Honey, I Blew Up The Business
My Minor Meltdown with Lisa Leighton
November 3, 2021
Lisa Leighton is a Joint Managing Partner at BHP, one of the UK’s largest independent Accounting firms and ranked the second-best firm to work for. But Lisa is the opposite of the accountant stereotype - she’s fun, creative and joyful. Coming from solidly working class roots she navigated an early personal trauma which could have hobbled her career before it began. But the work ethic which took her to the top had a dark side…creating a “minor meltdown” which forced a major rethink of how to approach work, and life... In this episode you will learn the “art of resilience” which Lisa applies to herself and her team. Discover how to quickly put things in perspective, get over your professional persona and practical ways to separate work and life. The power of a supportive parent and how sometimes you just need to “have a good cry”...or go for a run. This episode is a great down-to-earth examination of how to create more balance in your entrepreneurial life.
