E047: Find Balance with the Third Option (Shannon Miles)

Shannon Miles is CEO & Co-Founder of BELAY, a virtual services company that supports busy leaders.

She is also the author of the brand new book, The Third Option: Why a Woman Doesn’t Have to Choose Between a Career and Family, but Can Actually Have Both and Succeed.

Here are the five fun nuggets from our interview:

1) To get to a yes, oftentimes you must first go through many no’s
2) Be intentional about how you spend your time
3) “No” is a complete sentence
4) There are no new ideas under the sun; however, there is only ONE you (with your unique set of stories)
5) Writing a book requires that you get over your own self-doubt and fear (so that you can help others).

We talked about her company Belay, as well as Entrepreneur Organization and Balanced Mentoring.

More about Shannon, from Shannon
I am the CEO & Co-Founder of BELAY, a company whose mission is to glorify God by providing solutions that equip our clients with the confidence to climb higher. In 2010, my husband and I formed Miles Advisory Group (MAG) to provide virtual support to busy leaders. We eventually expanded our virtual assistant model to include bookkeeping, copywriting, and web support services. In January 2017, we combined all our services under one name – BELAY. This name is significant to our leaders because of its meaning: To belay is to provide the support a climber needs to ascend…And that is precisely what we do for our clients. I am a staunch proponent of the third option and believe that a flexible work environment can empower you and your teams to succeed above all else.
