Show Notes:

There is no shame in supporting yourself one way in order to cultivate creativity. – Linda Stacy

Linda is a speaker, author, and facilitator who has been navigating the corporate grind for the better part of 20 years. She works full-time for a management consulting firm in Boston as a corporate librarian and trainer, and is founder and CEO of LivingBluPrints.

Over the last 10 years, she has studied productivity, satisfaction, and success as they relate to individual contributors in professional environments.

With regard to mindset, the human condition (inside and outside of work), and the notions of purpose and satisfaction, her constant investigation (and experimentation) allow her to gently adjust her approach, stay on top of research and trends, and evolve. She brings gleaned insights and tools to her writing, speaking, and workshops.

Fueled by an entrepreneurial spirit, Linda is committed to helping working professionals achieve higher levels of satisfaction and fulfillment, and to being a good employee and a good human.

Linda recently (July 2019) published mini-book, Optimized YOU! Nine tips for thriving in an over-connected constantly interrupted world which is available on Amazon.
