The commitment, courage and character to live a growth mindset – Joy McAdams | EP50 recap
Ironwoman, mother of five, and corporate executive, this week we are thrilled to have Joy McAdams on the Ultrahabits Podcast to unpack just how she manages to get all this done!
For those of us who know Joy well, we have dubbed her the growth mindset queen on LinkedIn. Her focus on the growth mindset is far beyond theoretical, it’s embodied in her work, family life and of course absolute dedication to her Ironman pursuit.
Joy’s passion is to help healthcare practices thrive, not just survive. Her career started 23 years ago working for NBC television. It was this first job, that introduced her to a wide variety of industries. It also grew her love for video communication.
She quickly was drawn to the healthcare industry and saw its need for growth in marketing. Along the way, the social media world quickly became a key part of communication.
Joy not only understands social media but leads in this field. She is a LinkedIn Influencer that has built a community of over 100,000 followers and reaches 2 million viewers per month. She has spent the last 12 years teaching medical practices how to grow their practice through relationship building in the medical community and social media content.
In this episode we dive into Joy’s path towards developing the mindset that she has today, from her exposure to her dad who loved fitness, through the trails and tribulations of being a single mother, to eventually becoming an executive and ironman competitor. An area that I really decided to focus on, partly out of self-interest, is Joy’s philosophy on parenting, how she goes about facilitating a growth mindset and resilience within her children.
This is a must episode, I especially recommend this episode for the female corporate athlete, out there in the trenches kicking ass, whilst balancing the varying agendas of home life and the pursuit of competition in sport.
