Ep. 8 How To Embrace Messy Life Transitions w/ Tiffany Lanier

Published on: 9th February, 2022

In this episode, Joy has a candid conversation with Tiffany Lanier on navigating and embracing messy life transitions. Tiffany is the leading voice in personal growth, change, and wellbeing. As a Public Speaker, Facilitator, and Founder of The Morning Shift Co, Tiffany helps individuals and organizations initiate personal and collective change through intentional morning experiences that support how they live, lead and work. Tiffany lives by a very simple yet potent motto: Live Purposefully and Lead Consciously. 

Her life motto certainly rings true throughout our conversation. After navigating postpartum depression, launching a business, and a cross country move, Tiffany found herself mourning the loss of her former self and searching for a way to reconcile her new role as mother and thriving entrepreneur. Today she shares lessons on embracing life transitions, how a morning routine changed her life, why she decided to extend maternity leave despite loving her work, and her waiting to exhale moment. We also laugh our way through advice she'd give her younger self.
