Lindsey Mango How long have you lived and/or worked in Clark or Floyd counties: potential and to teach others how to do the same. Where do you work and please tell us about your job responsibilities: Please tell us about your definition of leadership — both in the workplace and in volunteer efforts: Since December 2017 I work for myself and own my business! I am a Life and Business Coach and special- ize in teaching women how to show up as their highest selves in order to create a life and business they are wildly obsessed with. As their coach, it's my job to show my clients exactly how our minds currently work to cre- ate the results we have in our lives. I work with women in one-on-one, in masterminds, and in group settings to change the way they are showing up and making decisions in order to create the results they desire in life. I wear so many hats being a business owner and coach: I am an advocate for my clients' dreams, I am their confidant and supporter, I am the CEO of my business running a team of people who support me in different ways, and most of all I am a forever-student to my growth as a human being to live to my fullest Leadership to me is the ability to deeply motivate and inspire people to take action and be their best because they want to — not because a leader wants them to. I believe leaders in the workplace and in volunteer efforts are built upon a foundation of self integrity, inner trust, and certainty. Please tell us about all volunteer efforts that are important to you and why: Volunteering to me looks a little different than what it typically looks like to others. My business has been completely built through connecting with people on and offline to help them become the best version of themselves. I volunteer my time and energy to women who have a burning desire to improve them- selves, their lives, their organizations, and their communities. I serve local business owners (specifically women entrepreneurs) by coaching them, guiding their business efforts, creating new opportunities, and even launched a podcast as a free resource to help empower women across the globe. In your opinion, what is the single best thing about being involved — living or working — in Southern Indiana and why: The BEST thing about being involved in Southern Indiana is the community. Being from a BIG suburb of Chicago, I am used to feeling like just another person in a sea of people. Here I feel like my voice is heard and everyone is willing to come together to sup- port, uplift, and help one another. If you could put your time and/or money into one thing in Southern Indiana to make it better, what would it be and why: I would put time/money into continuing to elevate locals to build the New Albany and Jeffersonville area with shops, restaurants, and local businesses. Living in Louisville for 10 years I never realized how much Southern Indiana had to offer! More local business owners need the opportunity to see how they can do what they love and thrive in Southern Indiana.
