"Put yourself first. It's not selfish. It's the best thing you can do as a LEADER". GBD70 After our guest's powerful presentation at AICPA ENGAGE 2019 in Las Vegas, we knew we had to share her passion and perspective here on the podcast. Texas-based Sarah Elliott is an influential CPA and business owner who has her heart set on giving other CPAs and women business owners in her region "permission to play". She talks about how we should do more than just manage our time: we should start managing our ENERGY. It's time for a new approach, rediscovering the fun, and using practical steps to put ourselves first, fight burnout and maximise impact. GIVE FEEDBACK.
