6 Star Leaders
Giving the Gift of Time; with Le-an Lai Lacaba
Show Notes

In this episode I met with an inspirational young lady who has a BHAG to impact 1 million Filipinos, by empowering them to become virtual assistants and help more entrepreneurs work from home.

In her young years she has already overcome some big personal challenges and gone on to publish a book and set up a company that’s attracted a prestigious award.

She’s proving that age is never a barrier to achieving ones dreams, and she is adding to the 6 Star movement by helping entrepreneurs work smarter, whilst giving them space for creativity and genius expansion.

Here’s a summary of our conversation:

05:10 - when her life plan suddenly changed

07:45 - the moment her life flashed before her

12:40 - her mum’s perseverance to save her kids

17:20 - why college just didn’t work out

20:04 - the spark that started 2XU

27:37 - giving people back 2 weeks of time

39:28 - working with clients 

52:00 - the challenge of working for ourselves

and much more…
