The Importance of Knowing Your 'Non-Negotiables'

What are your personal values? What are your non-negotiables? Said another way, what are the things you absolutely need or absolutely refuse to put up with in your job / relationships / life?

Have you thought about it? I mean, have you really thought about it?

In this episode of the Women Inspired podcast, you're going to meet a woman whose personal values and non-negotiables were so strong and clear that they helped her make the transition from her life-long dream job to launching and growing her own company into a massive success. All without compromising her #1 priority: being there for her family. 

This week, I'm so thrilled to introduce you to Kristi Piehl, former investigative journalist and founder and CEO of the company Media Minefield. Media Minefield is a news-driven earned media agency that moves past traditional public relations to mine stories, position experts and guarantee real news coverage.

Episode Take-Aways

In this episode, we hit on 3 powerful points:

  1. Your job is not your identity. You are so much more than the job you go to each day. You are a living, breathing person with passions, strengths, skills, and value to bring to the world. It's critical that you get to know that person on a deeper level.
  2. What are your non-negotiables? What are the personal policies or values that you are not willing to compromise on? Getting clear on these items will become your compass when you find yourself in times of turmoil and ambiguity in your life.
  3. Just start. Time and time again, I hear from incredibly successful guests who began massive projects, simply by taking one step at a time. Small movement. Small progress. Small steps taken day by day lead to incredible progress. You can do it!
