Show Notes

Beverly Flaxington holds a unique distinction among our roster of Work Talk Show guests. As an author, speaker, consultant, hypnotherapist, coach, professor, trainer, facilitator, expert, entrepreneur, and more — (Whew! We’re out of breath just typing that!) — she has more titles than anyone else we’ve ever spoken to! Speaking of interviews, she also calculates that she’s done over 5,000 through the years.

How on Earth does Bev get all of this done?? One way that she’s like our other successful guests, is that Bev swears by making a list to inform her daily focus and eliminate the noise. What needs to be done when? What can be farmed out? What’s her goal by the end of the day? What’s her goal by the end of the week?

In addition to her work, Flaxington is a busy mother of three who volunteers at animal rescues. One of our favorite stories is a Work Talk Show exclusive. Many of Bev’s clients presume she has a standing meeting on Monday mornings as she’s always busy. She does have a meeting, it’s just not with humans. That’s her time cleaning out the local animal rescue. This volunteer work is such an important part of her life, she schedules it and respects it as she would a meeting.

What Are the 3 Apps Bev Can’t Live Without? Hot 5 (5-minute video workouts), Remember the Milk (for list making), and Jelly for getting on-the-go intel based on photos.
