What is Heartstrong?

Heartstrong means so much! It’s about overcoming adversity, developing confidence, and ultimately following your heart. It defines the kind of business I love creating, and the kind that communities love supporting... One that’s strong and sustainable but also guided from a place of kindness and intention.

Old school thinking about business will have you believe that to be professional, you need to leave emotions out because leading with heart is weak. Actually, the opposite is true… Becoming a Heartstrong leader is quite powerful and empowering!

I describe Heartstrong businesses as ‘collaborative and agreeable’, which is quite the opposite of ‘headstrong’- defined as ‘self-willed and obstinate’.
