Beate Chelette is a results-oriented woman leader with an entrepreneurial spirit and a proven track record in creating, launching and growing companies and brands. The Huffington Post just nominated her as one of 50 must-follow women entrepreneurs in 2017. Focused on supporting and training organizations that promote women, she is the creator of The Women’s Code, her signature system that educates leaders and helps companies devise strategies for balanced leadership. The Women’s Code creates and implements programs that improve organizational culture, foster productive work environments and help companies like Merck and the Association for Corporate Growth to improve their bottom line.

She is a respected speaker, coach, and mentor and is known as a “gender decoder” and is also a certified woman owned business and a Myers-Briggs practitioner. She is the author of the book, Happy Woman Happy World, which contains her trademarked system to help women achieve work/life balance – a book that corporate trainer and best-selling author Brian Tracy calls, “a handbook for every woman who wants health, success and a fulfilling career.” Through her online courses, one-on-one training and live speaking events, she teaches corporate clients about balanced leadership and advises smaller businesses and start-ups on Creative Entrepreneur strategies.

Once $135,000 in debt and a single mother, she successfully sold her image licensing syndication business to Bill Gates/Corbis in a multi-million dollar deal.

In this episode, Beate and I talk about:

  • Losing it all, starting from scratch, and then starting again
  • Writing a letter to the President of the United States – and getting one in return
  • How the Women’s Code came to be
  • Setting priorities
  • Intentional living – and intentional loving
  • Balancing the important details vs. the priorities
  • Where overwhelm comes from
  • Falling prey to the ‘superhuman paradox’
  • Giving yourself intentional permission to be human
