Mary Lee is an award-winning Executive Coach and expert on Mindful Leadership Influence. She is president of StartingOverNow.com, a consulting and mindful leadership development firm that helps you position your mindful leadership impact to enthuse transformation.

“I run a $24 million organization myself and know what it takes to show up at work in a way that genuinely inspires others to achieve both for themselves and the organization. I also know what it takes to leave work at the office and show up at home with complete availability to the people who matter most. And I know the mindful practices and mindset it takes to refuel your battery to sustain focus, high energy and happiness. This isn’t just success. It’s freedom.”
