035 – Setting and achieving your goals with goal expert Brittany Hoopes

Goal expert, Brittany Hoopes, chats to Lisa about frameworks for setting and achieving your goals, and how you deal with the road blocks that come when the reality of life meets the dreams of our goals.  She takes us through what to do when we lose all hope, and how to achieve the recurring ‘new year’s resolution’ type goals such as losing weight and saving more.   Brittany shares with us her personal goal success rate and the golden thread that goes through great goal setters.  Soultiply is her podcast and also the name of  her company that does qualitative research on goal setting and achievement.
