY City’s Start Up Scene).
EBW 2020 included Kelly on their list of the 100 Most Influential Global Leaders Empowering Women Worldwide.
If you would have asked Kelly back in 2009, is she believed any of those descriptions would be used within a few short years to describe her, she just might have said, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?”
Kelly’s career story is one of transformation. Her career started out traditionally with a law degree and a job in a big Toronto law firm. She continued along a predictable career path, until a chance opportunity landed in her lap in 2009, and she stopped playing it safe, leaping at the chance to work with a visionary leader of a global business network for women. Co-founding a start-up accelerator, then an interim CMO role with an emerging tech company are just part of her journey of reinvention as an author, writer, creator, and investor.
Kelly has appeared on CNBC’s Power Pitch, moderated a speaker series at Apple, and More. Today, Kelly is a sought-out speaker, plus a contributor to publications such as GO BANKING Rates and Forbes.com, and guest host of the “Business Builders Show with Marty Wolff Podcast.
Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More!
Be your own Hero. Be your own Shero.
Be your own Leader. Be your own Best Friend!
Love & Gratitude ~ Lisa
